Friday's Musings

Pushing back the frontiers of ignorance ...............................

 
The "esteemed" leader Nancy Pelosi has named "Dollar Bill" Jefferson aka William Jefferson, Democrat, Louisiana now under investigation for corruption (also for having thousands of dollars in his freezer) and was caught on tape taking a bribe, to the Homeland Security Committee.   Just the person we need to handle our nations' security secrets!
 
Nancy Pelosi also named "Arab" John Murtha to the Armed Services Committee.  You may remember "Arab John" as being an unindicted co-conspirator in the Abscam scandal.  On the other hand, (and on the other side of the aisle) you may also recall "Crazy" John McCain was the other unindicted co-conspirator in the Abscam scandal.

Marvelous Mary's Meanderings ..............................
 
Call me a cynic, but it seems whenever someone is given the title "The World's Oldest Living Person," it's just a matter of time.
 
When you dream in color, it's a pigment of your imagination.  
 
Reading whilst sunbathing makes you well-red.  
 
When two egotists meet, it's an I for an I. 
 
Unhappiness is not knowing what we want and killing ourselves to get it.

Live from New York - it's Jeni .......................

Signs That Your Life Is About To Change ......................
 
While watching the news, you spot your spouse marching in a Gay Pride parade.
 
The bank notifies you that your paycheck has bounced.
 
On a densely foggy morning, while driving in the center lane of a highway, you suddenly run out of gas.
 
You arrive at your wedding to find, two ushers, four bridesmaids, and six pallbearers.
Things I have learned ...........................
 
I've learned that you cannot make someone love you.  All you can do is stalk him and hope he panics and gives in.
 
I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people are just jerks.
 
I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and it only takes suspicion, not proof, to destroy it.
 
I've learned that you shouldn't compare yourself to others -they are more screwed up than you think.

That is it from your embedded reporter, hiding out along the fringes of Absurdia, the capital city of the Peoples Democratic Republic of Absurdistan.

But, on the other hand ................
 
The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary
