Highlights of my Day

1. Became a millionaire overnight. (see #6)
2. Told my two nephews that puntang meant pudding in Spanish
3. Five minutes later I heard one of them say, "Mom can you get me some puntang?"
4. Nearly pissed my pants
5. Saw this Story posted with a picture which I thought was a before shot...but turns out, I was wrong
6. Some website told me I'm worth $2,335,772! I am worth $2,335,772 on
7. Saw every member of Earth, Wind and Fire walk around the Taste of Chicago and not be recognized
8. Inspired by my readers, I made flyers for an underground pencil-pop and RPS league (rock paper scissors)
9. Had a prophecy to bet it all on black 23 the next time I'm at the boats
10. Avoided yet another shark attack by living in Chicago and not Florida

Actually your precious Brian does not live in Chicago. He lives close enough to claim he does. But I just thought I would unmask his evil lies. Brian, or should I say EB, I thought I knew you better than that.

Has anyone read "America: the book"? There's (among countless others) a great bit about puntang:

"While our first president, George Washington, summed up his initially modest expectations for the new job in a Farewell Address entitled I Only Took the Job for the Poontang, (footnote 6) the last two centuries have seen the president's role in government grow tremedously.

And then at the bottom at (footnote 6) says:
Poontang, of course, was a colonial delicacy consisting of the fermented juice of the rare poonberry tree.

I'm glad they didn't say "Pootie Tang", the most annoying movie I think of the 90's.
As for Florida: big sharks, big gators, big bugs, big people, big hurricaines, and lot's of sunshine.

When people head out to the ocean on a boogie borad they are thinking, "eh, the worst that'll happen is my nipples get chafed from the grip tape and salt water."

And then they are shark food. Dallas is a safe haven away from sharks like Chi-town.

That pudding story is hilarious!!!! We used to get foreign exchange students at our house growing up and we always taught them that Peanut Butter was Penis Butter!!! It was great!!!!

Its funny how the men are worthy more.... I entered in the same exact info as i did as a woman and then a man and came out worth $350 more!!!! Crazy! It couldn't have been the difference of a D cup from a 6" penis could it? Cause I know if I were to choose I would much rather take the D cup (and I just counted down a -d to get the 6")
