RTT - I've renewed my love of Stumble Upon.


Keely = random
Now, figure out the algebraic equation.

I've added Stumble Upon back to Firefox browser and have become hopelessly addicted AGAIN! I have no will power. I can't seem to resist spending copious amounts of time stumbling. I need to take up a healthier habit. Like drinking. Oh wait! I already do that.

I added Stumble Upon and my computer power adapter died. Do you think there is a connection? (a connection. Get it? Ha! sometimes I crack myself up)

I stumbled upon this.

It made me chuckle.

Because there is this whole group of people that think that their pets prefer to eat vegetarian. Sure, I limit my puppy to a mostly vegetarian diet but only because she'll scratch herself to death if I don't. That being said, I know that if I were to die in my house and no one found me for a few days. My pets would snack on my rotting corpse before they would head out to the vegetable garden. My looking at them wouldn't stop them.

If you look around hard enough you'll find grant funding for just about everything.

Gift from Hugh M. Hefner Foundation to Preserve Historical Stag Films

"Thanks to a generous gift of $30,000 from the Hugh M. Hefner Foundation, The Kinsey Institute is beginning the task of restoring and converting selections of the unique historical Stag Films Collection to digital mode."

I sat in a meeting yesterday that was all about applying for grant funding for a digital history of health and racism. We were trying to come up with all the places we could find funding. Maybe we should change the title to health, racism, and wild monkey sex. It sure would open a whole new pool of funding.

Magazines and newspapers are slowly but surely falling victim to this new thing called the internet. So why is it that I still get two WSU alumni and AARP magazines every month? They seem to find me as fast as I move to a new address. So, you would think that their crack team of researchers would figure out that JR and I have the same last name, graduated from the same school and are both over 50. Not to mention live at the same address. Save a tree guys!

Okay, I've got to get my 50 year old carcass to the gym so my dogs don't think I'm dead. I'd rather they wait to start gnawing on me.

Head over to The Un-Mom for more random.




  1. Let's hope it doesn't come to your dogs eating your rotting corpse. Ew.

  2. I'm pretty sure that whoever runs the alumni association at the Univ of Arkansas used to work for the CIA. Every time I move, they have my new address and phone number before I can even send out change of address cards. It's kind of creepy.

  3. Grab the Hefner money while you can. According to, "In 1999, the stock sold for $36 a share. Today Playboy closed at $3.14. The magazine sells for $5.99."

  4. And the junk mail. I swear a forest is delivered to our mailbox everyday. Not just junk mail...stupid companies we have investments in that I never even open. They are the worst offender.

    Oh yes. On to more important things. Is eating your poo--talking about my dog--sort of vegetarian? It turns into a sort of fertilizer after all.

    What is stumble upon? Always something new for me to learn.

  5. I haven't done Stumbleupon in a couple of years.

    Have a great RTT

  6. Heh, thanks for reviving my faith in the awesomeness of teh interwebbies.

    I've never understood the whole 'vegetarian pet' thing. Really, dogs in the wild are omnivores, so I guess it's not like they ONLY eat meat. But still - they're opportunists, they don't care if their opportunity had feelings...

  7. Vegetarian dog--isn't that an oxymoron? Dogs eat meat. Same goes for cats. People are weird.

  8. My dog is an omnivore. His favorite meal is meatloaf, mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli with butter.

    You think I jest.

  9. I need to start using Stumble Upon again. It's been too long.

    I'm sure my cats would eat me in a second.

  10. You goof! You always make me laugh.


  11. Thank you so much. I am really relieved. I'd been worrying about the loss of the many classic stag films which are poorly archived in moldy stock rooms, etc. Hopefully, with the help of this grant, many of the great ones will even be digitally restored to their earlier glory. Thank God.

  12. Pretty sure my dog would eat me too, she eats anything. AARP has been sending me stuff for years and I won't be eligible for more than 10. How many trees is that?

  13. At the risk of seeming like I just stepped out of the dark ages - what's stumble upon?

    And I'm sure your dogs would lick your face to try to revive you many, many minutes before they were tempted to gnaw on your bones.

  14. I can't figure out StumbleUpon at all!!!

  15. That's exactly what my husband says whenever I wax poetic about our four cats: "If they ever run out of food, look out!"
