Zombie Man in Shoppingland

Thanks for the cathartic laugh. You know the culture is toast when the Superbowl produces a Saturday blacker than any Friday following Thanksgiving Day. Oddly enough, chicken wings go on sale at ridiculously low prices today, and we cleaned up nicely. Is hall be making them without the necessity of having a football game on the Telly. We aren't into Moveable Piles of Men all that much round here. Enjoy your weekend, Gerard.

Yeah, I guess it is Superbowl Weekend. If the Lions ever make it there in my lifetime (they haven't yet), I may watch. Otherwise, I'll probably find something else to do. Like go to Costco...

Friday at Sam's wasn't so bad. Some of the BBQ pork was tasty, and I didn't have to make lunch. (I was doing my regular shopping.) But the thought of Saturday was purely scary. What were you thinking??

Oh, wait. There's a football game today? Who's playing??

When I turned 70, 13 years ago, I vowed never again to set foot in a store unless I could see the exit from anywhere in the store. So far I've kept the vow. Yea, it's cost me some $$, but I've retained my mental and physical health.

"Welcome to Costco. I love you. Welcome to Costco. I love you. Welcome to Costco. I love you..." - from the movie Idiocracy.

(That wasn't a comedy, but a warning.)

Costco needs BETTER lighting, apparently...

I can tell by your last couple of posts, complaining about the rain, that you're not from around these parts.

Speaking as a native Washingtonian,I can only say that it will either get better or it will get worse for you. This hasn't even been a particularly wet winter. There have been plenty of years when it rained continuously from October to August. One can generally always count on rain for the fourth of July, but we've had unseasonably dry weather for the last few years.

I love the rain because without it who knows how many more lunatics from California would be living on Queen Anne?

waltj, the Lions win the Superbowl? Ahahahahahahahahahaha . . . um . . . sorry, but after watching the Lions "rebuild" for the past 50 years . . . well . . . you know . . .

Well, Harry, you're not wrong to laugh. The Lions have been mediocre--or far worse--for longer than I'd like to remember. At least can say the Lions have won an NFL title in my lifetime. Of course, at the time, Eisenhower was President, the AFL didn't exist, I was in diapers, and had no idea what football even was, so that's not exactly a comforting thought when it comes to the fortunes of my old hometown football team.

Gerard: If I had never heard of America before, I would get on to your website to find out what the fuss was all about. It's almost necessary to fasten some virtual seatbelt before logging on.
Thanks for hours of fascinating reading/watching/thinking.
