Thoughts:

  • You know in movies and TV shows, when they’re looking for someone and they look in their bedroom, and the bed is made, and they say, “She never came home last night, her bed hasn’t been slept in”?  Couldn’t it just be that she made her bed before leaving this morning?  How can they tell the difference?  (This has bugged me for years.)

This week in stupid politics:

  • I really try not to get political here, but this really deserved to be highlighted.
  • Utah State Senator Aaron Osmond is trying to end compulsory education in the state of Utah.  “Some parents act as if the responsibility to educate, and even care for their child, is primarily the responsibility of the public school system,” Osmond wrote. “As a result, our teachers and schools have been forced to become surrogate parents, expected to do everything from behavioral counseling, to providing adequate nutrition, to teaching sex education, as well as ensuring full college and career readiness.”
  • So, ending compulsory education is going to magically make parents take responsibility for raising their child?
  • Although, I suppose this would be awesome news for some parents, the ones who struggle to hide and explain away signs of abuse.  No more lying about Timmy falling into a doorknob!  Just keep him locked in the closet, and no one will know he’s missing!

Writing Progress:

  • eh…
  • I spent the beginning of the week on a good writing sprint, then died at the end of the week.  I just can’t seem to get a feel for anything these days.  (More on that in a later post.)

What’s Making Me Happy this week:

  • Kids react to “Controversial” Cheerios Commercial. I love how all the kids are very confused about the controversy.

What’s making you happy this week?
