  1. I love Reagan’s joke about bombing the Soviet Union, I wish more people still had personality.
    When you have personality, there are always lots of people out there that bash you for it. It comes with the territory.

    Easy humor is just easy. I guess that is why so many people indulge in it.

    Were you disappointed with the Chex chips? I was.

    It’s a curious thing about all the bitter and jaded thing, I loved it when I was young, don’t care for it now.

  2. The whole arrow thing (or how you see them in this monologue) was ‘skewed’ – and just think, I called you ‘normal’ the other day.

    By the way, I don’t believe I have ever heard you say but I assume your daily commute is quite long? How long are the bus rides and why do you turn the recorder off during those?

    And if this is okay to ask, what handheld device do you use to record on?

    Onward with the listening…

  3. Chad, I liked the Chex Chips… I might get them again…

    Jimbo, my commute is quite long – 90 minutes from door to door in general. I record on the bus sometimes, but it’s just not a good enviroment to record in.

    I use the Roland R-05 recorder.

  4. I was wishing the Chex chips had a stronger crunch, and I need a much stronger intense flavor. I’m “In Search Of” really flavorful chips. I feel that I need this spicy salty explosion of flavor, sometimes.

    Once I had a zero bar and it was the best thing eVAH! but i could not recreate the experience. I have faith that one day it will happen again.

  5. We gave Zero bars here – matter of fact, I had one like 10 days ago. We even have a chocolate Zero (or something) here at times.
