Midnight Blogging

Actually it's more like 1:30AM.

I can't fall asleep. When Justin and I went to bed tonight I wanted to keep talking and talking while he just wanted to sleep. Which he did. And left me to my restless thoughts. So I got up and here I am.

There have been a plethora of topics I have wanted to blog about but haven't gotten around to doing. These topics include:

1.) A rave review of Tampax's new tampons. Honestly, they are awesome. The best I've come across in my 10+ years of periods.

2.) Another rave review of the movie Miss Potter, starring Renee Zelwegger (sp?) and Ewan McGregor. The movie follows the life of Beatrix Potter who wrote the beloved Peter Rabbit series. It's a great film and it shows breathtaking shots of the Lake District in England, which is my favorite place in the entire world.

3.) And yet another review---but this time of a book I recently read called Girls Gone Mild by Wendy Shalit. I wouldn't give the book a rave review (Shalit's prose is far too bombastic and she relied too much on anecdotal evidence), but it was definitely thought-provoking. I especially liked her idea of the emergence of fourth-wave feminism. And I agree with her that women are encouraged to become sexual beings at younger and younger ages. A recent article in Newsweek about sexy Halloween costumes for little girls supported this notion...

4.) A post about why I won't vote for Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries. As much as I would like to see a woman as president, I don't want our country to be led by two families for 20+ years. And I do like Hillary as a candidate. I think she is polished, knowledgeable, and articulate. She holds her own very well in all of the debates I've watched. But I just happen to like John Edwards more.

5.) And lastly, a post about how no trick-or-treaters came to our apartment on Halloween. Justin was disappointed because this was our first Halloween as a married couple. But I was completely greedy and more than delighted that no one came. All of the delicious Snickers and Reese's Cups would be mine! All mine!

Maybe one day I will get around to blogging about these topics...


  1. Huge "DITTO" on the last two topics! I don't mind Hillary as a candidate but I think John Edwards would do a better job of shaking things up. Also, no trick-or-treaters either! But lots of Almond Joys and Kit Kats. Hooray!

    P.S. Are we going to Vegas soon? I hope so!

  3. I love how blogs are bringing friends together! Caroline, thank you for the rave review of Miss Potter. I've wanted to see it, but wondered if it was worth the loan money to get it. It's so sad that I have to think that way.

    for the record, even i liked miss potter. sure, you'll think beatrix is a bit of a loon but hey, she wrote stories about rabbits. 'nuff said.

    ~caroline's sleepy husband,

  5. I totally agree about John Edwards, but I'm not sure I even really like Hillary as a candidate. I think she seems a bit shady.
    We also got no trick or treaters.
    AND Miss Potter is a great movie.

    P.S. I hope you come to Vegas soon too.
