Leslie's Omnibus


Happy birthday to blog buddy El Capitan!

Some Blogthings, because I can never resist:

You Are a Heart

Your life philosophy can be summed up as, "Love like you've never been hurt."

Your greatest wish is to have harmony in all of your relationships.

You can't help loving people, even when they're incredibly flawed.

You are a true romantic, and you are willing to give almost anyone a second chance.

(A tip of the cap to Sourpuss.)

You Are Most Like Charlotte!

You are the ultimate romantic idealist

You've been hurt before, but that hasn't caused you to give up on love.

If anything, your resolve to fall in love is stronger than ever.

And it's this feminine optimism that men find most appealing about you.

Romantic prediction: That guy you are seeing (or crushing on)?

Could be very serious - if you play your cards right!


This one reminds me of Tammi, whose birthday I missed this week:

You Are Bare Feet

You are a true free spirit, and you can't be tied down.

Even wearing shoes can be a little too constraining for you at times!

You are very comfortable in your own skin.

You are one of the most real people around. You don't have anything to hide.


Not a Blogthing, but just as interesting:

I am 33% White Trash.
Not Too White Trashy
The white trash in my blood will not keep me from becoming a doctor or a lawyer, but it will keep me from a good haircut and any sort of fashion sense.

Blame this one on Pammy.

You know, for someone who the media heaped praise on when he was running against Hillary, they sure are piling on Obama now:
Barack Obama has long been his party's presumptive nominee. Now he's becoming its presumptuous nominee.

You know, I kind of wondered about this myself, but shook it off as the kind of conspiracy theory that only nutballs, loons and wingnuts believe are true. Looks like maybe it's not so nutty a theory.

Leave it to Chicago's aldermen to once again consider using a sledge hammer when a flyswatter would do just fine:

Burke and Rugai say their proposal would not only cut down on the number of strays roaming city streets, but would protect residents from "random, unprovoked attacks by overly aggressive animals."

Rugai, in particular, sees the measure as a way to cut down on pit-bull attacks, one of her longtime concerns.

Chicago. Gotta love it.

Giggle of the Day:

more cat pictures

Enough, already! You'd think people would be smart enough to know not to walk and text as they're crossing the street, but, noooooooooooooo. That doesn't mean, however, that we need to have new legislation banning the practice. Ugh. You can't legislate smarts.

ROFLMFAO over that cat photo!!!
Holy cow!
I think I peed my self over that picture!!
Ok, some how I knew the answer to one of your quizzes:

"For you, dating is the ultimate sport
You're into guys with power, looks, or a lot of money.
You rather have a great two weeks than a great forever.
But even you fall victim to love from time to time. :-)

Romantic prediction: You'll find love in the next few months...

But you'll be the last one to realize it. "

Doubt that last few lines since I'm happily married.

Love, "you can't legislate smarts". How true, how true. :-)

Leslie, I love gettin' on the bus, but is there some way you can go into your options and opt for an Atom feed, or some sort of rss feed?

I'm a slave to google reader, and when a blog can't show up on it, it gets overlooked for days on end. I hate missing things around here!
