I really need to get some sleep. Warren and I rode bikes tonight to the mall to see The DaVinci Code. I thought Ronnie did a pretty good job, Tom Hanks wasn't my first choice for Robert Langdon, but he did a pretty good job, despite making the part a bit to Tom Hank-sy. Don't ask.
I knew there would have to but cuts and changes to translate the book to movie, but a few things that were cut, I think should have been left in. I won't spoil it for anybody who hasn't seen the movie, or isn't familiar with the story, but a couple lines near the end should have been left as they were in the book and one key revelation (no not THAT revelation, a still important, but not as important one) was cut out. I mean really a couple of lines would have been all that was needed. The actor was already there, would it have been that hard. I can see what he was trying to do, and over all the movie did work for me. When they first announced it was going to be made into a movie, I wasn't too keen on the fact it was going to be a Ron Howard/Tom Hanks movie, but I was a lot less disapointed than I expected to be. Regardless of your feelings toward the subject matter, the movie brings up a lot of ideas and issues worth discussing (the book does a better job of this), especially in regaard to the church's views on women (or should I say against women). No I don't think everything in the book is fact, though some of it is definately open to questioning, and I think there is probably a lot about the early Christians that is not as we think, and much of what we have been told is not the truth, the whole truth or nothing but the truth. Read the book, see the movie, make up your own mind. Don't let somebody else tell you what to read, see or think. Ask questions, read, ponder, figure out things for yourself.

On to other subjects.
To Jessica in Los Angles, it ain't 1945 anymore, this isn't the corner store with 100 customers where we know everyone. I'm sorry I couldnt locate your check or track it down, when you mailed it without writing out your order, and expecting us to just hold your phoned order in the system until you got around to mailing the check. But when you call us at 5pm on a Saturday just what did you really expect? I understand not all people have Credit cards. I dont' have one. But there are debit cards. If you really prefer to write checks than why is it so hard to mail your damn order with it. If you have vision issues, there are ways around that also. Biting my head off, won't fix anything
To Nancy in Minneapolis,
I am not a crisis line, or a counciling hotline. If you are lonely and desperate for someone to talk to go find some friends. Judging by what you yapped at me, you are clearly not homebound. I will help you get your catalog, I will listen and be polite because I know how it feels to need someone to talk to, but after an hour of listening to your none stop yapping about everything, from your car, to the rude people at Byerly's to your complaints about the Somalians, did you really think I had nothing else to do. I am at work, not just sitting at home on my sofa watching television. I get paid by the hour, but I have certain stats I have to maintain. Please get help.
Dear Lady in New Jersey who's name I can't remember. Please don't eat while you are on the phone. Phone's maginify sounds. Would you like it if I chewed in your ear? It is really quite gross.
Dear people under the Mason Dixon, I am sure it is just a cultural things in some areas, but call me a crazy midwestener. When you call me darling or honey at the end of every single bloody sentence, not only does it loose all meaning, but it drives me up a bloody pole. But than that's just me. I reserve those terms for people who I know personally and very closely. I don't throw them around willy nilly to every random stranger I meet.
Dear Talky Tina,
If you want me to answer your question, you have to shut up long enough to let me answer it.
Deal Stella in Brooklyn. Not only is there such a thing as too much information, there is also such a thing as Way way too much information. I really dont' want to know the private toilet habits of a random stranger. I have no problem making small talk, but can we keep it out of the bathroom and the bedroom please. I'm just glad I don't know what you look like or I'd have to put my eyes out.
Don't you just wish you had my job.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.
I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.
I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
