What's That In The Rearview Mirror?

Wow, it sure is tiny, what could it be? Oh, yeah, grade school! Procrastinator Junior graduated today!

It was a nice low key affair that seemed like it was over, just after it began. BTW, what does it mean when they "begin the beguine?" It sounds like a bloated penguin. Why don't they "begin the baguette," instead? Somebody might be hungry.

Oh, sorry, Paul Mercurio; "a beguine is a spirited ballroom dance."

Now it's on to junior high hi-jinks for him...and hopefully less volunteering and parental social interactions with yours introverted truly.

Thank you much for Junior's congrats and thank you for putting songs into my head, both good and bad. Now excuse me while I go blister in the sun.

Dammit! Beckeye stole my R.E.M.-related response. I have new-found respect for the girl.

And doesn't it piss you off every time you hear "Blister in the Sun" on those Wendy commercials? I don't want to think about blisters as I bite into my Wendy's single ...

"Dammit! Beckeye stole my R.E.M.-related response. I have new-found respect for the girl."

As long as her computer is functional, she is all-knowing and all-seeing. She just beat me to my favorite Homer Simpson quote and she probably didn't have to look it up, like I did.

Wendy's has really lost their direction since Dave Thomas has passed.

You have raccoons driving minivans, someone ruining Steppenwolf's "Magic Carpet Ride," a crappy whistling song that sounds like just like the same whistling theme for a men's dysfunction pill, and finally? A Violent Femme's song that has absolutely nothing to do with food (mmmm, blister-burgers, auuuuug).

Why? Because it's the most catchiest song ever, though as a song, it couldn't even sell burgers to starving people in Eritera. They should've at least gone with the Femme's take on the "SpongeBob SquarePants Theme."

I just find it odd that their corporate identity is now making the spiciest food possible. I HATED the whistling!

Speaking of Blister in the Sun, did I tell you that I met Gordon Gano at a bar? It was a brief encounter. He's actually friends with some friends of mine. I'm sure he wouldn't remember meeting me because he was pretty loaded.

Johnny Dollars,

That is odd that they've decided to fill the spicy niche, though I can appreciate that they're trying to distinguish themselves on the menu front.

They are rudder-less, however, when it comes to advertising and the latest with the Shakespearean company in the freezer-bit, is showing just how lost they are. I have to refrain from another rant about the whistling.


Why does that sound familiar?


Thank you!

Thank you and let me just say that he is very un-procrastinator like in his eagerness for the summer to be over so that he can go to junior high!
