Could Be a Bad Thing

Today as I was driving to work, the "Bookmobile" was a few cars in front of me. I was pondering how nice it is that people who can't get to the library or live in rural areas can still have access to books. "Aren't books a wonderful thing", I thought... Yadda, yadda, yadda, I'm thinking warm fuzzy thoughts about the bookmobile. Then I reached the edge of town where the road turns to two lanes. I pulled up next to the Bookmobile and saw that in actuality, it was the Bloodmobile.
Cari's Tip of the Day: Don't confuse the Bookmobile and the Bloodmobile or you may be very unpleasantly surprised.

Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Speaking for women everywhere, I will say that I fully admit that we OCCASIONALLY do stupid things. We don't mean to and we try not to, but once in awhile something overtakes us and, yes, it does happen. Sometimes these stupid things affect the people around us, ie our husbands or children, but even worse than that is when we do something stupid that only affects us. Take for example, me. Now I consider myself to be a fairly level headed, thinking sort of person. I weigh the consequences of most of my actions and even tend to over-think most things. (my decision to bring home a new puppy, not withstanding). So the question I pose is why in the world would a over-thinking, conservative, non-risk taking person like myself decide to cut my own hair?? No good can come of that. I know that, you know that.....so WHY? I have no answer, just a really bad haircut. It seems my new fashion statement can be summed up in one word. Hat.

Yo Ho, Yoo Hoo?

I finally made it out of the house the other night to see Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest with a friend. It was great and entertaining and for 2 hours and 30 minutes made me forget about all the stress in my life.

However, there was a different kind of stress as I watched the movie. As we waiting to go into the theater, my friend and I saw MANY little kids going in with their parents. I'm talking LITTLE kids. I was worried for them the whole way through the movie. I'm not sure if any of them got any sleep that night, but I had plenty of nightmares for them. During the film, I had the pressing urge several times to jump out of my seat and cover the eyes of some unsuspecting little kid. My son is four and obsessed with pirates and wears his pirate hat day and night. (And I mean all day and all night - until it falls off in his sleep), but that movie would scare him to death. He gets nervous watching The Incredibles. My final movie review - This is a fantastic flick, but if you want to get any sleep, leave your little first mates at home.
