What Brady are you?

What Brady are you?: "

That’s actually reassuring. I got tired of always being Cindy. I guess I’m moving up in life. ;)

You Are Jan Brady
Brainy and a little introverted, you tend to think life is a lot worse than it actually is.
And while you may think you’re a little goofy looking, most people consider you to be a major babe.

Friday Funnies

Friday Funnies: "

Dear Abby hasn’t answered these

Dear Abby admitted that she was at a loss to answer the following:

Dear Abby,
A couple of women moved in across the hall from me. One is a middle-aged gym teacher and the other is a social worker in her mid twenties. These two women go everywhere together and I’ve never seen a man go into or leave their apartment. Do you think they could be Lebanese?

Dear Abby,
What can I do about all the Sex, Nudity, Fowl Language and Violence on My VCR?

Dear Abby,
I have a man I can’t trust. He cheats so much, I’m not even sure the baby I’m carrying is his.

Dear Abby,
I’ve suspected that my husband has been fooling around, and when confronted with the evidence, he denied everything and said it would never happen again.

Dear Abby,
I joined the Navy to see the world. I’ve seen it. Now how do I get out?

Dear Abby,
My forty year old son has been paying a psychiatrist $50.00 an hour every week for two and a half years. He must be crazy.

Dear Abby,
I was married to Jack for three months and I didn’t know he drank until one night he came home sober.

Dear Abby,
My mother is mean and short tempered I think she is going through mental pause.

Sometimes there just aren’t any words! I used to think being a Dear Abby type would be an awesome job. After reading through some of these, I’m not so sure!

It’s the last Friday in February so that means Spring and warmer weather is just around the corner! Have an awesome weekend and don’t forget to smile. Remember, you just might spread sunshine to someone going through mental pause. ;)

Thursday Thankfulness

Thursday Thankfulness: "

image Some weeks it gets a little difficult, trying to find things to be grateful for. Little things, I mean. I am always grateful for the big things, like life, My Lord, my husband, and children. These posts are intended to find the little things in life to be thankful for, the things we tend to overlook because they’re so mundane and ordinary. And I was really struggling this week until my nose started to run. Do you know how awesome tissue is?

I remember old movies, when the heroine would start to cry, and the hero would hand her a hanky and she would delicately dab under her eye. I remember my father carried a handkerchief in his pocket, along with a wallet and a pocket knife. That’s what men did. Ladies carried a hanky in their purse or sweater pocket.

And how gross is that, really? Sure, I’d love to walk around with used snot rags on my person! EWWWW!!

Disposable tissue is a wonderful invention – throw those germy things away when you’re done! I try to keep tissue boxes all around the house, and not just in the bathroom. When you sneeze, you sneeze where you are – who runs to the bathroom to sneeze? So you’ll find them on the desk, by the couch, the nightstands, and anywhere else we might congregate. You can’t hold a sneeze or a runny nose – especially kids! And I like to be prepared. Yep, should have been a Boy Scout. As it was, I was a Brownie, but that’s for another post.

Now-a-days, some tissue has lotion in it. It really is amazingly gentle on sore noses if you haven’t tried them yet. No, you can’t use them to wipe you eyeglasses, but for your nose, they’re heavenly.

Sometimes I wonder, how did mankind survive without disposable tissue until the early 20th century? No wonder we were so sick all the time! We probably didn’t survive as well as we could have, that’s for sure. How many people have avoided sickness in the last 100 years, thanks to the handy dandy tissue? The world will never know.

But I, for one, am sure glad we have them!

The Internet Will

The Internet Will: "

Most of the respondents also said the Internet would improve reading and writing by 2020

from – The Internet Will Make You Smarter

I saw the headline, and read the article, and really, I laughed out loud. That’s sort of a big deal for me, because it’s kind of a running joke between my husband, my friend Sherri, and myself, that I rarely laugh out loud. I’ll shake, silently. I don’t like my laugh but there are moments when I just can’t hold it back and I bust out in guffaws. So when I tell you I laughed out loud, that’s a big deal. :) And that article made me laugh. Out loud.

I saw the “improve reading and writing” line and the thought that went through my head was this: “R U 4realz?” I’ve seen what’s been happening to reading and writing since the Internet came around and it’s not improvement. Both Darc and I have spent a lot of time bemoaning the state of language today, and as a writer, Darc laments the closings of bookstores as much as I as a reader do. I’ve seen how the LOLcats are changing our language – not that I’m not guilty of contributing in my own way – and I’ve seen l33tspeak, and the myriad ways in which our reading, writing, and speaking, are being dumbed down by the Internet. No one wants to take the time to write “too” anymore so they’ll just write “2”. So many people don’t understand the differences between to, too, and two. Or they’re, there, and their. Or heck, even sometimes you, ewe, and U. Do they know what the difference is between your and you’re? If the Internet is supposed to make us smarter, how come we seem so much more stupid, as a whole, than before? The things I learned about language I learned as a little kid, way back in the day before there were such things as home computers and common Internet. Before the “Information Superhighway,” which, IMO, (see what I mean?) has just as much disinformation as it does information.

So I categorically disagree. The Internet will not make us smarter. It’s school and a good education that makes us smarter. Things like reading, writing, arithmetic and learning good critical thinking skills. The Internet can facilitate those things, but usually doesn’t. LOLcats, you know. ;)

Tuesday Tootsies

Tuesday Tootsies: "

My friend Bryce sent me this picture the other day – I have no idea where he got it but I love it! Thanks Bryce! He inspired me to go looking for other “animal” shoes.

Check out the heel – it’s a revolver! How creative is that?


Then I found these cow feet … hooves, whatever! They also had a version without the strap.


And if you ever want to rob a place, wear these so they can’t trace your shoe print. This ought to really fool those CSI types! ;) LOL


Or, you know, if you want to go with the whole “raised by a pack of wolves thing” you could wear these instead. ;)


As always, click the pics for links

Wow. Now even I think this is taking footwear to an extreme!
