though the Hoosiers came up short tonight
Marco Killingsworth is unstoppable
uhhhm. yeah. and that knocking you hear. . . is tom izzo's knees.
I will say this and this only (to Wes). Watch what you say about Pdiddy (Davis). BTW, he's not even our go to guy (3rd or fourth man, i.e. Spencer Mackuenik). Watch ESPN tonite for a double header 7:00 - 9:00 and 9:00-11:00. You will get a good look at the 2 top teams in the both the Big Ten and ACC. For all you haters alike of MSU this year, you may want to check ou Mo Ager. 46'' vertical. Oh yeah, that's right, Jason Richardson sucks too. Whatever. We'll see in MArch. BTW, Wes has gone all Indiana for sports...oh wait..except UofM. How convenient.
I'll be finishing up my master prog final papers and watching the the spartys hit the hard court, win or lose. Note to Jake: You can only have one loyalty and we know you're a dukie (I saw the tear and the bird you filled IZZO last march at uncle Bob's oasis. As far as I'm concerned, the only one who has some form of green is Benny's half semester tuition he payed. Remember when we saw the MExicans almost knock off the National Champs. Chispas. I'm out.
In jest and jeer,

Watching the MSU Gonzaga game last night got me pumped up for college B-Ball. Tough one for Sparty to handle but a great game. Spartans were done in by Adam Morrison (who has the sweetest stache) after being bailed out three times by Maurice "Ager" Bomb. Anyways, watch out for our Hoosiers as a silent killer in the Big Ten Marco Killingsworth is huge!! More on sportscenter...any predictions? put it on the line right now. Out-

I haven't blogged for awhile, so I thought I'd show you a picture of what we think June and Pete's band photo would look like if they were in a band together. I wonder what their band name would be?
This picture was taken last week before we took them to B-Town for the weekend and ended up giving June two baths--one for rolling in a surprise pile of nastiness in the meadow, and one for jumping into the Lampi's leaf-filled pool (we still don't know how she managed to get out).
We missed you guys this weekend and wish we could've been in california too.
Anyone have any idea which direction the christmas-gift rotation is heading this year?

Also, when you woke up after spending a lonely nite at my crib during the MSU years..year. You weren't on the floor next to my air mattress, but somehow YOU were the one that kept my fragile body war that cold November nite.
I'll continue with more later...My wife just gave me the call to get her a BIG APPLE BAGEL HAM AND EGG ON WHEAT BAGEL WITH LITE CREAM CHEESE etc. I'm out.
OH yeah, go to this site...Happy Birthday Bulldog

wes and sarah
P.S. Wes and Sarah we miss you and wish you were here!
When you decorated your entire room in Mexican motif. When you used to drive me to school every morning. When you used to invite me to go swimming at Adam Sunday's and we would run accross the meadow. Whenever you would design and implement crazy projects around the house. When you used to put hot sauce on everything. When you helped me and Steve distribute a u-haul full of brush all around Livingston County. When you jumped out of the car after I kicked it in neutral I was nervous at the time but now I think it was awesome. When you hit a Home Run off Mike Deford in Wolverine. When you sacrificed your body for the team and took that wicked hit from that South Lyon kid. When we were roommates in College. When we went to Mexico for Spring Break and I got really sick and you took me home. When you married Becky. When we would go to Burger King after church and you would make the best 'suicide' ever. Ah, hiking and biking and sledding to suicide and U-hill. When I crashed your car and you were not mad. Your love for T-Bone and all his bilingual demon killin'. Your middle school fear of Kathy Tait. Big pimpin' in your new Volvo. and on and on and I'm forgetting so many things. But Happy 25 Benjamin Lee. Now let's give it up for #76, one last time, King Jesus is All!

Hello, my name is Joel
I work in the tax preparation factory
One day, my boss came up to me and said
Joel are you busy
I said no, so I prepared the 1040 with my right hand
Hello my name is Joel .....
This is my work photo. Who's that sexy korean?
JDE -JOURNAL, TAXES-The Tax Magazine, November 2005 vol. 1
Are your tax savings plans in line as we approach the end of the calendar year?
Advice from the family expert:
Andrew - Don't file your 1040. - Your federal tax dollars go straight to a government that supports large corporations and is controlled by the political donations of the capitalist machines that put those politicians into office. All the while, ignoring global economic issues, the marginalized of society and spending your tax dollars on a war that the rest of the world does not support, while our educational system at home is falling apart and our own citizens are unable to pay for medical needs because of a health care system that is in shambles compared to the rest of the world.
Jacob & Abb - You're taking way too much on your housing allowance - watch out for the IRS - Just cause you prayed before your meal at the restaurant doesn't mean it qualifies as a clergy deduction
Uncle Bill - You need to cut back on those capital gains
Aunt Lena - Don't let uncle bill get caught up in those get rich quick investment schemes
Wesley & Sara - withholding nothing on your paychecks for taxes is NOT acceptable nor wise -
Ben & Becky - having a child is a great tax savings plan, not only do you benefit from the dependent deduction and exemption you also qualify for the child tax credit. Just ask Anna and David. You think it's just chance that they're having another baby before the close of 2005? Tax deduction baby -His name is going to be Reitoff (writeoff) Jinkins
Gramie - sell, sell, sell!! Southern hasn't done didley for you in years. At what price did you buy IBM? MY WORD!!!!!

Hey, got some free seconds here to shoot and idea at y'all. Knowing that this is the first in many years that during the holidays EVERYONE (i think) will be around the B-town area. I know the Lampis' are headedn to Chi-town for a couple of days after Christmas, but will be back in town before New Years. wondering if we can have a FIESTA like the past over at the Lampi's Casa in B-town for the New Years Bowl Games. I know our perspective schools probably won't be bowling on that day (if even ever STATE!!! que paso?), but it might be fun to get everyone punch drunk j/k. and to catch up. What do you think?
Also, wanted to know if everyone would like to, when they (the bowl brackets) come out, have a little competition like the NCAA b-ball tourney. You can fill out your bracket early December and send it to me through an attachment via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). I'll be the bookee...sp? Bragging rights till April for the winner (and NO NEWMAN!). BTW, things will slow down a bit for me after December 2 with MSU holiday recess and semester finishing, so I'll be able to focus on priorites like BCS bowl brackets. HA! How are your classes, Abigail! Mucho reading, no?
Just thinking about everyone and how much we miss you guys. Paz y armonia.
