I'm a freak

Some rambling thoughts this morning:

I am still sad about steve irwin and it doesn't make sense (seriously, it's not like freaking eddie vedder [who I dated in the early 90's {in my mind}] died.) I read that the video of him dying shows him pulling the barb out of his chest and there is that moment on his face where he knew that this was a fatal wound. Horrible. People are debating on whether to show this footage or not. Morbid, I sincerely hope no one gets their hands on that footage who would use it for "entertianment" value.

I'm supposed to meet with the Girl Scout leader lady to get information on becoming a Daisy Leader. I actually called about getting my daughter involved and somehow got myself suckered into volunteering. What I said was "I might be interested in getting more information on being a Daisy troop leader." And what the lady said back to me was "great, pick a day you want to have your meetings and I'll make up some flyers." Sooooo, I think I'm a Daisy Scout leader. I have NO idea what that involves or what my responsibilites are. I guess I'll "wing it."

I am still washing tie dyes. MonkeyBrigade dyed them all day Sunday and it usually takes about four days to get them all washed. We can only was about 6 items at a time or they bleed into the whites of the piece we are dying. The text book covers are turning out really cool. Also, we did some cute little halter dresses that look like watermelons. I need to paint on the seeds.

I skipped my Weight Watchers weigh in because I'm premenstrual. I should have lost weight because I did really good at counting my points last week. But no....I stayed the same because my body has other plans. Come to think of it...maybe my premenstrual hormones are what are making me so emotional about my best friend Steve Irwin dying.

I am so frustrated that blogger keeps eating my comments. Let me try this again...

It would make me very angry if they made that video public. There is no reason that the public should have access to a video of the man dying. It would be disrespectful to his memory and his family to release that. If people are so fascinated by him, they can honor his memory by watching his show or visiting his zoo or donating to a cause he cared about.

PMS is a b*tch, no matter what! Let go of the things you have no control over...
