Did You Know?

Did you know …

– That if you have your fridge too cold, and you leave the milk in the back, it does NOT turn into ice cream?

– If you let your dog stay out in the sun for more than 5 minutes, she really smells?

– If you are out of shape, you should NOT make 57 trips up and down stairs cleaning out the basement?

– The theme for Spiderman should not be sung to the theme from the 60’s Batman?

– Wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube men are funny things to watch?

– I was watching Family Guy while writing this?

– It has been 7 months and I have only missed 2 days of writing this?

– I still hate mowing the lawn?

– The Goonies is a cool movie?

– I am going to be sooooo sore tomorrow?

 

Time For A Quickie

Posted in Nonsense with tags on July 30, 2011 by Bob

Today’s list:

– Buy new outside garage light

– Buy storage bins

– Vacuum living room

– Clean Kitchen

– Install new outside garage light

– Laundry

How much of it did I do?

Bought the light and did some laundry. I also vacuumed, but it took me forever with moving furniture and doing a good cleaning. I hate cleaning. I need a relatively inexpensive cleaning lady I think. That or I need Tori to grow up faster to help out.

 

There HAS To Be More To Life

Mr. Pierogi

Today on the radio I heard a commercial that I thought was a joke at first. It started by hyping a parade, carnival or some such thing and saying that it was Northwest Indiana’s most anticipated event. I was intrigued. I thought it was going to be something really spectacular. It was for Pierogi Fest.

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good Pierogi as much as the next Ukrainian Pollock, however, I don’t think that they need a parade and their own fest. I especially think it is a little sad if that is what your town looks forward too all year. I mean, most fairs and festivals have a “Miss <insert festival name>”, they have a big sign on their web page that says meet Mr. Pierogi.

Now that I am looking more at the website, I may have to go to the Polka contest. It is being hosted by  Polkahontas and judged my Mr. Pierogi himself and Mrs. Paczki. I bet the food is really good … but still … REALLY?!

It’s Only TV … Right?

Right now I am sitting watching Burn Notice. Love this show. For the un-initiated, Michael Westen is a “burned” spy who in now un-burned and sort of working for the CIA again but not really and helps people. He lives in Miami. I always knew that Miami was a hot bed of crime and villainy, but there are enough bad guys in Miami, that it has kept the show on the air for 6 seasons.

Another fun part is that he tells you exactly how to do all kinds of cool spy stuff. I think that I could be a spy based on what he tells. How to blow things up, how to sneak up on people, the best way to bug someone, etc, etc.

Ok, maybe I can’t be a spy based on what he says on the show, but it has Bruce Campbell in the cast. He plays Sam Axe. He kicks ass. Sharon Gless, from Cagney and Lacey fame also rocks. Gabrielle Anwar, hot and is a bad ass!

It’s a cool show. I am going to go now and watch it. Plus, my wife just brought me a root beer float. YAY WIFE!

Until next time, remember … “you say tomato, I say pimp.”

And Then There Were Confused Readers

If a blind man climbs a ladder to the 13th floor of a second level basement, and Big Bird flies to Russia during Ramadan, then George Jetson travels in time to see his granddaughter blow up a mountain troll from Harry Potter.

Arby’s is not good mood food and grease is not the word anymore.

MMI (motorcycle mechanics institute) is a far better name than UTI (universal technical institute)

16 men on a dead parrots chest … just won’t fit.

I Want To Raise My Debt Ceiling

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 25, 2011 by Bob

Dear politicians, I would like to raise my own debt ceiling to an unholy level so that I can quit my job and stay home with my daughter. I will pay for this by charging you a fee to rule over me and make stupid laws like telling me I can’t eat salt. If you fix my road, I will pay you a very low wage and give you a performance review once a year.

I will decide eventually IF I want to pay you back or if I just want to continue to raise my debt ceiling. I will be spending far more money than I will ever take in and you will not be able to foreclose on me, or sue me for anything.

Thank you,

Voices

 

This of course is a simplistic view but it gets the basics across. I usually don’t get political but I am really getting honked off at them messing with my TV shows.

Twinkies or Tiaras

Posted in Food, Nonsense, TV/Movies, Wacky News with tags , , , , , , , on July 24, 2011 by Bob

Recently, Some doctor that knows better than the rest of the population of the world, came out and said that overweight children should be taken away from their families and put in foster homes because their parents are providing an unhealthy lifestyle. They said that it would be far better for the child and could possibly save their lives. They will not grow up and develop diseases meant for fat adults. I think that once again, the government is trying to stick their noses where they don’t belong. There are far many more reasons that children should be taken away from their parents. The main one … Toddlers in Tiaras.

For those of you that do not know what this show is, it is children as young as 1 and 2 being forced to compete in beauty pageants. You may have read the story about the lady that gave her young child botox in order to compete. While this story may or may not have been true, there are far more sad things that they do that are true. They plaster makeup on these poor girls. They make them perform like harlots. They spray tan them. SPRAY TAN! This show is just wrong and the people that do this to their children, who are barely old enough to talk, should be thrown in jail.

Now, I will admit that if Gerber, Osh Kosh, Carter’s or some other entity wanted to photograph Tori to model, then I would be ok with that. It is not making her look like a used up 50 year old hooker.

I think that THESE children should be taken from their parents. If a fat child dies from diabetes or a heart attack, that is tragic and the parents maybe should be punished but, that is the one family that is harmed. When a former toddler in a tiara snaps when they hit 13, then their entire classroom is in trouble.

Ban the tiaras and give the children a twinkie. They might get fat but at least they won’t grow up and kill their parents.

Thundercats … Oh.

Earlier today, Cartoon Network ran the first three episodes of the original Thundercats. During these, they had little snippets of some tool at the Comic-Con doing little interviews with a couple of people from the new one, and the original voice of Lion-O, Larry Kenney. (He is also going to be a voice in the new cartoon, but more on that in a minute) It was great for me to watch something from my youth that still has not lost it’s appeal. The voice of Panthro, Earle Hyman, also just died recently by the way. Anyhoo, a great cartoon that I would love to have on DVD to show my child someday. So, it was disturbing to me, as it always is in these cases, to find out that they were re-making the Thundercats. I was mortified. I HATE re-makes, re-imaginations, re-whatever you want to call them for the most part. The only bright spot I could find is that it was actual new animation and not just re-doing the voice over with different dialog like they did to Battle of the Planets years ago.

I say that I hate the remakes and the reinventions and the “concepts from old concepts.” I think though, that after a recent revelation, I may give Thundercats a chance. The reason for this … Warehouse 13.

When I originally saw the trailers for this show and read the concept, it sounded like the tv show Friday the 13th. I even blogged about it too at the time. However, I have watched the show, and I have to admit … I like it. Jackie likes it as well. It is a fun show. Not the greatest plots or dialog or anything but it is fun. We like it with our Eureka and the other goofy shows we watch. Soooooo, I may have to at least give Thundercats a chance. I swore I was not going to watch Warehouse and after watching it one night because it was just there, now we are sad we didn’t watch it from the beginning. I think we have eventually seen all of them though.

I know it won’t be as good as the original for me because, even with the old one being cheesy and the animation wasn’t as slick as I am sure this one will be, the characters are the ones I know and love. I will give it a chance though. I wish I had sight beyond sight to know if it would be good or not.

I know everyone and their brother are blogging, tweeting, facebooking and texting about Amy Winehouse. I was going to stay out of the fray until I came on tonight to write this entry. Right before I put up a new post, I check my stats. It is just out of curiosity. I usually have between 12 and 50 hits a day. Today I had 119. That is the most I have had in one day. The most read post of mine … Celebrity Death Watch 2011: The Dead Pool …. from January of this year. It was the prediction blog. I guess everyone was looking up death pool blogs. Unfortunately, I did not have her this year. I DID have her last year, so that is the closest I have been I think. I was just a year off. So, that is why I am mentioning it again here. While I personally was not a fan of her’s, I understand that she was talented and had great potential, making it sad that she is gone. On the other hand, in the world of celebrity deaths, I am a little cold and morbid and have no problem using a dead celeb to boost my readership. Rest in peace Amy, may your demons not follow you to wherever it is you went.

Until next time, remember … “Ancient spirits of evil – transform this decayed form to WINE-RA, THE EVER-LIVING!”

Wow, I am going to get some hate mail on that one.

Am I Becoming Anti-Social?

Posted in Nonsense, Tech Stuff with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 22, 2011 by Bob

Up until a few years ago, about as “social” I was on line was going into the occasional geek chat room to talk about the latest Stargate episode. Then I got roped into joining Facebook for the new job I had. I started requesting friends and liking things. I had no clue why I was doing this. It wasn’t long before I was Tweeting, Foursquaring, Digging and whatever else I had to do for my job at the time. Now there is Klout, Google+ and god knows what else.

I don’t have time to do all of these. It is hard enough trying to be on Facebook alone. I am not sure I would be able to tweet if my blog wasn’t automatically posting there. I am not sure what the hell Klout is about or why I have any or what to do with the Klout I have. I don’t think I have dug anything for quite a while and I am not sure where I am supposed to check in on what service so that I can have a political future in a coffee shop.

I don’t really want to join Google + but I am sure that I will end up on there eventually despite my better judgement. To me it is just social overload. There is a car commercial right now, actually a couple of them that reflect my sentiment PERFECTLY! They both have a younger person talking about how they are worried that their parents aren’t social enough. The one commercial has a girl on her computer mocking her parents for having 16 friends while she has over 600 or some nonsense. They then show her parents being out and about biking with friends and then getting into their car. It may be a little different than I am relaying but you get the idea. They are making fun of how people think “being social” is about being online all the time.

I don’t want to be social only on the computer. Yes, I keep in touch with friends and have made new friends because of the computer, however, I can’t golf with some of these friends, I can’t go to dinner with most. I don’t want to attend a virtual something somewhere. I still want to have a real life.

I hope in a few years people still actually will se each other face to face occasionally.

Gotta go, I have a virtual thing to go to in 42nd Life.
