Sunday Night, Open Thread

I have a tale to tell, not a tale more an embarrassment. While working on my puzzle tonight, I decided that I would partake in a little treat of Animal Crackers. We have a constant supply of these little critters in my house because it seems they are fat free. Anyway, as I was working on my cookies and putting together my puzzle, I got a bit carried away. Did you ever realize that an Animal Cracker is about the same size and shape as a puzzle piece? And since these things are fat free, they taste about the same  as the cardboard pieces of the puzzle. Yes, I chomped on a puzzle piece. That I did this to begin with is a funny thing…that I did it 3 times in a span of 5 minutes is pathetic!

So, this is an open thread. Feel free to share a link or two…or an embarrassing story of your own, so I don’t feel so damn foolish.

And here for your enjoyment, a tale of one who steals from the rich and gives to the poor…to trip and trip and trip it up and down!

    So if you are watching the Oscars, here is a bit: Oscars: Melissa Leo drops an f-bomb, Kirk Douglas hams it up | PopWatch |

    Yes, I am watching them. (Wow two embarrassing admissions tonight…I am on a roll.) My only observation so far this evening, I thought Kirk Douglas was dead…for being as old as dirt his face was smoother than the top of Kevin Spacey’s head!

    I think the Wisconsin protesters need Donald Duck to come down and knock some sense into Gov. Walker…and that is no way a call for violence. (Y’all know me better than that!) But I will say this, I would love to see Walker do his own interpretation of “Yikes, and away!”

    Funny. I’ll remember never to eat animal crackers when working a puzzle. 🙂

    And one more for the road: Tripoli headed for a siege as rebels widen control – The Times of India

    TRIPOLI: Muammar Gaddafi clung to his gradually shrinking territory in Libya where the opposition movement appears to be heading towards a siege of Tripoli as the armed rebels were in control of Zawiyah, close to the capital, on Sunday and their red, green and black flag flew above the town.

      I’ll be happy when the killing stops, but I’m not convinced that the wealth of Libya won’t be ripped off from the people like it happened in Iraq.

  5. Dario says:

    It’s a shame, but I believe Walker will win the fight. Because of his win against the unions, he’ll need to improve the economy of WI, and that’s going to be his losing hand.

    Minx, delurking cause you had me laughing insanely and I had to let you know you are not alone. I also do puzzles – jigsaw and crosswords, and yes, I have had similar embarrassments. LOL, still chuckling.

    Dario, the people of any nation will never receive the benefit of the wealth from the resources of the nation, regardless of what term they use to describe the government. Look at the U.S. – 1% of the top echelon make more money than the lower 50% combined. In Libya, as in Egypt, it will be new leader same old sheite under a new label – just like Iran, with hopefully the exception that it won’t be a theocracy. However, witness how the leaders in Iran live, versus the hoi polloi – same old same old.

    My thing is forgetting what I was talking about mid-sentence. Looking with a blank expression at my partner, pleading (for some assistance)to finish my thought, she replies, I need a few more nouns and maybe a verb or something. It also seems that I am getting more forgetful of where I have put things, but it also seems that it is rubbing off on my partner.

    Well…I happened to get a joke in an email from a friend of mine and I’m just going to have to share it with all of you..

    A little silver-haired lady calls her neighbor and says, “Please come over here and help me. I have a killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can’t figure out how to get started.”

    Her neighbor asks, “What is it supposed to be when it’s finished?”

    The little silver haired lady says, “According to the picture on the box, it’s a rooster.”

    Her neighbor decides to go over and help with the puzzle.

    She lets him in and shows him where she has the puzzle spread all over the table.

    He studies the pieces for a moment, then looks at the box, then turns to her and says,

    “First of all, no matter what we do, we’re not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a rooster.”

    He takes her hand and says, “Secondly, I want you to relax. Let’s have a nice cup of tea, and then,” he said with a deep sigh …………
