How not to have a grape.... great day
Saturday, May 21, 2011 | Author: Dav

Here's my very own personal steps on how not to have a grape great day:

  1. Go to the store. See South African grapes on sale
  2. Spend 10 minutes trying to figure out which sack of grapes have the least mushed up grapes on the vine, only to settle for a prepacked tray
  3. Take grapes home
  4. Set grapes (in tray and cling wrap) on counter top, ohh and ahhh at the thought of eating these in front of the telly
  5. Peal off cling wrap
  6. Have grapes fall down the counter top to the floor in a cascade of luscious, juicy globes of goodness
  7. Dance away and backwards to avoid falling grapes, like they were globules of VX gas (See the movie 'The Rock' for vague reference)
  8. Mash and squish 10 - 15 grapes with step # 7 above
  9. Stop. Stare. Facepalm at mess
  10. Spend the next 20 minutes cleaning juice splatter from floor, cupboards and every-god-damn-where else
  11. Eat remaining 10 grapes
  12. Rue buying grapes

American effigies
Saturday, May 21, 2011 | Author: Dav

I don't really watch all that much TV, and god forbid if it was American Effigies (Idol, Latin!). The thing is, I was watching this documentary on TBM's and there was an advert for the American Idol finals.

Imagine my surprise when I saw this guy's photo:

Hey ma, look at me!

I've never heard him sing, but the only thing that comes to my mind when I look at that photo is Alfred E. Neuman. If you don't know who that is, then you're way too young!

Come on, look at the similarities!

What? Me worry? Only if I don't win in American Idol

Its hilarious that they've made that 'Reality TV' show last this long. What is it at now, Season 11? I can't even remember all of the Idols.

Camp America 3000
Tuesday, May 17, 2011 | Author: Dav

Has anyone ever watched this movie? America 3000. It must be, and this comes from watching Flash Gordon many, many times, the most camp-est (is that a real word?) movie ever!

I watched it, and of course I overanalyzed it by wondering what the females did if they had a male child (toss him out I guess?), how the male's reproduced (from tossed aside male children?) and if the females were hell bent on killing the males in wars, then why not fix the problem at the root, stop tossing out male kids maybe?

UNLESS! Unless they knew it was some how related to perhaps a 'rule of diminishing returns' that if they started killing males and / or male children, they wouldn't have any more breeding stock?

Uh, sir, I think that' way too much analysis

All in all, I enjoyed the movie enough to want to hunt down a copy of Flash Gordon for a great movie weekend.

Now where did I save that torrent application again.....

Kutcher replaces Sheen
Sunday, May 15, 2011 | Author: Dav

That's it, its official! Charlie Sheen's out, Ashton Kutcher is in.


Its a break from the norm, I know, but its all over the news!

Ashton Kutcher has like, a bajilion Twitter fans. I think the big thing producers from the Two and a Half Men sitcom are aiming for would be for him to be able draw in his large younger following to the series. Not to say its a great idea, but just how are they going to write him in?

I've never been a fan of the series, in fact I've only watched it on and off as it is. I never quite found it funny, then again I'm not a die hard Sheen fan as most of the hardcore viewers are (or were?).

What I'm sure of is that Charlie Sheen wouldn't be too happy to hear this. Ashton you've just made a new enemy, one with tiger blood and Adonis DNA.

Would be pretty good to see what goes on now online.

Naked . . . wrists
Tuesday, May 10, 2011 | Author: Dav

I frequently laze around the house sans watch. I've enough references to the current time as it is (wall clock, 2 phones with huge time displays, the TV, set-top box etc) that I rarely feel the need to wear a watch at home.

The thing is, sometimes I head off to lunch (this is mostly over the weekends) or off to something or another, and I realize that I've gone off without my watch.

For some odd reason, I find it weird not having a watch on but only when I'm out. Its a somewhat . . . . naked feeling. At the same time, when you're out somewhere, and you make that very natural wrist tilt to look at your watch, and then realize its not there. That's ok, till you catch a glimpse of a few people wondering what you're up to.

I think I'm starting to see a wrist watch as something to keep my wrist occupied.

Lets not talk about people with wrist watches that do EVERYTHING and also brew coffee.

Baristas have it rough
Monday, May 09, 2011 | Author: Dav

Have you ever taken time off to think about how rough your local coffee Barista has it?

He (or she) has to put up with line after line of pompous, pretentious coffee and tea guzzling drones, each with a unique but not almost on the menu order. I've always wondered how they cost and calculate revenue for a normal Chai latte when someone comes up to the counter and asks for half half cream with two pumps of Chai, one shot of expresso and a twist of lemon.

Is that even tea anymore?

But I digress!

A recent study has shown that sex and coffee may 'trigger a stroke'.

. . . . . . . .

I'll let that sink in for a while.

Your local Barista's life has just become a little more darker and colder now after seeing that in the BBC news. Of course, blowing your nose might even do you in, but lets not worry about that shall we? ;)
