Thursday Random Thoughts 1/24

Stuff I have been thinking about:

- I found out on Sunday that one of our friends from church as found our blog and reads it so she told my wife. (Hi Doris !!) That's great I love it...however the funny part was when she asked my wife, now your husband is Doc right? For some reason that question struck me as funny and I just died laughing.

-A friend of mine is flying from Georgia to Los Angeles this week to see a concert or should I say concerts. Nothing really out of the ordinary about that you say? Check this out. He is flying out to LA to see Garth Brooks in concert at the Staples center FIVE TIMES... Yes apparently Garth is doing benefit shows for the victims of the wildfires and my buddy is going to all 5 shows in one weekend. That is dedication ladies and gentleman.

-I usually eat a few gummy bears after lunch each day for desert. My two favorite flavors are red and clear.

-I heard on the radio the other day that there is apparently a nasty rivalry in the Northeast between Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts coffee. Like there is serious bad blood between the fans of each coffee. Maybe I should make a poll about it... I am kidding however I wonder if the Dunkin donut fans realize that their coffee is actually manufactured by S&D coffee right here in Concord NC?

-Am I the only one who actually tried to look up "Bagwine, Ohio" on a map ?

-When Vince suggested that we put up Travelin' Band as the theme music for our blog (an old reference to a conversation the two of had probably 10 years ago) I loved the idea. While searching youtube for the right video I actually paused for a minute and thought about trying to convince him that Tarzan boy by Baltimora would be a better choice. But I thought better of it.

-Pop Tarts taste sooooo good when you toast them until they are almost burnt.

-First John McCain's campaign almost went bankrupt this past summer. Then Rudy Guliani's staffers and advisers started to work for free when funds started running short. Now I read this week that Mike Huckabee's campaign advisers are doing the same thing and not accepting paychecks. Hmmmm I thought that the Republicans were the rich peoples party? Sounds like they can hardly afford to run. Take that a step further and it seems like they aren't even able to manage their own campaign finances very well, why should we trust them to manage our tax money?

-Why do crooks do really dumb stuff like trying to steal an alligator named Mr. Cranky Pants ?

-I went back and forth several times this week on which TV to buy but I think I have settled on the Samsung 42" Plasma HD instead of the LG.

-I had a Hardee's loaded omelet biscuit the other day and it was awesome. Hardee's (Carl's Jr. out west) stuff is underrated.

-Media reports say that Eminem has gained a lot of weight by sitting around the house and playing video games and drinking all day. His mother even says that he has really ballooned up. My thought is that Slim Fast needs to contact him about doing a weight loss campaign. That way he can start to call himself Slim-Fast Shady. I can hear it now, "Two Slim-Fast girls go round the outside, round the outside!"

The Mountain Cat said...

Who is this Vince you speak of?

Leighann said...

Two Slim Fast Girls....

thanks a lot, now I'll have that in my head ALL day!

Doc said...

LOL - I thought you all might like Slim-Fast Shady - It was the first thing that came to mind when they reported that he porked out!

Karen said...

lol...Slim-Fast Shady is awesome. And Dunkin Donuts coffee kicks Starbucks butt. I am having some right now.

leapofaith said...

You gotta get the strawberry milkshake flavored pop tarts and FREEZE 'em...YUM-MY!!!

Slim-Fast Shady...LMAO!!!!!!!

The Mountain Cat said...

Personally I would like to see Starbuck and Dunkin' Donuts combine forces:

"Hi can I get an Venti Iced Soy Chai Ginseng Strawberry Oatbran Frapachinno Froth Boulebaisse Dolphin Safe Latte and a cruller please?"

leapofaith said...

ROTL, Vin!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jay said...

"Am I the only one who actually tried to look up "Bagwine, Ohio" on a map?"

No, you're not.


Garth Brooks concerts? That guy has retired and come back more times than Micheal Jordan.

Doc said...

Karen - You are drinking sweet NC goodness!!

Leap O' - I never saw the milkshake flavored.... Hmmmm

VIN - ROFLMAO !!!!! (and a cruller) HA!

Doc said...

Jay - Thank you for letting me know that I am not alone....

leapofaith said...

Doc - they are tough to find...I've only been able to get them at WalMart! But, they're worth the hunt...!!

Doc said...

Hey Leap O' - you need to start blogging... Create a blog ....

Oh and the same goes for Christine!

leapofaith said...

Why do you say that? I wouldn't know where to begin....

Doc said...

No one knows where to begin... thats part of the fun.

Dana said...

These were ALL good, but Slim-Fast Shady was ROTFLMAO worthy (and I don't even like acronyms)!



Dunkin' Donuts vs. Starbucks - coffee to coffee (no froo-froo poo-poo drinks) Starbucks wins HANDS DOWN!

Penelope Anne said...

Tarzan Boy wins my vote for theme song.....awesome song.
I won't even watch the Garth concert once...and I used to be a fan, he needs to learn to stay retired.
I love gummy bears, orange and clear are my favs.....I'll give people the green and yellow.
I still say you should join the Thursday Thirteen with your random thirteen.

Jahooni said...

Jay, I am sooooo with you on the Garth Brook thing. He needs to stay retired!!!

Doc,
These were the best thoughts. But reading them made me think that you don't have such a healthy diet. Bisquits, gummy worms?? Big screen TV - which I can see you sitting in front of and ballooning up!

Oh my gosh. I got a sharp pain in my side from laughing so hard at the Slim-Fast Shady song! That is CLASSIC CLASSIC and funnier than shit. oops, can we curse on here? sorry. shit. oops. sorry again.

Doc said...

Dana - Are you firing off the first shot in the Starbucks Dunkin donut war? Maybe I should make it next weks poll... We do go for the controversial hot topics...

Penelope Anne - The reason I don't do the 13 is that I cannot "random" on topic. They are jsut that very random. I write them down all week long and save them up until Thursdays

Jahooni -First of all I am NOT going to balloon up like Eminem. As a matter of fact I need to shed a few pounds already... as far as the cursing - Don't make me wash out your mouth....

leapofaith said...

I agree, Doc...Starbucks vs Dunkin' Donuts would be a good one - I'm already all fired up! = )

ZenDenizen said...

This is the 3rd blog post I read today about Starbucks vs DD! I don't care for either...

The Eminem thing was the best laugh I had all day!

Doc said...

Leap O'- Ok that settles it - Next weeks poll is Starbucks -vs- Dunkin Donuts... the Java fight to the death.

Zen - thanks for stopping by and glad you got a laugh!

leapofaith said...

K...I'm ready! ; )

...and I'm still laughin' about Slim-Fast Shady!!!!!!!!!! That's classic...definitely goes down in the books!

Doc said...

Hey Leap O' (and any other coffee drinkers) are there any other coffee stores I need to put into the poll? I don't want to anger any caffene nerds by leaving their store off the list.

leapofaith said...

Doc, I don't think so...if you're just gonna count actual coffee shops. Although, I would somehow specify whether the poll is for just regular coffee or everything - including the shi shi fee fee drinks.

Also, the question to the REAL coffee drinkers is store-bought ground coffee, gourmet ground or buy your own beans and grind 'em yourself???

Doc said...

Too much info for a simple poll... It's gonna have to be. Which coffee chain do you like betta? Starbucks or Dunkin' Dounuts

Jahooni said...

I drink green tea. no coffee so I am out of this loop.

Dana said...

Not that I have a coffee addiction or anything, but you might want to add Caribou Coffee to that poll!

Jahooni said...

Shoot. Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit.

Sorry I have turrets!

The Mountain Cat said...

Wait Doc!! You don't even drink coffee!!!

Doc said...

True - I don't drink coffee - thats why I am unbiased... other than Dunkin Donuts coffee is made right here in concord... Wonder who I am gonna support?

Doc said...

Oh Dana.. I will include Caribou - but I think they are gonna get skunked.

and Jahooni - you have a dirty mouth....

Matt-Man said...

Doc my good man, while I am in Ohio...Bagwine, Ohio is a state of mind. And man, I love living here dude. Cheers!!

Doc said...

Ahh Matt-Man I see so it's kind of like Margaritaville

The Mama Bear said...

Doc ~ you haven't read too many Thursday Thirteens, if you do not realize how seriously random most are...only anal gals like me have topics....and truth be I use it as a bit of a writing outlet, but you didn't hear that from me....but I won't push, prod, or poke anymore...
I am with Dana Caribou Coffee needs to be in the poll, I actually get most of mine from a little hut called Mountain Mudd if I am not at home, they make it exactly like I love it just keep Jo to Go off the poll!!!!!

Now, we know Matt lives in his own little world, who would have ever guessed?????
shoot I can't help but laugh, couldn't keep a straight face at all for that.
