You know how when you are sharing a meal with nice and thoughtful people and you happen to soil the area around your mouth with food, those nice and thoughtful people discreetly and respectfully point out the blemish to you so that you can quickly take the appropriate measure with a napkin?

I am not one of those nice and thoughtful people.

The enjoyment as well as perversion out of watching people in their undignified state are just too much to pass up. And I can keep a straight face while relishing every moment of such a blessed advent.

Unfortunately, they usually wise up and end up wiping off the food crumbs, to which I shriek in dismay - on the inside of course.

I am fully aware that there are other twisted individuals out there like myself, which is why you will see me wipe my chin, lips and cheeks upon every other bite.

The same principle applies when it comes to the zipper thing.

Went to the gym for the first time in ____.

Why do people drive around in circles in the parking lot of the gym in search of the closest spot to park. Aren't they there to get some, you know, like EXERCISE?

My TV is more than 15 years old, and I may be in the market for a new one.

But what is the point of advertising the high resolution plasma screens on TV? Isn't the clarity of the screen they are trying to sell you at the mercy of the quality of the very TV they are trying to talk you into replacing?

Truly mind boggling stuff.

Will be back to blogging more regularly soon.

Walking my dog

Since this blog is named The Best Dog In the World, I might as well blog about my dog every once in awhile. In case you haven't heard, my dog's pictures adorn a website called Brace yourself for some serious cuteness. No, the domain is not for sale. Sorry.

I run with Noah every day. At times, my friendly neighbors moping around in their front yards flag me down to chat, but these days I just pick up my speed and zoom by them without stopping.


My dog, if I stopped to chat, would always squat down right on the spot to take care of his business before greeting my neighbors. It never fails. What is there to talk about while I stoop to pick up after my dog while apologizing so profusely? Yes, even the Best Dog in The World has to poop.

As most dogs do, when given a treat, my dog after securing it in his mouth runs over to some place in the house out of sight from the world.

Have you noticed that when dogs use the bathroom, privacy is of zero concern, but when they eat, they will go great lengths to be left alone? In contrast, we of the most advanced species do things completely the other way around.

Truly mindboggling stuff.


Addendum:  In case you haven't done it, it is your duty to go visit Brotha Buck's blog. It is truly a work of art - possibly the Best Blog In The World.

Gotta be careful with words

I really have to start watching my choice of words here because this is getting really scary.

What in the world was I doing looking that up, you ask? No, I didn't. According to, someone got to my blog that way. You will have to trust me on that one. Please. That aspect of femininity isn't all that important to me. Seriously.

Does your chest look like your father's? That's perfectly okay. Mine does too.

Overheard cell phone conversation

To quickly set the stage....

This woman was talking on the phone in the parking lot of a grocery store in Laguna Beach. Parking is a premium in this beach town and tow trucks routinely haul away cars, catching off guard people who sneak in their cars into the parking lot and expect to get away with it.

Woman: "You have my Mercedes-Benz. You towed it away?"
Woman: "How did you tow it away?"


Woman: "Ha, ha. That's very funny."

Three Underrated Movies

Name three underrated movies. I need help filling out the Netflix queue

Mine? These are off the top of my head.

This movie received bad reviews primarily because of poor special effects. But come on, people. There is a thing called the "plot." The movie's plot is different from anything that I have been exposed to and its uniqueness makes it hard to classify the film into any particular genre. And Robin Williams and the young Kirsten Dunst put together very fine acting performances that you don't want to miss.

This is a story about a mother and her children living through the confusing days of the civil war in Greece. Because of its ideological overtones, the movie got written off as an anti-Communist propaganda film. That is just too bad because it is about the beauty of a mother's love for her children which is deeply touching. On a personal note, I think I like it a lot because the mother in the film reminds me a lot of my own mother. The Cold War is over and so is the debate over Communism, so don't worry about exposing your mind to indoctrination (if there is any).

The Village
That poor guy. In the aftermath of his blockbuster success with the Sixth Sense, movie goers now walk into Night Shyamalan's films bracing for equally suspenseful and shocking endings. People should get a grip, do away with pre-conceived notions, and allow this young talented director to grow without pidgeonholing him.

What are your three? Please comment or better yet write a blog entry about them. Remember, they have to be underrated, which means they have to be either very obscure or disliked and written off by a lot of people and you find yourself in disagreement with them.

Company picnic

Had an awesome weekend!

Was invited to a company picnic at Lake Mission Viejo by a customer of mine. They have always treated me as one of their own even though I am an outside vendor.

The BBQ was sublime. Couple that with a fun boat ride and hanging out with people in their drunken stupor away from the work environment. It couldn't have been better.

The best part were the picnic games organized by the park staff: water balloons, hula hoops, the tug of war, to name a few.

Learned a thing or two about myself:  I have an extremely competitive edge when it comes to these silly games.

Especially against a bunch of seven year olds. Gotta kick their butt now before they grow up to kick mine.
