Terrific Thursday

Certainly is...one day before Friday!!! And today is officially the first day of summer. According to the scientific types, it will occur at 2:06 P.M. EDT. According to my weather reports, it was officially summer a couple of weeks ago with this heat. Also on this day, it will be the longest day of the year and subsequentially the shortest night. If its the longest day of the year why am I still short on time?


Wacky Words not used every day...
Slubberdegullion:A sloven.
Harengiform: Shaped like a herring.
Quaquaversal: Pointing in every direction.
Hircine: Having a goaty smell. (You smell baaaaad)
Galleanthropy: The delusion that one is a cat.
Forficulation: The sensation of earwigs crawling over the skin.

Thoughts to Ponder:
Why did the kamikaze pilots wear helmets?
Do illiterate people get the full effect of alphabet soup?

Have you seen the commercial that shows a detergent that can handle bloodstains? It's such a violent image. Personally, I think that if you've got a T-shirt with a bloodstain all over it, then perhaps laundry isn't your biggest problem. First, you need to get rid of the body, then worry about the wash.

And here's my closer...
It was the last day of the school year, and Miss Figpot was talking to her fourth grade class. She asked "What will you be doing this summer?"
"Me and my family will go to the beach a lot," Suzie answered.
"That sounds like fun," said Miss Figpot. "How about you, Emma? What will you do this summer?"
"My family just bought new bikes will ride together." Emma replied enthusiastically.
"That sounds lovely," said the teacher. She continued with all her students until she got to Little Johnny in the back of the room.
"What will you do this summer, Johnny?"
"Nothing," Little Johnny responded timidly.
"Nothing? Aren't you going to do anything with your family?" she asked, trying to get Little Johnny to use his imagination.
"Nothing." He replied
"Will you go to the beach?"
"No."
"Will you ride bikes?"
"No, never!" Little Johnny burst out. "We can never ride bikes together!"
"Why not?" said the shocked Miss Figpot.
"I don't know," explained Little Johnny, "But dad always says, when mom and sis start 'cycling together', it's time to get the hell out of town."

Have a terrific Thursday!

Here's another definition of Quaquaversal: What you can expect from teenagers if you ask, "Who's responsible for this?"
