Quick post...if you can even call it that

I am on vacation in the big bad town of Springfield, Illinois (actually, I'm in Pawnee but you can blink and pass through that town) visiting some of the wife's family. We have visited this wonderful town for the past few Christmas vacations. It's not a bad place but it's not the kind of city that I prefer to live in or care to further visit on vacation as the excitement of this little town has pretty much worn off.

It's the capitol of Illinois although most presume that Chicago is. That's because Chicago is three, four, maybe twenty times bigger than Springfield. AND the governor of the state doesn't reside in the governor's mansion in Springfield. He stays in Chicago...and the locals say that is one of the reasons why he probably won't return to office next year nor do they t want him too. If the next governor decides to hold office in Springfield, they'll have to pull the nailed plywood off the doors and windows of the governor's mansion and clean up the building a little bit. It almost looks like a building down in Florida awaiting a hurricane.

Anyway, it's almost a twelve hour drive but we made it up here from Dallas, Texas in about ten hours. Hopefully, when we leave tomorrow, we'll make it in just as short a time. We believe if we plan on visiting again this time next year that we will fly. I'm tired of the driving since I do ALL of the driving because I don't trust my wife's driving skills. LOL!

Well, I must go put the children to bed for our early rise tomorrow and long journey home. Ah...I can't wait to get home and sleep in my own bed. I haven't slept well since I've been here but I've slept enough to be functional each day without getting a headache. So knock on wood.

Maybe I'll be more interesting reading in the next post.

SNL "Dick in a Box!"

I haven't seen Saturday Night Live in a long time but this past weekend (pre-Christmas) was pretty funny with Justin Timberlake hosting. Go to YouTube and do a search on SNL Timberlake and you'll probably find a few videos caps from that episode.

Here's one to enjoy:

Email humor for 12/21/2006

Mexican Flat Screen Television

I got a B+ in my accounting class

So, I finally found out this past Monday, or was it last Monday, that I passed my accounting class with a B+.

I'm torn between wanting to know what I made on the final and not giving a shit since I passed the class with a B+. Of course, I can set up an appointment with the teacher to see what I made at anytime after the winter break but, again, I'm not really sure I care to. The only thing that makes me want to see how I did is to see how much the 2-4 hours an evening for five days straight benefited me, if at all.

The final was worth 140 points—she grades on a point system. I needed 40 points to pass the class with a 71 or a C- (or C), 70 points to pass with an 82 (B-) or 100 points to pass with a 91 (or A-).

So, I assume that I made somewhere between the 70 and 100 points. I guess that's good enough for me to just assume the studying was worth it.

So, now on to bigger and better least temporarily until the spring semester starts.

Lacey Chabert

Lacey Chabert is all grown up! I always thought she was hot on Party of Five but she was just a child then. But, um, good!

What a man really wants for Christmas...

More from the Frontburner - Benny Hinn

This article cracked me up! I think if Benny Hinn would use some of that money he spends on hair spray to maintain the ULTIMATE comb-over, he could probably have the money he's begging for! RIDICULOUS!

Link the the article here!

Dale Hansen is once witty

I don't usually catch the news, don't care about the news, rarely care about the sports update and I can't take credit for this quote since I snagged it from some other blog called Frontburner. Okay, I do read but I don't make it a point to check the television news broadcasts

Anyway, here is the quote:
Stars defenseman Darryl Sydor is an American citizen. Became official this morning. And you know what this means -- Sydor can live in Farmers Branch now."
By the way, at his request, Sydor attended the ceremony at his son's elementary school, which just happens to be my children's elementary school AND I was in the school about 15 minutes before the ceremony. Ah, the luck!

Do you think it would have been a big deal if I was there and asked for his autograph before the ceremony (as a Canadian citizen) and after (as an American citizen? Would it make his signature worth more if I had both?

Email humor 12/04/2006

Just enough time to quickly post some email humor I received today...

Living careful in their use.

While I was watching the NCAA playoff games last weekend, my wife and I got into a conversation about life and death, and the need for living wills.

During the course of the conversation I told her that I never wanted
to exist in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and taking fluids from a bottle.

She got up, unplugged the TV and threw out all my beer.

Sometimes it's tough being married to a smart ass.

A Christmas Story

'Twas the night before Christmas--Old Santa was pissed.
He cussed out the elves and threw down his list.
Miserable little brats, ungrateful little jerks.
I have a good mind to scrap the whole works!

I've busted my ass for damn near a year,
Instead of "Thanks Santa"--what do I hear?
The old lady bitches cause I work late at night .
The elves want more money--The reindeer all fight.

Rudolph got drunk and goosed all the maids.
Donner is pregnant and Vixen has AIDS.
And just when I thought that things would get better
Those assholes from the IRS sent me a letter,
They say I owe taxes--if that ain't damn funny
Who the hell ever sent Santa Claus any money?

And the kids these days--they all are the pits
They want the impossible--Those mean little shits
I spent a whole year making wagons and sleds
Assembling dolls...Their arms, legs and heads
I made a ton of yo yo's--No request for them,
They want computers and robots...they think - I'm IBM!

Flying through the air...dodging the trees
Falling down chimneys and skinning my knees
I'm quitting this job there's just no enjoyment
I'll sit on my fat ass and draw unemployment.

There's no Christmas this year now you know the reason,
I found me a blonde. I'm going SOUTH for the season!

I really should be studying but...

Instead I found a joyous sport picture on flickr.

Beach volleyball anyone?

Salma Hayek is still gorgeous

I've ALWAYS had a thing for Salma Hayek and photos like this make me wish I knocked her over the head and took advantage of her when I had the chance. Just kidding...but if I had the opportunity...would I have? Hmm....???

I can't help it. I just get lost in her boobs.
