It hit me this morning after reading someone's blog post from yesterday about Dump, pissed off about his cancelled NJ trip. I mean, I can see Dump liking golf... he can walk around as slow as he wants and it's a very stereotypical "rich guy" thing to do. But it hit me--I think every president … Continue reading Absurd Q #140: Are people REQUIRED to play golf when they become president?
I just spent nearly two hours cutting up what was left of my dry fruit and mixing it with bird seed for the parrot. I'm sure I didn't have to go all out like that, but for some reason, I guess the sound of the seeds swirling around (and the nutcracker crunching on the harder … Continue reading Focusing on the wrong (or odd) things…
I am one of the dozen people with HBO that hasn't seen a SINGLE episode of Game of Thrones. And yet, that's all everybody's talking about. Never saw an episode, though I saw the Honest Trailer for the series (lotsa mentions of boobies, dragons, and swords, but that's it). I'm a big believer in reading … Continue reading #094 Blitz Q: I’ve never seen Game of Thrones. Would you recommend the books, TV Series, or Both?
Ah, Bugs, my fave composer...hee hee (gif from Looney Tunes & Gfycat.com) I am a film-score and soundtrack nut. Easily 25% of my CD collection (yes, I still have all mine and keep burning more) is comprised of soundtracks and film scores. That number stretches to 50% if I include classical music and the film … Continue reading Top 5 Soundtracks and/or Film Scores so good you can (almost) ignore the damn movie.
This is one of the big beefs about the "holiday candy" thing that I can't get around. Don't get me wrong, the Tootsie Roll is a wonderful candy to gnaw on or to just let your saliva do the work and suck on it to make it last longer. It's got just enough chocolate flavor … Continue reading #080–Blitz Q: Why are the not-chocolate Tootsie Rolls NOT available widely year-round?!
It's one of those basic things I've read about so often when it comes to editing and/or before submitting your stuff. I've lost count the numbers of sites telling you to get your family reading what you have. Get them reading your work, because you'll get some useful criticism from people who care for you, … Continue reading Why I Probably Won’t Let My Family Read My Works, Now or Ever Again…
And I don't mean movies about illness. I'm talking about those movies that are actually pretty good to watch when you're sick and can't move around much, and just want it on for noise or distraction. Since I suddenly got a bad cold or something about 24 hours ago and am half out of my … Continue reading My Top 5 “Flu Movies”
I've lived in Texas my whole life. Our so-called "state snack" is tortilla chips and salsa, which makes sense, I guess. You can't throw a rock in a town without hitting either a church or a good family owned Tex-Mex restaurant. It's a party staple and sleep-over go-to.
