Over The Rainbow
The Wizard of Oz was on the other night.
Have you ever really stopped and thought about this movie?
It really was all Totos fault that Dorothy got into the trouble she got into.
Think about it....
Toto got the crazy towns lady mad.
Crazy towns lady took Toto who promptly got away.
Dorothy runs away so Toto doesnt get sent up the river and winds up getting caught up in a Twister.
Dorothy and Toto spin round and round in her little black and white house then end up in a land of phsychadelic Munchkins where she kills a bad witch with her house and gets the bad gals ruby slippers from a good witch only to have the bad witches' sister, Wickeder witch come gunning for her thru out the land of yellow brick roads and talking scarecrows and walking tinmans and cowardly lions.
"I'll get you my pretty...and your little dog toooo!"
Dorothy battles talking trees and sleep induced flowers only to be confronted by a fake wizard that Toto exposes and then gets kidnapped by a bunch of flying monkeys!
The broom she was instructed to get was a scam. The wizard was a scam. The Scarecrow really did have a brain. The Tinman had a heart and the Cowardly Lion showed his courage.
The only good thing outta infiltrating the witchs' castle was that when the witch melted, those funky monkeys turned into real soldiers who had been trapped by the wicked witchs' spell. Hail Dorothy!
When the fake wizard tells Dorothy that she can hitch a ride to Kansas with him in his hot air balloon, she jumps at the chance! But then Toto takes off and she runs after him and the hot air balloon takes off and he cant steer it to come back for Dorothy.
Drats! That dang dog!
Glinda the good witch appears and tells Dorothy that she has always had the power to go back to Kansas. She didnt tell her before because Dorothy had to learn it for herself.
Ok, so now all she has to do is click her heels together, close her eyes and say...
"Theres no place like home. Theres no place like home..."
What kinda hippie haze was Dorothy in? Was Toto really a metaphor for some hyped up hippie crank?
If not...well this is where i would have punched Glinda in the nose and got back to Kansas and had Toto fixed.
"Toto....i dont think we're in Kansas anymore..."

An Oldie But a Goodie.
I was going thru my old AOL journal entries and found this one. It made me laugh. I needed a good laugh. Hope you enjoy it.
