Seriously, what?

So, I'm sitting here writing again because due to a storm, my satellite signal has been lost; therefore, I can not watch my shows. I swear, if our satellite even sees a cloud it goes out, thus irritating the hell out of me. Anyways, I'm sitting here watching my husband play a game on Xbox and I'm wondering what kind of people make some of these macabre excuses for entertainment; of course they don't make games like they did in the good old days, I guess those are too boring and mundane to fathom playing.

On to my next thought provoking thing to talk about. I'm on the couch pondering the abundance of ignorant people we have walking around disguising themselves as intelligent individuals.
Why you ask? Well, upon surfing the internet, I came across an article about a woman who was told not to breastfeed her child at an Applebee's in Lexington, Kentucky. Keep in mind, I was born and raised in Ky and that particular Applebee's is only about an hour from my current residence in Indiana. It never ceases to amaze me that people are so offended by certain actions of others, yet continue to look. This woman was in a corner booth, discreetly breastfeeding her 7 month old son when she was approached by a waitress who proceed to tell her that she needed to cover her son with a blanket. The woman responded by saying that she didn't have a blanket (who would, it's like 90 degrees outside) and the waitress insisted she still needed to cover up. The woman then asked to see a manager and he told her that customers were complaining it was indecent exposure. She reached in her bag, and handed him a copy of Kentucky's laws supporting breastfeeding where it clearly stated that a woman has every right to breastfeed in public and it can not be deemed offensive or indecent exposure. He persisted by saying people were complaining, and the woman left before being served her food. This incident has sparked an outrage and there was a nurse-in at all the Applebee's today in the United States. I myself do not breastfeed, but had that situation happened to me, I would have remained seated and continued to nurse my child. If someone is so offended, that is why God gave you neck muscles- simply turn your head.- it's not rocket science.

So, I'm done with my little tangent for the night, and am still sitting here watching my lovely hubby play a game that looks like something from the pre-historic and space-age era combined. Yeah, I know, it sounds impossible, but I kid you not. After lowering my I.Q. drastically by being subjected to a really weird and rather disturbing game, I think I'm going to turn in for the night.
