& we're now on 'worst-baseball-team-ever' watch
Re: Babies and chickens -
From your mouth, I hope.
I'm afraid, though, that the Red Chickens may be thinking that Babies will blame the Blue Chickens only for financial hardship and they will ride to permanent power on the ensuing anger.
“News: The 'human composting' bill is dead for now.” -- Zorn
Don’t lose hope, for an alternative to human composting is the somewhat more present and permanent idea of human taxidermy – have the local street-corner taxidermist stuff and preserve your corpse at death to be remembered through all ages in life-like 3D – stuff Uncle Jed and Aunt Mary holding serving plates standing by the entrance door to your home with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres for mourners as they filter in for a somber celebration of his/her life, for example. This way survivors have a continual life-like image to remember him/her by every time they come-and-go; it is useful … and because it is legal, there is no need for new legislation -- the party can start anytime!
MUCH better crops of Tweets this week when compared to last week's abysmal offering. Particularly like the Exorcist, Optician, and Crow tweets
So disappointing to read that the human composting bill is dead in the Senate. Wondering if Senator Simmons would share the identities of those who voiced opposition to the bill. Sincere letters explaining how meaningful and respectful such an option would be, even from non-constituents, might be helpful.
Theater vs Theatre
I think movie theater vs live theatre is pretty much a done deal these days.
I agree that it would be nice to see the Denver Nuggets win the NBA title this year. Their best player, Nikola Jokic, is a joy to watch. He's a 7 footer who can handle the ball like a point guard and it seems like he would rather make a pass than take a shot. It is rare to see such an unselfish player in the NBA. Go Nuggets!
Given the polls about being a stickler, I gotta be one myself: That's not an Oakland A's hat in the toilet. That's a hat with a generic A.
You touched a nerve when you mentioned banana splits. Many many years ago when I was 15 I worked at an ice cream/hamburger joint as an underaged and untrained server.
A trucker showed up one afternoon and ordered a banana split. I had one banana which I cut lengthwise as well as a good part of my finger. I was bleeding heavily into the banana boat.
I wrapped my finger around a towel and finished making the split. I noticed the split was very red so I added extra strawberries. With bleeding finger wrapped in a towel under the counter I served him the bloody split.
He ate the whole thing and left me a decent tip. I broke numerous health codes and I hope to this day the trucker was okay and NEVER acquired a taste for blood.
I got the finger bandaged and it eventually healed.
I never made or ate another banana split which I think was a good idea for everybody!
My favorite sound bite from the National dialog leading up to the Affordable Care Act was from a town hall meeting when an attendee said "Keep your government hands off of my Medicare."
A full contradiction in just one sentence.
Long before the dangers of unproteced sun exposure were known, "to lay out" or "laying out" (as we called it when I was young) was very popular. I think it is the correct term when describing that particular activity.
Those Church of Satan folks need to pick a new name that is slightly more reflective of their beliefs. Provocative, much?
Recent deaths: Tina Turner, Private Dancer, Sam Zell, grave dancer. One is a goddess, the other, another billionaire who thinks if they know about money they know about everything. One made me cry; it was not Sam Zell.
Think I'll head to the "Olde Koffee Shoppe" and relax and digest all this.
What's "attempted" by the murder of Crow(e)s?
Maybe Eric should have said the human composting bill is buried for now?
