Cookie Monster at a Cubs game

 Even if you can’t stand the Chicago Cubs and/or baseball on TV, you gotta’ admit, seeing Cookie Monster singing at the seventh-inning stretch is worth watching. Given last night’s car accident, I felt the site needed a little levity.

I sort of made the REF save…

…but my poor car Vixen failed the FORT roll. It’s late and it’s been a long, frustrating evening so all I will say is we had a car accident but we are perfectly fine. We had our seat belts on, … Continue reading

Rock & Rule

Couldn’t pass up this Weird Wednesday offering at Alamo South Lamar since it’s a huge favorite of Somara’s. She has it on DVD somewhere too but with this being a Canadian movie with a tragic history, it was exciting to … Continue reading

MAD makes a good point against straws!

I have been asking Starbucks to give me what’s called a nitro lid with my drinks so I can consume my iced latte like a can of soda (it’s soda, pop is what you do to a zit). Besides, the … Continue reading

GWD’s Futurama rematch!

Ouch! My teef! Part 2: The Dentist’s assessment

While I was grateful the dentist could see me yesterday near the end of my shift, I knew the news would be crummy but I hate it when all the other jazz comes into play. Yes, I haven’t been to … Continue reading

The Wandering Earth or 流浪的地球: 掷骰子

While Endgame and Captain Marvel tally up as the biggest globally grossing movies of 2019, this Chinese attempt at mainstream Science Fiction/Disaster Porn is in third place thanks to China buying 99% of the tickets; it’s not market size, it’s the limited … Continue reading

Us: Must See

Jordan Peele’s second Horror flick which had its world premiere at SXSW, translation, unless you were an asshole with a SCLM badge, you weren’t allowed to see it until it theaters. SXSW doesn’t concern me anyway, I just regret not … Continue reading

Ouch! My teef!

“Just what we need!” to paraphrase Somara which was also very little comfort yesterday as I showed her what happened when I fainted yesterday. Fainted? I’ve been feeling off, mostly bed-ridden so I should’ve taken my time heading to the … Continue reading

Since 1950, the Dobson family has kept their predominantly Texas-based burger chain privately owned. It is something they proudly display on the windows of the restaurants, “Family Owned.” Not any longer. Technically what Harmon Dobson’s offspring have done is sell … Continue reading

Current streak ends at 73 days

The exercise streak I established at some point in April came to a crashing end with yesterday being the final day. There was no injury or anything. I just had a mental setback as the whole afternoon of 6/13 transformed … Continue reading
