You’ll have to wade through it for about 45 minutes, but it’s there.


Can You Believe It?

The Navy SEALs need our help! They’re conducting a fundraising drive to build a memorial to their fallen comrades.

We have officially entered into the UDT/SEAL Memorial fundraising campaign. This memorial will be dedicated to all of the Naval Special Warfare men who have sacrificed their lives over the past century.

I think I can dig up some loose change somewhere, how about you?

Another Broadcast Of…

The Jawa Report: Radio Edition!


meme……Meme……MEME!!!!!!!!!!

My DEAR friend Beth [ahem….a MEME?] got me out of laziness to respond to her meme tag. How could I refuse such a task? I mean, after all, it’s heavy-hitting, serious journalism such as this that makes me so famous, right? BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Here’s the meme: Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.

1. I have texture issues with food. Generally I’m not a picky eater, but I draw the line when people put nuts into food. Cookies, cakes, brownies, fudge, ice cream….they all have to be nut free. I can’t stand having nuts left in my mouth when the rest has melted away! EWWWWWWWWW!

2. I have a completely ridiculous fear of bugs and spiders. More so spiders, but if something has a shell and hairy looking appendages, well, forget about it. Vacuums do wonders…a motto I live by!

3. Quite the opposite of Beth, I could go to a movie theater every weekend. I LOVE the theater, the popcorn and all that. I go out of my way to check for when movies are being released…I have “movies.com” bookmarked. I have the same freakishness about when movies come out on DVD. I’m usually going to a store over lunch on Tuesdays to pick up the next new release.

4. I can remember stupid stuff like full lines from obscure songs and from movies. I know some entire segments from “Good Morning, Vietnam” as one example. But ask me what I’m doing tomorrow, and I have to look at my day planner.

5. I have to have COLD pillows in order to fall asleep. I flip my pillows at least four times a night before I fall asleep. I love summer when the A/C is on because it blows onto my pillows if I position them just right.

6. I love fresh tomatoes! In the summer, I can eat them until I have sores in my mouth and my lips become chapped from all of the acid. Salt, pepper and tomatoes….YUMMMMMY!

Okay, so I think I met the requirements of this meme. I don’t think you could get any more non-important than that, huh?


Something New On Merri Musings

Not really.


Quick Check-in, the “I’m Still Alive Edition”

I’m sure I’ve chased everyone away by not posting for so long, but wanted to send a shout out for those of you who might peek in every once in awhile. I am most definitely still alive, and have needed the time away from my blog to focus on the “real life” stuff going on. Nothing overly significant, but school, remodeling in our home, the holidays, and an extremely crazy work load have taken a priority as of late.

I’ll be honest with you as well. It’s been a bit refreshing not trying to “come up” with something to post. The whole presidential campaign has soured me a bit, there have been far too many murders, child abuse cases, and other disgusting human acts that I don’t even know where to begin. …and I don’t think the world really wants to read about the ups and downs of my bathroom remodel.

I’m sure I’ll be back to blogging at some point. I just don’t think the time is right for me just yet. Please don’t forget about me…I’ll come back, I promise!

In the mean time, those of you searching for Rachael Ray stuff seem to be quite happy…you have sustained my traffic to this site and I thank you for it! :)


Screw Super Tuesday

Listen to Jawa Radio instead!


Dear Mr. President

Jane has reprinted a letter from the father of one of the slain sailors on the USS Cole to Yemen’s President Saleh.

Chambers’ Final Term Starts In Lincoln

Now THAT’s a title to put homework off for! WOOOOOOT!

Now….back to homework!


We Interrupt This Blog….

We interrupt this blog to bring you:

…recovery from the holidays.

…a bathroom remodel.

…finals week.

…the potential verge of an illness, apparently.

I get through this week, and I will be doing a happy dance!!!


So……

….I read that the lighted ball they drop at midnight for New Year’s is going ‘green’ this year:

NEW YORK — The Times Square New Year’s Eve ball is celebrating its centennial by going green.

The star of the world-famous holiday extravaganza was revamped this year with more than 9,000 energy-efficient bulbs that use about the same amount of electricity as 10 toasters.

Philips Lighting created the light-emitting diodes specifically for the event. It says they are smaller but more than twice as bright as last year’s lights, which were a mix of more than 600 incandescent and halogen bulbs.

So, um, well….okay….but I only have one question…well, maybe a couple. They used more than 600 incandescent and halogen bulbs last year….for that ball lighting ceremony that lasts, oh, for a brief amount of time, right? Surely the bulbs all didn’t burn out. Is it truly ‘green’ to replace bulbs that could still be used the following year? What happened to the aforementioned 600+ bulbs? I’m just curious, really…someone has to know. Anyone?


Merry Christmas!



From Luke 2: 1-20

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.
