Coal doesn’t seem to be used as much as it used to be.

I guess not that many people are making snowmen anymore.


note: Old King Coal was a merry old sole ???

double note: I wonder if Superman‘s Fortress of Solitude has been affected by global warming.


Today #36

Today was “No Pain: A Little Gain



I want to be naturally invincible.

Just the knowledge that if Superman tried to make me pick up some litter that he though I had dropped, but really didn’t … I wouldn’t have the slightest twinge of nervousness creep over me

… or a horrible feeling in my stomach
… or “deer in headlights” syndrome
… or the sweats.

The best thing about it would be that I wouldn’t have to work out, learn martial arts, or eat properly.

It would all be “natural”: like being double jointed or being able to wiggle your ears.

I’m sure I’d use this ability wisely … like I’m sure if I won a huge lottery I’d use all the money wisely.

It would just be nice to say, “I don’t think so” to Superman, if he tried to make me pick up that litter that he thought I had dropped, but really didn’t.


note: if Superman had landed in China, I bet the farmers who found him would have had a tough time explaining that one.

Superman would probably be saving the Great Wall of China, pandas, and the communist party more often too!


notes to myself #182

When we are 45 years old, the person at McDonalds puts an extra Quarter Pounder with cheese in our bag. Total score!!!




I think my dinner plates are “tectonic plates” because they always chip along the edges when next to each other.

From all the chips on the edges of them, there have been a lot of “earthenware quakes” recently.

note: My bowls have recently become “dust-bowls” because I don’t use them that often.

double note: Why isn’t “home plate” in baseball round? (this is a rhetorical question)

triple note: to paraphrase Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor in Superman, “We all have our faults, mine happen to be the San Andreas.”





If I had to choose between being a “movie villain” or a “comic book villain”, I’d want to be a comic book villain because they don’t seem to die.

I guess a comic book villain in a movie would be the best.

note: Superman came from another planet and only had super human strength on earth. Maybe on another planet I could really kick some serious ass.


The World Bank



I want to borrow money from the World Bank; everyone else seems to.

I haven’t seen too many World Bank branches around though.

note: I’d like to open up a “world savings” account too, but I can’t decide between the James Bond, Superman, or Indiana Jones options.  Decisions, decisions.
