Thursday Random Thoughts 5/8

Stuff I have been thinking about:

-I found myself in an unusual spot last weekend. I was in the drivers seat while my wife and a lady at Starbucks discussed the difference between coffees. Who the heck cares if it's half Colombian and half Guatemalan ??

-Reason # 632849 why David Archuleta shouldn't be the American Idol = Dude, the "American Idol" should not be from Utah.

-I heard the other day that when Barack Obama spoke in Charlotte last week he entered to Rick Astley's "Never gonna give you up." Apparently he is not familiar with Rick Rolling. I don't know why I find this so funny, but I do.

-Man, I really need a haircut.

-I wonder if Aunt Becky would kick my butt if I started a new blog called "Daddy Wants Tequila" ?

-Interesting search note of the week. For some reason in the last week we got a bunch of searches for "homeland security" and similar words that landed on What kind of Rush Are You. Not exactly sure why but they have been from Maryland, Texas, Indiana, Arizona, and California

-Reminder! If you didn't know this Sunday is Mother's Day. you all better do something nice for the Moms in your life.

-Is anyone else as excited about the new Indiana Jones movie as I am?

-Does anyone else think that Josef Fritzl, (Mugshot picture to the left) the Austrian man who is accused of keeping his own daughter as a sex slave for 24 years and fathering his own grandchildren looks like the Grinch?

- Lord help us all. My wife has discovered Craigslist. She wants to sell everything now that she has had some success with it. I now must hide everything that I don't want sold or risk another "cassette tapes" incident... LOL!

-Speaking of the Internet, I think that my wife and I may be in the process of being screwed out of an item we bought on Ebay for our son. We bought a sort of plastic play fence (like 2 of these) to keep him contained and since they are discontinued we got a good deal or so it seemed because we got 2 of them for $135. But since we payed for them we are getting no communication from the seller about being able to pick them up. I think we are getting screwed and I am not happy about it.

-What exactly is so interesting about A-Rod's wife? She pops up on the news every few months for something or another. Who cares?

-I am not making this up. I heard that Nintendo is developing a pole dancing game for the Wii... Yeesh, and I thought Guitar Hero was bad, now video games are going to inspire a whole new generation of strippers.

-Doc

Yes, he looks like the Grinch.

Hey! Pole dancing! Now I can start properly training Chile #2 for her future career!

So funny about Melissa and Starbucks!!! Is she a coffeeholic too?

As American as Apple Pie said...

Can I give you some stuff to sell for me on Craigslist? It'll keep her away from your stuff for awhile.

Micky-T said...

Get a haircut - hide all your good stuff - don't let aunt becky kick your butt - watch out the mortgage companys are planning a takeover of the country - cancel your check - drink reg coffee

Ginormous Boobs said...

I am excited for the Wii fitness...but stripper games would certainly win out!

The Mountain Cat said...

I need Tequila. *hicup*

Dana said...

If you didn't know this Sunday is Mother's Day. you all better do something nice for the Moms in your life.

I'm going to insert my Mother's Day pet peeve here ...

I do not expect a Mother's Day card from my husband. In fact, I expect very little from my husband on Mother's Day other than paying for dinner (we have a tradition of IHOP dinner on Mother's Day) and helping the kids - IF THEY ASK - with transportation and $$ for a gift/card. I am NOT my husband's mother, nor do I feel he needs to acknowledge the fact that I parent every single day of the year.

OK, rant over, soap box pushed under the bed ...

Bina said...

I KNEW he looked familiar!I just can't believe they are claiming insanity. Is their an Evil plee? I mean, if this man was truly insane, would he be able to function in society for 24 years???

Why is all your stuff scrunched together instead of being in a tick list like it usually is???

Hmmm, pole dancing. Now that's just ... weird.

Jay said...

If they make a pole dancing game I'm gonna go get a Wii and practice so I can compete against the youngest of the Kardashian sisters. I don't know how old she is, but in one episode of "Keeping up with the Kardasians" she was showing all the adults how to swing around the pole. I found it very disturbing and had to turn the channel. And if *I* find it disturbing you KNOW it was bad. ;-)

Karen said...

I am all over that pole dancing game! How fun! Just another reason I love the Wii.

The guy REALLY does look like the Grinch.

Are you sure your wife is only selling things of Craigslist? I hear their Intimate Ecounters area is popular....

As American as Apple Pie said...

Jay--The only one I would worry about finding something more disturbing than you would be Matt-Man.

Bina--I was wondering the same thing.

Dana--I have high expectations for Mother's Day. I'm supposed to sleep in and receive breakfast in bed. However, that went out the window with the current job. So, I shall collect another day. But, I do expect my children to behave really well (yeah, I know YJKOBT) and Hubby to bow to my every wish.

Karen said...

Jay - I saw that episode of the Kardashians. The kid was pretending to be on Girls Gone Wild while an adult family friend video taped it for youtube. DISTURBING!

Lu' said...

-Does anyone else think that Josef Fritzl, (Mugshot picture to the left) the Austrian man who is accused of keeping his own daughter as a sex slave for 24 years and fathering his own grandchildren looks like the Grinch? - Lord help us all.

HA HA HA GOOD ONE!

WNG said...

I keep trying to get Mama G to start a blog: Mama Hearts Tequila so I say go for it. Oh, and I am more excited about the Indiana Jones movie than anyone but Harrison Ford :)
What would the commercials for Wii Pole Dancing be? Would they still have the guys in the little car asking Grandma, "Want to play?"

As American as Apple Pie said...

Ahhh, much better. Thanks for fixing Doc!

Dirty Pirate Hooker said...

Being a single parent, Mother's Day is the worst day of the year for me. I don't get flowers, or crappy jewelry or any of the other "kid like" gifts that other moms get. I realize it's not about the gifts, but I'm selfish and I fekking want them!

That guy totally looks like the grinch, LOL!!! I do a pretty mean grinch face if I do say so myslef. Oh, I just did say so myself.

Sorry, I've had too much coffee today...

Doc said...

Sorry ya'll I just got back from my meeting... Took forever.

Micky-T said...

Doc , I'm not sure I need help from the Lord that YOUR wife found Craigslist. LOL

Like I said, hide your good stuff!

Doc said...

Why is all your stuff scrunched together instead of being in a tick list like it usually is???


Sorry, I was trying something new with the line breaks to see if it worked better and it auto posted at 12:01 pm while I was out... I fixed it.

Aunt Becky said...

"I wonder if Aunt Becky would kick my butt if I started a new blog called "Daddy Wants Tequila"

No, I think I might marry you if you did that :)

Knight said...

Josef Fritzel. I wish him torture and torment for his remaining years. If he is crazy but him in a straight jacket and a tiny little padded room. Sounds fair to me.

Craigslist is an addiction. I found my job and my apartment on craigslist.

I have never been fond of Wii but now that they offer pole dancing I have to get one. I just have to.

Why do husbands buy crap for their wife on mother's day? I send stuff to my mom and grandmothers. My dad doesn't do shit. Well, he probably calls his mom but that makes sense... right?

Doc said...

No, I think I might marry you if you did that :)


:o

Doc said...

Knight... Craigslist an addiction?? ... If my wife tries to sell me on there please somebody call for an intervention.

Jay... Holy Cow I never thought you of all people would find that disturbing... God help Bruce Jenner.

Knight said...

Doc- She probably already has a profile for you posted. She will be pimping you out to strangers for extra cash.

pat said...

whats the difference between selling on Ebay and craigslist?

Doc said...

I am scared now !!

Doc said...

I think craigslist is run by a hippy and its just a free for all swap meet on line. You don't pay to sell things on there. My wife just sold some maternity bras that were too small for her. They weren't used just too small. It didn't cost her to sell them... She is putting the rest of her maternity stuff and all the baby's things on there... I am scared my stuff is next!

pat said...

thanks Doc
Im going to start looking around for stuff i dont need

The Mountain Cat said...

On Craigslist you can have discreet sexual encounters....ah...so I'm told.

KaritaG said...

Pole dancing on the Wii sounds way better than attempting to do so in public...that guy totally looks like the grinch, how creepy! And I know a guy who is hosting an Indiana Jones party where we are all going to get wasted beforehand and he is going to roll out a red carpet for us all to walk on as we go into the movie theater...so yes, there are people as excited as you.

Doc said...

Karitag... I love the idea of an Indiana Jones party !!!

Christine said...

Craig's list is cool - But I would think you'd need to be cautious - somehow. It's not watched over I don't believe.

Doc: Have you ever actually played Guitar Hero! It is sooooo much fun. Seriously, the funniest game I played in a long time, with 80's songs... Ask Pat. She's a pro!

Dirty Pirate Hooker said...

TMC - I am with you on the "discreet" sexual encounters...not that I've ever had any...I've only heard...
*cough, cough*

Anndi said...

I was a part of the test group for the stripper game... what?

Anndi said...

We could buy Doc on Craigslist? OOOOH!!!!

Miss Merry Sunshine said...

Why do I want to buy that game?? Something is seriously wrong with me, lol!

Cinder-Single said...

Did someone say Pole Dancing? I have a Wii, So ummm I have to get that game, that is how I am going to be paying for gas!!!!

hell yeah he looks like the grinch... I would love to just shake the hell out of him!!! GRRRRRRRRRR!!! I need a hair cut too!

Want me to open a can of whip ass on the Ebay seller? I got you back I am a REH Angel!!! LOL

Toodles!!

Talisman said...

That guy really does look like the grinch!

Good luck with hiding everything for the Craigslist selling, one of my girl friends is doing the same thing to her husband. LOL

CarmenSinCity said...

I love the pole dancing idea!!!

Sassy Mama Bear said...

Are you saying Craigslist is dangerous? For husbands only? LOL
I have been planning on looking into it, as I hate Ebay.

Hope you get your items. Keep bugging the seller big time.

Yes, that man is Grinh like in so many ways.

Get a haircut dude, and do it while listening to Haircut 100!

Pole dancing for Wii, yeah...NOT! I'd break the pole.

I am going to Spamalot on Mom's Day and hoping I get spoiled even more.

Anndi said...

Lucky SMB!! I'd LOVE to go to Spamalot!
