Funny Email

I recently received this email.  It is one of those ones that people will forward on and on.  This one was so funny that I had to share it with you all. 

As we progress through the year 2010, I want to thank all of you for your  educational e-mails over the past year. I am totally screwed up now and have little chance of recovery.

I no longer open a bathroom door
without using a paper towel, or have the waitress put lemon slices in my ice water without worrying about the bacteria on the lemon  peel.

I can't sit down on the hotel bedspread
because I can only imagine what has happened on it since it was last washed.

I have trouble shaking hands
with someone who has been driving because the number one pastime while driv ing alone is picking one's nose.

Eating a little snack sends me on a guilt trip  because
I can only imagine how many gallons of trans fats I have consumed over the years.

I can't touch any woman's purse
for fear she has placed it on the floor of a public  restroom.

to whoever sent me the one about rat poop in the glue on envelopes because I now have to use a wet sponge with every envelope that needs sealing.

now I have to scrub the top of every can I open for the same reason.

I no longer have any savings
because I gave it to a sick girl (Penny Brown) who is about to die for the 1,387,258th time.

I no longer have any money,
but that will change once I receive the $15,000 that Bill Gates/Microsoft and AOL are sending me for participating in their special e-mail program.

I no longer worry about my soul
because I have 363,214 angels looking out for me, and St. Theresa's Novena has granted my every wish.

I can't have a drink in a bar
because I'll wake up in a bathtub full of ice with my kidneys gone.

I can't eat at KFC
because their chickens are actually horrible mutant freaks with no eyes, feet or feathers.

I can't use cancer-causing deodorants
even  though I smell like a water buffalo on a hot day.

I have learned that my prayers only get answered if I forward an e-mail to seven of my friends and make a wish within five minutes.

I no lon ger drink Coca Cola because it can remove toilet stains.

I no longer buy
gas without taking someone along to watch the car so a serial killer doesn't  crawl in my back seat when I'm filling up.

I no longer use Cling Wrap
in the microwave because it causes seven different types of  cancer.

I can't boil a cup of water in the microwave anymore because it will blow up in my face, disfiguring me for life.

I no longer go to the movies
because I could be pricked with a needle infected with AIDS when I sit down.

I no longer go to shopping malls
because someone will drug me with a perfume  sample and rob me.

And I no longer answer the phone because someone will ask me to dial a number for which I will get a  phone bill with calls to Jamaica, Uganda, Singapore, and Uzbekistan.

I no longer buy cookies from Neiman Marcus
since I now have their recipe.

I can't use anyone's toilet but mine because a big black snake could be lurking under the seat and cause me instant death when it bites my butt.

I can't ever pick up $2.00 coin dropped in the parking lot because it probably was placed there by a sex molester waiting to grab me as I bend over.

I can't do any gardening
because I'm afraid I'll get bitten by the Violin Spider and my hand will fall off.

If you don't send this e-mail to at least 144,000 people in the next 70 minutes, a large dove with diarrhea will land on your head at 5:00 p.m. tomorrow afternoon, and the fleas from 120 camels will infest your back, causing you to grow a hairy hump. I know this will occur because it actually happened to a friend of my next door neighbor's ex-mother-in-law's second husband's cousin's best friend's beautician .  .

P. S.:
I now keep my toothbrush in the living room, because I was told by e-mail that water splashes over 6 ft. out of the toilet.
Happy 2011

Handmade With Love Winter Giveaway: Pink Dandy

Handmade with Love Winter Giveaway

 Are you ready for another fun giveaway hop?  If so, join us along with hosts Simply Stacie, Survey Junkie, Little Yaya's, and Kelly's Lucky You for some great giveaways starting February 2nd.  With over 140 blogs participating it is sure to be a great time!  The Handmade With Love Winter Giveaway will run for 5 days and all blogs will be giving away prizes that have been made by hand especially for you. Between the Lines is lucky to be featuring some wonderful companies and I will give you little previews throughout the month of January.
Our second wonderful sponsor is one you have probably heard of if you are a loyal reader of my blog.  I have written about Pink Dandy on many occasions. Every girl and woman is a sucker for things that smell good. We all have our weaknesses. Some prefer the smell of flowers or fresh fruit. I, however, am a slave to the smell of dessert!!! Baked goods, ice creams, and even icing on its own (I know I’m weird…). No matter what scent you prefer, Pink Dandy has the perfect product for you.
  Pink Dandy carries a great variety of lotions, candles, roll on perfumes, bath products, and much more. All of her products are phthalate free and animal friendly (vegan products). “Pink Dandy is a spin off company of Raw Beauty that was created by Janae Chang in 2004. What really sets Pink Dandy apart from other bath and beauty products is that we maintain consistent quality in each and every product, ensure that our products are made with rich, natural ingredients and are knowledgeable about our customers wants and needs in skincare and candle products.

I've tried many other Pink Dandy products in the past and I've never been disappointed.  My favorites so far are the Strawberry Smoothie and Dreamsicle lotion and the watermelon lip balm.  I've also enjoyed the face scrub and Margarita Lime lotion.  When you order from Pink Dandy, Janae includes free samples with each order!  Also don’t forget to also check out her blog and leave her some love!  She is always sharing great recipes, posts, and giveaways! And stay tuned for next month's Pink Dandy Giveaway!

Let it Snow!

Snow, Snow, Snow!!!  The buzz around the Nation, is all about the snow.  I'm not sure if Virginia will ever see as much snow as we did last year, but the kids are still ready for a fun snow day!   I would love to hear how the snow is piling up in your town.  What are the newest totals???  Are you northeastern folk ready for tomorrow's next wave of snow?  How are our Southern friends dealing with the snow?  Grab a latte, put up your feet, and join the discussion!

An Unexpected Date Night

My brother and his family are soon moving to live near us.  We are all excited about this upcoming move, but until their house sells they must patiently wait it out.  In the meantime, my sister-in-law will be staying with us a few night a week so she doesn't have to commute 4 hours a day.  Last night was the first night she was staying over and the moment my husband returned from work, she shoved us out the door for a much needed date.  Having family move closer and surprise date nights....does it get any better than that???
