Grits and Coffee

I somehow thought it would be a good idea to accept the invitation from a few co-workers to meet at the new Cracker Barrell at 6:30 this morning for breakfast.

Those better be some good grits, I tell you what.

("What is a grit?" Name that movie...anyone? Anyone?)

I couldn't help myself...

A Longhorn and an Aggie applied for the same job. They were neck and neck, with all the same qualifications. The hiring manager decided the only way to decide was to randomly point to a word in the dictionary, and whoever came up with the best scenario using the chosen word would get the job.

The manager opened the dictionary and pointed to the word "Timbuktu."

The Longhorn stood up, cleared his throat, and began. "I looked across the burning sands, and spied a camel caravan. Under azure skies of blue, destination: Timbuktu."

The manager was quiet for a moment and slowly wiped a tear from his eye, clearly moved.

The Aggie stood up and started his poem. "Tim and I did fishing went. We spied three maiden in a tent. They were three and we were two, so I bucked one and Timbuktu."

The Aggie won.

What the...

I just saw a commercial for a prescription medication for Restless Leg Syndrome. One of the side effects?

Call your doctor if you experience a strong urge to gamble.

No joke.

He's Messed Up, Man

Taking a nap while Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove, about nuclear war between the U.S. and Russia = really really REALLY messed up dreams.

'Sup, yo?

My mom e-mailed me today, asking if I was dead, since I hadn't blogged in such a long time.

I saw a tag-on sponsor commercial while watching a show the other day, for Poise undies. It had an older woman frolicking on the seashore, walking in the waves.

Here's the problem.

Now, I have no problem with Poise, and am happy that they are there for those who need them. But you see, a dude did the voice-over.

And said "panties."

And then ended the commercial with the Poise slogan...

(in a deep, manly voice)

"Yes, I can!"

My rather long-haired kitty got her little tooshie shaved tonight, as she can be a little messy with her "personal matters."

I'm hoping she'll forgive me in, like, 5 months or so.

The current winner of the national hot dog eating contest ate fifty-nine-and-a-half hot dogs in twelve minutes.

I, well, I just, um, yeah.

In my one wink of sleep during the night, I had a dream it was supposed to be a high of 47 degrees today...sigh.

A really cool band? My Morning Jacket. You should check them out. A bit Coldplay, U2, Sigur Ros, Radiohead...I love it!

I've been wondering this for do you pronounce T.I.G.I.? Is it tee-gee? Or mabye tee-gee ("g" as in give?) Or could it be ti-gee? Or do you just say the actual letters? Anyone? Anyone? (Arnold...Arnold...)
