Her name was Friday Fragments

I don’t know if Mrs. 4444 has time to visit all the blogs joining her FF feature. So I won’t take the chance of talking about her here because I never know if she will browse by. I suggest you browse by her blog and check out the other FF bloggers.

I direct this question to any Wisconsinite - Hey der, did the Wisconsin Democrats stay in Illinois long enough to lose their accents?

Mommy's Idea

Happiest man in America - yet another survey result.

For the last three years, Gallup has called 1,000 randomly selected American adults each day and asked them about their emotional status, work satisfaction, eating habits, illnesses, stress levels and other indicators of their quality of life.

Really?  I missed my call I guess.  So if I hung-up on the survey taker I assume they would mark me down as unhappy. 

Oh, want to know who the most unhappiest person is? - his wife. His constant over the top attitude drives her nuts.

I’ve been wanting to use the above photo for something.  I’m just not sure of what.  I thought of “Lady I don’t like fish!”
Any suggestions?

Here is a “tick you off” survey - Some 42 percent of the more than 1,000 millionaires surveyed by Fidelity said they did not feel wealthy. Respondents had at least $1 million in investable assets, excluding any real estate or retirement accounts. In otherwords, at least $1 million in money they could get their hands on.

Anyone feel sorry for those 42 percent? 

I sure don’t. I can feel wealthy with much much less to invest. Just having anything to invest is a blessing. Ever have one of those days when getting your hands on $20 is tough?

I’ve been told, “boy you ain’t a blogger just a crazy with a keyboard”.

Lady Blogs (see Blog O’Cheese funny post)

I had a reader once admit that she thought I was a woman blogger. I guess she just assumed this because she read mostly lady blogs or maybe I didn't use the word fart enough.

I know St. Paddy’s Day is over but I just want to share a favorite Irish Blessing:
“May those who love us, love us; and those who don't love us, may God turn their hearts; and if He doesn't turn their hearts, may he turn their ankles so we'll know them by their limping.”

Her name was Lola.
(extra points - and who could ask for more?) Where did she work and what did she wear in her hair?

It does seem like man blogs are few and fart between.

lisleman said...

that's the best comment I've read all day. I might be using "few and fart between" for a post title soon (of course I'll credit you). thanks for the laugh and fart.

rebecca said...

She worked at an oyster bar and wore a hibiscus in her hair?

lisleman said...

You get a half a point. Not correct but very creative and funny. I would hate to work at an oyster bar - slimy things. thanks

Kristin_The_Goat said...

I'm still trying to figure out how they found the Happiest Man in the United States? and how they determined that he was Jewish Asian American man living in Hawaii? Too funny. I guess they guy they picked was pretty happy!

Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl. yellow flowers? but she worked at the Copa, Copacabana.

I dont' feel sorry for the 42%

I'm beginning to really love your Friday Fragments. I do wish I could write what is on my mind. Yours is very lively and funny and crafty how you put the fragments together.

Lady I got to pee..that is all I could think of. How could anybody thought you are not a man when your name is lisleman?

lisleman said...

Thanks - honestly it can take a little time. I collect stuff over a number of days for it. I think it was sometime last year that I got a comment that told me about being mistaken for a woman (must be the nice wavy hair). I think she didn't pay any attention to my blog name. The blog names can be misleading. I remember being a little surprised to find out that you were old enough to have two boys (just two right?).

lisleman said...

I guess they asked 10 of thousands of people and put together a profile of one. Good, you get the full two points - perfect score. More extra credit if you record a youtube clip of it. Oh don't ask what the points are good for but if I ever open an airline I'll let you convert them for mileage points. I'm betting zero of those 42% do any blogging. thanks

Kristin_The_Goat said...

Oh, I meant how they physically decided on which Asian American Jewish etc man they were going to pick.

Well, Alex, I'll take airline points for a thousand please. No youtube video from me, but I'll keep a tally for sure. I want that mileage!

Dwmatty said...

Gallup has never called me. Or I would be on their list.

Nice idea on the picture. When all else fails, post it and say that you have no idea on how to use it. Genius.

Lola was a showgirl at the copacabana and wore a yellow flower in her hair, and a dress cut down to there.

oceangirl415 said...

How true that name can be misleading. That is why I do not feel like Ocean Girl sometimes. But we kinda stuck with our names right. Yes I have two teenage boys, One is 18, and the other is 16.

Caution said...

Add me to your Friday Fragment lovers list. Man or woman, you're the best!

Caption: "On second thought..." (Sorry. Not much creative stuff moving around this brain.)

lisleman said...

thanks - yes he did have second thoughts about sitting next to that lady. My wife took the picture so I would have to ask her if he gave any explanation.
thanks for sharing a comment.

lisleman said...

Matty - you are a full 2 "a-few-clown-short" points richer. Now those points were never considered in the happiness survey but maybe the Gallup people should give us a call and we can straighten them out.
What would you want to convert your points into? I could offer 2 points worth of advice. thanks

Tettelestai said...

i think that photo was cute!! you know, i feel sorry for those millionaire folks, really, to have so much 'stuff' but still not feel like they were satisfied. money can't buy contentment, right?? it's all in the attitude. i didn't get my phone call either for that survey... wish they had, it would have been fun!

Jene said...

She was a showgirl, and now I'm going to be singing that song in my head all day long.

What's the opposite of feeling sorry for someone? Whatever it is, that's how I feel toward that 42% of wealthy morons.

Jene said...

Oh, and that "lady blog" comment library totally made my day.

lisleman said...

thanks - grandkids are always cute aren't they. One's attitude is one of the most important factors in life. thanks.

lisleman said...

Hey that's a good phrase, "wealthy morons". You know the rules on the points are pretty strict and although I believe you have the right song stuck in you head at the moment you didn't write the actual answers. So I'm only giving you a half a point. However if the song stays stuck for more than two days, you'll get another point and secondly you should seek medical treatment in that case. thanks

Brandi. said...

Wow! Makes me wanna smack some millionaires... LOL! Ya, I have a whole stinkin' dollar in my wallet right now, but I feel just fine. :)

lisleman said...

Hey Jene has the new term for them - wealthy morons. If I could do it the best approach would be to sell them something to make them feel better.

Joanna Jenkins said...

I know that song! But why can't I remember the words? I can actually see Barry Manilow singing it in my mind but not lyrics. Dang.

I'm bad, I always say no thank you and hang up on researchers when they call-- almost always at dinner time.

As for the $1 million in the bank-- That would work for me :-)

Have a great weekend, jj

lisleman said...

Ok you get a half a point for mentioning Barry Manilow and being honest. Since the answer is in the comments already. You have a good weekend too and stay away from the Copacabana because you never know if some Rico going to pull a gun. thanks

unknownmami said...

What?! You mean you are not a lady!

lisleman said...

You are so cute.

SortaSouthernSingleMom said...

...she was a showgirl with yellow feathers in her the Copa... Copacabana
I have no idea who could ask for more? Tony, Rico, maybe even Barry?

Doreenmcgettigan said...

I will now be trying to get Lola out of my head the entire day. That is a very strange photo..kid looked really scared. Happy Weekend!

lisleman said...

He's always been good with facial expressions. thanks

StarTraci said...

Happy Friday Fragments!

No I do not feel sorry for the millionaires. We are a military family -- there are days that I have trouble getting $10 together!


lisleman said...

thanks for browsing by and thanks for your family's service. Too many people don't get how important it is.

lisleman said...

I thought I replied already to your comment but when I went back I didn't see the reply -??- probably clicked the wrong button. You have been awarded 2 a-few-clowns-short points. Now don't ask what they are good for because I don't know. You can of course suggest what the points could be used for. I'll take suggestions and then probably ignore them but it's always a start. Oh and the points can not be combined with any other offers not there are any and one point collection per customer. Maybe I should do a post about these points because I'll never remember what I just said.
OH one more thing - thanks for sharing a comment and playing along.

secret agent woman said...

At the Copacabana, with yellow feathers in her hair. God, what a cheesy song.

I once analyzed my blog with the Gender Genie - said I was male:

lisleman said...

Good post you linked to. I think guessing gender based on written words would be very prone to error. Oh you'll be thrill to know you picked up 2 points.
