MONSTER BY THE CASE
Monster brand energy drinks retail are between $1.99 and $2.09, and our food services company sells them for $2.99 at our on-site cafeteria. Sam's Club sells them in a case for a per car price of $1.21! I picked up a case yesterday after work and put two in the fridge. One for today, the other for tomorrow. The only difference between myself and drax0r where this is concerned, is that my case will last me 24 days. When he bought his he played a game called how-many-can-I-drink-a-day-and-still-function? His case lasted him four days. And the 'still function' part of that little experiment is still out for debate.

LEAVINGS
My wife got a juicer in which she makes these complex, multi-source drinks for us. And its amazing how little juice you can get from a handful of kelp, broccoli, mustard greens, spinach greens, turnip greens, carrots, and the sort. One day, she was emptying the leavings, that is, the pulp which had already been juiced and throwing it away. I stopped her, fascinated and asked, "Can you save that for me?" It looked great! I imagined it in soups, stews, salads, crock-pot meals. I find that a couple of hours after my drink, I enjoy sprinkling a little cheese, salsa and seasoning directly on the leavings and eating them.

SIXTH SENSE
I'm used to rolling out of bed around 0900, giving drax0r a call, and making it in around 1100. Since my wife has started working, however, and I need to be home before the kids get off the bus, My alarm is set for 0545. Yes, that's early. Too early. Also, my CD-Alarm is set to play Track 22 of theBSG Mini-Series, "The Sense Of Six." Give that link a listen. Yeah, do you have any idea how fucked-up my dreams are between 0545 and 0555 when I finally drag my ass out of bed? Yikes dude.

FUN WITH INSTANT MESSAGING
About 18-times a day, I lose AIM. The fun part is, unbeknownst to me, without *actually* losing connection my AIM session disconnects & reconnects possibly 18-times a minute, so that when I do finally lose connectivity with the server, Pidgin tells me I'm an asshole for trying to 'reconnect' too often and punishes me by making me wait 10-minutes. EIGHTEEN TIMES A DAY.



I'm ready to do it again. Who's with me?




JUBAL EARLY AND THE TACO BOWL
Richard Brooks played Assistant District Attorney Paul Robinette on Law & Order and was one of my favorite actors and characters. Always questioning himself, and his motives. Then he went away (later to return as a race-motivated defense attorney, but that's a story for another post) and I didn't see him again - in anything - until the very last episode of Firefly where he played the bounty hunter Jubal Early - and who, really, could forget that? So the trite hispanic man who used to fill my taco bowl every day has been replaced by Jubal Early and just seeing him every day makes me smile. I wonder if he knows?

Wow. All those thoughts were about as random as you can get. Those pics of Thomas. Has the watch always been there and NOBODY noticed?

So much to communicate - so little time.

This is so going to be hilarious when you see my next post.

I'm with you 100%.

ps: Love that you used the "grimace" pic. :)

I'm already laughing!

I got a fever, and the only prescription... is more cowbell!

I'm a grimacing fool!

Every time I see a Monster energy drink (which isn't often because they're rare here), I feel compelled to buy it and drink it. Your not-so-subliminal advertising is excellent. But the sad thing is that all this, er, twitchiness is totally wasted! D:

Count me in with the Legion of Juicetice. I drink the foul garlic-parsley-kale-chard concotions too. Try fennel... it's tasty. Not sure if I could bring myself to eat the pulp however. Even with cheese and spices it would be too veggie-gooey to deal with. Then again, if you served it for dinner I would be polite and have a few bites before surrepitiously foisting it off on the family dog... if he would have it, that is. ;)

*burp* enjoying a cervesa on the back porch. Can't go to work on a day like today.

I love the wind today - I just wish it would rain already! Last time I had fennel was in a dish a buddy of mine overseas aptly called, 'Lobit.' Lots of seafood with a cream sauce in the crock. After he gave me the recipe I asked him, "Why is it called Lobit?"

"Cause whatever you find you just lob it in the crock, mate!"

After much deliberation and laughing to myself... Gwen uses Suave. Alex goes to the salon.

Oh my GOD I have not watched Galaxy Quest in ages... I saw that movie in the frickin' THEATER... *begins the DVD hunt*

But Gwen's hair is so bouncy!

I too saw it in the theater, and have watched it at least annually since. What a funny, funny movie. I have a small group of friends on here who quote it frequently with me.

MONSTER BY THE CASE
This is too funny. Having met Tony, I can't quite picture him full of energy. I wonder how you endured these four days.

I imagine that the actress uses Suave.

LEAVINGS
My mom used to juice all the time. And yes, research shows that man was meant to eat raw fruits as the caloric intake is lower as it takes longer to consume. Therefore, your fill up time is closer to consumption time.

This is my favorite picture of you. Ever.

And I'm guessing that since galinda822 is in many ways a very practical woman and you are homosexual ubersexual, I'm guessing it's your pocketbook that is hurting after a trip down the cosmetic isle.

eah, do you have any idea how fucked-up my dreams are?
Your dreams are rather twisted.

ehowton used to be a photographic intelligence troop. photogoot used to be a military intelligence photographer. This past December, the two of us went to work together once again, when schpydurx lost his watch during a drunken urination session.
I never did piece together the fact that the two of you worked so close together whilst in the Force; that having been said, thanks for the reveal (even it if is almost six months late.)

FUN WITH INSTANT MESSAGING
I don't understand what your gripe is here as you are known to take the instant out of Instant Messaging.

I'm ready to do it again. Who's with me?
I SO love this picture of you for many reasons:

1. It is a photogoot original.
2. You're smoking and enjoying a cigar that I, a mere n00b brought you an afficionado.
3. You are in your element and are look very wise and contemplative.
4. I was there when this picture was taken. In fact, I make a small cameo in this high resolution image.

Why did you use an Edward Scissorhands avatar? I loves the shot, I dos, but I don't get the association to the post.

He slept two of them, after his crash.

That's a lot of bouncy to her hair.

LEAVINGS
I like to eat them.

You might be gay.

I'm guessing it's your pocketbook that is hurting after a trip down the cosmetic isle.
I use Suave products.

Your dreams are rather twisted.
They're also very entertaining.

I never did piece together the fact that the two of you worked so close together whilst in the Force;
We lived together too. How about them apples?

I SO love this picture of you for many reasons:

  1. He's the best.

  2. Its a grand cigar, thank you.

  3. I rock the casbah.

  4. Your head makes an appearance.



Why did you use an Edward Scissorhands avatar?
It was my newest avatar, and I wanted to show it off.

I loves the shot, I dos,
Thanks! It was a difficult one to get just right. First, the proper picture had to be found - and not one which has been overdone, either. Then - I wanted a similar background to the one found on the album cover (especially for the reason behind its creation - which also marks its first use) so I had to find the perfect snowscape, shrink it, tile it, and color it, then apply heavy filtering to the face to blend with the background. And then of course there was the cropping. Always with the cropping. I'm glad you like it, thanks!

$1.21/case? Damn, awesome!

I like the random. :D I also really, really enjoy the way you tie pictures into your posts (in case I haven't mentioned it before).

$1.21 per can when you purchase a case. A fantastic buy.

Why thank you so much for saying so!

(in case I haven't mentioned it before)
(And I never mind hearing it again :P)
