All buses should drive like that!
I love the car drivers giving way - that never happens in real life.

Porbably partly to do with the following police with flashing lights and sirens of course, but I reckon if you knew the driver was happy to ram you, you'd probably let him pull out into traffic occasionally, right?

I'm digging this new C-27J Cargo plane. They are putting the training facilities in Atlanta so I have just read about it. It was long over due since the days of the C-23 which I only saw in Panama.

I am amused with rich people who whine all the time about what fun poor people have.

Everything is funny today.

So the Guantanamo thread reminded me of an old song, for which the only title I could remember was One Ton Tomato...because that is how I sang it when I was a kid. So I googled One Ton Tomato. JACKPOT!

Only I sang it: One ton tomato. Well she's a one ton tomato. How many jokes have I invented without even knowing it?

Mum on the phone, telling someone (else!) about the recent trouble with my niece. When talking about the taxi driver that brought her home 20 miles through heavy snow on the promise of payment at the other end she said, "And he wouldn't even take any extra money! And he was a Muslim!"

I know she tries.

Went to dinner with my parents last night. It will be their 30th anniversary on Jan 25th and they're goin back to their honeymoon spot. I know from previous stories that my mom and dad eloped. From my previous understanding they met in Florida, fell in love, and then my dad decided he needed to move for a job. He told my mom that he didn't know where he was gonna end up, but he would send for her when he got there. Mom squashed that idea, told him she was going with him. I assumed that is when they traveled to back to Texas and got married in the Wylie courthouse.

Mom was talking about how they met in Florida and how she only spent 3 months in key west. She left for Florida on July 4th, met dad and they moved back here in October. I thought about it for a second, and went "Wait, you got married in January, that means you lived together before marriage!"
They had never told us this before, and they were outraged when I moved in with my boyfriend without getting married. They always claimed it was horrible for a person/relationship.

I am so freaking amused by their hypocrisy. Every time I think about it I smile and chuckle...

Bless her. So many people are willing to shout from the roof tops the second a muslim is less than friendly/respectful. Or even when theyhave third or fourth hand stories of muslims who have been less than friendly or respectful. It's nice to hear someone doing the opposite.


I have a friend (Jill) who is a lovely lass, good working-class values etc. Little bit racist :P Not in a nasty way: she'd never be vile to anyone and gets on very well with several asian people in the area, including one old man who comes to the pensioner's group she runs. She was telling me about her niece's baby who was born on Christmas eve majorly premature, teeny tiny thing. Parents can't touch him yet. She was expecting to see it mentioned in the Courier (local rag). But no. Wasn't there. Oh but they had mentioned another boy who was born that evening, also premature but nowhere near as early. 'Oh yeah,' she says, with a knowing look, 'They mentioned the Asian baby'.

*shakes head* Like it;s some kind of conspiracy.

She's also convinced that if an Asian walks into the benefits agency they'll be set up faster and better. That if they go to the housing office they'll jump the queue and be given a big house.

Bless her though, she's stopped saying paki when I'm there :P

He knew, she knew, if he didn't get his money his underwear would blow up.

A friend got a call over the weekend that a hoarder's house was being cleaned out, and they were throwing away a bunch of albums. My friend is a big music collector, so he couldn't resist. He 'only' brought back around 450, but his companions grabbed a couple thousand each. Here they are, dumpster diving.
