Beauty is in the Eyes of the Beholder

Lizzie Velasquez was born with an extremely rare medical condition that keeps her body from storing fats. In addition to being severely underweight, she is also blind in one eye. She was cyberbullied but stood up for herself. You can too!

Are you beautiful? Believe you are and you are.

People who are hurting want to hurt others. Don’t do it because it won’t make you feel any better.

Lizzie Velasquez, who is blind in one eye and has a condition where her body doesn’t store fat, was cyberbullied. But she stood up to it and has wonderful ideas how you can too. She’s great at TEDxYouth@Austin Be free to be beautiful!

Reverend Loveshade and Ms. M.C.: Baby Two

All names in this entry are Discordian names.

Once again, it’s a baby! Ms. M.C. gave birth to Wunderkätzchen at 17:38 hours Thursday, 12 June 2014. Wunderkätzchen (Kitty for short) weighed in at 3,858 grams (8.5 lbs) and was 52.2 cm long (20.55 inches). Both Mommy and Baby are doing great.  Daddy, who worries too much, is recovering — but quicker than from the birth of their first daughter. Twinkleton is already wanting to help her younger sister.  They didn’t think they’d get the same midwife as for their first, but at the last minute Nurse Velvet Hands became available. Untroubled Teen V (remember, all these names are their Discordian names), Ms. MC’s 15-year-old sister, helped with the birth which was at their commune.

Congratulations to the family!

Welcome My New Niece Kimberly!

I’m so happy I have another niece! Her name is Kimberly and she weighs 7 lbs. 15 oz. and is 20 1/2 inches long.

She is the second niece I had on New Year’s Day. How can that be? Staci was born on January 1 2008 which is the American new year. And Kimberly was born January 31 2014 which is the Chinese new year. They’re both the daughters of my half brother Benny and half sister Brandy. I know that sounds weird but they aren’t related to each other. Benny is my Mommy’s son and Brandy is my Daddy’s daughter.

I thought they could give her a horse name because this is the year of the horse but they already decided. I feel if I have a baby I’ll wait until I see him or her before I decide on a name.

Anyway Kimberly and Brandy are doing great. Staci’s already trying to help she’s 6 years old now. Everybody grows up so fast! I can’t wait to see Kimberly I hope I don’t have to wait til spring break!

Reverend Loveshade & Ms. M.C. Baby 2

Can we say preggers?

Yes, Reverend Loveshade and Ms. M.C. are excitedly expecting their second bundle of joy!  Expected due date is 2014 June 15, but you know how babies are.  Really the whole commune is expecting the baby as they are one big extended family.

Their first daughter, Puffletoes Twinkleton, was born about the date in 2011.  (You might have guessed that’s the girl’s Discordian, not legal name).

As it happens, Lorien Loveshade is expecting a new niece any day now.
