StandOut Ads - Clorets Gum

Point made...

StandOut Ads - Hugging Letter?

Just weird...

I understand advertising is suppose to be unique, but this just creeps me out lol.

Your Toddler Killed My Newborn!!!

What would you do if your newborn died because of exposure to a disease that he or she was too young to receive vaccination for?

An episode of my favorite show Law & Order SVU came on last night that was about vaccinations and children. One woman's newborn died from the measles after being exposed to another woman's toddler at the park. The mother of the toddler took him to the park BEFORE he had any symptoms of the measles, but you are contagious before you show any symptoms. This mother, due to her research and religious beliefs, did not believe in vaccination and thought it would do more harm than good to her son.

For those of you that do not know, there are numerous vaccinations that babies under a certain age cannot receive due to the fact that their poor little bodies cannot handle it. This leaves them susceptible to so much. So the mother of the baby in this episode really couldn't have done anything to prevent her baby from getting it except to keep her in the house 24/7 until she was old enough to be vaccinated. Also, schools and other facilities will not even let your child attend until you prove they have had their vaccinations as a health precaution for the other children.

In this episode, the mother of the toddler who had the measles was being prosecuted because she chose not to vaccinate her child and it caused the death of the newborn. This was soooo controversial to me for 2 reasons...

Remember The Time - Michael Jackson


I have always wanted to shout that from the audience at one of his concerts and I am sooooo devastated I will never be able to! This man was ta-len-ted! I have The MJ Experience on the Wii and I swear I cannot see how he accomplishes all of those moves without skipping a beat! My godson LOVES MJ and it will be a sad day when he finds out he is no longer with us.


Annie Chun's Noodle Bowl Product Review - Yay or Nay?

I am back with another product review and this time it's food! My favorite supermarket, Harris Teeter, had these Annie Chun's Asian Cuisine Noodle Bowls BOGO (Buy One Get One [Free]) this past week. My friend and I happened to pass it and I figured hey, why not try something new for half the price! We also checked out the Nutritional Facts and it wasn't bad at all. They were $2 each with the sale and hey, I will pay almost $8 for ONE meal at a fast food joint so why not?

Below are the ones my friend and I tried:
- Kung Pao (me)
- Sweet Chili (friend)
- Garlic Scallion (me)
- Pad Thai (friend)

Of the two I tried, the Kung Pao was the best. The Garlic Scallion wasn't nasty, just was not as great as the Kung Pao! My friend liked the Sweet Chili over the Pad Thai. They are still BOGO through Feb. 14th so I plan to try them all! My genius friend actually used them as a side with some chicken. I am going to have to try that next time.

Their products are known to be all natural, have no MSG, and no preservatives! I also saw on the package that some, if not all, are totally Vegan! I am NOT a Vegan, but those that are, I think this is a great option. They also make rice and soup bowls, sauces, snacks etc. I don't know about you, but I love options, especially healthy ones so discovering something new to add to the menu is always a plus in my book!

For those of you who do not have Harris Teeter, below are some other popular stores you can find them at:
- A&P
- FoodLion
- Kroger
- Safeway
- Super Target
- Trader Joe's
- Walmart
- Wegmans
- Whole Foods

Final Grade: Yay!

Gettin' Jiggy Wit It - Will Smith

Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah...nah nah nah nah nah!!! Ya'll remember the dance waving your arms with your hands balled up in a fist? LOL. I still know the words to this song and think it was and still is a great party hit if it's the "throwback" segment of the party. Amazing what is considered "cool" depending on the time period. Now we (as in people...NOT me) are doing things like "stanky-legs" and "beef-it-ups". I am sorry, but I drew the line at the "Superman" by Soulja Boy and I am not even proud of that lol. Anyway enjoy!

P.S. Will Smith is still fine!
