Somethings make you laugh.

Like this: Last Sunday three little old Church ladies in thier humongous hats and floral-print dresses were sitting in my section. Nice ladies, very sweet, no trouble at all to wait on. Anyhoo, right before they left one of them (the one with the biggest hat – I guess she was the leader of the […]

Never Again, Ever.

I’ve been nice to my last person. Every time I try to be nice, to go out of my way to do something for somebody to help them out, I get shat upon. It gets old. Real. Frickin’. Quick. To everyone who has been appreciative, thank you. No good deed goes unpunished, so… to everyone […]

Post To A Blog?

Forbes Magazine says your evil, and should be destoryed. Ok, maybe not that drastic, but Blogmeisters are lynchmobs. Forbes Magazine goes after Bloggers.

You wouldn’t believe it.

Not particularly safe for work, but funny.

How could it be

…the face of an angel could drag me down and leave me blind* It’s been a heck of a day, tempered only by the fact that I have several obligations to live up to this weekend, neither of which is my heart into. I’ve made sure to steer clear of caffeine so that hopefully I […]

On The Curve

I was talking to a friend the other day and the topic of “grade inflation” came up. This is something that really irritates me to no end. Why? Because we are rewarding individuals for work that they are not doing. A local university teaches military personnel. Are you aware that if those personnel are not […]

It simply wasn’t her time.

Miers followed her conscious and has withdrawn. I may not have agreed with her nomination, nor her stances on issues, but I respect the woman for realizing it was a lost cause and for not wasting the nation’s time. If more elected officials would follow that lead, imagine how the US could propser.

Morning Musical Interlude

“In The Club Or In The Queue” Unreleased track by Pet Shop Boys (1984) If i went out one night to grab a bit to eat find a friendly face upon the crowded street I wish I could come across you in the club or in the queue and find you’ve changed your mind for […]

Other things I wish I could say, but cannot

* I appreciate you being yourself. You’ve never asked me to be anything else, but you can’t see that. * Is it really that much of a blow to masculinity to cry? Men have emotions and feelings too. Sometimes they hurt. * Dagnabit, I’ve told you the same answer 11 times. Why do you think […]

This comes as no surprise

IF we can believe everything we read in the press (which we can’t), this may need to be taken with a grain shaker of salt. However, since Americans are capitalistic by nature, the following article shouldn’t shock anyone. Except that it goes to show how much we, as Americans, have tripped up in the quest […]

A Love Story

I SHALL SEEK AND FIND YOU. I SHALL TAKE YOU TO BED AND HAVE MY WAY WITH YOU. I WILL MAKE YOU ACHE, SHAKE AND SWEAT UNTIL YOU MOAN AND GROAN. I WILL MAKE YOU BEG FOR MERCY AND BEG FOR ME TO STOP. I WILL EXHAUST YOU TO THE POINT THAT YOU WILL BE […]

:-)

How could an innocent question like “Do you know me?” end up like this? Why Lawyers should never ask a witness a question if they aren’t prepared for the answer: ________________________________________________________________ In a trial, a Southern small town prosecuting attorney called his first witness to the stand; a grandmotherly, elderly woman. He approached her and […]

What have I been doing with my life?

I’ve been enjoying flavoured coffees again. It works like a charm…as long as you get the grind right. From the web: “Replaces the pod holder in your Home Cafe* pod coffee maker so you can use your own coffee. Brew to the strength of your choice. Add more coffee for a stronger cup; reduce it […]

Musically Speaking

…all three a few of my readers wanted to know what I keep on my xClef (the iPodesque player I have with me) I’ll admit I used to not put in MP3 tags correctly, and I’m going through correcting this, but…. …until that point in time, here’s the PDF (4.14 mb) of the MP3s I […]

Small Whilte Dot

Seems to be the morning for humour. A kindergarten class had a homework assignment to find out something exciting and relate it to the class the next day. When the time came to present what they’d found, the first little boy the teacher called on walked up to the front of the class, and with […]
