Another Pleasant Valley Sunday

I'm all over the place this morning. I decided to do a Larry King type post. If anyone hasn't read anything from Larry King, it's basically stream of consciousness writing. Whatever pops into his head, he writes. And he gets paid. I can only assume he gets paid pretty well for this because Larry King is rich. I only know Larry King is rich because he's had a couple dozen really beautiful wives and, well, no one's personality is that good.


Yeah, I know, I shouldn't judge him based on his looks, but oy vay.

And he has married some incredibly beautiful women. Ok, lightning striking once, sure, but seven times? And his last one was just after his 103rd birthday.

He has to be the luckiest guy on the face of the earth.

back to my stream posting:

Stop telling me kids today are smarter than ever. They are getting dumber, but thanks to self-esteem building exercises, they feel better about being dumbasses...Damn, I love strawberry Greek yogurt. If it wasn't a couple bucks for a tiny cup, I'd have it every day instead of the industrial strength store brand crap I usually buy...I watched the Solomon Brothers movie on Starz last night. Some movies would have been better off as 20 minute shorts...Stop telling your kids anyone (even him or her) can grow up to be President. Unless you are filthy rich, it ain't gonna be one of your spawn...I have to make up my mind about Richard Simmons. Does he annoy me so much that I'll never mention his name again, or does he fascinate me so much that I can't stop mentioning him? Though he is the most famous person I ever met...I could never lead a sing-a-long. The only songs I know are The Night Chicago Died, Rocky Racoon, and the Viva Viagra jingle.

Bet you thought this was going to be a picture having to do with Viagra

...Why can't someone make broccoli taste like chocolate donuts...Anyone else remember when a million dollars was a lot of money...I've seen a new service called Twitter. Lets your friends keep up with you. I'll save everyone the trouble in my case. 1. Get up, go to bathroom. 2. Sit on couch. 3. Go to sleep...
Another big timesaver. I get those list things in email every day. Questions lists.

I'll save you the trouble as they all have these same 5 questions, and my answers are always the same.
1. My favorite color is pinstripes.
2. My favorite number is 5.
3. Yes
4. New Jersey.
5. I'm not wearing pants
...I always hear about overpaid sports figures. No one is worth that much money. I just read that Madonna is getting divorced, and celebrity gossip persons are wondering how her $600,000,000 will be divvied up. Maybe the trampy star can sing, but she can't hit a slider worth a damn...I need to talk to a psych doctor to find out why I have so many unresolved Richard Simmons issues...Type to you tomorrow, in the meantime, have a swell day.

I resent that Crotchety I'am very smart :o

Da Old Man said...

@ g: You are an exception, dude.
I was in a classroom where the Social Studies teacher hung up kid's tributes to America posters. "yay for our 51 states," or something as silly. I guess it's too much for a middle school kid, in Social Studies class, to know we had 50 states, when he was making a poster about our 50 states.
Teacher should have smacked him 51 times with the stupid poster.

G. said...

I'm sure the teacher didn't want to hurt his precious self-esteem... Your right of course there are some kids that are in dire need of a brain cell injection. Don't worry not all of us are gonna devolve back into monkeys.

Joe here is a link to read more about writing links.

Shoot me an email if you want me to help you out.

I couldn't find your email that's why I commented here.

Dr. Rob said...

Funny, sad, true, pinstripes, yogurt: you said it all.

Didjanotice: I'am

Hello There Crotchety Old Man,
I just have to say, this is the funniest site that I have come across in a very long time.

I see that picture with the little one in front of a TV that I remember in my childhood, so I must be the Crotchety Old Woman, because I love TV too, and chasing cars!! Someday I hope to beat the dogs at it...

I agree, some of our young people are getting more stupid, either that, or they are so smart, they are unable to find their way out of a paper bag, not alike my own son.

By the way, love your 5 answers, and also your music on the side. Now, that is some music!

Yesterday I just linked your site on my site under "My Friends Links" Everyone should read your blog.

Kids? Ya they defly need more help now a days.

Da Old Man said...

@ Chatblanc : Yup

@ Claire: Writing is ok with me. I'm a writing tutor. Scary, huh?

@ Skye: Thanks

@ Dani: LOL

Drowsey Monkey said...

I love the way broccoli tastes and I'm allergic to that wouldn't be good for me.

As for Larry King ... I know, eh? LOL

Claire said...

I must of read it totally wrong on the thread in BC about you not being able to add a clickable backlink to previous posts?

Sorry about that :)

Claire said...

Oh my! I meant how to write 'HTML Link', not how to 'write' by the way.

I was not implying that you cant write, I can be a bitch sometimes but I am not that bad! :)

Da Old Man said...

@ Claire: I got it now. I'll check those out, then. Thank you so much.

@ Drowsey: You like broccoli? I always thought broccoli was the reason cheese was created, to kill the taste of that vegetable.

Claire said...

Phew, I am glad you get me now :)

I am going to write a post on BC and dedicate it to you :)

Claire said...

Okay here it is :)

This may help! click it :)

I am amazed that with all that money Madonna has never gotten singing lessons. She can't sing a lick and never could.

~*~Shadow.Crystal~*~ said...

Nice rant... even rambling, your posts make me grin.

Da Old Man said...

@ Patricia: I've never been a fan, and would have trouble naming 3 of her songs.

@ Shadow: Thank you. And it's a nice grin, if you don't mind my saying. :)

shyne said...

It's happened again....if I want to start a day with a laugh, all I have to do is come here.

Thanks for another good one!

Da Old Man said...

@ Shyne: Thanks. :)

I'm not 100% sure that Larry King is quite that rich. I've heard rumors that he's freakishly well endowed though.
