Last week a number of odd thoughts came to mind and passed. I can't even remember them all. Regardless, in my opinion, none of which were worth their own thread. I'm sure I'm not the only one this happens to. So if you like, clear out some of the junk thoughts and pointless stories from your own lives.

I've got three so far. I made a note of another one but can't find the notebook.

1) Twice last week a person at work said to me, "I love the Fall." And I said, "The fall of what?" One, rightly, called me a smart ass. The other said, "I don't get it."

2) The word conjugal came up in conversation last week and I don't know why but I thought of the phrase Chili con Jugal and the word Conjugalations! Then the Spanish phrase Vaya con Dios was corrupted into Vaya con Carne and Vaya con Jugal. I'm not sure what to make of any of that except I may have been jungry at the time.

3) I wanted to buy a new gun but the local FFL dealer wouldn't even get close to the price the his competitor across the river quoted. So instead I went to the FLGS at the mall and bought The Isle of Doctor Necreaux for $9.99. It was compulsive spending. I haven't taken it out of the store bag yet but the purchase urge was satisfied.

4) I've had Hair of the Dog on an endless earworm loop for 4 hours.

5) Hair of the Dog has been replaced by Freddie King's Goin' Down.... I mean as an earworm.

I have had the words 'sphenoid' and 'sesamoid' running laps in my brain. Not sure why, but they're quite fun to say.

I have so many odd thoughts all the time.

For example, today I thought about the way people talk to each other on the phone. The caller usually explains who he/she is before the talk begins. In a regular conversation, this isn't necessary because people can see each other. It made me think of Friend A walking up to Friend B and saying, "Hi, this is [name]" before beginning the conversation.

The other situation: When Friend A doesn't introduce him/herself and just begins talking, Friend B says, "May I ask who's talking?"

For the last 35 or 40 years I have this recurring desire to comment every time I see a redhead in the company of family that doesn't have red hair. I have an almost overwhelming desire to ask if they know Ferd Berffle.

If the redhead answers no I still have this urge to ask if his or her parents are named Frank and Fannie. Actually, I confess... I have asked that exact question on more than one occasion. Probably at least 50 times. One time someone nearby laughed. That single laugh made four decades of Farkel Fixation worth it.

Odd thoughts...okay, here you go:

1. I just bought new underwear. I've been considerering donating my old underwear to Goodwill.

2. You can buy a "family pack" of nearly anything--syrup, assorted potato chips, sodas--but not condoms.

4. What happened to 3?

5. If a ninja stabs you, could you call it a "Ninjury?"

3. Oh, there it is!

In this world of internet savvy kids just using Wiki or something to find the answers to questions on their school assignments, a good solution is to take a picture, or painting, like this one:


and ask, who's the guy on the bearskin saddled black horse with the feather in his hat?

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

1) The other day I was just about to buy some beef jerky I’d seen on TV, then I suddenly remembered that this was the brand that, when you eat it, you get the crap beaten out of you by Sasquatch, so I put it back. Thank goodness for those truth in advertising laws.

2) I recently got a gut-level education about the meaning of the words "pandemonium", "cacophony", and "Chaos Theory": I took my kids to Chuck E. Cheese on Saturday night.

3) Isn't Mother Nature wonderful! If it hadn’t been for Germany’s extensive groves of coconut trees and vast tracts of cacao bushes and sugar canes, some anonymous hausfrau would never have had the ingredients available to create the first German chocolate cake.

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

The German Chocolate Cake was created by an American with the last name of "German" and entered in a baking contest of some sort. It is technically named "German's Chocolate Cake" and has been mangled by the passage of time to simply German Chocolate Cake.

I once read an article in Macworld Magazine, circa 1985.

In the article, the author says that he managed to hook his green/black monochrome Macintosh IIe monitor with a UHF/VHF receiver...

...and he watched Moonlighting.


I am still intensely jealous of that.


I could never get it to work.






Also. Get the hell off my lawn.

Probably thinking of Black Forest Torte/Cake . That is most likely of German origin.

Huh-UH!

Who says we didn't?

As for my wierd thought, well... I've often wondered if it would be considered bad form to compliment a woman on her breasts. As in "Good morning... your boobs are looking lovely today."

If given the choice between the world's best peach and a pretty good nectarine, the nectarine wins out everytime. There's something about the fuzzy skin of a peach that puts a shiver down my spine like nails on a chalkboard, odd considering I eat kiwis whole.

ANSWER: YES!
So I get this right, its ok to compliment your hair, clothes, shoes, or general appearance (ie "You look lovely today"), but complimenting boobs (and by extension, butt) is not cool.

You walk on foot up to a house on a Walkway.
You drive in a car up to a house on a Driveway.
Simple.

The parkway system was originally state controlled for use in parks only, the access to state parks. Parkways. This was actually an effort to reduce the number of black people in state parks, as most of them were so poor they had to take the bus. Hence, up until a few years ago, busses were not allowed access on parkways. You will find in some states, parkway traffic is still restricted to control traffic flow as the surrounding highways all were created with the capacity assuming busses were not on parkways.
