Murphy's Law Is Kicking My Asspirations !

It's been a while since we've had a nominee for the Cat's Ass Trophy (CAT) Award, mainly because, lately, no one has commited an act of stupidity at a sufficient level to warrant the coveted prize. I emplore you to keep your eyes open and your potatos peeled for a nominee, which according to Murphy's Law, should be forthcoming in the next few weeks. With a plethora of talented people in the world who are deserving of the award, I'm sure someone will step up to the "podium" and "axe" for a nomination.

That said, I turn your attention to last evening's therapy session in AREA 51 at Lakes Cafe, and the lack of attendance thereof. For a Wednesday, it was notoriously slow, represented by Lourdes, Hector and myself. Carmen stopped by a little later and Nicole joined me for a nightcap. I think everyone's getting rested up for the coming Halloween parties. "Father Jimmy" may or may not make an appearance, although I did promise Nicole that I would go to the parties.

My friend, My Murphy, the creator of the famous "Murphy's Law", the entity responsible for at least half of my omnipresent problems, single handedly busted my ass the last two hours as I made today's entry. Not only did he cause me to push the wrong keys and cancel, when I should be saving, he forced me to shout out expletives into the evening air, some of which, I just flat-assed made up. I am calmer now since I called upon my friend, Johnny Walker, to aid me in the riddance of the dastardly Mr. Murphy.

The Pictures: A couple of bears, scattered amongst the pics, that I thought you might like. Tattoos ! I found some that I would like to see and I added them into the mix. A little monkey, an awesome Hummer, Annette and some wine for the ladies round out today's pictures.

This Date In History: 1810; King George III celebrates his 50th anniversary as monarch of Great Britain. 1929; Secretary of the Interior, Albert Fall, is found guilty of bribery perpetuating the adage that Albert goeth before the Fall. 1960; The Accutron, the world's first electronic wristwatch, goes on sale. 1971; The Peoples Republic of China joins the U.N., replacing the nationalist government of Taiwan.

Birthdays: Johann Strauss, Austrian composer (1825). Georges Bizet, French composer (1838), Pablo Picasso, Spanish painter and sculptor (1881), Minnie Pearl, comedian (1912).

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:

                

That's it for today, my little budding Jack O'Lanterns. More tomorrow.

Stay Tuned !

OK...first, for the CAT award....maybe check out stupidsheet's recent journal entry...you might be inspired.
Second...about the pics:
In #3, that's either a adorable tiny bear, or a humongous hand holding it.
Also, love Crater lake...i've been there!   Also love the Antarctica photo.
Where is #17?  Finally, I'll pass on the wine thanks.  I had WAY too much last night and can't bear the site of it today.  Thanks anyway!

Your pal,
Nancy
