Another great idea for a TV show

They should have made a TV show based on the movie "High Fidelity". Rob, Barry, and Dick are such great characters. Base the show around the on-again, off-again relationship between Rob and Laura. Use as many of the same actors as possible. That would be great.

Yes, I know the movie is based on a book by Nick Hornby.

The end of an era

You know, South Park has got to be on the downside of the peak. I'm not laughing at the jokes as much as I am laughing at how fucking stupid the plots can be sometimes. I think that dog needs to be put to sleep.

Oh, and I really hate those damn Enzyte commercials. Ever since day one. They fucking annoy me.

Interesting Facts

Lexus is a Japanese company.

Pastrami is made from beef.

Henry Ford invented the moving assembly line while working as a watch repairman. The assembly line allowed his place of employment to reduce the amount of time needed to make repairs, and subsquently lead to his termination from that position because it lowered the amount of money his boss could charge for the repairs.

Ford is also responsible for creating the modern weekend by instituting a five-day, forty-hour work week.

Having cake and eating it too

If you're going to consider buying a cake for someone, but decide not to, don't tell that person. He's better off not knowing.

On holiday, far away

Every time I go somewhere, I always bring way more shit that I think I need but never use, and I always forget something. Sometimes, I wonder why I bother going anywhere at all.

The daily commute

Three things I noticed driving back and forth to work today. You know, besides the idiot drivers who should have their vehicles taken away.

Uno: The Office Depot that went out of business on the corner of 45th Street and 13th Ave South is coming back. Why? There's a reason it closed. No one went there. And I won't go there. If I need office supplies, I'll go to Office Max, just one block east and one block south.

Dos: Yesterday was April 1st, which means the start of road construction season. The signs are already up. And the City of Fargo plans to work on 45th St between 13th and 23rd Avenues South. That interferes with me driving to work. So I have to get my ass out of bed earlier. Damn them.

Tres: Those huge steel beams I saw out the north window at IHOP on Easter Sunday. No idea what they were then. Drove those same beams again today, they were for the new Scheels. The one that took them 7 years to build. Well, actually 5 years of a sign saying "Future Site of Scheels" and 2 years of building.

But it's interesting if you think about it. How a street intersection can look so different, depending on the direction you're approaching it from.

And if you bother to take the time to read this, and all of my posts, you'll notice that it's my one-year blogging anniversary. Just saying...
