Although this is Mundane Monday, I must admit that I welcome a slow and non-intrusive day and I can use the rest. I went to AREA 51 at Lakes Cafe on Friday evening and the joint was jumping when I arrived. My pal and karaoke show emcee, Gipsy, was going strong and there were a lot of participants in the karaoke show.
I met with my friends Emilio, Hector and Lourdes, Dr. Mark and Rosie and some of the other regulars, including owner Richard and his wife Sharon, all members of the normal Friday night crowd. My advisor for the evening was Mr. Dewars, a Scotsman of impeccable character and clarity and after the first cocktail, I mellowed right out and enjoyed the show.
I ended up singing "Georgia On My Mind" after encouragement by Mr. Dewars and we all had a nice time. I arrived home around 2:00, which by my latest standards, was a reasonable hour.
Danica Patrick Wins Indy Japan 300: Congratulations to Danica Patrick, who won the IndyCar race at Montegi, Japan Sunday, becoming the first woman to win in the history of the series. Patrick's win came in her 50th career start.
The Cats Ass Trophy: There were three nominees for the CAT Award last week, namely;
Alfred E. Neuman, actually nominated by Linda for the presidency, but by definition and default, a nominee for the CAT award. You might ask, how did I arrive at this theorem? Easy ! President = Bush = CAT Award nominee.
OPEC, nominated by Garnett, when oil prices reached $117 a barrel on Friday. OPEC cannot ever be a CAT Award nominee, because rule 112.6a in the CAT Award rules, state that any prospective nominee that can be nominated 24/7/365 is not worthy of the Award. It is tantamount to nominating feces (caca, for the hard of understanding). Therefore, OPEC is disqualified.
The Men of the Texas Polygamist Sect, nominated by myself. The perverts who brainwash, mistreat and marry the women of their sect, a number of whom were under aged.
All things weighed and sorted, the winner of the CAT Award is the male members of the Texas Polygamist Sect. Good work guys ! The next time we thin the proverbial herd, you'll be on the list.

The engaged girlfriend said, "The other night, when my boyfriend came home, he found me in the leather bodice, four inch stilettos and the mask. He said, 'You are the woman of my life' and then we made love all night long."

The scene is the darkest jungle in Africa. Two tigers are stalking through the jungle when the one in the rear suddenly reaches out with his tongue and licks the butt of the one in front. The lead tiger turns and says, "Hey, cut it out." The other tiger says sorry and they continue on their way.
After about five minutes, the rear tiger suddenly repeats his action. The front tiger turns angrily and says, "What is it with you? I said don't do that again!" The rear tiger says, "I'm really sorry but I just ate a lawyer and I'm trying to get the taste out of my mouth."
