To make myself feel better about blowing the lessons, we watched Hawaii-five-0 at dinner. You can tell that I'm rather obsessed with crime dramas set in Hawaii, mostly because I like to pretend that I am there. I may have mentioned before that I spent the best month of my life in Hawaii many years ago and I've been trying to get back there ever since. Can you see why?
I made it back once when we were in China, which was awesome because I was in training with some great friends. And we tried and tried to get there when we lived in Korea, but it never worked out, so we went to Guam instead which I think I loved almost as much. But today, on the episode of 5-0 that we watched, Hawaii was doubling for North Korea which just makes me crack up, because anyone who knows North Korea knows that it doesn't look like Waimea Bay, it looks much more like the Oklahoma dust bowl but with mountains. Here is an actual picture of North Korea.
Reese Witherspoon is having a worse day than me. In case you can't tell, this is her mug shot.
Not bad for being drunk and disorderly, is it? See, Ms. Witherspoon was drunk in a car with her husband when he was pulled over on suspicion of a DUI. And instead of being kind and polite to the officer who had every right to protect the rest of America from being killed by people too drunk to drive, she got out of the car and asked him if he knew who she was and said he was about to get on national television and made a big commotion and got handcuffed. Well, she was right because that story is all over the news. Only instead of being mad at the police officer, all of America is laughing at how ridiculous and entitled Ms. Witherspoon sounded. I'm a little sad, because I liked her and thought she was smart, but she acted just like any other Hollywood brat. So thank you, Ms. Witherspoon, for reminding me how smart it is to never, ever drink and drive and even smarter not to ride in a car with a drunk driver and to never yell at a police officer. Elle Woods would be ashamed of you. No snaps for you.
