In a news conference Deanna Favre announced she will be the starting QB for the Packers this coming Sunday. Deanna asserts that she is qualified to be starting QB because she has spent the past 16 years married to Brett while he played QB for the Packers. During this period of time she became familiar with the definition of a corner blitz, and is now completely comfortable with other terminology of the Packers offense.
A survey of Packers fans shows that 65 % of those polled supported the move.
Does this sounds idiotic and unbelievable to you? Well, Hillary Clinton makes the same claims as to why she is qualified to be President and 50% of democrats polled agreed. She has never run a City, County, or State.
When told Hillary Clinton has experience because she has 8 years in the white house, Dick Morris stated "so has the pastry chef".

5. You hear your favorite song in the elevator.

7. Your friends marry and divorce instead of "hook up" and "break up."
8. You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14 (if you're lucky!).

my immediate thought is, that might be a GOOD thing! b/c he hasn't had time to have his back scratched and accept the price involved, and to stop believing change is possible.
on this one i'd love to hear feedback.

i watched a YouTube (linked to a campaign email) today that changed my life. because now i want to work to get this man (click the words to view) elected.
i was brought to the point of tears, because he is preaching HOPE. and this is something we terribly need right now. he is telling us we CAN change the world, and that is something i haven't believed in a long time.
with Oprah backing him, he will be our next President. and that is something i am EXCITED about. also something i have not done in a long time.
watch the video and see if you agree with his message; whether you think he CAN fulfill his promises or not, you will agree that he will try, and that's a huge step in the right direction.
we can change the world.
** that should read, SOME of my family, and they ruin it for the rest of us!

well, she likes to sit on my lap for short periods while i'm working - i usually just pick her up to make her happy while i wrap things up. and she usually faces the computer with me and watches my fingers and the screen and is happy.
today she's grabby. i have a headset on so i can hear my work. today, she faced me, sitting on my leg, holding herself up straight, and grabbed the wires. just a little at first to see if mom will let me - ooh, she did! wrap it around my fingers, then stick them in my mouth? NOPE - mom took the cord back. how about now? if i put them in my mouth again, will mom take them? yup. how about now? how about if i'm sneaky and use my other hand? how about if i keep doing it really fast so i'm a pest and maybe she'll give up?
now she's put me down and taken all my cords away. now i'm mad!
so i put the rated-R and otherwise-inappropriate-for-children movies (can you say Borat?) in a separate area, and also separated out musicals, because they're my greatest comfort-food-for-the-mind; i can see them together and pick one when i need a musical.
then i alphabetized the rest. sequels and series stay together, in order, regardless of title.
my kids love to watch movies. we hardly miss cable. but they had a terrible habit of just slopping the counters up, and things didn't ever get put away. i finally broke them of that with sustained nagging for months on end. now we have a library system; when you take it out, put the card in so you can find where it goes without having to THINK when you're done with it. when you're done with it, PUT IT BACK where you got it!
both sons are very good now about putting things in boxes, but will stack them up until they fall off the shelf.
we have a DVD/VCR player, and #2 son especially will very conscientiously remove the VCR tape from the player and return it to its box (then stack it on the counter if he can possibly balance it) - but he never REWINDS. he's 8, and he hardly knows what rewind means! the days of hitting REWIND after watching a movie were over before he started using the remote.
i feel old. and anal, but that's to be expected.

and oh my goodness! look! i haven't posted much in december at all - and it's over! i've been too busy watching videos and visiting with my few real-world friends and posting movie reviews at myfamily.com.
i'll have to post me some movie reviews - i'm sure that would get some reactions! my current fave is HAIRSPRAY! I even went out and bought it last night. i'm so embarrassed - don't hate me b/c i'm in love with Hairspray!
