I Want a Wes Welker Jersey!


But before I get into that there's been something bugging me about the NFL game between the Colts and Jets. I know tons of ink has been spilled over this the last couple of days. But I've been mullin' while other's have been spillin.' Why did the Colts toss that game. Because that's what it was. Resting the starters? Nobody believes that, right? Next week the Colts play the Buffalo Bills. The Colts could rack up 35 plus points by halftime and chill. Then they have a bye week. Nobody believes they tossed the Jets game to "rest" the starters.

The baddest reason would be something to do with playoff teams/gambling/point spread. I don't know enough about that stuff, and also think the Colt's coach is too smart to be that stupid. So we can dismiss that. "Resting" the starters is, as I've already pointed out, ludicrous. Could it be superstition? The Patriots in 2007 were a pretty smooth machine. I think the combine pressures of Spygate and a perfect season added a teaspoon of bilious sulfur to the odds of eventually not playing their best, which lead to the final game-which-will-not-be-discussed, and loss. That loss. That loss-which-will-not-be-discussed. (!)

If its superstition then the Colts are gutless. Completely and totally gutless. I don't think a team can have the kind of record the Colts have and be gutless. No. What I think their goal was? Pissing Belichick (coach of the New England Patriots) off. lol. Consider. The Colts said "Pishha. Perfect seasons *like the Patriot's* don't matter! Our goal is more lofty! Its the Super Bowl!" (loud snickers are heard in the background.) And, it is rumored that Belichick has decent hearing. See, the deal is, the Colts want a bigger challenge, bigger than a mere perfect season. They want to face a pissed off Belichick in the play offs. Makes sense, doesn't it? Its the only thing that does.

So send the Wes Welker jersey to XXO! ;)

Merry holidays everyone. I'm not into Christmas presents. I've got way too much stuff already, and every time I visit a person's house that has a rather overwhelming, ah, texture about it I want to come home and get rid of more stuff. Stuff is the stuff of stuff. It makes me feel stuffy. *Exempted from the stuff category are tools, of course.*

But I did receive two excellent presents this year. One was a fabulous meal, totally vegan except for one rather small and lonely platter of meat. I also must complement my niece on the presentation, nicely interactive, as well as the food itself. And the other present was one of my nephew's t-shirts:

Truly, a good Christmas. I even have some cute cards to mail out sometime (soon!) And here is a clip of a part of this season I've been enjoying for some weeks now. *Christmas lights rock.*

Warning: Cuteness Overload

I think this critter would fit in well in my household...

They're Here!

My newest pretties. I think its taken me so long to finish them up because, well, time has been at a premium. But I also just wanted to pet them for a while. The Lucky Bird pendant has a moissanite stone in its head, and a pink troumaline in the bail. The moissanite is way more expensive than a CZ would be, and I'm not sure anyone would notice. (Unless I was standing right there saying ain't it cute.) The moissanite does have better light qualities than a CZ. But the main reason I wouldn't set a CZ in something like this is, after going through all this effort why not use a nicer stone.

The Lucky Lips pendant, (not sure how lucky it would make anyone's lips!), has a mexican fire opal for an eyeball.

Sometime I'll collect all my writings on the penny pieces and post it under a link at the side. It has to do with finding coins in the street and the lottery. The luck of the jewelry, by the way, is for the pennies. They were lucky to be found and given a new life. Hopefully they'll spread the love.

(ugh. another bad pic!)

To Show that I Enjoy...

...Other games. *so you don't have to worry about my sanity should the Patriots stuff an otherwise winnable game IN A POOPY TOILET SEAT!* *Not that the bad beer good neck bar suffered a poopy toilet seat 2 weeks in a row. Or that the good beer bad neck bar has ever suffered a poopy toilet seat. I'm just sayin'!*

One reason I listen to Sunday morning NPR is Will Shortz. *The other reason is I need to get up sometime.*

And while I'm ripping off pics (the first was a Johm McPherson pic from UComics,) think I'll include one whose provence I don't remember. From somewhere and stuck in a folder at sometime...

Sometimes, you know, we live in a sick sick time. Other times there's the advances in modern medicine, technology of communication and movement and energy technology you name it. We are the prism of a lab tube. It is within us to succeed. We need to keep an eye on the clock, and the goal line.
