Well I have tracked down all the lyrics to the "Jimmy" song, as I will now call it. lol
The lyrics to the "Things I Think About at Work" song:
"Another morning in my security box
Every stage has free bagels and lox
I just noticed I'm wearing two different-colored socks
Man, this Vanilla Coke® really rocks
My second-favorite actor has gotta be Captain Kirk
These are things I think about at work
I wonder if Abe Vigoda's still alive
I wonder if there's any doughnuts left on Stage 5
The movie Memento had a very confusing story
Will Joe Gibbs bring the Redskins back to glory?
I never met Pierce Brosnan; got the feelin' he's kind of a jerk
These are things I think about at work
I think Mr. T can take Russell Crowe in a fight (Don't you?)
I'd like to be Mr. Britney Spears for just one night
I've always thought that guinea pigs were odd (They don't even look like pigs)
The man who invented NutRageous® is a god
If I were Hercules, all my best friends could just call me Herc
These are things I think about at work
I used to have a next-door neighbor, and he'd yell at me when I'd cut through his yard
Either goin' to school or comin' home, and once he threw a rock at my dog
And then he'd call the cops when I'd play my music no matter how loud or quiet it was
And he had a weird limp from the second World War
And he smoked like a chimney, swore like a sailor, and he drank beer all day, and he hated my guts, and his name was Frank McGuirk
These are things I think about at work
Yeah, these are things I think about at work
Oh, these are things I think about at work
Ah-ahhhhhhhhh!"

A quote from the movie "the Color Purple"

Shug: I think it pisses God off when you walk by the color purple in a field and don't notice it.
Shug: More than anything God love admiration.
Celie: You saying God is vain?
Shug: No, not vain, just wanting to share a good thing. I think it pisses God off when you walk by the colour purple in a field and don't notice it.
Celie: You saying it just wanna be loved like it say in the bible?
Shug: Yeah, Celie. Everything wanna be loved. Us sing and dance, and holla! Just wanting to be loved. Look at them trees. Notice how the trees do everything people do to get attention... except walk?
[they laugh]
Shug: Oh Miss Celie, I feels like singing!
I love this movie and I do believe the trees talk to eachother!

That would be Honey and Almond, and if you remember that, how about the scent of Blue Halo shampoo?

The smell of Old Spice and pipe tobacco in conjunction will almost make me see my father in front of me.

As for random thoughts, today I have two. The first is that a litter of kittens conceived on my husbands birthday would be born on mine, and the second is that laryngitis is Gods way of telling me to shut my big mouth! I sure hope my fingers don't start to get cramps!

You have laryngitis right now? Oh dear, to you! I had it once, it was horrible! all that would come out of my mouth was a horrifying squeak sound that not only made my eyes water, but those around me!

Yeah, I caught the summer cold from you know where, and as my job requires a death certificate to take off (except on a weekend, then they just prop your corpse up until the end of the shift, lol) and I have to talk all day it isn't getting better too fast. The answer to my husbands prayers, I can't even talk, let alone nag!

I am in a class that also requires the same, if you are not on your death bed, you are here.
Please though, just shut up! LOL, It is the only way it will get better! Squeak that voice at them, a propped up corpse will seem a delight after the fingernails on a blackboard sound of your vioce!

Haha, you guys are so funny! I wish my random facts/thoughts were as funny as this stuff.


You know what is awesome? Being able to eat ice cream and doritoes for dinner and no one can tell me not to. You know what is even more awesome? Being smart enough to eat a salad and only a little ice cream and a few doritoes because I know it will make me sick if I only eat the ice cream and doritoes.

Being a grown up is lamer than I thought it would be when I was a kid.

My random thought for the night is about chickens. Why can't they fly? Penguins can't fly, but they can swim! Ostrages and Emus are too big to fly. Why can't a chicken fly??? Are they lazy? Or Can they swim and just not know it?

Thank you! Honey and Almond...that's it. As for Blue Halo shampoo, I have no idea but I would probably reconize it if I actully smelled it. Do they still make it?

Old Spice. Yep....that's my dad too. I actually have my dad's last bottle in a drawer (along with my mom's last bottle of Wind Song) and I open it sometimes just to smell it.

This experience has piqued my curiosity, and I've been reading about signs, symptoms, and complications of the disorder. It's been a fascinating read. She was a really sweet lady, about my own age. I can't imagine how difficult her life has been since the disease started to manifest itself. I know how self conscious I am about my vitiligo, it must be mind boggeling having to deal with NF. (Due to patient confidentiality issues, I got this random picture off the internet.)

Most of my random thoughts are either about human medicine, or feline medicine. I love learning new things!!!
For you I tracked this one down, it has been in my brain for reasons I can't explain why. LOL. A song stuck in my head.
It is from "Happy Days", Potsie teaching the Fonze about the heart.
It isn't the clip from the show but this presentation made me laugh!

I really will give 10,000 points to anyone who gives a video of it!
I spent this week hauling containers into the distribution center. We used to have outside contractors doing it, but they figured out it was cheaper having our own guys doing it. It's a plum job, and the 2 most senior drivers are doing it, but they were both off this week, so another guy and I did it. (By the way, I worked an almost 60-hour week, but I made nearly $1300 doing it.)

So, the containers are interesting, and inspire a lot of random thoughts. Such as...

Maersk, which sounds Russian, is actually an American company. The inventor of container shipping owned/operated a trucking company called McLean, and Maersk is a successor company to that.

The slow lane on interstates used to be referred to as "the McLean lane." Slow trucks.

The fast lane was the "Monfort lane." Monfort, the meat producer, is still in business, but they sold off their (very fast) trucking arm some years ago.

P&O (the containers these days mostly say "P&O Ned Lloyd") is one of the oldest shipping companies in the world. It's an English company, Peninsular and Oriental. They carried the English back and forth to India, when it was part of the British Empire.

P&O supposedly invented the term "posh." It was added to bookings of the highest-class passengers, and it stood for "Port Out, Starboard Home." This would be the cooler, shady side of the ship in the days before air conditioning.

Until very recently P&O owned Princess Cruises, and it still has a related cruise arm.

Today Princess is owned by Carnival.

Carnival's first cruise ended in embarassment; on its first cruise out, their only ship ran aground. The ship was the TSS Mardi Gras.

People on cruses are immediatly disqualified from this thread, just beacuse I am jealous of you!
EEP. edit! Really should have read that better!
My thoughts have now drfted to "I want an egg salad sammich, I have to get up and do this, the cat is no help at all!

For what it's worth, with a little looking you can find cruises so cheap you can do it for less than you'd pay to stay at a Holliday Inn and eat at Denny's.

And a cruise is the only true vacation a woman can take; all the rest are "working vacations."

Trillcat, that post about the pencils killed me.

My random thought it also about chickens. Who ate the first egg, and thought "Hey, I'll eat whatever comes out of this things's rear end?"

Why do people taste something they don't like and insist on saying, "This is soooo gross! Taste it! Taste how gross it is!"

Why do we itch?

Why do we press harder on a remote when we know the battery is dead and it won't make any difference?

How is it possible to have a civil war?

If a person kills their clone is it murder or suicide?

Why do other people hear our voices different than we do?

If one synchronized swimmer drowns do the rest have to drown too?

I need to clean my bedroom.

Random thought: lentil soup is yummy, but the family complains about the after effects of it.

I think I'll by some more.

My 13yr old is sleeping over at her boyfriends
Thank goodness, bf to her means "she's going out with someone" and holding hands. His mom is cool, they'll be in seperate rooms.

My husband is addicted to Eve. I don't see what he see's in it.

I hope my daughters are happy with their bday pressies.

I want a new tattoo.

Why do bad things happen to good people?

Why can't people just get a break sometimes?

For the same reason people first ate Kiwi, "hey look, a brown fuzzy gross looking thing, lets eat it!

Why do people taste something they don't like and insist on saying, "This is soooo gross! Taste it! Taste how gross it is!"
Hey is this milk bad? come on, taste it!

Why do we itch?
Hmmm, why do we and all itch??

Why do we press harder on a remote when we know the battery is dead and it won't make any difference?
A very delicate balance of cussing and throwing, if you get it right you break the vortex of time and space and batteries rain down upon you (keep an umbrella handy)

How is it possible to have a civil war?
it is not

If a person kills their clone is it murder or suicide?
Wait for it


Why do other people hear our voices different than we do?
Ah ,the ear, the voice, in our heads. Bwaaahaaaa.
Would talke too much page to deal with it,

If one synchronized swimmer drowns do the rest have to drown too?
Yes, there is no I in team!

I need to clean my bedroom.

I itch because I'm allergic to dogs, dustmites, cats and tomatoes. Oh and I share my life with them everyday. Give me a runny nose/hay fever over itchy skin anyday!

My hermit crab is clinking around in a shell that is much too small. There are five extra shells in the crabitat, clean ones. Switch shells already, Crabby.

I never got into handling my crab. Maybe that's why he/she has lived so long.

I had hermies, but unfortunatly, they both passed. I had 2, and the big one murdered the smaller one, then he passed soon after.
I would handle them sometimes, and scared the living bejebus out of one of my brothers friends while I stayed there for a brief time. He wanted to see what they were, so I picked up the bigger guy and put him on my palm, he was in his shell. Well he poked his little crabby self out, and if you have never seen a 250lb man who looks like a football player scream like a little girl and run across the room, It is quite the sight!

Why do we have to work to make money to pay for things?

Centuries ago people used to go around picking up stones of various sizes and trading them for goods and services. So who's stupid idea was it to make the only way to get "legitimate" money was to go out and work and have someone else give it to you?

Money is just printed paper and stamped metal, so why is it against the law for us to make our own money to use?

I like the Star Trek version of what societity will become. Money is a thing of the past, we work for the desire to lean and help and to contrubute to the universe in general. Whoops, checks the nether regions, is my Socialism showing?
