Olympic Thought

I realized today why swimming is the most exciting Olympic sport to watch.  It's exactly like horse racing. Two to four minutes of go-go-go and then it's over and it's usually incredibly close at the finish.
For some reason, watching track doesn't have the same thrill, except for the 100 m.

Rather than say something original, I'm going to steal a comment from a commenter at the Guardian:

"it would have been perfect if the Queen had been stroking a white cat". LOL. Love that.

The Corgis stole the show for me.

To a Deluxe Apartment in the Sky

Okay, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, here goes.  Didn't Sherman Hemsley die years ago?I swear he was already dead. What he doing dying again? I don't get it.

I think Weezie died a while ago? I think. I don't know.

Weekly post

Isn't it terrible that I seem to be reduced to a weekly post? If they would update our browsers at work, I could use blogger again, but we are still in the Web stone age, so I have to blog from home only and that is a drag.

If only Fancy Feast was back in my life, I would have so many more amusing anecdotes to post. Nooooo! His African mask is enough to remind me of how bad things could get.

Re: last week's post. Yes! I totally admit it is stalkerish, but hey, I don't care. They are weird and I am happy to sneak photos of them in their natural weirdo CPN habitat. No photo this weekend because Hallelujah! Hallelujah! they seem to be vamoosed on vacation. Peace at last on Belmore. Their daughter is home alone and she is normal (must be adopted).

In other news, having lunch with Smoothie today, he made one of his Smoothie comments that had me laughing and going Wha? at the same time. In a nutshell, he cannot figure out why South Asian males are appealing to me, but black males not so much. (Yes, we were also discussing if having a preference is racist. We both think it is not.)  We can blame the South Asian preference on Kumar (wherever he is*). Smoothie's observation went like this. "Take a black guy. And put my hair on him (at this point he grabs the top of his head as if to remove a hairpiece). And you've got an Indian."  Me: "So, you're saying that an Indian is just a black guy with a white guy's hair."  S: "Yes, they've got soft hair like us." Me: "That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard."  This conversation should be in a Tarantino movie.

*Still Toronto, as far as I can determine

Update: 8:00 p.m.  Dammit! They are already home. I cannot catch a freakin'  break.

Celebrity News

Alec B., 54, married his 28-year-old yoga instructor.  All together now "There's no fool like an old fool".

In happier news, Katie H. left the couch jumper. That is one hostage-taking I am happy to see finally resolved. Time to get their kid into therapy and de-programming.
