the rare case of actual laughs within the comics section

Pearls before Swine by Stephan Pastis is one of the few comic strips (in a newspaper) that can actually make me laugh from time to time.

I've noticed though, that the first panel is always where the good stuff is. In fact, I don't even need the rest of the panels.Or maybe I just love setups and am never satisfied with the payoffs.

for the woman of taste

Found in Mom's beauty drawer:
Something about the packaging and the placement of bobby pins really pleased me.

That's it, I've had it with this dump!

Back in January I claimed I would blog everyday. Well, two plus months later and nary a word. Since that proclamation I have moved, severely changed my daily life, and have pretty much been down in the dumps. For about two months I was listening to nothing but three Carpenter's tunes over and over. Let me tell ya, that will really f' you up. Well blog reader, it is time to clear out the fog and get going again. I have a feeling this summer is going to be a good one.

Dear bike thief,
you better hope I never find you.

Crazy kid

While packing up my bookshelf I stumbled across this old gem.

In 1st grade we had to do writing exercises everyday. We would get a prompt and would have to basically fill in some blanks. Normally these consisted of me talking about ice cream, puppies, and monsters.

On one particular day the prompt was to specify a few things you would want one hundred of and one thing you would not want one hundred of.

Everything seems pretty standard here except the "But I would not like a hundred Saddams,"bit is a little strange. Why on earth was I talking about Saddam Hussein in 1st grade? I'm pretty sure I had to ask my teacher how to spell it. I wonder what she was thinking.

Oh man, I crack myself up. There is also a brief mention of General Colin Powell on another page.
