I Hear Marmaduke's Doing Lemonade Commercials.

As I've mentioned before, I like Kool-Aid. So the other day as I was perusing the powdered drink aisle at my local grocer (aka. Meijer), I noticed that the Meijer brand is being endorsed by everyone's favorite comic strip cat. Of course, I had to stop to see what he had to say.

Oh man! Classic Garfield. You've taken that old saying and replaced the word bowl with the word drink. You are one clever cat.

Dear sweet Jesus!!! This one took me a little bit to get, but then I realized that grape had replaced great. Pure comedy genius! You are one funny feline.

Ummm. Ok...I guess you replaced the word orange with orange. Maybe, you replaced fruit with color. I gotta be honest, Garf, this is not your best joke. This next one's gonna be killer. I just know it.

What? "Your best friends are strawberries"? That doesn't make sense. You've not only passed on saying "this should be 'berry' good", or even "I can't wait to put my straw in this" (feel free to take notes, Garfield). You want me to believe that you have somehow gotten this inanimate piece of fruit to befriend you? I have lost all respect for you.

I hate you.

I'm a Survivor

I have made it through the first two rounds of the NCAA Tourney and St. Patrick's Day, and I've learned some things.

1. Three days of power drinking is still as fun as it was in college.
2. It's much harder to recover from, than it was in college.
3. Nothing soaks up a hangover better that greasy food. Thank you Long John Silver.
4. Not only can I take a punch, I can take a book to the face the very next day.
5. Bruce Pearl is awesome. Actually I already knew that.

I'm Back....and Happy!

"You haven't posted in a while", you said. "Mind your own damned business", I responded. But now I'm back.

Also I'm super excited about this weekend. "Why?" you may ask, and I will tell you.

1. I've got 5, count 'em 5, days off.

2. Saturday is St. Patty's day. I enjoy beer with food coloring in it, makes it like a magical potion.

and the 3rd reason.....March Madness is here. So during my 5 days off I will watch so much basketball that I may go crazy, and drink so much beer during that time that I will in crazy.

So who am I cheering for? Tennessee is the obvious choice, but I also have to admit that I am also pulling for Miami of Ohio.

"Why?" you may ask. "You're awfully damned nosy aren't you?" I reply. But I'll tell you anyway. Coach Charlie Coles is insane. I'm not talking "really into the game" insane. I mean full blown "naked in the front yard" kind of insane. I'm not going to lie....he scares me, but darn it if I can't get enough.
