7 Quick Takes Friday

** 1 **

Atticus and I put an offer on a house! It’s a lovely house; has two bedrooms downstairs, and the whole third floor is the master bedroom, with a private bath, and more than enough room for a baby area in the bedroom (or a sitting area before we have a baby).

It was built in 1936, and it has an old school black and white checkered kitchen floor, as well as a charming little breakfast nook.

it’s on a very quiet, very walkable street, about a block from a public golf course, which has areas where people can walk/jog.

“Our” house from the front

I hope we get it!

This weekend Atticus and I are going to West Lafayette to see a Purdue basketball game. They are playing Penn State. I’m very excited; I haven’t seen a college basketball game since I graduated from the Mount.

Go Boilers!

I found this post on Creative Minority Report, and had to laugh as I read it. The author is talking about his experience talking to a woman who is all systems go with the “natural” lifestyle, but doesn’t see any inconsistency in continuing to pump her body full of chemicals via hormonal contraception.

I could relate to his feeling of, well, bafflement, that women who won’t put a piece of meat into their bodies if it has a hormone in it, will put hormones designed to alter completely their body chemistry, into their mouths, daily.

*shakes head* It’s a very funny piece, especially if you’ve got friends or relatives for whom this applies.

You know why I love Creative Minority Report? Because they take things that make me want to tear my hair out, and actually make me laugh. The site is just darn funny. Take for example, the Tim Tebow Superbowl Ad shenanigans that are going on. Basically, the pro-choice establishment is loosing it. They seem to have forgotten that while abortion is legal, so is freedom of speech, and CBS is recognizing that by playing the ads of the people who can pay for them.

Of course this enrages the pro-abortion movement, who would like everyone to think that every single pro-lifer is an old, rich, white man, rather than a normal woman, and her NCAA record-breaking, amazing athlete son.

Anyway, I love CMR’s take on the situation, it made me laugh out loud to read:

“The CRR (Center for Reproductive Rights) tried to first say the ad, which they haven’t even seen yet, is too controversial. Yeah, a mom saying that you should love your unborn baby even though your kid probably won’t break every record in NCAA football history because her kid already did that but your kid might be pretty cool anyway is soooooo controversial.”

hi-larious. Go here to read the rest of it.

LaFleur Head of Security

Go to CafePress.com to find many, many LOST t-shirts.

I recently heard the song “Always” by Switchfoot for the first time. I don’t know if you have heard it yet. It’s really very beautiful.

“Hallelujah I’m a wretched (wo)man, Hallelujah every breath is a second chance, and it is always yours, I am always Yours…”

That’s all folks. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed weekend. Rest up, because next weekend we need all hands on deck for COLTS NATION!

  1. I’m falling in love with your house just hearing you talk about it! I do hope you get it!

    And yeah, that post was quite funny. Looks like I have another blog to add to the reading list!

  2. I am so happy CBS is airing that commercial. Last year, I don’t know if you remember the brew-ha-ha over another pro-life commercial a pro-life group was trying to get aired. I had it published on my FB for awhile…I’ll have to see if I can still find it.

    Anyway, it was a you-tube of a commercial where they showed the sonogram pic of a baby in utero. While music plays in the background, all the “what if’s” of this baby’s life were flashed on the screen….and they were all the kinds of circumstances surrounding President Obama’s entrance into the world to a single mom, no father figure…and then it ends with the video of Obama winning the Presidential election and the caption: ‘He might even become President of the United States’

    anyway…they didn’t get that one on last year due to “controversy” or whatever…but looks like CBS is going with revenues this year.

  3. Good luck with the house!

    I am also very excited about LOST! I was watching Season 5 last night at a friend’s house, and I am so ready for Season 6 now. So many questions! But now there are so many things that I feel like I forgot, so I’m trying to decide if I have enough time to watch more before Tuesday. Well, Wednesday in my case. Season 6 of LOST will be coming out, and I will have to be sitting in a gym watching wrestling. Not okay!
