Molasses Diaries

I'm the Mama, the partner, the boss. I love Doctor Who, , Sherlock, Supernatural, Star Trek, Buffy, Orphan Black, etc. And someday I'll blog about food, autism and David Tennant's lower lip. And I love you.

In Art History 101, we learned that the Venus of Willendorf could possibly have been a self-portrait, and because there weren’t mirrors at the time, the woman would have had to look down at herself for reference, explaining the warped proportions. Of course, no one knows for sure, but I liked the idea of it, so I decided to do a quick self-portrait using the same method of reference.

at what point do american children realise it’s weird for them to pledge allegiance to their flag and country every day at school and that not all countries do that and how long after that discovery do they realise how creepy it is

why is…

So the thing actually exists? wow

Every morning, 8:00am, right hand over the heart and facing the flag.  I think we stopped doing it in high school, but all throughout elementary and junior high we did this.  In fact, at my junior high we had our class representative say it over the loud system every morning so we kind of had no choice but to hear it, even if we didn’t participate (during 8th grade, my teacher ignored it and taught through it).  I had no idea what I was really saying until about 5th or 6th grade.  

Quick history fact, “under God” was not added to the pledge until 1954.  It was written in 1892 and formally adopted as the pledge in 1942.

I actively stopped pledging allegiance in 1993 during the Gulf War and I was the black sheep of my graduating class. My Sociology teacher used to call me “Hippievegetarianfeministliberal” instead of my name. McCarthyism was alive and well in suburban NJ in the nineties.

This Day in Disney History
October 5, 2014:  Maelstrom in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot will close permanently at the end of the day today.
"You are not the first to pass this way…" but today you might be the last!  Amid uproar from fans, Maelstrom will make way for an upcoming Frozen-themed attraction.  There has been speculation and rumors about this for several months, but today, our worst fears are coming true.
I am wholeheartedly against the infiltration of Frozen throughout Disney property, especially here in Norway.  So much for calling it the World Showcase!  With a fictional land set to take the place of Norway, it’ll have to be “A Bunch of Countries and Frozen” now.
Now, I can agree that Norway could have used an update. Just not like this. I know I’ve rambled about this topic before, so I’ll cut myself short, and hopefully I won’t have to bring it up again (at least until the Frozen ride opens…), so for now, I’ll just say goodbye to another little piece of my childhood.
Farewell, Maelstrom! It’s been a great run, you will be sorely missed!
