Keith and Bone are picking me up in a few. Well, let me rephrase. They told me to be ready at 3. I have a feeling it will be more like 4.
Have a great New Year's Eve everyone!! I'll be back blogging on the 1st!
It's bad stuff. Picture a sorority house full of girls. We were all very competitive in the classroom as well as out. We all wanted to look like cover girls. That stuff (among other eating disorders) was rampant. I took it too. I'll admit it. It would not only speed up our metabolism, but we could stay up studying for hours on end. There were times that I'd look down while reading, and my hands would be shaking.
I was stupid. Lots of us were stupid. And now others won't have to learn the hard way. There have been far too many deaths because of ephedra use.
Thanks, President Bush.
I always thought he was the highlight of that show.
Thanks for the tip, Jewdez.
Following Guinness rules, he was allowed a 15-minute break every eight hours. Wethington spent that time using the restroom, smoking, relaxing in a chair for a rubdown, having his fingers retaped and, because he has high blood pressure, having his blood pressure checked.

Friend 1: So, I wanted to spice things up with _____(boyfriend), so I suggested we rent a sexy movie to fool around to. I suggested we rent 9 1/2 Weeks.
Lawren: Very creative. I haven't seen it, but from what I've heard, you picked a good one.
Friend 2: (Looks puzzled for a moment). Isn't that that movie with Hugh Grant?
Friend 1 and Lawren look at Friend 2 with confusion.
Lawren: That's 9 Months, you moron.
So many movies, so little time. (Before school starts back up, anyway).
What is wrong with people?
You're a Caramel!! You are known for your
sweetness. You are comfortable with yourself,
and help others feel the same way about
themselves. You are generally friendly to
everyone, and believe in second chances.
Which kind of candy are you?

You're ELEGANT sexy! You have a tasteful style,
that not only draws attention to you, but gives
you respect. Your style is more graceful than
that of others.
What kind of sexy are you? [For girls only! With Pics! Finally Finished!]
brought to you by Quizilla
Your fantasies involve love, not lust. You are a
fantastic kisser, and for very good reason:
it's your favorite thing. You are sappy as
hell, and you don't care who knows it.
What's your brand of sexy?

Mike Vanderjagt's field goal as time expired not only set an NFL record for consecutive field goals made, it gave the Colts a 20-17 win and the AFC South crown.
He won a best actor Tony Award in 2002 for his portrayal on Broadway of an impoverished nobleman in "Fortune's Fool," Ivan Turgenev's dissection of mid-19th century Russian country life. I also thought he was great in 2001's "Gosford Park."
He was knighted last year.

You never know--one of your guardian angels could be your pet.
They rented "A Mighty Wind," which I had not seen yet. It was very funny. Good choice, guys.
They brought me LaBamba's for lunch (for those of you that don't know, it's a "burritos as big as your head" type place). Not probably what most of us would bring to a sick person, but it's the thought that counts, right?
Not a good combo, and I was not amused.

This guy is a complete moron. Sure buddy, she didn't want you before, but I'm SURE she's gonna want you with wounded genitalia.
This robber must be a Jimmy Buffet fan!
Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash
...to just name a few.

If I had to sum up family gatherings with my family in one word, it would be LAUGHTER. I swear, we all laugh so hard it sometimes hurts. I may be bragging, but I have a very intelligent and quick-witted family.
My grandmother bought my dad, uncle, and two male cousins this fancy-shmancy tie holder thingy. The men were trying to figure it out and one of them actually looked at the directions (I know, SHOCKING!). I wonder if the people who write directions for things actually read them outloud. One of the steps in these directions was "insert your rod into the hole." Needless to say, laughter again ensued. We didn't need our quick wit for this one, the direction-writers supplied us with material.
I got home and got 5 pages of my law review note completed as well. **pats self on back** 10 down, about 40 to go. Sheesh.
Well, I'm off to put away my Christmas goodies. Tomorrow I'll start on thank-you notes.
Merry Christmas and God bless.
