Five Thoughts on a Friday – The “Missed It Again” Edition

Howdy folks, and welcome to another edition of Five Thoughts. Been a bit of a crazy week around here, but we’re finally coming down off of that sugar high from the paczki on Tuesday. With Ash Wednesday this past week, we’re now well into the Easter season. So, let’s roll right on into weirdness and see what we can find this week.

  1. So, apparently Ash Wednesday was also National Margarita Day. Which was also followed yesterday by National Chili Day. Now, I’m all in favor of chili, and margaritas. But the timing for these days just seems odd to me. I mean yes, margaritas and chili pair nicely together. And that’s what bothers me. Couldn’t we get them moved into early May somehow? We could work out a Margarita Day, Cinqo de Mayo, Chili Day triple-header? Wouldn’t that be a lot more fun? Oh, and I’ve also just been informed that today is National Tortilla Chip day. Let’s move that one, too! Now we’ve got four days to celebrate at the beginning of May. That’s a party!
    Damn, now I’m hungry.
  2. Last night, the Detroit Red Wings lost, at home in a shootout, for the 1st time in 24 games. That’s right, they’re 23-1 in their last 24 home games. Not too shabby. For those of you looking for someone to blame for the loss? You can thank my co-blogger. Who was in attendance at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit.
  3. Every now and then, you hear about this thing called Karma. And every now and then you see some pompous you-know-what who thinks that they don’t have to follow the rules that everyone else plays by. You know the type when you see them cut lines at the store, ignore merge signs on the freeway, or in this case…. decide that the construction warning markers don’t apply to them, only to drive into a patch of still wet concrete! Red?
  4. Speaking of people Red would apply that particular adjective to, there was an article in USA Today earlier this week about the items confiscated by TSA screeners at airports. Now, I’m not a huge fan of a lot of the TSA process some of it seems to be a bit of draconian overkill. That being said, I’ve never had a problem. Still, reading the article, I just had to shake my head at some of the items listed that people try to carry onto a plane! Folks, if you can’t bring a box cutter or a swiss army knife on board, you sure as hell aren’t going to be able to bring your samurai sword or spear gun on! I’d ask if it’s really that hard to figure out, but obviously, for some people, it is.
  5. There was something I had thought up to go into one of these spots here this week, but as usually I failed to make an adequate note and now don’t have a clue to what it was I wanted to talk about. Other than thinking at the time that it would be a fun topic. I guess I need to go blogging school and learn how to do this stuff the correct way. Still, I never once claimed to be good at this. In the meantime, I’ll wrap it up for the week. Don’t want to keep anyone from their day jobs.  Besides, I have to go put away the snow shovels. I got them back out based on the promise and threat of a ton of snow. We’re talking snow emergency declared, sirens going off, the works. And we got… wet sidewalks at the house. Boo. Missed it again.

Okay folks, that’s five and I’m out of here for the weekend. Got a lot to do, a day trip to attend to, and home improvement and repair projects to try to get to. In the interim, I’ll leave you with this. Because I’ve been wanting to use it for a while now. And since we’re into Lent and people are eating fish on Fridays. It just seems to fit. Sort of.

Have a great weekend folks!

More Christmas Fun!

Apparently this morning was officially “Bad Remakes of Christmas Songs” day on the radio. I’m not going to name them outright, as I have no desire to re-live the horror they inflicted upon my ears. Instead, I’ll try to drown it out with a double shot of underrated Christmas musical fun.

Considering we currently have far too much

We’re being threatened with a Wet, instead of White Christmas.

Someone needs to place a call to this guy and get that fixed.

We’ll post some more tomorrow if we think about it.

Have a great day folks!

Christmas Music…. Something a bit different

So it seems I sparked a bit of a… well, I don’t want to call it a ‘war’ when I pondered in last Friday’s Five Thoughts” if my co-blogger still felt the same way he did Last Christmas about a certain Christmas song. He managed to respond with the (in)famous Ding Fries are done video. I know it’s wildly popular online, but I can’t say for sure that I would call it a “Christmas Song”. But Since it is Christmas time, i figured, what the heck, we’ll run a few more Christmas songs up on the blog. Just for the fun of it. Let us know if there’s one you want us to try to find. In the meantime, it’s true. Christmas time is here again.

Five thoughts on a Friday – the “Rocks can hurt you” edition

Howdy folks, and welcome to another edition of Five Thoughts on a Friday. We’re in no particular rush to get anywhere with this one today, so forgive us if it rambles around a bit. (Wow, got called into a meeting and suddenly it’s past the time of day I wanted to get this out by. Ok, now I *am* in a hurry!)

  1. I had originally called the the <TBD> edition. Apparently the system thought the <> was code and didn’t like that. Meaning, it erased it. Sheesh! Even my own blog platform is a critic now!
  2. California is considering changing it’s state rock. Apparently the state rock contains asbestos. I guess it even being PRESENT in a rock is enough to require a warning in California. This is, after all, the same state that warn you about eating fishing lures that contain lead since it can cause illness or birth defects. Funny how they never mention what the HOOKS on the lure would do to you. They’re just worried about the lead. Not like that state has any other issues to be working on, either. So, California? Don’t eat the state rocks. There, problem solved.
  3. I admit I’m a little torn on this one. It seems this lady has a disproportionate share of trouble crossing the border. Ok, I’m not torn. She want’s the problem fixed. I understand that, I really do. But it seems to me that she also wants attention now. After all… “The head of New York’s Champlain crossing gave Nelson his cell phone number so she can call before crossings so he can help. She refuses to call ahead, reasoning that the government should be responsible for fixing its own problem.”  See that there? That’s a SOLUTION. It may not be ideal, or perfect. But for her particular situation, it’s a still a solution. It’s someone at least TRYING to help.
  4. America’s Fastest road.  “the fastest drivers routinely reach speeds of 87 to 90 miles per hour” Pffft! Rookies. These people have obviously never had to make my morning drive. 80-85 mph is the average speed to keep from getting run off the road. And we’re four lanes wide. Why yes, I have totaled a brand new car this year. Why do you ask?
  5. And y’all thought it was just the domestic auto industry that caused the “never buy a Friday car” talk, huh? Turns out the “July Effect” is real according to a new study. So there you go. Stay home and run our reader numbers up instead of getting surgery, you’ll be safer!

Ok, that’s five things for this Friday and I’m going to tear on out of here. It’s funny though. In looking back over some older posts recently, I came to realize how much longer this feature has gotten over the past year (And here I am running up the word count even more. How about that?). It’s true, go back and check out some of the older ones if you want. There where five thoughts in them still, but a lot less text. And no videos or pictures originally either. What do you think? Go back to the stripped down version, or stick with what we have now?

For today’s video… Stumbled across this while working on a new post. A little old school 80’s cheese.

Have a great weekend folks!
