The future

I was just in a parking lot and parked next to a private security patrol car. It started me thinking about the layoff's happening across the bay area and probably around the country.

Firefighters laid off in San Jose.

Police officers in Oakland laid off - Oakland for Christ's sake.

Police departments for entire towns are being disbanded and the towns relying on far away sheriff's departments for help.

Towns going bankrupt.

Is the future that we all (those that can afford it) live in guarded communities that have their own private police and fire departments? Will there be entire towns, jobs, grocery stores, schools, churches all behind tall walls that block out the rest of the world and are patrolled by armed guards? Sort of like a walled medieval city, protected from the outside world until the outside world decides it wants what is inside?

Will outside these small walled oasis be the apocalyptic world of mad max movies?

The thoughts do not give me warm fuzzies. How about you?

So in order to save money Texas A&M will no longer supply the dorms with toilet paper.

The city of Newark, New Jersey will also no longer be supplying tp in public buildings.

Does this include the airport?

Yuck - keep this in mind when shaking hands.

The one piece thing

Everything old becomes new again.

It seems that the one piece thing is back in style. You know what I mean. It is a one piece item of clothing that women wear. It is gathered around the waist and it has many different options.

I saw it with shorts, capris and long pants.

I saw it with sleeves, no sleeves, one sleeve, spaghetti straps and no straps at all. That last one was fighting gravity all the way, I was constantly wondering how they stayed up.

I just don't understand, if something in fashion was ugly and didn't really work out the first time around who brings it back?

Does some young girl find a little flowered, one sleeve, short thingy in her mothers closet and just think it is the best thing ever and starts wearing it and other girls see it and so on and so on?

Another thing, if you are going to wear something that shows your bra - the straps, the back, part of the front -WEAR A NICE LOOKING BRA. Do not wear the bra you have had for two years and has been washed 50 times, has lost all the color, the elastic is shot and the lace is ripped.

For peets sake girls.

Home again

Why oh why do airports have the most uncomfortable seats around?

I mean sometimes you spend a lot of time in airports and you would think they would have comfortable seats.

If I ruled the world!!!!

As you may have guessed, I am on the way home from Paris. I am sitting in the Charlotte airport waiting for my flight in about three hours. I successfully made the pass of the nephew to his father, I think he had a good time. I know I did and I will be posting pictures and stories later.

You know you are friends....

You know you are friends forever when you best friend comes to visit with her family and on the last day it is just you and her.

You are going to go do a little shopping, have lunch, just have some fun. The two of you.

You both get up and take showers and get dressed and come out into the dining room and look at each other and laugh because you are wearing the same exact shirt.
