Happy July 4th to everyone! Not only is today a holiday, it falls on a Friday as well. How cool is that? The only unfortunate thing is that with gasoline costs so high the only thing you can be driven to is drinking (good idea! I know.)
Tonight's a good night for my weekly spree in AREA 51. Actually, I've already been to see some friends who are cooking bar-b-cue for this evening and I'm sure that will be one of my stops this evening. I came back to change clothes and finish today's entry, and then I'll be heading out again.
Remember our soldiers, past and present, in your prayers.
Speaking of drinking, remember that they'll be a lot of amateurs imbibing this weekend so keep that in the back of your mind. You don't want Billy Bob driving up your ass while he's busy throwing cherry bombs out of his truck.
The Cat's Ass Trophy has one nominee as of today, made by Jude. I'm still not exactly sure of her nominee yet, but I emailed her so that she could clarify it for me. There's a whole weekend ahead of us yet and nominations are open until Monday at noon.I'm sure there'll be someone who suffers from foot in mouth disease before Monday.The Pictures: I ran some picks a while back of the buildings that are under construction in oil rich Dubai. I received some of the pictures of the homes they finished building and you're not going to believe it. Every home is ocean front. You'll see what I mean when you see them. Unbelievable!

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
A blonde woman and her brunette friend are walking down the street and pass a flower shop where the brunette happens to see her boyfriend buying flowers. She sighs and says, "Oh crap, my boyfriend is buying me flowers again....for no reason."
The blonde quizzically looks at her and says, "What's the big deal, don't you like getting flowers?"
The brunette says, "Sure, but he always has expectations after getting me flowers and I don't feel like spending the next three days on my back with my feet in the air."
The blonde says, "Don't you have a vase?"
Remember To Drink Moderately This Holiday Weekend: Or this could possibly happen.....
A drunk gets up from the bar and heads for the bathroom. A few minutes later, a loud, blood curdling scream is heard from the bathroom. A few minutes after that, another loud scream reverberates through the bar.
The bartender goes into the bathroom to investigate why the drunk is screaming. "What's all the screaming about in there? You're scaring the customers!"
"I'm just sitting here on the toilet and every time I try to flush, something comes up and squeezes the hell out of my balls."
With that, the bartender opens the door, looks in and says, "You idiot! You're sitting on the mop bucket!"
That's it for today my little firecrackers. Have a safe and great weekend and more on Monday.
Stay Tuned !
