  1. Just got the word today, she'll be getting her 4th phone since she got these things around the start of the year.
  2. Yep - I took my good friend in three times in one month for replacement Verizon phones.
  3. Alright, I'm getting pretty confused. I have a few questions: I worked three jobs through college, hopping on the city bus to get to my afternoon job teaching, caught a ride with a co-worker over to my evening job, then walked to the bar I tended until 3 am, then caught my way home, starting at nine am in the morning walking and busing to classes. Of my state school. Then, just to really get the taxpayers, I took some money from the state from a program to get the disabled educated and working (I have a pretty severe chronic illness that makes me one expensive lady, with hospitals/insurance/medication). My mom was the first in my family born in America, I was the first born in Minnesota. So: 1. Does that make me one of those d@mn immigrants? 2. City buses...state school...scholarship money...seems this is all "socialism" now. Is everyone who uses these things a drain on society? 3. Just a random question: are immigrants the only ones using welfare for baby formula? I guess I'm really confused. Tear me up...should I be so ashamed?
  4. Getting over a bad shot, definitely. Teeing up and driving well after a bad hole. Getting out of bad putting slumps - since you really can't putt angry. Convincing myself I might be ok, nay, maybe even good, even if I send a shot wayward. Has that EVER worked?
  5. Oy, immts, I think a lot of folks are feeling pretty hurt to be asked to drop it. I wonder, is this a chicken and egg scenario...is the question of racism political or did it get political answers since I asked it in election season?
  6. You may dare to ask, doesn't mean I will dare to answer.
  7. A from-right-field attack on me? I'm perplexed as to both why that's necessary; and at the same time, with your sentence fragments, what you're getting at.
  8. A lot of folks are throwing around the word "socialism" - everywhere these days - and they don't seem to have a grip on what it means. It's a word that stirs emotions in people, but you all probably know by now that I find emotional pleas to be a crutch when facts will do much more. Neither candidate is promoting "public rather than private ownership or control of property and natural resources" (definition of socialism). (Although buying mortgages, like some politicians suggest on both sides, seems to be on the edge of this.) Anyway, to my knowledge, no candidate ever has. Or, another good definition: "social or collective ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods." So I'm going to post this...it brings me back to high school, when I still thought it was funny. I bet you've seen it, but read it again, it's a good time. Politics explained with two cow analogy: FEUDALISM: You have two cows. Your lord takes some of the milk. PURE SOCIALISM: You have two cows. The government takes them and puts them in a barn with everyone else’s cows. You have to take care of all of the cows. The government gives you as much milk as you need. BUREAUCRATIC SOCIALISM: You have two cows. The government takes them and put them in a barn with everyone else’s cows. They are cared for by ex-chicken farmers. You have to take care of the chickens the government took from the chicken farmers. The government gives you as much milk and eggs as the regulations say you need. FASCISM: You have two cows. The government takes both, hires you to take care of them and sells you the milk. PURE COMMUNISM: You have two cows. Your neighbors help you take care of them, and you all share the milk. RUSSIAN COMMUNISM: You have two cows. You have to take care of them, but the government takes all the milk. CAMBODIAN COMMUNISM: You have two cows. The government takes both of them and shoots you. DICTATORSHIP: You have two cows. The government takes both and drafts you. PURE DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. Your neighbors decide who gets the milk. REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. Your neighbors pick someone to tell you who gets the milk. BUREAUCRACY: You have two cows. At first the government regulates what you can feed them and when you can milk them. Then it pays you not to milk them. Then it takes both, shoots one, milks the other and pours the milk down the drain. Then it requires you to fill out forms accounting for the missing cows. PURE ANARCHY: You have two cows. Either you sell the milk at a fair price or your neighbors try to take the cows and kill you. LIBERTARIAN/ANARCHO-CAPITALISM: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull. Summary: Government is bull. Don't have a cow.
  9. Yeah, I know. I was p*ssed cause I thought of it before she was going to be VP. (We always knew she'd be picked.) I was the Statue of Liberty a couple years before 9/11, everyone jacked that costume idea from me, too. But at whatever rate, I'll be working that night, so I could just wear that costume for the whole time and not change when I'm done performing. What is your sister going to do?
  10. Ha, no, he's cool with it. He walks around with it on.
  11. I'm broke. I was going to wear a suit, my glasses, put my hair up and my Minnesota accent on thick, and go as Sarah Palin. "I said tanks, but no tanks, on that breedge to no-wheare..."
  12. Thanks! I wanted one so badly too, then one day I was told we were going to the airport because a surprise was arriving...
  13. That's cool, I'm not racist. It's been said that pugs love, in this order: 1. People 2. Other pugs 3. Other dogs Winston, as we may know, loves: 1. People 2. Food 3. Lady pugs 4. Golf (...sounds like some other men I know...)
  14. I know it's shameless, but he looks so cute!
