That John Denver is full of ......

I am off to Denver to visit my sister for a few days. Many posts when I get back.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Baby, I'm not fa-fa-fa-fooooolin......

Def Leppard was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! That was truly one of the best rock shows I have ever been to in my life. They played all their famous songs, no new junk, no long jam sessions.

Just. amazing.music.

My hat's off to you, oh Deffest of the Leppards. I love you.

The worst pain in the world

I think I would rather have someone step on my bare foot than get something stuck in my eye. Worst pain the world = something stuck in your eye.

What about you? Paper cut? Hang nail?

I have a crush on someone.....

This man rocks and Toledo Harley Davidson is an amazing place to have a rock show.

Good times at the Beach Bar

This is us...circa 1982

Raft ride home from BB.

Straight from the High Schooler's mouth...

Continuing my investigation of Wow Cow vs. Frost at McCord yesterday I discovered yet another "fact":
Window Boy #1:
"Wow Cow was lactose-free and Frost has lactose in it. Other than that, it's the same."
(**Note I have polled 3 gals and one guy)

Kickstart my heart......

Going to see Vince Neil at Toledo Harley Davidson tomorrow night.
Sadly, Tommy, Nikki, and Mick will not be joining.
However, he is going to sing all the Mötley Crüe songs so it will be a rock show.
Don't tell me you don't love Dr. Feelgood. What's your favorite Crüe song?

Right-hand Man.....and controversy

The Radical Bradical (aka BJ) asked where right-hand man came from and here is what I found in Wikipedia:

"A right-hand man is a kind of assistant, male or female, relied upon heavily by another. The term comes from the importance of the right hand in performing tasks (since most people are right-handed). There is speculation that "right-hand man" also comes from the idea of a king with his advisor sitting on his right side, but there is little evidence supporting it."

This reminds me that I have been meaning to blog about how the world is run by right handed people and we south paws are totally in the minority. My favorite example of the moment is the "Pay at the Pump" illustration. This illustration makes no sense to me. Since I would use my left hand for the credit card, it would make sense that my left thumb is on the side with the strip. Therefore, I usually insert the card the incorrect way causing a "Damn it!" and a flip of the card.



Wow Cow update...

Ok, I got the "scoop" on Wow Cow and here it is......there is no more. Don't freak out! Both Mr. Freeze locations have replaced Wow Cow with a product called "Frost" that has the exact same nutritional value and comes in multiple flavors. It is like if a restaurant starting serving Pepsi instead of Coke. I will be obtaining more information as the week goes on and will be posting results.

Here is how my first conversation with window girl #1 on McCord went:
Me: "Hi, is Wow Cow gone forever (slightly frantic and a bit sweaty)."
Her: "Yes (completely calm)."
Me: "Uh, is something else replacing it, I mean, I can't go the rest of my life without this stuff (alarmed and annoyed with her calmness)."
Her: "We have Frost. It is the same as Wow Cow but better."
Me: "How is it better? Does it come in fun flavors like our beloved Wow Cow (still a bit frantic)?"
Her: "(probably scared by now) It is creamier and does come in other flavors but I don't know what they are."
Me: "THANK GOD (causing a small scene)!!!!!!!!"

Three sheets to the wind

This is an appropriate topic that represents my weekend well. We did get into a discussion and wondered, how did this saying start? I looked it up and it makes total sense:


The term "three sheets to the wind", meaning "staggering drunk", refers to a ship whose sheets have come loose, causing the sails to flap uncontrolled and the ship to meander at the mercy of the elements.
Awesome (and pirate-y).

Dream

Last night I dreamt that I showed up for a party (present day) but I was dressed as I would have been dressed in 8th grade (1993). So, upon entering the party and everyone looks totally normal, I realized that I looked ridiculous in my big jeans, flannel, and doc martens, complete with Jansport bookbag.

Fortune


I love Chinese food and I love fortune cookies. I got a fortune yesterday that was creepy:
Someone is watching you from afar.
What? That is a weird one. Have you ever gotten an awesome or weird fortune that you saved?
HSL, you need to post on this one.

Potential Disaster

Friends...M has posted this in my comments and I will investigate. I have no idea what Mr. Freeze could be thinking but honestly, this is potentially a disaster.

Speaking of mysteries, there's one you need to solve. For some reason, Mr. Freeze in Perrysburg took down their Wow Cow sign out front and Mike went up to the window to see if they still had it on their machines and they don't! What's up with that. They instead had something like sugar free vanilla and no-fat chocolate, but no mention of Wow Cow anymore. I'm perplexed and upset and need to know more. You got any info on that?

The Plastic Bag Conundrum

Why is it that when you tie a plastic bag in a double knot, you absolutely cannot rip the bag open?

I met Christian Bale

..In my dream. I have a crazy dream almost every night and I am lucky enough to remember them. My sisters are the same way. I think I am going to start posting them more often unless they are totally wacko and then no one will want to be my friend because you will think I am a freak.

Last night I had a dream that I was a movie producer and the movie was one of those animated (think A Scanner Darkly not Pixar) films. The stars? Donnie Wahlberg and Christian Bale. The plot? Christian Bale killed someone in self defense and is on the run. Donnie is chasing him. The cool part is that I was hanging out with them on the set as they were acting the scenes out and the animators were drawing as they were acting.

I had it again...

I had the dream again last night. You know, the classic anxiety dream involving school or something that you are supposed to be getting done and you are not. In my case, my recurrent anxiety dream: I am two weeks into the semester and find out I have missed every one of my German classes and am probably failing by now.

Do you have a recurrent dream?

Movie Review - Knocked Up



Knocked Up
is funny. Laugh out loud in the theater funny.
This movie is certainly not for everyone, especially people who
don't like:
1 - Nudity
2- Dumb guy jokes (farts and stuff)
3 - Sex jokes
4- Bad language
5 - Gross stuff

I do like Seth Rogen as Ben who reminds me of a combination of
Will Ferrell and Jack Black. Katherine Heigl's character is nothing like Izzy from Grey's Anatomy so don't worry.

Overall, I recommend this one, although it does take a turn for the worse towards the middle-ish end and starts acting like a romantic comedy.

6 months and counting...


July 1 was my 6 month mark for no smoking. I just had to brag a little :)
Thanks for everyone's support.

Foiled!

Just to show how much they loved and missed me, my lovely co-workers "decorated" my work space while I was away. It reminded me of the Fortress of Solitude or a spaceship or something else that is awesome. Either way....two days of hard work. I loved it.
