I was watching the commentaries for the Looney Tunes Vol. 1 Disk 1, Bugs Bunny. The commentator said, “I love cartoon violence because it doesn’t really count. It’s a cartoon. It’s not like real violence like Iraq or murder…” The cartoon that was being commentated on was the 1952 “Rabbit Kin” where Bugs gives Pete several lumps on the head, then gives him too many lumps and then pounds the lumps back in, in which the commentator said, “That’s violent in and of itself…but I just love cartoon violence!”
So, what’s your opinion? Does cartoon violence count?
Hi all. Sorry that I haven’t published anything in the last couple of days. Things have been going pretty slow for me this week. I’ve got Chinese-Disease–that is–Dragon Ass. The mono is kicking my butt. Yesterday, I went over to my neighbor’s house and was chatting with them for about 20 minutes or so and that just plain wore me out. I then went to another neighbor’s house and we chatted for about 15 minutes. By the time I got home, I just about passed out on the couch. It’s just little things like that that have been killing me.
I went to the library on Monday to get some books on the D-Day invasion in Normandy, because I’m suppose to give a little lesson about it this weekend. I was at the library maybe 2 hours. I was so tired when I got back that I took a 3 hour nap and I still haven’t started my research.
Casey doesn’t really want to let me sleep in and he’s usually all over me by 8:30 in the morning. I was able to get him off of my face and he allowed me to sleep in a couple of hours, but by 10 he had enough and he let me know it.
I haven’t really spoken to Rob in a few days, though we did have a full 15 minute conversation yesterday and neither of us knew what to say. He’s still in the field and still sick. I told him that he needed to be the angry coach at half-time. He said he didn’t have the energy. I told him that he’s been more than patient with these guys and it’s about time to let them know that he means business. I know he’s not getting the proper rest, and with him being such a light sleeper, I know that if anyone is snoring in the tent, he isn’t sleeping. Of course, he snores (but he doesn’t believe me….I’m going to have to record it some night!) and when I move him over to make him stop he gets really upset with me!
Haha! Well, anyway, I guess I should probably go for now. I want to finish up the dishes and laundry. Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and I may or may not post tomorrow–depends on my mood, I guess and then Friday we are going to Normandy, France and I don’t know if we’ll have access to an internet connection there. We will most definitely have pictures from our trip and I should get those up on Tuesday at the latest!
Have a happy Valentine’s Day and Rob and I are sending hugs across the ocean!
