Merry Christmas bitches

Since we're becoming the crazy cat/dog ladies, I felt I should post "Christmas with Bob." Bob is gone now, but he always loved a well lit tree.

Merry Christmas to my bitches! And a Happy New Year!

Flipper, Merlin, and Satan

I really don't want to be the one who keeps posting here, but I just ran across some of the most facinating trivia and I thought I would share it with all of you.

First of all did you know that the original dolphin Mitzie who played "flipper" in the movie got paid $1 per day? I find it really interesting that they paid HER since there was no internet and she couldn't exactly walk into a grocery store and buy some...I don't This is particularly interesting as I think the fisherman owner of Mitzie was also paid. This bring up a question I have...can a dolphin have a bank account? Why a dollar a day? And what would a dolphin shop for if she were able to? I'm going with a shark gun on that last one.

Second of all, I found another Medieval Musical: "Merlin" oh yes, 1983 at it's finest. It includes a black panther that gets turned into a girl and a fabulous song "Satan Rules". So now we have a choice for medieval congress: "Dragons the Musical" or "Merlin the Musical". I wonder if we could perform both? I really wish you all could see the BeeGee'sesque Merlin on the cover of the book! It's precious. Simply precious.

Better the Crazy You Know, Than the Crazy You Don't

Okay, it's finally getting to me. If I hadn't had to ride home sitting next to the guy who smelled supiciously of skunk or just WAY too much coffee I probably wouldn't be complaining, but I did and so I am. So I got to the elevator this morning and I pressed the button to no avail. This guy shouts from the other elevator "hey, here's one!" and I thought "how nice." Well, it turned out the good samaritan was CRAZY. Yes, he's off to the law library to print something out and then he's going to disbar some laywers and let me tell you, he was way too emphatic about it to be sane! Oh! How I miss the days of Bruce White "hi...this is... Bruce White...Can you..uh...tell me if...uh..Baking Soda Frog Man has been..uh...cataloged yet?" And then he'd call back every 2 hours for the next 3 days asking the same damn question!! The man sounded like he'd had a stroke, but it's just the LSD overdose. Did I mention he was allergic to the sun and never left the house? Now I'm in a city full of them. They lurk around outside and they see me coming. Oh yeah. I must look like a nice person or something. I try not to make eye contact. I hold my breath so I don't have to smell the b.o. or the urine, but they talk to me anyway. Can't avoid it. Light rail passes are a buck fifty. Hang outside Starbucks long enough and you'll get ten times that. Man. I'm just dreading going home tonight!

Vending Machine Madness

So blame in on the cold, blame it on the lactose intolerance, blame it on whatever you like, but I just finished counting all the chip selections in our vending machine at work.

Did you know, out of 15 chip selections 10 of them were cheese? Is there a problem with this country? 10 out of 15 are cheese. There isn't even a plain potato chip in the bunch. There's the jalapeno chip, the barbeque chip, the sour cream and chive, the sun chip, and the steak chip. Is there a reason we need 3 slots for Doritos? 2 for cheezits? A chili cheese fito? And so on and so on? What the bleep? What's with the cheese man! It's not even good cheese! Okay, I'm a professed cheese snob and I don't actually eat chips, but if I did I'd be hard pressed to find one in that vending machine I wanted! Fortunately the ratio of nonchocolate to chocolate in the vending machine is 4 to 6 which is more than fair considering all the bleeping cheese!!! I didn't say it was very good, the candy, it was just not all chocolate which is a good thing. Like I'm going to eat some stale old chocolate when the sour jolly ranchers are all smushy and melted together. Can you imagine the state of the chocolate? Not good. Not good at all and I'm not very fond of chocolate either so I pretty much avoid it at all cost (unless it's German, or dark chocolate, or has some hope of being good!).

I feel better now. Thank you all for being there in my time of outrage.
Cheese Out.
