I'm so disappointed in the verdict in the casey anthony trial. I wasn't completly blown away, just sad. There is no doubt in my mind about her guilt I just wish they would have been able to prove it. And her mother, Cindy, really flipped on me. I understand that Casey is her daughter, but the way she acted in court- showing no remorse and making everything everyone else's fault- I don't see how she could support and lie for her. I don't see how anyone could NOT see Casey for the selfish monster that she is, and how she could stand by her is beyond my comphrehension.
I feel bad for that sweet little girl Caylee, but if that entire family is half as screwed up as what Casey tried to portray then maybe it's better she's no longer here. Not that I'm glad she died, I'm not, no child deserves that!
I hope with all my heart that she is never able to have another child.
.....and that's my rant on that.....
Onto something new- I've been trying new things for dinner. Not like super exotic or anything, just variations with chicken mostly. ha. Last night I made tangy ranch chicken. All that's required is mustard, ranch and brown sugar- odd, right?! I didn't go into it with high expectations, but it turned out wonderfully. It's something we will have more frequently. I even made 'from-scratch' loaded mashed potatoes and they were just as freaking good. Tonight I made taco casserole but added a few new things and it turned out pretty delicious too. I've got a few other things to try and i need to find some more reciepes. I'm just ready for something new. And I've been craving the CRAP outta some meatballs, so that may be on the menu very soon.
In music news I've been listening to florence and the machine lately and her voice is so..riveting and beautiful and haunting. ah. "The girl with one eye" is my absolute favorite even though it's such a mean song. I hope that at some point she comes to within a reasonable distance, I can't wait to see her.
So we've got this big, wonderful list of names for boys. I think it's up to like 22 or something. The girls name list has not done quite so well. Yesterday I made a list of 18 and had nicko narrow it down to the ones he liked. He chose 4! Two of which I knew he'd like (Nicko and Jude). I think Ava Jude is still a possibilty-I need to talk about that..
I desperatley want a girl but she may not have a name because obviously we aren't going to be able to agree on anything. If we ever have one that is. Nicko claims we're going to have all boys. (One girl is all i ask.)
Anyway, the other two names are Rebekah and Jane. Simply Southern. :(
Who knows what will come out of what we've got. We may find something that we both love- but I think that day is far, far away. Light years possibly.
