  1. I don't think I'd ever eaten anything orange or orange flavored and not liked it--until I tried the smoothies. I looovvvee dreamsicles and actually liked the taste of baby asprin--and this ain't either! I tried fixing it up every which way (adding a banana made it palatable), but you shouldn't have to doctor up shakes that cost this much!
  2. Very cute. You should send it in to Reader's Digest--you could get some money off comments like that!
  3. A man and a woman, who have never met before, find themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a transcontinental train. Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, the two are tired and fall asleep quickly...he in the upper bunk and she in the lower. At 1:00 a.m., he leans over and gently wakes the woman saying"Madam, I'm sorry to bother you, but would you be willing to reach into the closet to get me a second blanket? I'm awfully cold." "I have a better idea," she replies. "Just for tonight, let's pretend that we're married." Wow!, That's a great idea!!" he exclaims. "Good," she replies. "Get your own **** blanket!" After a moment of silence, he farted.
  4. The "opinions" one reminded me of what my mother said to my kindergarten teacher on my first day: "I promise not to believe everything I hear about what happens at school if you promise not to believe everything you hear about what happens at home."

    Find The State

    My brother sent me this a few months ago and I got all but 2 states. Then again, I've lived in a lot of them, and that makes a big difference!
  6. My leader told me today that yellow cake and Diet Mt Dew Code Red is really good. I'm off to try it!

    Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we're kids? If you're less than 10 years old, you're so excited about aging that you think in fractions. "How old are you?" "I'm four and a half!" You're never thirty-six and a half. You're four and a half, going on five! That's the key. You get into your teens, now they can't hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead. "How old are you?" "I'm gonna be 16!" You could be 13, but hey, you're gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life . . . you become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony . . . YOU BECOME 21 YESSSS !!! But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk. He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There's no fun now, you're Just a sour-dumpling. What's wrong? What's changed? You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you're PUSHING 40. Whoa! Put on the brakes, it's all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH 50 . . . and your dreams are gone. But wait!!! You MAKE it to 60. You didn't think you would! So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60. You've built up so much speed that you HIT 70! After that it's a day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday! You get into your 80s and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30; you REACH bedtime. And it doesn't end there. Into the 90s, you start going backwards; "I Was JUST 92." Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. "I'm 100 and a half!" May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!! HOW TO STAY YOUNG 1.Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay "them" 2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down. 3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. " An idle mind is the devil's workshop." And the devil's name is Alzheimer's. 4. Enjoy the simple things. 5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath. 6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive. 7. Surround yourself with what you love, Whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge. 8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help. 9. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is. 10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity. AND ALWAYS REMEMBER: Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
  8. Person 1: Knock Knock Person 2: Who's there? Person 1: Control freak. Now this is the part where you say control freak who!
  9. I tried this tonight with butterscotch pudding (I don't like chocolate). It tasted a little grainy--but I was wondering if it was because I used fat free cool whip. Does this work best in lite vs. fat free? We don't have "ultra low fat" here in the States.
  10. It's due to all of the hot air blowing from the politicians flapping their gums!
  11. OMG Chris, when my FIL sent this to me, that was my first thought! Do you have Empire out there? And I'd never heard the "noise" comment, but that's a great one! I've had 5 of those area codes, 3 in one house toward the end! Carmen--Giordano's stuffed pizza is my favorite--about 20 pts for one piece! I constantly have to explain that the "windy city" has nothing to do with wind!! And I don't get the joke about the jumper cables--why wouldn't you have them? Oh, and BTW, did I mention that I still know every word to The Superbowl Shuffle?
  12. This is different that my last Chicago one, and I relate to so much! You know what the phone number for Empire Carpet is! Your living room is called the "front room" (pronounced fronchroom) You don't pronounce the "s" at the end of Illinois, and you become irate at people who do. You measure distance in minutes (especially "from the city"), and everything is pretty much 15 minutes away. You have no problem spelling or pronouncing "DesPlaines." Your school classes were canceled because of the cold weather. Your school classes were canceled because of the hot weather. You've switched from heat to air conditioning in the same day. Your grocery stores don't have sacks; they have bags. You end your sentences with prepositions: "Where's my coat at?" or "If you go to the mall, I wanna go with," or "Come by and pick me up." Your idea of a great sandwich is when the meat is twice as big as the bun, it has everything on it, and a slice of dill pickle is o! n the si de. You always carry jumper cables in your car. You drink "pop," not soda or even worse "coke." You understand that I-290, I-90, I-94, and I-294 are all different highways. You know the names of the interstates: Stevenson, Kennedy, Eisenhower, Dan Ryan, and the Edens, but you call them all "expressways." You refer to anything south of I-80 as "Southern Illinois." You refer to Lake Michigan as "The Lake." You refer to Chicago as "The City." The "Super Bowl" refers to one specific game in a series of 35 played in January of 1985. No matter where you are, when you hear the term "Downtown," you immediately assume they're talking about downtown Chicago. You have two favorite football teams: The Bears, and anyone who beats the Packers! You read "The Trib." You drive to the North suburbs by taking "The Outer Drive" even though no such road exists You think 35 degrees is great weather to wash your car! You know what goes on a Chicago Style Hot Dog. You know what Chicago Style Pizza REALLY is. You know why they call Chicago "The Windy City." You understand what "lake-effect" means. You know the difference between Amtrak and Metra, and know which station they end up at. (Do note the preposition.) You ride the "L." You can distinguish among the following area codes: 847, 630, 773, 708, 312, &815. You respond to the question "Where are you from with a "side." Example:"WEST SIDE," "SOUTH SIDE," or "NORTH SIDE." You wear gym shoes, not sneakers. And, the CHICAGO CLASSIC: You have at some time in your life, used your furniture to guard your parking spot in winter.
  13. Since starting WW, I often keep some SF jello in the fridge for the times when I just want to eat. I've seen the Jello brand premade SF jello in the stores, but it's usually around $3.00. I just went to Walmart and found Hunt's SF jello for $.80 for a 4 pack (and I had coupons!). It's perfect for dessert when I pack my lunch!
  14. Donna--Laughing Cow cheese says it is swiss, but to me it doesn't taste like it. I can't stand swiss (slices), but LOVE the cow!

    I've never tried these, but have recently ordered My Daily Muffins and biscotti from the web site. I'll post back when I get them, but the reviews have been good. They are pricey, but I'll pay more for good food now that I'm eating less.
