Sunday Night, Open ThreadPosted: February 27, 2011 Filed under: just because, open thread 15 Comments
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 | EW.com
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’m not watching and I feel this way about the whole thing.
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!”
Police Won’t Boot Protesters From Wisconsin Capitol : NPR
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
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.
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.
Aww, ya ruined the puzzle!
Ohh, I’ve gotta report to jury assembly tomorrow at 10 AM, so off to bed for me.
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..
Shoot…my scroll down was too far and somehow I hit the post comment button. 😦
Anyone else who may be up late tonight, you just have to check this out:
Since sky dancing is so sizzling tonight, here’s a video for your amusement.
