Wow the excitement of me posting again must have been too much for than man who was not as macho as Lloyd Bridges and the man who could not escape mutant bubbles.

So for Mr. McGoohan I will go down to Old World in Huntington Beach and yell, ” I am not a number. . .I am A FREE MAN!.

As for Mr. Montalban I am going to pour out some malt liquor on a height challenged person, who is wrapped up in some fine Corinthian leather.

It looks like there is a problem with the new Atlanta Aquarium.

I think the first thing they need to do in not fill the tanks with Coke.


Ratcheting up the Catch up.

December 27, 2006

Hello everyone. I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. I did, but I must have been bad this year since Baby Jebus left me a cold for Boxing Day. Maybe he is still pissed about acing him out on the movie rights.

Well I am here slaving at the old hospital. I was here yesterday, but I sadly yesterday I think I obtained a black belt in slacking because I got nothing done, not even blogging.

I hope everyone had a good holiday haul, I had a good one. Got a messenger bag to replace my ESPN the Magazine bag with a huge hole in it. Nothing says professionalism than a dingy, ripped-up bag. Got the DVD of the History of the Denver Broncos, it’s only two DVD’s, it will just have to do. Got some gift cards for Sirius, Costco and the most delicious of gifts, Wahoo’s. We also got a battery charger for the car and a VHS to DVD player, but we may take that back and look for something else. We know that there is something out there that saves VHS to the PC.

So what else is going on.

Sadly, the Hardest Working Man in Show Business has gone to that great stage in the sky. You will be missed James. I can not give this man a proper send up. I will leave it to this man to.

Today we lost Gerald Ford. A man who held two distinct presidential titles of note. One was he passed Reagan as the oldest living president. And he was the only non-elected president. If he could of lasted a little longer he could have punked Hoover for longest post-presidential life. Also a better football player than Eisenhower, Nixon and Reagen put together. He had the most upside of any president since William Howard Taft, who would have been a great 3-4 nose tackle, only if they had an NFL draft. The man seemed like a nice guy. He had a tough gig. Having to come in and clean up Nixon’s mess and you were not elected. Was he perfect? No, but he was likeable and he did make the 76 election close. He was the last surviving member to Warren Commission. So this will mean the JFK nuts will say Ford was silenced to keep him from spilling the beans. Speaking of bumping off Presidents, can we make sure about the whereabouts of Squeaky Fromme when Mr. Ford passed. Hey she tried once before.

But I will always think of the Former President in most proper of ways. I will think of his “appearance” on the Simpsons. The Episode was “Two Bad Neighbors”
Gerry: Hi! Pleased to meet you, I just moved in. My name is Gerry Ford.
Homer: [gasps] Former President Gerald Ford? Put her there! I’m Homer Simpson!
Gerry: Say, Homer, do you like football?Homer: Do I ever!Gerry: Do you like nachos?
Homer: Yes, Mr. Ford.
Gerry: Well, why don’t you come over and watch the game, and we’ll have nachos? And then, some beer.
Homer: Ooh! [they walk across the street] Gerry, I think you and I are going to get along just –[they both trip]
Both: D’oh!
Also I will think of this picture:
Billy Preston you had the fro working!
His will not be as lavish of a state funeral like the Reagan funeralpoluza. I am not saying that Reagan did not deserve a big state funeral. The man served two terms and was larger than life, and I respect his place in history. But back to my point, to me it seemed that there were some who made it more about themselves than Reagan himself. Yes, I am talking to you Nancy, W, The Fox Network and anyone else I forgot to mention. The only funeral that topped that for show was Carrol Rosenbloom’s funeral. I am scared to think what it will be like when either of the Bush family pass on, and that is only after a long, long life. Will we even still be able to have state funerals at that point, maybe the Chinese or whomever owns this country in 20 or 30 years. I just have visions of a cross between Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen, the Passion of the Christ, and Hewhaw. Hey, I hope I am wrong.
Wow I had a lot of Presidential in me today. Let’s see what else is on my mind.
I know they are not as cuddly as they are portrayed on the Coke commercials, but someone has to help out the Polar Bears. I feel the administration is just going to pay lip service to this. Again I hope to be proven wrong, if not by this group of morons running the show and to how come next. I can almost here W saying we are “winning the war in the Arctic”. Thankfully Rumsfeld is not around to say that the “Polar Bears are in the last throws”. Because on that issue Rummy might have been right.
What the guy’s problem, it could have been worse, he could have been stuck with Mongo.
Mongo, like you I am too just a pawn in game of life.
Who has not had this thought run through their heads. Hey I thought about this morning.
Mr. President you can hide in your tree house for so long. You need to wake the F up, and start working on getting troops out, and not into Iraq. You also have to swallow to stupid pride and talk to regional powers. Because you have screwed this up for too long, for once be an adult and do the right thing. Oh you probably won’t do that, since you and your horde did this to the New York Times (Thanks to You Should Have Asked Me).
I love sports movies as much as the next sports nut, but did we need a movie on either of these guys. What’s next, the Buddy Biancalana Story.
Okay I have done enough damage for one day. Good night all and a Happy Kwanzaa.

This Just In

November 21, 2006

Decency and good taste may still be alive in America.

Why, how, who?

O.J. “Special” canceled.

I never thought I would see the day that even FOX/ News Corp. would say that one of its projects was “ill-considered”.

But you know it must be really bad, if I agree with Bill O’ Reilly on something, and to quote Vincent Vega, “that’s a bold statement”.

Now the rumor going about is that before this decision came down, a group of FOX and News Corp. executives had been rushed to area hospitals, for complaints of pain. Thankfully after meeting with medical authorities, it was discovered that the pain was coming from something called a conscience. But a spokesperson for both FOX and News Corp. said that they are looking into a safe ways of removing it.


Catchung up from the Weekend.

October 17, 2006

I had something for you yesterday, but this time by computer went nuts and lost it, kinda like Dennis Green. Man the man upstairs must really hate the Cardinals.

But let’s see how I did on that check list:

Watched baseball – Half Check – Not as much as I thought. I only caught Friday night game.I didn’t try to watch the A’s get their hearts stepped on. As much as I try I can’t get into the Mets/Cardinals.

Got tasty treats – Check – On Friday night we went to an open house/ customer survey for a small but kick ass bakery. (Blackmarket Bakery)

Watched College Football – Check – Got in a couple of hours of college gridiron watching.

Go to a Wedding – Check – It was a funky wedding. We love the people who got hitched, but there were some guest there who were trying way to hard to be cool. Yeah I talking to you Steve O look alike in the suit with the white belt and shoes, who the hell do you think you are an edgy Herb Tarlick? That tops the Beck-look-alike and the guy with the fro’. There were too many emo’s for my taste. But it was a pretty outdoor ceremony that was cold, well cold for Southern Californians. In fact I had to get the blanket from the car so we did not freeze at dinner. Also one last note, the toast for groom is not the best time to bring up any issue he may have had with inconstancy, just a thought. But it was fun and they served some nice Belgian Framboise. It like having beer and punch, but not disgusting.

Chat with out adorable stalker – No Check – He had other things going on, like a couple of serious naps.

Crank call Billy Squire – Check – Done and done. Next up Peter Cetera.

Accept Nobel for my new theory on William Henry Harrison – No Check – I am waiting you herring breathed bastards!

Making Diorama of the last episode of Barney Miller, out of butter – No Check – It started off well, but ended up more looking like spin off series Fish did.

Watch Pro Football – Check – Some of my viewing was interrupted by social engagements, but at both I was able to watch some and at the same time enjoy some wonderful company. In the morning, we met with some of my wife high school friends at Chevy’s, which in the man opinion sucks ass. Just eat the chips folks. In the evening, we meet up with member of my family. And it is always good to catch up with them.

Win the World Series of Ken0 – No Check – Oh man I was so tantalizingly close. I had the title in my hands when one small problem arose that cost me the glory. There is no World Series of Keno. I wished someone had told me.

Relax with my wonderful wife – Check and double check – Now we have to get geared up for next weekend when we take my mom up to Hearst Castle for her 70th.

So all in all I will chalk this weekend up as a success.


It finally hit me.

Tacos.

That it has always been Tacos.

I should have know that.

I always knew that William Henry Harrison was killed by a plate of tacos from the future and not pneunomia.
