Random thoughts and updates from my life.
Keep It Simple
I’ve recently discovered that compared to most people, I like to keep my food simple. I don’t mean that I don’t like fancy food or expensive dinners. I’m talking about condiments. When it comes to food that is often served with a wide selection of condiments, I prefer to keep it simple. Hamburger? Mayo and tomato. Hotdog? Mustard. Sandwich? Mustard, maybe mayo but never both. Everyone else likes to load up on condiments. I like to taste what I eat, not the accessories to what I eat.
If You Don’t Like Football, Skip This Section
Last time I wrote about football, I predicted the Irish would be just good enough to let Charlie keep his job. I was wrong. Charlie lost his job and Notre Dame hired Brian Kelly, the former head coach of undefeated Cincinnati. I think Notre Dame made the right choice. Brian Kelly is the right guy for Notre Dame right now.
The Colts are 13-0. We’ve been here before, though. Every time the Colts start strong, they do something to screw it up in the playoffs. I don’t expect them to blow it, but I’m not getting myself too jacked up just yet. However, they have been there to save my football weekends every time the Irish blew it on Saturday. So, thanks for that.
If I went back in time and purchased a carton of milk two days before its expiration date and then brought it back with me past its expiration date, would it still be good?
The holidays are always busy for everyone, but they’ve been especially so for me. Usually things slow down for me at work around this time, but it has only been getting busier and busier. I’m completely exhausted. It doesn’t help that I haven’t even begun my Christmas shopping. Thank god for the Internet.
Guys, it’s almost 2010. Man, did the year fly by or what? It’s been a good ‘round here on the old blog. I rededicated myself to the blog and I’ve kept my promise. I’ve missed a couple posts in that time and tweaked some of my original ideas, but I think we can all say that things around here are better than they ever have been. Thanks for reading, everyone. Now I just need to figure out how to write posts that get you guys fired up enough to post comments.
Also, I heard James Brown on the CBS NFL show say the words, “…in the oh ten draft.” Oh ten? Nope. It’s two-thousand ten.
Why do people only specify the type of murderer you are if you are an axe murderer? Nobody is ever called a “handgun murderer” or “vehicle murderer” or “spoon murderer.” Only axe murderers get the modifier. If I was a different type of murderer I’d be pissed.
