My Frizzy Notions

Rule by Fools: Kakistroacy
First, I Think Text Felicitations Are Dumb

I am, of course, referring to people who send text messages of "Happy - Insert Holiday-". Seriously, for the Love of a Simple Cellular Phone Plan stop it. I have to pay for out of network text messages after 50 and greetings are not worth an additional fee each month. Maybe you think that I am overreacting. So.... Send a card. Spend your money instead. Especially if you are not in my network. Or call me after 9 oçlock.

Two, Hallmark is still the best place to go for the perfect card or gift.

If you have resorted to buying your cards from Wal-mart or Kroger's, remember that you can do better than that. I love visiting Hallmark during holiday seasons. There is always something worth buying or someone worth surprising. It is a lot more thoughtful than a text message.

Three, this is a great time to catch up on movies that you missed at the theater.

Allow me to recommend one for you.

Imagine if you will that the Writer's Guild strike continues indefinitely. Reality TV shows flood the airwaves. Clown court TV shows and CS-Sci-Fi replace real justice. Law and Order begins to resemble Reno 911. Entertainment news and biased talk shows replace investigative report and the whole story. Imagine if the greatest economic, legal, political, military, scientific, academic and humanitarian minds stop having children or have less children. Just imagine another 500 years later.

I am not talking about a future influenced by wars and planetary expansion like that portrayed in Serenity and Star Trek. Nor a future shaped by viruses and conflict like Aeon Flux or Ultraviolet. Not a world dominated by a totalitarian government as in V is for Vendetta. No that that at all. I am referring to a world ruled by idiots. A movie by Mike Judge and well worth a movie rental. Good satire and a scary future.

Idiocracy Photos

It is called Idiocracy and feature Luke Wilson, Maya Rudolph and Mike Judge. This is a presidential parade of the future.

Four, buy a lap desk.

These big wooden desks are great. I can put my laptop in the middle, a book to the left and still have room for a writing tablet. I can use it while surfing the Internet on my PC, too. I love this little lap table. You should get one, too. Think of the possibilities.

Five, Try new bread.

I must admit. Hazelnut, poppyseed wheat bread is the best bread on Earth. Just try it once. You will be hooked

Okay, seriously I was just having fun. The real point of this blog was to get you to rent Idiocracy available right now at your local video store. Funniest movie of 2006 that noone saw!

Idiocracy DVD: Standard Edition

My original blog had a lot of my favorite secrets but that one is gone. Isn't it?

My night went from irritation to worse, too. After losing my blog entry, I went to bed. Around 4:30 am I found myself losing my dinner. I have been under the weather all day. And you know what? It would really be great if someone sent to me a text message that said, "I hope you are feeling better."

Just kidding........

Entry for November 26, 2007

I had a really cool blog entry. It was about some really cool things that I have discovered. You would have liked it. There were pictures and links. I spent an hour on it. Probably more because I had drafted it in my mind earliar this week. I permitted myself to post it once I completed my homework. So there is a good hour of my life gone. Some really great reflections that I wanted to share. Just released into cyberspace. Gone.

The innerworkings of my mind. Blank.

My butt aches from sitting on my bed and I have to work in the morning. But - no blog to post. Nope. It went away.

I clicked on "Post This Entry" and it disappeared.

Now it is late and I am tired. I will try again tomorrow.

Freaking pisses me off sometimes.....

Trapped in an Elevator

The Perfect Holiday Gift
I read this article and thought to myself. I want one, too.

I want a cell phone jammer, too.

Sometimes, I am trapped by cell phones. I am trapped in elevators, cars, in line at the store, in my office, at a meal or wherever by someone's cell phone conversation.

I have actually started covering my mouth when I am talking near people to avoid being overheard. I realized that if I were at home no one would listen to me and no one really needed to know what I am plotting.

It drives me nuts when people shout into their cell phone as if they are in a crowded room and no one could possibly hear them anyway. While everyone makes crazy faces at the cell phone shouter, I am the one suggested that she might be more comfortable having her conversation in another room. That is right. I am an advocate of bringing folks back to reality.


In the past, it was cool to have a cell phone. People thought you were important. We were quiet while business deals or medical advice was dispensed. Once, a guy accepted a job offer on his cell phone.

Today, it is just nonsense.

Husbands calling about grocery lists; a guy telling his brother that his girlfriend had filed assault charges before he was able to do so; friends who don't want anything at all but to know what you are doing; chinese food orders; party locations and attendees; or daughters asking their mom where their school uniform is located.

Too Much Information Overload

I want it to stop. Cover your mouth when you answer your phone or don't answer it. Look around you. There are people there. Is your life really that interesting that strangers must be subjected to one-half of your conversation? And for the sake of all things private, don't answer your phone in a public restroom.

Too Much Vanilla....

Wednesday, November 7, 2007

What do you believe?
I do not believe in a lot of things. but there is one thing that I do believe without a doubt in my heart.

I am not clear on Angels, Vampires or reverse-racism but I definitely believe that some things do exist.

I believe in creatures that hide small objects until you give up looking for them.

I believe that ghosts haunt us, although I can't figure out why they would bother.

I believe that you can put too much vanilla in a recipe in opposition to what my mother told me once.

I believe that daisies are the friendliest flowers.

I believe that bluetooth headsets as technology should be banned and no further research should be developed around the concept.

I believe that robots should not be made to look like humans.

I believe that really cheap shoes hurt you in the long run.

I believe that Christmas trees are creepy.

I believe that the act of shaving is symbolic of men's dominance.

But more than any of those listed and many not listed - I believe that Zombies are Real

If you believe as I do, then follow this guy's website and order your uniform.

Just think about all of the medicines that are pulled off the market each year. All of the medicines that are probably sitting in a refrigerator - fermenting. Between the fields of bio-chemistry, genetics, religious fanaticism, and anthropology, I think that it is more possible than a national health care system.

Okay, I can tell that it is a stopwatch. But then I look under it and find.....


What are those holes for? They have teeth inside as if to grab something but exactly what?
