7 Quick Takes Friday


7 quick takes sm1 Your 7 Quick Takes Toolkit!

Woohoo, another Friday, more quick takes! Click the image above to read more quick takes.

  1. Nathanael posted a link to Kool Aid pickles recipe in the comments on my pickle post. While I refuse to drink Kool Aid or Flavor Aid or things like that, some of you might like the recipe. That said, I find it pretty funny that the post with pretty much the most on topic comments is about pickles. Faith healing comes a close second.
  2. I spent a good portion of the week chasing kids around the garden and the beach. I was pretty sad that the beach is getting paved. Why oh why?
  3. Someone mentioned that they couldn’t find the marks of a family blog on my blog. The reason is that it’s not a family blog. This is a blog about my interests and thoughts. Hence the Harel Skaat invasion. Like the video below. Totally unrelated to anything. But yes, the blog is a reflection of my brain rather than a family newsletter. I am not purposefully provocative–at least not more than the Christian mommy blogger who shares her ideas of the world. These are my ideas, my interests, my thoughts, my obsessions. And now, a little Harel Skaat:
  4. Olympics! YAY! I can’t wait to see the opening ceremonies tonight (though I’ll probably miss the beginning and fall asleep before they end) and then the fun watching starts tomorrow! There will be swimming and men’s gymnastics events I want to watch. Probably I’ll only get to catch bits and pieces… I’m rooting for three countries this year, again, and I do hope László Cseh finally gets to beat Michael Phelps!
  5. What is Romney doing in the UK? Besides insulting the British, that is.
  6. Seriously? Comparing a company that is functioning in a supposedly democratic country with OPEC? Please show me how denying rights in a democratic country is the same as doing it in Algeria, Angola, Ecuador, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Venezuela, or are you guys just equating your country with those? Of course you are. Really, homophobic bigots, that’s the best you can come up with?Yes, I’m finally massively pissed off.
  7. Shabbat Shalom.

  1. Do you make people angry? I don’t think I ever have. I’d hate it if I did. I think. Now, I’m just worried that people are going to be just basically disgusted. Our live isn’t very nice anymore.

      Yes, my existence makes people angry. I can’t help that, and I maintain the right to share my thoughts and feelings on controversial topics.

  2. God caught there between “life isn’t” and “lives arent”. Both work.

    Even some of us Americans are hoping that there’s new blood in the pool. Phelps was exciting in Beijing but I was happy to see Ryan Lochte get the gold.
