Hodgepodge

Seems like my politics post was met with a big fat snooze...

I have learned my lesson...pictures of babies leads to much response, posts about Congressional takeovers not so much. Noted.

The girls had their six month appointment on Monday, and are doing really well. MA is still quite a bit bigger than her sister, but they have both grown well since their four month appointment. LK is now 26.5 inches long and weighs about 15.5 pounds (I think...I should write this down, or remember to bring their little blue books with me) and MA is 27.5 inches long and weighs 17.5 pounds. I know everyone loves percentiles, but I didn't write them down or remember them...they are both at varying stages of the middle for everything, though (except that LK is only like the 10th percentile of weight for her height...she is a skinny minny:-))

OK...now for some brain dumps, much related to television:

Should I care that Brett Favre sent pictures of his junk to a TV host? Should this really be the biggest news story in America?

Loving Mondo's chances to win Project Runway. And love him, too...he has really grown on me as the season has gone along. He is like a little Latin Pee Wee Herman:-)

Jersey Shore: One season was plenty...you try too hard now.

Man vs Food: can next season be Man vs. Diet? Seriously, you are getting fat, Adam.

Juan Williams: should be a bigger story. The case for public radio is sketchy as it is, and when that radio begins deciding what constitutes acceptable free speech versus unacceptable free speech...I think we have a problem.

And finally, just one more politics thought...I can't tell you how many times I have read criticisms of the President lately that he "hasn't done anything". That is incredibly confusing to me. He has re-fashioned the health care industry, dramatically upped a huge number of taxes to pay for it, totally turned the financial services industry upside down, massively upped our commitment in Afghanistan and spent nearly a trillion dollars in economic stimulus money. I could spend hours telling you why I think he has done a bunch of things wrong...but it is pretty hard to argue that he hasn't been doing anything...

Anyway...

Happy Friday!

I love your posts on politics...I am just too lazy to comment all the time (mainly because the firewall at my work makes me jump through too many hoops...)

i have to believe that pic of a man's junk really can't be Brett Favre. Innocent until proven guilty in my book. And I don't even really like the guy but honestly, this whole thing is not even worth the media. I think the chic who is accusing him is just looking for some hush $$$. But, then again...who knows! :)

I love Man vs Food. I watch it while I ride my exercise bike. It makes me want to stuff my face with foods I would never actually dream of otherwise consuming. But I agree with you: Adam needs to spend a little bit more time getting into shape if he's going to be able to manage this much longer. I worry about his arteries.
