The Loneliness of Moving and The Tasty Taco of Desire

It’s tough to watch the news right now.  You know that there is probably no hope for anybody that has been abducted by ISIS.  They have no respect for human life, and will do exactly what they say if they don’t get what they want.  The problem is that the more and more money that you give to them the stronger they become.  It’s a tough situation to be in.  Easy solution is don’t travel to where ISIS occupies land.

How many other teams in the NFL have been accused of doing things that tamper with the game over the years?  Belichek and Brady’s egos are enormous and there is probably some truth to this nonsense deflategate.  It’s not very often that I cheer for the Seahawks, but this will be one of those years.  That will be the last time that I talk about this.

You accumulate an awful lot of useless things over the years at a household. Loose change and random pieces of paper seem to be the biggest culprits.  The Bank of Canada probably had to produce 3% more nickels because of our household.

Sara owns so many comic books.  This seems to be a staple to being a geek.  There is a geek guidebook that states that you must at least own 347 comic books involving 74 different characters to receive your next badge of honour.

There are things that might be a fad that is a good thing.  Having local businesses sprouting up and being successful is a great thing for a community.  Even though people are trying out new things because that’s kind of the hip thing to do.  I can’t think of a bad thing that it does.  It has allowed the little guys to open businesses and do their own thing.  Corporations are having a difficult time adjusting.  Keep trying new stuff.  Keep being smart about how you shop and socialize.

We leave for the Philippines over the next couple of weeks.  Yes, we know, be careful, you have heard about people getting in trouble over there.  I am pretty sure I have heard this with every country that we have visited.

I watch the price is right everyday at lunch.  I love that show.  You have no idea how people are going to react to being called up or when they win.  It’s one of the few shows that it’s an actual unscripted response to winning something.

It’s funny seeing all the tweets by Canadians making fun of the States for their big snow storm that has hit the east coast.  It’s also a bit creepy that a lot of Americans sent out requests to cuddle in Kijiji during the snow storm.  The majority were males.  That’s exactly what a woman wants to do.  Go up to a single guys apartment that she doesn’t know, and hang out and cuddle at his apartment during a blizzard.  Sounds like a Law and Order episode waiting to happen.

We have been watching multiple documentaries about people that hike the Appalachian Trail and Pacific Crest Trail.  They might as well call the documentaries.  Dirty Hiker Hippies that do an awful lot of drugs and hike sometimes.  They need to interview some more of the people that are there to actually hike.

The Grammy nominations this year aren’t nearly as bad as years past.  For Rock album of the year this year they have the following.  Beck – Morning Phase, Black Keys – Turn Blue, Ryan Adams – Ryan Adams, Tom Petty – Hypnotic Eye, and U2 – Song of Innocence.  U2 could release sounds of dogs barking and be up for album of the year.  Also for those that thought that Ryan Adams was supposed to be Bryan Adams you should feel ashamed.

When you DJ an event and another DJ comes up to the booth and decides to give you pointers on what songs to play it’s tough to respond.  You realize that he is an older gentlemen and doesn’t really know the crowd well and the song that he has suggested is going to bomb, but you don’t want to be a dick.  If you play his song he is more then likely going to come up again.  If you decide to not play his song he will be angry and might say something to the people that hired you.  It’s a choose your own adventure that has a death in both instances.

ZZ Top is one of those bands that has lost flavour over the years.  Sharp Dressed Man at one point of my life was a song that didn’t just make me think of Don Cherry and his ridiculous suits.

There are quite a few people that pick out things in the garbage in our townhouse complex.  I threw out cardboard one minute, and then went back our to throw out more cardboard and it was gone.  “Look at these boxes honey.  Just think of the possibilities that we have with this box that once held a slow cooker.”

You will never meet a person more angry then the person looking for a laptop to purchase with a normal size shift button on their laptop.

Block Three has a beer called The Loneliness.  It’s a Russian Imperial Stout that is 8.7%.  It’s terrific in every way.  Including the name.

Spiderman your quips aren’t funny.  Your stupid little gags when you shoot your web and stick someone to a wall suck.  You are about as fresh as Gilbert Gottfried and Carrot Top on a Wednesday night at the Luxor in Vegas.

I did think Quicksand was going to be more of a worry then it actually is when I was a child.

There is nothing worse then preparing to move.  Sometimes you talk to people who like weird things.  Like, I like cleaning or I like shoveling snow.  Nobody likes moving.  You kind of get mad at yourself for finding stuff that you now know would never get used again.  Why did I keep this 15% off a new swimming pool coupon?

There are mild taco kits at the grocery store.  I still can’t get over this.  You don’t deserve to eat tacos if you get the mild ones.  Just cook the ground beef and put it in a shell.  You can only have iceburg lettuce and mild cheddar cheese as well.  You get no taste.  No taste for you.
