What the F is Wrong w/ People?

I am for equal rights for everyone-that is the first thing I need to say before my rant.
Okay, seriously, what is wrong with people? I don't understand why the Supreme Court has to deal with this crap when the world is having actual problems.
Today on FB a ton of people have been posting complete crap and some good things too.

I cut and pasted this from someone-I honestly don't know it was on a friend of a friend's page and she liked it. So sorry for not giving credit to a well written statement.

Seriously, I don't understand people sometimes. I am so sick of the "crazy" Christians trying to tell everyone else how to live. They need to read the bible they are thumping again, because as far as I can see they haven't a clue what Jesus was talking about.

I could go on and on and on, but I won't..here is the post.

Against gay marriage? Then don't marry someone of the same sex. If you're truly worried about the sanctity of marriage based on Christian values, remember Solomon and his many wives (so many that he could go years without sleeping with the same one twice), or the verse that tells you if your brother dies, you're to marry his wife (even if you're already married) and attempt to get her pregnant immediately. Remember Jacob, who married one sister but ended up sleeping with and keeping all of Laban's daughters on his wedding night. Lest we forget my favorite Christian edict regarding marriage, IF you rape a virgin, you must pay her father 50 shekels of silver and marry her and you may NEVER divorce her. The fact that rape is condoned boggles my mind. You sure don't see THAT verse on any Prop 8 or DOMA supporter's sign. If you want to call it "traditional family values" then go back to the original "traditional family" where men were allowed to sell their daughters or beat and/or kill their wife (or wives) and children and where divorce was a sin. You don't get to pick and choose your Bible verses to defend your point(s) and ignore any that don't jive with your version of a traditional marriage. I'm pretty sure Kim Kardashian's marriage (and I use the term loosely) wouldn't have qualified as traditional either but you don't see anyone holding up misspelled signs saying "God Hates Attention Whores" or "Popularity Addicted Airheads Burn in Hell" while attempting to ban her wedding. Point is, if two women or two men getting married has ANY impact on your marriage at all, then you have better things to worry about.

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…

Letter To My Sandwich

Dear Grilled Cheese Sandwich,

I just wanted to say thank you for being so yummy and keeping me full during these hard economic times. You are always faithfully there ready for lunch, or a snack, and sometimes breakfast. The way the cheese melts between your two slices of bread, make you irresistible to walk away from and impossible to ignore.

I love you completely with my whole heart. You were the only one who helped me through my college years when I was just new to the adult world. You helped me make the transition back into eating after quitting acting. You guided me through many a late night working in animation those first few years. Now you are back to help me survive through this hiatus.

I will always be grateful that you are there, cheap and easy. Your ability to keep me full for an entire week and yet not requiring that I empty the piggy-bank to do so means more than I can ever express. I believe that we will be seeing a lot of each other in the next few weeks until I start …
