SPOOKY!

I'm pretty sure I would wet my pants if this thing was chasing me.  Clever prank... cruel, but clever.


Comedian Tom Mabe and a friend built this flying reaper to spook people. Little did they know how successful their device would be.

The reaper was attached to a small helicopter device and, when airborne, is nearly silent.

STAR WARS BLOOPERS


Somebody recently discovered some extremely rare footage of bloopers and outtakes from the original Star Wars films.  Thanks to the power of the internet, these old bloopers are now on YouTube for everybody to see.  Some of the scenes don't have any audio and only basic visual effects.  The best part is seeing how clumsy the StormTroopers are in the armor.

Enjoy:

NEVER AGAIN!!

Keith Urban was on Ellen yesterday talking about how he and Nicole stay connected when they can’t be together.  Ellen got him to admit that, on occasion, they have been known to send a sexy text or two with pictures.  Hmmm.
 
Here is why I will NEVER do that…again.  About 6 years ago Mike begged me to send him one of THOSE pictures.  He just wanted it on his phone for some reason.  So, I did.
 
We went to a Cloudcroft Bears football game that October and Mike lost his phone.  He went up to a Sheriff’s deputy and reported it missing.  The next day, they called him to tell him they had found it.  When we went to pick it up, I ducked down in the back seat so they couldn’t see me!  I just knew they had looked at THAT picture!! 
 
Well, I immediately deleted THAT picture and I have never sent him another one.  I really should have known better.  I also drive really carefully in Cloudcroft so I won’t get stopped by the Sherriff.

I DID IT!

I did it!  It took me a solid week to get my closet totally cleared of excess and organized!  My goal was to have it all fit into the wardrobe my cousin in Scotland uses.  I found it needed to be done in three stages. 
 
The first stage was discussed in my blog on Tuesday.  Clearing out what didn’t fit, etc.  The second stage was a bit harder.  It involved clearing out the odds and ends that were never going to work with my lifestyle, my coloring, or my age.  This stage was a bit more brutal because it required me to be truly honest with myself (something I try to avoid at all costs).
 
Stage three was putting it all together.  I made sure that every piece of clothing worked in an outfit (I admit, I did a little shopping to fill in some holes.)  But I managed to whittle it all down from 4 long racks of clothes to the two you see pictured.
 
The best thing about simplifying something like your closet, is that it inspires you to simplify other areas of your home!  I cleaned out other closets in the house (guest rooms) and moved on to the garage on Sunday!  We can now pull the truck into the garage AND get around it and through the door!  I have many, many sore muscles but they are forgotten every time I walk into my closet or garage!
