OMG - - feeling quite good today. :huh: Feeling utterly fine. Has my gut healed? Although - last time I cheated, over a year ago - - there was a significant delayed reaction - pain got worse and worse over the days until TOXIC EMISSIONS OF ALL KINDS ensued......................... :ph34r:

I do so love Monty Python. Dad used to watch it every week way back when there was only one TV in a house and you had to watch whatever Dad wanted to watch . . . guess his appreciation rubbed off.

Susie, don't let this happen to you . . .

MP bucket/thin mint

More Monty Python - It's gross - Will that make you watch it? May Offend?

OMG - OMG - - :lol: haven't seen that one in years. an all-time fave. Definitely gross, did not offend. Of course, your words of titillation FORCED me to have to watch it. :lol:

Man not only did we have one TV it only had about 6-7 channels. No remote even....boy are we spoiled today.

ah, THOSE WERE THE DAYS!!!! I was at my friend's house watching GIGANTIC screen multi-speaker home stereo system......there were no less than six remotes on the table, and about 55,000 channels......(there was also a remote for an oscillating fan)......and I just crack up every time I'm there, because, as I told them, I could live in taht house for the REST of my life and not ONCE ever be able to simply turn on the TV and watch a show....I gave a demonstration for the two teenage boys about the beautiful simplicity of how life USED to be......simply walking over, and changing to one of the five channels, and then sitting back down on the couch.......bribery was often used to get one's little brother to get up and change the channel (that was my remote :lol: )

they were dumbfounded.......

ah.....I so miss the days when all you had was one tv, no remotes.....a toaster......maybe some wacky giant stero........kitchen appliances.....and a phone, no machine, and you only could talk to someone IN PERSON or if you were actually HOME to receive the call................

:lol: :lol: :lol:

okay so all this is reminding me that I must WALK AWAY from thie evil computer, enjoy my very surprising sense of well-being today, and get out and do some yard work.

:P

p.s. Janet your kids are SO CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did love that close up/self portrait of the eye, though :lol:

Ptaum! :o You have GOT to EAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you must be getting dangerously thin by now....

My little problem was detailed on OMG. Didn't feel much like eating for a few days, but I'm back to eating what I should now. (Tsu-tze thinks I have an eating problem? :P ) Tho 30-some under my old weight, still 20 over my low.

... I NEED a good lecture, and a slap!!!

Tom doesn't have a lecture handy, but where's the line form for the other?? :D

Curiously, there was a delayed reaction....

Now that IS curious that it's different. <rubs chin>

such an EEEEEEEJIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <slapping self in forehead>

<slapping dingy in back of head>

(sorry...guess I should be spelling it gor-juss)

:lol:

But oops - I forgot to highlight the Ned in FoeNEDdikull, which keeps w/ Giah-knit's next level of including proper name's in the phonetic typing. (HeLarryUs!)

So, I'd go w/ "gor-Jess" !! :lol:;)

And on a sidenote - I think I've proven once again that tequila & 2am email access don't mix. :ph34r::lol:<_<

Anyways, last night I found myself dutifully eating a banana, and yes, it's true...I did NOT know where to look. :rolleyes:

I think I must need to read back. Is "eating a banana" a euphemism? :blink:

P.S. :lol:

My mom said she used to have a party line. I cannot even imagine that. I do remember my first computer...It was a Tandy, we used to play games on it. There was this neat game called Springster. By todays standards it was way out of date. :)

:lol: Party line!!! that is so funny. I think we had one at the ancient cabin in Big Sur, many decades ago.....not sure.......it's all hazy....

update on cheating binge.

A MOST curious day. HUGE spurt of energy. Scrubbed, on hands and knees, three floors today - two bathrooms and the kitchen. Scrubbed appliances, cupboards, part of the refrigerator, entry way....many things. A veritable dervish of glutenized energy. :huh: Felt FABULOUS all day.

Now - - friend has just left........feeling a distinct pain in lower gut......extreme tenderness......

:huh:

stay tuned.

wait - - -

Did EMILY say she CHEATS once a year????????????????????????????????????

and - - -am I not mistaken - - - our dear JULIE dropped by earlier??? :)

and - didn't someone else out of the ordinary make a pop-in (or - poop-in as we like to call it)? Was it Donna? had some wine w/ friend - can't remember - - :ph34r:

Having a love surge for all of you (that's the wine talking, folks :P)

Thanks, thanks, thanks. I actually got a PM from someone complimenting me on that one. I PM'd her back and told her it was my son's work. She said he was a natural. So, I'll throw some of his other work in once in a while and you guys can be the judge when you see the pictures of the trash bin in our minivan, the out of focus orange "that looks soooo good" but he won't eat it, the TV with his favorite show on, the case that holds his camera, and yes, he has taken a picture of his bum.

In fact...it WAS like this :lol:

And little did they know, THEY had it good!!!! Why, when I was young . . .

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Incredible! :) I can't imagine how this is possible! :)

<spew!> blechhhh! I remember that bit well enough I don't need youtube to visualize it.

It takes me back to some friends in high school . . . they could do the whole bit . . . very well . . . very often . . . too often . . . OK, sometimes, they were down right annoying with it . . . Aahhh, memories.

My mom said she used to have a party line. . .

Grandma and Grandpa had one. Sometimes you had to wait for the neighbors to get off the phone so you could take a turn . . . totally forgot all about that.

You know the friends I had in high school are either in jail or just druggies with no brains. There is only two of my friends that made something of themselves, one who is living down by me and another who decided to go to school out of state. Sometimes I wish I was back in school, things were so much easier then....but you know things were not so "Easy" there either when I sit down and think about it. It was not easy being the girl who parents had rules.

All the stress of moving day w/out any of MY stuff getting moved.

On the bright side, I DID run into an old girlfriend, from 17-18yrs ago, at a chance stop at a gas station! :)

Man, I thought that little 'fession was buried well enough within my colourful blathering... :ph34r: (Incidentally, this little emoticon I have just used has always confounded me. I have come to deduce that it must suggest a guilty admission, but visually it just doesn't seem to fit. It would be perfect for a moment where you are about to speak about your secret wish to conduct an armed robbery, or to become a hockey goalie, or an oppressed Afghani woman). . .

In my own defence, I have to say that I NEVER cheat on the diabetic food regimen. But, maybe once a year when I feel my blood sugar slipping, I will quickly grab one of the kids' pieces of licorice instead of a glucose tablet. THERE! I've not only confessed, I've elaborated on said digression. Ahhh...so freeing... :ph34r: (No goalie dreams for me)!

Dear Everyone,

I found this and thought you would all find it amusing as well. These laws are from Texas. I knew there were some insane ones out there. I really thought they were hilarious! :lol: I am going to hunt up more!

A city ordinance states that a person cannot go barefoot without first obtaining a special five-dollar permit.

In Dennison it is illegal for a woman to adjust her stockings in public. Doing so can result in up to a year of jail time.

It is illegal to take more than three sips of beer at a time while standing.

It is Texas law that when two trains meet each other at a railroad crossing, each shall come to a full stop, and neither shall proceed until the other has gone. In one of those "true facts" books there was an explanation for this law. It seems that one of the state senators did not want a law passed. To keep this particular law from passing, he attached the train law to it. He hoped that his fellow senators would discover the train law attached, see how ridiculous it was, and not pass the laws. Nobody saw the the train law attached and passed both laws. This may not be the real reason, but it sounds good. And it might explain some of the laws we have to live with.

In Texas, no one other than a registered pharmacist may sell condoms or other kinds of contraceptives "on the street or other public places." Not even Physicians! Anyone one who tries to make a few extra bucks doing this will be severely prosecuted for the dire act of "unlawfully practicing medicine."

A recently passed anti-crime law requires criminals to give their victims 24 hours notice, either orally or in writing, and to explain the nature of the crime to be committed...

In Lefors, it is illegal to take more than three swallows of beer at any time while standing.

In San Antonio, it is illegal for both sexes to flirt or respond to flirtation using the eyes and/or hands.

A resolution was passed in 1971 honoring the Boston Strangler. Odd but 100% true as confimred by Snopes.com

Sincerely,

Jin

Hi Jin,

:lol::lol: espeSHELLY,

A recently passed anti-crime law requires criminals to give their victims 24 hours notice, either orally or in writing, and to explain the nature of the crime to be committed...

That would really be helpful . . . maybe more states should do that . . . and you know, eventually, there would be at least one criminal that would do it.

:lol:

can't wait for those!

THERE! I've not only confessed, I've elaborated on said digression. Ahhh...so freeing... (No goalie dreams for me)!

:huh: that's IT? a single piece of licorice? shoot, that ain't nuthin! (BTW I have seen wheat-free black licorice in lots of places!!) Ho-hum, your cheating does not interest me. :lol: :lol:

SooZee, how are you doing today? Can you crawl to the computer to reply? Do you need a bucket? Or have you decided to paint all the rooms and steam clean the carpets?

Um...........still feeling fabulous.....

:huh:

and completely flummoxed by the whole thing.............. :huh:

and yes, I AM about to steam-clean the carpets!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (well, except that just recently, there is talk of my mom replacing the horrid dingo-trampled carpets :angry: and PAYING for laminate flooring (parents own this house) in the major parts of my little abode!!!!!!!!!! nothing would please me more........)

so I"ve switched tasks, will prune hedges and wash outside windows.

the ONLY thing I noticed was a distinct lower gut ache yesterday, seems to be gone today. :huh: I tell ya, I don't know WTH to think of this.............

P.S. Hi tom, Emily, Susie Q, Bev, Janet, and everyone else! :)

HI JIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

thanks for the silly Texas laws. I NEVER take more than three sips of beer standing up. :lol:

and good morning adn happy Sunday to all!!!
