So I was listening to a song today that made no sense to me at all. It was the pop version of "If I Were a Rich Man" except it's girls singing, so they say girl instead. Anyway, one of the lines is "If I were a rich girl, I'd have all the money in the world." Now, does that make any sense? Don't get me wrong, the song is very very catchy (the real and pop version), but you most definitely wouldn't have all the money in the world if you were rich. Not even close. Maybe if you were the only person on earth, but then what would you need money for? Anyway, after I heard that I pondered on it for awhile (because obviously I have nothing better to ponder about...sigh) and could make no sense of it.

I was also thinking today about people's looks. I noticed that really cute people tend to marry other really cute people. Okay, I only noticed this on two people that I know, I've never even really thought about this with anyone else. Anyway, I was wondering why this was. I don't know if it was on a movie or in a book but someone somewhere made the comment about wouldn't it be nice if what we were like on the inside is how we looked on the outside. Which, hey, I think that would be pretty cool. But then I got thinking...boy, how would I look? I mean, I hope I would be nice looking (okay, I hope I would be drop dead gorgeous), but really there are some days that I'm pretty beastly to Dan. I blame it on all sorts of things, hormones, the kids, being a girl, hormones, being tired, hormones, being hungry, hormones (you get the picture) but it's just me. I try to be nice to others and have good happy thoughts towards my fellow men, but sometimes it just doesn't happen. So maybe, it's a good that God didn't make us to look like our insides. That way people can change and be better and not be stuck looking like a mean person. Some days people could even fake it (which I think is better than showing the beast, but that's my personal opinion. Most times if I'm faking it I eventually get to that point where it isn't fake anymore...not always, but sometimes). Anyway, this thought has inspired me to be a better "cuter" person.

Have you ever notice too that people tend to marry people that look like them? They usually have similar facial features and such.

Your thoughts sound like mine when I am doing the dishes...were you by chance doing the dishes.

Hormones are evil, although they do come in handy as an excuse at times.

That reminds me of that book about Dorian Gray. You know the one? He's not good or something, and it changes how he looks. Ah, here's info from Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Picture_of_Dorian_Gray

Not sure that I've read it, but maybe I will. I'm pretty sure dad told us about it.

Likes attract. . . or is it likes repel, I can't remember.

Well Tarah, I think you're a really good "cute" person, both inside and out.
And I think everyone snaps at their loved ones once in awhile. If they say they don't, I think they're lying. :)
