Size Matters

Posted in Nonsense with tags , , on June 28, 2014 by Bob

When you are losing weight. It does for me anyway … with my pants. I have been steadily losing weight and I am in between sizes right now. My old pants are too big and my new pants are just a hair too tight to wear comfortably. They fit, but not well. Whose idea was it to make sizes go by 2? I know that there are SOME in-between sizes but, they are few and far between. I know I could also suck it up and lose that extra half inch around my waist but it isn’t that easy. I have plateaued. It is frustrating.

I am also frustrated by the fact I need to replace all my Hawaiian shirts. While they fit when I bought them, now they pretty much all look like I got them at an Israel Kamakawiwo’ole estate sale. I have a lot of shirts. It is going to be expensive. I might have to open a kickstarter campaign.

May’s Dead Celebrities – Get ‘Em In The Ground Before It Gets Hot!

Posted in Celebrity Deaths, Nonsense with tags , , , , , , , on June 1, 2014 by Bob

In the good old summer TIME! I don’t know what song that is (I think it’s from a movie) but a local car dealer Harry Schmerler used to sing that one line in one of his commercials for some reason. He called himself the singing Ford dealer. He is long since gone and he really has nothing to do with this other than the summertime line. Summertime is finally fast approaching. The celebs that kicked in May got to experience their very last non-spring. Good thing they took off before the warm weather. Heat and dead bodies is almost as good a combo as snow and the color yellow. Let’s get to it shall we?
