I caught a cold. It’s not a bad one, but I’ve got the whole post-nasal-drip, no energy, low appetite thing going on. Oh, and I had to drive 3 hours to Pocatello in order to get the family out of town for Sandra’s birthday.
I crashed on a spare bed upon arrival (crashed me, not the minivan) and then went out to buy some diet soda and Vitamin C, so I could properly medicate myself for the weekend. Ahh, the magic of caffeine and ascorbic acid… two great tastes that fool me into thinking I’m not sick while my body works overtime fighting the yuck.
Speaking of yuck… I assume you’ve all seen Orville Necro-Redenbacher in his new commercial. No? Well, it’s frightening. They computer animated a new, hipper Orville so that the real popcorn magnate could remain in the grave without impacting the company’s bottom line.
And that raises the following question: which dead corporate icon is next? Me, I think Dave Thomas might be the next candidate for a return frome the grave, and I just hope Wendy’s can be convinced by Necro-Orville’s frightening demeanor that bringing Dave back from the dead would be a bad idea.
Ronald Reagan, however… they can bring him back. In fact, if you payed attention during Back to the Future you know that sometime before 2015 they WILL. They need to get started on the rest of those Jaws sequels, though.
