Another Nice Walk - oh! and Oppression

I took the same route this morning to work. I passed many of the same critters. This morning, I saw a very pretty kitty standing in a yard, he was a new kitty. Then my little friend came up to me again for pets. I worry about this little friend. He really is little. Like tiny skinny little. Yet, he's wearing a collar. A collar that fits his neck - so it's not like he's a stray that somehow has shrunk out of his collar. I wonder if he's sick? Or if he is Nicole Richie.

(you know that tomorrow I'm bringing a baggie full of cat food don't you?) I also saw the black and white cat from yesterday too (the one who did the tail grabbing).

I also saw that GIANT doggie. He was hanging over the back of the couch staring out the window again. And just like yesterday, he was watching for someone. He didn't even turn his head when I walked by. Unless of course he's not a real dog and it's a giant fake dog that sits there to discourage burglars. Oh, this time there were cartoons on the TV too. And as much as I love you guys - and I love the fact that my post about cats and dogs still inspired you to comment...I cannot take a picture of this dog inside his house. I have the feeling people might frown on that.

Also, as I walked, I passed the dry cleaners. It has been around forever, and it is in a fairly icky old building. In the morning, they leave one of the doors in the "warehouse" cracked and you can see inside (you know, if you're nosey like that. shuddup!) I feel like I'm looking into some sweat shop. I feel like I should see a hundred olive complected kids sewing swooshes on Nikes. It's so dark and dismal in there.

Which totally reminds me of something else I'd like your opinion on. (and I know you internets! You always have an opinion. So please DO share!) ABC Family is running a movie that they've run before...and every time I've seen the advertisement (both now and previously), I have been disturbed by the title. The Princess and the Barrio Boy. Um, so, yeah. I understand the concept - a life of privelege and a life of notsomuch privelege. The preps and the greasers. Whatever. But seriously, at what point did ABC FAMILY think that "Barrio Boy" was a nice phrase that they should perpetuate to children? Or to anyone? I mean, keep the concept, but at least get a new title. I can't really see anyone thinking it would be okay to name a movie "The Cheerleader and Those Ghetto Kids"

What do you think?

I can't believe that made it past the television moral police!! It was probably "The WASP and the Camel Jockey" originally and they had to tone it down to "The Princess and the Barrio Boy."

Needs a little more tinkering though. Way to go ABC.

Hey, "The Cheerleader and Those Ghetto Kids" is a good movie! I think it was released on the East Coast as "Bring it On," though.

Aimee said...

l sass - I'm so glad you got my reference. This is why I heart you. BAH!

nikki said...

The Cheerleader and Those Ghetto Kids!!!! HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHH!

Did you know that it hurts when you snort Diet Coke up your nose?

Marianne said...

You all slays me... Seriously. Here's my problem with "Bring It On" (and it totally has nothing to do with the socio-political implications or white liberal guilt): Gabrielle Union? Why - for the love of Pete - WHY is she playing a teenager in her 30s? Seriously, the girl is somewhere around my age, and I'm thinking older.

Apropos of nada, YAY! I'm glad you saw a black and white cat. It would go with my collection.

Ok, is it wrong that I laughed hysterically at "The Cheerleader and Those Ghetto Kids"??? Cuz I did, lol. Yeah, ummm, doesn't seem very "ABC Family" appropriate.

You realize that you are in the process of adopting a neighborhood of cats if you bring out the cat food, right? Ok, just checking. (I'd do the same thing too, btw).
