"What's in Your Wallet?"

Exercise #16: "What's in Your Wallet?"
Make a list of the items in your wallet. Then, imagine that you were much wealthier than you are now. What might be in your wallet then? Make another list. Then, imagine that you were much poorer than you are now. Make that list.

In My Wallet Right Now:
  • debit card
  • Capital One credit card (emergencies only)
  • Suntrust credit card (emergencies only)
  • my shrink's business card
  • my insurance card
  • my ID
  • my college ID
  • 1 check from my church job
  • 1 check from my dog walking job
  • 1 check from my roommate (utilities)
  • some coins... I don't know how much.
My Richer Wallet List:
  • lots and lots and lots of money
  • my plastic surgeon's card
  • my attorney's card
  • my secretary's card
  • a lot of other cards that I can't think of right now
  • more money
  • lots of change
  • a black, metal credit card (you know, the American Express cards that have no limit but cost around $10,000/year to keep)
My Poorer Wallet List:
  • a debit card
  • a little bit of change
  • maybe a few dollar bills
  • receipts
5 Minutes Up...

In other news...

They're remaking The Secret of NIHM based off of Robert C. O'Brien's Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIHM. I am just... saddened. Why is Hollywood obsessed with fixing what's not broken? I mean, yes, it's an old movie. But age does not automatically mean obsolete. I would be up for a refurbishment of the old film (cleaning up the lines a bit and removing some of the markings that have been added due to misuse, etc), but an entirely new film? I mean, sure. It will bring more attention to the book and the orignal film, but I will be so very disappointed if they make it into some CGI crap along the same lines as the Alvin and the Chipmunks disaster (That's what they're in talks about doing.). It's just offensive, is what it is.

I can just imagine it. The script of the original movie (which, by the way, was nothing short of cinematic genius) is scrapped totally because it doesn't have enough pop culture or potty humor. So they essentially remake the entire script, and it doesn't even resemble the original plot line. It moves quickly so that today's overdiagnosed ADD youth can comfortably watch the film. God forbid they actually watch something that isn't full of explosions and poop jokes. Sure, the original was a bit dark. It most certainly stuck out as far as that goes at the time of its release (1982), but that's one of the things that made it so great. It wasn't this cutesy (well, not horribly so, anyway) animated drivel with no substance, and it was entertaining to boot.

Anyways... Hulu has The Secret of NIHM in its entirety at the following link:

Bad. Bad, bad, bad. I hope this idea goes down in flames without any sort of success in creation. Please, God, grant this request.

Peace and see you tomorrow!

Ah, yellow. One of my least favorite colors. I mean, it's nice and all, but there are so many versions of this color that are simply eye-raping. Anyways, on with the list.

"Purple Things"

Exercise #28: "Purple Things"
What things are purple? Make a list.
EggplantsOne-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater (see below)Bruises (sometimes)a REALLY beautiful sunsetElizabeth Taylor's eyes (does violet count?)Barney (I love you, you love me...)GrapesLavendarOrchidsAmethystCabbage (sometimes)Lots of different birdsPlumsVioletsOnionsROYGBIVThat's all I can think of. You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:



Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…
