Man My Windshield Wipers Suck

As my windshield alternated between smeared and partially-smeared this morning I kept thinking to myself “Didn’t I just have these replaced?” It seems like decades since I’ve had a pair of windshield wipers that worked properly.

This Ain’t Your Father’s Amazing Race
Stacy and Phil don’t read this part if you have yet to catch up. I know how you like to make my think that you have and then when I start talking about it you tell me I’ve spoiled the surprise — see also Survivor. 😛

There are times when I watch this season of Amazing Race that I wish Shoobie was nearby to translate the Kentucky-speak for me. Any of you who heard that the Kentuckians (Kentuckyites?) finished in last place on the previous leg may think that his skills are no longer needed. But wait! This was not to be an elimination leg of the race… However, unlike in previous seasons Mary and David were not stripped of all possessions, instead they were “marked for elimination” (I think they should have to wear a scarlet ‘E’) meaning that if they do not finish in first place on the next leg that they will be assessed a thirty-minute penalty. This seems a bit lenient to me, but I’m just an arse.

I hope that this penalty doesn’t cause David and Mary to be elmininated because with every passing week they become closer to being the only pair that I hope wins. I for one am sick and tired of hearing about how the two pretty-boy models were recovering addicts and how tough it was. I am certain it was extremely painful, now shut up about it and move on.

What’s with all the teamwork going on this season? In future episodes I hope that there is some sort of collusion rule put in place so that pairs can’t team up to help one another. This is supposed to be competition goddammit!

They Don't Make Them Like This Any More, Part 2

Dude Looks Like A Photographer, Part 2
On Saturday I saw this girl in Oakhurst who was out doing a bicycle ride. As I was passing I said “I’m jealous, it’s such a great day for a ride.” Her response was “It sure is, are you out here working today?”

I’ve completely nailed the photographer look. I now know what I can be for Halloween…. Creepy Porn Photographer Guy

How Many Shots Do You Get To Be In Love?
Recently I’ve been reading of couples who have split up and gotten back together. This has never happened to me, so it confuses me somewhat.

Unlike muscles I don’t believe that the bonds of love get stronger when broken. In general I think that you get one shot at falling in love with someone and when the separation occurs that one shot is over. Also, the women with whom I’ve had relationships which have failed have never asked to get back together.

What says you? I am curious to know.

CD Pick Of The Week
I thought that this was going to be a difficult selection to make this week… and then I listened to the new Badly Drawn Boy release “Born in the U.K.” on AOL’s CD Listening Party. Holy fuck is this a good cd! Not once did I look over to the laptop and think “Well there’s a song to skip.” And before you go bashing me for liking Badly Drawn Boy because they don’t rock, remember that I am open to all most types of music.

A CD that I am going to suggest you avoid is Gomez’ “Five Men In A Hut.” Readers with good memories will remember that I really like Gomez and the music that they produce. However this is a “Greatest Hits” release which I can’t condone. I am tired or record companies repackaging music, tossing in a couple of “new” or “rare” tracks, and expect us to buy it all again. Fuck. That.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – 6 on a scale from 1-10
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy — “Cursed Sleep”
Website Of The Day – While I am not a comic book guy I know that many are. If I was, I am sure that I would visit Cover Browser often because it has a great wealth of pictures of comic book covers for all to see.

    Amen on the “pretty boys.”

    And, yeah, I do think you can fall back in love with someone from a past ralationship, as long as there’s been sufficient time to grow, change, and forgive/forget past mistakes/problems. I don’t think it works if you rush back to it.

  2. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    That’s an interesting thought Amity. Since I rarely stay in contact with my ex-girlfriends I never thought of that.

  3. Barb says:

    I think they had to change the non-elimination rules becuase there are certain countries (like India where they are currently) that you couldn’t take all the money away. Does anyone in India have any money to give away? I think it will be interesting, I like that when they have to wait the 30 minutes they will have to watch the other teams come in…… I agree on the pretty boys, I think they are as annoying as the religious family a few years back.

    I am so stealing your Halloween idea. Except I’ll be rolling with my vintage Fujica collection and a 70s wig, thus ratcheting up the cheese factor.

    I’m with you on stuff being over. I mean why break up in the first place if you’re just going to get back together?

    Steal away Senor Smoove, steal away.
