That night, as the princess dined sumptuously on lightly sauteed frog legs seasoned in a white wine and onion cream sauce, she chuckled and thought to herself: I don't freakin think so.

Tuesday the bandage on my finger got wet at school so I changed it. Had to show off the finger before wrapping it up. Two days later as I'm walking down the hall one of the teachers asks me "So, how's Frankenfinger doing?" Took me a second or two to make the connection, but so funny it made the whole experience worthwhile. Almost.

Bleached blonde hair. Tight care-bear shirt and a short Levi cutoff skirt. Just enough extra weight on her 20-something frame to make this outfit you usually see on a 7th grade girl look kind of like a poorly stuffed sausage. She walks in talking on her cell phone, loudly, with a sing-song voice that brought me right back to my Jr. High teaching days (well, it was only a year ago). Even at the counter we can hear her talking at the back of the store. Things like whatever!, omg, bff, inbd and other girly texting phrases. She goes through the entire checking-out process talking on her phone like this and as she walks out the door the guy I'm helping turns to me, holding back a laugh, and asks "What the hell was that?" An overweight 13-year-old that's old enough to buy beer. Thats what.

Danny calls me the other day and asks if I'd be willing to help him demolish his mother-in-law's bathroom if she paid us. The first thing out of my mouth was "pay us? what for?" We settled on lunch and the fun of demolishing a bathroom. So today Danny, Alex and I ripped out the whole bathroom and cleaned up (that's why she had to make us dinner, if we hadn't had to clean up we woulda had to pay her.)

NO GAS...On May 15th 2007
Don't pump gas on may 15th ; In April 1997, there was a "gas out" conducted nationwide in protest of gas prices. Gasoline prices dropped 30 cents a gallon overnight.On May 15th 2007, all internet users are asked not go to a gas station in protest of high gas prices. Gas is now over $3.00 a gallon in most places. There are 73,000,000+ American members currently on the internet network, and the average car takes about 30 to 50 dollars to fill up.If all users did not go to the pump on the 15th, it would take $2,292,000,000.00 (that's almost 3 BILLION) out of the oil companys pockets for just one day, so please do not go to the gas station on May 15th and lets try to put a dent in the Middle Eastern oil industry for at least one day.If you agree (which I cant see why you wouldnt) resend this to all your contact list. With it saying, ''Don't pump gas on May 15th"
On the surface, this looks like a great idea. But I thought about it and came to the realization that it is the typical American response. Choking on the crap in the air all winter is irrelevant. Global warming is too. And who gives a crap about the political problems caused by dependance on foreign oil. Nope, but we get really pissed off when gas gets up past $3 a gallon (Europe has been paying over $6 a gallon for years). And then, are we going to do something real about it? Are we going to give up our big-block V8 SUV's? Are we going to transfer our work closer to home so we have a shorter commute (or move closer to our jobs)? Car pool? Take the bus? Hell no, but we will put off filling up the car - for 1 day! That'll show them. Question : of the $3 BILLION dollars we take out of the oil companies pockets, how much will we really be giving them the day before in anticipation of this protest? How much will simply be postponed until the 16th? Doing it in '97 was obviously only temporary, what do we really expect to accomplish?
Here's a better idea - on the 15th of May flip off anyone driving a big SUV, Crown Vic, Corvette or any other gas-sucking hog, with no one else in the vehicle with them.

The Constitution and due process are in danger in America, as the Bush administration continues to run roughshod over our most fundamental constitutional rights.
We can no longer stand on the sidelines while the president extinguishes the light of American values, our civil liberties, and respect for law.
The America we know is disappearing, and the time to reverse this trend is now. I urge you to act immediately to:
1. Restore habeas corpus and due process.
2. Pass the Restoring the Constitution Act of 2007.
3. End torture and abuse in secret prisons.
4. Stop extraordinary rendition: secretly kidnapping people and sending them to countries that torture.
5. Close the detention center at Guantánamo Bay and give those held there access to justice.
6. Investigate wrongdoing and ensure those who broke the law are held accountable.
7. Restore American values and the rule of law.
Our commitment to freedom and fairness has made America the great country that it is today.
That is why we’ve come together to demand that you act immediately to preserve the hard-won rights that define us as a nation.
I stand with the ACLU and my fellow Americans, in person or in spirit, as we gather in Washington to restore our America this June 26, 2007.
