Book Club

Thursday, April 20th, 2006

Oprah has one so why not me? :) I wanted to get the Book Club list up over here on the new site so anyone who cares can keep up with it. The current entries are:

null Levi’s Will by W. Dale Cramer

null Last Light by Terri Blackstock

and

null All She Ever Wanted by Lynn Austin

Now, these are listed in the order in which I read them and not necessarily by preference. I am almost always reading a book so I’m sure another one will be added soon. The last two I read didn’t live up to my Book Club standards but the one I’m into right now just might find its way here! Keep your eyes open.

Hot Tub Hunting

Thursday, April 20th, 2006

I believe I am in the market for a hot tub. When I get overly stressed, or following overly stressful times, I get symptoms very akin to fibromyalgia and it does not feel good. A hot tub, on the other hand, would do wonders for my aches and pains. If anyone has any ideas about where to found one that won’t leave me penniless, please let me know. I don’t need anything huge…just a two seater will do for me. Thanks to Best Buddy for the suggestion. :)

Another One Bites the Dust

Wednesday, April 19th, 2006

null President Shrub’s Press Secretary, Scott McClellan, has jumped ship with the rest of the rats. Apparently, he decided to answer the new Chief of Staff’s call for anyone thinking of leaving to go ahead and go.

Hey Dude, you might want to hold that door open…

The Decider

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

Bush makes it so easy. Check out this quote from an article on CNN:

null “I listen to all voices but mine is the final decision…I hear the voices, and I read the front page and I know the speculation. But I’m the decider and I decide what’s best.”

What comes next? “I see dead people”?

A Funny From Lenn

Tuesday, April 18th, 2006

I went to the doctor for my yearly physical. The nurse starts with certain basics. “How much do you weigh?” she asks.

“115,” I say. The nurse puts me on the scale. It turns out my weight is 140.

The nurse asks, “Your height?”

“5 foot 8,” I say. The nurse checks and sees that I only measure 5’5″.

She then takes my blood pressure and tells me it is very high.

“Of course it’s high!” I scream, “When I came in here I was tall and slender! Now I’m short and fat!”

She put me on Prozac.

Calling All Cars

Monday, April 17th, 2006

As I was getting into the elevator today to head home for lunch, I noticed Records Lady (not her real name…smile) heading toward the elevator with a very serious look on her face. Being raised as well as I was, I held the elevator and waited for her. It is only a two story building but it was the thought that counted!

Anyway, Records Lady asked me if I had seen Warrant Cop (again, not his real name) come by. I told her I hadn’t seen him and she proceeded to tell me that a guy (Wanted Dude) just walked away from the records window and he had a direct indictment warrant out for him. Warrant Cop was supposed to come up and get him but Wanted Dude had just walked away.

By this time, the elevator door opened (yes, it is that slow) and Records Lady and I came out to an empty lobby. I spotted a rather big mountain of a man in the parking lot and asked Records Lady if he was Wanted Dude. She got really excited and said, “Yeah, that’s him”. Then she disappeared through the door leading down to the Warrant Unit…looking for Warrant Cop.
