Things & Stuff
C Is For Cookie

While I was at work yesterday, I got into a conversation with the two women who were also on-shift. The topic, for some reason, turned to nicknames. Both ladies are in the range of 5'2 to 5'5, by the way.
Anyway, Laura said she used to be called "shorty" and "short stuff" by a guy she used to date. I mentioned that, back on "Happy Days", Fonzie's constant nickname for Joanie was "shortcake".
Blank stares. Then Jenny said, "What's 'Happy Days'?"
These twenty-somethings had never heard of the show. They had never heard of Fonzie, Potsie, or even Richie - although when I said he was "played by Ron Howard, the movie director", they both nodded in recognition.
"Happy Days" was as popular as "Seinfeld" or "Friends", back in the day.
Gad, I'm old.
I loved their big soft chocolate chip cookies, even though I haven't had them for awhile. Both cited the Circus Animal cookies as favorites, but I can't recall having them. I was more of a Chips Ahoy! and Vienna Fingers guy.
Well, there's still Keebler and Nabisco.
Another Old Guy item: I remember when Schoolhouse Rock! was sponsored by Nabisco, with the slogan "you'll find quality in our corner". Anybody else?
And another Old Guy moment:
This is for all the young bucks who have no idea what today's title is about.
Louis Farrakhan has declared Barack Obama to be the Messiah.
It took him long enough - the MSM has been saying that for weeks.
Since I worked yesterday, today is get-shit-done day...and I have LOTS to do.
Be seeing you.
