Random Salad

It’s 8:00 am and I think I’m still drunk from the night before most probably because of the bottle of Ravenswood Zinfandel and three beers that I consumed in less than five hours.

I’ve always wondered why booze makes you forget things, until this morning that is, when bits and pieces of last night came back to me, more specifically, singing (I mean screaming) “Pour Some Sugar On Me” with my friend Gregg into the karaoke microphone on a make-shift stage at Joe Sensors sports bar. It’s times like those that are best left in the drunken haze they were experienced. Christ.

Speaking of bad, yesterday while driving I saw a large Dodge truck with a license plate that read "GITERDNE." Which made me think, would I ever be brave enough to create personalized plates out of a cheesy catch phrase? I mean, those things don't last and then I'd be stuck for years with some outdated phrase on the back of my car for people like me to criticize and make fun of. Kind of like my “Where’s the Beef” t-shirt I made my mom buy me when I was young. Who buys their 7 year-old daughter a t-shirt that reads “Where’s the Beef?”
However, maybe it's still cool, "Giterdun" I mean. But then again, I wouldn't know since I don't own a flannel shirt, shotgun or framed tickets to a Monster Truck Show.

Daewoo makes a car called the “Leganza” which I believe sounds like it should be a VD. “Bruce went down to Jamaica and came back with a bad case of Leganza.” Ahhh, now you get it don’t you. It does though, right?

Tostitos has once again successfully ripped off Doritos and created their version of “Cool Ranch” and cleverly named it “Southwestern Ranch,” and I have to say, they’re pretty good...crispy, and not too much ranch unlike Doritos who tends to soak their chips in too much ranch and too much ranch is a bad idea. I know this because I’m eating them for breakfast. Yep... definitely still drunk.

Oh..duh..I suppose I could've just looked at your links...

I remember "Where's the Beef?"

You know, there's a website, X Entertainment, that has a bunch of old commercials from the 80s.

Great fun if you have the time.

Whew, it's good to know I'm not the only one who likes to drink alcohol

I love Ravenswood Zinfandel, I could drink a whole bottle of that myself ;)

TGIF!

Steph said...

Yeah, but you're kicking ass!! Seriously check you out - great month!!
(How sad that since it's the last day of the month and I'm swamped, I can't justify taking the time to e-mail you, but I can justify reading and commenting on your blog!)

Haha-- that VD connection makes totally sense, because it sounds like Leganza would make your Daewoo itchy.

And yum to drunk breakfast Tostitos. I'll have to try their new flavor...

I have personalized license plates: non-gf.

I'll always be a non-girlfriend so I guess they'll never expire.

My favorite personalized plate I've seen is RCH BCH. The car it was bolted onto was a late 90's blood red Mitsubishi Eclipse. Yeah, sure, you're a rich bitch drivin' a Mitsubishi. Whatever.

jenni- drop me an email, i need your add!

As always... Rachael said...

Give me a good ol' fashioned case of crabs over Leganza any day!

Leganza also sounds like a vegan lasagna dish.

My 2nd favorite license plate read BAHSTN, seen whilst driving in Newton MA.

My favorite license plate can be seen on The Smoking Gun. I love that one.

Also, Ravenswood Zinfandel is outstanding. I approve. Sadly the only wine my mom and sisters drink is White Zinfandel. sigh.

Leganza seems like something John Leguizamo would try to trademark. I don't know why. Or maybe he would jsut be the spokesperson for it.

And my favorite license plate was "3M 3TIB" - it was a Nevada plate, a state where front & rear plates are required. It makes no sense until you're driving in front of the car and realize that it reads "BITE ME" (with just the "B" turned backwards).

I actually had a pretty firey case of Leganza. The doctor told me to take a Z-pack and it would clear up. Now, about those crabs...

I came over from Rachael's. Very funny blog. Nice place you have here. I'll be back. I'm totally with you on the dopey plates. They'e even dumber than bumper stickers but no as dumb as slogan tattoos. I'm convinced that the Chinese ones all say some version of "asshole."
