Funny, The Wife Said That Just This Morning 

You are .swf	 You are flashy, but lack substance.  You like playing, but often you are annoying. Grow up.
Which File Extension are You?

I'm proud to say I share my file extension with Michael Blowhard of 2Blowhards.

Sluggo.swf is going on my tombstone.

Another Media Gap Plugged 

Via SloppyDawg, we welcome the inauguration of Jersey Journal Now, a newslog for Hudson County.

The very first item announces that Menendez will be named by Corzine today to be my new Senator.

Could be worse. Could be Corzine.

Les Mallomars Sont Arrives! 

The lady on the left is packing Mallomars on a blissful day in the '50s.

Apparently, there are a lot of things I didn't know about Mallomars.

For instance, they were once as Jersey as Taylor Ham. Their roots are in West Hoboken (now Union City).

They're still made by the National Biscuit Company (Nabisco), but today the Nation is Canada.

They're only sold from October to April as the delicate, natural chocolate can't be shipped to the makers' satisfaction during the summer. Not sure I buy that one, but this article in today's Times (from which I stole the title of this post) claims that, especially in the New York area, where 70% of the puffy little hockey pucks are consumed, their arrival causes an annual flutter among the connoisseurs.

People have opinions about Mallomars.

There are recipes.

I'll tell you the truth, though; I remember them from when I was a kid, but I didn't like them then and I wouldn't trade an Oreo for ten of them now. Kind of like Smores dug up from a pyramid.

I'd pay cash money for that lady's Mallomars Tiara, though.


Standard Excuses 

I expect this particular garden to go relatively untended over the next few weeks as my little empire is being relocated to a much nicer building a few blocks away. The date for the move was cunningly arranged for December 23rd and the Home Office is being very coy about any details other than that.

I have to assume that nobody has thought about anything and will have to go about making all arrangements myself. I expect I'll be proved wrong on a few matters, but, of course, it's impossible to pre-determine which ones.

I'm surprisingly stress-free (as of now) about this because, I think, I've already internalized the fact that this is going to be a cluster-bang with me playing the role of the Nubian slave.

What are you going to do?

I've Been Glichified 

And bloggerated. Anyone tuning in to this channel for much of this afternoon and this evening received the dreaded "This Page Contains No Data" screen.

Well, duh. I'm a blogger.

No idea what caused it. I'm guessing something to do with the framis. I'll have to consult with my tech guy, Jim.

Everything seems to be copaceticated, now.

UPDATE: DarkoV explains it all in comments. I didn't want to say it, but I suspected a Croatian curse.

Carnival of The New Jersey Bloggers, Number 29 

This Full House does a very stylish job with the Carnival this week. If you want to know what's going on in New Jersey, or at least in the dark, closeted, obsessed minds of New Jersey Bloggers (and who doesn't?), get on over there.

He's The Best 

They keep saying that all that's left for Reggie Bush, the remarkable tailback for USC is to 'strike the pose'. In other words, be a self-promoting jerk and imitate the figure of the Heisman Trophy after his next touchdown.

I don't know if you saw this play yesterday against UCLA or what he did to Fresno State, but what they really ought to do is change the Heisman figure to the one on the left.

Here's an article about him in the NY Times and it has a link to a video highlight reel of his exploits in high school. Some of that stuff simply has to be seen to be believed.
