Today I am cranky and seemingly incapable of staying interested in anything for more than three seconds. For some reason, I feel the need to share that with you.
Anyway, three random things in no particular order.
Even though I just wrote about it, I’m really tired of hearing about food. There are entirely too many food shows, celebrity cookbooks and controversies. While I can get into a few of them, not every person on the planet needs to be videotaped while cooking and given a cheesy theme song.
For the record: Just because you’re famous for something else doesn’t mean you have culinary expertise.
Sometimes I press my luck and buy a $1 scratch off lottery ticket. How do I decide which one? First, I pick the one that has a cool theme. If none of them do, I pick the one that has the largest possible prize, as if I would be disappointed to win $4,000 instead of $5,000 on a ticket.
For the record: I usually win nothing.
While I understand the religious tradition behind Easter–one of the most sacred days of the year for a lot of people–I don’t understand the rationale behind photo sessions in the mall with a mammoth creepy Easter Bunny that passes out eggs. At least make it a chicken so it’s more believable. Maybe I’ll write more about this later, maybe not. Remember that I’m cranky.
For the record: I think Jim Gaffigan summed it up best in one of his acts:
Female voice: Easter, the day Jesus rose from the dead. What should we do?
Male voice: How ’bout eggs?!
Female voice: Well, w-what does that have to do with Jesus?
Male voice: Alright, we’ll hide ’em.
Female voice: I don’t…I don’t follow your logic.
Male voice: Don’t worry, there’s a bunny.
And chocolate Cadbury eggs. I can get on board with that.
What are your random things?
