it was kind of an uneventful day, at least by blogging standards. there were no fires, no asteroids, no bloodless coups, no lottery winnings, no nike endorsement either.
we did get a lot more nasty looks from our montanan neighbors…which…is simply mind-boggling to me. i can’t think of the last time i crushed a south carolinian’s rv windshield with a cinder block. can you?
kelly cataloged our activities today, so if you are interested then check out her blog. currently we’re chillaxin, watching a lame show on TLC, and figuring out our route to yellowstone.
now, i’ve never been to yellowstone and i have several expectations:
1) buffalos/bison/land orcas. a book that some friends let us borrow assured us that yellowstone often has what they call “buffalo jam,” namely, when a buffalo or many buffalos stand in the road…and stop traffic…and chew things slowly.
2) yellow stones. if there aren’t yellow stones i am going to have an angry blog.
QUICK ASIDE…the show we’re watching on TLC has the family sightseeing in FRESNO, CALIFORNIA…on the 180…taking pictures with oranges trees. and stealing oranges. currently they are literally screaming with delight at the sight of sequoia trees.
fun fact about the word ‘sequoia’…it has all the vowels. except Y. because Y isn’t a vowel. the show says they’re going to speak at a church…hopefully we’ll know it.
now back to our subject…
3) an endless cavalcade of chintzy gift shoppes filled with coasters, ash trays and out dated nature books.
and now back to our ASIDE….the reality family, which is about to speak at a church and has been saying really angry and inappropriate things to each other for the last 15 minutes, is in sequoia natl forest stealing pine cones and generally leaving the paths (despite the well-placed signs asking visitors to not do so) and causing a lot of expediated decay of the forest. lame. i want to report them. then again, since they have sextuplets no one will care. boo!
does anyone else miss the old itunes commercials now that the new ones are out? i do. i also miss the days when itunes didn’t update every other day and didn’t take over my pc resources whenever it is open.
see? not much happened today. at least, not much that kelly didn’t report on AND is blogworthy. see the bind we’re in? quite.
except this of course:
i have nothing to say…because i’m speechless.
so, TLC show is finally at the fresnan church they spoke at…which is one that the ole’ college hour worship team played at once. fun. i’ve been there. and so was a TLC camera crew. and some angry people who have their own show.
and, after seeing the church footage, i am (as usual) thoroughly grossed out at what was broadcast as ‘church.’
speaking of church, we missed our church today, and we missed it lots. a good reminder as to why we don’t want to travel lots.
OH! today we saw a bumper sticker that really made us reel with delight. we tried to get a picture, but we failed. it was on a montanan vehicle (of course) and read:
Blaming Guns For Killing People Is Like Blaming Spoons For Making Rosie O’Donnell Fat
ok…this post is a lot of fluff, so here comes the end.
