Interesting morning

Today started out fairly normally. Though instead of getting right up at 9 am, I kept hitting the snooze button until 10. Then when I *did* get up, I got into that mood again... being too lazy to make my own breakfast. Usually when this happens, and I say I want to go out to eat, Alexander nags and nags me until I give up that idea and make my own breakfast. But today he was feeling just as lazy, so I/we walked all the way down to Hy-Vee to have breakfast.

Anyway, the interesting part of it is that I was watching CNN in the deli area and it said that more and more countries were banning super-thin models (models with a body fat percentage less than 18%) from being models in their country. It all started with Spain, and now the idea has caught on.

So I was watching this, and an old lady (maybe 75 or 80) got into a conversation with me about it. She was pleased, I think, to hear that I supported the ban on bone-thin models. But that wasn't the coolest part. We kept talking, and she revealed that she's an activist. Not only an activist, but a pro-choice activist!!!

What's even more awesome than THAT, if you can believe it, is that I was wearing my "rebel angel" T-Shirt (the one with an inverted pentacle on it) as well as the inverted pentacle necklace I got last weekend at the Ren Faire in Des Moines. (Dad and I went.)

Neat, huh?
