Hint From Abelard

When you’re at Red Hot & Blue, go ahead and order a salad.

It gives you a place to put your rib bones.

Lovely Rita…

For reasons unknown, Dear Old Dad and I are watching season one of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” on DVD. At the first scene, I”m all like, you know who that broad is, right? He’s like, no, I have to see her again. I’m like, you know Rita from “Dexter?” He’s all like, no way that’s her. Unless she got a nose job. I’m all like yuh huh that is too her.

Thank goodness there’s Google.

In 1996, [Julie] Benz auditioned for the role of Buffy Summers in the series Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997), but lost out to Sarah Michelle Gellar. However, she was offered a small role the vampire Darla in the pilot episode. Her performance was so well-received that her part was expanded to a few more episodes. The role helped launch her career.

This is a rare raw talent of mine that I have yet to put to any good use. If I say it’s them, it’s them. I wish I could make some munny with it. But it’s useless.


…Johnny Cash sure was a pain in the ass on a train, wasn’t he? “Hey, Porter! Hey, Porter!”

Car Repair Day

Esther Sedano is my 1999 Chevy Lumina that as of today has 60,233 miles on her. Today she’s in the shop, and, uh-oh, the mechanic is calling. On the phone with them now. What the hell did they find?

Ouch. She needs some work:

  • Change the fuel filter
  • Rotate tires
  • Change radiator hoses
  • Flush cooling system
  • Fix leak in power steering system
  • Replace pressure hose in the steering column
  • Flush power steering system
  • Clean, adjust rear brake
  • Flush the brake system

Well, hell. I mean, she’s paid for. Ya know?

Yeah, we’ll be splitting this work up a bit.

You Bet Your Sweet Bippy

Saw a guy nearly lose his lunch today in the deli near my office. I sure am glad he was able to get a grip on that Styrofoam tray before he dropped it.
