Renee Zellweger is Making Me Sad

Renee Zellweger

Renee Zellweger – an earlier appearance.

Renee Zellweger is not hot.  Sofia Vargara is hot.  Megan Fox is hot. Jessica Alba is hot. Renee Zellweger is not. And that’s why Renee Zellweger is making me sad.

You loved the movie Jerry McGuire, right? Everyone loved that movie.  Sports, relationships, the movie had it all.  Tom Cruise was great in the movie. Cuba Gooding Jr. was great in the movie. Jonathan Lipnicki (the kid) was great in the movie. But it was Renee Zellweger as Dorothy Boyd who was awesome in that movie.  I question any guy who didn’t love Dorothy by the end of that movie.  Seriously, you should not let such a guy date your sister, daughter, friend, etc.  Zellweger was not hot in the movie though she was definitely cute. It was the character of Dorothy Boyd that was great.

Hanging in the Hut

Inside of our sukka Generally, we humans like to think of ourselves as masters of our fate.  Things happen or not because of our efforts or lack thereof.

I make a lot of money because I studied hard and learned a valuable task. A leads B and B leads to C. It’s all nice and neat and comforting. Work hard and I can get what I want.

But really, is the world that orderly? Does the hardest working or strongest or smartest always get the prize? There are many people who work hard at a job that is less valued in our society therefore earn a lesser salary.  There are many strong people who never quite seem to find the right situation and flutter from job to job looking for that elusive break. And there are many smart people who are unable to find work that satisfies them, and they end up pontificating without an audience.

Survival of the fittest is not fool proof. At all.

Thanks to Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, who sponsored the campaign, for including dads in this important discussion about family health care.  My views are based solely on my experience as a parent, and not as a medical professional.

When I turned 10, I turned green. I didn’t plant a tree. I didn’t stop using electricity.  I didn’t participate in a protest over pollution. I mean green in terms of food. Yes, the summer I turned 10, I discovered healthy eating.

My parents shipped my brother, NG and I off to overnight camp. It was our second year at Camp Council, so we knew the drill. We would be separated by age into bunks with each bunk having around 12 kids. The daily activities would include swimming, arts and crafts, and SPORTS.

Now, when you’re a 10-year old sports fanatic and have no school, other kids around, and ample sports equipment, life is good. I was content to be left on whatever field of play we were on all day.

But, all that running around makes a boy hungry.  I needed to eat.

And that’s where the problem began
