What does imminent mean, anyhow?

Yes, thank you. I've received about forty emails with this link about Italy blowing up any minute now. You people are not really helping my Nervous Nelly status, you know. Doesn't anyone ever send out links to furry bunny rabbits and rainbows and frolicking children? I used to get emails about cool online games or pictures of really fat cats or hell, I'd even take a chain letter about the man with the knife hiding in the back seat of my car right now. Part of me believes everything I read about imminent terrorism and part of me believes nothing. Right now, they are in a knock-down, drag-out fight over who gets control of my brain. Do I take all these threats seriously or do I laugh them off and continue working as if the world is just a place filled with peace, love and flowers? Hey, did you know the bin Laden ultimatum against Europe expires today? That Jack Daniels is looking mighty good right now.

Can someone tell me how many people below to this terrorist group? I mean the sway they have over the world is mind boggling.

Michele,

Here, maybe this will make you feel better:

Dragon, somehow that did NOT make me feel better. It made me have phantom pain.

My mom is in Italy, right now. Geez. :-(

I don't know if that qualifies as rabbits and rainbows, but I thought it was pretty fucking funny.

Now that's what I'm talking about, Leftie. That was great!

Times like these, pass up the Jack Daniel's and go directly to his cousin, Jim Beam.

Michele, there are puppies on my blog right now.

That ought to help.

what was that great line in "Airplane":

"I guess I picked the wrong time to stop drinking."

sums things up nice-like, doesn't it?

Yay! A carnival of cuteness!

Easy on the alkeehaul. It'll affect your aim.

Well, they're not furry, but they are bunny rabbits

BTW, have enjoyed your blog for some time now. Keep it up!

Hang in there Michele. They can kill ya' but they can't eat ya'.

I have a close friend who was a "nervous nelly" too. I got tired of it and took her up to the range. Started with a .22 and worked up to a Sig 9mm, still a puny little round. After a couple of boxes of ammo she said, "This is fun". And, and promptly blew the K circle out of a man shaped target. My son took her to his dojo and now she shoots and takes Ju-Jitsu. She says she's much less fearful now. and this from a birth right Quaker.
