Why Is It?

Why is it that the "Today Show" thought it was a good idea to have Al Roker and Matt Lauer try out the 2-man luege during the Olympics.........AND they wore the spandex?

Why is it that I feel the need to procrastinate and not get my long to-do list done?

Why is it that 7-Elevyn stores have locks on the door?

Why is it that a 33-year old person has to still have acne......right next to the wrinkles?

Why is it that my daughter worries about being 'fat'...........when she's 8-years old and stick thin?

Why is it that there is still a stigma attached to mental illness............when the person with the disease has no more control over it than if they had cancer?

Why is that now that we have advances in the medical field to allow people to live longer.........our (US) social security system is dying?

Why is it that some people still relate breastfeeding to something of a sexual nature and women are asked to not expose themselves in public while trying to nurture their baby?

Why is it that George Bush is an idiot yet he was still reelected?

Why is it that anti-abortion activists murder people to prove their point?

Why is it that people drive to the health club(trying to find the closest parking spot possible) to run/walk on the treadmill?

Why is it that I had a 20-something year old call me mum :) ?

Why is it that my daughter had a dream that I was pregnant?

Why is it that people have a hard time being happy for others when they are successful......but instead are jealous?

Why is it that the internet has connected people all over the world..........yet we usually don't get to know our next door neighbors?

Why is it that I keep asking "Why is it?" ?
Why is it that

    i don't know the answer to any of your why is it questions but I definately have a few why is it questions of my own.

    A LOT OF THEM... especially now!

    Most of them are actually why me? questions but i've got a few why is it's too.

    I'm sneaking by a few fellow bloggers tonight as I'm having a bit of a severe case of insomnia... the morphine isn't really knocking me out like it used too.

    hope all is well.

    I like the one about the health club. I have often wondered that myself!

    Your daughter had a dream that you were pregnant? Hmm....

    Good questions - let me know if you ever find any good answers!!

    I just wanted to say thank you for your very kind words on my blog this morning. As you can imagine, it's been unpleasant dealing with people who have more sympathy for animals than people, and your kindness is very much appreciated!!

    As far as Bush getting re-elected... well, I'll fess up to voting for him. Not because I think he's brilliant, but in a choice between him and Kerry, I'll go with Bush, and I won't go into my personal reasons behind that. It seems like it always comes down to "the lesser of two evils."

    Marisa,

    Yeah I've been busy outside (emptying truckloads of soil into our garden boxes *great for building up the muscles* , burning leaf piles, mowing grass, pulling weeds) you name it I've been doing it. So glad to see you're "out and about" in blogland :) . I hope you're doing well. Have you made it home yet? Can't remember when that was supposed to happen.
