Grate Ejucashun

I've been keeping up with my alma mater's football team via their Facebook page: Miami Warriors Football Fan Page

I noticed something when I first "liked" the page and have kept waiting for someone to fix it.

I guess I shouldn't be hard on whoever started the page and wrote the description. They probably went to school there, just as I did...and you know how bad my own writing are is.

At First

I thought this was a quiz about insects.

I agree w/ most of the results, although I'd never, ever buy a red car. They get ticketed the most.

You Are a Red Bug

You are passionate, spontaneous, and even a little bit wild.

Your emotions drive you, and you can be surprisingly aggressive at times.

You sometimes act without thinking. You tend to follow your desires.

You are big on instant gratification. You find it hard to wait for what you want.

Duelling How-Tos

Two WikiHow articles that popped up in my reader yesterday and today:

My Heart Skips a Beat - Buck Owens

Every time I see the "Friendship Heart" application on Facebook, I think of this song.

ABC Outs FN Chef!

As far as I am concerned, Fieri should just STAY in the closet.

'95 Pampa Tornado

I hadn't seen this video;  it's of the second, more powerful tornado that came very close to the prison.

I'm a Night Owl

You Burn the Midnight Oil

No matter how hard you try, you just don't make a good morning person.

You probably don't feel like your brain turns on until at least noon.

You tend to get energized and inspired late into the evening - no matter how early you had to get up.

Try to schedule your time so that you can be productive after dark. There's no use fighting who you are.


idioglossia\ id-ee-uh-GLOS-ee-uh \ , noun;
1. A private form of speech invented by one child or by children who are in close contact, as twins.
2. A pathological condition in which a person's speech is so severely distorted that it is unintelligible.

Or, maybe how we Texans talk. For example, in Tex-speech, my sister Sharon's name is pronounced "Shurren".

If I Had a Daughter...

She'd probably look and act something like this young girl.

She'd most likely sing and curse like this, too.

WARNING! Some graphic language!

Beer Gear

I got a Coors gear catalog in the mail yesterday; I was surprised at how much all the stuff cost - tshirts for $18.50, sweatshirts for forty bucks and up, etc. There was even a Coors beer can mini-fridge for $180 (plus shipping and handling!). (online store)

I'll never buy any beer or liquor shirts; I've got loads left over from when I worked at the pkg. store...and I got those for free. I still get some free stuff now 'n then because when I see one of the vendors at the grocery store I ask 'em if they've got anything. Most of the time they don't - they tell me that part of the budget has been cut way back - but sometimes they do.

What gets me is that, if I bought something, it'd be free advertising for them. Seems like they should furnish the clothing and pay me!

P.O.'d Possum

The noise at around :28 seconds in is the Beej, annoyed that I was outside and not paying attention to him. Later in the vid I'm poking a stick near the cage.
