Excellent!

I believe I mentioned somewhere (maybe it was twitter... or maybe it was here, I'm too lazy to go look) that my pilates instructor was participating in the US Adult Figure Skating Championships this weekend. 

Well, she came in Second Place!  That's second in the country... Wow!

Congratulations Cynthia!

Well I Like the Panther Part

You Are a Black Panther
You see through people. You understand others' motives and plans.
You have a knack for predicting the future. You just know what people are going to do.

People are attracted to you. You are naturally able to influence other people's thoughts.
You have the charisma to be a beloved guru or dictator. It's all about how you handle it.

Black is much easier to wear than white - I always get white stuff dirty.  As for the charisma bit... right.  Whatever.

Stolen from Sam.

Happy Easter Everyone

Instead of a cute bunny picture, I'm gonna send you over to Jihad Gene's place.  Take seven minutes and watch the video he has posted. 

North Platte, Nebraska - WW2. 

It's perfect for an Easter Sunday.

Current Best Commerical

As I said in the comments to LeeAnn on the last post... this commercial cracks me up every time I see the twitter bit. 

It won't let me embed - so go here to see it.

I had no idea it was a Palm Pre commercial - I really want one...

The Young Dog

Way back in 1987 and 88, our dog was a puppy. 

She had the ungainly phase... all skinny with floppy ears:



But it didn't take her long to grow up!  Not to mention grow a lovely coat and get those ears to stand up straight. 

She LOVED the snow:



Her favorite game was to run in the snow and grab mouthfuls along the way. 

Yes, you do notice a long leash on her, even though she's in a fenced yard.  Until we had a chance to get her into puppy classes, we could not catch her when she didn't want to be caught.  This was maddening.  However, it took 1 class with the obedience trainer and we were on the way.  She was very smart.  We trained for 2 years because she liked it so much.




By the next summer, she was nearly a year old and for many years remained at her photogenic best... even when the carpet was a hideous color. 



All you had to do was call out "Sam!"  When she looked, you said, "close your mouth" - which she would do and then tilt the head to the side - viola! Perfect picture every time. 

What a fun dog she was.

What Color Pantyhose Should You Get For Your Car?

The guys from Car Talk received a call from Bill, who lives up in Alaska near Mt. Redoubt (the volcano that recently blew its top).  This is a little over 6 minutes long...

Stump the Chumps: Bill and the pantyhose vs. Mt. Redoubt.

I hope this link works for a while (I have no idea how long they leave them up) so click on over to listen.  I download the show weekly to my ipod.

Now turn up your speakers, listen, and laugh.

Who Signed the Consent?

Ah the morning Starbucks adventure.  You never know what you'll get.  Mostly it's pretty much the same thing.  That's okay since I'm not really into weirdness before having my morning caffeine.  But every once in a while we see "interesting" people in the store (BTW - I'm pretty sure those who work there see "interesting" people every day - I'm not there long enough to catch the show for the most part)

Today's peeps of interest were 2 young teen boys ahead of me in line with a 3rd friend waiting off to the side, all of them in sweats with sleeves rolled up - one in shorts.  I'm guessing around 14 years old, certainly not older than that.  One of them had the hyperactivity thing going, he could not stand still.  This doesn't bother me, but I did take a step back so during his bouncing about he didn't step on me. 

Fidget, fidget, fidget...
Bounce, bounce, bounce... 

All the while talking a mile a minute to his friend trying to decide what he wanted to drink.  He gets to the counter, leans over and props his elbows on it (his feet never stopped moving though) and is still trying to figure out which drink he wants.  The young lady behind the counter (who I see often and is a very nice person) was very good at pinning him down and getting his order underway.  He then looks down at his left lower arm, which is resting on the counter and says - do you like my new tat? 

I think she's in her late twenties (not high school), she's pretty, and smart (we've had conversations on slow days).  She was completely at a loss.  She said, "Sorry I don't know much about tattoos, you can get your drink right over there, can I help the next person?"

Teen boy turns around and sure enough I can see a black snake tattooed on the left inside forearm.  He walks by and  I hear him say to his friend... "I asked her if she liked my tat". 

It was all I could do to keep from bursting out laughing.  The whole thing was hilarious.  He was so proud of his little bit of art and wanted the girl to tell him how cool it was.

Of course I had to then wonder, which parent signed the consent for such a young boy to get a tattoo?  I think you have to be 18 to get one yourself.  Not that I have anything against tattoos, just that I think it would be better to wait until you're a little older before putting something so permanent on your skin. 

Makes me wonder if he bounced and fidgeted and talked at his parents until they gave up and just let him get the thing so he'd leave them alone.  Or if one or both parents is into tattoos and thought nothing of it. Or if he did it without consent and his parents don't know it yet...

My husband believes that young people trying to decide what to do in life, should consider going into the tattoo removal business.  He feels this will be an up and coming career in the future.  Considering the popularity of tattoos, and the age of many who are getting them...  I think he's on to something.

The Latest Person Vying for an Obama Administration Post

I was over at Grau's and saw this post

Makeup and fashion gurus sue Queen Latifah

A makeup artist and a fashion stylist claim in coordinated lawsuits that they got ugly treatment from Queen Latifah when she cheated them out of $1 million.


Sounds to me like Queen Latifah is setting herself up to become one of the in-crowd at the White House.  Could she be vying for Style Czar in Michelle Obama's cabinet?

Michelle certainly needs to appoint someone fast, if only to save her from more dresses with spit-wads pasted all over them and choosing outfits with clashing accessories in 8 different colors.

Looks like QL is absolutely the perfect person.  She has style, she doesn't pay her bills, and she can move herself up from Queen to Czar. 

A Perfect Fit.

UPDATE:  See I think Joan agrees with me!!!
