Old, Slightly Rude, Joke

An attractive blonde from Cork , Ireland , arrived at the casino. She seemed a little intoxicated and bet twenty thousand dollars in a single roll of the dice.

She said, "I hope you don't mind, but I feel much luckier when I'm completely nude." with that, she stripped from the neck down, rolled the dice and with an Irish brogue yelled, "Come on, baby, Mama needs new clothes!"

As the dice came to a stop, she jumped up and down and squealed... "Yes! Yes! I won, I won!"  She hugged each of the dealers, picked up her winnings and her clothes and quickly departed.

The dealers stared at each other dumbfounded.

Finally, one of them asked, "What did she roll?" The other answered, "I don't know - I thought you were watching."


Not all Irish are drunks, not all blondes are dumb..... But all men...Are men!

Rita Hayworth and her co-stars are staying alive in our memories!

This is absolutely outstanding.

Most of the people in the clip were deceased before the Bee Gee’s recorded “Stayin’ Alive.” Whether you are a Bee Gee's or Rita Hayworth fan or not...you are going to love this! It shows one thing and that is: the music may change, but the moves are timeless.

A great job of putting clips together with the music.


Buffy Season 1

debris4spike: (Buffy - season 1)
At long last I am getting round to watching the rest of season 1 of BtVS.  I started it some time ago, but ground to a halt just after the episode "Angel" ... I wonder why!!!!!  Anyway, having posted some Spike icons yesterday I need to get back to watching so that I can get to "School Hard"!

So yesterday and today I watched a couple of episodes ... "Nightmares" and "Out of Mind, Out of Sight".

Both of which are good ... but hard to watch, for me.

We all have our Nightmares, and for most of us, they are recurring.  So watching an episode where they come into rl makes me wonder how I would cope with those heartaches in reality ... and all of a sudden it seems easier to leave my fears to me dreams.

In the show it also reminded me that the things I fear are not the same as the worries of others.  In the episode some fears seemed funny to their friends, but fears and terrors are real.  Dad always teases me that I can run away from a tiny spider, yet I will make friends with a horse ... to him, horses are bigger than him, and therefore he can't cope with the idea.  On that note I must admit my eyes were tightly closed when Wendel was having his spiders roaming around ... I am that freaked out!

Out of Mind, Out of Sight is probably the hardest of all the BtVS episodes (of all 7 seasons) to watch.  I almost missed it out ... seeing the scenes of Marcie being ignored brought home too many memories.  I can totally understand the feeling of being invisible, and the wish to become so.  School life is hard on us all, but some people do get lost in this way.  I left school in 1979, and still that episode makes me feel that I am still wearing my uniform.

I didn't join a spy school, though ... LJ has helped me to find friends ... and maybe to put some of those "nightmares" away ... although never to truly escape them.

A couple of weeks ago I saw a Buffy Survey on [livejournal.com profile] joans_journal ... so thought I would snag and add to this short post.

[livejournal.com profile] curiouswombat has reminded me (us) that it is mass observation day on May 12th this year.

It is a day when we can scribble about our "normal" day ... and the records are kept for the future.

I said last year that I would do it, and never did - so this year I am determined to make the effort.

More details can be found here ... so look out for the diary of my day!

debris4spike: (James - I'm a fan)
... Well, I suppose none of you fall into that category.

But if you had any doubts as to why I follow his career, then you should watch Warehouse 13 (4:11).  The first time I saw James act it was season 7 Spike, and I still think he stepped off the TV screen and straight into my heart!

Watching him on Warehouse 13 (not a show I know at all), made me remember again what a great, and fun, actor he truly is.  I also loved the fact that he was able to tease one of the characters about his large forehead (Angel, where are you?), and laughed off vampires as the heroes of Gothic stories, and teenage girls dreams.  Add to that, he managed to find yet another brilliant exit ... brilliant writing, brilliant acting ... great fun.

And, if anyone doesn't know what to do with "that" painting, I can find a space on my wall, very easily!

I so wish that he could get his own show ... he so, so deserves it.

This set of icons is for round 10 of [livejournal.com profile] history20in20 .... and my theme is WWI ... as I posted last week some of the images are photos of the family.

Anyway, here are my 3 teasers -

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

98 years ago ... war and conflict still exist, but let us hope that we remember the friendship and love that these soldiers shared ... the suffering they endured ... and the loss of life.

Praying that we will stand for a minute and pray for peace ... around the world, and for those who suffer today due to on-going conflicts.

debris4spike: (Soldier - silhouette)
So here I am again - and as someone asked how the latest dental appointment went I thought I would scribble a post, in case anyone else is keeping up with this epic saga, that is taking longer than "Gone with the Wind"

I have finished the penicillin ... for which I am sure my tummy will be thankful (!), and had more "gunk" inserted in the hole. It was very sore ... so that was annoying. The dentist said I still have a red patch on the inside of my cheek, and on the roof of my mouth. She now wants me to leave it and hopes by Monday it will be finished ... if not ... back for more tests and treatment.

I had a short shift at work today which was nice as I got some actual housework done ... although I also ended up having a snooze when I sat down for a cuppa mid afternoon! (Blaming the pills, not old age!)

I have also uploaded some photos on my pc which are for some icons I am making ... as my theme is WWI.

So wondered if you wanted to see my family (mostly on Mum's side) ....

My family during WWI )

Hope you are all having a good day.

A pencil maker told the pencil 5 important lessons just before putting it in the box :

1.) Everything you do will always leave a mark

2.) You can always correct the mistakes you make.

3.) What is important is what is inside of you.

4.) In life , you will undergo painful sharpenings, which will only make you better.

5.) To be the best pencil, you must allow yourself to be held and guided by the hand that holds you.

We all need to be constantly sharpened. This parable may encourage you to know that you are a special person, with unique God-given talents and abilities. Only you can fulfil the purpose which you were born to accomplish.

Never allow yourself to get discouraged and think that your life is insignificant and cannot be changed and, like the pencil, always remember that the most important part of who you are, is what's inside of you and then allow yourself to be guided by the hand of God.

debris4spike: (St Georges Day)
Here's hoping that you defeat the dragons and have roses all the way.


This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,--
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.

                             William Shakespeare, "King Richard II", Act 2 scene 1.

debris4spike: (Voyager)
This set of icons is done for Round 45 of [livejournal.com profile] startrek20in20 ... and this time the theme was an episode one. The episode I chose was "Before & After" from season 3 of Voyager. I always love episodes that take the history of the show and change it around totally.

Here are my 3 teasers -

Another Week!

debris4spike: (Boo)
Sorry - I have been MIA quite a bit recently ... I will try to do better.

It makes sense, I suppose though, when you realise (as I said on Friday) I am now on my third lot of antibiotics, and that doesn't include the local treatment applications in the cavity. I have to go again to the dentist tomorrow, and hopefully that will be the end of it. One month today and I still have an actual hole left, although it is slowly healing.

The weekend was hectic - I spent Saturday cleaning the house in the morning, and gardening in the afternoon. Mum helped for about an hour, which was good to see her actually doing some physical work again. Her apathy has been hard to watch over the last year. On Sunday, after Church, I spent the afternoon helping Dad with his book. He is on the final (hopefully) read-through and the closer he got to the end, the more stressed he was, and that really affected his Alzheimer's. So, Mum volunteered me to read it to Dad, and check full-stops and commas as I went. We got about half of the 95 pages done, so I was really pleased.

Now it's Monday, and I only worked this morning ... now I am trying to catch up (if I missed anything in the last days/weeks) please let me know.

I have icons to make, and am watching Dr Who on the I-Player as I type this. So at least I am doing some catching up!


Happy Birthday -

I hope that you had a great day yesterday, despite the sadness in Texas.

Wishing you a truly wonderful year ahead.

God Bless

debris4spike: (Ow - look of shock on face)
The dentist!

Yes, you read that correctly - and I have to go again next week ... and I'm on my 3rd lot of antibiotics!

Yes the wound started to settle ... but that's as far as it went.  So I have the infection still there and getting worse - so I have antibiotics in the wound, and more to add next week .. as well as more penicillin tabs.

btw, for those who have lost track, it was 4 weeks ago today I lost the tooth!
