My Place In Humor Space....

the Prankster
(43% dark, 39% spontaneous, 27% vulgar)
your humor style:

Your humor has an intellectual, even conceptual slant to it. You're not
pretentious, but neither are you into what some would call 'low humor'.
You'd laugh at a good dirty joke, but you definitely prefer something
clever to something moist.

probably like well-thought-out pranks and/or spoofs and it's highly
likely you've tried one of these things yourself. In a lot of ways,
yours is the most entertaining type of humor.

Very odd - I've never been a Prankster at all... and Ashton Kutcher - EWWWWW...

Stolen on a whim from the Cheesemistress... who seems to be very Cutting Edge herself.

Happy Birthday to Tammi

Today is Tammi's birthday. It's been a bit over a year since I've met her in person and we talk on the phone every day. She has become one of my dearest friends - and it's all Tammi magic. She has the wonderful gift of making people comfortable - Tammi's World is an excellent place to be.

So, head on over and wish her a Happy Birthday. She hasn't put up a birthday post, so just pick one and leave her good wishes. The best wish of all being that she can manage to get out of the place she's living now - VERY SOON. Dump the neighbors from hell... and... oh yeah... get Cody snipped so he stops trying to hump everything in sight... *grin*

Happy Birthday m'dear!

What's On My Nightstand?

Barb has tagged me with the latest meme... Sadly I don't have any really cool stuff on my nightstand. And even though I've cleaned things up for showing the house - I still do have stuff, after all, I do live in the house!

So let's see... there is a reading light, a clock radio (which is actually the second of the 3 speaker set for this thing), a travel alarm (which is the one I use to wake up in the morning), a crossword puzzle book and pen, at least 2 books - sometimes more. Currently it's Running Scared by Elizabeth Lowell (a lovely woman, excellent writer, and the first of several books that she has signed for me) the other is Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson (which I got a while back and am working my way through - although I do have to read his books carefully - he is also an excellent writer).

That's about it - nothing spectacular. So, now I'm off to do a little Crossword puzzling before going to sleep.

I Get Email

From young son who tells me a few of the things he's learned in Afghanistan...

** in an all out war between camel spiders of Afghanistan and fire
ants from Ft Benning, I believe fire ants would win through superior
numbers despite the 9in long camel spiders that like to attack me at

** before you say "I think that guy has an RPG down there", make sure
it really is an RPG and not a hoe for farming so you don't scare your

** make sure you are in a proper uniform if talking to the command
sergeants major of V corp Europe

** 127 degrees does not give you license to even threaten to take off
your pants....no matter how much you beg.

** military regulations mock you by stating that you may have a whole
24 hours off if you fly 90 hours in one month

** fly the opposite direction that field artillery is firing

** apparently it is almost impossible to find 4 escaped known
terrorists on a base of 5 thousand troops while wearing orange jump
suits in broad daylight

** writing "sniper check" on your saluting hand in a war zone is
frowned upon by most officers

Hangin' Out With Tammi

Over the last few days (since the house has officially been on the market) people have been streaming in the door. As soon as one set gets done... the next set have their turn... which means I've been dashing in and out of my house like a yoyo... very tiring I can tell you.

So today I figured I'd just head on out to Tammi's and spend some time with her - since I'll be moving soon, making it much more difficult to get together. I meant to do this yesterday... (well make that Saturday, because I just noticed that it's after midnight now - but still I'm on Sunday time) but had to do a get together with the lovely real estate lady and chat about things.

Therefore, it was today (Sunday) that I gassed up the van and headed west. Whereupon Tammi and I chit chatted in person, watched movies, and ate dinner (she made me some lovely pot roast with potatoes, carrots, mushrooms... yum!). What movies? Well, Tammi had never seen The Dish which I think is absolutely wonderful (it's hard to believe the PG-13 rating on this - the "language" that gives it the rating is so very innocuous that I had to watch the movie especially to listen for it!). We also watched Spy Game which we both enjoy very much . All in all it was a great day.

The only thing that really bugs me... not one single person toured the house today!!! NO ONE!!! Un-frickin-believable!

My Blogging Personality...

I mean when I get a chance to actually blog...

Your Blogging Type is Logical and Principled
You like to voice your well thought out opinions on your blog.
And if someone doesn't like what you write, you really don't care!
Serious and blunt, sometimes people take your blog the wrong way.
But you're a true and loyal friend to those who truly get you.

Shamelessly grabbed from the Hooker's Girl.

Some Headline Fun

This rather sums up my day I think...

Fun but for the brain freeze

No I didn't eat any ice cream... but there are days...

Lizard Slithers Into Saugus Shop

Sadly, the reptiles I usually see at the store are the 2 legged kind... This one might have been fun to watch while he window shopped.

Last of all... if humans do it, it's considered normal and fun... if chickens do it...

Mystery of Empty Chicken Sex Solved

It's a mystery... Yeah sure...

Today is darling daughter's birthday. She's 26... however, she's not answering her phone when I call and all I wanted to do is tell her she's more than half way to being 50...

It's also blog brother T1G's birthday today. So, if you haven't been over there yet - go wish him a happy year! And since I'm so late in the day with this... a belated wish tomorrow works too.

They're Famous!

My blog sisters Tammi and Bou got top billing on MSNBC today when Jeff Jarvis talked about Florida blogging and the coming hurricane!!! In particular he pointed to this post of Tammi's about all her friends in the possible path of the hurricane. And this post of Bou's about all sorts of things but Jeff mentioned the problem of getting gas.

Then Tammi got an email from a reader saying she had been mentioned on CNN too!!! How cool is that! I went searching CNN's web site - and maybe they just don't have it up yet, or maybe they don't post that stuff online.

So, major congratulations to Tammi and Bou! You two ROCK!

The video of the MSNBC segment is here.

Bloggers are the Best People

Before I go on to later posts of a not so happy day today... let us look back on happier times - last night in fact. I went to dinner with a bunch of bloggers and had a most excellent time! (I really need to spend some time on my sidebar and add a section for bloggers I've met... yeah like I have time for that!)

So it was a nicely boisterous group including Blackfive, blog papa Harvey, his lovely wife TNT, Anathematized, Tammi, Grau, Little Joe, Contagion, and That One Guy.

Excellent dinner, excellent conversation, lots of alcohol... what more could you ask for in a blogger get together. All in all it was a terrific evening. The only thing I forgot was that I had a conference call at 7:45am this morning... so I was a bit tired - but it was more than worth it. The very best people - the very best time!
