Week's End Miscellany #2

It's Friday again, and that means it's time for the next installment of Week's End Miscellany. This is a bit where I wrap up the week, give a possible preview to next week, and parenthesis the weekend. (Aye, I used "parenthesis" as a verb.)

1. A 1985 future projection from Ebony magazine of what Michael Jackson would look like in the year 2000. Personally, I see Lando Calrissian.

2. I'm not 100% sure whether or not I like the Bath & Body Works Wild Honeysuckle anti-bacterial deep cleansing hand gel that sits on my desk, but I think it smells better than the nasty old weird soap from the restroom.

3. Today is my mother-in-law's birthday. We're going out for supper tonight.

4. (I'm going to be helping William move furniture tomorrow, and then play poker.)

5. I'm on #105 on my iPod quest, Long List of Heartaches, by the Grascals.

6. My wife just brought me a Diet Cherry Limeade from Sonic to work for me. She's so sweet. I'm still sitting here and working on median ditch calculations.

7. I hung up my undergrad diploma behind my desk just a few minutes ago. I still need to get a frame for the graduate one, but I think I'll stick to simple and cheap, as opposed to crazy expensive.

8. I'm growing very frustrated with my cable company. I've issued the ultimatum that if they don't bury my cable wire, which has been laying out on the ground for over a month, soon, then I will end my service. Furthermore, I've told them that I would be using all my social connections (Blogger, Facebook, Youtube) to warn others about the poor service to expect and advise them to go with a different provider for their internet needs.

9. I recently watched the movie Push. I didn't really expect anything great, but I thought the special effects would be rather cool. Turns out, I was sort of right and wrong. The storyline was okay, but slightly ridiculous, especially the Screamers. The Shadows reminded me of someone burning Bronze. The Pushers were like Steel burners. I'd recommend the movie if you're bored and have watched everything else you feel like watching.

Have a good weekend everybody. Remember to always floss (I'm hoping you already brush).

Anyone who uses "Miscellany" in a sentence is alright by me! Good show.

You seem a decent fellow... I hate to kill you... Sorry, I slip into "movie-quote mode" easily lately... what I meant to say was, you seem a decent fellow, I think I will "follow"... I've been itching for some new blogs to read lately, and it looks like you update quite frequently... plus, you're a Christian that reads fantasy books... a kindred spirit! I feared I was the only one!

Name's Dave, nice to meetcha.

Welcome to Rememorandom, David. It's always a joy to get another Follower, though I'm not sure if you ken what you're getting yourself into...

Hope you enjoy. Thanks!

How'd the poker go? Did you win. Man I love a game of Poker.

Does it still count as flossing if you use barb-wire?

Ha! Lando Jackson, appearing at a Mos Eisley Cantina near you. Book now or loose an arm later!

We decided to not play Poker and instead played a lovely game of Risk. Ahh, such fun. It's been a while since I've played Risk, and I happened to win, which made it even more enjoyable.

Krista said...

Congrats on winning Risk, Logan!

Man, you should see my Dad and brothers play Risk they have WAY too much fun, I think ;-) LOL!

Flossing is on my list of things to get to....;-)

Oh, yeah, I was also a little dissapointed with Push. I was hoping for something better...

But, hey, they all can't be like The Dark Knight!
