Motivated for Halloween Specials?

Shout Out: Andi who made call backs for the musical audtions!

Good day,

Yeah, I didn't get this posted first thing, which might make you think the motivation seminar didn't do its job. That's just not true. I was motivated to do my job, which I think my boss would say that was a better motivation than this piece.

It was a great seminar, even Colin Powell was good to listen to. He was quite funny. Now, of course, the man of the hour, was George W. Bush, and he was as funny and wonderful as I remember. Terry Bradshaw was hilarious and there were several others that were wonderful to listen to. Since I'm on the political side for the moment I find it hilarious that although the left tries to defend their position of reporting on Obama they can't deny what they're doing. Here's a great article called,
What If Bush Had Done That.

However, this is more of a Halloween update special. Now, I want to make sure you know that Charlie Brown's Halloween Special will be airing on both the 27th and 28th (today and tomorrow for those without a calendar) on ABC. So be sure to look for listings and watch.

Next, I found this link particularly funny:
65 of Sci-Fi's Most Amusing "One Letter Off" Movie Titles Now, if you think you can do better I feel you should submit them to me and everyone else as I'm sure we can all use the laugh. :D

Now, this is where I spent most of my time,
31 Classic Halloween TV episodes and specials, and you probably will too as this had some great clips. It includes my favorite Simpson Tree House Horror Episode, which is Tree House Horror V, and includes the clip:

So funny and soo good. I'll have to see if I can find one of my favorite Simpsons moment for another update. I think this concludes this week. Short and brief. Just like you like it. :-)
Also my church is having their Fall Festival this Sunday on the 1st. Stop by and support the academy. Or me, I have a fun game of racing ping pongs. I want tournament participants of each age.
I hope you all have a great Halloween!

Frustrated Fears and Answers

So this weekend I was "holding down the fort". It wasn't the easiest task, but I accomplished it, which included a security certificate. Another high-five for me! Granted one of those days of fort holding involved Six Flags, but it still wasn't all easy. For example I found that when riding the Batman ride that for me, it was better if I just closed my eyes. Heights terrify me, but I love speed, so by closing my eyes I didn't have to worry about where I was, but I got to feel the speed and rush. It was great. However, this did not extend to the Titan, which I still refuse to ride. One step at a time guys.

Also this weekend Andi conviced me to try her Boba tea from the Tea and Donughts shop in the old Winn-Dixie area. I even liked the tapioca. It was odd tasting, but I liked it. Meanwhile I found this link to be of interest. It's optical illusions. Enjoy.

That article was very fun when my eye started twitching. My body is rebelling against its self. My arm has followed in the twitching department as well. Have I mentioned my frustration? Speaking of said frustrating subject, ever get a song stuck in your ear? Well this
article from the Straight Dope helps explain why that happens. Great article. Go read it. I'll wait.

I know, who knew music could be like a mosquito bite to your brain? Oh, don't know what I'm talking about, go read the article. I said I would wait... welcome back. Now, as many know I'm not an Obama supporter. And his pansy way of dealing with those that don't like him gets on my nerves. However, that doesn't mean his supporters can't be funny every now and then. Remember the SNL skit? Well, I found this video. It is based on the T.I. song, "Dead and Gone". I laughed when I saw this and I think you will too. Especially since the dude playing Obama does such a great job.

Funny wasn't it? Speaking of Presidents, next Monday I get to go the Get Motivated seminar where George W. Bush is scheduled to speak. I'm so excited. You can all be jealous now.
Well this concludes today's post. I got some answers on Sunday. Some really good ones. This is a plug for Bro. Shawn because if you didn't hear his sermon on Sunday you really need to. So good. And it certainly answered some of the questions I had.
Now, I don't want to dwell on this much longer because it annoys me, but I want to say that today I'm trying to let it go. All of it. I have absolutely NO IDEA what to do next. So, I'm trying desperately to give it all over to God. I know no other solution or answer. This isn't easy for me in the least, but I have no choice. So I'm giving it over, and I need your prayers that He will send me more answers.

Getting A Little Distressed

I wish I knew what to do. It would make things simpler, I think. Of course with my luck it would not, so perhaps not knowing what to do is the better way to go? Meanwhile, I've been scowering the internet to give me some insight for at least a few minutes. What I've found I'll share. A service I like to provide for those who need this too.

I think we're all guilty of using some over-used words. I don't mind most of them. However, this
article justifies my absolute hatred for the word, 'whatever'. I mean I've never truly hated many things, except this word (especially when used flippantly toward me) and the song, "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me" by Culture Club. And in answer to their question every time I hear that song I do want to hurt them and hurl a flippant "whatever" at them.

Perhaps I'm starting to have a Clark Griswald breakdown. It is entirely possible. The frustration is getting to me and trying to stay positive and hopeful is really becoming a chore. If you, like me, need a reminder of what going off the deepend is like you can go
here. However, a warning that there is language and crude humor. If you're not into the Vacation movies just skip this link.

There, don't you feel better? On a positive note, because I do have a few, a website we've been working on,
CookiesInABox.net is coming around in the search engines. I'm responsible for getting it back up there. I'm excited by this. I've done something right. I also probably caused the decline for a few days, but within three days we went from no presence on Google to having a few keywords show up in the first ten links. So, Go Me!

In celebration of my psychotic need to actually be contributing to the workforce I found this video endearing. Perhaps it is because it uses a song I love, "9 to 5" by Dolly Parton. Maybe because it features scenes from a show I used to love to watch, Supernatural. Or perhaps (and this is what I'm thinking) that it features a line that I love, "It's another day at the office. A massive and dangerous at the office." Uttered by the great character, Dean Winchester. I don't know why I love that line, but there it is. You can view it
here. No need to thank me.

So that brings this weekly update to a close. As you can tell I'm praying for answers. Lots of them. Be in prayer for me as I struggle at this time in my life. Meanwhile, if you have a prayer request feel free to email me or send a private message.
Until next time, or if Cousin Eddie takes me up on a few suggestions, stay safe folks!

Hello everyone!

I have so much to share with you today. Including a video that had me rolling, so hopefully you can get a good laugh out of it as well. No music necessarily this week. Well, we'll see.
First up in the humor department we have this:

This is a demonstration of the Neti Pot. I do not make this up!
Second up is this: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ynews/ynews_pl942 A sketch from SNL about Obama. The clip is humorous yes, but it is the response to the skit I find even more funny. The other side can make fun of George W. Bush, but when it is on them they have no sense of humor? Come on, even I laugh at a good joke. Never the less, one does need to check this out.

Because I'm late to the ball at times here is the article with video on the protest I went to last Monday.
http://cbs11tv.com/local/Metroplex.atheists.North.2.1214396.html And yes, the rumor is true. I left at 6:30 so I could see the new One Tree Hill because no, I don't have DVR. If you go to the church you can see me and my smiling face on the bulletin board.

For those of you with a political bent (especially if you bend to the right) I found this article incredibly funny. Seriously?
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ynews/ynews_ts935 Read for yourself.

I'm also thinking of having a quote survivor round, where I place ten quotes I think are good, each week one gets voted off until the best quote remains. I'm thinking of starting with movie quotes, anyone else remember this line? "Excuse me, sir. Seeing as how the V.P. is such a V.I.P., shouldn’t we keep the P.C. on the Q.T.? ‘Cause if it leaks to the V.C. he could end up M.I.A., and then we’d all be put out in K.P." - Okay, that's from Good Morning Vietnam, but it gave me a laugh.

Meanwhile, durring all of this hilarity I've been baking. My first item was an Apple Spice Cake. It tasted good, but could use improvement. My second was a batch of White Chocolate Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cookies. Tasted good, but word of advice, crush the snot out of that cereal, otherwise you could lose a tooth. Then I tried a buttermilk pie. Three pies to be exact. All disasters. So to soothe my ego and sanity I did the apple spice cake again last night. Much, much better. Now, if only they would remain fat free after you warmed them up and put butter on them...hmmm....

Anyway, keep that sense of humor kids and pray for me some wisdom as I try to determine which way to go!

Have a great week and see you all soon!
