MKMOT (August 27, 2012)

Hello Friends.

How were your weekends? Splendid? Grand.

This weekend I had a little cough (don't worry, I didn't let it get me down). I also read a disturbing article about chicken processing. I also ended up watching the movie Contagion. You know what's a really bad idea? Watching the movie Contagion when you have a little cough and just read a disturbing article about chicken processing. Jesus we're all gonna die a horrible death. I think I'll stay inside today, well away from you disease spreading virus factories.

Speaking of disease spreading virus factories, Skeevy is on vacation this week. What does that mean to the balog? Not a lot, except a much better music selection and an editor with an itchier comment delete finger.

It's Monday. It's open. Go nuts.

  2. I fucking hated Contagion. But I love Gwyneth Paltrow dying a miserable death. So conflicted.

    I remember going, basically in tears, to my junior high science teacher after seeing Outbreak, and he consoled me by telling me that the reality was much more frightening than the movie.

    1. I'm just stoked that tomorrow Sons of Anarchy season 4 comes out on DVD/Blu Ray. Finally I can once again share something with my wife besides our children and mutual spite and indifference. I loved that season, and she hasn't seen it, and the new season starts in like 3 weeks or so. In other words, I'm pretty ganked up about the whole thing.

      Any other SAMCRO fans?

    2. I came into it about 15 minutes late, so I missed most of the Paltrow parts (yay!) but also her dying (boo!). I liked it overall, except for every single second Jude Law was onscreen.

      I'd say your teacher was kind of an asshole.

    3. I have bad news for you which is that pretty much all Gwynneth did was die. My God, Shallow Hal would have been infinitely better and more realistic had they taken that approach.

      Also, as a vegetarian and germophobe, I applaud your decision to stay away from both chicken and Gamboa Constrictor.

      And, yeah, I think that particular science teacher was eventually fired for some sort of untoward relationship with a student. So, you know, grain of salt.

      I'll allow it, mostly because Burke gave absolutely no indication he was being sarcastic, and deserves to be called out for it.

      And yes, if you've got some criticism, put your name to it, mmk? This applies to both of you.

    3. I'll give you that it wasn't the best attempt I've seen at sarcasm, but I still think it was really obvious he wasn't being serious.

      Fight me.

    4. I think the article was obviously sarcastic, but his reply to Arkansas Fred was not.

      Then again, fight ME.

    5. Guys, guys. If I punch you both in the kidneys, can we stop this silliness?

    6. All I have to say is I read somewhere that the inability to recognize sarcasm is a warning sign of alzheimers.

      What were we talking about?

    1. Sure!! You wanna talk about anything in particular?

    2. Not really. Just looking to add some flavor to a bland day.

    3. Oh. Way to get my hopes up for nothing, jerkface.

    4. I'm sorry. This is pretty embarrassing for me. I'm just going to go hide somewhere.

  5. But there's a world out there, full of all manner of topics, from the messy to the cheesy, from mildly controversial to altogether-too-hot. With what shall we fill our mouths?

    1. That's up to you. All I know is that it's important to think carefully before talking. You never want to gain a reputation as a "foot in mouth" type.

      Delete
    2. Oh, I never make any ill-considered decisions. I try to cover all angles before opening my mouth.

      Delete
    3. Yeah, I'm the same way. I make sure to pay close attention to detail, because I only want people saying positive things behind my back.
