Out of the Blue

Those $3.95 Royal Riviera pears intrigued me the way the five dollar shake fascinated Vince Vega in Pulp Fiction, and the aftermath stayed true to that. My pear review takes the form of an imaginary conversation between myself, Uma Thurman, and Steve Buscemi as the Buddy Holly waiter:

Did you just order a four-dollar pear?
Sure did.
A pear? With a stem and seeds?
Uh-huh.
It costs four dollars?
Yep.
You don't put bourbon in it or anything?
Nope.
Just checking.
(Fast Forward)
Goddamn! That's a pretty f-in' good pear!
Told ya.
I don't know if it's worth four dollars, but it's pretty f-in' good.

Anyway, it really was pretty darned excellent. I don't know if it was that the flavor stood out over other pears so much as it was just, well, perfect. As first we shrugged and thought we weren't sure what the fuss was all about, but by the time we were done, we were impressed enough that we may give some out as gifts.

Come on, Blue! You can't expect anyone to be excited after the entire pear issue. What's a turkey salad compared to a 4 dollar pear?

The only winning move is not to play (film)!

Why?

Well... judging from my movie-going/-watching experience related to movies and their sequels.... more of often than not, the sequels aren't quite up to snuff, as the director feels as though he can then do pretty much whatever he wishes, even if it's to the detriment of the story/characters/whatnot.

OK, I can see why people would think the movie would suck, be stupid, whatever.

But religious groups are taking offense at the movie, bringing up how *gasp* they play silent night or show a nativity scene.

It's a friggin movie people. I'm a Roman Catholic and it doesn't offend me. It's not like they show Santa sodomizing a young boy or something.

Aspirin is fucking obsolete medication. Any so called "doctor" that still refers to aspirin should have his fucking license revoked.

It still has its uses. Ignoring the pain-killer aspect of it, it is very good for the heart. That's why they sell low-dose aspirin.

The current regimen of diet and exercise "is like treating all fevers with one aspirin,'' Dhurandhar said

Aspirin is fucking obsolete medication. Any so called "doctor" that still refers to aspirin should have his fucking license revoked.

If I have a fever, I take paracetamol. Crawl under the blankets, the fever is gone six hours later. I don't care if it's the Mongolian ShitFlu, the Asian BirdFlu, the Croatian SlobodanFlu or the Alaskan PolarBearUpYourAssFlu.

Infectobesity. Give me a fucking break. Some people get fat because certain parts of their bodies/organs don't function. Like your thyroid, for example. But the idea that you have a bacteria that makes you fat is just retarded.

Btw, Wargames sequel now filming? Was Matthew Broderick hard up for money?

Eh. I really didn't want any attention from anyone, but word got 'round from those in the know today at FHS....

I pawned off a huge box o' chocolates to the girls next door as an X-Mas treat. (I'm pretty much not going to be around much at all after tonight until Monday evening...)

EDIT: And, e-mail me/go in chat about a spiel my mother delivered to me over dinner, which had a good point but... I dunno.

Well that old saying about the mail carrier..."Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow..." means nothing here today. Even postal service was canceled in most areas. Not that I would head back out to my mail box toady anyway. I went out this morning and fighting the 40-50 mph wind gusts and snow that felt like tiny nails against any exposed skin plain sucked. Made me think about those stories over the past few weeks about that family and those hikers caught in the elements. Things truly sucked for them beyond what I can express.

Just found this article...

http://food.yahoo.com/blog/hungrygirl/1/in-the-mood-for-food-you-feel-what-you-eat

I've felt all of those many times in a short period many days this week. Should I, then, eat all of their recommended foods simultaneously after blending them all into a shake?

(Yes, I kid.)

I don't know. Personally, if I paid 4 bucks for a pear, I suspect my subconscious would convince me it was worth it. Hell, that explains how I managed to enjoy some of the crap games I paid for, no?

Was this gorilla marketing?

I don't know about any gorilla-run marketing companies, but it could be guerrilla marketing.

Edit: I mean, I guess most advertising is done by gorillas, really. But still, there's a distinction!

More bullshit to have an excuse to be fat and lazy:

yeah, I know the bacteria that causes fatness - it is called "beer, high in fat foods, candy, soda pop, and no excercise".

omg
