I like my superheroes flawed. Who wants perfection? I love the snarkiness of Tony Stark, the angst of Bruce Banner, the guilt in Bruce Wayne, the anger of Ben Grimm. Lately the movie versions of these characters have lived up to my expectations. I have read comics it seems all of my life. I think we all know I love the superhero genre. These characters are not just for children, as a matter of fact, most of these movies are really for the adults who grew up with them. I guess you can surmise that I just saw another one of these movies since it is in the forefront of my mind. Yes I saw Iron Man II yesterday and it totally rocked. I loved the ending, and I mean the very ending, after all of the credits. I can hardly wait for the Avengers movie, directed by the great Joss Whedon I might add.
So I read an article yesterday that said women should be consuming 120 grams of protein a day. I don’t even know how to do that! I would have to consume so many calories! I can do the 500 calorie, 50 grams of protein a day thing, I guess if I did 1000 calories a day I could do 100 grams of protein a day. I am going to try it. I am trying to think of high protein foods, I know salmon, cottage cheese is another, and eggs are a good source. Well I will figure it out and of course you know I will tell you of my findings.
For the record, just because I am from Oklahoma and a weather watcher does not make me a redneck (not that there is anything wrong with that), nor does it make me crazy. If you are wondering it was someone on facebook that equated weather watching and being from Oklahoma to being a redneck. Seriously when will the ignorance stop? I am so beyond tired of people putting down Oklahomans. Let’s take a look at some Oklahomans shall we? Will Rogers ring a bell with anyone? Let me remind you; He was born near Oologah, Oklahoma, he was part Cherokee, his parents were prominent citizens in Oklahoma, his father Clement Rogers served as a delegate to the Oklahoma Constitutional Convention. Rogers County, Oklahoma is named in honor of Clement Rogers.
Our history is filled with greatness, sadness, tragedy, embarrassment and all of the stuff American stories are made of. I have said it here before; I will say it again, I am immensely proud to call myself a daughter of Oklahoma.

  1. Ignorance stop? Angie, the ignorance of the masses has not stopped in all of human history. To think that it would change would be the Definition of Stupiditiy (i.e. do the same thing, expect a different result). Best we can do is just ignore it when we can, deal with it when we have to.
