Today I have 100+ pages to read for a test tomorrow – so I’m blowing off some steam.
2 things that burn my biscuits.
1.) Loestrin 24 Fe Hawking their 3-day period birth control pill on my television.
I’m not saying that I have anything against the pill, on the contrary I think its great. I’m just totally disgusted with their marketing ploys.
a.) who wants to be bothered with 7 WHOLE DAYS of being able to do nothing!
They show the girl sadly looking at her calendar and knowing that she can’t go on that camping trip with her boyfriend because of her period.
*Learn how to plan better!
b.) they also play up the fact that this will lessen or elimate acne.
Great! Yeah, yeah, this is a good thing to use if you’re sexually active and not ready for kids but really, It’ll clear your face up!! That’s what’s important!
*See a dermatologist, don’t mess with your reproductive system for better skin.
Is our ability to propagate the human race such an inconvenience? Would we rather just stick it in a jar and shove it to the back of the cabinet until we’re ready to use it because it interferes with our plans and guys think its icky. Can’t we celebrate that it is an essential part of our womanhood, that the ebb and flow of life exists in our wombs.
2.) Are we actually worshipping cars now?!?
Isn’t gospel music the vocal expression of devotion and love for the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and his father, the Almighty? Isn’t this a little golden calf-ish?
* This season on American False Idols; Sex, Money or Cars? Who will win your votes!
Not that I’m religious, haven’t been to church regularly in over a decade but this just feels dirty to me.
I’m going to go finish my book and try to find things that don’t tick me off.
Hopefully a happier, crafty post later today or tomorrow.
