More Randomness...

So, I’m flipping through the channels and stop at this scene of people having a verbal war of…um…words, not knowing what I’m watching. Turns out it’s some afternoon soap, but what made me laugh was these people are all serious yelling at each other about stuff this one gal did when she says with a straight face, “I didn’t mean for him to get hurt when I poisoned the guacamole!” That cracked me up. Who poisons guacamole? Isn’t that redundant?

Heard Lonestar’s new song “You’re Like Coming Home.” Not bad. Not great, but not bad. First song of theirs since “Amazed” six years ago that I don't automatically change the station…

Tonight there was a big hockey trade. The Boston Bruins desperately trying to right the ship traded their star player Joe Thornton to the San Jose Sharks for Brad Stuart, Marco Sturm, and Wayne Primeau. I’m surprised San Jose didn’t throw in a bag of pucks. This sounds like the kind of trade you’d read about on those hockey rumor message boards pitched by some wannabe general manager hockey pool enthusiast. The old rule is whoever gets the best player in a trade, wins the trade regardless of the amount of players going the other way. By that rule, San Jose made out like bandits. On a different note, imagine you’re Joe Thornton and you just found out your place of employment went from Boston on the East Coast to San Jose on the West Coast overnight…Taxi!!

Huh, look at that. The word ‘wannabe’ didn’t even get flagged by Microsoft Word as a spelling or grammatical error. That means it’s in the Word dictionary. So is the word ‘huh’…Huh, how about that…

More wailing and hand wringing about bad video games. Just pay attention to the ratings people – they’re there for a reason and “M” means the game is for mature, not 10 year olds. I still think it comes back to the parents to investigate what the kids are buying. On a different note, here’s a quote from the article I thought was kind of funny:
[In "Stubbs the Zombie," the lead character eats the brains of humans as blood splatters across the screen. "It's just the worst kind of message to kids," said Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Conn., who joined institute officials at a press conference announcing the group's 10th annual video game report card. "They can be dangerous to your children's health."]
What’s dangerous? Eating brains or playing the game? Where’s the editor to screen these articles for proper grammar? Maybe the editor is a zombie!

And last butt not least, here’s a new one. Longer needles are needed for fatter buttocks as injections aren’t reaching their mark. Here’s a quote:
[Fatter rear ends are causing many drug injections to miss their mark, requiring longer needles to reach buttock muscle, researchers said on Monday.
Standard-sized needles failed to reach the buttock muscle in 23 out of 25 women whose rears were examined after what was supposed to be an intramuscular injection of a drug.]
Unbelievable…well, not really if you take time to look around as you walk through a mall. Still, you might be a tad overweight when the needle can’t get through your ass fat to get the medication to where you need it. And what’s the solution to this quandary? Get more people to take better care of themselves? Oh no, we’ll just make longer needles. Is a 6 inch needle going to be the new happy meal toy at McDonalds?

It's pretty bad when an "improvement" to a song means you don't have to change the station anymore.
