IT'S HAPPY DANCE FRIDAY! (and you thought it was going to be "D" day didn't ya?)

but WAIT, it is, DANCE!!!!! duh!'

And here's some dances I found that start with "D":

The Doppio : double meter Renaissance dance step

The Ductia : vigorous stamping dance

The Dump : obsolete English dance in 4/4 time (wonder why it's obsolete??????)
(I mean really....would you really want to dump with a partner?, Excuse me would you care to dump? Dumping the night away, Dumping in the Streets, Let's Dump)
So get those feet moving and dump the weekend away.
Now for some feed back here: I have a friend, my Twinhead, who is getting married next year and she needs a song for her first dance......Please submit your suggestions here....include the name of the song....the artist...and sing a few bars......thanks so much.......(this is joking please....). Has to be romantic and memorable.

Here's the "C" word: (ha ha).......

Clepsydra - A water clock (at least 15th century BC, probably earlier)

The drip-drop of a clepsydra was an ancient precursor of the tick-tock of modern clocks.
Without going into all the detail of the machinations of this gadget because I'm doing this to have fun, not get a headache, apparently it was not used to tell time in terms of the earth's rotation. It could only measure pre-determined periods such as the time alloted for a speech in court.

Wow, so does this mean if I drink water all day at work, I'll run out of time? And, hell, if you start measuring my talking in drip drops...there may not be enough water for all of us!
Looks like a lose, lose situation......drip by drip, drop by drop.

"Like drops through a clepsydra, so are the drips of our lives"

My methods used in selecting the words are very scientific. Sometimes I just open the dictionary to A, or B, or whatever letter I'm using and I point. Or if using the computer I go to the "Dictionary" for the letter of the day and LQQK.... (I refer to it as my "point or look" method, p/l for short) and if I see a word that strikes my fancy, I go with matter what the meaning. Today's word was picked using the former method. I promised myself that even if I didn't like the word, I was going with it. So here's word, starting with the letter B, since it's my second day and B is the second letter of the alphabet! (wow, I'm so smart, and logical, sometimes I amaze myself) :

BORDURE - "a border surrounding a heraldic shield"
As you can see in the picture displayed, the "man" is holding a "shield". Whether it's a heraldic shield we don't know and if it is you cannot see the bordure because it's facing backwards away from the viewer. But you can see the man can't you? He's got nice legs, doesn't he?
PS.....I would like to add this word, or name, if you my "B" entry....BONO! as in U2, as in "It's a Beautiful Day" (my theme song)..... I saw them coming out of Border's Book Store yesterday on my way home from work yesterday! They were there for a book signing..!!! I tried to take pics with my camera phone...but all I got was their limo......I'll post it at a later date......Just thought that was so cool....and yes Bono was very accomodating to his fans....gave autographs to all who asked.....I didn't cause i was across the street.....I know this sounds silly, but I love star sightings! (That's one of the reasons I got a camera phone).. ;-)

-Aboospore -
a spore produced from an unfertilized female gamete (cf. azygospore & parthenospore)
(Btw a gamete is a cell that functions in sexual reproduction by merging with another gamete to form a
zygote. Examples of gametes include sperm and egg cells. In most organisms, the gametes are haploid (they contain half the number of chromosomes of the parent), owing to reduction division or meiosis.)

Ok, I picked my first word that begins with an 'a'. That's it up there. I thought it sounded rather Halloweenish, having to do with ghosts. That's why i picked it. For no other reason! It figures it has something to do with sexual reproduction. I swear I just chose it randomly! (hmm, I wonder if there's a subliminal message there?)

I like my idea of a definition better. Here, I'll even use it in a sentence: A boo's spore must be scrubbed daily in order to obtain their luminescent, milky appearance. (Well, that's what my dermetologist recommends I do every day too!) So there you have "A" word.

Distraction Time

Because I am easily distracted during my mind wanders to thinking of what I'm going to post about on my blog....(yeah I know..I need to be put away). But that's besides the point. I've been thinking, besides putting together snippets of cell phone conversations, which I'm recording in my "cell phone log (I call it my cplog) each morning, that I'm going to pick a word out of the dictionary, starting with the letter A, and do a post on it.....not necessarily what the word means, but what it brings to mind....or not. :-)



IT'S MONDAY.......................AARRGGHH!!!!!!!!!!!

It's ok tho....had a wonderful weekend. Nice and relaxing. So Aarrgghh Monday is not so bad to face today.

Hope your weekend was as wonderful.

The Meme Challenge

Heartinsanfrancisco (link to the right--->) was err, kind enough to tag me to take the "meme" challenge and publicize to the whole wide world ten (10) secrets about myself.....(ok one of them is that I exaggerate.....but so what).

The term "meme" (IPA: [miːm], not "mem"), coined in 1976 by Richard Dawkins, refers to a unit of cultural information that can be transmitted from one mind to another.

So here goes:

1. I've always thought this: "My life is an open book" and I'll tell you anything you want to know about me. When I saw that Heart had tagged me for this "challenge", I realized there are things I really don't want you to know about me.

2. I usually don't admit my age anymore. I had, in the past, considered that age didn't much matter, but I'm at that age where it does! (to me).

3. I don't visit Mom as often as I tell people I do. (Mom's in a Nursing Home. She's been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.)

4. When my brother died last year, I didn't feel anything. My heart went out to his children tho. I'm working on forgiving myself and him for all the wrongs that were done over the course of our lives.

5. One of my favorites sayings is "It's never too late". But sometimes it is.

6. When I was small, I, like Heart, had and incident with my Mom's dresses and scissors! I got a pair of "Snippy" scissors for my birthday and went all around the house "snipping" everything these "safe" scissors could cut. My Mom had a black sheer cocktail dress hanging above the bedroom door that she intended to wear that evening and as I was walking by I "snipped" the bottom of the dress (oops, I really was surprised that the scissors actually cut it!). She was so upset, she cried and couldn't figure out what happened. I never told her.
I also threw all her "toilet water" down the toilet, at the urging of my brother. Well? Isn't that what it was for???

7. I actually have a fear of all new situations and meeting new people (something I must do every day at my job), although you'd never know it if you met me. I have a mantra that I learned during my hippie days that helps me every time, and its this: "Oh what the fuck, go for it anyway".
8. I have a tatoo! I just got it last month. It's not a secret here, since I did a post about it, but I have kept it secret from some family members and from the job.

9. I really want a job where all I have to do is say: "You want fries with that"???

9 1/2. I'm a closet carboholic.

10. I don't live with my husband anymore.. I left him. Although my close friends and family know, I have not divulged this at work (for a variety of reasons), which makes for difficult conversation at times.

So there ya go.........and......guess who I'm tagging?????

JUST D, of Boondoggled fame, and Laugh More, Love More, of My Heart Hearts fame.....;-)

Relaxing music,


Good food,




Cool breezes,

I'll Take Tahiti

Ahhhh, breathing a "so glad it's Saturday sigh"! It's raining here tho......and I'm sitting here dreaming that I'd rather be in Tahiti......As much as I said I love the Fall, and I do, really....I also need a vacation.....a real where I can just lay on the beach all day. That's it! Is that asking for too much.....(but it's gotta be in Tahiti!)

Pigged Out

In spite of the fact that it's Happy Dance Friday, I don't think I could dance even if my life depended on it today....I can't move! I feel like a lead balloon. That's because yesterday we went to the San Gennero Feast in Little Italy in downtown NYC. Blocks and blocks of sausage and peppers, zeppoli stands, pizza, mozzerelli, funnel cakes, macaroni, pepperoni, roni roni......Nothing tastes better than eating at this feast! The day was a perfect fall day...sun was breeze....started out with lots of energy....ended up, like I said, feeling like a lead balloon.....that's what zeppolies(zeppoli? zeppaloni?) will do to you!! Brought some home too...heated them up after dinner.....ate more! Now, can't move....can barely type....can't work! But it was sooo worth it!!!!! Yum!



Bossa nova, ballroom, bunny hop, barn dance, belly dance, break dance, boogie woogie, bop.

A slow walk on a dimly lit street

Sorry, repost...but one so worth Enjoy!

I'm walking down a dimly lit street. Only one street lamp adds a glimmer of light. Once focussed my eyes see where I'm going. People appear as shadows, sometimes alarming me! I walk slowly, deliberately, stopping every few feet, waiting, sometimes for s few seconds, sometimes a few minutes. I am very patient. No need to hurry. I carry a bag with me as I move along. I'm going to need it. I move along now. Down to the corner and turn. I feel safer here. There's more light. More traffic. More noise. More green grass for lil feet to run through. And then, it happens!!!!! I bend over with the bag in my hand and scoop up the poop. ;-)

Sorry, But I Just Had to.......


Anti sunshine

September: it was the most beautiful of words, he’d always felt, evoking orange-flowers, swallows, and regret.- Alexander Theroux, 1981

'Tis the last rose of summer,Left blooming alone;All her lovely companionsAre faded and gone.
- Thomas Moore, The Last Rose of Summer, 1830

It's getting near that time of the year when I'll be leaving for work in the dark and coming home in the dark. Since yesterday's post was about sunshine, today is all about anti sunshine! that sinister period when the days start getting shorter and it gets more and more difficult to rise and "shine". Altho I do like the early morning (I'm a morning person) and I sure enjoy the quietude of it all, having the sun with me while I travel to work is something surely to be missed.

Oh well....I guess I have to give that up to get the cool breezes of the fall! Happy Fall to Y'all!

A lil sunshine for all those who must work in cubicles
Keep smiling!!!

Fried sneakers

I did take a walk by the ocean yesterday. Water is my serenity and I sure needed that more than I needed to sit at home and do the work I brought home with me. Just looking out over the water and feeling the salted mist on my face does something that a year spent in therepy wouldn't do. I'm serious about that. But, be that as it may, the universe, I believe, was trying to tell me something.....(that maybe I should have stayed home and worked). My walk included collecting rocks........I use them as "book" rocks. They have to be a certain size, 6,7,or 8 inches across X 3 inches, and MUST have a flat bottom. I take them home and paint them or decoupage them.....and give them away as presents. BOOK ROCKS.....I use them to keep my book open while I'm sitting at my desk or at a table if I happen to be eating. That way I have both hands free. Pretty nifty huh? and yeah there's no patent on it so you can steal my idea....good luck! But anyway....I stopped to sit on a rock and "gaze" out over the water....not necessarily looking at anything in particular... just I'm playing in the sand with my foot..digging a lil hole......when all of a sudden...I feel a hot sensation! I stop my "gazing"....and look down and realize that someone must have been grilling on the beach and dumped their hot coals right at the spot I decided to sit down by! Yeah Yeah....great! Hot coals and sand kind of cancel each other I didn't even see it! Now...besides having tomato pants, I have bbq'ed sneakers!!!!!!


Aarrrggghhh MONDAY


Sorry but I have no control over it...(still waiting for that calander change promised by a certain someone to change Mondays to Fundays)....

Let's just all hope that as we all start a new week that our adventures be happy, fulfilling, appreciative. Focus on the little things that give us joy. Have a great week....see you in la la land later!

Decisions, Decisions

Oh this is not my typical weekend....I actually brought work home to do! I never do that...but I have to get ready for something really important on Tuesday and wanted to have some quiet time without all those office interuptions going on to prepare for it. How much do you want to bet that I actually get done what I planned on doing??? In the meantime, I'm washing my tomato splattered pants...too bad I wasn't sprayed by a skunk...I would have killed two birds with one can of tomatoes. Ha Ha HA HA HA.....And besides today is too beautiful to spend indoors....It's warm and sunny and I think the world needs me out there today. Maybe I'll get out there and take a walk on the beach if only to clear my head of my traumatic tomato sauce encounter and think about something to blog about later! Yeah! That sounds like a better plan. Peace

Just Another Day :-)

Today was one of those ho-hum days. I suppose some people would refer to them as "normal". You know, those days where errands get run, laundry gets washed, meals get cooked for the week, rugs get vacuumed, lawns get mowed, leaves get raked, etc. etc. etc. As I sit here and ponder what to blog about I come up with a blank....Nothing struck me particularly funny today and as you know, I do like to laugh....not even when I dropped the jar of tomato sauce at the grocery store and it splattered up over my beige pants and everyone thought i fell through a glass window or something and was bleeding to death.....and had to finish my shopping looking as if I just encountered an ax murderer.....(oh well those pants needed to be washed anyway)~~~

Hope your day was better.......

Thanks for sharing

I've shared somewhere on here before about cell phones and personal space and if you talk on your cell phone in my "space" your conversation is now my conversation and I get to look at you, listen and even comment! And if you get annoyed, duh, hang up or don't use the phone while sitting next to me on the train. I think I'll keep a log of these. Here's one from this morning:
Man in suit and tie with briefcase, Indian accent, late twenties:
"She got me sooo stressed out this morning. I don't need to be stressed out! Doesn't she know that I am the alpha male! I am the king of the pride! I need to be alone when i cry! It's a sign of weakness for a male to cry. I am the king of the pride!! I am the alpha male!"
I wanted to give the guy a standing ovation...but thought better of it....didn't want to make him cry!


Thank Heaven its HAPPY DANCE FRIDAY!!
Come on now, let's dance into the weekend and have some fun doing it and that's an Odat order!!!!

And The Survey Says........

I stayed up all night crunching numbers to determine the results of yesterday's survey. The results are in: (drum roll please).........

Six (6 )out of eight(8) would prefer to visit Paris over Graceland! Ta da! One (1) for Graceland, and one (1) noncommittal.

(By the way, there is absolutely no logic in asking y'all to participate in this survey. It came about as a result of some comments I saw on another blog. and besides, I love nonsense!)

Oh, I myself, prefer Paris. Its one of the many world cities I have yet to visit. I hear it has great cafes, shopping, museums, all of which I can get in NYC, but somehow doing it in Paris seems much more romantic .......I think that no matter what one does in Paris it'll be romantic (even stepping in the dog poop i hear is all over the streets)...So much history too. Les Miserables is even my favorite play.
I Love Paris in the Springtime.... April in Paris......Moonlight Over Paris....Last Mango in Paris.

As a result of your participation in this survey you are hereby awarded ODAT's Happy Dance Friday coupon award. You can hang it on your wall. It's very pretty..not to mention framed and matted in your chose of colors. Very nice. Once you collect ten Odats, you're entitled to one moment of Happy Dance Friday any day of the week! Nice huh? and the person who chose Graceland gets the booby prize...... ;-)

Ok commit me now.........I think I need help.

Paris,(the city, not Hilton) or Presley?

Survey Time:

Would you rather visit Paris or Graceland and why?

Anthony Edward Gallagher

A Small Tribute to Two Heros

There's a hole in the sky where the towers once stood
Doorways now to heaven?
2996 spirits souring....
Leaving holes in our hearts and tears on our souls forever.

Here's the stories of two of those who left us that day...I wish their families and friends love, hoping they have found peace within their hearts, praying they have learned to smile again. These two men,
Laurence M. Polatsch and Anthony Edward Gallagher
, whose stories follow, and whom I did not know, sounded as if they would want those left behind to live like there's no tomorrow.....they did...and they didn't even realize what was coming their way that day. May we all live that way...and may we all find it in our hearts to smile at someone today and look that person in the eye and let them know they're loved, for we never know.


Anthony Edward Gallagher

Student of Teenage Culture

He called it his 4 o'clock conference call. It happened every Friday afternoon.That was when Anthony Gallagher placed the call to the Adamses , Katie, Liz and Jay. Sometimes Peter Adams might participate, but he was only 7. Mr. Gallagher would start off, "What's up?" and they'd go from there.

Mr. Gallagher, 41, an energy broker at Cantor Fitzgerald, handled a lot of important phone calls during his workdays, but none meant more to him than his weekly conference call to his nieces and nephews, the 15-year-old twins, Katie and Liz, and 13- year-old Jay.

Mr. Gallagher had only recently married, at the age of 40, and during his bachelor days he had cultivated a tight and unending relationship with the children of Suzanne Adams, one of his sisters. "He just loved them," said his other sister, Carolyn Gallagher. "When he was planning to get married, he even asked them if it was O.K. They gave him the thumbs up.

"To stay in the loop, he knew he needed to be wired into teenage interests, so Mr. Gallagher faithfully watched MTV. "He would talk to them about Eminem and all that," Carolyn said.

And he did what they did. At a family barbecue at the Adams household over the Labor Day weekend, there was a contest to see who could make the biggest splash off the diving board of the pool. Mr. Gallagher was up there doing massive cannonballs. Profile published in THE NEW YORK TIMES on October 23, 2001.

Laurence M. Polatsch - Died 9/11/01

As part of the 2996 Project here is my tribute to one who gave his life on 9/11. Since there is so many to publish on blogspot. I've been asked to post it now...Please read it and send out your prayers or whatever belief system you use ....wishing them and their families peace.

Laurence M. Polatsch Free Spirit Brought Joy to All Near Him
September 19, 2001
Always the prankster, Larry Polatsch donned a tuxedo and crashed the wedding of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas at the swanky Plaza Hotel in Manhattan last fall.
He even ate with Jack Nicholson before security guards caught on and forced him to leave.
As the paparazzi waited outside, Polatsch left the hotel beside Anthony Hopkins. He sneaked in again and left beside Dennis Miller. Then again with Quincy Jones.
He demonstrated the same determination combating an illness earlier this year, surviving a potentially fatal blood clot in his lungs.
"You just figure, it's not [his] time to go," said his cousin Bryan Schwartzman.
Formerly an attorney, Polatsch, 32, changed careers six years ago so he wouldn't have to "fight with people the rest of his life," said his father, Bernard Polatsch, 64, of Woodbury.
The Upper East Side resident worked as a partner in equities sales at Cantor Fitzgerald on the 104th floor of One World Trade Center. The family has presumed he died in the terrorism attack.
Polatsch attended Syosset High School, the University of Michigan and Syracuse Law School.
"He once flew home from Michigan with flowers for me on my birthday," said his mother, Linda Polatsch, 60, of Brookville. Last October, he threw her a birthday party with 70 guests at an upscale Manhattan restaurant. He often returned to Syosset to visit his former teachers.
"Everyone should have the sons that I have," she said. "It's just the worst thing in the entire world" to have lost Larry.
Though he once asked Julia Roberts on a date and even appeared on "Entertainment Tonight" re-enacting the proposition, his true love was Marni Wasserman, 32, whom he knew since seventh grade. Just months ago, they rekindled their romance and, by all accounts, expected to marry.
"He was the one," Wasserman said. "I felt 100percent secure, 100 percent happy. I've never felt that way.
"He profoundly changed my life all through the years, but in the end it was so special," she said.
In one discussion, he told her: "Marni, I don't get down. I don't get sad. I don't get depressed.... You can count on me to always make you in a good mood."
His brother, Danny, 30, said, "In the last several months, when he was with Marni, he was really happy."
As children, the two brothers went to sleepaway camp together. Then Danny entered the University of Michigan when his older brother was a senior. The two belonged to the same fraternity.
Two of Danny's friends from the fraternity were also in the World Trade Center. He has already attended a funeral for one friend and plans to attend another Thursday.
Larry had a personal Web site, www.larrypolatsch .com, which the family plans to convert into a memorial where people can post their memories of him.
"There are hundreds of stories because he was a character," Danny said. "He lived his entire life as if each day was really his last day. It's as if he knew that his life was going to end early because he packed in so much in 32 years."
--Richard J. Dalton Jr. (Newsday)

Have No Idea What I'm Talking About but just had to say it.

Speaking of dancing fast and Fridays, I'm in one of those ponderous, stream of conscience moods...wondering once again why time goes by so fast....and speeds up as we grow older. I mean just yesterday I was 21! ( :-) Wide eyed, dreaming, crazy. Today, at just a bit on the right side of 21 (ha) I'm still wide eyed, dreamy and crazy! (I do what my rice crispies tell me to do). In the blink of an eye I find myself far from 21, an age where I would live forever and die tomorrow. So vulnerable, yet invinceable. (I'm wondering if Einstein's Theory of Relativity has anything to do with this, lol). Furrowing my brow...thinking here that yeah I'm still crazy. But who cares? I'm still having fun, only at a faster pace. As time goes by.


WOW! HAPPY DANCE FRIDAY IS HERE ALREADY! DANCE FAST! DANCE SLOW! JUST DANCE! I, for one, am happy dancing again. After five weeks of physical therepy (my ankle, remember?) my strength is returning and I think I'll be able to at least two step into the weekend!

Remember Them

2,996 is a tribute to the victims of 9/11.
On September 11, 2006, 2,996 volunteer bloggers will join together for a tribute to the victims of 9/11.Each person will pay tribute to a single victim.
We will honor them by remembering their lives,and not by remembering their murderers.

You are honest and direct. You tell it like it is.You say whatever is on your mind. Other people's reactions don't phase you.Your friends tend to be a as quirky as you are - which is saying a lot!You tend to always dream of things within reach - and you usually get them.
How Do You Live Your Life?

Ok, Ok, I needed a filler I'm on the go and don't have much time to sit and ponder or sit and be silly. Although this is pretty silly....but hey...I need to know these things...helps me make my daily decisions and adds a little variety to my somewhat dull and boring existence these days...(oh woe is me!)

My name is Odat and I'm a blogaholic!

We do not write because we want to; we write because we have to.

Well it's the middle of the day for me here and I have a pounding headache. I'm thinking it's because I've had a crazy, hectic day but then a thought occured to me! I didn't post anything on my blog this morning! Oh noooo! Could it be? Am I an addict? Is this a withdrawal headache? Do I need a blog fix? Maybe huh? Well let's see if by posting this my headache goes away. There, I feel better already! Wow.......what do they call this new drug? Blogacillin? LSB(log)? Blogauana?

Silliness break

I'm working...really!!!!! (I can multi task!)


Next Monday is September 11th. As part of the "2996 Project" I made a committment to memorialize two of the people who died so tradgically in the terrorist attack that day. Two people whom I did not know but wish I had. I will post about their lives on 9/11. Their names are Laurence M. Polatsch and Anthony Edward Gallagher, both worked at Cantor Fitzgerald on the 105th Floor of the World Trade Center.

This week is also going to be hard for me as well because I lost many friends and co-workers that day and will be attending remembrance services for some. My company's main office was located there. I was on vacation that day. For that I am grateful. But I ask that you keep in your thoughts and prayers all those who were lost that day.


Aarrgghh Tuesday!

Hey.....It's aaarrghhhh Tuesday! Yeah Yeah...I know. But yesterday was really FUNDAY, not MONDAY, (cause it was a holiday for me, so that's why I didn't aarrgghh it.)

But today is my real Monday and I'm so looking forward(NOT) to getting my rear in gear and haul my ass off to work, after a nice and relaxing weekend, in spite of the storm of Friday and Saturday. Well, two out of four ain't bad. (Is that a song? lol). Let's see what today brings....hope it brings something better to blog about then this! Time for my coffee now.....Have a great adventure today. (oh geeze, isn't that an amusement park?) I crack myself up sometimes....(but come on, it's only 5AM!).

Stupid Stuff

Happy Sunday.....

Sorry, but I saw this and had to post it...kinda like a follow up to my slug encounter....thought it was cute....(if you can possibly imagine anything cute about about slugs)....oh well....I try!

Some Famous Last Words:

Noo these windows are ok to lean on.

Don’t worry it has airbags.

Hey what’s that buzzing noise?

Don’t worry its not that deep

No, he doesn’t bite?.

Hey look a light at the end of the tunnel

My brakes are fine.

Nice doggy.

I'm Beta now...(no, not from my cold) I just switched over to the new Blogger Beta....and....I'm finding out now, as in after the fact, that I can't leave comments on those blogs who do not have this new beta thingy....Its pissing me off....cause I have a lot to say sometimes...So I'm warning yas....get Beta!!! ha ha ha ha ha

Have Fun!



Just walked the dog....and it's cold...windy...and the worse is yet to come....and I wish I had a fireplace..I wish I had a lot of things....actually I don't...I have enough already....Sometimes I just have to take stock of myself and realize just what a blessed person I really am instead of concentrating on that which I don't have...and I'm not talking about material things either. I know I complain a lot about certain things missing out of my life....but those were choices made by me...After all, aren't I responsible for my happiness....I have no idea if this is making sense but it's my really early morning ramblings that I had to get out of my system. I wish you sunshine in your hearts and hopefully in the sky this weekend! Later..

Although I'm very grateful that it's Friday and it's a holiday weekend and I have off on Monday....a lil part of me is kinda saddened by this weather! It's rainy, chilly, and a storm is coming in tonight....So my plans to lay on a beach all weekend are shattered. So that means I must tackle some work that needs to be done indoors. Things I'd rather avoid and not look at and make believe arent't really there. Kinda like the way I've been looking at my whole life lately. If I don't think about it, it doesn't exist! Ok...let's change that subject real quick...(doesn't exist, I can't see it, putting my hands over my eyes, plugging my ears).....whew, I'm ok now..... ...So let's get back to some fun......

New rules from George Carlin:

1. New rule: stop giving me that pop-up ad for There's a reason you don't talk to people for 25 years. Because you don't particularly like them! Besides, I already know what the captain of the football team is doing these days: mowing my lawn.

2. New rule: don't eat anything that's served to you out a window unless, you're a seagull. People are acting all shocked that a human finger was found in a bowl of Wendy's chili. Hey, it cost less than a dollar. What did you expect it to contain? Trout?

3. New rule: stop saying that teenage boys who have sex with their hot, blonde teachers are permanently damaged. I have a better description for these kids: lucky bastards.

4. New rule: if you need to shave and you still collect baseball cards, you're gay. If you're a kid, the cards are keepsakes of your idols. If you're a grown man, they're pictures of men.

5. New rule: ladies, leave your eyebrows alone. Here's how much men care about your eyebrows: do you have two of them? Okay, we're done.

6. New rule: there's no such thing as flavored water. There's a whole aisle of this crap at the supermarket - water, but without that watery taste. Sorry, but flavored water is called a soft drink. You want flavored water? Pour some scotch over ice and let it melt. That's your flavored water.

7. New rule: stop f***ing with old people. Target is introducing a redesigned pill bottle that's square, with a bigger label. And the top is now the bottom. And by the time grandpa figures out how to open it, his ass will be in the morgue. Congratulations, Target, you just solved the social security crisis.

8. New rule: the more complicated the starbucks order, the bigger the asshole. If you walk into a Starbucks and order a "decaf grande half-soy, half-low fat, iced vanilla, double-shot, gingerbread cappuccino, extra dry, light ice, with one sweet-n'-low and one Nutrasweet," ooooohhhhhh, you're a huge asshole!

9. New rule: I'm not the cashier! By the time I look up from sliding my card, entering my pin number, pressing "enter," verifying the amount, deciding, no, I don't want cash back, and pressing "enter" again, the kid who is supposed to be ringing me up is standing there eating my almond joy.

10. New rule: just because your tattoo has Chinese characters in it doesn't make you spiritual. It's right above the crack of your ass. And it translates to "beef with broccoli." The last time you did anything spiritual, you were praying to god you weren't pregnant. You're not spiritual. You're just high.

11. New rule: competitive eating isn't a sport. It's one of the seven deadly sins. ESPN recently televised the US open of competitive eating, because watching those athletes at the poker table was just too damned exciting. What's next, competitive farting? Oh wait. they're already doing that. It's called "the Howard Stern show."

12. New rule: I don't need a bigger mega m&m. If I'm extra hungry for m&ms, I'll go nuts and eat two.

13. New rule: if you're going to insist on making movies based on crappy, old television shows, then you have to give everyone in the cineplex a remote so we can see what's playing on the other screens. Let's remember that the reason something was a television show in the first place is that the idea wasn't good enough to be a movie.

14. New rule: no more gift registries. You know, it used to be just for weddings. Now it's for babies and new homes and graduations from rehab. Picking out the stuff you want and having other people buy it for you isn't gift giving, it's the white people version of looting.

15. New rule: and this one is long overdue: no more bathroom attendants. After I zip up, some guy is offering me a towel and a mint like I just had sex with George Michael. I can't even tell if he's supposed to be there, or just some freak with a fetish. Don't want to be on your webcam, dude. I just want to wash my hands!

16. New rule: when I ask how old your toddler is, I don't need to know in months. "27 months." "He's two," will do just fine. He's not a cheese. And I didn't really care in the first place.



And it's a three day weekend to boot, so y'all 's gonna have to keep on dancing!
