As If The World Wasn't Crazy Enough...


I know. I'm totally on a blogging roll right now, but I needed to post this.

I found this article from this website from that crazy forum freejinger.org. I normally go there if I need a good laugh about something.

Anyway...I thought this article was worth posting.

How To Be a Good Christian Wife

A couple years ago I was bombarded with emails asking me how to please both Jesus and your Husband. I came up with a list for these ladies and it seemed to help.

I've re-written the list and I hope it helps as many women reading this as it has helped in the past.

1. Always be up before your Husband in the morning so you can have his paper and his breakfast ready for him when he wakes. Although it is the morning, there is no need to be slovenly, always make sure you are showered and dressed with your hair fixed and your make-up on. ALWAYS serve fresh orange juice. Only whores use frozen.

2. DO NOT sit down at breakfast. Your Husband will be trying to read the morning paper and the sound of your chair scraping on the floor will be a distraction to him as you get up and down to fetch him more biscuits or find his briefcase for him.

3. DO NOT be a clingy wife! Your Husband has a lot on his mind in the morning, planning out his busy day. Do not try to engage him in conversation about what your plans for the day are or other trivial matters. Always walk him to the door. Make sure to carry with you any of the things he has forgetton so he doesn't need to go back for them. Offer yourself for a kiss, but if he is too busy to notice DO NOT POUT. He has a lot of responsibility and the morning is not the time for feminine hysterics.

4. DO NOT CALL YOUR HUSBAND AT WORK. Nothing will distract him from his responsibilities at work faster than trying to deal with yours as well. It can wait. In the case of an actual emergency, of course, calling him at work is necessary. PMS induced crying jags are not emergencies.

5. Spend your day cooking and cleaning. There is no excuse for anything other than a spotless house. Filth is for pigs not humans and cleaning top to bottom everyday is a good use of your time as well as good exercise. Bake lots of cookies and cakes and treats. ALWAYS REMEMBER a fat Husband is a faithful Husband.

6. When your Husband gets home from work, do not jump him with problems you've had during the day, or questions about his day. He needs time to relax and wind down. Make sure the TV remote is next to his chair and the batteries are fresh. Once he walks in the door, ladies...turn OFF the soaps and talk shows.

7. Have a snack ready for him to eat as you finish dinner. If he is not happy with your choice of snack DO NOT POUT, it's your fault. He's had a busy day and he's not psychic. Replace the snack immediately with what he wants.

8. Dinner should be more formal than breakfast. At this meal you may be seated, and allow him to serve himself from the table. Of course if he wants hotter gravy or something from the kitchen, you need to be up and gone for it with a smile. DO NOT PIG OUT. Always leave the table a little bit hungry to maintain both your figure and your dignity.

9. After dinner you may begin clearing the table as he waits for you to bring his dessert. He will be in a state of relaxation by this point and feel contented. If he aims a playful swipe at your backside during the clearing, respond with an "oh you!", smile and continue to the kitchen to get his dessert.

10. When choosing a dessert, remember a fat man is a faithful man and a full man falls asleep fast. Use lots of rich icings and creamy fillings.

11. Do not complain or question if your Husband has plans for after dinner. He has the right to a private life. Never call to check up on him. Use your free time to bake more, or to do his laundry.

12. Always go to bed before your Husband. He deserves a quiet time to reflect on his day and to plan for tomorrow. If he wakes you for sex when he comes to bed, give in graciously.

13. Never initiate sex yourself. Only whores initiate sex.

So ladies, print this out and keep it somewhere where you can see it daily. Not only will your Husband be much happier but so will you.

And of course, you will be pleasing Jesus and isn't that what it's all about?

Now it's my turn.

This is the biggest load of CROCK I have ever read before in my life!!! Please, I am hoping it was just a satire. He groups all men as if they're all the same person.

Well, I hate to break it to you...BUT MEN ARE NOT ALL THE SAME! Each man is DIFFERENT and his his OWN tastes and preferences! 

The only good thing coming from this is that I know that not all men are like what you have just listed above!
  
Whatever good points he was trying to make, he completely debauched with his disgusting and ridiculous reasoning.

That's not being a good Christian wife. It's being a damn house slave. I'll stay in my father's house till the day I die, then ever conceive the thought of submitting myself to that lifestyle. I mean, if it even exists. 

Oh...BTW

And if whores make frozen orange juice, than you should know that only the gayest men write out lists in bright princess purple.

I'm done.

Little Princesses...Then and Now

Some might think I'm crazy...but...

I really think that Brad and Angelina's pretty youngest daughter, Vivienne Marcheline, bares a similar resemblance to Grand Duchess Anastasia in 1904.

Modesty, Romance and Everything in Between

"The Birth of Venus" by Alexandre Cabanel

Webster's Definitions

Modest: Properly restrained by a sense of propriety; not bold or forward.

Modesty: Chasity or purity of manners.

When you hear the word modesty what's the first thing that jumps to your mind?

What you wear and how it affects other people. Well, that's partly true, but actually the term modest is actually describing ones attitude and actions.

Now, I like to think that I'm modest in what I wear. I wear jeans, camisole tops, halter tops, and whatever I find pretty and comfortable. My mom has normally been strict in what I do or do not wear and there are times when I've crossed the boundary line, but more often than not, I dress pretty well.

In this time we live in a era that is obsessed with the constant battle between modest vs. immodest clothing. The Christian community has its heart in the right place when it encourages girls to dress appropriately, but there are times that I think they go to far and make a bigger issue out of it than it really needs to be.

I might be pretty safe in saying that if you are a young girl raised in a Christian family with at least one brother, than you have probably heard the saying "Men are very visual and we can't tempt them by what we wear."

That's all well and true and I totally agree with it, but the Christian society has too often rammed this belief down girl's throats and give no thought to what they might feel .

It's almost as if they believe that girls are completely inept to conceive the thought that they might find boys attractive.

Don't we also have eyes that can see?

Don't we also have minds that can think?

And honestly if it's such a big deal, I think society can tell the male race to exercise a little self control and not have everything be at the expense of the women. This is America, not the Middle East. I'm not going to hold myself accountable for every thought that comes into a guy's mind when he sees me. I'm not forcing him to look at me and I'm not forcing him to act as God created him to be.

Women have been made to long for men since the creation of Eve. I've been boy crazy since I was nine years old! I have four sisters who are just the same as me.


Now, I totally and 100% find this utterly attractive and worth looking at maybe once or twice. Or just save it on the computer to look at whenever you want. I mean, in my mind there's just something about a guy with a sword, a shield, dressed in Middle Ages period clothing that gets me going. God created me to be like that and I'm thankful everyday that he did.

The point is girls are just as visual as boys are, we just don't make it as public. 

Another thing is, girls can find a man attractive really no matter how he's dressed or not dressed (spare yourself the mental image in the latter words.) It really doesn't matter to me, I'm not so single-minded that I only prefer a man to look one certain way.

And to be honest, guys are not so single minded either. My brothers are almost bigger fashionistas then me when it comes to women's clothing.


The Christian society has also linked this belief in saying that girls are emotional and that they fall into temptation because of romantic thoughts and ideas. Once again also true, but the same society seems to believe that all girls are romantic.

Well, I'll have to break it to you, I am not a romantic person. I don't care about flowers, chocolates, soft music, or even dates. My idea of a romantic date is taking a walk down our country road, talking and getting to know one another.

I've also believed that chocolates, flowers, and dates when two people are in a relationship prior to marriage (courtship, but I loathe that term) sometimes seems like leading a lamb to the slaughter.

Scenario: Nice guy woos a girls with candy and flowers and causes to her heart to go all a flutter (thank you Princess Kate for that wonderful image that is in my mind) and makes her think that he's wonderful. 

Once that ring is on her finger though the romance stops and everything that caused her to think he was great was nothing more than a lie.

Sometimes it's true and sometimes it's not. I don't believe in it, because I don't want the guy to think that he is obligated to do so to win my affection. Also if he does do it, I know that it's genuine, because it wasn't a requirement of mine, but truly done from his heart.

Another thing I find so wonderfully attractive about a man is a man who loves children. In this day in age people think that men who spend time with children must be some kind of pedophile or child molester. That is completely, totally, and diabolically ridiculous.

A man who cares for children and understands them is incredible and rare thing.  I guess because I love children, I wan to find someone who loves them just as much as I do.


Modesty at its core is about how we act, not necessarily how we dress. It's how we present ourselves to other people. Now, I'm not saying we can wear whatever we want, but a good attitude and a right spirit is just as important.

One persons view on modesty isn't going to be the same as another persons. I respect that and I'm not going to judge another person based on their outward appearance.

Girls live in a time where femininity has been looked down upon and in some cases horribly brutalized. It's no longer acceptable to be generous, kind, and loving towards everyone.

Romance can be misleading and a disillusionment. Like a teen girl's obsession with Edward Cullen or Mr. Darcy, both literary characters, both don't exist and yet in the hearts and minds of girls there the next best thing to reality. A hard hit to guys, because now they feel that they can't measure up to something that's a fantasy.

The media tells Girls to dress this way, act that way, be independent, do what you want, follow your heart, etc. Now, girls are smart, they are strong, and more often than not, they are able to think for themselves and in other cases many girls are not able to.

Girls raised in Christian families have been given the wonderful opportunity to be witnesses to girls that are not so fortunate. And that's not by looking down on them by the way they dress or by how they choose to live their lives, but by simply employing the gifts that God has enabled them with and use them for some purpose in this world.

Downton Abbey Confession #1

Forget Edward Cullen and his winy, pathetic, annoying, and unrealistic ways.

 

I'll take Matthew Crawley instead : )

Kind, loyal, strong, generous....and so very real!  

(...although, he does remind me a lot of Carlisle Cullen.)

Elizabeth: The Golden Age

Cate Blanchett as Queen Elizabeth I
There is a never-ending speculation and wonder behind the life of England's most famous monarch, Queen Elizabeth I. Shrouded in mystery and intrigue, she is a portion of history that changed the world forever. 

Her reign made England the world power for centuries. Her curiosity in the new world across the ocean led to the colonization of America (and being born and raised in Virgina, I'm proud to say that).

Q. Elizabeth I is has many well known qualities for which the world has remembered her by. From her red hair and stone white face, to her refusal to marry and remain a virgin. Her elaborate gowns and love of theater, and her unwavering trust in the sovereignty of God. 

All of these add up to an incredible woman that by her death was still a woman, but one, who during her reign, the world learned not to mess with. Men, woman, kings, queens, princes, and popes.

~ ~ ~

Jordi Molla as King Philip II of Spain
In my review of the preceding movie Elizabeth I had been somewhat disappointed by the inaccuracy and the all around general dark depressing gloominess of the film. So one can assume that I put in the sequel with caution. 

The movie starts several years later, where the first one left off. Elizabeth is in the highlight of her reign. She's happy, lively, and full of ideas to improve England. 

Elizabeth has two major adversaries that she has to deal with.

The first is her former brother-in-law, King Philip II of Spain who is telling his young daughter, Princess Isabella,  the evils of the 'bastard queen of England.' Little Izzy doesn't seem to care and prefers cuddling her doll that looks quite a lot like that hated queen.

The second is the hardened criminal, Mary Stuart or Mary, Queen of Scots who is doing time under house arrest. Her crimes? Being in line to the throne of England and being a Catholic. Both, in the minds of the English people are grounds for death.

Not to Elizabeth though. She states very clearly that she punishes people for their deeds, not for their religion. In spite of what she is trying to bring together, there is still tension between the Catholics and Protestants.

~ ~ ~

Clive Owen as Sir Walter Raleigh
Now, what's a royal movie without a love story?

Another note of inaccuracy is the lack of Elizabeth's dear Robert Dudley, who in the first film was a convict of a heinous crime and therefore Elizabeth banished him from her sight.

Completely and totally wrong. Elizabeth and Robert were close friends till Robert's death.

So, with Robby out of the portrait, Hollywood had to dig up some other dead historical figure and they used Sir Walter Raleigh, played wonderfully by Clive Owen. Elizabeth is intrigued by the dashing rogue, Raleigh and envies him and his stories of the new world colony of Virginia, which he named after her.

Abby Cornish as Elizabeth "Bess" Throckmorton
Yet, there ends up being another lady vying for Raleigh's wandering heart. Elizabeth's devoted and favorite lady-in-waiting Elizabeth (Bess) Throckmorton.

One might immediately think pretty little Bess to be conniving and envious of the Queen when it comes to loving the same man, but she's not. She is kind, generous, and loyal to the end. There is accuracy of Walter and Bess' relationship. 

Walter truly did love her. Bess becomes pregnant with his child and they secretly marry...without the Queen's permission. When Elizabeth finds out, she furious and sends Raleigh to the tower and dismisses Bess.

More on that later.

Samantha Morton as Mary, Queen of Scots
 In the midst of this wild love triangle, Elizabeth is still in a struggling battle over what to do with her imprisoned cousin, Mary Stuart. Her counselors simply want to kill her and get it done with, but Elizabeth (in her feminine mind) will not end someones life unless a crime has been committed.

So when a failed assassination attempt on Elizabeth's own life sends all of England into an uproar, immediately the guilty finger is pointed at Mary who claims to be innocent. Elizabeth believes her to be innocent as well, but her counselors do not. Eventually Elizabeth signs Mary's death warrant in only to protect 'her England' from another crime. 

As soon as Mary is proclaimed dead, Elizabeth falls into complete guilt and begs for God's forgiveness. 

God might be forgiving, but Philip of Spain is not and sees Mary's innocent death as a catalyst to wage war on England. So begins an incredible and epic sea battle between England and Spain. Anyone who knows their history knows that Sir Francis Drake led England's fleet to victory (although his role in the movie is seriously downplayed) and ushered England into its golden age as the leading world power. 

Spain finally defeated and England at peace, Elizabeth is now free to simply be queen. The end of the movie sees Elizabeth at the Raleigh's home after Bess has given birth to their son. Although inaccurate (Elizabeth didn't know of the secret marriage until the baby was born), it was a very moving and beautiful ending. 

~ ~ ~

Elizabeth: Woman, Warrior, Queen
 The one aspect that surprised me the most was the lighting. Whether this was done on purpose or not, I don't know, but the constant attention to the beauty of natural sunlight and warmth is spread throughout the film. Which is a complete tearaway from the first movie where everything was dark and cold.

In my opinion, I found The Golden Age to be beautifully done and much more positive than it's predecessor film. In spite of its inaccuracies (find them here under Dramatic License) it is a very good watch. The beauty of the cinematography and once again, the stunning costumes, sets, and designs are awe inspiring.

"My loving people, we have been persuaded by some that are careful of our safety, to take heed how we commit ourself to armed multitudes for fear of treachery; but I assure you, I do not desire to live to distrust my faithful and loving people ... I know I have the body but of a weak and feeble woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a King of England too, and think foul scorn that Parma or Spain, or any Prince of Europe should dare to invade the borders of my realm."
 ~ Queen Elizabeth I

Elizabeth

Cate Blanchett as Queen Elizabeth I in Elizabeth
I don't know if I have ever mentioned it, but I love to study royalty. And not just British royalty, but royals all around the world. They absolutely fascinate me. They are incredible representations of hundreds and thousanda years of history. So needless to say I try to watch as many movies of royals as I can possibly get my hands on.

Now I had heard of the 1998 motion picture simply entitled "Elizabeth" for a long time. I never saw it though because of its R rating, but now that I'm twenty-one that doesn't really bother me anymore. So I picked it up (as well as the sequel, "Elizabeth: The Golden Age") and watched it last night. 

It was very different from what I had been expecting. 

~ ~ ~

The movie begins in England 1554. King Henry VIII is dead and England is divided between the Catholic and Protestant religions. The movie begins with the burning of the three Protestant heretics. A rather morbid and disgusting beginning, but probably very accurate as well.

Henry's oldest daughter Mary, a devout Catholic who was famously known as Bloody Mary for her butchering of English Protestants, is queen and is married to King Philip of Spain. Mary is powerful and supposedly pregnant, but is threatened by one person.

Her younger half-sister, Lady Elizabeth, a Protestant like her infamous mother Anne Boleyn. Half crazed at the idea that Elizabeth is conspiring against her with other Protestants, Mary wants her arrested and questioned and eventually killed.


We first meet Elizabeth as a lively and beautiful young woman who is dancing with the dashing and handsome Robert Dudley at her country home, Hatfield House (very romantic). Suddenly Queen Mary's guards arrive at Elizabeth's house and demand that she come with them. Before she leaves, Robert tells her "Remember who you are."

Elizabeth and her two ladies in waiting, Kat Ashley and Isabel Knollys (whose actual name was Lettice) are taken to the tower of London where Elizabeth is interrogated and questioned by Mary's counselors to the point where she is driven to insanity. 

She proves her innocence over and over until finally the counselors admit to Mary that she might be innocent. Mary summons Elizabeth and confronts her, labeling her a heretic and humiliating her about her mother. Soon Elizabeth's kindness wins her sister over and Mary tells her that she will set her free if she will continue the Catholic faith when she becomes queen.

Elizabeth replies, "I will do as my conscience dictates." 

She is sent back to Hatfield House and put under house arrest. While there she is comforted by Robert Dudley who believes with all his conviction that she will become queen. Although she is charmed by the idea, Elizabeth lives in fear that everyday could be her last day.

Instead of giving birth to an heir that could end Elizabeth's life, Mary dies of a tumor, but before her death, she refuses to sign Elizabeth's death warrant. Giving her counselors a shock at the fact that she would leave England in the hands of a heretic.

My favorite scene is when Elizabeth is told she is queen.

Her ladies maids tell her that the Earl of Sussex has arrived. Elizabeth, in fear, takes Kat's hand and walks out the door.

A flash of light.

The Earl of Sussex presents Elizabeth with the royal signet ring.

A flash of light.

The Earl of Sussex repeats the words, "The Queen is dead! Long Live the Queen!"

Elizabeth replies in the simplest of words, "This is the Lord's doing and it is marvelous in our eyes."

~ ~ ~


The rest of the movie is a roller-coaster ride of politics, betrayal, sex, divided loyalties, friendship, enemies, hatred, love, and the constant theme of good over evil. Cate Blanchett did a remarkable job as Queen Elizabeth I. There was a wonderful vulnerability about her character. 

She was able to portray as Elizabeth as a frightened insecure young woman and eventually a confident and strong willed queen. The only problem was Cate Blanchett was far too beautiful. She was stunning in that long dark red hair and most historians say that Elizabeth wasn't much to look at in later years.

There are four men who dominate Elizabeth's life.

Robert Dudley, her lover and childhood friend, who is the only light in her life.

Sir Francis Walsingham, one of her counselors who will do whatever it takes to protect her.

Sir William Cecil, her chief adviser who keeps her in line with hundred year old rules and regulations.

Thomas Howard, Duke of Norfolk, her adversary who is after her throne.

All four of these men have a piece of her life in their hands and the whole movie revolves around her decision on who to trust and who to kill.

While watching it I began to doubt the accuracy of the film and surprisingly enough, my doubts were confirmed true. You can read the list of historical inaccuracies here

~ ~ ~
I found the movie to be rather entertaining, albeit the three raunchy sex scenes (I do have to admit the one with Elizabeth and Robert Dudley was beautifully shot) and also several grotesque scenes of torture. There was a dark and depressing quality to the film, but then Elizabeth's first few years on the throne were anything but happy and cheerful.

So, while it's not on my top list of favorite movies, the wonderful acting, beautiful costumes, and breathtaking landscapes are definitely worth watching.

"[At a time] when wars and seditions with grievous persecutions have vexed almost all kings and countries round about me, my reign hath been peacable, and my realm a receptacle to thy afflicted Church. The love of my people hath appeared firm, and the devices of my enemies frustrate."
~ Queen Elizabeth I

January News

 

That banner is so cute : ) Can you believe it's been 7 years since that movie came out??? Wow! I was like 15! I really hope they continue the Narnia series. Now that Harry Potter is done, people still need a fantasy to look forward to every year.

Well...The Hobbit, I believe is coming out this year and I can't wait to see that!!! Supposedly most of the original Lord of The Rings characters are going to making cameo appearances throughout the movie (more like movies since it's split in two films). That would be awesome. Last year was also the 10th anniversary of when LOTR premiered, so I would have been...11. Long long time ago.

I actually tried reading the Hobbit, but as great of a writer as Tolkien was...I really have a hard time understanding him. Maybe it's just because I'm a 'modern day reader' as I like to call myself or someone who doesn't necessarily like to read 'the classics.' I have never read Jane Austin, Louisa May Alcott, Charles Dickens, Tolkien, and whoever else old fashioned readers seem to admire.

I'm the type of reader one might call 'I never read the book, but I did see a Wishbone about it.' You know that old PBS show about the cute jack russell dog that narrated the show and gave a simple 30 min. version of all the great classics. I loved that show! Too bad it was cancelled, but I was able to get the general gist of classics like Robin Hood (that episode was a particular favorite), Pride and Prejudice, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Black Arrow, The Three Musketeers, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Odyssey, Great Expectations, several African and Mexican legends, and a lot more.

Ok, I'll admit...I am trying to get through Jane Eyre and it's good, but like I said, I have a rather short attention span when it comes to reading 'the classics'. From what I have read from Jane Eyre, I have come to the conclusion that I really admire Jane herself. She's real, not too good to be true or damsel in distress. She's been through pain and heartache, and she's kind and strong, but still maintains a very sweet and feminine essence. A very rare, but incredible combination to be found in a female literary character in that time period.

I have also seen a couple of Jane Eyre movies (there's like 20 adaptions of that story) and I think the best so far was from Masterpiece Theater's 2006 mini-series with Georgie Henley playing young Jane. It was very good and thrilling, never a dull moment. Also the 1970 movie with Susannah York and George C. Scott that is quite old (school), but still well done. Susannah York was so pretty too : )




By the way, I have become obsessed with Downton Abbey!!! I watched the two hour premiere with my mom on Sunday and I could not move! That is such a great show and I'm so in love with Matthew Crawley; so kind, strong and honorable...and he's not that hard to look at...Anyway, back to reality : )

The three Crawley sisters remind me a lot of the the Bennett sisters from Pride and Prejudice, they're fun, lively, and very generous. Sybil, the youngest, is my favorite. The adored princess, who is by no means spoiled or selfish.

I've had a harder time adjusting to Mary and Edith. I haven't seen all of the first season, but Mary's general wild attitude normally doesn't sit well with me, especially when it could come to bringing her family to ruin, and Edith just comes off as selfish and conniving. Now two years later in the second season in the midst of WWI, both have seemed to grow up and act respectably.

I can't wait till next Sunday!!!

(Mary PLEASE tell Matthew you love him!!!)

~ ~ ~
My life in general around the house has been pretty boring. I like to help with the soap business, but a lot of the work tends to get very monotonous. Although, I am working as a mother's helper for two moms and I have really enjoyed it. 

One is a stay-at-home mom who has five children and I work for her two times a month. The other is a teacher with two children who needs me there to watch her twelve year old daughter and eight year old son Mon. and Wed. afternoons until she or her husband get home from work. Both jobs I love and thankfully the children like me, which makes a lot easier.

I've made some good money from working too. Enough that I've been able to get a bank account and start building up a fund. So needless to say that has been great!!! So maybe this stay at home daughter idea hasn't been as bad as I thought.

I swore I would never go back into childcare after working at a daycare for two years, but I guess my life is in childcare. A mother's helper though has been much more rewarding. I'm glad that people actually appreciate what I do and not have to say it out of obligation. As a daycare teacher (I actually am a licensed teacher) there were so many strict rules that I was on pins and needles all the time and lived in fear that I would do or say something wrong.

I still tend to have that mentality. What if I don't this right? Should I have said that? I need to be doing a better job! It's hard, it really is; trying to relax and not worry all the time. It has gotten better and I'm beginning to liven up a bit more.

~ ~ ~

Before I sign off, I was wondering if anyone has ever heard or seen of this show? (I don't know why I word it with 'everyone' seeing as people don't come to this site) I really, really want to see it! Critics have called it 'Camelot for adults' and from the movie stills that I've seen, it's probably true.

All the more reason to see it : )

They have a pretty interesting cast.

Joseph Fiennes as Merlin

Jamie Campbell Bower (Sweeney Todd, Twilight: New Moon/Breaking Dawn) as King Arthur

Eva Green (Casino Royale; Kingdom of Heaven) as Morgan LeFay.

There's only one season (10 episodes),  the (supposed) reason being they couldn't do a second one because of scheduling conflicts with their three leads. Sad. People said it's really good.

Oh well, I see if I can find it from DVD store or something like that. Quite often I'll buy a DVD without even seeing it and normally I end up loving it. I mean, my God, it has Joseph Fiennes and Jamie Campbell Bower as well as a bevy load of handsome knights, who wouldn't want to watch it?? : )

I'll write back soon!!!
