Food for thought

Saw this tonight and wanted to comment

....On TV tonight, there was a man talking about toxic waste being dumped at the local university, and he only had one tooth right in the middle. When he talked I swear the tooth was going to fall off. Yikes.

My first question...Why not just yank it out brother? It's kinda distracting.

My other question...He was well spoken, so why not fix his teeth or should I say tooth? Too judgmental?

Almost last question...Did the toxic waste make his teeth fall out and he didn't know it yet? I'm so not nice..

Last question...Was he the "ONLY" one around to put on TV. No one else (with all their teeth) was around this toxic waste incident and wanted to put their mug on the evening news?

K guys, write you later.

I wish...

You gotta love it. I look at this picture of my dog and sometimes wish life were still like that for me. Sleeping with not much care in the world except for my food and water bowl. They better stay filled or there will be poop to what I would think if I were a dog with not much to care about.

He loves this little cozy "den". Matt and I just put it in our bedroom when we bought a huge montrous TV for the living room. I hadn't put what needed to go there and realized how could I deny this dog that this space that is perfect for him. I know, he's just a dog...but what are you gonna do?

Da Rambler and her dog!

Still Around

In this day and age where woman fight to be independent and show men we are just as capable as they are, some of that polite, "ladies first" genre has gone out the door.

I visited with my mother today at work to take care of some business. While there, I noticed some beautiful flowers on her desk so I asked who they were from and she responded "Steve!" (insert cheeky smile, Steve would be mom's boyfriend of at almost two years).

I asked "why, did I miss something?" (there always has to be a reason, right?)

"No" she says " just cause" smiling but trying to pretend not to.

Envy crept in for a moment before pride set in for my mother. Finally, she had someone in her life that treated her right! That took the time to let her know she was thought of everyday and not just the special occasion days. She joked that the men in the office said it was men like Steve that made them look bad. You know, cause their too lazy to get up, call a florist and send flowers just for the hell of it!

On my way out, the ride down the elevator was jam packed with people. As the elevator reached the lobby a man held his hand to the open door and let all the ladies out and commented "Chivalry will live in this elevator at least!"

It wasn't like it was such a huge day of this act all over the place but it was nice that it was still around.

one of those weeks...

Okay, so I haven't written in a while and I put something like this to visually stimulate you. (your stomach perhaps?)

So the last couple of weeks has been a blur and I couldn't tell you exactly what has been happening. But let's just say some of the moments are just like this poor man sitting on the crapper and realizes that little bitty toilet paper left is going to have to go a long way. Seems like life lately. Things are so simple yet they can complicate your life in many ways.

You ever have a moment...

.... were if you just had more time, it would make the biggest difference?
....if you had just a little more patience left for others, maybe your life could be calmer?
....How about if you just had a little more MONEY?

Anyway, I'm not saying my life is crap, I'm just at a point where I'm trying to make that little bitty paper go a long way...

like someone said,

when life hands you lemons, make a fabulous cocktail to drink the troubles away!
