Assorted Flotsam

  • Hey! I think I may have discovered what ever happened to Jimmie "J.J." Walker.

Apparently, whatever he's doing involves driving a minivan in Virginia. Dy-no-sad!
  • Saw this at an airport during some recent travels:

Yeah, shorts, flip-flops, and a classic blue blazer. I'm thinking: semi-formal clam bake?
  • In other news, I've been on Sensa for the last 5 weeks and lost 7.5 pounds.

I am LOVING it. No work at all, all natural, and I'm losing weight. It's nothing short of revolutionary. It really does curb my appetite. Freaky! And best of all for the people around me, I am not a huge crank-monster like I usually am when trying to lose weight. Huzzah!
  • Finally, I am seeing this ad for McDonald's which takes place in someone's home. It is a person calling a family together for dinner and then providing McNuggets. And you see them gathering excitedly and opening the tiny boxes and dipping sauces. Now, I have eaten a lot of McDonald's in my time but I can't remember ever taking it home. Either I ate it in the McDonald's or I ate it in the car. Let's face it, that stuff congeals pretty quickly. For me, fast food only works while it's hot. Once things start to cool... ugh.
    Am I wrong? Am I missing an important bonding experience with my family?

I thought the same thing Froggy did.

And taking fast food home depends on the time it takes to get there. Needs to be 5 minutes or less.

"Semi-formal clam bake" - hilarious!

Ew, fast food is only good while it's hot.

7.5 pounds - that's fantastic!

Congratulations on the weight loss!

I'm thinking he wanted to be comfortable and not have to pack the blazer.

Good job on the weight.

In university, McDonald's delivered, but there was a minimum. (I almost said a "cover.") My roommate would order a dozen cheeseburgers and store them in the freezer. He'd pop a couple into the microwave at a time. He lived on those things.

He was always skinny as a rail and I resented that.

Pauline said...

That's great about your weight loss, I have never heard of Sensa. How does it work?

Malnurtured Snay said...

I hope you weren't eating McDonalds as you were driving!

I saw a guy on the bus yesterday wearing a long sleeve dress shirt, a tie, shorts, and sandals. It's like the top half of his body decided to go formal and the lower half went casual. WTF?

FoggyDew said...

Except for the sandals, I can buy into that outfit. During the summer, men used to dress like this all the time and it was considered acceptable. Has no one ever heard the term "Bermuda shorts"? Also, as a former reporter, I can say the only time I ever wore shorts was after a hurricane.

And McDs can be eaten at home, it you get it there quick enough.

Barbara said...

The idea of eating anything from McD's at home just doesn't compute. That's desperation food as I see it.

Congrats on the weight loss. You looked great the last time I saw you. Why are you losing weight?!

lacochran's evil twin said...

froggy, Mike: Okay, I give. Why would a reporter be dressed that way?

H.K.: Agreed and thanks!

Lemon Gloria: Thanks. Now that I could believe.

AbbotofUnreason: Thanks. Really? Frozen and nuked? Sounds lousy.

Pauline: Sense of smell makes you think you're full earlier than you normally would. Freaky.

Malnurtured Snay: WTF indeed.

Foggy Dew: Thanks for weighing in.

Barbara: Thanks. I was 15 pounds up in under a year. Now, I've halved that and I like myself a whole lot more.

Cyndy said...

They dress that way in Bermuda. It's kind of odd looking but enough people do it that it seems normal over there. It's still weird here though.

The airport getup makes an odd kind of sense. I always wear shoes that slip off easily and the most bulky/wrinkle prone clothing to make carry on travel possible.

Now that you've tracked down Dynomite, what ever happened to JJ?
