A blonde calls her boyfriend and says, "Please come over
here and help me. I have a killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can't figure out
how to get it started."

He asks, "What is it supposed to be when it's finished?"
The blonde says, "According to the picture on the box, it's
a tiger."
Her boyfriend decides to go over and help with the puzzle. She lets
him in and shows him where she has the puzzle spread all over the
table.
He studies the pieces for a moment, then looks at the box, then turns
to her and says,
"First of all, no matter what we do, we're not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a tiger." He takes her hand and says,
"Second, I want you to relax. And let's put all these Frosted Flakes back in the
box."

You twit :P

...but it was getn quiet in here...

Got the old man coming over from Melbourne tonight for a weekend visit from working away, doing bbq, catching up. It should be good. Kids washed the car last night - poor sods froze their butts off - and the result is pretty patchy on a black car....ah well, I didn't have to do it.

Got bbq buffalo soy/garlic wings and chicken and chive suasages planned, big pot of pasta and alfredo sauce, potato salad and mixed green salad, bread, sauces etc etc.

Ooops...talking about food. That's not allowed here :D Too bad. I did it - you've read it :p

Plans for weekend anyone? Spring has sprung here and its starting to get nice. Apart from all the weeds in the garden

This morning I put my wake-up song on, up the volume and away I sang for the 3rd week in a row, thought I'd share my nuttiness....That's life, that's what all the people say.
You're riding high in April,
Shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change that tune,
When I'm back on top, back on top in June.

I said that's life, and as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks,
Stompin' on a dream
But I don't let it, let it get me down,
'Cause this fine ol' world it keeps spinning around

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate,
A poet, a pawn and a king.
I've been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing:
Each time I find myself, flat on my face,
I pick myself up and get back in the race.

That's life
I tell ya, I can't deny it,
I thought of quitting baby,
But my heart just ain't gonna buy it.
And if I didn't think it was worth one single try,
I'd jump right on a big bird and then I'd fly

I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate,
A poet, a pawn and a king.
I've been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing:
Each time I find myself laying flat on my face,
I just pick myself up and get back in the race

That's life
That's life and I can't deny it
Many times I thought of cutting out
But my heart won't buy it
But if there's nothing shakin' come this here july
I'm gonna roll myself up in a big ball and die
My, My

Oh sing it Frankie........(just got out of the car, still singing)

I swear, I should have been born at the time the Rat Pack were big, I sip martinis, love the whole look of how they dressed, Vegas is and will always be the Hot Spot for glimmer and lights (went to see Dean Martin), I own every piece of music from that time, I named my fish after them (thats right , I did ).
its like sitting on a dream......
I used to have this bird who liked to fly around the house, sometimes he would take little sips from my martini glass, the guests just loved this little guy, his name was Everett, by the time 11:00 rolled around he was flying in all directions. But most of the time he would sit and just nod his head in agreement with what I said, he was an absolute riot !

Ok I guess I better stay quiet now.....before one of you has me committed.

My cat does exactly that... when she decides it's past time for me to change the litter. Unil then, she's very well-behaved.

Sometimes you wish cats could talk . . . "um, could you clean the litter box? Otherwise I'll crap on the floor"

And cats can get away with that cuz we think they're innocent. But I bet they laugh behind our backs.

My cat farts when picked up by someone he doesn't like :lol:
post #193 of 304
Trying to picture a cat laughing....or even the sound of a cat laughing.... it paints a really stange picture.

I know they smirk.

But yeah, they own us, we don't own them.

My 3 got psyched out with the comings and goings of the 18th birthday shindig this weekend - they'll get over it :D

The world needs more things like it. So many people had fun with that, things you would not generally do in public...bouncing up and down, dancing on the "keys"...wonderful.

Switching their gaze from the escalator to the stairs, doing a double take, then taking the stairs and getting active without realising it, smiling, laughing, taking photos even - how often does that happen on any transport system!

Ravioli filled with spam and powdered cheese stuff, with ketchup on it . . . yum. What would go with that? Frozen broccoli, boiled 20 minutes, sounds about right.

It's got all the food groups Yeti.... :)

Couldn't sleep past 4.30 today. Did what any normal person does. Make stock. Had a few onions, bay leaves, end of a smoked cooked shoulder of ham, bone in, peppercorns. Will go back to bed and see later what happens with it.

Sleepless Sunday stocks...they are the best :)

Sounds good :^) I'd like them with eggs over easy. That's a cool trick for flipping the potatoes (new to me even if it's old hat to others).

For an Indian lamb dish, Penzey's "rogan josh" spice mix is excellent! Just follow their directions. Their tandoori chicken spice mix is also really, really good :thumb:
