Yesterday was DaughterGeeding’s last day in pre-school for the year (she’ll go to pre-school again next year). I asked her if she was sad it was the last day of school, and that she won’t get to see some friends until next or and will never see some of her friends again. She said, “No, not really, because I get to make new friends.” Sometimes, I wish I had her perspective on things.
I’m not a cat person, but I do know what it’s like to have a lost pet. After spotting a collared but tagless cat in the neighborhood I knocked on some doors to find the owner but no luck. My next course of action was to keep the cat at GeedingManor and send an email out to our HOA communications folk, but when the cat tried to claw OtherDogGeeding I just sent out the email saying I spotted the cat in the neighborhood, but got no replies. We didn’t see the cat the next day, but he came back yesterday. WifeGeeding was able to get him in the car and took him to a vet to see if it was chipped. When WifeGeeding got to the vet, the cat darted out the car door never to be seen again.
I was looking at my Wal-Mart receipt and saw the letters O, N, T, and X next to each item. After a little research, this is what I found they represent: X – means taxable item, N – means non-taxable item, T – means taxable item on sale, O – means non-taxable sale item
I’m taking the majority of next week off from work and we are considering visiting the Perot Museum. When you visit their website, at the bottom of each page the amount you move your cursor is tracked in inches, as well as the number of pixels scrolled, and the number of nanojoules burned.
If you watched Saturday morning cartoons in the Eighties like I did, you’d be familiar with Jem and the Holograms. They are making it into a movie and Mollie Ringwald is in the cast.
When I hear Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer” I always switch the words “tiny dancer” with “Tony Danza”.
Buzzfeed had a lousy post ranking the best fast food french fries and made a reference to Dairy Queen’s crinkle cut fries. I’ve been to many a Dairy Queen in my life (I’m not saying that’s a good thing) and have never seen one that served the crinkle cut fry.
‘Nightline’ last night was challenging their viewers, or at least came up with the notion, to give up sugar for ten days just to see if it was possible, considering how it is hidden in almost everything from bread to ketchup. I might be willing to give that a try just for the heck of it, after DaughterGeeding’s birthday at the end of the month.
It wasn’t until I saw this Buzzfeed post that I realized how many television shows and movies have the same basic formula for their cast of characters. Basically, you’ll always have a patriarch, a matriarch, a craftsman, and a clown.
Seth MacFarlane has a western comedy coming out next week. Last night he tweeted a photo that makes me think there’s going to be a major Back to the Future Part III reference in the film.
