I had a weird dream last night. I dreamt that I was dating one of the members of Aerosmith. Not Joe Perry, the only hot one, but this guy. Tom Hamilton is the bassist for Aerosmith and I'm sad that I know that, but I had an obsession in 7th grade. I suppose if I had to date one of them (other than Joe), it would be him, but he's not too far from being old enough to be my grandfather, so ew.
I watched Breakfast on Tiffany's on Saturday. Could that movie be any more racist? [/Chandler Bing] I'm not a huge fan of 60's movies. I think it's because the acting was different in some way, but I can't quite put my finger on it. I don't know that it's overacting, per se, but it's weird. I do have to say that George Peppard is hot though.
I hate Bath and Body Works. I love their stuff (even though it's obscenely overpriced) but the store is so tiny, the display tables are placed about an inch apart, the salespeople are annoying and pushy, and our B&BW is so hot! They have a million high-wattage lights that make the store 100 degrees. That plus the body heat of 50 people crammed into a 2-inch square equals a very unpleasant shopping experience. The only reason I went today was because when I was Christmas shopping they pressured me into spending $5 more to get a $10 gift card, which said I had a $0 balance when I went to check out which is odd considering I never used the damn thing. I thought it wouldn't be crowded since I went during church when it's usually just me and the other heathens. Of course the mall was packed. What's the meaning of Christmas again? Oh yeah, the birth of Jesus. I didn't read the part of the Bible where Jesus said to go to the mall and walk around like herds of cattle giving money to greedy corporations instead of going to church. On the way out I almost knocked a hideous candle holder onto the floor because only people who are 2 inches wide can easily walk through that damn store. I did break something the last time I was there; thank god they didn't make me buy it.
I hate the fact that so many McMansions are being built in York. Every empty parcel of land is being turned into a development of shoddily-built $400K homes. The nouveau riche can turn right around and go back to Maryland. How about building affordable homes for middle class people? I can't afford to buy a $400K home (and believe the hell out of me, if I could it wouldn't be one of those homes) and I'm not going to buy a $50K home in the ghetto of York. A rancher in my parents' neighborhood sold for almost $200K. It's a solidly-built home, but you've got to be kidding me with that price.
I just saw a commercial for Wal-Mart. I think the idea was that the woman bought a tray of deli meats but when she went to serve it she realized that all of her guests worked at a deli (they were all wearing aprons). Since Wal-Mart was so cheap she was able to afford backup. WTF?! I'm assuming that since these are guests in your home they're either friends or family. Doesn't this woman know where her friends and family work? I would think it would be a conversation started that they all work in delis and all show up to Christmas dinner in their uniforms. I try to be around my family as little as possible, but I know where they work.
News outlets are making a big deal over the police officer who told two black men that they would get out of a littering ticket if they rapped. According to the account I read, the men made up funny raps (the lyrics are in the article), were laughing the whole time, and the police officer joked around with them about football. The picture in the article I linked shows one man giving the officer five; both are smiling. Bad judgment? Yes. Racist? No. Then men who were pulled over weren't even the ones who complained! I say if those men have a problem with it then it's an issue; otherwise, it's not. If Officer Cletus told me to sing a country song to get out of the ticket I would have gladly done so. Way to make a mountain out of a molehill.
Speaking of my run-in with Officer Cletus, my speeding ticket was $131. A woman in York who was speeding in a school zone and hit a crossing guard, breaking both of her legs resulting in her inability to work (you sort of have to be able to stand to be a crossing guard) got a $120 ticket. Makes sense.
