monday morning musings...pre caffeine

  • George Carlin died on Sunday. Why is that so weird to me?
  • Two of the Sisters' of G's Mom (Aka wife #2) will have bypass surgery next week. I'm worried for my sisters, they are worried for their mom. Sometimes family is a big worry circle.
  • The Princess Bride is in my top 5 movies ever.
  • Mama G and I will be going to the Hampton Jazz Festival with Oldest Sister of G. I'm most excited about Jill Scott on Saturday and Joss Stone on Sunday.
  • They're making a new Muppets movie and supposedly trying to bring the Muppets back to their 80's glory. That would make me VERY happy.
  • Mama G will be staying with me. This calls for the kind of cleaning that leaves lungs filled with chemicals and knees raw. At some point she'll say something that will hurt my feelings because she doesn't know that I'll spend all week worrying and cleaning and trying to figure out how to make her comfy and happy. The rest of the time we'll have a blast.
  • Life is damned complicated sometimes.
  • Why does no one want to go to the Dave Matthews concert with me in August?
  • I've been having dreams about a tall guy named Rodger who designs websites. If that's you please get out of my dreams and into my car :)

If they are reviving the Muppets then I hope they open the movie the same weekend as the Smurfs movie... It will be an 80s kids characters battle royale.... (while they are at it why not make a Great Space Coaster movie and revive Fraggle Rock too)

It sucks when you start really knowing the celebrities that are dying of old age. It means you are getting old. But not you, me I mean...

How was the beach?

WNG said...

Doc - I have always, ALWAYS wanted to direct a Fraggle Rock movie. I know that makes me a big dork, but I think it would be awesome.

NoR you are not getting old, cut it out. And actually I ended up in bed all weekend, now don't get all excited, I was watching dvds and sleeping. For some reason I was exhausted all weekend.

Ok G I am SUPER JEALOUS of the Jill Scott/Joss Stone weekend and just seriously looked at if I could head out to Jazz fest myself. I missed Jill in Houston then I was gonna try to catch her in Philly cause I knew that would be OFF the HOO! Then it was too late to do that. Anyway I am on record that I am very jealous because you get to see her and Joss Stone. And I guess if you turn up ticket-less when you get ready to head to the festival my hand should be the first place the law looks!

It’s hard for me to believe Carlin is dead also. I just looked in the screen this morning. I was raised on him and Richard Pryor I know that is horrible. But I remember being very young watching both of their acts and pretending that I didn’t get all of the jokes that I did get and trying to figure out the ones I didn’t get.

I feel you Mamma OG is coming here to visit in a month and I am already fretting, but luckily she pretty easy going, but I still worry sometimes.

Wait a second.

Hold the phone.

Everyone just STOP.

THEY'RE MAKING ANOTHER MUPPETS MOVIE??? WHY WASN'T I INFORMED???

Excuse me while I go kiss the sky.

WNG said...

OG - We have an extra ticket for Saturday and Sunday night. They're $50 each and I have them posted on Craigslist but if you want them let me know!

Jonah - I read it in the Rolling Stone, kiddo. Pretty cool, huh? Your lady returned to her former glory, no more crappy Muppets Under The Sea... ahhh...life is good!

Susan said...

I would try to leave a nice comment but after the "sheep" comment I'm just going to sit here and pout.

WNG said...

Oh come on - that's funny! PLUS I got it from a Mountaineer!!!

NoRegrets said...

Well, she didn't make a crack on WV women at least.

NoRegrets said...

directly

Susan said...

Remind me to tell you two a story regarding a guy in the town I live in nicknamed "sheepy"...

WNG said...

No, I did not NoR...directly...

SEE! SEE!!!
Told you.
Ok, spill the story on 'sheepy'!

Jay said...

Hope everyone's surgeries work out well!

Jill Scott rocks.

Mmmmm Joss Stone ;-)

Susan said...

I can't type it out, G. This is a story that needs vodka.

WNG said...

You can't eat her Jay!

Ok, Susan, I am holding you to that. I supply the vodka, you supply the story!

OG, The Original Glamazon said...

Well, I need to check some last minute travel. $50 that is it! Man now I'm even MORE jealous. I let you know after I see what it cost to get to Hampton in a few days notice. Last miute deals here I come. *lol*

re Fraggle Rock: Let the music play!

I remember when George Burns died. I was a youngster, but I was sad. Burns and Allen re-runs were my fav late night tv in my formative years.

I recommend forsaking the lung-burning chemical cleaners for something less corrosive. Seventh Generation All Purpose Cleaner works better than all the evil (read: Dow) cleaners I've ever tried. It's stronger than my usual go-to cleaner (Biokleen, I think) and is, therefore, reserved for days when only uber-clean will suffice. Consider this a public service announcement.

G,


You keep using zat word. I do not sink it means wat you sink it means.


Dave Matthews: If you ever move to Seattle, I'll hook you up with a female friend of mine who is a TOTAL Dave Matthews fan. Myself, I just can't see it...

WNG said...

OG - the Sunday ticket is gone, but Saturday is still available. Plus I think there are still some on the HJF website. C'mon down!!!

Slag,
this is straight up bleach and water time. Actually it was apple vinegar and newspaper on my windows, bleach lemon and water in my kitchen and bathroom. Tonight I tackle the living room...Lord help me!
His live shows are awesome, Gye, but none of my friends up here get it either...oh well...
