At the speed of crazy!

I leave today!

I'll be taking an amtrak train from Barstow to Williams Arizona.

From there, I'll be able to check out The Grand Canyon Railway in all its glory! I'm quite excited!

I and a few other agents from Southern California will be staying at the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel, then off to Sedona for a Pink Jeep Broken Arrow Tour.

Then back to Williams and departing on the Railway for a stay at Maswik Lodge on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.

We'll do some sightseeting in Grand Canyon Village, head back the next day on the Railway, and then amtrak back from Williams to LA, and then transfer to San Diego Friday.

Pat will head down to San Diego Friday, since he's off. We'll spend the weekend with my mom and dad and maybe Nath and Jenelle. Beth the traitor is going to Disneyland without me! TRAITOR!

Anyway! Christmas presents for mom and dad, breakfast at Perry's, and a bit of alone time for Pat and I as we celebrate both his birthday and valentines, and our 5th anniversary together! *dances*

I hope you all have a great week! I won't have access to a computer, but I do have my cell phone. Leave a message, since service probably won't be all that great!!

Love you all!


Stupid Authors

Far be it from me to suggest that anyone steal anything, but this is going a little crazy.

Rowling Will Not Allow Harry Potter as E-Book
Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling will stand by her decision to deny the release of a Harry Potter e-book. The decision was previously justified by Rowling by expressing concern about online piracy and the desire for readers to experience the books on printed paper.

So if I loan my book to a friend, am I stealing? I don't understand this. If my friends and I swap I going to jail?? OMG NO! Don't loan me books people! I don't want to be criminalized (ha ha) for someone elses idiocy.

Grow up!!!

Why, Why, WHY?!

I thought it was cute, it's my blog, I'll post it if I want:

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting dead?

Why do banks charge a fee on "insufficient funds" when they know there is not enough money?

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?

Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection?

Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Whose idea was it to put an "S" in the word "lisp"?If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?

Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?

Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?

How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, "It's all right?" Well, it isn't all right, so why don't we say, "That hurt, you stupid idiot?"

Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?

The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

My Car

It's dying. It's almost dead.

An Ode To My Car:

From San Diego we journeyed far and wide!
To Vegas, Disneyland, and all places in between.
Through traffic thick and thin we drove.

I loaned you to my brother.
I missed you while you were gone.
But I got to see you often cause Nath and I hit places together all the time! *winks*
Nath left, I got you back. Not a fair trade.

Dad fixed you up all pretty-like and to Salt Lake we went together.
I'm sorry someone took your steering wheel our second night there.
Salt Lake held trials like no other.
My car and my sister were there for me.

We moved to Boise.
Weasel didn't like the ride.
When it rains you can tell.
Pat got a job in California.
After 8 weeks in Boise we had you towed to Ridgecrest.

From Ridgecrest it's been 3 and a half years.
Together through the 117ยบ summers and freezing winters.
Pat yelled at me for not checking your oil for over a year and a
lot of miles!
Back and forth to Wal-Mart every day.

Through smoking and quitting.
Through starting and quitting again. *winks*
Through the fun and pain of it car.

Soon we'll say goodbye.
I will miss you.
Thank you for the miles.
Thank you for the fun.
Thank you for not breaking down on me when I needed you the most.

My friend.
My car.

Funniest thing ever!!

Please don't click the following link unless you enjoy mindless ranting, excessive cursing for no reason at all except that it's fun, and you promise not to yell at me (dad). :p

With that said, Mud Piglet is ridiculously hilarious, and his rant against barstow is so right on!!!!


Again: Just in case you missed it - Parents of both myself and Pat should not click that link. Everyone else, enjoy! :)


Let's Rant, Shall We?

It's a damn groundhog, not a fortune teller.

And any animal you name "Phil" deserves to be roadkill.

Thank you.

Disney Pics Up!

Pat has been a busy boy!

He's got our DisneyWorld 2005 pics up at our gallery!


Thanks hon!!!! It wouldn't have been Disney without the picture with Mickey!

The last time I went to Disneyland was October 2005 with Tawnia. They were celebrating their 50th Anniversary. I saw the best shirt I've ever seen!!! It said "I like my husband, but I love Mickey". Bless Pat, I laughed my butt off. Next time I go, I'm getting it! *grins*

Bridge To Terabithia

I've been home a week tomorrow. Site is live, warhammer review still being written up. I'm almost done.

Tonight, I saw the trailor for the movie "Bridge to Terabithia". A book that, to me, epitomized my childhood. I burst into tears, completely confusing poor Pat.

I will have to see this movie by myself, and remember how many copies of this book I went through growing up....a good many I know. I will cry the whole way through, regardless of how badly they screw it up.

This book, is me, to its very core. It's so very personal, I shan't share any more. I'm just going to go reflect on how something so simple as a book title can make you feel 12 again.

I hated being 12.
