Give It Up

leave a comment »

Would you give up the Internet for a million dollars?

I’d probably go through a million dollars worth of porn per year, so the answer is No.

A Gluttony Of Hype

leave a comment »

As much as I liked Carlton Fisk’s playing career (he and Ivan Rodriguez are my favorite catchers to play the game), I’m so tired of circle-jerk revolving around that 1975 World Series home run. It was only Game 6 and the Massholes lost that Series anyway.

And it just dawned on me that both Fisk and Rodriguez were nicknamed “Pudge.” Guess I’m a chubby chaser with it comes to that position.

Forever Bond

leave a comment »

With Amy Winehouse’s recent passing, I got the thinking about a public figure/celebrity whose death will be a real kick in the pants.

Now I’m not talking about someone like Winehouse, who died from drugs at a young 27. I’m talking about someone who lived a full life and now I feel like “dang, he’s gone?” while questioning my own mortality.

The first thought that popped in my head: Sean Connery.

Now even though death is a part of life, THIS will live on forever.

No Need To Say Who’s Sauron

leave a comment »

This reminds me of a bumper sticker I saw years ago that read, “Frodo Failed: Bush Got The Ring.” Ha.

And I don’t understand how calling someone a “hobbit” is supposed to be an insult.

Sen. John McCain on Wednesday took on conservatives reluctant to raise the national debt ceiling, calling them “tea party hobbits” and saying that if they reject the House Republican plan, they will help reelect President Obama.

And I know there’s a McCain/Saruman joke to be had, but that’s too easy — even by my standards.

Seasonal Songs

leave a comment »

As I was driving into work this morning, it dawned on me that I tend to listen to a lot more AC-DC and Blondie in the summertime.

I may have to start keeping track of other seasonal music.

Why do I listen to these two bands during the summertime? I dunno. They just seem like “summer” bands playing “summer” music.

Well, ACDC has a few songs with “Hell” in it. Hell is definitely hot.

Blondie? Who knows.

Now what type of “winter” music do I listen to? Dunno. Guess I’ll have to wait until January/February to find out.

Boxed Out

leave a comment »

So I do a lot of shipping and I have a stash of boxes I use. Basically, there are two types of boxes.

The first set of boxes are boxes that have previously been used. There’s some wear and tear, but it’s still shippable.

The second set of boxes are boxes I order/purchase. These are new boxes and because I purchase them and bill the client.

Every time I talk to my office brethren about my stash of shipping boxes, I tell them that the used boxes are for everybody to use. However, I make it abundantly that these boxes are to be left alone. And you can tell the difference between these two types of boxes.

Now what did I discover this morning? The shipping boxes in my workplace stash that I asked my office brethren not to use suddenly went from a count of 15 to 0.

Time to go Galt.

A Happy Meal A Day…

leave a comment »

‎”Critics wasted no time complaining that McDonald’s changes don’t go far enough.”

Of course they did.

An apple a day may keep the doctor away. But when you put it in a Happy Meal, it might help keep regulators at bay too. McDonald’s on Tuesday said that it would add apple slices and reduce the portion of French fries in its children’s meal boxes beginning this fall, effectively taking away consumers’ current choice between either having apples with caramel dip or fries as a Happy Meal side.

The move by McDonald’s, which has become a leader in moving from just burgers and fries to more nutritious fare like oatmeal and salads, comes as fast food chains face intense scrutiny from health officials and others who blame the industry for childhood obesity and other health-related problems. Some municipalities, including San Francisco, have even banned fast food restaurants from selling kids’ meals with toys.

Critics wasted no time complaining that McDonald’s changes don’t go far enough. Kelle Louaillier, executive director of a group called Corporate Accountability International, said McDonald’s is just trying to get ahead of impending regulations that will restrict the marketing of junk food to children and require restaurants to post nutrition information on menus, among other changes.

If McDonald’s wants to include healthier options in its menu, then yay. It’s the consumer’s choice whether to eat that greasy shit. And judging from the obesity rates of this country, it appears that the dumbmasses have spoken.

I can’t remember the last time I ate at a McDonald’s, but if someone wants to chow down on quarter pounders then that is his choice. I know the argument about, “Well this type of lifestyle results in higher health care costs for everyone.” True, but if each person was responsible for his health insurance then people would pay for the poor lifestyle choices they make.
