Cry fest

Going through a crying spell, but know why. It's something I can't help right now, but the tears are cleansing and I'm embracing it.
Ginni's birthday is on the 10th of October...and I'm missing her. Plus, the Race for the Cure is on the 17th. This is something I do as a birthday present for her. I'm a little sad this time around because team membership is down and so are donations. I guess it's the recession. Still, it's sad to see such low numbers this year. I'm praying for a miracle between now and the deadline. If there isn't one, I know it's not because of a lack of trying. I'm giving it everything I've got. It's stories like this one that make all the hard work and tears worthwhile:

Diabetes Medication May Get New Life as Cancer Treatment

Maybe in our lifetime, someone else's sister will be cured. I hope...and pray.

Happy birthday Ginni.

If Billy Mays is dead, why is he still selling me crap? Furthermore, why am I still buying the crap? Where the hell is my Jupiter Jack???

This is going to sound strange, but what does your Catfish Charlie Blood Catfish Dip Bait taste like? It's item IK-111006 in your internet. I think my girlfriend may have tricked me into eating some of it on a cracker. It tastes what I imagine rotten fish would taste like. She cried, saying it was a cheese spread she’d been working on all day, but that may have been faking. It turned my stomach like nothing before and I spewed, so I don’t think I’m poisoned or anything. I think it was the catfish bait because she wouldn’t eat any (says she’s lactose intolerant or some horse ****) and she wouldn’t let me take any to her mom in the retirement home because she’s on a strict diet. So do you think it was catfish bait or just some really bad cheese spread?

Hello Sam,

Thank you for visiting our Product Information Department,

Unfortunately I couldn’t locate anyone who has tasted the catfish bait, so we don’t know what it tastes like. Sorry about that. I would have to go with really bad cheese spread. If you have further questions feel free to e-mail us again, or log on to our “live chat” page. You can click on “Customer Service” at the top of any of our webpages, we would be happy to assist you.

Heh. And I thought I got crazy stuff in MY inbox!

Enjoy! And don't eat no Catfish bait.

Til next time,

Online Community Players

I am a member of two or three online communities. Not sure whether it's two or three now since I visit them rarely anymore. Only when there's nothing on TV, or I beat the latest Facebook game. These days, I like to go just to catch up and chat a little bit, til I get bored. But like a soap opera, you miss a month, you usually end up where you left off. Another thing that hasn't changed: The roles we assume when we participate in these online communities. A friend of mine posted a link when he got fed up with members constant PMS. (posting mean shhhhh-tuff). It's great for a chuckle when you find yourself wondering why ya signed up for the danged thing anyway. It's also a funny way to find out what role you assumed when you chose to get your stupid-self involved in a petty community argument.

Ladies and Gentlemen enjoy: The Flame Warriors by Mike Reed

The funniest thing I find about this site is, as fed up as the author was when he wrote out the roles, he still created a community!

Eh, we love it and we know it. LOL.

Til next time.
