Of Men And Mouses

Anytime I think of Man/Mouse, my mind instantly resorts to the Tom & Jerry episode where Jerry's nephew, Nibbles, asks himself: "Are you a man, or a mouse? You are a Mouse!" This little dude was fierce. Ever thought about that? Ever thought about mice, or chihuahuas or other smaller entities that have practically no fear? They think they are the biggest, baddest things on the Planet! Kids are the same way (the small humans, not the baby goats).

What are we dealing with here? Is it the self deluded idea that they are the world's greatest ninjas? Is it optimism? Is it naivety? Or is it a subconscious need to self mutilate? Think about this little guy. Watch that cartoon! He doesn't care! Who has the problem with his "no fear" attitude? Uncle Jerry, that's who! Heck! one point, he even captivates Tom's disbelief for a moment. Tom can NOT figure out what this little kid mouse is doing; just marching up to him and calling "attack!"

The element of surprise is very useful in some situations. But, bravery should not be overlooked. Nibbles actually THINKS he has a chance to whoop Jerry's butt!
Yeah, maybe I'm bored.. I'm blogging about a Tom & Jerry cartoon... I'm picking apart a child's show. But.. I think there's something to be said for those smaller bad boys. The ones who have no fear, regardless of the reason (or maybe I just wanted a reason to post this cute picture).

Victim By Association

These are the most annoying people EVER. You all know who I'm talking about. The people that feel as if they have become a victim of a situation just because they know, or are associated with, the person who is actually dealing with the issue. They inch into a closer relationship with the actual victim during the course of the situation and develop a sense of attack by their own choice. What does this benefit/prove? Are things THAT easy for you in life? That you have to look around you and find situations that can assist you in losing sleep?

OH...the humor in the situation. Drama is one thing.. physical pain and suffering is another. Maybe one day you'll suffer from a case of sympathy hemorrhoids.

That's all I have to say about that!

And, FYI.. I have the Email notification thingy fixed. I think.
Enter your Email over there -->
where it says "Follow Me"

Watch where you put your wenis

What in the world is the deal with the elbow? I mean really. Let's talk about this.

I didn't, until recently, know that there was a name for the skin that covers the elbow. It's known as the "Wenis" (Insert laughter here). Well, how odd is this body part? You can't really feel it when something happens to it. You can pull that skin and twist it, bite it and contort it beyond reason. No pain.

Haul off and bump that bad boy on the corner of a desk and you'll know it (as well as everyone else around you). It's NOT funny, my friend. It's painful. Who named this the "funny" bone? Must have been a smart one! I mean, I get it.. it's the distal end of the Humerus bone.. so yes.. I understand. Humerus = Funny. Got it.
But dang it! That's not funny!

A Tribute

Honest. Always thinking. Priceless. Painfully beautiful. You're my dream.

Best friend. Intense. Random. Truthful. Happy to be yours. Diamond in the rough. Always there. Yours forever.

My life. Indescribable. Charming. Heartbeat. Amazing. Everything I need. Love.

Life. Or Something Like It..(Part 2)

I had a pretty good reaction to the first post.. so here are a few more. I found an amazing site that has these and I had to share the ones that made me laugh. So, these aren't mine. But man, they are spot on!

1. Put bread in toaster- Not toasted. Put bread in toaster again- Charcoal.
2. Laying in bed texting, drop the phone on your face.
3. Can't find mouse cursor on the screen. Violently attack mouse.
4. Phone has low battery.. phone has enough battery to remind you every three minutes.
5. 15,000 tabs open. Can't figure out which on the sound is coming from.

Ok.. reading that website: 2 things happened. #1- I almost passed out from lack of oxygen due to laughing and #2- I was inspired to try it myself. So, here are some of my original thoughts in a similar format.

1. Someone sends you a text, you call them- No answer. Two seconds after you hang up, you get a text from them.
2. Yawn + Hiccup. Enough said.
3. Good sugar from your sweet doggie. Doggie licks his butt.
4. Eat popcorn. Spend the rest of the day finding kernels in your teeth.
5. Try to make funny one-liners. Not funny.

Ok.. so that didn't work out as well as I had planned. But, hey! It gave me something to do for a little while. Which means, I now have to get back to work and play catch up.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend with lots of laughs and priceless memories! Or, for those of you who would rather NOT remember this time in your life... drink up!

So, I know I've been slacking on my blogging lately. But, I don't feel the need to write every single day. I write when it hits me. Kinda like a boomerang. A big, speeding, boomerang.

Today, I've had a few things that have crossed my path. I have a few people in my life that are dealing with things; they are not particularly struggling, but they are definitely looking for guidance in one way or the other. So, at lunch I was thinking..

If life is, indeed what we make it.. then why do things (that ultimately don't matter) affect us to the point of creating a disturbance in our regular life cycle? Lose sleep, eat differently, change our daily regimen, snap at people around us because we are stressed.. What do those things profit us? None of those things make a difference in the outcome of the situation we are dealing with. All we can do is play on the one string we have. .. that's our Attitude. 

"I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and
90 percent how I react to it.
And so it is with you...we are in charge of our attitudes."
-Charles Swindoll

Attitude gets a bad rep. When someone hears the term "attitude" they automatically think of a negative reaction. "She's got a bad attitude" , "I sure wish he would change his attitude" , "Your attitude STINKS"

Webster's Dictionary defines attitude as:
a mental position with regard to a fact or state.

It is up to us how as to how we allow our attitude to define us. Negative thoughts and words get the most attention. We never hesitate to complain about a bad day. We want people to KNOW when life has peed in our Cheerios.

How many times do you hear someone say something GREAT has happened to them!? Usually when something great has actually happened... yeah, I know. But what about the greatness in the fact that you woke up with another day to live? The greatness of having people that love you or being able to go to work. Where are the words and praises when we haven't had a bad day? Maybe it's not GREAT.. but it's better than most.

I think I am going to make a point to express to someone on a daily basis, how my day has been. If it's bad.. then it's bad.. but if it's just a normal day?.. That's GREAT! I challenge you to keep a mental note (or a physical calendar for those of you that need proof) of your daily life. Do it for two weeks. Everyday.. put a plus or a minus. At the end of those two weeks, see how you stack up.

If you have more pluses than minuses? Then your attitude should be a constant reminder to people that you are happy.
If you have more minuses than pluses? Then, praise God for the pluses and see if there's something you can do to change that pattern..
If you have all minuses and not a single plus?  I'll pray for you.. and I have a number for a good doctor that you may want to see.

Hey. At least you're not this guy..

Books and Things

Happy Friday, Folks! It is such a wonderful day, is it not? Got air in my lungs, shoes on my feet, twizzlers in my cabinet and the sun is shining down on me. Woot.

So, today I've been pondering a couple of things and maybe I could share one or twelve. About a  month ago I decided (with some persuasion of the friendly kind) to attempt to write a book. A real book. Not a fake one. This one even has words in it! Which is great, because I have NO artistic abilities. My stick men have severe cases of scoliosis and elephantitis. So, a book with pictures is out of the question for me. <insert pouty face here>

Anywhoo.. Of course I thought it would be fun to do. I enjoy writing.. so why not give it a try? Let me just tell you this: If you are the LEAST bit OCD?.. do NOT attempt to ever write a book. Ever. I not only have had to devote gaboodles of time researching stuff (so the content of said book will be partly accurate), but I am having severe problems with time. I spend waaaaay too much time on one page. I have to make sure it's spelled correctly... swap sentences around.. complete a thought then go back and completely re-work it so it sounds better to me.

Plus? I have ran into the inevitable problem of actually having a life. SO, I can't write as quickly as I want to. Now I have this 5 chapter beginning of a book that I've written and I know how the rest of the book is gonna go.. but I don't have the time to sit down and put it on the screen. I need a secretary.

Then! I read something on the internet about actually having a book published and got all frazzled about it because it seems that if you don't have a best seller? Then basically you are just writing your first book for fun. Not that I am looking to get rich from my book about the Zombie Apocalypse... but I would like to think I could get some kind of return on all of this craziness that is created in my life due to trying to finish this dang thing.

Basically, what the article said is that if you are going to make any money at ALL writing books.. you have to write several. Now, however capable I am at doing that (because I have millions of rampant ideas for entertainment in the form of a story in my head) I don't know if I want to go through this again!
But.. for the most part.. I am enjoying it. I like telling made up stories of zombies and guns and the end of civilization as we know it. Yep. I'm just a little ray of sunshine! :)

Have a great weekend folks. I'll see you again next week. Stay safe and enjoy your friends and family. Kiss your babies.

Some Funnies For Your Friday Eve

Just found some great pictures and thought I would share them with ya.
I laughed at them OUT LOUD.

Just FYI.. If you haven't seen the new Transformer Movie, please make it a point to go watch it. And, make sure you spend the extra few bucks an watch it in 3D. I honestly don't usually go to 3D shows..but I'm telling you.. it was awesome! 2 thumbs up from me! As soon as we left, we were picking out Transformers and Decepticons everywhere in Hattiesburg and Petal. So, beware!
You never know... you just never know.

I had to include this one just because it's Far Side and because I laughed so hard I snorted. That's marital bliss right there, folks. Isn't love grand!?

NOO!! Bruno!!

Life. Or something like it..

People have been asking for me to list a bunch of random thoughts all jumbled into one blog...

Ok. Not really. One person asked me and a few more agreed. SO... since I'm so considerate and kind, I thought I would make a list of some random thoughts. Enjoy.
  1. Gas station bathrooms should only be entered if you are on fire or in a zombie movie, and there isn't another door or any open wilderness within miles.
  2. Something stuck in my teeth.. no toothpick. Ah! The corner edge of this business card looks like a ninja!
  3. If you are in customer service, this means you have chosen to give up your right to cell phone use while you are at work. Put yours down and help me with what I'm asking before we go find your manager and Donald Trump your inconsiderate, texting self.
  4. You can always guarantee that once you get the ear buds situated just right, the phone is going to ring.
  5. I finally find a great tasting "healthy" snack! ...Go back and it's nowhere to be found at the store (Nor does it exist in any other store within a 100 mi radius).
  6. Teach your kids all their youth to NOT put things in their mouth. Get some food stuck in your teeth? Here- use this small sliver of wood sharpened to the equivalent of a samurai sword.
  7. Life is too short to walk around looking like you've just been baptized in a vat of vinegar and you've  lost your best friend. Smile! People subconsciously look for it, and it creates a ripple effect.
  8. That horribly loud and obnoxious sound that echos through your head when you chew ice and really crispy chips? ... yeah, I can hear it too.
  9. Finally get a moment of "me" time, run a HOT bath, lay back, relax, door bell rings. Every. Time.
  10. While in a public restroom, trying to fart without someone hearing is impossible and pointless because someone else always walks in as soon as the last person walks out. Stop trying to cover it up, you're gonna give yourself an aneurysm and you look like you're having a seizure while moving around trying to find the best position to keep it from happening.
  11. "Yes ma'am. We appreciate your business. Here is your receipt for the pre-paid $3000 casket and the $1500 funeral service. OH!.. Have a free pen! Nice doing business with you, please come again."
  12. Dentist finally gets jaw numb after the 4th try, starts drilling... wants to ask about how the family is doing.
  13.  Just rubbed lotion on your hands.. someone immediately asks you to help them open a jar of pickles.
  14. I've got a pocket full of sunshine.
  15. Peel a sticker off the table that your child has so graciously placed there... half of the sticker stays on the surface and there is not a chemical known to man that can remove it.
  16. Take a sip of water.. ahhhh. Refreshing. Take a sip of wine, miss the mouth and it goes all down the new white shirt.
  17. Ear gets stopped up. Go to the doctor, doctor says not to use Q-tips in your ears. Start to leave after you're certain he has sucked out your WHOLE brain.. and he says "Keep them ears clean!" With what!? "Here's a small sliver of wood sharpened to the equivalent of a samurai sword." No thanks. I've got a paper clip that'll work just fine.

...To be continued.

Fun With Color

Just found some amazing photos that have been color saturated. I thought they were awesome and figured I would share them with you. Hope you enjoy. Happy Friday! :)

Just. Like. Me.

Wouldn't it just suck if we were all the same? I thought about this picture (after I laughed like crazy for a little while). I am so thankful for individuality. There is plenty enough competition in life already. I don't want to be like the next gal. I want to be myself. Different. Set apart.

I've been watching that new series on TNT; Falling Skies. I sure hope that there isn't an alien society somewhere with a poster like that of me. But then again, the "intelligent life" title would have to be revoked. No planet should have more than one of me. That's just a wreck in effect.

I have enough trouble keeping up with myself! I can't imagine more than one of me (even though it would be a nice trick in some situations). OH! That reminds me! I was asked this question: If you could be invisible for one hour, what would you do? (And don't ask how I drew a line between those two ideas).

I didn't put too much thought into the answer before I started laughing. ... but I would use my hour to confuse the HECK out of people. Couldn't you just see it? Driving around town... invisible. Riding a bike... invisible. Sitting on a park bench with an air horn, waiting for someone to walk by... invisible. Go sit in the White House and act like President for a day... invisib.. wait, that's already been done.

I don't think I could do all I wanted in just an hour. There are WAY too many laughs to be had with that one!

Back from outer space

A long time ago in a galaxy far,
far away...

What a weekend! We really need more of those 3 day weekend things. I sure did enjoy not having to get up and go to work Monday. Tuesday made up for it, though. I think Tuesday got revenge because it took offense for having to stand in for "Monday" while it was out, enjoying the Holiday.
Tuesday has never really acted like that. I don't know what's wrong with it. It must have had a bad weekend.

I, however; had a great weekend! I tell you what... plans don't mean a darn thing unless you have someone to enjoy them with. The people in my life are the BEST!

          B                 E                  S                 T

But hey... I'm sure I'm not the only one who enjoyed this past weekend. I do want to recognize those who didn't have the opportunity to enjoy it with the ones they love the most. Thank you to all of our service men and women who are out there. And, to their families for being so loving and patient.

For the random thought in this here blog.. How about this? I have had the WORST time remembering things today. I mean, usually my memory is botched anyway, but today has been horrible! It took me a few hours to remember if I was 31 or 32 years old. I finally gave up and did the math based on the year. I'm still not sure if I believe me. My math skills aren't that great. ... I don't WANT to be older than I am, but I swear I've already lived through my 31st year. ...I refuse to argue with myself.. or with Math. So.. 31 it is!


My other brain fart happened when I was ...... .. .... ......dang it!!!! You're not gonna believe this...but I can't remember the other example I was gonna use. I am NOT making this stuff up, I swear.

I give up. More later. ... if I remember to log in...
