RTT! Best day of the week! You know why.
*Yes, it's true. I am the real reason my beloved Johnny Depp and that woman are breaking up. He finally succumbed to his deep and abiding love for me. You knew this would happen.
*Do you ever wonder if people judge you by what's in your cart at the grocery store? I don't buy a lot of junk food (much to James Bond's frustration), but when I do, I always think other people look at it and think I feed my family crap.
*BTW, I wonder about the whole judging by what's in my cart because I totally judge others by what's in their cart. Yep, I sure do. 3 cases of soda, 6 bags of chips, 15 frozen burritos and 52 packages of Ramen Noodles? Yes, I feel better about myself and my clearly superior cooking skills. I may have issues.
*I am oddly fascinated by Newt Gringrich's (current) wife's hair. Seriously, look at it! It does not move. Ever.
*Even if it's food that's healthy and good for you, if you eat a ton of it, it's really not.
*Why is that in any movie or commercial where a kid or teenager gets hit by a car they always show a shoe that has come off laying in front of the car? It's weird and creepy.
*I suppose if Obama doesn't get reelected he can always start a singing career.
*Speaking of Obama and Gingrich (I was, wasn't I?) this cracked me up:
*Chuck Norris was once the Jewish Humanitarian of the Year. (Seriously)
*Remember how I was griping last week about the Girl Scouts and their evil, delicious cookies that you cannot get away from? They're serious. You WILL buy their cookies! (read the caption).
*The Guinness world record for the most stolen book from public libraries is the Guinness World Record book itself. Huh.
*A few months back we went to the flea market in Heidelberg (as you can tell, we loves us some good flea markets-and proper English) and Indy saw an old rotary phone. He looked at it curiously and asked what it was. Realizing he had probably never actually seen one, I explained that it was a phone. He looked at me skeptically. He picked up the receiver and turned it around, wondering why it was attached with a cord. Good heavens. He asked where the buttons where. I felt incredibly old and showed him how the dial worked. He was incredulous by how long it took and asked where you stored the numbers. I explained that there was no storage and that you actually had to remember someone's number if you wanted to call them. He could not believe that people used to have to use a phone that was hooked to the base, took forever to dial and didn't store any numbers. He also commented that by the time you actually got through dialing 911, you'd probably be dead.
*Is it wrong that I have more posts with the tag Johnny Depp than I do for James Bond?
*The birds in Wiesbaden are freaky. The black birds (crows maybe?) are freakishly huge. I mean big enough to carry off our dogs huge. They scare me. The pigeons are also incredibly numerous and creepy. There are a flock of them that sit on the roof of the building across from us and I swear they are plotting to take over. Alfred Hitchcock would really like it.
*Someone just came to test our smoke alarms. Of course this meant that they went off. They are incredibly loud.
*I've noticed that Germans up here (like the guys that were here to check the smoke alarms) tend to say "chow" (which is Italian, right?) when they leave instead of "tchuss," which is German. In HD, they said tschuss (chew-ss), but in not in Wiesbaden. I wonder why?
*And now you know where their inspiration came from:
