Random Thoughts

I am in a play on Friday. I don't know any of the lines or cues. I can't seem to get motivated to learn this thing.

I woke up this morning and saw the Christmas lights were still on. It was clear Jr did almost everything he needed to do yesterday, and then forgot to hook up the little photo sensor timer. No big deal, I hooked it up before I left the house, then made sure to chew on the little boy about his "half assedness." I let him know that even though he failed to complete, again, I had the timer on and the lights will come on by themselves at dark and stay on til around midnight.

Tonight I drove up to the house in total darkness. When I checked the timer I realized I had accidentally turned the setting to "off." I hate it when that happens and your kid gets to taunt you about YOUR half assedness.

I found out today that nearly half of all high school seniors in my home county drink alcohol. And out of that group, nearly all of them (85%) report having had their last drink in a car. This is very bad. Shocking, alarming... it scares the crap out of me because my daughter will be a Senior next year, she is driving and she drives with my son. And in case you didn't do the math in your head... if nearly half of all Seniors are drinking and driving then it is only a matter of when (not if) a tragedy will take one of these kids. You are damn right I am scared.

ABC announced tonight that there are only two more episodes left of Boston Legal. Then Google News reports that William Shatner (77) already has a new job as a talk show host. Denny Crane!

Adam Avitable has not named me the winner of his Buffy the Vampire Slayer DVD set yet. I thought the competition was over Sunday... but here I sit with my hands in my lap, eagerly awaiting some Willow Lesbian TV fare... HELLOOOO! What could be MORE deserving to win than that??

I really want to go on a rant about how not only Bush policies, but the MSM as a whole has failed this nation and the world. The news is now reporting the recession that the fear mongering "Liberals" were screaming about months ago, really did officially start a year ago. Now we are in the longest recession since 1982.. and moving in on the record that started back in October 1929.

I want to rant about how Fox double talk, (called News Entertainment) has excused and covered an inept if not outright corrupt administration. I want to demand justice. I want Foreign owned news organizations made illegal, I want sanctions and regulation on broadcasters... I want a country I can believe in once more. I have said it over and over... I want the same accountability you would expect from the commissioner of any major sports league. You know there is an old saying that goes: "If wishes were horses then beggers would ride... and if bullshit were biscuits we'd eat til we died." Unfortunately, this old proverb nearly came true.

I wish I was more organized and knew how to assemble these randoms thoughts into one smooth blog entry. Fat chance, huh?

I, for one, don't mind random thoughts.

We should stay up drinking all night and have to take a shot every time one of us says something random. Did you know that guy who played Marcus Welby was completely blind the final year of his series? He played his character sighted and had his scripts read to him each day.


Was his name Robert Taylor?

NO LONGER RANDOM!! Don't Take a Drink!!

You know, Robert Taylor was the best dentist I ever had...


You get the idea. At my age, it's one of the few ways I can still claim "to go all night long baby!" Naturally, that too would be a lie... but more believable than if it was said in any other context.

I don't want to hear about your hands in your lap, you dirty old man.

My parents beat the "no driving and drinking" thing into my head so severely that I wouldn't ride with anyone who had even one drink.

So get to beating!
