Qué tristeza me da… Realmente es una gran pérdida. El único comentario que me sacó una sonrisa fue el man que sugirió que el viejo Joe sacara a Amy Winehouse a bailar salsa… Al menos ninguno de los dos sufre ya de nada.

Sad face. 😦

“Te fuiste a encontrar con TANIA, a formar tu REBELION a otra parte, te fuiste como EL CAMINANTE, ahora eres tú EL AUSENTE, viviste NOCHES DE ARREBOLES, te llevaste tu CARA DE PAYASO, AY PAPÁ .. PAPA… aunque LA NOCHE esté triste, serás siempre el CENTURIÓN DE LA NOCHE, porque FUE TU MIRADA la que se apagó, pero es ese recuerdo el que hace saber que TU VOLVERAS, volverás porque aquí se queda tu JoeSón…”

Gratitude

April 29, 2011

Take 90 seconds and consider how your words shape your world.  We can all use a reminder to be compassionate and to cultivate gratitude.

After yesterday’s gruesome fowl-related post, today I thought it would be nice to share something more uplifting in relation to our feathered friends. La Billi shared this with me via email today. What a fun story!

I waited around in the Department of Licensing office all afternoon, and when I finally got up to the counter, they told me that I couldn’t carry out any business on the cars since they are in Fernando’s name. This video was the perfect crankiness antidote.

These two grannies are super cute, and I especially love how they giggle like little kids. Makes me grin and miss my own grandma, she would have gotten a kick out of this.

T-Mobile Welcome Back

November 10, 2010

This has been flying all over the interwebz for days, but it makes me grin each and every time. And the sheer celebratory energy in all those harmonized voices makes me tear up, too. Well, only a little.

Bonus: Reactions from the public. I want to be an International Flight-Greeter! Think they are hiring at Sea-Tac?

Hold out to the end: Sadly, he may be right…

WTF of the day#2

June 17, 2010

Holy crap, I was premature in posting the toothpaste video, because I hadn’t seen this yet. It appears that this is actually based on a national report, but I’ve never heard of this ridiculous notion, or heard anyone say they thought this was true. Have you? WTF?!?!

I guess there’s a website.

If you don’t want hubby to cheat, Pat recommends “making yourself as attractive as possible” and not to “start hassling him.”

Gross. Hard to believe this prehistoric-minded program is still broadcasting. And even scarier to consider that this guy’s net worth is estimated to be between $200 million and a $1 billion dollars.

Ya casi…

May 17, 2010

mi ex-gordito esta por llegar de Colombia – el avion ya va pasando Nebraska! 😀

Very exciting news: Turns out my duck-lips hottie Natasha K isn’t the only one who wants a shot at romance with me.

Another super-romantic missive arrived today from a self-described “usual woman:”

I greet you

I am a usual woman, but you will never regret if we start communication.
I am a strong, serious and persistent lady, but I am a very sensitive, romantic, sincere, kindhearted and open lady at the same time. I am not sitting at home enjoying my loneliness: I prefer an active life style.
I like communicating with my friends, going out and visiting some interesting place, as well as reading a nice book or watching a good movie. I am looking for a tender friend who can save me from loneliness and become my true partner in life. Even if you are not the man of my life I am sure we can derive much pleasure and positive experience from our communication and meeting each other. I do not care whether you are age or Status, whether your position in the society is high etc., I am looking for understanding http://www.yougottabekidding.LOL/finalylove/

See you later
Julian

I’m sure she felt such haste to find me–her media naranja, her other half–that she didn’t bother to finish typing out all the letters in her name, which surely must be “Juliana” or “Julianne.” Or something.

This stuff cracks me up. Sometimes I think it’s too bad I’m married. And/or not interested in dating women. I received this email today, from “Natasha K.”

Aloha

You will have my heart…”Forever To Hold”…
You will never find a love so true, as the undying love I have for you. Ask me to give my life, I will. Ask me to bare my soul I’ll do it. I will do anything that you will ask. I will give everything, if I will be able to do just this. You will be the stars, the moon and the trees, the song of the wind, wonderful and beautiful and everything at once. I want to be that for you.
I will give you the things that you will give me. It will be like a fairy tale… a fantasy, a miracle… a magic… a destiny.
You and I will be tagged by love unexpectedly… irresistibly, undeniable… this will be our love story http://www.yougottabekiddingme.LOL/flirt/

Warm hugs
Natasha K.

Natasha is obviously Hawaiian, since she writes ‘Aloha’ by way of salutation. She emailed me from the email address “enriqueg@apmhomeloans.com” – I’m sure there is a good explanation for this. Probably that Natasha is good friends with Enrique, and as a favor to her, he allowed her to use his work email account to send out some love letters to me and at least two other people whose email addresses appear in the “To:” line.

Their email addresses are *very* similar to mine, which is truly touching–after all, this demonstrates that Natasha was serious about making sure her letter reached me. So serious, in fact, that she even made allowances for potentially misspelling my email address. Also, I have a fine parcel of oceanfront land with a harbor view for sale near Tempe, in case anyone is interested.

*BTW, I purposefully didn’t include the spammy URL when I copied Natasha’s sugary-sweet letter above. You’re welcome.

Condom use = More action

February 13, 2010

So God might hate you if you use condoms, but at least you’ll be popular with the ladies! At least that is the message in this great AIDS-awareness PSA. I loved the animation! (NSFW, BTW.)

February morning

February 9, 2010

“Just imagine a motor attached to a person’s appendage. That’s what you’re effectively doing when you are engaging with her. So it’s a very erotic experience.” Whoa. WTF?!?!
Here’s another one you just have to see to believe. As for me, I’m going to need some eye bleach after the close-up of that thing’s mouth…

I heart Trenita

December 18, 2009

I know this is super old, but I just saw this again and can’t help but share the fun with you:

Que viva Trenita!

I stumbled across this somewhere on the net, and it’s hilarious in spite of its serious subject matter. The stick person drawings are brilliant!
Hear the song here (warning: music starts automatically)! No vulgarity or nudity, but maybe NSFW.

Be careful while you’re keeping warm the fun way on those cold nights, kids!
