January 20 is the birthday of this blog. The first idiotic post was a year ago and I think I’ve kept the idiocy going pretty nicely, don’t you Internet?
In honor of this anniversary, some lovely birthday presents have shown up. All on their own. Inadvertently. Without even knowing of this special moment. Went out to lunch Saturday with some close friends from work. We had a great time blabbing about everything and hogged the table for nearly 2 hours at a busy restaurant in New London. Look at these lovely confections that my friend presented me with…
Leaving New London, I headed over to Newbury Harbor to buy my blog the most perfect birthday present that there is: BACON!
Yes, I said BACON! OK, maybe that’s not the perfect blog birthday present, but I figure any kind of pork would be pretty darn good. Not just any old crappy sliced up pig belly. North Country Smokehouse’s Applewood Smoked Bacon. There’s a nice little store in Newbury Harbor plaza called “Newbury News”. They feature one of the North Country Smokehouse’s bacon flavors each month at a 50 cent per pound discount.
The final, and most disturbing (yet superficially appropriate) inadvertent present was this STUPID looking clock that my wife bought somewhere. It’s stupid because it looks like a Wedgewood china plate trapped in some kind of basket contraption. When I asked how much this ultra-queer looking timepiece cost, I got this formulation: “It was 25% off of $45.” That’s code for “At least I didn’t pay FULL PRICE for this $33.75 piece of shit!” Well, yes you did, and the full price was $33.75.
Turns out that the ultra-premium natural fiber blend (i.e. paper and cardboard) face of the clock had a big warpage going from 7 to 10 o’clock. We don’t need that kind trouble every morning and evening. So that clock’s going back to the WalMart, Dollar Store, CVS, or whatever retail hellhole it came from.
So that’s it for Thoughts-0-Dave first birthday presents. Like most one-year-olds, this blog has been lots of fun, with an occasional puke in your lap. Sorry about that Internet! I’ve learned almost nothing useful for my everyday life by blogging this past year! But it’s been a lot of fun, and a doctor once told me that fun is good. That was Dr. Seuss. So I will probably keep posting, until you tell me to stop. Thanks for reading!
