I’m not positive if the above video is real because it looks more like a theatre backstage because of the clothing racks, but nonetheless, these guys have great moves!

A student’s prank on her professor could be one of the best April Fools pranks ever.
The video starts with a message:
“Our professor has a policy that if your phone rings in class, you must answer it on speakerphone. We arranged to have a friend call on April Fools’ Day.”
Students at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Mich., organized the prank. However, the Macroeconomics professor was a great sport.
We won’t spoil the fun. Watch and enjoy the awkwardness.

A Murrieta man with terminal pancreatic cancer knows he won’t get a chance to see his young daughter mark the milestones of growing up.
This month, thanks to a photographer with a vision, Jim Metz, 62, got to walk his 11-year-old daughter down the aisle.
In a backyard wedding ceremony realized by photographer Lindsey Natzic Villatoro and her friends, Josie clutched her father’s arm and walked toward a ceremony she will surely never forget.
Villatoro had photographed Jim, Josie and Josie’s mother Grace for one of their final family portraits together, according to the Riverside Press-Enterprise, which first reported the story.
Then Villatoro had an idea for Josie’s birthday, and she contacted many others who helped her create her vision.

WARNING: If you are my relative, you probably do NOT want to proceed reading! You may wish you hadn’t. The following is of a very personal and sensitive topic.
So. A friend came to me today and asked if I’d like to walk to the store with her. No, not just any store. She even showed me the ad in the paper. Here it is:
A free pocket-sized dildo! (We start cracking up laughing as others around us think we are nuts.) Nope, no nuts! I was like, ok, this should be hilarious! And I went with her and someone else. Now I had NEVER been inside a sex toy store before in my life! Yes, I was a virgin shopper. Well, not literally a virgin. I was married once and gave birth to two children from him. But it was my first experience in an adult toy store. So yes, in my mind, that is a virgin shopping experience. So this one friend of mine goes to the counter and asks the good looking sales guy about the item in the ad. There was no mention about a purchase being required so he handed us each one pocket-sized vibrator. To which one friend looks at it and says, “What do you do with it?” LMFAO!!!!! I couldn’t believe she said that! It’s like, DUH–you know! The sales guy was polite and enjoyed the humor I saw in it. He was actually very nice and came around the counter toward the back wall and opened one up and showed us how to place a battery inside and turn it on, further explaining to use it “down there” and on the clitoris. At this point we are still more giggly girls who can’t believe where we are and what is happening. The sales guy turned the vibrator on and let us touch it to feel how strong and quite capable it was. I must say, we were quite impressed that the “Pocket Rocket” really seemed like it could blast off! So we got our toys and looked around the store a little, eyeing the sights before coming home. (No pun intended–get your mind out of the gutter. Ha!) Once at home we thought of the health social work intern. She is a young college student, just finishing her last days with us. We went to her office, laughing and giggling. We had something to show her–you know, so she could go and get one to do a sex ed class, show people how to put on condoms or whatever. We were so bad doing this to her! But her reaction was absolutely hilarious! Once she realized what it was she was holding, (“Is this what I think…..?”) she was like almost pushing it away–but then she brought it back to her to look at and examine some more. And repeat. And repeat again. She could clearly not believe what was happening! She seemed so innocent. LMAO! My friends and I just thought that we would share the experience of our afternoon out. Now that I have mini vibrator, will I use it? Ha! Probably not but it will be a great conversation piece! Honestly, I prefer the REAL thing to small, hard plastic. Hey, penis envy is real! Just saying I now own a vibrator makes me feel like I have at least cum to every woman’s right of owning a penis alternative. No, I have not used the plastic penis. It is still inside the clear plastic wrapper where it will stay. This has been a LMFAO kinda day. Many thanks to my lady friends and inspirational sales guys with toys. ;)
I can’t believe I just blogged this. :-P

I type this straight from the heart. I pray all fire fighters, paramedics and other first responders stay safe and away from harm–or worse. They do things I would be afraid to do, running in to inferno buildings to rescue occupants and put out the roaring blaze. But in one other capacity in their rescue of people (and other living things), I have a little more experience with. The rescue calls when someone is sick or injured, not due to fire and smoke, these men and women are always at the ready. I live in a building with about 30 people. They come around frequently. Last night they were here yet again. I didn’t get all of the numbers on the trucks, but they surprised me and an abundance of fire fighters arrived to care for someone with breathing problems. We actually had a ladder truck outside, then an engine, and finally the ambulance crew. Things were under control and not too hectic. Of course there was some joking around–by the firemen, as well as, um, me. Okay, another person or so may have joined in a little, but I was the main culprit giving the firemen some friendly harassment. Example: One other resident commented to fireman on what big feet he has. She was serious. He came back and said, “well, you know what they say about guys who have big feet?”. Here I smirk. My friend asks him what. The fireman hesitates slightly and says, “they have big boots”. It went on and this fireman joked that a different fire fighter in the group had even bigger feet. Ok, I couldn’t resist! I said, well, maybe he could show us? (Hee hee!) The banter back and forth continued from there. Overall, considering the circumstances, it was almost a good time! I really like the crew that was on last night. They had an awesome sense of humor and were very friendly and social. The one guy commented that it (being here on the call) was kind of like an episode of Chicago Fire. That had already crossed my mind. The one fireman had reminded me of a guy from that TV show. I mentioned it to him. He laughed and told his buddies, “Seeeee?”. I guess he had a small part in the show before. Very cool! Anyway, no matter what the personalities of these wonderful first responders who hopefully show great care and concern for total strangers, I will say prayers for their safety. Even better if they have the personalities of the men who were here last night, Monday night. God bless you gentlemen. And hugs to you.
Sometimes I think that I am too nice. But is that really possible too be too nice? No. I am just very compassionate. It’s almost to a fault. People come to me for help and I am glad to offer it how I can. I’m not a doctor but I have received some certificates in health care. Sometimes people are dependent on the extra support. Being “on-call” can be a bitch! I’ve had to set limits at times. The neediness and dependency can really drive me crazy! On the other hand, I have an over-abundance of compassion and understanding. I realize that everyone has some sort of issue at some time or other, mild or severe, acute or chronic. I myself have faced PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), the eating disorder anorexia, borderline personality, and ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). I am doing well now, but for some signs and symptoms of PTSD yet. The slightest comment or action by someone could trigger emotions and bad dreams. Yes, it’s hard that others who have never experienced PTSD don’t understand. Thankfully, I have identified with a couple people who try to understand and have been very supportive. I know how it feels to have someone there in a time of need. It feels awesome! So when others come to me for help–to use me as a psychotherapist–or for health advice or whatever–I accept the challenge. I find gratitude in observing positive changes in “my patient” who comes to me for support. The moment something “clicks” is so very inspirational to me! That is my fuel! Like a gift from God. There is nothing better than to feel the moment of positive change. My door is open if you need extra support. Ms. Awesome will see you now.
