Simply Irresistable

I have never completely understood what Robert Palmer meant by "She's so fine, there's no tellin' where the money went".

For some reason I have had this dialogue stuck in my head all day. It's from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.

"Yeah.. our oldest boy's preparing for his career"

"ahhh college!?"

"no, the Carnival. Last year he was spreadin' pixie dust on the til-ti-whirl. Hopefully this year he'll be guessin' peoples' weight or barking for the yak lady. You ever seen her? Ugly as sin, but one hell of a good cook."

My word for the day


There's nothing like using an archaic, dead english word in everyday conversation.

10 Reasons Bucky is cooler than Dr. Metal

Since Dr. Metal (pictured right) is practicing his conspicuous-by-absence routine I've come up with the following to fish him out. He can either not comment, therefore letting me get away with a barrage of insults, or comment therefore letting me get him to respond when he is specifically trying not to. Either way I win. I feel good already. Especially if I get away with the insults..

10 Reasons Bucky is Cooler than Dr. Metal.

1) I don't live with a bunch of teenagers I am not related to.

2) I am not losing my hair.

3) I did not finish my PhD because I never started on it.

4) I would not have passed on the opportunity to have wild drunk sex with a wild drunk German chick who specifically stated that she likes to "drink and fuck!"

5) I do not like Gamma Ray, Amorphis, or Incubus.

6) I can fish.

7) I do not play squash.

8) I do not have the uncontrollable urge to look at my watch every 30 seconds when I wear a watch.

9) When I lose a wager I pay up (usually).

10) I wouldn't hang out with a person like Bucky.

Shit and Shinola

Yesterday someone had the unfortunate luck of saying to me that I did not know "shit from Shinola". My retort went something like this:

"Actually shit is a term derived from the old Norse 'skita'. It is commonly used to refer to feces which is a brownish by-product of digestion consisting of 75% bacteria and 25% water. Shinola, on the other hand had little to do with feces. It is a brand of U.S. shoe polish patented in the 1920's with a full line of high quality polishes, conditioners, and dressings. Shinola was also the sponsor of the highly popular radio show The Lincoln Highway."

Without this blog and the wealth of 'seemingly' useless information on the web I would not be armed with such gems. Thanks, Al Gore, for inventing the internet (sarcasm, of course).
