pits and bieces from the weekend

000. The thing I liked best about the Garment District was that all the shirts on each rack were arranged by color. This pleases a certain obsessive-compulsive part of me like no other, and I instantly feel at ease when I see like objects grouped by color. Going into a housewares store and seeing all the candles or plastic coat hangers where they are, compartmentalized and separated by color? Oh yes, all is fine with the world when I see that. Everything is where it needs to be but brother, if you take that purple candle and place it among the vanilla whites...

001. "Pepper sauce" on a burger may not mean creamy peppercorn sauce or something, which may work well on a burger now that I think about it. It may mean "slathered in green and red peppers in a bit of a sauce of their own." But hey, that works too, with a bit of ketchup.

010. New Venture Brothers last night. Very good. Big bit o' character development for the boys, and a truly lovely exchange between Brock and HELPeR. But immediately after the episode, Adult Swim ran ads for LifeAlert. You know, the "I've Fallen and I Can't Get Up" service. The ad where someone says "Every senior citizen should use this" just as the words "EVERY SENIOR CITIZEN SHOULD USE THIS" appear on the screen. GET THIS, OLD PEOPLE, OR THE ROBOTS WILL COME AND THEY NEED OLD PEOPLE'S MEDICINE FOR FUEL. Yeah, way to totally reach out to your target demographic there, Cartoon Network. I'm sure the old folks really loved the episode, too, and the Catherine The Great joke.

011. It's odd when a bartender takes the request of "hot buttered rum" and goes "Uh, I don't think we have any butter." But no problem. Gosling's Dark on its own works just fine as a toast. To Marf!

100. Super special DVD finds at Stop & Shop (with the radio on.) The original Bad News Bears with Walter Matthau and Tatum O'Neal, plus Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor in Silver Streak, both for $15.00 together, and a $9.00 set of old television shows: A Martin & Lewis variety show, some episodes of You Bet Your Life, some of Milton Berle's show, and Liberace's variety show ("Oh George... Mother's watching, George.") I also seem to have purchased this box of fruit snacks called "Yo-Gos." I don't know. I think someone must have tossed it in my cart as a prank, much like the time a certain shopping companion snuck the Coffee Jell-o into my cart, and I retaliated much much much later by sneaking in Tiny Cans O' Diet Coke. Maybe I put the stuff in myself. I don't know. The moral of the story, kids is, THIS IS WHY YOU DON'T GO GROCERY SHOPPING WHEN DRUNK, OK.
