Actually, I am snow-white silver and it is my crown of wisdom. Image

Okay, Okay...Kimi would kill me for telling this jokes but since you brought the topic up...here goes.

How can you tell that a blonde has been using a computer?




































There's white-out all over the screen. :heehee



K...one more.

How do you drown a blonde?






















You put a scratch and sniff sticker at the bottom of the pool.

I used to be a blonde as a child--white-blonde. And I tell dumb blonde jokes, too. ;)

Today after work I met a lady who is also doing Script Frenzy, has fibro, and goes to the college I work at. Was fun to meet her. One other Script Frenzy person came, too. I was in a lot of pain by the end but got five pages written, so that's good!

Kara, I think you're right about the story working better if told from the foster mom's perspective. I sent you a PM on FaceBook about everything.

Shann, my sisters went to college in South Carolina--about as far from WA as you can get and still be in the U.S. It was hard but it worked.

Prayer request... I see the cardiologist tomorrow. Please pray that he has wisdom about whether to keep fiddling with my meds or whether he needs to just send me to the electrophysiologist. I also see a new primary care doctor. I would like someone to take my sleep problems seriously, and I'd really like a spine and brain MRI to rule out MS and spine issues... Might have to get a referal to a neurologist for that. Thanks!

Good ones, Holly!

Okay... Here's a blonde joke my uncle sent a while back (he's 90, btw... hasn't joined FB--yet--but uses email all the time! 8) )
A blonde hurried into the emergency room late one night with the tip of her index finger shot off.

How did this happen?' the emergency room doctor asked her.

'Well, I was trying to commit suicide,' the blonde replied.

'What?' sputtered the doctor. 'You tried to commit suicide by shooting off your finger?'

'No, Silly' the blonde said. 'First I put the gun to my chest, & then I thought, 'I just paid $6,000.00 for these implants... I'm not shooting myself in the chest.'

'So then?' asked the doctor.

'Then I put the gun in my mouth, & I thought, 'I just paid $3,000.00 to get my teeth straightened I'm not shooting myself in the mouth.'

'So then?'

'Then I put the gun to my ear and I thought: 'This is going to make a loud noise. So I put my finger in my other ear before I pulled the trigger.'

I said it before and I will say it again... When Amy finally gets healed, it will cut my prayer time in half. And I have a lot of people I pray for.... JK. :mrgreen:

Adding the doctor appointment to me list, Little Bird. Oh and how is Mom doing today, her headache any better?

The B joke...

A blonde decides to dye her hair, and after doing so feels 100% smarter. Feeling well pleased with herself, she jumps in her car and goes for a drive in the country, where she comes across a large flock of sheep. Seeing the shepherd, she stops to chat. Feeling so smart now, she makes him a bet.

"I bet I can tell how many sheep you have out there with one look," she says with a big grin.

"How much will you bet?" The shepherd asks.

"I will bet my car against one of your sheep." The shepherd agrees, just knowing she wont get it right. She looks out across the field and say, "137"

"Wow, " the man says, shocked that she got it right on the first guess. "Well go ahead and pick out your sheep."

After carefully searching the whole flock the woman finds one she like and leads it back towards her car. The shepherd watches her with great interest and puzzlement, then walks up to her and says, "I bet you dyed your hair didn't you."

"Why yes I did," she answers with a smile. "Do you like it?"

"Yes, it looks good. But, if I can tell you what color it use to be, can I have my sheepdog back?"

I'm cobbling a bunch of words together in the hopes it will somewhat resemble a challenge piece. It's been 10 months since I entered the challenge. Feeling rusty in the writing department. Weird idea. Can't silence the internal editor. Have no clue where to find an ending. :? :!:

So, why am I doing all this :?: Rhetorical question. No answer needed. :roll:

HEY guess who just submitted an entry? LOL the FUNNY thing is is that my inspiration all came from Dora the Explorer. There was in episode that I watched with Jojo--the little girl I've been watching--the other day and Dora and Boots where going around the world in less then a day. they started in Mexico, then went to Paris then Mongolia, then Africa and then to China. Yeah so not realistic I HATE the show. Any way on Dora there is Swiper the Fox and so when they went to all the different countries there was a different form of Swiper the Fox. And that is all I am going to say, because if I say the name of the character or anything else like that and just how I worked it into the entry I could get in trouble. So my inspiration came from Swiper the Fox's "Friend" Lol Though it has nothing to do with Dora or swiper. lol

Born blonde, keeping it blonde, probably die blonde. Never offended by the jokes, jealousy is obvious. :sofa :rolling :rolling :rolling :hide

Seema, I know how hard it is to write when your brain is all fuzzy from fatigue and stress and eveything. Keep pushing and it'll come back. Blessings on your writing!

Hi Tiara! Glad you got a story in!

Shelley, cool pics! I can't quite make out both twins in the last pic, but it's a little hard since it won't show us the whole thing at a time on here. They are so cute and already growing so much. Thanks for posting!

Thanks for the prayers for tomorrow.

Elizabeth, nice to see you here! (I have a feeling that message was suppose to be a private message to Holly, though....)



Okay, okay, my dumb blonde jokes:
A redhead, a brunette, and a blonde walk into an antique shop. The proprietor comes over and notices them looking at a beautifully-framed mirror.

"You know, that's a magic mirror. If you look into it and say something true, then you get a wish. But if it's not true then POOF! you disappear."

Well, that excited the girls. They huddled up and tried to think what they'd say. Finally the brunette says, "I know, I've got something!"

She looks deep into the mirror and says, "I think I'm the smartest girl in the world!"

POOF!

The brunette disappears.

The redhead is only a little ruffled and steps right up for her turn. She looks into the mirror and says, "I think I'm the most beautiful girl in the world!"

POOF!

The redhead disappears.

By now the blonde is a bit nervous, but nonetheless she steps up to the mirror. But she takes her time. Finally she says slowly, "I think..."

and POOF!

The blonde disappears.

Challenge story submitted.

Have to be at the circus in four-and-a-half hours and I've had no sleep. :shock: It's going to be a long day. Sigh.

We are kind of at the hub of Missions in all of Southeast Asia.
Sorry Kara, I changed my mind. I WAS thinking of coming for a visit, but I think you little village is too big for me. I need my smaller town life. :roll:
If you come visit, I would gladly go spend some time in a village. :mrgreen:

Love the blonde jokes. They never get old!
