Life With Boys (BLW Contributor)

1

Wrapped In Chaos

Remember in grade school when us girls used to think boys were weird, gross or had cooties? Well..after having 2 boys, I can say that they are an interesting breed. They ARE weird and sometimes gross!

There are things/traits I have come to learn and never would have known until now. Here are the top 10 things I’ve learned about boys under 5 yrs old:

1. Boys like to stick things up their nose or in their ears. Why? I have no clue. See exhibit A.


2. Boys are messy..like really messy! My house gets messier faster than I can clean it. I swear a tornado blows through my house every day.

3. Boys are whiny and cry babies..more than little girls. Seriously. My daughter was needy when she was little, but never an emotional wreck like my two boys.
4. Boys are very hands-on and like to touch EVERYTHING…

On the Electoral College – Are you sure you want to reform the Electoral College?

3

Pure Blather

Last time, for those of you not paying attention or somehow reluctant to scroll down and see the last post, I discussed the Electoral College and its historical background, and how it means we don’t elect our president by a direct popular vote.

There are two things to keep in mind when contemplating a reform of the system. First, changing it would require a Constitutional Amendment. You’re just not going to get enough small states (the ones that benefit from the current system) to go along and voluntarily give up influence.

Secondly, though, nowhere in the Constitution does it say how a state must choose its electors. So if one wants to try to reform the Electoral College, the way to do it is in the selection process in the individual states.

There are a two proposals that have been getting serious consideration.

RIP Carrie Fisher (BLW Contributor)

The Vintage Toy Advertiser

So sad to hear that Carrie just passed away. I know she did plenty of other great work but she’ll always remain in my heart for her role as Princess Leia. Whenever I saw her interviewed on TV she was always funny and seemed a likeable person. My thoughts go out to her family and loved ones.

Weekend Inspiration – Roll the Dice by Charles Bukowski

2

roll-dice

if you’re going to try, go all the

way.

otherwise, don’t even start. 

if you’re going to try, go all the

way.

this could mean losing girlfriends,

wives, relatives, jobs and

maybe your mind. 

go all the way.

it could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days.

it could mean freezing on a

park bench.

it could mean jail,

it could mean derision,

mockery,

isolation.

isolation is the gift,

all the others are a test of your

endurance, of

how much you really want to

do it.

and you’ll do it

despite rejection and the worst odds

and it will be better than

anything else

you can imagine. 

if you’re going to try,

go all the way.

there is no other feeling like

that.

you will be alone with the gods

and the nights will flame with

fire.

do it, do it, do it.

do it.

I had a minute of free time and so I decided to watch some TV. Sitting, minding my own business, I came across the Ellen show. I thought why not have a look. That’s always fun.

Wrong! It just aggravated me. There she was, Kendall Jenner, promoting her and her sister’s new book, discussing their clothing line and make-up line, and modelling, and family drama, and social accounts, and the diets and exercises only they know, and the nature’s law that enables them to move the pounds from their whole body to their asses only. And blah blah blah.

It made me upset to think about the way the entertainment business is being run these days. Rare people care about quality of the work. They just want money and lots of it.

I mean, come on! Authors who are good and have written a great and interesting novel…

Canary in the coalmine

The Angry Generation-Xer.          Copyright© T. Riggs 2016

If I had any alter-ego that fulfilled all the animosity of my psyche not being addressed by the bitchy 15 year old that forever resides in a quiet corner of my brain – it would be The Angry Generation-Xer. Juxtaposed, the two give balance to my anger. The 15 year old is the thinker, re-watching old movies, re-reading books, and providing a running commentary when she finds something particularly annoying or amusing. The Generation-Xer is the drill sergeant.

I remember in my early-twenties, first hearing the term “generation-x” and wondering, first; why the heck we needed to label it, I mean real 1980’s recession survivors took a seam-ripper to their Members Only jackets to remove the logo. Kids in the 80’s refused to be labels and walking advertisements. Anarchy was the way… we were too cool to have labels.

Secondly, I…
