float_on_alright: i'm known as actually (grrr bones/urban)
I recently checked out a book called "Curly Girl" (because I am). It's changing the way that I look at my hair and my hair products. I've been looking for a gel, spray gel, hair spray, or mousse that does not have things like Parabens, sulfates, harsh alcohols, or Silicone (this is especially important, because while it makes your hair shiny initially it actually prevents your hair from getting moisture). In the course of examining all the different products, I saw propane listed as one of the ingredients in many of the mousses. Propane in my hair? PROPANE! 

Ach, I'm pretty sure someone tried to tell me this once, but I just wasn't ready to hear it. Sometimes I'm like that. The best I've found so far is probably the John Frieda "Root Awakening" Gel, not perfect, but it does a good job and it doesn't have silicone or PROPANE in it, which is as close to a "Win" as I'm probably going to get without spending $80 or making my own out of edible Aloe Vera gel.

 Or How I would drive if I learned merely from observing other drivers (Or people are crazy) 
  1. Yellow lights indicate that you should race against the change. You win so long as the light does not turn red before your car is under it.
  2. There are shades of red e.g. “But officer, it was only a little red! I had plenty of time." 
  3. On week nights, after 12am and before 630am, stop signs become optional.
  4. The speed limit may sound confusing but it is, in fact, the minimum speed at which the person directly behind you should be able to travel. This means you should be at least five over the “speed limit” in order to accommodate those behind you. If you see a procession in your rear view mirror, you are not driving fast enough, please adjust your speed or pull over so as they may pass you.
  5. Cops are uniformed versions of your elementary school teachers. They may give you a ticket or put you in time out if they feel you are breaking the rules. If they are very angry with you, they may send you to the principal’s office to be suspended; this is bad and can be quite expensive.
  6. Cars are like dogs, the acceptable "greeting" is your nose up the tail of the car in front of you. Tailgate as often as possible since it takes practice to really get the knack of this driving do.
  7. “Flipping the Bird” is the standard form of communication between drivers who are displeased with each other. The horn is for those who are either displeased with everyone on the road or are from the New York/Jersey area (note that “the finger” will likely accompany the use of the horn in these cases).
  8. Using your “blinker” is optional.
  9. Bikers and mopeds should be on sidewalks, it is important when you see them on the road to remind them why it is they should not be on “car turf”. Remember that this is war, showing mercy is not an option.
  10. Pedestrian cross walks:
    1. If you are the only car present when you approach the cross, play “chicken” with the pedestrians. Earn points for every person who doesn’t cross the road before you drive passed. 
    2. If you are not the only car present, pedestrian bowling is choice. The goal is to knock over more people than the other car. You earn extra points for runners and fast children.
Bonus note: Roundabouts are "Merry-Go-Rounds" for adults.
Other than rule #1 which is referenced in a movie or two, I believe, these are the product of my own creativity. Thanks.

The "Writer's Block" of the day is "You may have heard about the woman who married the Eiffel Tower. If you had to marry an object, what object would you choose, and why?"

I couldn't get any further than -

Someone married the Eiffel Tower??

I know this is a little off subject. I work in an After School program where I have a group of fifteen kids. One of my kids has the tendency to tell "stories" to impress the other boys. We'll call him Luke. One of my girls lives in the same neighborhood, we'll call her Jasmine.

Luke: This one time a plane crashed in my backyard!
Me: What?
Luke: Wide eyed "it did so" nodding.
Jasmine: It did not!
(Me in my head: Exactly what I was thinking/Good for you Jasmine)
Jasmine: It went down in Ryan's backyard. (Me: @_@) He's like five blocks from you. It was closer to me.

A plane. Seriously.
