Uh-oh, the Yuletide's a-Risin'.

The other day I went to Blockbuster to rent the movie 'Elf.' All childrens/family movies are $.99 too. When I got to the counter, the sales lady asked me if I rented it every year. I thought about it and shrugged my shoulders and said yeah. She then told me that I could save some money and buy it new for $10. I frowned. "Yeah, but it'd take like, 10 years for me to save money. I think I'll just check it out." She hesitantly said "Okay...," like I was missing out on the biggest deal of the century. Nice try lady. Her name was Mitzy.

Nature's Wonders

In my nearly 30 years of life, I've seen of nature's most tremendous wonders. I've seen a bald eagle soaring magestically and finally perching in his nest. I've hiked many trails and have stared in awe as Old Faithful delivered its hourly chore. I've swam in tropical waters with dolphins and seen giant sea turtles as they glide through the sea. Today I experienced something that would rival these wonders of nature. I heard a man use the phrase "Well, what the hay..." in a sentence. How could something so extinct, something so strange-sounding, so 1950's make it in a natural conversation in 2009? Cashier: Sir, would you like to large-size it for an extra $ .40? Man: Well, what the hay...

What the hay indeed! I've never heard that used ever. Now I can cross that one off my list. My list still consists of corny phrases that I've still to experience. But that's another blog.

Camo couple

I got some breakfast at Cracker Barrel the other morning (to-go). On my way out, I decided to follow this couple to see what hunting vehicle they got into. It (suprisingly) wasn't camouflage, but apparently the man's name is superman. I think he was telling his wife in this picture to get in, sit down, shut up and hold on.

Addiction through subtraction.

What really goes through someone's mind when they put a Calvin sticker on their back glass that's peeing on the word 'Addiction'? But is the pee clean? We may never know.

Some things that drive me nuts...

Whistling nose hairs when people breathe through their nose, 3-pronged forks, recumbent bikes, KU fans, people trying to talk through a yawn, vampires, when a toenail snags when putting on socks, annoying servers at restaurants, homeless guys that have dogs, stepping in gum, ants, wooden popsicle sticks, waiting in lines, talking to someone on the phone who's using the restroom, mohawks, when tv commercials take old songs and change the lyrics and completely ruin the original. Just to name a few.

Old people can be bullies too.

Yesterday Meg and I went to Panera Bread Co. to eat. (I always think it's funny to call it Pantera Bread Co.) Anyhoo, while we were in line, this elderly lady came up and asked if we were in line. Then she said, "I can't read the menu from here," and walked up closer. Then... she cut in line. After we ordered, I walked up to her and she apologized for cutting in line, but it was too late! I told her she was sneaky and I knew her kind. As I was walking to my seat I walked past her and elbowed her gently as she was in my way. I hope it didn't leave a big bruise on her liver-spotted hands. If it did, maybe she'll look down at it in the next couple of months and realize that cutting corners doesn't pay off.

Megan told me to be nice to her because she doesn't have as long to live as I do. I said that I was mad at her for getting to live a long, cushy life (eating at Panera). Then I chomped on my potato chips as loud as I could in her general direction.

Well, we did leave the restaurant before she did. We win.

No, I win.

This gem is framed by a chevrolet logo and is in some weird Lord of the Rings-ish font. Oh, and there's the happy and sad drama masks painted on the trunk of the car. Wow. Thanks Independence.

DWIGHT, HOW great thou ARD.

I was in the shower thinking of all the great Dwights and Howards throughout time. First the Dwights:

Dwight Howard. Superman:

dwight-howard-superman


Dwight Yoakum (ripper):
dwight_y

Dwight Schrute:
dwight_schrute

and Dwight (sneezy) Gooden:
Dwight-Gooden

For the Howards, we have:
Moe Howard:
moe howard

Curly Howard:
curly

and Howard the Duck:
howard_the_duck

Honorable mention goes to Howard Johnson (the baseball player and hotel).

But the closest to Dwight Howard's name is Dwight D. Eisenhoward. I know that's not how you spell it.

Sometimes I react strangely around famous people. I get really tense and who knows what'll come out. Once I saw a football player for the KC Chiefs at a bar playing pool. I went up to him and told him thanks for keeping it real for the home team. WHAT?! In this recent 'Danica' instance, I kept it real.

A Weekend of Racing

This weekend, I went to the Kansas Speedway. Saturday was the Nascar Truck Series Race and Sunday was the IndyCar race. I got to meet Danica Patrick, Helio Castroneves, Hideki Mutoh as well as others. On Sunday morning, I participated in the Trolley Run which was 4 miles, then went out to the speedway after that. Today, my leg and feet muscles are pretty tender. It was nice to see the tickets I designed as well.

Independence never ceases to amaze me.

I found this gem while sitting at a red light. It used to be a GMC Safari mini van, but I guess the owner didn't like it as a van and decided a truck looked better.

RamMan vs. ManRam: Which is more powerful?

Exhibit A:
On He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, there used to be a guy named RamMan. He looked like a guy in a trashcan with springy legs who talked kind of like John Madden and had a hatchet axe thingie.
ramman

Exhibit B:
A Master of his own Universe who Adioses more balls than my Royals can ever hope to. He has made buddies with the Dodgers' owner Frank McCourt (who wrote Angela's Ashes)? Weird. Anyhoo, this predator-looking maniac doesn't have an axe, but he might as well. You decide.
manram

My vote's with the He-Man guy, cause he won't piss me off by whining.
