Remember this summer when I didn't post much?

Well this week may see sporadic, at best, posting. Some residual crap from this summer to deal with.

For now check out some 90's fashion and tell me if you own/owned any. Personally I didn't have any. Although if they had ripped jeans in this I'd admit to destroying about a dozen pairs. (via)

Not a skateboarder. He's a great athlete.

Back to mah music roots

All we see anymore is Ronald?

What happened to all the other McDonalds' characters? You never see them anymore. No Hamburglar, no Grimace, no Mayor McCheese. WTF?

Only 1 arrest at the Mullet Festival?

How disappointing.
NICEVILLE — A man who tried to enter the Mullet Festival without paying the $10 admission fee was arrested.

Niceville Police were called to the vendor parking area at the festival after a man tried to re-enter the event after leaving it, according to an arrest report from the Niceville Police Department.

When the officer approached the man, he smelled “the distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from his person and mouth,” the report stated.

Old, drunk and stupid is no way to go thru life.

Make sure the motor home is stopped before you walk out of it.
DEFUNIAK SPRINGS – A 55-year-old woman suffered serious injuries after she fell out of a motor home that was traveling on Interstate 10.

About 4 p.m. Tuesday, three people from Midland City, Ala., were heading westbound on I-10 a few miles from the U.S. Highway 331 exit in a 1975 Dodge motor home when Sharon R. Glover walked to the rear of the motor home to use the restroom, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Glover somehow fell out of the vehicle and slid 100 feet on the paved emergency lane before hitting the grass shoulder.

“It is unknown if the passenger opened the wrong door or leaned on the door,” an FHP news release said.

Act selfishly (bad advice of the day)

Put your health ahead of your kids' and your soon to be dead parents.
When asked about her health and that of her fellow generation Xers, Paula McGarrigle laughs wryly.

"Well, I just had knee surgery last week and I got reading glasses two weeks ago," says the 43-year-old.

"Now I'm realizing that I'm just like everyone else in that I'm getting older. When the surgeon says, 'You have a degenerative tear,' I'm thinking, 'But I'm only 43!' "

She wonders how she'll fit post-surgery physiotherapy into her jam-packed schedule.

McGarrigle is part of a generation that's being squeezed. Hard.

Roughly defined as the generation born between the early 1960s and the late 1970s, gen Xers are often simultaneously building their careers, raising young children and dealing with aging parents. Health? Who's got time for that?

"You should have been here yesterday"

Greatest surfing movie ever.

Shallow thought

Dudes that pop boner pills wouldn't have to take them if a hot naked college girl wanted to sleep with them.

What the hell happened to Snapple?

They sold the hell out of that shit and then it just seemed to disappear from the 7 Eleven refrigerators. A lot of it tasted good, too. Weird.

I suppose I could just Google it, but I'm one lazy blogger.

Teenage Axl Rose mugshots


The Redcoats are coming, too

Drugs? Or just crazy?
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. Officials at a South Florida safari said a woman, wearing an open robe, drove her car through the park and then sped away. A Lion Country Safari official said the woman made comments Wednesday that terrorists were coming to kill the animals. Park employees called authorities and secured the park, but she drove off. The woman was not identified.

Father Doug speaks

Remember when you heard the good times take its final breath?
Mr. DOUGLAS COUPLAND (Author, "Player One"): I think way back, the '20s or the '30s, when Kodak came out with the Brownie and they put a list of instructions on the box, like how to use this thing, I think someone arbitrarily said, make sure the person in the photograph is smiling. And we went from that one sort of set of industrial instructions to this whole culture of perkiness.

In the future, it's going to get worse: no silver linings, no lemonade. The elevator only goes down, and the bright note is that the elevator will, at some point, stop.

Fave song during high school


Had the employee been allowed to carry a hammer this would never had happened.
ORANGE COUNTY -- A hammer was the weapon of choice for two angry men Friday night.

According to Orange County Sheriff's Office, two men became upset after they were asked to show their identification at an ABC Liquor store on South Orange Blossom Trail. The two men left the store, but came back a short time later with a hammer and chased down the store employee, hitting him on the head.

Sad little waves we received

Love cheap video camera footage

Please use texting as your main form of communication. Please?

Okay, it took me forever to own a cellphone, but it's obvious that texting is the most efficient way to communicate 95% of all dialogue. I'm at a point where if someone calls me I don't answer, let it go to voicemail, listen to their voicemail and then send a response back via text. Got it baby boomers?
For example, a Baby Boomer is approximately half as likely as a member of Generation Y or Generation X to own a smartphone. Only eight percent of younger Baby Boomers and six percent of older Baby Boomers say they use a mobile device for work E-mail, compared with 12 percent of Gen Xers. Understanding how different generations interact with technology will help you tailor your implementation and training strategies so that all employees can make the most of your initiatives.

The Naked Surfer

So happy to learn Florida doesn't have a monopoly on crazy. (hat tip: BB)
OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma City man returned to his business after lunch to find a naked stranger sitting at his desk, surfing the Internet.
