I ain't have no phone in my apart-a-men

  • I'll admit that I don't really like my profile picture at the moment, but it features my favorite hat. It's got an embroidered picture of the USS Coronado on it. It's an actual baseball cap that actual sailors who actually serve aboard the actual Coronado are required to wear, so I get to walk around pretending that I wasn't rejected for military service*.
    I got the hat when one of my best friends, Paul, served aboard the Coronado a few years ago. Eric got a rockin' picture of him holding a .50 caliber machine gun, I got a hat.
    Since the child bride refuses to comment on my blog, I'll leave it up to Crystal as to whether I should scrap that profile picture.

  • The title of this post has nothing to do with its contents. I just have a handful of phrases that I thought would make good post titles, but have yet to find a post where they fit.

  • Is Eddie Vedder's jaw wired shut? I was listening to a radio interview of him today and he didn't sound capable of opening his mouth.

    *I have yet to meet a person who doesn't think this was fortuitous.

    At least your profile picture looks like you. I keep being told that mine looks like satan.

    I don't have a picture, that's just vain. No, that's not it. I think it's because I'm lazy.

    Apart-a-men... sounds familiar.

    I like the picture. Although perhaps just a picture of the hat would be more mysterious?

    Whoo-hoo, Kanye!

    I like the picture. You look sprightly and slightly camp. What's not to like?

    Curly said...

    Ah yes, but did Eric get to keep the .50 cal machine gun?

    Crystal said...

    Gosh, Chris, you really have terrible taste in men. I think that is the cutest blog picture yet!

    but you're gonna change it in a couple days anyway, right?

    Apparently Eddie Vedder's mouth is wired open, not shut. He likes putting pies and wine in there, and has lately been compared to a young, fat Van Morrison. As opposed to old, fat Van Morrison, I suppose.

    If his jaw ain't wired shut, it's a hell of a good idea.
