slimjim goodness

last week my boss came back from a trip with a slimjim. he hasn't eaten it. nope, he's been using it as a whip... slapping his desk when he's frustrated, or joking around, etc. well, today when he took a break to go to the restroom, i went into his office with a slimjim of my own in hand. i promptly hid his slimjim in a drawer. i opened my slimjim and sat down and awaited his return. jamie, one of my coworkers, joined me. as she & i waited & chatted, i proceeded to eat my slimjim. of course, i knew that when he came in that he would assume that i had opened his slimjim to partake as i pleased. well, you should have seen his face. "WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?! WHY ARE YOU EATING MY SLIMJIM!?!" i said "what? this isn't yours... open your drawer."

hahaha... good times. he was a good sport.
thanks slimjim. http://www.slimjim.com/

Wakamaru and Cuckoo

okay, those in favor of sending the Japanese the dvds of the Terminator movies say "I".
"A child-shaped humanoid robot that can recognize about 10,000 words and work as a house sitter will go on sale in Japan in September..." see the full story:

I had a good weekend. hung out with friends… ate a lot of good food… watched movies… got some work done… pretty successful weekend.
one of the movies I watched was One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. gotta say… wasn’t expecting it to end the way it did… but I truly enjoyed it overall.

H2O phenomena and dontdatehimgirl.com

so, I was on this blog today:

I enjoyed her entry about water because I’m a bottled water connoisseur…
a bottledwateroholic…

a bottled water snob...
a bottled water extremist…
a bottled water lover…
a bottled water freak…
anyway, at least I own up to my bottled water issues. i've been a bottled water connoisseur for as long as i can remember... maybe it has something to do with living in Oklahoma and preferring filtered H2O to tap?

no, i'm not the water lady from Return to Me.
(what a great movie! http://www.mgm.com/title_clip.do?title_star=RETURNME ).

here’s something else that I found funny on her blog:
oh… dear… lord…

fun ideas

so someone asked me if i had a favorite entry that i’ve written since i’ve been doing this blog thing. i can’t believe that i’ve been writing stuff up on this since October 2004! crazy. anyway, this “favorite” question got me thinking and i went back & read some old ones. don’t we all have our moments? i’m sure that most bloggers could say that they have some “favorites”. as for me, i think that my best mental spills come after i’ve been around kids or after i’ve been speeding down the highway at night blaring music in my car. hmmm… if i’m most inspired when i’m around kids and when driving… maybe i should switch career paths… school bus driver? okay- don’t fly off the handle- i’m just kidding. besides, i don’t think it’d work since i like to drive at night speeding down the highway with the music…. really don’t think they’d allow overnight delivery of the kids. but it’s a fun idea.

speaking of fun ideas… SPRAY-ON salad dressing! hmm… spray-on ranch doesn’t sound too appetizing… but spray-on Italian maybe… yum. seriously, check this out:

well, i'm off to lunch... bye for now.

i work with an Elmer Fudd.


anyone else work with any annoying cartoon characters?

i bet my friend D does. see his new blog:

so as I was getting ready for work this morning I heard a “news” story on the Christian radio station. …and very quickly became seriously irritated. the story was about how this missions training school “discovered” that they could train pastors in Uganda via the internet. in other words, they now have online courses.
whoohoo! duh, we can have online courses?!?!? you mean the internet can be used as a valuable tool? whoa! yippee! thank you reverend dipstick! what’s taken you so long to figure this out?! maybe if you weren’t sitting in your bubble all the freakin time you would have found this out a long time ago! the internet? what’s that??

so, this amazing “news” story got me thinking about the AGE OLD question:
Why are most Christians always 10 years behind?

and then i started to think about Jesus in the Garden with his disciples…
you know when he asked them to pray and he went off to pray by himself. he kept coming back to find them sleeping. oh boy, was Jesus a nice guy. i have a feeling that when he said Come on guys, can’t you stay awake?? that it was probably very evident that he was serious… it probably came out with some divine emotion. but if i was Jesus, i would’ve been DIVINELY PISSED OFF when i kept finding them sleeping!!! AAAAAHHHHHH C’MON YOU STUPID LAZY MO’FOS!!!!!!!!! WAAAAAAAAAKE UP!
Most christians are always 10 years behind because they’re sleeping… just can’t seem to stay awake. please note that I said MOST and not ALL.

since I’m sure someone might think it, let me just say that i do not by any means claim to be perfect… but I’m no sleeping bubblelover.
here’s another bone I have to pick w/sleeping bubblelovers:
why is it that the UK and Australian Christians are sending MISSIONARIES over to the U.S.????? why????

anyway, sorry about all this ranting & raving. I just get divinely pissed every once in awhile and have to get my “preach” on. WAKE UP YOU SLEEPING BUBBLELOVING MO’FOS!!!

wow, sometimes i read something i've wrote & think what's got into me?!
i'm really a nice person... i think. THAT'S IT- no more writing about christians that tick me off for at least a month.

you think?

Is blogging a crutch? Is it a valid substitute for face-to-face conversation? I think blogging should be used as an introduction to people you want to meet in person, because no matter how cool someone is on her blog, she is much more interesting in person.

well, i'm not sure that always rings true... but I think I like Matthew Homann.
