Now, if you're following Meli then you would know that she got the Twilight 'Saga' for Christmas courtesy of moi. She doesn't like it. I don't think she's finished the series, though, so lets give her some time. Here's my take on the 'Saga'. I don't like it either. I think it's stupid. To expose adolescent teenage girls to this rubbish is just foolish. They cannot run around with these ideas in their heads. I will further explain my points with references to the books.
In case you don't know about this (i.e living under a rock or in a cave, or just oblivious to everything around you), the jist of the books are this mortal teenager, Isabella Swam, aka Bella, moves to Forks (a place that's gloomy with little sunshine for the whole year....think London, England in the States) to live with her father so that her mother can travel with her new husband. There, she falls in love with a vampire named Edward Cullen. Meh, I've read this kind of crap before w/ Anne Rice. She never got this kind of publicity though. Maybe this author realised that kids/teenagers are the target audience if you want to make money (think, Wiggles, N*Sync, etc). Whatever, I fell for it.
Here are my issues with the books (I've managed to read 2 1/2 books, so far, I honestly don't know if I can finish it though....it's hurting my head. The half was because i've been skimming through Eclipse. I can't stand to read about how much Bella nad Edward love each other. Yechhh.) So, apprently this Bella has not had a boyfriend before. So when the hottest guy in the school starts paying attention to you, you feel good, right? She even says, that he's God like in how he looks. She was obviously drawn to him for that. And the fact that everyone in school dubs the Cullens as mysterious, that must peak Bella's interest some more. Apprently, there's nothing special about the way that she looks, yet all the boys in her new school are falling over themselves trying to get to her. Ok, I understand from the book that they come from a small town, and new people don't show up often, so that could be it.
And I was reading Stephanie Meyers website, and she had a 5th book coming out, called Midnight Sun, but apparently someone posted it on the web, and now she's pissed off and might not finish it. It was just re-telling Twilight anyway, but from Edwards point of view. However, in that book, apprently Alice (his "sister" who can see into the future) predicts that Edward will fall in love with Bella. So here's my thing, if someone whom you trust and respect, tell you that you will fall in love witht his person, wouldn't try to? You know, you would see why and how and just be more interested than if you just knew her as some girl. In the beginning of the book, it was her smell that drove him insane. It was so sweet that he couldn't resist. Hell, he should've just killed her then. But that's just me.
My other thing, is that he's obsessive. How can anyone in their right mind think that it's romantic to stalk someone when they sleep and follow them around afraid to leave them alone?!?!?! Hello, that should be a sign to run away.....run away fast!!!! I think it was stupid, but it's like crack to me. I can't get enough (except for the Bella and Edward "I love you, I need you, my life sucks w/o you" crap). I'm even going so far as to try to go watch the movie. I know, it's weirding me out too.
Then he decides to break up with her because it's much too dangerous for her to be around vampires. So he leaves her all broken like and sad. Ok, at 17, we've all experienced bad break ups where we don't really want to do anything. But we've all gotten over them. I think she would have too. She had Jacob.
I don't think this was a love story. It's foolish and i'm upset that little kids are giving it such rave reviews. Please children, learn to think that you can do anything you want and you shouldn't have to rely on someone else to make you happy. It's nice to be in love, but not infatuated or in lust.
There's so much more I hate about this series, but I think i've rambled enough. You should be able to understand my dislike by now.

Step back gonna come at ya fast, I'm driving out of control, and getting ready to crash. Won't stop shaking up what I can, I serve it up in a shot, So suck it down like a man. So baby yes I know what I am, and no I don't give a damn, and you'll be loving it. Some days I'm a super bitch, Up to my old tricks. But it won't last forever. Next day I'm your super girl, Out to save the world. And it keeps gettin' better. Kiss kiss gonna tell you right now, I'll make it sweet on the lips as it can knock you out. Shut up I don't care what you say, Cuz when we both in the ring , you're gonna like it my way. Yeah baby there's a villain in me so sexy sour and sweet. And you'll be loving it. In the blink of an eye, In the speed of the light. I'll hold the universe up, And make your planets collide. When I strap on my boots, and I slip on my suit, You see the vixen in me becomes an angel for you.
I think they need something to look forward, and I want to expose them to everything else going on in the world too, just so that they don't get clouded and they know that everything is not alright. However, I'm cynical and for me to try to explain the issues happening over the rest of the world, would be just as bad (if not worst) than putting them in fron of the t.v to watch CNN....wait, no, Fox News!! But everything isn't ok in the world. And it eats at me. Why should we be celebrating when people all over the world are dying. We are trivial things, like, for instance, songs about shoes for a mother making people cry, when people aren't even getting food!!! I know, tragedy is a tragedy no matter who dies or is sick or is hurt, but people don't look at it that way. That's the way it should be viewed at though!!!! There's a saying that goes, 'One person alone cannot do everything, but Everyone can do something' (this is the hypricritical part of me being exposed, b/c I do believe that I say it on the side of a Church).
Also, what the hell is with this Christmas Spirit?!?!? You can only be good to someone and go out of your way to do something nice once a year?!?!?!? Don't even get me started. The world would be a better place if we could apply these thoughts and actions year round.
I'm frustrated that people are so stupid and noone is really making a change. Maybe they're like me, and not really sure of where to start (albeit, I have done my share, and i'm still trying to do more), or maybe they're just ignorant and they're fine with that fact (again, that could be applied to be on some other issues ***hyprocritical moment....again), but we really need to do something.
No matter how bad your situation is, please remember that there is always at least someone worse off.

I thought I had beaten the rush by starting my shopping in October (albeit, the end of October, but nonethless). So here it is, less than a wekk until Christmas, I still have shopping to do. Not only have I not finished my shopping, I don't think there is anyone out there who I have finished my shopping for. You would think that I at least finished baby's gifts, but everywjere I go, I find things to buy her. So, no. Same can be said for Marky. I'm only getting my dad money, but I have yet to pull that out of the bank (lord hoping that I still have "X" amount TO pull out by then). My moms got her stuff, plus money too, same deal as my dad. But since her birthday she's been asking for a laptop. Trying to see how I can swing that too, maybe waiting for Boxing Day. I hope I have enough money. Meli's fairly simple, but expensive. HOW THE HELL DO I AFFORD THAT?!?! But i think she would really enjoy it. Meli's supposed to buy John's today b/c she has my debit, and yesterday I saw it after I finished paying for my stuff, but by then the line up had grown extensively. Then that's it. Oh, but wait, I have Tina's bday and Christmas present still.....

But I have another theory as to why I got this way tooo strict penalty. Remember, this guy, well to elobaorate more (for you Nikki) we were supposed to go for coffee, I forget the exact day, but lets just say here on a Thursday. Well, we agreed to meet at a coffee house maybe 10 minutes away from my house and from where I got my ticket. He was supposed to call when he got off work at 6pm. Well, I rec'd no phone on the agreed day of meeting. Well, whatever, I don't care if you are a cop or not, I don't deal w/ bullshit. Unless you're Officer Looking-Good-but-probably-married-and-somewhat-psycho-but-nonetheless-drop-dead-gorgeous. But then, I get a phone call about a month and a half later w/a message saying that he was away on training w/o access to his phone, which he lost, but through "some miracle of technology" he was able to find it. More bullshit. Whatever, no returned phone call made. I think that maybe he pulled some strings and he's teaching my a lesson. I know, i'm thinking very highly of myself, that he would go through all this trouble just b/c I didn't return his phone call, but meh....it's justa theory. So, sorry guys, won't be seeing you're unless I can walk to your place or you're willing to pick me up.

I think I have been better than recent years, and I feel that I do not deserve a lump of coal. Heck, I've been so good, I require an aged perfectly lump of coal, preferably in pink. In case you don't get it John (b/c I know Meli does) diamonds are derived from coals....
Anyways, I've made up a list of things that I feel would best aid you in your decisions. That list includes (but does is not limited to):
1) World Peace - I think that should be mandatory as the first thing on everyones list.
2) A condo - Preferably 2 bedrooms w/ a den. Mortgage free, as I can only (barely) afford the maintenance fee on most buildings.
3) A pet - something feline or canine, leaning more so towards feline. Less maintenance.
4) Maybe a new car - A Volvo S40 is nice.....rreeeaaaalllll nice.
5) A great genie, who accepts that a girl can wish for more than three wishes.
6) World Peace - I think that should be mandatory as the last thing on everyones list.

So there was alot of coverage of the ceremonies going on and Baby was asking soooo many questions about it. She also had an assembly at school. They were accepting donations for poppies, but I didn't know, and she let me know that I should've sent her with money so she could get one.
But anyways, straying again.
Babe: What's rememberance day?
Me: A day to remember all the people that fought for us
Babe: I don't remember anyone that fought for us
Me: It was a long time ago, before you were born.
*thinks for a while*
Why did they fight?
Me: Good question. I don't know
Babe: No really, why were they fighting??
Me: Because there were bad people who believed in bad things
Babe: Oh *thinks again* like the devil
(This was a conversation we had a while ago about religion)
Me: Not really. They believed what they were doing was correct, but they weren't....and it's complicated.
Babe: Explain it to me, i'll understand i promise.
Me: They fight so that we can live like this, where we eat what we want, and watch what we want and no one can tell us what to do. So we live in a 'free' world.
Babe: Oh. So why do there heart breaks?
Babe: Why do they use guns to make people's hearts break.
*how do i explain this*
Me: Call auntie Mary. She'll explain.
My sister is the bomb at explaing this kind of stuff. She couldn't do it either.
The most touching part of this whole conversation ( and there were alot) was that my dad was listening to the whole thing and putting in his cents every now and then. Then baby turns to him and says "You better not go fight in nay war, because I would be so sad if your heart breaks!!"
I think that brought tears to my dads eyes. It did to mine.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

A kindergarten class had a homework assignment to find out something 'exciting'and relate it to the class the next day.
When the time came to present what they'd found, the first little boy the teacher called on walked upto the front of the class, and with a piece of chalk, made a small white dot on the blackboard and sat back down.
Puzzled, the teacher asked him what it was. 'It's a period,' he replied.
'I can see that,' said the teacher, 'but what is so 'exciting' about a period?'
'Darned if I know,'he said, 'but this morning my sister was missing one.
Daddy had a heart attack
& the boy next door joined the Navy

Barack Obama is about. I read this and let me tell you, he is pretty damn good on paper. But isn't that what all politicians are supposed to be like?? I mean, if they have anything bad on their platform, no one's going to vote for them, right??
So I checked out John McCain. He is nowhere near as eloquent or convincing (conniving???) as Obama.
Here's my take, and please excuse my ignorance as I do not follow politics. In fact, as more people began to support Obama, I actually started to go toward McCain's side. It's in my personality. I tend to root for the bad guy. I stray from the "fan favourite". I always think that there has to be a strong reason as to why a person would want to go against society and create this tarnished persona where they are willing to take butt of the deal. It takes guts to not try to be the good guy in the situation. They might not always be doing the right thing at the moment, but they believe that they are working for the better. "The end result always justifies the means". As long as it's not selfish, i'm actually rooting for them. Maybe I'm tainted......meh. My blog, my opinion. But anyways, i'm straying.
So, yea, Barack Obama is saying what the people want to hear, and John McCain believes that George Bush's policy is ok, and he is basically going to follow it. Ok, Americans, who might be reading my blog, (although i'm pretty sure no one reads my blog except for John and Meli) Again, I apologise for my ignorance. But you guys do get a bad rep. And I believe it. I believe that most Americans out there are as dim witted and easily influenced and manipulated as they are portrayed to be. So, when everyone started to jump on Barck's bandwagon, I was surprised. Firstly, I thought he got so much support because he was black. Alot of the support he was getting was because he would be the first black president. I mean woo-hoo, that would be great, but how many of them actually know what he stands for. But again, whatever, my ignorance, my blog, my opinion. Then because he was getting alot of support because of his un-George Bush way of thinking. So, people were looking for a way out of George Bush's hold. But with survey's done prior to this election, I think that there was little percentage difference with American's and opinions as to how George Bush was doing. I mean, the last election w/ that other non-George Bush guy, didn't he promise to get the troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, albeit, he did have alot of the same policies of George Bush, I think that was one of the different points. So, wouldn't it make more sense to have the greater evil out of office and take the lesser evil? But whatever, I'm sure American's took more consideration into their decisions.
Ok, again straying. So, I believe that once people started jumping on Barack's bandwagon, people were blindly influenced again and started jumping on it too, simple because it was anti-George Bush. Hell, that would have been my decision from the beginning. Anything anti-Goerge Bush is a good enough reason to change a vote.
My main point, is just to know, if all these people who voted for Barack Obama, actually know 3 valid points on his platform. Another thing, how does he plan to execute them? Educate my ignorant self please.
FYI......if I were an American I would have voted for Barack. Simply because I have no idea why McCain would choose Palin as a running mate. She's crazy.

That rant was only half of my point. Yesterday, Canada had an election. Only 58% of eligible voters went out to vote. When that point was brought up to some of my co-workers they responded by saying "Well, look at the options, who would want to vote for those guys". WTF?!?!?!?! We get the right to free vote! We get some choice of who we want. We can make mother frickin' difference!! And your bloody response is "look at our options". No, if you really want to look at your options, look at Africa, where they've been under the rule a monster for the last 10 years and they can't even nominate other candidates! Look at twhen they goto the polls, they are fearful for their lives that, b/c voters are being shot, stabbed, killed even for their vote. They know their vote makes a difference, and they are willing to put their lives on the line for that difference. Some Canadians can't even get off the lazy asses to go to the polls that are open until 9:30 pm, to accomodate everyone, to make a change.
You people should be ashamed of yourselves. And I for sure do not want to hear any of you ingrates complaining about the gov't. Go f*ck urselves before you even think about it.

Let me just tell you, if you know anything about me (and you should by now), you know that I have a weakness for men in uniform. Not like Tim Hortons or Micke Dees, but someone w/ authority. Me likes the powerful men dem.
So, I smiled back at the bastard. Plus, he was nice enough to point out that my sticker was wrong. Prick. Go catch a crook. He then decides to come over and talk to me. Hello Officer........
Basically, he tries to pick me up. Can't say no to a cop, so I gave him my number. We were supposed to go out for coffee, but our schedules conflicted. So no Mr. Officer for me. Doesn't matter anywyas, because I miss Officer Natt....or Nat....or Knatt....Well, whatever, Officer Looking-Good-but-probably-married-and-somewhat-psycho-but-nonetheless-drop-dead-gorgeous.

Hotel rates are based on double occupancy and if you're single and planning to take a vacation at a resort, you'll often have to pay a premium to sleep alone.
In fact, there's resort chain that doesn't even allow singles.
Canadian singles also can have a more difficult financial journey than their hitched compatriots.
There were some 3.3 million one-person households in 2006, and the number of singles in Canada is growing.
Singles say they like the freedom they have to manage their finances by themselves without interference from someone else.
But they also admit they'll likely have to keep working longer because they need the income and access to health benefits.
"One of the big concerns for singles, particularly for women, is the fear of outliving their money," says Patricia Lovett-Reid, Senior Vice President with TD Waterhouse. "Nine out of 10 women at some time in their lives will be totally responsible for their financial future. Their concern is not so much where their money will come from, but that they will outlive it. Singles, unlike couples, have no fall-back position."
Couples have a number of financial benefits that singles don't. (Singles, by the way, refers to people who have never married or become single because of the death of a spouse or partner. Becoming single through divorce or separation is another issue).
Perhaps the most obvious benefit of being a couple is the new rule allowing them to split their incomes and significantly reduce the amount of tax they pay.
A couple also might receive two rather than one set of government assistance programs such as the Canada Pension Plan and Old Age Security.
If both partners worked and had employer-sponsored plans, a couple will have a huge advantage over a single in retirement with two pensions.
If one of the spouses dies, assets most likely will pass to the survivor, including RRSPs, RRIFs, pensions, CPP, non-registered investments, and in some cases, insurance policies.
The onus to save and take control of their financial future is greater on singles than it is on couples.
There's an old saying that two can live cheaper than one. In fact, expenses such as utilities, property taxes and housing costs in retirement for a single person are about the same as for a couple.
On the savings side, the single person doesn't have the advantage of a second pension or set of government assistance programs like a couple.
The good news is that as long as you've got income, you've got an opportunity to save.
Even if you're single and getting close to retirement, one of your key goals still should be to maximize your retirement savings.
If you're not contributing the maximum to your RRSP, it's never too late to start. Besides offering tax sheltered growth, RRSP contributions are tax deductible in the year you make them and the tax refund can be used to generate additional savings.
If you are able to participate in an employer-sponsored pension or other kind of plan, make sure you're making the most of any benefits, such as automatic payroll RRSP deductions or participating in an employee stock purchase program.
Whether by choice or not, leaving a job usually results in a substantial cash payout. Used wisely, that payment can help to supercharge your retirement savings.
Another idea is to see if you can take a hobby or what you do in your spare time into an income-generating activity.
One of the best and perhaps most overlooked ways to save money is to reduce spending.
"The real issue is not how much you make, but how much you spend," says Lovett-Reid. "We are seeing singles starting to save earlier and becoming more cautious about taking on debt."
Although the single life has many benefits, taking control of your financial future is your responsibility, and yours alone.

Mmm, Fried chicken....
Fly vixen! Give me heart Disease,
But need you in my kitchen.
You a bird, but you ain't a key,
Got wings but you can't fly away from me.
Driving in your bucket seats, all the way from Kentucky,
To fuck with me.
Look what you done to me, was number one to me!
After you shower, you and your gold medal flour,
Then you rub on hot oil for 'bout a half an hour.
You in your hot tub, I'm looking at you salivating,
Dry you off, I got your paper towel waiting .
Lay you down cause you're red hot.
Louisiana style you make my head rock
Then I flock to the bed then, "Plop",
When we done, I need rest.
Don't know a part of you that I love best;
Your legs or your breast.
Misses Fried Chicken, you gon' be a nigga death.
Created by southern black women
To serve master's guest.
You gon' be a nigga death.
Misses Fried Chicken
You was my addiction, Dripping with cholest'
Like Greeks with his felafel, Or Italians with his to-mato pasta,
Or roti is to a Rasta.
Trapping me, you and your friend mac and cheese,
Candy yams, collard greens.....
But you knocking me to my knees.
It's killing me when I'm this high,
Nothing I need more than a fish fry.
Shit, It taste good, I can't lie.
It's like you're walking out a tanning saloon,
When I pull you out the oven, from baking I got you on my mind.
Rubbing that sun tan lotion all up over your body,
So amazing, how you sparkle when I glaze you swine.
Hey, my pretty hamhock, it's so feminine
The way you submitting, And how you gave me power.
To massaging me to shower you with lemon water,
Marinate you with season, you dipping. You in chowder
Baby, It's like you at the spa;
The way you gently lay in the pan,
While you enjoying you butter milk treatment.
I sit and watch the grease sizzle bubbling
On your skin.
Despite the funny fragrance, Still I lick my finger frequent.
In any event, I'm reflecting on all the signs saying that I got,
I shouldn't fuck with you.
But the way you taste made it hard to resist when I put my mouth on you,
But that's another issue.
Butterflies up in my stomach when I laid eye on you;
Was it infection manifesting?
Confused over the feeling, impatiently eating you
Trichina worm worm chewing on the walls of my intestine.
I'ma eat you until there's nothing left.
Til my very last breath, You gon be a nigga death.
Despite appearin’ the best and specialize in cooking swine as a chef.
You gon be a nigga death.
Who cares if the swine is mixed with rat, cat, and dog combined?
Yes, I eat the shit to death
Ain't that some shit?
I'ma eat some shit
Until what I'm eating KILLS ME!
And I choose to do that
Cause that's just what niggas do

Now, add up the number of x's and multiply by 2 to get the weight that you should be.
I should be 102......
When I heard this, I called him back and left a message for him, because even though he didn't pick up my call, I didn't trip out on him.....or at least I thought I wouldn't...... And I said to him " So what, I was out with my friends, i'm a grown woman, it's the weekend!!! Oh, so what if I don't answer my phone, what if I'm not alone, i'm with him. What's it to you? I need to get out, you are killing me, and I just wanna get out, you are killing me. Whatcha wanna do? I cannot escape, no matter what I do, can't get away from you. Oh, call me everyday and that there ain't never cool, getting on my nerves. I think it's time you knew; only gave you my number cause, drinks made you cuter, plus you were looking sad and lonely. Oh but that's all it was, just put you in the game and here you go complainin' what's up with you? I need to get out. You are killing me."
So maybe I over reacted, but it was annoying how he used to call all the time and complain and shit. I didn't know it was so mean, until I said it, to be honest. But he didn't take it that way, instead he called back and left this message (because now I was avoiding him) "Like whoa lil mama, it's the second time I'm callin' your number. I ain't chasin', I ain't even no runner. Don't you know I push the Hummer in the summer, huh? How you hard to be reached? I can put you where you hard to be reached, white sand on the balls of your feet. You can scream, ain't no body gon' be sleep, this your own private beach, ha, hand when it comes to sex, just a little bit of love and little bit of that, maybe push it back where your ribs is at. Share a bowl of crunch berries, how real is that? haha I'm just jokin' of course. I'm trying to put your sex game back on course. If you feelin' dry, like you don't get moist. If you ever get a minute holla at yo' boy."

WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may leave you wondering what the hell happened to your bra and panties.
I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day. ~Frank Sinatra

WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may lead you to think people are laughing WITH you.
24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not. ~ Stephen Wright

WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may make you think you can logically converse with members of the opposite sex without spitting.
And saving the best for last, as explained by Cliff Clavin, of Cheers:
One afternoon at Cheers, Cliff Clavin was explaining the Buffalo Theory to his buddy Norm. Here's how it went: "Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first . This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."
WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may make you think you are whispering when you are not

Just thought I would share some pertinent info for anyone who's child is taking the school bus for the first time:
Ontario's school population includes over two million students. Of those, over 800,000 use school buses every day. This includes children who are bused from rural areas and children who participate in special programs, such as French immersion, as well as those who use school buses for field trips.
Research conducted by Transport Canada shows that school bus travel is one of the safest methods of transportation - and is 16 times safer than travelling in the family car, based on the number of passengers and kilometres travelled. Although school buses have an excellent safety record, mishaps can happen, and injuries can result. These can include both children riding on the bus and children who suffer injuries as a result of being hit by their own school bus or by other vehicles.
Rules for getting on the bus safely:
Rules for Safe School Bus Riding:
- Take your seat promptly and sit properly, facing forward at all times.
- Hold bags and parcels in your lap.
- Do not stick your feet into the aisle: someone might trip.
- Keep your head and arms-everything-inside the bus.
- Don't throw anything out the windows or around in the bus.
- Talk quietly. The driver must concentrate to drive the bus safely.
- Save snacks for snack time at school or till you get home. They may spill or you may choke if the bus goes over a big bump.
- No fighting, shouting or playing in or around the bus.
- Always follow the bus driver's instructions.
Rules for leaving the bus safely:
- When you leave the bus, hold the handrail and take two large steps away from the bus.
- To cross the street in front of the bus, walk ahead at least ten giant steps (three metres). Cross only when the driver gives a signal. Cross the street in single file.
- If you drop something near the bus, don't pick it up. Tell the driver or other adult.
- If everyone is getting off the bus, the people at the front leave first. Do not push.
If you don't stop for a school bus, you can be fined $400 to $2000 and get six demerit points for a first offence. If you break the rule a second time, the penalty is a fine of $1000 to $4000 and six demerit points. You could also go to jail for up to six months.
School buses are designed to protect passengers through "compartmentalization". This means that school buses have:
- seats with high backs
- the seats positioned close together to form compartments
- seats filled with energy-absorbing material
- strong seat anchorages
Parents also need to be aware of additional information about seat belts:
- to be effective, seat belts must be worn correctly (snug and low on the hips) for full protection. Seat belts which are not correctly worn may cause injuries.
- because school vehicles carry passengers from the very young to high school students, seat belt fit must be readjusted and use monitored to ensure safety.
- because of increased use, seat belts on school buses are subject to more wear and tear, and their condition must be monitored.
- studies using dummies have shown that adding seat belts to the current school bus seating arrangement can actually increase the chance of head and neck injuries in restrained passengers.
So this little, but scary, creature has suddenly become an inhabitant in our household as of late. How I found out, was watching t.v in the basement on tuesday night and I saw something mobe out of the corner of my eye. Quickly moved my attention to the wall and noticed this creature scurrying around. OMG!!! Needless to say, I was a little bit petrified. First thing I looked for was something to smush it with. Found my daughter's slipper. Didn't look like it would do the job, to be honest. Plus, I didn't want to have to think about touching it, even w/ a slipper. Plus those legs were pretty long, I had this notion in my head that if I did hit it, that some of those lose appendages will come out from under the slipper and sting me anyway. So, I got the Raid from upstairs. Now, I had issues with this too, as I thought that as soon as I sprayed it, this creature would also run away and I wouldn't be able to get it and it would somehow become immune or it would jump on me. I did a test spray before going back downstairs. So I went downstairs and sprayed it good. Even when it fell off the ceiling, I stilled sparyed it. I'm sure I used up more than half the can. NTS: must buy my mom a can of Raid.
So I did some research and was able to find out some info regarding this strange creature that I have not seen before. I googled basement bugs and some images popped up of my mysterious creature and this is how I found out that it has a name: House Centipede.
Here are some facts: Basically, they are good for house! Who would've guessed?!?! They feed off household pests like spiders, ants, termites and silverfish. So if you can deal with seeing these creature about, they actually help out. The house centipede is 25–50 mm (one to two inches) long and has an average of 15 pairs of very long, delicate legs and a rigid body, which enables it to run with surprising speed – up to 406 mm (16 inches) per second. Also, even though they are venomous, most House Centipedes bites cannot penetrate human skin. Those that can give an effect no worse than a minor bee sting. The bite cannot even affect regular household pets. Oh, and they love to breed!! Great.....
