Sometimes when I'm not paying attention- which is actually quite a lot- my brain will drift into various directions. Usually at times like this, strange and ponderous musings will pop into my head unannounced and completely unexpected. Some of which actually frighten me.
I guess it comes with the territory, being as neurotic as I am, and since this is a neurotic blog, well I'd thought I'd share some thoughts with you.
Plus I figure someone out there reading this post (Hi Michael!), might actually have an answer, thus eliminating the need for me to do any actual research into the subjects at hand. Despite the fact that I'm the queen of useless knowlege, I can in fact, be quite lazy at times.
I'll start off with the scariest first ...
What ever happened to Mr. Belevedere? As in the show. I know the man himself has long since passed away, but I really want to know why the show isn't on anymore. Even for me, this question is so out in left field, I don't know what to do with it. I have no idea why I care, but I do know that now I have a strong hankering to watch the series.
I'll admit as a kid, I enjoyed watching it when it was on, but gee whiz I haven't seen it since I was about 10 years old. And honestly? I haven't thought about it since. Until about 2 weeks ago. Then I couldn't get it out of my head. I must see Mr. Belevedere!! This just makes no logical sense.
Speaking of butler shows, I also really enjoyed Benson. Sadly this show has disappeared from the airwaves as well. Yes I realize it aired in the late 70's/early 80's, but it was a damn fine show that needs to be brought back in reruns. Benson rocked people. He was always good for a chuckle or two with his snappy comebacks.
Come to think of it, I also really liked Niles from the Nanny, and Lurch from the Addams Family. For some reason Lurch was always my favorite, even though his speaking skills were less than stellar.
Oh great, I wonder if this means I have a butler fetish?
Just what was the deal with culottes? And why are they spelled so weird? (And why, when I looked them up on Google images did I get some porn sites? Can't say I was aware that culottes were so kinky. )
Now normally I embrace new fashions. but thank god I wasn't around when this one came to style, because frankly? They are FUGLY!
And what exactly are they? Shorts? A skirt? What? I guess what bothers me the most is their indecisive nature. I have enough trouble making decisions, I don't need my clothes to be indecisive too. And just why am I writing in italics? I can't seem to get my regular font back.
Why are some banana's impossible to open? This is actually a ponderous question, I just really want to know. It just doesn't make sense, because they actually have a handle. Yet some are so resistant to being opened, that I end up squishing the top. This is turn, breaks the peel in various sections, but does not actually open it. After several increasingly frantic attempts at pulling the handle, the darn thing still won't open, and all you have is a mess of banana oooz that has leaked out, from between the cracks. So very frustrating. Not to mention unappetizing when all is said and done.
Do horses sit down? Honestly don't they get tired of standing? I know I do. I tried to recall if I've ever seen a horse relaxing, and I can't say that I have. I have however seen them laying on the ground from time to time, but ... well you know, that's never a good thing.
I know they can sit down, because I've seen them do it on TV.
Apparently they can play ping pong, chess, and talk on the phone too, but do they sit?
Seriously though, most animals do have the ability to sit down, and will do so, when they feel like it. (Can you tell I'm a bit obsessed with this? ) I've seen cows do it. Giraffes. Dogs, cats, even iguana's. So what's the deal with horses? I'm guessing all that weight they carry around can't be very good for their back, and who wants to sleep standing up? That just seems like bad designing to me.
And last but certainly not least,
Why in the world do I always feel compelled to say thank you to the cop that pulled me over and gave me a ticket? It's like I want to be rude, or ignore them, but when they hand me the ticket and ask me sign, I always say a bight and cheery Thank you! The worst part is, I can't not do it.
WTF is up with that?
