Thoughts

I think part of a best friend's job is to clear your computer history when you die.

I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

There is a great need for a sarcasm font.

How the hell do you fold a fitted sheet?
Neatly, that is.

MapQuest needs to start their directions at #5. I can find my way out of my own neighborhood.

Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

Bad decisions make good stories.

Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blu-Ray? I really don't want to have to start my collection over. Again.

I hate missing a call by the last ring and when you call back immediately, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail. What did you do when I didn't answer, drop the phone and run away?

It always terrifies me when I exit Windows and it asks if I want to save changes to my document when I didn't make any.

I keep some peoples' phone numbers n my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

I would rather carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than make 2 trips to the car.

How many times is it appropriate to say 'What?' before you just smile and nod because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up to prevent a dick from cutting in at the front. Stay strong brothers and sisters!

Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber every year?

As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation I always hate cyclists.

Sometimes I'll look at my watch 3 times and still not know what time it is.

Even when opportunity knocks you still have to get off your ass and open the door.

Duty, Honor and Courage

Matthew Bradford, Cpl, just re-enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps.

Why is this newsworthy?


Cpl Bradford is a blind double amputee.


Note to Barack Hussein Obama and the young idiot protester who burned the American flag:

THIS young man typifies Duty, Honor and Courage

Wounded Hero: LCpl. Todd Nicely, USMC

From Soldiers' Angels and BLACKFIVE comes the story of multi- amputee, Todd Nicely, Lance Corporal, USMC.


 Semper Fi and Speedy Recovery, Marine!

Asteroid Apocalypse

A newly discovered 71-foot wide asteroid named 2010 GA6 will zip past Earth this evening at about 7:06 pm EDT. At its closest pass, it will be about 223,000 miles from Earth, which is within the orbit of the moon.

Close, but not the asteroid apocalypse. Yet.

President Class-less

I happened to have the news on this morning when Barack Hussein Obama made his daily television appearance, ostensibly to make a comment on the  coal mine explosion in West Virginia, a terrible and deadly disaster with 4 men still missing.

And here comes Barack Hussein Obama, smiling and glad-handing the crowd.

Are his first remarks condolences to the families of the 25 dead miners?
No.

An expression of concern for the missing?
No.


Obummer gives shout-outs to Janet Napolitano and some other government flunky as well as to a childrens' chorus.

He did manage to look subdued when he got around to mentioning the disaster.

Does this arrogant elitist have no clue as to how to behave?

Obummer wants a classless society. He's got a pretty good start on the personally classless part.

No Nukes ... for Us

Barack Hussein Obama is revising our nuclear policy by reducing our nuclear capability and pledging not to use nuclear weapons against most non-nuclear countries ... no matter what they use against us.

No kidding.

Barky Obummer is counting on the good will of our enemies to, you know, follow our example by reducing their weapons stockpiles and not developing or testing new ones. He wants to make nukes obsolete.

So the message this incompetent ass is sending to our enemies is this:


"If any nation wants to attack the United States with chemical, biological, or electromagnetic pulse weapons, it need not fear nuclear retaliation as long as it has no nuclear weapons and abides by the Non Proliferation Treaty. So, as New Yorkers (or Washingtonians, or Atlantans...) are coughing their lungs out from mustard gas or dying in the streets of biological weapons, they will know that their government will not use nuclear weapons to retaliate against their murderers."  Dick Morris

Spring Break at Disney

The hubby and I walk (well, he jogs) almost everyday, sometimes on the treadmill, and sometimes around one of the Disney resorts.

Yesterday we did the 1.1 mile walk around Barefoot Bay at Caribbean Beach.

On my second lap I got caught behind a group of young men who looked to be of High School age, just returning from Lacrosse spring training at ESPN's Wide World of Sports. It's usually annoying to have to 'break stride', but there was an interesting conversation going on between the young fellas regarding one of their girlfriends who, happily for him, is a "squirter".  I wonder if any of their parents know what a squirter is.

Then one of them yelled "duck"! Then they all yelled "duck"! and lined up along the sidewalk. A duck had been spotted at the lake's edge. Now, Disney ducks are certainly in no danger of becoming extinct, but I don't believe in gratuitous duck abuse, so I had to slow down to see what this was all about. By some unknown method, a warrior had been chosen ... he made his way toward the duck ... when he was a few feet away, he flung himself at the duck, and landed face first in the grass ... the duck escaped quacking angrily but unscathed ... and all his teammates/friends laughed mightily. Since most of them had their camera phones out, look for this on 'America's Funniest Videos'.

Continuing my walk, I came up behind a group of 6 females, high school-aged. Their conversation regarded a boy named Hank and a girl named Kaley. Apparently Hank was the speaker's boyfriend but he was interested in Kaley and had suggested a three-some (giggles). Another girl announced that she would be interested in a threesome with Kaley, too (giggles). I wasn't sure if the make-up of this threesome would be Hank-Kaley-her, or Hank's GF-Kaley-her.  Two others suggested that they could join in and make it a fivesome. The last one spoke up saying "No, that would be an orgy" (laughter). They turned off the path towards the pool. It was a good thing Hubby was up ahead because he would've walked into the lake.

So. Parents, you might know where your children are, but I'll bet dollars to doughnuts you don't have a clue as to what they're doing or talking about doing.
