Zombies! (They're Coming To Get Us)

I think the zombies are already here. It's a metaphor for modern man, right? Isn't that what the zombie movies are really telling us? It's not that they're horror movies, they're social commentary. They're political critique. Existential ruminations about the loss of self. About the sameness,about powerlessness, about carelessness. The undead aren't coming to actually eat our brains. Our brains are being eaten by modern distractions (read b.s.). We have to take our metaphorical shotguns and torches and fend them off! Forget about "montée hors de la merde." Fight the zombies!

If I could eat nothing but ___ for a year

I think I could live for a year on Scottish food. Really.

I Had Some Ideas...

No, really, i had a great idea. Some interesting things actually happened, I was going to blog about actual stuff (Not packages left on doorsteps, not sushi) But......I'm going to bed instead.

G'night!

Plinky? I Prefer Plinko!

So, I occasionally have bloggers block. I figured I'd give Plinky a try. Blech! It's like school. An assignment or a questionnaire or something. You call that a blog prompt? I don't think so...

I'm not sure what I was really expecting, but I know I'm disappointed.

Oh well.

You need this flying car

So I tried out plinky. This is the question it gave me:

Engineers are getting closer to the dream of the flying car. How would you sell one of these if you were an auto dealer?

How would I sell one? One word: poorly.

A Second Blog...

I've been thinking about creating a second blog. Not just a reposted blog but a different one with different content, I won't spoil the surprise yet. We'll see if I actually follow through....

Anyway, spring is here and my wrist is getting back to normal. Didn't I ever tell you about my wrist? Someday.......

I Like Bowling

10 pin, that is. 5 pin has never held the same fascination for me. Not sure why. But 10 pin, oh yeah! We went bowling today, at a retro styled place. We should bowl more often. I should bowl more often anyway. I really do enjoy it. I like bowling shirts, I like the shoes, I like the retro bowling posters. I like Formica, I like cartoony atomic & boomerang designs, I even like bowling signs. Why don't I go bowling more often? I don't know. Anyway, I'm off to read up about the history of bowling...

Wesson Oil, Chili, Sick & Wrong

I'm making chili. I searched for chili cook-off winning recipes. I encountered one that called for use of Wesson oil. Wesson isn't a brand one sees around hear. In fact I didn't know it was a brand for the longest time. I did know it was a song though. A song by a band called Sick & Wrong. So today, like times in the past, when I read Wesson oil I first thought of the song. I suppose for those already familiar with Wesson as a grocery item, hearing the song would have been a different experience than was mine. I wonder if I will now have strange imagery associated with making chili.....
