Face in Hole

If you're a visitor to earth2karen you have seen her Chewbacca FACEinHole.com picture. Well I was wanting to play around with it too, but I don't or didn't think I had a pic of my face. I know, how can I not? Well, YOU may live in the 21st Century but I'm a bit baroque. So, in keeping with the Baroque theme, I found this Face in Hole that I wanted to use and I found a softcopy of a pic of me. Weeeee !!!!
Do you think I'm sexy baby?

Jason Lezak wrote me

You will recall that I was totally taken with Jason Lezak's performance in the Olympics. Yes, the other guy did really really well. But Jason Lezak really made his mark and was a true team player at the 2008 Summer Olympics. Also recall that I joined his fan club and was just silly about it. Well he's written me and has invited me to watch him on The Best Damn Sports Show Period. (written me via blog post - I can only hope he'd write me personally)
I'm there for you baby, I'll be watching!!! I don't have cable, but some way I'm gonna be all over a television watching you talk to just me and only me... bring it on sexy!!
I suppose you all can watch too. Check out the listing to watch Jason Lezak.

Invisible Blog Slacker

Blog Slacker

I've been feeling a bit lethargic and selfish with my time lately. The Olympics have also been grabbing a huge chunk of my attention. My dog has been needy and all oddly lovey. I'm still in a sorta me-time funk, so ya just need to bear with me. For now I think I'm going to go to bed early and listen to the thunder and rain drifty by this part of town. I trust you all are well.
I just need another day or two of Invisibility.

Come again?

Okay, here I go...

I was doing my thing, and this time it was at WalGreen's. I was buying a card for a friend's birthday that's rapidly approaching. That's all I wanted. I did get my card, but in the process I got a good laugh out of the lady-cashier. Race cards on the table - she's a teenage black girl. The line was well salted and peppered with a variety of folks from the 'hood. This young lady was not doing herself any favors by not speaking even decent English. I certainly couldn't understand most of what she was saying. She got the hint when the two upstanding ghetto fabulous boys behind me snickered at her. They were making fun of her so loudly that most of the people in the line were chuckling. The biggest chuckle came when she asked (and this is my best guess) "What's everybody laughing at?" What she actually said, if I can phonetically write it out was "Wad e'erbai laf'n et?"
Try as I might, I just laughed out loud. One the guys behind me hit me in the shoulder, because it was so damn funny. He got her good too. He said loudly "E'erbai" laughing at you. Well that was a funny ending to a manic Monday.


I nominate Jason Lezak as Aquaman
...if and when they get around to making the supercool movie.
And yes, I did think this up today while at work.
Why? what did you do at work?

Jason Lezak

I'm so gay.
I just joined his fan club!

1:6 Wins

If Jason Lezak were a 20 oz bottle of Diet Dr. Pepper I would gulp him down. Kudos to him for bringing up the rear twice in men's swimming, bringing home the Gold!!!
And that's saying alot because I really can't stand the taste of Diet Dr. Pepper or Dr. Pepper for that matter. The above picture is the very lame 1:6 prize that I won by playing the Indiana Jones IV - Dr. Pepper bottle cap code contest. Whoopdie doo! How lame is that. So I sent the picture to Jadielady because she's big on the little guy in the picture. It's meant to be screen wallpaper. I'll pass.

It's all in La Cabeza

This mouse is no Olympian and he's not helping his energy level any by staying up late to watch the fanfare.
Oh well, I'll get over it.
Plug: Many are Michael Phelps fans. I'm a Jason Lezak fan.

Nice Slugs
I like them. I described myself as a slug to a buddy of mine. The lethargy seems to have caught me and I don't want to let go. Sometimes, doing nothing and gloating within it sort of relaxing and at somepoint energizing. But not quite yet. But I figure if I'm going to describe myself as a slug, I might as well be a pretty slug. I have had things to do and planned to do them. But that's what to-do lists are for. Kind of like a page marker in a really boring book that you don't want to pick up again but you need to. So what's on my to-do list you ask? Because I know you did...
  • Mow the yard and weed - I hate weeding.
  • Buzz-cut the solomonster 'cause he's shedding really bad now.
  • Put up bathroom curtain so prying eyes can't see my bits and pieces.
  • Go see Dark Knight, with or without THEM.
  • De-paper the piles of needful things.
  • Vacuum and de-dusterize.
  • Consider my cable and high speed internet options.
  • Start planning Christmas presents. Thank god Wayne's is already purchased, he and I are going to see Ms. Turner in November - yeah baby.
  • Take 3 days off at end of August to possibly slug some more.
  • Oh shoot I have Dr., Dentist, and Eye appt on those days. DRAT.
  • Procrastinate, oh please - like you never do that.
  • Get back on my exercise bike (this chunky butt and sportin' in public as is).
  • Ooogle at very cute person in office.
  • Remember not to make to-do list too long.

What's on your to-do list?

Mama Mia - in review

If you are reading this and you are my most favorite buddy in the world and your name is Wayne... I would just like to say how much I enjoyed getting out on Sunday (legs sore as crap from helping another friend move) to go see Mama Mia with you. You know I very much enjoy your company and friendship. I also want you to know that Mama Mia - The Movie was an awesome spectacle and thoroughly worth the free tickets used to get in. The cool environment was relaxing. And I can't stress enough how much I enjoyed my time out. Now Wayne..., you can stop reading.
To all other readers: Please save your money. This movie down right sucked. If you must watch it, please wait for it to come out on DVD and let someone else buy it and you borrow it. I've seen the stage show twice and enjoyed that both times. No, I don't need to see that another time either. The movie ruined that for me, that is for certain. There are two people on this earth that most definitely should never sing and NOT on film; they are Meryl Streep and the hunkalicious Pierce Brosnan. Meryl's was a passable voice. But Pierce, baby, no. NO - NO - NO, not ever again, ever. Take your shirt off as much as you want, but never sing again.
And don't be silly, of course I still love Abba!

Monkeying around

This is the teasing edited shot that I was trying to post last night for my friend Tom. Yeah, another Tom out there. I had done the unthinkable with his wife and he poked fun at me by noting my blog not so long ago:
Tom said...
A fun ride? Was that the movie or your date to the movie
I went to see Hellboy with her folks! Nothing Kinky.
But I was going to either make fun of HIM being HER monkey, or I even thought of asking him "Hey - where's my tail, I must have put it somewhere!" Either way, I wasn't going to waste that picture because it's cute, it's funny (at least to me) and it was friggin hard to get to look right!

blogger sadness

Is this a Haiku?
Internal errors
When uploading my picture
Blog constipation
A haiku has 3 lines that follow as 5 - 7 - 5 syllables. In the sense of a traditional Japanese haiku, I have failed. It doesn't incite a sense of nature, inner peace, and enlightenment. But it does evoke my internal grumble. I created a cute picture for a friend of mine I wanted to tickle. But the damn internal errors keeping my blog from uploading make it impossible at the moment. And I'm not computer savvy enough to know what frigging gremlins are causing it. Well Tom, you're going to have to wait until I do figure it out. But in the meantime, the date I had with your wife was fun, exciting... and involved a good ride.
Bring it on Cowboy!

Finding Jesus

In keeping with the Sunday theme...
This is way better than the Cheesus.
Don't you think?
Find him.

Declan - pt. 10

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.
Anne Frank

The moment Declan emerged from the river, Justine was aware of his presence. The fear in her was immense and she slowly began to cry; her tears, an emerging sprinkling of rain. The natural gift of premonition in her was spinning out of control. She could see the past, present, and future; as angry energy. She watched her brother enter the Travelodge. The more she watched over her brother, the sadder she became. She frowned in sorrow, darkening the sky. Letting loose a torrent of tears that flooded the streets. She watched Valniria and Hati dig in the cemetery. She witnessed Jenii protecting her brother at the cemetery entrance and showing him the package he was seeking. She cried even harder when the apparitional boy and his truck retreated into the cemetery to be terrorized by the others. Justine knew the boy needing saving too, and she cried even more.
New to being an elemental, Justine has not yet harnessed her power. The turbulence in her would not allow her control. Only her love for brother was keeping her from unleashing her wrath to try to free herself. *Danger – Danger – Danger* recanted in her being.
The spirit guide that wisped her away to the Carpathian Mountains appeared within the center of Justine’s tempest. She is known by name Oya to the Yoruba people of Nigeria. Oya released her own tempest calling upon the winds of the southern hemisphere to turn counter to Justine. Not to be stopped from feeling her pain, Justine grew darker and more defiant. Master and pupil began to rage upon each other. Lightening began to scatter in all directions. Acting as a mother goddess only could, Oya spanked her child with blasting winds. Her attempts to diffuse the fury were wearing Justine down. Exiting the inner turmoil, Oya wrapped herself around her daughter to comfort Justine. To help her gain composure and focus for the task at hand.
Though, still a part of our world, Oya would no longer interfere directly with the evolution of the world. She does maintain a desire for lending a helping hand to those that still carry influence.
Whispering in the winds ear, Oya says to Justine “Calm your heart child, your time will come when you can truly lash out at the enemy.”
At that moment Justine wails and let’s out a shattering bolt of electricity that lights up the sky in all directions. Justine releases one last bolt of lightening and it races down to earth. It stabs straight into the right shoulder of HIM. “I feel better mother, I have weakened him!” and she falls into Oya’s arms to rest.
“Yes, and now HE is certain that there is a war on!” Oya whispers.
“Oya, you may leave me now. I understand now that the peace within me gives me strength and knowledge. Otherwise, I would not have known that HE stood amidst the poplars.” … and the rain subsides. But she cannot feel her brother anywhere near.

Sunday Special

Think you've seen everything?

My friend Shana created her own Superhero and she named it Lexa and then emailed it to me. She is not a blogger, so I told her that I would post it for her. Many of you have taken a shine to creating your own Hero. And I am glad - 'cause it's been a difficult week and I need some giggles and fun.
I ended my work day stressed over a delay in getting a big case completed, waiting on final approval - after that person said they'd get to it "next" a couple of times that day. And I apparently was LAST. But at least I got to see THAT person at the end of the day. And my work week ended on an up-beat. *wink* hee hee.
Just got done helping a friend move (note: I got in at midnight) from a 'not so great home environment' to a well deserved refreshing new start. I wish her and her oh-so-adorable daughter well!
I had kept a fair amount of my friend's belongings at my house. I got to move them to her place all by my lonesome. But there was youthful assistance when I got to the new place. Which was much appreciated. I think my legs are going to be screaming at me in the morning.
Time to kick back and relax a bit then head to bed. Yeah, and a shower would hurt beforehand, I wreak!
