I'd Like To Thank The Academy....

I'm at home today and I'm writing this. Can you believe it? Neither can I. I got a hold of a free signal, fired up the old laptop, threw in a new keyboard and boom goes the dynamite. I also can't believe that I am at home right now, really. My feet hurt, I'm worn out from the week and did I mention that I was tired as Hell? No, I guess I didn't. My bad

At least I can sit down in the recliner and just chill. I don't want to go anywhere or do anything, you know? Just be as lazy as I want to be. These days, I doin't get to do too much of that with all that's going on but I am making up for all the wackness as we speak. next to me is a glass filed with Pepsi and Bacardi Limon. Something as good as this makes you wonder why you never see Pepsi in bars. Everywhere you go there's a Pepsi sigh, but never on a bar/pub/drinking establishment. If they were to serve the much sweeter soft drink instead of the sting of Coca Cola with rum, the world could be a much better place.

I need not mention of course that the Academy Awards is about to happen in less than 2 hours. I'm not that excited about this year's event as I haven't had the chance to see the nominated films and as good as they may be, I'd rather wait until they come out on DVD to see them. Sure, I know that the talk is all about Mickey Rourke for his role The Wrestler, Sean Penn playing the late Harvey Milk, and Slumdog Millionaire with  the story of a kid who wins on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire set in India and there's no Regis and there's a big Bolywood dance scene at the end, but I'm no rush to go to the theaters at the moment for me. By the way, I hope I didn't spoil the end of Slumdog Millionaire for you if you haven't seen it yet. With all the press on those three films, you can just guess what happens already, so consider the fact that you've saved 8 bucks. Make yourself some popcorn and read the article.

There won't be much on TV tonight since every other channel will run repeats of everything else to go up against the Oscars and I'm fine with that. All I wish to do this evening is just lay back in old, broken down recliner of mine, make another one of these Pepsi and Limons and just veg the heck out. If I watch the awards tonight, I'll watch. If it just takes my mind off of all the crap I've had to deal with this week, then I'm fine and all will be well. I just don't want to see Hugh Jackman dresed as Wolvcerine doing a song and dance number from The Reader.

I almost wish Jackman HAD done the Wolverine number as opposed to some of the crappish stuff on now. About the time he did the "Grease" bit with Beyonce, I almost lost my dinner.

Um, Sam...buddy?

Here's why it's so hard to find Pepsi Cola in your neck of the woods...

You live in freaking Georgia!!!

They tell me...though I wouldn't swear to it...that Coca Cola is pretty popular in these parts, what with the headquarters being in Atlanta and all...

(Sheesh...it's like I'm Jimmy Cagney at the end of One, Two, Three...)

For those who didn't see the movie Ivan mentioned, Cagney plays a Coke Executive in Berlin during the Cold War. It's a funny movie and I do still enjoy watching it. That being said, thanks for pulling out that chestnut, Gramps. Tell me, where did you fight in the Civil War? Did you see McCain?

Frankly, you don't Pepsi in any bar at all, anywhere. I like a good, cold Pepsi once in a while. It's kinda like sleeping with the enemy around here. Like if I was in Ludowici with Gretchen Wilson and they caught us makin' out.

Yeah, I went there. It's my damn blog, so suck it bigots. FREE LOVE!
