All In A Day's Work...

These Contractors are installing steel pillars in concrete to stop vehicles from parking
on the pavement outside a Sports Bar downtown. They are now in the process of
cleaning up at the end of the day and anxious to go home.


How long do you think it will take them to realize what they did wrong?

Dear Stella... Do I Have a Future With This Girl?
January 9, 2008 19:54

     

Dear Stella,

Recently my best friend told me she was in love with me. That was absurdly good
news to me because I've fallen for her, too. That was four nights ago and that
was probably the happiest moment of my life.

Three nights ago, all she could do was tell me why she was horrible for me, why
we would never work, and that she had been having erotic dreams about me. Only
(and this is the root of the problem) it's not me. It's a man with my
personality, voice, and chemistry with her, but he apparently resembles Brad
Pitt. Ultimately, that night ended with her saying she didn't want to hurt me.

Two nights ago, she talked nothing but sex the entire night, after revealing
another erotic dream about "me". But, at the end of the night, she said "But
the problem is I am not physically attracted to you. And I won't let myself
fall in love with you. It wouldn't be in my best interest and I won't hurt
people so I can be happy. I'm sorry I'm so shallow and that is what is keeping
us apart, but that is how I feel." I said I understood, but I was very hurt.

Yesterday, she said we should agree that the past few nights hadn't happened.
I... somewhat agreed. I don't want to think about my life without her as a
friend, but at this point, how can either of us really forget?

Today she told me of her most recent dream. It was her and I (the real me)
watching television and I kept trying to hold her hand, but she kept on
slapping me away and telling me to stop. That coincides with my dream (I have
never dreamed about her before) that we were sitting at a restaurant,
completely silent for what felt like hours. At the end, we walked out together
and I asked her "What now?" She didn't have an answer, so we gave each other a
high-five (common practice) and left.

At this point, I have no idea what to do. I want to forget, but at the same
time, I don't want to. I don't hold not being attracted to me against her. I
don't hold ANYTHING against her. I just want my best friend back. And I want to
know why she feels like this. We've apparently been in mutual love for the
better part of the last four months, and now that we admitted it to each other,
we're... here. We barely talk now. She says she doesn't need time or space, but
we went from talking 5-6 hours a day to talking about 5-6 minutes a day. What
should I do? Where is this going? Can we ever be together again in any context?



Dear Ken,

Holy Crap! Run (don't walk) as far away from this woman as you can possibly get!
Not only is she emotionally immature and unbalanced, she's MEAN.
Most people don't remember their dreams every night for days in a row. She is
feeding you a line of bull and playing with your heart. Find a healthier woman.

Stella.

January Writing Contest Winner: Love on the Doorstep
January 20, 2008 17:38

     

Love on the Doorstep

Wouldn't it be great to say that love just fell on your doorstep? For most, this is not the case.
Many people out there would agree, that they couldn't harpoon Love with a large whaling ship
in a sea of blue whales. However, for Bekah Gene, that was just the case.

A hard life had been the motto of Bekah Gene since she left her beginnings in New York to
take on college life at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. The thick accent and her
belongings were all that followed Bekah from her life in New York into her new trials and
tribulations that would follow on the campus of Indiana. Bekah's first two years, she dated a
guy pretty seriously, almost intent on calling him her future husband. However, something was just
not right, not complete.

As many people know, it takes just that one missing piece of a puzzle for it to ruin an almost
complete masterpiece, and that was just the thought that Bekah had of her and Ben. Yet, he was
everything she had wanted, and it seemed to be the right step.

Torn between emotions and obligations, it was the next event in Bekah's life that she had not foreseen.
Up until she met Kevin, Bekah had been the one to ask out her previous five boyfriends. However,
one day at the recreation center, unbeknownst to either member of this story, they would meet the one
that the universe would call one's perfect match.

Kevin was that missing piece that Bekah had needed to finish her 1000 piece puzzle. He was funny
and assertive, and more importantly, went after Bekah from the get go. Trying to respect the fact that
he didn't want to disrespect Bekah and Ben as a couple, he could not deny his feelings.

While both were unsure of where love would take them, Bekah eventually ended her relationship with
Ben, while Kevin waited patiently and actually departed Bekah's life for about a semester.

Yet, Bekah decided to move in with her best friend Jessee and the two headed out to their new
apartment. And then came the morale and ending of the story! Without either knowing, Kevin stumbled
upon Bekah's doorstep. Kevin actually knew a friend that used to live at that same exact apartment and
was looking for him, and ended up finding the love of his life instead.

I could talk about how the two dated for 6 months and how Bekah and Kevin pretty much never
frowned and continuously laughed throughout their courtship, but you don't want to hear that. Well,
maybe you do. The two continued their relationship until the day that Kevin popped the question, that
coming at the top of a long hot air balloon ride, something that both of them had dreamed about doing.
However, this time, their lives would change in the skies of Indiana.

Who says that love doesn't find its way to your doorstep?

Friday Vid: The 6 Million Dollar Commercial
January 25, 2008 07:33

This Honda commercial is amazing even if you have seen it before.
(Read the intro before watching).

There are no computer graphics or digital tricks in these images.
Everything that you see happened in real time exactly as you see it..

The recording required 606 takes and in the first 605 takes there always
was something, usually of minor importance, that didn't work. It was
necessary for the recording team to reinstall the entire set-up, time after
time, and it took several weeks working day and night to achieve success.

The recording cost 6 million dollars and it took 3 months to finish, including
the engineering design of the sequence. The duration of the video is only 2
minutes, and has turned out to be the most displayed commercial in the history
of the Internet.

There are only six Honda Accords built by hand in the whole world, and to
the horror of Honda engineers, the recording team disassembled two of them
to make the recording.

Everything you see in the sequence (besides the walls, floor, ramp and untouched
Honda Accord) is part of those two automobiles. The voice is that of Garrison
Keiller. The commercial was so well received by Honda execs when they saw it,
that their first comment was how amazing the computer graphics were. They almost
fell out of their chairs when told that the recording was real without any graphics
manipulation. They immediately approved it without hesitation- including the high costs.

Honda execs think that it will pay for itself simply because of the free showings.
(Honda is not paying one cent for you to see it.) Enjoy...
