Random thoughts from a whack mind

I ponder, therefore I am.

  • Why do Stars, Cinemax, Showtime, etc. feel the need to break into the movie right when the credits start to roll with loud promos and commercials? They shrink the credits to the corner of the screen and cut the music. Yeah, credits and closing music are part of the movie, assholes... let's try doing this differently.
  • Why are there no dogs named Bill? I've met a lot of canines, none named William or any derivative. This must change. Also Wally... there are no dogs named Wally.
  • Why is it that even though we love our jobs, we'd still prefer not to be doing them? A friend and I were discussing the phenomenon recently - both of us claiming we loved our jobs, yet at the same time, wishing we had tomorrow off. What gives?
  • Could Family Guy possibly get any funnier? Brian the dog makes me giggle until the bed shakes. (I TiVo FG and watch as I fall asleep) Brian is another under-used dog name.
  • How is it that, "when this old world starts getting me down and people are just too much for me to face," being "up on the roof" could make everything better? What is this concept based on, altitude? Is there something calming about the smell of tar and shingles? Bird shit projects serenity, maybe?
  • Don't click this link. (shit, man, I warned you... what do you expect?)
  • During this, the week of groundhog day, I am going out on a limb and predicting that we will have another 6 weeks of 42-day periods.
  • What the HELL were Lincoln Chase and Shirley Elliston smoking when they wrote The Name Game? "Dave-Dave-bo-bave, banana fana fo fave?" What the %^*#??
  • This is what a Honda feels like. (great commercial, link courtesy of Steve)

Peace, out.

Man, I can't believe you still have my picture...I asked you to throw it away.

you know, the whole job thing is kind of a catch-22, because i guarantee that if we DIDN'T have jobs to go to, we'd be totally bored and would always be finding other things to fill our time and eventually we wouldn't want to have to do those things, too.

You know, you asked exactly the same questions that I am always How did you do that?

Fine Honda ad.

No dogs named Clarence, either.

CP said...

Heh. I love my job, but let me win the lottery and I will be like..."job? what job?"

I will never be one of those people who says, "I won't let money change me! I'll still have to work!"

No, money will change me...and I will never work again. I promise.

If I ever start dating again, it would be just my luck to pick a girl that has

"6 weeks of 42 day periods"

Family Guy rules!

Lee Ann said...

You go on the roof? How cool!
What was the link that you said not to go to?
I loved how a Honda feels....way cool.

Kylee said...

mmmm maybe if we called it a vacation instead of a JOB we'd like it more....just a thought

Jasmine said...

Yes, Brian is a strange name for a dog. I knew a Sam dog, but never Willy, Wally, Billy, or Fred!

that "girl" was HOT!

Good point on "Up on a Roof". Let me see: I'm really down, people are being dicks, life sucks -- hey, let's go to a really high place, where I might, oh, I don't know, maybe ... JUMP OFF AND END IT ALL.

What's that all about?

And I did not follow that link. Really. I did not. Just like you said. Honest.
