misc.

Every time I login with new Blogger it says, "remember me?" and I say "YES." And the next time I log in, it says, "remember me?" I give up!

Here is a cartoon I drew for the cartoon correspondence course I signed up for over three years ago.

I never finished the course, because every time I send in another assignment, I literally have to beg the guy to send it back to me, months after I send it. Over and over again, he cannot remember ever seeing it, he lost it, he finally finds it, and sends it back, after I send him letter after letter (he prefers not to email). I have been selling my cartoons anyway, so I don't feel so bad about not finishing the class. On the other hand, maybe he wouldn't lose all my things if I'd paid him using the three-payment plan, instead of sending him one check for the entire course.

I love my dog. He is the cutest dog in the whole world.

I think the grossest food that people eat is ham salad. Ever since the first time I laid eyes on it as a child, I thought it looked like lunch meat that somebody chewed and then spit out.

I learned something last weekend. I had no idea that the sleep ingredient in Tylenol PM/Advil Pm/Unisom is the same ingredient in Benedryl, Diphenhydramine. I find it very strange that on one product it's called a sleep aid, and on another an antihistamine. And that being the case, everyone knows that Benedryl can cause drowsiness, but that doesn't stop people from using it while driving, operating heavy machinery, performing brain surgery, etc... while one would be less inclined to do those things if the same product is labeled as a sleep aid.

We watched the Pursuit of Happyness again on DVD after seeing it once in the theater. That was a really good movie. If you are an Amazing Race fan, you will notice that Tyler Mcniven, of the "hippies," was in that movie. The extra DVD features were very interesting.

This is the first time I've used little starry things to separate the topics in one blog post. I got the idea from Doozie a long time ago, but this is the first time I've used it.

I like the randomness of this post!

Sorry Blogger is having a hard time remembering you!
*****************************
I took a correspondence course in writing for children and teenagers, but my instructor was always very prompt in responding to my assignments. And she used e-mail. Sorry your experience didn't turn out that way! I like your fishing bird, by the way!

Skippy is very adorable -- and soft! I hope I get to see him again someday!
*****************************
That is truly disgusting looking...you're right about it looking like ABC food...
*****************************
Interesting about the sleep aid thing...if I ever have to have brain surgery, I hope my surgeon doesn't have a cold and take an antihistamine that is really a sleep aid.
*****************************
That was a great movie...Will Smith is an excellent actor!

Sarah, you get the award for leaving me my longest comment ever!

Aunt Jo said...

Jenn, maybe you should send a cartoon of some money as payment.

You know I hate SPAM and all it's look alikes....why did you make me gag? That looks like what the dog hacked up last night.

Aunt Jo said...

PS Skippy is the cutest dog!! I want to sniff his fur. I bet he smells good.

Beanie said...

AJ wants to sniff skippy's butt? gross!!! she is gross....that ham salad is gross too. I like your post, it is very informative. That cartoon guy could use a boot upside his back!

I loved that pursuit movie it made me cry. You guys need to watch Reign over Me. That was SUCH a good movie.

Hey i like the star things! Doozie is a creative chick.

Yep, the ham salad did not look very appetizing.

I knew that about Benedryl and used to buy that instead of a sleeping aid. You make a very good point about the drowsy issue.

Jenn said...

aunt jo, the dog? did you get a dog?

doozie, I want to see that one. We should go to the movies... we have a gift card we haven't used yet.

layla, :) I'm glad I found your blog again. thanks for stopping by!
