15 Minutes of Fame....And a Request for Your Input.

Judge Greg Mathis. I would have to say that this is the reality show judge (and I use the term Judge loosely) that dredges in the lowest of the lowest in "court" cases.



(OK, stop right there. In court I believe the correct way to address the judge is Your Honor, Sir, or even Judge Mathis, but not just least not in Virginia. Things may be different in Detroit or California).


Plaintiff- "Judge, I was in love with the defendant. She was a wonderful woman. We both have strong Christian values. We felt a strong attraction but we abstained from any sort of "physical relationship" (I changed his exact wording there) because of our relationship with God."
"We got married in about a year and things went fine for a while but then she started to have problems with my use of Crack.".

Judge- "Let me get this straight. Your Christian values prevented you from a physical relationship (yes,Ii changed the wording again), but you had no problem passing around the Crack Pipe?".

blah blah blah blah blah

Plaintiff- "We ended up getting divorced but we are still friends and still have a physical relationship.".

blah blah blah blah


ok, here's my question. I would love to receive your comments on this from a Biblical view.

First of all, obviously the Bible makes no secret of the laws of God regarding pre-marital sex. no question there.

I am not as well versed with my Bible as many of you. I know there are negative verses regarding drinking and I believe there are negative verses regarding certain drugs.

Question- Although it is illegal, immoral, dangerous and smoking crack a sin?

STOP RIGHT THERE! I am in no way considering taking up such a habit....(had to get that straight immediately). I am just curious and I know that there are quite a few of my readers that will have much more insight on this than I do.

Question- I know the Bible frowns on divorce but is it a sin? (Quick Thank You God For Forgiveness). Also, what about having a physical relationship with the EX, AFTER the divorce? ALSO, if divorce IS a sin, then would a physical relationship, with an ex, still be considered being with your husband or wife?

Question- If you remarry, are you committing adultery?

I'm pretty sure (though not completely sure....because I am seldom completely sure on anything), that some of this isn't addressed in the Bible so I'm just wondering your opinions. Although Bible verses to back it up are great too.

AGAIN, I'm not going this route...really, (REALLY, REALLY, REALLY). I'm just curious.
I would love your input.

After all, Monkeys Can't ALWAYS be Funny. Sometimes they are just curious.
(Good thing Cats aren't funny. You know what curiously does to them!).

Random Dozen

Welcome to the Random Dozen. Hosted by Linda at 2nd Cup Of Coffee.

1. Have you ever fired a gun or shot a bow and arrow?

My gun is a hard worker and is very responsible. It has become a part of the family. I imagine I'll keep it until it retires.My bow and arrow, on the other hand, have been nothing but trouble. I need to go ahead and fire them....I think shooting them would be a bit extreme.

2. Do you know where your childhood best friends are?

I'm happy just knowing where my kids are.

3. Are you usually early, late, or on time?

It depends on whose time we're talking about.

4. Are you more of a New York or California type?

Neither. My typing stinks. I'm happy when I reach 30 wpm.

5. Do you have a special ring tone?

As long as it doesn't turn my finger green, I'm happy.

6. What is your favorite type of chip?

A chip off the ol' block.

7. Best comedy you've ever seen is ....

The funny ones.

8. Have you ever cut your own hair? To quote Dr. Phil, "How'd that work for ya?"

Rosanne Rosanna Danna Hair Fun Fact....You can't tell the difference.

9. If you were going to have an extreme makeover, would you rather it be about your house or your personal self?

Neither. I would kindly give it to my mother to use for herself....they do inner-self make overs don't they?

10. Are you allergic to anything?

Only the things that cause me to have allergic reactions.

11. Why is it so hard to change?

What's the big deal? You go to the closet, pick out another outfit and put it on.

12. One last question dedicated to February love: CS Lewis said, "To love is to be vulnerable." Please share one example of that assertion or share any thought you'd like to about this topic.

I'm sorry. I didn't hear the question.

Today Is Tuesday. You Know What That Means

Today is Tuesday.
You know what that means.
We're gonna have a special guest!!

So put on your ears.
Like good mousekateers.
Cause Tuesday is Guest Star DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have a very good friend in our circle of blog friends.
In my opinion, "Will-Power" is her middle name (although she seems to think otherwise).
She loves to watch tv but doesn't.
She misses it....but get this....she reads! She gets things done!! She takes pictures!! She has a relationship with her family!! I bet she even cooks and cleans....geez.
AND, luckily for us, she blogs. Through her blogging we have had they pleasure of a new friend.

I asked her for some of her favorite old tv shows. Of course, putting someone else first, before herself, she mentioned one of her dad's favorite old shows......and even one of his favorite parts of that show. It brought her good memories thinking about her dad watching that show and laughing at some of the incredible ridiculous/hilarious skits. I was thrilled because it was one of my faves to.

SO......Today's special guest is dedicated to 2Thinks! We may just have a few more for her over the next few weeks. But today, enjoy....

Cause Tuesday is Guest Star Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Olympic Curling

I really really wish that the Men and Women competing in the Curling Competition would come and practice on my kitchen floor! I know it would be a huge inconvenience on my part but I'm willing to do my part for the USA!

Today Is Tuesday. You Know What That Means

Today is Tuesday.
You know what that means.
We're gonna have a special guest!!

I am trying to think of a great USA Winter Olympic Moment. Unfortunately, the Kerrigan/Harding fiasco keeps coming to my mind. That entire episode was an embarrassment to the USA and they have not been invited to be our special guest.

So, I was browsing You Tube and came across a fantastic moment in USA Olympic history.
You may or may not remember this....that narrows it down, doesn't it? I was in my early teens but I remember "The Miracle on Ice".

If you don't remember, the story is told on the YouTube clip.

It's the 1980 Winter Olympics and the US is about to stun the world with "The Greatest Sports Moment of the Twentieth Century"....." The Miracle On Ice".

The Kiss of Death

I got a new reader the other day. She left the nicest comment. It said...

"This is the first time I've visited your site, but I'm TOTALLY coming back! You are HILARIOUS! You even made my husband chuckle and that takes a LOT!"

Thank you so much. But now....I'm funny? Oh No! I thought you all came here for deep intellectual reading.

Humor eh.....well, ok. I guess I can change my entire writing style.

Lets see....

A priest and a rabbi went to a bar...

Nope. That doesn't work. Perhaps priests and rabbis go into bars but the chance of both of them going into a bar at the same time is pretty slim. Would they be wearing their church clothes? If they weren't, I wonder how long they would be chatting before they realized they others professions. Would they be drinking? Also, what day of the week would they be there?
Also, isn't one of the main reasons people go to bars is to pick up members of the opposite sex. That isn't an option, is it? I mean, of course priests and rabbis are welcome to go into bars if they want to but even if they did, does that mean someone has to make a joke about it? Can't people just leave them alone! Maybe they were out and about and just wanted a diet coke and a bit of friendly conversation. Don't judge them. That just isn't nice. How would you like to be judged if you went somewhere. What if so many jokes started out with, "A writer and a firefighter went to a library......"? Or how about "A stay at home mom and a decorated war vet went into a Starbucks......"? Just because you go into an establishment, does that automatically mean a joke should be said about it? And what if you aren't in the mood to tell a joke? Would the joke still be funny if you said it later when you were in a funnier mood? Would if be as funny if you said "A stay at home mom and a decorated war vet just walked OUT of a Starbucks......."? And what if they aren't in the mood for Starbucks? What about saying "A stay at home mom and a decorated war vet just walked PAST a Starbucks....."? And what if there isn't even a Starbucks around? And what about people like me that don't even like coffee so rarely visit Starbucks? Where will I go to get my material? Is it fair for me to make a joke about people going into Starbucks if I rarely visit them myself? And what about....

I give up. I just can't be funny "on demand".
And what's so funny about monkeys?

Oh, but seriously, thanks for the nice comment.
And have an outstanding evening. Well, no need to be outstanding. Go in the house. It's awfully cold out there. Have an In-Sitting evening!!

Random Dozen

Welcome to my Random Dozen. this is a meme from Lidna at 2nd Cup of Coffee......but I bet you already knew that!

1. Are you pleasant when you're ill, or are you a grumpy, fussy patient?

Pleasant....really. Of course it is easier now that the kids are older and I can actually rest a bit when I'm sick.

2. When you find out that school is canceled (due to inclement weather) what is your gut reaction?

Haha. Was this written just for me? Honestly it is ok when I turn off the alarm and go back to sleep....but then I have to get up...and there are people in my space.....
ALSO, it is fun the first day. Kind of like a holiday. The 2nd day is still a bit festive. On the 3rd day I was beginning to get a bit annoyed that no one knows how to hang up wet snow clothes and there are puddles of melted snow on the floor (wet socks...yuck). By day 4 my left eye started to twitch and I was feeling a bit jumpy but then on day 5 everything was fine. Nothing bothered me at all as I sat in my own little corner, rocking back and forth, singing incoherently to myself. Days 6,7,and 8 are just a jumbled memory.....

3. What is one domestic skill you wish you could improve?

As a Domestically Disabled woman, it is difficult to choose one. My family would probably be thrilled if I could improve my cooking.

4. Do you decorate your home for Valentine's Day?


5. What song is on your mind today?

Flying Purple People Eater.

OK, not really. It is actually that commercial....Call JG Wentworth 877-CASH NOW!!
I tried to post it here but it keeps ending up at the bottom of this post. At least you now have something to look forward to.

(oh I'm humming Flying Purple people Eater!)

6. Do you prefer contemporary movies or classic?


7. How well do you "compartmentalize" your feelings? For example, how well can you put aside a really trying moment to deal with the immediate situation which is not related to the trying moment, e.g., putting aside a tiff with your spouse in order to finish wallpapering a room.

I am The Queen of compartmentalization!!
(however, not so good at wallpapering...)

8. What is the first thing that attracted you to your spouse? (Or if you're single, to your best friend.)

Sorry, I didn't hear you. What did you say?

9. When was the last time your heart raced?

It was probably that time I drank too much caffeine.

10. What are your memories of Valentine's Day at school?

Making those mailboxes and passing out valentines to the other kids mailboxes. I don't remember all the valentines having candy attached like they do now.

11. If you were going to receive candy for Valentine's Day, which would you prefer?

No big preference but go ahead and wait until the day after and get it half off...better yet, wait a few more days and get it for 75%-90% off.

Oh, don't tell anyone, and I'm sure you couldn't tell, but I'm not big on Valentines Day.... hopefully I'm not big on any day ....... why? Do I look fat to you? DON'T ANSWER THAT!!

12. Red or pink?

1. Red
2. Anything that isn't pink.

The definition of cause and effect....

Alberquando's school schedule (8th grade) for the past 2 weeks and his probable school schedule for the coming week....

The Return of The Dreaded WVB

It seems like the spammers have been out more lately. Because of that, we are encountering more and more of The Dreaded WVB..........Word Verification Box.

As I have mentioned in the past, we should not look at these scrambled letters as an inconvenience, but rather as a wonderful way to enrich our vocabularies. I have learned quite a few new and useful words because of the WVB

For example...
ah yes..
one day I said it to me girl, and now me girls me wife.
And a LOVELY thing she is too.

opps sorry

Monkeys are Funny,

ANYWAY, as I was saying......Here are some more of the words I have learned thanks to The Dreaded WVB.

1. belyros- when you eat too much food and your stomach grows.
"Last night I ate so much dinner that my belyros 2 inches!"

2. antly- the way your mother's sister acts if she is from the north. Down here in the
south they act auntly.

3. cyclint- A cyclops morphed with Clint Eastwood. Go ahead. Make my day!

4. galgab- what we women do when we sit down to chat.

5. jarslism- the study of jars.

6. poman- opposite of rich man.

7. swelyal- another southern word. What one says in the south when things are good.
"We're doin' swelyal.

8. deadlyn- What we have when Lyn passed away. Poor Lyn.

9. adamal- Your dog, cat, a bear, tiger or other mammal. But I hab a cold and by dose is
stopped up.

10. billiat- When you cannot find Billy. "Where's billiat?"

11. milyc. What one kid says to another when they are sharing a lollypop and it is his turn.

12. gralfepi- I have no idea. But I love the sound of it when I say it out loud.

That's all for today!
CHOW! (mein)
