Late Night Sales

Late at night, you see some of the funkiest commercials and items for sale. Some of these commercials make it to day time too (like that shammy cloth one--you know the product, I'm not going to give it any press here).

But a couple nights ago, there was an info-commercial for sex toys!! For sex toys!! And of course I was interested and watched. All kinds of different stuff. Stuff made of glass, microwaveable sculptures and even freezer friendly stuff. Every color, shape and material too.

I thought it very professional that the sales girls kept straight faces while selling these items.

I also have seen the increase one's size and longevity commercials. And the companies have patrons that aren't afraid to admit they needed the size increasing magic bean. Very open minded and brave that they are able to admit on television that their tally-whacker isn't up to par. They can even do it with a smile on their face. I don't think I would be smiling if I had to talk about my danglies in an open forum with cameras and crew members surrounding me. But you go guys!!

Just some weird stuff that happens in the wee hours of the morning.

Scary Movies

A friend of mine is trying to get me to watch one of the Halloween thrillers with our other friends. I'm such a chicken, that I refuse. I am that person who was freaked out by the witch in the Wizard of Oz (as a child, I could never watch the whole munchkin scene because she popped out of nowhere). Even those B-rated thrillers with horrible make-up and costumes scare me (you know like Friday the 13th Part 900)!!!

I continually tell them that I will scream like a woman and will jump 10 feet out of my chair. I think they actually want to catch me on video and put it on youtube. Not sure why they insist on dragging me to these things. I do not enjoy them. I can't sleep for days (after the last movie they dragged me to, I slept with the lights on and then a night light for about a week).

I'm going to pretend to be sick, just until they watch these flicks.

The Future

One of my favorite new shows is Flash Forward.

The premise of this show is that everyone passes out at the same time and has a glimpse of their future.

I am wondering, since they do have this privilege, can they do something to change it? They are fully aware of what they see, so in the course of time, should they do something to change that path?

If my future "flash" weren't favorable, I may do something to alter it, to make it more favorable.

At the same time however, I don't think I would do anything to alter my past. Yeah, maybe there are things that I could change. But should I? After all, everything that has happened in my past has made me the person that I am today. There were lessons learned and people that I met because of the course I took.

I may try and change the future, but I'm pretty happy with my past.

Walking through the mall yesterday, I noticed the costume sales. This brought back memories of shopping for my Halloween costume as a child. I know that I dressed up every year (up until about the age of 12 or thirteen), but I really can't remember wearing any of the costumes. I do have vague recollections about how it felt to shop for costumes and sifting through the aisles to find something unique, but not wearing anything in particular.

There is only one costume that I remember wearing for trick or treat. The costume was a Slestak from Land of the Lost. My older cousin was a huge fan of the show. I remember going to the mall and and him suggesting to me to buy it. I vaguely remember watching the show on Saturday mornings with him. Since he had such an influence on me, I wore the costume. My younger brother also bought it. This one costume sticks out in my mind for some reason.

Now, whenever I go to a costume party or have to dress up, I go simple. Nothing that covers my face (my looks are horrifying enough). I usually just buy a cape and false teeth and do the vampire thing.

Anything Fried Taste Better

I'm convinced that if you fry any type of food it taste better.

On the Travel Channel I was watching a show called Deep Fried Paradise...and it made my stomach do the good kind of somersaults, you know the kind that make you want to stuff your face.

They were showing different types of fried foods. They showed a restaurant that started out making fish and chips, but eventually was deep frying pizza!! How much yummier can you get than that? This restaurant is in New York, so when I go to visit my friend Mulan (this isn't her God given name, but I'm going to call her Mulan forever) this will be the first stop I make. And I'm getting a couple slices of the deep fried pizza.

I know that it's all bad for you. I know that I shouldn't be eating this kind of food. I know that it hinders my exercise routine. One day, I had some Chinese take-out and I was sluggish on my run. It took me almost 18 minutes to run a mile. 18 minutes!! But the thought of eating like this makes my mouth water. And so, just that once, when I go to visit Mulan, I'm going to eat a couple slices of deep fried pizza and top it all off with a deep fried twinkie.
