tick tock

you know as a kid Alice in Wonderland was like my favorite, a) cuz she was blonde (like me) b)it was totally off the wall and c)the little white rabbit that was always late, whom I have a love/hate realtionship with (i'll explain after)

In the 80's there was an actual movie made (not the cheap cartoon, hate that) called Alice in Wonderland through the Looking Glass (or something like that - pic above), with a white and dark night, the jabberwalkie, etc. I loved this movie. In fact I loved it so much I hunted it down on eBay and bought both VHS tapes. yeah, crazy I know but I had to have it. (i'll google it and try to post a pic for ya later)

just one of those things

also another one of those things and the reason i'm so off topic here is that I hate, hate being late for anything. doesn't matter what it is, if I have an appointment i have to be on time or early. in fact I think i inherited this from my father as he doesn't like to be late either, I was early for my own wedding. who the hell is early for their wedding! isn't the bride supposed to be late??

anyways, so whenever i'm late I always here that damn rabbit in my head from Alice in Wonderland screaming "I"M LATE, I'M LATE, I'M LATE LATE LATE!"

weird i know, but I can't help it

and it totally puts me on edge

oh, and I also hate when things do not go my way


can't I control everything? I feel like I could turn into the hulk here....

Punctuality is a sign of respect, so I'm totally with you on the late thing. And I hate being held up by someone who is late!

I HATE not being able to control things. I am late sometimes though ... don't hate me ;)

happy Un-Birthday to you! To me? To me!

Down down down the rabbit hole and then you get an eat me (who could resist? And drink me..

God I love that book and the original movie.

I'm perpetually early, why because if you get somewhere early chances are you get seen before the people who are late for THEIR appointment. appointments.

Which means more me time.

I hate being late too! My parents were constantly late, I always felt it was disrespectful to other people's time.

I am with you on the control. I try to control everything in my world, and of course am fighting a loosing batter.

I hope you have a great weekend. I hated Alice in Wonderland. Too out of control for me! The girls were in a show, and it was good, but it disturbed me, in a weird way. I don't like weird things I guess.

I HATE being late too, and I think people who are consistantly later are control freaks too!!! I like to be early...it's so rude to be late. HATE THAT!!!

finally getting back to this...my bad

WC - totally agree with you here, perhaps that is why I care so much

Swishy - oh, there are times that i'm late on things too, like oh say not calling in for an appt. or just stupid things that I don't want to do, so I put them off and off and off

ttq - ha! love it! I just re-watched this movie on the wkd. still good, but yet weird as I remember being so scared of the Jabberwacky thingy and now he just looks like a big rubber fake monster...ah to be a child again (or not)

eileen - i've heard that before from pps I can understand that, everyone is different, but for me this show was "it"

beth - oh, I know, so rude eh!
