Just a Girl

If you are ever in doubt as to whether to kiss a pretty girl, always give her the benefit of the doubt.

Thomas Carlyle
(04 Dec 1795 - 05 Feb 1881)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Today we have another rerun Newsletter from exactly four years ago today, because it's just so easy and I'm just such a slacker.

   WOWZERONI-RINI!!! That's just astonishing - to me, anyway... Thanks so much, Chris!


     From Me ('65) of IL - 09/16/09 - "The Daily Press and The Times-Herald, Tuesday, April 26, 1960":

   These two old newspapers were saved in our family papers.  It includes several items of interest to us, so I scanned and posted them throughout the website for our archives.

  From My Friend,  Judy Bundy Bowermaster (Litchfield HS, IL - '59) of IL - 09/16/09 - "Swine Flu Advice- LATEST FROM THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT":

I've felt like this! Does that count?

If you wake up looking like this,

don't go to work!

   I'll try to remember that! Thanks, Jude!


       From My #5 Son, Nathaniel Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '97) of IL - 09/16/09 - "That Wal-Mart website I was talking about":

http://peopleofwalmart.com/

   Oh. Oh, my. I'm aghast. I just went to the Glen Carbon Wal-Mart Tuesday, but I was only there 15 minutes. I suppose I was concentrating too much on finding the seven items I wanted and leaving, rather than people watching. I must do better next time. Oh, MY! Thanks, Faniel!

FINALLY:

From ArcaMax Jokes - 09/16/09:

Art Supplies

I used to work in an art supply store. We sold artists' canvas by the yard, and you could get it in either of two widths: 36 inches or 48 inches.

Customer: "Can you please cut some canvas for me?"

Me: "Certainly, what width?"

Customer: (confused and slightly annoyed) "Scissors?"

*************

Collect Call

My mother was away all weekend at a business conference.

During a break, she decided to call home collect.

My six-year-old brother picked up the phone and heard a stranger's voice say, "We have a Betty on the line. Will you accept the charges?"

Frantic, he dropped the receiver and came charging outside screaming, "Dad! They've got Mom! And they want money!"

Just a Girl

Written by Gwen Stefani
b. 03 Oct 1969)

and

Tom Dumont
(b 11 Jan 1968)

Recorded by No Doubt, 1995


Take this pink ribbon off my eyes
I'm exposed
And it's no big surprise
Don't you think I know
Exactly where I stand
This world is forcing me
To hold your hand

'Cause I'm just a girl, little ol' me
Don't let me out of your sight
I'm just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don't let me have any rights
Oh... I've had it up to here!

The moment that I step outside
So many reasons
For me to run and hide
I can't do the little things
I hold so dear
'Cause it's all those little things
That I fear

'Cause I'm just a girl,
I'd rather not be
'Cause they won't let me drive
Late at night
I'm just a girl,
Guess I'm some kind of freak
'Cause they all sit and stare
With their eyes
I'm just a girl,
Take a good look at me
Just your typical prototype
Oh... I've had it up to here!
Oh... am I making myself clear?

I'm just a girl
I'm just a girl in the world...
That's all that you'll let me be!

I'm just a girl, living in captivity
Your rule of thumb
Makes me worry some
I'm just a girl, what's my destiny?
What I've succumbed to
Is making me numb
I'm just a girl, my apologies
What I've become is so burdensome
I'm just a girl, lucky me
Twiddle-dum there's no comparison

Oh... I've had it up to!
Oh... I've had it up to!
Oh... I've had it up to here.
