Hanging Ourselves

Are we hanging ourselves? I think we are. As a country I think that we are making it really hard on ourselves to be self sufficient if we import most of our goods and services from abroad.

I think retail outlets are too quick to exploit a country for their low wages and low cost of manufacturing goods without thinking of what it will do to our economy in the future. The people FOR going to 3rd World countries say that it is better for the US because we get low priced goods, thus keeping more money in our pocket, thus giving us the ability to spend more money, thus letting the Targets and Wal-Marts hire more people. I think this is flawed. Middle America is slowly being killed-a wound that drips making for a slow agonizing death-and small cities where a manufacturer was the biggest employer are being taken out of the map.

Also what is up with China? I just LOVE the hypocrisy of the United States. China is a Communist country and here we are allowing most of our manufacturing to be done there. They are spending billions of dollars (some of that money paid by American companies) on military training and weapons. Yesterday precisely, I heard on news radio that China has made an agreement with different countries where China lets them go in to manufacture in exchange for siding with them if China and US ever go into conflict. Australia is one of these countries. I say, What the FUCK?!!

High School

During our anniversary party on Friday we reminisced about the past. While thinking back we started talking about high school and my hatred of it. All of the sudden someone said that their 20th high school reunion was just around the corner. Wow, well, that person is obviously older than me, I thought.

While on the topic I shared the best 10th reunion memory ever. One of the football players, a guy a had a HUGE crush on, turned out to be gay. He told me that he had been gay since high school. I felt oh so happy, in my mind I could of actually had a chance if he had been straight! Yeah right, eventhough he was gay he kept a straight front by dating the cutest and most popular girls in school, which I wasn't a part of.

Anyway, at the party people started talking about their experiences and all of the sudden my sister says "your 20th is not that far off either". I was like "yes, it is". She looked at me like I was crazy and said "you graduated in 89". "Yeah, but my 20th reunion is so far away". Let me tell you guys that I am extremely bad at math and I always have to guesstimate and round around. So, I started counting with my fingers 90, 91, 92, 93 and then my toes 00, 01, 02, 03...GASP. My 20th high school reunion is in 4 years...what the frick!! That just ain't right.

After my intial shock and disbelief wore off some friends said that they had seen a lot of bald men and that everyone looked old at their 20th. My sister said "Chica still looks cute and I don't think she will look so bad in 4 years". Thanks sister. I guess we all live in denial. My sister needs to realize that she is only 10 months younger than me.

FYI - I graduated from Nimitz High School in Houston way, way back in 1989.

10 Years Ago Today...

Today I will marry
my friend, The one I Laugh
with, Live for, Dream with,

I hate cheesy crap like that at weddings, but guess what, when I was looking at my wedding album this morning I actually found a napkin that says that very same thing and I was the one that got the napkins engraved!!

Today the hubby and I are celebrating our 10th anniversary. We will celebrate by having a Cocktail Party at the Four Seasons in Downtown Houston and after that we are heading out to some of the bars.

10 years have sure flown by. Congrats Babe! and thanks for sticking with me.

Not Guilty???

All I can say is that the jury might not of seen all the evidence against Michael or must of been living under a rock since he turned freak in the late 80s.

I think it is funny how he now says that he is never going to invite children into his room...helllllllllo!

And You Guys Are Worried About Mexicans

"Being bizarre is not a reason to keep somebody out of this country..." said Bill Anthony, a spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Maybe strange people should be kept out speacially if they have a blood stained shirt and are carrying a knife, sword, and chain saw also stained with blood. Read the story here.

2 Hearts 1 Name

I am so completely tired of seeing star names, that are supposedly dating, morphed together. The whole "Bennifer" thing was cute, but now we have "Dashmi" for Demi and Ashton and "Brangelina" for Brad and Angelina, ok enough is enough!!

I am surprised that the Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes names have not been connected together somehow. I do thing the whole Tom/Katie thing is kinda weird. He just seems to be making such a big deal about it. He keeps yelling how much he loves her every where he goes. Oh, yeah, and what is up with that smile? The smile that melted hearts now looks creepy everytime he talks about her. While searching online I found this link. It pretty much sums up how I feel about the whole thing.
