Martini Anyone?

You Are a Classic Martini

You area sophisticated drinker, who knows that simple quality is over-rated.

You're a knowledgeable drunk, but sometimes you're a know-it-all when you're blasted.

You should never: Drink and gossip. You tend to forget who's standing right behind you!

Your ideal party: Has a real bartender. But no one mixes a better drink than you.

Your drinking soulmates: those with a Chocolate Martini personality

Your drinking rivals: those with a Margarita Martini personality

Blast From the Past

I was like a kid in a candy store today, literally. We went to Petaluma to window shop and hit the antique and thrift shops (more on my thrift shop scores in a minute)

Anyway, this new place has opened up. It is called Winsome Lass. It is a real candy store. Not only can you get Hershey bars and stuff like that, but it has candy I used to get when I was a kid. Candy I haven't seen in years. Candy and bubble gum cigarettes (so politically incorrect now), licorice pipes, wax lips, Boston Baked Beans, and foot long taffy. The also had cinnamon toothpicks. There was so much stuff. I could cheerfully spend a fortune there;)

I got the candy cigarettes (and bubble gum ones), a bubble gum cigar, a foot long taffy, some Chick-o-Sticks (my dad used to LOVE those) red hot toothpicks, and an Idaho Spud candy bar (which was NOT as good as I remember). Joseph wanted some Red Hots so I got those too. Next time I go over there I am buying the BIG Chick-O-Sticks and some Abba Zabbas;-)

Ah, memories.

Oh! The thrift shop! I found a whole bunch of teacher's pamphlets and posters from 1949 and 1950! They are so cool. The posters are both science related, and the booklets are something like *Everybody Likes Milk* I think I am going to frame and hang the posters. I love the graphics. One of the thrift shops was having an "every article of clothing $1.00" sale. I got a wool pea coat for a buck! (Like I NEED another coat) But hey, it was a dollar:-)

From the Inbox

Five surgeons are discussing who makes the best
patients to operate on.
The first surgeon says, "I like to see accountants on
my operation table
because when you open them up, everything inside is

The second responds, "Yeah, but you should try
electricians! Everything inside
them is color coded.

The third one responds. "No, I really think
librarians are the best; everything inside
them is in alpabetical order.

The fourth responds, "You know, I like construction
workers. Those guys always
understand when you have a few parts left over at the
end, and when the job
takes longer than you said it would.

The fifth surgeon shut them all up when he observed;
"you're all wrong. Politicians
are the easiest to operate on. There's no guts, no
heart, no balls, no brains and
no spine and the head and the butt are

Take a Chill Pill??

I was told to do that today on a forum.

I usually really get along with all these people, even when they start in about how horrible Christians are. The post that pissed me off today was one of those, but I was really surprised at who said it. I can't remember her exact wording, but it was something along the line of "Jew hating, anti homosexual, intolerant of any other religion Christians" There was more, but I can't recall it all. Anyway, I had enough of ALL Christians being lumped in together with the few intolerant ones, and I said so.

The poster told me to take a chill pill. Um, no fuck you. I mean no thank you.

It seems to me that Christianity is the new thing to bash, and it is perfectly ok. I know there are horrible examples of Christianity out there...Fred Phelps, Pat Robertson and others of that ilk. I really DON'T consider those people to be Christians.

There are horrible examples of LOTS of religions out there.

I guess it's ok to be intolerant, as long as you are intolerant against Christians now:/


I am not a religious freak. Anyone who knows me knows this. I totally believe in live and let live. I usually ignore the crap, but for some reason, I just couldn't today.

Going To Philly

I'm making my first trip to Philadelphia later this month. I made my flight and hotel reservations last week. It is my best friend's birthday, and my friends ( are playing at the Kimmel Center in Philly. Casey really wants me there for her birthday.

I am really excited. I have never been there before, and I hope I get so actually see some of the historical stuff while I am there. (History freak that I am) I REALLY want to see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. Independence Hall is only a half mile from the hotel, so it should be doable.

Today we made a trip to IKEA. Oh how I love that place;-) I picked up some stuff to get my home organized (HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA) No, really, I will get it organized this year. Stop laughing.

I also picked up some of the Swedish Meatballs. Mmm Mmm good;-)
