Discourse on cheeseheads

  • I went to high school with the guy quoted in the second paragraph of this story. Add this to the fact that I once dated Miss Wisconsin, and I'm only a few degrees of separation from having my finger on the pulse of the Dairy State. Why this would be a good thing, I cannot say.

  • My co-workers and I spent about an hour Tuesday making fun of this guy. Most asinine quote: "I go to Cracker Barrel once a week and play checkers with Kassy. We play the meanest game of checkers you have ever seen. She beats me every time and I get mad. I always get the pot roast and big batch of macaroni and cheese."

  • I'm not sure about this, but I would doubt that one of the best ways to get people to stop calling you a nutcase is to take out a full-page ad in a newspaper, complete with 2,000 word essay and suspicious use of the word "ye."

  • Sometimes a news story raises more questions than it answers: "One of the occupants told emergency officials that his toilet had exploded and was on fire."

  • Imagine walking by a police car when, all of a sudden, it starts honking and going nuts, and a hot, angry German Sheppard jumps out the back

  • And the Lord said, "I shall return to you in fiberglass form."

  • And the Lord did also say, "Stick and move."

  • I'm thinking of going back to university.

  • A vodka primer. Sadly, Minnesota-brewed vodka, Shakers, gets no mention.

  • In a story on Radio 1's news Tuesday about Wayne Rooney, a Manchester United supporter described Rooney as "our secret weapon."
    If every Man U-related story I see or hear is about Wayne Rooney, he's hardly secret, is he?

    Exploding toilets... yet another reason for me to be proud to live in good ol' Cincinnati. If I'm ever feeling down about myself, it's nice to know that I can just walk out the door and LOOK AROUND. It's like visual Prozac.

    Cincinnati -- city of magic.

    Chopin and Lukoskawa are the two vodkas I drink. Err. They will be in less than two months when I turn 21. Both 80pf potato vodka.

    Potato vodka is real vodka. The way it should be. Stoli is alright, but its grain and way too harsh for me. Grey Goose is smooth, but much more expensive and not as good as Chopin and Lukoskawa.

    I like to have my bottle and just toke on it through the night.

    Just for the record, I'm half Polish.

    And the only other alcohol I drink is whiskey. Because my mom's side of the family is mostly Scottish.

    I'm going to Poland next month. No doubt potato based drinks will feature in my experience of the place.

    I just hope that the budget airline Wiz aren't running their engines on the stuff.

    I like the fact that Greg drinks vodka and whiskey based on his parents' heritage. I can think of no better interpretation of that "Honor thy mother and father" commandment.
