Lauren, Katherine, Lana too…

I watched the movie “Tommy” this weekend and was reminded what a classic beauty Ann Margret is. Looking at her made me think of woman today and I just can’t pinpoint what made the older movie stars seem so much more glamorous then today. It makes me think that the more natural look is “sexier” then all the plastic surgery of today. And also, I don’t think they had Photoshop in the 60’s so Marilyn really looked the way you saw her.

 I’m sure most would disagree with me but I think woman have lost that glamour of old Hollywood.

Parents…Shhhhh

I’m having déjà vu and not a good one. I was at my manfriend’s daughter’s soccer game yesterday and it all came back to me…how sports parents are annoying! My kids are older now and I thought I was finally done attending these games; not quite yet. They wouldn’t be too bad if I could just tape the mouths of some parents. I think if a parent is going to yell something it has to be positive like “good going Sally”, or “way to go Mikey”. I don’t want to hear “c’mon Bobby, get with it”, “Mary, don’t just stand there” or this is the most common one “what are you blind ref”. (And yes, all these names used are fictitious; you know this because they weren’t Madison, Jacob, Emma or Joshua).

There is a person at these games called “the coach” and it is their job to give your child the correct direction from the sidelines. It is the parent’s job to attend and support their child in a positive way; not to ridicule and embarrass them. I thought sports were supposed to be fun…what a concept!

So parents, in the words from a movie I loved as a kid called Tommy…”you know where to put the cork”. If you don’t know that movie what it means is “shut up”.
