Midlife Assessment - Cataloging my ruination. By Jonathan Ames
I'm 41 years old, and I'm absolutely falling apart. I'll start from the top and work my way down, cataloging, as it were, my disintegration.
And after reading this guy's "catalog", I feel positively YOUTHFUL, even though I'm four years older. Although there are days when I feel like an old cripple-- especially after a half hour on the elliptical-- at least I can still crawl up onto the thing. However, I am counting the days till I can get the Trek out again. I told a friend in all seriousness that if it weren't for the ice on the streets, I'd be riding it right now. I wonder if they make snowtires for bicycles?

Favre JS Online: SMASHING SUCCESS
Of course, Favre is entrenched in the Green Bay annals with numerous records. His top target was Antonio Freeman, who has caught more touchdown passes from Favre - 57 - than anyone else. Freeman said those numbers don't nearly define Favre's impact on the franchise."He's a Hall of Famer," said Freeman. "Those records, they come and go, there will be someone younger, someone faster, someone bigger, and they will shatter those records. But the memories, no one can ever take those. The journey was great. I could name 20 fantastic moments with him and I would still miss five that I should have included. That's' how great the journey was. There was never a dull moment with him."
There was very rarely a dull moment watching him, either. It was just FUN to watch him play!  But after seeing his wave to the crowd on the way to the tunnel, I think we have seen the last of Bret Favre in Green Bay. It was a fun ride.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And auld lang syne? For auld lang syne, my dear, For auld lang syne, We'll tak a cup of kindness yet, For auld lang syne! And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp, And surely I'll be mine, And we'll tak a cup o kindness yet, For auld lang syne! We twa hae run about the braes, And pou'd the gowans fine, But we've wander'd monie a weary fit, Sin auld lang syne. We twa hae paidl'd in the burn Frae morning sun till dine, But seas between us braid hae roar'd Sin auld lang syne. And there's a hand my trusty fiere, And gie's a hand o thine, And we'll tak a right guid-willie waught, For auld lang syne

  1. I went to San Francisco. I found someone's heart. Now what?
  2. All I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make me happy.
  3. If the world were a logical place, men would ride horses sidesaddle.
  4. They told me I was gullible ... and I believed them.
  5. Teach a child to be polite and courteous in the home and, when he grows up, he'll never be able to merge his car onto a freeway.
  6. Experience is the thing you have left when everything else is gone.
  7. When the only tool you own is a hammer, every problem begins to look like a nail.
  8. A flashlight is a case for holding dead batteries.
  9. My weight is perfect for my height -- which varies.
  10. Where do forest rangers go to "get away from it all"?
  11. Is it possible to be totally partial?
  12. If swimming is so good for your figure, how do you explain whales?
  13. Show me a man with both feet firmly on the ground, and I'll show you a man who can't get his pants off.
  14. Is it my imagination, or do buffalo wings taste like chicken?

    The badge of victimhood must be "earned" (ha ha, just kidding!) by one of two methods: (1) Membership in a special "victim" class; or (2) having something bad actually happen to you. Method 1 is definitely is superior in every way since it eliminates the need for something bad to actually happen to you (as long as it once happened to someone like you--you are set); thus this method is preferable and automatically puts all sorts of celebrities and famous people on your side. They will not be concerned if you are a good person or a bad person; just as long as you meet the basic victimhood criteria
    I have GOT to spend a little more time at this blog--hilarious stuff. Especially the "Bush Derangement Syndrome" discussion!

    Teenage Adventure
    BAGHDAD (Reuters) - An American teenager ran away to Baghdad over Christmas and survived probably the most dangerous destination in the world before being packed off home by the U.S. military, U.S. officials said on Friday. Farris (Bueller?) Hassan, the 16-year-old son of Iraqi immigrants to Florida, showed up at the Baghdad bureau of an American news agency on Tuesday and recounted a tale of foolhardy daring by a would-be journalist on a far-fetched school project, the Associated Press said in a report on its unlikely visitor. Unable to speak Arabic, the dangers of his predicament began to dawn on him when he went out of his hotel looking for food and had to pull out his phrase book.
    And we worry about kids' drinking parties up here, or our little Ferris Bueller's days off? Can you imagine that phone call to his parents? "Hi son, where have you been?" ...long pause.... "You're WHERE????" (Not to mention, I want to read THAT report on "What I did for Christmas vacation"!!!)

    Men want facts, women seek relations on Web
    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Internet users share many common interests, but men are heavier consumers of news, stocks, sports and pornography while more women look for health and religious guidance, a broad survey of U.S. Web usage has found.
    Um...religious guidance? from the Wacky World Web???

    Survey says baby boomers lag seniors in direct deposit usage - Dec. 27, 2005
    NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) - Unlike today's seniors, the next generation of retirees is old-fashioned about direct deposit of paychecks and other payouts -- according to a survey released Tuesday, the "kids" don't trust it.According to the survey, there were three main reasons given by the people who don't use direct deposit: 21 percent said they like to go to a financial institution to deposit their check; 19 percent said they don't trust direct deposit; and 18 percent said they like receiving a paper check.
    I'm in the last 18%--I like to hold that paycheck in my hot little hand for a few minutes, caress it, dream of all the things I could do with it.... hit the mall? run away to Jamaica?... before I give it away to house payments, utility bills, etc. etc. *comes back to earth still thinking about a Jamaican beach*
