So, I had just gotten home from work and changed. I was sitting in my recliner drinking a Bud Light and eating some Tropical Trail Mix. Tropical Trail Mix consists (allegedly) of dried pineapple, banana, raisins, papaya and coconut. As I was consuming my tasty snack, I came across this post over at Baboon Pirates. I slowly look at the packaging and find: product of Philippines and Thailand. Whew, that was close. I almost consumed dried fruit from an Asian country with low food standards.
Barring anything unveiled at SHOT 2010 I haven’t seen yet the firearms industry is in a great big rut. If you want over priced ARs and .380 pistols you should be happier than a fat kid locked in a candy store. If you want something else, too bad. Seems to me the only folks thinking outside the box these days are FN and Kel-Tec. I really thought the sunset of the gun ban in 04 would lead to new and exiting things, not everyone making the same damn gun.
Don’t get me wrong. I own and AR and am maybe looking to get another (not in 5.56) but come on. I have to agree with Tam on this one.
Since Monday pretty much sucks unless you don’t have to work, I will be changing Happy Friday to Happy Monday in an effort to make Monday suck a little less and also because Friday doesn’t really need any help.
In my humble opinion there were only about 3 or 4 good commercials during the game. This is ok, because the game itself was great. No, I’m not just saying that because the Saints won. I really didn’t care one way or the other, but was kind of glad to see the underdog win. The entire Budweiser advertising staff needs to commit hari kari for the millions of dollars they wasted on mediocre commercials. Snickers on the other hand scored a win with the commercial where Betty White got tacked.Doritos also pulled off a funny with the little boy slapping the would be boyfriend. The other commercial that got me laughing was this one with Megan Fox. Also, it had Megan Fox.
I just finished watching Zombieland and it was hilarious. If you have any sort of twisted, off, or sick sense of humor you will love this movie. Woody Harleson’s character is the best.
I just found out that one of my favorite authors passed away on the 18th.
Robert B Parker wrote some really great detective stories. My favorites are the Jesse Stone novels, but all of his books are terrific. He is also well known for the Spenser novels that led to the television show Spenser for hire (the books are way better than the show). Here is a link to his website.

So we’re a whopping 29 days into the new year and my department has already worked 235 accidents. That doesn’t even count the minor fender benders that don’t require a report, it’s 235 crashes that required a wrecker, ambulance, or both. Judging the way some people drive around here I’m thinking it would be cheaper for insurance companies to give free driving lessons.
Going to be a good year for the body shops.
