Any word on if Jeff's car will be sold as a toy?  Or whatever they call those cars in the stores.
I know its been awhile since you posted this -- but we've been looking around for SW cars for our son -- www.goracing.com has all of the SW cars -- including the one Gordon won with. 8)

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: Parallels between the PT and the OT
« on: August 20, 2005, 07:52 PM »
I, for one, always liked the similarities from Eps II and IV that occur at the Lars' Homestead.  When Luke returns to find his family slaughtered and when Anakin leaves to search for his mother the symbolisim of the same music and both of them standing in front of the same doorway.  I like the parallels it draws -- its the moment I always felt Luke turns a corner from a whiney kid and starts his journey towards becomming a man and a Jedi & the moment Anakin turns a corner from a whiney kid to becomming a man with a much darker persona.

Snakes are my absolute, #1 phobia. :(  I got physically ill when I saw it.  Since I was a child I've had nightmares about them.  I've made vacation plans based on snakes -- i.e. -- I never went to the family's cabin in the mountains nor went camping because of them.  I always supposed that's why I loved Ireland so much -- thanks St. Patrick for driving all of the snakes out.  We still haven't identified the snake -- but its dead.  Is there a snake mafia?  Can we leave its mutilated body outside as a warning for other snakes not to mess with our family? 8)

Thanks -- I put some weights on the bucket and explained to him about the dangers of this snake -- and that's when he came up with the idea of wanting to see if could move faster then the snake >:(  The main thing I am worried about is that it will escape before daddy can get home -- its in the mulch and I'm afraid it will squirm its way out :'(  We are definately staying inside -- even the dog.

After doing a little investigating online the damn thing looks more like an eastern diamondback rattlesnake :o -- can't say for sure 'cause I didn't spend too much time studying the thing.  We'll investigate further after its dead ;D

I came face to face with my biggest phobia today :o  I was headed out with the kids and I after I strapped them in their carseats I went to water a potted plant that was near my front door and when I lifted it up lo and behold there was a ******* baby coperhead under it.  I froze -- and thank God -- so did it.  I went and got a big paint bucket and put it over it and weighted it down until the hubby can come home and slay it.  I'm still sick to my stomach.  Everytime I turn around I think something is brushing against my leg.  The hardest part now I keeping my little boy from moving the bucket -- he wants to see the snake.  He also wants to see if he can move faster than the snake :'(  I AM FREAKING OUT!!  I'm considering packing up the kids and leaving until the hubby gets home :(  AHHHHHHHH!

Just wanted to tell all you NASCAR fans that we live about 1.5 miles from Lowes Motorspeedway in Concord, NC.  If you ever make it to the Coke 600 or the fall race let us know!  It's a great track and a great place to camp/tailgate.  My husband works for Penske Racing as a fabricator -- so by default I have to be a Ryan Newman/Rusty Wallace fan ::)  He used to change rear tires for Kurt Busch and then Mark Martin so he's been to all the tracks numerous times.  I've only made it to Charlotte, Myrtle Beach (Busch race), Loudon (to score the race), Rockingham and  Bristol -- all in the pits.  Bristol is by far the most exciting -- definately worth the trip if you can swing it.  If have friends who live in MD and WI who meet and camp at the Bristol night race every year.

We're up to $2.59 now -- a $.20 increase in 4 days.  I'm so glad I don't have to commute anymore and only have to run a few local errands.  My husband drives about 60 miles r/t to work on a full sized pickup :-[

Fav's:  Special K, Grape Nuts, Post Raisin Bran and Kashi Go Lean Crunch.  Also in the pantry: Cheerios (required if you have kids), Total Strawberry, Rice Crispies, Total, Shredded Wheat, Corn Flakes, Graham OH'S (I think that's what they're called), Tiger Power, some sort of organic honey flakes and whatever is on sale, (we're cereal freaks in our house -- my husband chases nearly every meal with a bowl of cereal).  Notice the lack of kids/sugary cereal -- the 3 year-old doesn't nead anymore help in the hyped-up energy department ;D
