Random Thoughts Not Worthy Of Individual Posts

- The country should have a one week holiday declared every year. We would all be on vacation at the same time without guilt. (Except hotel, food and entertainment employees would have to work.) - I started watching the Godfather for the first time ever. I had to put the subtitles on. But so far, so good. - I haven't been in the Decatur Lowe's yet - The headline in the Messenger today that read "Silence of the Stands" was very clever (it was about the fireworks ban) - Every morning I eat one low fat eggroll with skim milk - Jeff Crilley of Fox 4 News has the most dramatic silent voice in the history of ever - I have no idea who the girls in this photo to right are - I don't believe you can ever learn anything meaningful if you eat lunch with more than three people at one time - Tazers are a great idea.

A buddy of mine showed me a weather satellite photo that had been taken 15 minutes earlier. I couldn't believe that could be delivered on demand into your home. I rambled on and on about the Internet for the next couple of months and people looked at me like I was crazy. - I had a jonesin' for Elaine in the first three years of Seinfeld. After that, didn't care for her too much. - One of these days I'm just going to walk away from it all
