Out of the Blue

Thanks for all the well-wishing for our anniversary, and thanks for the understanding of my early departure. We had a lovely steak and many martinis, and a good time was had by all. Today is another celebration here, as tonight kicks off the NFL draft, which is like Christmas for football fans. Yay!

According to most of those instructions taking one of everything in the cabinet would be a swell idea. :p

Talk to your doctor about swell ideas.

I'll show myself out...

Prescription drugs were in his house? OMG, I have prescription drugs in my house! Am I going to die?!

Yeah I think pretty much everyone that has access to primary care, has some kind of perscription drug or other in their home. This kind of headline, without context, is misleading.

After my surgeries I tossed them all.....I see how and why people abuse opiates. Sucked to have to come off of those things 4 times. ugh. My body aches just thinking about it.

If you want to hear a horror story about drugs and carrots let me know (NOT FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE!!!!!!).

How horrible it is might depend on the size of the carrots. Those peeled baby carrots are hardly intimidating.

Yah, well ... I read in another shocking article that he kept carrots in his refrigerator. We all know how dangerous that is!

But remember Jackson was also on drugs prescribed to him that were only used in surgeries.

heh. Be interesting to see how this plays out......privy to non public info - so it is always fun to watch the media throw up all over themselves.....

I had forgotten about the draft, which is a bummer, as I went to the Vikings draft party (assistant to the VP gave wife and I tickets - long story). I wanted to take a buddy this year that eat, sleeps, drinks, poops, college and NFL football. Whoops, forgot about it, so we hung out at his house and watched the draft and played with the kids. Was probably more enjoyable that way - drinking free beer and eating free food rather than 20$ hamburgers and 9$ water beers.

Do you follow the instructions on the side, or do you self medicate?

That seems like an incredibly low amount for Dreamworks when you consider MS wasted $2.5 billion on Mojang.


Well, MS grossly overpaid for Mojang. Other stories are saying the offer for Dreamworks is closer to $4B. That's a better amount for a studio that produces several movies a year, each of which is profitable in the $100s of millions. And that's not including the massive merchandising each of these movies had or post run licensing and disc sales. Odd they say the market value for Dreamworks is only $2.3B. That seems very low to me.

Still several of their recent movies have underperformed: Turbo and Mr. Peabody didn't even clear $300M in total gross, and Penguins of Madagascar and Home failed to clear $400M. How to Train Your Dragon and Kung Fu Panda are their only reliable franchises at this point.

It's not so much the drugs per-say, but famous people tend to have doctors that prescribe whatever the patient wants, and then said patient mix and matches stuff they shouldn't have.
