I’m playing catch-up today after a weekend filled with carbohydrates and Harry Potter movie marathons. Instead of sitting at the computer, I should probably go run off that movie marathon with a real marathon.
It’s not too late for a Halloween photo, is it? No? Good. Presenting…a very intimidating Raphael from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and a fifteen-year-old-boy dressed as Carson, dressed as a member of Lightning McQueen’s pit crew!
We had a lousy showing of only four kids begging for candy on Halloween. Not even one ill mannered teenager, or grown women, without costumes. I mean, how the heck am I supposed to blog about Halloween if nobody shows up to offer fodder?!
This is…random….but I was sent a copy of the documentary, The Sound of Mumbai: A Musical. I’m a sucker for a good documentary, so when they asked if I wanted a copy, I said, “okay.” This documentary is currently airing on HBO2 and it’s about these kids from the slums of India that are going to perform songs from the Sound of Music at the fanciest performing arts center in Mumbai.
Documentaries this like and the radio show, This American Life, and the human interest articles in newspapers, and blogs…I LOVE those kind of things. Learning about other people, their stories, their lives…I especially enjoy seeing how despite completely different cultures and life circumstances, people are people no matter where you go. The little boy in the documentary, Ashish, his personality was like any ten-year-old boy you’d meet here in the US.
Sound of Mumbai was a good documentary, hopeful, sad, but realistic.
Disclaimer: yes, they sent me a copy of this documentary, but I wasn’t really under any obligation to blog about it. I wasn’t reimbursed in any way and these brief opinions are my own.
Nap Warden did an awesome job on my website, Family Friendly Knoxville. She took my ideas, some hand drawn, some poorly worded, and was able to create the look I was going for.
So if you’re looking for a blog designer or logo designer, you should look NW Designs up.
Another disclaimer! She didn’t ask me to say anything, although she did give me a great deal with the design AND web hosting. Nap Warden is just good at what she does and I wanted to tell you about her.
I’ve written quite a few posts over at my Babble blog, Southern by Proxy.
A waitress yelled at Carson in a restaurant which led me to ask, “Should you reprimand another person’s child?” Several of the comments have really made me think.
I wrote about who I am, as part of the Phenomenal Women project headed up by Alli Worthington.
Now that I’ve finished Friday Night Lights (WAH!), I’m wondering what I should watch next?
