We went to see the movie Thor. I'm reluctant to criticize anyone else's artistic endeavor but . . . hell, I'll just say it: the movie sucked. The boys liked it, but I visited the lobby four different times. The last time both of my female friends came with me.
In six days my recital will be over and I will know my raw score, my adjusted score (adjusted for highness and lowness of individual members of the judging panel), and my final grade in the course.
While I'm in a negative mood, I'll take a moment to once again rag on the Duggars. They're campaigning for politicians who don't want their support and they're campaigning for Tennessee's "Right to Life" initiative. They live in Arkansas; the laws that are or are not enacted in Tennessee are really none of their business. It's not unlike the LDS church financing most of California's Proposition 8 in 2008 from Utah.
I wouldn't say this except that I'm reasonably confident that the kid in question will never read this blog (for one thing, with the Duggars' particular brand of homeschooling, I'm not at all confident that any of those little boys will ever read, period) but the boy pictured in the above-posted photograph looks as though he's Satan's spawn and not terribly bright to boot. Pictures can be deceiving, and the child could be both a rocket scientist and the personification of the Christ Child, although considering who his parents are, I'd be very surprised.
