grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

knit me more time...
Sunday, February 27, 2005

Tonight I went out in the snowiness to get some dinner- I didn't feel like cooking and I had eaten so much at IHOP earlier that I didn't feel hungry until around 7pm. So, as I drive down E. Washington behind a big SUV and I notice they have one of those TVs in the back seat. I pull up next to them a bit later and glance over to see what they are watching in the backseat. Now, you know all those commercials that advertise tv/dvd players in SUVs show families using them to shut their kids up by showing cartoons or some other silly kids movie. Well, that was what I fully expected to see. It looked like a couple (1 male, 1 female) in the front, so I just expected to see something like "Finding Nemo" on the screen. No. Not only was it not a children's movie. It was porn! I couldn't tell whether it was softcore porn or hardcore porn, but it was definitely porn. Sure, people could play anything in the back of their SUV, but porn? Driving down E. Washington? Not as surprising as the porn, was the christmas tree I saw on my way home. There is construction all over my part of E. Wash now, so I took a back way home through some neighborhoods. Well, I thought it was christmas all over again- the softly falling snow, and a BIG, LIT UP christmas tree, complete with STAR on top, right out in front of someone's home! I know people aren't always prompt about taking lights down at the end of the season, but they shamelessly had the thing lit! Maybe they just can't let go of christmas- maybe it is christmas year round in their home.
