SASF v.1.20.6 -Insert Clever Theme Title Here-

Good Gawd. I have been so busy at work I'm starting to wonder which way is up. I'm seriously considering cloning as they obviously need two of me. gah!

...and it certainly doesn't help that my connection is poking along at a pace just above excrutiating (this is supposed to be high speed?) and my image host is moving like a turtle with hemorrhoids. double gah! grrrr grumble growl. WTF? They both usually FLY.

So, my apologies for the lateness and the fact that this is sloppily thrown together, but it's better than nothing, right? lol

Fun with Gifs

Here are some really fun .gif files that I've found recently. These little pieces of animated goodness crack me up. Feel free to steal them if you like. :D


For Pup. lol

I just love Jack. He's ace.

...but not as much as I love Legolas!

...or Napoleon! *swoon*

This is one that the ever-so-awesome Archmage made for me. Bitchin'

This is one of my all-time faves!

Then again, there's the one a little lower down in the post. Mrowr. lol

Free 411

Hate paying for directory assistance? I know I do. Check out 1-800-FREE-411!

If you call for a residential number, you'll get it for free. If you call for a business number, you may be offered competitors in the area that you are calling as well as the number that you specifically asked for.

TruthOrFiction.com made several test calls to 800 FREE-411. One of the calls resulted in a short advertisement being played over the phone shortly before they were given to the number. Others did not. When they asked for the number of their own offices in California, they were given a number that more than a year-and-a-half old so some of their databases may not be up to date. Also, the system is automated at first. You are directed by voice prompts and a couple of our calls resulted in delay because the voice system could not understand what they were saying but they were directed to a live person who was able to process the request successfully.


This guy has a very original idea for something to sell on eBay. He also obviously has way too much time on his hands. lol


The Eternal Question Answered

Why did the chicken cross the road?

We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here.

Now to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road.

We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.

Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it!

The chicken's habitat on the other side of the road had been polluted by unchecked industrial greed. The chicken did not reach the unspoiled habitat on the other side of the road because it was crushed by the wheels of a gas-guzzling SUV.

To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.

I don't know why the chicken crossed the road, but I'll bet it was getting a government grant to cross the road, and I'll bet that somebody out there is already forming a support group to help chickens with crossing-the-road syndrome. Can you believe this?!? How much more of this can real Americans take? Chickens crossing the road paid for by their tax dollars. And when I say tax dollars, I'm talking about your money, money the government took from you to build a road for chickens to cross.

No one called me to warn me which way that chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer's Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.

Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed I've not been told.

To die in the rain. Alone.

I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross roads without having their motives called into question.

In my day, we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough.

Isn't that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heartwarming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its life long dream of crossing the road.

Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing roads together - in peace.

It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

It was an historic inevitability.

To boldly go where no chicken has ever gone before.

The fact that you are at all concerned that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity.

I have just witnessed eChicken2003, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your checkbook. Internet explorer is an integral part of eChicken.

Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?

I did not cross the road with THAT chicken. What is your definition of chicken?

I invented the chicken!

And God came down from heaven, and he said unto the chicken THOU SHALT CROSS THE ROAD. And the chicken didst cross the road, and there was much rejoicing.

Did I miss one?

Thanks to Magz for the giggles!

Cool Art That Messes with Your Head

How many deer do you see?

Can you find the four people in this image?

How many horses do you see? I only see 5, but there are supposedly seven. Suddenly I'm feeling a little inadequate. lol

Keyboard Blues

Well, as I mentioned in my last post, my cat knocked over a glass and spilled milk all over my keyboard in the middle of the night. Since this little incident, several keys do not work. They aren't stuck - they just don't work. Well, one of my coworkers told me to wash it in the dishwasher as that could fix it (but don't put it through the hot dry cycle). Have any of you heard this before? Does it work?

Tatt of the Week

Is that the London Tube?? lol

Well, y'all have a mighty fine weekend. I plan on doing as little as possible!



  1. Good stuff...and enjoy your weekend!

  2. Actually, I had this problem with ice tea. The keys would stick, I had a horrible time. I took it all apart and used Mr. Clean (spray) on the insides and then let it all dry out while I went to CompUSA and bought a new keyboard.

  3. Ricky Gervais (top gif) is indeed awesome.

    I too can only see 5 horses - perhaps if we pooled our inadequacy we could come up with 7.

    The tat looks more like the London overground than the tube, with the belly ring at Kings Cross and the southbound line headed for ..... the Channel?

  4. Great Friday stuff, as always!

    And like Denny said--the keyboard's toast if the keys have failed. Go forth and find a new one. And keep the liquids well away from the computer!

    And I only see 5 horses, too...our inadequacy is catching!

  5. Love 'em, Celti. Esp. the roman column thingie. I draw that in a simplistic form when I'm doodling...

    Have a great weekend.

  6. Oooh I love the machine kitty!

    I can't find the people.
    I can't find the horses.
    I have a headache from trying.

    Where have you been Celti grrrl?

    I been looking for ya on IM.

    Let's yack!
    Oooooh, better.
    Let's have cybersex.
    Come on I hear it's fun.
    I'll do you if you do me!

  7. The monkey wasn't always evil!!!! :)

    I'm getting a little keychain of that to put in the new ride.

  8. Mike - thanks. Hope you had a good one.

    Denny - Mine didn't survive either. Thankfully, I had a spare.

    Cali - He is! I honestly don't think there are 7 horses - they're pulling our legs. The Channel..bwaahahaha!

    Spc - thanks. Yep - you're right. Toast. No kidding! That's it, damn it, there are only 5. lol

    Michael - Very Escheresque, eh? :)

    Tricia - he's my fave. I've been working my ass off! Haven't been on all weekend - the kid has taken over the computer. You naughty girl! lol

    Pup - Yes, yes he was, he just hadn't let it surface. lol
