Which is it?

I understand the slang and even appreciate it from time to time. But which is correct and why the different versions? They all seem acceptable but why the variations, I wonder. Maybe it's a geographical thing?

If I weren't feeling so lazy right now I would look for one of those poll thingys. If anyone has a link to get one I'd appreciate if. But for now, I'll just leave this open for comments.

So which do you use, and why?




Or maybe you have yet another to share.

Sing me a Song

Raida has gone and tagged me again. She's tag addicted, that woman!

Choose a band/artist and answer ONLY with the titles of their songs:

1. Are you male or female? Woman are Smarter

2. Describe yourself: Wharf Rat

3. How do some people feel about you? (don't know, you'd really have to ask them)

6. Describe your current significant other: Crazy Fingers

7. Describe where you want to be: Promised Land

8. Describe how you live: Might as Well

Junk Mail Help!


When you get "ads" enclosed with your phone or utility bill, return these "ads" with your payment. Let the sending companies throw their own junk mail away.

When you get those "pre-approved" letters in the mail for everything from credit cards to 2nd mortgages and similar type junk, do not throw away the return envelope.
Most of these come with postage-paid return envelopes, right? It costs them more than the regular 37 cents postage "IF" and when they receive them back.
It costs them nothing if you throw them away! Why not get rid of some of your other junk mail and put it in these cool little, postage-paid return envelopes.

One of Andy Rooney's (60 minutes) ideas.
Send an ad for your local chimney cleaner to American Express. Send a pizza coupon to Citibank. If you didn't get anything else that day, then just send them their blank application back! If you want to remain anonymous, just make sure your name isn't on anything you send them. You can even send the envelope back empty if you want to just to keep them guessing! It still costs them 37 cents.

The banks and credit card companies are currently getting a lot of their own junk back in the mail, but folks, we need to OVERWHELM them. Let's let them know what it's like to get lots of junk mail, and best of all they're paying for it...Twice!

Let's help keep our postal service busy since they are saying that e-mail is cutting into their business profits, and that's why they need to increase postage costs again. You get the idea!

Rest in Peace Proof

SLC of Grateful Dead News has been keeping the Dead and blogging communities updated on all the news related to The Dead for almost 3 years now. And today another young artist is taken from us, shot in the head in a Detroit nightclub.

Earlier this year, Proof was the best man at Eminem's wedding.

Last year, Proof formed his own record label, Iron Fist Records, and released his solo debut, "Searching for Jerry Garcia." The disc landed in stores Aug. 9, the 10th anniversary of The Grateful Dead frontman's death.

"Despite his genius, Jerry Garcia died from drugs, stress and a poor diet," Proof said in a statement issued around the time of the album's release. "At one time or another, we all struggle through one of those things, so in a way, we all have a little Jerry Garcia in us."

Hey, we're all sinners you know!

Greed:Very Low
Gluttony:Very Low
Envy:Very Low
Lust:Very Low
Pride:Very Low
This was fun to take but you know, of course, that you have to be honest - even if cheating isn't one of the seven deadly sins! And I remember telling a blogger that I was stealing this from them when I saw it but darned if I can remember who. If you're out there, step on up and I'll link ya'!

I like coffee, I like France. I like....

Sorry, wrong poem. But as much as this looks like a set up, it isn't. I am just a coffee addict and this is how it happened:

- I begin to set up my evening pot so it is ready when I get up in the morning

- There is not enough in the bag I've been using

- I take out another bag

- It is ground and I want whole bean

- I find a bag of whole bean

- Grind, water, set timer

- Off to bed

This is what I woke up to in the morning. A freshly made pot waiting for me and my addiction staring me in the face. Next time I'll remember to put them back in the fridge.

This is just how it works

I'm at work last week on the phones, as usual since I work in the call center. A guy walks by, never seen him before, a "new hire" and says "It's nice to see that pic of Jerry everyday as I walk through here". Two days later, I'm on the phones and he is leaving for the day. He walks by my cubicle and puts this tape on my desk. "Here's a little something for the ride home". I still don't know his name, still haven't said a word to him. That's just how it works. If I ever get off that phone I'll be sure to go say "hey". Sweet, really sweet!
