Thought of the Day – 10/20/11

Why are people always trying to do things without further ado?  Are we just being lazy, or is it because of the down economy?

Quite frankly, there are times when I would appreciate some good ado – further or otherwise.

Dear Mr. Mann,

There is no chance that you will ever convince me that you are singing “revved up like a deuce”.  Ever.

Thought of the Day – 10/11/11

“Feathering” is apparently the hot hair craze amongst the ladies right now.  And no, this is different from the feathered hair in the 70’s.  With this look, women have actual feathers put in their hair, like a hair extension.

It is obvious that I am slipping behind the times because instead of thinking how pretty these feathered looks are, I wonder why women would pay to have their head look like they got attacked by a fly fisherman.

Today’s thought is “I think I should make up a new word”.  So without further ado….

[wawl-BUH-sted], verb

Definition:  To be caught, by friends, family, or co-workers, at Wal-Mart, making an embarrassing purchase.


“Gary from work totally Wal-Busted me as I was checking out with a case of adult diapers.”

“I tossed the box of condoms into the cart behind me to avoid being Wal-Busted.  Sorry Reverend!”

(Inspired by this amusing post)

Thought of the Day – 10/6/11

In addition to his many other accomplishments, Steve Jobs did more for a single letter of the alphabet than any other person in the history of the English language.


Think about it.  A single, lowercase “i” is synonymous with an entire company, and several industries of related hardware, software, and peripheral paraphernalia.  What other letter has that going for it? 

I’d allow “e” as a strong contender, but go back to my original point:  who is the person who coined e-mail, e-commerce, e-this, or e-that?  Their identity has been lost to the wind.

What Steve Jobs did for the letter “i” – for better and for worst – is an underappreciated part of his legacy.
