Funny & interesting

Here are just some random stuff that I thought of today or I did today.

I bent down to take a look at the dates on some packages of meat at the grocery store today. When I started to raise back up I realized that my hair had gotten caught in the "one at a time" plastic bag dispenser. It was fairly easy to get unattached, but I had to take out my barrette and finger comb my hair to get it somewhat normal. There were of course onlookers.

Also in Target. A fun song came on the overhead sound system and I realized that I was singing quite loudly to the music.

I put the milk in the cupboard. I tried to, I should say. The milk was too tall, but I spent a good 10 seconds trying to make it fit!

I read this on Facebook the other day: "I'm currently living in a snow globe that someone keeps shaking!"

I want so badly to like "Everyday with Rachel Ray" magazine. I've purchased 3 or 4 of the magazines and I don't like anything in it. That's just sad. I will quit buying them now, I've learned my lesson. I'm taking the ones that I have purchased (and of course saved!) to my rental condo and if they don't want it, they can take them to the Mayo Clinic waiting room.

Happiness, being a dessert so sweet, May life give you more than you can ever eat.

Click on each horse - Nothing bad will happen - totally G rated. It's funny in a weird way.


We've all heard these things before (when it comes to the state you live in -- but I still find them funny every time!) Here's some of my favorites about my birthplace, Michigan


I was told that this next section was from Jeff Foxworthy - but I have no idea if that is indeed true...but it sounds like him.

If you're proud that your region makes the national news 96 nights each year because Pellston is the coldest spot in the nation, you might live in Michigan.

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from November through March, you might live in Michigan.

If you instinctively walk like a penguin for five months out of the year, you might live in Michigan.

If someone in a store offers you assistance, and they don't work there, you might live in Michigan.

If your dad's suntan stops at a line curving around the middle of his forehead, you might live in Michigan.

If you have worn shorts and a coat at the same time, you might live in Michigan.

If your town has an equal number of bars and churches, you might live in Michigan.

If you have had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you might live in Michigan.

Horses were too funny. And I understood the jokes, but I've never lived in Michigan. LOL
