Random Tuesday thoughts


1. If you have a four-wheel drive vehicle and it's snowy out, do you feel it's kind of your duty to drive in the untouched snow on the roads for other people? Like, wussy rear-wheel drive can't smoosh down that annoying pile of snow in the middle of the lane, so you'd better take care of it. Or is that just me?

2. I love the words "epitome" and "rendezvous." I like the way they're spelled and roll off my tongue. There are others, but I can't think of them right now.

3. I have to watch either The Terminal or Dances with Wolves for my interpersonal communications class and then write a paper. I've seen The Terminal, and from what I can remember, it was Tom Hanks does Borat or something. And the other movie is FOUR HOURS LONG. Gah.

4. When I'm at the grocery store and some dipshit is blocking the whole entire aisle with their cart while price checking peas, I dream of ramming their cart with mine while shouting "MOOOOOVE" like Jimmy Fallon in this SNL skit.

5. Do you ever sit and think about how much money we give away to insurance companies for absolutely nothing in return? I mean yeah, they'll be there in case something happens, but for the most part, we just give them money for free! For nothing at all in return! I've never made a claim on my car insurance in all the fourteen years I've been driving. It hurts my head.

6. I wish I had blueberry cheesecake for breakfast again.

7. I have to go watch The Terminal now. At least Tom Hanks doesn't wear a g-string in the movie, right?

"Tom Hanks does Borat", lol! Yeah, pretty sure there's no G-string. There are plenty of other movies about communication, though...those are odd choices.

Happy Tuesday!

My nephew's favorite movie when he was four was Dances With Wolves-gah! I know, I hate paying for "air"! Damn insurance companies! :/

I loved my all wheel drive Subaru! I had it for 10 years before I traded it in for my wussy mini-van. Those are great words! Hmm, now I'm trying to think of words I like to say 'n spell.

I'd choose the Terminal if I had to pick one. I TOTALLY get the insurance thing. Speaking health wise, I have to pay 5 grand out of pocket before they'll cover me (then it's 100%) but it's also $400 a month just to have it. My hubby writes CODE for insurance companies! RAGE!

I haven't seen The Terminal, but dancing with the Wolves was looooong. And boring. I fell asleep after the 2nd hour, and I remember waking up and thinking "those are two hours I'll never get back".

Blueberry cheesecake sounds fantastic. I would totally eat it for breakfast. Or any time of the day, really.

Haha! I do the same thing with my car! I'll take care of it by gunning through a pile of snow on the corners for the poor shmucks who can't...that's just funny!

I've seen both movies, and liked "Dances With Wolves" better.

4 Wheel Drives are the bomb. :)

I don't get to drive in snow often enough, but when I do ... look out! I love it! I agree with Ginny Marie - I'm also a Subaru driver (sorry to hear she got rid of hers).
