Only It’s Not Coffee


That's Good Drinkin'!

That mug you see is not filled with coffee as the quote from The Big Lebowski might imply. In fact I’m not sure it was ever used for coffee since my drink of choice at my last job was green tea with jasmine, one packet of artificial sweetener and a squeeze of honey added to kill any semblance of tea (and dignity) it might have had.

And I really wouldn’t consider any coffee I concoct to still be coffee for the same reason as the tea: the additives, only twice as many.

In either case, the current contents of the mug are not meant to give me pleasure but instead provide relief. It is filled with warm TheraFlu Nighttime Formula as I have been fighting off a cold for the last few days with today being the worst yet. While I was able to completely clean then den and then go to work yesterday, the only thing I did today was go grocery shopping at WinCo in the morning and it wiped me out. After lunch, I donned my pajamas and robe and have been roaming the house in sickly comfort. The family, as a result, has been avoiding me and I can’t really blame them.

Being sick sucks. I want to run, go for a 20-mile bike ride, anything to break a sweat. Instead I sit and do nothing. Blah.

So I just thought I’d post since they are so infrequent. My Facebook Vacation also continues but there’s more to it. It’s just not working for me with any browser and I can’t upload pictures from my devices via WiFi. I don’t know what’s going on but I don’t really miss it either. It’s an incredible time-waster.

I think that TheraFlu is starting to kick in. Goodnight.

Grammy Wrap-Up

The Grammys were last night and well…oh, who the fuck am I kidding? I didn’t bother watching much. What I did see was a bunch of people I’d never even heard of and one of the most over-hyped bands of all-time: Radiohead, who pulled Fleetwood Mac and played with the USC marching band. Call me weird but I don’t get the attraction. I really don’t.

Who (or what) is an Adele?

And is it me, or is Robert Plant looking more and more (an older version of) like Jeff Lebowski with each passing day?

The Dude Abides

It’s always fun watching a TV show or movie and recognizing something that pays homage to someone or somebody.

That was the case tonight when we were watching a program called Scary Godmother: The Revenge of Jimmy with Anthony. I had no idea what it was but since it was Hallowe’en themed, we figured we’d get in the spirit of things.

For the most part, it was just meh. You know, typical kid stuff that the average adult wouldn’t find too entertaining. That was until I noticed something in the dance sequence.

So wait for this clip to load, skip to :45 and watch until :50.

No, I’m not talking about those Thriller moves that they are doing; I’m talking about the wolf dancing down those steps! Now where had I seen those before?

Peep this clip and skip to 1:00 and watch until 1:05:
