Thanks for breaking up the band Yoko.

Gordon Steve Page is leaving the band Bare Naked Ladies. While his departure may be best the best thing for him and the band, his distinctive voice, flair and humor be missed. Read about it here and here. The song "Be My Yoko Ono" now is a sad irony :). Well at least I got to see them on concert once a long time ago. (even if they didn't play shoebox at that gig)

For some BNL goodness click here, click here and of course clicky here.

Buddy Award


HoosierGirl awarded me with the great buddy award. Apparently she sees me as the type of loyal, genuine person she could count on to dispose of a body should the need arise. Or maybe she just thinks a I have a hidden dark side ;).

Okay, here's how it works if you want to pass it on:

1. Put the logo on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3. Award up to ten other blogs.
4. Add links to those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message for your awardees on their blogs.

1. Check.
2. Hoosier Girl's Coffee Table
3. Big sister. She would help me hide a body, or I'd help her. I think the subject has even come up once or twice. If only in conversation.
Superwoman She'd aid and abet me I just know it. She's been nominated already but one good snuff deserves another.
Nobody I hear there is good grave digging soil out in East Undershirt, and if we happen do nothing a flood would probably take said corpse away in no time.
4. See Above or the sidebar.
5. Go check their blogs already!

Shoes are in danger.Remember how we have* to juggle our shoes every-time we get on a plane? (off then on, then off again cause the guard wasn't paying attention, then on, then off one more time cause they didn't get a good look for the first two times) That was the suck. I like shoes. Especially when it is cold, or when the sidewalk is hot. Bending over trying to take them off whilst juggling luggage and 2 computer bags wasn't fun either. And it was all down to one idiot terrorist and his shoe bomb.

Why then are the idiots of the world conspiring against us shoe wearing people again? Taking heart from the Idiot-Iraqi-Wingtip-Lobbing-Wanker a British protester pitched his oxford at the Chinese Premier. Pretty soon people are going to be chucking their shoes at singers and athletes. It is a disturbing trend.

If idiots keep this up I can see shoes being banned from all public gathering places. Imagine going to the ball park and having to take off your shoes! Although the sticky soda and beer soaked bleachers would be unpleasant in bare feet or socks, I shudder at the mere idea of attempting to use a public male restroom w/o that quarter inch of rubber protecting my feet from those of poor aim, and I don't want to hold it through triple overtime.

So do us all a favor. Keep your shoes on people! If, by chance, you see someone about to toss their moldy shoe at someone. Take a split second to think of the horror of using a public restroom without the benefit of shoes, or of sitting enjoying a concert in socks as the slob behind you spills his coke and it forms a river between your toes, when that time comes you'll know what to do. Block their arm, punch them in their nose, taser them if you have to. Do NOT allow idiots to throw their shoes, even if you detest the intended target. The hallowed practice of donning footwear supersedes any political agenda or social statement. Help me protect it.

This has been a sushiboy-public-service-announcement.
*(edit: tense change. Nobody asked the question if we still have to take them off in the airport. There is new technology that can scan shoes without removing them. But we still have to take off shoes, for now...)
