Just a thank-you to all who made my birthday special. Thanks for the greetings, the many presents, and even an "Ode to an Aunt". It really made my day. I'm just now recovering; that's my excuse for taking so long to thank-you all!


I just hate it when I hang around someone so much (or read their writings), that I start talking like them. I tend to pick up individual nuances and start using them myself. My most recent verbal acquisition has been "flippin'".

I bet y'all can never guess who I picked that up from??!!

It wasn't so bad when I just had the word in my head. Someone would piss me off at work and I would think, "That flippin' SOB...". However the other day I actually spoke it outloud! This is not my vocabulary! It doesn't even make sense! What, I now want to flip someone off, but instead of doing that I say "flippin"??!!

Do you ever find yourself picking up idioms from other people?

Yeah! Panthers beat the Bears 29-21. I'm so happy. I was really rooting for the Bears to lose.


1. I really thought the Bears pulled some cheap shots during the last Packers vs Bears game. They were beating us handily and still put a hard hit on Favre and laid out Driver. Driver's was close to a head to head. There was no reason for it. We weren't threatening to win; they just had to prove their domination

2. I think the Bears have treated their former QB Orton really poorly. Once QB Rex Grossman was healthy enough to come back and play, they promptly forgot all about Orton. Well, I shouldn't say forgot, they actually dissed him. All I head was about the Golden Boy Grossman. About how he could throw the ball and now the Bears would have an offense (unlike with Orton). You know, Orton was only a manager. ..

Well, guess what? That manager did a whole lot better than the Golden Boy did. Golden Boy may be able to throw the ball deep, but you have to have some degree of accuracy and good decision making ability. Neither one of which he exhibited today. Orton was at least accurate for short throws and did what was needed to win and get them to the play offs.

3. I heard the Bears were dissing the Panthers earlier in the week. There was a quote reference the Panthers not deserving to be in the play offs. Don't piss off players you are going to face ahead of time. They already know how important the game is; it only gives them added incentive when you insult them.


So it starts...excuses for why the evil empire ('poor Patriots') crumbled. Want to play??

So far I've heard..."Everything just went wrong for the Patriots.. the ball was accidentally fumbled...", etc.

"I wonder if the ball travels faster here (Denver-Mile High)...I don't remember from when I used to play..." (As an excuse for Brady's poor passing ability towards the end of the game.)


Ding Dong the Dynasty's Dead, the Dynasty's Dead...Ding Dong the Evil Dynasty's Dead!

Oh, yeah! Best game ever. Best sign seen ever..."Beat the Brady Bunch!"

Its just too bad they let the Patriots score that touchdown at the end. It would have been awfully cool to see Brady go touchdownless.
