In MY day, one actually had to have a COSTUME to go out trick or treating!!! WHAT IS HAPPENING IN OUR WORLD? We have had several groups of children come to our door without a hint of a costume. And I don’t mean older siblings without a costume, I mean GROUPS OF KIDS.
Now this, this is funny.
I am excited because I get to see the cutest most precious baby girl in the whole wide world dressed up for Halloween tonight! My niece Baby A! Awwww.
Tomorrow, day one of Nano. Let the games begin!
Um, huge difference between…
“You know, education — if you make the most of it, you study hard and you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well.
“If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”
Thank you Eden for the photo!
How greedy of the audience members to think otherwise, of course, we always EXPECT things…that’s what you get for handing out cars to a studio audience…
Gee, Oprah. A Thousand Smackeroos. Thanks a Bunch.
“I really do think that it’s the best gift I can give this audience, so thanks to our friends at Bank of America — they thought this was a good idea, too . . . you will each go home with $1,000! . . . One thousand dollars! Okay?” Oprah asked, rhetorically.
Wildly enthusiastic audience response — though, in truth, nowhere near the level of studio hysteria achieved when she gave audience members those Pontiacs. Still, a pretty happy crowd.
Then came the Trick.
The $1,000, she told them, will be doled out in the form of debit cards, and recipients must spend all of their money on a charity of choice. What she was actually giving them, Oprah said with all the patronization of a woman whose financial worth has been put at $1.5 billion, is “the best feeling in the world.
Definite dimming of enthusiasm in studio to level now far below car giveaway, which has become the gold standard of audience giveaway hysteria.
My Question: If YOU had $1000? Where would YOU GIVE IT TO?

Americans Celebrate 10 Millionth ‘Bring Yourself To Work Day’
Bring Yourself To Work Day is a special workplace event observed five times weekly, and sometimes more, in every factory, office, warehouse, restaurant, and retailer of goods or services worldwide. The event has been used for generations in the U.S. and other industrialized nations as a way to instill in the workforce a sense of responsibility through repeated exposure to a largely unfulfilling work environment. It also introduces otherwise inactive adults to the benefits of steady employment and the importance of punctuality.
Bring Yourself To Work Day events include special presentations, conference calls, and various deadlines. But there’s time for leisure, too, including having short non-work-related conversations with coworkers, eating lunch, and going to the bathroom.
If the employer feels an attendee has adequately brought himself to work, the participant may be invited to join in a broader series of activities, where he can learn more about the importance of being a team player, what to do during meetings, and how to patiently await a cost-of-living pay increase.
Let us see how many of us over-celebrate today and have “Call In Sick Day” tomorrow!

The kiddy version! Who knew? Well, my sister-in-law and Trisha did, they bought this book for our friend Rachel’s little girl, in waiting
Niggaspace: A MySpace ‘Fo’ Niggas’ Launches
On Sunday, Niggaspace â€” a “place fo’ niggas” â€” was launched by an 18-year-old New Jersey native who goes by the name of “Tyrone” â€” a reference to the “Tyrone Biggums” character played by Dave Chappelle Chappelle’s Show. Since its Sunday launch, the site has seen over 30,000 unique visitors, “Tyrone” says. on
“The site is in no way meant to be racist,” he told FishbowlNY today. The domain name was purchased in February, “Tyrone” says, with the intention of creating an alternative to MySpace where “black people can feel comfortable.” “Tyrone,” though, says Niggaspace is for everyone, not just blacks.
