“It’s made me avoid being outside — I use the treadmill rather than walk outside. And it’s caused me to walk around saying, ‘It’s hot!’ as if everyone didn’t already know.”

Left town for Oregon. 69 degrees and partly cloudy at lunch on the patio. Won't enjoy returning in August.

Roed - Cheat sheet.

Fred Willard - The funniest parts of Best in Show, which is a really funny movie, featured this guy. He is 72 and was busted for jacking it in a porn theater yesterday.

Ken Burns - PBS documentary maker. Did one on baseball that the baseball people really liked. Also, creepy. Find a youtube video.

Justified - An awesome show on tv featuring a US Marshall that gets relocated back to where he grew up in bumflip Kentucky. RI would hate it. Lot of guns and wanton killing. Kind of like an updated Western. The cast is littered with "that guy" character actors. I just ordered season #1 for $16 off ebay. I never did see that whole season. Season #2 was one of the finest seasons of tv ever. Season #3 was slightly not as good, but the damn payoff was every much the equal of Season #2.

I assume you know who Marco Rubio is.

"Like Ken Burns never masturbated in a movie theater."

That guy gives me the creeps. I bet he has several adolescent boys stuffed under his bad.

Never heard of Downton Abbey, had to look it up. Not going to watch it. Too many actors with bad teeth.

PBS just fired Fred Willard. So, that frees up some money.

Autie had more concerns. About the lack of spending money on public broadcasting. I'm feeling a bit woozy, maybe I should go lay down. I think that "All Things Considered" should be on TV every evening.

Really dude, don't put anything into awards that folks give themselves.

Elvis received three Grammys, all for his gospel work. Now that is whack.

Justified won best actress last year. Downtown Abbey is popular? I thought only old stodgy types watched it.

Vast wasteland and Justified is King.

Bob is not mainstream. Something I like about him. I hear he goes commando too

Maybe you should just watch more popular shows.

It is a vast wasteland.

I'll be glad when we can all drive on the SLT and catch a breeze.

Tween Zombies Invade City at Daybreak

The moaning cries of "speeeeeeennnnnddddd" can be heard coming from packs devouring their prey. Looks devastating. I know these creatures get bolder in the light of day. We can only hope the heat drives them away.

"Boil Lancing Day"?

I thought it was "Flitch Day"

An old English custom from long ago eventually turned into a holiday called Flitch Day, which is celebrated on July 19. Every year on this day, since about the year 1104, any married couple who could prove they had been faithful and loving to one another for one year was awarded half a pig, known as a flitch of bacon. However, very few couples would actually "bring home the bacon!"

I've been shaving the lemurs to help them keep cool.

I'll tell you a little secret.
If you cut a hole big enough to fit your head through in a pair of Depends, you can wear them upside down and they'll keep your shirt from getting sweaty. You don't have to thank me, I live to give.

I went jogging last night at 9:30 instead of right after work because the night before I got a tad dizzy from the heat. At 9:30 it was still 94 degrees outside. Like Bob, not much mowing, even though I water some. I am using more deodorant. I really don't mind hot weather that much. I do wish we coud get some rain. Oh, I did take the electric blankets off the bed. And I am punching people harder that ask me, "Hot nuff fer ya?"

It's cutting into my grill time. The hamburgers aren't as appetizing at six in the morning. I s'pose they be good after sundown but that's too late for me.

Happy Boil Lancing Day!

I currently am not maintaining any routines. I used to do one with a few jokes and a soft shoe number but it got dry.
