Well, I have a day schedule today. So an early early post.
I have discovered that tuna is not the only "secret woid" for Solange. I found a can of moist food I hadn't opened yet. Since she loved the tuna, I thought the seafood flavored moist would work, too. And it sure did - she wolfed it down and looked at me like where's-the-rest-you-big-fool. So I dispensed the wet food a bit at a time, making the can last over a couple days.
Saturday was the Employee Breakfast, for which I managed to get 3 1/2 hours of sleep before my appearance. We were told to be there at 7am sharp, and it got served at 7:40. Ah well.
It turned out to be very quiet that morning, so I got clearance to leave early. I came home and rested, then watched a bunch more episodes of Soap.
Sunday was quiet, also. After work, I headed over to a local store to finish my Christmas shopping. Since the store happened to be near where I used to live, I went to the Souplantation for dinner. I hadn't been there in a long time, so I got to have all my old favorites. I had picked up a couple books, so I ate and read...and before I knew it, two-hours-plus had passed.
So I went home, watched more Soap, and did more reading.
Over the weekend, one of my favorite actresses was arrested on an outstanding drunk driving warrant.
As previously mentioned, I've met this young lady...and while it's not a huge surprise to me that she drinks, I am surprised she didn't deal with the warrant earlier. I hope this turns into a wake-up call about such things, not to mention drinking and driving.
She seems to have far more smarts that Britney or Lindsay or any of their ilk.
From Hud's blog comes a link to these really bad translations.
Keep going till you reach the OB-GYN signs, read the departments...and tell me they aren't at least being truthful.
I always knew there was a reason why some people just shouldn't do karaoke.
I've been watching a lot of Soap lately. I do that, sometimes - pick out a TV show on DVD and watch every episode in a row.
Well, there was a great line that I simply have to share. Jodie Dallas (played by Billy Crystal), an openly gay man (played, if you'll allow the conceit, absolutely straight - he cross-dressed only once, wasn't "flaming" or any other stereotypes), is caring for his infant daughter (no, I'm not explaining all of it - go buy the discs). Anyway, he's visited by a drone from Child Welfare - it seems someone in Jodie's building has complained about the baby. Anyway, there's a wonderful bit of dialog that goes thusly - and remember, this was heavy-duty stuff for 1978-79:
CHILD WELFARE YUTZ: Are you a practicing homosexual?
Go buy the discs...at least the first season. In the eighth episode, Jodie's brother Danny (who has been in denial of Jodie's homosexuality) is forced to accept it...and it's a wonderful scene where Jodie gets all the "straight" lines (sorry).
As for today's title...since there are five main "items" today, and since I listen to a lot of silly songs - especially at Christmas-time - let's go to the video!
Okay. There will be a post tomorrow.
As for now...be seeing you.
