Snow, Snow, Snow

Today makes day 3 after the “blizard”. I’ve heard an old wive’s tale that says if snow sticks around 3 days after it falls, it’s waiting for more. We may be in for a snowy season.

Return of…

…the Silver Blue. Let’s just say I’m not happy with Delta/ComAir. I’m even less happy with the fat bastard who decided, when he was called to the counter for rebooking, to play 49 questions over with the agent over who was to blame for us not having a pilot for our flight. I told him […]

Happiest of…

….holidays to each and every one of you. I’m with (most of) my family this year, out of state for the first time in almost 20 years. Merry Christmas. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them. All the best … …until we meet again. Silver Blue

Evening Humour

Mom arrived at the function looking absolutely the best she had for years. “You look great,” said Dad. “You should always leave your bras at home.” “How did you know?” she asked. “Because you’ve lost all the wrinkles from your face,” he said.

I Gave My Dad…

….PORN. LOL. Soft Core Porn for the holidays. What do you give a man who has just about everything? How about a DVD? Not just ANY DVD. “The Man Show Presents: Girls On Trampolines.” (Including the great Guess Her Bra Size game). It’s a sad, sad day when this is the best you can come […]

On “The Dame Edna Experience”, when Dame Edna was interviewing Zza Zza Gabor: Gabor: “I’m A House Frau” Edna: “Don’t say that about yourself.” Gabor: “No, it’s true. When I get divorced, I keep the house.”

Let’s Hear It For Imagery.

Deputy Attorney General Richard Guida, slender, with a large ego, who loved cross-examination the way a lion loves eating antelope, prosecuted. I think that kind of gets the point across. (Taken from Court TV’s archives)

17 Dec


A couple had two little mischievous boys, ages 8 and 10. They were always getting into trouble, and their parents knew that if any mischief occurred in their town, their sons would get the blame. The boys’ mother heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he […]

If it’s not one thing…

…it’s another. In the past six weeks, PoloRandy has suffered walking pneumonia, pleurisy, upper respiratory infection, bronchitis, a sinus infection, and now has strep throat. I know that, as a cancer survivor, his immune system has taken a hit from chemotherapy that he will never recover from, and I know his resistance is low from […]

It Does The Heart Good

I heard from an old (as in length of time, not as in age) friend of mine from Northern Virginia today. We’d lost touch for a while, and it really did my heart good to hear from her, to catch up with that was going on in her family, and let her know what was […]

Cyber-Sex Dear John Letter

You never know, this might come in handy one day. Dear [insert screen name here] (if that is your real name), I regret to inform you that, under a plan for the periodic removal of unpleasantness from my life, I must terminate our online affair. This termination takes effect immediately, but only because I could […]

Christmas Eating Guide

1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they’re serving rum balls. I think Roxette Bunny™ inserted this one, but I can’t be for sure!!!! 2. Drink as much eggnog as you […]

Truth Hurts!

A woman goes to the local psychic in hopes of contacting her dearly departed grandmother. The psychic’s eyelids begin fluttering, her voice begins warbling, her hands float up above the table, and she begins moaning. Eventually, a coherent voice emanates, saying, “Granddaughter? Are you there?” The customer, wide-eyed and on the edge of her seat, […]

There will be lots of spiked eggnog and a small band playing traditional carols … feel free to singalong. And don’t be surprised if our CEO shows up dressed […]

Afternoon Humour

Once upon a time, there were 3 little pigs. The straw pig, the stick pig, and the brick pig. One day this nasty old wolf came up to the straw pigs house and said, “I’m gonna huff, and puff and blow your house down.” And he did! So the straw pig went running over to […]

Words Of Inspiration

I’ve been down as of late — there’s just been a lot of illness, ill-will, and ill-conceived notions. I walked into my office this morning and looked over to the bookshelf, where I saw, for the first time in quite a while, a framed copy of a card I bought myself over 10 years ago. […]
