FUN: The Republican, the Libertarian, and the Democrat enter a restaurant

Monday, July 14, 2014

Three guys walk into a restaurant …..

A Republican, in a wheelchair, entered a restaurant one afternoon and asked the waitress for a cup of coffee. The Republican looked across the restaurant and asked,”Is that Jesus sitting over there?”
The waitress nodded “yes!” So, the Republican requested that she give Jesus a cup of coffee, on him.

The next patron to come in was a Libertarian, with a hunched back. He shuffled over to a booth, painfully sat down, and asked the waitress for a cup of hot tea. He also glanced across the restaurant and asked, “Is that Jesus, over there?” The waitress nodded, so the Libertarian asked her to give Jesus a cup of hot tea, “My treat.”

The third patron, to come into the restaurant, was a Democrat on crutches. He hobbled over to a booth, sat down and hollered, “Hey there honey! How’s about getting me a cold mug of Miller Light!” He, too, looked across the restaurant and asked, “Isn’t that God’s boy over there?” The waitress nodded, so the Democrat directed her to give Jesus a cold beer. “On my bill,” he said loudly so everyone in the restaurant could hear.

As Jesus got up to leave, he passed by the Republican, touched him and said, “For your kindness, you are healed.” The Republican felt the strength come back into his legs, got up and began to praise the Lord.

Jesus passed by the Libertarian, touched him and said, “For your kindness, you are healed.” The Libertarian felt his back straightening up, he raised his hands and he, too, began to praise the Lord.

Then, Jesus walked, with a huge smile on his face, towards the Democrat. The Democrat jumped up and yelled, “Don’t touch me……. I’m on disability.”

FUN: “What’s your least favorite word?”

Sunday, January 26, 2014

TRY

“NO! … Try not! … Do or do not… there is no try.” (To do it justice, you must say the word try with all the revulsion and disgust you can put on it. Like you were talking about a rapist, a child murderer, or a politician!) — Yoda (Fictional character from George Lucas’s “Star Wars” movie)

It’s a prediction of failure and setting up the excuse: “I tried”.

Argh!

FUN: Movie AMERICAN HUSTLE — recommended

Sunday, December 22, 2013

AMERICAN HUSTLE — recommended

Interesting plot, but the two girls steal the show. AA for the sex that just exudes thru the screen JL for a yeoman’s job at taking a small part and stealing the show. This movie actually made me feel sorry for the politicians. That’s a powerful statement since they are like used car salesmen. Worth the price.

FUN: Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Hunger Games: Catching Fire

 

Movie is technically excellent.

The new reserved seating, like the stage plays, causes great confusion, long lines, and extra time to get everyone settled down.

Katniss is not as sexy as she was in the first one. (Guess she’s gone Hollywood. Had work done? Lost weigh? Toned up more? And hence, she’s lost some of the “softness of features” and sexiness.)

One main character changed, effie, and it hurts.

Best line: “remember who the real enemy is”.

Something we should all remember!

FUN: Gambling game — pull tabs

Thursday, November 7, 2013

Cars game:

Winning car: $100 (15 cars)

One $50
Three $25
Three $20
Five $10
Twenty $5

Progressive depending upon game.

675 tickets sold at $1 each

###

For each race, $100 is held out and added to the progressive pool,

So for example, last week, #7 was a $500 progressive. If #7 was the winning car there was a $500 adder. #2 was a $400 progressive.

I won with one of my three other holders, #10.

Then $100 is added to the #2 progressive to make it $500.

When I was playing, I got the #2 and #7 and one $25 and one $20 and two $10 and two $5. At that point, I stopped playing. I believed I had the largest portion of the value winnable.

FUN: What a water bill

Thursday, October 24, 2013

It’s no secret to those who know me that I have “night terrors”.

(A special form of “mental illness” that makes one crazy in the middle of the night!)

Last night’s was so funny.

I dreamt I received a Water Bill from the shore house where they subtracted my address in VA (i.e., 1641) from the house address (i.e., 51) to compute my water and sewer used. My “fright” was I was at the office and couldn’t make anyone see the error.

It was really funny.

Not so funny about the “cold sweat” and changing everything at about 3AM.

But now I can laugh about it.

… maybe that bisll is in the mail?

FUN: Drink your pickle juice

Yes, You Can (And Should!) Reuse Pickle Juice
Katie Waldeck
October 19, 2013

*** begin quote ***

Tossing out pickle juice is always a little sad — all that flavor, all that hard work down the drain! Sure, you can reuse pickle juice for your next pickling project, but there are plenty of other things to do with it, both edible and not! Packed with salt and vinegar, it’s no surprise that the stuff is great for recycling. Here are some ideas:

Cooking:

Flavor salad dressings and sauces. Use the pickle juice in lieu of vinegar in recipes.
Add it to mac and cheese!
Liven up soups.
Flavor bland veggies. Drizzle over some steamed or roasted veggies for a great flavor boost.
Lighter boiled potatoes. Add a generous dash of pickle juice to the the boiling water. The flavor works so well, you can skip all the fattening and unhealthy extras like sour cream, mayo, butter, and added salt.
Pickle-y cheese. Marinate soft white cheese in pickle juice for a great tangy appetizer.
Drink it! Try a pickletini. Seriously, it’s a real thing.

*** end quote ***

I do. Drink it that is. Maybe I like it because, like my LOVE of bacon, it served a need for a nutrient my body requires?

Maybe that’s the reason for my happy smiling disposition?

So many questions; so few answers.

FUN: Kemosabe in his Tree Fort

Published on Jul 23, 2013
Kemosabe in his Tree Fort at Animal Wonders
Facts about Kemo start at about 2:12

A prehensile porcupine aka coendou is from South America found in the rainforests of Brazil. They use their prehensile tail to help climb and maneuver in the trees where they spend most of their lives. They are rodents and are closely related to rats and mice. They have 2 large incisors on the top and bottom which are ever-growing and need to be chiseled against each other in order to keep them the right size. Kemosabe only has 1 top incisor so he needs help from a veterinarian to file his teeth so they don’t overgrow and prevent him from being able to eat.

FUN: @tswift13 will keep me out late tonight #tswift #tswift13

Saturday, July 13, 2013

Yes, I finally have a life.

My ex-neice-in-law gave me Taylor Swift concert tickets for tonight’s show.

I’ll be the fat old white guy injineer singing along with all the teeny, tweeny, and teen girls.

Laff!

(Have to stay young someway. And, @tswift13 is excellent role model in a “Secular Progressive” society.)

So, I’m out for fun.

Last time I went to show like this was back in the folk singing 60’s. Although I did see one of PPM’s last shows at George Mason University. (Mary Travers, RIP)

I think Tay is this generation’s folk singer and poetess laureate. And, a very charitable person.

Interesting to me is how she has transitioned from strictly country to country / pop / teen. While growning to womanhood. Sort of like Shirley Temple Black. Wonder if she can reinvent like Madona does; without the sleaze.

Any way.

Maybe I’ll get an autograph. Laff. If for some reason I get a gold wrist band, I’ll pass it to one of the youngsters. What would I say to her? “Good job”!

FUN: Basement in my future?

Saturday, June 8, 2013

Cool http://buff.ly/13m1DaW

There’s something wistful about a basement. I only remember two or three. In NYC apartment, they were disgusting. In my Grand Aunt’s country home, there was a store room of canned and jarred food. In my Air Force days, the Mom of the girl one of my friend’s was dating, was pantry store house of all array of things — neat, clean, and uber organized. Maybe I’ll have one when I eventually move to NH?
