I’m gonna pass…

…on this one,  thanks.    I don’t much enjoy massages anyway,  but definitely  not one  delivered by a python.   I can’t believe PETA hasn’t stormed into Germany demanding the cessation of the poor snake’s enslavement.

Creepy CEO…

leave a comment »

I’m sorry,  but Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos  piloting a  very tall robot which may or may not be able to actually do anything strikes me as rather creepy.   If,  as the article suggests,  this is basically a 13-foot tall puppet,  it is still quite impressive,  but it strikes me as a wildly costly way to show off.

Chuck Berry, R.I.P.

leave a comment »

Legendary singer Chuck Berry  has died,  having spent many of his 90 years belting out hits he wrote and performed for his legion of fans.   Unsurprisingly,  he was among the  first group  of performers inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.

His 1958 hit  “Johnny B. Goode”  is the only rock and roll song included on the so-called  “Golden Record”  affixed to the Voyager spacecraft that was launched into space in 1977.

UPDATE:  Have some remembrances,  here.

Unicorn toast?

leave a comment »

What the hell is unicorn toast?   Or mermaid toast?   Apparently there are a lot of people with too much time on their hands who live exceedingly dull lives and who think  toast topped  with naturally dyed cream cheese and sugary sprinkles in an array of pretty colors is a food trend devoutly to be wished for.

I adore cream cheese and use it in a variety of dishes,  but I don’t care to embarrass my homemade bread with pastel cream cheese,  far less sprinkles of any sort,  which I simply refuse to eat on anything,  even the standard doughnuts you customarily see them on.

Will someone please help these poor people get a life?

Pasta cooking…

leave a comment »

I seldom eat pasta because it has so many high-glycemic carbs, but I will definitely try  this method  the next time I make anything with pasta at home.   I suspect this technique requires that the book actually know what al dente pasta looks,  feels,  and tastes like.

In other words…

leave a comment »

…Wall Street millennials are a bunch of maladjusted,  weak-minded pansies who  can’t deal  with the real world very effectively.   Their Plan B is apparently to make enough money fast enough that they won’t be reduced to living in the gutter when they crash.   Color me singularly unimpressed.   This is just another reason why I want people with some backbone and toughness when I need financial advice.

Hillary’s horrid hair…

leave a comment »

I don’t know who convinced Hillary that a  short shaggy  do would be flattering,  but they have committed a sin in my eyes,  since all it does is draw attention to the huge bags under her eyes.   Didn’t we taxpayers pay to have those removed at least once when she was First Lady?

Oh yeah — Edward Klein says she’ll make  yet another  presidential run.
