"Children who have an involved father in their lives in the early years show up for school with more of the qualities needed for learning. They are more patient, curious, and confident. They are better able to remain in their seats, wait patiently for their teacher, and maintain interest in their own work."

Well, that explains a lot about Barney...

Seriously, the more I learn about child development and welfare, the more I understand Barney as not a caricature, but as a real person. :)

I don't even know how to feel about this episode. Even after talking to Phoe, Snogged, and Vim about it I don't know. I feel 10 different emotions at once.

Alright, since it's not like I have any homework due tomorrow or anything, I may as well continue the procrastination with this lovely 30 Days meme that's been going around, but stolen more specifically from [ profile] vimtastic. Joy!

Day 01 → Your favourite song
Days 2-30 )

It is really difficult to pick a favorite song, but for the past many months it's been "Endless Night" from The Lion King Original Broadway Cast soundtrack. I discovered the musical last summer, and I fell in love with this song. I had already loved the score maybe more than the movie's lyrical songs already, so when this part of the score was made into a song, I was absolutely floored. Jason Raize had such a beautifully powerful voice, and the emotion in it is so compelling. It's so tragic that he wasn't around much longer - I feel like he had so much more to give to the world. "Shadowland" is also a very good piece of score turned song in the musical, but "Endless Night" I have listened to on repeat because I love listening to it, as well as in a therapeutic manner to calm down when I've been nervous or anxious. So that's my speech on this song. Just absolutely beautiful. Have a listen (plus bonus "He Lives In You")!

Bottom line: I am SO excited to see "The Lion King" next month. SO. EXCITED.

Also, a random thought: Today I had such a bad case of "slippy sock" from that Ted/Victoria fic by [ profile] dipenates Anyway, it made me think of that fic. Good times. :)

Since I've been posting photos anyway, I figured I'd do this too while I'm at it. This one I promise is interesting rather than shallow.

WARNING: Inexplicable, out of left field, kind of shallow post! (You guys know I don't normally think/talk about these things, but hopefully you guys won't judge too much)

I know I talked to someone about this last season, but I can't remember who? Anyway, at the time, my point was, Robin/Cobie was looking rough. And mostly because she got way too skinny, but last season because whoever was taking care of her hair wasn't doing their job. So imagine how happy I was to see her looking much healthier post-baby :)

Pictorial evidence that she's gotten back to her lovely season 1 looks:

clicky... but don't if you haven't seen 5.01 Definitions )
