New Orleans, my love *sniff*

I can't even begin to express how devastating it has been today watching the city that I love so and want so badly to call home be destroyed. I feel such a sense of grief, almost as if a dear friend has encountered a horribly disfiguring accident. I don't even know what to do with myself right now.

Leonard Nimoy.....Sings?????

Can someone please tell me what in the world is up with this? Billy sent me this bizarre and surreal link today and I just don't know what to say about it. Comments are most welcome.

Rockin' Nimoy

Thanks for the chain mails...

This hit my inbox courtesy of my Mom-person today and I had to share...thanks Mel! :)

"I want to thank all of you who have taken the time and trouble to send me your chain letters over the past two years.

Thank you for making me feel safe, secure, blessed, and wealthy. Because of your concern .....

I no longer can drink Coca Cola because it can remove toilet stains.

I no longer drink Pepsi or Dr. Pepper since the people who make these products are atheists who refuse to put "Under God" on their cans.

In fact, I avoid all sodas in cans because they might expose me to diseases from rat urine.

I no longer use Saran wrap in the microwave because it causes cancer.

I no longer check the coin return on pay phones because I could be pricked with a needle infected with AIDS.

I no longer use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a water buffalo on a hot day.

I no longer go to shopping malls because someone will drug me with a perfume sample and rob me.

I no longer receive pack…

The Washington Post's Mensa Invitational

Ohmifuckingawd, I actually laughed so hard at this that B got off the couch to come read it over my shoulder...thanks, Billy! :)

The Washington Post's Mensa Invitational once again asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition.

Here are this year's winners:

1. Intaxication: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realise it was your money to start with.

2. Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly

3. Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.

4. Foreploy: Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of getting laid.

5. Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period.

6. Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high.

7. Sarchasm: The gulf between the autho…

The Evolution of Math

Another gem from Chris in my inbox today. Thanks girl! :)

Last week I purchased a burger at Burger King for $1.58. The counter girl took my $2 and I was digging for my change when I pulled 8 cents from my pocket and gave it to her. She stood there, holding the nickel and 3 pennies, while looking at the screen on her register. I sensed her discomfort and tried to tell her to just give me two quarters, but she hailed the manager for help. While he tried to explain the transaction to her, she stood there and cried. Why do I tell you this?

Because of the evolution in teaching math since the 1950's:

Teaching Math in 1950:
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price. What is his profit?

Teaching Math in 1960:
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the
price, or $80. What is his profit?

Teaching Math in 1970:
A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80. Did he
make a profit?

Alcohol warnings

Maybe I should have had these *before* the birthday pub crawl, LOL!

Canadian liquor manufacturers have accepted the "Health Canada's" suggestion that the following warning labels be placed immediately on all varieties of alcohol containers:


WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may leave you wondering what the hell happened to your bra and panties.


WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may make you think you are whispering when you are not.


WARNING: The consumption of alcohol is a major factor in dancing like a retard.


WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may cause you to tell your friends over and over again that you love them.


WARNING: The consumption of alcohol may cause you to think you can si…

What's Your Policitcal Persuasion?

As if this comes as a shock to anyone...

You Are a "Don't Tread On Me" Libertarian

You distrust the government, are fiercely independent, and don't belong in either party.

Religion and politics should never mix, in your opinion... and you feel opressed by both.

You don't want the government to cramp your self made style. Or anyone else's for that matter.

You're proud to say that you're pro-choice on absolutely everything!

What political persuasion are you?

Borrowed from The Cap'n, thanks honey! :)

Okay, menfolks, here's your excuse

Posting without saying anything

I know that I haven't written a personal post in a couple of weeks now and it's been falling under the "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all" rule. I've been deeply embroiled in personal/family drama and just haven't felt like sharing lately.

So here's some good things that have happened in the last week:

I've *finally* been relieved of my team leader status (thank the gods!) and have been moved into a job description that I, myself, designed for me. I will be starting my new duties this morning and I'm all kinds of excited about it! :)

My dad came into town this weekend and I got to hang with him a while. It was really awesome to see the old fart although the visit was far too short.

In other news, I heard a rumor that people are getting fired from their jobs for job blogging...can that be right? It makes me really really hesitant to post job stuff out here cuz I know that I definitely cannot afford to lose my job. Anyone…

Need some tension release?

Thanks to Billy for this link! Just the sound of this actually makes me feel less stressed out...

Speaking before you think

This is the kind of thing that could *so* easily happen to me. Thanks to Chris for sending me this! :)

Have you ever spoken and wished that you could immediately take the words back...or that you could crawl into a hole? Here are the testimonials of a few people who did....

1. I walked into a hair salon with my Husband and three kids in tow and asked loudly, "How much do you charge for a shampoo and a blow job?" I turned around and walked back out and never went back. My husband didn't say a word... he knew better.

2. I was at the golf store comparing different kinds of golf balls. I was unhappy with the women's type I had been using. After browsing for several minutes, I was approached by one of the good-looking gentlemen who works at the store. He asked if he could help me. Without thinking, I looked at him and said, "I think I like playing with men's balls."

3. My sister and I were at the mall and passed by a store that sold a variety of candy and nuts. …

This cracks me up!

Billy sent this to me this morning and I promptly set it as my background and laughed at it all day long. I had to share:
