I can't sleep - as usual. TCM isn't helping by showing 80's Oscar winning movies. I sat through most of "War Games" and now I'm in the middle of "Stand By Me". I bet I've seen it at least 10 times but probably not in 16 or 17 years. The funny thing is that I almost turned it off.

I don't know - the movie makes me think about being that age again and it's weird - mildy depressing. It's funny to think back to a time when my grandmother was still here, there was no going to work everyday, no internet, no cable, no cell phones. I wonder how my kids are going to look back at all of this. I'm guessing the world will be a lot different when they are my age thinking back to now. If Al Gore is right, it will be a lot hotter!

It's funny to think at one time I was worried about getting out of high school and figuring out what I wanted to do and now I worry about sending two kids to college, paying for two weddings (one day, far from now, I hope!), and retirement!

Oh well, the scene with the pie eating contest is coming on.
