In church yesterday I was looking across the choir loft at one of my Facebook friends (hey Kim!) who has been posting Black History Month quotes. Yesterday’s was from Bill Cosby: It isn't a matter of black is beautiful as much as it is white is not all that's beautiful. I think Kim is a beautiful woman (inside & out, actually) and I just really don’t understand why a person with her coloring would ever not be considered beautiful. I looked down at my hands and they were all pinkish looking & I wondered why this skin color was always considered preferable. Apparently the people who care about beauty weren’t in charge.
Lots of stuff to discuss about the Superbowl. Yay Packers! I’m not really a Packers fan, but maybe I will be now. I could use some fair weather. I missed the Star Spangled Banner – apparently it was butchered? But I did hear the little patriotic message read by Michael Douglas, comparing the Superbowl to World War II, JFK & MLK. I was fairly stunned – although I should know by now that the lengths we’ll go to promote this brutal sport are pretty outrageous. I enjoyed a lot of the commercials (LOVE the Detroit one), but others just made me go, “huh?” So really, a normal night of TV viewing. Except that the commercials on the History Channel are getting OLD. I do not want Magic Jack, I do not want it History Channel!
So I drove to work in the snow today. It wasn’t too bad, and apparently it’s supposed be clear (and extra cold) for the rest of the week. Of course, I at long last went through the car wash yesterday. Just couldn’t take it anymore. And, really, if I wait until the weather is clear then it might not happen until spring (probably not the best idea to wash the car when it’s clear, but the high is 20).
This is as much miscellany as I can manage today – I really do have other things to do besides blog. Really!
Have a great day!
