Fake cigarettes make you look like an idiot!

ImageImage

Truly, they do It’s one of the dumbest trends I’ve seen among college-aged Mormons.  Whether it’s Halloween or some poetry slam, or whatever the case may be.  They look it looks sexy and glamorous and cool and unique, but they really just look pretentious and pathetic.

I once threw a party, and some loser showed up with a fake cig hangin’ outta his mouth.  Guess how long he lasted before I kicked him out?  It was less than 2 minutes.

I realize I’m bein’ a bit harsh, but that’s never stopped me before. 🙂

(But I do like this song):

Alrighty, back to the main point:

Fake cigarettes

make you look like an idiot!

Although I am usually a big fan of Ellen DeGeneres,

I was a bit disappointed that for her Halloween special, she featured this young boy wearing a wrecking ball costume, an obvious nod to the infamous Miley Cyrus music video (read my critique of it here!).  The video is inappropriate (duh), and having this boy reference it is also somewhat inappropriate.

Don’t make things that are NOT cute/ funny try to seem cute/ funny,

especially when children are involved!

*Friends, I have LOTS of thoughts on Ellen.  The vast majority of them are positive! 

Stay.  Tuned.

Though I rarely (if ever) use profanity, a certain Halloween costume is a BITCH!

I’ll let the video speak for itself:

Regina George may think people can wear whatever they want on October 31st.

ImageBut Katherine Anne does NOT!

There are many beautiful, wonderful things in life in which to find humor & joy.

The Holocaust is NOT one of them.

If you agree with me (and you should!), please spread this message/post anyway that you can.

Oh, also I read a book by the German LDS General Authority F. Enzio Busche. 

It changed my life.

  Must write about it soon.  Until then, here’s a wonderful video by him:

But back to costumes (bookending again!),

here is one of my personal favorites of my own:

Strong women are hot, ya’ll.

Click here for some of my other Halloween hits (literally!) and misses…

And speaking of, if somebody’s costume offends you,

don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself.

Take a tip from my friend (pictured above!) Rosie (the Riveter).

And to sum up in one brilliant phrase my beliefs on costumes,

allow me to quote from THE greatest playwright of all time.

“There is much truth in jest (for good and for bad)”

~William Shakespeare

Now it’s time for a little text-to-self connection (my favorite part!):

Righteous Readers: what do your Halloween Costumes say about you (for good and for bad)?

PS.  If you think the fact that there is a Picture of a Pumpkin on this Post (about Halloween!) is a coincidence, THINK AGAIN.

Birth

Abortion is a loaded topic, and there is of course mountains more to say about it.  But let’s not overlook this simple truth.  Here is the LDS Church’s official stance.

Also, here’s a VERY powerful video.  It’s not graphic/bloody (no aborted fetuses), but again it’s powerful.

And raw.

And hopeful.

Lyrics here.

(TATW read them!)

What you want? Morning sickness or the sickness of mourning

BRILLIANT phrase-twist, Mr. Cannon.  Wow.

And don’t be emailing me about your special circumstances

and say I’m judgmental.

I know there are those circumstances.

I know that.

What are your priorities?

                  Oh, and thanks to this girl for inspiring me in this post, and in my life.

Screen shot 2013-08-18 at 12.34.03 AM

She’s a HUGE Red Sox fan (DUH!)

Screen shot 2013-08-18 at 9.22.37 AM

and I wouldn’t be the person I am without her. Image

But MOST importantly, I wouldn’t have watched the movie without her.

🙂

PS.  I have thought a lot about this idea of  hobbies/interests (ie Natasha Bedingfield) getting in the way of REAL life.  Check it stat: 

PPS.  In the end, Jimmy Fallon’s character gets his act together, gets the girl, gets to the game, AND the Sox win the 2004 World Series.  Every once in a while, EVERYONE WINS!  Take that, Curse of Bambino!

PPPS.  If my guy ever wanted to read about sports while I blogged on my Mac computer, that wouldn’t be the end of the world…

*blink and you might miss that there are 2 wedding dresses in this post.

I was a satirist…

Image

before I even fully knew what that meant!

Image

Alexander Pope and Jonathan Swift would be so proud!

Check out my approach to satire here. 

For those who may not quite understand, I was exploiting the stereotype that Mormon girls often get married and pregnant very young.  Here is another self-satire.
