    I didn’t want to do this BUT, you get cut, you maybe not, you get cut….


  16. - Nearly Normal - Monday, Jun 29, 09 @ 12:32 pm:

    Gov. Quinn in his “Sistine Chapel” look. Moses the Lawgiver has horns similar to the govs. And there is the painting of God reaching out his finger to touch mankind. Seems no one in the Pride Parade wants to be on the receiving end of that.

    Illinois Governor answers age old question, is it possible to use a sunscreen with too high of an SPF?


  23. - make it so - Monday, Jun 29, 09 @ 12:57 pm:

    Young man, there’s no need to feel down.
    I said, young man, pick yourself off the ground,
    I said, young man, ’cause you’re new in town.
    There’s no need to be unhappy.
    It’s fun to stay at the y-m-c-a…

  40. - SouthernGirl - Monday, Jun 29, 09 @ 2:00 pm:

    Once I had a love and it was divine.
    Soon found out I was losing my mind.
    It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind.
    Mucho mistrust.
    Love’s gone behind.
