Too funny not to share

Thank you Collette for the repost.

Washington Post's Mensa Invitational once again invited readers to
take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or
changing one letter, and supply a new definition.

Here are the winners:

1. Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the
subject financially impotent for an indefinite period of time.

2. Ignoranus : A person who's both stupid and an asshole.

3. Intaxicaton : Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until
you realize it was your money to start with.

getting laid..

7. Giraffiti : Vandalism spray-painted very, very high

8. Sarchasm : The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the

Movie Review: No Strings Attached

out of 5 stars
This is a cute story of Ashton Kucher (Adam) and Natalie Portman (Emma) who have known each other since camp back in the day. Their lives have always intertwined through college and grown up life. After Adam's big break up he decides to call every girl in his phone book to see who will have sex with him. He ends up getting inanely drunk and wakes up the next morning, naked on Emma's couch convinced he has had sex with someone in the apartment. After much deliberation, and the final word from Emma, he realizes he didn't have sex with anyone. He finds out he acted pretty inappropriately in front of Emma and eventually they begin making out...The rest you will have to watch.

It is a very cute film and some of the one liners are classic. The first 20 minutes of the movie alone will have you laughing out loud so that you may even miss the in between lines.

This is a great single or date movie. I feel you will get a kick out of it either way.

Some memo…

Movie Review: The Rite

My Review:  ★★★1/2 out of ★★★★★

I was not sure to expect with this one as I am very skeptical about these drama, thriller, horror movies out nowadays. After seeing the last exorcism, I was turned off completely by this genre. I heard from a good friend that it was pretty good. I am a big fan of Anthony Hopkins so I decided to check it out.

The story is about Michael Kovak, who is a mortician and has decided to go into the priesthood. You get the idea that he has always been involved in it since childhood and is looking for something else, some sort of meaning and decides to go into the priesthood.

It starts off pretty slow with lots of dialogue, there is a crucial scene, in my opinion about destiny in which Michael has written a letter to his superior about wanting to quit the church after four years. The scene forwards to Michael walking outside in the rain after emailing his resignation, and the father superior coming out in the rain to talk to him and in the process slips off…

Random meetings

So I headed home from Vegas today and was flying United. I normally fly southwest out of san diego as there is not connection, but this time I wanted to fly out of carlsbad. My flight from Vegas was on time and I was thinking it was going to be a quiet flight to LA. I couldn't have been more incorrect. Two girls that had missed their earlier flight and had been drinking at the bar were lucky enough to sit next to me.

At first, i thought to myself, "these girls are train wrecks" I decided to allow myself to have fun with the whole thing and got to know the two girls. They were extremely funny, extremely abrasive and very much like me. Emma and Lynn were awesome travel companions.

They were both tipsy and very funny. They proceeded to tell me all about their week. They both work for a large software company and were helping put on an event in vegas this week, as they do every year. Emma proceeded to tell me about "5 hour energy" and how it is basically le…

thought for the day

Love is our natural state of being. It is a vibrational frequency that you can see and feel in those around you. The expression of love can be in material things as when someone says, "I love your shoes". They are resonating with the frequency of the color or style of the shoes at their current energy level. When we step out of our mask of what we think love is, we begin to realize that we had no concept to begin with.

Often times we think that love only comes in the form of placing someone in our lives as the soul benefactor of our love and that is what I feel God was trying for us NOT to do. When we learn to love everything around us, when someone sees that vibrational love, they become attracted to it and so want to share in that love and spread it with that person all over the world. Love is not like money, you are not supposed to save it, you give it away in multiples of 100.

When you realize the universe (God) loves you, realize that everything is exactly as it should …

Do you like to fly?

I have met numerous people over the years and the overwhelming answer is "No, I hate flying". I wonder if they really feel that way or if it is something that has been programmed into their heads for many years. I ask the question, "I wonder where the fear comes from?" Is it because of something they have seen, or possibly a loved one, family member or friend of a friend who was involved in a being in a plane crash.

We have all sat next to the chatty guy or girl who has told of their horror stories about turbulence or terrible landings or outrageous take offs, but aside from that, where does that fear come from and why does it stick. I personally believe that it all relates to our fear of death. When people make the associations about flying, they immediately think about crashing or worst case scenarios. Why do we do that? You wouldn't start a race thinking about hitting a wall at mile one, why would you do it on a plane?

This morning I had the pleasure…

Funny from mom...

Let me start by saying, i love my mom and the fact that we appreciate the same humor.

There was a man who worked for the Post Office whose job was to process all the mail that had illegible addresses.

One day, a letter came addressed in a shaky handwriting to God with no actual address. He thought he should open it to see what it was about.

The letter read:

Dear God,

I am an 83 year old widow, living on a very small pension.

Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had "$100" in it, which was all the money I had until my next pension payment.

Next Sunday is Christmas, and I had invited two of my friends over for dinner. Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with, have no family to turn to, and you are my only hope.. Can you please help me?

Sincerely, Edna

The postal worker was touched. He showed the letter to all the other workers. Each one dug into his or her wallet and came up with a few dollars.

By the time he made the rounds, he had collected $96, which they put into an envel…

Starting 2011

Lots of people are going to be making New Years Resolutions. I will be in that category also, however, I feel my list will be a bit smaller. I wrote on my wall yesterday some of the things I want to accomplish.
1. Drink more water
2. 2 Cups of coffee per day
3. Exercise on a daily basis

I made my list simple for a reason. Most people start the New Year with a list of things they want to accomplish, but somewhere along the line of going through the motions, they forget to keep a running tab. The list is so long that it becomes a chore and everyone knows that chores downright suck!

You see its my belief to keep things simple. Give yourself some attainable goals that are relatively easy to follow. Trust me we are all perfect in our own right, but for the sake of not becoming as stagnant as a pond in the middle of the swamp, we all strive to make small differences in ourselves, small but noticeable differences that are passably easy to follow.

By making large lists, you are saying that…
