Today's A Weird Humpday !

You know it's going to be a weird day when you wake up and it's still raining from the night before. It continues to rain as I make this entry, giving me pause to consider the logic of going to AREA 51 at Lakes Cafe tonight. Since I, myself, have occasionally been referred to as weird, I have decided to embrace the thought, so lets just go with that theme.

I find that when everything seems to be going well, I have obviously overlooked something. It's like those days that everything is going so well, you start looking for the sucker punch from life that is surely due. With that in mind, I choose to continue to look at the glass as being half full and I will brave the rain.

Speaking of weird, I wonder who sat one rainy day preparing a salad and thought that carrots would make a nice cake. You know when I'm not in my right mind, my left mind can get pretty crowded (are you referring to me? You betcha !). If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends? The shin is defined as a device used to locate furniture in the dark. Many people quit looking for a job, once they find work.

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving isn't for you. For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism. Why do psychics have to ask you your name? You never really learn to swear properly until you learn to drive. The problem with the gene pool is there is no lifeguard. The preceding courtesy of Steven Wright and myself.

The Pictures: As I always try to bring you outstanding photographs from around the globe, expanding your thoughts and opening your minds. I continue today with intelligent, outstanding architecture and construction. Weird being today's theme, I give you the Beer Can Sculpture competition.

This Date In History: 1580; The British ship the Golden Hind, commanded by Sir Francis Drake, returns from it's around-the-world journey, bearing a cargo of spices and captured Spanish treasure. 1907; New Zealand, formerly a British colony, becomes a dominion within the British Commonwealth of Nations. 1789; U.S. President George Washington approves John Jay as the nation's first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and Thomas Jefferson as its first Secretary of State. 1957; West Side Story, the stage musical by Arthur Laurents and Jerome Robbin with songs by Stephen Sondheim and Leonard Bernstein, makes its Broadway debut.

Birthdays: George Gershwin, (1874), Paul VI, Pope (1887), T.S. Eliot, poet and critic (1888).

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: You May Not Be A Southerner If...

You don't know what a polecat is. You think Heinz Catchup is really spicy and bar-b-cue is a verb meaning to eat outside. You refer to people as you guys even if they're women. The soft drinks that you buy are referred to as cokes instead of pop or soda. The words "poke sack" have no meaning to you. You have no idea how to prepare or have never eaten a tomato sandwhich. You have never eaten fried green tomatoes or okrah (which you believe to be a talk show host). Finally, if you never ridden your bike to the store, bought an RC Cola and a moonpie and consummed both 'neath a viaduct..........

That's it for today, my little chicken gizzards. Thanks for putting up with me today ! See you tonight at Lakes Cafe and more tomorrow,

Stay Tuned !

It's a full moon tonight Jimmy... Trust me, I've been feeling it all week. Today, I managed to run down the battery of the car I've borrowed while my car is in the shop (clever, huh?). I think it's supposed to peak tonight (thank goodness or i might have to phone in sick the rest of the week!!).  Be careful going to Area 51 tonight....

BTW, I'm truly southern.... polecat: yep; bbq: yep; cokes: yep; poke sack: yep; don't even get me started on a tomato sandwich AND fried green tomatoes!!! YUM YUM!!!!

Have fun tonight!!

I honestly didn't know many of the "southern" term...so I'm probably not a Southerner!!  So everything going pretty well for you??  Except for the car incident...I'm always waiting for the other shoe to drop.  My husband says I'm the eternal pessimest.  My philosophy is if you expect the worst, and you don't get it...then its been a good day ;)

Keep it quiet about the Spanish treasure. The Spaniards will be looking for compensation!
