Why I never drink at Office Parties.

After the annual office Christmas party blow-out, John woke up with a pounding headache, cotton-mouthed, and utterly unable to recall the events of the preceding evening. After a trip to the bathroom he was able to make his way downstairs, where his wife put some coffee in front of him. “Louise,” he moaned, “tell me […]

As the world slept…

…one silent night.* All is quiet here at the Shenandoah Forester. PR’s taking down the Christmas decorations at the church, preparing it for the arrival of the new Interim Minister (who still, by the way, hasn’t signed the contract). If I have but one wish to make for the church for 2006 (and Religion as […]

Afternoon Humour

Susie: My last boyfriend said he fantasized about having two girls at once. Amber: Yeah, most men do. What did you tell him? Susie: I said, “If you can’t satisfy one woman, why would you want to piss off another one?”

Avoid Cracker Barrel

…like the plague. This is the second time in the past few months that we’ve gone, waiting for a seat, and received crappy service.

I withdrew the cork from the first bottle and poured the contents down the sink with the […]

Tink got me exactly what I wanted, The Collectors Edition of “Titanic” (Thanks lady!), while PR got me a Cherished Teddy […]
