official new blog's official...the new is up and running and that means I have ANOTHER new blog!

Yep. Our new website allows us to do a blog right on the site.

If you are interested in checking it out, you can go to and click on my bio page. You'll see a link at the bottom to get to my blog. Yeah...they hid it on you...I think they're a little ashamed of me...

That's the long way to get to the blog. If you want the SUPER DUPER EASY WAY!!!!!! Save this link:

Add that to your favorites and label it "Lopez's Blog" and click on it ALL THE TIME!!!

...or whenever you want to...all three of you who read this.

What will happen to this blog? I don't know. Maybe it'll go rogue. (Maverick!!!!!!) It'll probably just sit here and fade away. Or, maybe if you check back every now and then, you'll see a brand new entry. Who knows!!!!! OOOOH!!!!

That's about it for today. I'm off to make sure the new blog is working

lather, rinse, repeat

Hi folks!
Well, here we are. Back in business. Back on the saddle. Back to the wall. Back to the future. Back...ok...that's done.

I bought some man shampoo yesterday. Yeah. I usually buy some shampoo AND conditioner. It's hard to find those in "manly" scents. I usually end up smelling like cotton candy or raspberry sherbet. I can't complain because I actually love the smell of cotton candy and raspberry sherbet.

I know they make a lot of stuff for men these days and give them "manly" names like the "murse" or the "mirdle" for purse and girdle. Just say what they are!

I wondered if "man shampoo" would be called "Mampoo". Now you see the real reason I wrote this blog! I thought that up in the shower this morning and thought it was HILARIOUS!!!!!

I had to write that down. I think I'll make EVERYTHING I use manly now. I am writing this on my "manputer".

Instead of saying I use a hair dryer...I'll use my MANDRYER!

Yeah...that still doesn't make me any tougher...oh well...

I'm off to play with my dolls...errr...I mean my "mandolls"...oh forget it...they're dolls..

april fool

Hmmmm...April Fool's Day...

I don't get it. I read some stuff as to why we do this and I STILL don't get why we do it.

I know. I'm just a party pooper. I'm about as much fun as kicking a boulder...then the boulder comes to life and eats you.

Anybody out there doing anything fun for April Fool's day? I have to do some shopping...and get a haircut...then do some laundry...wooooo...isn't that exciting...

I might do something to our afternoon guy Rob Anthony. He's fun to prank. I haven't thought of anything yet...but I'll look around for something.

One of my favorite things to do is put some clear tape on the bottom of a computer mouse. Tape it over the ball and the mouse won't work. If you have a laser mouse, then it will screw up the light and make the mouse work all funky.

I think I did that to Rob last year...maybe I'll do it again. He'll never suspect that!

Ok, I'm off to try to fool April into thinking it's July...maybe it will get warmer.

comfy cows

This morning we talked about cows producing more milk because the farmer bought them all waterbeds. It's true. Cows with a nice waterbed love to make milk. I have NO idea why. Maybe some sort of liquid kinship? Does that even make sense?! I have no idea what I'm talking about...

I do know that I never understood waterbeds. Does anybody even have these anymore?

Did some folks sit around at Sealy and say, "Hmmm...we're getting killed in the bed market. What can we do that will put us back on top?"

"Well...I always loved beds...AND I love water...if only I could combine my two loves in life..."

"I've got it! Why not sleep in a kiddie pool!"

"OR! We could put all that water into a giant balloon and you could sleep on that!"

"That's totally groovy, man! Chicks will dig it." (I add that part because it just HAS to be a man who thought these were sexy enough to attract women.)

"We'll call it a Swishy Wave Sleeper."

Then, a few years later, somebody else called it a waterbed and history was made.

A few years after that we found out that the only women who thought waterbeds were groovy were, in fact, cows.

It all comes full circle. I don't know where that circle started...or where it even ends, but it sounds very zen and I'm feeling zennie today.

I'm off to sleep on water.

your name

We were talking about what your name "means" to other people. Basically, if you have the name Elizabeth or James, you are SEEN as successful. It doesn't mean you ARE, but your name gives off that vibe. Here is the top ten for what the research was.

I don't get it. I don't see MY name on there. I see my middle name, James, on all three charts, BUT I don't see that helping me much!

It's a very silly chart and I think if you are successful and your name is Abraham, then you should let the world know! You tell James to step aside and say, "It's time for Abraham to take over!"

And what is success anyway? How can to you tell if somebody is lucky by their name? What is REAL beauty?

Right? RIGHT?! That's what I thought. I start pulling out those "deep thoughts" and this study goes out the window!

Booo Yah! That chart just got a lesson in humanity by Professor Lopez!

I can call myself that now. I have a PhD. in Awesome and I just folded my diploma into the shape of a boot and kicked butt! Bam!

I'm off to change my James Jack Ryan available?
