"Dead Men Don't Get the Munchies" or apparently walk properly either.

I was checking in this book today and I noticed somthing odd. If you look at the woman with the black leggings, you'll notice that she is standing without her legs crossed. But if you look at her feet, you'll notice that they're attached to the wrong legs.If you look at the close up pic of the woman's feet, you'll notice that the big toe on each foot is actually on the outside of each of her feet. Now you might want to take a moment to think about which side of your foot your big toe is on when you're standing with your legs straight.... Yeah, that's right, when standing normally your big toe is located on the inside edge of your foot, not the outside as in this picture, therefore I can only go with my previous assumption. The cover artist attached the womans feet backwards.

Now here's the Kicker (pun intended) in the other book in this series, titled "Cooking up Murder" The cover has the same problem...Misattached feet. So I have to think, this was done on purpose. How could a person not notice wrongly attached feet? Wouldn't you notice something was strange? Even if you couldn't put your finger on what it was right away?

(Originally posted on on my MySpace.)

OK, I found this on an old disc I haven't used since college. I don't know who wrote it, maybe it was me, maybe it wasn't, but I thought I would share. This is it...

Did you ever think that there's some things you never learned when you were young that maybe might have been helpful? I do. For example, People are stupid. Not just plain old stupid, but "I need to be locked up and kept from influencing the public stupid" because as we well know, the stupid people in life tend to procreate much faster than the rest of us and add to the stupid people population like rabbits. There should be a stupid people's home. We all have our stupid moments but it should be there for those people who only have moments of sanity instead and spend the rest of their lives in a stupid haze.

Am I wrong, or did that just need to be shared. I know I have similar thoughts quite a bit, but then what can I say, I'm surrounded by more than your average number of stupid people.

Damn Theives!

Yeah, I have 2 blogs and I'm pissed enough that I'm writing about this in both of them. Someone stole the rear driver's side wheel on my car yesterday. Rim, tire, all of it. I'm forced to drive around on that tiny donut tire (and why is it called a donut anyway, that's just stupid) until I can drag together enough money to buy a new rim and tire. The rim retail runs at least $179 and even the Junk yard is telling me $115. Where is the justice in life. Just because some lazy ass thief decided not to go buy a new tire for their car, I have to deal with the consequences. People need to learn how to take responsibilities for their actions. And do we think that the Police Department will catch these thieves? Seriously Doubtful. They couldn't even be bothered to send anyone out when I called. Just took the info over the phone and gave me a report number. A girl can't catch a break around here. You'd think that I live in some great big city, but no, just little old, takes 20min to get across town, 30 if there's traffic) Fort Wayne. I hope whoever did this gets some kind of debilitating disease and rots in hell.

My New FAVORITE website

Ok, I was bouncing through the blogs of people I know today and looking at the blogs and websites they list on theirs as interesting. While looking at one blog, I clicked on a link to . I have to say that it makes me happy! It's a website that (and I quote) "is dedicated to helping people learn how to style and manage their natural hair at home" It has everything from product reviews to instructions about how to do certain hairstyles. I can't say how much I love this site! Awsome is not even a big enough word to describe it! Check it out.

Sometimes,when i'm bored, or tired, angry, or just feel like it I write. I think it's a good outlet for things when you need to get something out.It doesn't matter if it makes sense to anyone but you. It doesn't matter if it rhymes or if it's long or short, as long as it says what you want it to. That is the beauty of poetry and of writing in general. There are so many times when you have things to say, feelings to express and sometimes nothing at all other than random words floating around. I say, write them down. You never know when it will help or make you feel better to get it out. And who knows, you might find out you're good at it :) So think about writing something, anything. Not only can it be beneficial, but you might like it and I can guarantee you that it will make you smarter.

Here is something I wrote back in July.

Look deeper than what you see.
So much lies underneath.
The surface world is transparent.
Waiting for someone like you
To look into the pool that is my soul
And see what lies beneath.
Look deeper than what you see
So Much can be hidden
By cloudy, grey emotions
That mask the truth so clear
Yet seems so hesitant to emerge
Look deeper than what you see
Under the shy exterior
Lies a person so beautiful
Take the time to see someone worth knowing
Just look a little deeper.

Language Barriers

OK, I know this blog isn't always serious. But I feel like I need to address an issue that seriously annoys me. It's the one we're I hear people say "If people live in America then they should speak American". First of all, do I really have to point out that there is no such thing as the American Language. If you type "American Language" into a search engine, the only thing your going to find is "American English." "Why" you might ask? Well, It 's because the common language in The United States is ENGLISH. That's write people. Let me spell it for you E-N-G-L-I-S-H. English. To say someone speaks American would make no sense. Would you like them to speak North American, or South American. In either event, you're going to have a problem. America is made up of people who originally, be it through ancestry or more recently, spoke languages other than English.

I actually heard a woman complain about her child learning spanish from a TV show that she parked her in front of for hours a day. Her exact words "I don't want her learning spanish when she can't even speak english yet." It's been shown that children who grow up bilingual actually do better in school. So why, I would ask, would there be a problem with a child learning more than one language during the time when, and it has been proven, it's easiest for them to learn. Wouldn't it make more sense to teach them at that age when they don't even know that they're learning because everything is new to them? I mean goodness, we live in a global society now, and while many countries do speak english now, why not give our children everything we possibly can to help them get ahead in the world?

Don't even get me started on the people that say things like "foreigners come to our country then they should speak english". Let's turn this around. Does that mean that when we visit another country, we should speak the language there? If we go to France, should we all speak french. IF Spain, spanish..Kenya, swahili or Brazil, portuguese? Those same people will look at you with a dumb look and go "No, they should speak english" Well, my question to these people is always the same. "Why? Why should they speak english?" I never can get a good answer. They don't know and they don't think about what they're saying. Why should a French person speak english in a country of people that speak french? and so on. Its ridiculous to think that America is so great that everyone should speak our language just to make our lives easier. Contrary to popular belief, the world doesn't revolve around Americans and our needs. I believe that the United Sates is a wonderful country and I'm glad that I was born here, but I think that many of our citizens are just full of themselves. We rely so heavily on the "look after #1" philosophy that we tend to forget that there are other things out there in life and in the world. Shouldn't we expect the same amount of thought and energy from ourselves that we expect to come from other people and other countries in the world? How can we tell someone else how to live and learn if we don't follow the same advice we dish out. Have we become a society of "Do as I say, not as I do" people? I don't know about you, bu t I aspire and hope that now and someday I can be better than that person who can't see his can't see what's right in front of them and rather than learn something would force others to give up part of who they are so that they can be the same type of close-minded people we're all forced to deal with everyday.

I say, let your children learn as much as they can, be it math, science, other languages, cooking, sports or anything else that will make them better and more intelligent people. If your child is learning a language you don't know, maybe you should take some time out and learn it with them and make not only them, but yourself smarter in the process. And if you find yourself confronted with someone who doesn't speak english, don't condemn them for it. Ask yourself What you would do in the same situation if you are in some country and you don't speak the language. Ask yourself how you would want someone to treat you if the situation were reversed.

And ,on a side note, we are the only country in continents of North and South America that believes we are the only people who can be termed American. Yes we took the term and made it our own, but if you tell someone from South America you are American, you just might get the response of "yeah, me to. Are you North American or South American? Which country are you from?"

Heelys. How old is to old...

OK, this topic was suggested to me by my cousin, who is 13yrs old and just happens to own a pair of heelys. For those of you no in the know, heelys are a brand of sneaker made by a company called, of course Heelys, Inc. They have a wheel stuck into the bottom near the heal of the shoe. When wearing these shoes you can walk and run just like you normally would, but if you shift your weight onto your heels you can roll instead. Now I personally think they're pretty cool. If I was a kid I'd be all over them.

The question of the day, however, is how old is too old to be rockin' the heelys. In the movie "Employee of the Month" Dane Cook's character "Zack" was perpetually wearing and using his heelys. Obviously, it goes without saying that he was too old. But at what age should you stop wearing them. At what age does owning and using a pair just make you look downright idiotic? Well, after a serious discussion with the cousin I mentioned above, we decided that we would give a slightly vague answer to this question. The answer we came up with involves, not age, but education. We decided that if you are in Middle School or younger (that's birth to grade 8) then you're allowed to have the heelys. Anything beyond that, and you really just need to go find something else to occupy your time.

So let me repeat this for you one more time. IF YOU ARE OLD ENOUGH TO BE IN OR HAVE FINISHED HIGH SCHOOL, COLLEGE...ETC. GET RID OF THE HEELYS. YOU'RE TOO OLD. It's like seeing someones 40yr old mother trying to wear the same clothes as her 18yr old daughter. Or that old man who never figured out he was old and is still up in the club trying to hook up with the ladies who are a 3rd of his age. Let'em go. JUST SAY NO.
