last week i found out that christina ricci is going to play "trixie" in the new speed racer movie. hey, i know she is one hot babe but can she really fill trixie's shoes? i was thinking maybe winona ryder(maybe she's too old). speed racer was my all time favorite after school cartoon-all us kids would race home to see it. and i always got to play trixie when we played speed racer-mainly because i was the only girl in the neighborhood.(maybe that's why i'm a gurl!) anyway-i'm not too sure how i feel about this movie-classics like speed racer should just be left alone-hollywood does tend to ruin many a good thing!
well, ive been busy dyeing and spinning for my 2 upcoming local spring sales. here's some skeins drying in the bathroom-i need to get this done before my bathroom becomes the baby chick brooder. i just sold this hat(thanks for modeling shell!) to someone in ireland. this is so exciting for me to think someone in ireland is wearing one of my hats-a place i so terribly want to visit. i want to travel in one of those gypsy wagons and leave this fast pace life behind.
everyday when i take a peek at the news headlines(i don't know why i bother sometimes) i'm just so discusted with the state of affairs-the war, the campus shooting, and the effin genocide in africa-which is NOT in the headlines-gee-why isn't bush trying to help these folks if he thinks he so high and mighty for helping folks. maybe if they discovered oil in africa he would sing a different tune. well, the anger builds in me and i just don't know know what to do with all this energy-i've lived long enough to see the big boys have all the power and all the peaceful demonstrations in the world aint gonna change a damn thing-yes i vote- but does it do any good? cheating still prevails-call me cynic or pessimist-but i just can't help it. so i told hubby i needed to find a way to vent this rage-i decided on roller derby- yes- i know i'm older than the chicks that are skating today-but i have more years of rage built up then they do and i lived on roller skates as a kid-remember i was trixie.-WHEELS. well, last night hubby woke me to show me on the sacramento news there is now roller derby in sac town and they are always looking for new skaters-yeeha!!! i said-but he said look at them honey-they are all missing teeth- i responded-i will wear teeth guards like the kings do-my blood was flowing i was ready to go kick some ass-he told me-let's go watch first-then you can decide. hmmm-this could be fun!!!! wow, where did this spew come from- on a more peaceful note i will leave you with one of little son's photos.
