You know how hard I was laughing this morning when I visited the Yahoo homepage and found this story and video!

So, I headed over to Facebook to see if I couldn't find a Fan Page and sure enough here ya go Farmville Addicts for people who are looking to hook up with other farmers. But if you are ready to give up your farm and get a life... still on Facebook of course you can join the Farmville Addicts 12 Step Program group.

You Say It Best When You Say Nothing At All


Today's Top News

As I predicted yesterday Obama's State of The Union was the big news of the day.  Most people were totally shocked that he fired up his campaign bus and ran over the Supreme Court Judges with it. 

Some of the comments posted about the SOTU address I can't repeat as they aren't mom approved... not as bad as sucking on a bar of Lifeboy soap like Ralph had to do in the movie A Christmas Story, but bad enough.

Just to be fair I'll add that, I did one of those things on Facebook a couple of months ago that gives a percentage for your friends like how many are single or married.  I found back then that my friends are a little over 60% Republican.  So, I can't really say what I read is fair and balanced like say Fox News.  I will say though that my friends that are Democrats have quieted and have for the most part stopped defending Obama.  

Today's Fun Stuff

Have you seen the Geico commercial where the old man has that catchy funny ringtone, ringity-ding-ding-dingy-dong, on his cell phone? Today someone posted a link and you can go download the ringtone for free.   If you haven't seen the commercial, it's here on the same page you can get the ringtone from.

Today's Fun Status 

Please put this on your status if you know someone (or are related to someone) who has been eaten by dragons. My wish for 2010 is that people will understand, that being eaten by dragons is not something to be ashamed of. Dragons are nearly unstoppable and are truly terrifying. 93% won't copy and paste this... They have been eaten by dragons.

On a More Serious Note...

I missed posting here yesterday due to a family life threatening emergency.  From this I learned that prayer can spread like wild fire on Facebook. I told one friend of the problem, she posted it on her FB page and before I knew it mutual friends were praying, their friends were praying and their friends.  It was an incredible and heart  touching gesture.  Now today the person that was held in prayer is doing excellent given the circumstances.

On a lighter note... after the State of The Union address by Obama and the rebuttal by Gov. McDonnell, I'm sure I'll have plenty of fodder tomorrow.

Reading is Fundamental - This is Your Brain on Cupcakes

Today's Top News

I learned that President Obama took his teleprompter to an elementary school to do a speech... proving that you don't need to know what to say as long as it's all typed up for you.

Today's Interesting Link

I'm not so sure about brain slug cupcakes. I'm not sure why they were a big hit today around Facebook. I'm sure they are yummy though even if I would feel the need to close my eyes before eating one or maybe to do that sorta look off to the side thing!

You can read more about the brain slug cupcakes here.

Today's Word of The Day

I've told you before that Facebook can be educational.  I learned a new word today.  It's something I've done, probably something you've done and what I can whip out and call my kids on in the future sometime when I think they are doing it.  If I do call my kids this then I'm going to make them go to the trouble of looking it up rather than just tell them.

So, here it is....

Main Entry: malinger

Function: intransitive verb
Inflected Form(s): ma·lin·gered; ma·lin·ger·ing
Etymology: French malingre sickly
Date: 1820
: to pretend or exaggerate incapacity or illness (as to avoid duty or work)

My Purple Turned Blue

Today's News Story

The Colts and the Saints are going to the Superbowl.  Tons of people on my Facebook were for the Saints but I was good and, remembering what my mother told me, didn't post anything rude at all.

I'm only half happy about that because I really wanted my "old man" Favre to go!  I'm happy that Peyton and Colts are going though.  That is who I'll be going for! My husband had asked what I would do if it had been the Vikings and the Colts and I told him I could watch the game in peace knowing someone I like would win! Now I have to fully commit to one side.

Today's Status

*WARNING* You will probably not find this funny if you are a Democrat.

HOW TO START EACH DAY WITH A POSITIVE OUTLOOK 1. Open a new file in your computer. 2. Name it 'Barack Obama'. 3. Send it to the Recycle Bin. 4. Empty the Recycle Bin. 5. Your PC will ask you: 'Do you really want to get rid of 'Barack Obama?' 6. Firmly Click 'Yes.' 7. Feel better? GOOD! - Tomorrow we'll do Nancy...

I admit today's post is short and not so sweet... I have to go pout about Brett some more!  Maybe tomorrow I'll wake up with a better attitude.

It's All About The Animals

Today's News Story

Honestly there was nothing worth repeating that was posted today... slow news day on Facebook for sure and I don't care what level you are up to in Farmville, it's just not news worthy!

Today's Great Status
.... tried to sing like Snow White... must not be doing it right though, cause no animals came to help clean house!

I've never tried that one but I'm guessing the animals would run for the hills if I did it.  My singing is so bad I could probably get a gig exterminating mice or something from homes.

I had a great title for this but it sounded too bad!

Today's News

We talked about the terrible rain and flooding out in California yesterday.  Today even in bad times something can come along and warm a person's heart.  Here is a great video of a dog being rescued today.

Today's Friend Request

I was thinking the other day that I should get more friends... more friends = more material right?  Well, some guy sent me a friend request.  I went to check out his profile see if I wanted to add him... ahh big old hell no there.  Guys, guys, guys, here is some free advice.  You aren't going to get woman by posting on your profile that you are a fun, lovable, open minded, really horny kinda guy.  C'mon do you really want to be rejected or are you hoping for some chick to say WOW! you know I have been searching all my life for a  fun, lovable, open minded, really horny kinda guy.

Dorky Guys Can Be Players Too!

Today's News

I only saw two news stories on Facebook today. The first was about the rain in California and I thought doesn't that state have enough to worry about?

The other story was something about John Edwards the Cheater so I didn't even bother reading it.  He's an idiot, enough said.

Today's Recipe

Chocolate! Yup that got my attention too.  But it's not to eat it's to wear... ahh no not like that!  It's a facial thing.  Either way they have a Chocolate Mask and lots of other great spa type recipes here.

Granny you're what???

Today's News

"I look at the numbers and I`m worried. I`m worried about this government committing itself to so many entitlement programs and committing itself to such a level of taxation that support those entitlement programs." - Chris Matthews

Sad Dems, Silly Drama, and Sexy Dames

Today's Top News

Look's like Scott Brown, candidate for the U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts is ahead and I've heard that some pundits are calling it for him. It's shocking to see a true blue state vote red especially after President Obama just went there to push the vote.  It's always interesting to see the pendulum swing.  

Today's Drama

I think everyone should be wary of what they post to their wall.  It's all "out there" even if it seems private.  Today someone I know was talking smack about their employer which isn't smart or professional. It's all been deleted thank goodness.  But I saw it and who know who else did... we'll have to see how that one unfolds. They say don't drink and drive and I'd like to add don't get pissed and post, both of those are great advice kids!

Free Cell Phones and Workin' The Farm

Today's Top News

Wireless Welfare - Wow, did you know now when you go to pick up the food stamps, you also get a cell phone!  In this article,

 I found that over 20 states have this program in place with more to follow. The United States spent almost $819 million on this program and of course you know the price tag is going to get bigger!

This story also reminds me that you can also use your government issue cell phone to take a pic of our First Lady on the days she goes to work at the soup kitchen.

Today Fan Page

The above article leads me to the fan page of the day,  Making Drug Tests required to get Welfare  That way when you get your cell phone you can deal just not use.

Today's Well That's Interesting...

Now most of the friends I have had the day off of work.  Seems like I would get some interesting stories as to what they did on their day off.  Well I can tell you that it looks as if the majority of them squandered their day off playing farm, cafe and some fishy aquarium thing. I guess though it keeps them out of trouble I haven't heard of anyone ever going to jail for playing Farmville.

Not Much!

Not much is what I learned today! This post will be rather short and sweet.  I didn't have much Facebook time today.  It does happen not too often but it happens. 

Today's Top News

I don't have a link or a story for it but there is an eerie silent mourning among my friends as the Cowboys lost to the Vikings.  Now tomorrow people will be posting the typical 'I hate Monday' posts.  This always happens after a Cowboys loss around here.  A phenomenon that my husband refers to as Black Monday.  Then slowly and surely they will come out of it and start with the 'they are still my team' and talking about next year and their road to the Super Bowl. I'm sure Charger fans are feeling the same way as well.

BTW, does anyone that reads this think it's wildly silly that they are having the Pro Bowl before the Super Bowl?

Today's Great Status

Mississippi is Easier to Spell

Today's Top News

There was just no big news going around on Facebook today. Perhaps I should have waited until later tonight to see if anyone would get drunk and post something ridiculous.

To tell you how slow it was, it was pretty much talk of football and some about the senate race between Brown and Coakley in Massachusetts (Did I spell Massachusetts right? Maybe I should ask Martha Coakley.) What can I say I just can't always count on my friends to be entertaining and informative.

Today's Video

I've warned you before most of my peeps are in Texas so here is the video going around today.

I'm whispering now when I tell you that I'm going to be secretly cheering for the Vikings.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, don't cut your hair while on meds.

That one was not on my list of what my mom told me to never do but I guess I'll add it. I am curious yet afraid to ask if she cut her own hair or went somewhere and made some wild and crazy request.  I may never know.

Fur, Fees, and Feet PJ's

Today's Top News

The fur was flyng today after last nights Texas gubernatorial debate with Debra Medina, Kay Baily Hutchinson, and Rick Perry. Had the debate not been virtual I would have been hiding under my desk. I've heard it said before that politics was a bloodsport.  I'm proud though that while my friends are strong in their beliefs that they are keeping it a clean fight, no name calling... well so far anyway!

I like that my kids call it a Goober debate!

Today's Really?

Soap Box Time - I saw that someone posted on their status a rant, slamming the banks because of processing fees on credit card charges for Haiti. I have to say that while I think the banks could give a discount. It's their business, they have rent, electric bills, office supplies (which some employees use at work and home! LOL) and employees, etc. So, when the people that beATCH that other people (the banks in this case) should give up their money they need to give up theirs first. I guess they think working for free is ok. I don't think anyone should be forced into a charitable act.

Today's Top News

I learned today that the White House's veggies are as fake as Kellie Pickler's....

Well at any rate, the produce picked from Michelle Obama's garden for the Iron Chef show were not really from the garden at all. They used "stunt veggies".

All the world's a stage, and all the taters and broccoli are merely players.

Sad, Really Sad and Heart Broken

Today's Top News

Haiti! You'd have to pretty much not have a pulse to miss that one.  It's so very sad. They need our prayers and money. I learned on Facebook that you can donate to the American Red Cross by texting Haiti to 90999 and $10 will be added to your cell phone bill to help the relief efforts in that country. I did confirm this and you can check out here

Today's Facebook Fun

On a lighter note, someone, and only God knows who, on Facebook decided it was retro week.  They put their status as, GOING RETRO....WAY BACK WEEK! Post a pic of yourself when you were younger & see how adorable and funny we all were! Copy & paste!  Then they post a picture of when they were younger.  Sadly,  given the average age of my friends it looks more like mullet week. I might just have nightmares and I've already caught myself humming Achy Breaky Heart!  It just makes me want to put on some mom jeans and go line dancing.
*Disclaimer - I don't know the guy in that picture, he's just some random dude I found on the internet.

Now because you are my guest here I thought I'd save you the trouble of going to find good ol' Billy Ray.  No need to thank me really, it's my pleasure.

Marijuana, Highs & Lows

Today's Top News

Marijuana was the talk of the news today.  There were lots of stories about California wanting to make pot legal. Part of the reasoning behind it is to raise revenue since the state is like ahh, broke! Which is a technical term by the way. My conclusion is that if it didn't help the state to raise money at least no one would care.

On that same subject, I also learned that way back when in the late 1800's marijuana was prescribed for asthma. There is a nifty bit o' trivia for you!

Today's Little Excitement

I see small business websites all the time touting that if you join their Facebook fan page just by being a fan you can win stuff.  When I run across those sites I'm like what the heck, why not. I'm not the luckiest person ever but I'll give it a shot.  Well, I won, I won, I won! I felt like the dad in A Christmas Story movie.  Today I won a vintage looking jeweled ring from  She has some really sparkly cool jewelry so check out her store. This was my high point on Facebook for sure.

Today's Event Invitation

I was invited today to attend a weight loss seminar. Which brought me down a notch after my big win. It just opened a whole can of worms and reminded me of the five stages of grief.  Denial - I'm not fat! Anger - Who the hell do they think they are? am I really that fat? Bargaining - Well, maybe I could just change my profile picture and nobody would think I was fat. Depression - Why bother, it's no use, I'll just go get a hot fudge sundae. Acceptance - I guess the universe is trying to tell me something and I should just go with it.

Cheers & Jeers, Jargon & Jackets

Today's Top News Story

Cheers of joy and grumblings of loathing came up all over today as a story broke that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin signed on to be a contributor on the Fox News Channel.  Fox News reported that Tuesday at 8p ET is her first official day on the job.

Today's Word of The Day

I saw a new word today that I didn't know.  It was used on a comment about the above story.  The comment said that Palin made liberals apoplectic.

Main Entry: ap·o·plec·tic
Pronunciation: \ˌa-pə-ˈplek-tik\
Function: adjective
Etymology: French or Late Latin; French apoplectique, from Late Latin apoplecticus, from Greek apoplēktikos, from apoplēssein
Date: 1611

1 : of, relating to, or causing stroke
2 : affected with, inclined to, or showing symptoms of stroke
3 : of a kind to cause or apparently cause stroke ; also : greatly excited or angered

Since I started this blog just less than a week ago I've added two new words to my vocabulary. The cool thing is that I can use them both in one single sentence. The assclowns in D.C. are making people all over the country feel apoplectic. I know you'll want to use that witty piece of work as your own during your next political conversation around the water cooler so, please feel free.

Stupid is as stupid does, Forrest's mom knew what she was talking about!

Today's Top News

There is a fine line between bravery and stupidity. In today's top news story I learned that protesting the wearing of leather at a biker rally might not be the smartest thing in the world to do. One of the protest organizers was quoted in the article, “Something just went wrong,” said a still visibly shaken organizer of the protest. “Something just went horribly, horribly, wrong.”  I know you are wondering about the rest of this story so just click here to read all about it.

Today's That Really Sucks

In the wee hours of the morning, one of the couples I know posted that they had just returned from their tropical vacation to below freezing temperatures here in Dallas. That does suck but it gets better. The airlines had lost their luggage. Ok, that sucks too but, I know you're thinking, so what, big deal! I present you now with the pièce de résistance, their car keys were packed in the lost luggage!

I know they made it home a couple of hours later.  There was no explanation of how though. I do wonder which one of them did it and if there are some frosty feelings from the event going on at their house today or if they are laughing about it.

This incident serves as a reminder, always put your most important things in your carry on bag.

There's no Facebook in our new Facebook fan page!

I couldn't see having a blog like this without having our very own fan page on Facebook.  Creating this page taught me something else new today; I learned you can't have a fan page with the word Facebook in it.  So, our fan page is just simply What I learned today!

Trash Talkin', Texas Pride, & An Expanding Vocabulary

Todays' History Lesson

Margaret Sanger, Founder of Planned Parenthood - I was surprised to learn about this woman.  I was truly blown away by some of the statements she made about the human race in general.  Sure, we are all guilty of thinking we are better than others at times but old Margaret took her beliefs to an extreme.  I was in awe of, what I would call, her twisted mindset.  If you'd like to learn more about Ms. Sanger click here.

Today's Big Theme

Like I said in my previous post the majority of my friends live in Dallas or have at some point.  There is all kind of talk about the Cowboys' first playoff game.  There are doubters that are worried about the one and done of the past.  But then there are those hard core Kool-aid drinking fans that are trash talking it up!  The only way I truly care about the outcome of this game is what my husband's mood will be tomorrow. :oP

Today's Fan Page

The most popular fan page among my friends today was I bet Texas can get 1 million fans before any other state They are more than half way there with 551,015  I'm not really sure if that is great though as I do have somewhat of a life and I wasn't about to check our other 49 states.

Today's Word of The Day

I admit today wasn't the most interesting day on Facebook.  But the word of the day had to be the bestest! On the comments on a quiz about the Health Care Debate I saw someone refer to the current legislature and administration as a bunch of ASSCLOWNS!  LOL This will now be one of my new favorite words. See I'm expanding my vocabulary, Facebook is educational.

So, why is he the hero of the day? Colt simply stated, "I always give God the glory. I never question why things happen the way they do. God is in control of my life. And I know that if nothing else, I'm standing on the Rock."  He sounds like a very honorable young man!

'Terrorism' Exists Only in Your Mind - Great story addressing what we've all been thinking about the underwear bomber.  Not just that it could have been awful and devastating but the other part about being crazy enough to blow yourself and other people up but omg being crazy enough to put that stuff in your undies.  I mean really if the guy had been successful did they tell him his package would be safe when he got to the other side? Otherwise he wouldn't have had much use for the virgins.

Today's Odd Event

Apparently today was the day for posting about one's underwear.  I found out my friends have a plethora of colors, stripes, polka dots, plaids and some don't have any at all.  I just don't know if I needed to know all of that. I admit though that some brought more pleasant visuals than others.
