Hmm. Could I be like Oprah and start an “after the blog” where I ask readers such as yourself questions? Well, I could, but looking at the lack of comments, I dare say I’d be talking to myself. Off to dreamland. Roxette Bunny™ is enjoying Mother Nature’s light show and says HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!

The reason your computer tech will never make it in the OB/GYN Field: Nite everyone.
Thanks to TINK for alerting me to this: When she came through the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel, traffic Eastbound was backed up out of sight. They had stopped traffic, and in fact were turning traffic around. Smart thinker that she is, she called the hotline (1-800-792-2800) and of course, the HRBT Representative said that Eastbound [...]
10. You must be able to see over the steering wheel without a booster seat. 9. Your radio should only be audible in YOUR vehicle. 8. Peeling out is a waste of IQ. 7. The smaller and more expensive the car, the smaller the genitalia. 6. Spinning hub caps are a waste of money. 5. [...]
My latest creation — you were right, Susie — it’s addictive!
The Truth Laid Bear: I want to be ‘Stitch’ when I grow up
I just received an IM from someone telling me that Florence Blabbery* should not wear salmon. Of course, my first thought is, the colour, or the fish? In a University, just about anything’s possible. *Not Florence’s real name….
Spoke with a guy at United Furniture — same story of 2-3 days, but HE was the one who put the sign on the door last night that he opened the store at 10 and closed it at 6 — he was SICK OF PEOPLE CALLING WONDERING WHERE THEIR FURNITURE WAS and suggested MAYBE THE [...]
Is there any other way to do them than “while you wait”?
I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOO Famous (and I’m not Margaret Cho’s mother, either). See here.
Rocket Jones gives us a lesson in tongues (no pun intended) with the oft-overlooked definition of the chinese term, “Porn Shui”.
Fancy that. I actually had my 1,000 visitor while chowing down on mexican. (Actually, that was the 1,000 visitor since I started keeping score.) People like Rachel get more than this in a day; It takes Bill about 3 days to build up this much excrement excitement. The heights I reach for.
On the Fritz – Observations of Modern Life
Nothing irritates me more than a good old fashioned FIVE MILE BACKUP at the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel that, when you call to check on, they are sure to meniton that the “15th View Gate” is down (that’s the last entrance before the bridge, designed to keep people from “jumping line”) then, once you’ve suffered [...]
Still waiting on the refinancing, and what load of BS do I get handed today? An email from the “closing officer” stating: I just received an email stating that the appraiser has left several messages to set an appointment with you to do the interior appraisal of your home. Can you please contact them at [...]
Ambient Irony Way to go on the upgrade — I hope all goes smoothly!
The last couple times I flew, it was a major pain in the ass. I mean, they have to x-ray everything, including your shoes now. On top of that, CNN now reports: “Homeland Security officials have told CNN that an advisory will be issued directing the aviation industry and all federal screeners and local authorities [...]
It’s a sad, sad day, boys and girls in BlogLand. CNN.com – Fire engulfs seven-story bourbon warehouse in Kentucky – Aug. 5, 2003
The Issue of Hampton Roads Monthly with the PeTA person on the front tonging a sausage that would make most women blush includes an article about the Hampton Carousel. The article is a good one except for one thing: The story told of how Hampton obtained the carousel is a lie. The City had been [...]
Over at Pharsite, they offer this tasty tidbit: Mr. Baker, As an employee of an institution of higher education, I have a few very basic expectations. Chief among these is that my direct superior shares an intellect that ranges above the common ground squirrel. After your consistent and annoying harassment of myself, and my co-workers [...]
I believe in sharing the spotlight with those who deserve their 15 minutes of fame: This is Tink’s nephew, who plays the pipes. And yes, his hair is Purple.

Seems that the Bear that Laid out the Truth is suffering server problems, and that the Ecosystem is missing. Wonder what that will do for the rest of us? Or maybe the fact that I’m up to 50 hits a day fried his computational software. LOL
