Besides Victoria's Secret, No Buzzing, Where in the World?

    Queen Anne's Lace Art Poster Print by Phillip Gustave, 27x27
  1. We know what Queen Victoria's secret is. What about Queen Anne's secret?
  2. This post is caffeine free. Sorry. Really, I am.
  3. If I left my heart in San Francisco, do I still want to know the way to San Jose? What about Arizona? It is Wednesday, so I can't exactly kick off my Sunday shoes. I know Indiana wants me, but I can't go back there.

Mighty Mouse - Movie Poster - 11 x 17
  1. Wild thing... I think I love you? Do wild things love us? Never ask a grizzly bear that in Alaska.
  2. If Mighty Mouse came to save the day, did we really need Superman?

JFK Really Said, How Long?, Gunfire Rain

    Leadership: JFK Subject Art Poster Print, 18x24

3x Caffeine, Ditty Day, Knock Knock (No Joke)

  1. Boom Shaka Laka. Not a triple caffeinated mocha shake. It could be.
  2. A good ditty is hard to find. "Do wa..." You know the rest.
  3. When opportunity comes knocking, do you close the door and hide as if it is someone sharing their faith? Open-mindedness can be interesting in both regards.

Tom Petty, Fozzie 'PacMan' Bear, Love Is...

    Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers - Greatest Hits
  1. Tom Petty is right. You don't have to live like a refugee. I don't think everyone knows that. Be thankful. Be free.

    Tied up, taken away and held for ransom
    It don't really matter to me
    Everybody's had to fight to be free
    You see you don't have to live like a refugee
    I said you don't have to live like a refugee "
  2. "Wahka wahka wahka" Fozzie Bear playing PacMan
  3. Love is... her pouring you a second cup before taking some for herself.

    small-talk, Discipline Me (Please), Sinking Ducks Never Sing

      Indiana Jones TM 6' Leather Whip
    1. Small-talk is frustrating. I can have the same conversation with a door knob? At least the door knob can take me somewhere.
    2. This nonsense? Try doing it everyday. I miss days here and there. I have learned self-flagellating is an effective motivator.
    3. No one ever sings accolades about lead ducks in the bathtub.

    1. What is it about wallabies?
    2. If God created Fridays, yet worked a 6-day week (resting on Sunday), did He ever say TGIF? Or TGIS? Or TMIS (Thank Me It's Sunday)? Either way, today is Tuesday. And I'm thankful.
    3. There are two clocks. The one on the computer says it is 12:36. The one in my stomach says it is lunchtime. 
    That's a wallaby pictured, in case you were wondering.

    Lollipopping, Logical Nonsense, Cup Dilemma

    1. What was so good about a ship named Lollipop?
    2. Nonsense. The absence of sense? Tougher to accomplish than you might. As I construct nonsense, I must gauge my success against logic... sense. Sort of defeats the point.
    3. I've got a problem. Psalm 23:5 says that "my cup overflows," as if it is a good thing. My local greasy spoon tells me their cup is bottomless. How can both be true?

    Lovers, Stolen Kisses, Ladies Who Aren't

    1. Lovers spend a lot of time trying to tell you are. When things end, they remind you.
    2. Late afternoon coffee is like a stolen kiss. You both want to be there, you probably shouldn't, but it is oh-so-good.
    3. Why is the women involved in the "luck be a lady tonight" aren't actually ladies, but someone slightly more expensive with slightly less class?

    Can You Jabba Size That?, Big Booty, Tea Party

      Star Wars: Jabba the Hut 12-Inch Figure by Sideshow Collectibles!
    1. Words I never want to hear spoken to me on the way to a Star Wars audition, "Hey, how about you for Jabba the Hut? You are made for the part."
    2. "That's a huge pirate’s booty." What? Are you calling me a pirate? Is my booty that big?
    3. I repeat... I am not, have not been, nor intend to ever be a little tea cup, short and stout. (and I'm not happy about the politics thrown onto two great drinks, coffee and tea.)
