I love that TNT and SpikeTV are having a Nerd Off ... one is showing Lord of the Rings all day and the other is showing Star Wars.

I won't reveal which one I'm watching.

The weekend ended too quickly, as did my life tonight when I turned on the "Self Clean" option on my stove and nearly passed out from smoke inhalation before I realized what was going on.

Sundays always go fast because either Adam or I have the time constraint of whatever bus/train that is leaving to go back to our respective state. You realize, sometimes though, that distance doesn't always matter after the following spurred a very amusing text-message-conversation.

I was incredibly amused when Jesus Taco stuck a delivery menu under my front door.






Not that I'd ever want to order from them, but everytime I pass their storefront I sort of have to laugh. So I sent Adam a text message to let him know that < waving hands excitedly> THEY NOW DELIVERED!!



Me: Jesus Taco just slipped a menu under the door!!
Adam: Take this taco. It is my body which is given for the forgiveness of sins.
Me: This is not salsa. It is my blood. Take it in remembrance of me.
Me: These are my taco kisses. Honor my sacrifice by accepting them.



In other peculiarly funny things, has anyone else seen this Celebrex commercial that is like, 4 minutes long, seems to disparage Celebrex extensively, and then ends up being a commercial telling you to buy it? I'm not sure whether it's using reverse psychology or what.

"Celebrex! It's dangerous!! It'll keeel you! Buy it buy it buy it!!!!!

I think they should stick with Millard Fillmore Soap-On-A-Rope

I can't imagine trying to watch LotR on TV. The movies are long enough as they are before you start adding advertising to them.

OTOH, it can't be as bad as the time FOX aired Pulp Fiction...

Haha. Did they have to censor every third minute?

And we've been watching the trilogy all day while doing other things. Thankfully, the commercials are "limited"

As I recall, besides the incredible censoring, they also shuffled everything around so that the movie barely made sense anymore.

Considering how loosely put together it was before (most people couldn't comprehend the timeline originally) it's not surprising! But why in the world would they shuffle it?

It was WB, actually, unless Fox has tried it too.

...Please do not commit accidental suicide by stove; I'd hate for the police to come in after you're reported missing and find the cats gnawing on your body. At least not for many, many years, since I'm sure it will happen eventually. Speaking of eating, is Jesus Taco actually holy? Can you kill a Vampire by staking it with one of their Chimichangas? Is their salsa made with Holy water?

I'll commit stoveicide if I so desire! And man, those cats probably WILL eat me.

I don't actually know how holy Jesus Taco is. Next time you're over, we'll order in from them and find out. If I burn from the inside out, we'll know.

Until it closed recently, my Chinese delivery Place of Choice was called "Jackie Chan".

Eeugh. He doesn't sound particularly edible. Maybe a little stringy.

And we usually order from "Empire" which is Chinese AND Japanese food. (don't ask me how that works)

Ah, but their Drunken Master Noodles were quite good.

...or they would be if they actually had such a product.

Maybe they're trying cigarette marketing.
