…she’s lost her sparkle, you know she isn’t the same.
We miss you, Jerry.
Assorted Random Stuff
Just got back from taking a 2 mile walk at a pretty brisk pace. Had to get my excercise and walk off the bigass salad I had for dinner. By damn, in a few months I’ll be so healthy Hell won’t have me:) I’m going to see my podiatrist on Tuesday and while I’m there, I’ll weigh myself to see if I’ve lost any weight.
I see that ABC, NBC and CBS are all going to have alien invasion sci-fi series on this fall. They are titled “Invasion”, “Surface” and “Threshold”, respectively. Not alot being said about them yet, but I predict about a 90% chance that they won’t last a full season.
CBS also has an updated remake of “Night Stalker” planned. The only hope I see for it is if the X Files junkies really take it to their bosom. Even then, I predict a short run.
Still have not read the new Harry Potter book. Grace and I patiently await the call from the local library.
Why is it that the people most likely to believe in “Intelligent Design” are not only the least intelligent people, but also the ones who best prove that evolution can work in reverse?
Despite the fact that I still miss Roscoe very much, I have started thinking about getting a new pet to share the house with Grace and I. It’s not easy to come up with one. Not a dog, of course…we are still some time away from that. Cats are out due to my allergy to them and my deep dislike of catboxes. The squeaking of guinea pigs is more than Grace can handle. Hamsters are foul tempered little fuckers much of the time. Mice never appealed to me. I like parrots and other psittacine birds, but anything more than a budgie or cockatiel would be to expensive while we are in our Adventure In Poverty. All the various exotic animals (hedgehogs, skunks, ferrets, flying squirrels, etc) are illegal here in California. So far it looks like a rat, budgie or cockatiel are our only choices.
I picked about 6 billion tomatillos the other day and tomorrow night I’m gonna crank out a mess of salsa. Salsa is actually pretty healthy stuff, being all vegetables. The chips might be a bit tricky unless I can find them unsalted. Still, even if I have to eat it on toast, I’m gonna have me some salsa!
Grace and I have been watching a series about beekeeping on the RFDTV channel on Dish Network. It’s pretty interesting stuff and has me thinking that once we make the move to the farm, I might try keeping a hive or two.
Time for bed for me. More blog-alog-a-ding-dong later.
