I read in some blog somewhere, "you are what you post". Just the thought of that makes me want to gnash my teeth. But I gave up gnashing long ago on the advice of my dentist. And I've got enough angst going in my life right now already. I'm trying to plan TWO birthday parties without having either of them here at the house, which I do not want to clean. My garden work is just beginning. I quit smoking two months ago and still want one about once an hour. I gained ten pounds and don't know how to take them off, considering I'm walking two miles a day, lifting weights and dancing, skipping meals, and no sweets or breads at all. What else can I deny myself? How else can I make my life miserable? What else can I whine and complain about? Oh well, despite the opening line here, I will pass along the amusing but useless links I came across this week.

The end of the world, set to music. Actually, this video shows a compilation of early atomic blasts taken from individual short films of the tests.
A burglar broke into a house one night.
He shined his flashlight around, looking for valuables, and when he picked up a CD player to place in his sack, a strange, disembodied voice echoed from the dark saying, “Jesus is watching you.”
He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his flashlight out, and froze.
When he heard nothing more after a bit, he shook his head, promised himself a vacation after the next big score, then clicked the light on and began searching for more valuables.
Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard, “Jesus is watching you.”
Freaked out, he shone his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice. Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot.
“Did you say that?” He hissed at the parrot.
“Yep,” the parrot confessed, then squawked, “I’m just trying to warn you.”
The burglar relaxed. “Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you?”
“Moses,” replied the bird.
“Moses?” the burglar laughed. “What kind of people would name a bird Moses?”
“The kind of people that would name a rottweiler, “Jesus.”

I am a fan of a blogger who’s the publicity rep or travel coordinator or something for this group. So if you listen to them and like them and buy a CD, I’d appreciate it.
A woman was having a passionate affair with an inspector from a pest-control company. One afternoon they were carrying on in the bedroom together when her husband arrived home unexpectedly.
"Quick," said the woman to her lover, "into the closet!" and she pushed him in the closet, stark naked.
The husband, however, became suspicious and after a search of the bedroom discovered the man in the closet.
"Who are you?" he asked him.
"I'm an inspector from Bugs-B-Gone," said the exterminator.
"What are you doing in there?" the husband asked.
"I'm investigating a complaint about an infestation of moths," the man replied.
"And where are your clothes?" asked the husband.
The man looked down at himself and said,
"Those little devils."
