I really shouldn’t be going back thorugh my memory scrapbook today, should I? After all, remembering having to teach someone how to pronounce “La Isla Bonita” (LA EES-LA BO KNEE TA) should not bring a smile to my face, but it does.

Got a major event happening here at the house this morning which I can’t talk about just yet on ye olde blog. Those closest to me know about it. They also know what it is in regards to. I’ll try to blog afterwards, but have been told this could take 3-4 hours.
that the faster you try to do things, the longer it takes you to do them? I guess when they say “slow and steady gets the job done”, that “they” knew what they’re talking about. Still. Morning comes far too early and far too soon.
Once upon a time there was a lobster named Larry and a sand crab named Sam who were fantastic musicians on the disco circuit. They jammed for many years until one night, after a gig and a few beers, they stepped out of a club and were run down and killed by a Mack truck. […]
The night of my senior prom. A night I shall never forget. The memories are coming back to me now (more of a phone call I received the morning of May 10 than anything) and they’re painful. I’ll tell more in time. I’ve mentioned it before. I’ll probably never stop talking about it.
…I won’t beg you to stay. If you gotta go, darling, maybe it’s better that way. Just a bit of a lyric from “Don’t Turn Around” as recorded by Aswad/Tina Turner/Ace of Base
Thank goodness this (found on ozjokes.com) isn’t true. But it’s easy to see how it might be someday: The European Union commissioners have announced that agreement has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for European communications, rather than German, which was the other possibility. As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty’s Government […]
and so should you be as well! Here’s 12 reasons to be thankful that you burnt the turkey! 1. Salmonella won’t be a concern. 2. Everyone will think your turkey is Cajun blackened. 3. Uninvited guests will think twice next year. 4. Your cheese broccoli lima bean casserole will gain newfound appreciation. 5. Pets won’t […]
…almost down to the wire, even. Christmas 2005, “STAR OF WONDER” CD is now mastered and being played. Once it makes it through, then the duplication begins. 🙂
Drama. It’s going to be everywhere and anywhere you want to be. Sure, we can say we don’t want drama, we won’t tolerate drama, we don’t want any part of drama. But just by interacting with other human beings, there’s going to be drama. Lots of it. Some will be award winning quality drama. Some […]
I *REFUSE* to call it dieting. Down 3 pounds. Know it’s all water weight. Am starting to get grumpy. A hungry heavy person is not a happy person. But then again, a heavy person normally is not a happy person. My skin doesn’t fit any more, and the store tells me it’s on backorder for […]
So much to do with the house, so little time. Love it, hate it, swear I’ll never do it again, once it’s over. Then the next year rolls around. LOL. Typical, no?
It’s Bananarama! Look On The Floor (Hypnotic Tango) RealVideo
The year is drawing to an end. Someone want to explain where time has rocketed to? For that matter, someone want to explain why I feel the days drag on and on, but the months fly by?
Think about them one at a time BEFORE going on to the next one… IT DOES MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD, especially the thought at the end. 1. Falling in love. 2. Laughing so hard your face hurts. 3. A hot shower. 4. No lines at the supermarket 5. A special glance. 6. Getting mail 7. […]
America has now had the first CONFIRMED case of bird flu, reported in LA. The nation is stunned. Bush is concerned.
“Real Men Cuddle”. Interesting philosophy, n’est-ce pas?
that the dim lights of a bar can not only make others appear more interesting, but can also make others appear more interested in you? I was watching a pool tourney with a couple friends of mine, and we’ll just say the ol’ ego got a bit of a massage. People, whom I would have […]
…looks like some thrift stores are going to be very happy this holiday season as we continue to declutter the Shenandoah Forester. Looking back on how far the house has come in the 8 years I’ve lived there (this being the 9th Christmas party, as we had one three months after we moved in), it’s […]
“What to buy for the person who’s HAD everyone.” Cute.
….who have never been in a Wendy’s? Tink and I were at lunch today and the orderers before her asked for “Chocolate Frosties”. Have they ever come in any other flavour? Methinks not. I also think they need to get out more. LOL.
Just for Neil. Cruel Winter (As performed by Frozen Banana) Cold city streets and the pavement is crowded I mope around Tried to stay warm but the wind, it just blows on and on. Tropic places are calling (ooh, how do they call?) These Temps I really can’t stand… I’m frozen asunder, just walking the […]
The house is decorated; Tink helped out by carrying stuff up from the cellar, and with decorating the tree. She’s upset, however, that she didn’t garner a mention in my previous post about being decorated, finally. She didn’t seem to read that I wrote : Thanks to PoloRandy’s help, the outside of the house (as […]
I will admit that I am passionate about my beliefs. I also have a very short fuse when it comes to bullshit. This, sometimes, makes for interesting conversations between me and others, and also occasionally leads to my showing how passionate about my beliefs and how deep they run actually are. I am contemplating a […]
Note to self. Always take the monday after a holiday off as well.
