Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Tuesday, November 27, 2007

Man this is getting big...


People all over the world are getting into it...go check out the updated count of grains donated over at Anndi's.

Thanks to Roger for giving me his balls...the two you see above...
Christmas Balls you silly people!

OK, so Mimi, Queen of the Memes was tagged by Lee . This meme originally comes from The Blue Tea person.

Then Mimi tagged The Lady Of The Luggage, Anndi, who tagged The Voice Of The Tapes, Bud, who has then tagged us...

Rules: Devise a list of 5-10 courses you would take to fix your life. It's more fun to be in classes with friends, so include one class from the person who tagged you that you'd also like to take. Tag five.

Traffic Building 505- (this one from Bud) - Maybe if I take it we can understand why our hits are going up, but our rankings are plummeting. That 'value of your blog' thing...we are now worth half what we used to be, we are so confused....

Winning Lottery Numbers 101 - What? There are no courses like this ...anywhere??????
Now come on....if you could take this course tell me you wouldn't...and do it with a straight face...

How To Speak Like A S'thna - Well, all my friends say we sound silly when we try it and well hell, it might be nice to smooth out da Nu Yawka accent wit a bit of the drawl...

Time Management - Bottom line, we never seem to have enough time to do everything that needs to be done...OK, so this is not a funny one...but hell we have always needed this course.

Holidays without your son
101 - Not sure this is a course anyone can teach, but it is a hard lesson plan, we can tell you that. First year ever...and we are sad, but we also know it is for the best this year and it will never happen again...

OK, so it might not be the best syllabus in the world, but it is mine mine mine,...I tell you mine mine mine....

We are supposed to tag people...so

rock on ladies...

Coming up this week on DR. BLOGSTEIN'S RADIO HAPPY HOUR: (Live on Tuesday November 27th at 9PM ET and forever archived at BlogTalkRadio.)

Dr. Blogstein and Dangerous Lee will try to connect with NBA Hall of Famer Rick Barry after the Radio Happy Hour staff screwed up when trying to get the basketball legend on the line last week.

Also, R&B artist Troy "Breeze" Larkin wants to put the "love" back into music. Breeze is on a mission to change the way our entertainment industry treats women but can he sell a record without referring to "bitches" and "hos"? We'll find out.

Plus, Cheril Vendetti is "The Mistress of the Mob Cuisine." She's an Italian stand up comedian with a passion for food. Jokes and pasta--what's not to love?

All that and SUPREME COMMANDER OF THE CYBERWAVES Vinny Bond drags his Big Leather Couch into the Radio Happy Hour Lounge and chats live with the listeners, your calls at 646-652-4804, we'll FINALLY play a rousing game of "NAME OR DRUG" and we'll talk more about the OVEN BAG HOLIDAY SPECIAL.

Join us live every Tuesday night at 9PM ET. The Radio Happy Hour Lounge--a live chat room during show time--is a whole new reason to make sure you listen live! It’s the show within the show!

Speaking of rocking on...

23 Of Your Sparks

  1. katherine. Says:
  2. Holidays without your babies is a tough class to pass. I remember how much my grandparents missed us...and how my Mama missed the years we couldn't be together.

    Divorce and remarriage complicates scheduling...

    Then the babies get significant others who ALSO have families who seem to want them on holidays too...

    I flunk this class all the time....heavy sigh....

  3. Travis Cody Says:
  4. I'm a little skeered now. The voices seem to be having out of body experiences. They were at Anndi's, and Meri ran away, and frankly I'm not sure if anyone is safe.

    I have also been tagged with this meme. I'm working on it for after Dancing.

  5. Anndi Says:
  6. Hugs...

    Many of us will miss loved ones this Christmas.

  7. Twyla Says:
  8. Thanks for the tag...it may take me awhile to do though. It's going to require me to think...something I haven't been doing much of lately. LOL

  9. RW Says:
  10. Thanks for the shout Vin glad you enjoy them lol! Good RS but I am hearing "Jumping Jack Flash" still great music first thing in the morning! Have a great day!

  11. Coco Says:
  12. What? My life doesn't need fixing! I love my life. I have the perfect Man, the perfect kid, the perfect friends, the perfect pets, the perfect job, the perfect home ... well, okay, maybe it could stand a little tweaking ... rofl.

    Seriously, Vinny, everybody hates me these days, because my life is damn near perfect. And yes, that is MY perception of it.

    I'll be alone on Christmas Day, too. Maybe You and I could chat or something ... *grins*

  13. Miss Anndi tagged me for this, and I still have yet to wrap my brain around this. I must get to it, lest she thinks 1) I don't like her and 2) I'm too dumb to figure it out!

    I don't think any parent knows the "best" way of coping with the holidays away from their loved children. I know my MIL still mourns that we don't come home for every Thanksgiving and Christmas. She understands, but she's still sad. With only two in OH, one in NY, and us, she's glad when at least one group of the out-of-towners comes back to OH for a holiday. Sadly for her, the youngest grandchildren live out-of-state. The ones who live just an hour away are old enough to not want to hang out with grandparents anymore.


  14. KATHERINE: I know it is only hopeful, but I can dream that I will be able to see my one son sometime during the holidays each year...

    TRAVIS: Those are her voices...mine are containable LOL

    ANNDI: I know my dear friend...and this one will be difficult for you - HUGS

    TWYLA: Thinking occasionally is a good thing! LOL

    ROGER: You were right sir...I grabbed the wrong code last night, but it is fixed now with B.S. playing

    COCO: LOL c'mon dear...I do not hate you....so not everyone does...I will be with my brother and his family on Christmas...just not with Matt (pout)

    SONGBIRD: Wow, I did not expect that class to cause the most impact...silly me...

  15. Ahh....Brown Sugar is SUCH a great song!

    I like your classes. I'd need to take some sort of "love your fellow man whilst in traffic" class. I swear I want the Deathmobile from the movie Animal House with a big old cattle bar up front and then I could go out and "educate' my fellow man.

    It was a bad drive in today :P

  16. Schmoop Says:
  17. You are correct...There is absolutely nothing not to love about jokes and pasta. Mangia and Cheers!!

  18. Angell Says:
  19. HUGS to you honey. I know it's gotta be tough without Matt, but you'll get through it.

    I'll take a few of those courses with you - esp. Winning Lottery #'s 101 (see cuz we're in different countries there's no competition :D)

    SMOOCHES hon.

  20. Coco Says:
  21. I was more up for that challenge than I expected to be, Hon. It's up and ready for comment. *hugs*

  22. OBLadyBug Says:
  23. What! How to Speak like a S'thna.
    We like da Nu Yawka accent just like it is. But they say if you live in the south long enough you won't need a course you'll just start sounding like them.

    I'm sorry you won't be able to be with Matt this year for Christmas.

    Great Song.

  24. STARRLIGHT: I agree...great song...
    heheheheh I LOVE the Deathmobile...

    MATT-MAN: You should listen in dude

    ANGELL: I do not mind sharing though...SMOOCH

    COCO: I knew you could do it!

    OBLADYBUG: LOLOLOL..maybe with a good teacher it will be easier...
    Glad you enjoyed the music dear.

  26. Su thu nuh




  27. At least he is fixin to try, Turn!
    Bless his heart ;0

    Now Bond, above are two classic Southernism. SPrinkle liberally. Funny part is, I am not Southern by birth but I have always used the "fixin to" line. My ex and his mother nearly died laughing the first time they heard me use it.

  31. Tug Says:
  32. I had one holiday without my daughter...as much as it sucked, I was lucky enough to have a very good friend who did everything in her power to give me the 'happy'. Much luck & love for your first.

  33. Julie Says:
  34. OH yeah....Ann tagged me with this one. You have some great classes. I'll where the short skirt and sexy open toe shoes....'K? Just so we can sit together you'll know it's me!

  35. TURN: Tha's what I said! LOL

    STARRLIGHT: I know 'fixin to' and 'bless your heart' and I know 'ma'am' and 'all y'all' and some others too....and you have the soul of a S'thna LOL

    MAGS: Always looking aren't you? LOL

    TUG: Well I had a special family take me in for Thanksgiving and I will be with my brother and his family for Christmas

    JULIE: How can I pay attention with the open toe shoes? huh? How can I????

  36. Travis Cody Says:
