Powers of observation 101

The picture to the left was posted on eBay. I have been working on my powers of observation, and I have deduced that the person advertising the table is a man.

I challenge you to figure it out too..

Look closely, see if you can see figure out how I know...

Random confession

Once I used a Windex wipe on Josh's rear end because he pooped in the car and I ran out of wipes.

Happy belated birthday, Adam!

We love you, even if we don't always show it!

I have to say, I think my sister drew the short straw.

Drew Carry is a lot of things... but... this is too much...

Sarah and I love Drew Carry... we even have his album... his renditon of "Moon over Parma" is classic.

Moon over Parma bring my love to me tonight.
Guide her to Eastlake,
underneath your silvery light.
We met in Ashtabula, she was doing the hula.
I landed her in my radishes and pledged my love that night.

Anyway, I digres.... since we heard that Drew Cary was I set our TIVO-Wanna-Be-Comacastic-PVR to recored The Price is Rite. The first contestent was named Erika West. A Colege Student from Ithica, NY... Wile she was jumping up and down rejocing that she won a new corvette, I relised that she was on nashunal TV with a T-Shirt proclameng that Drew Cary is Gorges. Now, being a fan of Drew, I was personaly ofended. Comparing Drew to Gorges like the Grand Canun and other amazing examples of God's majesty is going too far. I mean, I like him and all... but he's no nashunal treasure or natral oneder.

You're boring me.

3 or 4 times a day, I expectantly rush over to Google Reader to see what's new with you. And you know what? You're leaving me out in the cold. Nobody is blogging, except for Nicol and very occasionally, my sister w/ a one-liner. What's the deal? I need you - you're the only peek I have into life outside of my yellow bungalow.

Instead, I've been reduced to reading about Britney's crotch shots and J-Lo's baby suite. Help!

Dance Party - Yippee!

Alright, fuhgeddaboudit. February is totally SOLD OUT!

(Okay, that was a totally lame
JBMS reference. Sorry about that.)

Who's up for this Saturday's Baby Loves Disco? Let me know if you're planning to go and I can buy tickets. I'm actually looking forward to walking up to a nightclub on a Friday night in yoga pants to buy them...okay maybe I'd kick it up a notch, but it's been QUITE a while since I owned a pair of what my sister so eloquently terms "ass pants*." Should be interesting!

Don't know what the heck I'm talking about? Read this old post for details.

*Sidebar: I just read the definition for ass pants and frankly, that explains it. I was a college hoochie out clubbing...ahh, Sensations, once in a while I do miss you.

Finally someone in the Main Stream Media not sucked into the Obama "Cult of Personality"

Journalist Kevin Henry has written such a cogent article, anything I say would simply detract from his direct and to the point analysis of why this country is not ready for an Obama presidency:
I am not prejudiced. Far from it. What I am—or, I should say, who I am—is a man who loves his country so deeply that he is unwilling to stand idly by while our nation allows itself to be completely annihilated by... [an Obama Presidency]
Please, read the article and reply with your honest reaction. I don't want to start a shrill political debate, but if you are willing to reflect on his points and give a meaningful reply, I welcome your input.

Why I love Photoshop

This just looks so much cooler, doesn't it? The colors pop, there's much more definition, and check out those bubbles!

Maybe we're paranoid but...

We've had a few random and quite frankly wierd people comment on our Flickr pics. As a result, I've made them all private - you can still view them, but you'll either need to be listed as a friend in Flickr, or follow this link.

I'm so happy...

Thank you to my family for the totally AWESOME birthday gift. I love it. I have no idea how to use it, but I love it.

I need to take a lesson from Lauren perhaps...
