A Winner Is You

Nothing like end of the year award-time. Here at URG, we pride ourselves on giving you the finest and most thought provoking blogging the internet has to offer. Since that rarely happens, let's take some time to highlight the best comments this year's URG has produced.

This year's nominees for FUNNIEST COMMENT OF THE YEAR are:

Michael Shane, for:

"I like a fat man who can relax at the beach without concern of all that may be disgusted by his outward appearance."

from, "The Bee-ch, The Bietch and The Beach"

Sean, for:

"Cuba has six-toed cats and Hemmingway beer cozies. What's DR got for the tourist crowd?

from, "10 Things I Think I Think" .

Hamtser, for:

"wives are stellar and they don't slap or cuss or burn you with hot coffee in the crotch."

from, "Type Something Will Ya, We're Paying For This Stuff" .

m brock, for:

"it's not porn, sean, not real porn; reason is that it cost me less than 5 dollars, is mostly drawings, and it was my college human sexuality psychology book. You also were supposed to return it to me 3 weeks ago."

from, "Type Something Will Ya, We're Paying For This Stuff" .

me, for:

"here is my very, VERY limited take on tom york: he has a lazy eye and looks a hell of a lot like martin short."

from, "Rabbit In Your Headlights" .

Awards handed out at a ceremony earlier today include:


Totila, for:

"Cogito cogito ergo cogito sum."



Stevie, for:
"Is this some comment about the size of Carly Simon's mouth?"

Thanks for coming and like all award shows I apologize for the length, pretentiousness and ridiculous outfits. Now do one of these of your own and thus validate my creativity.

Jesse, I won't cut fresh
flowers for you. Jesse, I won't make
the wine cold for you. Jesse, I won't change
the sheets for you. I won't put on cologne I won't sit by the phone
for you.
Carly Simon, "Jesse"

Meet The Stills

Still, Kevin

Still, Great

Nothing like an "album of the year" nod for the record after your three decades worth of greatest hits are released. Trust me, "How To Dismantle.." is a better album than you first thought.

You better not pout/I'm telling you why...

Ho, ho, ho... Merry Christmas. I love my husband. How could you not... the man is dressed as Santa and handing out presents to a large group of special needs lovlies. He is truly my hero.

This weekend was a flurry of "holiday spruce" activity. Friday after school, the National Honors Society here at ole Santiago Christian school hosted a Christmas party for the Special Needs population of the greater Santiago Metropolis. Saturday was the ever racuous SCS Staff Christmas Dinner and Sunday was a Vida Joven softball game (which was hot and sweaty and not very christmas like at all).

I would now like to draw your attention to the 'hey, look at us' heading to your right. It is here the you may visually keep up to date on us. There is an entire slu of picture at the "NHS Christmas Party" link that are sure to put you in the Christmas (err, 'holiday spruce') spirit... or at least make you pee your pants. You are not require to sign up for anything. Just click 'view' the pictures and your off scot free.

Kat, there is a pic or two for you at the 'SCS Christmas Dinner'

National Basketball Association

Found out today I've adopted a NBA team as my own. I've never had one of these before. But sure enough, when the sports update that just rolled across my espn radio internet feed mentioned your Dallas Mavericks, I noticed my ears perk up. Are there any dues I need to know about or clothing I need to start looking for?

I Love What You Do For Me

Been a bit of a shaddy week. Here's a highlight.

The other day I handed out a Tony Campolo article in the attempts to ignite a discussion. Yeah, the one were he says BMW owners aren't invited to heaven.

Discussion ensued and of course (master teacher that I am) deteriorated, topped off by Emilio saying he'd rather have a Toyota Camry than a BMW.

When I asked why he responded:

"Scientific purposes."

Of course.

I am Happy.

I am happy... and let me tell you why.

Sometimes the Lord gently grabs you by the shoulders shakes the past few days off you, gives you a hug and a high five and invites you out for a good cup of coffee in order to tell you wonderful and glorious truths of Himself. This is always nice, but then there are other times when the President signs something offical that, beginning Dec. 13th, will allow you to travel from Dallas straight into St. Louis and/or Kansas City NON-STOP for a handful of dollar bills (70 of them). And still other times you find yourself watching The Lizzie McGuire Movie on a Friday afternoon because your student finally passed her math AND reading comprehension tests.

I highly recommend all of the above. They are miraculous and exhiliarating!

peanuts and teenboppers,
