How's it gonna be?

Saturday 9: How's it gonna be
Scroll down for Weekend Funnies

1. How's it gonna be in 2011 for you?Hopefully achieving one major goal.

2. What is your idea of a perfect romantic evening? Lots of good conversation and proper hugs

3. What strategy would you implement to deal with drug abuse in today's world? Legalize use. Abusers can destroy themselves for all I care.

4. What thing about your family are you least proud of? Wanton disregard for a law or two. If there are recent issues I am usually the last person to know.

5. What part of the holidays are you really looking forward to? A quorum of great company

6. Who is the last person you high-fived? Why? My long-haired son, when we landed at Ninoy Aquino International Airport. The immigration officer mistook him for a girl and forgot to fuss that one of his passports was expired. We made it home.

7. Have you ever made out at a drive-in?
No, and I don't think I will ever be in the mood for it.

8. If you had only enough energy left in you for one last smile, who would you give it to? CJ, I hope he is accessible enough by then

9. Tell us about that time when you were the “life of the party”. I exert minimal mobility and suffer in silence while the rest are having a blast. I am Mom and Auntie Hazel to these darling party rascals. I foot the bill.

Weekend Funnies: Who says religion can't be funny?

I got this via email, thanks OM2. Images stay tiny and some texts could hardly be read so I will write them down.

Walmart is not the only saving grace

Read the Bible - it will scare the hell out of you

Forgive your enemies. It messes with their heads

There are some questions that can't be answered by Google

Staying in bed shouting, oh God! does not constitute going to church

Gattina said…
Hahaha ! they are great !

I stopped with weekend funnies, because Shakira couldn't do it anymore and I had not enough participants. So I thought I just put "Saturday Fun" and everybody who has something funny can put his link on my blog.
In fact it's the same, lol !
I am Harriet said…
That must have been a tense moment with the passport.

Have a great Saturday!
I LOL at your church pictures! I agree on just one major goal...
Hazel said…
Gattina, thanks for the update.

Harriet, I was too dazed to notice it has expired until I saw the date in another office days later while sorting medical stuff, lol!

Bud, here's hoping this goal is achieved

LOL..I remember the incident at the airport. Okay I'm going to ask you...Crystal Meth, Heroin etc should be legalized? I agree with you about abusers but...Just sayin' :) Love your theme my friend and your Weekend Funnies, which I was going to post until I read what Gattina had to say are a riot :) Have a great Saturday
Hazel said…
Good memory, Thom :) The answer is no, they won't. Let lawmakers use their brains. We're clean and don't we have enough issues of our own to deal with something as stupid as drug abuse?

Saturday Fun sounds apt,,eh... :) You have a great week too.

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.

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…
