People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
In the end, we will not be moving any time soon. I'm all talk! And besides, I'm waiting on that one perfect bargain house in town to hit the market. I figure if something large enough, within a couple blocks of the elementary school and a park, ever does become available in our price range, I want to be able to jump on it. I don't want to use up any house hunting goodwill with my wife too early.

Since being corralled into coaching again this year, I'm out on the pitch running around. I get home and my knees are sore. They tend to ache for a couple days. That's why I quit playing in the first place. God its hell getting old.

In the mood for some FAC zanyness today, but I have the feeling the blue shirt contigent are going to be the active ones here right before Labor Day.
There is a cloud outside my window right now, and if you squint just right it looks like Carmen Electra. Nature is obscene! And mesmerizing....it honestly looks so much like a well formed chest I feel like I should look away!

Working next to the Police and Sheriff headquarters, sometimes it happens that they fly out of here sirens wailing in hot pursuit, as they did this morning. Curious, I bumped into an officer I know and asked what the commotion was about. He said they were chasing a stolen vehicle, but they had lost it in the west end of Louisville.
When I got back to my office, my AA said the Mayor's AA was looking for me and it was urgent. (Oh, oh, methinks) and she tells me to call a police officer since my garage had been broken into. Turns out the perp didn't count on the painter up on the ladder next door seeing him snooping around, entering the garage through the window, calling in a description of him and his vehicle with my stolen lawn mower in the back. Nor that another officer would be in the vicinity to give chase. And unfortunately lose him ... Yup, same guy as above.
Did you know there is a type of cloud called 'mammatus clouds' because of their resemblance to, well, you know. Frequently, they are seen in connection with severe weather.
A noontime random thought: Late summer allergies suck.
Another random thought: We had coyotes howling somewhere down the hill from us last night. Of course, it got virtually every dog in the neighborhood all worked up... except my dog, who was blissfully snoring.

I can't concentrate here in the office.
I haven't vacuumed or cleaned the floors at home since my family has been in California the past 10 days. Now my parents call and say they're coming over to see me tonight. I need to get home and clean.
Plus Michigan State plays at 8 PM tonight.
Yup, no more work getting done today.

Yay! We are getting a new call center in town. I've been told it will bring in a ton of new hotties.
I burned down the church to atone for my transgressions.
There’s a local developer called “[company name] Realty Advisors”. I cannot look at that name without automatically transposing it in my mind to: [company name] Reality Advisors. I get the urge to call them up sometimes….
Me: “Hello, is this [company name]?”
Them: “yes it is, how may we help you?”
Me: “Um, the voices have been getting more and more persistent today. I’m not sure if it’s the dog next door who is communicating with me telepathically, or if it’s beings from an alternate universe, but they keep telling me they plan to take over. At first I didn’t believe what I was hearing, but my disbelief is being shaken. Yesterday, they kept saying the number ‘129……129…..129…’ I walked into a sporting goods store this morning and I’ll be damned – there was a pistol that cost $129! What does it mean? I’ll be honest I’m living in fear right now and I just want to know if this is really happening! What do you think?”
