A Post With No Real Substance

Honestly, folks, I'm working on a piece at the moment. Have been for a day or two. Every time I think I have it where I want it, I end up painting myself into a corner, so to speak and end up shredding sections and starting over. But, I don't want Bonez to end up with too long of a gap without an update.

So, to prove that we're still here, I'm gonna spit a few things down here just so our ravenous masses of fans can have some meat to gnaw off the Bonez until something more substantive arrives. (HOPEFULLY tomorrow.)

Without further ado, here are some incredibly random facts:

Until the age of 19, I thought pesto was an adjective. When something was described as being cooked with pesto, I assumed that they meant it was cooked with great enthusiasm.

It takes 37 muscles to frown but only about 8 for me to rip the throats out of the damn dogs that won't stop barking next door...

I don't "get" dancing. I appreciate that it takes a lot of skill, practice and athleticism to do it well, but it all seems like wasted energy to me. (And pompous, to boot.)

As mentioned in a post over at my personal blog, I personally discovered that if I use a uniform licking pattern, it takes me 3,602 licks to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop. (Take THAT, Mr. Owl)

My lifelong ambition as a young child was to cook french fries at McDonald's. I got a job at McDonald's at the age of 17. I was employed there for exactly 24 hours.



Okay, so after that, if you're still around all I can say is "thanks for sticking in there". As I said, myself and others are working on some fun new material for Bonez. But hey, creativity takes time and unfortunately I have a life that keeps me from being able to write all day. (Though admittedly, that would be heaven.)

And remember, part of what we do around here is listen to our readers. If you have an idea that you'd like us to look into, drop us a line. Our various email addresses are listed off to the right.

Wow! I didn't know that you fulfilled your dream of being a fry guy at McDonald's. It must not have lived up to your wild expectations. I do remember that you wanted to change your name to Ball Up. I never understood that one. :)

The entire name was to be Ball Up Up. I can't recall the specific motivation, but I'm sure that it was my six year old means of rebelling against the status quo. It may have been a message of political discord because of the Iranian hostage situation that was taking place in the early 80's.

And yeah, I started at McDonald's on July 21, 1992. I remember it well because that was the day of the Guns N Roses/Metallica show. My second day was supposed to be July 22nd, beginning at 4:30am. Oddly, I didn't much feel like going to work the next day. Strange.

LOL, you worked at McDonald's for a day? I didn't know that. I love the antecdotes posts, they make me smile and I enjoying reading your posts, you're in my favorites! KT

E said...

Thank you for the kind words. I try to amuse. And yeah, McDonald's, one single day. I made breakfast. It sucked. :)

I had a summer job working on a waste management truck emptying dumpsters and grease traps at Burger King franchises.

Did you save some retirement grease?

Bones just repost the blog again from the beginning post by post. This way we can all enjoy it again from the beginning all over again instead of digging into the archives like most of us do.

:D Thank you much. You are too kind. More inanity to come in the next day or two.
