Random Thoughts for a Wednesday Afternoon

  • Ya get the feeling that Stella, Mary & James, Jr. are dancing a jig right now?
  • I know how I can get elected as Governor in any state with just four words for my campaign: “IQ Tests – Drivers Licenses”… ‘nuff said.
  • Honey Mustard has been out of town for the last 3 days/2 nights, so I’ve been ‘single-dadding’ it… happy to report that all is good. The kids have no broken bones and the house is still in one piece (and clean thank you very much)
  • After 6 weeks, my Yahoo fantasy baseball team is still in first place with a 36-19-5 record. How? Two words: Albert and Pujols.
  • It’s a work of fuc**** fiction people!!! Get over it!!!
  • Can we all agree now that Britney Spears having another baby is a really, really bad idea??
  • The news that “The Da Vinci Code” movie is bad is kind of disappointing… yet not entirely surprising.
  • Goodbye Lew...
  • ‘The West Wing’ gets cancelled, but 7th Heaven gets a reprieve?? Is this some sort of a cruel and sick joke???
  • Goodbye Stanley...
  • My next must read book: “Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee” by Charles J. Shields
  • Today’s the birthday of an actor who spoke one of my favorite lines ever from a movie, so it’s a great opportunity to post the quote on my blog: “Heineken!? F--k that shit! Pabst Blue Ribbon!” Who knows the movie and the actor?
  • Hmmmmm… I wonder if anyone reading this blog can relate to THIS LIST??
  • There will be arguing in my household this fall on Thursday nights with Honey Mustard’s favorite show “Grey’s Anatomy” being moved opposite (what I am sure, based on history with the creator/writer, will be my new favorite show) Aaron Sorkin’s “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.” Son of a bit--
  • Hey… if you haven’t gone over to Draft Day Suit… you need to… now… this minute… then come right back here and finish reading this post… please.
  • I had other things to put in this week’s Random Thoughts… but I’ve since forgotten them… I really need to start writing these down.
  • Here are some of the recent search phrases that have brought people to my little corner of the blogosphere: “twins mono ultrasound”, “edmund fitzgerald bell display”, “Sinking location of the Edmund Fitzgerald”, “ozzie smith wife and children?”, “whitey herzog's wife”, “bodies at the bottom of lake superior”, “the history of a cigar to celebrate fatherhood”, “yoda kemp”, “giorno felice delle madri”, “La Puente cheese enchilada recipe”
  • Today’s gratuitous (and superfluous) attempt for the ‘craziest word or phrase used in a blatant attempt to trick people into visiting my site when they type it into Google’is: “onomatopoetic hyperbole”
  • Today’s Gratuitous Blog Plug is: Jen (and Andrew). She linked my blog on her site and said, about me; “the dude is pretty damn cool”… how can I not plug her blog (wow, that sounds kinda dirty doesn’t it?)
  • Today’s Mental iPod Song of the day, in honor of the separation of Paul & Heather McCartney is Your Loving Flame by Paul McCartney, from his album; “Driving Rain”
How can I hope to reach your love
Help me to discover
What it is you’re thinking of

’cos when we kiss, nothing feels the same
I could spend eternity
Inside your loving flame

What am I to do
If I don’t have you
I’ll be feeling blue
Just sitting here without you
You could be the one
To chase my blues away, away

So tell me how, how to reach your love
Help me to discover
What it is you’re thinking of

’cos when we kiss, nothing feels the same
I could spend eternity
Inside your loving flame

What am I to do
If I don’t have you
I’ll be feeling blue
Just sitting here without you
You could be the one
To chase my blues away, away

’cos when we kiss, nothing feels the same
I could spend eternity
Inside your loving flame

So tell me how, how to reach your love
Help me to discover
What it is you’re thinking of

How can I hope to reach your love
Here forever in your loving flame

That was quick... and correct.

After I saw Capote, I was hoping they would do a movie about Harper Lee. Maybe they will based on the book you mentioned.
Britany Spears? Let's not go there.

Interesting choice for the mental iPod. Your Loving Flame has always sounded unbelievably SAD to me - a subtext that seems to say "Being with you is better than being suicidally depressed." Poor Paul.

(Just surfed on to your blog looking for commentary on the break-up... but I love your politics!)

MetroDad said...

Just wanted to let you know that I'm here, Kemp. However, I'm refraining from leaving a real comment on your blog until the Mets/Cardinals series is over.

Just wanted to let you know. GO METS!

Oooh. I just saw you are reading "The Poisonwood Bible" it's so hard to put down.

New Sorkin? I'm on it.

I could have written that list.

Hope you have Tivo and 2 TVs for your Thursday night dilemma. I'm counting on Studio 60 to fill a big blank spot in my TV favs list, left by the sad, sad cancellation of The West Wing.

Kemp said...

Like you and I already talked about MD, today's game is NOT a pitchers duel like last night's game was.

I have not actually started reading it yet Sarah, it's on my nightstand waiting to be started...

I was going to post a link to youtube which had a 6 minute preview of Studio 60, but it's been removed...

BTW, the show looks REALLY good.
