Sticking it to the man, part 2:

How to work the system at Hooter's:

Take your kid to Hooter's on Sunday, where kids eat free all day. Then have your kid order the all-you-can-eat wings special. Your order nothing. The result? Free all-you-can-eat wings at Hooter's on Sundays!

And on the 7th day, the Lord rested and ate wings at Hooters.

FYI: I pass Hooter's twice a day en route to and from work. I read the marquee for lack of anything better to look at. I have never been to Hooter's.

Mark your calendars now...

b/c barring any unforeseen early events, Nu-Vo will be making her grand appearance into the world 7 weeks from tomorrow!

What's all the fuss about?

I'm not sure why the world is in such dire economic straits. There's like 200 million bucks lying unclaimed in bank accounts all over Africa. I get at least 2 or 3 emails every day about how I can help some poor finance manager in Ghana, Liberia, or Burkina Faso cash in on the millions of unclaimed dollars sitting in his bank. Really. Why don't we use some of that to ease the world food and gas crisis? Problem solved.

Thank goodness that all of my faithful readers are of the same mind when ordering from the DQ. For f's sake, you don't go there to get a flippin'-A vanilla cone!

In other news, I have been accused of an "increasingly bizarre" nature of my poll. Please vote in my latest poll to let your voice be heard.

Losing faith in the apocalypse.

As the dude from The Soup says, "There have been so many signs of the upcoming apocalypse that I've lost faith that it's ever going to happen. Screw you, apocalypse!!"

We're back.

From MyHomeTown, and none the worse for the wear. A-Vo and I even survived the 8-hour drive back without throwing each other out the window (thank goodness for watertowers, trains, cows, and windmills to keep her occupied), aside from 1 unfortunate water-bottle-dumping episode just shy of the state line.

Notable moments:
  • seeing someone's Packers flag being flown at half-mast;
  • watching MyHomeTown being transformed into a 1930's wonderland for a movie being filmed there this week, and watching the residents go batsh*t crazy over celebrity watching (have some shame, people!);
  • the sign at the local porn shop that says, "ENTER IN REAR" (you pass it on the way to my parents' house- get your heads out of the gutter, people).
  • A-Vo telling me while standing on my lap that she was going to "flip it, and slip it, and ride it across the street!" to my leg. Whatever that means.
  • K-Yo-Di: "A-Vo, is your new car a V6 or 4-cylinder?" Pause. A-Vo: "It's green."
  • Hearing my grandpa report that the new elevator in his house is actually a de-elevator, since it will only take him in 1 direction while he's in his wheelchair.
  • I didn't play much Trivia. Sorry, Dr. F. I'll try to do better next year...

I remembered.

I remembered something....last weekend, we took a trip to ChristmasTown, MyState. Hilarious pictures to follow!

Not much on this end.

My pregnancy-addled Swiss-cheese brain (thanks, Quantum Leap) is currently preventing me from remembering any of the hilarious anecdotes that I had been saving up to post. They must not have been all that funny if I can't remember any of them.

Big weekend coming up- A-Vo and I are roadtripping to MyHomestate to visit the grandparents, and there will be Trivia, to boot. I'm stretching already...
