So I have a question…

How come the US can do a mass presidential election all in one night but we have to suffer through months of caucuses, primaries and crap just to get to the nominees? 

Why can’t that all be done in one day? Huh? Why I ask you!

itches….

I have an itch that I can’t scratch.  LOL

No seriously, almost nightly my left shoulder blade starts itching and I end up looking like a bear scratching his back against a tree!

It’s just weird.  That same area itches sporadically all the time!

Ironic instances in my life!

February 22, 2008 at 11:26 am (life) ()

It was time to renew the tag on the car…and I got this plate because I’m an animal lover…except for the raccoon I’m currently having a Mexican standoff with about using my attic as a base.

New car tag

Long story short, the raccoon figured out how to bust the soffit and fascia up against the roof where the first eave meets the top of the garage. Two estimates (1800 and 1200, animal removal is apparently a good business), serious bug bombs, wall banging and firing BB’s at it on the roof at9:30 at night (hence the Mexican standoff comment).

So I started laughing pretty hard at the tag office when I decided to get the tag. I really am an animal lover..just not for those animals that are smart enough to get through stuff like soffit and fascia and get into my house!

Hello blogsphere!

February 20, 2008 at 1:31 pm (movies, Uncategorized) ()

Ok, so I know I’m years late jumping on the blogsphere bandwagon, but hey, better late than never! LOL

A hearty HELLO to everyone out there and I hope I have enough time to keep myself and any eventual readers interested!

So a topic that sprung to my mind earlier this week as I was watching Star Wars 3 Revenge of the Sith and I was just so annoyed at a few things.

  1. they took the very strong and dymanic ex-queen, now senator Padme and made her a whiny, almost weak woman. Yes, I know she’s pregnant with Luke and Leia but still, why the dramatic personality shift? 
  2. How much more whinier could Anikin get in this movie?  I find it amusing to no end that this whiny, full of himself jock turns into Darth Vader, the most feared Dark Lord ever.

Of course, I should also say that I’m in the process of reading a ton of Star Wars books that follow the time line after the battle of Endor (that would be Return of the Jedi to you) and when I reading I can hear the voices of Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher et al.

Random Star Wars fun fact: C3P0 is written as Threepio  and R2D2 is written as Aretoo in the books.  Han and Leia get married and other stuff!
