Here is the plot. Boy meets girl. Girl falls in love with boy. Boy dies. Boy comes back as someone else, or at least girl thinks so. Girl has sex with new, much younger boy. Everything is weird all around. The relationship is very inappropriate.
Is this topic that popular? The movies were made about the same time. I find this incredibly weird.

I wish I could have found the clip from Jeopardy! It was absolutely incredible! The horse stood on only it's back legs, but was parallel to the ground, WITH a rider! They called it something like a lever, maybe. WOW!

I have to think of a student from a different culture, economic background, or academic experiences that I could learn from inside or outside the formal classroom structure.
Translation: something stupid I don't care about.
As you can see it is coming along nicely. My days are numbers. March 1st is the dead line.

My sister-in-law called me and told me that she would have to tell Madge what her boyfriend was doing. We didn't know his name so I couldn't have been Steve. Then I am sort of confused so I say okay and ask where she lives. She tells me that Madge lives next door. Huh? Really? This strange guy that we thought was Madge's boyfriend was really mean and he would sit in his car and point a shotgun towards the ground aiming at something. This frightened me because I was walking this little tiny dog, and I didn't want him to shoot it. Later in the dream after that was settled, which I am not really sure how it got settled. Me and Kyle and Madge and Steve would wake up in the morning and have breakfast outside then take out dogs to some park/lake. Behind our backyards were these big fields and they had tons of porcupines in them. I went in the back yard and the fences were low on the sides of the house, but not at the back of the yard. Madge was in her backyard knitting and telling me all the gossip from the other neighbors. I was looking at these roses in the backyard in amazement. They were all these different types of small antique roses in white and yellow. They were doing really great and the yard was landscaped really beautifully and we had green grass. Which is really strange cause our yard looks like shit and we have some roses in our yard that we inherited from the people before us. They are hearty as shit we can't mow them down. They are in the strangest places. There is one that is right at the corner of the house in the backyard only not by the house it is about eight feet from the side of the house. So basically it is in the middle of the yard. We also have this rose on the side of the house were no one can see it.
The reason, I am sure of it: I was looking at some pictures on the computer of Kyle in Spain. There was some pictures of some of the people who were there in the same program Kyle was. One of the girls looked a lot like Madge.
Don't you think the one on the right looks a lot like Madge?

Now for a little secret I hate to admit. I love Leonardo DiCaprio. I know, I hated him for the longest time. I always thought he was really overrated and not a very good actor. I never thought he was that attractive. I always thought he looked like a kid. Really, I think I blamed him for having to sit through that big giant shit of a movie Titanic. Good God, I didn't think I was going to get out of that one alive. I do really like his acting, and he doesn't look like a kid anymore. He plays the violent, angry, intense guy really well. And then he is there with his shirt off and, oh, yeah, okay, yeah, I really like him. Guys have it so easy. They just keep looking better as they age.
Another secret. I really like Marky Mark. I mean not his music. Some of his movies are crappy. But ever since I Heart Huckabee's I really love him. That whole brooding thing really gets to me. Plus he is really attractive and quite huge. I Heart Huckabee's almost made me like Jude Law. Still don't like him, but I almost thought he was likable. I love Entourage and that is based on Mark Wahlberg. He does look really good in that shoulder holster with his shoulders all bulgy. Oh, my! I mean look at those forearms! Wow!

I just want to go into a room and sit and be left alone for the entire time I am at work. Is that so much to ask? I don't want to answer phones I don't want to answer people's questions. I don't want to have to look at anybody. When I worked at Atomic the thing I hated most about my job was having to listen to people when they wanted to buy jewelry. Those were the single most mind-numbing, one sided conversations I have ever had to endure. Women mostly, would honestly ask my opinion about some dangle, gaudy, naval jewelry. What do you say? That is the single ugliest piece of shit I have ever seen. No, but when someone asks you for the fiftieth time that day, "Will this match my outfits?" an "I don't give a fuck!" would have felt really good.

Finished Fried Green Tomatoes. I am convinced that Ruth and Idgie are gay. In the movie I didn't think so, but the book is very different. They are compared to married couples, the son that Ruth has is called "Ruth and Idgie's baby". It is like she wrote a love story about a gay couple and forgot to mention it. Maybe not, maybe I am wrong. It sure did seem like it though.

Then, of course, I have a complaint about work. I was putting out freight, paper specifically. I don't know if you know this about me, but I hate people. When I am doing something specific I don't like to be bothered. This is partly do to my memory thing. Sometimes it is hard to remember what I was doing. So this man walks up to me. Standard middle aged man. I know bad news when I see it and it generally comes in the form of someone middle aged. He asks me where the file folders are. I think and tell him that I don't think we have any. Then in a way to loud, outraged voices he cries out, "NO FILE FOLDERS? AT AN OFFICE SUPPLY STORE?" And gives me this look like I am the stupidest person on the face of the Earth. Now, you may not know this about me, but I don't work at an office supply store. I work at a craft store. At this point I couldn't even look him in the eye. "Um, well this isn't an office supply store. This is an arts and craft store. The office supply is next door." I am trying to not just completely fly off the handle at him. Then he says, " I got the wrong door." And walks away. Just walks away. No apology. As he was walking away I wanted to tell him, "Hey, how about an apology, dick? Because even if this was the office supply store and for some reason we didn't have file folders there is absolutely no reason why you would need to talk to the employee like than because it wasn't like they made the order or anything. You cock suck!" But instead I thought what a douche bag. He walked across the store past beads, and about thirteen miles of fake flowers to get to the paper. When did office supply stores start selling fake flowers and bunny trinkets for Easter?
Okay, last complaint I promise. This woman asks me for a couple of things. All of which were art supply related. Do you have to use a special pen to do calligraphy when you are left handed? Because she was telling me that you did... I don't believe her. But unless it is out with the other calligraphy stuff we don't. So then she asks about this paper or that paper and blah, blah, blah. We didn't have that stuff either. So then she tells me, with no malice or ill content, "I guess we can't do business then." What? Are you under the disillusion that you and I are doing business? I am not getting your money. The business the store does effects me little. I can have a new job in heart beat. Leave. Your not hurting my feelings. Why would you say that? I just don't get it.

T-shirt Detail again
You can't tell but there are gold sparkles in it.
Homemade floating candles and Jazzed up matches for the candles
Handmade Apron from scratch no pattern
And Finally Jesus Christ!
mixed media collage on canvas board, acrylic transfer mary, water color roses, arylic background very fun. This has nothing to do with our swap. I was feeling uninspired and then I found Jesus. The Lord came into my heart and made me want to glue something.

Who loves Aqua Teen Hunger Force? You will love this little doozie!!! You gotta watch all the videos too! It is just priceless.
At first it is funny cause they talk about he mooniinite, "The moon men, or Mooninites, as they're known to the show's faithful, are delinquent outer-space men who make frequent appearances on the program. Photographs of the devices show several tiny lightbulbs protruding from a circuit board that houses wiring and at least four batteries."
Then it goes down hill when the assholes from Boston officials talk, "Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis called the stunt "unconscionable," while Boston Mayor Thomas Menino called it "outrageous" and the product of "corporate greed." Democratic Rep. Ed Markey, a Boston-area congressman, added, "It would be hard to dream up a more appalling publicity stunt."
Then it is pretty good again when you find out that the signs had been up in Boston for week and in other places like Austin and Seattle and a dozen other places.
"In Portland, police Sgt. Brian Schmautz said officers had no plans to remove any of the signs, so long as they weren't on municipal property. Nor had officers been dispatched in any kind of bomb scare related to the devices.
'At this point we wouldn't even begin an investigation, because there's no reason to believe a crime has occurred,' Schmautz said."
Boston expects to be reimburssed for the man hours and bomb squads and all the stupid shit they did. I hope Turned Broadcast tell them to go suck a fat one.
While I am on the topic, "Fluke Or, I Know Why the Winged Whale Sings" is excellent. I finished this weeks ago. It is great. It was still sitting by my bed and every time I passed by I would think about it. I finally just put it away on it's shelf. I love Christopher Moore. I love his books too. But that isn't the real reason I love him. The real reason is this.
I asked him to draw me a doodle. He did. He giggled. It was funny. A little back story on the doodle: I went to a David Sedaris book signing at Book People. It was incredibly crowded and the whole thing took about 5 hours of waiting. When I finally got up there he drew this little jack-o-lantern in my book with his signature. When I went to Christopher Moore's book signing I thought, "Wouldn't it be way neat-o if every book I got signed by an author had a doodle too!"
If you go to the Book People website you have to check out the Leslie's What to Wear Refrigerator Magnet Set. Leslie is an Austin famous transvestite. It gives some back story. You should check it out.
