Here Comes the Bride

No, not me.  SON is engaged and we are so happy for them.  Now I can be part of a wedding that I really want to go to!  I love the planning and dreaming but I'm not so hot on the expense.
Just the same, I can't wait...but I have to until October of 2015.  It will be hard but I'm pretty sure I can keep busy until then.

I've had a love of brides since I was a little tiny girl.  Even at 4 years old, I was hooked on brides.  Lace and taffeta and netting and flowers and sparkles, they were all for me.
I wonder what made a little girl fall in love with brides like that?  We didn't go to a wedding or anything like that.  I guess I was just born that way.

Still Just Sayin'

I hate getting yelled at!  Especially if I didn't do anything.
Yesterday, I was driving to Sis' house and I had to make a right at a light.
The woman who was waiting at the same light had a red light but she was turning right and when I turned on my signal, she glared at me and mouthed Well, it's about time.
I turned the signal on at least 500 feet from the street.  I wasn't speeding or going too slow.  I still don't know why she was so mad at me.  My signal isn't broken either. I checked.
I guess she was just a crabby old thing.

I guess I'm lucky it wasn't the Queen!

Yesterday I got hit in the head with a bird......no, really.

Thanks a lot, Robin.

Just Sayin' Again

I finally got to see Frozen.  I really liked it.  That's not what I want to talk about though.  At the end I saw that Disney had based this movie on The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen.  VERY loosely based.
From what I remember the Snow Queen stole children. Well, at least one boy and his close friend had to look for him.  It was quite an adventure, all wrapped up in lessons for the little ones.
The Snow Queen had the boy trapped and he had to spell Eternity in ice pieces in order to get away.  Of course, the friend saves the boy with her love and the Snow Queen isn't around so they go home and live happily ever after.
Do you know the real story of The Little Mermaid?  Equally charming.  She gets legs but her feet feel like daggers and she is in constant pain.  In spite of saying he loves her, the prince marries another  and the little mermaid goes back to the sea and becomes foam.
Now, here is what I think.  I think old Hans was clinically depressed.
Really.  I'm just sayin'.

Just Sayin'

I promise you no spoilers in this post unless you think the Cap walked through the whole movie and didn't fight anyone.

It occurred to me about two thirds of the way into the movie that all those bad guys shot at Captain America and their bullets bounced off his amazing shield.  Now don't get me wrong, I'm not for bad guys but I wonder why not one of them thought to shoot him in the legs.  They were sticking out there the whole time.  After ten of your bullets bounced off a shield, wouldn't you rethink your strategy? 
I know that  would be a boring movie but I'm just sayin'.
