Random Thoughts for a Wednesday Afternoon

It’s a ritual on my other blog, so, rather than try to write up a long, drawn-out post I thought I would alter the title slightly and do it here on my personal blog.

Random Thoughts for a Wednesday Afternoon.

  • Like Matthew, I received some good blogging info today. has offered me the chance to join them as a regular contributor. My first post on the site should appear February 23rd. Yay for me.
  • I watched War of the Worlds last night. I came away from the movie with one question… How the HELL does Dakota Fanning keep getting work?
  • Does anyone really care if Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes break up?
  • I am officially sick of the Olympics. Not so much the events, but the damn ‘human-interest’ angles. There is only so much ‘I want to win for [insert family member here]’ that one person can take.
  • Is there really a market for Season One (or any season for that matter) of ‘Growing Pains’ on DVD? And if there is, should these people be allowed to procreate?
  • Repeat the above thought but substitute “Gimme a Break’ for ‘Growing Pains’
  • Will Dick “Dead Eye” Cheney now have trouble finding hunting partners?
  • To Kill a Mockingbird should be required reading (and viewing) for every high school student in the country.
  • To be honest, the winner of Best in Show is… kind of ugly.
  • Is it just me or does a Bull Terrier’s head look like an egg?
  • It’s obvious to me, but apparently not to others, that we'd all be a lot happier if we just came to grips with the fact that the Internet will, one day, offend us all. This columnist agrees.
  • There’s a new game for baby boomers that will predict whether they will die within the next five years with 81% accuracy. That should make for some interesting early-bird dinner conversations shouldn’t it?
  • The other blog I post on got over 500 visits on Monday. Our previous high was 133. All I can say to that is 'Holy Flurking Schnit.'
  • How badly would the question; ‘In the future, do you plan to go on any hunting excursions with VP Dick Cheney?’ skew the results?
  • And to think, when I woke up this morning I had no idea that I would see the words 'flamingo cup' and 'toilet' appear in the same sentence.

That's all I got...

Shout Out

I would be remiss if I did not do a quick shout-out to the creator of one of my all-time favorite shows...

Happy 52nd Birthday Matt Groening, this Duff's for you.
