Another odorific morning on the CTA. On top of the bad hair morning that Lulu had. She got a new style yesterday that requires a flat iron and of course sleeping on it ruined it so she tried to fix it herself with some *really* sticky stuff and that did NOT work. I sorta fixed it but it was not what she wanted. The whole experience left us both crying.

Will be shopping for a flat iron at lunch.

Poor kid! young black girls have hair issues that white girls will never have to face (other than those few girls with naturally curly or frizzy hair).

I had a horrible dream last night that I was letting Rose and Mia outside like I used to let my previous cats outside on demand, and they disappeared and never came home, and I was out searching for them, knowing I'd probably never see them again. It's a stressful way to wake up.

I hope parents don't have dreams like that about their kids!

Not to be too Clintonian, but define "child".

A 8 year old, I absolutely agree with you.
A 14 year old, probably.
A 16 or 17 year old is not a child in my book.

Keep in mind that Juliet was around 14 when she and Romeo were messing around. Henry VIII's mon was 13 when he was born. Mary was thought to be in her early teens when she married Joe.

None of those example happened when we had mass communication, internet and billboard exposure, good nutrition with hormone enhanced meat and earlier puberty.

(For you non-Chicagoans, there was a big kerfluffle about a billboard across from Rock and Roll McDonalds in downtown Chicago. It was of a pretty woman with her mouth making an O and the text was The Best Job is a Bl*w Job. The billboard company was asked and did take it down. The advertiser is griping 1st amendment. Mickey D customers can now swallow in peace again.)

New computer came last night. I am setting it up slowly.
Windows 7 seems OK. I don't mind teh new start menu/programs list.

I got MS Office starter. The ads aren't too bad. Yet Most of the commands look familiar, but for the life of me I can't find how to open a document to just type. I haven't tried Excel yet.
IE9 does not have the Favorites link at the top near left which is where I reflexively go, so I reflexively downloaded Firefox. Ta Ta Microsoft

You think a 14-year-old PROBABLY shouldn't get a lap dance???

Oh, and Romeo and Juliet are fictional characters and Mary is thought to have been about 17 when she married Joseph. Where did you get early teens?

i've always heard -- including from theologians in documentaries,t hat she was 13, 14, 15 tops. A quick google search has these ages as well -- even as low as 12.

Dunno the source at this point, but somewhere connected with church. There was an Advent when the theme was unwed teenaged pregnancies.

I think she's speaking only on how she defines the word "child", not the appropriateness of a lap dance. Legally, you are considerd a child if you are under 18, but let's be real, a 16 year old is not the equivalent of a 10 year old. Under 18, you are allowed to see R-rated movies if acompanied by an adult. When determining if you're 16 year old can see an R-rated movie with you, do you apply the same filter that you would when determining if your 10 year old can come? Shades of gray.

I've always heard that. I have zero evidence to back that up, though.

Wow. While I still maintain that this is NOT the same as some old perv opening his raincoat to an 8 year old, it is way more lewd than I imagined.

Google Judy Viger and you will find photos of the incident.

One in particular has a the boy sitting in a chair.
The stripper, is upside down, belly to belly with the boy. Legs over his shoulders.His face in her crotch and vice versa. She is not nude, but only wearing a thong. and top. Way inappropriate.

That would be like heaven and hell at the same time. That ain't the kind of scene I want my friggin mom present for. Also said MOM got a lap dance.

I've heard she was about 12/13 ish, which was fairly common back in those days. Remember, the average lifespan was around 35. You kinda had to get started a little young.

For lack of a better way to say this, Lulu has "good" hair. She could have Beyonce hair if she wanted to, but that curl is always lurking in the background, waiting to take over.

When she woke up crying because of her hair, I remembered the opening scene from "Friday" where the show the sister trying to sleep with her head propped up on her hand, but it keeps falling off. I can totally see Lulu doing that.

Now Nunu is a totally different story. She's going to the same hairdresser next Thursday and this lady has been shown photos of the hair and she says she can get Nunu's straight too. We'll see...

Okay, maybe Mary was an early teen, maybe a late teen... it's still apples & oranges comparing her getting married at what was considered a normal age in her culture vs. getting a lap dance.
