good looking, or rich?

Someone once asked me if I would rather be good looking, or rich.

I asked which they would rather be.

They said rich, because if they were rich, they could buy good looks.

So again they asked, Which would I rather be.

My response? "Why would I want to give up one of them?"

mine is smaller than yours

I walked into the middle of two guys having a discussion. Here's where they were:

"I'll bet mine is smaller."

"No, I'm pretty sure mine will be smaller than yours."

"Let's see it, then," said the first.

The other reaches into his pants and pulls out ...

... a cell phone.

one thing I hate

I hate it when women throw themselves at me.

No, wait. They don't throw themselves - they throw rocks.

Either way, I hate it.

pet peeve #4

Wanna know what peeves me?

Parents who bestow ridiculous names onto their children. Many of the worst offenders are those who choose "creative" versions of common names, some of which break spelling rules. An example in recent memory: Alican, (supposed to be pronounced Alice Ann.) I cannot help but to imagine this poor young thing having to deal with her "friends" calling her Alley Can. Eventually, she would probably just answer to that. I also knew a girl named Shelaugh, (Sheila.)

Parents, please don't subject your offspring to middle school torture by naming them something that's only amusing to you.

A fellow blogger recently commented on the gentle way I handled a spammer. I am reminded of a quote, which I'll try my best to recite:

"A gentleman always calls his adversary a 'Gentleman.'
He knows that if he calls the man a fool, and is wrong,
then he himself becomes the fool.
But if he calls him a 'gentleman' and is wrong,
then he remains a gentleman."

naked sunday

Our local newspaper had an interesting story today. From Amsterdam, in the Netherlands,

"A Dutch gym plans to introduce 'Naked Sunday' for people who like to huff and puff in the buff.

Patrick de Man, owner of Fitworld gym in the town of Heteren, said he got the idea in part from two customers who are avid nudists.

Nude exercisers would be required to put towels down on weight machines and to use disposable seat covers while riding bikes. Machines would be cleaned and disinfected afterward.

The first 'Naked Sunday' is scheduled for March 4."

He "de Man!"

March forth.
