It's very late so this will be short. Everyone make sure to get out and vote today.
And in honor of Election Day I'm going to list my top 5 favorite actors to play the American president:
5. Morgan Freeman (in Deep Impact)- To be honest, I'd enjoy Morgan Freeman doing anything. Even playing Scissors in a Paper, Rock and Scissors movie.
4. Leslie Nielsen (in Scary Movie 3)- The last really funny thing I saw Nielsen do. It made me laugh until my belly button fell off.
3. Jack Nicholson (in Mars Attacks)- Oddly enough this performance ranks number three on my top five favorite Jack Nicholson performances
2. James Cromwell (in Clear and Present Danger)- Just played a real creep. Very enjoyable to watch him face off against my #1…
1. Harrison Ford (in Air Force One)- GET OFF MY PLANE! (punch!)

This Is Thursday

So yeah, no new blog yesterday. Had a busy couple of days.
No big reveal for today's blog, just wanted to talk about how happy I am that it's November. I am a huge dork for the holiday season. I love Thanksgiving, I love turkey. But I LOVE Christmas. I love Christmas trees, egg nog, Rudolph on TV, hot apple cider, Christmas carols and paid days off of work! I spend half of my year looking forward to seeing the lights up on the houses and watching 'A Christmas Story' for the billionth time. I look forward to watching my neices and nephew open their presents, I look forward to Christmas cookies…
Just throwing that out there.

Three Things

Today, three things I've learned working in my current job (an office job):
1. Old people are not always wise. You can't learn from everyone. Sometimes they just want to tell you how old they were when they got their driver's license.
2. The mentally handicapped folks they assign to clean the bathrooms (and nothing else) are very nice. But they will always be cleaning the bathroom when I need to use it. Or want to clean it when I'm using it.
3. If the manager of your entire section comes around dressed as a giant baby to raise money for the March of Dimes resist the temptation to run screaming from the building. Instead, do what I did, be very uncomfortable and stare at your Wonder Woman calender until he goes away. Also pray he doesn't address you directly.

A Gripe

So first, the obvious: I love my Kindle. I've had a Kindle since last Christmas and I love it, I take it with me nearly everywhere. It's really expanded the amount I read, I read the entire 12 or so book Sookie Stackhouse series, all four Odd Thomas books plus about 10 others.
Now, the gripe. Amazon, who I've very rarely had any gripe with, hasn't released the new Wheel of Time book (Towers of Midnight) on the Kindle yet. Having waded through the first 12 or 13 mammoth sized books of the series I was eagerly awaiting this, the second to last. And no Kindle release. I mean really? They release everything else! Every new novel by every new never-been-heard-of author. Every e-book about underwater basket weaving. Every dumb bodice-ripping romance novel. So why not the book I'm waiting for? I'm convinced it's a ploy by the publishers to get the hardcore fans to run out and dish out a ton more to buy the hardcover before released the relatively cheaper Kindle edition. And while I'm normally not so critical of cheap moneymaking ploys (hey, we all gots to get paid) in this case I am. Shame on you Amazon. A pox on your house.


Again, it's my blog so I'm going to talk about one of my favorite things. Kool-Aid. I love Kool-Aid. I sometimes buy huge amounts when i can find it dirt cheap. So without further ado, my top 5 favorite flavors of Kool Aid
5) Grape- Well I love grape everything. I'd eat a deceased rabid wombat teriyaki style if it had a grape glaze on it. So this is a given.
4) Sunshine Punch- It's like Sunny Delite but better.
3) Purplesaurus Rex- This is the flavor my sister wouldn't let me make when she used to babysit us in the summertime. I love her but she was a TYRANT.
2) Sharkleberry Fin- A tangy kind of lemonady thing, it was very good. Sadly most of my favorites are out of print.
And the grandaddy of them all.
1) Berry Blue- Recently returned (thank the maker) but was missing in action for several years. When I was a kid you couldn't talk to anybody about this without them mentioning Windex. Stands out as the all time most delicious flavor. In my opinion.
