It’s funny how many people for whom I learn their last name when they friend me on Facebook. Rather, I learn their married last names.
My infatuation with the Dodge Caliber has come to an end. I sat in one at the mall. I’ve never been so scrunched in my life… and I have driven some pretty small cars. The only thing that let me sit-up was the fact that there was a moonroof. This is particularly notable because my knees up against the dashboard wouldn’t let me slouch.
I got my father-in-law Magnum PI for Christmas. I was not expecting a series so old to be so expensive.
I may have gone down another belt notch. It seems dependent on when I last ate.
I saw a movie at the dollar theater. They had an advertisement for St. Jude’s hospital, where they treat people with an inability to pay. Sounds like a pretty worthy cause, but is a dollar theater really the place where you’re going to find people that have the money and the inclination to part with it unnecessarily? Two kinds of people go to dollar theaters: cheap-skates and poor people.
Speaking of the dollar theater, there seems to be a dearth of good movies out there at the moment. You know you’re in trouble with Couples Retreat seems like it might be something worth seeing.
We’ve been doing some investigating into Arapaho, deciding our degree of interest in relocating there. One thing that Clancy discovered is that they take their right to bear arms very, very seriously. I may have to get a gun just to be one of the cool kids.
I took a shopping excursion tonight. Apparently, when my wife said that she wanted a thinger of garlic, she meant that she wanted a thinger of garlic. This caused confusion when I asked where I should put the onion that she requested I buy.
My old ice-scraper fell apart while scraping ice in Estacado of all places. I bought a new one this week, thus assuring that the weather would immediately and steadily stay above freezing. You’re welcome, Soundview.
Some people, when watching a horror movie, try to inform the protagonists of what is happening. “He’s right behind you! Don’t look back!” They never listen. I found myself talking to a character in a book the other night. “He’s a con man! Don’t give him the money!” He didn’t listen, either.
Weird thing I learned today: All four of the major universities in the real-life Dakotas are on the eastern edge of the state. Oregon has all three of their major universities on the west side of their state (within a couple hours of one another), but since that’s where the population is it makes sense. Montana has its two major universities on the western side of the state even though the largest city is on the eastern.
