Things That Leave Me Scratchin’ My Head {Coffee Talk}

Coffee Talk {Living Outside the Stacks}Y’all, where did the time go? Can you believe tomorrow is the first day of December? Seriously, doesn’t it feel like we just celebrated 2012? Really, how quickly did this year fly by?

1. Have you seen the commercial for the new reality show Amish Mafia? It’s a show about an Amish gang. I want to laugh. I want to watch. But I’m just a little bit afraid. Just in case they really exist.

2. But you know what did make this year feel incredibly slow? That presidential campaign. I know y’all are as tired of the crazy as I am but this is about to take things to a whole new level… At the Soul Train Awards, Jamie Fox declared President Obama to be his lord and savior. blank stare Let me tell you something, Jamie, President Obama is a man, a human being. He is not the lord and savior. There is one God and He tells us in Exodus 20:3 “You shall have no other gods before me.”

3. What was the oddest thing you found on the playground when you were a kid? For me, it was a hearing aid. My daughter lost hers on the playground and the whole school went outside to look for it, does that count? Anyway, some kids in Russia found a 5~month~old lion cub! And do you know those little people took that cub to their teacher, who kept it in the school gym until the police arrived to take the cub away?  While waiting for the police, the kids petted and named the cub. One child even tried to ride it like a pony. Fun~ny.  The cub is now living in a zoo.

4.  America is getting heavier. It’s been all over the news. And now store mannequins are finally starting to catch up and people are horrified. Apparently, people’s delicate sensibilities are harmed by seeing mannequins that look like real people. Personally, I find those Old Navy mannequins more disturbing than I do real sized ones. I have rolls, I wanna be able to approximate where the fabric is gonna settle. I say bring on the more realistic mannequins.

What had you scratchin’ your head this week?
