This is a funny shared on one of the soap forums I'm on...I HAD to share it!



In ancient Israel it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a young wife by the name of Dorothy.

And Dot Com was a comely woman, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she was often called Amazon Dot Com.

And she said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why dost thou travel so far from town to town with thy goods when thou canst trade without ever leaving thy tent?"

And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How, dear?"

And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying what you have for sale, and they will reply telling you who hath the best price. The sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)."

Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. And the drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever having to move from his tent.

To prevent neighbouring countries from overhearing what the drums were saying, Dot devised a system that only she and the drummers knew. It was known as Must Send Drum Over Sound (MSDOS), and she also developed a language to transmit ideas and pictures - Hebrew To The People (HTTP).

And the young men did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Sybarites, or NERDS.
And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real riches were going to that enterprising drum dealer, Brother William of Gates, who bought off every drum maker in the land. Indeed he did insist on drums to be made that would work only with Brother Gates' drumheads and drumsticks.

And Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others."
And Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or eBay as it came to be known.

He said, "We need a name that reflects what we are."

And Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators". "YAHOO," said Abraham.
And because it was Dot's idea, they named it YAHOO Dot Com.

Abraham's cousin, Joshua, being the young Gregarious Energetic Educated Kid (GEEK) that he was, soon started using Dot's drums to locate things around the countryside.
It soon became known as God's Own Official Guide to Locating Everything (GOOGLE).

That is how it all began. And that's the truth.



In other news, I turned the heel of sock #2.5, and am working my way down the gussets. My wrist is TOAST, but I don't care - I WILL get this sock finished! Maybe tomorrow on our field trip, maybe not - but the end is near! (And, for the record - an entire sock leg, + flap + heel turn, in *1* day. That's a personal record! I...won't be repeating it (often), but it's nice to know that I CAN do it!)

Anna posted this, and invited folks to play. Since I'm brain-dead this morning, I figured it'd be an easy post. :lol: Thank you, Anna!

Rules:
1. Thank the award giver and link them in your post.
2. Share seven things about yourself.
3. Pass this award along to blogs that you enjoy reading.
4. Contact your chosen bloggers, let them know, and post the award picture.

1. Crafts: I LOVE doing creative-type stuff, especially if I can save money. My countertops, for example - they look like real stone, but it's just cheap paint (and some not-quite-so-cheap epoxy, now, but that's because I am PARANOID about my crafty-stuff getting ruined.) I do NOT like the mess being crafty makes, however - my kitchen is once again all empty, and the stuff is piled on my table. And will be until Wednesday (we want to give the epoxy ample time to cure)

2. Cleaning: not so much. I mean, I do enough to keep the Health department away, but I am NOT the type to have so-clean-you-can-eat-off-of-them floors. Dust? HA! I have 4 large dogs that come in and out at will, plus horses, chickens, goats and kids. We regularly have dust-storms in the house....why bother? Unfortunately, SG is kinda anal about cleanliness - it drives both of us batty. :lol: We've reached an agreement - I'll keep the place tidy, but for parties and stuff he'll chip in and we'll get it up to HIS level of cleanliness (and it's back to the normal 5 minutes after people leave. I'm telling you, he's fighting a losing battle here.)

3. Books: I'll read ANYTHING. Literature, pulp novels, bodice-rippers - don't care. If it's written, I'll read it at least once. It helps that I am a natural-born speed reader - I read in paragraphs, not sentences or words. Seriously - in 5th grade they brought in a speed-reading teacher. First day, she tested us - we had (I think - it's been a LONG time since 5th grade!) 5 minutes to read a short short story, then we were tested on comprehension. I read it in under 2 minutes (timed!) and got 100 on the test. I spent the rest of the course devouring whatever books I brought from home - the teacher said she didn't want me to slow down because of the course. (It taught the kids to read in sentences instead of word-by-word.) It upsets SG, because he is a SLOW reader...but I can't help it. I try not to show it off to him (but it's hard. He was reading "Reven", a SW Old Republic novel. He'd gone into Home Depot for something, and I stayed in the car..but I had nothing to read. So I picked up his book. By the time he came out (about..30 minutes?) I was 1/3 done...I finished it up while we were at lunch. It took him 3 weeks to read it...:sigh:) I try to do some Bible reading on a daily basis, but after that, it's anything goes. (OK, within reason. I will NOT finish something that gets too graphic. Jean Auel's Clan series (the first 3..the last ones weren't worth the money, IMO) were at the very end of my limit - it's only because I was interested in the faux-history she'd developed that I kept going.)

4. Video games: I suck at them. I try to play with Himself, but he runs rings around my character, and gets all the points, while I'm trying to move from the starting point. l like playing the Lego SW games......because I can at least get the mini-fig to MOVE, but other games? Forget it. I prefer board games - especially Risk, or Monopoly (although I CAN play the PS3 version of Monopoly - because all you do is throw dice. The game does the rest. :lol:) I also actually prefer to play on the computer, because I can sort of understand the commands. The PS3? I have NO clue. Himself is sitting next to me, racking up points, and yelling out instructions "The red square! Hit the red square to jump! Now move the toggle forward - no, the other forward! And hit the green triangle and the blue circle while rotating the toggle back and forth - here, let me help you." :lol:

5. Music: There is almost always music running thru my head. Folk songs/Classical/Pop - SOMETHING. Sometimes I'll actually have music on - but the kids have their own tastes in music (and...I can't stand techno. They LOVE the Portal soundtrack....and it's like nails on a chalkboard to me. It's why we got them their own iPod shuffles this year - I didn't want to have to listen to their stuff. :lol:) I LOVE playing music, too - but violin hurts most of the time, so....I listen. I like Ren Faire-type folk songs, but I'm currently rocking to Debbi Friedman. Eclectic, that's me! :grin:

6. Animals: I am an animal lover. Not a hoarder - but I seem to collect them. Horses are my first love - I can't envision a time that I won't have at least 1 horse around. There's just something about them.......I like my goats, but it's not quite the same. A goat won't keep your secrets like a horse will. And they're NOISY. (We have Nubians, the loud-mouths of the Caprine species. :lol:) Chickens.....I confess, I do NOT like them. Herself LOVES them, though, so - even if we didn't get food from them - we'd keep them. I like dogs - but mostly giant ones. You get more intimidation for your food bill than you do with smaller dogs - and big dogs are generally nicer to have around (I'm thinking about yippy little dogs, here...:ugh:)

7. Fiber: It's all about the wool. And silk. And cashmere. I LOVE turning fluff-balls into yarn that I can then turn into items of clothing. Silk is my hands-down favorite fiber, but I prefer working with wool and cashmere the most (silk is hard on my hands. LOVE how it works up...but it hurts.) Cotton..I'm working on. I love sewing and weaving with it, but I kinda need more practice spinning it. Weaving is my first love - it was my gateway into the fiber world. Knitting is my every-day habit - it hurts, too, but...I don't leave home without a sock in progress. Or a sweater.

I'm adding a number 8, too:

8. Dress-up: I've never outgrown my love of playing dress-up. It's why we do the Highland Games; I can dress-up to my heart's content there without being looked at funny. I LOVE the Ren-wench look (bodice, 2 skirts thing), but I try to be "classy" about it: I don't show a ton of skin, and I don't dress "sexy". Yes, I'm in a tight-laced bodice. Yes, my "girls" are well-supported and you see a little skin. I do NOT do the "been around the fair a few too many times" look - everything is covered, and I'm not frowsy. (I can't explain it better than that. You either "get it", or you don't. Think....modest knight's daughter vs. bar maid. A lot of women think the bar maid look is "it"...and they look, well......cheap. If the "girls" are wandering around the reservation, that's cheap.) I usually have on a ton of clothing - chemise, bodice, 2 skirts (1 tucked up to show the under-skirt), bloomers, and boots, with my plaid belted around me, and a cloak on top if it's cold. Hard to be sexy with that many layers on! :lol: (I do show my bloomers. When I spin, I usually end up with 1 leg tossed over the arm of my chair, and the rest of me lounging back. I HAVE to wear bloomers - the more wildly patterned the better! - to keep my modesty. :lol: The favorites among my clan are my flying pigs and my "McBuffet" ones with the psychedelic flamingos.)

I won't tag anyone. If you wanna, go ahead. :lol:

Anna posted this, and it looked fun. I'm still going to do a year-end wrap-up, though, going subject by subject thru what worked, what didn't, and what I had to tweak. Still, this is fun:


1. One homeschooling book you have enjoyed

The Well-Trained Mind by Susan Wise Bauer. I had NO idea that there were so many "schools" of homeschool; Classical struck a chord with me. Granted, I'm not as.....intense as TWTM lays out, but I use it as a springboard, and to make sure I'm covering everything the kids need to know.

2. One resource you wouldn't be without

Honestly? SG's old iPad. I never thought it would be used as much as it is - it's just so darn portable! It's used to play our Latin lesson, I use it during Art Appreciation to show the paintings we're studying, I use it for our Sarah and David Hebrew; we use the Apps to learn the States (Stack the States), World Geography (Stack the Countries), the Presidents (Presidents vs. Aliens); we watch NOVA episodes on it....it's just constantly in use during school. Yes, we could use the laptop - but it's not as portable (you can't really snuggle up on the couch to watch NOVA on the laptop. :lol:)

3. One resource you wish you had never bought

Hmmm. Christiana Latina (or whatever the name is) - it's Latin based on the Catholic Mass. Waste of $5, because I just could NOT make it work for us. I've been pretty lucky - I research stuff to *death* before I decide to buy, and I try to buy used whenever possible.

We had a miss with Navigating the Social World for Herself - it's designed for a group-type session, not really one-on-one. I'm trying to figure out how to tweak it to work for us....but I'm not upset I bought it.

4. One resource you enjoyed last year

We've enjoyed Getting Started with Latin. One of the sentences he uses (over and over!) translates to "we are farmers"...and both kids start in on the Farmer's Insurance jingle. :lol: We also enjoyed Shalom Sesame - although both kids will deny that profusely.

5. One resource you will be using next year

Same stuff we're using now - Apologia for Science, Singapore for Math...we'll be moving into Minimus for Latin in a month or so (Minimus is a mouse living in Vindolandia (Roman-controlled Britian); it's a comic-book in Latin with History woven in. It looks FANTASTIC - and I was able to score the teacher's manual for it (and its sequel), so we'll be doing the crafts and worksheets with it.

6. One resource you would like to buy

The Writer's Jungle by BraveWriter. It's for *me*, to help me teach the kids to write better. It's on sale right now at Homeschool Buyer's Co-op; I'm hoping it stays on sale until I can buy it next week. I also want to get some of their Literature Analysis units....we'll see.

7. One resource you wish existed

Hoo-boy. I dunno - I'm happy with what I have. Maybe something to help Himself actually make decisions. Give him more than 2 choices, and he's lost....

8. One homeschool catalogue you enjoy reading

I don't get any homeschool catalogues. I can't afford to buy stuff new, so a catalogue wouldn't do me any good.

9. One homeschooling website you use regularly

Besides Anna's and Ali's? :lol: The
Well-Trained Mind forums
. It's where I find out about various curriculums/books; I read what they say about them, then go hunting for them on eBay/half.com/Amazon/etc. They've saved me lots of $$$, and TIME. I've found websites with lesson plans on them, which has helped me tremendously (I can't plan as well as some people....I tend to either go too light, or bury the kids under too much reading. :sigh: Need to work on that!). It's cost me some, too - I just bought 5 more books to supplement our HS Latin (Wheelock's; I found it and the workbook at Half Price, then I found a lesson plan that uses them AND some supplements. :sigh: Still, I want the kids to be comfortable with Latin, so....I spent $40 and got all the supplements. They look interesting, at least - and *I* will be learning, too, so it's a good thing!), but overall, it's saved me a lot of headaches. Thanks to them, I knew which curriculum I wanted to avoid - and I don't believe in curriculum-hopping, the way some of those moms do. :shakes head: I needed to feel that it would work for us, from day 1. So far, we've done well.

10. Tag six other homeschoolers… in no particular order!

Nope. For one, I don't know 6 (or don't think I do. :grin:) And 2....if you wanna do it, do it. Just let me know - I wanna read! :lol:

Ditto #87- we'll be sending the excess kids to "freezer camp". The "snow fort"....I've built one - sorta - but we really don't get enough snow here to call it a "fort". :grin:

I tag anyone who wants to do this . . . post it on your blog!

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In August I helped [livejournal.com profile] jen_in_mexico hide a body (-173 points). In October I signed my organ donor card (28 points). Last month I pulled over and changed [livejournal.com profile] pyratelady's flat tire (15 points). Last Sunday I punched [livejournal.com profile] mariora in the arm (-10 points). Last Monday I ruled Canada as a kind and benevolent dictator (700 points).

Overall, I've been nice (560 points). For Christmas I deserve a pony!

Sincerely,
fiberaddict

This Week: GAMES OF CHANCE
(Click here for link)

Reminder: Zero percent means an impossibility, while a hundred percent means an absolute certainty!

1. Given as a percentage, approximately what are the chances that there is a french fry somewhere in your car? If you do not own a car, what are the chances that there is a french fry somewhere in the car you most frequently ride in?

0%. NO ONE eats in my truck - on the trip, the kids were under pain of death to keep all snacks in the bag, and to put ALL trash in the designated sack. They did, and the truck is still pretty clean inside.

2. Given as a percentage, approximately what are the chances that you will eat ice cream sometime in the next four days?

100% - I'm going to have a milkshake at lunch today. :grin: Yumm...Bluebell Cookies'n'Cream in a milkshake...

3. Given as a percentage, approximately what are the chances that you’ll get a personal, handwritten greeting in the mail sometime in the next week?

Maybe 1%. I don't know anyone that still does snail-mail, quite frankly....including me. :blush:

4. Given as a percentage, approximately what are the chances that there will be rain in your neighborhood within the next forty-eight hours?

99.9%. C'mon, this is Texas, and it's rained almost every day since February. (OK, honestly - it's rained *every* day since February, but not necessarily at my house. We're under a Thunderstorm warning right now, come to think of it.

Erm...I need to up it, I think - the clouds are here (at the office) and it looks...well, it's going to pour any minute, I think....but, maybe not at home, so I'll leave it at 99.9%.

5. Given as a percentage, approximately what are the chances that in the next twenty-four hours, you will be in the same room as a naked person other than yourself?

50%. I'm a mom with 2 kidlets. Neither of which have *any* scrap of modesty around me...so......I'll leave it at 50%, because I might get lucky today. :giggle: Although, if it's not raining tonight we'll hit the pool (HAH!)...and I usually have to bring something to the nekkid kid(s) while they are changing in/out of their suits.

Nudity/Body Awareness
aka "How comfortable are you in your skin, or with others?" Click here for link

I saw this at Anna's, and decided to join in:

1. Have you ever gone skinny-dipping? Nope, and never will. I'm not comfortable with the thought that someone I don't know is watching me or seeing me nekkid. I'm just now comfortable swimming in our own pool in a 2 piece - but only when it's just family. If "outsiders" are around, it's a one-piece, baby!

2. When you're home alone, do you strip down to get comfortable? Do you ever go out without underwear (bra and/or panties) because it's more comfortable?

I don't strip down to the undies, because of the kids. I don't feel that it's right - but that may just be me. I will run around sans bra/panties, though - you can't see anything under my shirts/pj's, and I don't care if the kids see my saggy body. Plus, after 2 kids worth of OB visits, I have NO modesty when it comes to doctor visits - want me in a paper cocktail napkin? No problem - and you don't have to leave, you'll see it all in a moment anyway.

My kids, on the other hand....run around all the time in nothing but undies. I'm trying to install modesty in them...it's an uphill battle ATM. :grin:


3. Have you ever/Do you use the bathroom with the door open? Are you comfortable using public facilities? :snicker: I have 2 kids - the bathroom door hasn't been shut in over 10 years! :snicker: When I try, I get lots of whining, "emergencies" etc. Public facilities - yup. When you gotta go, you gotta go. I'm just really anal about clean seats, and I try to leave 'em cleaner then when I came in.

4. When getting intimate with your significant other, lights on or off? I prefer OFF. Steve didn't care - #2, however, did. :shudder: It shouldn't matter - I am just not comfortable showing all my flaws at the most intimate of moments. Plus....men are kinda funny looking, kwim? :wink: Of course, after this last not-at-all-DH, intimacy is OUT of the Question. Just thinking about it makes me sick to my stomach...so, this question is actually moot. (I'm nauseous just thinking about this question, actually....:sigh:)

5. How comfortable are you with body exposure/nudity of others? Group shower rooms?, topless/nude beaches?, breastfeeding in public? Erm. I'm not uncomfortable when it's all females - we've all got the same equipment. Co-ed showers....nope. Ditto on nude beaches - I'd prefer NOT to get sunburned on my girls, thankyouverymuch! Breastfeeding - it's natural. When baby's hungry, he/she needs to be fed RIGHT THEN - and I am a PRO. I was able to feed my kid while shopping, eating, whatever - and NO ONE knew...until Himself decided it was fun to flash everybody. I bought a fancy necklace for him to play with - I don't think flashing folks is a good idea. :snicker:

Dear LJ,


I have found a website that I think may interest you:
The site contains the story behind a Native American ceremony that will be performed on October the 6, 2006 at 11:00 PM. Eastern Daylight Time in the U.S.A. At that time they invite the world’s inhabitants to participate in the ceremony in an effort to protect the environment from man’s intervention. They do not ask for any contributions and they are not selling anything. All they are asking is for 15min. of your time to think about what you can do to help save us from ourselves.

So, my phone has apparantly died. I had a signal this AM, (at 5:30-ish, because J. called to say Good Morning. All together now "Ahhhhhhhhhhhh"), then dropped off the kids at daycare and went to turn on the bluetooth. At 6:00 AM, I had a "no netwrk detected" message. Grrrrrrrrrrr.

The network came up, went down, came up, went down....lather rinse repeat.....all effing morning. At 7:00, I used my co-worker's phone (also Cingular), and was able to actually *make* and complete a call. I even tried using the phone withOUT the bluetooth, just in case the headset was going whacko or something.

Get to the office (in N. Dallas - BIG cellphone use here), and still No Network. *sigh* Called Cingular, and the tech decides it's my phone...so I get to try and go by the Cingular store tonight and see what's what. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...........

oh, and just for fun:

You are 96% REAL Texan!!

High five, you're a complete Texan. People from other states should tremble in your presence because they're simply not worthy. Let them bow before you and convey their undying adoration to you while they announce their true desire to be Texan.

You Communicate With Your Body

This isn't as bad as it sounds, it just means that you're a "touchy-feely" person.
You need a lot of affection in your life. And for you, this means both giving and receiving little touches.
Warm hearted, you bond with people easily. In fact, you often feel a little sad when you're not in the company of others.
A little moody, you tend to be controlled by your emotions. But a bit hug always comforts you!
