Random Tuesday: T.U.E.S.D.A.Y.

randomtuesday

It's Random Tuesday again. Let's not waste any time.

T is for Twitter. And Telus, my cell provider who has finally ended it's evil ways and allowed incoming tweets to my cell phone again so now when I'm out and I tweet something and you answer it and I don't respond you don't have to be all "Ooh, who thinks he's all that?" and snap your fingers back and forth in the air. Well I don't think that, but guess who won't be on my device update list now?

U for ubiquitous, cause don't you wish you could drop words like that into everyday conversation? Oh, you can? Well 'U' suck.

E is for... E is for... E? Ephemeral? Elephantitis? Eric Estrada? No. E rhymes with G and G is for garden and my garden is going to kick your garden's ass this year!



S is for Star Trek which RAWKED! Zachary Quinto may well have been cloned just to play Spock. And the guy who played Dr. McCoy? Worth the movie alone. And Uhura? She's... er, nice. S is also for 'seven,' as in the game seven that the Vancouver Canucks won't be playing in because they lost to Chicago last night. I will console myself with the fact that 20 of the Blackhawk's 27 players are Canadian so even if they win the Stanley Cup, it will still spend most of its time here. And a special thanks to Literal Dan for not rubbing my nose in it.

D rhymes with C which stands for cookie and that's good enough for me.

A for Adidas, my dope new shoes. My Nikes developed some serious structural integrity issues. I got them cheap though. I've got a friend who has a friend who found them after they fell out of a container that fell off a truck that left a factory in China that's nowhere near the Chinese factory that actually makes Nikes and has no affiliation with Nike whatsoever.

Y is for Y chromosome. Which I have.

O is not a letter in Tuesday, but there's an O in Oprah and is it just me or does anyone else find her magazine covers terrifying? Have you seen this months? "The world is like my little bubble. Make me happy little bubble or I'll destroy you."

And finally, B, the most important letter that isn't in any day of the week. B is for bacon. And bacon, according to Supreme Leader's new Bon Appétit summer party guide is,
"45% monounsaturated, the good for you fat that can help lower bad cholesterol levels. Better still, bacon's monounsaturated fat turns out to be oleic acid, the same fat found in olive oil. So that means that some could argue that bacon is about half as good for you as olive oil and about 100 times more delicious."

That, my friends, is gospel.

Go to Keely's and join the zombie plague.

  1. I love your TUESDAY OB this week. very creative indeed.

    And yes your garden will kick my non-existent gardens butt. I have one half dead rose bush on the balcony. And my plant (not sure what it is) in the plastic cup from my son for mother's day on the kitchen table.

    A green thumb I have not. Peach yes, green no.

  2. Oprah totally creeps me out.

  3. MMMMM, bacon. And Star Trek was awesome.

  4. Ubiquity is why I like baseball so much. And I don't think you've given LiteralDan quite enough time for the nose rubbing. He's already started in on my blog and the Wings haven't even finished round two. When the Hawks lose to the Wings, you are officially invited to rub his nose in it like a bad, bad, doggy.

  5. Heyyyyy....I use ubiquitous in sentences all the time!

    Your garden will so kick my garden's ass. The Cardinals and squirrels are eating my strawberries and the wind keeps knocking over my container tomato.

  11. How 'bout them Hawks huh Cap'n? :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. So I am assuming that if bacon is 45% good, then it's 55% bad.

    I'm Ok with that.

    Happy RTT!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I think I could get away with using ubiquitous more so than dope. Maybe it's my age.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh crap...nobody told me that there would be garden wars here. Does that mean I should do some weeding today?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Cookies are always good enough for me too.
    Happy RTT!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like your thinking about bacon, I had a super yummy BLT yesterday. Too funny about your non-Nikes, happy for the Adidas's. If those flowers are from your garden, they are beautiful!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. MMMMMMMM.... Zachary Quinto... er I mean... mmmmmmmm Zachary Quinto. Sorry, can't get my mind off Spock/Sylar. When does Heroes come back?

    ReplyDelete
  22. With a capital D and that rhymes with P and that stands for Pool

    Very clever of you to choose all the letters of the day to come up with random stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Don't mess with Oprah! O is Big Brother and she has secret police and cameras in each of our homes! I'm sorry Master O, please don't destroy me and my family! I'm using the Secret...

    ReplyDelete
  24. My garden says, "En Guard!!"

    Also, Cookie is good enough for me as well. I'm a simple man.

    ReplyDelete
  25. B is for bacon, its fuckin delicious! Oprah is a freak show! Im glad i dont have elephantitis!

    ReplyDelete
  26. The diabetes experts wanted me off my unhealthy Asian diet, so I've been forced to consume more pig (and eggs and dairy). Bleah. My blood sugar is still high, but I've gained weight. I think I'll leave the bacon to you and Tracy.

    ReplyDelete
  27. "it's a good fat!"
    I love that.
    I say it to the scale every morning.

  30. Loved your Random Tuesday thoughts. I would like to see more photos of your kick-ass garden. My garden would win the pathetic award, so no contest there. And I have to go see Star Trek movie since everyone's talking about it!

    ReplyDelete
  31. There's something off in your brain. Oh, and I married one of those assholes who casually uses HUGE words in every day sentences. I hate it but only because he makes me look dumb.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Zachary Quinto looks more like Spock than Nimoy did. If that makes sense. I mean, he looks JUST LIKE HIM. Crazy. And ubiquitous.

    ReplyDelete
  33. E is for ecstasy. I know how you roll.

    ReplyDelete

  35. Love your "forbidden love" award!

    I believe Oprah needs to leave on a jet-plane...soon! I am so NOT a fan.

    I am, however, a fan of bacon.

    Great RTT!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Did you know that Y chromosomes cause brain damage?

    It's true.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Great post! Somewhere cookie monster is smiling.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Everything about Oprah weirds me out. The woman is not human.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  41. Star Trek. Sigh. There's another movie I really want to see but won't get to because of the damn kids.

    ReplyDelete
  42. "C is for Cookie" is totally going to be in my head all night now.

    LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hahaha!!! I just saw your note above the comment box!

    I'm dying to talk about Start Trek but so many people haven't seen it yet, I don't want to give anything away. They sure did take some artistic license with Uhuru, didn't they?

    ReplyDelete
  44. I am needle pointing those bacon facts on a hand towel for my kitchen. The hubs will be thrilled!

    ReplyDelete
  45. my son's current obsession is the C is for Cookie song. i can't get it out of my head.

    ReplyDelete
  46. No fair. Your garden has a head start.

    Oprah is kind of the devil. You mean you hadn't noticed?

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm thinking you stretched that TUESDAY thing just a little bit, huh?

    If those flowers are from your garden, your garden DOES rawk!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Saw Eric Estrada in the Dallas airport a few years back. Dude looks beat down.

    ReplyDelete
  49. That was awesome. It confused me a bit in spots, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Tuesdayob. Very nice. I hope you saw Oprah today. Dane Cook was on. It was great!

    ReplyDelete
  51. your garden is going to kick my garden 's ASS?

    Bring it on.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I totally agree, Oprah is SUPER scary.

    Great news about the bacon! That just made my whole day. Do you think maybe bacon made Oprah scary? I get the feeling she eats a lot of bacon. Does that mean I'll become scary if I eat bacon? Hmmm, tough call. I'm going with the scary bacon. Good trade.

    I'm going to quit drinking now.

    ReplyDelete
  53. YAY!!! WAR between you and Vodka Mom...love it. You can't kick her GARDENERS ASS...she da queen...

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oprah totally freaks me out. I am totally convinced she is not human at this point.

    I'm going to improve my health by eating bacon now...have a good day!

    ReplyDelete
  55. You've convinced me that bacon is healthy.

    I shall subscribe to your blog.

    After seeing you all over the damn freakin' place.

    Just sayin'.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Ever listen to Jim Gaffigan? :)

    "Bacon bits are the fairy dust of food."

    LOL!

    And I loved the actor who did McCoy, too. He was my fav!

    ReplyDelete
  57. S is SO for Star Trek. I really thought they all did it justice, which is saying sometimes... especially McCoy, as you said. It was perfectly delicious, and I'm going back for seconds.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I'm not buying it, about the bacon. Anything that can make your hair and clothes smell that... greasy... canNOT be healthy.

    Amen.

  59. E is for ectoplasm.

    Obviously.

    ReplyDelete
