What song do you wish would never show up on a karaoke list?
"Through The Fire" by Chaka Khan. Only Chaka can do this song true justice…..there should be a warning on the song.
"Warning: Do not attempt to sing this song at home, in public, or anywhere else that someone may hear you. May result in utter embarrassment and self humiliation"
I'd like to start the weekend off right….
In light of my book choosing earlier this week, "Skinny Women Are Evil", I'd like to share a song that I will now call "The Anthem"
Watch, Learn, and Love!
I am sooooooooooooo happy that food, in general, has no power over me. This article just sums up everything that's wrong with society now.

Here's a crazy email I received and felt the need to share, especially since we are in the midst of Hurricane Season(I love how they say it like you pick a hurricane off of a tree or something). I'll just get my supplies from stormprepare.com and relax a bit. Enjoy!
We're about to enter the peak of the
hurricane season. Any day now, you're going to turn on the TV and see a weather
person pointing to some radar blob out in the Gulf of
Mexico and making two basic meteorological points:
is no need to panic.
(2) We could all be killed.
season is an exciting time to be in Florida. If you're new to the area, you're
probably wondering what you need to do to prepare for the possibility that we'll
get hit by "the big one.''
Based on our experiences, we recommend that
you follow this simple three-step hurricane preparedness plan:
Buy enough food and bottled water to last your family for at least three
STEP 2. Put these supplies into your car.
STEP 3. Drive to
remain there until Thanksgiving.
Unfortunately, statistics show that most
people will not follow this sensible plan. Most people will foolishly stay here
We'll start with one of the
most important hurricane preparedness items:
HOMEOWNERS' INSURANCE: If
you own a home, you must have hurricane insurance.
insurance is cheap and easy to get, as long as your home meets two basic
(1) It is reasonably well-built, and
(2) It is located
Unfortunately, if your home
is located in Florida, or any other area that might actually be hit by a
hurricane, most insurance companies would prefer not to sell you hurricane
insurance, because then they might be required to pay YOU money, and that is
certainly not why they got into the insurance business in the first
So you'll have to scrounge around for an insurance company, which
will charge you an annual premium roughly equal to the replacement value of your
house. At any moment, this company can drop you like used dental
Since Hurricane Andrew, I have had an estimated 27 different
home-insurance companies. This week, I'm covered by the Bob and Big Stan
Insurance Company, under a policy which states that, in addition to my premium,
Bob and Big Stan are entitled, on demand, to my kidneys.
house should have hurricane shutters on all the windows, all the doors, and —
if it's a major hurricane — all the toilets. There are several types of
shutters, with advantages and disadvantages:
Plywood shutters: The
advantage is that, because you make them yourself, they're cheap. The
disadvantage is that, because you make them yourself, they will fall
Sheet-metal shutters: The advantage is that these work well, once
you get them all up. The disadvantage is that once you get them all up, your
hands will be useless bleeding stumps, and it will be December.
shutters: The advantages are that they're very easy to use, and will definitely
protect your house. The disadvantage is that you will have to sell your house to
pay for them.
"Hurricane-proof'' windows: These are the newest wrinkle in
hurricane protection: They look like ordinary windows, but they can withstand
hurricane winds! You can be sure of this, because the salesman says so.
lives in Nebraska.
"Hurricane Proofing Your
Property: As the hurricane approaches, check your yard for movable objects like
barbecue grills, planters, patio furniture, visiting relatives, etc.; you
should, as a precaution, throw
these items into your swimming pool (if you
don't have a swimming pool, you should have one built immediately). Otherwise,
the hurricane winds will turn these objects into deadly
EVACUATION ROUTE: If you live in a low-lying area, you should
have an evacuation route planned out. (To determine whether you live in a
low-lying area, look at your driver's license; if it says "Florida" you live in a
low-lying area.) The purpose of having an evacuation route is to avoid being
trapped in your home when a major storm hits. Instead, you will be trapped in a
gigantic traffic jam several miles from your home, along with two hundred
thousand other evacuees. So, as a bonus, you will not be
HURRICANE SUPPLIES: If you don't evacuate, you will need a mess
of supplies. Do not buy them now! Florida tradition requires that you wait until
the last possible minute, then go to the supermarket and get into vicious fights
with strangers over who gets the last can of SPAM.
In addition to food
and water, you will need the following supplies:
23 flashlights. At least
$167 worth of batteries that turn out, when the power goes out, to be the wrong
size for the flashlights.
Bleach. (No, I don't know what the bleach is
for. NOBODY knows what The bleach is for. But it's traditional, so GET
A 55-gallon drum of underarm deodorant.
A big knife that
you can strap to your leg. (This will be useless in a hurricane, but it looks
A large quantity of raw chicken, to placate the alligators. (Ask
anybody who went through Andrew; after the hurricane, there WILL be irate
$35,000 in cash or diamonds so that, after the hurricane
passes, you can buy a generator from a man with no discernible teeth.
course these are just basic precautions. As the hurricane draws near, it is
vitally important that you keep abreast of the situation by turning on your
television and watching TV reporters in rain slickers standing right next to the
ocean and tell you over and over how vitally important it is for everybody to
stay away from the ocean.
