"The difference between involvement and commitment is like ham and eggs. The chicken is involved, the pig is committed." -Martina Navratilova
My cat, Baby, has been standing and staring at me since I woke up at 8:45 this morning. It is now 11:45. That's three hours. He does this sometimes. It spooks me. Just standing there staring. Staring. Staring. Why are you doing this, Baby? He doesn't blink. LOL Does anyone else with cats have a cat that does this?
I received a hilarious email from Merry and wanted to use it for "Wordplay" today. I hope you all find it as funny as I do. Merry, coincidentally, is celebrating a birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Merry! I hope you have a very wonderful year!! You are a very, very special lady!! This email asks the age-old question, "Why did the chicken cross the road?" I don't know the original author of this email or I would give them credit. I would like you to read the responses below and tell me your favorite! Let me know in the comments section, have fun, and I hope you laugh away like I did!!
Dr. Phil: The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on "THIS" side of the road before it goes after the problem on the "OTHER SIDE" of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he's acting by not taking on his "CURRENT problems before adding "NEW" ones.
Oprah: Well I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross this road so badly. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm going to give him a car, so that he can just drive across the road and not live life like the rest of the chickens.
George W. Bush: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here.
Donald Rumsfeld: Now to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road.
Anderson Cooper/CNN: We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.
John Kerry: Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross, and I was misled about the chicken's intentions. I am for it now, and will remain against it.
Judge Judy: That chicken crossed the road because he's GUILTY! You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks!
Pat Buchanan: To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.
Martha Stewart: No one called to warn me which way that chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer's Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level.
Dr. Seuss: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I've not been told.
Ernest Hemingway: To die in the rain. Alone.
Grandpa: In my day we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough.
Barbara Walters: Isn't that interesting? In a few moments we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heart-warming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its life-long dream of crossing the road.
John Lennon: Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing roads together - in peace.
Aristotle: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.
Bill Gates: I have just released eChicken2006, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your checkbook. Internet Explorer is an integral part of eChicken. The platform is much more stable and will never cra...#@&&^(C|..... reboot.
Albert Einstein: Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?
Bill Clinton: I did not cross the road with THAT chicken. What is your definition of chicken?
Al Gore: I invented the chicken!
Colonel Sanders: Did I lose one?
My favorites are Dr. Seuss, Al Gore, Albert Einstein and Bill Gates. Not necessarily in that order. What is/are your favorite (s)? Let me know in the comments section.
Baby finally stopped staring at me because I fed him a treat. Go figure. I will have more up-to-date pictures of Josiah for you tomorrow! I found them on my daughter's My Space page. Gee, Chels, why didn't you send these pictures to me??? Argh!!!
Hope everyone is having a good weekend and keeping warm. Hugs to everyone! xox
I'm a gal with chronic pain and illness who has been forced to live life slowly. I appreciate this pace. I've learned to notice small joys and smell the flowers along the way =). Come in and say hello...
