Final Thought

THis may not be the final entry today, but just in case I get sleepy, I don’t want to miss putting this in:

Buttnuggets

I just got off the phone with a friend of mine from back in my High School days. Poor thing, she’s had a hard row to hoe since then. She’s got 3 kids, (1 when she was right out of high school with her first husband, and two later). The problem? Her second husband is […]

Sometimes

only Hamburger Helper will do. Like with dinner tonight. But my question is WHAT THE HELL HAVE THEY DONE TO MY FAVOURITE FLAVOUR? Stroganoff. It used to come with a packet of gunk you mixed with 2 tablespoons of milk to make a chemical laiden sour-cream/thickener stuff. And it used to have rotini pasta. Now, […]

Can anyone tell me

The story behind the songs on my 35th Birthday CD? (Actually, not the story behind each individual song, but the plot that takes place through the playing of the album (conisder it like a mini-musical) Make up a story, tell what you think is the truth…. Best of show wins a special gift* I’ll post, […]

We don’t Want You To Know

The entire stance the govenerment has taken on “photographic coffins” is pathetic. I’m sorry that the cargo worker who snapped a photograph of flag-draped coffins was fired. She was showing the respect paid to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. She received no compensation. Now, if she were snapping photos of the contents of those […]

Lunch. It was Decent

At at the Town Point Club today. They had a “Grand Buffet” (with jumbo shrimp, lobster bisque, grilled pork, roasted turkey, several types of salmon, and wonderful desserts). No beef however. Kind of disappointing about that. But there was no chicken, either, so, all was not a loss. Of course, not I’m stuffed and find […]

I can officially say it now

I’m ashamed to be a Virginian. As reported in today’s Virginian Pilot: Supporters of the ban on gay unions garnered the required two-thirds majorities in the House of Delegates and the Senate needed to inoculate the legislation from a gubernatorial veto, ensuring that the measure will become law on July 1. The action was lauded […]

This Takes The Cake

Client calls me and informs that he is unable to eject a floppy a student has given him from his PC. Now, I’ve had my share of stuck floppies, so I head on down to their office. Client has three students in his office. I walk in, sit down, press the eject button, and WHOOSH. […]

Okay

So, boys and girls, don’t look for anything to happen this year. Possibly not next. Why? Well, Tink, PR and I were in the living room last night, and I said something in passing that required a response from PR. My take was that I had been stonewalled. Basically ignored. Tink’s take was: you definitely […]

I’ll Take

“Felons That Start with’M’ ” for $1,000, Alex. I feel somewhat better about Martha being convicted now that the Grand Jury has returned an indictment against Michael Jackson. Sorry, Jacko, but if you did it, prepare to be Bubba’s Prison Bitch. I used to like his music, then, it all sounded the same. On a […]

GENE POOL NEEDS CHLORINE!

You know, after I repsonded to the originator of said Urban Legend Dissemination, she has the NERVE to respond back: It may have started as an urban legend, but my understanding is that this has occurred in the City of Norfolk, according to DARE. Funny. I just called DARE. They said they know it’s a […]

Grr. How many times?

Do I have to tell people to check crap before the forward it on? I get an email from a coworker today that said: My husband’s employer, Ford Motor Company, was notified yesterday by the Norfolk DARE program regarding a new and potentially deadly gang initiation going on in the Tidewater area. The gang members […]

Look at the time!

Well, guess I didn’t look at the time last night before not putting in a final thought. Seems I was more interested in checking my eyelids for leaks. Am back to blogging today, so we’ll see how it all goes. 🙂 It’s getting closer to the weekend…how’s everyones THURSDAY? (Hmm, if you’re supposed to eat […]

MATHEMATICAL FORMULA

From a strictly mathematical viewpoint it goes like this: What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes […]
