GUITARS ARE LIKE SEX...


That's why I love Michael Schenker!

Manic Monday

What sound or noise do you love?
It should be quite obvious that I love the sound of Michael Schenker's guitar.


What sound or noise do you hate?
I'm hearing it right now!
THUNDER
An audible reminder of lousy weather.

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
I'd rather do just about ANYTHING other than my current job!
But seriously, I have always wanted to be a musician. I just got kinda sidetracked along the way.

What profession would you not like to do?
I couldn't last a single day in any branch of the armed forces. I positively cannot follow orders.

A Tribute To George Carlin


Earlier this week, comedian, George Carlin, died at the age of 71. Most certainly, he was one of the funniest men of our time.

Famous for his routines about the seven words that you can't say on television, he also often joked about the many euphemisms for death.

It is only fitting that this week's Thursday 13 be this...

Thirteen ways to tell you what happened to George Carlin this week

1. Mr. Carlin passed away.
2. He has cashed in his chips.
3. He kicked the bucket.
4. He's gone to his reward.
5. He just up and croaked.
6. He bought the big one.
7. As a matter of fact, he bought the farm.
8. Now he is no longer with us.
9. He's pushing up daisies.
10. He met his maker.
11. He has joined his ancestors.
12. He left this earth.
13. He's playing at that big comedy club in the sky.

Manic Monday

Are you a talker or a listener? Is it ever possible to really be both?
It depends upon the other people I'm with. If they have something interesting or amusing to say, I'm a listener. If it's just chit-chat, I'm more of a talker.
It is possible to be both, just not at the same time!

Do you think God has a sense of humor?
Well... To answer this I'd have to believe that there is a God. I'm not certain that I do...
But if I were one of those Bible people who believes that humans were created in God's image, then it would seem obvious that s/he does, since humans all have some sort of sense of humor.

Do you believe in love at first sight? Have you ever experienced it?
Love at first sight?
Pah! It's called lust!

It's All About Love

When two people love each other and want to spend the rest of their lives together, they get married. That's what I was taught. That's what I believe...
And it doesn't matter if these two people are man & woman, two men, two women, or transgender.
Love is love. Commitment is commitment!

The California Supreme Court seems to agree with me, having decided that denying same-sex couples the right to marry is unconstitutional. Unfortunately, proponents of bigotry and hate have collected signatures in an attempt to invalidate the California Supreme Court decision. And they won't stop with California, extremists are even trying to add a ban of marriage for same-sex couples to the U.S. Constitution!

We are at a turning point in our nation's history. Please, stand up against this discrimination. Sign the Million for Marriage petition.

Every committed couple deserves to enjoy the privileges and responsibilities conferred by marriage. Add your name to the petition and be a part of the movement to fight for marriage equality for all.

Thank you!

I'll Pay Anything Except Attention!

Your Attention Span is Short

What attention span? It's difficult for anything to keep your interest.
You are so easily distracted, it's a wonder you could finish this quiz!
You find focusing a challenge. Your mind tends to wander to the strangest places.

While it may be hard for you to complete tasks, you're very creative.
You are easily inspired, and you are often thinking of something interesting.
The world would be a boring place without people like you.

If your personality had to be summed up as a sandwich, what kind of sandwich would you be?
I would be a Pittsburgh style cheeseburger.
What is this?
The burger is served between two slices of thick crusty bread, with coleslaw and fries ON the sandwich!
A wacky Pittsburgh original, just like me.

If you knew that someone was dying, but didn’t know, would you tell him the truth or deceive him about it?
I'd try to continue our relationship as it had always been, but if the person asked me about the situation, I would answer honestly. I definitely would not bring up the subject myself...

Do you dress the same when you are depressed as you do when you are very happy?
Definitely not. When I am depressed I tend to not care much about my appearence.

Top 5 On Friday

Since I am responsible for the topic of this week's meme at The Music Memoirs, I suppose that I had better post some answers (lest I be lynched by the Meme Mistress).

Top 5 postal songs

1. Return To Sender - Elvis Presley

In spite of what many people think, this is NOT a valid postal endorsement!

2. Postmarked Birmingham - Blackhawk
It doesn't get much more postal than this country tune...

3. In Your Letter - REO Speedwagon
And we all know who delivers your letter...

4. Sealed With A Kiss - Gary Lewis & The Playboys
"I'll send you all my love every day in a letter..."

5. Already Gone - Eagles
"The letter that you wrote me made me stop and wonder why..."

Manic Monday

What is your ideal age?
29, or old enough to know better, too young to care!
I AM 29! I have been for the past 18 years!

What is your best excuse for being late?
"Sorry, I got stuck behind a 'Layla train'"!
"Layla trains" were given this name by me because my dog (Layla) could pull them faster than they move. These trains come through quite frequently in the Mon Valley, especially in the summertime. They are very frequently a cause for tardiness.

If you had to give yourself a nickname what would it be?
And my username is...
She-Schenker
A username IS a nickname, so I've already given myself one.

The Beach Test

These results appear to be 100% accurate to me...

What the Beach Test Says About You

You are a loner, and you're fine with that. You find the most fulfillment in solitude. And you never feel more lonely than when you're in a crowd.

You fall in love with ease and confidence. Even if you've had bad experiences in the past, each new love is a reason to start completely over.

You are deeply passionate about several things in your life. You're not passionate about much... and the few passions you have are truly obsessions.

Your sense of humor is goofy and silly. You are good at making almost anyone laugh.

You have accomplished a difficult task and hear someone else taking the credit. How do you deal with the situation?
Silently seethe. Not much I can do about it really. Well, maybe I'd bitch, just a little...

If you had to marry someone that you presently know unromantically, and spend the rest of your life as their spouse, who would you choose?
Paul OBrien. He was OIC at our office several years ago. Nice guy, and an absolute hunk, so if everything else in the relationship went sour, at least I'd have something pretty to look at!

If you knew that in one year you would die suddenly, would you change anything about the way you are living now?
Party hard! What the fuck, I'm gonna die in a year anyway!
