What's a boudin ball? I don't know, but it makes for good blog material.
Thanks to our correspondent in Shreveport, LA, Ms. R. Roach!

I Am Not Getting My Tax Dollars' Worth

You'd think with an annual tax assessment of $7,000, I wouldn't have to deal with this. Look closely at the arrow. Sorry.

Robbery Interrupted

You know those nylon sock-ettes they provide at shoe stores? Not surprisingly (if you've read this blog before or know me) they fit my head.

CPR, AED, & F. U.

I got automated external defibrillator (AED) training at work. I was instructed by a very confident trainer freshly discharged from the Navy. She dubbed the AED "idiot-proof." I'm doubtful, so doubtful that I took out my frustration on the CPR dummy. It sure was fun pounding its chest. The plastic hollow head makes a nice sound when it's getting kicked across a room, too. Huzzah! Anybody need a life saved?

A fond childhood memory is going to IHOP to get breakfast food for dinner. It was the only time I was allowed to have chocolate milk at a meal. Dad would drink the whole pot of coffee. I would indulge in the unusual pancake syrups, one of which was boysenberry. Some IHOPs no longer offer this. I have gone to Cleveland, OH, (275 miles away) to get this syrup in an IHOP (my son's living there is also an enticement). Imagine how happy I was to find boysenberry syrup in my LOCAL IHOP this weekend!

Child Care/Abuse

Any thoughts?

It's Mountain Dew, Part II!

Sorry, Citrus Drop. I wonder how many of these knock-offs I can find?

Bunny's Place

Some of my readers may know Bunny, my colleague over the cubicle wall. She just acquired a snow globe from Amish Country. Why she has blinds on her cubicle wall, I haven't a clue: there's no door. I love Bunny.

F! S! D!

When you're in middle school and you create your own comic books, parents and teachers are always looking over your shoulder, so my buddy Stanley and I created a simple shorthand for swear words: the f-word became F! and so forth. Somebody was clearly inspired by us.

Hard Times Yield Beat-Up Dollars

I go to Hard Times chili joint every Tuesday for $4.99 chili mac. Times is tough: check out the dollar bill I got in change. I'm thinking it's probably soft enough to serve as toilet paper.

Multitaskin' To Make A Living

I confess: I can't remember any of the three services this hard-working American provides except for being a Herbalife distributor...maybe mini-golf-supply logistics and butchering. But I was impressed with his wide range of skills.

It's Mountain Dew!

Sorry...Mountain Lightning. Lightnin'.

Aliens Have Landed In...North Myrtle Beach

And they drink Gatorade. It's not really alien-like, but it sure isn't human either.

Swedish Fish, Mango, Vanilla and...Chocolate?

Rita's Ice has a new Swedish Fish flavor. So, naturally, my always famished 10-year-old takes the free sample of Swedish Fish. He then puts it on his mango ice, which is surrounded by custard flavored with vanilla and...chocolate. WTF?!
