My first real memory of Paul Simon. That and the “Call Me Al” video. Anyway, I’ve been stupid in love ever since.

Random fact: Dan Gilroy [Gordon] dated Madonna and was in the band The Breakfast Club with her [before she broke out on her own.]

Also I’ve been in love with nerdy neurotic sarcastic dudes thanks to Gordon, too.

We can all breathe a little prayer of thanks to George at Best Roof Talk Ever for finding a copy of The Christian Mother Goose Book of Nursery Rhymes and sharing this gem with us … If that makes you feel just a little dirty, perhaps you’d prefer the Christian version of Little Bo-Peep or Humpty Dumpty. They aren’t as sinister. Read more:…

This is totally irrelevant, but I’m just amazed by the amount of people, in light of the voting results of America’s Got Talent, saying that writing is not a talent. Personally, I’d love to see those people put together a poem that doesn’t read like a mother goose rhyme. Anyway, using this opportunity to tell every single one of my followers — writing is a talent, and you are talented, and you should be proud of that talent. That is all.


“Mother Goose as a Suffragette” (1912)

The New York State Woman Suffrage Party was a local branch of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, which formed as the result of a national convention of suffrage groups in 1890.

In addition to protesting and organizing, the Woman Suffrage Party also published literature including magazines and pamphlets to inform suffragettes on news of the movement and recruit people to the cause.

This booklet was aimed at young and old readers alike, laying out the case for suffrage in nursery rhymes that anyone could grasp.

Eight years after this was published, the 19th Amendment was ratified, securing the right to vote for women nationwide.

The Crooked Man III(set 2) by Alaina Harmon
Via Flickr:
There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile, He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile. He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse. And they all lived together in a little crooked house …………………..♥ღஐƸ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒஐღ♥……………………… From the Mother Goose rhyme. :)

A little cuddle time with this little dude before he went to bed.

He’s exhausted- we all woke up at 4am (since he was screaming) and he’s been jacked up all day.

Poor Romy took the brunt of it.

After he was ready to settle down he was super affectionate and wanted to hold my hand.

A few Mother Goose Club rhymes and off to bed he went.

…I’ve been up since 4am, survived another re-org, hit the gym (hard), and have a full belly so I’m not far behind the little man.
