Am I going to hell?

I am a thief! Well...

I am an accomplice!

Mr J stole a glass from Red Robin in my purse. So tell me, is it cool enough to risk hard time?

Update 7/26/2009: Mr J is now FREAKING OUT that he paid for our meal with his credit card, and that they might charge the cost of the glass to it. (I have estimated the cost to be $50.) Silly man, you always pay cash if you don't want something to be traceable.

Warning - Spoilers

Harry Potter! Why is everyone talking about Harry Potter??! I work around many people, who are threatening death to anyone who "spoils" the end of the movie. Anyone who was actually interested in the storyline has already read the books. Everyone who read the book, knows how this book ends. Everyone realizes that they're really ghosts, Hermione is really a man, Darth Vader is Harry's father, and SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE!

Less pollution?

Car update:

I am never getting my car back. The technicians at Carmax are using my car to smuggle illegal Mexican gummy bears into the country.

Whatever, it's cool. I can walk everywhere, right?

Summer niiiiiiiiights.

Something about summer queues all the family television channels into playing the movie Grease ad nauseam. Like many people in the country, I will stop whatever I am doing to watch this movie when I see that it's being played. The movie has some sort of hypnotic power, that if it wasn't for the commercial breaks, I would starve to death on the weeks that it's played 24/7.

But it got me thinking about a post I wrote in April of 2008:

Sandy and Danny, two teens crazy in love. Unafraid of what the rest of the world will say, a preppy girl dating a bad boy. But to those of you scoffing at them, thinking Sandy's throwing her life away being with Danny, remember: Danny and his friends invented the flying car!

Go Greased Lightning!

Don't believe that it flies? Watch this video. (The car shows up about 2:30 in)

Our founding fathers weren't as cute as David Cassidy

July 4th, the United States of America's Independence day. Back when I lived in Germany, with my Air Force family (and we only had one American TV channel to watch) my mother and I would watch "1776" on this day, every year. While I fondly remember it, any conversation about that movie with Opera Mom always ends up turning towards the movie "The Spirit of '76", a movie I'm sure David Cassidy wishes we would forget.

And thanks to the joys of YouTube, you can join me in spending the holiday thinking about stupid movies and their trailers. (Instead of blowing your arms off while trying to set off illegal fireworks.)

A synopsis of the movie provided by, "Future Americans decide to time travel to 1776 to ask the founding fathers for the solutions to their problems. A glitch in the time machine changes their destination to 1976. Still believing themselves to be in 1776, the time travellers attempt to study this "ideal" civilization. 70's jokes, props and stars abound."
