Liberals treat dogs like people, Conservatives treat people like dogs

Friday Fives

1. If you could freeze time at the very second in your past that you wanted to LAST forever, so that you can hold that moment for eternity, what would that moment be?

Together with my family this last Christmas. We were all together (which is rare as I live out of state) and all dressed up and had a great time.

2. Have you ever finished in LAST place, whether during a race, a contest, a competition, an exam, or something else?

Sure have buddy. Let's just call that the story of my life and move on. Perseverence and a good attitude will win in the end. At least, that is what my success coach tells me. He charges $800 an hour.

3. Who's the LAST person you talked with on the phone? E-mailed? Received an e-mail from? Hugged? Went out to lunch with? Thought about? Made something for? Made plans with? IM-ed?

probably my wife on almost all of those. Except of course for IM, which I think is stupid... and probably a bigger drain on corporate productivity that solitaire.

4. When's the LAST time that you did something nice just for yourself? What was it?

About every paycheck (which is every other week) I indulge myself by going to Best Buy and getting a CD or music DVD. I wish I could say something great like 'in honor of Black History Month, I am supporting only African American artists.' However, that isn't the case. I went out and bought a Big Head Todd DVD.

5. What do you think you'll be doing on the LAST day of this month (February 28)? If you could choose a month and have it LAST forever (in other words, it would be July all the time from now on), which month would you choose and why?

Last day of the month? I'll be scrambling at work getting payroll, monitors, and monthly coachings written up. Pick one month forever? May is good. The weather is warm and things are growing and sprouting and turning green again. Also, May holds the promise of summer and all the exciting things we are going to do.

ode to my mother

Yesterday was my mom's birthday. I wanted to take a moment to tell you how terrific my mom is. She is a role model for me in every sense. You know how religious people wear bracelets that say 'WWJD'? This stands 'What would Jesus do?'. This is stupid, and so are those people. However, I bring this up to illustrate a point; as an adult I often ask myself 'how would my mom handle this?'
Don't worry, she isn't gone. She just lives in a different state and I don't get to talk to her often (even though I am her favorite son).
So I just wanted to say it out loud. I love my mom! She is the most important and influential person in my life. My mom rules!

It is time to state this

There are two types of people in this world. Those who think Larry the Cable Guy are funny, and the rest of us.
