Thursday Random Thoughts 10/28/10

Stuff I have been thinking about:

-Uh Oh, I read the other day that they are making Halloween themed Peeps. Yuck. As if peeps hadn't already ruined Easter now they want to mess up Halloween too.

-Am I the only one who doesn't like "Select a Size" paper towels? Hey I mean just give me the full paper towel please!

-Speaking of things I'm not a fan of please add the "spork" to that list. Give me either a fork or a spoon but not some strange hybrid of the two that doesn't get the job of either done properly.

-Looking back at Disaster Chick's birthday post to me on Monday and I why wonder why Marilyn needed the words to sing Happy Birthday to Kennedy?

-Beware when anyone says, "Oh it's just a natural part of being a human being. Everyone does it." or something like that because I promise you something gross is coming up next.

-I'm taking a half day at work today and heading up to Raleigh for the Florida State - NC State football game tonight. Should be a fun time and a great game but say a quick prayer for me. NC State fans are not known for being the most hospitable or polite to visiting fans so I hope I am safe... GO NOLES >>>-----;;;------->

-In last week's random thoughts post I made the mistake of bragging that I had started downloading music on Limewire. That didn't last long. The website has been shut down for legal reasons. So ends my brief foray into music downloading. Oh well it was fun the 2 times I did it.

- Ever since I cleaned out my desk drawer I have been doing much better about not hoarding ketchup packets. I don't think there is ever a situation where I will need 100 of them.

-My wife and I decided to get rid of DirecTV and consolidate our TV, home phone, and internet service into the Time Warner "Triple Play" bundle. I think it's going to save us upwards of $145 a month and we really can't ignore that kind of savings. I just hope I don't miss any of my sports channels too much. Anyone else done this? Any problems or issues.

-So far I still feel great and haven't gotten "The Funk." Knock on Wood!

-It's almost time to break out my one Christmas decoration that I use on my desk. It's a reindeer that is made out of the same greenery that they make fake Christmas trees out of. I love this little guy and I only get to put him up for 2 months a year. (the rest of the year that spot is taken by a Jeff Gordon antennae ball) I might have to take a picture for you guys and post it later in Christmas season.

OK that's all I have for this week. You all have a great Thursday and I will catch up with you later.

I hate the Select-a-Size too.

I have the Cablevision triple play. Other than not having Fox right now due to contract disputes, I like it.

Hope you keep ahead of the Funk!

We have the TW bundle...Oh sure the internet connection goes out once in awhile only during our BTR show, but other than that, it is a good deal. Seriously, I like it. Cheers Doc, Go 'Pack!! D'oh!!

Apple said...

Oh, yeah...Peeps heeb me out too!

Well I have several complaints and some bubble bursting to do.

#1- Love the spork, sporks are awesome. I mean really sometimes you just need a spoon and a fork rolled into one.

#2- I LLLLLOOOOVVEEE select a size paper towels. So much so that I had to drag out love. I have 6 folks using paper towels and them damn things are expensive so anytime I can cut costs I love it. Before this invention I had to break out the scissors to cut
p-towels in half sizes for my kids. You not liking them makes me think you are crazy or rich. LOL

#3- Peeps- You got me to agree on that. Hate em

Now for your exciting news about bundling your services with TWC. Oh yeah that's good times for now and even good times for the next 11 months. I enjoyed that as well. But just you newbies wait and see what happens to that TWC bill on month 12. You will shit yourselves. It freaking doubles!!!
Mine did. I mean I knew it was a limited time offer and I expected a bit of a increase but seriously..double!

:) Enjoy the game. You will be in my town.

I love the select-a-size. Sometimes you just don't need a whole sheet!

We've had Suddenlink (formerly Charter)bundled service for 6 years and we love it. It's much cheaper than the Dish or DirectV. We don't have the premium channels, but we do have the extended cable package and it has only increased in price slightly since we've had it.

And here I was going to ship you my 1000 packets of Ketchup that I collected. Damn! Another missed opportunity!

Disaster Chick said...

Sporks are okay. Really don't have an opinion on them. The seem to work good at Taco Bell.

I like Peeps. In 2001 Ihad a Ghost Peep this that had a Vanilla taste to it and I haven't found it since. I got it from an office I visited. Totally amazing.

I collect Micky D's Hot Mustard and Chick-Fil-A's Honey Mustard. I don't have 100 of them because you have to be a bit more stealthy to get them. However, I do have a bottle of Tabisco at both offices.

Our cable is Cox. I wish we actually had choices. In KS we are known to have wind and storms - concerned that the Dish won't work.

I'm going to the Chiefs game on Sunday. Starting to look like it is a once a year tradition starting two years in a row.

Good luck on staying healthy. I was able to get a free flu shot and took it last week.

I don't like Peeps. Marshmallows only belong in smores and rice krispie bars. And Count Chocula cereal.

Yes, I think you are the only one who doesn't like the select-a-size paper towels. Sometimes you need more than one, but you don't quite need two. Select-a-size lets you have a paper towel and a half! What's not to love???
