Superbowl Party

In about 5 minutes, Jody, Liam and I will head to our neighbor's house for this years Superbowl party! The Superbowl (for my international readers) is the final match in the National Football League. Tonight the Chicago Bears go head to head with the Indianapolis Colts. There may be marital strife in our house tonight as Jody is going for the Bears.... because she has family in Chicago, and I'm going for the Colts, because I like the quarterback!!! In preparation, I only made one side of the bed this morning...... (my side, because the colts will win), the looser will be sleeping outside in the 17 degree (F) weather :)
Anyways, I love superbowl parties because we eat pizza and chilli, watch the game and laugh at the million dollar commercials! Good times!!

My New Camera


Jody and I have been saving for a while to buy ourselves a new digital SLR camera. Today I finally made the purchase of this baby. 4.5/5 stars across the board!! I'm very excited. So if you see Jody or I walking around with this camera around our neck or pointed in your face..... just pose, we'll snap then move on :)

Photography is a small hobby of ours...... I'll post some of our masterpieces as we snap them.

Darwin Awards

Yes, it's that magical time of the year again when the Darwin Awards

are bestowed, honoring the least evolved among us. Here then, is the

glorious winner.


1. When his 38-caliber revolver failed to fire at his intended victim

during a hold-up in Long Beach, California, would-be robber James

Elliot did something that can only inspire wonder. He peered down the

barrel and tried the trigger again. This time it worked.....


And now, the Honorable Mentions:


2. The chef at a hotel in Switzerland lost a finger in a meat-cutting

machine and, after a little hopping around, submitted a claim to his

insurance company. The company expecting negligence sent out one of its

men to have a look for himself. He tried the machine and lost a finger.

The chef's claim was approved.


3. A man who shoveled snow for an hour to clear a space for his car

during a blizzard in Chicago returned with his vehicle to find a woman

had taken the space. Understandably, he shot her.


4. After stopping for drinks at an illegal bar, a Zimbabwean bus

driver found that the 20 mental patients he was supposed to be

transporting from Harare to Bulawayo had escaped. Not wanting to admit

his incompetence, the driver went to a nearby bus stop and offered

everyone waiting there a free ride. He then delivered the passengers to

the mental hospital, telling the staff that the patients were very

excitable and prone to bizarre fantasies. The deception wasn't

discovered for 3 days.


5. An American teenager was in the hospital recovering from serious

head wounds received from an oncoming train. When asked how he received

the injuries, the lad told police that he was simply trying to see how

close he could get his head to a moving train before he was hit.


6. A man walked into a Louisiana Circle-K, put a $20 bill on the

counter, and asked for change. When the clerk opened the cash drawer,

the man pulled a gun and asked for all the cash in the register, which

the clerk promptly provided. The man took the cash from the clerk and

fled, leaving the $20 bill on the counter. The total amount of cash he

got from the drawer...$15.

(If someone points a gun at you and gives you money, is a crime

committed?)


7. Seems an Arkansas guy wanted some beer pretty badly. He decided

that he'd just throw a cinderblock through a liquor store window, grab

some booze, and run. So he lifted the cinderblock and heaved it over

his head at the window. The cinderblock bounced back and hit the

would-be thief on the head, knocking him unconscious. The liquor store

window was made of Plexiglas. The whole event was caught on videotape.


8. As a female shopper exited a New York convenience store, a man

grabbed her purse and ran. The clerk called 911 immediately, and the

woman was able to give them a detailed description of the snatcher.

Within minutes, the police apprehended the snatcher. They put him in

the car and drove back to the store. The thief was then taken out of

the car and told to stand there for a positive ID. To which he replied,

"Yes, officer, that's her. That's the lady I stole the purse from."


9. The Ann Arbor News crime column reported that a man walked into a

Burger King in Ypsilanti, Michigan, at 5 a.m., flashed a gun, and

demanded cash. The clerk turned him down because he said he couldn't

open the cash register without a food order. When the man ordered onion

rings, the clerk said they weren't available for breakfast. The man,

frustrated, walked away.


A 5-STAR STUPIDITY AWARD WINNER!

10. When a man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked

on a Seattle street, he got much more than he bargained for. Police

arrived at the scene to find a very sick man curled up next to a motor

home near spilled sewage. A police spokesman said that the man admitted

to trying to steal gasoline and plugged his siphon hose into the motor

me's sewage tank by mistake. The owner of the vehicle declined to

press charges, saying that it was the best laugh he'd ever had.
