Life is not a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes, playing a poor hand...– Jack London
My friend’s daughter says that she wants to be a vegetarian. There is a problem with this though. She doesn’t like vegetables! So, she tells her mom, “I’ll be a fruititarian!”
From The Big Bang Theory
Sheldon: I'm polymerized tree sap and you're an inorganic adhesive, so whatever verbal projectile you launch in my direction is reflected off of me, returns to its original trajectory and adheres to you.
Leslie: [sarcastically] Ouch!
Trippin' Yet Again
I’m walking up the three flights of stairs to my class and trip yet again. There were people behind me again, of course. It seems like there always has to be someone around when I trip. Considering how often I trip, you’d think I wouldn’t care anymore who was around to see it! lol Anyway, this time I tripped so badly that I almost fell down the stairs. I bruised the heel of...

From That '70s Show
Kitty: Red, you should go talk to him.
Red: What? Why me?
Kitty: Well, cuz I don't really know how to mend a broken heart. I've never been dumped! (chuckles).
Red: Well I don't believe that.
Kitty: Why not?
Red: Well there are certain things about you that are annoying. That other people might not have been tolerant of.
Kitty: You're bald!!
Red: See! Like that!

There is some good information in this.
I have great faith in fools; self-confidence my friends call it.– Edgar Allan Poe I’m certain that I’ve posted this one before, but I find it very humorous so I wanted to post it again. :)
So, I have an assignment for my Linguistics course; I am to transcribe (using phonetics) the speech of someone that has a dialect different than my own, but this person must speak American English. I chose Matthew McConaughey because of his oh-so-yummy southern accent. I figure that since I have to listen to someone talk for one to two minutes, it may as well be someone that has a sexy ass...
I have a class that is on the third floor of one of the buildings on campus. So, I’m walking up the stairs and there are people behind me, of course. Yea, I trip. **sigh** Ah, my life as a klutz is always full of fun experiences. :)
Fear of Long Words Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia Obtained from: http://www.selfhelpcollective.com/strange-fears.html HAHAHAHA can that word be any longer?
I had to go to the court house the other day, and after going to security I had to walk upstairs. There was a guy just ahead of me going upstairs as well. Well, I, of course, do what is totally typical of me, I trip on the stairs, almost falling into him but I was able to catch myself. He turns around and asks if I’m alright. I say “Well, if I hadn’t tripped on these stairs...
Obtained from: http://www.strangefacts.com/laws.html In Texas, it’s against the law for anyone to have a pair of pliers in his or her possession. In Philadelphia, you can’t put pretzels in bags based on an Act of 1760. Alaska law says that you can’t look at a moose from an airplane. In Corpus Christie, Texas, it is illegal to raise alligators in your home. In Miami, it is...
It's Only Natural
On FB I saw this advertisement by Coffee-Mate, and of course I clicked on it because I like creamer in my coffee. Well, I’m looking at this new introduction of their “Natural Bliss” line and I’m wondering… are they going to start calling the original creamer “Artificial Crap?”
This last Monday I was running errands before I had to be at work, and after my very last errand my car refused to start. **sigh** I did not need this; I’ve had enough stress lately without my car adding to it. Unfortunately, I had to miss work and a three hour class on Monday. I hate missing work, not just because I need the money, but because I was unable to work with the students...
I can forgive spelling errors made by the general public. But, when it is by a corporation or any other company that should know better, it’s kind of hard to let it go. This was the “help wanted” sign posted on the door at my local Save Mart. Normally I don’t recommend relying on spell check, but in this case spell check would have underlined this one and it would have...

I'm a Perfect Robot
Me (my status update on FB): I find it fascinating that I am conversing with a friend via text and simultaneously via fb private messaging. And yes, they are two completely different conversations. Lol
Angela: How funny! We are sooo weird. LOL
Me: Lol I know right! Ok so now we are communicating using a third method. Hahaha
Angela: So now it's three different conversations. Wow, I must say we are talented. Lol
Me: Lol yup. Shall we continue to speak of out talents? Lol jk
Me: Clearly, checking spelling before I send out a text to fb is not among those talents. hahaha
Angela: Well that just shows you are only human. Wouldn't want people getting jealous of you with all this talent and all. not everyone can be as gifted as us you know.
Me: I know right?!?! I try to make mistakes every so often, you know, to make those less fortunate feel better. But, it's just so hard! I rarely make mistakes, I'm never klutzy, I never trip while going up stairs, I never mispronounce words, I never mess up on grammar, and I never make up words and think they are real words until I go to look in the dictionary. I think that about covers my perfection!
Angela: This is true! It's kinda scary actually. Until you started making yourself mess up intentionally on a few thing. I could have sworn you were a robot.
Me: Perfection tends to give that impression.
Angela: Indeed it does.
Aunt Darcy: Be careful mixing your social media--I've read the comment--"OMG--did I just put that on Facebook?!!"
Me: Hahaha :)
My Mom: Never klutzy, huh? Oh, ok ... right! LOL
Me: Now mom, you know very well that I don't run into walls, or trip on invisible things. I never have bruises on my shins. ;)
