Monday Madness - 10/07/12 07:11 PM

Weather forecast for tonight: dark. Continued dark overnight, with widely scattered light by morning.
George Carlin (1937 - 2008)

Teacher: What’s 2 and 2?
Pupil: 4
Teacher: That’s good.
Pupil: Good?, that’s perfect!

“Hey, Mom,” asked Johnny “can you give me twenty dollars?”

“Certainly not.”

“If you do,” he went on, “I’ll tell you what dad said to the maid when you were at the beauty shop.”

His mother’s ears perked up and, grabbing her purse, she handed over the money. “Well? What did he say?”

He said, ‘Hey, Marie, make sure you wash my socks tomorrow.”

One summer evening during a violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her small boy into bed. She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, "Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight?"

The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. "I can't dear," she said. "I have to sleep in Daddy's room."

A long silence was broken at last by a shaken little voice saying, "The big sissy."

A man took his Rottweiler to the vet and said to the vet: “My dog’s cross-eyed, is there anything you can do for it?”

“Well” said the vet “lets have a look at him”

So he picks the dog up and has a good look at it’s eyes.

“Well” says the vet “I’m going to have to put him down”

“Just because he’s cross-eyed?” says the man.

“No, because he’s heavy” says the vet.

A magician worked on a cruise ship. The audience was different each week, so the magician did the same tricks over and over again.

There was one problem. The captain's parrot saw the shows each week and began to understand how the magician did every trick. Once he understood, he started shouting in the middle of the show "Look, it's not the same hat!" or, "Look, he's hiding the flowers under the table," or "Hey, why are all the cards the ace of spades?"

The magician was furious, but couldn't do anything. It was, after all, the captain's parrot. Then the ship sank. The magician found himself on a piece of wood in the middle of the sea with, as fate would have it, the parrot.

They stared at each other with hatred, but did not utter a word. This went on for a day and then another and then another.

Finally on the fourth day, the parrot could not hold back and said,

"OK, I give up. Where's the ship?"

Upon entering a little country store, the stranger noticed a sign warning, “Danger! Beware of dog!” posted on the glass door. Inside, he noticed a harmless old hound dog asleep on the floor beside the cash register.

“Is that the dog folks are supposed to beware of?” he asked the owner.

“Yep, that’s him,” came the reply.

The stranger couldn’t help but be amused. “That certainly doesn’t look like a dangerous dog to me. Why in the world would you post that sign?”

“Because,” the owner explained, “Before I posted that sign, people kept tripping over him.”

Once upon a time, there lived a man who had a terrible passion for baked beans. He loved them, but they always had an embarrassing and somewhat lively reaction on him.

One day he met a girl and fell in love. When it became apparent they would marry, he thought to himself, she'll never go through with the marriage with me carrying on like this, so he made the supreme sacrifice and gave up beans.

Shortly after that they were married.

A few months later, on the way home from work, his car broke down and since they lived in the country, he called his wife and told her he would be late because he had to walk. On his way home, he passed a small cafe and the wonderful aroma of baked beans overwhelmed him.

Since he still had several miles to walk he figured he could walk off any ill effects before he got home. So he went in and ordered, and before leaving had 3 extra large helpings of baked beans. All the way home he putt-putted. By the time he arrived home he felt reasonably safe.

His wife met him at the door and seemed somewhat excited. She exclaimed, "Darling, I have the most wonderful surprise for you for dinner tonight!" She put a blindfold on him, and led him to his chair at the head of the table and made him promise not to peak. At this point he was beginning to feel another one coming on.

Just as his wife was about to remove the blindfold, the telephone rang. She again made him promise not to peek until she returned, and away she went to answer the phone.

While she was gone, he seized the opportunity. He shifted his weight to one leg and let go. It was not only loud, but ripe as a rotten egg. He had a hard time breathing, so he felt for his napkin and fanned the air about him.

He had just started to feel better, when another urge came on. He raised his leg and RRIIIPPPP!!! It sounded like a diesel engine revving, and smelled worse. To keep from gagging, he tried fanning his arms a while, hoping the smell would dissipate. He got another urge. This was a real blue ribbon winner, the windows shook, the dishes on the
table rattled and a minute later the flowers on the table were dead.

While keeping an ear tuned in on the conversation in the hallway, and keeping his promise of staying blindfolded, he carried on like this for the next ten minutes, passing gas
and fanning each time with his napkin. When he heard the phone farewells he neatly laid his napkin on his lap and folded his hands on top of it. Smiling contentedly, he was the picture of innocence when his wife walked in.

Apologizing for taking so long, she asked if he had peeked at the dinner table. After assuring her he had not peeked, she removed the blindfold and yelled, "SURPRISE!!!"

To his shock and horror, there were twelve dinner guests seated around the table for his surprise birthday party.

Good morning everyboomie.........I guess.......I'm not woke up yet. tired lol

I thought nights were supposed to get longer in the Fall & Winter. duh

5:00 AM will see me hard at IT again. Another day, a nuther dollar. razz

Joe, I hear you on the early mornings. yes Well, at least it means you get off early, right? Hope the day flies by for you.

Have a terrific day, Ana.

Sleep well, Midge.

Hope your weeks starts well, too, Space Quest.

I figured I might as well post tonight, so I'm not just whooshing by in the morning, as per usual. lol Fiance's working overnights, so I'm here by myself. It's going to be that way until the end of October, possibly into the first week of November. I can't wait until the project is over. It's hard do my job properly when they're relocating my department and giving me less space when I'm getting more product. crazy I think I need a vacation. lol

Oh, well, I'll have to settle for going to sleep for now. wave

Hope everyone has a great Monday. cat

Good morning my friends smile
Last night hubby and I went for a walk
in the old port of the city.
We saw a lot of people just looking of
something,so we went to see what it is.
Remember Viggo Mortensen from the Lord
of the rings and Kirsten Dunst from Spiderman?
They were sooting their new film here in
Greece and specially in Crete. penguin

Re: Monday Madness - 10/08/12 09:56 AM

Good morning y'all.

Cool this morning with a high of 60. Gonna stick around the house and goof off today. Do have orchestra rehearsal tonight. Have a concert next Sunday.

Not a whole lot of interest around here. We did have a great time at the block party Sat. night. Got Ameren in the back yard cutting down a very tall tree that died this summer. If it fell, it would take out about 8 power lines and that would make a lot of people unhappy. Need to take Cory for his walk but will wait for it to warm up a little.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Re: Monday Madness - 10/08/12 10:37 AM

Good morning Joe and all Gameboomers! wave

Chilly here with high expected of 55 and more rain. Feel pretty good today but my eyes are tired. Broken sleep last night because I kept falling asleep during the day.

Did some of what I meant to do yesterday, but didn't game. Instead I watched movies! laugh
Watched Cabin in the Woods and really liked it. I'm going to buy it when I can.

Ana that fire must have been such a shock to you and a reminder that life can change on a dime. It's a scary thought. Sending my well-wishes to the family in the hopes they recover as best they can quickly.

Haroula, how exciting for you to have a movie shoot nearby, especially with 2 such excellent actors.

Wishing everyone health and moderate temperatures. laugh (Think I'm going to be forced to turn on the heater.)

Happy Monday, all. smile

Re: Monday Madness - 10/08/12 06:15 PM

Hello boomers!! Been gone from here too much. But finally the porch is done, the whole place is painted and there is now a small, railed deck with stairs for an entrance. Yay!!! Until he comes up with a new project. That will probably be new kitchen floor covering this winter. I am missing gaming but still have some apples and the pumpkins to bring in and process....not to mention more potatoes, carrots, beets and brussels sprouts. So, off I go once again!! Happy Gaming!! wave

Re: Monday Madness - 10/08/12 09:36 PM

Hi guys. I gotta tell ya it's cold in my apartment tonight. I have NO HEAT! I wrote a note to my landlady today and when she read the note she immediately wrote back that the heat has been on for 3 weeks! That was news to me as I haven't had the heat on yet. I got home from work tonight with a note stuck on my door saying that the gas company has to order a part. I have no idea how long that will take. In the mean time I'm cold. I hope my heating problem goes away tout sweet.

Going to bed soon so I'll just wrap myself in some blankets and go to sleep.

Night all.
Midgie sleep

Re: Monday Madness - 10/08/12 10:07 PM

Ana, you could have added some bacon to that kale. It'd be great! Hope dance was fun.

Midgy, can you use a room heater?

I'm exhausted and heading to bed. I'm sure one of these nights I'm going to actually sleep.

Sleep well all sleep
