Is sudoku anything like seppuku? If it IS, then I highly encourage the vast majority of humanity to try it at least once. Don't put it off, either. Try it today. Invite a friend.
Birthday wishes to the delightful Keira Knightley this peaceful Sunday. I do believe I'll be watching Domino before Sleepytime today. Happy Birthday also to longtime fave James Caan, star of NBC's Las Vegas, which has sadly been relegated to the no man's land that is the Friday night TV schedule; soon to be cancelled, I'm sure. The last time I watched Las Vegas, I actually was in Las Vegas. I love telling that story. I think it fairly neatly summarizes my entire worldview.
Is George Steinbrenner still paying part of Drew Henson's salary? I certainly hope so. I was watching the former Michigan star playing some NFL Europe-type quarterback yesterday and I had to giggle at the thought of the Yankees funding his new career. Whatever. He does need the reps. Otherwise Terrell Owens will be merciless with him in the press this coming season.
So I was consulting my handy-dandy DIY guide to phrenology yesterday, wondering what these latest bumps on my noggin signify, and let's just say that the portents are kinda ominous.
As I was laying me down to sleep last night, with the room kinda spinning a smidge, I thought to myself, self (yep, I really do think like that), I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to go to sleep after suffering a sharp blow to the skull. Something about the resulting concussion ensuring that you never Wake Up again. Then I thought, Cool. Then the bad thoughts came and someone had her belated revenge on me: what exactly is the deal with all those Baby On Board signs on cars (she phrased it better, that happens a lot)? Do all those folks actually HAVE children in their cars and are afraid of being rear-ended or is it merely a trend-type thing? I'd never even noticed the proliferation of these signs before, but suddenly they were all I could 'think' about. Naturally, this kept me up most of the night. Sigh. I likely deserved it, though. I almost always do.
It was mighty charitable of everyone not to laugh TOO hard yesterday when I joked that the next group move would be everyone helping me finally move in with my delightful neighbor (her place is bigger than mine). Yeah, like that'll ever happen. Sometimes I really do say shit just to say it.
I don't blame you for being you but you can't blame me for hating it.
C for Country. As in I'm shipping out tomorrow, lay back and do it for your country, baby. That's always been one of my favorites. Sometimes old really does mean classic. Not in this case, of course, but sometimes.
Today is Nascar's Food City 500. Where exactly is this city of food located? Is it anywhere near Surf City? Do I need a passport and/or a green card? Can I apply for political asylum, perhaps?
I was watching the Los Angeles Lakers/Milwaukee Bucks game the other night and I saw oft-maligned Lakers' Center Kwame Brown reach WAY back to throw down a huge one-handed alleyoop dunk. I was impressed as all get out and I thought to myself, self, maybe he's finally getting it. But he's shown signs before and then gone out and put up a 2 points, 3 boards and 5 fouls night. I really hope that things are beginning to click for him and not just because I've added him in several of my NBA pools, either. I'm really not that selfish. Much.
thoughts wildly scrambling
crawling their way back to you
the same way I still kinda want to
the way you always said I'd do
but I guess it's just your right
to always be right
Like I said, I'm working on some things. Keeping some irons in the fire, so to speak. Again, purely rhetorical.
1) Anna Freud (continued the work of her pops, Sigmund, and became a pioneer in the psychoanalysis of children.)
2) Brimo (a goddess of Death. I believe I may have mentioned my fixation on Death a time or 50.)
3) Alison Krauss (on this one, I really do think it's best When You Say Nothing At All. I always liked that song, and that was really the best I could come up with today; did I mention that I suffered a sharp blow to the melon yesterday?)
4) Ria Sen (Indian supermodel and actress; I really should check out some of them Bollywood flicks sometime. again, early 90's Benetton ad is the Ultimate goal. except heavily leaning towards the fine.)
5) Michelle Hall (aka Michelle Von Flotow. hot B-movie actress, star of the classic Sexually Bewitched (I wonder what she twitches to work her magic in this one); Pleasureville; and Sin in the City, in which I believe Mr. Big actually has to prove it.)
It's almost time for Zoey 101, so I'm Audi 5000. Or something equally Valley-speak, I seem to have misplaced that particular dictionary of late. Likely when I was cleaning my fucking pad just in case like before spending time with K(A). I've misplaced all kinds of things as a result of that particular gaffe. Enjoy your Sunday, I'll be back later.
