Peppermint Twirl...and a Rant :D

What would the weekend be without a Rant???

But first...


Le Adorable Peppermint Twirl skirt & tee...


Such a cute little outfit! 3 of these little fabrics are LOOONG gone, so it is truly One of a Kind.



So TomKat are getting married, like today in Italy. Right?

The wedding (according to a CNN estimate) cost apporximately 1.5 mil.

ONE POINT FIVE MILLION DOLLARS???? Are you KIDDING ME???

1.5 million dollars for 2 actors to perform in front of their fellow actor (read: mostly shallow & self absorbed) friends, in a ceremony that isn't legal in the country it is performed in, via a religion said country doesn't even recognize. Hmmm.

Do you know what else you can do with 1.5 million dollars?

With 1.5 million dollars you could:
  • Donate 1500 brand new desktop computers to an underpriveleged school district
  • Send 75 kids to a state college for 4 years...tuition free
  • Buy 2 weeks worth of groceries for 7500 needy families
  • Write a $40 check to every single teacher in Oklahoma as a Christmas bonus. EVERY SINGLE ONE. (And yes, $40 is a lot of money to a teacher. Especially one in Oklahoma.)
  • Pay for 1 month's prescriptions for 10,000 senior citizens
  • Cover the outstanding hospital costs for 10 children with cancer.
  • Feed 1.5 million starving children.
More than 1 Billion people in this world live on less than $1 a day.

You do the math.

  1. I agree with you about better ways to have spent the money. At least, though, they have the money to start. What gets me are the people who go into serious debt for a wedding/reception. I can understand wanting the day to be memorable but do you really want the Visa bill to be one of the memories that last for years?

  2. I guess you can split it in the divorce proceedings & each pay off half? :P
