Too Much Information

A few days ago, I went to my regular bus stop to catch the 7:40 bus. I waited and waited until 8:10 when the bus finally showed up. You can only imagine how pissed all the passengers were. Some started yelling at the poor bus driver. I just figured there was a lot of traffic and that's why he was 1/2 hour late. Silly me. What was I thinking? I found out I was wrong when the bus driver told us why he was late. He said to us that he had to drive very slowly because if he were to get into one more accident, he'll get fired. I kinda feel like maybe that's not something you should be sharing with your passengers. But that's just me....

The Little Mer-maideleh

I remember seeing The Little Mermaid when it came out back in 1989 and I remember liking it. Then I watched it on a flight either to or from Israel about 6 years ago and I remember thinking how this is the dumbest movie ever! How could a man fall in love with a fish?!? I hadn't watched it since.
Last week, my office got a shipment of printer cartridges and apparently we spend enough money that they sent us a free DVD of The Little Mermaid, which is still the dumbest movie ever (with the exception of Napolean Dynamite - Hi Yehuda!) but it's my roommate's favorite Disney movie. I said to her and a few other friends that it's the dumbest movie b/c she's a fish and he's a man and how unrealistic is that? But she brought up that a woman falling in love with a monster and them getting together on the advice of the monster's talking appliances or a plain guy turning into a prince, flying on a rug, and winning over a princess is not so realistic either. Whatever! Best Movies Ever! So we watched The Little Mermaid tonight. When the movie ended, I once again shouted "That is the dumbest movie ever! How could she love him?! She doesn't even know him! They only spent 3 days together! And he did all the talking! (Just like my last date!) The whole thing is ridiculous. So my roommate says "Maybe they're Jewish".
