It's Good To Be The King

Well, Stephen King.  THE Stephen King, that is.

Besides the famous horror writer living in Bangor, Maine, there are 2,068 other Stephen Kings living in the U.S. (according to the 2010 Census), 168 of them in Texas.

I'm Cool With Halloween

Although I used to get hot under the collar when the neighborhood thugs would chase my old black cat.

Your Halloween is Chill

You may or may not love Halloween, but you don't go to crazy on this holiday. You simply enjoy your favorite traditions and ignore the rest.

Whether you're watching your favorite Halloween movie, handing out candy, or hiding out until November, you do this holiday your way.

You may not get why people go all out for Halloween, but you appreciate their effort. An original costume or funky craft always makes you smile.

You take everything as it comes in life, and you always look for the bright side. Even if you don't dress up, you always enjoy this time of year!

Obeng Lucy

Hi sweetie, How's going on ? I'm obeng Lucy by name , single Woman never married with no Kids. I'm the honest type, sincere, upfront, affectionate, passionate and God fearing . I just came across your profile , I have to admit that I really enjoy reading it and your picture looks interesting. I'm looking for a serious man to start a serious friendship which is going to lead to something wonderful in the near future. I know you will be wondering where I got your email , please don't look scared, I copied your username on the dating site and paste it in goggle search and it really turn out that your username is the same as your email address so predict that would be you exact and I decided to send you an email , I really want to get to know you in any way because I like your profile. Take care and be looking forward hearing from you with a smile. Lots of kisses and hugs. Until your next..


Dear Obeng Lucy,

You might have seen my profile, but there's no information under it and any photo I had associated with it was that of a horny toad.

No, my user name ISN'T the same, not in here and since I don't belong to any dating sites....

"honest type, sincere, upfront, affectionate, passionate and God fearing"

SURE you are!  Why aren't you spammer/scammers REALLY honest?  "Hello, my name is Matinga Dubuko.  I am a 33 yr. old man,  live in Nigeria and am only pretending to be a woman in order to dupe you into sending me money or sending you a link with my "sexy photos" so that you'll click it and then download some malware that will take over your computer and email accounts and all your passwords."

"Please don't look scared..." Oh, I'm not.  I would love to meet you in person and take a sledgehammer to your hands so you'd never be able to send out this crap ever again.

The caption on your shirt says it all:  GREED.

Boney Dreams

Dreaming of a skeleton on display may signify new, fascinating friends or coming events.

Or, it could mean you've got a hankerin' for some ribs.

Halloween Tang Toungler

Try saying this tongue tangler three times fast:

"Which witch wished which wicked witch?"

What's Your Color Code?

Your Color Code is Red

You are a highly independent person, and you seek power in this world, if only to have the freedom to do what you want.

You are confident and action oriented. Nothing bugs you more than to be spinning your wheels when you know you could be getting stuff done.

You are moved by logic and determination. You tend to have a grand vision, and you know how to get there - one step at a time.

You aren't one to be subject to emotion if you can help it. Of course, feelings have their place, but you have to keep pushing through.

TWI - Talking While Intoxicated

From the   Email animation  archives









British Constitution

Passive-aggressive disorder




"Thanks, but I don't want to have sex"

"Nope, no more booze for me"

"Sorry, but you're not really my type"

"Good evening officer, isn't it lovely out tonight?"

"Oh I couldn't, nobody wants to hear me sing...."

The "at" Symbol

The earliest known example of @ is found in the 1345 Bulgarian translation of the 12th century Manasses Chronicle, which gives a brief synopsis of the history of the world up to the end of the 11th century. In it, @ was used as the symbol for “amin” (amen).

The Smithsonian website differs in the first use, but there's some interesting information in this piece:

Keep It or Toss It?

Wondering if that jar of horseradish is still good to eat? Find out at StillTasty, your ultimate shelf life guide. There's a fridge-full of other info on the site with answers to many common perishable food questions:

Can You Safely Drink Milk After the Sell-By Date?
Is it OK to Put Hot Food Directly Into the Fridge?
Are Eggs Still Safe After the Expiration Date?

(yes, yes, yes, but as for me re: the milk-ONLY after intensive sniffing and extremely cautious sipping. Personally, I would rather get slapped in the face than drink sour milk.)

onychophagist Noun (plural onychophagists)

(rare) A person who bites his or her fingernails.

 Origin: From Ancient Greek ὀνυχο- (onuch), combining form of ὄνυξ (onux, “claw, nail”) + -φαγος (phagos, “eater”), from ἐφαγόν (ephagon, “I ate”).

I never met a plumber with that problem.

Brobdingnagian \brob-ding-NAG-ee-uhn\ , adjective;
1. Of extraordinary size; gigantic; enormous.

This is one of those fifty-cent words used when a simpler word would suffice.

"Everything's Brobdingnagian in Texas." just doesn't have the right ring to it, y'know?

What Make of Car Are You?

You Are a Porsche
You make no apologies for who you are. You are ambitious, aggressive, and and a total Type A.

You love to win in life, and you don't need to break the rules to do it. You are never happier than when you're competing.

You are a very fun person, even though you don't have a lot of free time. When you play, you really go for it.

You secretly love attention and love people being envious of you. You are proud of what hard work has netted you in life. 


There's so much wrong with these results, I'm not sure where to begin. In the first place, I'm certainly not a "Type A" person.  I'm also neither ambitious (pretty much the opposite) but I guess I CAN be a little aggressive at times...but not with my driving.

I have LOADS of free time - I have no life.  I also do NOT love attention and if someone is envious of me, then I pity them.

I WOULD love to own a Porsche - a Boxter Spyder, to be exact.

I went back and changed some of my answers several times, and is usually the case there is one of the multiple-choice questions that determines the car you are.  I changed from testing a car on the Autobahn to on a rural road and it said I was a Volkswagon. I didn't read the description for that, but it probably fits me better than this one...although I'd much rather own a Porsche than a VW.
