Sunday Selections 7

Wedding bells were in the air this week as KIM's, the wonderful woman who hosts this meme, daughter Veronica got engaged. So I chose to share pics from my brother very simple wedding(a justice of the peace in a hotel conference room in Maryland). He got married on April 4th and this April two days before my nephew, his son, turns 5 months old will be his 2 year wedding anniversary. I know they wasted no time.

Not sure what the title should be but thos is pretty much just a quick update on stuff

So I bought some food from an Austrian goods site and so far I have only tried some jellies and they were good I am waiting to try Vegemite this weekend just in case I don't like it so I have time to make something else for breakfast. The other stuff is mostly chocolate and biscuits.

School has been stressful I don't get enough of a break between terms and it has been getting to me. Plus I am taking finance and I really don't like the class I am definitely not going to be able to the money side of business without help from others it is just not my thing.

And that is all for now.

Sunday Selections Sunday Selections

For this weeks selections I have chosen to show off my tattoos. I have three right now, want more but they are a very expensive hobby. So for now I have three. Anyways Sunday Selections is brought to you by Kim @ Frogpondsrock.

Most recent tat, and my favorite.

Second one I got, it has faded because I took Aidan one day to the park and didn;t realize how sunny it was and I sunburnt the tat so now it is not as dark.

The First tat I ever got.

This is the same tat as above but from a cooler angle.

Not Much Today

I have had a very easy week. Have had the last three days off so that has been nice, but other than some easy days off I haven't done much. I am trying to go for a quality over quantity this year so there may be big gaps between post, or I may go Sunday Selection to Sunday Selection each week. Just giving a heads up to all you reading this.

Sunday Selections- Snow in Central Texas?

So snow where I live is not very common. It has snowed in the past and as a child I did get a few snow days, though never in the same year (except for my freshman year of high school we got at least three and had to have a make up day at the end of the year)but still not an every day occurrence. Well yesterday(Friday) it snowed, and a lot, like a new record for the area but when I say a lot I mean like an inch. I know we can't handle snow and well most of my snow days were really ice days but hey I still had no school. SO that is why this weeks selections are snow pictures. Plus it was in the 70's on Monday so it really isn't fair that it got so cold so fast, because Tuesday it was in the 30's and it just kept getting colder. But I digress, Sunday Selections is a photo meme brought to us by KIM.

That was my car at 7am.

Oh and we still had snow this morning but because we have a really covered porch, it was below freezing last night, and had yet to melt. But it is gone now and we are back in the 50's/60's.

*All temps are in Fahrenheit, you know cause I grew up with that, so if you know Celsius sorry for no conversation but I think it would be like going from 21C to -1C over night.

Americans are Prudes

Yes I said it. I believe I've said it before. And yes I believe it has to do with Puritans being some of the first to inhabit what would become the US. I mean hey when tracing back my family I can find relatives that came over on the Mayflower so heck my ancestors were Puritans. But really with all that is out there now Americans are still Prudes. I mean a show called Skins just starting airing on MTV and it is a remake of a British show and I watched something that showed a tweet about the show and this person is probably the biggest prude out there, they said sex, drug and what not with teens may be ok for the UK but not in the USA. This person obviously has no clue what goes on in highs schools in America. This show may be a remake of a British show but dang does it nail high school life. And no not every one has a high school experience like that shown on the show but really I saw/heard about more sex and drugs then I have seen so far on this show. I mean in you walk into most high schools and just listen to the students you will hear about a party you will hear about sex and drugs and heck walk into a bathroom and you may even smell the pot some kid was smoking before school. Don't get all freaked out about a show that is rated TVMA, I mean if you're an adult and don't want to watch it don't and if you're a parent and don't want your kid to watch it set the parent control or take the TV/computer out of your kids room. Because seriously I like Skins as it is the first show that actually shows how teens talk and what they talk about. So I am so sorry if most Americans are just a bunch of Fucking Prudes that need a reality check on what goes on in teenage life, heck and I grew up in a small city that requires a car to go anywhere and this stuff went on, well mostly in the school because you knew you could reach people. I may have never been in a bathroom when someone was having sex but I sure as hell heard about it. Teens will be Teens and this show is not going to give them any new ideas that stuff is already happening and has been for well pretty much as long as there has been school, my mom says this happened in her schools but hey she did grow up in the 70's but she also says it went sown when my grandparents and great grandparents went to school, so really Americans need to stop being stuck up prudes and either parent their children themselves or stop giving a crap if they don't have kids because I am seriously getting sick of people talking about how bad a influence Skins is.
