  • We need to be careful about what we’re voting for.  After all, an 18-pound sledge to the face would be “change (you) could believe in” too, would it not?
  • The re-swearing in was dumb.  Having no video cameras at the re-swearing in was even dumber.  If you’re going to actively placate the nutjobs (and let’s not pretend that’s not what it was), then make it conspiracy theory-proof instead of inviting more questions.
  • My expectations for Tropic Thunder were too high.  The individual performances of Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Cruise are impressive, but top to bottom, I think I laughed out loud more at Zoolander.
  • Remember, cooler temperature is not evidence that global warming is slowing.  Also, your Christmas weight gain does not mean that you’ve stopped slimming down.
  • The nicotine gum is pretty nasty objectively, but I’m developing an odd affection for it.  That’s pretty much how you said it would go, Lee.  Good call.  Cardiovascular exercise program is imminent.
  • Know who uses the metric system in the world, either primarily or exclusively?  How about effin’ everybody, except for Burma, Liberia, and the United States?  My fourth grade science teacher was very excited to teach it to us.  We were very excited to learn it.  Let’s go!  (Well, maybe when the economy is a little stronger.  Heh.)
  • I’ve almost been able to juggle for about five years.  Maybe I’ll try to click that over to “I can juggle” here in the next week or two.
  • Need a how-to on laundering money?  (“I can’t believe what a bunch of nerds we are.  We’re looking up money laundering in a dictionary.”)  Well, someone asked Cecil Adams.  You’re welcome.

  1. LOL Bo. I could chew a piece right now. (But that’s one Dragon I don’t want to start chasing again!)

  2. And as far as the cardiovascular exercise program goes, if jogging or epicycling are out of the question due to knees or whatever, just walk. 5, 6, even 7 days a week if you can make the time. Keep a record of time and distance for each walk, and over time, when you go out try to increase time walked, distance walked, or both. As your lungs and vascular system begin to heal themselves you’ll notice improvements in your walking performance without much increase in perceived exertion.

  3. I was disappointed in Tropic Thunder too, but there were some funny scenes. Robert Downey Jr. continues to impress me in everything he does and Jack Black had me in stitches toward the end of the flick. Tom Cruise, on the other hand, continues to creep me out. I recommend Pinapple Express. It contains my new favorite movie quote.

  4. Cheryl, you’re saying this without sharing said quote?

  5. War is upon you! Prepare to suck the cock of karma!

  6. So, does that mean you’re not going to tell me the quote?

  7. 😉
