It has been raining cats and dogs all day long.  I'm coming to work and all of a sudden violent winds, where there were no violent winds before, not only inverted my brand new umbrella breaking it but spirited it away as well.   :o  Poor thing wasn't even a month old. Oh wells at least it was only Walmart and not Coach.

Tropical Paradise of Hard Shelled Fruits / A Healthy Lunch
« on: Oct 14, 2009, 02:03:58 PM »
Today at work we celebrated my former Boss's birthday.  She is now my former boss because about two week ago there was some major a$$ restructuring of our department (but that's for another discussion).  Anyway I counted this little shindig as my lunch.  Today's lunch consisted of: 

1 piece of chocolate cake with chocolate butter-cream frosting (probably ingested around 1,000 calories  ::) but it was good)
1/2 cup chocolate ice cream with chocolate pieces
1 chocolate chip cookie

and two hours or so later
2 fun size Twix bars (what the hell makes them fun anyhow)

I think I am going to go into anaphylactic shock now. :o

Tropical Paradise of Hard Shelled Fruits / Pygmy tariser
« on: Nov 20, 2008, 03:26:33 PM »

I can't decide if this little guy is:

a) very cute
b) scary looking
c) an alien from another world
d) a creation from the Weta Workshop


The little critter is known as a pygmy tariser.  I thought he was some type of marsupial but it turns out that tarisers are primates!  These fascinating creatures were once thought to be extinct.

Tropical Paradise of Hard Shelled Fruits / Help Me, IDE!
« on: Jul 26, 2008, 02:21:15 PM »
I want to be just like you but without all the muscles and sex.  Well some sex would be nice.  Anyhow I mean I want to be in super shape.  I've all ready lost 15 pounds since March, watching my portions and walking at least 3 times a week.  I need some advice.  What kind of work outs do you do and How often do you work out?  What kinds of food do you eat on a regular basis?  I know I would have to modify because I'm a woman, I just need to get a general idea.  Thanks.

Tropical Paradise of Hard Shelled Fruits / My minion attacks!
« on: Sep 12, 2007, 11:02:26 PM »
Funny story! hahaha   :laugh:


Man Attacked by an Owl

John Patterson says he never expected some of the wildlife in Hollywood Park to attack him.

A man is hit in the head three times, scratched up, and left bleeding. All while he was just walking down the street. He says, it was an owl that attacked him.

There's a lot of wildlife in the area, and people are used to it. But John Patterson says, he never expected some of the wildlife to attack him.

Hollywood Park is off the beaten path. It's serene, peaceful, and quiet. So, as the sun went down, John went out to get some exercise.

"I was walking right along here, and it hit me in the back of the head, and I thought I hit a tree limb," John said.

He looked around, and there was no tree limb.

Then, it hit John a second time. He said he thought it was a prank, or that something was after him.

John jogged another 50 yards and it happened a third time.

"It hit me again in the back of the head," John said. "This time I could see it, and it flew by and it had a pretty nice wing span."

John finally got his answer. An owl was what kept hitting him, with a sharp beak and dangerous claws. John's head was bleeding.

"The owl kept screeching at me," John said. "It wouldn't leave, so it was like an attack owl or something."

Word spread in the close-knit neighborhood, and now John's taking some ribbing.

"My nephews are calling me Uncle Hootie," John said. "They call me on the phone, 'who, who, who.' 'John, how are you who, who doing.'"

John says he can laugh about it now, but he was really worried about his eyes. He's also taking a different route on his walk now.

Hollywood Park Police say this is the first owl attack they can remember.

Tropical Paradise of Hard Shelled Fruits / co-workers suck
« on: Jul 07, 2007, 06:05:40 PM »
We now have fucking lunch schedules at work like were are fucking pre-schoolers.  Before we could take our lunch whenever we wanted as long as those who arrived before us had taken theirs.  I liked this flexiblity.  This summer one of my co-workers became full-time and apparently doesn't fucking know how to manage her fucking time and take others into account.  She doesn't mind her work schdule or that of others.  Last week she waited too late to take her lunch so I had to wait later than ususal.  One day this week she complained because she was suppose to take her lunch before 1 and didn't and got yelled at by the boss.  Another co-worker had the whole week off, I was schduled to leave early that day, and the other woman working the desk is only part-time and leaves at 1.  Bitchy co-worker started crying and threw fit, hence we are now on fucking lunch schedules.  This pisses me off to no end.  Why does someone have to always ruin everything for everyone else.     

Nuri and I were coming from the store and I started freaking out because there was a dead kitten in the road.  Nuri got mad because I made the car go into the other lane.  I told Nuri that it was horrible but I was thankful it was a person.  And then I told her I remembered when Derrick and Tom...and I was like oops that's the same person..  :laugh: I mean Derrick and Lisa noooo that's not right and Nuri chimed in Kary... thought there as body in the road when some jackass cut off some people and the bumper fell off. 

Is it wrong for a girl to tell a guy who has a girlfriend that she likes him?  Would that make her seem disrespectful in his eyes?

Tropical Paradise of Hard Shelled Fruits / Who has orange nipples?
« on: Jul 22, 2006, 08:11:35 PM »
This has been bothering me all day since last night.  I was reading about Darwin’s controversial and little known theory of sexual selection.  According to this theory man has developed ethic trait differences due to sexual selection.  For example if your parents are brown-eyed brunettes or if you were reared in a community of brown-eyed brunettes you are more likely to seek out and mate with a brown-eyed brunette people because that is what you consider beautiful.  Over time a community will come to resemble itself whether it is they all have a certain skin color, height, nose shape, eye-color, ECT.  This is known as the founder effect.  Those genes become the ones to dominate and that is what gives the human ethic groups their differences.  

The author then writes “Just as some birds of paradise ended up with yellow plumes and yellow hair and others with black plumes, so some human populations ended up with yellow hair and others with black hair, some with blue eyes and others with green eyes, some with orange nipples and others with brown nipples.”  My question is just who the hell has orange nipples!?!?  Has anyone ever seen orange nipples?  Does anyone have them? What ethic group is this?  I thought nipples were either some shade of pink or brown.  I expect IDE to have the answers.  

Tropical Paradise of Hard Shelled Fruits / cooking eggplant?
« on: Jul 14, 2006, 02:34:59 PM »
Okay this is probably a long shot question here.  Does anyone here eat eggplant and if so what is the best way too cook it?  Nuri bought one for me and is going to cook it as soon as I find a recipe for it.  Thanks.  

I can't believe women were after him!  Maybe they found the theory of relativity sexy.  WTF?!?      New letters reveal mysteries of Einstein's love life

Tropical Paradise of Hard Shelled Fruits / Damn those Fries! ^w^
« on: May 11, 2006, 09:19:34 PM »
So I am stuck here at work until midnight due to extended hours, and I do not feel like eating my sandwich.  I do not feel like driving ffar to get something either.  So I go to the Mcdonald's because it's the closest thing beside that expensive Mexican resturant across the street.  I'm sitting in the breakroom enjoying my food when something on the fry  container catches my eye.  It's the damn nutritional information for the fries!!!  Since when have they done that!  Why?!? Why?!?  When I go to Mcdonald's I know that I am getting junk.  I do not need to know that my fries contain a fourth of my daily caloric needs nor that that also contain my daily fat gram allowance.  Grrrrrrrrr.... And why put that information for the fries and not on anything else?  Mcdonald's is stupid! Stupid! Grrrrrrrrrrr......   :angry:

Nuri brought it to my attention last night that someone stole my "Go Spurs! Go!" antenna basketball.  Those b@stards!!!  :angry: May they suffer the wrath of God. LOL!!!

I'm surprised that ball lasted as long as it did (nearly a year). This is the third time this has happened.  Someone stole my stars and stripes Micky Mouse head when I was at a friend's house.  And my blue glitter Micky Mouse head was taken when I was at the mall.

I trying to figure out what to replace it with.  I'm thinking of just getting a plain ball and writing Jesus loves you or something to that effect.  I don't think anyone would take that.  

Tropical Paradise of Hard Shelled Fruits / Depressed
« on: Apr 24, 2006, 06:22:44 PM »
I'm going to pull a Doug here and bitch and complain.  Okay maybe not.  I'm just feeling sad.  I came across the myspace profile of an old classmate.  The woman is working on her Ph.D.!  I greatly admire her ambition yet I am dismayed at my own lack of ambition.  I’ve been sulking all day.  I know I shouldn’t compare myself to other but my lack of drive is disturbing to me.  I remember a time when I dreamed big and wanted to achieve in life.  I failed to plan properly during college and after and now I am stuck.  I do not want to be stuck behind this library counter or any counter for that matter for the rest of my life.  I’m tired of never having money.  I called my father this morning with the intention of asking for some money but I couldn’t muster up the nerve.  I would love to say I have no debt, and I own my own home, and I am able to do things for those I care about.  I know I have to change this but I am lost as to how to do it.  I needed to let this off my chest.

Tropical Paradise of Hard Shelled Fruits / A successful mismatch?
« on: May 09, 2005, 01:13:48 PM »
odd ball socks

This company is marketing mismatch socks that are sold in 3 or 7 packs.  I don't know how I feel about that.  I go crazy when I lose a sock.  I usually use the mate as a dust rag before tossing it out.  Some crazy relatives of mine use them as toilet paper.   :blink:

Ripped off from USAToday:

Why do aluminum beverage cans have concave bottoms?

No, it's not a trick to make you think you're getting more than you are. The aluminum walls of a carbonated beverage can are only .005 in. thick — about as thick as a magazine cover.

The walls can be so thin because the pressure of the carbon-dioxide gas stiffens the walls the same way a flabby balloon is stiffened when it's filled with air. That's also why the can bottom can't be flat: The pressure would push it out, and the can would rock on its bottom.

The concave bottom acts like an arch dam to resist the pressure. The top can't be dished, though, so it has to be thicker — which is why the cans have a "stepped neck": a smaller-diameter top uses less metal.


Ripped off from USAToday:

'Duck Cheney' gets Secret Service protection in D.C.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Secret Service, which has the job of guarding the president and other dignitaries, now has a new temporary duty — protecting a mother duck and her nine eggs.
The duck, a brown mallard with white markings, has had several names suggested by Treasury Department people, including "Quacks Reform," "T-Bill," and "Duck Cheney." It has built a nest in a mulch pile right at the main entrance to the Treasury Department on Pennsylvania Avenue.

The Secret Service's uniformed division, which provides protection for the White House and Treasury building, has set up metal guard rails to protect the nest, which has attracted the notice of tourists on their way to see the White House.

The duck has been provided with a water bowl and seems oblivious to all the attention, sitting calmly on its nest on top of the mulch pile that surrounds one of the new trees planted along Pennsylvania Avenue as part of a renovation project.

Treasury Secretary John Snow stopped to pay his respects this week on the way back from a congressional hearing, Treasury spokesman Rob Nichols said Friday.

"He had been briefed on the duck and he stopped to pay a visit," said Nichols.

The eggs are expected to hatch the last week of April at which time the duck will be relocated nearer water. But until then, the duck will occupy some of Washington's prime real estate.

"Foreign leaders, members of Congress, everybody who visits Treasury has to pass by the duck," Nichols said.
