I'm extremely disappointed my 3 year old niece doesn't want to be a hockey player anymore...I had hopes of achieving Olympic Gold through her...

You mean these lyrics...

Rhinestone Cowboy
Words & Music by Larry Weiss

I've been walkin' these streets so long
Singin' the same old song
I know every crack in these dirty sidewalks of Broadway
Where hustle's the name of the game
And nice guys get washed away like the snow and the rain
There's been a load of compromisin'
On the road to my horizon
But I'm gonna be where the lights are shinin' on me

Like a rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo
Like a rhinestone cowboy
Getting cards and letters from people I don't even know
And offers comin' over the phone

Well, I really don't mind the rain
And a smile can hide all the pain
But you're down when you're ridin' the train that's takin' the long way
And I dream of the things I'll do
With a subway token and a dollar tucked inside my shoe
There'll be a load of compromisin'
On the road to my horizon
But I'm gonna be where the lights are shinin' on me

Like a rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo
Rhinestone cowboy
Gettin' cards and letters from people I don't even know
And offers comin' over the phone

Like a rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo

Rhinestone cowboy
Gettin' cards and letters from people I don't even know

I thought his A$$hole song from Cure for Cancerwas pretty funny. His recent show, The Job, quality varied so much it was difficult to know whether to watch or not.

Went to the San Diego Zoo this weekend and I love seeing the monkey exhibits. So, off we go to see my favorite little dudes. Well, large crowd is watching a Mom monkey cuddle a baby monkey and a loud "awwww" goes through the crowd. Then the Dad monkey who is watching this whips is doohickey out and get to his *ahem* "job". Immediately everyone's eyes get big and the crowd does a 180. James and I overhear a Dad telling his 13 y.o. son "that's the famous spanking monkey you hear so much about."

Churning Ovaries would be a good name for a band. Has anyone seen the "trunk monkey" commercial yet?

Monkeys' Day Out

A lorry driver breaks down on the M6 with a cargo of live monkeys on board, bound for Chester Zoo. They need to be delivered by 9:00 am and the driver fears he will get the sack if they don't get there on time. He decides to try and thumb a lift for his monkeys and eventually an Irish lorry driver pulls over.

"Where they going?" asks the Irish chap.

"Do us a favor mate and take these to Chester Zoo for me" says the driver, "and here's a hundred quid for your troubles."

"Happy days," says the Irish fella, loads the monkeys onto his truck and gets on his way.

The lorry driver goes about trying to fix his truck and is there for good few hours when he notices the Irish fella coming back down the motorway, still with all the chimps on board. Panicking, he flags him down again.

"What are you playing at," he fumes, "I told you to take them to Chester Zoo!"

"I did," says the bemused Irish fella, "but there is still fifty quid left so now we're going to Alton Towers."

I should know better than to read the FAC before I've had some coffee.

[As a safety precaution, I try not to drink & read. Snarfing hot coffee could do irrepairable harm.]

I need to spice up my image with a nice rear window sticker of Calvin pissing on something.

- or maybe a "No Fear" sticker, those things are BAD!

NRA Life Member, USMC Emblem, #6 (less redneck than a 3), PA Emergency Medical Technician, USCF sticker, and Sergeant Chevron over the DOD sticker on the front.

My stickers are all on my roof rack

1) IMBA (land access organization)
2) Race Face (bicycle components manufacturer)
3) Maine Bicycle Coalition
3) VeloNB (NB provincial cycling association)
4) DEKERF (Best stell mtn bike manufacturer)
5) TREK
6) Poley MTN (home of teh NB Canada Cup event)
7) ECMTB (East Coast MTB web site)

And #6 would be 2x as redneck as #3.

[EDIT] - to explain what each one is [/EDIT]

Rob is relaxing in the car sticker arena - he let me put my Geneseo sticker on our older car, and he put a Clemson Paw Print in the window (which is how I find the car in a parking lot). He also got a bug in his head, and put on a "Vote for the Environment" Sticker on the rear window. Now, granted, he can be a very environmental kind of guy, but he is also super anal about his cars.

I refuse to put any bumper or window stickers on my car. I don't even like putting the Wisconsin State Park sticker on the window...but I do it because I have to.

Other than the Maine Bike Coalition I have no idea what those stand for.

I don't have a backyard right now as I live in a high-rise condo.

Can't wait to have one again though...

You can find them from time to time around here... but they are more common in other places I've lived.

Oh I kknew what it was (remember my avatar from flag week?)
I just think 99% of the population has no concept of these things. Around here most people dont know about the yellow 'equal' sign on the blue background for the HRC either.

Oh yeah... you did have it for flag week. Duh! I've been really busy and my mind isn't really together today. Heh... well now, everyone else will know what it is. Don't tailgate or flip the bird to the cars with these stickers, or you may get a special whippin'. ;)
