Random Thoughts for a Thursday Afternoon

Psst… buddy. Hey… do you know what today is?

It’s Thursday, which can only mean one thing… Random Thoughts for a Thursday Afternoon… spread the word.

Randomness… pure, unadulterated, unsullied and chaste randomness…

  • Today’s post is brought to you by the number ‘42’. Extra credit points to anyone who knows the significance of the number 42. Anyone… anyone… Bueller? Bueller?
  • Guys (and I suppose gals) if you’re getting sick of filling out NCAA Tournament brackets… try the NCTnA brackets. (Note: semi-safe for work)
  • Last week’s number and letter sponsor was 28 IF. No one responded as to its significance… and frankly I’m a little bummed about that.
  • Uh… Mr. Douglas… this is the kettle… you’re black.
  • I don’t care how old you are… if you want to be a singer, how the HELL can you not know who Stevie Wonder is????
  • I have to admit… I thought it was a blatant marketing/money-making scheme (which it is), but the World Baseball Classic has given us some great baseball… too bad the U.S. team sucks.
  • Jeff King won his fourth Iditarod. I don’t know why I’m mentioning this… but I am.
  • We had to re-arrange our Disney World trip to the first week of June. It will be 6 days/5 nights of all-Disney, all the time… insert own thought here
  • Aw crap, this doesn’t bode well…seems a Supercomputer has built a virus… it starts…
  • What's scarier? A movie version of the TV show ‘Dallas’, Ice Cube in a movie version of ‘Welcome Back Kotter’, or Ashton Kutcher & Kevin Costner doing a movie together?
  • Matthew over at Childs Play x2 invited me to join his Blogging Daddies NCAA tournament bracket challenge. I said yes… I filled out my brackets… and now I await the first round of me getting my ass kicked and my head handed to me on a platter. SIU-C over West Virginia?? Bradley over Kansas?? George Mason over Michigan State?? Gonzaga & Villanova in the Championship Game?? Who am I kidding??
  • Speaking of which, ‘Bring me the head of Alfredo Garcia…’
  • And ‘a glass of hot fat…’
  • Here are some of the recent search phrases that have brought people to my little corner of the blogosphere: “Twin movie quotes”, “especially at night i worry over situations”, “eeffoc”, “blogs - on humanity and politics”, “ono-mono twin images”, “scrubs song list diving in to deep”, “Quotes on the banning Mardi Gras”, “francis slay cardinals arizona”, “Amani Toomer's siblings”, “michael shannon kemp”, “Whitey Herzog's Wife's Name”, and “effects after drinking whisky”
  • In honor of those, here is today’s gratuitous (and superfluous) attempt for the ‘craziest phrase used in a blatant attempt to lure people to my site when they type it into Google’ is: ‘Banana Hammock.’ Tell your friends…
  • Have I mentioned that I suck at NCAA Tournament selection-brackets?
  • Gratuitous Quote of the Day: “I often quote myself. I find it adds spice to the conversation.” – George Bernard Shaw
  • Gratuitous (you have to be asking yourself how many times I could use the word ‘gratuitous’ in one post…) Blog Plug of the Day: Scott’s Rant Spot
  • Did I mention that I suck at NCAA Tournament selection-brackets?

I believe 42 is the meaning of life.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah said...

Also Oklahoma! Not OK. Screwing up my brackets this early.

Kemp said...

Sarah is 100% correct... 42 is the meaning of life.

And Oklahoma has screwed me early as well... d'oh!

Mr Big Dubya said...

Sorry - should have left a coment on the 28 IF - how about...hmmm...Coo-coo-ca-choo? No? Um...Turn it on dead man? No? Well, let me ask the one and only Billy Shears and I'll get back to you, 'kay?

Kemp said...

Excellent. Sarah wins this week's quiz, Dubya wins the previous week's.

For those who didn't know: "28 I F" is the only license plate visible on the Beatles Abbey Road album cover and was considered to be one of the "Paul is Dead" signs

What do you win? Uh.... I don't know... give me a minute

Thanks for the plug. I have been updating my site more and appreciate the shout out.

42, besides being my age, is the meaning of life.

So does that mean that I hold the key to the meaning of life? If so, can someone please tell me what it is that I am looking for 'cause I haven't found it yet.
