George Bush Loyalty Test. Ha!

I took the test that Pete has linked on his blog Augmented Reality but I will post the link right here so you all can do the test yourself if you like.

Go here to take the George Bush loyalty quiz. I'm happy to report that I failed mine miserably. Kudos to me! Here are my results. And no I did not copy Pete's answers in any way. I chose what I wanted to say. It's not my fault that we dislike him equally.

Your score is 0 on a scale of 1 to 10. You hate Bush with a writhing passion. You think he is an idiot, a liar, and a warmonger who has been a miserable failure as president. Nothing would give you greater pleasure than seeing him run out of the White House, except maybe seeing him dragged away in handcuffs.

So who do we want to vote into office in 2008? Ideas are most welcome!

A great joke

I know it's probably been seen already because most of my jokes are ages old and everyone knows them except me but I still have to post this one. I hope you all get a good laugh.

Far away in the tropical waters of the Caribbean, two were swimming
around in the sea - one called Justin and the other called Christian. The prawns
were constantly being harassed and threatened by sharks that inhabited the area.

Finally one day Justin said to Christian, "I'm fed up with being a prawn, I wish
I was a shark, then I wouldn't have any worries about being eaten."

A large mysterious cod appeared and said, "Your wish is granted", and lo and
behold, Justin turned into a shark. Horrified, Christian immediately swam
away, afraid of being eaten by his old mate. Time passed (as it invariably
does) and Justin found life as a shark boring

and lonely. All his old mates simply swam away whenever he came close to
them. Justin didn't realize that his new menacing appearance was the cause
of his sad plight.

While swimming alone one day he saw the mysterious cod again and he thought
perhaps the mysterious fish could change him back into a prawn.

He approached the cod and begged to be changed back, and, lo and behold, he
found himself turned back into a prawn. With tears of joy in his tiny little eyes
Justin swam back to his friends and bought them all a cocktail.

Looking around the gathering at the reef he realized he couldn't see his old
pal. "Where's Christian?" he asked. "He's at home, still distraught that his
best friend changed sides to the enemy and became a shark", came the reply.

Eager to put things right again and end the mutual pain and torture, he
set off to Christian's abode. As he opened the coral gate memories came
flooding back. He banged on the door and shouted, "It's me, Justin, your old
friend, come out and see me again."

Christian replied, "No way man, you'll eat me. You're now a shark, the
enemy, and I'll not be tricked into being your dinner." Justin cried back
"No, I'm not. That was the old me.

I've changed."... "I've found Cod. I'm a prawn again Christian".

Summertime once again

While the calendar may still be saying spring the temperature gauges outside are now registering close to and on several days already over 100 degrees here in Richardson. I think that is about 41c for the rest of the metric world. One day maybe America will try and catch up. Here in Texas we'll bake while we wait thanks.

Anyway, my point is why are we still living here in these hot house temperatures? I feel like an oven baked chicken when I go outside longer than 10 or 15 minutes at a time. Forget mowing grass and all that, I refuse to do that kinda thing until 7 or 8 pm when it's cool enough to breath. I am now going to check the temperature in the Seattle Washington area for comparison.

Check out the differences yourself. Here in Texas we are a mile from the sun. Seattle is a bit further to the north.

Seattle, Washington

Richardson, Texas

Frankly I'm still hoping for a miracle so we can move up there. Keep your fingers crossed everybody! It's too hot for me in Texas. Happy Solstice everyone!
