Well, Thank You For Profiting On My Childhood!



"Fight racism" or "Right fascism", you decide...

Ooh, a political opening today! Edgy! Maybe now someone will make a "Che" t-shirt rip-off using my face... 



Think of it! I'll be a legend! And Benicio will play me in the 3.5 hour biopic!

Greetings from the stunningly happenin' city of Albuquerque NM! We ate at another of the places Wifey wanted to eat at, called the Standard Diner - as seen on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on Food Network! You know, with that tubby white guy with the bleach-blond crew cut. Wifey loved it, the rest of us were all "meh." 

That Thing You Do is an annoying movie, even in HD. Except for the Captain Skeech and the Shrimp Shack Shooters guy... that guy is funny.

Anagram of the Day: Ultimate --> Mutilate

The general consensus among my family is that we are ready to leave. There's some weird dynamics going on between wifey and her siblings. For some reason, there's an inordinate amount of friction that always bubbles up, which I find to be unexplainable. I get along fine with everyone - but perhaps that's just because I'm oblivious. 

We still have a few more days. Mother-In-Law wants to hit up a couple Indian casinos while we're here. Could be fun, I guess. I could do the religious thing and say "no" to gambling, as though it is evil, or I could float around playing quarter slots like everyone else, and just chill. Whatever will make Mother-In-Law happiest is what I'll end up doing, of course. She's so generous, it's the least I can do.  If dropping quarters into a machine will help her enjoy our visit out here, I'll gladly let 'em drop.

Todayve In History: May 21
-------------------------------
- May 21, 1881: The American Red Cross is established by Clara Barton. (Free band-aids for everyone!!!)

- May 21, 1917: The Great Atlanta Fire takes place. (And I thought it was just Detroit that burned their city down to celebrate a World Series victory...)

- May 21, 1927: Charles Lindbergh touches down in Paris, becoming the first to fly solo nonstop across the Atlantic. (He'd have gone farther, but he needed to take a leak.)

- May 21, 1966: The UVF declares war on the IRA in Northern Ireland. (Let the Troubles begin!)

May 21 is also the birthday of the following bizarre collection of people: Al Franken, Mr. T, Jeffery Dahmer and the Notorious BIG. I know there's a common thread, I just haven't figured it out yet...

Funny Picture Time:


True, true...

Going to try and see the new Star Trek flick on Friday afternoon. I plan on waiting for a quiet moment in the film, and then blowing a loud, fake fart on my right bicep, just to make myself giggle like a school boy. In fact, I may do it several times, until an usher comes to escort me from the theater, as I get pelted with popcorn and flat soda. Then I'll pretend to be deeply offended, start screaming about how my rights are being violated, and have to be forcably restrained until the police arrive. Hopefully, I can squeeze in a nice "don't taze me bro!" or two. 

Man, the things I do to make this blog interesting! Sheesh! That night, my post will read, "I threw down my enemy and smote his ruin upon the mountainside... darkness took me, and I strayed out of thought and time..."

And you'll all hang on my every word! MUAHAHAHA!!!!! 

It's been too long since I posted a clip of a lip-synching kid, so here's a 3 year old working a country song...



You don't have to watch the whole thing, but that's not bad for such a little tyke. He rocked the guitar, too. Here's the direct link if the video isn't showing for you...

I think I'm going to end today's nonsense here. If I get the chance, and I can think of any further hot air to add, I'll hop on later.

Until then, remember, I know everything there is to know about the greatest game ever invented.

I'd like to dedicate this point to my mother, the academy, God and my butler.
