My Future

I saw one of those Magic 8-Ball toys the other day in a store; I hadn't seen one in a long time and thought they had been discontinued. On a lark, I picked it up and started asking it questions. "Will I ever find love again?" The answer: "Don't count on it" Well rats.   I kept asking questions and kept getting answers I didn't want to see.  Surely something good was going to happen to me!

Hopefully, I asked another question and got this:

What has the Microsoft e-mail program have to do with my winning the lottery?

Squidbillies Theme Song

While I've done a few reviews of movies and TV shows, I keep meaning to do more, but to be honest, they take a lot of time and especially if I want them to be truly original and worth reading.

I used to watch Squidbillies when I had cable, then thought the show had been cancelled, so I was surprised to see the newest episodes online. I've been d/l them to watch on my tablet and while it's not as funny now as it was when I first started watching it, it's still good for a grin now 'n then.

My favorite part is the theme song; this one is done by Billy Jo Shaver and is, IMHO, the best of all the renditions.  The lyrics match how I feel much of the time these days.

While I'm WAY behind on writing reviews, it's given me an idea for an easier topic/label to start doing: Theme Songs.

The Socks Personality Test

Your Socks Say You're Fascinating

You Are:

- Quite outrageous
- Very jolly
- A little bit different
- An awesome person 


At least it it didn't mention my obsession with them.

I had to pick one, but since they didn't have any white socks, I went with the purple.

The Big Hurt

I was looking for a specific bit of baseball trivia and a Google search lead me to Sports on Earth, but the link didn't work and I got this instead:

I DID manage to find an answer to my question.  Tom Glavin.

Livin' Thing - ELO

One of my most favorite songs from one of my most favorite groups.

The song begins talking about the exhilaration of falling in love, then the lows that follow the loss of that love. Love truly is a "living thing".

The Magic Button

My ex-wife should be glad I finally found that magic button she was always going on about.

Hobart KA7E Self-Cleaning Rotisserie

If I were rich and had a huge house and kitchen, I'd want one of these.  Shoot, I'd even cook up just a couple of chickens in it (or ribs,etc.) because of the self-cleaning feature.

The Necessary Forms

Sharknado 4

Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens is set to open at the end of this month.

I'm thinkin' it's GOTTA be good.

Why do I think that, you ask?

It has Gary Busey in it, that's why.

Jewish Drivers

I was just visiting a forum I frequent and while the purpose of the site is about lotteries and not cars,  threads often get side-tracked.  (OFTEN:  just last night I was reading a thread in a Cowboys forum and for some reason the discussion turned to Free Will.  Good Grief)

The topic was "What would be the first thing you'd buy after winning the lottery?" and when one member said he'd replace his old pickup that has 469,000 miles on it, some one asked him how he had managed that and after that, the thread was hijacked. 

I didn't include all of the truck's various mechanical problems in the screen shot of the reply, but it was a typo/misspelling that made me laugh.

I've never known Jewish drivers to be all that reckless or hard on vehicles, but if you say so....
