from the life & times of jessi bean

I knew it was going to be a bad day from the moment I fell out of bed, thrashing in my sleep with the aftertaste of nightmares. Bad banana.
Maybe if I had not been so out of it this morning, I would have realized what was sleeping on my pants before I went to pick them up from the floor to throw them in the laundry.

That's right. I have it with me. It bit me. I killed it. End of story. Now it's my trophy. For enduring the excruciating burning, searing, flaming pain that exploded when it stung me on my finger. So now it is official. I'm not just a Scorpio, I also have Scorpion venom coursing through my veins. Actually, my whole left arm is sore now. Not in pain, really, just sore.

Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon is a trivia game based on the concept of the small world phenomenon and rests on the assumption that any actor can be linked through his or her film roles to actor Kevin Bacon within six steps. The name of the game is a pun on the philosophical "six degrees of separation" concept.

**Thank you, My Gal Friday, for bringing this to my attention. This is AWESOME. :)

My Life is Average

A few weeks ago, my favorite teacher was called into the army. His destination? Somalia to fight off the pirates. No joke. MLIA

Today, I realized that dentists give you little rings and bouncy balls that kids could choke on, thus making them need a doctor. I also realized that doctors give out lollipops, that give you candy-- and make you need a dentist. They are either professionally sabotaging each other, or stimulating each other's industries. MLIA.

Today, my boss made me play on his Vampire Wars. I got paid in full for the hour and a half that I was on. MLIA

Today, being bored I decided to read the label on my moisturizer. It said "Warning: Remove cap". I am confused as how that might be a surprise to someone. MLIA

Learn from My Fail

after a huge ice storm do not dive face first into what you think is snow to make a snow angel…also ice is very unforgiving. #LFMF

When dialing a number on a fax machine, listen to make sure it connects rather than have a co-worker tell you that you accidentally dialed a phone sex number. #LFMF

Don’t assume that it’s cute that your brand new puppy ate a whole bowl of cat food. However, you SHOULD assume that she will have explosive diarrhea all over your sheets and floor in the middle of the night. #LFMF

Chuck Norris Factoid of the Day

"Chuck Norris owns the greatest Poker Face of all-time. It helped him win the 1983 World Series of Poker despite him holding just a Joker, a Get out of Jail Free Monopoly card, a 2 of clubs, 7 of spades and a green #4 card from the game Uno. "
^oh, come on now. This is just….ridiculous.

Into the Unknown by d-f3kt

Taking the first steps into the unknown
Full of lingering thoughts and shadows
Unseen hands grasp at a wandering mind
Eyes sewn shut, to this world I'm blind

Ashes of disparity blown in the wind
On the edge of sanity the world begins
Life palpitates through a broken soul
A thin line lies tattered in self control

Cascading thoughts from a delusional mind
Mocking life while insanity intertwines
Sinking further into darkness waiting below
As I take my first steps into the unknown
