Chinese Laundry

Subject: Chinese Laundry

A woman was unhappy with the way her laundry was done at the local Chinese Laundry, so she wrote a note and put it in the bag with the next collection of soiled clothes :


She got the clean laundry back, and was still dissatisfied with the results, so the following week she enclosed another note:


The Chinese laundryman became very annoyed, and when her clean laundry was delivered, it contained a note from HIM:


Good Thoughts

The Mayonnaise Jar and 2 Cups of Coffee

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 cups of coffee.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was. The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an unanimous "yes." The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed."Now," said the professor as the laughter subsided, "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things---God, your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions---and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car. The sand is everything else---the small stuff. "If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, "there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you." Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first---the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend."

Will You Give??

Will You Give??

Dear friends: I have the distinguished honor of being on the committee to raise $5,000,000 for a monument to George W. Bush . We originally wanted to put him on Mt. Rushmore until we discovered there was not enough room for two faces.

We then decided to erect a statue of George W in the Washington, D.C. Hall Of Fame. We were in a quandary as to where the statue should be placed. It was not proper to place it beside the statue of George Washington, who never told a lie, or beside Richard Nixon, who never told the truth, since George could never tell the difference.

We finally decided to place it beside Christopher Columbus, the greatest Republican of them all. He didn't know where he was going, and when he got there he did not know where he was. He returned not knowing where he had been, destroyed the well-being of the majority of the population while he was there, and did it all on someone else's money.

Thank you. George W. Bush Monument Committee

(so far we have collected $1.35)

The Dawn-Key Diet

The Dawn-key Diet , it works!

A friend of mine, who's a nurse, talked to me about the Atkins Diet, Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, and the latest of course, The South Beach Diet. Since she's a nurse, and done a lot of study and research on dieting, I truly think she has found the real answer to weight loss:

The Dawn-Key Diet:

God Created The World

God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day. He inquired of God. "Where have youbeen?"

God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction, and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."

Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"

"It's a planet," replied God, "and I've put Life on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a great place>of balance."

"Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm still confused." God explained, pointing to different parts of earth.

"For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over there I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things," God continued pointing to different countries. "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."

The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, "What's that one?"

"Ah," said God "That's Washington State, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, plains, and coulees. The people from Washington State are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to be found traveling the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats, and carriers of peace."

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance."

God smiled, "There is another Washington. Wait till you see the idiots I put there."

Also, this weekend was fun, Tom came over and hung out with my family while I was slaving away at work, but then I got home and they were all playing Pictionary, and so I joined in. He stayed the night, it was nice, and we spent the rest of Sunday together. We have to book our Hotel this week for Chicago. Well I don't think we have to, but we just want to make sure we have one when we get down there thats all.

Lasting Winter

WOW, I haven't posted in a really long time. Sorry to everyone. Things have been a little crazy. Well to update, heh nothing really big has been happening. Last weekend, Tom got a cat. He's a long haired male, two years old, and I could not stop sneezing. I love cats, and heh they love me, but not my allergies. So my mom is going to help out with my perscriptions. I need them, Its not just the cat, or dogs, its air in general. I thought they were gone. . .heh yeah right.

But anyways. The school week is almost over with, less then two months to go. I can't wait for spring break though, cause Tom and I are going down to Chicago, its going to be awesome. Sooo much fun.

But I can't wait for St. Patricks Day, I had to ask it off for school which is the main reason, but there is this band called Songs of the Lake, Tom really likes them, and they are playing at a bar that night, so we will have to go. I think it would really fun. I ripped the poster off from the local grocery store, so I can show him tonight. Heh.
