Does Size Really Matter?

I know what you're thinking, but that's not the subject. I recently made an entry and while deeply involved with the content, I neglected to adjust the font parameters and the result was a larger and different type that I normally use. I left the entry as it was basically because the time it takes to re-enter an entry would be untimely. Furthermore, I do not have any preconceived or written text to rely on, other than "This Date In History" and "Birthdays". I enjoy spontaneity and I often "shoot from the hip" (which explains some of the holes you have dug yourself into. Shutup !).

The question is which text do you prefer (keeping in mind that I'm quite content with the status quo)? I also enjoyed the Ken Burns style of pictures until you gently explained to me that you didn't like that style, so I changed it. As to what you were thinking about when you read today's headline, I already know the answer.

Speaking of King Tut, they have taken him out of his sar...sar.., coffin (don't worry, I can spell sarcophagus) and are displaying his remains. I'm not too sure if I like that kind of thing. It's bad enough you have to die and worse (one would imagine), to be disturbed after you're buried. They should have unwrapped his mummy-in-law (I know, I know !).

What is it today with the women teachers running off with their students and why wasn't this custom practiced when I was in high school? Most of my teachers would arrive at school, park their brooms and then make my life miserable for the remainder of the day.

One of my favorite TV shows is "Seinfeld". Jerry Seinfeld now has a new movie called "Bee Movie" currently in theaters. From watching the"trailers" of the movie, I'm sure that it will be good and I like the fact that adults can take their children to the movie and bee entertained with the sub-content.

I have, however, dug beneath the surface and discovered that there was a few risque scenes that were taken out of the movie. My duty, as always, is to inform you of these types of incidents and for that reason, I will show you one of the out-takes.

The Pictures: I'm in a relatively good mood (for a Manic Monday) and I just added the pictures that interested me. As always, there is no rhyme or reason to the content, rather, imagine it as walking on the beach and collecting seashells, after your second margarita. I particularly like "Cat Woman" and the mama cat nursing the little skunklets (if that's a word, if not, it is now).

This Date In History: 1895; American inventor, George B. Seldon, patents the gasoline powered automobile. 1912; Woodrow Wilson is elected as the 28th president of the United States. 1940; President Franklin D. Roosevelt is elected to a third term in office.

Birthdays: Vivien Leigh, Indian-born English actress (1913), Bill Walton, professional basketball player (1952).

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: A Supposedly True Story

From Wisconsin, we have the tale of the young man who came out of the bar, walked passed the police officer and stumbled toward the parking lot. When he got to the parking lot, he tried his car keys on five different cars before finally unlocking one.

Once inside the car, he sat there around five minutes as other patrons left the bar. He then turned on the car's windshield wipers twice, honked the horn once and pounded on the steering wheel in frustration. At last, when his car was the only one in the parking lot, he finally managed to start the car. As he left he turned his bright lights on, then off, and drove slowly down the road.

The police officer drove behing him, then flashed his lights and pulled the young man over, where he administered a breathalizer test.

When the young man's results were read, the breathalizer indicated that the young man had no alcohol content in his body. The police officer said, "I'll have to ask you to accompany me to the police station. This breathalizer must be broken."

"I doubt it", said the proud young non-drinker, "Tonight, I'm the designated decoy".

That's it for today my little corn muffins. More tomorrow.

Stay Tuned !

Once again, I am laughing out loud. Doc took our grandson to see The Bee Movie and they BOTH loved it!  I think Vivien Leigh was one of the most beautiful women that ever lived.  It's a shame that she was mentally ill.  I like being a corn muffin....haven't had one of those in awhile.  Where do you come up with all of these names.   Just gifted, I suppose.  Anne

Speaking of teachers....

When I began teaching at the high school I was told (by another special ed teacher) that I had job security in my position (due to the type of students I teach) as long as I didn't sleep with any of them..... "WHAT????" I thought! If I have to sleep with any of my students, I am really desperate!!! Gggeezzz...

designated decoy, That was a hoot.  I don't care if the font is larger, these eyes can read it, its the tiny ones that give me a headache.

    Hi, Thanks for visiting my journal. Enjoyed my visit here.
    As far as 'ole leather face is concerned, after 5,000 years, I don't think it matters whether he's unwrapped or not. If they hadn't practised the art of turning a corpse into leather at that point, nature would have turned it into sand instead.
    Great story about the the driver in Wisconsin. I will not share it with my sons. I wouldn't put it past them to try it. As far as I'm concerned, they screw up, they deserve to get caught.
