If I haven't visited you the past few days, please don't desert me or think I don't love you anymore. I have just had so much going on, and no time to wander. But I will come see you today!
Isn't it just the best when someone mentions you on their blog - and is complimentary about you? Its so often that people try to be snarky instead of nice and they end up being just mean. But - I had the privilege of being mentioned on WS Cross's blog, and here's what she said about yours truly:
"A True Jersey Girl is pretty much representative of the modern woman today: opinionated, generous, funny, talkative, down-to-earth, a lady who speaks her mind and has lots of friends leaving funny comments on her site. Sub-titled "Big Hair, Bon Jovi and Bruce," she's just as likely to show you her family photos as tell you why the governor pissed her off recently. Ever wonder how Jersey girls think? Here's your chance to find out."
Aw, I am blushing. Well, go on over and check her out (you are all adults, right?). You will be glad you did.
RockStar INXS: If that girl Jordis does not win this whole thing, the only reasoning can be that they don't want a chick singer. Her voice is phenomenal (it gives me chills), her stage presence is amazing, and the emotion she portrays in her songs is tremendous. If INXS doesn't take her, they are morons. And whatever band does snatch her up will be on my list of "Next CD To Buy."
Did anyone see that show about feral children on TLC the other night? It was a documentary about kids who are basically abandoned by their parents (mostly due to alcoholism) and are raised by dogs. The kids have been fed by stray dogs who bring them scraps of food they find, they are kept warm by the dogs snuggling with them, and in some cases, the dogs have even breastfed the kids. All true stories. It was facinating to see how the kids just cannot learn language beyond a certain point because it has to be learned by a certain age or the brain shuts down. The most disturbing thing (other than the glaring fact that dogs are more capable of caring for children than some humans are) was that one of the "mothers" who left her kid locked in her bedroom for 13 years (the girl could not speak at all; she had never been spoken to) was somehow allowed to make the decision at some point that the researchers and language professionals who were helping her had gotten too close to her. She was then put into one adult home after the next, never able to see the only people who ever cared for her at all. I don't get how a woman like that gets to make any decisions, for anyone.
Finally, they are going to makeover Patsy's house!
And finally, try this. Its pretty funny!!! Have a great Thursday!
