The Grab Bag Has Been Summoned

Real Estate Broker/Owner with New Paradigm Partners LLC EB #1326335

I have been summoned from my repose among the Undead by the required three mentions in blog post comments within a week, and am henceforth compelled to manifest this episode of the Grab Bag for your entertainment. To fulfill this compulsion, I have turned to my old standby Twitter, a once-trusted resource whose continued availability is as questionable as my own sense of humor.

Please enjoy these tweets responsibly.


Picked up a hitchhiker today. He seemed like a nice guy. After a while though, he asked me if I wasn't afraid that he might be a serial killer. I told him that the odds that two unrelated serial killers were in the same car at the same time were astronomical.         - @soonergrunt

“I want to pay my bill online and it says, ‘an expected error occurred.’ Did you mean ‘unexpected’?”

“No, we know about it.”

“So you’ll fix it?”


“The bill is due today.”

“Then you better get on that.”

“Don’t you want the money?”

“Not if we can repossess your house.”

Had a Craftsman wrench with a lifetime warranty break, so I called Sears and they sent a hitman.

we may never be able to affect change or make anything better but once every like fifteen years someone slips through and hits a billionaire or a politician with a pie and thats pretty good.

I hate when people ask me if my baby is a “good baby” like no he bets on illegal dog races and stabbed a kid at the playground                         - @mommeh_dearest


well YES I did throw garbage across the living room but I also purchased a “garbage offset” from some guy on the street so technically the living room is clean right now. I’m sorry you don’t understand science                                                    - @nedwards

Me in the shower: I have to leave this pre-conditioning moss and fig hair mask in for 15 minutes, which is perfect because I can simultaneously do my pink Himalayan salt foot soak!

Boyfriend in the shower: nice, this face wash is also dog shampoo

WOW! Is this an apparition or the REAL Dick Greenberg? If you are real, good to have you back. With a FEATURE too! If you are a ghost, you levitated to FEATURE status in a hurry! Was this Hocus Pocus? Did you arrive back to ActiveRain by the Magical Mystery Bus? Nonetheless, welcome back from the (well, you know)!

Dear Dick,

Thanks for the comic relief. I knew a few of the jokes already (not from Twitter).

Believe it or not, I slept all through the Trick or Treating that went on last night.  I had spent a very busy day.  I woke this morning to a bucket filled with Snickers that were never handed out.
