Caps...

... you know, it really sucks when you do research, take the time to try out different models, and finally make a purchase... only to complete the setup perfectly under a lagging dogwood tree and find that you can't USE the damnable thing because it is hotter than the surface of the Sun outside...

.. bugger...

... it appears as if yet another evening of my life will pass without finding me swinging with a beer in a backyard hammock... and dammit, if anyone deserves to be chilling back in a hammock, it's me.... especially after my monumental achievements today...

.. in slightly more happy news, I saw this morning that AMC was airing "Cat On a Hot Tin Roof"... on Father's Day.... and that's just charming, no?... Tennessee Williams' great tale of an uncaring, overbearing Father and two sons... Brick and Goober... (you know, only a genius like Williams could get away with naming his characters Brick and Goober)... Brick was a torn alcoholic who only wanted Daddy's love... and Goober was a sanctimonious vulture who just wanted Daddy's money... but any way you look at it, it seems a highly strange choice for Father's Day viewing...

... I watched it anyway, of course... mainly because Liz Taylor rocked that little white dress she had on... and I just couldn't pass that up...

... anyway, as I was just reading about Tennessee's life on ye olde wikipedia a few minutes ago, I read the following line:

Tennessee Williams died at the age of 71 after he choked on a bottle cap

... man, what a way to go... a flamingly talented writer whisked off to eternity by a bottle cap.....

... most of the time, believe it or not, life is just fucking weird...

Bullshit So Far

It begs the question, why was he chewing on a bottle cap.....

Should have watched Father of the Bride or the The Courtship of Eddie's Father. Much better viewing for Father's Day. And Liz was in the first one.

Eric,
I agree. Big Daddy is not a very good role model for Father's Day. Maybe they should have had a Bad Dad Marathon. They could have shown "The Great Santini", "At Close Range", "Affliction", and "I Never Sang for My Father".

Man, that sucks.

BTW, next time you're in the market for a hammock let me know. Hatteras Hammocks' manufacturing plant is right down the road. They do a yard sale every couple of months with some great deals. My dad picked up a couple of hand-woven rope hammocks for $75; they normally sell in the store for about $200 - 300 each.
