My Post Secrets

Sometimes my anxiety feels like it's bigger than my God. I'm sorry Jesus.

My children make my life worth living. That's a lot to put on them. I really hope it doesn't screw them up one day.

Every time you try to comfort me by saying 'I would never have an affair, I'm not that type of person.' It reminds me that I am.

Sometimes it feels like my purpose in life has ruined my life.

Since when did it become ok to replace the phrase 'Congratulations on your pregnancy!' with 'So, is he going to get a vasectomy after this one?' Frankly, that is none of your business but thank you for letting me know how offensive my blatant reproduction is to you, A-hole.

I never want to have a supernatural experience. ever.

and finally...

When I was 14 a boy from my school, that I didn't know, died. I wanted to fit in with all of the other kids who were crying so I went to the bathroom and put red lip liner on under my eyes. It worked.

We're Not Republicants; We're Republicans!

Board retreat January 2008..I look like a defector...(:

Polygamist Bunny

Let me start off by saying I in no way condone having more than one wife or impregnating 14 year old girls. This behavior is simply not expectable.

That being said I don't know if any of the young girls rescued from their Mormon temple in West texas last week should necessarily be chalked up as a 'save' just yet.

Evidentially this temple in El Dorado was one of the most sought after by their believers, and only the most righteous were allowed to reside within its walls. Many of these children were taught scriptures from morning until night and constantly warned against the hedonism existing just outside their pious community.

So, my question is, will we prove them wrong?

If you live anywhere except under a rock I'm sure you know the answer looks grim. Yes, we do have laws that prevent old perverts from sexualizing young girls...how well they are enforced though is anyone's guess.

In the state of Texas, teens under the age of 16 legally cannot have sexual intercourse, under the age of 18 legally cannot have an abortion without parental consent, and under the age of 18 legally cannot be spread eagle on the hood of a Camaro in playboy magazine. So technically, yes, we certainly have saved these precious young women....at least for now. They have a good 4 years to be completely re-brainwashed and indoctrinated into the ways of our world; their savior. Lucky them.

Artsy Fartsy Pt.2

This is the bogus b.s. I was referring to in Pt.1:

Student Gives Herself Multiple Abortions For Her Art Project!

When I first read this story I honestly thought is was some kind of sick joke, like something out of The Onion.

I have often said nothing shocks me anymore, and I keep getting proven wrong.

Aliza Shvarts, an art major at Yale University is using abortion as part of her senior art project. She is not just using abortion, but her own purposefully induced abortions. Shvarts artificially inseminated herself as often as possible over a nine month period of time. During that time she would take abortifacient drugs to induce "miscarriages." Shvarts did all of this in the name of art, as she will display video recordings of her "miscarriages" along with blood samples in her project.

Students from both, pro-life and pro-choice groups on campus say their groups have taken no official position on the project. One student from the pro-life group did call it "surprising" and unethical.

How far is "too far"? I have to ask. I have to believe that even some of the most adamantly pro-choice people in this country would find this to be despicable. This world is going further and further down a road of total disregard for human life and it seems to have no end in sight. With stories like this one, and the fight in British Parliament to allow half animal - half human embryos to be made for stem cell research, will we finally say "stop"?

If this does anything, it gives us more resolve to continue the work we are doing at Stand True to bring an end to this culture of death. We know that we have a monstrous battle ahead of us, but we will not waiver or give up until every human person is protected and the sanctity of human life is restored.

Hear Ye, Hear Ye

I'm here to inform you that, from this point on, Catholicism as you know it and all of its esteemed followers are under my benevolent control...well, according to my mother, that is.

This morning she called me from Chicago, and in what I suppose was an attempt to make small talk, she inquired if 'all of my people were excited about the Pope's arrival.' Wow, My People, really? I feel so Nazarene suddenly.

Am I truly the only Protestant she knows who socializes with the likes of those Catholics cohorts?

Suddenly I'm the Angelina Jolie of the Roman Catholic church and I must say...I feel pretty darn honored.

Thank you mother for the promotion, I will send your regards to Benedict.

Artsy Fartsy

Art is for perverts, drug addicts, and megalomaniacs.

It's official, I'm joining a pentecostal church first thing in the morning, growing my hair out, curling my bangs to enormous proportions, and buying my clothes strictly at craft fairs from this point on. I no longer warrant a place in civilized society, because I have come to the conclusion it is anything but.

One of the things that originally attracted my husband and I to one another was our mutual love for indy music and avant guard art. He's an art minor and quite a true artist himself. I on the other hand am bad at math, and simply chose to become a right brained individual by default in an attempt to avoid having to balance my checkbook.

Some art I get; 90% I over analyze in an attempt to get. For the longest time I have surmised that a majority of artists acquire extra access to that dormant part of the human brain, whether it be through intense meditation or recreational drugs, and this belief has intrigued me greatly. Rather than experiment myself I've chosen to play it safe and stay on the outside peering in.

Recently though, I've come to the conclusion that most modern day artists (who are incapable of doodling anything more than a stick figure) simply choose their occupation in order to give purpose to a preexisting vice; whether it be substance abuse, a superiority complex, or just a carnal need to see other human beings in the nude. These are the 'artist,' of course, who throw a bloody tampon covered in whip cream into a bucket of razors and tell you to figure out what it means.

Don't get me wrong, I do acknowledge there is still rare, genuine talent out there, but our society has made it incredibly easy for impostors to flourish.

Upon making this discovery, I've decided I want nothing more to do with it. At one point I was intrigued by these individuals tormented existence but now thanks to A&E and can get my fill of them by watching episodes of 'Intervention.'

There are much more useful things we can spend our energy deciphering. Perhaps I'm just growing up...or perhaps I'm just getting old. It saddens me that I now see a difference between the two.

Abrahm will surely think I'm lame now, and come to the conclusion that he has been tricked into marrying a dull conservative who has become quite the cranial switch hitter. Hopefully the old saying is true though, and 'if' beauty is in the eye of the beholder than perhaps one day he can acquire a taste for the un-extraordinary new me....corn husk sized bangs and all.
