News, but not the serious kind

Holy moly! Nonstop Jolie!

Blog Guy, you often write about Angelina Jolie. Has her new movie had its premiere yet?

Well, I can only speak for Berlin, Paris, London, Moscow, Seoul, Tokyo and Hollywood. I know it has premiered there because we moved photos of her at each place.

RUSSIA/SEVEN cities? That’s very generous of Reuters, free publicity-wise. How does that compare with your coverage of the endless Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz odyssey recently to promote their new move?

So far, Jolie is one city ahead of them.

And why is it newsworthy every time she shows up in a different city to plug the same movie?

You don’t understand journalism. We never know if she might announce a new policy on global warming or the economy or the New York City mosque.

I see. Still, she IS just an actress. Any other reason you would cover every stop?

Sure, to see what she eats while she’s watching her movie. Sometimes it’s Junior Mints, or Cheese Nachos, or wienerschnitzel and hasenpfeffer and schnapps…

Wienerschnitzel and hasenpfeffer and schnapps in a movie theater?

In Berlin. Don’t even ask….

Therefore Angelina got her “Know Your Rights” tattoo sometime between July 27 and August 18.

Her hand is bigger than her head; I bet she could palm a basketball, even as cold as it is…

I bring joyous news people.
Krispy Kreme are now serving the fabled Luther Burger, in Wisconsin.
This is a cheeseburger made using a glazed Krispy Kreme dount, and for an additional $1 you can get chocolate-coated bacon added.

Holy crap! I thought you were joking, Nosmo. Clearly this is a clever plan by the University of Wisconsin Alumni Association to lure me to the state….

Poor Angelina Jolie has begun the mummification process a tad too soon. She is officially (at least to me) off the list as eye candy.

Nosmo… who knew a complete state of euphoria could be achieved for only an additional $1!

If she visits a country in which insects are a delicacy, would Jolie eat Rolly Polly Stromboli?

I have three stitched up knife scars on one of my hands, and it still looks better than hers. I’m happy. Shallow maybe, but happy.

Crow, we all begged you not to let Nurse come stay with you.

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive
 

I’d like to think that Knit_Nurse would do a better stitching job than any of these.

Crow, it’s none of my business, but are these scars from three different knife fights, or one single pirate attempt to board your galleon, or what?

CrowGirl might have gotten three knife scars on her hand but that’s nothing compared to what those special forces operatives that tried to apprehend her suffered.

One knife throwing incident, one trying to scrape some wax out of a bowl event, one realisation that scalpels really don’t help with garden drainage systems. Seven stitches, nine steristrips, half a tube of medical superglue, five injections against diseases. Sadly, no pirates.

CrowGirl..please don’t tell me someone threw a knife at you and you tried to catch it like a ninja! Or rather, that would be pretty awesome if you did!

*Disclaimer: Don’t have people throw knives at you and try to catch them like a ninja! Unless they are Nerf knives. That would be ok then. Or unless you actually are a ninja.*

There may have been a summer job as a knife thrower’s girlie assistant in my mis-spent youth…

Oooh that reminds me! I found a Krispy Kreme in the airport at Heathrow this week while I was there! I took a picture but I didn’t get a doughnut. I’d used up all my sterling before I knew it was there.

Watch my Facebook page for London photos this weekend!

:D

I surprised my wife with a new car last night, a 2010 Ford Edge. We looked a few weeks ago and found one she really liked, but the price wasn’t right. I got the right price yesterday — 6K off the sticker, with a trade-in almost double what the other dealer was willing to give. And it was even in the right color. YAY!

@E.. I will keep an eye out! :)

@Doc.. Mike Rowe would be proud!

Spin, apparently superglue was developed as a medical thing. The nice lady at the hospital used it on me when the steri-strips wouldn’t stick and the wound was too messy to stitch. It worked a treat. :)

Unca, it’s okay, I don’t use my scalpels for gardening anymore, don’t worry.

I have a toolbox full of medical instruments, such as hemostats (or hemostatic clamps). They’re great for all kinds of operations, such as pinching off fuel lines. And in our first aid kit, I have a ballpen hammer, a pipe wrench, and a propane torch. ;)

No wonder your son would have trouble getting world peace… there is a destructor in the house!

people are stupid

 

Spin… I sure hope you dont get into any medical distress… but if you do, get to the hospital… CG and DD would be nearby…

However, a medidonut a day keeps medical distress away!!
