This is my site. Cool, huh? If you don't like it, well, I guess it lives up to its name for you, then.

This one is for you, Jeff.

A few weeks ago we all went out to eat at Denny's. We had a coupon, and the kids like breakfast food. However, there are two guys at the booth next to us, and one of them won't stop talking. He's talking all about "lifestyles" and work and stuff like that. For some reason, I thought he was a clergyman of some type, telling the other guy (a younger guy, practically a kid) to clean up his act. Why he would do that at Denny's, I have no idea, but that's what popped into my head. Although I started to wonder the second time he answered his cell phone...

Suddenly the talkative guy asks, "How would your life change if I pushed three thousand dollars across this table to you?" The other guy responds, "Well, I'd have a lot more free time, I wouldn't have to work..." I almost turned around and snorted at him. What a maroon, as Bugs Bunny might have said. Poor guy doesn't realize that $3000 is virtually nothing -- OK, it's 4 months rent for us, but it's not gonna get me out of a job.

The horror quickly dawned on me when the talkative guy starts talking about this great website, and how they sell all kinds of stuff... I mouth across the table to Heather, "Amway!" Sure enough, "the site is quixtar.com" (I'm not sure of the spelling, and frankly don't want to know. I know enough to know that they don't use the name Amway anymore because of the stigma, and push the name of their site instead.)

Anyway, my question for the Amway salesman is -- if you really want to impress someone with how much money you're making, why in the world would you take him to DENNY'S????
