Thursday Random Thoughts 5/1

Stuff I have been thinking about:

-The petting zoo that I posted about last week turned out to be nothing more than 3 rabbits and a goat. Not too exciting but Patrick enjoyed it.

- Jimmy Buffett played here Tuesday night and we hit a record low of 36... Coincidentally it was also April 29th back in 2000 that Absolutgator and I saw him and it was a record high of like 97 that day in Greensboro, NC...odd

- Something tells me that Wesley Snipes won't be receiving one of those "Economic stimulus" checks from the IRS.

-Check this out. People from the island of Lesbos are suing lesbians for stealing their name. I can't make this stuff up folks. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction.

-I have it on good authority that two regular readers of YJKOBT are having a "date" for lunch today. Probably as I am posting this. I am not at liberty to say who they are but I am not one of them.

-Did you guys hear about Roger Waters missing flying pig? The mystery has been solved.

-This weeks very annoying TV commercial is for the Nabisco 100 calorie packs where the ladies are in an elevator and start to play "patty cake" and sing Miss Mary Mack. Very annoying

-I thought about blogging about the man in Austria who kept his daughter locked in an underground dungeon for 24 years an fathered a number of his own grandchildren but since it's just the sickest thing I can imagine I can't bring myself to do it.... We try and keep it lighthearted around here and there is nothing lighthearted about that situation.

-If the movie "Baby Mamma" had been starring Brittney Spears would it have been titled "Throw Baby Mamma from the Trainwreck" instead?

-When I was a kid and watching cartoons was actually acceptable I always thought that Captain Cave Man was the coolest cartoon character.

-Interesting search note of the week: Someone from Ontario Canada found our blog by searching the following words. "Dancing with stars Mario boner" Uhhh thanks for that Apple... I think.

-I heard on the radio that there is a group of vegans who are trying to get all the barbecue restaurants in Baltimore to install "meat vents" to keep the smell of cooking barbecue meat from perforating the air in the restaurant. Ummmm, hey vegans... THAT'S THE POINT of a barbecue joint! And what are you doing in there anyway if you are a vegan?

-Note to the Reverend Jeremiah Wright....How about you SHUT IT dude... You ain't helping anything.

-Yesterday here at work we had a firedrill...I felt like I was back in 5th grade again.

-Does anyone else think that there is something not quite right about David Blaine?

-I hate hearing the voice menu that says "listen carefully because the options have recently changed" There is one place that I call frequently whose options recently changed back in 2006.. Change the voice menu already!!! Of course if they did than then the options would have recently changed.

- If there was any doubt that Paula Abdul is a fruitcake (or a drunk) then Tuesday's performance show should erase it. She couldn't even tell the difference between the dress rehearsal and the the live show. She tried to critique one of the contestants, Jason Castro on a song that really "hadn't happened" yet... Yeesh

- I am really looking forward to Peachfest on May 20th. We are going to have a lot of fun. You guys are gonna love the T-shirts. I have one of my best peeps working on them. They are gonna be great !!

-Doc

I agree...David Blaine IS strange.

...and Paula was holding it together pretty well this season - until Tuesday!!! She's just a hot mess!! My cousin and I were sitting on my couch going 'huh'??? At first, we thought WE missed something!

That menu options thing annoys me, too...

So, Mt. Cat is out sick from work today. I hear he has a migraine...probably from too many renditions of John Mayer's "Say". Sorry, TMC!! = (

KaritaG said...

I agree about David Blaine. He's like, not human or something. Especially all of that "street magic" he did before he got super famous...I mean, if you watch those videos it's just weird. Scary-weird.

Doc said...

Yeah Mt. Cat is out sick today... Feel better soon buddy!

leapofaith said...

Karitag - I know! Did you see the one where he pulled a tooth out of that chick's mouth??? CRAZY!!!

leapofaith said...

...and I really wanna know who's having a lunch 'date' today! Hmmmm.....

Bina said...

Good Lord you think alot!

Wesley, Wesley, Wesley. And he had it so good, too.

Well, i know WE aren't on a date so who could it be now??

Austria man? Is there any punishment that can be given that would be good enough?

I haven't thought about Captain Cave Man in YEARS and now I'm going to be doing that ALL DAY!

Vegan's in a bbq place? Strange indeed.

I hate voice menus, even ours!

Check this out. Call 1-800-987-2362, press 0, and listen to that shit they put on OUR menu! I want to poke the person in the eyeballs who put that on there. Not only do I hate her voice, but I hate the freaking message!!!!!!

Okay, now I have to calm down.

Paula Abdul. Now I have to look that up cause I have NO idea what you are talking about!

Lu' said...

Migraines, been there felt that, no fun at all. Feel better Mt Cat.

Anndi said...

A date? ooooooooh! You had to KNOW that was going to get attention!

Poor kitykat... someone should rub his temples.

I LOVED Captain CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAVEMAAAAAAAAAAN!!

Poor Pauler... she should be blonde.

Doc said...

Karitag...For real. That dude gives me the creeps.

Bina....It's too bad it's not us on the date but alas it's not... AND GOOD GRIEF that crap on your voicemenu just gave me a headache. I am now in the same boat with Mt. Cat.

Doc said...

Anndi... Captain Caveman could pull ANYTHING out of his fur.... LOL!

I am not at liberty to discuss who is on the date... Those two will have to divulge if they care too...

The Mountain Cat said...

I am on a lunch date with Annikan McFly.
I am feeling better and working from home. Thank you.

Christine said...

I freaking LOVE David Blaine! Are you kidding? I actually met him last summer at a concert that was held where I work (lot's of celebs walking around) and he did a magic card trick for me. Right in my hands, right before my eyes- it was AMAZING! I don't know how he does it. And his spooky, weird way adds to his being so amazing. I have an autographed 10-of-hearts right here on my bulletin board!

Christine said...

As for those phone messages - as if we remember what they menu was the fist time. What's worse to me is when someone leaves a voice message for me at work with the pre-recorded, "this message is marked, urgent." What does that mean I should do? Press my ear harder to the phone? Turn op the volume? I never understood that one...

Anndi said...

Doc, that's one of the things I loved about it... I always wondered, had there been a cavemiss... would she be like a Parisian pulling out a baguette from under her arms ... (too far?)

I can see you prancing about with a "I know a secret and you don't, naninaniboooboo" look on your face.

Anndi said...

Vince dear, I'm glad you're feeling better... so you don't need me to come rub your temples in my nurse's uniform?

Doc said...

I can see you prancing about with a "I know a secret and you don't, naninaniboooboo" look on your face.

Yep... and ya'll quit e-mailing me asking who it is... I ain't telling. ROTFL !

The Mountain Cat said...

Anndi, Yes you can still come over as 'preventative medicine'. LOL.
But wear a French maid's outfit instead.

Miss Merry Sunshine said...

Ooohhh to keep everyone in suspense must be great fun! What will you do with all that power Doc???

Captain Caveman is the shit!

Anndi said...

Bina... I listened to your phone message. I feel an urge to stick a fork in my eye...

Doc said...

LOL @ Miss Merry... you are too funny!

Dana said...

Does anyone else think that there is something not quite right about David Blaine?

You were watching Oprah again, weren't you Doc???

Doc said...

Bina... If your toll free number has an outrageosly expensive call from the other side of the world on it then blame that nanuk of the north Anndi.

:p

Doc said...

You were watching Oprah again, weren't you Doc???

I do not watch Oprah... OR the View!

Doc said...

Ok... After a little exchange I had a little while ago I need to ask you guys something. I am being told that everyone thinks that the "t-shirts" we are making for Peachfest are real honest-to-god wear them around t-shirts...

I say that you guys are smart enough to know that I am talking about commemerative t-shirts that you post on your blog... kinda like a "peach" or a "lions kiss"...

Please tell me that I am right on this one...

phfrankie bondo said...

I think Mic should be the Grand Marshall durring Peachfest...I could pull him around in my wagon and he could wave to the blogoshpere....

phrank again said...

...with his ruddy hands!

Karen said...

I got my Court hearing adjourned for peachfest. Honestly. I said "I have just been informed that I have an important out of town committment on the afternoon of May 20, 2008."

I figure that the fact Peachfest will be celebrated in many towns across the universe is good enough to make my excuse true.

Jahooni said...

Whoop Whoop Whoop! Jahooni is in the House! ;)~

Doc said...

Pfrankie... MickyT can be the Grand Marshall - he will have to be out on his boat on Peach pond.


Are you serious Karen??? Holy Peaches Batman !!

Karen said...

I am totally serious. I wrote a letter and faxed over. I have priorities.

By the way, I always loved Capt. Caveman too.

As American as Apple Pie said...

Whew!!! I just got back from this really loooooong HOT lunch date. How y'all doin this afternoon?

Doc said...

Karen needs a shirt that says "I got my trial postponed to come to Peachfest"

LOL!

Aunt Becky said...

"meat vent"

Bwahahahahaha!

That's priceless!

Jay said...

If I were a vegan I probably wouldn't be going to any BBQ joints.

Wesley Snipes should sue for his rebate check. LOL

Lu' said...

Doc, t-shirts, I wouldn't bet the farm on that.

Lu' said...

Doc I actually thought of you while watching AI. I was thinking you would be rolling your eyes at the oh so fake attempt at suprise that David Archuletta made when he heard he was safe. He was looking like, what? me safe? Wha, really? OH please like you thought you were going home.

Doc said...

Blah.. David Archuleta. You just want to get my blood boiling this afternoon don't you?

Lu' said...

Yesterday here at work we had a firedrill...I felt like I was back in 5th grade again Maybe who ever organized the drill knows something you don't... Keep your valuable handy.

Cinder-Single said...

HAHAHAHAHA!! JAY You made me spit Chips on the Laptop!! HAHAHA!!!

He should sue? OH my goodness I am suing also, I don't have kids or a job, but I think i should still get one.. My blog is my Job!!

Who is on a date? hmmmmmmm MT. Cat are you on a Date!! OH right , you are sick! hmmmm Wanna go on a date? Had to throw that in there.. Be in the Nig Apple this summer.. Maybe we will hook up for dinner! HAHA!! I will be 19 then..

Okay does that win a peach???

LOL!!!

Betty said...

That commercial irritates me, too, for some reason. But, the one I really hate is one that asks for people to call in and arrange to take part in some sort of testing for a product, and, in the next commercial, turns around and scolds you for not calling and offering to be a guinea pig. "Four weeks ago, we ASKED you to call this number, blah, blah, blah.

Our PBS station took that approach with viewers("If you don't send a donation, you shouldn't be watching, etc.,etc.) and I think they had the lowest total donations ever that year.

Betty said...

Just read your comment about not watching the View. I watch it every day because it is becoming increasingly clear to me that, before long, Whoopie is going to snap and reach across that table and snatch Elizabeth bald-headed. Hasn't anyone else noticed how irritated Whoopie gets when Elizabeth interrupts her, yet again, with the Republican talking points? OK, I'll shut up, now.

Anndi said...

Doc... pfffffffffffffffffffft!!

Nanuk indeed... Although I do look awful cute in mukluks and a bikini...

Claudia said...

"Something tells me that Wesley Snipes won't be receiving one of those "Economic stimulus" checks from the IRS."

Bwahahahahahhahahha. You think???! God, you crack me up.

Dana said...

Well Doc, no one else is admitting to it, but I'll say that I thought you were talking about honest to goodness, wearable, t-shirts. Maybe that's just because I was imagining another wet t-shirt HNT ...

As American as Apple Pie said...

Thank You, Dana! I knew there was a reason I liked you...both for the thought and the we t-shirt image.

Doc said...

Ok Ok.. sorry that I was misleading about t-shirts... Heck if someone wants to pony up some cash I am sure we can get them made!

Thank you Claudia... Iam glad somebody caught that one. :p

Knight said...

Doc- I knew what you meant about the t-shirts.

Who is one a lunch date? I want to go ! Hey single, if Mountain Cat doesn't step up we can have a girl date when you visit!

Talisman said...

David Blane freaks me out and yet, at the same time, I'd love to be that awesome. Seriously, levitation? How cool would that be.

Micky-T said...

I had a millimoment, thinking they might be REAL shirts, but common sense got the best of me.

You'd need thousands!!!


Grand Peach Marshall Pond ???
Never heard of it!

WomensDaily said...

David Blane lost his damn mind a long time ago.

Lesley said...

A fire drill.... excitement plus! But really, while you were outside they had someone up there checking your computer for porn.. That's what those fire drills are really for!
Paula Abdul ..Who's she? lol... Seriously, I have always tried to ignore her...
So have we worked out who's been on the date?
Mt. Cat... Glad your feeling a bit better. I have migraines occasionly and I wanna chop my head off at those times.
Peachfest... YAY :-) but what time will it be for me? Australian Easter Time.. How many hours are you behind me?

Cinder-Single said...

Sis: I already have planned to have a date with you anyway when I show up!!

LOL!!

The AbsolutGator said...

Things are just hotter when I'm around.

Ginormous Boobs said...

Those Lesbos got to lighten up!
