Being one of those who could not care less about football, I didn’t even know the Super Bowl was being played last Sunday until two days before the game. I just knew that the Dallas Cowboys weren’t going to play in it, and I wasn’t having a party. Not that I’m a big fan of the Cowboys, I’m just a […]
It’s been a weekend of the Super Rich and the Super Bowl, brothers and sisters. Let us reflect on both. Goo Goo: Faceplace founder, Mark Zuckerberg and his lovely wife, Priscilla, have announced their new daughter’s Chinese name, in honor of Sister Priscilla’s family heritage. It is reported that her Chinese name will be Chen Mingyu. This is in addition […]
The other day I watched that old Streisand/Redford movie and remembered seeing it when it first came out. So I went tripping down Memory Lane, which is one of my favorite haunts. Back when I still thought Barbra was everything (and maybe I still do somewhere deep down), she asked if it was all so simple then. Well, Babs, it […]
Hearken Ye to the throne of prayer, dear readers, as I offer inspired thoughts on today’s issues. Barbie: The Barbie Doll, that paragon of perfection, poise and primness, has just had a makeover. I’m not sure how I feel about this. On the one hand, it’s a blessing that children who idolize Barbie can now know that striving to look […]
I’ve officially jumped on the ingredients-and-recipes-in-a-box bandwagon. At the prompting of friends (and a pretty swell “first week free” promo code), I decided to give Blue Apron a shot. The box arrived with great anticipation today. And even though I’m not going to be able to cook my first meal tonight, I did unpack the super cute box. Here’s how […]
Miss Craig McCartney, once again, correctly predicted the outcome of the 4th Republican Debate….sans Trump. Enjoy this Ms.Cleo-esk assessment of the state of the race and the debates!
My husband told me the other night that I’m a luddite. Karl was very pleased with himself because he first had to explain what he had just called me. That was more irritating than the label. Technically, I’m not a luddite, seeing as how I wasn’t around during the Industrial Revolution, but I am resistant to technological change. Neither my […]
Sports and Politics. One would think that I would stay out of both fields, but this week, the Lord has called me to a place of discomfort in my ministry as I tackle both issues. (See what I did there?) Let us consider… Palin: The Lord is raining blessings down on me and all those who profit from a ministry […]
Oops! They did it again. And we must boycott the Oscars. Clearly, homophobia is a problem within the 94% white, 76% male Academy (average age: 63). Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara get Oscar nominations for playing lesbians in “Carol” while Sarah Paulson gets snubbed for the same movie. Ms. Paulson is a lesbian, playing a lesbian, and we cannot have […]
Just a few weeks until the first votes of 2016 will be cast. After two debates, where candidates mixed it up and entertained us, Miss Craig McCartney has a few thoughts to get off his chest.
