Rotten Rosie's Ramblings.....................

I'm not a fatalist. But even if I were, what could I do about it?

Q: How do you keep your husband from reading your e-mail? A: Rename the folder to "Instructions Manuals."

Have you ever noticed that the people who say "To make a long story short..." never actually do that?

According to a new poll, women are much better liars than men. At least that's what THEY say... but they could be lying.

Do illiterate people get the full effect of alphabet soup?

I had amnesia once -- or twice.

I went to San Francisco. I found someone's heart. Now what?

Protons have mass? I didn't even know they were Catholic.

All I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make me happy.


No animals were harmed in the making of this email... but a few MAY have been tickled.


Well, that's about it from your embedded reporter here on the outskirts of Absurdia, the proud capital city of The Peoples Democratic Republic of Absurdistan where we try harder. We are only the second most dangerous city in the country! We only have the second worst high school graduation rate in the country!


And on the other hand - The one important thing I have learned over the years is the difference between taking one's work seriously and taking oneself seriously. The first is imperative and the second disastrous.
