A MEDITATION FOR DE-STRESSING

Picture yourself near this quiet stream.
Look at the scene... the beauty of nature helps.
Look up. See a deep blue sky, the birds... how sweetly they sing.
A happy place... away from the usual hateful, unhappy world.
You know no one can bother you here.
Just soothing waterfall sounds echo on the air.
The water's clear.
=
You can easily make out the face of the person whose head you are holding under the water.

LONG CATEGORY, November 2005:
1st - Ellie Dent with:

Element: MAN

Symbol: XY

Atomic Weight: 210

Physical Properties: Solid at room temperature but easily gets bent out of shape. Fairly dense and sometimes flaky. Very difficult to find a pure sample, therefore proving it's really rare. Ageing ones are unable to conduct electricity as easily as the young and fresher.

Chemical Properties: Attempts to bond with Wo whenever it can. Also tends to form strong bonds with itself. Becomes explosive whenever mixed with K(i)d for any prolonged period of time

Usage: None really, except methane production. Good samples produce an amazingly large quantity.

Caution: Warning! In the absence of Wo, this element will decompose rapidly and begin to smell.

=

Element: WOMAN

Symbol: Wo

Atomic Weight: 120

Physical Properties: Rounded in form. Quite compact. Boils at nothing. May freeze anytime. Melts whenever treated properly. Markedly bitter if not used well.

Chemical Properties: Very active. Appears to possess strong affinity to metals such as gold, and precious stones. Violent if left alone. Seems able to absorb a huge amount of exotic food. Specimen may turn a little green when placed beside a finer one. Ages rapidly.

Usage: Highly ornamental. Extremely good catalyst for rapid disintegration of wealth. Indeed, probably the world's most powerful income reducing agent yet known.

Caution: Highly explosive in inexperienced hands. Trust me.

SOME REASONS WHY MEN ARE HAPPIER

Men can (and do) play with toys all their life.

Men - damn them - can wear shorts, no matter what their legs look like in them.

Men have just one wallet and one paltry pair of shoes which are good for every occasion.

Men can choose whether or not to grow a moustache.

Men can 'do' their fingernails with a pocket knife.

Men's bellies usually hide their large hips.

Chocolate is just another snack.

The whole garage belongs to them.

Weddings take care of themselves.

Men's last name never changes.

Everything on a man's face stays its original colour.

Men only have to shave their faces and necks.

=

Also, if a gentleman has grey hairs, or wrinkles show, it somehow merely adds character.

Men, unlike women, can keep the same hairstyle for ages, decades even.

Men can complete their Christmas shopping for mates, relatives, whoever - on Christmas Eve - in all of half-an-hour.

Men can go on a week's vacation, or jolly hitchhiking holiday, and pack the one suitcase.

A male's neat new shoes or boots don't then generally cause heartache, toe blisters, or cut or mangle his feet.

Men don't have to stop and think which way to turn a screw.

Men, engagingly, have the one mood all the time.

Men can open their own jars effortlessly.

Sigh...

1st - Ellie Dent with:
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN: The Real Definition of Words When Used By Women:

1. FINE - I am right. This argument is over. You need to shut up.

2. THAT'S OKAY - One of the most dangerous statements a woman can make to a man. 'That's okay' means she wants to think long and hard before deciding quite how and when you will be paying for your mistake.

3. NOTHING - This is the calm before the storm. It means 'Something' and you'd better be on your toes. Arguments that start with 'Nothing' usually end with 'Fine.' (See One).

4. FIVE MINUTES - If getting dressed, this means it will take anything up to half-an-hour. (Don't be mad about this. It's the same definition for you when it's your turn to do some really boring chores around the house.)

=

5. THANKS - A woman is thanking you. Don't question why, even if you are confused. But say, 'You're welcome.' Then let it go.

6. LOUD, SOULFUL SIGH - Huffy, non-verbal comment often misunderstood by a mere man. It means that she thinks you're an impudent idiot - feeble, to boot - and furthermore, is wondering why she has been standing here wasting time debating 'nothing.' (Refer to Three)

7. GO AHEAD - This is often a dare, not permission. (Don't Do It!)

8. DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT, I GOT IT - The second most dangerous statement a woman can make. This means she has asked a man umpteen times to do something, but, now infuriated, is finally doing it for herself. But wait, that means you will then ask her, in the future, 'Why, honey, what is wrong ?' (See Three.)

LAWS OF PHYSICS FOR CATS
If physics even applies to any feline...

Law of Cat Inertia
A resting cat will tend to remain at rest, unless acted upon by some outside force such as the opening of any cat food tin, say, or he sees a mouse scurrying past nearby.

Law of Cat Motion
A smart cat will move in a straight line, unless there's a very good reason to change direction.

Law of Cat Thermodynamics
Heat flows from a warmer to a cooler body, except in the case of a feline when heat flows to the cat.

Law of Cat Magnetism
All clothing attracts cat hairs in direct proportion to the degree of colour difference between the cat hairs and colouring of the fabric.

=

Law of Cat Acceleration
A cat will accelerate, hotfoot off, at a constant rate, till he is good and ready to stop.

Law of Rug Configuration
No rug may remain in its flat, smooth state if a cat is present.

The First Law of Energy Conservation
Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. The cat therefore, will use as little as possible himself.

The Second Law of Energy Conservation
A coping cat senses that maximum energy can be stored by a lot of napping of his own.

Law of Mass
A cat's mass increases faithfully in direct proportion to the cushiony comfort of the warm lap/warm chair which he occupies.

The Law of Cat Obedience
As yet undiscovered.

THINGS THAT DOGS NEED TO REMEMBER

I will not play with Dad's underwear when he is in the bathroom.

The garbage collector is certainly a jerk: however he's normal, and harmless. He is NOT a crook, a madman who's stealing all our things.

I do not need to stand up when I'm hiding under the Scandinavian coffee table.

I will not roll my childish toys far behind the fridge.

I WILL shake rainwater from my coat BEFORE I enter the house.

I will not eat all the cats' lunch, before - or after - they've eaten it.

I will stop trying to find clean carpet anywhere indoors when I'm ready to throw up.

I will not throw up in the car.

I won't roll on dead birds, stinky wet fishes' innards, and so on.

I will not lick my human's face after I've eaten animal poop.

Kitty Crunchies are food that's not normally recommended for canines.

=

I won't eat any more cast-off socks and redeposit them in the backyard after processing.

The diaper pail is not an actual cookie jar.

I will not chew my human's toothbrush and not tell him.

I will not chew crayons or pens, especially the beetroot-red one, or my human will fret... think that I'm ill and hemorrhaging.

When in the car, I won't insist on having the window rolled fully down when it's raining.

We do NOT have a doorbell fitted. So I won't bark persistently each time I hear one on the TV.

I will not steal my Mom's delicate frilly underwear and dance around our back yard with it.

The sofa is not a huge flannel. Neither are Mom and Dad's laps.

My head does not belong in the refrigerator.

I will not wilfully bite the officer's hand when he reaches for Mom's driver's license and the car registration.

A CAT'S DIARY

Day Nine-Nine-Three of Captivity!

My captors continue to taunt me with frivolous, useless dangling objects.

They themselves dine well on fresh meat, luxuries too, while the other inmates and I are fed rubbish - hash or nuggets. Unbelievable!

Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something now in order to maintain my strength.

The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape.

In an attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the woollen carpet. Shame...

Also today, I decapitated a foolish mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet.

I hoped that this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates what I am capable of.

However, they merely made the usual condescending comments about what 'a clever hunter' I am.

The sick bastards!

=

There was an assembly of their accomplices tonight.

I was placed in solitary confinement, fenced in, for the duration of the event.

But I could clearly hear all the noise, and smell the juicy food.

I overheard that my confinement was due to 'allergies'.

I must immediately learn what that means, and contemplate how I might use it to my best advantage.

Tonight, I almost succeeded in an attempt to exterminate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he walked about.

I must attempt this again, perhaps tomorrow, this time not at the bottom, but the top of the stairs.

I'm convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and snitches.

The dog named 'Dink', a cheeky, short-legged dachshund, is receiving special privileges.

He's regularly released - yet always seems to be more than happy to return.

He obviously has issues.

DOGS' LETTERS TO GOD

Dear God,
How come people smell flowers, all sorts of them, but seldom smell each other? Where are their priorities?

Dear God,
When we get to Heaven, can we sit on your settee, please? Or is it the same old tale?

Dear God,
Excuse me, but why are there cars named after the jaguar, the cougar, and the stingray, etc. but not a single one named after a dog? How often do you see a cougar riding around? We dogs love a nice ride! I know every dog breed cannot have its own special model, but it would be easy to rename the 'Chrysler Eagle' the 'Chrysler Beagle!'

Dear God,
If a dog starts to bark his head off in the vast, deep dark forests at night-time and no human hears him, is he still a bad dog?

Dear God,
Is it true that in Heaven, all dining room tables have on-ramps as standard?

=

Dear God,
If we dogs come back as humans, is that good... or bad?

Dear God,
More meatballs, less spaghetti, please.

Dear God,
When we get to the famous, beautiful Pearly Gates - rejoice! - do we
need to shake hands to get in?

Dear God,
We humble dogs understand remote verbal instructions, and hand signals. Furthermore, scent IDs. What do feeble humans understand?

Dear God,
Are there really dogs on other planets? I've been howling hopelessly at the moon - hourly - or more , yet all I ever hear is that awful boxer from over the street! Hate it.

Dear God,
Are there mailmen in Heaven? If there is, will I have to go apologise?

Dear God,
Is it true dogs aren't allowed in restaurants 'cos they can't decide what NOT to order? Or 'cos we face the carpet thing, again?

Dear God,
May I have my testicles back?

3rd - Ellie Dent with:
A truck driver from Manhattan frequently traveled through a small town where there was a courthouse at the roadside. There was likely to be a high number of lawyers walking briskly along the road there. The truck driver made it a practice to hit any pedestrian lawyer with his truck as he was speeding by. One day, he spotted a priest shuffling along and kindly stopped to give him a ride. Further on, as he drew near to the town itself he saw a lawyer.
~
Accelerating quickly, he veered his truck towards the lawyer ... but then remembered the priest He swerved awkwardly to the center, but he heard an awful, an appalling sound ... a strange thud. Looking fearfully in the rear view mirror, he observed that the lawyer was apparently OK , thank God, and now rolling away off across a field. He turned to the priest, saying, 'Father, I am sure I missed that lawyer!' The priest said: 'That's okay son ... I got him with the door.'

A scruffy looking guy strolls into a bar one summer's evening and orders a drink. The bartender says: 'No way. I don't think you can pay for it.' The guy says, 'You are right. I do not have any money, but if I show you something you have never seen before, will you give me a drink?'

The bartender says, 'Only if what you show me ain't risque.' 'Right. Deal!' says the guy and reaches into the pocket of his coat and retrieves a little furry hamster. He puts the hamster on the bar and it runs to the end of the bar, climbs down, runs across the room, up the piano, jumps on the keyboard and starts playing a tune. And the hamster is really rather good.

The bartender says, 'You are right. I have never seen anything like that before in my life. That hamster is superb on the piano.'

=

The guy downs the drink and asks the bartender, Harry, for another brew, a brandy. 'Money, a miracle, or no joy', says the barman.

The guy reaches into his coat pocket and pulls out a frog. He puts it on the bar, whereupon the tiny animal begins to sing. He has a marvelous voice and pretty fine pitch. A guy from the other end of the bar runs over and offers him three hundred dollars for the entertaining frog. The guy says, 'Okay. It is a deal.' He takes the money and hands it over. A very happy buyer hurries away.

The bartender says: 'Hey! You must be stupid! Some kinda nut. You sold a remarkable, genuinely creative, singing frog for that? Why, it must've been worth millions, easy. It's insanity, isn't it?'

'No no, not so. You see, the hamster there is also a ventriloquist.'

There was this man who had three girlfriends, but he did not know which one to marry. So he decided to give them 5000 bucks and see how each of them spent it.

The first one went out and got a total makeover with the money. She got new clothes, a new hairdo, a manicure, pedicure, the works, and told the man, 'I spent the money so I could look pretty for you because I love you so much.'

The second one went out and bought brand new expensive golf clubs and a large flatscreen television, and gave them to the man.

She said, 'I bought cool gifts 'cos I love you so much.'

The third woman, a buxom, unwed accountant, who took the bucks and invested in the stock market, tripled her money, returned a good 5000 bucks to the man and reinvested the whole of the rest. She said, 'I am investing now for the future 'cos I care. I need and love you awfully deeply.'

The man pondered a long while, concentrating on how each of the women had spent the money.
At last, however, being a mere man, he opted to wed the one with the largest breasts.

Dear Dad,

$chool i$ great, thankfully. I've made lot$ of crazy but agreeable and generous friend$ here I can rely on, turn to them even, and am presently $tudying hard. With all my possessions, I $imply can't really think of anything I need, or want right now. But lastly, if you would like, you can ju$t $end me a card, as I'd be pleased to hear from you. OK?

Love, your $on.

Reply from Dad...

Dear Jimmy,

I realize that astroNOmy, ecoNOmics and oceaNOgraphy are eNOugh to keep many a man, even an hoNOr student like yourself, incredibly busy. Incidentally, don't forget that while pursuit of kNOwledge is undue, hard graft, tho' it will always be a truly NOble task, in life you canNOt ever really study hard eNOugh.

Love, Dad.
