June is Bustin' Out All Over!

1400 Friday I drove to Boyd in drax0r's truck, leaving my son with him to get a dresser and my deep-freezer, to pick up his kegerator and leave my daughter with my parents for the entire week, as Friday was their last day of school for the year.

Saturday I grilled hog for my mother-in-law and her brother who drove down to pick up my son and take him back to Wichita for the entire week. We had a horrific breakfast at IHOP (I don't think I'm ever going to eat there again) early this morning, then they headed out as we found ourselves in McKinney at 0900 Sunday morning.

My wife did quite a bit of shopping, and while we were out, I picked up six CD's for $3 each at Half-Price Books. Yes, I can spot Varese, Telarc, DG & Putumayo from 25-feet:

  1. Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace

  2. Sweeny Todd...In Jazz

  3. Wagner: The Compact "Ring"

  4. Swan Lake (2-disc)

  5. African Party

  6. REO SPEEDWAGON (2-disc)

This haul helps takes the sting out of SAE canceling my Pleasantville score due to lack of stock (I did borrow the SOUNDTRACK from my dad and I've been relying on my 256kbps/VBR copy of the score I had squirreled away on iTunes - an entirely acceptable substitute), and have been putting my toe in Flight which I began listening to while searching for music to accompany my last post (and now must go and read the entry, as it pre-dates my introduction to swashbuckler332).

Wife shopped, I tried on shoes and hats, buying neither. I'm quite picky. The most interesting thing I found was the New Puma Levitation Lace GT. They retail online for $120 but the outlet mall had them for $95. They're made in Vietnam. I told them my buddy unixwolf was visiting over there and could probably pick them up for $2.

While certainly eye-catching, I'm unsure I'd ever be able to wear yellow shoes in public.
The red were equally as distracting.

And lastly, I got into a screaming match with my poor wife. *sigh* All I wanted was a small sandwich baggie. I'm standing in the pantry, "They're next to the spices." she says. I see the box, but I want the small ones. "They're next to the spices." she repeats.

I try to clarify, "Yes, I see the those bags, I want the SMALL ones, like for a sandwich."

"They're NEXT TO the spices." She repeats, again.

Through gritted teeth, I explain...very...slowly..."I see the large bags. I WANT THE SMALL ONES. LIKE FOR A SANDWICH!"

She stands, and whirls towards me, "THEY'RE NEXT TO THE GODDAMN SPICES!"

I snatch up the box of 40-quart bags, pull one out and open my mouth...

1-Quart Storage Bags; 40 Count

This poor package labeling will get out of control, it will get out of control and we will be lucky to live through it!

Those are some seriously "bright" shoes! People would be able to see your feet from miles away. :)

You can tell by the way I use my walk I'm a ladies man, no time to talk.

I am not believing that you just quoted "Staying Alive". I would have never guessed that you even know who the Bee Gees are let alone been able to quote them!

*you could knock me over with a pencil right now*

I am not believing that you know I just quoted a song from a SOUNDTRACK. That is, from a MOVIE!

I didn't know that was from a movie!

She likely heard it at the Roller Rink.

Roller rink? They still have those?
glodowg at 2008-06-03 20:03 (UTC) (Link)
I don't know if they still have them, but they did back in the day!

I have teh soundtrack, though I have never seen the movie. and the first thing that came to my mind was the song. Had to stop and ponder the name of the movie. Now if there had been a book......

This is an album that I have on vinyl. Don't really think the CD could sound this good, especially when you play it loud.

LOL! I now have a mental picture of you "strutting" down the street in those shoes and your camo shorts.

So, I read the title of your post and I immediately thought, 'Hmm, Mrs. Cleaver always seemed to keep herself pretty well covered.'


P.S. Much to my dismay, I might add.
ehowton at 2008-06-02 14:54 (UTC) (Link)
Yes, Mrs. Cleaver was a real-looker. All that repressed sexuality, pent up in those drab clothes she used to always wear around the house...you may be ill, Mr. Jollywood!

After so much Drama, which I don't fully understand...
Comic Relief.

When it comes to the Mrs. get the proof first, then argue. You still lose, but you feel better about yourself in the end. ;)

I recently read an article about a hockey goalie who switched from yellow pads to white. Some Canadian eye doctor told him yellow is the most easily recognized color to the eye. A hockey goalies doesn't want to advertise where the goal is. So you must ask yourself, do you want to be noticed?

As if I needed shoes to do that!

I think it would kind of frighten me if you were to purchase such bright shoes.
ehowton at 2008-06-03 01:49 (UTC) (Link)
I could pull it off. ;)

LOL. That sandwich bag thing is funny. Those shoes are just begging for a blacklight!

Yea that was me. Darn computer.

I'd want to dance.
