What Kind of Tea Are You?

Still keeping with the “herb” theme I’ve had going this month!  Tea is an herb!  😉
Not many highs and lows … well, not anymore I guess, and I prefer that.  I’ve had enough of those and now slow and steady is perfect for me.  🙂

What Herb Are You?

Edgy and dynamic life!  ROFLMAO!  Oh, no, nonono!  Just a wife and homeschool mom who makes soap and pretty much keeps to herself except for the occasional blog post.  Pretty much the opposite of edgy and dynamic!  😀

The Blonde and the Lawyer

A blonde and a lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from LA to NY.

The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game.

The blonde, tired, just wants to take a nap, politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks.

The lawyer persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun.

He explains, “I ask you a question, and if you don’t know the answer, you pay me $5.00, and vice versa.” Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep.

The lawyer, now agitated, says, “Okay, if you don’t know the answer you pay me $5.00, and if I don’t know the answer, I will pay you $500.00.”

This catches the blonde’s attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, agrees to the game.

The lawyer asks the first question.”What’s the distance from the earth to the moon?”

The blonde doesn’t say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5.00 bill and hands it to the lawyer.

“Okay” says the lawyer, “your turn.”

She asks the lawyer, “What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?”

The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references, no answer. He taps into the air phone with his modem and searches the net and the library of congress, no answer. Frustrated, he sends e-mails to all his friends and coworkers, to no avail. After an hour, he wakes the blonde, and hands her $500.00.

The blonde says, “Thank you,” and turns back to get some more sleep.

The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the blonde and asks, “Well, what’s the answer?”

Without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5.00, and goes back to sleep.

And you thought this was going to be a dumb blonde joke.


Oh my goodness!  I saw this joke like 20 years ago, when I was still my naturally blonde self, and just loved it, for obvious reasons, lol. 

Have an epic weekend!

The tree was a popular tourist site since the 1880s when a group of pioneers carved out the center. It became an iconic part of the state park. Until recently, cars were allowed to drive through.

Jim Allday, a park volunteer, found the collapsed tree on Sunday as a major storm barreled over central and northern California.

What’s Your Hidden Talent?

This made me laugh.  I took this quiz twice and got two different answers.  Depends on my mood I guess!  I don’t think I’m all that rebellious, but I do like behind the scenes.  Also, I think I do understand people.  Sometimes, they really don’t like that.
