I need to work out

So last week, I climbed on a scale and it went higher than it has ever gone before.  That may have been the motivation most people need to realize they're sitting around getting fat.

Well yesterday the spawn told me, I need to wear a blue bra.

That is more then enough.  Tonight 24hourfitness it is!

So over on the magic website, I posted a reaction to komen, and 1/2 heartidly said komen is back on the list of chairites that I support.

As it is also time to do my taxes, I thought I would put a list together for everyone to use to guide their charitable donations.   :-D  Yes i know you don't care who i support but I find this list somewhat revealing.  I need to support more dude issues.

Women's Bean Project
Big city Mountaineers
Colorado Public Radio
Colorado College
Wounded Warrior Project
Alex's Lemonade Stand
MISS Foundation
The Delores Project
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

That is the list of organizations that received mostly token donation   The biggest recipient was our church which i will refrain from listing. I think having faith is a good thing. I don't think faith is better then yours, I mean other than it is mine ;-D.

And actually, I suppose the only women issues I donated to last year were the women's bean project and the delores project and komen, although dudes can get breast cancer.  It is mostly a women's issue. Other than, as a dude, I enjoy breasts, and secondly and far more importantly, as the mother of my daughter is in fact a not a dude. I would be lost without her.  I can not imagine having to face life without her, or the spawn facing life without her.  So that one is really a dudes need their mom, wifes, sisters, and friends issues.

The women's bean project and the Dolores project are women issues but they're in response to men being jerk offs, so those are men issues.

Colorado College has an environmental studies program, I donate to them on earth day.

This is my list, and it isn't meant to brag, I don't donate very much to each organization.  But this is the list of charities sanctioned by Me. 

Are you serious

As i have been home with the daughter all week, i've watched  alot of Calliou. So I gots to thinking, why is this four year old bald.

As I am not this first one to wonder this the publishers of this children's crap have an answer.

Caillou stands for all children. He doesn't have curly blond hair, a carrot-top, brown hair, glasses, or ethnic features, because he represents all children. We wanted to make Caillou universal so every child could identify with him. And they do! Caillou's baldness may make him different, but we hope it's helping children understand that being different isn't just okay, it's normal.

What a load of crap that is.  I mean dude is caucasian.  His parents are both white, have brown hair and american accents. his sister had red hair, his parents have brown hair.  This is crappy loaded crap served up with crap forn an explanation.

So this ethicsless child that is supposed to represent all children, belongs to a clearly white American family? But he is not white, or any other definition of ethicity, you would assign to it, as I know race and ethnicity are not the same, but i really don't understand this answer.

So Calliou is supposed to help kids that don't fit in within their own family?  That makes no sense.

Calliou has black friends, and deaf friends, and handicap friends, and autistic friends, but he is supposed to be indentityless.

Wouldn't it make more sense, to not make point that despite our ethnical differences we're still all people? Rather then trying to say that we shouldn't have ethnically based identification?  I mean people should be proud of who they are and who they came from, but only to the point that they think this is who i am and embrace it.

The people before me had made an imprint on my life, my dad, my grandparents, and it is likely either the presence or lack of presence of my grand parents grand parents had a direct impact on their lives. I can get back 4 generations at least, that has likely had a direct impact on my life.  I am proud of the people who came before me. 

This doesn't mean however that I think my people are better than your people.  Those people suck.

Calliou sucks ass, differences should be celebrated not mitigated.
