South Park Episodes

Pat and I were watching South Park this evening, and I decided to make a list of my favorite episodes. Just for fun. I list them here for your pleasure, and to give my family a minor heart attack!

  • Michael Jackson

  • Mormon Episode - dumb! dumb! dumb!

  • Ninja Episode! "Let's fighting love!"

  • Cow Days. "moo"

  • Scientology - "Trapped in the closet!"

  • The dog whisperer - TCHHHTCH!

  • Free Wilzyx - The free willy meets South Park episode!

  • Faith +1 is good too.

  • Jennifer Lopez episode is disturbing but REALLY funny

  • The hippy episode was good too.

The Catholic episode earns an honorable mention only cause of the Pitfall scene. I laughed for a full hour over that one.

The spontaneous explosion episode also earns honorable mention for the catholic priest half singing half chanting that "Let's go" and the congregation singing back "Bronco's!!"

Anything with Jesus vs Santa is hilarious because it brings out the fact that we really do commercialize a strictly religious holiday.

I can't stand the veal episode, any episode with Christopher Reeves, or anything gross. :p

Oki...everyone enjoy your weekend!

We're getting Pat's tooth pulled Monday, he's not having a good time of his tooth hurting him.

Blogging Issues

In porting over the blog to a new blogging service thingie, I'm noticing some problems.

Pat will have to help me fix them, I'm not technologically inclined. :(

Be patient please!

Give me money....well not really me...but give anyway!!

It is that time of year ladies and gentleman.

I am raising money for the annual Relay for Life walk here in Ridgecrest.

The relay is sponsored by the American Cancer Society and is an overnight event with teams aiming at having a walker on the track at any given moment.

Though I'm raising money through my boss's team (3 girls in the office have had cancer, one died of it 2 years ago.), I am walking with my girlscout troop. YAY!

PLEASE GIVE MONEY! :p There, subtle enough for ya?

My donation page!

Give me a yell if you feel uncomfortable donating on the web, and I can mail you a printed form you send directly to the fundraising committee.

Thanks all.

My donation page!

Just in case you missed it the first time! *winks*

The Heathrow Thing

I spent about 2 hours yesterday writing up stuff for this blog, and then I forgot that I hadn't update Windows with the security stuff that just came out, and I rebooted, and lost it all. *sighs* So here goes again!

This week's sensational terrorist plot story has been a huge shock to many in the travel industry. I believe it will forever change the way we travel, once more. Now into the "rights thing".

I've talked to quite a few people who believe it is their right to walk onto an airplane and not be searched. I think these are the same people who believe it's their right to drive 90 on a freeway and not be stopped, because they're "keeping up with traffic". Flying is a luxury, not a right. Like writing checks. Follow the rules, and everything is fine. Don't like it, that is a right. Want to say you don't like it, without being shot? That is also a right. Don't want to have what you believe are your "civil rights" violated? You have choices!

Walk, drive, get on a bus (you'll be searched in most major city bus depots)! Take a taxi, video conference, cruise (they'll search you there too!), or subway (they search here too!).

Let's all remember what a "right" is. In this country (U.S.) you can not like something, speak out about it, and YOU WON'T BE SHOT FOR EXPRESSING YOUR OPINION. Even if it's stupid. In other countries, bye-bye. Don't like it? Move to another country, and watch your mouth near any Federalies touting machine guns. I'm sure they'd love to have you. I'm more sure you and you're annoying self won't be missed. =)

I believe this whole issue will change carry-on luggage. I only hope I can take books onto planes, and that someday, I won't be afraid to check my laptop....somehow I don't see that happening. And I don't really have any more faith in shipping it to my destination before-hand. Guess that means it won't be going places. Anyone I visit HAD BETTER HAVE HIGH SPEED!!! :p

More on this story....I hope you know the details. The men weren't arrested while trying to board a plane. Do you realize that? The British interceppted a message from Pakistan that basically said 'Go ahead with your plans', and they moved in on these guys, that were already being watched. wow!!

My thanks to our allies who are on the ball, for their own sake, and our own. In case you need more info. They had 2 sets of tickets. One for what is believed to be a "dry run" and another for what is believed to be "the planned attack".

So why all the fuss, if they got the guys? What if those aren't the guys that the message was to?! What if somehow, the real team got missed, or it was a subterfuge, and they knew they were being watched? It's all so confusing...

Since the incident Heathrow Airport has been overwhelmed. The amount of security has taxed all available resources, and then amount of personnel needed to deal with luggage that's been checked is severely lacking, causing huge delays, cancellations of flights, and general chaos.

Here are the only things being allowed as carry-on luggage on Heathrow flights. It's a rather bleak list.

  • pocket size wallets and pocket size purses plus contents (for example money, credit cards, identity cards etc (not handbags));

  • travel documents essential for the journey (for example passports and travel tickets);

  • prescription medicines and medical items sufficient and essential for the flight (e.g. diabetic kit), except in liquid form unless verified as authentic.

  • spectacles and sunglasses, without cases.

  • contact lens holders, without bottles of solution.

  • for those travelling with an infant: baby food, milk (the contents of each bottle must be tasted by the accompanying passenger) and

  • sanitary items sufficient and essential for the flight (nappies, wipes, creams and nappy disposal bags).female sanitary items sufficient and essential for the flight, if unboxed (eg tampons, pads, towels and wipes).

  • tissues (unboxed) and/or handkerchiefs

  • keys (but no electrical key fobs)

  • All passengers must be hand searched, and their footwear and all the items they are carrying must be x-ray screened. Any liquids discovered must be removed from the passenger.
I think I'd be slightly mortified to take unboxed/wrapped tampons in a clear baggie for the world to see. But what choice does one have?

Anyway, that's enough for now. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, everyone!

A Look Through Faves

Every now and then I go through my favorites and find weird things hanging around that I can't stand to get rid of, but that I never need. I am, however, amused by them sometimes, so I keep them!

Today's finds?

The Helmet Project

Peasent's Quest - Fans of Trogdor and Sierra On-Line will LOVE this one. No cheating!

Hamburger Gravy Recipe - Just a random piece o' fun!

Someone set up us the bomb! All Your Base baby!! ROFL! Old gaming joke. Yes, it's cheesy. I'm a gamer, what do you expect??!

Monarch of the Seas reviews. We went on our honeymoon, we're going again in Feb!

Feeding Frenzy!

Relay for Life

I posted this on a few gaming forums I'm a part of, and wanted to share it with you. I'll be posting more details here, since most of you guys are more personal friends.

It's time for the soapbox! =)
Relay for Life is a cancer walk done every year, across the nation, different dates and locations. The time for our local walk is upon us! While I'm not above asking for money ( My Page!!! ) it's not the reason for this post.


Having had a personal experience with cancer, I can't stress enough how important it is to be aware. It affects you forever. And the earlier you're made aware of it, and can decide how to deal with such an intensely personal issue, the more choices you have.

If you know ANYONE, male or female, who hasn't been checked out, harass them about it. Even if it means loosing their friendship. It could mean a life.

If you haven't been checked out, WTF!!!! Get to a dr! Can't afford it, contact your local American Cancer Society or (email me for the various other country societies :p) and they will help you. Can't, or don't want to go alone, or just don't feel like it. Drop me a line. Please.


Those who are involved in legislation, research, or who donate, volunteer, and walk for awareness, and cures, thank you. Those who push others into getting checked out early, and often. You're the heros. Those who've struggled with cancer in the past, or who are dealing with it now. Stay strong. You're loved. *hugs*

Sorry for the soapbox, again. It's worth it though. Trust me.

Ladies and Gentleman! Boys and Girls! I present to you the most fun time of year: FOOTBALL SEASON!!! It helps that basketball season is right around the corner!

Thankfully, Pat and I *mostly* agree on football stuff.

  • Tenessee
  • San Diego State University....we're rebuiling....again! argh!!!!!!
  • Unfortunately, Pat is a bandwagon, good for nothing, LA lovin', USC fan. May I just say, GO TEXAS!!!! =) I don't think we'll be hearing "threepeat" anytime soon. WOO!
  • Pretty much any west coast team, over east coast.
  • Idaho....and for some reason Pat likes the cheating blue field Boise State.
We both hate Florida teams, New York teams, Pat has this thing against New England that apparently dates back to his time in Vermont. So we're a very anti-Patriot home.
Now, the other stuff.

Our Pro teams are only a few favorites, for the most part it's rooting AGAINST certain teams. The teams we love are:

  • Denver (WOOOOOOOOO)
  • The Colts, though I don't know if he likes them because Manning went to Tenessee or cause he just likes the colts. I think it's Manning.
  • Our friend Jeremy makes it almost impossible to not root for Green Bay, only cause he gets a little excited when they win, and very depressed when they lose.
  • Pat likes the Titans cause they're from Tenessee. Surprsingly, he's not, which makes no sense.
Teams we hate are much easier to decide on. We hate Oakland, and any team that is either currently in, or a past resident of, LA.

We NORMALLY hate NY, but since another Manning is their QB, we've been forced to re-think this. I personally, hate the team, but I guess Manning isn't quite so bad.

The Vikings, Ravens, Cowboys, have I mentioned that Patriots? The Falcons, any team T.O. is on....that's pretty much it. We don't really like the Redskins, or the Dolphins, so we automatically root for the other team.

I personally hate the Chargers with a passion so deep it's hard to explain. So Pat regularly roots for them. Bastige. Either way, there's always a team we're either a HUGE fan of, or that we really truly despise playing, so it makes it more fun to watch games.

That said, any really good football game is fun to watch, wether you're rooting for a given team or not. Those games are few and far between though. It IS the pro's, after all.

In other news: BASKETBALL is almost here!!! The fun part? San Diego State (my team) plays Arizona (Pat's team) and my team stands a good chance of playing his team INCREDIBLY close. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Gonna be a hot night in this house during THAT game!!!

S! D! S! U!

S! D! S! U!

Happy Weekend!

I promised myself I'd start keeping a list of books I finished, so I figured I'd start today.

Today, I finished Belgarath the Sorcerer by David and Leigh Eddings.

I start Polgara the Sorceress now!

In other news, someone named Tina (insert last name and the 'net. Can't ever be too careful, eh?) messaged me today. The name sounded really familiar, but the title only said "Hi there" so it almost got deleted, until something kinda clicked, and I decided to read it. What a shock to find out it was my cousin, Christina, whom I haven't heard from in many years.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
