Random Grumblings, Etc.

29 Nov

1. Black Friday has become so ridiculous. I mean, people are sleeping outside to save a few dollars to basically later watch crap on a television they scored at a discount.

2.  It’s astounding how many people wear flip-flops in November. Astounding.  And not just flip-flops…flip-flops with winter coats with fur on the hood.

3.  I could live on an island without water. In a compound home with rolling hills devoid of most people. Which leads me to:

4.  People–random people–are incredibly annoying. I seem to lack the required skills to deal with most of them.

5.  I need therapy. Stat.

6.  I can’t help but wonder where or how all of the people who squat in Starbucks for free WiFi pay their rent. I see them in there surfing for nothing.  And they’re serious about surfing for nothing.  (I only go in there to use the bathroom or get ice water. Me no drinky coffee.)

7.  This guy gives me the creeps.

8.  I always feel stuck when out with friends or whomever and they ALL want to go to McDonalds. I loathe McDonalds. It’s an evil empire. Why, I could write a book on McDonalds but it’s already been done well. So there I am stuck between mysterious meat byproducts on a bun and recycled grease clinging to fries. It really bites.

9.  Public displays of flatulence are the worst.

10.  Is it spring already?

11.  Oy.

Giblets 2 U

If I knew who constructed this card, I’d SO give them kudos…Ha! Ha! Ha! And if you’ve been living under a rock, this is for you.

 

Uh-Oh

17 Nov

If y0u really think about it, I’m sure the government, the police and all the powers that be are really, really concerned about what this will look like in, say, six months. I mean, we’re only two months in and 99% or even 50% of an angry nation surely has them shitting bricks.

 

The Chicken Folks

15 Nov

As I’ve mentioned before on this blog, one of the things I love about it is seeing the actual internet searches that landed people to this site.

The thing that’s really peculiar to me is the perpetual search for chicken.

I mean, people are searching for “chicken leg piece”, “chicken drumstick”, “chicken head”, “chicken face”–you name it.

Then today I had a new thought regarding all those folks in search of chicken stuff.

Perhaps there are a lot of restaurants/delis/etc. out there in need of chicken (food) images to paste on their menus. I dunno.

I personally don’t eat chicken, what with my ongoing therapy neurosis and all, but apparently there is some serious chicken eatin’ going on out there.

11/11/11

11 Nov

This only occurs one day every 100 years.

Reads the same backwards and forward.

The reason the date is so unusual is that 11.11.11 is the only double-figure palindromic date, since there is no 22nd month.

I wonder how many kids will turn 11 today.

I wonder what I’ll be doing at 11:11 today. Tonight.

Move That Money, Stick It to ‘Em

5 Nov

Gotta say, this Occupy Movement is growing wings, talons, capes, roots.

I wonder, wonder, wonder where it’ll end up.

It’s “Ditch Your Big-Time Bank” Day. As in move your money into smaller locally owned banks and credit unions.

A delicious thought. And I swear, if I had money to move, I’d be moving away.
