I had no idea what to do with this one… Sure I had plenty of offense political thins to say, but I did not want togo there!

So I Googled and truly enjoyed this site- 101 Really Stupid Questions.

Here are my favorites…

  1. If corn oil is made from corn and vegetable oil is made from vegetables.
  2. If an orange is orange, why isn’t a lime called a green or a lemon called a yellow?
  3. If the #2 pencil is the most popular, why’s it still #2?
  4. Why do they sterilize needles for lethal injections?
  5. If an ambulance is on its way to save someone, and it runs someone over, does it stop to help them?
  6. How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?
  7. Who closes the door when the bus driver gets off?
  8. Why is there a light in the fridge but not in the freezer?
  9. If you choke a Smurf, what color does it turn?
  10. Why do toasters always have a setting on them which burns your toast to a horrible crisp no one would eat?

And my all-time favorite! …. …. …

If you throw a cat out of the car window, does it become kitty litter?

(Yes, I know it’s in poor taste… And I am not sure what it says about me if this one is my favorite? )

 FYI: There are many websites that say John Wayne NEVER said that quote?

Classical music is often soothing… great background music for a dinner or to have on while studying for a test.

NOT this one!

No Remorse: Evil Personified


No Remorse: Evil Personified

Don’t you love to hate villains in movies?

One of my favorite actor’s to hate is Antony Hopkins. He was spectacular as Hannibal Lector!

A man so easy to understand it is terrifying. Even a an inmate… no remorse. I’ll help you solve the crime so that I can bask in the glory of the crime.

I do not usually enjoy horror-drama movies, but if it stars Anthony Hopkins… I will always give it a try.

Ambition: Biting Off More than You Can Chew


Do you make New Year’s Resolutions?

According to researchers (so you know it must be true), most people’s resolutions only last until January 15th. That means that you only have to keep your resolution SIX MORE DAYS and you will be an above average person!

I don’t make a New Year’s Resolution per se, I make resolutions every 15 days. Every 15 days I do a goal check and assess and reassess what I wanted to do, how did achieving the goal go, and do I still want to work toward this goal.

By doing this, I keep my resolutions very short and very small.

I think that this gives me a better chance at being successful.

Stymied by the Snows


Winter has finally arrived.

Just three days ago it was 53 degrees and short-sleeve weather.

Today, it is 31 degrees with high winds. This gives my small town the chill factor of 14 degrees.

On top of that, it calls for snow.

Now don’t get me wrong… I love to see it snow.

I love to have snow days from work.

I love the see the house just across the street disappear in blizzard winds.

But, I hate to shovel snow… And I don’t drive in the snow.

Even though we are only to get maybe two inches of snow this from session of snowfalls…

Anytime I think if snow…

I see this picture.

Not for the weak of heart …

  • Will Graham – FBI Profiler
  • Hannibal Lector – Cannibalistic Serial Killer
  • The Tooth Fairy – An Avid Admirer of Lecter

The Chronological Order of the Movies 

  • Hannibal Rising
  • Red Dragon or Manhunter
  • The Silence of the Lambs
  • Hannibal

Lead Profiler Will Graham and the FBI are in a catch-me-if-you-can game with the serial killers.

Sometimes the hardest killer to catch is the one already in prison?

I haven’t read the books… but soon. (Probably I’ll read them at late night during the Australian Open. The Open begins at 3am each morning- so I won’t be sleeping at night much anyway?)
