Everybody Oughtta, or Sometimes...

Nice fractured title, right?

I just had a bunch of random ideas, thoughts and experiences. I have to light a spark under my writing hand so I thought I would go with these various ramblings.

Everyone ought to watch at least the last 10 minutes of Mr. Holland's Opus, a 1995 Richard Dreyfus film. You just need to do it. It will make you feel good.

We need to make up our minds in this country. One month, a whole lotta celebrities are making bold statements about being large and being good with it. Then the next month they're spokespeople for Jenny Craig. Talk about confusing signals. What's the message here, "stay happy being plus size until someone offers you a boatload of cash to lose the weight?"

AMC station will be broadcasting "Million Dollar Baby" this coming weekend. Intense story, great movie. Saturday night and Sunday night. Check your listings. Sounds like a commercial. Sorry.

I think a great political strategy has come to me. Next presidential election, we wait until maybe September of the actual election year. By then we are so bored with the main yo-yo's that we'd likely welcome anything fresh and exciting. And by that time pretty much anything would seem fresh and exciting. We'll have them kick off their campaign on Labor Day and they'll be elected for sure.

So much for cutting back on junk mail. I got 9, note that- 9 - of those unsolicited credit card offers this week alone. From 9 different banks/institutions. I sent them all back, except I mailed them in the wrong envelopes.

Made me feel better, alright?

I fully expect to see a WaMu commercial on Sesame Street any day now. WaMu. Formerly Washington Mutual. WaMu. They have a website called Tells you the brain-level they're marketing to, huh?

Things That Have Been Amazing This Week So Far:

  1. The amazing fuel economy of the Hyundai Sonata

  2. The amazing results of ProActiv acne medicine

  3. Some lady actually said the following: "Britney Spears is an amazing mom". Really. She said that.

  4. SheerCover make-up. Amazing coverage.

  5. Verizon's rate plans. Amazing rate plans priced right.


  1. I don't think I get AMC (stupid satellite co.)

    It's people like the one referring to Britney Spears as a good mom that scare me: They can vote! Heaven help us.

  2. I can just see the tag at the end of Sesame Street: today's show was brought to you by the letter A, the number 8, and the good friends at WaMu. Let's hope that it doesn't end up in Elmo's World. It's annoying enough.

  3. I ♥ Mr. Holland's Opus! :)

    ProActiv IS amazing...I just wish it was cheap! ;)

    Yep, we like Verizon! :)

    its always nice to read your entries lippy. they always make me feel better. need to see more of them

  5. Yes you are right about "amazing" in THOSE instances. But I've also heard "amazing" used when the special recipients from Extreme Home Makeover see their new homes, when a hero is recognized, and when there are no other words to describe the most beautiful sunset or shooting star you've ever seen.


  6. I love that you did that with the credit card solicitations. That's a great idea.

    Have an amazing weekend, Jimmy! (Sorry, I just had to... :D )

  7. What an amazing entry! ;)

    Love ya babe!


I love comments. I won't lie about that!
