A little Super Bowl humor for y'all (via Jay):
A guy named Bob receives a free ticket to the Superbowl from his
Unfortunately, when Bob arrives at the stadium he realizes the seat is
in the last row in the corner of the stadium-he is closer to the
Goodyear Blimp than the field.
About halfway through the first quarter, Bob notices an empty seat 10
rows off the field right on the 50 yard line. He decides to take a
chance and makes his way through the stadium and around the security
guards to the empty seat.
As he sits down, he asks the gentleman sitting next to him, "Excuse me,
is anyone sitting here?" The man says no.
Now, very excited to be in such a great seat for the game, Bob again
inquires of the man next to him, "This is incredible! Who in their right
mind would have a seat like this at the Superbowl and not use it?"
The man replies, "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me, I was supposed
to come with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first Superbowl
we haven't been to together since we got married in 1967."
"Well, that's really sad," says Bob, "but still, couldn't you find
someone to take the seat? A relative or a close friend?"
"No," the man replies, "they're all at the funeral."
I had a great weekend, hung out with friends and went to a couple of parties. Also tinkered with the blog some. I went out in public wearing the horns, but I was going to a party and had an 'excuse'.
Things are going pretty smoothly here at work. I only got two hours sleep Saturday night so you can bet I took it easy on Sunday after I got home.
Quote of the weekend:
'Are you as high as a kite?'
'I am as high as a...Really. Fat. Pigeon.'
I am happy to report that I got some email from my good friends Mitch and Jacqueline in Switzerland. If you guys are reading this, I want to say THANKS for all the letters, cards and pictures you sent over the last year and I beg your continued patience. I will be getting some pics off to you soon so my goddaughter knows what I look like!
This is going to be a busy week! Adam is moving in and the Fuse Ball is almost upon us! I still have to get my costume together!
Anyway, I'd better get back to work...
