  • Ha ha! Funny stuff. My favorites:

    – Neil Armstrong first stepped on Jamie with his left foot. (We’re no longer on speaking terms because of this.)

    – Humans share about fifty percent of their DNA with Jamie! (No wonder I’ve always felt a certain unexplainable affection for them.)

    – Over 46,000 pieces of Jamie float on every square mile of ocean. (Kind of makes you want to go swimming, doesn’t it?)

    – Jamie is 984 feet tall. (I am pretty sure I was only 5’3″ as of yesterday. That’s one heck of a growth spurt.)

  • If you toss Rebecca 10000 times, she will not land heads 5000 times, but more like 4950, because her head weighs more and thus ends up on the bottom.

    …. stupid heavy head.

  • Shayne

    1. Finding Shayne on Christmas morning is believed to bring good luck. [No wonder my husband loves christmas]

    2. Peanuts and Shayne are beans! [Does that explain why I’m so gassy?]

    3. Never store Shayne at room temperature! [Uh-oh]

    4. The pharoahs of ancient Egypt wore garments made with thin threads of beaten Shayne! [Ouch!]

    5. Shayne is 1500 years older than the pyramids. [Is that why it was so hard for me to wake up this morning?]

    6. Shayne, from the movie of the same name, had green blood. [Wasn’t that movie black & white?]

    7. Shayne can grow up to three feet in a 24 hour period! [Hard to buy pants that fit!]

    8. A lump of Shayne the size of a matchbox can be flattened into a sheet the size of a tennis court. [Who knew I was so flexible?]

    9. Astronauts get taller when they are in Shayne! [No comment!]

    10. The Asteroid Belt between Mars and Jupiter is made entirely of Shayne. [Perhaps this is why I can be such a space cadet.]

    Thanks for the laugh, Gretchen!

  • Both my husband and I have 118 ridges. That explains so much. Maybe that explains why I like this blog too!

    at the image of my coworkers reading theirs! Thanks.

    Beside all other evidence/reasons for belief in God, giggles alone, especially baby giggles, do it for me.
