Suppose you were sentenced to solitary confinement for life. You get to choose one song to listen to for the duration....as long as it is a Phil Collins solo tune. Which one do you pick?
I would pick an interesting tune I like to call "Vamrat Shooting Himself With an Old Belgian Revolver".
And everybody knows that Vamrat really looks like the saint in his picture, so that's a funny image.

If I grew my chin-beard out I probably would look similar.  Reverse-Hitler 'stache and all.

Glad you are OK, Liza!

I needed to stop buying makeup...yesterday. And I just cannot get enough. If I wasn't into buying anything else, it wouldn't be too much of an issue (well, it would still be an issue). But I am getting addicted to trying things. Ugh.

It's quality corn like this that makes me keep coming back!

I reached the pinnacle of hipsterdom tonight. I was in Church waiting for someone to give me a ride home, and there I stood with a rose and a baggie of antidoran in one hand, and a book on existentialism in the other.

Antidoran and existentialism, I understand. What was the rose for?

Regarding the rose, I dunno, went to the feast of the elevation of the cross, and when I went up to venerate the cross at the end a guy gave me (and everyone) a rose.

Does anyone here have a blog? Roll call.

I've been working on a project, but it deals with cosmetics, so I doubt that 99.9% of the board would be interested in reading it. LOL. But I do want to read OC.net users' blogs.

You know that pause you do when you're talking, and about to say something complicated or difficult? For instance, you say "Well..." or "Hmm..." and then pause for a few seconds gathering your thoughts?  I invented that pause.

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Nicolas Sarkozy and David Cameron landed in Libya to a heroes' welcome on Wednesday, promising help for the new rulers French and British air power helped install and being told the favor may be repaid in deals on oil and reconstruction.


This is REUTERS. I think that sentence is so awful.

I read CNN and BBC and get really depressed with the typographical and grammatical errors...why don't I just apply for the editorial positions?!  ???

Someone just stole my bank card number and tried to buy stuff, but the fraud hotline stopped them. Whew! I would just suggest getting the protection if your bank offers it. Yipes. I feel kind of icky now, but very grateful.

My fan just broke. What the...?  Just stopped dead. Now I only have a ceiling fan, which ain't getting it done. Is this some kind of cosmic joke? I go all summer with just a box fan and no air conditioning and I'm fine, and now it's september and I'm sweating and hot? Ha, ok, I'll laugh with you Ms. Universe. I feel your cruel boot on my neck. I give.

I have just finished purchasing very ugly headphones with a microphone, because evidently everything on the Tempe campus of ASU must shut down on Saturday's, no later than 4 P.M., except for the P.O.D. Market (a convenience store).

Speaking of blogs, would anyone read one if I started one?

Love it!

This was quite an interesting weekend. Hubby and I are now sick and worn out, but it was a very busy weekend. Among the festivities that occurred was going shooting for the first time...I already know what type of gun I want to first purchase for myself (well, the basic type)! I'm not going to say it was easy, though. I was terrified when they first handed me a handgun. Everyone thought that I was "kidding" when I told them that I was born into an anti-gun Asian family and had never held a firearm in my life until I took the first shot (it was a foot high off the target). They gave me the safety lecture and told me how to aim, but some of the guys said they thought I had at least shot once or twice....obviously they are not from the north. ;)

It was a lot of fun to shoot targets, though. Apparently a lot of the guys and gals do that around here on the weekends.


Now I have to do the work I've been putting off all weekend. Lovely. I hope that this upcoming week will be more calm, especially since I feel terrible. No time to be sick with publishing week coming ahead. :(

Is Azurestone speaking Ukrainian!

You should totally try, JamesRottnek. Even self-teaching is better (sometimes) than not knowing anything at all. When I have nothing to do, I have a pile of French, Hebrew, etc. workbooks at my disposal. My knowledge is a perfect mishmash but I hope to hit fluency on one of them someday. My professors told me to just pick one language, but I'm ADD in everything, even foreign language study. Just trying to stick to Arabic and Spanish now...


PS YES I will read anyone's blog. If any females are interested in reading about the beauty industry, PM me and hopefully I can provide a link once I get this project off the ground (if I have TIME).

Wait, I forgot my ultimate brag for this weekend: I actually shot a X (on the paper "human" targets) from 50 feet away. I am keeping the paper for posterity. I am too much of a lady to reveal that my other shots were wildly inconsistent, although half of them were kill shots. (The guys were laughing at me and saying that I sounded like the people giving commentaries on "Deadliest Warrior." Yeah, probably.)


Okay, now I gotta get off this board and start working! OC.net, why can't I quit you?
