A Y-Chromoso-minute


Angela and Cathy wanted me to do this day-book thing Larry invented. (I know!) Normally I wouldn't do a meme or anything like this, but since they asked, I will do it, just because I'm so darn nice. Larry, I'm not trying to steal votes from you, because your Y-chromosomal post was very funny and can't be topped.

For Today: Thursday, April 30, 2009

.

Outside My Window... Cloudy. Really cloudy and misty - I believe it is a light drizzle.

.

I am thinking about... hmmmmmm….. Janet Reno.

.

I am thankful for… Foxes, and rabbits, and gophers and pigs and dogs and kitties.

.

From the kitchen... Nothing - I get nothing - I'm single. Actually I never eat before 3PM - it's a desert fathers thing. Speaking of - my dad would love this - whenever I called him, he told me in detail what he was doing, what he ate, what he was thinking, just like this meme datebook thing here. "Yeah hon, I just ate some fried chicken and made a little gravy for some mashed potatoes - those instant ones ya know - and I just had a little salad like your mom used to make with some french dressing - not the spicy type, and some milk, I was just gonna do dishes when you called."

.

I am wearing... Larry said, "jeans, sweatshirt, socks, boxer briefs…" Me too! (I also have a t-shirt and a scapular on underneath.)

.

I am creating... A lot of trouble. Lots and lots. But not deliberately - really - I say things and write things and paint things, and for some reason people get all pissed off. I'm also painting a picture of Mrs. Rabitowitz before I kill her.

.

I am reading... Pope Benedict's Jesus of Nazareth - again. Actually that is my new project that will never end. Otherwise - well - now days, for the last few years actually - I rarely read anything cover to cover - I think I have ADD. I have a dozen or more books at my feet that I pick up and read here and there - but I don't want to list them all for fear of intimidating my readers by my scholarship. (Keep laughing Cath!) Do you know I have never read anything by Ann rice? I started one novel and threw it out. I think the stuff she and Stephen King write are stupid - their crap may work occasionally for a film, but otherwise... Anyway - I don't like their stuff.

.

I am hoping... That I can get it together before I die.

.

Around the house... Larry said, "pfft! I’m a guy! Since when does a guy notice anything around the house?" True. Like I said, I'm single - so I just ignore the mess and change clothes when they wear out.

.

I am thinking about.... Still Janet Reno. But then I began to wonder about... never mind.

.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: I'll probably call Janet and see if she wants to do something. Otherwise - I don't have any plans - it's that ADD thing - I'd move on to something else as soon as I made them.
.

That's about it I guess. I know - it is not as good as Larry's - but that's alright.

  1. 1. There will be hell to pay if you kill Mrs. Rabitowitz.

    2. You spent a great deal of effort blacking around Columbo.

  2. I won't really kill her - she just had kids. That is just sort of a Jewish thing to say - like "I'm sticking my head in the oven if you kids don't behave."

    I found Cloumbo like that. Cool huh?

    Same reaction on Mrs. Rabitowitz...no harm to her please.

    Attempted to read Jesus of Nazareth, and it was too difficult to get into. I liked nearly everything else he had previously written.

    Ann Rice - I just read the memoir of her conversion to Christianity. I was killing time while having my car worked on a few weeks ago, and walked into a Border's Books. I picked her book up and read most of it in two hours. It was disapointing. She isn't able to articulate why she became a Catholic-Christian. Perhaps many people can't, but somehow I expected to read something convincing, or at least juicy - after all of her previous efforts.

  4. Ter: Actually, I did not laugh about your scholarship but I did laugh when you said you were going to kill Mrs. Rabitowitz.

    I'm sad that your Father did not also tell you about the last time he had a bowel movement. Seriously, my family of the perpetually constipated always shares that piece of critical information. I feel you've really missed out.

  5. Janet Reno? Why are you thinking about her? Hope she's not busy and can go out with you this weekend.

    Very amusing post :)

    Cute answers, but maybe you should just paint Janet Reno!

    I think my copy of Jesus of Nazareth is going to go the way of the Summa: to a friend. I don't have a sustained quiet that seems necessary for that, here. Or maybe I'm thick.

  7. Bravo!!

    I forgot to add I wear a scapular too.

    Because you mentioned Janet Reno, it's gonna be hard to get back to thinking of Ellen Ripley vs. Sarah Connor in a cage match...or maybe as a tag-team vs. Janet Reno. yeah, I like that one better.

    And you're getting my vote.

  10. Funny post!
    When Janet sent Elian back to Cuba I found the address of her apartment in DC and sent a letter to her, there, to complain.
    What was I thinking? My name must be in some file, somewhere.
    Conspiracy Theory....

  11. SF - Good for you - I wish she would have replied. Yeah - you are most likely on some rightwing conspiracy list.

  12. A portrait of both Janets would make adults cry. I'm afraid to go to sleep now.
