April 16, 2010

Hello, Chase! It's another beautiful day in San Antonio, great for tanning, especially those of you who came from Florida and lost your tan when you came out here. So get outside in that beautiful sunshine and get roasted!

Isn't it great it's Friday? I miss watching TGIF. I mean Step by Step, Family Matters, Friday nights with my girl Heather eating Pixi Stix and drinking Coca Cola….then staying up all night annoying my parents with our giggles, throwing stuffed animals out the second story window and making screaming noises as they fell, actually screaming when we went outside to get them and were surrounded by bats.... Ahh….memories.

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children…to leave the world a better place…to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

My Life is Average

Today, when I was talking to my crush, he told me I was too nice to be an evil genius. He then texted me a second later saying, "Oh My Gosh, that's all part of your master plan!" MLIA

Today, I went to a party where they had a henna tattoo artist. Most of the kids got stars and hearts, I got a dinosaur saying, "Moo." Win. MLIA.

Today, I played Risk for the second time in my life. The last time I played it, I broke a table. This time, I broke a chair and fell onto a concrete floor. Obviously Risk is a risky game. MLIA.

Today I saw a commercial on TV, this skater punk teenager was waiting to cross the street. An old lady came and grabbed his hand and asked him whether he needed help crossing the street. He accepted. I wish all old people were like this. MLIA.

Today, I was "doing my business" in the stall, when I heard someone walk into the restroom. Out of an old habit, I stuck my head under the stall to look at the person's shoes. I ended up screaming when I saw that the person in the stall next to me was doing the exact same thing. MLIA.

Funny Pics
from the collection

from the life & times of jessi bean

Have you seen Madagascar 2? The part in the plane where the penguins are flying and the lemur king is arms straight up and he goes "it's more fun with your hands in the air….like dis?" Hilarious. I've taken to saying that lately. About everything.
So, my mom was driving me home last night and I just bust out with that, and she looks at me, throws her hands in the air and repeats it….while she's going about 40. Hilarious? I thought so. THEN when we were close to my house (I live in the middle of nowhere, and there are lots of, um, critters out there, I saw something that looked like a ferret crossing the road in front of us, and I immediately yelled "ferret!". Mom goes "WHERE?!"
"I think you just ran over it, Mom!" She looks at me….
"But it's more fun with your hands in the air like this!" and throws her hands up again.
Yeah, we are so related. I ♥ my mom.

This morning, I dropped my cane on my big toe….on my good foot. Yes. Thank you.

This flower is beautiful and I want it. I want it more than I want a spider lily. Seriously. Don't know how THAT happened. But if no one can get me that flower, I will settle for some gum. I have coffee breath.

This is a cross between Personal & People of Chase. I asked Buddha not to laugh, then put on my dOrk fOrces bOwl & asked him to take a picture of me. He took my phone and says "you're telling me not to laugh and wearing a bowl on your head."

People of Chase
from the life & times of … you!

He had a blow out on I-10 and De Zavala, pulled into a parking lot, and left his car there overnight. It had been pouring, so changing the tire in the rain was not exactly ideal. When he went back the next day, he found his Mustang parked across three parking spots. He had been completely sober when he parked there.
~Thank you, R, for this fabulous story.

Live…From California!!
from the adventures of SPA (my nephew & his friends)

o__O I haven't heard from my nephew in two days. I am getting worried. We message each other on MySpace every. single. night. I worry. Whippersnapper must be out having fabulous adventures to tell me about.
He's a good kid. Him & his friends go to the park and play on the playground. Take pictures of everything. And are addicted to orange everything. Oranges. Orange candy. Orange soda. Yes. Oranges.

Top Ten List

Why Dogs Don't Use Computers

Can't stick their heads out of Windows '95.

Fetch command not available on all platforms.

Hard to read the monitor with your head cocked to one side.

Too difficult to "mark" every website they visit.

Can't help attacking the screen when they hear "You've Got Mail."

Fire hydrant icon simply frustrating.

Involuntary tail wagging is dead giveaway they're browsing instead of working.

Keep bruising noses trying to catch that MPEG frisbee.

Not at all fooled by Chuckwagon Screen Saver.

Still trying to come up with an "emoticon" that signifies tail-wagging

Just for Giggles

What do you call a pig that does karate?

A pork chop.

Yes, I did just put that lame but still awesome joke there.

Have an amazing, astonishing, astounding, awe-inspiring, awesome Friday!
