A-Z Challenge Begins

It's the beginning of April's A-Z Challenge, which gives me the chance to talk about a most unusual turn of events. Stories say Mary conceived with immaculate conception, so maybe my story can join the history books, too. I'm pregnant!


Yes, I'm married and whatever else goes along with it, but I also had a hysterectomy almost two years ago. Why did I keep those dang ovaries? My doctor said, "I couldn't get pregnant."

She lied! 

For how else would one explain the great bulge that has crept up around my middle this year?  It's big, it's round, and it means my adult children will have a little brother or sister to play with. Maybe it's twins? Heck, I don't know. The bump is big enough for two.

So, I'll keep you posted on my latest development. In the mean time, have a happy April Fools Day.

#MM: Happy Birthday to My Mother-In-Law

 

Today is my mother-in-law's birthday, so I figured I'd play a little Kiss for her. I know this is just the band to write a beautiful ballad for Beth.

Family Traditions: Let's Make Dad Mad

The Blogging Lounge asked for family traditions from my childhood, but I'd rather tell you about the one from my second family. It was a game my kids used to play before every road trip called, "Let's Make Dad Mad." It would start with kids squabbling in the back seat. Then, my husband would stop the car, usually before we reached the end of the driveway. We would sit in the car for thirty minutes with Mitchell threatening for us not to take the trip. I would plead with the kids to stop fighting, but that didn't happen. Finally, after a long delay, the kids would hush, and we'd start out on our vacation. It happened so often, we considered it a family tradition.

Memories of the Clinton White House

A German friend of my daughters decided he wanted an internship in Australia. What he should have done is brushed up on his English before walking into the business establishment;  for he was met with strange looks when he repeatedly told everyone he was looking for intercourse.



Disclosure: My daughter recently sent me a text saying, "That's not exactly how the story goes." However, this is the original story that made me laugh, so I'm sticking to it!

#MM: Ryan Dolan - Start Again



His Classmates Thought Making Fun Of Him Made Perfect Sense, But Then A Senseless Thing Happened


I absolutely love this song by Ryan Dolan; the strings are gorgeous, aren't they? The message in the song is made more poignant when you know that Ryan came out recently. Its message is one that needs to be repeated until we all start listening.

The Blogging Lounge Wants Turmoil

Ariana Browning has given us the blogging topic of turmoil. That word brings me way back to those student days when the end of the semester would come. We'd spend so much time studying for exams that we wouldn't have time to shower. As a result, lots of oil would form in our hair. Term oil!


What? I misspelled "term oil?"




Let me try again with tern oil. Those were those poor birds who got their pretty little feathers covered in oil from the mean companies that caused spills.



No? That's not what the prompt is?

They say third time's a charm, so how about burn oil. Those sun gods and goddesses use it on the beach to get a better tan, but they just end up getting burnt.

You say three times is not a charm?

Oh, turmoil. As in a great disturbance? Well. I don't know anything about that.

#MM: Rapper's Delight

This is good. LOL!
I've always loved this rap song, but it's 
even better when done by Brian Williams!

Pompeii

Mitchell and I saw Pompeii in 3D. This movie proved to be great entertainment with its engaging plot, fabulous sets, and hot male lead–since it was too dark in the theater to stare at my handsome husband. Pompeii proved to be everything a Hollywood disaster film should be, but it wasn't real.

As someone who has actually been to Pompeii in Italy, the teacher in me screamed, That's not what really happened! So I must correct the plot for all the young and impressionable. I found the historical accuracy so disturbing that a warning sign needs to be posted for students: WARNING. The events in this film are fictional. With sign in place, one may now enjoy this exciting movie. 

Here's the real deal.


When Mount Vesuvius erupted, there was no time to panic and dash away from spitting rocks and slow moving lava. None of the poor souls fossilized in ash appeared to be running for their lives. At most, they found time to shield an arm over a face as lava rushed at them. Furthermore, the city I toured remained totally intact rather the war zone depicted in the movie. 

Although Vesuvius' eruption was totally wrong, I was pleased to see what went right. For example, the ancient pizza parlor operated with smoke from the oven and a circular indent in the rock was correct. Also, the homes with detailed floor designs resembled those I'd toured too, except the movie set contained the beautiful plants and water that has disappeared from modern Pompeii. Also, the movie producers wisely failed to include the swastika signs that symbolized goodness back in 79 AD. They did, however, show the political unrest of the times. One can actually see the dissatisfaction of the people through ancient graffiti perfectly preserved on stones throughout the city.


Also, the movie failed to picture one of the most interesting and disturbing aspects of Pompeii. The city was dotted with whore houses complete with wall drawings for sailors who did not speak the language. One simply entered the brothel and pointed to exactly what they wanted. Yay for Hollywood. For once, they didn't fall into the old sex scenes to sell movies.
