You've Seen The Bestest, Now See The Restest
|Well LA-DI-DA!!! Bestest, Shmestest!!!|
Seriously, congratulations to Lizza on a job well done!
I shouldn't be giving the guys at Pointless Waste Of Time a hard time, though...there is at least one person over there who isn't a complete dolt!
The suspense will be killing you and I both, but don't worry - I'll be back!
See you soon.....

Ode To Self
Anyway, let's scroll on down and take at a look at the results of my epic, sweeping internet meme...come on, have a look-see with me!
Debuting last Sunday, my now-famous internet meme has within it's first week received 786 views, 11 comments, a 4 1/2 star rating, Honors in the Comedy category for #78 Most Discussed for a day, and #66 Top Favorite for a day.
Debuting last Sunday, my now-famous internet meme has generated, or helped contribute to, an average of 74 visits per day this week to my blog - with a high of 101 hits and a low of 37.
So, have I learned anything from my shallow dabble into the glitzy world of internet-meme-production? This, I presume, and only this: I'm not quite sure I really know what a meme is anymore...not quite sure at all.....

|Continuing yesterday's artsy theme: These first thumbnails are some samples of Liquid Sculpture by Martin Waugh. Since I'm not related to this particular artist I did obtain permission to post these..... You can see more of his work here.|

Ba-ba-ba Ba-Barbara Garvin
|I thought I'd try to class up this joint a little by showing some real, live Art (to make up for what my not-looking-so-healthy meme has done). These thumbnails represent just a few of the paintings done by Barbara Garvin. I'm not really much of an artsy person, but since Mrs. Garvin is my aunt I figure I'll run with this theme for a post or two..... |
To be honest, I've never actually met this particular aunt of mine. But, when I was a teenager, my brother and I went to The Country Store in Austin, Texas to look at some of her paintings and when we mentioned that we were Barbara's nephews the owner of the art gallery took us into a locked, private vault to let us view her more expensive paintings in private. Pretty cool, huh? He told us he'd give us a discount on any of her works that we liked - we asked about one of the smaller ones and he said he'd let us have it for like five thousand dollars...so I guess she's definitely somebody in the art world!
Now You're It
I've been tagged by Lizza! I've read through the questions once, so now I'm just going to answer them right off the top of my bald little head without too much thought (or else I'll end up turning this into a major project, as is my wont...).
1a) If you could have dinner with any three people (except Mohammed, Jesus, Martin Luther King Jr, Gandhi) then who would they be? (don't say Mother Teresa either)
1b) What would you eat? either steak or mexican food
2) If you could force everyone in the world to read one book (except for the Quran or the Bible) what would it be?
3) Is there a TV show you'd cancel dinner with your best friend for, if you knew that a new episode was going to be aired once only? What is it?
4) If someone told you that you could only have one hobby/favorite pasttime for the rest of your life, what would you pick?
5) Which song is on the soundtrack of your life?
6) How old were you when you had your first crush? Who was it?
7) If you could read the thoughts of any one person, who would it be?
8) If you could block your thoughts from only one person, who would it be?
9) If you could choose between life on earth forever or going to heaven, which would you choose?
10) When you die, what will your contribution to the world be?

2 inFURiating 2 BEAR
leftovers - human remains after bear has feeding frenzy
AMERICA: The HIBER-NATION
Do pictures like this upset you? Well, they should. We, as a nation, should be FURious over things like this happening to our fellow man. It's time for all of us to come out of hibernation and join the GRRReat men like Bear Slayer in putting a stop to the Number One (#1) Threat Facing America - killer bears.
Sure, there are those nay-sayers (or rather - nay-slayers) who oppose this movement, but mankind must begin to take this matter more seriously or face grrrave consequenses. Visit Bear Slayer's site for yourself and help support this movement.
Still not taking taking this seriously? Still think this is all just a big lie? A joke, even? Consider the following ancient manuscripts that were recently uncovered in a North American cave:
Is it mere coincidence that these ancient formulas were discovered inside a cave - common ground for the man-eating-killing bear? Notice the complete absence of the term ursine in today's mathematical formulae - why has the terminology been changed? Is it to lull mankind into a sense of complacence? Note the frequent use of the bear-friendly spelling of terms such as TriGRRnometric, deFURnition and trianGRRR. Isn't it odd that the formula for urs (ursine) is OPPOSITE SIDE over MANKIND; i.e. our OPPOSING SIDE (bears) reigning OVER MANKIND (us)? So it seems that even though a spelling bee may be smarter than a talking dog, a mathematically-inclined-scientifically-minded-man-eating-killing bear trumps them both.....
Do you not realize that this is proof that bear's were once our master? Do you not now see the dire need to eliminate this furmidable foe? How much longer can mankind bear this threat? This will be no pic-a-nic, but we must stop the bears before it's too late. We did it to the Dodo Birds, we can do it to The Bears.....
I am posting this video of Buzz Aldrin punching a guy mostly so I can tell you the whole story behind it:
This was filmed during the making of a documentary by the guy who got clocked by Mr. Aldrin. Apparently, this man had been trying to get Buzz Aldrin to place his hand on a Holy Bible and swear that he did indeed really walk on the moon; Mr. Aldrin absolutely refused to do so - for years and years. This, of course, led the younger man to believe that this was more proof that the entire moon landing was a lie. What was happening before the 20 seconds in the video is the man attempting his usual routine of trying to get Mr. Aldrin to say he'd walked on the moon while placing his hand on a Bible. That's why he was calling him a liar, etc. I'm not posting about the correctness of either man's behavior - I just always found it interesting that Mr. Aldrin so vehemently refused to do so..... After he gets hit, the young man just turns and walks away, asking the cameraman if he "got that on film." Out of this world, huh?
This is all written to the best of my recollection, so I apologize if it's not completely accurate & please don't form any of your own opinions based solely on this post.

The Great Template Debate
I will have to do a little tweaking, of course, and re-link all of my old sites, but let me know what you think of the brand new same old me! hahaahaaa
