Lost the Remote

Dec 29, 2011 Author Guy

Went into the living room today and wanted to watch a show on the big flat screen. Wouldn’t you know that some jackass took the remote out of the living room? I can’t find it, so I can’t even turn on the damn TV, because the manual on/off switch is broken. So the TV is dark, I’m pissed, and there’s no remote to be found. FML.

Not a White Christmas Here

Dec 25, 2011 Author Guy

Last year we did have a white Christmas. It snowed for several days before Christmas and it snowed on Christmas Day, too. Not this year! The temperatures have not been below 35 degrees this winter.

We started the day out slow and easy, then we had to go to my mom’s house for dinner. She is a great cook and takes this Christmas dinner thing very seriously. So we all have to get dressed up nice, can’t be late, and have to make an extra effort to not get into an argument with anyone in the family so we don’t upset my mom and ruin her Christmas.

Busy Week for Big Brown

Wow – it seems like every day this week I have had a package delivered to my doorstep by UPS. I bet the driver is about sick of driving down my street by now. I have seen the truck in my neighborhood as late as 8:30 pm, delivering the packages in the dark. I know this is their busiest time and after Christmas a lot of them will be out of work. But it is pretty cool to know that you can get a package from your house to mine in about 1 day, if you are willing to pay the price, no matter where in the U. S. that you live.

Kids Movies

Dec 13, 2011 Author Guy

Do you ever think about how much movies made for kids have changed over the years? For the most part, computers and computer generated graphics have made it a lot faster and easier to create animated movies and special effects. The story lines have changed a lot and so have the soundtracks.

One thing I really don’t understand is why do they hire the big name celebrities to do the voices on animated movies? If you never see the celebrity and they don’t have to move or do stunts, who cares who is actually reading the lines? Why do they pay the high dollar actors and not give the entry level talent a chance to make some money and do the “acting”?

Steak and Lobster

Dec 7, 2011 Author Guy

Holiday dinners always seem to be based on turkey or ham. What is up with that? Why don’t we celebrate Christmas dinner with some great T-bone steaks and lobsters? That’s what I’m talking about! Enough with the turkey, people! I want steaks – big, think grilled steaks are my idea of celebrating!
