Need the Sex?

I was on a message board today, and somebody needed help choosing a name for a character she was creating. This other poster replied:

"I have some ideas, but I need the sex first."

I seriously laughed SO hard! Because everyone knows that the best ideas come right after sex, and it's much easier to relay those ideas if you just had some. ;-) Tee hee. Don't mind me. I'm silly.

Granny, Your Balls Are Showing.

I was at the mall the other day, and I saw this little old lady pushing a walker. Now, I've seen lots of walkers in my day. I even used one when I broke both of my legs, and just by these two things... I know they've been around a while.

Have *you* seen one recently? The front two legs have wheels on the ends. And the back two legs? Do you know what is attached to *those*? Tennis balls! Yes, you read that correctly. Tennis balls. As in, "Grab me one of those, Venus! No... not that one off Granny's walker! Grab me one that doesn't have a walker leg stuck in it!"

I've been seeing these for several years now. And at first, I was like... "Hmm... the thingies must have fallen off, and they're using tennis balls as pushing devices. How creative! *Some*body has a sense of ingenuity!"

But now? you would think that "walker-making" companies would have come up with something by now that has the same function. You know... come up with a neat *doo-hickey-thing* rather than something that makes you think, "What happened, Granny?! Did you fall off the bleachers... and into a tennis match?"

Seriously people! We can send satellites to Mars, and we can make Kitchen Aid in 21 different colors, but we can't come up with a piece that fits on the bottom of a walker? I mean... that fuzzy, chartreuse ball is cute and all, but not at all classy. ;-)

Or maybe it just so happens that all the old people I see are former tennis players, and they just wanted a way to *spruce* up their walker to be more personalized. That's got to be it! ;-)

The Internet is Dumb... Sometimes...

Well, I had a nice little (but really not-so little) story to share, but my internet is being very stupid lately, and it won't let me post more than 8 lines or something like that. And I don't really feel like posting like 3 different entries to get ONE point across so I'll just wait until Jeremy fixes it. I better end this note now. It may be too long already.

Take care, Monkeys.

p.s. I guess it worked... but barely...

Frost and Free Food.

This morning, we had our first frost. Not only that, but I could actually *see* my breath! Yay! That means it's cold.

*emmett* ~ who missed the cold and snow oh-so-much and is really getting excited for winter...

p.s. Today 90 pounds of gluten-free food were delivered to my doorstep... FREE! Gosh, frost and free food in one day! This is my lucky day! :)
