Going Away Party - Paula & Kumen

Here are some pictures from the going away party we had for Paula and Kumen as they will be leaving Maryland on July 1, 2008 (exactly 20 years to the day that Paula moved to Maryland with the wonderful Hall Family

Here is my dad showing Little Da (Brennan Zhao) the ropes of taking over the family business of DJing all the church dances. Brennan looks like he loves his new gig.

We can't leave out Brennan's Little Brother Clayton. Looks like he loves his soda.

As a going away present our friend/classmate Jackie put on three wonderful dances for us. The pictures are not technically in order of the dance but they definitely show case her gorgeous style

The Sexual Urge of Men and Women

I hope no one is offended by this but we thought it was so funny!!


I never quite figured out why the sexual urge of men and women differ so much. And I never have figured out the whole Venus and Mars thing. I have never figu red out why men think with their head and women with their heart.


One evening last week, my girlfriend and I were getting into bed. Well, the passion starts to heat up, and she eventually says, 'I don't feel like it, I just want you to hold me.'

I said, 'WHAT??!! What was that?!'

So she says the words that every boyfriend on the planet dreads to hear...

'You're just not in touch with my emotional needs as a woman enough for me to satisfy your physical needs as a man.'

She responded to my puzzled look by saying, 'Can't you just love me for who I am and not what I do for you in the bedroom?'

Realizing that nothing was going to happen that night, I went to sleep.

The very next day I opted to take the day off of work to spend time with her. We went out to a nice lunch and then went shopping at a big, big unnamed department store. I walked around with her while she tried on several different very expensive outfits. She couldn't decide which one to take, so I told her we'd just buy them all. She wanted new shoes to compliment her new clothes, so I said, 'Lets get a pair for each outfit.'

We went on to the jewelry department where she picked out a pair of diamond earrings. Let me tell you... she was so excited. She must have thought I was one wave short of a shipwreck. I started to think she was testing me because she asked for a tennis bracelet when she doesn't even know how to play tennis

I think I threw her for a loop when I said, 'That's fine, honey.' She was almost nearing sexual satisfaction from all of the excitement. Smiling with excited anticipation, she finally said, 'I think this is all
dear, let's go to the cashier.'

I could hardly contain myself when I blurted out, 'No honey, I don't feel like it.'

Her face just went completely blank as her jaw dropped with a baffled, 'WHAT?'

I then said, 'Honey! I just want you to HOLD this stuff for a while. You're just not in touch with my financial needs as a man enough for me to satisfy your shopping needs as a woman.'

And just when she had this look like she was going to kill me, I added, 'Why can't you just love me for who I am and not for the things I buy you?'

Apparently I'm not having sex tonight either....but at least she knows how I feel.

3 Day Boil Water Advisory

Many people have been questioning the water main break in Montgomery County. I just got this e-mail alert and felt it appropriate to pass on.

As per the attached release, a three-day BOIL WATER ADVISORY has been issued this morning for portions of Montgomery County outside the Beltway.


Contact WSSC Communications 301.206.8100

The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) is issuing a precautionary boil water advisory for Montgomery County outside the beltway, with the exception of customers who receive their water from the City of Rockville. The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission experienced a major water main break at 9:15 p.m. on Sunday evening. This resulted in the loss of water pressure or water service for large areas of Montgomery County outside the Beltway.

When water systems lose pressure there is an increased risk of contamination. Although we do not have an indication that the water system has been contaminated, as a precaution, the WSSC and the Maryland Department of the Environment recommend if you live outside the beltway in Montgomery County, that you boil all water before use. Water should be brought to a rolling boil for one minute and cooled before using. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and food preparation. The boil water advisory will continue until further notice, the water pressure is returned, the system is thoroughly flushed and the acceptable water quality is confirmed by water testing.

We expect this process to take at least three days.

In addition, Mandatory Water Restrictions are now in effect for those customers in this same geographic area. This is an effort to keep up water pressure for fire protection. These restrictions include;

* No outside watering
* No filling swimming pools
* No laundry
* No dishwashing
* Limit toilet flushing

These restrictions will remain in effect until some time later today. We regret the inconvenience that this may cause. Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You

can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail For more information, please contact WSSC Communications at 301.206.8100.

Next Tattoo?

I'm thinking about getting this as my next tattoo. What do you think? It is the Aum (Om) symbol. I am thinking of getting it between my shoulder blades or my inner arm.
