Ok, first of all, let me just say to all new bloggers out there... if you want to get feedback, don't waste your time posting about the sufferings of 3rd world countries, or your thoughts on the presidential race, or even your own dearest love story. If you want comments... talk about toys from the 70's. And show pictures... that really brings in the readers. :-)
I am glad you all love the Fisher Price stuff as much as we do. Of course, the Esquire firmly believes HE is the reason you all commented...
Moving on, people keep asking what I think about the whole Madonna-adoption thing. In a nutshell: I don't know Madonna, I don't know the details of her adoption process or what her intentions may or may not be, and so I refuse to judge her based on what US Magazine is saying. But I do feel sorry for everyone involved. If you really want to know how I feel then read this . And this also. I love both Melissa Fay Greene and Randy Cohen and so really appreciate their thoughts on the subject.
More ramblings... last night on NPR "Talk of the Nation" did a piece on international adoption. Here are two sentences that really struck me...
"Adoption isn't about philanthropy, it's about family."
On the subject of international adoption versus domestic: "Children in need of families are borderless."
And just so you don't think I've gone all deep on you... let me leave you with my latest hobby.
Crocheted owls. Pretty cute huh? I loved my terrarium class so much that I've gone back for more classes at Reform School. Seriously, if you live in LA you need to check out their Home Ec. class schedule. Next month they have a class teaching you how to make yarn out of old plastic grocery bags and then knit them into a tote bag. I know, right?! Last week I learned how to crochet these owls (I made the grey one in class and the other two at home with scrap yarn, it only takes about 2 hours so I'm just whipping them out.) and this week I am taking "Sewing 101." Stay tuned till next week when I show you my finished PILLOW! ooooh, ahhhh, wow!
