My fragmented Friday

Mommy's Idea
Not sure how true to Friday Fragments this post will be, but I have a very fragmented Friday ahead of me. I'm currently blogging while my daughter enjoys her breakfast and some Imagination Movers....

***I've fallen in love with another author. For a long LONG while I spent all of my reading on the Brilliant, talented, amazing, scruptious writing of Neil Gaiman---Stardust, American Gods, Anansi Boys, Good Omens, Fragile Things, Smoke and Mirrors.......etc (even his children's books ie. The Graveyard Book! excellent) Well when i reached the point where i had read all of his novels and his short stories and most of his poetry, I decided it was time to try a new author-And can you believe I found a new love! CHRISTOPHER MOORE ( not that guy who makes those controversial movies...) This Moore wrote Lamb: the gospel according to Biff, Jesus's childhood pal, Fool, Fluke;or I know why the winged whale sings.  Now I've only read Lamb and Fool so far, but he has captured me. 

**I will continue on to read some more of his stuff and let you know what I think!

***Ugh I watched MTV the other day and was disgusted by the portrayal of women and the treatment of women by the male stars of their shows.  Those Real World/Road Rules challenges are getting grotesque.  The men have no respect for women.  The ladies(loose interpretation for the women on those shows but still!) are ridiculed, teased, cursed at, humiliated.... its revolting.

***My daughter got married this week.... she's three! She describes her husband differently every time. Originally he was black and wore black clothes, and they had met in New Orleans.  Then he was pink with pink eyes but they still met in New Orleans.  Now he's shifted into Prince Eric (from The Little Mermaid) 
She cracks me up! :D


  1. I was LOL @ My daughter got married this week.... she's three!
    That is priceless

    and I am with you on MTV my how things have changed since my days of the 80's lol

  2. Oh, I love the fragment about your daughter getting married. Way, way cute!

    I wish I had time for books! Even just the titles of Moore's books sound interesting.

    Yeah, MTV has historically been pretty exploitative of women. Fortunately, my kids never watch it.

    Thanks for joining in this week. Welcome! :)

  3. ROLFMAO!!! Just wait 'til her husband as pointy ears and is on the Enterprise LOL. Too funny. And I so don't like MTV nowadays. When it first started, back in the day, it was it's just a bunch of BS. Have a great weekend :)


I love your comments!
