Jokes about men :)

Thanks to my friend Kristen from work for these...they're good for a giggle. :)


She's sitting at the table with her gourmet coffee.
Her son is on the cover of the Wheaties box.
Her daughter is on the cover of Business Week.
Her boyfriend is on the cover of Playgirl.
And her husband is on the back of the milk carton.


"Cash, check or charge?" I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase. As she fumbled for her wallet I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse. "So, do you always carry your TV remote?" I asked. "No," she replied, "but my husband refused to come shopping with me, and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally."


I know I'm not going to understand women. I'll never understand how you can take boiling hot wax pour it onto your upper thigh, rip the hair out by the root, and s…

Happy birthday, my love!

Happy XXX my baby! I love you more than chocolate! *smooch*

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone! Love you guys!

15 Things You Probably Never Knew or Thought About

This came from Mary buried in one of those chain letters that I refuse to forward. Still though, I liked this list and thought it worthy of posting. :)

1. At least 5 people in this world love you so much they would die for you.

2. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.

3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.

4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.

5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.

6. You mean the world to someone.

7. If not for you, someone may not be living.

8. You are special and unique.

9. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.

10. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it.

11. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely turned your back on the world.

12. When you think you have no chance of getting what you want, you probably won't get it, but if you believe in yourself, …

What *is* this hour of the morning??

I was rudely awakened at 5 am because a bottle of Gatorade decided that it had lost its will to live and jumped off the shelf in the pantry onto the large bag of kitty litter. It survived the fall and is first in line to be consumed, but the noise awakened me and I couldn't get back to sleep. Gives me time for some blogging this morning. :)

Barry's birthday is rapidly approaching along with a super busy month-end at work. I've got a *very* full week ahead of me! The jury's still out on what my baby wants for his birthday...I think he's leaning toward some new ink, possibly a cover up of an old tat that he's never really liked. I'm working on a new music mix for him but am not sure it will be finalized in time for the actual birthday. Ah well, we'll be celebrating for at least a week so it'll give him something to look forward to. ;-) I'm getting seriously excited about the upcoming camping trip and can't *wait* to get out into some nature. I&…

2004 Darwin Awards :)

Gods, I *so* love these. Thanks Bitchy Girl! :)

You all know about the Darwin Awards. These are annual honors given to people who did the gene pool a service by mutilating or killing themselves in the most extraordinarily stupid ways. Last year's winner was the fellow who attempted to wash his own 'balls' in a ball washer at the local golf course.

As always, competition has been keen. Below is a list of the candidates including memorable candidates, Honorable Mention, Runners-Up and the Winner. Remember, most of these people were or still vote in elections:

* According to police in Windsor, Ontario, Daniel Kolta, 27, and Randy Taylor, 33, died in a head-on collision, thus earning a tie in the game of chicken they were playing with their Snowmobiles.

* In Detroit, a 41-year-old man got stuck and drowned in two feet of water after squeezing head first through an 18-inch-wide sewer grate to retrieve his car keys.

* A 49-year-old San Francisco stockbroker, who "totally zon…

Wrongest coloring book ever!

Thanks to my buddy Rob for this prepared, it's quite wrong but very very funny!

Talking clock :)

A little funny from my inbox compliments of Thia. Thanks honey! :)

A drunk was proudly showing off his new apartment to a couple of his friends late one night. When they made it to the bedroom, they saw a big brass gong next to the bed.

"What's a big brass gong doing in your bedroom?" one of the guests asked.

"It's not a gong. It's a talking clock," the drunk replied.

"A talking clock? Seriously?" asked his astonished friend.

"Yup," replied the drunk.

"How's it work?" the friend asked, squinting at it.

"Watch," the drunk replied. He picked up the mallet, gave it an ear-shattering pound, and stepped back. The three stood looking at one another for a moment.

Suddenly, someone on the other side of the wall screamed, "You asshole, it's three o'clock in the morning!"

Lots of news, Part 2

It seems that my life is moving so fast in the last couple of weeks that I can't seem to get it all down before a million other things happen! :)

First things first: I've added the links to Barry's blog and the band's stuff on my sidebar. Fyi, if you're going to try and put a comment on B's blog, he prefers not to have his real name out there...please call him Baz or B instead. Ah, the life of a rock star. ;-)

On the link/sidebar subject, I'm not happy with the fact that there's a little arrow *and* a bullet showing on my link lists. Also, I cannot for the life of me figure out why my "Other Blogs I Read" header is now indented. I'm sure it's there in the code somewhere but I cannot seem to find it. If anyone has any input on this tech issue, please let me know!

I've posted the pix from last Sunday with the kids out on Shutterfly:

Kid Pix!

Heh, after some trying, I finally got all of them except Austin (and Tabitha who only graced us wi…

Lots of news :)

Wow, it's only been a week but it seems like a lot has happened since I last posted here! Let's see if I can get it all down...

Last Thursday a friend of mine from work (who also happens to be a local dj of some renown) came over after work and then went to the club with us. It's totally a small world because it turns out that this guy and I actually were regulars at the same showing of Rocky Horror when I was in high school and he was in college. We couldn't resist the urge to watch the movie before going out, and it was *awesome* to have another person on the planet who knows the same screamers as I do. I'm now morally obligated to gather the old Rocky gang and get an outing together! Teehee, it's like we're already old friends even though we just met each other.

Very few of our nearest and dearest were at the club Thursday but we still had a terrific time. I dressed all crazy-goth for Ken for his birthday and danced like a maniac. I officially danced until…

Guess I'm a smart girl...or an English Nazi, one. :)

I just took the The Commonly Confused Words Test and here's how I scored:


You scored 100% Beginner, 93% Intermediate, 93% Advanced, and 72% Expert!

You have an extremely good understanding of beginner, intermediate, and advanced level commonly confused English words, getting at least 75% of each of these three levels' questions correct. This is an exceptional score. Remember, these are commonly confused English words, which means most people don't use them properly. You got an extremely respectable score.

Other statistics:

*Compared to users who took the test and are and in your age group:
*100% had lower Beginner scores.
*100% had lower Intermediate scores.
*100% had lower Advanced scores.
*100% had lower Expert scores.
*With respect to Beginner, users aged 55 to 59 scored highest.
*With respect to Intermediate, users aged 55 to 59 scored highest.
*With respect to Advanced, users aged 55 to 59 scored highest.
*With respect to Expert, users aged 55 to 59 scored highest.

Happy birthday, Dad!

Today is my dad's birthday and I'm actually going to get to see him for a change. He'll be rolling in to town around 5ish and staying until early next week...woohoo! I'm sure I won't be adding anything here until he goes home so hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! :)

Birthday wishes :)

I've got a couple of birthdays to acknowledge this morning:

First: My stepmom, Melanie. Truly a wonderful woman, she's been a mom-person to me since I was an 8-year-old, awkward, dorky kid. She's awesome and I love her to death!

Second: My buddy, Ken. Not sure whether I should say happy or unhappy birthday since Ken's the Ubergoth. Either way, I'm trying to find a good traditionally gothic outfit to wear tonite in his honor. ;-)

Happy birthday, you guys! Lots of love!


A funny from my inbox, thanks to Toni. LOL!

This is a reasonably good example of how the scientific application of NUMEROLOGY can use coincidence to make nonsense of reality. From a strictly mathematical viewpoint it goes like this:

What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life?

Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:

represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.


8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%


11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%


1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%


2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.

1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%


Danzig Tuesday :)

My baby is at the Danzig show tonight so I'm getting my weekly Jen time. This works out perfectly for us because he's getting to see someone play that he's wanted to see since he was in high school, and I don't have to bow out of any social events this week to have a little time to myself. Ah, life is good. :)

Just a little plug really quick for my soundtrack this evening:

It's just about the only independent (i.e. *not* owned and operated by the evil radio empire known as Clear Channel who's come in and completely ruined Dallas radio) station left in the Metroplex. Anyway, check it out...they really do play what they want. :)

I've tried to make a couple of phone calls tonight but to no avail so here I sit typing instead...

Last weekend was as fun as I had hoped it would be. The new club downtown (Episodes) was a great space with a fantastic dance floor and we had a terrific time with Heika and Bryan. I even got to dance a little bit…

Yankee or Dixie?

Thanks to Matt for finding this quiz! My score is this:

80% (Dixie). That is a pretty strong Southern score!

Teehee, ya think? It's not like I'm 4th generation Texan or anything, LOL!

Stuff and nonsense

I'm carrying on this themed thread that I stole from Matt cuz it's silly and kinda funny...

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your Blog along with these instructions.
5. Don’t you dare dig for that “cool” or “intellectual” book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.

Boq tried to fan in himself an interest in Shenshen or Pfannee, who certainly were coquettish enough. But they both seemed besotted with Avaric.

At last Boq cornered Galinda on the porch and pleaded with her to talk with him.
Just so everyone knows, this quote is from the book 'Wicked' which is a very entertaining story about the life of the Wicked Witch of the West. :)

Showing my age??

So, I have a guilty admission to make. I've become addicted to this *cheesy* radio station's "Super 70s Weekend" and have listened to it for the last two weekends. I swear that this has got to be Barry's fault for having several hours of That 70's Show on every day after we get home from work...I believe it's making me relive my childhood. Whatever the reason, I share this evil with all of you. Anyone can listen at:

They will play nothing but 70s tunes from Friday night until Sunday night. Be afraid, be *very* afraid. Now if I could just find a trash disco night to go to, I'd be all set! LOL!

Ahhhh, Jen night!

I've finally figured out the down side to Barry and I having the same schedule: neither of us gets any personal space or time to themselves. Now that I've identified the problem, I'm going to start scheduling Jen time for myself and all will be well. It *is* kind of hard to plan a birthday event with the birthday boy in constant attendance, LOL! Maybe I'll start skipping the club every other week and take Jen time...hrmmmm...things to ponder. :)

I'm already being challenged at work which makes me very happy indeed. Our fledgling department is starting to get a groove and I'm getting trained to be an escrow assistant. One of our assistants had to take a couple of days off because she got strep throat, so I'm trying to cover her desk for her until she comes back. I think the hardest part is not trying to learn the job itself, but trying to figure out how this girl runs her desk and hopefully not screwing up her system. She's supposed to be back tomorrow (a…
