Thursday Random Thoughts 3/6

Stuff I have been thinking about:

-If any of you all ever see me wearing "Crocs" you have my permission to slap me upside the head.

-Does anyone want to meet Tie-Bo master Billy Blanks? If you do then FYI he will be here in Charlotte this weekend at some Health and Wellness seminar.

-Interesting Google search note of the week: Someone from Rancho Rio New Mexico found our blog this week by searching "honey bunches of bark"

-I heard "Playing with the Queen of Hearts" by Juice Newton on the radio the other day. It has been a long time since I heard that song which I find odd because I often listen to a station that plays songs in constant shuffle mode.

-Do they still make Swatch watches?

-An actual name in my customer follow up list on Tuesday that I found funny: X-X-X-X-X-X-X . just as a little bonus X-X-X-X lives in someplace called X-X-X-X-X-X-X-X.

- I was thinking that Andrew Ridgley and John Oates should start their own group and call it "Wham-O"

-I cooked the spaghetti pie that Bina posted the recipe for this past weekend and it was fantastic! My wife even called me gourmet (without joking). Thanks Bina!

-It's my understanding that that "The Sharper Image" went bankrupt. I will miss that place because they had all the cool gadgets and I used to always look at the catalog when I was growing up. The thing is that the stores are apparently still open but refuse to honor gift cards that were purchased previously. (25 million dollars worth of cards actually) so if you have a Sharper Image gift card apparently you are out of luck.

-Now that it's March I am really looking forward to our Florida vacation the 23rd - 29th. We are going to see some friends in Jacksonville and Panama City Beach. I can't wait! BTW - On a related note... Does anyone want to have a very cute and very sweet black lab who is afraid of being boarded at the vet, stay with them for 5 days at the end of the month? He kind of looks like this lab riding in the cooler.

-Does anyone else snicker whenever they hear the name Chester?

- Ok so I am going to "baby proof" our kitchen. We go out last Saturday and buy these high quality magnetic door locks that require installation. They are pretty heavy duty and so I get looking at the instructions and among the tools that I need to install them is a drill with a 9/32nd bit. Now why on earth do they have to make it be that 1 extra 32nd? 8/32nds would be 1/4 inch which of course I have in my drill bit collection, but nooooooo. Now I have to go out and buy a new drill bit that I will probably never use again just because these silly door locks just have to have that extra 32nd of an inch... Yeesh.

-Don't forget to set your clocks ahead an hour before you go to bed Saturday night.

-Doc

Oh and I saw this and thought of our good pal Jahooni.... BTW - I am Just kidding...

Awww I'll watch MorganDog for you. Ship him to New Jersey. But Josette is not invited as she tried to scratch The Mountain Cat.

Thanks for reminding me about The Sharper Image. I need to go the one on 57th Street by my office. I should buy that robot butler they have in the window if it is on sale.

Single In The City said...

Hey I have a cousin named Chester! LOL!!! we used to call him Chester The Molester!!

Single

Doc said...

But Josette is not invited as she tried to scratch The Mountain Cat. -
BWAAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA - Last time when Vin came to visit he thought that he was on "good" terms with my cat Josette... Josette hates EVERYONE but me... vin was all petting her and talking to her and then was like. "shane you don't know what you are talking about... your cat loves me. I am the man, I am the Mountain Cat.." and right about then josette went WWRWRAAAAAWWWWWLLLL and went of tryign to scratch him... I laughed my ass off!

Doc said...

Single - Take your time... you have plenty of time for babies later... enjoy your youth now!

Leighann said...

I used to have a Swatch Watch! Do you guys remember Hypercolor shirts?

Leighann said...

BTW Doc, you'll be re-baby proofing as soon as Doc Jr. is strong enough to jerk the magnets apart and open the cupboards.

Mark my words.

The Mountain Cat said...

Josette should be put on vacation far away. Comes around and scratchs me all over.

Jay said...

A 9/32 drill bit? No way! That was probably designed by some geek engineer who just thought it would be cool to force people to use a bit they wouldn't normally have. You'll never use that 9/32 bit again. haha

Doc said...

Leighann - I am not strong enough to open these magnets... Patrick ain't got no shot!!! These are heavy duty!

Micky-T said...

I am the man, I am the Mountain Cat.." and right about then josette went WWRWRAAAAAWWWWWLLLL

On The Floor LMAO

Leighann said...

Mt Cat, email me, I have something you might like!

Doc, you keep telling yourself that! My son is almost two and he can tip his metal frame toddler bed over. He ever learned to master the plastic latch things you put inside of cupboards to keep kids from opening them. He jerked on it until it snapped.

(no I'm not injecting roids in his butt either)

The Mountain Cat said...

This is a photo of evil Josette:

Micky-T said...

Doc;
Happy to take the dog if he won't run away. A bit of a round trip thru Knoxville for you.
Keep the cat!

Dana said...

I'd like to do something with Billy Blanks, but a public appearance might not be the best place to do it.

Not only do they still make SWATCH watches, but they are highly collectible here in the U.S. (not me - a friend of mine - really)

How convenient, Sharper Image gift cards aren't being honored just two months after the holiday gift card giving season.

Oh, and Leighann, I still have Hypercolor sweatshirts and due to YEARS of diligent care, it still changes color!

Doc said...

Jay - I think the lock people got together with the drill bit people to screw errrr drill me to the wall on that deal.

MickyT - You should have seen Vin jump and then the look of distain that Josette gave him... HA!!

Lee hann - I will keep you updated on the lock thing... I swear they are heavy duty

Karen said...

Yesterday morning on the radio I heard that Brookstone is "honoring" Shapper Image cards. Not dollar for dollar, but I guess it is better than nothing.

Jahooni, I think it really time to pull off the gloves now. LOL.

Leighann said...

Dana! I'm so jealous, send me a pic of you in it!!

Micky-T said...

Do we vote on giving Jahooni that award?
We better hurry she'll be awake soon.

[I know I'll be sorry for saying that]

All in good fun right?

Leighann said...

Lee hann?? You didn't tell me you were looking for an ass whoopin today!!

Doc said...

Micky T - Alas Knoxville is a bit out of my way... LOL!

Dana - My thoughts exactly on the Shaper Image thing... and I have no idea what happened to my hyper color shirt

Doc said...

Karen - Brookstone??? the Pizza place?

Mic - You better duck...

Lee Hann - :p

Leighann said...

Vin: I sent you something, let me know what you think :)

Doc: I'm going to gouge your eyes out!

Lulita said...

Can't I set the clock just before I go to bed, why does it have to be an hour before.

Jahooni said...

that is funny doc.... made me smile today as I sit here at my desk with 8 projects that i am trying to juggle at once.

I guess I deserved it, right? ;)~

it is only 10:15am, what do you mean that i sleep all day!!! **swat swat**

Swatch watches... omgosh that was like how many years ago. dang that is funny.

I will watch your dog but you must come to Cali and show me the ins and outs of watching a black lab.

Micky-T said...

Doc-
I just offered her my candy bar. You've known her longer than me, think that will help?

I'm gonna run back to work now!

Leighann said...

Jahooni that award is hysterical, you should wear it with pride!

Doc said...

Lulita - ummmm you don't need to change your clock... just leave it right where it is.

Jahooni - I am glad I made you smile... that made my day!

Mic - nope

Jahooni said...

Oh Trust me Leighann I will. I am going to print it out, frame it and it is going in my office. Seriously!

Its the only award I have won ever. Oh wait, I won a wet T-shirt contest before, does that count??

Thank You thank you thank you with all my heart.

now screw off! ;)~

Leighann said...

Jahooni you're full of crap, I gave out a 'bad ass chick' award, why didn't you take that one??!!

Am I not good enough for you?

Wet t-shirt contests only count if I get to judge them!

Screw off? How did you know what my plans for tonight were??

Jahooni said...

you didn't give me an award? when? you are full of crap!

what time are you going to screw off, so i can set my alarm.

let me hop back over to your blog and look at your husband in your shirt. mygosh, i almost fell on the floor this morning as i was getting ready for work when i saw that.

Leighann said...

Jahooni, go to my post made on Feb 22nd, the award is there!

Take it and finally be at peace! LOL

I'll be screwing off as soon as the husband gets home from work and takes a shower!!

As American as Apple Pie said...

Doc--you know I'd gladly take Morgan if I were not also headed to the beach that same time. The Chiles would love it! Hit me up next time.

BTW--kudos on the award for Jahooni...hysterical!

Leighann--I used to LOVE my hypercolor shirt. I totally forgot about them. I wonder if they'll come back in style?

Doc said...

All I got out of that exchange was wet t-shirt contest....

As American as Apple Pie said...

This Sunday is my least fav day of the year. It takes a whole week to reset my system. Plus, I'm already low on sleep as it is!

Leighann said...

I would buy Hypercolor shirts for my entire family!

Then I'd have to tight roll our jeans and bust out the Aqua Net, hehe

As American as Apple Pie said...

Doc & Mt Cat--maybe you should host a virtual wet t-shirt contest?

You'd have to have categories though cause Leighann would blow all of us out of the water.

As American as Apple Pie said...

Leighann--I tried to explain tight-rolled jean to Doc 2 weeks ago and he had no clue what I was talking about! I guess he's just that much older, huh?

The Mountain Cat said...

Leighann, I did not get your email. Email me through my profile on this site please.

Leighann said...

I have a picture of me in Jr High with tight rolled jeans on, I posted it on my blog, let me see if I can find it!

Vin, re-emailing right now!

Doc said...

Apple - I will remember you said that about Morgandog... we don't need to have him watched often but this trip we do. and your least favorite day of the year? come on it's not that bad... I am awake on Sundays by 6 am anyway.

As American as Apple Pie said...

But you're sadistic. I hate mornings in any case and you know sleeping is one of my favorite things to do! You don't think it's that bad? Wait until Sun.

Leighann said...

But you're sadistic

That just made my day!!

Vin, did you get it that time?? *taps foot impatiently*

As American as Apple Pie said...

What's wrong with Crocs? I have 3 pair. They're great in the summer and esp at the beach! Or do you just mean "man-crocs". Cause those are kinda ugly.

As American as Apple Pie said...

Glad I can help, Leighann.

Leighann said...

Yeah Doc, what's up with Crocs? My kids love em! They're the perfect summer shoe!

As American as Apple Pie said...

Is anyone else bored with work today? I think it's the nice warm sunshine that is beckoning me to come out and play that's making me antsy.

Matt-Man said...

Ha...Glad you took the time to think of Jahooni. Cheers!!

Jahooni said...

virtual t-shirt contest? when?

Jahooni said...

thanks matt-man!! you are so darn sweet to me, not like some. **snickers** ;)~

Leighann said...

Our bright and inviting sunshine is a ruse, it's not even 30 degrees out!

My kids are snoozing away *sigh* Gotta love naptime!

I need to make this damn blog my homepage. I'm here more than anywhere else!

Reggie said...

I can't do crocs either.

Christine said...

If you all are wearing Hypercolor shirts it's no wonder you all got the flu! Germy palms touching everywhere. (I've set myself up for your comeback Leighann!)

Congrats Jahooni!

Doc said...

Apple & Leighann - I ain't wearing crocs no matter what you say....

The Mountain Cat said...

Wow Leighann,

I love it! Thank you. ROAR!!!

To para-phrase the movie The Big Lebowski:
'Don't fahck wid da Mountain Cat. Laughable Man! AHHHHAA!'

The Mountain Cat said...

Christine,

You need to fix your photo. You should put up that photo of you from 1985 when you had those elf shoes on. I will have to scan it and post it on this page. hee hee.

Doc said...

Matt Man - I aim to please!

Reggie - See at least there is another manly man on here with me....

Oh yeah and is anyone else wondering what the heck Lee hann and Lance and e-mailing back and forth?

As American as Apple Pie said...

Doc--I'm buying you some for Easter. You'll wear em and like it darn it!

Lulita said...

Mt Cat I see it's not just Leighann that's got big ones. Nice set!

As American as Apple Pie said...

Yes, let us all in on it!

Christine said...

I met a man on a boat wearing a pair of navy colored Crocs and they looked pretty cool. Any other Croc should just be left in the garden. And please men, I don't have to remind you about socks and Berkenstocks, right?

Lulita said...

Sorry, Crocs not just a fad. Really really comfortable. Who could argue with a shoe that weighs next to nothing. Ok so you look like, like someone who also wears birkenstocks. True I wear them both.

Christine said...

Mt Cat. It was 1985 - they were pink colored, ankle boots and I was very cool. Spare my friends the photo, please.

As American as Apple Pie said...

yeah, you can't wear socks with sandals unless you are a small child. Even then, I discourage.

The Mountain Cat said...

Leighann gave me this lion photo to your right. ROAR!!

Sis, stay away from men who love boats! Haven't you learned your lesson? LOL

Christine said...

Tru-dat!

Doc said...

Apple - Did you look at my feet at brunch this past Sunday??

Leighann said...

Okay, you're right...

Men + Crocs = Not getting laid!

BAHAHAHA!

As American as Apple Pie said...

No, why would I? Are you toenails painted?

The Mountain Cat said...

Sis,
Did you just say Tru-dat?? You ain't from the hood Essa.

Leighann said...

I was emailing Vin pics of big things.... no NOT my boobs!

Although.... if he said please!

Doc said...

Apple - No I don't paint my toes.... I was wearing socks with my very manly "Non-Croc" Lands End Beachcombers. and they were cool!

Vin - you seriously need to buy stock in a toothpaste company with that pic... DAAAAAYUM !!

The Mountain Cat said...

I will need a whole tube of toothpaste for those ivories.

Wow 71 comm...72 comments!

Jahooni said...

Christine finally has a blog now?

Crocs, are those the plastic or rubber shoes with holes in them? No one in Cali wears them or no one that i know!

The Mama Bear said...

"honey bunches of bark"
New cereal guaranteed to make your regular, or a freakin' tree!

I'd take the dog, but it would be senseless to drive north to me.

Want to get me a souvenier spoon when you got to Florida?

Yes, I beg from spoons from anyone who travels or who lives outside of WI or IL.

Doc said...

Apple - Save your money... don't buy me any crocs.... Its a waste

Christine - TRU DAT! Don't let Lance tell you how to talk

Jahooni - Yep those are crocs... fine for woman, perfect for kids, NOT meant for men.

The Mountain Cat said...

'Honey Bunches of Bark' is a great cereal. Pour some sap on it. yummy.
But don't buy Post's new cereal 'Groin Nuts'.
I didn't like it at all.

Lulita said...

Do you have a spoon from PA?

Doc said...

HUGE breaking news story moving on the wires... UNC Chapel Hill Student body President forun shot to death multiple times in apparent car jacking... Morehead Scholar... You heard it here first.. this is a HUUUUUGE and terrible story. unbelievable

The Mountain Cat said...

Doc, I just saw the story on Fox News.

Christine said...

And the worst part about the Crocs in my opinion, is then putting those little pins in the holes! I.e., little lady bugs or butterflies... And dare I say it...Uggs! I know they are very popular in NY. Just don't think they're a great look for grown women. Haven't seen them on men.

Jahooni: I'm addicted but really don't have time to write my own blog. But...maybe?

Doc said...

*RollsEyes* @ FoxNews

As American as Apple Pie said...

Just kidding about the crocs. I wouldn't spend my hard-earned money on something that won't be appreciated.

As American as Apple Pie said...

Wow! Do they have any deets as to who or why? When was he found? Could it be a retaliation for the BB game Tu night?

As American as Apple Pie said...

MT Cat--ROTFLMAO @ Groin Nuts!

Lulita said...

Doc, what are you a CNN man?

Hammer said...

I used to live in Rio Rancho but I never ate bark. ;)

The Mountain Cat said...

Lulita, I believe in the fortitude that our forefathers gave the right and freedom to choose between CNN or Fox News without persecution under the Constitution of this great nation.

The Mountain Cat said...

Hammer's back!
Yo what's up tool!?

Lulita said...

What about E! News?

Leighann said...

I vote for Perez Hilton! *gigglesnort*

Doc said...

Doc, what are you a CNN man? - I use multiple sources but NOT "Fixed Noise"

Lulita said...

Doc I wonder if there is any connection with the student shot Tuesday at Auburn University?

Doc said...

Oh and BTW - to answer Apple's question... NO there will not be an award for the 100th comment... LOL!

As American as Apple Pie said...

Just wondering. ;)

Leighann said...

NO AWARD?? DAMNIT! DON'T YOU GUYS LIKE US ANYMORE?

MUST *drool* HAVE *drool* AWARD!!

Lulita said...

fixed noise? Elaborate please.

The Mountain Cat said...

Whoever posts the 100th comment will get to share the first award that Jahooooni wins. LOL. just kidding

As American as Apple Pie said...

Which station plays in shuffle mode Doc? I'm always up for some "Queen of Hearts"!

Doc said...

Hey Apple if you liked the "groin Nuts" you need to look in the labels under Friday Top 10 lists and read the Top 10 rejected ceral names... one of the best series of comments this blog ever had

As American as Apple Pie said...

But did it make 100?

Doc said...

98.7 is shuffle - Out of Winston Salem but we get it... It's called Simon

Jahooni said...

Thanks a lot TMC! Crap I was one behind and I could of HAD IT ALL to myself but now i have to share with apple, at least she is a hottie.;)~

Doc said...

Yes Apple... your "Did it make 100" comment was oficially the 100th comment...

The Mountain Cat said...

As American as Apple Pie had the 100th comment!
And there was much rejoicing.

Jahooni said...

oh wait Doc said no award to be given and isn't he the boss of this blog? ;)~

As American as Apple Pie said...

Couldn't have timed it better had I planned it. Thanks for the recognition. But I still want an award.

Jahooni--thanks for the compliment! I share with you anyday.

Micky-T said...

Doc, I'm soo with you on the crocks.
Shouldn't be a man thing!

Doc said...

Lulita - Fixed noise is Keith Olberman from MSNBC's pet name for Fox News... His show countdown at 8pm ET M-F on MSNBC is freakin' great...especially the "Worst Person in the World" segment... however you may not want to watch if you are a conservative... and especially a conservative with no sense of humor. :o

As American as Apple Pie said...

C'mon, this is a 1st. Don't we celebrate ALL first times? *wink*

As American as Apple Pie said...

Doc--Are you trying to slam conservatives?!!

Micky-T said...

I'm surprised that the comment box didn't blow up with that many incomings!

Lulita said...

NOT a conservative. I'll check it out. I hope I've demonstrated a sense of humor?

Lulita said...

Micky-T you R funny!

The Mountain Cat said...

Come on lets try for a 1,000 comments. The 1,000th comment gets a free dinner at Tad's Stakes on me.
Ready? Go!

Micky-T said...

Kick ass every one!
Matt-Man took all day last HNT to get a 100, you did it in 3 hours!
Three Cheers

Lulita said...

1000

Doc said...

Doc--Are you trying to slam conservatives?!!

Nope just trying to give them fair warning that they will not like Countdown with Keith Olberman on MSNBC from 8-9 weekdays...

Apple there really are a few things I need to teach you ....

As American as Apple Pie said...

such as?

Doc said...

Hey Lance... way to go there Skippy how about setting that bar out there next to Uranus next time instead of just to Saturn... ROFL!

The Mountain Cat said...

'One Thousand zero zero party's over we're out of time'

The Mountain Cat said...

Hey Doc, Maybe when we hit a 1,000 this page will 'turn over' like when you hit a million on Ms. Pac-Man. Remember those good ol' days?

Micky-T said...

Tiny little Mountain Cat!

Doc said...

Hey is anyone else with me that Ole Lance changes his damn picture too much ??

As American as Apple Pie said...

'Party like it's 1999!' Ahhh, a good year!!!

As American as Apple Pie said...

Yes, it's giving me a heady-ache. Strive for consistancy!

The Mountain Cat said...

Doc, No I don't.

Lulita said...

Looks like a Mt Cat from Monsters Inc.

Doc said...

Ya'll quit encouraging him... He actually thinks this is funny. It's my own fault though - I should have kept that thought to myself....

Micky-T said...

Come on MC I saw the next one ...post it!

The Mountain Cat said...

Fine! Be that way Doc! Lets see if you get to 1000 comments without hearing from me the rest of the day! *sniff*

Micky-T said...

Watch out Doc

Doc said...

Oh hush....

Lulita said...

Oh MC that new pic got the Laugh out loud award, Pardner.

The Mountain Cat said...

No more words from me. Total silence. Lets see how you like it.

Lulita said...

looks more like mount men cat.

Jahooni said...

i thought this post was about me finally winning an award????

Micky-T said...

Yea!!!! Jahooni !!!

Lulita said...

Micky-t: Is your yard a mud puddle?

Micky-T said...

Lu- ??... Nope, grass is coming in good!

The Mountain Cat said...

'Hello? hello? ello? llo? lo? o? ?
Echo. echo. cho. ho. o. .
Pinch hitting for Pedro Borbon... Manny Mota. Mota.. ota...ta...a...'

Micky-T said...

Hey MC 140 in 4 hours

The Mountain Cat said...

wow I was only joking when I said I'd be quiet. I guess I scared everyone off. :...(

Jahooni said...

i have posted my award today so THANK all of you ! ;)~

Becky said...

You're wearing Crocs right now, aren't you? You had better not lie to the Internet, because we KNOW.

ZenDenizen said...

I would spend my allowance on Wham-O records if it was 1985.

Or the lead singers of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Wham and Hall & Oates could get together as Anthony Michael Hall.

Have a nice weekend.
