Its Eighties Monday!

Today I give you one of the greatest shows, musical scores, and fashion themes of the eighties.  Few television programs had the impact that this show and Don Johnson's famous stubble had.  I will even admit to dressing in a teal shirt and white jacket for one of my class pictures.  Oh the humanity...

Umm.

I've got frost on my windshield. Isn't it a bit early for that?

News flash

The trees in Berlin, Ohio look just like the trees where you live. No really, they do. I know its it's astonishing but it's true.

Friday Night Football

I grew up at a school that didn't have football, pretty much because everyone would rather drink in a Friday night but that's neither here nor there. Regardless, now as an adult, I think our choice was the right one.  Sitting here listening to all these parents complain about the officials, the coach, the weather, etc...  There has to be a better way. Maybe all high school games should be close captioned to local hangouts, I'm sure there are a couple of bars that would love a little extra business. Plus that way I wouldn't have to pony up $6.00 for every person in my family.

Sadly

I find myself to be addicted to Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader on Facebook lately.  Thankfully I can say that in general I am.  I can't wait to add that to my skillset on my resume.  At least I got away from that crack they call Farmville.

And really?  A movie based on Farmville?  Proof that its crack as far as I'm concerned.

A day in the rain

That's about all it was as three of my jobs today ended up cancelling. When you rent a space, why do you go off half cocked as if you own it without getting permission of the actual owner?  Ugh.

I wonder what would have happened to David Hasselhoff if the internet had existed in the 80's?




Probably the exact same thing as what has actually happened.

In deference to 10/8/11

Sincerely, Arthur Dent.

How do you know you live in the country?

Two words. Tractor parade.

And yes, those people are lined up to watch it.

Some days...

So here I sit watching my trainee do my job, which is completely awesome. Everyone should have a trainee sometime in their life. There's nothing like molding someone to completely fail at a later point in their life. Not that I'm doing that of course, that would be unethical, but loads of fun in the process.

There needs something to be said about the expectations of customers. I understand that I'm going to be doing work outside your house for a few hours today but don't let the first words out of your mouth be "don't do....blah blah blah" because that's generally what I hear at that point. If you want to guarantee that a service person doesn't care about the job, feel free to say it though. It makes my day go faster.

Razor Ramon!

Who didn't love the WWF in the early 90's? This was exceptionally bad television, not even rising to the level of daytime soap opera. Yikes. But we ate it up didn't we?

Have we given up here?

Heck no! Real life type stuff has crept up s'all. What with travelling to nonsensical New Kids on the Block concerts and staying overnight at the Inn and looking forward to a genuine vacation that I'm not getting paid for, its all suddenly busy again. Not to worry kids, things are progressing though. I've even begun to take to this whole twittering phenomenon, but more in looking at how I can bring more revenue to my overlords than myself. Doesn't hurt though....

Follow me, you know you want to. Its like that pied piper thing...

American Idol

Would someone please let this show die? Ugh. When it comes to reality shows I've got to say, I'm a fan. Really, it's not much of a secret. I've got a saying, "Your pain is my entertainment.". It's especially evident on Survivor, but that's another subject entirely.

American Idol just hurts most times and there's so few people to really get behind. But it's a ratings powerhouse and isn't going anywhere anytime soon. So what's a sensible guy to do?Here's a few suggestions.

1. Donate $1.00 to charity anytime Randy Jackson says the word "dog" whether he's actually talking about an actual dog or not. Paula not included though.

2. Write a two page report explaining why the various celebrity performers are showing up on the Wednesday show. Really, I can rationalize Kelly Clarkson being on, even though she kind of swore off of it a few years back, but Kanye West??? Huh?

3. Plan names for your future children. Come on, you know you want to use Anoop someday, right?

4. There's always at least a 73% chance that Paula is going to say or do something idiotic. Sometimes it's worth taking the shot.

5. Look for a commercial with Summer Glau or Eliza Dushku. Worth every moment invested. Believe me.

6. Write a blog post.
