Make Me Laugh Monday 2/28/11

With St.Patty's day around the corner, I had to post some Irish/Catholic humor!!!
I was laughing very hard at the marriage jokes!!

____________________________________________________________________________________
A man was just waking up from anaesthesia after surgery, and his wife was sitting by his side. His eyes fluttered open and he said, 'You're beautiful.' Then he fell asleep again.
His wife had never heard him say that before, so she stayed by his side. A few minutes later his eyes fluttered open and he said, 'You're cute..' The wife was disappointed because instead of 'beautiful,' it was now 'cute.'
She asked, 'What happened to beautiful?'
The man replied, 'The drugs are wearing off.'____________________________________________________________________________________
Muldoon lived alone in the Irish countryside with only a pet dog for company.. One day the dog died, and Muldoon went to the parish priest and asked, 'Father, my dog is dead... Could ya' be saying' a mass for the poor creature?'
Father Patrick replied, 'I'm afraid not; we cannot have services for an animal in the church.... But there are some Baptists down the lane, and there's no tellin' what they believe. Maybe they'll do something for the creature.'
Muldoon said, 'I'll go right away Father. Do ya' think $5,000 is enough to donate to them for the service?'
Father Patrick exclaimed, 'Sweet Mary, Mother of Jesus! Why didn't ya tell me the dog was Catholic?
_____________________________________________________________________________________

Father O'Malley answers the phone.

'Hello, is this Father O'Malley?'
'It is!'
'This is the IRS. Can you help us?'
'I can!'
'Do you know a Ted Houlihan?'
'I do!'
'Is he a member of your congregation?'
'He is!''Did he donate $10,000 to the church?'
'He will.'_____________________________________________________________________________________
Wife: 'What are you doing?'
Husband: 'Nothing.Wife: 'Nothing...? You've been reading our marriage certificate for an hour.'
Husband: 'I was looking for the expiration date.'
____________________________________________________________________________________
A wife asked her husband: 'What do you like most in me, my pretty face or my sexy body?'He looked at her from head to toe and replied: 'I like your sense of humour!'____________________________________________________________________________________
There once was a religious young woman who went to Confession. Upon entering the confessional, she said, 'Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.'
The priest said, 'Confess your sins and be forgiven.'
The young woman said, 'Last night my boyfriend made passionate love to me seven times.'
The priest thought long and hard and then said, 'Squeeze seven lemons into a glass and then drink the juice.'
The young woman asked, 'Will this cleanse me of my sins?'
The priest said, 'No, but it will wipe that smile off of your face.'

Amazing Race Fantasy Game Week 2


I didn't like how they left us hanging last week with not knowing who would go home!!

Jet and Cord are really having a tough time with that flag challenge.

That challenge took them forever!! Luckily they finally made it!!

Poor Mel has it rough. He is 70!!! This would be hard for anyone, but 70 times as hard for Mel!!

What is up with Jet and Cord?? I am very disappointed in them. Last race they did soooo well. This time around they are horrible!!

Wow this detour is hard. I don't know which one I would pick!!

I love how all the guys are taking their shirts off!!! lol Some aren't bad looking!!

Poor Kent and Vyxsin did not understand the dance part. At least they figured it out!!

Amanda and Kris finished the detour really fast. Good for them.

I love the kangaroo costumes!! That is sooooooo cute!!

I like the shoes. Those are interesting to walk/hop in!!

The looks the players are getting from other people on the streets is hilarious!!

Kent is extremely smart to know the elements like that. I know a couple!!! lol

Good for Zev and Justin coming in first. They get to go to Cancun!!! That sounds awesome!!

Mike and Mel were very nice to pick up Margie's foot cover!!

Jet and Cord are finally getting into the game now. It's about time!!! lol

Ron and Christina annoy me a lot. They are both very negative people!!

Poor Amanda and Kris. That stinks being the first team to be eliminated. I would hate that if it was me!!!

So on that note I need to say goodbye to LB. Thank you for playing!!

See you all next week!!

A New Birth of Freedom: The Visitor Book Review


It has taken centuries to recognize that all humans possess certain unalienable rights. There will come a time when we have to consider whether others deserve those rights as well. That time will come on July 3, 1863.

When a stranger carrying a shiny, metallic valise steps aboard a train carrying Abraham Lincoln home from a two year stint in Congress, everyone stares, wondering about the stranger's odd clothing and strange footwear with the word Nike emblazoned on them.

When the strange man shows up in Lincoln's office at the White house 14 years later, still wearing the same clothes, carrying the same valise and looking not a day older, the president and his staff know something is odd.

But when Edwin Blair opens his valise and projects a 3D image of the Earth on Lincoln's wall, then proceeds to tell a fanciful tale about time traveling aliens preparing to land at Gettysburg on July 3rd, they are sure they've met a lunatic.
Unfortunately for them, they're wrong.

A New Birth of Freedom: The Visitor, is the first book in a new science fiction series that follows the adventures of Edwin Blair and the aliens known as Pests as they chase each other through all the centuries of Earth's past.

A little about the Author-

Biography
I was born in Baltimore,
Son of a nurseryman.

I started to write,
When I was only 10.

I BA-ed at Maryland,
In history and philosophy.
I seminaried in Gettysburg,
To dodge the war.
I doctored at Claremont,
Still dodging the war.
I taught at George Mason,
And El Camino as well.
I wrote on Rock & Roll,
And other stuff too.
I wrote some science fiction,
With time travel themes.
I wrote A New Birth of Freedom,
An alternate history.
I am writing two more,
A trilogy, no less.
I am going to be published!
Son of a gun!!

http://www.bobpielke.com

If you could go back in time, and meet anyone, who would it be?? I thought of this question and what I would answer and I think I would want to meet Elvis!!! I know that sounds silly, but the man was gorgeous, and a great Actor/Singer.

In A New Birth Of Freedom, Edwin Blair gets that exact chance. He goes back in time to meet with Abe Lincoln!!!

Now of course there is an even more interesting twist. Aliens are involved!!

I don't want to give out too many details, I really want you to read this book. Robert Pielke keeps you on your toes, and wanting more.

The ending was a little different then what I thought it would be, but still very well written!!

I am looking forward to the next book!!!

Survivor Fantasy Game Week 2

I am still looking for 3 players if anyone wants to join in!!!

Sorry this is late this week. With the P.O and not feeling well, I didn't get a chance to watch the show till now!!!

Redemption Island scares me. I like some alone time, but that to me means leaving the room and hiding from the kids and husband. I don't think I would like being alone on that island!!

I agree with Rob that Phillip is a tad off!!


"Government Jobs= Stressful!!!" My favorite quote of the show!!!

Why is Phillip hunting crabs with a spear?? What's with the crying??

Russell is funny. Running around trying to find the idol again.

Too bad the hairy Farmer Ralph beat him too it!!!

This immunity challenge sounds like fun!!

Grant is a strong man. He helped get a huge lead.

Ralph kicked butt for Zapatera!!! There's a lot more to that Farmer!!!

Ometepe is a bunch of weaklings!! Phillip did try though.

Matt needs to watch his back. He shouldn't have congratulated the other team like that!!

Poor Ralph. He seems like a really honest, nice guy, and he is stuck with Russell and his dishonesty.

Rob is very angry at Matt. I am glad that Rob is being very secretive with Phillip about the vote though. That is a very, very smart move.

I can't wait to see the redemption island battle. This sounds like fun!!

Phillip just gets weirder and weirder!!!

Kristina needed to play the idol, but now she is wide open for next tribal!!

I hate the blind siding, but it will make for an interesting redemption island match up with Francesca!!

I guess we have to wait until next week again!!!

Amazing Race Fantasy Game Week 1


I like how this season has old favorites. I know most of the teams!!

Wow I like the idea of changing the race a little because they all know what to do. This keeps them on their toes!!

That first question was tough. I would have no clue!!

I would love to go to Australia!!

I really hate to say it, but Ben and I would so be last on that first challenge!!

This has nothing to do with Amazing Race, but there is a commercial that keeps playing for Survivor where Boston Rob says "Government Jobs are stressful." and I just laugh and laugh at it!!! Sorry!!!

That's too bad about the first flight being re-routed for a short time. Hopefully the person who got sick on that flight was OK.

It's so funny how this game can change soooo much because of other people and random problems!!

Jet and Cord don't seem as quick as they were last time.

Good for Gary and Mallory. They are flying today!!

Vyxsin had it rough in the tank. She couldn't find her way out.

Gary and Mallory made if first!! Yeah for them, too bad they have to keep going!!! lol

I like the changes they made to the game. This is funny!!

I don't know if Zev and Justin should have helped the globetrotters like that. That to me is cheating. Then all the teams started doing it.

Jet and Cord are really doing bad this time around.

Ahhhhh of course they cut out of the show before you see if anyone is eliminated. That is annoying!!!

Well no one is gone so far. I have my fingers crossed for you The Holleys!!!

Good luck next week everyone!!

Disney Toy Story 3 On Ice Review


I love Disney!!! They are an awesome company who really treats bloggers well.

I was invited to see Toy Story 3 on ice in Boston this past weekend and I am soooo glad we went!!

Getting to the TD Garden was a little difficult (Boston is all one way streets and tunnels) but we did get there!!!

When we arrived we were ushered to the Premium Club for a great buffet dinner. Laura Spencer (the only one who works for Disney lol) had thought of a great kid friendly menu. Chicken nuggets, hot dogs, fries and fruit. She also planned well for the adults with delicious veggie wraps, Clam Chowder and coconut cookies!! (Yummy!!)

Shortly after dinner, we were visited by two stars of the show, Buzz Lightyear and Sheriff Woody!!!

They were kind enough to take pictures with us!!



After we got our fill of good food and friends, we headed to our seats. We were given a suite!!!




The suite had private seats that overlooked the whole rink, so we saw everything!!


We even had our own bathroom!!


Doug wanted a drink from the bar, but I told him no!! lol



The show started with a visit from some of our favorite Disney friends, Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy.



Then the show started. The story on ice stayed pretty close to the movie, but they added some great extra scenes that fit in really well.




I love troll dolls. I still have a huge collection from when I was much younger!!


Doug sat still and loved the show. He even sang along with some of the songs!!



Ben Jr loved the show too!! He was sooo excited when they would bring out a new character.


It was a full house to see the show that night!!


The Barbie dolls did a really cute number!!




Of course we had to buy some souvenirs (Disney prices) and my sister got herself an alien hat and slushy!!

I got both boys Buzz Lightyear spinners ($22 each)



My Mom wanted a hat too!!



Over all we had an awesome time!!! The show was spectacular, and Disney went all out for us!!!

We did have one minor problem, which had nothing to do with Disney. The TD Garden Center quoted us $20 to park when we arrived (highway robbery by the way, but because we had no clue where else to park we took it) and then when it came time to leave, the bill went up to $32.

Now I think of myself as a reasonable person, but $32 to park for 4 1/2 hrs is INSANE!! So I complained. I was told that it would have been $20 if I had arrived at 5pm. Because I got there at 4:50pm, I was charged $12 extra bucks!!!

I asked to speak to a manager, and the girls in the booth told me there was none. Two other bloggers with me had the same issue, so we all went on the hunt for a manager.

After over a half hour of trying to get some help, we came across a security guard who dropped the total to $15 for each of us (which is the event parking price, not $20) but then went on to tell us that this was a one time favor.

Needless to say, I will NEVER park at the TD Garden Center ever again. Next time we will take the train in.

Please remember that the parking issue, had nothing to do with Disney, and besides the issue, we had an awesome night.

Thank you Laura and Disney!!!
