Saturday, May 28, 2005
Yesterday ( friday ) about 7:30 at night , there was the most perfect rainbow down the beach I have ever seen . It looked like it started at Lighthouse Point in New Haven and ended somewhere in the water near Bridgeport . I was totally dumbfounded and I dont know why . It was truly an awe inspiring site . The colors were so pronounced and it was enormous.
I know It might be a little gay , but I just had to write and tell you guys

My Packing It In ( sort of ) Column
Well If most of dont know , This Saturday is going to be my last saturday night at Donovan's Reef . I have worked them for about 15 years straight and I have come to outgrow them . When I was in Florida sitting the pool with my kids having a great time I got to thinking that when Im home I dont get to spend as much "QUALITY" time because I am always doing something for them or some activity that involves them and I never really get to just sit back and enjoy the kids . So I came to a decision that the kids are only going to little once and I dont want to miss it because of work so I came to this decision . Now that the summer is here , all things happen on saturday night and I am not missing them this year .
So If you arent doing anything on saturday night , come on down and see me for the last time on a saturday ever. Im going to really miss my regulars ( who read the column everyday because I threaten them ) Bob & Patty , Anne & The Kernel ( yah, it's spelled right) , The Expresso Martini duo , Tony Bagodonuts , Lovely Lisa , Lenny & Jackie , Rob Greenburg , Sally & Bob , Jabberjaw Bob , Hootie , Daveyboy & Kimmie , Pete Julie & Sheehan , Big Todd , Burr , Marissa & Erin and The Hens also everyone I missed in between
Thanks everyone for the great weekend memories !

Starting the Week with a Rant !
What happened to Men's Underwear ??
O & A were talking about this a couple weeks back and it sparked a thought in my head . Guys , Remember when you used to go to the store and buy the regular 3 pack of underwear , your in and out of the store in 10 minutes . Now they have 3/4 nude men with Giant Hogs in thier pants on the package of a 2 pack, It may as well be gay porn on the cover. And now there are about 8 different cuts on underwear for men so you have to stand there and stare at the packages with the men on it like you are enjoying it trying to see how this certain kind of underwear looks on this nude male model. It is kinda embarrassing , they might as well have a guy blowing another one because it is that close .
Another thing about buying clothes , that is places like Abercrombie , you go into the store to buy a pair of jeans and there are 100 pictures of shirtless boys frolicing in the sand ?? Dude , Im just trying to buy a pair of jeans ..couldnt let up on the half nude boys for me a little . Then what is worse is that If you decide to buy a pair and go up to the counter to pay for it , they put you jeans in a shopping back with .....you guessed it , Nude men on the bag so you have to walk around the mall with this frigin bag all day . Try getting a glimpse of yourself carrying that bag in the window ....it's not a pretty site.
Im not homophobic , Im just pointing out a fact !
Ok , here we go .....

Hoot's Wicked Wednesday
Hey all!!! It's humpday and halfway to the weekend. I am going to do a little bit of a Richie rant here, but don't worry it won't be long.
I have noticed lately that a lot of new cars and trucks have turn signal lights that are red. Ummmmm...............???????????................ Hello????????? The brake lights are red. Why in the fuck would you make the turn signals red also? You can't clearly see them separately from the brake light. I would love to know what fuck nut wizard of an auto designer came up with that idea.
Fuck nut designer: "Hey I know of a great design change we can make. Let's make the turn signals red just like the brakes. This way people who are behind the car that is turning might not see the signal to turn and they will rear end the car in front of them. That would be funny!"
Fuck nut's manager who is just as much a fucknut as the rest of them: "Yes that would be a great idea. And we will make the rear end out of one piece of material so that when he gets rear ended he will have to replace the whole back of the car. Heh heh."
?@!@!$$%%#$ is what I have to say about that. It amazes me how stupid some people in this world really are.
Alrighty then........let's do it to it!

"Media criticism does exist in America. But by and large, it is not citizen-based criticism designed to make media a better source of information in a democracy. Instead, it is a cynical manipulation of the discourse designed to silence even the mildest dissent from the conservative, militantly pro-corporate dogma that has come to pass for news in an era when "reporters" brag about the size of their American-flag lapel pins."

Hoot's Monday Mashup
Hello everyone in TDC land. Yes it is me Hoot23 takin over the chores for a week here in our little slice of madness we call home. I know Richie needed this week off cause I think he was gonna pass out from lack of sleep last Thursday when I saw him before he left for his well deserved rest.
Let's get right to this.
Everone needs to get this software.
In Buffalo, N.Y. a twenty-two-year-old event disc jockey Rob Lovington, regarded by a growing number of his peers as one of the most influential and groundbreaking DJs currently available for weddings, parties, dances and corporate events, thwarted industry convention by closing a wedding reception Friday night with a song other than Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven.”
I went to the Yankees game on Saturday with a friend who does these great bus trips. $65.00 and that includes the ticket, bus ride down, all the beer you can drink and all the food you can eat. MMMMMMMMMM!!! It turned out to be a real good day. It didn't rain and the Yanks won with a little old fashioned style and a complete game by the Moose. And another good game from them Sunday! Maybe they are turning the corner finally and starting to play the way they should for the money they are getting paid. Need a few more wins in a row before we can say that with any confidence.
I am sure this has been on here before but it is still fun for about 30 seconds.
Some people are just nuts! Couple Digs Up Corpse in Bizarre Scheme.
Lots of cool stuff to find here. Check out the Internet Archive.

Oh wait. I almost forgot one of these:Quite the angle!

Rich's Tuesday Tidbits
4 days till vacation and I cant wait .
All you married men might be able to relate to this , Do you have a wife who hangs on to the holidays too long ?
My wife is the type that wont let go of the holidays until weeks after they have gone by and it drives me nuts because I am borderline anal retentive as it is . We decorate for every holiday because the kids enjoy it and it makes the house look nice , I mean Xmas (which is the biggie) , Easter , St paddys day , Thanksgiving ect ect. Now my say is that when the holiday is over you should put everything away within the next week because what is the sense of having it up when the holiday passes but my wife thinks it should be up for 3 weeks or more after the holiday goes by ? FOR WHAT REASON ?
And If I take the liberty to put the stuff away during the day when she is at work , you would think I ran over the dog in the sriveway and she will go as far as to go get the stuff and put it back out ....Maybe I am alone on this but fella's If you have the same problem , let me know about it !

Rich's Monday Super Column
I went to the mall friday night after my Softball game to pick up some last minute things for my vacation with my family and got quite a sad yet funny surprise. There was a pro wrestler there named John Cena and he was signing autographs for 25 bucks a pop . I was saying the same thing you are thinking right now ...Who the hell would pay $25 to get one of these from this guy ?
Well let me tell you that the line was a good 1/4 of a mile long inside the mall and there were hardly any kids in that line . There were grown adults standing line dressed like I guess the way this guys dresses because they all had the same thing on , There were 2 guys about 26 a piece with Championship Belts around thier waists ..let me repeat that part ..CHAMPIONSHIP BELTS AROUND THER WAISTS !!@#$?
Please do me favor and please stop , you are killing me with joke overload and I dont think I can handle it . You are not the guy signing the autographs, you are never going to be the guy signing the autographs due to that ring ding problem you have and your not the champ of anything ..So Grow up and SSSTTTOOPP !
