  3. Hey, is that a Festivus pole that Santa's holding??
  4. Wishing a very happy birthday to a terrific musician and an even nicer guy. All the best.
  5. In honor of Steve's birthday yesterday, took him to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex. Due to limited seating in the theatre, tickets are time stamped. You must be ready to enter the museum within 15 minutes of your appointed time. Like the Hall in Cleveland, no photography or recording devices are allowed. First you enter a room that has metal bricks with the signatures of all the inductees. Small music vignettes are played from several inductees. Whenever that group's music is played, their brick lights up. Pretty cool. Something I found particularly interesting is that each of the 4 Tops only signed their first name. We also got a laugh out of Prince's brick having his actual name instead of that symbol he was using for a while. Next you go into a small theatre where you're shown a short video about the history of rock n roll. Since we were seated in back of the theatre, at one point we were part of the video! When you exit the theatre, you are given headsets which allows you to take a self-guided tour throughout the exhibit. It's a pretty decent collection. Items on display that stood out in my mind include Bruce Springsteen's first car (along with the insurance card!), a suit worn by Buddy Holly, a Beatles drumhead, one of Elvis' jumpsuits, a pair of Elton John eyeglasses, the jacket worn by Michael Jackson during the recording of "We Are the World." Of course being a New Yorker, I especially enjoyed the momentos from now defunct clubs. The sign from the Bottom Line is there as well as the awning from CBGB. The entire tour takes about 1-1/2 hours. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were pleasantly surprised that tipping is not permitted at the coat check. We enjoyed ourselves much more than we thought we would. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area.
  6. Picture the job interview at Dominos. A guy walks in, fills out the job application & says, "the name's Bond. James Bond."
  7. Delores, the leader of the Brooklyn Soapmaking Meetup, came up with the idea of donating our handmade soaps & toiletries to a shelter for battered women.
  8. Hey! You got something against da Bronx?????
  9. LOL. I always tell everyone there are two rules of marriage. 1) The wife is always right 2) See rule #1

    - Our 10 year old niece who tells me she doesn't think I'm old or fat. - The sound of our rattling pipes when it's cold in the apartment; it means the heat is coming up. - Getting mail that doesn't say "pay this amount" on it. - Having a working elevator in our building. - Getting email that isn't for a male enhancement product.
  13. Gezundheit! Along those lines, when G-d sneezes, what do you say to Him/Her?
  14. OMG! I'm LMAO picturing "Under My Thumb" as a lullaby. I personally would love to hear "I Wanna Be Sedated" & "Baby Got Back" as lullabies. Nothing like singing "I like big butts..." to a baby.
  15. If excessive flatulence is a crime, I know a few people that would be put away for life with no chance of parole.
  16. Hey, they don't call me The Scent Lady for nuthin'! I'd love to hear a tape of how the call came in. "Calling all cars. Calling all cars. Be on the lookout for a male 12 year old with excessive flatulence. Suspect is carrying a concealed weapon and considered dangerous." :rolleyes:
  17. Imagine the chatter in the prison. Prisoner #1: What are you in for? Prisoner #2: Murder. What are you in for? Prisoner #1: Dope dealing. Hey kid, what they get you for? Trying to shake down some kids for milk money? Kid: No. I got busted for farting too much in class. Saturday Night Live is going to have a field day with this one. Or maybe they'll do a Law & Order "ripped from the headlines" based on this.
  18. Touche! But at least I can pronounce the word "nuclear," can come up with the names of a couple of magazines and newspapers (whether I read them or not) and didn't have to attend four colleges to earn my B.A.
  19. She was running for the second highest position in the United States and she couldn't name ANY other Supreme Court decisions except Roe v. Wade?? She couldn't name a SINGLE newspaper or magazine she reads?? The Constitution of the United States guarantees freedom of speech and freedom of the press. While Palin didn't name any specific books, she "rhetorically" [cough] asked a librarian about how one would go about getting books banned. A few weeks later, the librarian gets fired. Palin says it has nothing to do with the ban incident. Yeah, right. If you believe that, I've got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.I stand by MY opinion of Palin.
  20. Who obviously didn't pay any attention in class or else she'd know that Africa is a CONTINENT. Most GRADE SCHOOL children know this. This is the person you want as second in command??? You can't do any better than someone who doesn't know the difference between a CONTINENT & a COUNTRY??? Yeah, she's a regular rocket scientist.
  21. Diane, Hope you have a terrific birthday You also share a birthday with former Jammin' 105 (as well as countless radio stations across the country), air personality Famous Amos (Not to be confused with Famous Amos the cookie mogul.) Also on this date my friends Beth & Jeff became husband and wife.
  22. Happy Birthday Val. Enjoy your time in the Big Apple.
