I'm proud to be an American

Let's face it, since September 11th things have changed in the United States. We view things much differently now, or at least I do. We all need to wake up and realize that one of these days something could happen in our own back yard. The US Government allowed people into our country assuming they would be going to school in Montana. What happened? They split up and were found all around the United States. 3 of these so called students ended up right here in Des Moines, IA. Wake up people!! Do you really think that just because we live in the United States, that suicide bombers couldn't show up on our streets? Why did these men scatter all over the country? And how come the US Government never gives us the straight story? I really doubt these guys were like..."Oh, my life long dream has always been to visit Des Moines, IA." Come on, get real!! Seriously my fellow Americans....WAKE UP and stop being so damn liberal about everything. Stop worrying about who we might offend because when they are walking into the local Starbucks with an explosive device strapped to themselves, it will be far to late.

Dilana what the heck girl??

Ok...I try to not get all caught up in reality TV but I'm sooooooooo into RockStar Supernova. Gilby Clarke and Dave Navarro...need I say more? NO! Well anyway, I totally dig Dilana. She's a total performer and could front the band but she had to go and get bitchy and cocky. Sad but true, when you are a strong female you really have to watch how you come across to people. Your strong will can be construed as being an out and out BITCH! So anyway...I hope Dilana didn't hurt her chance to front Supernova. I totally think she could do it! She has my vote...GO DILANA!!

Save a Hog RIDE a Biker!

I thought this cartoon was great. There are always all these sexy pictures of chicks on bikes out there and so I thought I'd objectify men a little bit. HA HA!!! Posted by Picasa

Thirty Two Flavors Lyrics -- Ani DiFranco

thirty two flavors

squint your eyes and look closer
i'm not between you and your ambition
i am a poster girl with no poster
i am thirty-two flavors and then some
and i'm beyond your peripheral vision
so you might want to turn your head
cause someday you're going to get hungry
and eat most of the words you just said

both my parents taught me about good will
and i have done well by their names
just the kindness i've lavished on strangers
is more than i can explain
still there's many who've turned out their porch lights
just so i would think they were not home
and hid in the dark of their windows
till i'd passed and left them alone

and god help you if you are an ugly girl
course too pretty is also your doom
cause everyone harbors a secret hatred
for the prettiest girl in the room
and god help you if you are a phoenix
and you dare to rise up from the ash
a thousand eyes will smolder with jealousy
while you are just flying past

i'm not trying to give my life meaning
by demeaning you
and i would like to state for the record
i did everything that i could do
i'm not saying that i'm a saint
i just don't want to live that way
no, i will never be a saint
but i will always say

squint your eyes and look closer
i'm not between you and your ambition
i am a poster girl with no poster
i am thirty-two flavors and then some
and i'm beyond your peripheral vision
so you might want to turn your head
cause someday you might find you're starving
and eating all of the words you said

Why am I torturing myself?

If you are a biker you know that August is the month for the annual pilgrimage to Sturgis, SD. So as you can tell by the date of this blog post I'm here in Des Moines, IA and not in Sturgis, SD. I keep continually torturing myself by going to to watch the crowds on the webcam. Oh how I wish I were there right now. Ok...enough blogging, I need to keep hitting refresh so I can see the next group of people walk by the cam. Next year it will be me walking by that cam and waving "hi" to another poor soul that's not able to make it. But for now I'm that poor soul, dreaming of Sturgis and all its fun and scenic roads for riding.

I want a prize dammit! I'm driving down NW 62nd, which is 25 mph. Along the side of the road is one of those machines that tells you how fast you are going. Everytime I drive by it I think to myself...I was right on 25 mph. I should get a prize dammit!!! Or hey, if you are driving faster than the speed limit the lights start flashing on it...shouldn't you get a prize then? I mean you made the lights flash. I'm not really going anywhere with this, I just find those machines kind of funny. I guess they must stop people from speeding because they keep using them. I just think if you hit 25 or make the lights flash you should get a prize of some sort...and I don't mean a ticket either. :)
