Mommy, Mommy!

Where do postal supervisors come from?

No one is quite certain, but the "Rock Theory" seems to be the most credible.

What is the "Rock Theory", Mommy?

When the US Postal Service finds itself with open supervisory positions, the Postmaster General sends people out very late at night to pick up rocks. Anything that crawls out from under these rocks is immediately made a postal supervisor!

~ Special thanks to Sean B., a retired postal worker, for providing me with the information regarding the "Rock Theory."

Manic Monday

How did you celebrate your last birthday?
Birthday? What is this thing you call a birthday? Are they those things that make you get older?
I don't have 'em. Getting older is not for me!
Instead, on November 20 each year, I celebrate "Buy Me A Present Day."
It is, of course, celebrated by my friends and family buying me presents
(but I don't get any older).

What's the last thing you bought yourself, just for fun?
Probably a stuffed animal. I simply adore those cute little things, and there are always really cute ones on sale after every holiday.

Here are some of the smaller ones...

What would the child you once were think of the adult you have become?
Let's just say that she'd be very disappointed.

Clean Up Time

I thoroughly detest it when people post photos without cleaning them up, especially when it takes only a few simple clicks to make the photos ablolutely perfect. More work for me...

Two now lovely photos of George Harrison being "attacked" by fans.

A Little Humor To Brighten A Gloomy Day

A couple was going out for the evening. They had spent considerable time getting ready, dressing up, putting the cat out, etc.

When the taxi arrived to take them to their destination, the couple opened the door of their house to leave. The cat, waiting nearby, seized the opportunity and quickly shot back inside.

The couple didn't want their cat to be shut inside the house, so the wife went out to the taxi while the husband went back inside to get the cat. Not wanting the taxi driver to know that the house was going to be empty, she told the taxi driver her husband was just going inside to say goodbye to her mother.

A few minutes later, the husband stepped into the taxi cab.

"Sorry it took so long," he said. "The stupid old thing was hiding under the bed and I had to poke her with a coat hanger to get her to come out!"

You are very over the top and a bit overwhelming.
You have a fiery personality, and you can give anyone a good jolt.
You can easily take things up a couple notches, no matter what crowd you're running with.

What do you order when you eat Chinese food?
I Chinese food!
It's always so hard to choose just one thing. Egg Foo Yung, General Tso's Chicken, Lo Mein...
That's why I like to go to the Chinese BUFFET!

How much have you controlled the course your life has taken?
I honestly don't think that I've ever had any contol over the train wreck that is my life, and whoever is controlling it is one sick bastard!

Whose opinion do you value when deciding how to vote?
Since voting is supposed to be about choosing a representative who best supports my beliefs, the only opinion that counts is mine.

You Are An Exclamation Point

You are a bundle of... well, something.
You're often a bundle of joy, passion, or drama.

You're loud, brash, and outgoing. If you think it, you say it.
Definitely not the quiet type, you really don't keep a lot to yourself.

You're lively and inspiring. People love to be around your energy.
(But they do secretly worry that you'll spill their secrets without even realizing it.)

You excel in: Public speaking

You get along best with: the Dash

Save The Whales!

Show your love of whales today!

The Japanese whalers still refuse to put their harpoons away. Recently, the Australian Customs vessel, the Oceanic Viking, reported that the Japanese whaling fleet has killed at least five more whales in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary, including a mother and calf.

It's time to kiss whaling goodbye.

XOXO for whales!

In honor of Valentine's Day this week:

What is the most romantic movie that you've ever seen?

Ewwwww... Romantic movies!

The most romantic movies I can tolerate are the Disney "Princess" movies, Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella,etc.

If you could be the lover of any person alive other than your current lover, who would you pick?

Michael Schenker!!!!!
But you already knew that, didn't you?!

What scents remind you of a loved one?
My son, Michael, tends to overdo it with Axe cologne, so when I smell it, I tend to think that he must be around somewhere...

Feeling Domestic

Domestic is about the last word that applies to me. As long as I have a place to lay my head at night that I can call my own, I am happy. I don't much worry about what it looks like. But recently, I've become obsessed with the idea of getting new kichen curtains. I'm not certain when or why this became so important to me, but I finally bought them last night. I was hanging them as soon as I walked in the door.

Here they are...

Ain't they pretty?!

I Iz Not Stoopid!

Sarcastic, yes. Stupid, no.

You Are a Total Brainiac

You're amazingly brilliant. Some would even say genius.
You're curious, thoughtful, analytical, and confident.

You take on difficult subjects because you want to... not because you have to.
No field of knowledge is too complicated or intimidating for you.

You've got the brains to do anything you want.
It's possible you end up doing everything you want.

Protect America's Miners

Having had relatives who were mineworkers, this is something that is very important to me...

I just found out that the government agency in charge of mine safety hasn't done its job for more than six years. You can learn more about this here.

The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) failed to assess fines on more than 4,000 penalties over the last six years for mines that violated safety and health regulations.

This is an affront to workers who put their lives at risk every day. I already told the mine safety agency to get its act together. Please join me.

Is there anything too serious to joke about? If so, what falls into that category for you?
A lot of times, joking is the best way to relieve the pain of serious issues. I don't think that there is anything too serious to joke about for that reason. You just have to be careful that it is not done too much or others might not understand.

Would you rather be a tortured genius or a happy simple-minded person? Why?
The key word here is "happy." I'd much rather be stupid and happy than brilliant and miserable.

A dear friend or family member has a terminal illness and is in agony. He/she wants you to help him/her die. What would you do?
Having seen first hand the devastation caused by the so called treatments for truly terminal patients have not only to the patient but also to his family and friends, I would support this person's decision to die...
I don't know that I could physically do anything to help the person die, but I could stand by the decision of, "Give me morphine and let me die," especially in the case of a disease like brain cancer.
