Love is about surrender — of one's heart, soul, mind, and body... The bonding of two souls... dancing... intertwining... becoming whole... complete... one... What else matters?

Love is a wonderful thing.
You never have to take it away
From one person to give it to another.
There's always more than enough to go around.

— Pamela de Roy

(by the infamous Unknown Author unless otherwise noted)

Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever.

I don't have a license to kill. I have a learner's permit.

If a man is talking in the woods and no woman hears him... is he still wrong?

My wife and I were happy for twenty years. Then we met. — Rodney Dangerfield

Diplomacy is the art of letting someone have your way. — Daniele Vare

George W. Bush is looking to attract more Hispanic voters. At least that's what I thought he meant when he said he was planning on "scoring some Colombian".

In retrospect, my line of adult Pokemon cards might have sold a little better if I'd had them drawn professionally, instead of just using Polaroids of myself. — Silas Knight


You've got to see this — it's hysterical:
Sex on the Internet

[Thanks to The Mother Goddess (Dr. Mom) for sending me this]


TRANSPORTATION: A report out of Britain reveals that within 10 years cars could automatically be prevented from speeding. A device within the car will be able to determine the vehicle's location by satellite, access the speed limit for each street in the country, and cut off the car's fuel supply if the car is speeding…
[Right. How are the latest transmissions from that Mars Lander, by the way...?]

MEDICINE: A Brazilian engineer claiming to embody the spirit of a World War I German field doctor eluded arrest during a raid on his makeshift office where he treated the poor. Rubens de Faria, who says he is the reincarnation of "Dr. Adolph Fritz," started work again this week — a year after authorities closed the "clinic" where they said he operated on hundreds of cancer victims and paraplegics without anesthesia...
[They knew he was a phony when he thought that anesthesia was the daughter of the last Russian Tzar...]

TELEVISION: Another knot has surfaced for the groom on television's "Who Wants to Marry a Multimillionaire." A Web site is reporting that Rick Rockwell, the man who picked a bride and said "I do" on national TV last week, was once ordered by a court to
stay away from an ex-fiancee who accused him of being abusive…

Giant worms living 1,700 feet below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico have been found to be up to 250 years old — a record for creatures without a backbone, scientists say.
[The former longest-lived creature without a backbone was, of course, F. Lee Bailey.]

A Virginia State Senate committee has approved a bill to require every public school in the state to set aside one minute each school day for silent "meditation, prayer or reflection."
[During the contemplative moment, all gradeschoolers will be required to honor whatever God they worship by postponing their Ritalin dose and holstering their weapon.]

The risk of heart disease and stroke is twice as high in women who snore regularly as in those who never snore, report US researchers.
[However, authorities stress that if a "heart disease researcher" asks to sleep with you, it's prudent to insist on seeing his National Institute of Health badge.]

Donald Trump has announced that he will not seek the Reform Party nomination for president.
[His ego, however, indicated it continued to campaign for the presidency alone and perhaps even make a run at Intergalactic Emperor.]

Jeb Bush, Florida's governor is ending all affirmative action programs.
[While Jeb may have abandoned the disadvantaged, his brother George W. continues on the greatest campaign ever to bring honor to the nation's "C" students.]

The musical "Cats," which is the longest-running show in Broadway history, will close in June after 7,397 performances.
[Just to be sure it doesn't happen again, Andrew Lloyd-Webber and the entire cast will be spayed or neutered.]


A Brunette, a Redhead, and a Blonde escape a burning building by climbing to the roof. The Firemen are on the street below, holding a blanket for them to jump into.

The firemen yell to the Brunette, "Jump! Jump! It's your only chance to survive!"

The Brunette jumps and SWISH! The firemen yank the blanket away... the Brunette slams into the sidewalk like a tomato.

"C'mon! Jump! You gotta jump!" say the firemen to the Redhead.

"Oh no! You're gonna pull the blanket away!" says the Redhead.

"No! It's Brunettes we can't stand! We're OK with Redheads!"

"OK!" says the Redhead, and she jumps. SWISH! The firemen yank the blanket away, and the lady is flattened on the pavement like a pancake.

Finally, the Blonde steps to the edge of the roof. Again, the firemen yell "Jump! You have to jump!"

"No way! You're just gonna pull the blanket away!" yelled the Blonde.

"No! Really! You have to jump! We won't pull the blanket away!"

"Look," the Blonde says, "nothing you say is gonna convince me that you're not gonna pull the blanket away! So what I want you to do is put the blanket down, and back
away from it . . ."


Everybody on earth dies and goes to heaven. God comes and says, "I want the men to make two lines. One line for the men that dominated their women on earth and the other line for the men that were dominated by their women. Also, I want all the women to go with St. Peter."

Said and done, the next time God looked, the women are gone and there are two lines. The line of the men that were dominated by their women was 100 miles long, and in the line of men that dominated their women, there was only one man.

God got mad and said, "You men should be ashamed of yourselves. I created you in my
image and you were all whipped by your mates. Look at the only one of my sons that stood up and made me proud. Learn from him! Tell them my son, how did you manage to be the only one in this line?"

And the man replied, "I don't know. My wife told me to stand here."

(Is it possible he and Dan Quayle were mistakenly separated at birth???)

"When I was coming up, it was a dangerous world and you knew exactly who they were. It was us versus them and it was clear who them was. Today we are not so sure who the they are, but we know they're there."
— Texas Gov. George W. Bush, presidential candidate.

"Food on the family."
— George W. Bush listing one of the priorities of his future administration.

"This is Preservation month. I appreciate preservation. This is what you do when you run for president. You've got to preserve."
— George W. Bush to several hundred children at an elementary school in Nashua that was celebrating what it called Perseverance Month (not Preservation Month).

"Is your children learning?"
— George W. Bush on education.

"Some people have too much freedom."
— George W. Bush

"The Grecians."
— George W. Bush on Greek people.

"What I'm against is quotas. I'm against hard quotas, quotas that basically delineate based upon whatever. However they delineate, quotas, I think, vulcanize society."
— George W. Bush, meaning to say "balkanize," not "vulcanize" — we think — and something about quotas (Austin American-Statesman 3/23/99).

"Sitting down and reading a 500-page book on public policy or philosophy or something."
— George W. Bush when asked to name something he isn't good at (Talk magazine, September 1999).

"Please! Don't kill me."
— George W. Bush to Larry King, mocking what Karla Faye Tucker said when asked "What would you say to Governor Bush?" prior to her execution by lethal injection (as reported by Talk magazine, September 1999).

"Tell them I have learned from mistakes I may or may not have made."
— George W. Bush

"Just make sure you put in there, 'He was real tired, too'."
— George W. Bush on the press reporting his verbal miscues.

Is Windows a virus?
No, Windows is not a virus. Here's what viruses do:

• They replicate quickly.
Okay, Windows does that

• Viruses use up valuable system resources, slowing down the system as they do so.
Okay, Windows does that too

• Viruses will, from time to time, trash your hard disk.
Yep — Windows does that, too

• Viruses are usually carried, unknown to the user, along with valuable programs and systems.
Sigh... Windows does that, too

• Viruses will occasionally make the user suspect their system is too slow (see 2) and the user will buy new hardware.
Yup, that's with Windows, too

Until now it seems Windows is a virus but there are fundamental differences:

Viruses are well supported by their authors, are running on most systems, their program code is fast, compact and efficient and they tend to become more sophisticated as they mature.

So, Windows is *not* a virus !

Once upon a time there lived three men: a doctor, a chemist, and an engineer. For some reason all three offended the king and were sentenced to die on the same day.

The day of the execution arrived, and the doctor was led up to the guillotine.

As he strapped the doctor to the guillotine, the executioner asked, "Head up or head down?"

"Head up," said the doctor.

"Blindfold or no blindfold?"

"No blindfold."

So the executioner raised the axe, and z-z-z-z-ing! Down came the blade — and stopped barely an inch above the doctor's neck. Well, the law stated that if an execution didn't succeed the first time the prisoner had to be released, so the doctor was set free.

Then the chemist was led up to the guillotine.

"Head up or head down?" said the executioner.

"Head up."

"Blindfold or no blindfold?"

"No blindfold."

So the executioner raised his axe, and z-z-z-z-ing! Down came the blade — and stopped an inch above the chemist's neck. Well, again, the law stated that if the execution didn't succeed the first time the prisoner had to be released, so the chemist was set free.

Finally the engineer was led up to the guillotine.

"Head up or head down?"

"Head up."

"Blindfold or no blindfold?"

"No blindfold."

The executioner raised his axe, but before he could cut the rope, the engineer yelled out, "WAIT! I see what the problem is!"

One day little Johnny came up to his father and asked, "Dad, where did I come from?"

Dad squirmed a bit, but thought it was time his son knew the facts of life. So, Dad told his son how the expression of love resulted in the beginning of life, how life developed in the womb and finally how a child was born. As Dad told the story, his son's eyes got wider and wider.

When Dad was finished, his son said, "Wow, that's really neat. That sure beats what Billy told me. He said that he came from Philadelphia."


A little girl was puzzled as to her origin. "How did I get here, Mommy?"

Her mommy said, using a well-worn phrase, "The good Lord sent you."

"And did Lord send you too, Mommy?"

"Yes, Dear, He did."

"And Grandma and great grandma and daddy, too?" asked the little girl?

Again the answer was, "Yes."

The child shook her head in disbelief. "Then you mean to tell me there has been no sex in this family for 200 years?......No wonder everyone is so cranky!"


Seven New York City bartenders were asked if they could nail a woman's personality based on what she drinks. Though interviewed separately, they concurred on almost all counts. The results:

Personality: Casual, low-maintenance; down to earth.
Your Approach: Challenge her to a game of pool.

Blender Drinks
Personality: Flaky, annoying; a pain in the ass.
Your Approach: Avoid her, unless you want to be her cabin boy.

Mixed Drinks
Personality: Older, has picky taste; knows what she wants.
Your Approach: You won't have to approach her. She'll send YOU a drink.

Wine (does not include white zinfandel, see below)
Personality: Conservative and classy, sophisticated.
Your Approach: Tell her you wish Reagan had had four more years... Alzheimer's and term limits be damned.

White Zinfandel
Personality: Easy; thinks she is classy and sophisticated, actually has no clue.
Your approach: Make her feel smarter than she is...

Personality: Hanging with frat-boy pals or looking to get drunk...and naked.
Your Approach: Easiest hit in the joint. Nothing to do but wait.

Then there is the male addendum .... The deal with guys is, as always, very simple and clear cut.

Domestic Beer
He's poor and wants to get laid.

Imported Beer
He likes good beer and wants to get laid.

He's hoping that the wine thing will give him a sophisticated image to help him get laid.

He doesn't give two shits about anything but getting laid.

Piss off, all you wankers, I'm gonna go shag something.

White Zinfandel
He's gay.

White Russian
He's really gay.
