I Have Some Seriously Random Thoughts

How many Jewish Grandmothers does it take to screw in a light bulb? None... They'd rather sit in the dark. I always wondered where WEXICO was... but then I finally turn my souvenir... [more]

  • I Think Marijuana Should Be Legalized

    Does Weed Make You Horny? I don't know if you've ever seen the 1950-60s movie called "Reefer Fever", but it's hilarious. The theme behind it is all of the terrible things that people will do if they smoke grass... like turning… [more]
  • I Think Marijuana Should Be Legalized

    My Incredibly Emotionally Needy Great Dane Puppy. I have a beautiful (or so everyone says) 6-month-old Great Dane puppy. (She's black, so we call her Raven.) I'm SOOOO happy that I started training her the day we got her because she weighs 70 pound… [more]
  • I Have Student Loan Debt

    $1 Trillion Dollars In Defaulted Student Loans, And How Are We Going To Pay Them Back?? I went to a prestigeous college for both the second half of my bachelor's program and my MBA. What started out as a $60,000 debt is now over $250 thousand because of interest and penalties. I took tim… [more]
  • I Loved Someone That Didn't Love Me

    Hey... Nobody's Perfect I was going through a very rough time when I met 'Clarke' (not his real name). I had been sexually assaulted by a desk clerk at a hotel where I hwas staying for business (I had him arrested, tried and… [more]

    Whe I Went to Jail
    When I Went To Jail  Everyone thinks that I’m such a grounded, stable person, but I’ve been tossed into jail 3 times.The first time was when I drank a glass of cranberry juice after brushing my teeth and gargling with Listerine. I had a bladder infection, and I had forgotten to drink a glass of juice, so when I saw one sitting in the fridge almost completely full, I gulped it down, not realizing that it was laced with vodka.  I was in a hurry, so I jumped into my car, and didn’t notice any unusual effects because I was so pumped with adrenaline. Well, I was on the freeway and moving into the fast lane when some woman decided to cut me off and sped up so that I couldn’t get in front of her,  … [more]
  • Funny Confessions

    I was a pyromaniac as a child
    I think that it all started when my parents gave me a chemistry set for Christmas.  I used to go down in the basement and make strange concoctions, instead of following the instructions.  I sooned learned the merits of salt peter, charcoal (ground up) and sulphur... the main ingredients of gun powder... not to mention gasoline, laundry detergent, sugar, alcohol, and a few other 'fun things'  Even candles could be fun... I set the toilet seat on fire one night when the lights went out.I learned how to make smoke bombs, tear gas, Molotoff cocktails (That's one everyone knows.), and turned my little brass cannon into a genuine weapon that I'd shoot at my little friends' toy soldiers.  I made ne… [more]

    My WORST Halloween Experience EVER
    My children were in  a private grade school... the only one in town was Catholic (YIKES!!!), and the school was hosting a Halloween party, in which all of the children and parents were supposed to come in costume.Well, I made my oldest son the Holy Ghost (which was okay because he just looked like a ghost), my daughter a big, fat pumpkin, and my youngest son a robot.  (There was going to be a best-costume contest, and my daughter actually won!)Anyway, I wanted my husband and me to dress up like Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben (Are we detecting a little political incorrectness here?), but he refused to go in costume, and took the kids to the party ahead of me.  I did the whole Aunt Jemima thing... … [more]

    I'm Moving And I'm STRESSED!!!
    I've moved over 50 times in my lifetime,  but mostly with loved ones.  I've moved a couple of times by  myself, but only for short distances, where I knew where I was going.  Now, I'm moving 1000 miles away, and even though I have a shipping company doing the 'tough' stuff, I'm still freaked out.I'm moving to another State, in a location where I've never been.  I know how to get halfway there, but the rest of the trip is a total mystery to me.The problem is that my over-protective husband, who loves me dearly, is treating me like an incompetent idiot, just because I nearly died on him twice.  I have as high an IQ as he does (which is pretty damned high), but he keeps making me feel like a st… [more]
  • Why Congress Can't Get Anything Done

    Posted on: April 23rd, 2012 at 5:04PM

    For decades, the Republicans and Democrats have been fighting with one another just to get the 'upper hand'.  I don't think they really CARE about thier constiuancies, I think that they just want power. I've noticed that one party can come up with an idea, and if the opposing party starts to agree with it, the first party tries kicking the pins out of the whole thing.  It doesn't matter if we're talking about the Democrats or the Republicans because keeping party unity (The Republicans are a joke during this election season in that regard.) is more important that doing what's right. I think that we need a third party... the Independents, who could potentially break up the constant dogfights … [more]

  • Why does America have to be the 'World Cop'?

    Posted on: April 16th, 2012 at 1:07AM

    I realize that we're the "Home of the Brave, and the Land of the Free", but why, oh why, do WE always have to be the ones who clean up the messes in other countries...at the educational and prosperital expense of our own people? As as student of business, I realize that war has been a profitable endeavour for the U.S., particularly WW2, where we destroyed the infrastructure of all our international competetors, with virtually no physical casualties to our civil population... except Hawaii, which wasn't a State at the time,...and a couple of ineffectual blasts off of our coastlines; however, we aren't the singular 'super power' anymore..Except in terms of military strength. While we're out th… [more]
