Since I have crafts in the title, I decided I would share some of the stuff I have made semi-recently.   I uploaded a bunch of pictures to my album, so if you are interested you can view them there.

It's mostly crocheted items that I made for my vet when she was pregnant.  She was having a girl and I may or may not have gotten a little carried away with making stuff for her (I think I did something like 75 items lol)

I also have included a few of my (rudimentary) sewing projects.   I dream of being a sewer someday, but much like drawing it do it sporadically, so never gain much proficiency ;)

      Her rational for armpit hair removal is that she teaches fitness classes in sleeveless tops.

      But that doesn't help anyone who has to see the dirty tangled mess bouncing around on her head.

      Wow, if she keeps up the pace, she should have another by the end of the year. Joe and Elissa’s kids are much more spaced out.

      I think the differences are many - Elizabeth & her husband seem to be unable to keep their hands off each other. They really like each other. They are in business together. 

      There is no comparison to Joseph & Elissa.

      Yeah, because completely normal, non-guilty people would automatically assume THAT was why their business was getting raided.  Josh really is a dumb ass.  

      Sometimes I wonder if Josh is unconsciously driven by the desire to get caught and punished because of some deeply ingrained need to go through exposure, confess, and thus be absolved of guilt.  (You know, repent and come back to Jesus.)  

      He is a terrible person, but also a pathetic one because he seems to throw away all his advantages to satisfy his inappropriate sexual desires.  Maybe it’s because he is stupid and entitled, but he does seem driven by compulsions he can’t control.

      Even if he doesn’t believe all the stuff his parents taught about God, even if he only pays lip service to the rhetoric of fundie repentance, I would guess that he has some sense of guilt and some fear of divine punishment deep down.  So maybe when the FBI shows up at his door, he babbles in a way that shows he is guilty because (at that moment) he thinks The Lord may be intervening.  Maybe (one hopes) he has been using CSA as a way to prevent himself from acting on his impulses and molesting children in his environment (one prays that is so).  Maybe he feels that makes it okay, that though he has violated the law, what he has done is not as bad as molesting a kid.

      I am just speculating, and none of this makes his crime(s) less, but perhaps on some level Josh is crying out for help.  He may be torn between wanting someone to catch and punish him and wanting to get away with it all.  Maybe the best thing that could happen to him would be prison and secular counseling—if only he can let go of his need to conceal and seem better than he is.

      Just thinking aloud here.  I am not excusing him in any way.

      I think it's largely very successful marketing from the diamond industry, really. I remember ages ago seeing commercials saying that "three months salary" was the most proper price to pay for an engagement ring. Diamonds, of course. 
       

      I’ve heard this too.  @Queen Of Hearts would have better info since she worked in the industry, but I’m pretty sure it was DeBeers or a similar company that began marketing diamond rings as engagement rings in the early 20th century because they wanted to sell more of them.  Spending two/three months’ salary was also a marketing campaign.  And it became a thing.

       
      I like sparkly jewelry as much as anyone else, but having been poor through my teens and twenties my personal priorities involve not spending money where I don’t need to.  Rhinestones are as shiny as a diamond, so I’m content to buy those instead.  This is also why I never got around to fixing my engagement ring even though I can afford to now; I’d rather direct my spending money elsewhere.

       

      oopsie on the quote box below; my phone got wonky and I can’t delete it.

      I love that movie. Its really good and really funny. And yes in real life they had two kids together bringing the total to 20 kids. 

      I read the memoir by one of the kids. He said the only truthful thing  in the movie is that a widower with 8 kids married a widow with 10. According to him, when visiting the family for research purposes ahead of filming, Lucille Ball was creeped out by the father and told the production folks, “Keep that SOB away from me.”
