Questions I'm Too Lazy to Google

I think I remember hearing that Kerry got Secret Service protection during his failed run. Is that standard for all presidential candidates? And if so, when does it end? As soon as they declare defeat- "Sorry, you ain't the Prez and we don't care."

Read-along DVDs. Didn't parents actually read to their kids once upon a time, instead of plopping them in front of the TV and pretending?

If someone's running in the dark with black clothes on, what's the point of having a reflective stripe across his chest? By the time you see that, you could've hit the rest of his body already.

How far around the world do you have to go before you're behind in time again instead of them being ahead of you?

Does the extra filling in the Double Stuf Oreos really clog your arteries that much faster?

And when that you're done pondering all that, make sure you go to Becca's and wish my girl a happy birthday. (But no clowns. She doesn't like them).

I can't answer all of these, but I'll tackle the Oreo question. Yes. It does clog your aerteries twice as fast.

No! the oreos are not a problem unless you chew them. I know this because I am a guy.
That sort of settles it doesn't it?

Some of this stuff sounded like a Galagher routine.

John Kerry got secret service protection? I guess they thought he might trip over his feet. I haven't tried those oreos yet. I guess I'll have to buy a pack. I used to read to my kids. I hope my daughter is reading to our grandson.

I , too, wondered about the read-along DVD's, and parents who plop their kids in front of the tv. . . I also wondered about the DVD's in the cars for the kids. Isn't looking outside the windows at God's beauty good enough?? Or, how about just having fun talking about stuff with your kids??

Is that true? Kerry still had secret agents with him after the election? Hmmm...interesting.

What about this question:

Why don't you ever see presidents wearing sunglasses when they are outside---I'm not talking for press conferences and speeches---just when you see him get off a plane or if he is just outside playing golf-----no sunglasses... His eyes are squinting more and more each time I see him.

Becca's birthday????????? Wear's my clown suit???

Yes, to the Oreo Question.
The candidate gets protection in case he wins and becomes the president. Whomever doesn't doesn't get the protection. They're left to fend off the bad guys like we ordinary citizens.

The way I see it if something is going to kill me, death by Oreo is the best way to go!

Yeah, Kerry got Secret Service protection. I remember Kerry was snowboarding and ran into one of the S.S. agents assigned to protect him. Kerry, class act that he is, blamed the agent and swore at him. That'll encourage them to take a bullet.

Mmmmmm, Oreos....
Huh? Did you ask a question?
Can't think, off to go find some Oreos and make quadruple stuff masterpieces.

The reflector provides an aiming point.

I love an oreo as much as the next, food junkie, but those nasty things seem to be clogging little arteries around continent. I always say, it's all fun and games till one little kid has a heart attack.

The bad news is they have a heart attack so you have no one to play with, but the good news is, you get the rest of their cookies!

I'm one of the mama's who read to their children. I also sang to them nearly every night. I would take the time after they were all tucked in, to lay on the bed with them and give them this special time they all remember, even though they are grandmas now.
If the dishes didn't get done some nights, so what? We don't remember the undone chores. We do remember our time together.

John Kerry, as with all presidential candidates, was assigned a Secret Service detail. Want proof? He's still alive, ain't he?

DVDs: Yes, I learned to read before I entered 1st grade, and that was way back in ancient times when almost nobody went to kindergarten and preschool didn't exist.

Reflective clothing for runners: Makes 'em easier to find...before and after they've been run over.

International date line: Cross it one way, you gain a day, cross it the other way, you lose a day. But in the end, you've neither gained nor lost anything, in reality. Just an illusion.

Double-Stuff Oreos: Yes, arteries clog twice as fast, assuming you eat the same number of them as the regular ones.

Finally, what's the point of wishing someone "Happy Birthday" if you can't do it with clowns?

Dude, that whole time zone thing freaks me out. I can't even think about it.

LOL! You have the best questions. I'm giggling like a schoolgirl.

Double stuff! MMmm. But...what if you cut it in half?


I hate the dateline...makes filling out travel vouchers a nightmare. "Ma'am, how did you come back before you left?"

"Ummmm, dateline?"

I have my clown suit ready! Muwahahahaaha!

"John F Kerry needs no stinking secret service men, he is captain of his own sinking 'not so swift' boat. He has super powers of imagination and will morph into another year or country if needed to make his story sound better.
He is like, dare I say, a god. We need him, he came so close to dethroning the evil BUSHHHHHH (sneer) If only they have not stolen Ohio ( Neil Young musical interlude) That the way it always is - those neocons returning to the scene of their many crimes.
and now did you hear? Dick Cheney had a bionic implanted UN HEART from Haliburton and is going to live forever and George is going to appoint him to the Supreme Soviet so they can ruke the world together forever! AHHRRGGG !

Hold on the nurse is bringing me my medication.......
