A Random Rebel on Tuesday with Coffee Chat
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo started last week. It's one of the largest national rodeos with millions given away in scholarships to deserving young men and women who have raised animals, and prize money to the professional cowboys and cowgirls in the rodeo in events such as bull riding, barrel racing, calf-roping, and many other events. They have miles of exhibits, everything from educational displays, petting zoos, and artwork, to booths with furniture, western wear, jewelry, and other goods for sale. And the food is delicious, if not expensive. And where else can you get a funnel cake besides the carnival? I gave up riding carnival rides years ago, but they actually have quite a few rides. The icing on the cake is the concerts: Eric Church, Hunter Hayes, Miranda Lambert, and Alan Jackson, to name a few. I just wish it didn't get so crowded. Which leads me to...
The highways are always crowded on the way downtown from where I live in suburbia, and I have to go downtown in a couple of weeks for jury duty. Oh, yes, that fun day of waiting to see if you get chosen for a panel, much less an actual jury. I've only served on a jury once. It was a pretty boring case, too. It was over the international rights to broadcast the World Cup, so it pitted one multi-million dollar company against another. It was hard to feel sorry for either of them! I wouldn't mind getting selected for a jury unless it was a really boring case. LOL! Which leads me to...
Coffee Chat - Would you rather edition.
Would you rather ride a roller coaster or ride a motion ride, the ones that show you a screen and make you feel like you're actually moving?
I would much rather ride a roller coaster! The motion rides make me sick! If I'm going to "feel" like I'm going somewhere, I want to actually GO somewhere. Roller coasters are exhilarating! I love one with a loop-de-loop and a really long drop in it. My favorite so far is the one at Disneyland's California Adventures. We rode it several times when we went a few years ago. We rode their motion ride, too, and it made me sick to my stomach. Haha! So, would you rather...?
