Catholic Shampoo

While shopping in a food store, two nuns happened to pass by the beer, wine, and liquor section.

One asked the other if she would like a beer.

The second nun answered that, indeed, it would be very nice to have one, but that she would feel uncomfortable about purchasing it.
The first nun replied that she would handle that without a problem
She picked up a six-pack and took it to the cashier.
The cashier had a surprised look, so the nun said, 'This is for washing our hair."

Without blinking an eye, the cashier reached under the counter and put a package of pretzel sticks in the bag with the beer. 'The curlers are on me".

Broke Back Deer Camp

The guys were all at deer camp. They had to bunk two to a room. No one wanted to room with Daryl because he snored so badly. They decided it wasn't fair to make one of them stay with him the whole time, so they voted to take turns.

The first guy slept with Daryl and comes to breakfast the next morning with his hair a mess and his eyes all bloodshot. They said, 'Man, what happened to you?' He said, 'Daryl snored so loudly, I just sat up and watched him all night.'

The next night it was a different guy's turn. In the morning, same thing--hair all standing up, eyes all bloodshot. They said, 'Man, what happened to you? You look awful!' He said, 'Man, that Daryl shakes the roof. I watched him all night.

'The third night was Frank's turn. Frank was a big burly ex-football player; a man's man. The next morning he came to breakfast bright eyed and bushy tailed. 'Good morning,' he said.They couldn't believe it! They said, 'Man, what happened?'

He said, 'Well, we got ready for bed. I went and tucked Daryl into bed, patted his ass and kissed him good night. Daryl sat up and watched me all night '

Sad, sad day.........





Tim Russert, tenacious journalist, dead at 58

By Don Aucoin Globe Staff / June 14, 2008


Tim Russert, a powerhouse of broadcast journalism who made interviewing both an art form and a contact sport on NBC's "Meet the Press," died yesterday of a heart attack at age 58 after collapsing at the network's Washington bureau.

Russert's death reverberated through the worlds of journalism and politics, two arenas where his passion matched his expertise. His preparation and tenacity on "Meet the Press" made that show must-viewing inside the Beltway and beyond, and "the Russert Primary" was considered a test that presidential candidates had to pass to be considered serious contenders.

Yet however rugged the exchanges, Russert invariably ended with the same gentlemanly refrain: "Thank you for sharing your views." Paradoxical though it seemed, Russert was both feared and liked in Washington, where he was NBC's bureau chief. That was reflected in the bipartisan tributes that poured forth yesterday after Russert's death.

President Bush called Russert a "tough and hard-working newsman," who was "as gregarious off the set as he was prepared on it." Presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain called Russert "the preeminent political journalist of his generation" and "a terrific guy," while presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama called Russert "irreplaceable" and "one of the finest men I knew."

Former President Bill Clinton and Senator Hillary Clinton, whose supporters often took issue with Russert's treatment of both, said in a joint statement: "Tim had a love of public service and a dedication to journalism that rightfully earned him the respect and admiration of not only his colleagues but also those of us who had the privilege to go toe to toe with him." Senator Edward M. Kennedy alluded to the high stakes a go-round with Russert could have for a political career: "With a reasoned voice, a sharp mind, and a fair hand, Tim took the measure of every Washington official and those that sought to be one."

According to NBC, Russert was recording voice-overs for tomorrow's broadcast of "Meet the Press" when he collapsed. NBC spokeswoman Allison Gollust said last night via e-mail that the cause of death was a "sudden heart attack." Former NBC anchor Tom Brokaw announced the news on the air shortly after 3:30 p.m. Brokaw said Russert had just returned from a trip to Italy with his wife, Maureen Orth, and son, Luke, to celebrate Luke's recent graduation from Boston College.

Russert was a ubiquitous figure on television; the sight of him puzzling out the 2000 election on a whiteboard remains an indelible image of that tumultuous contest. His labors on behalf of NBC were no less prodigious in the current presidential campaign. On the day of a typical primary, a viewer could see and hear Russert just after 7 a.m. on NBC's "Today" show, all through the night on MSNBC, sometimes until after midnight, and there he would be at 7 a.m. the next morning on "Today" again. "He worked to the point of exhaustion so many weeks," Brokaw said

Guilty Pleasure movie

So, I was home making lunch and decided to change the channel from the food network (I can only watch so many of their reruns) and now that they changed the lineup in the afternoon, I can't stand it.........so anyway, I flipped thru some channels and landed on Coyote Ugly. And I was hooked and ended up watching the whole thing and of course crying and sobbing like a baby!

So at the end of the movie, "Jersey" asks her boyfriend..."What happens after all your dreams come true?" I don't know if that is a direct quote but it hit me......All my dreams have come true so what do I do now? I have the Suburban, a pool, 3 adorable boys, a loving dog, a white picket fence, I'm a stay at home mom and I have a loving and handsome husband. What more could a girl ask for? I am not saying that life is at all perfect, I get behind on bills sometimes, I'm overweight, my hair sucks and even though the kids are cute, they are not always the best behaved. But I recently read A New Earth (suggested by the queen herself, Oprah), and as simple as this may seem or even stupid sounding.....I realized that I am not unhappy. I told this to my friend Madeline the other night and she thought that it was a big statement, yea, I do too. So, I guess I have had my AHA moment (thanks again Oprah!!!) I'm not doing to bad for myself!

See, even from a silly movie like Coyote Ugly can make you think.

Drunk People (an e-mail that dad sent me) Love it!!!!!

YOU'VE GOTTA LOVE DRUNK PEOPLE


A man and his wife were awakened at 3:00 am by a loud pounding on the door. The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger,standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push.
'Not a chance,' says the husband, 'it is 3:00 in the morning!'He slams the door and returns to bed.'Who was that?' asked his wife.'Just some drunk guy asking for a push,' he answers.'Did you help him?' she asks.'No, I did not, it is 3:00 in the morning and it is pouring rain out there!''Well, you have a short memory,' says his wife. Don’t you remember about three months ago when we broke down, and those two guys helped us? I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself!'
The man does as he is told, gets dressed, and goes out into the pounding rain.
He calls out into the dark,
'Hello, are you still there?'
'Yes,' comes back the answer.'
Do you still need a push?' calls out the husband.'
Yes, please!' comes the reply from the dark.'
Where are you?' asks the husband.'

Over here on the swing,' replied the drunk.
