I like Laurie Colwin's "absolute pig" portions, i.e., I'm pretty sure I could polish of four of those babies (pasties) myself.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
I wish I could go back to having history classes where all we did was memorize names and dates and take tests. None of this "analyzing" crap. I'm so over college already!

* It's a beautiful day at 61 and sunny. I wish my loves were here to enjoy it with me.

* We have lived in this house for 14 month and I swear that I have yet to hear one of my neighbors use a pleasant tone when speaking to her young son.


I'm so excited to see flared jeans for spring 2011. Skinnies are only good for tucking into boots on me. I want some options for regular shoes.
Kiva! Microfinance works.

OMG!!!! SUSHI!!

So good after being stuck inside eating nothing good all week!!!

"Jane hassles one of the white women about not bringing supplies to class and tries to get her to list out various words in order and recall them. She continues to badger her and asks the same questions over and over. The young woman starts to get angry and talks back. The teacher ignores this and so eventually the woman gets so upset that she began to cry. The non-white students look at the white woman as if they had known it all too well. There is not the same shock in their eyes as their white classmates, who look very defensive."

curlyarca, what's the context of that clip? I'm assuming it's some sort of seminar, but there's no description on the clip itself.

Interesting. I'll have to check it out!

That's strange, eye color division. Don't most white people have brown eyes? I don't know, but do brown-eyed white people face more prejudices than light-eyed whites today in the U.S.? I understand certain ethnic backgrounds like Middle Easterners but Anglo-Saxon whites? White people here do tend to be of the blue-eyed light hair variety so maybe there are less brown-eyes than I thought, and blue-eyeds tend to keep to themselves in procreating for genetic reasons I've read. I still don't quite get the logic behind the grouping (I thought I saw a white boy in the brown line-up but not sure cause they barely showed them).

I've never heard of this seminar or this brand of diversity seminar. The diversity workshop I went to, I was expecting more people of color, but there were only a few of us including the professor. It was set up in kind of a question/answer/friendly debate, but a group of white students ganged up and argued with the professor on everything she said. I just sat there and snacked, tuned out the bickering, and got my credit for it. I would've been sad for that white girl if I was in this class. I don't like anyone to be yelled at.
Just watched Remember Me.

God that is a depressing film.

Here's the wiki page on it: Jane Elliott - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia . It was fascinating to see old footage of it (I saw it in college).

Thanks, Phoenix - yeah, I just did some reading and I get the blue versus brown now. Interesting, I've never heard of Jane Elliott.
I am lonely.


It's funny how I was reading "Lion Among Men" earlier, and there is this one passage where Brr (the Cowardly Lion) thinks about the fact that before actually talking to a human being that he was never lonely because he didn't know what it was like to actually have company. I can relate to this, I never really missed anyone because I never really found anyone I could stand for extended periods of time...... sigh.
