I am a responsible blogger who sees fashion as a gateway to life. I figure, as long as we are all expected to get dressed each morning - fashion is a gateway drug to anything you want to blame on it. Most criminals are clothed when they commit crimes. Maybe it is not their upbringing at all, but the fact their pants do not go with the shirt they chose.

I imagine most people have seen the video by now of the big ride that broke down and sent people flying off into the air. Ya … that pretty much sums up why I don't do the rides anymore.
Like most kids, I was all over the rides. Growing up and attending almost every world famous Stampede during those years, we had a good exposure to rides. I always wanted the latest and greatest. There is something about rides that are just thrown up in a few hours having travelled from some other little Canadian town's animal and veggie-o-rama. It is like a prairie kids one chance to live on the edge.
That and eating the crap they sell there.
Then you become a mother and the whole throwing up bit sort of loses its charm. (not to mention the prices) I didn't want to throw up and I wasn't real keen on cleaning up the throw up from my kids who wanted to ride. They already lived in the city. They didn't NEED the rides, they had downtown and surviving Junior High to give them all the life and death situations they could possibly NEED. I saved them from wheat and cows for crying out loud - why can't kids ever be happy with what they have?
