Good God, no!

Absoulutely not.

If I am, I am unaware of it.

Not yet.
7. Are you in therapy? If not, should you be? If so, is it helping?
Not at the moment.
8. Do you delete mean comments? Do you fake nice ones?
No and No (but how do you fake nice ones?)
9. Have you ever rubbed one out while reading a blog? How about after?
I don’t know what you mean by this.

I plead the 5th!

What is he, your FATHER!

I woke up this morning to nothing too unusual. The normal construction of late sounds the 7:15 alarm. Have some coffee, go pee. Uh..........no water. Call the landlord. No answer. Leave message. An hour later I get the call back. "I have my plumber there blah, blah, blah". YOUR plumber. You're like 20 years old taking messages for a 25 year old who takes messages for the landlord. YOUR plumber! Give me a break! No, just give me MY water and get over yourself!

"Old Folks Boogie!"

"So you know, that you're over the hill, when your mind makes a promise that your body can't fill."

And that, my friends, is Little Feat!

Fortunately, for both myself and the band members, we are not there yet!

I got me some! I got me some!

Well, actually I should say "My sister got me some! My sister got me some!" I went over to the house, saw my pyrex dish on the dining room table with the weekly coupons in it and right there on top.......THERE THEY WERE! I was so excited. Now, what to do with them...............hm. My mind is in a quandry right now. For the moment, I'll just cherish them. Thanks Janet! I love ya, man! (Hey, now that I think of it, you DID have a Doctor's appointment this week!)

I really, really want a pair

I was waiting for an exam today and saw a box of these in the room. I loved the color and was so tempted but just couldn't bring myself to slipping a pair in my pocket. I couldn't help but be curious. Why were they purple? So, I asked the Doc and she said "They have no laytex." Turns out they are for people with allergies to it. I don't care. I still want them. I have no idea what I would do with them but I want them. I may have to go back and just ask for a pair.

Blowin' Up

There's this website/blog called "Blowin' Up Worldwide". Pics of folks in the "Ta-Da", look at me pose. Anyway, I submitted this photo just because, well, I'm just playin'. They posted it in the "With Chicks" gallery. I actually think these guys are on to something!
(Sorry and thanks to the blogger who posted this site. I can't remember where I got it!)

How could you not laugh?

I'm not really in the habit of posting other people's pics but some things just HAVE to be done. This guy must have a blast driving from location to location. What a great way to break up the day!
