You're Once, Twice, Three Times a Random

Random 1:

I wonder where he stands on gravity and the earth being round... Ladies and gentlemen, Governor Rick Perry in Parade magazine:

"Q. Governor, do you believe that President Barack Obama was born in the United States?

A. I have no reason to think otherwise.

Q. That’s not a definitive, “Yes, I believe he”—

A. Well, I don’t have a definitive answer, because he’s never seen my birth certificate.

Q. But you’ve seen his.

A. I don’t know. Have I?

Q. You don’t believe what’s been released?

A. I don’t know. I had dinner with Donald Trump the other night.

Q. And?

A. That came up.

Q. And he said?

A. He doesn’t think it’s real.

Q. And you said?

A. I don’t have any idea. It doesn’t matter. He’s the president of the United States. He’s elected. It’s a distractive issue."

You had dinner with Donald Trump -- and I presume, his HAIR -- and you find the "debate" over the existence of President Obama's birth certificate a distraction?!

Do you think Trump just stared dreamily at Perry's perfect pate all through dinner? "I used to be the richest man alive and still I was unhappy. Why, oh why, can't I have hair like that?!"

Random 2:

For my Westie friend, Michele:

McDonald's McRubber Sandwich (McRib to some) has returned for a limited time. Get yours through November 14th. Not available at all locations. GACK.

Random 3:

Lars Ulrich of Metallica admits in the October 24th Newsweek that his biggest mistake was saying, "No." to Quentin Tarantino's request to choreograph his "Kill Bill" fight scenes to Metallica songs, including "Enter Sandman."


My best friend, Lauren, did that back in the early 90s to snippets of "violent" Saturday morning cartoons. All perfectly edited and timed. DAH dah dah dah DAH dah DAH dah dah dah dah dahhhhh. It was brilliant. I think of it whenever I hear "Enter Sandman." Laur, you should call Quentin and see if you can give him some ideas. :)

Off to never never land...

"Actor Patrick Swayze's wax figure is unveiled at Madame Tussauds in Hollywood, Calif., on Tuesday, Oct. 18."

He haunts me still.......

When It's Time to Change

You've got to rearrange...who you are and what your blog looks like!


Of the 12 website choices on my browser's pull down menu, my blog wasn't one of them. You know what that means... I'm a total blogging slackass!

As usual, there's been mucho mucho stuffo going on, but I haven't felt compelled to share it with y'all. I know, I feel bad about that. But I've got to keep some things private, for various reasons. Anyone who knows my penchant for posting my every move on faceboook will find this statement somewhat startling. :)

But for you particularly curious folks, I'm a pretty happy camper. Just floating the usual mundane questions of who am I, why am I here, what's my passion, what will make me leap out of bed in the morning, how do I make a living doing something I love, just what IS that thing on my yellow shirt, and why are even the easiest relationships so difficult at times?

These seem like Magic 8 Ball questions, don't they?


I hope you're all happy and healthy. If you've become wealthy and wise, I'd gladly take a little of both, if you're sharing.

To be continued, my dear friends.................
