Bathroom, who gives a …

….holy heck! Three sinks, two cabinets and two toilets later, we finally have the new sink, vanity and toilet in. Yes, tempers flared, yes, plumbing didn’t match up (freakin’ old houses), yes, there were far too many trips to Lowes and Home Depot, but you know what? It all looks good now. Roxette Bunny™ has […]

What’s This? A Rant?

Yep. What’s got my gourd now? Well, it’s online music services. I purchase legal downloads from Real and from iTunes. For those of you who don’t know, iTunes actually runs four different stores (one for the US, one for the UK, one for France, and one for Germany). If you have an iTunes account, you […]

DMC XClef HD-500: A Review

As promised, here’s the review of my new iPod-esque device, the DMC XClef HD-500. I picked this up online from ebay for $349.00 including shipping (FedEx Ground, 7 day). Opened the box, and there, inside, safely secured in bubble wrap and retail box was the device. Make no mistake: this device is heavier (it weighs […]

I Am…

You Are a Snarky Blogger! You’ve got a razor sharp wit that bloggers are secretly scared of. And that’s why they read your posts as often as they can! What kind of blogger are you? (Found via LeeAnn)

Freakin’ Spammers

I hate Comment Spammers. Some ignorant fool is using a server from the Netherlands to attempt to comment spam my blog (black list is catching most of them, the rest are held for moderation since they have so many URLs in them). So far, in the past 24 hours, I’ve had 153 comments attempt to […]

Final Thought

(It’s been a while for these. Have a great nite!)

Hell, I’m in a genrous mood

Visit WindRider for a good picture laugh. (hell, it’s better than anything Bill (with no link) has posted (Halsy nor not) recently.)

Moonbats! We need an Exterminator!

Also, see here. If a person can say that they recommend the death penalty for two adults who aren’t harming anyone, then we really need to consider what kind of moonbats there are attempting to run the country. Bet you if it was two women in bed with him, he’d be fighting AGAINST that theoretical […]

Rumination of the Day

I looked under the hood; I inspected the tires and asked about the gas mileage; I even wanted to know if there were any bodies left in the trunk. Then it occurred to me: Never look a gift hearse in the mouth. (Stephanie Shiner-Thompson) (Thanks to Tink for passing this on)

Jumping on the bandwagon

(Found here (Echo Zoe). I used his link so he got the referrer credit). Please note: I’ve used his language here, for what to do, etc. For instructions on how to get a free iPod yourself: Go to FreeiPods.com (please use this link, I’m working on trying to get a free ipod). Sign up for […]

Morning humour

A little old lady answered a knock on the door one day, only to be confronted by a well-dressed young man carrying a vacuum cleaner. “Good morning,” said the young man. “If I could take a couple of minutes of your time, I would like to demonstrate the very latest in high-powered vacuum cleaners.”Go away!” […]

My toy has arrived!

I received the DMC XCLef HD-500 last night (my new iPod Clone) and will be giving you all a review soon. (It needed to charge when I got home from choir last night, so I didn’t get to play all that much with it.)

Here’s one

often attributed to Paul Harvey, but not confirmed. (Please note, these are not all statements I agree with): If I were the devil . . . I would gain control of the most powerful nation in the world; I would delude their minds into thinking that a 3000-year-old collection of superstition and mythology called the […]

Abstinence

A couple wanted to join the church. The pastor told them, “We have special requirements for new parishioners. You must abstain from sex for one whole month.” The couple agreed and after two-and-a-half weeks returned to the Church. When the Pastor ushers them into his office, the wife is crying and the husband obviously very […]

More T-Shirt Wisdom

“It is better to be hated for what you are, than loved for what you are not.”

The things you see

on t-shirts. Someone just walked by with one that said: “Does this condom make me look fat?”

Morning Humour

A woman was in bed with her lover when she heard her husband opening the front door. “Hurry!” she said, “stand in the corner.” She quickly rubbed baby oil all over him and then she dusted him with talcum powder. “Don’t move until I tell you to,” she whispered. “Just pretend you’re a statue.” “What’s […]

Ever wonder?

BE

CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR – YOU JUST MIGHT GET IT So this is the holidays, when dreams and wishes take center stage. People may act a little kinder, which is something I could never really understand. Why limit it to two or three weeks a year? But mainly, it seems that whole emphasis has […]

Peace…at last.

Credited to Robin Williams, but I haven’t been able to verify this. THE ROBIN WILLIAMS PEACE PLAN This may very well be the best thought out item we have read since 9/11/01. Leave it to Robin Williams to come up with the perfect plan . what we need now is for our UN Ambassador to […]
