Scrubs Stuff






Before reading this thread: I never really thought much about the TV show "Scrubs". After answering quite a few of the questions correctly I've come to realize that...

I'm a Scrubbie - and I'm proud. (you know, like Trekkies - only we just wear scrubs...or date scrubs...or we scrub non porous surfaces)



I've decided to have a Scrubs trivia game (yes I copied some of the questions from the Dope board.)

1. What actor does Dr. Cox dislike with an amazing intensity?

2. Why does Carla's brother HATE Turk?

3. The show has taught us the way to stop men from listening to women's conversations. What technique is used?

4. Why was the original divorce of Jordin and Dr. Cox invalid?

5. Name Ted's a capella band.

6. What did The Janitor get as a birthday gift when he turned 12?

7. What's a "stinkbug"?

8. What did J.D. do to get Turk's frat brothers so angry?

9. What disease does Turk use to get Carla's sympathies?

10. Who's sister did J.D. take to the fair with Dr. Cox and Jordin?

Nice Guy Stuff

I've been hitting links all morning and came across a page I like. (link http://www.heartless-bitches.com/rants/niceguys/comments35.shtml) The page had a whole section dedicated to "Nice Guys" and I was inspired to write a bit about nice guys here.

I've dated guys that I had to leave because of boredom. For some reason, my friends and I classified these dudes as "nice guys" and we decided that "that" type of dude wouldn't cut it - not for the fly chicks of Hollis, Queens in 1975.

The basic premise carried over into my adult life and I never questioned the authenticity of the title I hung on these dudes. I just avoided them (nice guys)as I did the dentally impaired (no teefus), the commonsenseless (stupido), the too cheap to tip idiots, the still living with their moms goofballs and the too much cologne - too little soap gents (stinkies).

I have coworkers, neighbors and associates who I deem "nice guys" based on one commonality: boooooooring. They'll tell me stories of women who dump them for "bad boys" and wonder why "nice guys always finish last." i use to sympathize - now I know better.

I realize that the self proclaimed nice guys aren't necessarily nice -a guy can be as boring as hell because he's a self centered bitch. Some of the boring guys can only discuss Star Wars or Spiderman with any animation - ask about the federal deficit or the immigration debate and the conversation falls flat.

I dated a guy a few years ago that I decided would be good for me because he was so nice. (meaning not very hot, but not embarassingly uncool) He seemed generous and kind - he invited me to Atlantic City for our first date for dinner.

We took a long walk down the boardwalk and I learned that he was an excellent listener (know better now translation: he had ZERO to add to the conversation.) The first kiss was miserably unsexy but I looked at his lack of skill as charming - I would teach him. (never again)

As we began dating more frequently, (I was determined that I needed a "nice guy" so I told myself to stick it out) I learned some disturbing things - he didn't tip well( he wasn't generous unless there would be a direct benefit to himself), and he could be unbelieveably set in his ways. He was corny - he wanted to walk around the mall holding my hand and I went through with it reluctantly the first couple of times. The third weekend in a row that he wanted to take me to the mall (to fucking walk around holding hands) was the eyeopener. I couldn't hack it with this boring, selfish, color by number stay within the lines guy anymore.
Nice guys that finish last aren't really nice guys at all (I said "atall" like Forrest Gump). They're whiney boring guys.

Complaining Stuff

1. I'm sick to death of the Oil of Olay commercials featuring 22 year old models illustrating how well their "age defying" shit works. Do they think we're really that stupid?

2. I'm sick of the car commercials quoting prices and showing vehicles with a small print disclaimers advising that cars as shown are about 6,000 bucks more than the prices they just quoted. All of the car companies do it.

3. I'm sick of late night TV being "sell you some stupid shit you don't need" for 3 easy payments of $29.95 time. Natural cures the gov't doesn't want you to know about, weight loss miracle drugs, hip-hop abs, penny stock investments, miracle workout your lower abs balls, government home auctions, clear your acne like Britney did in these (retouched) photos, make you glow - then get you a man miracle face powders, Jack LaLane miracle juicers, choppers, fryers, broilers, steamers, dehydrators, vacuumers, air purifyers - these are almost all available for 4 - no, call within the next 6 minutes and we'll make it just 3 easy payments of $29.95.

4. I'm sick of the phone company offer to try our service for a month and if you don't like it, the calls are on us - yeah, but you're still stuck with their phone.

5. I'm sick of the Allstate commercial claiming new car replacement (if you pay the premium) for up to 3 years if your car is totaled. I wonder how many cars the adjusters actually concede are totaled and how many they claim can be repaired.

6. I'm sick to death of playlists on every FM station. Payola must die!

7. I'm sick of TV newspeople trying to make themselves celebrities. Just read the news!

8. I'm sick of Rosie O'Donnel. I don't care about anything to do with her life.

9. I'm sick of Britney/Paris/Lindsay/etc.(same M.O. different names)

10. I'm sick of the Republican Party. Period! The Democrats aren't far behind.

What are you sick of?

Odd Stuff



Anyone remember these guys?


MUNDANE SECTION - MUNDANE SECTION - MUNDANE SECTION - MUNDANE SECTION

My pen is almost out of ink. I usually wait until there is no ink left to replace it, but I'm thinking about going to Staple's today and I just might buy a new pen. I haven't been to Staple's in a while so there just might be new items I can use. Maybe I'll go online a little later to see what they have to offer and I can make a day of it. Wow. That'll be fun!

Someone gave me one of those red buttons from Staple's a little while back. I had it on my desk for a few days, but it seemed that everyone that passed my desk had to push the button and make snarky comments, so I put the button in my top desk drawer and finally took it home,along with my birthday cards from people in the office. (jali looks in drawer to see what's in the drawer)

Wow! Here's a pen. I guess I won't need to go to Staple's after all.

END MUNDANE SECTION-END MUNDANE SECTION-END MUNDANE SECTION-ENDMUNDANE SECTION

I don't want to hear that this whole bloggity blog is mundane.

Will be back to edit. Quick post due to orders from miss mist. (love to say that)

Bunch 'O Stuff


I watched the classic film, "A Pocketful of Miracles" last night. It's one of my favorite stories of all time and the character interaction, the acting and the direction (by Frank Capra)are all outstanding. It's the story of Apple Annie (Bette Davis), a Broadway street vendor and Dave the Dude (Glen Ford) a local mob boss with a big dream. Annies sells Dave the Dude her lucky apples and his businesses (shady of course) are all successful. I don't want to give away the story so I won't say anything more, but LISTEN TO ME - GO GET THIS MOVIE AND WATCH IT THIS WEEKEND.
Some of the cast: Bette Davis, Glen Ford, Peter Falk, Hope Lange, and the debut of Anne Margaret.


I watch TV regularly, so I see certain commercials on a pretty regular basis. I have a new love/hate list.

The "Mother's Day" Publix (local supermarket chain) commercial showing 3 dads and their kids preparing a special breakfast for their moms is sweet. I stop to watch every time it comes on. (stopping on a dime get's more difficult with age - it's comedy watching me jerk to see the commercial if I was doing something else and my chiropractor loves it)

I hate the commercial that explains that one would need 2 trucks to pull 20 trillion pounds unless you use the "whatever truck they're advertising" with the enclosed pull thingie (cue to a guy showing us the enclosed thingie). Do most truck buyers across the country actually haul shit? In Atlanta, most truck owners use their trucks to 1. block the highways during rush hour, 2. make it difficult for non-truck people to back out of parking spaces, and 3. generally block the view of people driving behind or besides them so.


Speaking of TV - the last episode of House moved me to tears. Both brothers (ages 10 and 14) were willing to die for the other. Amazing story despite the crazy medicine and crazier ethics.


I pick Melinda Doolittle to win Idol this year. She's an amazing talent. People may hate the show so: Turn it off - there are other channels to watch and other things to do. I don't understand the people who "vote for the worst" - why screw up someone's chance for something you claim to hate? Sabrina was voted off waaaay to early because of the bullshit.

Old Craving Stuff









I'm just posting photos of snacks from my childhood that I really miss. I'm just in a nostalgic mood.

Drake's Cakes aren't readily available in Georgia which is a good thing since I don't need the extra fat. I can't decide which is best: Devil Dogs, Yodels, Funnybones, Swiss Rolls or the Apple Pies...damn, the thought bring a tear to my eye.
(Little Debbies are the popular snack cakes here. Sigh)

I miss the Good Humor truck and the Good Humor dude on the beach! The boxed bars found in the grocery store just aren't the same to me. (Another tear)

Wise Onion and Garlic potato chips - I haven't seen these for years - the bag in the photo isn't the one I knew and loved.

The Cadbury "Air Bar" with the bubbles was my favorite - alas - can't find them these days. My father got a case of these at an estate sale and all of us were hooked.

What snacks do you miss?
