- Fizzy Thoughts: August 2006

Home sweet home

Monday, August 28, 2006

I'm starting to think we may stay in this house awhile longer. We passed the two year mark in April and didn't sell, and now the market in softening a bit. Although none of our moves were really planned... so I guess I can't say with absolute certainty that we're not going anywhere.

Anyhoo... that leads me up to my point. (Really, I have a point.) One of the things I dislike about this house is that it's so freakin' big. Yes, a house can be too big. Especially for two people. I am now on a quest to make the house a little more appealing, to me at least. So yesterday I went to World Market and bought a whole bunch of prints and frames. Today's project...put them together and hang 'em up. Maybe having more stuff on the walls will create the illusion of a cozier house.


Little Miss Sunshine

Sunday, August 27, 2006

This movie is hilarious! You absolutely have to see it. Yes, it's up there with Napolean Dynamite. Picture this:

filled with:

a foul mouthed, heroin snorting Grandpa, a dad who is a motivational speaker, a stressed out mom, a gay and suicidal uncle, the son who has taken a vow of silence and the daughter, who is a very unlikely beauty pageant contestant. They are driving from Arizona to California so Olive (the daughter) can compete in the Little Miss Sunshine pageant. The characters definately make the movie, and I'm still laughing when I think about them. So two thumbs up.

This is where the movie is playing...

When we were standing in line for tickets, some guy walked by and said (loudly), "Is this where the new strip club is opening?" And he had no shirt on. Not really sure what was up with that, but it struck me as weird.

Did you know the Palm used to be the Rainbow Theatre? It was on the side street by the library, across from the courthouse. It was even smaller than it is now. We would go there in high school to watch the arty, foreign films (extra credit for French class).

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
