So, I'm standing there and a guy asks if I want my picture next to the RAGBRAI sign. I said "Sure". When he gave me my camera back, it was one of those "OH NO!!!!" moments.  I really have to lose weight.  

It's amazing that I can be a skinny person in my head, but not on the camera.

So, I left and got an ear of corn and a ribeye sandwich.  I'll worry about losing weight tomorrow

I have decided that I'm going to try to get in shape and ride at least one day next year.  I've always thought it would be cool. I mean thousands of people all put their lives on hold for a week to ride bikes and camp across the state of Iowa.  That's a pretty amazing thing when you think about it.

Cillaliz, you wouldn't recognize The Valley. It has changed so much.

I know. I didn't recognize it.  It was like the place I lived just doesn't exist anymore.  It sort of felt like some wierd time travel thing. I knew where I was all the time, but everything around me had changed

They are talking about starting four 10 hour work days now.  You have your choice as to if you want to stay with the same 8 hour/5 days or the 4/10.  I'm not sure which to pick.  I don't think I could do the 4/10 with Mom but it would sure make life nice.

Any doctor appointments could be made for Friday and I'd still have the weekend to do the chores and have a day to relax.

On the other hand, I don't like leaving Mom and the dogs alone for so many hours.  

My former supervisor worked four-10 hour days for almost the entire 30 years that she worked for the library and loved it.  I can barely manage to get to work on time at 10:00 a.m.!  If I were a morning person and could get out of my house on time, I'd love to work that schedule.

Well, not everything, but an awful lot.  I understand why people like it there, but I'm just not cut out to live in Phoenix.  I'm glad I did it and I think somewhere I still have my t-shirt with the devil sitting in hell  saying "It's as hot as Phoenix" from the day it was 123 degrees. But I really don't miss it.

Hmmm.. no "World According to Garp" or "Cider House Rules"?

der Brucer

I read "World According to Garp" and really liked it.  I also really liked the movie.  I remember that there actually were parts of each that I liked better than the other, but it's been such a long time since I've either read or watched it, I don't remember what they are. ::)

I loved "A Prayer for Owen Meany" . Simon Birch doesn't come close to capturing the book

Don't exaggerate -- it only got to 122F that day.    :o

It was 118F here yesterday.

Sometimes I wonder why I don't get out of here -- then I remember that I own a house and have a family here.

She is somewhere in Kansas as we speak. She just feels that after her "Career Exploration" class that she had nothing to contribute.

She will be attending a Family Reunion for the next few days, so perhaps she shall have some amusing stories. There should be plenty of material.

So how does this information get ON to IMDB??

I have resubmitted most of the information again. They review it and within 2-4 weeks they will post it. The original delay was that another website other than Kritzerland had to post the DVD for sale.

I went to work today and I was right...they didn't turn on the air conditioning. :P It certainly wasn't as hot as it was outside, but it would've been nice if it'd been cooler.  Anyway, I got all my work done.  I had to finish invoicing and assembling all of the invoices (that I had to do) for the business office so that they can pay the bills by the end of the month.  Until next month. ;)

I remembered (literally, just this afternoon) that I have a fan in my kitchen!  I never use it.  I turned it on and it circulates the air just enough that there's a slight breeze, even in my living room area.  It's certainly not air conditioning by any stretch of the imagination, but right now it's a nice relief from the very hot day.

I'm working on the Unseemly Trivia Contest...so far, I feel like I'm heading in the right direction, but then (as usual), dead end. :P

The other thing is that I may have never heard of any of these people.  I could see the name of an actor and not have any idea who he is or what his "career-defining role and the film he played it in" are. :-\
