Happy VGNO! Congratulations to the graduates. We'll be at my son's 8th grade graduation tonight, so I thought I'd get an early start.

Time For A Party Game!

As I look around my house I see a LOT of Barbie's. There's the Barbie in her scuba suit and the Barbie who's a Vet. These Barbie's are outside on the swing-set and in the garden too. But, these dolls don't represent the way I think they should. If I were a Barbie I would be "Sunscreen Barbie". Follow the chart below to see which Barbie you would be.
"Modern Barbie"
Use the chart to find which Barbie you are. Use the letter of your first name.

A - D = Sunscreen Barbie
E - H = Lactose Intolerate Barbie
I - L = Migraine Barbie
M - P = Blogger Barbie
Q - T = Mini Van Barbie
U - Z = Bi-Polar Barbie

Now, which Barbie are you? If you need to tweak this a bit, have fun!

Saturday is Anastasia and my 5 year anniversary, but as far as I know we are staying home this whole holiday weekend, no plans.

Even though I think we should wait until next weekend to plant our vegetables, I'm willing to bet I will be out voted. We'll see.

Miss CA's Mom, Gay?

Star Magazine is reporting that Miss California, Carrie Prejean's mom had a lesbian affair that ended the night of the Miss USA pageant. Miss California Shocker: Mom's Gay Affair - Star Magazine.

Ok, let's say it's true, do we really believe that Miss CA had no knowledge of it? I'm willing to bet her response to Perez Hilton was a calculated dig at her mother. That's just my opinion. I think that no matter how much you think that you are keeping something like that a secret, people likely do know and they just don't want to confront you or even mention it. Think about it, if you are gay or lesbian, when you came out, how many people you told said they already knew/figured it out about you?

Remember the Midnight Special with Wolfman Jack on Friday nights? Somehow I must have missed the AC/DC performance, and I love AC/DC. I saw them at Alpine Valley in Wisconsin back in the day. \--/

Illinois Religious Freedom Protection And Civil Union Act (HB2234)

To those of you clicking over from my post at Lola's Diner - Groundbreaking Moment, thank you for stopping by.

Equality Illinois had sent me an email letting me know that "The end of the Spring session of the Illinois General Assembly is approaching. There is a good chance that we can pass the civil union bill before the end of the session." Equality Illinois asked that I send an email to my Respresentative to ask her to support this bill. Whenever I get these emails from Equality Illinois I always respond. Here is the reply I got from my Representative, Renee Kosel:
May, 2009

Dear Constituent:

I recently received your e-mail asking for my support of HB2234, legislation that creates the Illinois Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act.

The majority of my constituents who have contacted me regarding this legislation, and civil unions in general, have been in opposition to the issue proposed in this legislation. I have serious misgivings about this bill and feel it ultimately would redefine marriage, which I consider to be between one man and one woman.

Thank you for caring enough about this issue to take the time to write to me.

Renée Kosel
State Representative-81st District
Assistant Republican Leader
I really feel the need to craft a reply, however I feel it would fall on deaf ears. Her response angers me and I don't know if I can be as articulate as I know I can be. Part of me does not believe that more people who are opposed to this bill have contacted her.

How would you respond to this email? Please post your thoughts in the Comments Section.

Thank you!

Say It With Me - It's About Time!

Drew Peterson Arrested On Murder Charges in the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. "'I guess I should have returned those library books,' a handcuffed Peterson cracked as he was being led into State Police headquarters."

Check out the mug shot in the article, doesn't it look like he's smirking?

Bail has been set at $20 million dollars.

View more news videos at:

The Will County Special Grand Jury returned a 2 count bill of indictment today, charging 2 counts of first degree murder in the Kathleen Savio case. The case will be heard in Will County, unless a change of venue is granted. (Please call me for jury duty, please? Wow, would that be a fascinating case to be on. Call me crazy, but I always enjoy the prospect of jury duty and although I have been called to serve, I have never been assigned to a case.)

Drew is currently at the Will County Adult Detention Facility in Joliet. Perhaps he can share a cell with Christopher Vaughn?

Joe The Plumber Knows What Queer Is???

If you're stopping by FCR, chances are you aren't reading Christianity Today's Interview - Joe The Plumber. So please, feel free to click on the link, read and come right back.

Ok, done? Hmmm, my first comment about this article would be, who really cares about what Joe The Plumber says about Conservatism, Republicans, Evangelicals, or anything else for that matter?
Joe The Plumber said, "People don't understand the dictionary—it's called queer. Queer means strange and unusual. It's not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that." Let's clarify for Joe The Plumber, just exactly what queer means, and before we do that, perhaps we should edjumicate him on the parts of language. Those being, Adjectives, Verbs and Nouns. this is from Dictionary.Com - Queer:
1. strange or odd from a conventional viewpoint; unusually different; singular: a queer notion of justice.
2. of a questionable nature or character; suspicious; shady: Something queer about the language of the prospectus kept investors away.
3. not feeling physically right or well; giddy, faint, or qualmish: to feel queer.
4. mentally unbalanced or deranged.
5. Slang: Disparaging and Offensive.
a. homosexual.
b. effeminate; unmanly.
6. Slang. bad, worthless, or counterfeit.
–verb (used with object)
7. to spoil; ruin.
8. to put (a person) in a hopeless or disadvantageous situation as to success, favor, etc.
9. to jeopardize.
10. Slang: Disparaging and Offensive. a homosexual, esp. a male homosexual.
11. Slang. counterfeit money."
Joe, you're completely right, queer is not like a slur, it is a slur. Note that I've bolded "disparage" in each definition. From Dictionary.Com, slur means:
"–verb (used with object)
1. to pass over lightly or without due mention or consideration (often fol. by over): The report slurred over her contribution to the enterprise.
2. to pronounce (a syllable, word, etc.) indistinctly by combining, reducing, or omitting sounds, as in hurried or careless utterance.
3. to cast aspersions on; calumniate; disparage; depreciate: The candidate was viciously slurred by his opponent."
In the article, Joe The Plumber stated "I've had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn't have them anywhere near my children." That's too bad really, that he feels that he wouldn't want homosexuals near his children. Perhaps Joe has the word "homosexual" confused with the word "pedophile"? Or does he think that homosexuality is catchy, like the flu?

Again, why does anyone care what Joe The Plumber (is he even a plumber yet?) thinks?

Ann asked if anyone had brought anything to a potluck that no one was eating. I already posted on
Lola's Diner the only one I could think of. I did once make all the food for my sister's wedding. Thankfully all the food was a big hit.
