The Line for Autographs Forms to Your Left

My old buddy, Ed (who I worked with back in thie mid/late 90’s…eek), informed me yesterday that my blog was listed in Sunday’s Boston Globe! This is the second time…that I’m aware of, at least (they never notify me). Apparently, somebody thought my posting about bubble gum and patchouli was worth publishing (all the news that’s fit to print, they say). YAY ME.

I’m not going to let this go to my head, though (yeah right).

In other news, I’m getting together with Jason (Ex Post Facto) tomorrow night for some more Rummy and for some White Christmas on DVD (we’re so gay). I’m hoping visions of Rosemary Clooney crooning “Love, You Didn’t Do Right By Me” will distract him from the card game…leading me to my second consecutive win.

Now, I’m normally all about the holidays. Beginning in September when I first start seeing those television ads for the Time-Life Christmas album (which I own), I start getting in gear for the holidays. Hell, it’s still November and I’ve already had my Christmas Tree decorating party. But I must say I miss the old holiday advertising. Nothing beats the original “I don’t want to grow up, I’m a Toys-R-Us kid, they’ve got the best for so much less you’ll really flip your lid. From bikes to trains to video games, it’s the biggest toy store there is. GEE WIZZ! I don’t want to grow up cuz’, baby, if I did – I wouldn’t be a Toys-R-Us kid.” But then in the late 90’s/early 2000’s they tried that rap version…which was just sick and wrong. For a while, that was my least favorite holiday ad.

But now I think my least favorite commercial is the one for the automaker Lexus. I mean, come on. How many people surprise their spouses with a freaking Lexus for Christmas?

…and why isn’t that man dating me?

    Why isn’t that man dating you? How selfish? Why isn’t that man dating me?

    where on earth are you going to *PARK* a lexus? — will you be sporting your gold tooth cap (a la missy e) with the diamond “K” when you drive said lexus? — be very careful what you wish for, you may get it. i dont mean the lexus either.

    You would be scary in a Lexus. What the heck is patchouli anyway?

    Patchouli is a popular incense scent. Some say it smells like marijuana. I never thought so.

    But it still makes me happy.

    What, does the Sunday Globe have an incense section? See what I miss when I get all my news on-line. Sheesh! Hey, congrats, though! That’s fun.

    Maybe I’ll whip up a post about sandlewood or something 😉

    My brother drives a Lexus. He let me drive it once. It was very, very nice.

    Yeah, but your brother isn’t gay, in Massachusetts, or offering me a new car!

    Thanks Karl. I thought Patchouli was some sort of middle eastern food. Today is a good day I learned something…
