This one’s gone viral I’ve heard from other moms at the football game.

My pirate name is:
Bloody Morgan Vane
Every pirate lives for something different. For some, it’s the open sea. For others (the masochists), it’s the food. For you, it’s definitely the fighting. You tend to blend into the background occaisionally, but that’s okay, because it’s much easier to sneak up on people and disembowel them that way. Arr!
Get your own pirate name from piratequiz.com.

Avast! It wouldn’t take much for me to disembowel someone today, so Bloody Morgan Vane fits. Or my old pirate name, Mad Hook-Handed Helen. Both are good. Feel free to refer to me as either or both. Arrrr.
And props to Mad Grace Bonney for the link.

The surest cure for a crazy idea is to ask your friends’ opinions.
My latest crazed thought it that it is jolly well time for me to get my nose pierced. I did my homework; there shall be no adolescent self-piercings. Nothing but the best for this old gal trying to look young.
So I asked my wise and also slightly crazed friend D for her advice. Here’s what she said:
Subject: Re: my mid-life crisis
Oh my … another mid-life crisis to deal with …
That’s what’s so great about being over 50 – you’re officially out of the “mid-life crisis” stage, and are now just old. And boring, and conservative and taking risks is just not worth the bother – after all, risks disturb our little worlds. We are just too busy dealing with pending arthritis, forgetfulness, fading eyesight, hearing loss, etc. etc. It’s getting harder and harder to keep the gray covered. Clothing and shoes are now chosen for comfort rather than style. And our jewelry is now limited to easy-on/easy off stuff. We don’t want to dig around inside our nostrils to change our looks. That might mess up our sinuses somehow, and you know that sinuses can cause all sorts of medical problems. As if we didn’t have enough medical issues to deal with …
But you, my dear, are not old yet. And a mid-life crisis could be a lot worse than a nose piercing, and it’s cheaper than a red sports car like all the stupid men get, so I say GO FOR IT !!! (Maybe *** [edited to spare myself embarrassment] likes a little nose jewelry!) To inspire you, here are some looks you might want to consider:
Simple, yet tasteful a bit more fashion forward
the popular layered look for those “ethnic” dress days
playful and youthful extravagant – for
occasions calling for something special
the “country”girl look
Now, you may be re-thinking the whole nose piercing thing at this point, so let me offer an alternative suggestion:
the corset piercing look Yes, this is real piercing, lovely, isn’t it?
Before you do anything, Lorinda, you need to consider the effects of your actions on your family members, especially family members of a different generation, who might not be able to appreciate your body art. A good reference before your next trip to see the parents:

I swear, you certainly have livened up my Sunday afternoon web surfing! And to think I was just sitting here laughing over comments about Heather Mills’ artificial leg!
I anxiously await your response, and hope I’ve been helpful to you in making the pierce/no pierce decision.
Care to weigh in? And actually, my parents would probably be okay with it. They usually take my antics with a grain of salt. Probably why they’re still kickin’ around.

Check out these videos from a church in North Carolina. They redubbed a vintage movie with the those ‘unspoken’ lessons we teach and practice about Jesus. It’s okay to laugh. I sure did. I especially love Jesus’ voice.
It’s Sunday School meets Mystery Science Theater 3ooo

videos from SNL. I have to confess, I’ve mostly stopped watching SNL because the median age of people who laugh at someone on TV referencing a female or male body part and then mugging for the camera about it is about thirty years younger than I am.
But these are cracking me up. And Justin Timberlake is hilarious.
See the rest here.

Looking for the contest?
Or does that offend you? It kinda does me. But it’s funny.
Here’s a lawyer’s take on Season’s Greetings sent to me by a friend.
A lawyer’s version of a Christmas greeting:
Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit our best
wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low
stress, non-addictive, gender neutral, celebration of the winter
solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of
the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of
your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasions
and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice
religious or secular traditions at all . . .
. . and a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and
medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally
accepted calendar year 2007, but not without due respect for the
calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society
have helped make America great, (not to imply that America is
necessarily greater than any other country or is the only “AMERICA”
in the western hemisphere), and without regard to the race, creed,
color, age, physical ability, religious faith, choice of computer
platform, or sexual preference of the wish-ee.
(By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms. This
greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely
transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies
no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for
her/himself or others, and is void where prohibited by law, and is
revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is
warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of
good tidings for a period of one year, or until the issuance of a
subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is
limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the
sole discretion of the wisher.).
