I just hate it when this happens

Some assweasel, who thinks he's cute, made a general statement about California.

Okay okay okay okay... maybe I'm being just a little harsh. The poor schmuck dwoofl is in L.A.

All I'm really saying is he should get out a little more. There are quite a few of us here in California who wonder if our votes are even counted.

Oh, yeah, about this Prelutsky guy, he wrote some books. One of them is Liberals: America’s Termites (It’s A Shame that Liberals, Unlike Hamsters, Never Eat Their Young). He really shouldn't make general statements about hamsters, either.

has already been used above. Can you use it in a different context?

I have some advice for Harold Camping. To quote Will Rogers:

Fable of the porcupine

It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold. The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm. This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions. After a while, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen. So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the earth. Wisely, they decided to go back to being together.

They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions in order to receive the heat that came from the others. This way they were able to survive.

The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person's good qualities.

The moral of the story is:
Just learn to live with the Pricks in your life!

It ain't over

Get ready, now, for an onslaught of apocalypse missed jokes.

Everyone's gonna have at least one.

If you haven't got one yet, don't worry.

It's not the end of the world.

Mystery word

is today's mystery V-word.

If nothing else, try using it in a sentence. Heck, try using any of these words in a sentence.

I have a new plan...

Maybe I should wait until after Saturday to implement it?
Maybe I'm just not taking this
let's go camping seriously enough?
No, that's not it. I just know the only things I have any control over are my attitude and my actions. Whatever happens this Saturday is going to happen no matter what I do.

Oh, yeah about my new plan. It's called
V-word of the Day. Instead of having to come up with original material or find good stuff to steal from other blogs, I am going to post an image of one of those captchas that shows up to prevent machine generated comments on blogs. All I ask in return is for you to come up with an original definition or explanation and post it in the comments.

What do you think?

Here's the first one:

They're found


The missing blog posts that went AWOL last week are back. One of them I was able to recreate, so I have deleted the one they found. The other one is right here, where it's is supposed to be. There is a brief note I have added.

I thought it was squirrels

=]V[= coined a new word describing what happened last week to bloggers all over. I'm fairly certain he did it unintentionally. That's the best way.
Blooger is the perfect description of the chaos created by the meltdown in Mountain View, or of the new labels with the funny icons.

Blogger got creative

While they were on hiatus last week Blogger came up with some add-ons for some of the labels we bloggers may (it's our choice) use for posts. Some bloggers actually use them to sort and index their posts, others, who shall remain nameless, to editorialize, still others to credit where they've obtained the material they've used in a post.
So if you've read this far, you might wonder what the heck this is all about. Look below the post, where the really fine print is, where it says labels. That's where the labels with the add-ons are.

It's really too darn bad that Blogger can't find all of the posts they lost!

Sunday, May 15, 2011

Last week another blogger shared this:

Even the simplest of words
can change a person's life

So true.
And that means sometimes my job is to share the words,
and sometimes my job is to listen for them.

Then today this came as part of an email:

With all the jokes and fun that are in e-mails,
sometimes there is one that comes along that
has an important message. This one I thought
I could share with you.

The happiest people don't necessarily
have the best of everything;
they just make
the best of everything they have.

There's something missing

Blogger says they'll get it back. Until then, there's this

I makes perfect sense to an engineer

So now suddenly this appeared in the lineup of scheduled posts. If it hadn't, I would have forgotten all about it and you'd all have been much better off for the experience. This was originally to appear on Friday morning, but things got Bloogered.

Sure Happy It's Thursday



Today's thought

From a friend:
"Religion is man trying to show God how great they are, spirituality is man allowing God to show how great HE is.......... Just saying"

happy hump day every one

So =]V[= created a badge


He was concerned about the proliferation of distaff blogs and felt there should be a way for "us guys" to identify ourselves. Well, I thought his plan was a fine one except for one minor detail. He was seeking refinement, too. I only care to establish a presence. Consequently I made a minor modification to his badge.
The best part is that there was absolutely no financial consideration... nada, none, zilch!

This is his work...

...mine's on the sidebar. It links back to his blog... for now.

What I said before

I think I definitely need sensitivity training.

The most politically incorrect thing I could find:

All mini-marts, convenience stores and motels will be closed this week, due to a death in the family!!

I didn't necessarily find it... it found me...

...along with this

Happy Mothers Day

Someone said I need sensitivity training...

An Englishman, a Scotsman, an Irishman, a Latvian, a Chinese, a Japanese, a Kiwi, a Canuck, an Eskimo, a Fijian, a Turk, an Aussie, a Yank, an Egyptian, a Spaniard, a Mongolian, a Tibetan, a Polack, a Japanese, a Mexican, a Spaniard, a Greek, a Russian, an Estonian, a German, an Indian, an Italian, a Brazilian, a Kenyan, a South African, a Filipino, a Pakistani, a Korean, a Argentinean, a Lithuanian, a Dane, a Finn, a Swede, an Israeli, a Romanian, a Bulgarian, a Serb, a Czech, and a Swiss man go to a pub.

The bouncer says, "Sorry. I can't let you in without a Thai."

This video may... or may not... actually play. I honestly don't much care. It was enough to distract me from the antics at the White House, Ground Zero, and now at Ft Campbell.

The pressure's on again

So last month I did a parallel posting thing, chasing alongside those who were participating in the A to Z Challenge. What that meant was I only had to come up with a topic of my own on four different occasions. The rest of the month I only had to figure out how to use the designated letter of the day.
Now that it's over, I can't look ahead and post several days worth of post all at once. I have to be more or less spontaneous... or not post at all.

"The Late Osama"

After dying a grisly death in a fire fight, Osama
made his way to the pearly gates. There, he was
greeted by George Washington. "How dare you
attack the nation I helped conceive!" yelled
Washington, slapping Osama in the face.

Patrick Henry came up from behind, "You wanted
to end the American's liberty, so they gave you
death!" Henry punched Osama in the nose.

James Madison came next and said, "This is why I
allowed the government to provide for the common
defense!" He took a sledge hammer and whacked
Osama's knees.

Osama was subject to similar beatings from John
Randolph, James Monroe and 67 other people who
had the same love for liberty and America. As he
writhed on the ground, Thomas Jefferson hurled him
back toward the gate where he was to be judged.

As Osama awaited his journey to his final very hot
destination, he screamed, "This is not what I was

An angel replied, "I told you there would be 72
Virginians waiting for you. What did you think
I said?"
