decent blogs, or other crap?

a few interesting blogs found amongst the sales crap and anime-obsessed schoolgirl blogs:

phillip rauls photolog

how cool would it be to be this guy?


one of the topics advertised in the synopsis reminded me of nj's quest for interesting facial hair. therefore, this is included mostly as a service to him......and it's pretty amusing otherwise.

helpful hemorrhoids info

just kidding.

for operator assistance......

i like some of the images this blogger has tracked down.

(and yes, i currently feel the need to wave my hands in the air like i just don't care.)

written in chalk

okay- so i didn't randomly stumble upon this one. one of my favorite college roommates was talking about needing a creative here it is.


with that out of the way, i suppose i should blog about something the fact that ticketmaster recently sent me an email alerting me to the fact that hanson will soon perform in myrtle beach. (unless they've already performed- i'm a little behind when it comes to checking my email.)

i didn't read the email too closely, but i'm sure i have to work that night. however, to simulate the concert experience, i have decided to teach my alumni at school how to sing "mmmbop"....well, the chorus, anyway, as it's all i know. (that's my story and i'm sticking to it.)

anyway, picture a bunch of 3, 4, and 5 year olds singing "mmmbop" in front of my current two year olds, who will undoubtedly scream appreciatively. (nothing like a little seperation anxiety, let me tell you.)

all i have to do is pour apple juice into shotglasses and dig up some blonde wigs and plastic instruments, position "scalpers" outside the door to my classroom, and we're good to go.


in other news, something quite unsettling happened on the way to work this morning: my "service engine soon" light came on. my gas cap was loose, and i can't seem to tighten it completely, so i'm hoping that's what's at the root of this vehicular drama.

just in case, i believe i'll be paying my mechanic a visit tuesday for an oil change i need anyway. while he's at it, i'll have him check to make sure nothing's in danger of falling out/blowing up. if it still misbehaves after that, then perhaps a *gulp* visit to the dealership will be in order.

not that i actually have time to deal with all of this, mind you, but as i've said before, onto every car a little crap must fall sometimes.

speaking of crap, the video music awards are on now.

maybe we'll get lucky and something exciting and original will happen during the broadcast.

or maybe not.

sorry, but thats the best in car advice i can offer. as far as advice on all thoughts hanson...'dont, just...dont.'

duff said...

duffbert: as backwards as this state can be at times.....that's a damn good question.

bricotrout: i haven't looked....but i haven't deleted the email either. why? you wanna go?

mysterio: hmmm...i shall have to take your advice to heart....once i figure it out.

Hanson. They still exist? Do they still look and sound like sisters instead of brothers?

P.S. "Michael Jackson and Bubbles" is going to give me scary dreams. Now that's crap.

duff said...

they still exist, and i believe they're all of legal drinking age now, too. i didn't actually follow the link to their official website, so, for all i know, they could look like 300-lb. black women with bright red hair.

or like michael jackson.....


Madge said...

so they really might be sistas, for all we know.

Nothing said...

Peter: If you could be stranded on a desert island with any woman in the world, who would it be?
Quagmire: Taylor Hanson.
Joe Swanson: Taylor Hanson is a guy.
Quagmire: [Laughs] You guys are yankin' me. "Hey, let's put one over on Quagmire."
Peter: No, he's actually a guy, Quagmire.
Quagmire: What? That's insane. That's impossible.
Quagmire: Oh God. Oh my God. I've got all these magazines. Oh God.

And for suitable irony...
