Take Me Back Tuesday 2/27/07

What songs make you think of spring break, or make you want to take a spring break.

Geez, I dunno. How about:

"Steal My Sunshine" by Len

Anything from 1984 by Van Halen. Any of those pop/rock bands from the '80s. That is what reminds me of Spring Break.

"Pour Some Sugar on Me" something like that.

Did you ever take a break/vacation just to see a concert? Did you ever want to?

Nope, and not really

How far would you travel to see a band?

Maybe a couple of hours.

What would be your dream spring break concert?

If Brad Nowell was still alive: Sublime.

Otherwise the Beastie Boys

Ya, know I have been living in my new location for about 9 months now, and I have never sorted my socks completely once? After I was them I pile them on the floor, and just match them as I need them. Whenever is run out of matches I wash all of them again. Now when the pile gets low I may match up the last few pair, and put them in the drawer, but never that fist big group.

I don't feel the one bit bad about it either.

Bum Phillips

I was listening to the radio this morning, and they were interviewing former NFL coach, Bum Phillips. Before then I would have bet everything I have that he was dead. Go figure. He is great to listen to, very funny.

Thursday Threesome 2/8/07

Onesome: Pitch-- What is your singing range? ...and do you sing at all? Laurie, you're leading off here !

I have no idea what my range is, I've never tested it or whatever it is you for that. If I am drunk enough I will sing in public. I will also sing to, you know.

Twosome: Yaw--'ll ken that one? Do you have any 'dialect words' that you use as a matter of course? "Ken", meaning "to understand" (Scottish and other derivations) in this case...

Just ya'll.

Threesome: and Roll-- on down the road? Hey, if the roads were as icy as they've been in the Midwest and East would driving to work even be a consideration for you?

Not really. I just don't trust the other drivers around here. It iced up here last week just a bit, and there are just some people who don't care. The speed limit is 40, and by God, they are gonna drive 40. I can get my job done from home if I need to.

While listening to the radio the other day, one commercial starts out with the exclamation: "COWABUNGA!" The rest of the ad follows. Anyway, I told a friend of mine that being part American Indian, this offended me. Which brought on this witty exchange:

"'Cowabunga,' is an Indian word?"

"I dunno, it sounds like one though."

"You're Native American?"


The rest of the talk was determining that all we knew about the word was that surfers said it, as did Bart Simpson. Not a real endorsement to fuel my fake indignation of the white man stealing my heritage which I know almost nothing about. Clearly some etymological research was needed. My initial research revealed nothing. An unknown origin.

Then I had a breakthrough. The word was from the "Howdy Doody Show" It was spoken by Chief Thunderthud as a greeting and such. Well, clearly I was in the right, and I could resume my indignation. I mean doesn't this look like someone who is an authentic Native American:

That was the only pic I could find. But he looks pretty real to me. And if you can't trust a children's show from the 1950s to give you an accurate, historical Indian expression then this world is in real trouble.

2 TV Quickhits

30 Rock - I saw one of the first episodes, and I thought it sucked. A couple of friends of mine told me to give it another try. I did. It was awful. I can't remember another sitcom that didn't make me laugh at least once. Or hell even crack a smile. I am talking this show is Joey bad.

The Sarah Silverman Program - Also, not funny. I find Sarah Silverman kind of hot, but I can only take her in about 5 minutes doses. She loses something to me for any time period longer than that.

A 30 Rock footnote, who thinks Tina Fey is funny? She is probably one of the least funny people. Ever. I don't blame her for SNL not being funny, it wasn't funny before she became the head writer, but her and Jimmy Fallon's "Weekend Update" was so bad it drove me from even watching that clip of the show.

Thursday Threesome

Onesome: Slicing-- your way through the fairways of life? Terrible metaphor, -eh? Do you have metaphor or simile that just drives you bonkers when you hear it?

Eh, not really. Maybe there is, and nothing comes to mind...

Twosome: and-- on and on and on. What's the duration of your 'long' phone calls? You know, the ones where you just chat and chat and chat? Guys, you may be able to pull an exemption on this one...

Probably half and hour or so, but it would have to be someone I haven't talked to a quite a while.

Threesome: dicing-- up anything for the game this weekend? ...or are you taking advantage of the sales? ...or is it a case of "what game?"

I am going to my boss' house for a party. It was going to be a small affair with some beer, and people providing there own meal (some snacks provided though). My boss' wife decided to invite her friends, and now she has to "put on airs". It has now turned into a full blown catered affair, with kegs and a margarita machine. What was one 10-12 people or so has blown up to over 30.
