Gawd my cat is being a bitch.
as much as I love Lady Gaga
I gotta admit, she’s not the greatest dancer! I’m watching the Grammy Nominations Concert, and she was the opening act.

thelifeofmaggie: I just saw a post using the word “persyn.” “Persyn” is not a word. I get that it’s supposed to be a gender neutral of “person” because “son” is all manly, but words don’t work like that. “Person” comes from the Latin word personae, referring to characters in a play. A Christian theologian was the first to use it as it’s used today, as a reference to an individual. “Son” comes...

My father left when I was 5 (oldest of four kids at the time). I know what it’s like to depend on the kindness of strangers for Christmas. I was thinking a gift card to Best Buy.

Watchin’ American TV? 8) Hehe, funny man. They’re a “flavour” of burger, so good! Basically burgers with mozzarella cheese, green peppers, and onions mixed right into them.

one of the best things about visiting my parents house is the food. I always get real dinners.
ridewithmeb4by replied to your post: My Christmas sponsor mom finally called me back,… That kind of leaves out the 16 year-old. I know, but according to the Mom this is more important for the learning and such with the little ones and the 16 year old doesn’t really care. I’m hoping we can still get a little something for him; it kind of depends on how much money we spend on...
My Christmas sponsor mom finally called me back, and got that all straightened out. But after some discussion we decided to not buy a bunch of gifts for them and instead buy them one expensive gift, a Leappad. Do you know how hard thos things are to find? They’re sold out everywhere, even online, and even on eBay the auction price of them is way up over retail! Wal-Mart is the cheapest, I...

Joe Filliponi started the club on Seymour street in 1947. The fire was put out early enough to save the club, a bit of cleaning and renovating and it will be fine. Can’t lose a landmark like that!

I thought that sponsoring a family for a Christmas Hamper with food and presents would be a good way to give back to someone who needed it this holiday season. Turns out it’s just really frustrating. We’ve gotten the majority of the food, and bought almost all the presents based on the family’s application. One problem? Can’t get in touch with the family. I have phoned five...
