Thursday Random Thoughts 2/4/10

Stuff I have been thinking about:

-I never realized just how good Taco Bell's Cinnamon Twists were until last week... YUM!

-I wonder if anyone who actually lives and works on a farm uses or plays Farmville on Facebook? Somehow I doubt it. (disclaimer - I don't do this and please don't send me any requests asking me to watch your chickens.)

-The snow was fun for like a day and a half. After that it became ice and a pain in the ass.

- Is anybody else already tired of the Kings of Leon?

- I finally saw The Hangover this week and you guys were all right. It was hilarious and certainly one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long long time. Suckaaaaaas!

-Happy 50th Birthday to Harris Teeter. The grocery store where the stars of the universe aligned and the fate of the gods happened to put The Mt. Cat and I there at the exact same time the day we met for the first time... Ahhh Memories!

-I have never seen the show Hoarders but I have heard enough of you talk about it to get the gist. I have a funny feeling that I have a bit of Hoarder in me. I hoard fast food condiments. I have more packs of ketchup, Taco Bell Mild Sauce, ranch, honey mustard, mayo, Arby and Horsey sauce and who knows what else in my desk drawer than you can imagine. It's to the point that I literally can't put anything else in there. I almost wish I had my camera to take a picture for you guys.

- This week also marks the 50th anniversary of Bubble Wrap. Am I the only one who really doesn't have the desire to pop this stuff?

- So when does the urinal at my work the has a sign saying "Temporarily out of Order - Service call has been Made" since about Thanksgiving officially become permanently out of order?

-I think that the only item of clothing more personal than shoes is underwear. Being as such this is why I own my own pair of bowling shoes. I don't use them very often but at least I have them. Can you imagine a business where you go up and rent underwear to use for a few hours like you do with bowling shoes? Yuck!

- Looks like most of the readers here at YJKOBT want the Saints to win the Super Bowl and I agree with them. My head tells me otherwise though. My prediction for this weekends Super Bowl Final Score Indianapolis 31 - New Orleans 24.

Until Next week....

-Doc

Cinnamon twists huh? I always found that a strange combination with tacos so I don't remember ever trying them...

Abby has developed a love for bubble wrap. I try to get it in the trash can before she notices it was even in the house.

And, yes, I do believe the Colts will win, but you can never underestimate the pure will and desire of a team like the Saints.

Southern Belle said...

Pop..poppoppoppop….love the stuff…specially the big bubbles you can stomp on!!!

Really Doc I think you may eat too much fast food! Your first topic Cinnamon Twist and then the condiments from fast food….stay away from the drive thru….unless it says Hot N Now!

Hmmmm……Kings of Leon…. tired of them? NO……but I have moved on and have been listening to Citizen Cope……makes me want to move my hips.

Four Dinners said...

What exactly IS Taco Bell?

I've seen one or two about and I think my daughter may have been in one but, frankly, I have no idea.

Mind you I've only been in a Macdonalds once and that was more than enough!!!!

terri said...

I don't play Farmville either. I have a zoo on Facebook and it was fun for a couple of days. But now it's just sorely neglected.

Snow is always fun the first couple of days. Here in MN, we enjoy it until about Christmas time. Then we all just crab about it for the next three months.

You ARE the only one who doesn't want to pop bubble wrap. What's wrong with you? ;-)

One of the toilets in the ladies' room at my office was over-flushing for about a month. One day I called building maintenance and they came and fixed it within 10 minutes. Maybe you just need to call about the urinal again. I think somebody forgot about it.

I own my own bowling shoes too. And a ball. And that powder stuff. And the special towel to wipe oil off the ball. Cuz I'm a bowling geek :-)

Southern Belle said...

Terri......the comment what is wrong with you to Doc. I would like to answer that one. He is a man that has several nicknames, has had the same hair do for more than 20 years, owns more atheltic apparel then anyone I have ever known and now to find out that he is a condiment hoarder...plus other things I don't dare to mention....NEED I say MORE!

Doc said...

Mandy - Oh I am pulling for the Saints and I hope I am wrong.

Belle - I thought that you woudl take offense to that Kings of Leon quip... Thought those were your boys!

4 Dins - you really need to try more fast food

Doc said...

Terri - I asked the mantenece guy about that urinal last week and he claims they are still gonna fix it... The sign has been up so long its beginning to Yellow

Doc said...

Belle - Oh my! Seems that someone has some pent up anger or something this morning... ROFL!

Southern Belle said...

Doc....No not really.....just giving Terri some light on what is wrong with you! I'm as happy pigs in slop! lol

I could pop bubble wrap all day long. I love it.

I liked "The Hangover" but was a little let down by it. I felt it was a little overhyped. Still good, still funny, just not as much as everyone told me.

Kat said...

I still have to see "The Hangover". I keep meaning to but I haven't.

I actually kinda like both teams. I used to think that Manning was a whiny turd, but then I saw him on SNL and I totally dig him now. Isn't that lame? So, I usually root for the Colts. BUT, the Saints have such a great story and they have NEVER even been to the Superbowl before. Plus, I always root for the underdog. :)

Doc said...

Belle - Pigs in slop huh? Interesting...

Mrs. D - Overhyped? wow... It was laugh out loud funny. You must be a hard to please movie watcher...

Kat - It's the other Manning that is the whiny turd...

Disaster Chick said...

I don't think they do cinnamon twists here, last I knew it was like nachos. It's been awhile.

I know a kid that grew up on a farm that has played Farmville.

We've had snow on the ground since December 6th - very unusual for Kansas. I'm leaving next week for Galveston and a Caribbean cruise.

I'm sure I've heard Kings of Leon - I just don't know which songs they play.

Never seen The Hangover.

So a grocery store created partners in crime?

Horders is an interesting show. What would you do if someone came buy and dumped your stash, threw it into the big icky dumpster? Would you have emotional issues? If so, you might be a horder.

I like popping bubble wrap but can only go for so long.

If the sign is starting to yellow maybe people are using it. Again, a friendly reminder is useful. However, can't you see why they are not jumping at the bit to fix it. Yuck! Sometimes it is good to outsource.

I've actually considered buying bowling shoes for the rare occassion. However, having shoes and a score between 80 - 120 might cause someone to die laughing.

I'm going for the Saints since it is their first time to the Super Bowl. Wonder if Eli will be sitting by himself watching like Peyton did.

Evil Twin's Wife said...

I had the unfortunate incident to turn on the TV after work one day and land on Oprah. They were swabbing various items to see how filthy they were and it seems bowling ball holes have quite a lot of fecal matter in them. Time to buy your own ball! :-)

The Mountain Cat said...

That Kings of Leon song was annoying from day 1. It should not be song of the year IMHO. It's not as good a song as say Pants on the Ground?

Happy anniversary Doc, you pooftah.

- TMC

Paul Wynn said...

Oh man I remember when they had churros before that.. yummy

Doc said...

Chick - Maybe not emotional issues... but I would be pissed!

ETW - YAY! I do have my own balls and clean them after each use. (hey that didn't sound right)

MT. Cat - Thank you Sir... Mr. Harris and Mr. Teeter had no idea what friends they would unite...

Paul - Not familiar with them but if it's Taco Bell they must be good...

Loni's World said...

Loved las vegas? hookers, booze, VD and going broke? Come visit lol

I love the spam comments, don't you?

Ha-ha
lol at the farmville...I wonder?

Doc said...

SPAM Comment - GONE! LOL

Thank you Lori!

Jay said...

"- Is anybody else already tired of the Kings of Leon?"

No, no you're not. I used to love them, but they're annoying the crap outta me lately.

I'm hoping for a really high scoring Super Bowl. Offense is much more exciting. I'll be rooting for the Saints, but don't have anything against the Colts.

But, like you my mind says Colts and it might not be that close. Maybe 44-28.

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

I do not farm on facebook, but? Feed my fish? Kidding. I don't do that either. now? I so need to see hangover so bad!

jennifer said...

Cinnamon twists AND bubble wrap? That is a cracklin' good time right there :)

The Covert Lover said...

There's just something theraputic about bubble wrap for some...

Farmtown, Farmville, Farm whatever - It seriously disappoints me that adults play those games.

Hangover was good but definitely not one of those I'd buy to watch repeatedly. And I agree that it was over-hyped. :)
