Stranger in a Strange Land: October 2007

Thursday, October 25, 2007


Samsonite has always been synonymous with quality luggage, but like many, I best remember it as the last name of the person who owned the suitcase in the classic movie Dumb and Dumber. Spending hours flipping through the phonebook looking for Samsonite. What a great movie. All time best line in a movie: “That John Denver’s full of shit man.”

I Hate Winter

For all of us living in the colder regions of this planet, things are starting to change and it’s starting to get cold outside. Next thing you know it will be the first snow and we’ll all be like, “oh, it’s so pretty.” Then it will keep snowing and we’ll all be like, “oh, I hate winter.” That’s why you need to take preemptive action and book your Orlando rental home now- instead of hating winter, leave it.

Why do they still have those stupid little red stickers on certain random crap that people buy that says as seen on tv. Really, what isn’t seen on television anymore? There’s not one thing that I could buy that at some point in my life I have not seen on television. In fact, come to think of it, I take that back. The things I don’t typically see on TV are the things that claim to have been seen on TV. The reason, when those damn infomercials appear I close my eyes and change the channel.

Giants and Jets Oh My

I am a Bears fan and so I would rather buy Bear tickets then Giants tickets. But I guess if I lived in New York, or is that New Jersey, then I would have to buy tickets to see the Giants play. But I guess I could skip the Giants and instead see the Jets play, who also play in New Jersey by the way, in the same freaking stadium too. That’s like a city who has three high schools and one football field.

Getting Bought Out

I am not a big fan of getting married. That is why I did it early and got it over and out of the way when I was younger and had more enthusiasm for crap like that. Really, I have nothing against the concept of getting married. What I do have a problem with is the consumerism and commercialism that goes along with it. Everything from engagement announcements to the color of ribbon to tie around a cluster of balloons at the right hand side of the far back corner of the reception hall. Too many decisions for me. for all your copywriting needs.

Nick's Cinema

If I ever actually decide to grow up, settle down and buy a house of my own, I will make damn sure that it contains a home theater. And when it comes to my home theater chairs, you bet that they will be overstuffed, Lazy-Boy recliners with, no, not a beer can holder but multiple-beer can holders. Hey, movies tend to be long and cans of beer are usually short…

Around the World by Crossing the Street

I have only been to Las Vegas once, and it was before I could gamble and via a family member filled mini van set on getting a flat tire in the middle of the Nevada desert. Needless to say, I have never had a real Las Vegas holiday. But, when I do, I think I will go to Caesars Palace. Then after that, I’ll go to Paris before making my way back to New York. Who really needs a passport when you have Vegas?
