An Obituary For Someone We All Know

I got a good kick out of this.... Hopefully you will too

London Times Obituary

An Obituary printed in the London Times........

'Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend,
Common Sense, who has been with us for many years.
No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth
records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable
lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why
the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair;
and maybe it was my fault

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies
(don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies
(adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned
but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a
6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a
classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash
after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly
student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for
doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in
disciplining their unruly children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get
parental consent to administer sun lotion or an Aspirin to a
student; but could not inform parents when a student became
pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became
businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their
victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend
yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar
could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman
failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled
a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and
Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; his son,

He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers;

I Know My Rights

I Want It Now

Someone Else Is To Blame

I'm A Victim

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized
he was gone. If you still remember him, may want to pass this on.
If not, join the majority and do nothing.

So I normally do not pass along (or receive them) these type of
posts, but I was reading some of them from my friends and I
thought it would be neat (for lack of a better word) to see what
memories people had of us together.

1.  Leave a Comment on my blog.  In the comment, recall one 
memory that you and I had together.  It doesn't matter if you 
knew me a little or a lot, anything you might remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how 
many people leave a memory about you.

So dust the cobwebs off the old memories and surprise me 
with something you might remember...

So I got an IPHONE 3G...
I debated but mostly for only one reason.
I have my cell phone through Rogers, and Adam has his
through Alliant.   WELL - Rogers is the only carrier in Canada
who is going to be carrying IPHONE's for a while and well as
much as I wanted an IPHONE (and I do love her) Adam I am
sure wanted one more.. We are waiting for the family plans to
come out and for him to find someone who would like to take
over his amazing plan with Alliant he has had for YEARS.

SO for the time being, I am nice and let him play on mine.
I love it... I really should not love it as much as I do... but I do.

It is amazing how fast time goes by.
I cannot believe it is only one more month, 30 days, 
before Adam and I get married.  Some days I cannot
contain my excitement and the other mornings I am still
sleeping and as soon as I wake up my excitement returns.
Things seem to be flowing along nicely.  A couple hick ups 
but all in all I am a very calm bride to be and feel like I have
a decent hold on the planning.  Today the RSVP's are due.
I actually am quite happy that I will not have track too many
people down to get their meal choices.  
Adam is gone during the weeks this whole month of July
finishing his Masters, and though it has been hard to have
him away, I have plenty to keep me busy with the planning
and my own work.  We are both looking very forward to the
Honeymoon in Hawaii.  We are staying where they call it

I am also very excited to have my sisters home with me and
to now have them stand with at the ceremony.  Sadly my
brother will not be able to get home as it is a long way from
Korea to get here..  I have in my head just how things will go
and I am sure there will be a few things which will not go 
quite as smoothly, but regardless of how things go the end 
result will be just as I want it, me, married to my best friend.
