  • “No, we’re not homosexual, but we are willing to learn.” Thanks for the substantial laughs and all you did to shape my beloved 1980s, Harold Ramis. RIP.
  • You know those crazy things you read sometimes about life expectancy in the Middle Ages, like it was 36 or something? That doesn’t mean a lot of people dropped dead in their mid- to late 30s. That’s much higher infant mortality skewing that number, more than anything else. Even the most conservative calculations agree that it was reasonable and expected for people to live into their 40s and 50s.
  • I’m thinking about writing blog posts about some things that are happening right now that I wouldn’t be able to publish for a long time—maybe several years. I’ve had stuff happen that I’d say “ooh, don’t blog about that,” but for which I never really had the drive to anyway. This time I think it’s good stuff. I’d just have to sit on it until maybe 2018 or so. It’s an odd place to be.
  • Jake E. Lee is back! Red Dragon Cartel came out last month. Looking for some new stuff to listen to, I bought it earlier this week. I’ve only just skimmed it so far, but I’m liking what I’m hearing.
  • I have decided. (I’m gonna live like a believer, turn my back on the deceiver…) Heh! I have decided for sure that for Lent, I shall be a lacto-ovo vegetarian.
  • I remember thinking it was the greatest thing in the world for our family to pile into the MG and go to Baskin-Robbins in north central Anniston. It hasn’t been a Baskin-Robbins in quite some time. I look every time I drive through.
  • Saintseester and I have been jamming a bit and have decided we’re getting (most of) the band back together. Stay tuned.

  1. Indeed, it took a special occasion in the Kitchens household to hit that Baskin-Robbins. One strange thing I remember about that BR is that they had a water fountain in the store. I don’t think I’ve ever been to another ice cream place that had one and I always look for one. I guess it is the sugar load in the ice cream that gets me thirsty, but I typically look for a water fountain at these places and I just haven’t seen one since that one. I realize that is a weird observation, but it is the first thing I thought about when you wrote about it!

    • I do remember the water fountain! It was in the back right, next to the freezer case with those clown cones that it didn’t seem to me anyone ever bought. 🙂
