Odds and Ends

Where have I been these last couple of weeks? Didn't mean to disappear on you! We went to the zoo on Sunday, so I'll post about that later on. Right now, I have to make a quick trip to town, but I'll leave you with a post I started a while back. Just a bunch of random things that I jotted down when they crossed my mind!

I recently heard that Tom Selleck was originally supposed to play Indiana Jones. I've been trying to imagine him as Indy. It just doesn't work.

I worked at Subway in high school and a little during college. As I was making myself a baked potato the other day, I realized that I wrap my potatoes in foil the same way I was taught to wrap sandwiches at Subway. In fact, I wrap all things with a cylinder shape the way I wrapped the Subway sandwiches!

While watching "Who Do You Think You Are?", I realized that I'm related to Sarah Jessica Parker. Our common relatives split in the 1600's, but still. Thanks to her, I found out that I am a descendant of the first Elwell in America, and one of my ancestors was one of the very few who actually survived the Salem Witch Trials!

We have a trip planned for August that I'm super excited about. We're going to my favorite place in the whole world, and we get to stay in my mom's old home! It kinda sucks that my grandpa's initials are no longer in the cement on the porch, the cement was replace several years ago. It'll be a bittersweet trip for us. Going there is always and adventure, and we'll get to see my great-aunt Irene, but the farm and Faye are both gone, now. We're also hoping to spend some time here, here, and here.

I should have included this on my list, but I just don't understand the whole Elimination Communication thing. I've been told that EC is done to 1) cut down on diaper use and 2) have the baby potty-trained sooner. I'm not sold on this. I know there are many people who will tell me different, but it's my opinion that it's the parents that are getting trained, not the babies. And, it just sounds messy and gross.

I believe that Caril Ann Fugate is just as guilty as Charles Starkweather, and she should stop whining about how hard her life is. She deserved the same fate as Charlie, but is now a free woman, so she should count her blessings. My step-grandpa was a Lancaster County Deputy when Caril and Charlie went on their killing spree, and sat next to Starkweather, with his gun pointed at Charlie the whole time, on the trip back from Wyoming.
