Proper English, It's Not Just For Grammar Nazi's

 
 
On his 64th birthday, a man got a gift certificate from his wife. The certificate paid for a visit to a medicine man living on a nearby Indian reservation, which was rumored to have a wonderful cure for erectile dysfunction. After being persuaded, he drove to the reservation handed his ticket to the medicine man and wondered what he would be getting. 

The old medicine man slowly, methodically produced a potion, said some words in his native language and handed it to him, and with a grip on his shoulder, warned, "This is powerful medicine, and it must be respected. You take only a teaspoonful and then say '1-2-3'." "When you do that, you will become more manly than you have ever been
in your life, and you can perform as long as you want." 

The man was encouraged. As he walked away, he turned and asked, "How do I stop the medicine from working?" 
The medicine man replied, "Your partner must say '1-2-3-4.'  But when she does the medicine will not work again until the next full moon." 

He was very eager to see if it worked so he went home, showered, shaved, took a spoonful of the medicine, and then invited
his wife to join him in the bedroom. When she came in, he took off his clothes and said, "1-2-3!" Immediately, he was the manliest of men.

His wife became very excited and began throwing off her clothes, but then asked, "What was the 1-2-3 for?" 

And that, my friends, is why you should never end a sentence with a preposition, because you could end up with a dangling participle.

A New Me!

Actually, it's the same old me, just with a new color scheme and less animation, which by the way does not mean that I will be less animated. Oh no, not I.

This is actually a quick tester post that doesn't have a lot to it, other than it might be the beginning of something new, or at least something to talk about, amongst yourselves at least. Although, please feel free to leave me a comment - it's fun, it's easy and best of all it is FREE!

Okay, that's it for now, Maggie doesn't think that you will be able to see my new signature, and I need to prove her wrong and check to make it actually is working.

See you next time!



Oops!

I kind of hit a button that said something that I thought meant something else, and voila! My blog looks like Caca! That being said, there will have to be a grand opening of some sort when I finish fixing whatever it is that I broke, so as they say...
 
Pardon my dust...

No Doubt, Maybe

Our doubts are traitors,
And make us lose the good me might oft win
By fearing to attempt
~ William Shakespeare


A mind troubled by doubt cannot focus on the course to victory. ~ Arthur Golden


There are two ways to slide easily through life; to believe everything or to doubt everything. Both ways save us from thinking. ~ Alfred Korzybski

Yep, that's about how I am feeling right now, especially since I am thinking that I will be gone for a little bit. I need to get myself better focused on what is going on, and where I want to go. As for now, I think that I will be taking a little break (so much for a blog365 this year, I guess.), which I hope will get me re-energized and all that stuff.

The break is for an indefinite amount of time, which means I could be back tomorrow, next week or never. No worries, I think that I need this more than even I think. Besides, it hasn't been feeling right as of late for some reason, and as much as I like to be goofy, I also like it to feel right.

Hope you understand.

Make Mine With Chocolate!

We are so accustomed to disguise ourselves to others that in the end we become disguised to ourselves. ~ Francois de La Rouchefoucauld
I love the thoughts that come into my mind all of a sudden, almost like a gust of wind that stirs up the dust around your feet. You never really know what to expect. Which, from my point of view, makes life very exciting, very exciting indeed.

Now, you may or may not have guessed that I have no idea about what I am going to be jotting down on these pages, which can lead to some interesting responses.

From my wife especially.

At least she knows me though. For the most part at least. I have known her for more than half of my life after all, so you would think something would rub off after a while.

Stephen King says that "you must never come lightly to the blank page" or something like that. I like that, I like it so much that I can pretty much paraphrase it from memory, as opposed to my quotes from above. Which, while good and all - I wouldn't use them if I didn't like them, dontcha know - are not from my memory. Most of them are sent to me on a daily basis, whereas others I do look up, especially if one of the six I get every day do not strike my fancy.

Random George Lopez quote...

"What's your idea of a fun date?"

"Cock fighting is fun."

"I'll put down bird-watching."

And the laugh track goes wild....

I should probably get this out of my system now, lest I appear to be bitter and all that jazz.

Congratulations to the Canadian Hockey Club - you won the Gold medal. Just remember that you wouldn't have been able to do it without the three Chicago Blackhawks on your team.

But your closing ceremony was still really lame. :P
