My addiction


Ok. I admit it. I have an addiction. When I am the least bit stressed or sad or just bored, I reach for my laptop and WEBOGGLE!
And I can't play just one game - I have to play at least 10, and suddenly, 30 minutes is gone.

Sometimes, Weboggle is not there for some unknown reason, and I get palpitations and hyperventilate until it is back!

This morning is one of those days. Aside from losing Whiskey to Piddler Greens yesterday, I'm a little stressed. And then, John is leaving for South Korea today, so I'll be alone for a couple of weeks, making me more stressed. Well, not totally alone. I do have the 4 legged family members to keep me company.

Anyway, where the hell is Weboggle? I need to work out some issues.

UPDATE: It's back - I'm gonna go boggle until it's time to get in the car and transport John and his stuff to the airport.

Darn!


I woke up this morning totally exhausted! Unfortunatly, the exhaustion did *no* come from a wild night of raucous monkey sex, but from dreaming that I was running up and down the block - like a zillion times - whoa - my knees hurt!!!

Hopefully, after a mug of steaming hot coffee, I'll be better able to face the day!

Airport Blogging


Well, I got to the airport three hours early only to find there is no earlier flight from Houston to Kansas City.
So, I thought I'd just give you all my opinions on lotsa stuff -

1. Despite what the Administration wants, we are most definitely in a war on Terror - not a struggle against violent behaviour - geeeze!

2. Fox News need to let Natalie go - I don't care who did what - and why do they only pay attention to suburban rich blonde girls who can afford to go to exotic places?

3. I don't care about the guy who dissappeared from a cruise ship on his honeymoon, either.

4. I don't care about what any athlete or actor or singer or comedian thinks about how the world should be run.

5. I mean really - most of the above listed famous people didn't go to college!

6. Food, drink and tobacco busybodies should just worry about themselves. I don't smoke, but I'm offended by the attempt in New Jersey to keep people from smoking in their own private cars.

7. More daylight savings time? Dumb - school kids have to walk to school in the dark by the end of October as it is - countless people drive to work in the dark in the autumn until daylight savings time - lotsa accidents.
It makes sense in the summer for many of us, but not in the winter!

8. I think it is very good that dark chocolate is possibly good for lowering blood pressure. I would happily volunteer for a study to verify the findings of Chicago researchers!

9. I had a fantastic dinner last night at a new Mexican Restaurant in Houston called Santos - the owners worked for Ninfas for many years - and this food is better than Ninfas. And I had the best ever margarita there - oh it was so smooth and good!!! The waiter said it contained Patron and Cointreau and the juice of one lime and 1/2 an orange - lovely stuff!

Bad Money


Back in the late 70s, I was a manager of a Quick Trip convenience store in Grandview, Missouri. We had a customer who had extreme Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and was perhaps a bit on the paranoid side. He carried a bottle of Clorox Bleach in his car, and would pour the bleach all over any money he got as change. He also poured bleach over his hands, making his skin look, well, odd.

I had completely forgotten about that guy until I read this.

It seems that the Russian drug rings in the Northeast Corridor have taken to liberally dosing their ill-gotten money with a toxin derived from the bacteria staphylococcus. The money was wrapped in plastic, but when law enforcement got it, they opened the package and got sick.

I guess my bleach guy customer was way ahead of his time.

This is a worry, though - what a way to introduce disease to the general populace - money is passed so quickly from one person to another -- tainted money in the wild could be catastrophic.
