Random Thoughts for a Tuesday Afternoon

  • Always exciting when you catch a fish that could eat you.
  • Okay, it’s official; we as a nation have become a bunch of lazy-asses. How about a machine that will dunk your cookie into your milk for you. No lie, someone (in Florida of course) invented one.
  • Yesterday’s best headline on Fark: Nudists looking for new members, apparently tired of looking at the same old members. [rimshot!]
  • How many people who read this blog did I just antagonize by insulting Florida?
  • Rush Limbaugh was detained at an airport for having Viagra without a valid prescription. Limbaugh taking Viagra… talk about an image I don’t need to have…
  • Though he has been screwing people over for years.
  • Steven Seagal is making good headlines with his music career. Who’d a thunk it?
  • Things that make my skin crawl. Headline from an op-ed piece in the Chicago Tribune: Taking a bath with Ann Coulter. Ewwwwwwwwwww……
  • How would you do? Click HERE and see how you do on a sample of the civics test that immigrants have to pass in order to become a U.S. citizen.
  • I scored a 19 out of 20. I missed the name of the form to become a U.S. citizen. Rats...
  • As a person who loves crossword puzzles, THIS is an excellent article and I will have to see this movie.
  • Good (but not great) article about traveling from St. Louis (where I was born) to Chicago (where I live now) and things to do. Give it a read HERE.
  • Words every husband hopes to hear from their wife; “Honey, I’ve enrolled in a pole-dancing/cardio strip-class at the gym.”
  • Superfluous blog-plug of the week: Sarah’s moved, go and check out her new site HERE… it’s now 100% Blogger-free.

Doggone it...

In it’s heyday, Frasier was one of the best shows on television; funny as hell, intelligent, chocked-full of physical comedy and never above making fun of itself. It was also one of my favorite shows until it jumped the shark a few years ago, only to right itself in the show's last 2 seasons.

Now comes this news: Moose, the lovable Jack Russell terrier who played Eddie on the show… has died.

He was 16 ½ (115 years old in dog years) and died of old age.

Goodbye little doggie…
