I watched “The Fun with Dick and Jane” yesterday. Enjoyable movie – reminds me of “Trading Places.” # Adobe Illustrator gives me a headache. # @DinoRubble Photoshop and Premiere I’m good with. The rest largely elludes me, though I think I’ve been irritated with PageMaker too. # We’re instituting new “Green” janitorial services at work.… Continue reading Twitter Updates for 2008-07-31

Just ran out to Darling’s Coffee on 20th and Pine. Lox and cream cheese bagel, finally! # I ate the center of my son’s cinnamon bun. There’s a special place in Hell for me. # Powered by Twitter Tools.
It’s Like Watching NASCAR on Acid
We went out on Mother’s Day with some friends to see what we all knew would be a bad movie, Speed Racer. Between the 9 or so adults, there were also 3 children around Balthazar’s age. If nothing else, we thought they would thoroughly enjoy the over-the-top cheese and hyper-saturated pop-film. We might have all… Continue reading It’s Like Watching NASCAR on Acid
Panera Wins the Sitter’s Choice
Panera Bread Co. in Gainesville, GA (I presume it’s the same everywhere) won my choice in a place to sit early this morning before the county tag office opens. I first went to Starbucks from habit, though I quickly remembered that Starbucks would not due to sit a while. If you’re there for people-watching, Starbucks… Continue reading Panera Wins the Sitter’s Choice
Dames A’Flame – Atlanta Burlesque
Jeff McClure got a gig with this month’s Dames A’Flame burlesque show in Atlanta. Contrary to what you might imagine (and shame on you), Jeff was not decked out in the style of burlesque. No, he performed his magic act with some witty banter with the girls to get some laughs. It went well and… Continue reading Dames A’Flame – Atlanta Burlesque
A New Era
Today is a day I may well regret for a year to come. I introduced Balthazar, the three-year-old, to cheese fries. This marks the end of most any other food, I’m sure.
Either way, the FDA blocked approval of the “Alli,” the new OTC version of Xenical because the effects aren’t permanent. (The drug works by blocking absorption of about one-third of fat consumed.) Users only lost about 15 pounds in a year amidst a slew of side effects such as abdominal cramping, oily stools, and rampant… Continue reading Random News
Drunken Goat Cheese
In what could very well be a new *thing*, I’ve indulged in a new cheese never before known to my palate. It was Isi’s (soon to have a linkable blog) inspiration that got me to do this. That is, Isi talked about a “Tour de Cheese” to have a chance at trying lots of different… Continue reading Drunken Goat Cheese
We ate at Sonic last night and when Amy asked me what I would like, I sang it to her. I ordered the heart-attack, “tots with the chil-li, cheese, and jal-la-la-peño-oh-ooh!.” You get the idea. At any rate, it finally came down to her ordering. As she did, I continued to sing (quietly) my order… Continue reading Jal-la-la-peño-oh-ooh!
My friend, Jason D., sent me a chain-letter to fill out and send to a million people for good luck or something. I am against such things, but I like Jason and wish to at least better his luck. Instead of emailing everyone with my MadLib biography, I chose to post it here on my… Continue reading MadLib Biographies
