"What do you mean, 'Why are you chillin' with hoes?' Read the New Testament, bitches."

By the way, we need to add to the "True Badasses" section the Rev. Quinn Mann.

At what point am I just being pretentious, as opposed to being informative, when I add "... in French" to the end of a sentence?

"I'm reading Gabriel Garcia Marquez in French."

"I'm delivering a lecture on Memphis Blues in French."

Incidentally, does anyone have any blues MP3s they could send me?

My life is ... something

Today I saw a banjo player, from some big country band I've never heard of, standing on a stage at an Army base underneath a giant giant American Flag, playing along to a CD of Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby."

I wasn't sure what the song was until Vanilla said "word to your mother." Then I remembered it from VH1's top 100 one hit wonders.

If we ever get to the point where we don't like that tattoo, where we aren't comforted by it, we can change it to the Gabriel Garcia Marquez quote,

"'That's how it goes,' Ursula said, 'but not so much.'"

Or that could just get a spot on the other arm.

I find myself strangely comforted by having "So It Goes" tattood on my arm.
I went to World Dairy Expo this cheese is sweet.

Amber and I spent half a day reading Harry Potter side books (The History of Quiditch and something about Magical Creatures).

Harry Potter is on my list of guilty pleasures...along with NWA, Chicken Gizzards and Fleetwood Mac.

People at work are starting to call the VW The ManVan.

Amber has decided that Dave and Jen are "the cutest couple ever."
