Top 3 Elections

I like elections that set a precedent. I like elections that I was around for. I like elections I can relate to.

2000: George W Bush and Al Gore
The electoral vote failed in this election - majority didn't win.

2008: Barack Obama and John McCain
The first black president in the USA - proving how far behind the rest of the World we are in the sense of equality. It took until 2008 for a black man to be president. /sigh

1. This election

This election will always be the most significant election. This election is always going to be the one that matters the most. This election means 2012. It means 2016. 2020, 2024, 2028, 2032. There is no limit. The most current election will always be the one that is going to change your life that will determine the course of society. It is the future and not the past.

Everyone has them; regardless of how many you have been alive for or how many you have been allowed to vote it. The importance of an election is completely subjective and while many agree on which is the most important their reasons might be very different. What are yours?

Mean Motor Scooter

In the spirit of my other photo blogs (here and here) I thought I might catch you all up on my nephew, Mean Motor Scooter (MMS). He is adorable and brought so much life into my family. I wish I didn't live 1,000 miles away from him and could see him more than I do now. Here we are, from birth to present (it took me FOREVER to get a RECENT picture of MMS).

Driving Lesson

Something has really been bothering me lately. I recently moved and in order for me to drive home I have to drive on a two lane road for 10 miles. Now, this two lane road has a speed limit of 50 mph (totally lame and the majority of us do not drive that slow on it), which turns into 60 mph, 65 mph, or 70 mph depending on how brave you are.

Raise your hand if you know what a PASSING LANE is?


Okay, last chance.

A PASSING LANE is the #1 lane, or left hand lane on a road. Now, the purpose of the PASSING LANE is to

1. keep traffic flowing
2. allow faster traffic to pass slower traffic

Now, how many of you know it is illegal to drive in the PASSING LANE if you are not actually PASSING someone?

Now you do.

So, please do everyone on the road a favor, and only use said PASSING LANE when you are passing someone. After you pass someone it is your responsibility and the LAW to move back into the "slow lane" so that traffic can then pass YOU.

Get it? Good!

I went into my bedroom, closed the door, and started getting ready for my nightly shower.
What was that?

I spun around midway of rinsing off my face.


I carefully finished washing and then dryed off. I turned around to place the towel back on the rack and there HE was. THERE was the introduded!

At least this is one of the senarios my brain kept fumbling through last night. Being all alone in a big house can scare a girl! I mean, someone really could have come into the house. What if they did? I don't like being bymyself and this why! My mind starts to wander to bad things happening. I get scared. I even slept with the bedroom door closed last night and Lover had to wake me up when he got off work for me to open it for him.

It's just something I have to get use to... I guess.

I Needed This Today

E-mail forward: Why Boys Need Parents...

And you also find out interesting things when you have sons, like...

1.) A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft. house 4 inches deep..
2.) If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.
3.) A 3-year old Boy's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.
4.) If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound Boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, if tied to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20x20 ft. room.
5.) You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on. When using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.
6.) The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn't stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.
7.) When you hear the toilet flush and the words 'uh oh', it's already too late.
8.) Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.
9.) A six-year old Boy can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36- year old Man says they can only do it in the movies.
10.) Certain Lego's will pass through the digestive tract of a 4-year old Boy.
11.) Play dough and microwave should not be used in the same sentence.
12.) Super glue is forever.
13.) No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool you still can't walk on water.
14.) Pool filters do not like Jell-O.
15.) VCR's do not eject 'PB & J' sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.
16.) Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.
17.) Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.
18.) You probably DO NOT want to know what that odor is.
19.) Always look in the oven before you turn it on; plastic toys do not like ovens.
20.) The fire department in Austin, TX has a 5-minute response time.
21.) The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy.
22.) It will, however, make cats dizzy.
23.) Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.
24.) 80% of Women will pass this on to almost all of their friends, with or without kids.
25.) 80% of Men who read this will try mixing the Clorox and brake fluid.

Hope you laughed as hard as I did!

The Anger Test

I took an Anger Test. Not one of those from those stupid websites, but from a place I would consider credible.

The results: I'm angry... Shocked?

Your score = 77

What does your score mean?

Overall, your anger level is slightly elevated. You seem to get angry more often than the average individual. Either you have a hot streak or the situations on the test happened to rub you the wrong way. Whatever the case, you should watch out - you might be on dangerous ground. Anger is a firecracker of an emotion, and isn't something you want to overdo. Some things just aren't worth getting worked up about!

I think that any "situation" where people are inconsiderate is going to rub me the wrong way. Common sense people! Common sense.
