Riding The Freak Train

That was a song I had going through my head this evening, as I strolled through Border’s with three of my kids waiting for the latest installment of Harry Potter.
I understand dressing up as your favorite character (although I don’t think I ever did that past age seven…can someone explain age fifty-something?). Borders had the worse crowds and system to purchase books, so bad where I went over to Wal-Mart and 15 minutes later, I had two copies of the book.
Going to bed, both girls can’t read the books yet, they already decided that chasing boys was more important than listening to mom and dad.


The Buffet Is Open!

Remember this picture? Now, there’s been a new addition to the menu.

BEIJING (Reuters) – Live rats are being trucked from central China, suffering a plague of a reported 2 billion rodents displaced by a flooded lake, to the south to end up in restaurant dishes, Chinese media reported.
Rats had been doing a roaring trade thanks to strong supply over the last two weeks, the China News Service quoted vendors as saying.
“Recently there have been a lot of rats… Guangzhou people are rich and like to eat exotic things, so business is very good,” it quoted a vendor as saying, referring to the capital of Guangdong province, where people are reputed to eat anything that moves.

God, I hope this isn’t the place where the “rat banquets” are taking place….
And remember, Guangdong province is a “rich” part of China

Society of Insane Chicks

Scott Adams has hit upon something that surely has to exist in today’s society….

Iowahawk has some handy tips. Numbers six and nine seem quite useful. 😉

Tonight of course was the release of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galazy and I and about 50 other guys (along with two women who looked like they were dragged along with their boyfriends) enjoyed the show.
Where did it miss….
Well, deleting hugely specific and comedic lines from the text, along with several scenes.
Where did it hit….
Pretty much everywhere else. Trillian was completely geekily hot and Alan Rickman was the perfect choice for Marvin.
Was it worth $7.50? Heck yes. Would I take the kids to it? Hell no.

The Scene:
Her: A thirty-something woman with a shopping cart walking out to the car.
Me: A scruffy thirty-something guy carrying out a space heater and two gallons of milk plus my car keys looking like he’s going to drop everything in about two seconds.
As I’m heading to the door I saw that I didn’t have my gloves on or my keys in hand, ready to unlock the van because it’s damn cold outside. So I decide to put my purchases down on a bench and start putting on my golves. When I’m finished and I start heading to the outer door, this woman walks by me and I let her go ahead (being the gentleman that I am) and start the trudge out to my car. She notices that I’m “following” her and pulls her purse closer and start walking at a speed that can only be described as “glacial”. About five seconds later, another slow down and a glare. This continues for approximately 200 feet, glaring and walking. Of course, I can’t walk around her due to traffic and if I did, it would be pointless since I would only get to my car at this point only five seconds sooner. So just before I reach my car, she suddenly spins around and yells “WHY THE HELL ARE YOU FOLLOWING ME!?!”.
As I hit the button to unlock the door of the van, with a smile on my face the entire time, I politely remind her this is a parking lot and that if anyone was going to mug her, I doubt it would be a guy carrying a space heater and two gallons of milk especially with lots of people in the Wal-Mart parking lot.
Some people just need to chill at this time of year….can’t imagine what she would have done if I bumped into her.

What a Bargain!

In other news, millions of American dig through their pocket change wondering aloud what the exchange rate for the Canadian Dollar is today. 😉

Bad Hair Day

Oh hell, just bad everything day for this woman…
