I'm going to take a page out of Tiff's book and just give you all random updates on all the things I think I need to cover for the last few weeks. Beware the random...
Somebody needs to track that frelling groundhog down and shoot the sumbidge. Winter's almost over my eema. We've had new snow here every day for over a week. IN MARCH! It was warmer here if February...
If you get fresh milk from the neighbor... you can tell when he's rubbed bag balm on the udder before he milks the cow. It has a... peculiar taste that stays with you. On the other hand... fresh milk with the cream floating on top? Not bad... not bad at all. I always avoided milk in the past. That pasteurized crap always gave me a cotton mouth something fierce so I switched to half and half. Still pasteurized but much better. Made me burp up a foul taste though when I'd use it on my Crispix. So now I'm down to drinking the real thing, straight from the tit. Good stuff Maynard... oh... and do you know how difficult it is to actually drink a gallon of milk a week? Ya gotta work at it...
All of my regular blog friends have gone the way of the dodo bird. Even fermi! I always knew they were a bad example for me... I blame Tiff for this.
Why is it that you have to remove the whole dashboard of a Dodge pickup in order to replace a leaking heater coil that shouldn't leak in the first place? And why is it that said coil will automatically fill up with crap so that there's little or no air circulation and that the added ethylene glycol coming out of the leaking coil will fog your front window up to the point that you can't see but can taste antifreeze quite plainly? And why is it that you have to drain all of the refrigerant out of the air conditioning system in order to remove the dashboard so that you have to buy all new refrigerant when there's nothing wrong with the air conditioner? And why is it that designers and engineers can't foresee something so simple as a minor replacement of a leaking core that should take 20 minutes and maybe, just maybe, four bolts to remove, but instead turn it into a process whereby you have to disconnect the battery so that you don't accidentally deploy the airbags, then you have to disconnect the airbag, take the entire steering wheel assembly off, just so that you can gain access to a couple of bolts that need to be removed before you can remove the other bolts on the top of the dashboard so that you can disconnect all of the heater and refrigerant hoses so that you can replace the damn coil? Can anyone explain that to me?
I was on IMDB today and noticed that the lovely Elizabeth Mitchell and the old guy have the same birth date only a year apart. Is there no justice in the world?
I've got a year's free subscription to Starz from Dish Network, so I watched Zombieland here a while back. Emma Stone is incredibly hawt in that film. Guns, attitude, and black eyeliner... can't get much better than that... and when she did the whole Annie Potts thing? Classic. So I go on IMDB and find out that she's all of 23. Now I feel like a lecherous old bastard. But if you're reading this Emma... I can get over that given the right circumstances. ;)
Oh.. also they've added FX to my package. I'm kinda digging Lights out, and Justified. Did I mention that Catherine McCormack and Natalie Zea are both rather lovely ladies? If either of you are reading this... just forget about that thing I said about Emma... She's way too young for me anyway *whistles innocently* (Ummm... Emma? Just forget you read this part, I'm really not that old and I have it on good authority that men don't even get interesting until they reach 35, so here in about 10 years I'll be REALLY interesting. See what you've still got to look forward to?)
Oh... and in closing TDub... answer your damn email!
Today's mystery lyric: (Remember the rules folks, no online searching of the lyrics, if you don't know it, you don't have the answer!)
Say nighty night and kiss me
just hold me tight and tell me
you'll miss me
While I'm alone and blue as can be...
Answer to last lyric: Way Cool Jr. by Ratt. Way to go JennyLu!
