I Muse

Talking about leaves as Bob did, I just use a lawnmower. That way, I don’t have to pick up anything. Just proves that he knows nothing so you might as well start asking me those questions.

I was watching a Chuck Norris movie where he barges into a group of people doing some good ole fashion square dancing. For some reason, I started thinking about how funny it would be to see Nazis doing some good ole fashion line dancing. There has got to be some sort of humor there, right?

Watched “Confess, Fletch” and really enjoyed it. Would rather watch a Fletch movie than anything from Marvel. Take that, fanboys/girls!

This year my birthday falls on Thanksgiving. The last time that happened, my day was completely ruined.

See, traditionally I watch at least one James Bond movie on my b’day. During the month, I watch at least half of them, but TRADITIONALLY ON MY B’DAY, I WATCH AT LEAST ONE.

Had the timing down right. Dinner at 3, leave at 4 get home at 4:30 and watch Bond. Except this time was different.

Seems there was a family from Nigeria that was going to be joining us for Thanksgiving dinner. They were told we ate at 3 and said they would be there.

There weren’t there at 3. Nor were they there at 4. Maybe they’d show up at 5? Nah. And my window for Bond had closed.

They finally showed up at 6. Their dinner was kept war in the oven and we all just sat around basically watching them eat. Someone did ask them how they celebrated Thanksgiving in their country which made me throw a full bottle of beer at their head. Idiot.

They finished their dinner, then there was the b’day cake. Candles, song, etc., etc. I declined since I wasn’t that hungry anyway so everyone else had their cake and then I was able to leave. Well past Bond time so it was quite a nice trip home.

Found out the next day that the folks from Nigeria took the rest of my cake home. Plus, in case you missed it, they made me miss by b’day Bond.

This year I have been assured that nobody from overseas will be joining us so I should be able to enjoy some Bond on that day. Right????

More Lunatic Ravings…

Stephen Johnson

The idea of building a website with Bob came from Stephen in the days of message boards and chat rooms. We settled on the name TheWeirdcrap.com and the rest is history. Retired since he hit the ripe age of 25, he spends most his time doing odd-jobs around the house and digging thru trash bins for "stuff that's still good." Stephen has contributed several short stories and hosted the "Lunatic Ravings" column since the beginning (1999). The idea of writing weekly columns came from Stephen before blogs or blog sites ever existed. So, I guess that makes him THE FIRST BLOGGER IN THE WORLD!!!
