This and That


Calcium

Now, they say calcium supplements will give you a heart attack.  I give up.  I'm going to start eating bacon and eggs at every meal.  Screw it.

American Idol

Jennifer Lopez?  Steven Tyler?  P. Diddy?  W…T…holy…F? 

Phrase I'm Going to Start Using

"Slow your roll" = calm you down.  "You need to drink another beer and slow your roll, before you have a heart attack.  Oh, and stop taking calcium."

Difference Between Us and Them

I heard a British announcer the other day say that the fans of some team or another were upset with their team because of the team's tendency to "surrender the lead" in matches.  Surrender the lead.  That sounds so much more refined than the typical Texan version of the same sentiment: "choke."  As in: "F*cking Astros choked again!"

I was going to say something really witty here but I have a tendency to surrender the lead...

I was annoyed about the calcium thing too, especially since the so-called tablets are about an inch long, and I've finally learned to swallow them. I might just spite those damn scientists and keep taking it.
