SPARKS Rule - August 30, 2008

Today Tinky Winky became a Sparks Fan!
TW got very excited, but I think was mostly about the team colors.
Tinky Winky immediately bounded with “Sparky” the team mascot because he was
willing to give him the shirt off his back.
Although the megaphone was fun… .. . . . . . . . . . . TW found a better use for it. The diversity of the audience gave TW a warm fuzzy feeling…or maybe it was the monkey hair.
I wasn’t too sure why someone would bring TWO rubber chickens to a basketball game but TW said it was so one wouldn’t get lonely sitting home all alone.
Why did the rubber chicken cross the road?
To get to the Sparks game.

Religious Hair Explained - August 15, 2008

We were watching the Ellen DeGeneres show and she was talking to Southern Cook, Paula Deen. I finally got a good definition for the “religious hair” comment I overheard in NC. (See blog entry Big Hair – February 07, 2008.)
Ellen: “The South is known for hair, the bigger the better.” (And she pulls out an old picture they found of Paula).
Paula: “Back in the 60’s we had wiglets…you pined it in your hair and you could get it to stand up this high (extends her arm above her head). The closer to Jesus the better we like it.”

Holy Union - August 8, 2008

Tonight we photographed a Holy Union for some friends.
I caught Tinky Winky playing in the floral arch before the guests arrived.
A Holy Union is a commitment ceremony (like a wedding) usually between same sex couples who are denied the right to legal marriage. Although California currently allows legal same-sex marriages, there are many places which do not. Same-sex marriages are legal in Belgium, Canada, Norway, South Africa, Spain and Massachusetts. TW doesn’t understand why some people reject love that is different, yet similar to their own. But then Teletubbyland doesn’t divide its’ inhabitants into male and female. Where Tinky Winky comes from, they have everything they need and love each other very much, which is why they are always ready to share a Big Hug! TW sends Hugs and Kisses to Caron and Kathy.
