Interesting toys...

Candy WHAT??!!!

Found these in a candy shop in Solvang. They had 2 or 3 varieties. I haven't seen these since i was a little kid!
Used to play with these and eat them, yet never became a real smoker...
Lots of kids play with lightsabers too, yet never use real ones...

Election Day

It's election day. Thank goodness.
I'll be glad when it's over.

City Council

Our City Council meetings aren't videotaped and televised. At a recent candidates debate, it was discussed that anybody who wants to see the city council meetings could come to the meeting. I don't agree with that. Among those who do not or can not attend are homebound elderly persons, disabled, parents unable to afford a babysitter, those without transportation or afraid to walk to the meetings and come home at night in the dark, or even the terribly shy (to which i can personally relate, it's an intimidating atmosphere). So no, not everyone can just "come to the meetings". And even if they could, some of us would melt into the floor into a mass of trembling goo if we had to actually stand at a podium and talk into a microphone.

The above-mentioned people will benefit greatly from being able to watch from home.
It could be more exciting than watching Desperate Housewives, Survivor or even The Osbornes. It might rank right up there with the shopping channels, who knows - grandma might not buy so many fake-diamond rings, lamps and gravy boats any more!

To say that "people are apathetic" because they don't come to the meetings is just plain FALSE.

(in my opinion, of course)

Big hair

Not a whole lot to say right now...
Here is a picture of my hair right after i got it cut.
It's kind of wild-and-free on its own, so i don't bother much with it. Some days i don't even comb it. What a rebel.
I could hide stuff in it. Or put glasses on the back of my head and pretend to be Cousin It. It's good to take a picture right after a haircut so next time you can show them what you want.
Unless you hate it, then say it's what you don't want. Say that the last person who cut your hair was just trying to steal it to make a voodoo doll of you, and then start twitching and saying "ouch!".
