Well, we scrapped t he idea of going to Manhattan for Evil Dead the musical - we just don't have that much money! BUT, Wicked is coming to Baltimore YAY! We missed out on the Washington DC engagement last year - tickets were sold out in a day or two. Looks like tickets are just as hot this year. I was looking on Ticketmaster and seats available one minute were gone the next! So I panicked and got us two seats for Feb. 18th. =) It'll be a happy Valentine's outing for us I guess!

In my dream last night, Matt was leaving for work. After I heard the door open and close, I went downstairs and saw the backdoor was open. I looked out at our backyard, which was all grey/black and ominous and dripping with something black and oily, but I saw no one out there nor heard any sounds. After I closed the door, I noticed the door to the basement was open now. I walked down the steps, made it halfway down and WHAM I got hit in the face with a 2X4 or something. I fall down and it's still sitting on my face, obstructing my vision, but I hear a man say, "Bitch."
And that's it. =/

We went horseback riding yesterday afternoon - my third time, and Matt's first. It was soooo gorgeous out in the woods, just a perfect day. My horse was nice and obliging, but Matt's had a mind of it's own. Choosing it's own path and refusing to trot. Stubborn thing! Matt even suspects the thing was trying to brush him off with trees and branches. Hmmm... maybe! lol My rear end is a little sore from bouncing in the saddle, but I think it's something we will definitely do again... hopefully with a more agreeable horse for Matt. ^_^

The Washington Post's Mensa Invitational once again asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition. Here are this year's {2005} winners:

I did this a couple of years ago, and if you haven't already done so, you should sign up, too. Unless you love talking to telemarketers...

Got this email from my local comic book shop - and if anyone fits the bill, they should contact him at ShelmanR@aol.com - who knows, you might be on tv! =D

If anyone is interested, just let me know.


Casting for ABC TV's Wife Swap new prime time fall season is now under way, and we'd love to cast a family of comic book enthusiasts!

I’m hoping you will consider referring any families who share an active interest in comic books. All families featured on the show receive a $20,000 honorarium. Potential families can live anywhere in the continental United States and should consist of two parents who have at least one child, age 6 or older, living at home.

The premise of Wife Swap is that one parent from each household swaps places for a week to experience how another family lives. It is an incredible family opportunity to both learn and teach different family values. The New York Post says, "It should be called ‘Life Swap’ because it's not just the wives who learn something here. It's the families."

Thank you,

Meghan McGinley
Casting Associate Producer
ABC Television's "Wife Swap"/RDF Media

SAN JUAN BAUTISTA, Calif., Sept. 15 — As the number of cases of a virulent strain of E. coli linked to fresh prepackaged spinach grew to at least 94 in 20 states on Friday, federal health authorities identified an organic produce company here in California as a possible source of some of the tainted spinach.

By late Friday, 14 of the sickened people had grown gravely ill, the federal authorities said, and one had died, a 77-year-old woman in Wisconsin. Health officials said they were unable to determine if the outbreak was likely to spread further.

Because of recent abductions in daylight hours,refresh yourself of these things to do in an emergency situation...
This is for you, and for you to share with your wife, your children, everyone you know.

After reading these 9 crucial tips, forward them to someone you care about. It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do:
The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!
2. Learned this from a tourist guide in New Orleans .
If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you.... chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse.

3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won't see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON'T DO THIS!)
The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.
a. If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF, repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF! Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it. As soon as the car crashes bail out and run. It is better than having them find your body in a remote location.

5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor, and in the back seat
B..) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
C..) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!)

7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP. It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked "for help" into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.

9. Another Safety Point: Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird. The police told her "Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door." The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said, "We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door." He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby's cries outside their doors when they're home alone at night. Please pass this on and DO NOT open the door for a crying baby ---- This e-mail should probably be taken seriously because the Crying Baby theory was mentioned on America's Most Wanted this past Saturday when they profiled the serial killer in Louisiana .

I'd like you to forward this to all the women you know. It may save a life. A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle. I was going to send this to the ladies only, but guys, if you love your mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, etc., you may want to pass it onto them, as well. Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it's better to be safe than sorry.

Hmm not too bad last night... my feet are KILLIN' me *whimper* so no more double shifts for a while until I get used to being on my feet all day again. Actually, they let me go early, and I took my last tables at about 8pm, got outta there around 9:30 because I helped the waitress staying on for a bit - and I still made just shy of $100 in tips, so that makes the pain not-quite-so-bad. *thumbs up* I bet if I had stayed through the whole double shift I would have broken $150.

Anyway, I'm gunna try REAL HARD not to spend every last dime of it at the Baltimore Comic Con on Sunday. =9
