Random Thoughts for a Wednesday Afternoon

  • Do alligator attacks signal some sort of a reptile dysfunction?
  • Who knew that the Dutch had F-16’s???
  • Hell… who knew that they had an Air Force…
  • Sadly… I don’t think I am going to be able to be in the much-anticipated Fantasy Football league with many of my blogmigos… with my unfortunate, up-in-the-air job situation (crap shoot from one day to the next if I still have a job at the end of that day), I can’t really afford to do it now… I am very bummed and more than a little depressed (about everything really) that I can’t… sorry guys
  • THIS is more than a little unsettling… and odd… a graphic adaptation (read: comic book) of the 9/11 attacks??
  • This blog turns one year old tomorrow… who-da thunk it?
  • Who knew that cows have regional accents? Furthermore… who the hell really cares if cows have regional accents?
  • A new study shows that Milwaukee, Wisconsin is the “hardest-drinking city in America”. Insert your own, 'Well what else is there to do in Wisconsin?' joke here...
  • Available: One relief pitcher. Has blown 9 saves this season and consistently gives fans of his baseball team heart attacks whenever he pitches. If interested, see St. Louis Cardinals General Manager Walt Jocketty.
  • This is definitely one of the strangest headlines I’ve seen in awhile; Osama bin Laden might be sweet on Whitney Houston…. Eeeeeewwwww…
  • Am I the only one laughing their ass off at Tom Cruise being dumped by Paramount?
  • After reading THIS STORY from the St. Louis Post Dispatch, methinks the FBI is a tad on edge…
  • This week’s gratuitous blog-plug of the week comes from another of my Daily Kos acquaintances: Current Dirt
  • Here’s a list of searches (and snarky comments) that have brought people to my little corner of the blogosphere… sadly, none arrived via my last gratuitous phrase of ‘salma hayek naked’. “wilco mermaid avenue download”, “how did you feed your twins at the same time”, “Fema/Putz” (I assume they were looking for info on Michael Brown), “arturo sandoval download”, “Diamonds and Buttermilk”, “blog father of twins”, “ronald reagan challenger speech critical analysis”, “scout aims rifle in to kill a mockingbird”, “aston kutcher twin” (Jesus, isn’t that a scary freakin’ thought?), “you never know who you might meet, a movie star or maybe even an indian chief” (at the car wash, whoa whoa)
  • This week’s gratuitous phrase used in a pathetic attempt to draw people to my site is: “carnivorous wasps”
  • Today’s Mental iPod Song of the Day is… what the hell? Oh my… son of a bitc— I want these motherfuc**** snakes out of my motherfuc**** iPod... Sorry, today’s song is “The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight” by REM

This here is the place where I will be staying.
There isn't a number. You can call the pay phone.
Let it ring a long, long, long, long time.
If I don't pick up, hang up, call back, let it ring some more.
If I don't pick up, pick up...
The sidewinder sleeps, sleeps, sleeps in a coil

Call me when you try to wake her up.
Call me when you try to wake her.

There are scratches all around the coin slot
Like a heartbeat, baby trying to wake up,
But this machine can only swallow money.
You can't lay a patch by computer design.
It's just a lot of stupid, stupid signs.

Tell her,
Tell her she can kiss my ass,
And laugh and say that you were only kidding.
That way she'll know that it's really, really, really, really me.

Call me when you try to wake her up.
Call me when you try to wake her.
Baby, instant soup doesn't really grab me.
Today I need something more sub-sub-sub-substantial.
A can of beans or black-eyed peas Some Nescafe and ice,
A candy bar, a falling star,
Or a reading from Doctor Seuss;

Call me when you try to wake her up.
Call me when you try to wake her.

The cat in the hat came back,
Wrecked a lot of havoc on the way,
Always had a smile and a reason to pretend.
But their world has flat backgrounds
And little need to sleep but to dream.
The sidewinder sleeps on his back.

Call me when you try to wake her up.
Call me when you try to wake her.
I can always sleep standing up

We've got to moogie, moogie, move on this one

wouldn't everything be more interesting if there were still predatory birds big enough to hunt us?

Happy birthday blog!

(This is how blogcentric I have become, I thought you meant Dutch from Sweet Juniper had F-16s.)

Lumpyheadsmom said...

Do you think the Geico gecko could be the celebrity spokesperson/Bob Dole equivalent for reptile dysfunction?

Becky said...

Happy blogiversary!

No, you're not the only one laughing your ass off.

And, me too ... what Sarah said about Dutch. I thought, what? How did HE get F-16s?

Kemp said...

Uh.. sure Jennifer... sure, whatever you say...

Thanks Sarah & Becky; sorry I confused the two of you (I'll refrain from saying a joke of how easy that would be...)

And yes, I think the Geico gecko would be the best celebrity spokesperson... pen in hand optional...

Congrats for being around a year.
