Today's Laugh

    I got this in an email today and thought it was too funny not to share. Thanks for the laugh Joanne!!
    1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.
    2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
    3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.
    4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.
    5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
    6. Was learning cursive really necessary?
    7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
    8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
    9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.
    10. Bad decisions make good stories.
    11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.
    12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.
    13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.
    14. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
    15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
    16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.
    17. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.
    18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
    19. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?
    20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!
    21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.
    22. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.
    23. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.
    24. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.

    Heal the past, live the present, dream the future.

    Enjoy life!!!

    We had a great weekend. There was lots of lying around the house. Lots of BBQ and lots of swimming. There was even a migraine but even that did not put a damper on my good mood.

    We went out to the Chicopee Tube Park where they have a zip line, a eurobungy trampoline, a vertical playground, summer tubing and a spider web climber. I didn’t do any of the climbing or jumping things and I have to admit the tubing was lame but the zip lining was awesome!!

    You climb all the way up the hill, and climb up to the top of the wooden platform where you wait until it’s your turn. Then, when the light goes green, you open the gate and step out onto a tiny suspended staircase that has no railing. From there you slide or jump off and scream your way to the bottom. It’s only 300 metres and you’re at the bottom in about 22 seconds but it was so much fun. Even Isobel was able to zip down.

    The place was not crowded nor was it expensive. I would absolutely do it again.

    Next up is the Eco Adventure Tour in Collingwood as soon as Isobel is 85 lbs. Or bungee jumping.

    I think I might be an adrenaline junkie.
