A few of my peeps have decided to give each other summer to do list! (Thanks Laura, I LOVE THIS!)
It's a list of things to do this summer. Fun things! Cheap things! Different things! Legal things! Moral things! Bring it on. This idea came at just the right time. I got news on Monday that I'll be unable to attend what was to be the Highlight of my summer. A Family Reunion in North Carolina, complete with dinner cruises and all sorts of other great things. *sigh* Although it wont be the same, the opportunity of doing some fun and different things is exciting.
I have a list of my own which I'll post, so that my friends doing the list for me won't duplicate.

Midnight drag races
Water tubing
Bonfire/Foil dinners in the canyon
write letters to my neices and nephews
Make and fly my own kite
Cosmic Bowling
Watch a movie on the side of building
have a cartoon & eat cold cereal party
Make a reusable grocery bag (paper destroys trees and plastic destroys the environment)
learn to do some kind of car maintenance.
Dance in the rain
have an all night movie marathon
Have a passionate kiss
find an old friend
learn a new song in sign language
catch a fish
sleep under the stars
go to the batting cages.
Share my favorite Jamba Juice
Glam out for no reason
Go to a dance club
shoot some hoops
make ice cream
bake pound cakes
get crafty
Go to the drive in ALOT!
find a new dish to cook
go to a grand opening
try the samples while grocery shopping. (that actually annoys me, but hey it's a new world)
Celebrate an usual holiday
Go to a county/ city or state fair.
Play video games ( I typically don't like them, but hey... it's a new world)
play with fireworks
take someone's kids for the day and play!
Take a 1 day road trip someplace unplanned and new
find 5 state historical markers and learn about them
Put bubble bath in a public fountain :) (that's legal, right?)

Got any other suggestions? Holla!

When Hell Freezes Over....

When hell freezes over clean the snow off your vehicles!!!!
No one should have to spend their morning commute to work behind the abominable snow truck: The back, top and sides of the car totally plastered with snow while creeping at a painfully slow pace of 25 miles an hour in a 35 mile an hour zone leaving a blinding stream of a blizzard behind them. It affects the vision of everyone else. I’ve had sheets of ice fly back on my window and car as well as zero visibility all because some idiot is too lazy to clean their car off.
You can’t see through the snow unless you have X-Ray vision. And if you DO have x-ray vision use it to melt snow off your car!
Why these people would want to increase the danger of driving in already hazardous conditions is beyond me. It is Lazy. It is dangerous. It is selfish and you could be responsible for damaging or taking a life. IT IS THAT SERIOUS!!!

Read the following stories:

I’m in favor of a bill that fines people who are this kind of lazy. I’m also in favor of insurance companies getting in on this action too.

Now we all know that last night it snows, so take these points from the sources at

“Now, if you haven't been smart enough to do so already, clean the snow off the rest of the car. Why? Because the rest of the snow will either (A) slide off the roof and cover your windshield as you're slowing down; or (B) fly off onto someone else's windshield and causing him or her to smash into you. That's not enough of a reason? Fine. Here's another: (C) it's the law in many states that your vehicle must be clear of snow and ice.

And my advice? Don't wait til Hell freezes over to clean the snow off your car!
