random Saturdayness

I just bagged up 3 Hefty bags of clothes that are now too big. It’s the opposite of why I’m usually bagging up clothes to give away.

My son said, “if I had 92 more dollars I’d have $100.” He’s such an optimist.


Today I discovered that Kashi Go Lean Crunch with flax and honey tastes like the old Sugar Crisp cereal.

Remember when Kellogg’s and Post could call cereal “Sugar” whatever. There was Sugar Crisp, Sugar Smacks, and one was called Sugar Frosted something or other, but I can’t remember what. Sugar Crisp was the best because its mascot was called Sugar Bear. Both Sugar Crisp and Sugar Smacks are now called something else – Golden Crisp and Honey Smacks. That’s supposed to make them sound healthier, but I’ll always know them as their sugary old names. You can’t fool me, Sugar Bear.

As a kid, I never liked super sugary cereals. Seriously, Cracklin’ Oat Bran was my favorite. That cereal is the bomb, yo.

Hold everything. South of Heaven, West of Hell is on. It’s the only Western I know of that stars Vince Vaughn. Vince Vaughn, Pee Wee Herman, Dwight Yoakam, Billy Bob Thornton, and the old Mr. Noodle from Elmo’s World on Sesame Street. Y’all, Vince Vaughn in a Western. It’s one of those “so bad it’s kinda awesome” movies. It’s a Western and there is a machine gun in the first 20 minutes of the movie. It’s a Western and a chick in the movie says “I bet you was real handsome when you got shot.” It’s a Western that is completely bizarre. It should be called South of Preposterous, West of Insanity.

Also, Dwight Yoakam should never take his hat off.

And as a director and screenwriter, Yoakam is a wonderful musician.

Did I mention his name is “Valentine” in the movie? It is.

I got a new vacuum cleaner. There were 420 parts to it. I dropped an attachement on my face and it hurt. After I got the thing together, I vacuumed my bedroom and managed to empty the canister into my lap instead of the bag I was attempting to put the dust and junk in. It was gross. And dusty.

Did I mention that I have terrible allergies? The dust did not help.

A guy in this movie says “gub’ment” for “government.” And Dwight’s deputy wears dresses. The deputy is a man.

I could go for some Crackin’ Oat Bran right now.
