CA redemption Value -- 5¢

The great thing about gin? No stains.

Dinner consisted of some sort of half-assed noodle & vegetable stir-fry combination thing-y. (It was getting late. I was hungry.) After sitting down to eat, I thought, "Gee, a gin & tonic would go nicely with this." So I proceded to set up a glass with some ice, a wedge of lime, Schweppes ® tonic and Tanqueray®. Upon setting the glass on the tray table next to my dinner plate, I thought, "Gee, I should move this aside so I can comfortbly seat myself on the couch." Of course, while moving the tray table aside, I managed to slosh the freshly mixed beverage all over the tray table, the couch cushions, and the carpet.

I'd like to take this moment to thank Murphy for all the times my buttered bread has landed face down on the linoleum floor.

About half a roll of paper towels later, I managed to eat some dinner. Mmmm.. tasty noodles.

In other news, I checked John Kricfalusi's blog today and nearly did a spit-take on my monitor when I saw these Barber Shop pages.

If memory serves, one of the the first times I recall seeing profanity written down anywhere was in the local barber shop. Mom would give me $7 to bike on over to get my haircut. (Perhaps it's selective memory, but all I can recall in the magazine rack were copies of Road & Track and Field & Stream...) Anyways, I vividly recall the plaque on the wall that read, "If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit." Looking back on it now, all I can think of is, "Why use dazzle? Where's the alliteration in that?"
