T13: Women as explained by engineers

Header by Samulli. Play T13 here.

Here's another EnjoyTheMasti mail which I don't consider spam while the fun it brings lasts. The claim is nobody understands women better than engineers do. Their definition is composed of five parts consisting significant points about women, all numbered 1 to 13 which make up my list today.


1. Element: Woman, Symbol: O+, Discoverer: Adam

2. Atomic Mass: Accepted as 55 kg. but known to vary from 45 kg. to 225 kg.


3. Body surface normally covered with film of powder and paint

4. Boils at absolutely nothing - freezes for no apparent reason

5. Found in various grades ranging from virgin material to common ore.


6. Reacts well to gold, platinum and all precious stones

7. Explodes spontaneously without reason or warning

8. The most powerful money-reducing agent known to man.


9. Highly ornamental, especially in sports cars

10. Can greatly aid relaxation

11. Can be a very effective cleaning agent


12. Turns green when placed alongside a superior specimen

13. Possession of more than one is possible but specimens must never make eye contact

It all so sounds official and funny at the same time! We are gems, aren't we?
Hazel said…
Hi Colleen, oh yes, we are! LOL!
Calico Crazy said…
That was definitely worth a chuckle or two.
Brenda ND said…
Huh, what an interesting way of describing a woman. Thanks for the cool insight.

Hugs and blessings,

Good one. I'm sure we could do a man-one which would be equally amusing. :)

Weekend Snapshot: The AIDS Temple (Lopburi I)

It is sometimes referred to as the AIDS Museum, I tend to call it AIDS Temple. Descriptively it is a buddhist hospice for AIDS patients, the largest one in Thailand. Three of us, a friend, my son and I paid Wat (temple) Phrabat Nampu in Lopburi a visit last weekend. As it is where people with AIDS go to to die, most of what we saw are not exactly the ones I'm in a hurry to show off. But if you are curious, you may want to click on a post I did days ago. Anyway, on with shots that I don't think will give anyone a coronary:

100 steps to the wat
After the climb this is where you arrive at

"View from the top" - those are bare cornfields visitors pass by on their way to the temple

Side view of the Life Museum which ironically displays mummies

A usual sight around Thai temples

Bone sculptures

The temple bell

Life is beautiful. Most of us would prefer that of course. AIDS is also real.


The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Honor, Awards and a Game

Tuesday Couch Potatoes: Made of Honor
Awards and a Game/Meme follow. Please scroll down a bit.

My pick for this week's TCP theme (wedding movie) is Made of Honor. I like the humor in it. We've all been to several weddings but how many of us can say I've been to one in which the maid of honor was a he? The scene which particularly cracked me up is when the priest mistook the maid of honor for a gay man =) If you're familiar with some of my likes, you'd know why I also love the Scotland location of the wedding. For more of the synopsis click here; and here's the trailer:

My super duper bloggy friend Thom of Thom's Place for Well Whatever and fellow Mom Tetcha of Pensive Thoughts awarded me this Beautiful Blogger award. I have to list seven things about me so here they are:

1. I love wearing jeans more than skirts.
2. One of my favorite colors is purple.
3. I don't mind spending sunrise…
