    So just for grins we brought along one of those big sacks of Smithfield pork rinds, hair and all, set them out on the table. Many curious glances, some featuring evident disdain. Then they got sampled. Then they were all gone.

    We have the same phenomenon each summer at our annual parties...who wants a hot dog? Little response...but slap down a plate full of grilled natural casing franks, and they're gone in an instant.

    I have double plans in the fall/winter with one of my besties from undergrad days. I'm heading to NYC in November for their Marathon weekend and, hopefully, volunteering with her for the event itself. Then in early January, we are meeting up in Nashville for the US Figure Skating National Championships - doubly exciting in an Olympic year.

    In NYC I always stay in Park Slope in Brooklyn. One of my favorite neighborhoods.

    It was never my fave. I watched the crap out of it. But not one of my favorites.

    It was really before my time, so I havenít watched a ton of it either. I love the design of the Mach 5, but those scripts areÖnot great.
    Currently weíre watching the 1984 premiere episode of Transformers, which remains rad.

    I love the old Hanna-Barbera stuff. I think I've mentioned this before.

    I recorded a bunch of old HB stuff from Boomerang, including Wacky Races, which was before my time but was a predecessor to Bailey's Comets, which was also before my time, but I remember watching in syndication. I also recorded some Top Cat, Josie and the P-cats, Yogi Bear, and Magilla Gorilla. MG was a really dumb cartoon, FYI. Top Cat was hilarious!

    Yes! I did post this before b/c the wankerizer won't let me post Josie's band name!!!
