The Rainbow Connection

Why are there so many songs about rainbows and what's on the other side?

Rainbows are visions, but only illusions, and rainbows have nothing to hide.

So we've been told and some choose to believe it. I know they're wrong wait and

Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection. The lovers, the dreamers and me.

Who said that wishes would be heard and answered when wished on the morning

Someone thought of that and someone believed it. Look what it's done so far.

What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing and what do we think we might see?

Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection. The lovers, the dreamers and me.

All of us under its spell. We know that it's probably magic.
Have you been sleeping and have you heard voices? I've heard them calling my

Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors. The voice might be one

I've heard it too many times to ignore it. It's something that I'm supposed to

Thank you gingerbrit...was trying to remember the name of this one

The Scorpion and the Frog

A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the
scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The
frog asks, "How do I know you won't sting me?" The scorpion
says, "Because if I do, I will die too."

The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream,
the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of
paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown,
but has just enough time to gasp "Why?"

Replies the scorpion: "Its my nature..."

And now for something completely different....

I just took Nola outside and saw something completely unexpected.

Someone who works here has a 3.5 Players Handbook in the backseat of their car.

No, I wasn't snooping in people's car windows. It just happened to catch my eye when walking by.

So...maybe I could get a gaming group together here at work....

oh, the rain

I love days like this. It's overcast, gray, with the lullaby of a rain show.

It's beautiful.

However, I would much rather be at home right now than at work. Nola and I could go for a walk in the rain, play for a bit, then maybe a nap, followed by some hot tea and a good book.

That's what I'd rather be doing today.


Things that amuse me greatly...

My new icon...I actually found this while doing some math editing here at work.  The picture is included with a set of inequality word problems with the topic: which copier lease is the better deal?  The picture of a guy with his head in the copier almost made me fall out of my chair.

Post-it notes...I have a Happy Bunny notepad and left some notes on my best friend's fridge...

  1. Hi! I went hopping through the forest today
  2. Then! I picked up a field mouse...BOP!
Yes, I'm weird, entirely too entertained by these things, but I was that math teacher who had a joke or riddle with each class warm-up.


Monday report

Let's see...

I could report on my failure in not smoking or on the soreness in my knees. I could report on the jerk who rang my doorbell at 5 this morning or the discomfort of this past weekend mixed with great joy, but I won't.

I will write this. When a drunken asshole is at your door in the middle of the night, you appreciate even more having a dog. She wanted a piece of him badly. I guess you could say that she was ready to take a bite out of crime. :-)


Yes, the title is cliche and over used. I don't care though. It's Friday, and that means that I'm on my 5th day as a non-smoker. Yay!

Tomorrow, there's a party for some poor schmo, and I suppose I'll go. It is his birthday party and all that. :-D

I will have to be conscientious of certain details though. Such as, there will simply have to be a distance between me and them, the smokers.

Hopefully, I will be able to report a successful weekend of fun (of course) and no smoking.

Free Food

I have two leftover vouchers from the lunch today at Romeo's. No one here will take them and insist that since I set up the lunch that I should keep them.

These vouchers are only good for one more week though.

So, anyone want to go to lunch at Romeo's next week for free?
