big red panties… scary!


I was looking around on usatoday.com’s summer movie previews & came across this picture. I was startled to see Jack Black in a red cape & big red panties. Then I read the promo/blurb about the movie… Nacho Libre.. it sounds funny!

Wal-Mark

I work with a lady who says Wal-Mark instead of Wal-Mart. It bugs me.

Got this silly email today

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting weak?

Why do banks charge a fee on “insufficient funds” when they know there is not enough?

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?

Why doesn’t glue stick to the bottle?

Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection?

Why doesn’t Tarzan have a beard?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Whose idea was it to put an “S” in the word “lisp”?

If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?

Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?

Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?

How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, “It’s all right?” Well, it isn’t all right, so why don’t we say, “That hurt, you stupid idiot?”

Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that’s falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?

And my (the author’s) FAVORITE……

The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends — if they’re okay, then it’s you.

Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen things about Titanium
1. I’ve been training a new employee at work this week. I’m drained.

2. I called to check on the baby birds we took to the wildlife habitat Tuesday night. They’re all doing well.

3. True friends are a blessing. I feel blessed to have made a new friendship and to have met up with two that were already friends this past weekend.

4. I LOVE my iPod. I listen to podcasts, audiobooks and music… a lot!

5. Oldest daughter is going to be in a band competition on Saturday. She is excited. I’m proud of her for working so hard to prepare for it.

6. I saw both of my sisters this past weekend. I am so happy that I am friends with them. They’re wonderful women.

7. My kids stayed with one of my sisters over the weekend. They had a great time with her family. They played at a water park, played flashlight tag, went to a movie & made tons of great memories.

8. Dobby (cockatiel) and Raven (betta) also went to my sister’s house for the weekend. 🙂

9. My nephews (other sister’s sons) told me that their mom & dad’s tub has a motor in it (jacuzzi). It was really cute to hear them describe it like that. 3 yr old nephew said, “Danny (what he says for Daddy) takes a bath in dere and it has a motor in it!”

10. Seven year old nephew wanted to know where Nevada is, so he took me to the world map on the shower curtain so I could show him Nevada. We talked about how far from Texas it is. How cute is that?

11. It’s almost impossible to find a Diet Dr. Pepper in Las Vegas. At least in the hotels. They’re all sponsored by Pepsi, I believe.

12. This week the OKC Arts Festival is in downtown Oklahoma City. I’m going with a few co-workers tomorrow. We’re taking a long lunch. I really enjoy going to the Arts Festival each year.

13. I will take the kids to the Arts Festival this weekend, weather permitting. Storms are forecasted for the weekend right now, but that doesn’t always mean it will actually happen.

This quote is a good reminder, huh?

bird rescue

This afternoon about an hour after I got home, son came in & said that a neighbor boy had found a torn up bird’s nest that had 3 little baby birds in it. Youngest daughter went to see about it & came home with a tiny little sparrow. It didn’t even have feathers yet. It was alive, squeaking, lifting it’s little head searching for food, trying to wobble around on it’s weak, spindly little legs.

I googled “how to care for baby birds,” then “abandoned baby birds” & found a phone number for a lady in Tulsa who works at a wildlife preservation & helps rescue wild animals. I called her & after advising me to keep the bird warm, to try to get all three of them & not to feed them (b/c they could easily aspirate), she gave me the number of a wildlife preservation about 45 minutes away from here in Noble, Oklahoma called WildCare Foundation. I called and was told that they could take the baby birds if I could get there before they closed at 7pm.

We got the other 2 baby birds (the boy was relieved, I think, to have a place for them to go) and off we went.

When we arrived, we took the little birds in, they were going to be put in an incubator & then re-hydrated. They’ll begin feeding them after making sure that all is well with their health & that they can handle digesting food. After the birds are bigger & able to survive, they will be released.

We saw big owls, sparrows, crows, squirrels, and an opossum that were recovering in cages. It’s a place totally run on donations. I enjoyed visiting and would consider volunteering for a few hours sometime.

The kids were happy to have helped save the little birds.

Here’s a pic of them in the kleenex filled box we used for transport.

Vegas

was a BLAST! I will post a few pics as soon as I borrow Mom’s 10-in-1 card reader (or break down & buy one) for the memory card that I didn’t know my digital camera needed. 🙂

We saw a cover band, called Chick Rock, playing at the Big Apple Club in the New York New York Hotel on Friday night. They were pretty good. I was happily surprised.

Saturday afternoon/evening, we went to Party Gras, which was an awesome time with lots of happy, dancing people wearing beads. A band called Love Shack was playing there. The lead singer had on a Devo hat, the guitarist looked like Slash from Guns ‘n Roses and the girl back up singer looked like she was from the B52’s. They played 80’s music. It was a good time.

I cannot wait for our next girls’ weekend! Gotta start planning the next one.

On a side note, I think my hip is back in place now. I just realized that it’s not been hurting as much today. This morning, there was only slight aching, but not as severe as last week. Maybe all the fun fixed it.

Quote

Forgive your enemies , but never forget their names.

I received this quote in an email today. I’m not sure that it goes along with what I believe about forgiveness.

What do you think?
