a couple things to wrap up before the new year hits…

chasing those annoying dust bunnies out of my brain, as it were…

to the type-a women (and this one is mostly women) who have nothing better to do than bitch at the person in front of them in the grocery store express line because that person has 12 items instead of 10 – may your daughter seek the compassion she never got from you in the arms of a born-again christian cultist who refuses to work but has plenty of time to spawn a dozen children through your brood-mare child.

for the love of god when will people stop buying into the bullshit spewing forth form the following sources: the U.S. Government, Oprah, Bill O’Reilly, Donald Trump, ExxonMobil, TV News  (actually TV in general and news in general), the Kardashians, the Left wing,  the Right wing, Dave (he’s the guy always sitting in the corner at the local Dunkin’ Donuts).

New-Jersey-Prudential-CenterWe went to see Jeff Dunham at the Pru Center over the weekend.  The Pru Center is where the NJ Devils (NHL Hockey) play…when they’re playing, and the Seton Hall Pirates.  Needless to say it’s a large arena and we spent the concert watching the gigundous video screen over the stage ’cause Jeff & Co.  looked smaller than Munchkins from where we sat…so it was like spending a lot of extra money to watch another one of his videos.  But still, it was fun and funny.

After watching It’s A Wonderful Life for the 127th through 135th times this season, I noticed some additional trivial facts about the film.

  • Clarence states Harry broke through the ice at the age of nine…but Harry’s tombstone reads 1911 – 1919.  He would have only been eight.
  • When Burt the cop starts shooting at George, he misses him, but he does hit something.  The sign at the end of town that reads “Pottersville”.  The letters “sv” go dark during the shooting.
  • There was a minimum of nine years between the time Harry came home from college and the time he went to war.  That would have made him 31 years old and George 35.  (Harry was born in 1911.  Assuming he graduated high school at the age of 18, that was 1929.  Four years later he graduated college in 1933 at the age of 22.  Assuming he went to war in 1942 – recognizing 12/7/41 as the US entry into WWII – that’s nine years later – 22+9=31.  George was four years older – 35).  The fateful Xmas eve of the lost $8K and Harry’s return was after VJ Day – August 1945 – so say December 24 1945 – Harry would have been 34 and George 38.

And some people feel I think too much.

Jim CooperThere was a bake-off at work recently.  I won.  This shot is now hanging in the office.  You can stop laughing now.  Yeah that’s my cube…ahhh home, sweet, home.

Hope everyone has a healthy and satisfying 2013!

  1. ok, so i don’t bitch at the person in the express line because it’s not worth causing a scene but am i allowed to have nasty thoughts? also, i silently judge the store if the sign say, “10 or less.” it should say, “10 or fewer.” not that i’m pedantic or anything.

    congrats on your cube title. now are you going to tell us what delicious recipe you baked and entered for the win?

    happy new year to you and your family!

  2. Sorry haven’t been back for a long while. I obviously need to work on my creative curses as evangelical brood mare daughter never crossed by consciousness before. You are still hilarious and worth visiting. Have a wonderful New Year.

  3. Happy New Year to you too, Cooper. We saw Jeff Dunham in a huge arena once too. He was funny. Just like he is on TV. In fact, it was JUST like on TV because like you we couldn’t see much more than a tiny guy up there on stage. I do love him, though. And Peanut is my hero.

    Congratulations on the bake off!

  4. I have never watched that movie, though I make up for it in The Christmas Story viewings.
