All the Little Monsters Are Out Tonight

by on Oct.30, 2016, under Fun Stuff, Life

I love it that Lady Gaga calls her fans her “little monsters.” I’m not sure where she got that idea or how it all started but it is such a nice idiosyncrasy. I don’t think it has anything to do with Halloween, but it might. I can’t find anything about it on Google, so if you know the story behind it, hit me up and help me out.

With Halloween being tonight, I am preparing to have all the little monsters in my neighborhood coming to the door expecting candy. I love seeing the kids, especially the very little ones who are just discovering the whole idea of getting free candy! Although the calendar says that Halloween is tomorrow night, the 31st, our county decided that it was better for the safety of our children to have trick or treating on Sunday night instead. Officially, kids can only be out from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm tonight. And all good kids should be back home and getting ready for bed after 8:00 because they have to go to school tomorrow. I wonder if they will have any Halloween parties at school? We used to have a costume parade and party when I was in school. It was fun!

I wonder if everyone got that notice about the official night being tonight? Or will I have trick or treaters both tonight AND tomorrow? I will set back some candy bars for tomorrow nights, just in case. And if no one shows up, I’ll put them in the candy jar and enjoy the candy myself over the next couple of weeks!

Shooting Some 8 Ball

by on Nov.01, 2013, under Friends, Fun Stuff

My boyfriend likes to shoot pool, so I usually tag along with him if I don’t have anything else going on. We were shooting some 8 ball last night at the Antioch pool hall and had a lot of fun. The other guys in there were happy and laughing and fooling around – none of the serious, money involved kind of competitions. That was a nice change. Sometimes when we go we have to be real quiet and be sure to not disturb the other players. But for some reason everyone was in a good mood and just out having fun.

There are not as many pool halls around here as I am used to. When I was growing up in the DC suburbs, there were pool halls all over the place. Some of them were for casual play and some were for serious competitions. I usually just went to the casual places with my brothers on with my date. I’m a pretty good shot and can hold my own in a regular game. I don’t do any trick shots or anything fancy. I just take my time, aim and hope for the best. I’m not intimidated about breaking them, either. I can hit the lead ball nice and clean and leave myself some easy pocket shots most of the time.

Changes in the Talk Shows

by on Oct.24, 2013, under Fun Stuff, TV

As this year comes to an end, I’m looking forward to some of the changes that will be happening for the late night TV talk shows. It looks like Jay Leno will really be retiring this time – the last time turned into a fiasco and I’m still pretty angry that he shit on Conan O’Brien like that. I don’t even like Conan, but it’s not cool to give your time slot to someone else and then come slithering back a few months later like a snake and take it away from the guy. Not cool at all.

Since that happened I have not watched a single ay Leno show. Fuck him.

The good news is that Jimmy Fallon will be taking over the Tonight Show when Leno finally leaves – for good this time. i really like Jimmy Fallon and his knack for comedy. I always have – from back in his Saturday Night Live days to the Jimmy Fallon Show that comes on late at night. He is a great host – he has a wonderful rapport with all his guests and he incorporates a lot of funny bits into the show. I can’t wait for him to get recognized for his talent and get the Tonight Show going.

And to Jay – don’t let the door hit you on the ass when you leave this time. Pffft.

Frosty Pumpkins This Week

by on Oct.05, 2012, under Fun Stuff, Good Eats, Life

No one in my neighborhood has put out a pumpkin on their porch yet, but I’m ready for one! The weather has cooled off a lot and I think a pumpkin this week would have no problem lasting until Halloween. The cool air is like a refrigerator and will keep it from spoiling.

I found a few pumpkins at Kroger yesterday, but they want $9 a piece and there were not very many to choose from. I don’t know why, but I have this deep feeling that a pumpkin should only cost about $4 or $5 – not $9 . So I guess I will look for a roadside stand or a charity pumpkin patch if I’m going to be spending $10 for this year’s pumpkin. I think the Boy Scouts or a church youth group could use that money a little better than the Kroger company.

Local Comedy Clubs

by on Sep.29, 2012, under Fun Stuff, Life, Movies, TV

One of the attractions of living in a city is that most cities have some sort of comedy club for local entertainment. Of course, the major metropolitan areas may have several comedy clubs, and on occasion the more proper theaters may book a top shelf comedian for a two or three night special performance when they are between the longer running plays and concert series.

The comedy club in Nashville is called Zanies and they do a pretty good job of pulling in nationally known comedians. I have seen several top acts from TV shows and movies there over the years, but haven’t been going lately.Since I a single, I am careful about where I go at night and am very cautious about where can I park safely and have a good chance of getting to my car and heading home without any incidents. The Zanies is in a shady part of town and their parking lot is way too small for the number of cars. If you are not there at least an hour before the show you have little chance of parking in their lot, and if there are two shows and you are trying to attend the second show, finding parking in the lot is practically impossible.

The shows are good, the drinks are good, the food is so-so and the parking is crap. I would love to see the relocate and be in a nicer and safer neighborhood. And a place with plenty of off street free parking would bring me to the club many times in a year.
