DUI Check Point

It’s Friday and it’s also April fool’s day so you know people are going partying tonight to celebrate… er um… pranks?  We were on our way to Hometown Buffet tonight with a family friend of ours and we happened to get trapped in a DUI check point.

There were traffic cones in front of 2 of the neighborhoods so you couldn’t turn into them to get out of the trap, you were forced to go ahead.  It wasn’t clear that it was a DUI check point right away when there was opportunity to turn into the AM PM, Taco Bell parking lot or the freeway so from a distance it just looked like there was construction.

So there was just 1 lane and then all of a sudden it turns into 2 lanes, there is a police officer with a stop sign signaling for people to go into the right lane with another stop sign or allowing them to go on past the check point.  They were using the church parking lot as their mini police department and it was full of cars too.

We were lucky to have been let go and not be checked because that definitely would have ruined our night lol.  I guess they profiled us because Darrin didn’t look young and he was wearing a dress shirt and a tie.  I think if he were wearing a regular t-shirt like I was and if he were a bit disheveled he might have been chosen to get checked.

As we were passing we could see people in handcuffs, and that was only at 6:50pm.  Imagine what may have happened later tonight.  As we were coming home we saw that people were still being arrested and they were towing cars.

It’s funny, I have never in my life gone through a DUI check point, granted I don’t drive but still, even as a passenger I’ve never been through one.  In fact, this is the first time I’ve ever seen a DUI check point.  It was a shock to see there were so many people being stopped and how many cars that were sent to the church parking lot.  You know that if you got sent to the parking lot you are in trouble.

So is this a lesson for people?  Don’t drink and drive, and that’s not an April Fool’s joke either.

True Blood

Wow, this show is a roller coaster ride.  Every time I watch it I’m like whoa.

In season 1 when grams died I was in shock.  I just wasn’t expecting them to kill her off and so soon in the show too.  Then it just seemed like every episode I was left with whoa, that happened didn’t it?

Season 2 is the same.  It’s like they have this formula that just works and you can’t escape it.  It’s as though the creators of this show have glamoured me just like a vampire can glamor people.

Now Sookie has a new power with her hands but it has only worked on Mary Ann so far.  She didn’t even know she had this and perhaps it’s because she didn’t need to know she had it because it only works on 1 person which is the demon Mary Ann.  Actually she needs to know how to control it so it would’ve been good for her to know she had it so she could figure out how to use it.  Although if it only works on Mary Ann then she wouldn’t be able to practice but when she does need it I’m sure she will be able to figure it out on the spot.  Trial and error I guess.

Boy has Sookie missed some shit up in her crib while she was gone in Texas.  If she stayed she would’ve probably been killed because Mary Ann probably wouldn’t have been able to glamor her.

I would like to know where all the Bon Temps vampires are and why they didn’t contact their sheriff Eric to tell him that some shit’s goin’ down lol.  I know Bill isn’t the only one in Bon Temps.

Well, I love the show and I hate that they only have 12 episodes.  Too bad they don’t have a regular season at the same time as all the network channels do from September/October to May.  24 episodes per season would be awesome lol.  I think it would be neat to have a Halloween and Christmas episode don’t you?

A Spell For Chameleon – Part 2

Well I finally finished reading this book about an hour ago. I thought it was a very good book. Although I didn’t get the puns at first because I didn’t think of them as puns but more I was thinking of them as what they were. In the fantasy world that I live in, if they say it’s a Jelly tree then it has jelly inside of it. I don’t take it any other way. So it was a shock to me when I was told that “Jelly Tree” was a pun.

I lived in the world of EverQuest for 6 long years plus I’ve lived in the fantasy realm for a lot longer than that lol. Some people may laugh at that but it’s true. I’ve always been a fan of science fiction and fantasy. So it is no surprise to me when Piers Anthony writes about a blanket plant and I have to assume the leaves are blankets.

Besides all that, I am always making up puns whenever someone says something I come up with this off the wall joke usually including a pun. Nobody laughs, they usually moan.

I had this friend named Bob and he was like me too so he and I were constantly making each other laugh. I would say something and Darrin would say Mike that doesn’t make sense but you could hear Bob laughing in the background because Bob got it. And he was usually the only one. For the rest of the people I had to sit there explaining my joke before they called the men in white coats to take me away.

Getting back to the book though.  I thought it was a very good book.  Every chapter had its own little mini quest or adventure and I was glued to it whenever I read it.  My jaw had dropped to the ground in the last chapter when you know who became King.  Hey, I’m not going to spoil it for anyone lol.  Because I wasn’t expecting that to happen.  But I guess it all ended good and everyone lived happily ever after.  Right?  Well, that is until I start reading the next one.

To be continued in The Source of Magic…

Paranormal State

I was laying in bed watching tv and I had the History channel on most of the day watching these shows about the universe, about space and technology etc.  But that marathon ended and I didn’t want to watch what was on afterwards so I looked at the guide and found Paranormal State on A&E so I changed it to that.

I think there was maybe 2 hours that I saw, 4 episodes.  It was ok, a bit too much for me though.  I much prefer watching Ghost Hunters and GHI.  At one point in the basement of a church this guy was in the bathroom and all of a sudden the guy fell, like he was pushed I guess, I don’t know but you could see the camera falling with him.  He was so freaked out that he couldn’t even speak when they asked him if he’s ok.

I’ve been there I guess, you are just in shock, you can’t move, you can’t even speak, your brain is working overtime trying to figure out what the heck just happened to me that you can’t form the words.  You just need a minute or 2.  I probably would’ve been all HELLO!  HELLO!  CAN YOU HEAR ME?  LOL I’m a jerk.  But if that happened to me and I couldn’t speak I’d actually like someone to snap me out of it so I can tell them what happened.

I guess it’s a good show, I just prefer watching Ghost Hunters.

Craft-Lite Cutter

I bought this Craft-Lite Cutter from Publishers Clearing House some time in December. Yeah I know I could buy it at Walgreens and save money on shipping but I was trying to get good credit with PCH so hopefully some day I might win. I will be in shock if I ever do win.

But anyway, I ordered it in December with the mail in things they send me which by the way I stopped sending in because of that one thing that I never got. Well, I finally got it today in the mail. I do like it, it takes 3 AA batteries but since i have a solar charger it powers it up so no need for batteries. Sorry battery industry. I’m not going to waste good money buying batteries to cut paper lol. I’d rather the sun took care of that job for me.
