WTF are you talking about, I never said to lower or eliminate anything, thats all in your not so pretty little head.

No go back and think really really hard to come up with an acceptable retort, not this imaginary things you wish I had said stuff.

But I do agree that seatbelts should be optional for anyone over 18.

Nope, it's not like that at all. But you go ahead and keep making silly comparisons, it's amusing in a "bucket on a kid's head" kind of way.
Hundreds of thousands of people DWI every weekend and don't get in an accident, let's drop BAC limits.
Millions of people disobey the speed limit every day. Let's drop speed limits.
Millions of people drive every day without wearing a seatbelt and they don't get in an accident. Let's get rid of seatbelts.
Each of those arguments is just as silly as yours and equally invalid.

I think she made an okay Storm. But the comic book Storm was actually Egyptian. They should have used a Middle Eastern actress. Then again, comic book Wolverine was practically a midget. In Hollywood it's more about fame and pretty faces. Halley Berry was well known and popular. And the people probably wouldn't have gotten on board with a midget Wolverine. It's all about selling tickets.
Yeah, she has had some strange roles.....talking about short,wonder what's the deal with James Caan's son on Hawaii Five-O?....he must be all of 5'2"....lol....somebody said taller, but i smell a press agent....lol....

Eh, pointing out a liberal's hypocrisy is kinda like stealing candy from a baby. Too easy and therefor not much of a victory.

Wait... what? Methinks you have not done nearly enough reading. Let's start here:

1) The character is African and is considered a goddess in her homeland. She lived in Egypt until she was a teenager when she returned to Africa.
2) Halle Berry is not statuesque.
3) Halle Berry does not do quiet powerful strength and dignity. She does weak trembling quiet strength and scrappiness.
4) Wolverine is short, but he is not a midget. His portrayed height differential is not as great as Storm's.

That's a valid point. Vague memory says she's more from one of the middle countries though - i.e. deeply entrenched in what we think of as African Culture, not Egyptian culture which is largely Arabic.

Have you ever actually tried prying a piece of something sweet away from a baby?
The process leaves bruises ...on both parties. Just sayin'

Had to think about that.
Plotz is an active verb. Metaphorical collapse in aggravation, frustration or being really tired.

I could just plotz from trying to get Edog and Sam to play nice. I wouldn't plotz over them. Unless I just collapsed on the couch after a really long day , I wouldn't think someone would see me physically plotz.

There is a book by Leo Rosten called The Joys of Yiddish that was like the OED of Yiddish when I was growing up.

Yiddish is a combination of mostly German with Hebrew, some Polish and probably some of the Russian languages mixed in. You could probably take the German usage and feel confident you weren't mangling things too badly.

True story: I was at the Tower of London with my daughter. We ere surrounded by noting but German speaking tourists and I needed to ask where eh restaurants/food were. I dredged up my old Yiddish and it worked just fine. Either that or they thought I was threatening to cannibalize the kid. Either way it worked.

PE, I haven't seen many musicals -- fewer than 10, I'd guess -- but what always surprises me is there almost always is a dark undercurrent to them, even the ones that on the surface seem very happy and positive. Like, I read how "Showboat" is about racism. I've read that Carousel also has a dark theme to it. "South Pacific" also dealt with racism.

I think that's what makes them deeper and more interesting, but the commercials for them on TV never show the dark stuff.

Thanks Ang!

Weekend plans, everyone?

It's Sunfest weekend here ( www.sunfest.org ) and so far it's been Rainfest - yesterday I joked to a couple of people how I don't remember moving to Seattle. We have had dreary weather all week and there are still storms in the forecast but it's sunny right now, so I'll take it! This morning was the first time since Monday that it wasn't raining when I walked my dogs.

I have tickets and plans for tonight, tomorrow and Sunday. There's a chance I might run into Jasper and PMS, but I'm mentally prepared for it.
