I’ve eaten so much so much pasta in the past three weeks I may not eat pasta again for a year.
Jeep has a new commercial using a Johnny Cash song that I think is real attention grabbing and well made.
It really annoys me when people bring in their umbrellas on a rainy day and open them up, set them in the middle of the floor, and let them dry inside the office place. First of all, seeing an open umbrella indoors just looks weird. Second, I hear opening an umbrella indoors is just bad luck, or maybe that was made up to keep people from drying their umbrellas indoors. Third, they take up a lot of space. Fourth, a perfectly dry area is now wet. Fifth, it’s a friggin umbrella, they are made to be water resistant and don’t need to be immediately dried – they don’t absorb water, don’t treat them like they are made out of cotton or cashmere. Sixth, normal people who love America, the troops, Jesus, and little children would never do such a thing, doing so is only craving in to the terrorists. Seventh, all you need to do when you come in from out of the rain is to close it and give it a good shake, and then tighten it if it has one of those wrap around thingies.
Yes, that was a vent and a rant all wrapped up in one.
Here’s a fast paced version of the “McDonalds McDonalds, a Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut” song sent to me by loyal reader Warren. But I remember a different version. @dcmba was nice enough to provide a link in yesterday’s comments.
Yesterday my cube mate and I kept quoting Coming to America. My gosh was that a funny movie. One of the top five comedies of the Eighties?
In the business world I often hear the phrase “pick your battles.” I hate that phrase. It makes me feel as if my thoughts or input doesn’t matter. But I think it hate the phase mostly because I can’t really ague against it.
Whenever someone mentions a sequel to a movie with the number two in the name, for instance, Toy Story 2, I always silently add Electric Boogaloo to the title.
I ran out of pre-shave oil and have substituted baby oil and I’ll be darn it works just about the same. If you haven’t tried any pre-shave oil, give it a shot, you’ll be surprised. Pre-shave oil first, then the shaving cream.
I made WifeGeeding laugh when I asked her how many babies had to die in order to make baby oil, then pondered who would have thought babies would have oil you could squeeze out of them.
I’ve been hearing some Republicans attacking Thurgood Marshall lately since Elena Kagan use to clerk for him. That may not be a good idea and could come back to haunt them.
I’ve been thinking about my dad a lot lately, and one thought that crossed my mind is how I have monthly bills that are now common ‘necessities’ that he didn’t pay when I was a kid. For instance, the Internet and cell phone bills. Oh, and the monthly subscription to bacon of the month club.
We had bookcovers in school in which the main local advertiser was a funeral home. I always thought it was a bit odd that on the front of all my books was a picture of a funeral home.
