Use Your Blinkers!

Until the human race develops telepathy, I think a mechanical device which which helps us indicate which direction you intend to go with our car is a good thing (DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT, WOMAN WITH THE BIG HAIR IN THE BROWN, FORD ESCORT THIS MORNING AT THE INTERSECTION OUTSIDE MY NEIGHBORHOOD?!!!)

Sorry…I had to get that out of my system.

My Pants Fit

I completely support cultural freedom of expression, open fashion articulation and the unrestrained articulation of style.  That way I have fun stuff to blog about!!! 😀

Kids Need Play

After I recorded this, I read a cool article that reiterated the same idea, but included a cardboard box as another essential for excellent play.  Maybe you can think of other rudimentary toys that help our kids play well.

I Don’t Have Tattoos–What’s Wrong With Me?

I don’t have tattoos. Why not? You never see a Ferrari with a bumper sticker, do you? 😉

Oh, I’m absolutely not against tattoos.  I love all my tattooed friends.  I just can’t bring myself to do it.  “I’m going to get a tattoo” is kinda like saying, “I’m gonna go make a life statement.” WOW!

Even though I don’t have a tattoo, I gotta hand it to those who do–you made a GIANT decision! In this day, it’s good for people to make the big, important decisions. Perhaps the tattoo is only a 1-inch Care Bear on your ankle, but THAT’S HUGE!…because it will be there until you die or we all have flying cars (whichever comes first).

I’d like to hear what you think about tattoos as a thing. Go ahead…speak up! 🙂

Know-It-Alls

This is in response to a question by viewer, Tina.  Tina, I don’t know all the “know-it-alls” yet, but so far, I know enough.  I know that you know that everyone knows enough “know-it-alls” to know a few things about them.

If you know some things about “know-it-alls,” please share your knowledge! 😉

The Chaos of English Pronunciation

How did I ever learn to speak English?  How does ANYONE ever learn this language?  English does have rules of spelling and pronunciation–I don’t know them!  If you speak another language, you quickly understand that usually there is no reason for competitive contests like “Spelling Bees” to test students…because spelling and pronunciation are sensible ALREADY!

Enjoy my rendition of Gerard Nolst Trenité’s “The Chaos of English Pronunciation.”  Apparently this Dutchman wrote longer versions of this, but hey–this is long enough for me! 😀

Buying TV Stuff

“BUT WAIT!…ORDER NOW AND…”  Doesn’t that confuse you?  Which is it?  Wait or order now?

As long as the world has turned, there have been sales pitches.  It’s part of who we are.  I’m totally good with that.  That doesn’t mean that TV product “infomercials” and 1-800 ads aren’t a bit goofy.

So, have you ever bought anything from a TV advert?  I wanna hear your story!  What are your thoughts about TV ads?

The Perfect Cup for Coffee

Here it is!  After you’ve exhausted every avenue to make the nectar of the coffee bean as delectable as humanly possible and you’re planning on sitting for a spell to just bathe your taste buds in the stuff, here is how you want to do it.

  1. It holds a lot.
  2. It feels good in my hand.
  3. It keeps it hot.
  4. It’s stainless.
  5. It’s the most stable thing on my desk (or even AT my desk).

Nanny-nanny-boo-boo! My coffee cup is better than yours! :p
