Prissy Missy

Eva Mendes Calls Sweatpants Number One Cause Of Divorce

First of all, I don't even know who this woman is, but what's under any woman's sweat pants should be intuitively obvious to any male. If your husband/boyfriend is too stupid to figure that out, then maybe you should be looking elsewhere for a mate and not be giving superficial relationship advice to the general public.

I'm just saying...

Yet Another

French Alps Plane Crash Treated As Suicide And Mass Murder By Co-Pilot

News about the crash of Airbus A320 is filling my mind today and the more I hear about it, the more surreal it becomes.

Knee Effusion

Knee effusion or swelling of the knee (colloquially known as water on the knee) occurs when excess synovial fluid accumulates in or around the knee joint.

It started with squats and lunges last week. I wrapped it, took some naproxen, and it improved dramatically. That is, until yesterday, when I turned abruptly and it popped up again.

I'll be fine.

Years ago, my Vertebrate Zoology professor was lecturing at the board and he turned to face our class when he gave out a loud, garbled yell. He warned us about how easily you can get hurt when you get old.

My thinking is, getting old sucks, but it beats the alternative.

Emmy Noether

Amalie Emmy Noether shares a birthday with my sister... one is a hero in my life and one is a hero in math...

Emmy Noether

I've already sent personal birthday wishes to my dear sister, but this one is for Emmy.

You did some fine work.

National Puppy Day

Who knew there was such a thing as National Puppy Day?

Anyway, I have both a German Shepherd and a Doberman, so I present to you a Doberman Shepherd.

I'd buy those puppies.

Moochelle Family Madness

As those of us who care for college basketball are busy drawing up their brackets, comes news of one team who had the bad luck to hire Michelle Obama' brother as their coach and won't be anywhere near the NCAA tournament.

Michelle Obama’s Brother Left Oregon State’s NCAA Basketball Program In Shambles

Incompetence runs in the family... and also by marriage.

Birthday Greetings

Happy 21st birthday to our baby.

[insert her eye roll here]

We've been reminiscing about the day of her birth. My husband posted on Facebook that he remembers my water breaking at 4:30 in the morning and hearing me "emphasizing" to the OB/GYN on call that I knew the difference between my water breaking and peeing.

My husband knew then that it was going to be a long day.

My husband left out the part when I called the office back and told them I was keeping that baby inside of me until another doctor showed up for the birth and not the moron I was talking to on the phone.

Our Lauren was born at 5:27 PM and, yes, my husband was right, it was an exceedingly long day.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Yes, I wore green today. Now here's some Irish humor:

An Irishman had been drinking at a pub all night. The bartender finally said that the bar is closing. So the Irishman stood up to leave and fell flat on his face. He tried to stand one more time; same result. He figured he'll crawl outside and get some fresh air and maybe that will sober him up.

Once outside he stood up and fell flat on his face. So he decided to crawl the 4 blocks to his home. When he arrived at the door he stood up and again fell flat on his face. He crawled through the door and into his bedroom. When he reached his bed he tried one more time to stand up. This time he managed to pull himself upright, but he quickly fell right into bed and is sound asleep as soon as his head hit the pillow.

He was awakened the next morning to his wife standing over him, shouting, "So, you've been out drinking again!!"

"What makes you say that?" he asked, putting on an innocent look.

"The pub called. You left your wheelchair there again."


Cheers, everyone!

Pool Vortex Not Polar

The pool water temperature is too cold for swimming, so I amuse myself like this:

Just drag a plate through the water in the pool and watch the two vortices that form and travel the pool always staying together.

Too cool.

Deja Vu All Over Again

Hillary's email malfunction excuse is that it was an honest mistake born out of convenience:

Are We Ready For 10 More Years Of Wrath From The Eternal Woman Scorned?

Yeah, right.

Do you remember this 'blunder' from 1998?

Starr Questions Hillary Clinton On F.B.I. Files

Blunders loom LARGE in the lives of the Clintons, don't they?

I'm ready for a fresh start in the upcoming elections...

No more Clintons and no more Bushes.

Nekkid Doughnut Dare

Yes, it's hot, but her dance troupe dared her to sit naked on a bench outside of a Dunkin' Donuts?

Woman Sat Outside Dunkin' Donuts Naked For A Dare, Police Say

Yeah right, don't forget to take your pole with you when you leave.

I'm going to have to add a disclaimer to my Florida posts... not all of us are crazy.

Soda Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

... a kitty illustrating what Midwesterners refer to as POP.

I've lived in the Northeast and the Southeast and I call it soda.

What do you call it?

Happy Friday everybody.

Almost 90

It's 89 degrees here, but you won't hear me complaining about it - rejoicing is more like it.

I hope spring springs for you soon wherever you are.

Godspeed, Bibi.

The White House Fear Of Netanyahu Is At Fevered Pitch...

There are many arguments that can be made for Obola's disregard for Israel and its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu...

Paul Wehner writes in Commentary: "Mr. Netanyahu is everything Barack Obama is not: Strong, tough, shrewd, unwilling to bend and bow to tyrants and willing to stand up for his nation and defend it abroad. On some level, Mr. Obama must surely know this. He hates Mr. Netanyahu for it, even as others of us admire him all the more for it."

I hope Prime Minister Netanyahu's speech knocks some sense into Obola's thick skull, but I'm not betting on it.

I have a head cold. One of these contraptions would come in handy for my head.
