Random Acts of Shifeness - Leap Year

  • Happy Leap Day Eve!! 
  • Besides having an extra day to shower me with your adoration and affection, do you have any big plans for your extra day in 2020?
  • As for me, I'm gonna let you guys do what you guys gotta do. Don't worry about me, I'm just gonna go home, make a little macaroni and cheese, seal the windows and turn on the gas.
  • And that's not true. It's a quote from a movie I watched way too many times in college and I'm afraid to watch it again because it probably doesn't hold up.
  • Any guesses on the movie?  It starred Rob Lowe, Demi Moore and John James Belushi. The film was originally released in 1986 and got re-made in 2014 but this version starred Kevin Hart. The answer is right here.
  • There are days when I fear for humanity and today is one of those days.
    People tore Garth Brooks a new one on social media after he performed a concert in Detroit.
    If Garth had decided to wear nothing but chaps and a sports bra then I would have been in total agreement with social media.
    But Garth wore something more appalling according to these folks.
    He wore a Barry Sanders jersey.
    For those that don't know, Barry Sanders is a Hall of Fame running back that played in the NFL for the Detroit Lions. He wore #20 and is regarded as one of the greatest players ever.
    It makes sense to wear the jersey of a beloved figure while performing in that town, right?
    Here's the jersey:

The future computational and theoretical physicists of America thought Garth was endorsing Bernie Sanders in 2020. If you do a Garth Brooks search on Google you will read of plenty of WTF?

Of all the things you can be on the Internet, I am always surprised at how many decide to be dumb. I guess I shouldn't be too surprised because Roger Clyne warned me many years ago: 
"Everyone knows that the world is full of stupid people."

Have a great weekend, enjoy your extra scoop of February and talk to you soon.

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream. 

Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat. - F. Scott Fitzgerald 


    1. That is funny about the jersey! All those poor little Trumpsters jumping to conclusion again.

    2. You lost me at Belushi. Those three were in a film together? Almost half of the Brat Pack and Bluto? Well, now I have to clink on that link...

    3. In 1986 I was caring for 1 year old
      twins - there were no movies for us.
      xoxo to you and yours, :-)

    4. That IS crazy, isn't it? Whoa.

      I think April or May should have that extra day that February's always gotten, by the way. It's too cold in February to prolong that misery :)

      Have a great week, Mr. S and family.

    5. OMG, I'd forgotten how many moves guys had to keep the hair out of their eyes, their face, their mouths.

    6. It always scares me that unintelligent people get to choose who is going to run a country.

    7. The months are flying by. I swear they are going faster this year than last. I am a May bird, therefore I insist on having an extra day in that month. Enjoy the rest of this month and don't do anything I wouldn't do.

    8. Well, you do have to remember that Trumpanzees are not really renowned by their intelligence.
      Garth can still WEAR those jeans. Damn.


    9. macaroni and cheese is one of my favorites too... yummy

    10. I celebrated Leap Day by setting up the new rug in the living room and then making a 'Big Lebowski' reference that the kids did not get. They're still a little young for The Dude.

    11. Well, to be completely honest... I don't mind a dude in a jersey.

      Especially if it's a jock! ^.^

    12. The leap day was a working day for me. There are so many little things to be completed before the start of the week. Obviously I was busy. Good to see someone planning a leap day eve. A day that shows up once every 4 years has to be special, right?
