Thought for the Day - #11

Menifee, CA(Zone 9a)

As fun as it's been, we needed to move along as QG, said at the beginning of the last page of the thread. This is where we came from:

http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1143230/

I for one have been cheered up, made to think, and generally enjoyed the last page, and I'm hoping everyone else feels the same, and continues to participate. : - )

Well here it is!

My YB#2 sent this to me, and it had me ROTFLOL, so of course I have to share it with you all. Snicker, snort, snort! : - D

The Washington Post's Mensa Invitational once again asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition.

Here are the winners:

1.Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period of time.

2.Ignoranus: A person who's both stupid and an asshole.

3.Intaxication: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it was your money to start with.

4.Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.

5.Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.

6.Foreploy: Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of getting laid.

7.Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high

8.Sarchasm: The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn't get it.

9.Inoculatte: To take coffee intravenously when you are running late.

10.Osteopornosis: A degenerate disease. (This one got extra credit.)

11.Karmageddon: It's like, when everybody is sending off all these really bad vibes, right? And then, like, the Earth explodes and it's like, a serious bummer.

12.Decafalon (n.): The gruelling event of getting through the day consuming only things that are good for you.

13.Glibido: All talk and no action.

14.Dopeler Effect: The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come at you rapidly.

15.Arachnoleptic Fit (n..): The frantic dance performed just after you've accidentally walked through a spider web.

16.Beelzebug (n.): Satan in the form of a mosquito, that gets into your bedroom at three in the morning and cannot be cast out.

17.Caterpallor (n.): The color you turn after finding half a worm in the fruit you're eating.

Also laughing, but had to do it quietly while DH was on the phone - sounds more like hissing. I will also share those!

Menifee, CA(Zone 9a)

I've heard from at least one lurker, and it's traveling round the world now. That is a great list, LOL!

I read this one, and it gave me even more reason to be thankful I am what and who I am.

Best laugh I've had all day! That was even better than getting a foot cramp, and looking down to realize my toes were trying to do that Spock "Live long and prosper" thing. LOL

It's been raining all day here, surprisingly a warm storm. (At least there is no snow...)

"April showers bring May flowers" Whaddabout January showers?? Still it is always good to have rain in CA, well except for the people that live on cliffs. There should be a good crop of wildflowers this year. Sometimes they lay dormant until just the right weather comes along to suit them.

Has anyone heard this joke? "If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring?"

It's a favorite of my two boys, age 9 & 12, if that gives you any clues. . .

Menifee, CA(Zone 9a)

oh thats one of my favorites too-- so i wont say the answer.

Society is like a lawn, where every roughness is smoothed, every bramble eradicated, and where the eye is delighted by the smiling verdure of a velvet surface; he, however, who would study nature in its wildness and variety, must plunge into the forest, must explore the glen, must stem the torrent, and dare the precipice. -Washington Irving, writer (1783-1859)

Prayer for 2011


Dear God, my prayer for 2011 is for a fat bank account & a thin


body. Please don't mix these up like you did last year. AMEN

We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it -- and stop there -- lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove-lid again, and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one any more. -Mark Twain, author and humorist (1835-1910)

Has anyone noticed SW missing in action? Hopefully just computer problems.

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

quiltygirl, you're so right. I missed her bubbly actions here. Looking back it has been almost a week! Good thought and prayers sending your way Jules.

No Central, AZ(Zone 7b)

Too early here to call her, and then me memory will be gone later in the day.....

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

Please tell her I said hi. Will you need a reminder? I can post a reminder. Luv.

Hey all!
Sorry I've been MIA. I was afraid that having that root canal and then having to wait for it to be filled along with a couple of cavities would make me sick. Well it did, and I'm ticked off, because I had plans! We'ver had warm weather, Spirit needs a good run, And God Laughed. : - )
So I've been in bed, too tired to even turn on the computer, but boy did I sleep a lot. : - )

Some great thoughts, you all know how to make a person laugh! : - )

"The trouble with jogging is that by the time you realize

to become well-known, then wears dark glasses
to avoid being recognized."

I'll leave for now with this quote, it's awfully apt.

"Raising a kid is part joy and part guerilla warfare."
~Ed Asner~

Glad to be back.

I was wondering where everyone went! I lost you somehow...

Menifee, CA(Zone 9a)

Well I was wondering where you disappeared to, kwan, glad you are back! : - )
Evelyn, glad you enjoyed them.

Here's another,

"Your know your children ave grown up when
they stop asking you where they came from and
refuse to tell you where they are going."
~Unknown~

As long as they live in my house, they tell me to keep me from stressing out and worrying. I don't worry if I know they are going over to a friends to game and don't care, when they get home but I worry if they don't tell me they aren't coming home that night.
They've been pretty considerate, and since they are legally grown ups, I don't want to intrude too much into their private lives. Just knowing they are going gaming at a friends and won't be back til morning is fine with me, as long as I don't have to do their chores.
LOL~
You got to love 'em. Or you could give them the RAH treatment. LOL!

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
If a rabbit defined intelligence the way man does, then the most intelligent animal would be a rabbit, followed by the animal most willing to obey the commands of a rabbit. -Robert Brault, writer (b. 1938)

Um, can I share that one with my two boys? Think a 9 year old and 12 year old would "get it?" Sigh. I thought not.
