What's Your Movie Dream Car?
by Auto Glass America

Tommorrow, Warren and I are going to the circus. Its just the Shriners circus, and last year I was rather disappointed, but he is looking forward to it, and since one ticket was free, for $7.00 I figure what the hell. The clowns are usually good for a laugh. Hopefully he's gotten over his souveniourites. I refuse to spend $7.00 for a $2.00 flashlight, with a piece of expanding plastic on the end, even if it does make a neat lightsaber substitute, or any other cheap plastic toy that seem like fun till you get it home and it takes up more space in a toy box already spilling over the top with cheap Happy Meal junk that never gets played with, and the assorted pieces of broken toys that can't be thrown out, because "the pieces are here somewhere, and look I can still use it like this".

I did get a great laugh tonight courtesy of her. However, if you are Uber conservative, you may find it a bit offensive. If on the other hand you are liberal, you may fall on the floor laughing your fool ass off.

Work as usual is about as much fun as getting your back walked on by a tiger in need of a manicure. I swear the human race is getting dumber every year, not smarter like some researchers keep trying to say. Why else would some one drop and order in the mail and then call two days later to wonder where it is. I can't tell you the number of people who call to track a package, only to have me tell them, well acording to UPS, it should be delievered today. One of these days the UPS person is gonna knock on the door while I'm on the phone.

"As a matter of fact, I think that is it now"
. Maybe its just because I've been in customer service of some kind almost all of my adult life, so I've made a living out of answering stupid questions. Maybe I'm just a cynic?.. Nah.. I prefer to believe people are just self centered idiots. Okay not all of them, but many of them.

I mean where else but in the US, would people make sport out of eating like a pig comming off a fast. ((I just watched the Food Network's Unwrapped, a show I usually love. They had a segment on competive gluttony). Maybe its just me, but when a large portion of the world does not get enough to eat, and when obesity and related health issues are at an all time high, trying to eat 45 hard boiled eggs, or 56 hotdogs in 3 minutes, just really seems in bad taste. And the guy who had to clean the bathrooms after the burrito eating contest, well he really ought to be given a medal for bravery under extreme circumstances. Talk about a situation ripe for testing out gas masks. I wonder if the US army is aware of this. It would be perfect, though I think even a seasoned veteran may regaard that as cruel and unusual.

My son has quite the imagination. When I asked him about his field trip yesterday, he tried to convince me that he got chased by a deer, and then got to ride on a buffalo. He almost had me, up until the buffalo part. I tell you that kid is a born story teller, he has an imagation that won't quite. When he was still going to PSJ, they were talking about wishes, he was that

  1. "mom would stop being so meen" (bipolar moms can be a challange sometimes(his spelling)
  2. Dad would stop smoking and
  3. He has super powers. (When asked what he would do with them, he said, stop the War in Iraq, send everybody home safe, and then he would take over as president of the United States. Kids got my vote)
Now how can you not like a kid like that. I can't wait to spend an entire Saturday with him. First circus and than pant shopping then who knows. Probably supper ala Subway. Sorry folks.. he's all mine..

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.
