“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”
~Ashley Smith

“Do not lose hold of your dreams or asprirations. For if you do, you may still exist but you have ceased to live.”
~Henry David Thoreau

Word of the Day

xanthous - yellow; yellowish


Today is National Hairball Awareness Day?!??!
Also, I missed this, but April 28th was the full moon, and it is called the "Pink Moon" by the Native Americans of New England and the Great Lakes because at this time of year wildflowers, especially pink ground phlox (I promise you have seen these on the side of the road), herald the newly arrived spring.

May is National Salsa Month. Salsa Day? I think so. Who thinks this is a good idea? Keith?!

My Life is Average

Today I saw a sign on the wall at my school that said "please do not move this chair." There was no chair in sight. MLIA

Today, my chemistry teacher randomly said, "I just got a great idea for an ad for Monster energy drink," and pointed toward the back of the room. I looked and saw a guy asleep at his desk, still holding a can of Amp energy drink. MLIA

Today, I told my mom about using "Marco Polo" to find each other in a store. We went to Walmart and, predictably, lost each other. After 30 minutes, my mom angrily walks up to me and says "I just spent a half hour yelling 'Marco' while a various number of customers and employees yelled 'Polo.' We are NOT playing Marco Polo anymore." Thank you, random players.

Today I said to my mom, "Mom, if you say gullible really slowly it sounds like ice cream." She then proceded to say gullible as slowly as she could, I looked at her and laughed. MLIA

The other night, my dad was flipping channels and MTV came on, playing Lady Gaga's 'Pokerface'. He proceeded to sing "ooh oh oh ooh, ooh oh o-oo-o-ooh" part and was thoroughly enjoyed going through "p-p-p-poker face, p-p-poker face mum mum mum mah!" at the end of every chorus. After the song ended, he changed to the soccer channel and acted as if nothing happened. MLIA.

Customers are Fun

Sorry, I just could not find a good one today.

Going out for coffee tonight with a friend, @ IHOP. ♥ Judging how crazy it gets when my Gal Friday & I go to IHOP, I anticipate hilarities. :)

And again, no one came with me to donate blood yesterday. I got a snazzy jazzy shirt for it, too.

Top Ten Things To Do While Giving Blood
by Tina Mancuso and Paul Coen

10. Watch the bag fill.

9. Hyperventilate.

8. Pull the tube out of the bag and drink from it.

7. Race to see who fills their bag first (requires two or more people).

6. Puncture the bag near the top and see whether they pull the needle out of your arm before the blood squirts out.

5. While they're not looking, substitute a bag of orange liquid and complain they gave you too much Tang.

4. Insist that you want to give 2 pints.

3. Faint.

2. Tell them you saw the bag twitch.

1. Yell, "Hey, you used that needle on the last guy!"

On your work highspeed fax/copy machine, always make sure you hit the FAX button, before you dial in the number and then walk away… It will copy until it runs out of paper. #LFMF

When referring to your boss as the "Spawn of Satan" in an email to a friend, make sure to delete it from the history and close your email program before going to lunch. Sometimes the Spawn likes to sit at your desk while planning the taking of your soul. #LFMF

When filling out forms in customs, at the question “Have you been diagnosed with TB in the past 12 months?” Answering, “No, but I did pick up a touch of Ebola during a visit to the Congo last year…” is not clever. Customs has no… *NO* sense of humour. #LFMF

Saying you did something for the lolz does not hold up in a court of law. #LFMF

Don’t flee from police unless you are in good shape. When you jump a barbed wire fence, get your shoelaces caught and end up hanging up side down, the only thing between you and freedom is a sit up. #LFMF
**I SO do NOT condone this, but it was hilarious.

Thank you, thank you. I am here for all eternity. Have a fantabulous Friday!
