Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Monday, December 04, 2006


I need to give a shout-outs to a few people today before we discuss the tagging...

Dr. Blogstein had the best video parody yesterday..even though I was sick, it made me laugh and laugh and laugh...you MUST check it out HERE.
I am not kidding when I say this is the funniest place I have found...

If you have not read the funny story about Sueann's Office Christmas party, you must check it out HERE.

Many of you read the great site MIMI WRITES...but have you found one of her other sites...Dating Profile Of The Day? Check it out HERE.
This is where Mimi exposes the ridiculous opening lines used by those reaching out across cyberspace for a romantic connection. Each Saturday she also runs the Saturday Comeback Challenge where you, fine reader, get to respond to some of these looney lines.

THE COUCH NOTE: ALL my female readers, please visit MIMI today at the link above for MIMI WRITES...her posting is a must read for all women!
