Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, have you seen that amazing new book about former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy, the one taken from hours of taped interviews with her just months after her husband was assassinated?
Excuse me? Are we talking about the same book?
Sure. I’m not even finished with it, and already I’m struck by her vivid chowder memories of Jack Kennedy:
“He’d come home, and then it would be fish chowder….”
“I remember we had fish chowder. You could still sit outside.”
“I mean, you had what he loves – his fish chowder – and he was still picking Cornelius Ryan’s brains about ‘The Longest Day.’”
Honey, I have a surprise!
An entire museum of fries!
Let’s order a malted,
And everything salted,
Then leave, before anyone dies!
Blog Guy, I read your item about the Ramen Museum in Japan, which sounds kind of boring. Are there any really great food-themed museums?
Blog Guy, can you please settle a bet with my handyman’s numismatist?
Oh please! More random bets between unlikely random professions? What does this coin collector say?
Well, I saw that CNN journalist Anderson Cooper speaking in Orlando on Tuesday evening, but my handyman’s numismatist claims he saw Cooper on the same evening, speaking in Boise. Which one of us is right?
Blog Guy, if my calendar is correct, you’ve got a major event coming up?
Yes, the celebrated Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop, here in Washington DC, is ready to launch our big new season the day after Labor Day.
What’s up, Blog Guy? You look annoyed.
Yeah, I hate being suckered. I see the programming chief for AMC now says the murder that was the central crime in his network’s Emmy-nominated series, “The Killing,” will be wrapped up in the SECOND season.
It’s summer, Blog Guy, and that means lots of funny local competitions. I hope you’re monitoring those for your readers.
Blog Guy, I read that a handwritten draft of a Jane Austen book that was never published just sold for $1.6 million at auction. The story said it was an unfinished work. She’s my very favorite author!
Okay Lamar, your memo said you’ve come up with a totally new fashion concept in women’s apparel. I’m very excited, so show me what you’ve got.
It’s lingerie that you can read, Boss. So if you get bored with your partner, you can at least read what she’s wearing for entertainment.
Blog Guy, I’m surprised you didn’t get involved in the Sarah Palin thing a couple of days ago, when she told her goofy version of Paul Revere’s ride.
