In lighter news...
Coors light beer has declared itself,

The Official Beer For Drinking In The Shower!

I kid you not.
Just unpack that one for awhile...


How watered down is it already?

Usually drinking in the shower involves being curled a ball?


Update: my head still has a lump that was not there before the fall. :/

Still rocking to Aladin songs and still think Big B is cute and prefer him with white hair. Dont know what that says about me?

I think we shall soon get rid of the ' in contractions due to texting.

Coworkers were debating cats vs dogs. Coworker with cat his son 'gifted' to him, "i have a litter box. The cat still goes wherever it wants!" "There's no love! If I were to pass out that cat would eat my eyeballs in 10 minutes." "But it doesnt bark!"

Which all got me thinking, I say I prefer a cat because i dont have to walk it. But he's right, they go whereever anyway! And while the cat doesnt bark it still runs around the place and yowls at nothing at 1am. I'm not really saving anything...

EDit: Trees! Been meaning to mention that our trees look pretty darn healthy this year. /Very/ few tent caterpillers, like 3 nests maybe? Very little caterpillr sightings at all. I did squish a gypsy moth one and 2 white ones but that was months ago. The growth size of the leaves looks good. Little smaller towards the tops. Must be the wet spring? Wonder what the colors will be like? The dead trees are dead.
Gas is 2.79-2.86

Wishes and genies, boys and girls

Because I think about fairytales and I've been watching Aladin...
Someone online complained that in Aladin (2009) he just wants the girl. "What about world peace? What about ending world hunger? Way to waste your wishes!"
Hey! Aladin is a teenage boy? and one with a hard life? Back off with your "woke" self!

Which got me thinking about wishes. In fairytales the girl wishes for A Child. Snow White, Rupunzel, Thumbalina, Tom Thumb, etc etc.
Or she wants to marry a Prince. Sometimes she wants to fall in love with and /then/ marry the Prince.
But that's the range for girl wishes.

Boys want to BE a Prince, make their fortunes, find adventure, prove they are clever and brave, marry the beautiful princess and rule the kingdom. They get magic horses, magical musical instruments, magic weapons, magic animals...

Wth is that? Let's all stop with that sexist crap. Let's give the Prince a child and send him off to happily raise it. Let's give the girl a magic sword and let her clever her way through the dark woods and get the treasure. Let's give the girl what she really wishes for - Freedom

Sidenote: been meaning to post this for weeks. This seems like the time.

Basically, sure, showing girls good role models is a great idea but what message does it //really// send when we tell boys they cant look up to those girls too? "You cant have a Wonder Woman backpack - it's for girls!"
