Misc Rant… posted by Jilly

I have come to the realization that I hate most bumper stickers.

I hate the need people seem to have to express themselves on expensive cars (all cars are expensive whether it be a viper (probably not bumper sticker ridden) or an $800 rabbit)….they are literally vandalizing their own property to get out their ideas which let’s face it are probably ill-informed.

I especially hate people that cover the whole back of their car with bumper stickers. Today I saw one that was decked out in a myriad of “hey I’m a liberal” messages. Who cares? I’m Japanese! I’m a folk singer! I love origami! Why do I have to learn about you on the expressway? And as for their agenda and getting the word out; these folks remind me of the preachy God types -the people who shout the loudest about their beliefs rarely follow the path they are trying to lead everyone down.

On an up-note – I did see one I liked on the polluted car – it said, “I’m still angry with Yoko”….that’s just good sense…

We all play UNO -some more competively than others (you know who I mean -winter of 2001 in Morgantown, the color was made green intentionally). Question (and I have refrained from looking it up so that discussion would ensue)… If you have laid a wild w/ a draw four, were challenged and found to infact have the color being played-what happens next? Do you pick up four cards or six? Does the color change per your request even though you were “cheating”, or does it stay the same?

This morning my old beaten up hair dryer died. It didn’t truly die even -it just started making a funny noise and blew some smoke. It was still running but I was afraid it would catch fire. I had that hair dryer for at least 7 years -maybe as many as 10 -it just wouldn’t die. I dropped it a thousand times -calling it everything but a hairdryer. I broke off the button that retraced the cord and it was still going strong….goodbye conair 750 – I won’t forget you.
