Nothing too heavy this first morning of 2009…random randmoness for ya:
Job hunt update…I did have a phone interview yesterday. Phone interviews are awkward. They just are. I hope I didn’t sound like a dork.
I had Korean food yesterday at Yong’s in Hendersonville. I’m not the expert on Korean cuisine but my friend Tara is. She is a Hawaii native and lived in Los Angaleeez for many years. You can get lots of Korean there.
When she moved here, she happened to find Yong’s on Walton Ferry Rd. in Hendersonville. She took me there about a year ago and dadgum…good stuff. She makes the food fresh right there on a stove. Ride out there and get you some.
Me and Cherry were supposed to go do something last night but dang if that Cherry got sickly. Probably a good thing though cause like my mother is so fond of saying…”Lotta drunks out on New Year’s Eve”. Heh.
Me and Cherry spent the better part of New Year’s Eve looking on the Tennessean website at State employees salaries. As a former State employee, it’s kinda mindblowing and upsetting that anybody can look and see what anybody that works for the State makes. Why is it then, Cherry and I couldn’t tear ourselves away from it? Kinda like when I discovered that you can look up property values and see what your friends paid for their houses.
For somebody as nosy as me, junk like that is like porn.
I’m waching Leave It To Beaver this New Year’s morning. I’m cracking up at Wally and The Beav. Beaver introduces his brother to Miss Landers and says “May I present my brother, Wally. He’s a sophomore in high school and he took a bath and stuff.”
Larry, Gilbert and Whitey climb up in a tree to watch Beaver and Miss Landers while she’s having dinner at the Cleaver home . Larry says “Look! She has toes!” Whitey says “Where?” Larry says “Coming out of her shoes! I’ve never seen a teacher eat before.”
Beaver’s friend Gilbert reminds me of my longtime friend Dean Smith when he was a little boy. (Dean’s Daddy is that hunka hunka Carl Smith and his mama was that hottie Goldie Hill).
The resemblance between my friend and Beaver’s friend caused me to Google Gilbert and I found this interesting article that Stephen Talbot (who played Dean’s look alike) wrote for Salon.com. Go read it.
And we all thought Gilbert was just second banana to the Beav. Who knew he came THIS close to being tried for espionage? That he spent his life trying to hide his television identity and has now come to embrace that part of his life. (What I like to call “The Goober Syndrome.”) AND to my absolute TV Geekette delight, Gilbert produces one of my favorite shows on PBS, Frontline. (I dvr this regularly cause it comes on in the middle of the night, usually)Hard to comprehend that like the article says, Wally and Beaver are American Icons, yet, don’t have much of any sort of cut from Beaver. Something about that is very wrong.
I lurve the internets!
