New Lingerie

Via Miss Cellania.



A husband walks into Victoria 's Secret to purchase some sheer lingerie for his wife. He is shown several possibilities that range from $250 to $500 in price, the more sheer, the higher the price .

He opts for the most sheer item, pays the $500 and takes the lingerie home. He presents it to his wife and asks her to go upstairs, put it on and model it for him.

Upstairs, the wife thinks, "I have an idea. It's so sheer that it might as well be nothing. I won't put it on, do the modeling naked, return it tomorrow and keep the $500 refund for myself." So she appears naked on the balcony and strikes a pose.

The husband says, "Good Lord! You'd think that for $500, they'd at least iron it!"

He never heard the shot.

The funeral is on Thursday.

Just Wondering

Do you ever wonder whether any of the people you have 'met' online are psychos? And would you ever find out if they were?

And We Have Our Three...

It seems as if deaths--especially celebrity deaths--come in threes. Today, we finished the three with Michael Jackson dying. Ed McMahon and Farrah Fawcett were the first two. I can see lots and lots and lots of tribute shows in the future.

The Other Season

As I have said numerous times before, we have two seasons here: winter and construction. Today we are experiencing the construction season full force.

Last week we received a letter telling us that the water/sewer lines on our street will be replaced beginning this past Monday. No other details, no telling us just HOW inconvenienced we will be, no telling us whether we will be able to get off of our street or not, etc, etc. We live at the end of a dead end street, so it would have been nice to find out whether we needed to move our vehicles or not. It also would have been nice to find out that this MAJOR project would happen earlier--less than a week before said project begins just isn't enough time. Really, what if we had major work planned for our home and trucks and workmen needed access? Or if we were planning a move during the time the street was being dug up? Obviously, someone dropped the ball on this one.

Monday came and went and there was no work done on this street. The same on Tuesday. Mid-morning today, the equipment and men began pouring onto our street and the work began. About six hours later, we were given the note that said the work would begin today. (No reason to rush these things--after all, we could look out of the front window and SEE with our own eyes what is going on.)

About 4:00 or so this afternoon, things seemed to be going quite well. The guys had dug up our neighbor's yard and street in front of their house and had moved onto our property. It looked as if everything was moving right along and their estimated day of completion--3 July--just might work out. Then it happened. They busted the main water line. We have now been without water for about one and a half hours and there is no telling when we will get it back. YIPPEE!!!! And I still have a week+ of this shit. I think their early estimation of three weeks will be closer to the truth as to how long this will take. I just LOVE construction season.

Road Trip

We went up north today to deliver several items that we had here: a birthday gift, a Father's Day gift, a confirmation gift, and various other things. It went okay.

I got to give the confirmation gift to our goddaughter personally. I DID say that I was sorry to be late, but not knowing she was being confirmed made it difficult to get it to her on time. I believe I made my point. She seemed to be pleased with the necklace, which I was happy about.

We visited with The Parents for a time, then went to K's sister's house and had dinner with her. Finally, we saw the grandchildren and gave them what was theirs. A quick trip, but a good one nonetheless.

In the 100 miles we drove to get home, the temperature went from 88 degrees, down to 60, back up to 88, and settled at 74 at our house. It is always an adventure here in the UP.

Like Anyone Didn't See This Coming

Jon and Kate have filed for divorce. And if you don't know who I'm talking about, you haven't been anywhere near the internet for a long, long time. These people drive me absolutely insane. I watched their show one time and only got through five minutes before I couldn't take it anymore. She was such an absolute bitch that I couldn't imagine anyone wanting to watch the show and having to see her for however many minutes it ran. Anyway, I hope this doesn't mean each of them will get their own show now. WHY don't they just go away? But there is hope that they will, at some time. J Lo went away, right? :)

Hurting Or Just Pissed?

I found out, via Facebook, that my one and only goddaughter got confirmed today. Obviously, if I found out by reading FB, I was not informed personally. Our goddaughter posted the message as her status update, so it wasn't even aimed toward me. This is The Brother's youngest. Wow. This just goes to show exactly how much The Brother and his Wife hate me and K. But, I think what hurts me the most is that I am sure my Oldest lied to me. I called and mentioned the confirmation and she said she knew nothing about it till SHE read it on FB. She lives about ten miles from The Parents and The Brother. The Mother tells everyone every little bit of minutiae there is to tell, so there is NO WAY this was not passed on to C.

I have a very special necklace that I am going to give to our goddaughter--it was given to me on MY confirmation day. I'm not sure HOW I will present it, but I need to think of some way to let The Family know how pissed off I am. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Pictures!!

The other day I posted the police log about an assault on a man in an apple suit. Toady I SAW the man in the apple suit--and got some pictures! I'm sorry they aren't the best--we were driving, I only had my cell phone, and I couldn't find my glasses fast enough. Anyway, we were driving down the street which goes through the downtown area of our city and there he was! He was advertising for our local farmer's market--while wearing an apple suit. I LOVE living in this town!

Police Log

--5:02 PM, man in apple suit assaulted

THIS just leaves me with SO many questions. The first is: WHAT is an apple suit?


--2:17 PM, helicopter landing

Now, this isn't that funny until you realize WHERE the helicopter was landing: at the National Guard Armory.


--9:46 AM, report of vagrant living on property, turned out to be kids building a fort

SOME people just don't have lives. Like ME!!! :D (No, I didn't call this in.)

Let's Get Ready To Ramble

For the most part, I seem to be doing okay after Friday. However, today isn't quite as good of a day as yesterday was--I find myself tearing up for no reason at all. This whole thing hurt very, very badly and won't be better any time soon.

----------

I STILL am obsessing over my neighbor's lawn ornaments. She continues to take them into the garage every night. As I have said WAY too many times, I REALLY need a life!!!

----------

Because of the 'discovery' yesterday, I am now re-thinking the amount of food the cat has been eating. I wonder if we caught all of the mice that have been running around. Got to stop thinking about this--I feel itchy and have the willies all at once!

----------

Looks like we will be getting summer after all. This entire week should see temps around 70 degrees. It can't end fast enough for me. The warm weather, that is. :-/

----------

We STILL haven't gotten any planting done. But, the temps haven't been real helpful in terms of gardening, either. K is now going to be off for almost 10 days, so things should get done. I will NOT go the entire summer without tomatoes from our garden!

----------

Looks like we may be doing a road trip this weekend. We haven't done an over nighter but once since coming home from Florida, so it is time. I only hope it won't be too hot to enjoy myself!

----------

Five weeks into the Enbrel therapy and all seems to be going well. I still say that, overall, my skin has improved 75%. I don't have 75% CLEARING, but some areas ARE free of psoriasis. I continue to have injection site reactions, but the doctor said they will diminish and there is no reason for me to stop using the Enbrel. If things continue as they are, I WILL have massive areas of clear skin by the three month mark. At least, I hope so!

----------

There are less than two months till I reach my ten year anniversary of quitting smoking. And I think I now know what I will get myself as a gift: a smart phone! My youngest and her husband have Blackberry Pearls and love them to death, so that is a possibility. However, ATT has the Nokia E71x and I WANT!



I have never had anything BUT a Nokia, so this would satisfy me. Also, I REALLY miss my Palm and this would be a nice replacement. I will have to think about this--I do have time. BUT, I'm pretty sure I will own this phone two months from now.

I Did It

I went and started a second blog. I realize not everyone that comes here--okay, almost NO ONE who comes here--cares one bit about the Wings, or hockey in general. So, I will no longer do hockey posts here--or very few. My new blog is ONLY hockey and that should be good--I can separate my two worlds. Or as much as is possible, seeing as I don't have a life outside of the Red Wings. ;) The name of the new blog is Out Of My Mind Over Hockey. Check it out if you want.

Postcards From Yo Momma

This one made me laugh inappropriately!

Backstory: I sent my mom an article about a woman who has trust issues in relationships because her mom read her journal when she was a teen (my mom is also a giant snoop, especially when I was going through my “dark” times).

Dear Daughter,
I never, ever read your journal or your letters, only your poems. They were great by the way. Even the woman at the suicide hot-line thought so.
Love Mom

And The Injuries Will Be Revealed...

We now are learning about which Wings were injured and just how bad they were. YIKES!!! I wouldn't be surprised if more injuries will be revealed in the coming days/weeks. It really is a tough business and I salute all who play the game!

From the Free Press:

Nicklas Lidstrom: He was speared in the testicles by Patrick Sharp during Game 3 against Chicago and underwent surgery on the area two days later. he Missed Games 4 and 5 against Chicago, then returned and played every game of the Cup finals.

Rafalski: He ruptured a disk in his back between the first and second round but returned for Game 6 against Anaheim. "It got to the point where he could play again," Holland said, "but if had been the regular season, he would have been out another week or two. He played through the pain of a herniated disk."

Kris Draper: He missed the first 10 games of the playoffs after taking a stick to the throat that tore cartilage in the neck area, Holland said. "As a precaution, we didn't want him to get hit in the neck and have something go down the air pipe wrong." Draper was out from Game 4 against Chicago to Game 5 against Pittsburgh because of a pulled groin.

Draper wore the equivalent of a goaltender's throat protector under his shoulder pads for the rest of the playoffs.

Pavel Datsyuk: Suffered a charley horse when he was hit along the boards and also was hit by a slap shot in his foot during Game 2 against Chicago, causing him to miss seven games. "The charley horse turned out to be more significant," Holland said. "He never was 100% -- he didn't have any thrust. A charley horse can be a 4-6-week injury, but he pushed through to play."

Dan Cleary: Played through a groin pull suffered in Game 4 against Pittsburgh. "He was very sore after Game 4, and we didn't expect him to play in Game 5," Holland said. "An MRI showed he had a significant groin injury, but he wanted to play."


MLive.com confirms:

Pavel Datsyuk also had a charley horse, in addition to his foot injury. Both were sustained in Game 2 vs. Chicago. Holland said the foot was not fractured and it was fine by the time he returned, but the charley horse, similar to the injury Datsyuk suffered prior to the 2006 playoffs, really hampered him.

"He didn't have that jump, he definitely was not 100 percent but he had the hands and the hockey sense,'' Holland said. "He wanted to play so bad.''

Holland said if it was the regular season Datsyuk, who missed seven games before returning for Game 5 of the finals, would have sat out at least two more weeks.
...
Dan Cleary had a severe groin pull, so much so the the club didn't think he would play in Game 5 of the finals, but he gutted it out.

"He willed his way to play the rest of the playoffs,'' Holland said.
...
"We rushed them all back when we knew there wasn't any danger of them hurting themselves any further,'' Holland said.

Holland said those were the only significant injuries sustained during the playoffs. None will require surgery.

So cute!!









Anyone who has ever been owned by a cat knows how true this one is!



From I Can Has Cheezburger.

EWWWWWWW!!!!!!!

We had a bad smell in the pantry/breakfast nook/mudroom area of the house for the past couple of days. I thought it was the garbage and was going to take care of it today. FINALLY K smelled it and began looking to find the source. Turns out, we had a dead mouse in the trap and it was decomposing. THANKFULLY he took care of the problem while I was sleeping. EWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!


It Is Finished

I'm still trying to get over the loss last night, but it isn't happening. This will stay with me forever--just KNOWING that The Little Shit had his hands on the Cup makes me want to puke. I avoided having to see that until I opened one of my favorite Wings' blogs today and saw the picture. And all could see was red through my anger. Hopefully, the Wings' players feel the same way and will use this as motivation toward the inevitable Cup run of 2010.

While there aren't excuses for the loss, I feel there are more than a few explanations for why the Cup isn't in Detroit today. First, and foremost, is the fact that the league WANTED Pittsburgh to win. No, not in a 'conspiracy' sort of way, but in a subtle way--especially when it came to officiating. (And we won't even TALK about the 'discipline' that wasn't handed down during the playoffs. THAT is a black mark against the league and something that HAS to be addressed--and SOON.) The league wanted the players to be 'allowed' to play and show the skill level that is there. HA!!! The non-calls totally kept the skill players from being able to do what they do so well. The officiating was so inconsistent throughout the playoffs that the players had NO IDEA what was going to be called and what wasn't. I noticed hesitation on the part of the Wings in many cases--as if they weren't sure whether they could get away with something or not. And, human nature being what it is, I'm sure--at least subconsciously--many Wings hesitated because they KNEW the league wanted Pittsburgh to be victorious, and they weren't sure if they would get fair treatment from the refs. But, this is what the winning fans would call whining.

Any day of the week and twice on Sunday, the Wings would beat Pittsburgh if everything was equal--and NOTHING was equal in this series. Again with the officiating, but it seemed as if the Wings 'stopped' playing at different times because they thought a penalty would be called. And it took them way too long to get back into the game after realizing it was another non-call. This is something they will have to address next season, cause I don't see anything changing anytime soon.

The injury list is soooooo long for the Wings. If Datsyuk wouldn't have missed four games and if he would have come back 100%, the Wings would have won the series in no more than 5 games--no doubt at all. It is being said that Holmstrom and Cleary--and maybe Hossa--will be having surgery this summer. Lidstrom DID have surgery DURING the playoffs. In the Chicago series, Sharp speared Lidstrom in the balls and he needed surgery on one of his testicles--and he came back to finish out the playoffs! You CAN'T tell me he was 100% after THAT one! (And Patrick Sharp has moved WAY up on my despicable asshat list after reading about this!) AND Lidstrom already said at the All-Star break that he probably would need elbow surgery this summer. Rafalski, Samuelsson, and Zetterberg are also said to have had significant injuries that they were playing through. All in all, not much of a Red Wings team for the Penguins to have to fight against.

As for Hossa. Many people blame him for not doing very much, especially against Pitts. Granted, he didn't put up any big numbers in terms of goals, but he didn't do all that bad. Not any worse than some other players. Where were Hudler and Sammy? But, again, I think Hossa was playing through a significant injury. I feel badly for him to see his dream come to naught for the second year in a row. He gave a lot to the team and was good for the Wings. From everything that has been said and written, he was a team player and well liked both on and off the ice. Personally, I don't think he was utilized the best way, but that was Babcock's decision to make. I wanted to see Z-Datsyuk-Holmstrom on the first line and Hossa-Filppula-Franzen on the second. I believe that would have given more nightmares to any of the other 29 teams in the league than what they had with the Wings the way they were. I also think that Hossa's time as a Red Wing is done. With the salary cap the way it is, I don't know HOW Holland could pull a contract out of his ass for Hossa and still put out a Cup contending team again next year. BUT, if ANYONE can do it, Holland can. If Hossa goes elsewhere, I say good luck and thanks. He gave what he could to Detroit and came up short in the long rung. I have NO ill feelings toward him at all.

Next year's team WILL have a different look to it. Whether it is losing some familiar faces--Samuelsson, Hudler, Kopecky--and keeping Hossa, or KEEPING the familiar while losing Hossa and bringing up some of the Grand Rapid players, I really don't see the Wings losing a step. They have a great talent base and are so deep with who is in Grand Rapids, that I think they will continue to be Bettman's worst nightmare for many, many years to come.

The REALLY bright spot in the last 20+ hours is this: Mr Ilitch refused to acknowledge, or shake Bettman's hand last night when they 'met' under the stands. I don't blame Ilitch one bit. Bettman and him have hated each other from the dawn of time and Bettman has shown his bias against the Wings time and time again. The two of them have been on opposite sides of many issues through the years and Ilitch taking the side of the players during the lockout was something Bettman could not abide. Ilitch doesn't have to 'play nice' with Bettman and I don't blame him for not being a hypocrite. Good going, Mr Ilitch. Besides, Ilitch has more money than God, so what is Bettman going to do about it? Come up with MORE rules and regulations to hurt the Wings organization? Yeah, right--that has worked for you so many times over the years, hasn't it Gary?

I am really looking forward to next year. The season starts in 110 days--in Sweden! Wish I could be there--and hopefully, this will be the year I get to the Joe. GO WINGS!!!

LOVING This Website

Not Always Right is a site where people send in stories about customers. I know I have mentioned it before--not too long ago. Here is a great story from today:


(My dad was standing in an express line at the grocery store. In front of him was a well-to-do-looking woman, who clearly had several more items than the limit.)

Dad: “You know, it’s amazing that someone who is apparently so successful can’t read.”

Woman: *in a huff* “That sign’s for regular people, not for me!”

(An old man behind my dad taps him on the shoulder.)

Old man: “Here, give her this.”

(My dad hands it to the woman.)

Woman: “What’s this?”

Old man: “Metamucil. It’ll make you regular.”

Quote

"These are just the rules today. We reserve the right to change the rules at any time. For your safety, for your education, or for our amusement. That is the price of living in our kingdom."

Damn, but I would have SWORN these words came out of Gary Bettman's mouth instead of Dan Conner's*!


*For those who have forgotten, he was the husband in Roseanne.

Thoughts

After some sleep and calming down, I think I can actually write something coherent about last night's game.

Anyone who is not a Wings' fan now knows what we have been going through all year long with the team: wondering how a team so great can play so inconsistently. I watched all--or parts of all--of the games this season and have asked that question over and over and over again. At first, it seemed to be a Cup hangover, but that doesn't even explain it all. And then they came into the playoffs and they switched into high gear--for awhile. Right now I'm willing to bet the biggest problem--on an individual basis, anyway--is injuries. Most everyone is convinced that Daysyuk is playing with a broken foot. Hossa is not himself and is most likely injured. Lidstrom is playing--and has all year long--with a bad elbow that probably will need surgery this summer. AND he was speared in the groin during the Chicago series, so THAT is a factor. Draper missed quite a bit of time and Cleary has numerous bangs, bumps, and bruises that haven't had time to heal. And this is what is KNOWN. We'll hear stories about how banged up everyone is after Friday. (I know my Baby Boy had an undisclosed injury during last year's run and we found out about it after the Cup win.) So this could be what is going on.

During games--and afterward, for awhile--I most likely blame the refs for a Wings' loss. Last night wasn't ONLY about the refs, but they definitely played a part in what happened. It must have been pretty bad because even the CBC AND NBC announcers pointed out missed calls on the Penguins. And THEY have their collective lips planted squarely on The Boy's ass--if not other parts. (Did I REALLY write that? Yes I did. ;)) But, this isn't anything new--and it isn't anything the other teams haven't experienced, also. Officiating in the NHL is atrocious, to say the least. And that isn't even talking about the 'disciplinary' part of what is going on--which would take another 3, 462 posts. Something has to be done about both problems, because long-time fans just aren't going to take it anymore and will start walking away from the NHL. Then the only 'fans' that will be left are the bandwagoners and 'tween girls who swoon over The Boy. And if Bettman thinks THEY will keep the league afloat, he is sadly mistaken.

I guess the thing that bothers me the most is what will come next year. It doesn't matter who wins on Friday because the MSM and non-Wings' supporters will go on and on about how the Penguins won because they pushed the series to seven games. This past year we were subjected to commercial after commercial showing last year's finals implying the Penguins won the Cup. Anyone not a hockey fan would think that Pittsburgh won the Cup last year and that The Boy did it all himself. But, with Bettman crowning him the 'face of the NHL' and the Golden Boy, I guess it is expected. But, it still is annoying as hell AND it hurts. I understand why so many people are sick and tired of the Wings and hate them so, but I AM a fan and it doesn't feel good to have the players--who, by the way, ARE some of the best in the league--ignored and dismissed just because they play for Detroit.

I don't know what will happen on Friday. I am hoping the Wings can get it together and win on home ice (which I KNOW they can,) but I'm not counting on anything. I thought they would win last night--well, until I got the feeling around 7:00 that it was NOT going to happen--and we all know how THAT turned out. If Detroit doesn't do it, I will have a time of mourning and being extremely depressed, but life will go on. There will be a bitterness in my soul that will go much, much deeper than what I feel about the Ducks winning two years ago--and will NEVER go away. However, I am, first and foremost, a Red Wing's fan and I do bleed not only red, but white as well, and will continue to as long as I live. Whatever happens on Friday will happen--there is, of course, always next year.

I'm not all that surprised by this, as I had a 'feeling' they were losing shortly before the game began. I hate the entire world right now. >:(

Again?


In less than 7 hours--PLEASE, no overtime tonight--we will know whether the Wings will be bringing the Cup home for the 12th time. OR if they will be bringing the Penguins back for game number seven. And I am a mess. I can't think, write, or speak with any amount of sanity. Puck drop is in less than three hours and I'm about to puke my guts out.

Can the Wings win tonight? Of course. WILL the Wings win tonight. Who knows. Anyone looking at this game in an unbiased way knows that the Wings are the better team, but that doesn't mean they are destined to win. A good/bad bounce of the puck can determine the outcome either way--and has in many games. The Penguins can still win tonight AND Friday and pull off one of the greatest upsets in history. And I, for one, don't assume anything.

A win tonight will put Detroit that much further ahead of all other US teams in Stanley Cup wins--and will put them one more closer to taking over the number two slot from Toronto on the all-time wins list. (Toronto has 13 wins--under various team names.) A win tonight will make Detroit the first team to get back-to-back Cup wins in 11 years--since they did it in '98. And they will, once again, break various records that they broke last year. Time is dragging.

Detroit 5-Pittsburgh 0






Tonight was an absolutely HUGE win for Detroit. This now means they have two chances to win one more game for the Stanley Cup 2009. Having Datsyuk back in the lineup was, I believe, the difference maker tonight. The Wings chased the Pittsburgh goalie out of the game in the second period and never looked back. They played hard, kept the 'skate to the throat,' and didn't let up at all. The frustration of the Pittsburgh players was kind of fun, except for the fact that some of the Wings could have been hurt badly because of it. I will stop there--I don't want to be a poor winner.

This game has given me back some hope. They now don't have to play again until Tuesday, so they will get some much needed rest--and some time to heal their broken and bruised bodies. (Good grief, but it got warm in here all of a sudden--there are definitely some nice bodies on the Wings' roster.) GO WINGS!!!!!!!

(Baby Boy played crazy good tonight and got his third goal of the play-offs!!!!!!)

Tonight

As I am writing this, in a little more than four hours, the puck will drop for game 5 of the Finals. For all intents and purposes, this is make or break time for the Wings. If they lose tonight, the chances aren't great that they will win the Cup this year. And I am not sure they have it in them to win. They are tired, beat-up, and frustrated as hell. And things won't change anytime soon.

The Wings can beat the Penguins any day of the week and twice on Sunday--as long as they are playing on a level field (rink ;)). But, they have not had any time to rest and revive before going into this series. And it has shown. The Wings had to play and beat MUCH stronger teams than the Penguins just to get this far, and they are tired. Besides, Datsyuk has been injured and hasn't played since the Chicago series--and he has been missed.

Thankfully, Datsyuk will be in the line-up tonight. However, because he has missed so many games, it is hard to say how much good he will be. I'm hoping just the fact he will be playing will give a boost to the team--it couldn't hurt, I don't think. In less than 7 seven+ hours, we'll know.

I'm sure this post sounds very haphazard and disjointed--as my brain is at this time. I can't think of much else, other than the game. This SHOULD be the Wings year, but it just may not happen.

I guess I needed to write this as I write a pessimistic post every time I feel down. I'm not too hopeful that this year the Wings will win number 12. And I WILL be seriously depressed if it doesn't happen. I take that back--while I will be sad because the Wings don't win, I will be devastated because this would mean that The Boy will get his name on the Cup. And I will consider this as bad--if not worse--than Anaheim being on it. He doesn't deserve it--at least not yet--and I couldn't handle it. I'm sure this blog will go dark for awhile if I see The Boy awarded the Cup--it just will be too hard for me to go on.

The Wings have put on quite a show this year--especially in the post-season. When compared to their regular season, they have done more than a lot of people thought they would. I am a loyal Red Wing fan and will be always. I appreciate the players, the organization, and all of the entertainment I have had watching them. If they don't do it this year, then there is always next year. That being said, I am already anticipating my depression. :(

Things You Can Buy On Amazon.com


Anyone knows you can buy almost anything on Amazon, but did you know you can buy uranium? Supposedly, it is to be used to test geiger counters, but I have no idea if this is true. Whether this is something you actually can buy or not, the customer comments for this item are absolutely hysterical. For example:



"Picked this up for use in one of my kid's 'diversity' projects in school (Great Success!), and stuck the leftovers in the cabinet next to the baking soda.

Ran out of toothpaste, and remembered how you're supposed to be able to use baking soda to clean your teeth, so of course, I accidentally used this instead, and Wow! all I can say is, my teeth have never been cleaner! They sparkle, they tingle, and for some reason, they STAY clean now, no matter what. Highly recommended!

However, when I ran out of that fire-ant killer powder stuff, I figured I would try some for that too.

Big mistake!

Boy, it sure did not kill those ants!

Fortunately, those suckers get slower as they get bigger, so I have been able to use a shovel to take care of most of them, one at a time though, the sneaky devils.

And the darn trash man refuses to take them away..

I would have given this product 5 stars for the teeth and the project on embracing diversity, but I deducted one star because of the giant mutant ants."

and

"I bought this to power a home-made submarine that I use to look for prehistoric-era life forms in land-locked lakes around my home town in Alaska. At first I wasn't sure if this item would (or could) arrive via mail, but I was glad to see it showed up with no problems. Well, almost no problems.

Unfortuantly my mom opened my mail, because she does not respect people's privacy. She was pretty upset to see Uranium Ore. After a long argument and me running away from home again, she finaly stopped being such an idiot and I was able to get back to work.

The quality of this Uranium is on par with the stuff I was bying from the Libyans over at the mall parking lot, but at half the price! I just hope the seller does not run out, because I have many projects on my list including a night vision sasquatch radar, an electromagnetic chupakabra cage, a high velocity, aerial, weighted Mothman net and super heated, instant grill cheese sandwhich maker."

Funny, funny stuff!! :D

Please!!! Don't Reproduce!!!!

Not Always Right has stories of some of the MOST stupid people I have ever heard of. Here is a great example:

Me: “[Beauty supply store], how can I help you?”

Caller: *almost sobbing* “I need help! Do you know about permanent waves?”

Me: “Yes, we carry a few different brands. Did you buy one here?”

Caller: “No, I had one done by a friend. I don’t know where she bought it. I need to know…is it true that you can get pregnant if you have a perm while you’re on your period?”

(At this point I’m hoping it’s a prank call. I try to keep my voice professional.)

Me: “No, ma’am. A perm can’t cause that.”

Caller: “Are you sure?”

Me: “Yes, I am 100% positive having your hair permed can’t make you pregnant.”

Caller: “Oh, thank God!” *hangs up*

OMG!!!!

This almost made me forget last night's game.
