Complete and Utter Randomness

Nothing meaningful on my mind today, so why not delve through the debris that currently clutters my melon?

I saw a preview for a new movie called the other day.

The movie's tagline is "In a world gone blind, what if you were the only person who could see?"

Answer: Score for me, but still a little creepy.

While I could do whatever I wanted - both legally and illegally - it would be more than a little strange to be the only person who could see the sunset or what other people looked like.

Clearly, the film is set up to be a psychological thriller and they aren't expecting people to think being the sole sight-seeing survivor on Earth is an awesome stroke of luck, but you have to admit that the pros outweigh the cons.

Sure no one else can see, but you can, so what's the big deal?

I saw some douchebag driving down the street today in an Orange Lexus.

Why would someone do that to a Lexus? I say "do that" because it's quite obvious that Lexus wouldn't have created a luxury orange on wheels themselves and this guy clearly painted the car himself - perhaps even with spray paint - in order to display his utter disdain for quality vehicles.

Making it even better were the orange dual exhausts and gold decals.

Seriously - what's with some people?

Speaking of retarded, there is a lady in our neighbourhood who walks her cat on a leash.

Again I ask you - what is with some people?

Cats aren't leash-walking animals.

If they are allowed out, they go out on their own to roam free and return home whenever they please. And if they aren't to go outside, then keep them inside. Don't degrade your poor pet by making it look stupid in some harness as you try to drag it down the street, angry that it isn't obeying your every command.

You take dogs for a walk. Leashes are made for dogs. Not cats. Or ferrets, rats or children.

In having watched one and a half seasons of The Wire in the last week, I really don't understand how more people didn't pay attention to this show. It really is awesome.

Unlike Network Television dramas that recycle plots over and over after about a year of being on the air - Tonight on Grey's Anatomy: an Emergency at Seattle Grace and Relationship Drama between two or more characters! - every year of The Wire focuses on a different area of Baltimore, complete with new characters and plot lines.

Sure they carry over characters from season to season and keep things running that way, but each episode is 100% fresh without feeling forced. So while Season Two still has subplots involving Season One's antagonist Avon Barksdale and his drug crew, as well as my personal favourites Omar and Bubs the Heroin-fiend Informant, there is also the new main plot surrounding The Docks to build a whole new set of circumstances around.

All I know is that I can't wait to finish Season Two so I can justify dropping another $60 on Seasons Three and Four.

Luke hates our Cleaning Lady.

By "our" I mean Garry's and by "hates" I mean completely and utterly detests. It's to the point that we leave the house with him before she shows up and try to to stay away for the duration of her time in the house.

This wouldn't be such a task if it didn't take her four hours to get everything done.

There are only so many laps of the path at the dog park one can do before both dog and owner get bored.

Don't ask me why, but I just love the picture for this post. I can't explain it, it's just cool to me.

Let's call it a day for now... check back later in case I stop having mental diarrhea and write something meaningful!
