Share the road?

Who do you think the sign refers to? Cars sharing with bikers? Or bikers sharing with cars? I have my doubts for each.

I was first surprised to hear about driver animosity with bikers in Lance Armstrong's book where he mentioned truckers treating him on a bike with little respect, but since then I have gotten my license, and spent a year running trails with bikers yelling every time they passed me, and I have to say, most of them are buttheads.

Black Swan

I just got back from Black Swan. I know many of you won't be seeing it because it is rated R, but it keeps whirling through my head and I need to talk about it.

It was much more of a psychological thriller than I was expecting, and my stomach was basically in knots the whole movie, or I would be cringing and hiding my face. Yet it was beautiful. And gross. And weird. But definitely, definitely, definitely unforgettable.

I can't decide if I love it or hate it.  I feel like there needs to be a discussion on symbols and what everything means.

But I know that Natalie Portman can act (as if I didn't know that already. Girl is GENIUS!) because half the time I was watching the movie I wanted to shake her and tell her to get herself some gumption. 

And I know Natalie Portman isn't really like that. 

PS. Isn't that like the freakiest picture ever?? I didn't even see a trailer before I saw the movie, or that picture. It might've been prudent of me to research what I was getting into....

People ask me allll the time how I got to be so smart and worldly. Did you catch the sarcasm?

I just tell them I got it from my parents.

I  made a "that's what she said" joke to my Mom the other night- not that I usually do, that's SO 2007, but she just set it up so perfectly. Then she didn't get it and asked if I was making a sexual joke. So I suppose it is, and say yes. Then she gets mad and says that I shouldn't say that kind of stuff to my mother. Then I say, HELLLOOO I know you watch the Office!!

She had never "heard" it before. I put it in "" because she does watch the show but had never caught onto it. *headsmack*  She didn't even believe me until we watched a recent episode- which I wouldn't even think one of those jokes would be on because they cut them back, but sure enough it was. And she missed it. Again.


And for my oh so wise and observing father discovered in Australia while he was reading a sign that "UGG Australia" is not pronounced U-G-G Australia, but "ugg". He had never heard of them before.


Yep, the apple sure doesn't fall far from the tree.

Hand Model

There aren't really words for this....

I'm surprised that she deigns to even touch the products she is advertising though...

Good night, good luck, good grief

My sister shared this little tidbit with me. I think non-Groban fans would appreciate this because it is just plain funny.

*It helps if you find him adorable though.*

Part 2 of 2. You can find part one on the internetz.

Ps. I made a second batch of stuffing today, partly because I love stuffing, partly because we still have half of our turkey left. Which I cooked btw- nbd. (lolz!)
