Joke of the Week
Joke of the Day: If someone from the 1950s suddenly appeared, what would be the most difficult thing to explain about life today? One answer: “I possess a device in my pocket that is capable of accessing the entirety of information known to man. I use it to look at pictures of cats and get into arguments with strangers.”

Listen people, pay attention when you drive. Especially in the morning when KIDS ARE WALKING TO SCHOOL! I know you have a busy life and I know that work is important and I know that you just have to TEXT YOUR BOY TOY. But know this, I work for the WJPD which means Witch Jaylene will knock you Punk ass Down if you try to go through my stop sign! No arguments, you will be sorry, end of story. At the very least, you travel to work with a stop sign wedged in your back window. (or up your booty if I can reach you!)
"Why did Jesus make the tooth fairy?" asks Topher. Oh boy, here I go treading the fine line between lying outright and lying to preserve innocence. "Jesus made the tooth fairy to help collect all of the teeth that little kids lose because he can't do it by himself". I love it when he mulls over and answer I have just given him. You can almost see the cogs turning behind his eyes. Then he asks me if the tooth fairy is a boy or a girl. Are there boy fairies? He shakes his head emphatically yes! Here is my chance to inject some feminism. "Well, Santa is a boy and I'm pretty sure the Easter Bunny is a boy, so I am going to say the tooth fairy is a girl". Okay, he is okay with that. But this morning I will say that there are boy fairies. I'm pretty sure there is an insomnia fairy and he visited me last night. Only boy fairies would be as industrious as to work in the wee hours of the morning. The girl fairies went to bed exhausted hours ago! :)

Hi, all! Here it is, the one you've been waiting for. Lisa better be the first person that reads this! I finally have a blog and that is only because my dear sister set it up for me! (Thanks Rachelle!) As you can see from the title, this will be no ordinary blog. Any post you see here is not the responsibility of the writer because from a technical standpoint, I am insane! (my own diagnosis) Hopefully people that visit it will appreciate it, and see that it is (mostly) all in fun. I don't know that I will be posting a lot of pictures here because I am still digital camera illiterate (anyone else out there the same way?), but I will do my best to learn in the coming weeks (years). What I will do is give the reader a glimpse into the life of a very busy woman. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll kiss ten minutes goodbye (or ten seconds, depending on how much time you spend reading). Enjoy!
