Fifteen Daily Nibbles February 26 2009

Here is today's serving of hors d'oeuvres for the mind:
  • Speak plainly; that way it's not your fault if you're misunderstood.
  • Today's Giant of Literature is John Donne.
  • TV play-by-play man Joel Meyers is easily the most annoying person associated with the Los Angeles Lakers; if you cannot see what's happening on TV and have to rely on Meyers to know what's happening in the game, you're doomed to be extremely frustrated (because the fool is a total failure at describing what's going on in the game).
  • I sorely miss Chick Hearn, who must be turning in his grave because that idiotic fool Meyers is now the so-called "TV Voice of the Los Angeles Lakers."
  • Sketches and outtakes and demo recordings are often far more instructive and interesting than the finished works.
  • Respect may be something that people earn, but in truth everybody is entitled to have it by default.
  • When people argue over Coke or Pepsi, I just say "Barq's, please."
  • My own levels of patience are like the tides, in that they are always in an endless cycle of rising and falling.
  • I've presently got a craving for some Shakey's Pizza (thin crust, with pepperoni on top), Mojo Potatoes and their divine fried chicken.
  • Today's "Song You May Have Never Heard Before" is U2's "Running to Stand Still."
  • There are few things more satisfying than a perfectly executed, rev-matched heel-and-toe downshift.
  • A dear old friend sent me this: In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a Congress. -- John Adams
  • Today's Influential Person is Mohandas Gandhi.
  • The word of the day is: Clairvoyant.
  • This blog entry feels like one giant fortune cookie.

Be good, kids!
