Some serious thoughts: My parents are getting divorced. This is NOT shocking news for me, as they have been seperated for about 4 years already. Sadly, it still sucks that I know they will not be getting back together (I had unrealistic hopes).
Dysfunctional families and "broken" homes are totally normal today - sad, but true. Its rare (even seen as abnormal) to find couples that even last 10+ years today. I actually feel a tinge of jealousy for people who have a solid, traditional family. The Boyfs parents are awesome and inspiring. They have been together for decades and seem to still be very much inlove (ahhhh...too sweet). I want that one day -- the kind of love that grows but never gets old.
Some people say its crazy to even believe in the institution of marriage anymore - I say "gggrrrr" to those people. While I realise divorce is sometimes the only way out of an ugly, unhappy marriage, I still think its crazy (and a bit sad) that people find divorce so "normal" and ok now.
In random, weird news: A Florida man vacationing at Lake Tahoe claims he caught a tiny, elf-like figure dubbed the "leprechaun-alien" on film as the creature was fleeing a forest....
Seriously, people - this is real news!! Its not just on the pages of the crazy mags and the weirdo, gossip blogs. The above comes from Fox News. Do you think it could be true? I highly doubt it. I liked this story though, it seems so silly and made me giggle for a good few minutes.
