Happy Wednesday (my 3rd time up this am...)

Good morning TRT,

I could say good evening and get away with it, as this is my 3rd time up (Tuesday nite or Wed morning, you decide) due to what seems to be a little sleeplessness after the attack of the killer mutant Palyotoxin... ... I will have to check Silverplatter at Washington University to see if there is a documented set of effects for this.

OK, so to relieve the "I cannot sleep" cycle, I DO have a new (very punny) joke...

The Gorgeous Redhead

A man is dining in an Italian Upscale restaurant and notices there is a gorgeous redhead sitting at the next table (Alice?? nnnnaaaaahhhhhh.... :D ). His attention is held captive by her beauty and charm. He has been checking her out since he first noticed her, but lacks the nerve to break the ice.

Suddenly she sneezes, and her glass eye comes flying out of its socket towards the man. He reflexively reaches out and grabs it out of midair. The two lock eye(s) for a moment, and he stands up, walks over to her table, sits down and hands it back to her...

"Oh my, I am so sorry," the woman says as she pops her eye back in place. "Let me buy your dinner to make it up to you," she says. They enjoy a wonderful dinner together, and afterwards they go to the theater followed by drinks. They talk, they laugh, she shares her deepest dreams (a 1000 gal reef...) and he shares his (a coral farm in the South Pacific...). She listens intently, fascinated, hanging on every word.

After paying for everything, she asks him if he would like to come to her place for a nightcap... ...and breakfast...

They had an absolutely wonderful, wonderful time.

The next morning, she cooks a gourmet omlet of shrimp and cheeses with homemade bagels with strawberry cream cheese, freshly ground Colombian coffee and little hand-made blueberry tarts. The guy is amazed!! Everything had been SO incredible!!!!

"You know," he says, "you have been so wonderful to me, the dinner, the theatre, all the wonderful things we shared last night, now this incredible breakfast! YOU are the perfect woman to me. I have to ask though, are you this nice to every guy you meet?"

"No," she replies...

Wait for it...

It's coming...

The suspense is killing you, isn't it? :rolleyes:

She says...

"You just happened to catch my eye."

:funny: :funny: :D :p :D :funny: :funny:

Yup, not enough sleep, that palyotoxin must have some neuroactivator complex associated with it...

Morning! Happy Hump Day! Well, we got all that western rain today...kind of yucky outside.

Glad to see everyone is in good spirits! Geoff and I watched Nemesis last night (finally). Not bad!

Wish I could contribute to the joke parade this morning...but I do have a thought for the day:

Inner Strength

--If you can start the day without caffeine or pep pills,
--If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
--If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
--If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,
--If you can understand when loved ones are too busy to give you time,
--If you can overlook when people take things out on you when, through no fault of yours, something goes wrong,
--If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
--If you can face the world without lies and deceit,
--If you can conquer tension without medical help,
--If you can relax without liquor,
--If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
--If you can do all these things,

Then you are probably the family dog.
