Thursday Brain Dump

I've managed to collect then accidentally forget some thoughts I meant to put down here this week. Here's my brain dump for the day.

I have XXX rated salad dressing. Or maybe its just NC-17. Okay, okay...its more like PG but still, isn't that pushing the envelope as far as salad dressing goes? Its usually - and please correct me if I'm wrong - a pretty tame condiment. When I read through the little vignette on the flip side of my Newman's Own balsamic vinaigrette (vinaigrette vignette - hah!) I discovered a character named "Bitch" along with some rampant fanny-patting. Now, I'm no prude but I think I prefer my salad dressing to have a more refined set of moral values.

There's one last thing about the neighbors from hell. When I was describing their last altercation, I omitted an essential part. The part where the wife threw herself, battering ram style, at the front door after her husband had closed it on her. She's not a small woman and, when she connected, it sounded like someone had lobbed a grenade at the door (as if I had any grenade experience). I couldn't confirm the amount of damage until yesterday. When the husband came home from work. With a brand new front door from Home Depot in the back of his truck. Its my humble opinion that these people really need to commit to something. Go ahead, buy the trailer and be full-fledged white trash if that's what you're shooting for. Dare to dream.

Finally, did everyone watch Lost last night? I kinda feel like its all starting to come together...and that was truly one of the best episodes yet. So, what do you think is going on?

I am enlightened now. I never thought I would see "bitch" on the back of a salad dressing bottle. My loving husband told me "Lost" was a repeat last night, so we didn't watch it. I'm going to have a little chat with him tonight. He really needs to stay on top of these things.

It's Lost? No, I am lost......
Pornographic salad dressing eh? Maybe I can have my people call your people and we can get an interview schedualed that I can post on my "Skins" site! Talk about excitement in the sex industry!

I've never noticed that on the salad dressing!

Oh, Lost was good. I'm tempted to try the numbers on the lottery. Oh, and do you think Hurley owns the box company that Locked worked for?

Are you sure you don't have mad Photoshop skills and are trying to trick us? ;)

OMG I went crazy for Lost last night!
I love that each week we see that the characters are connected even more. Whoever wrote this must've been planning it for a long time to have that many individuals intertwined like that.

Me? I have no clue what the numbers mean, but obviously whatever's behind the hatch has something to do with it... I'm not one to read spoilers though, so I'll just have to wait and find out.

...That salad dressing scares me...

Posted by: Jessa at March 3, 2005 9:55 AM

Your salad dressing is disturbing. The FCC must be good friends with Paul Newman - that, or they don't eat salad. Because I can't imagine them NOT having a field day with this and you know, how it's corrupting our youth and making them want to eat more vegetables and all...

Posted by: RockStar Mommy at March 3, 2005 9:59 AM

that's satan's salad dressing of choice.

Posted by: jodi at March 3, 2005 10:13 AM

Thanks for the salad dressing info, I will be sure to buy it.
Does Lost come on after American chopper, or is it on the History channel? If not, I never have watched it.
Would you dedicate a website to your neighbors with photos and videos etc? It would be great, I saw a site like that a few years ago, it was hysterical.

Lost HUH? T.V. show WHA? I didn't even know there was a T.V. show called "Lost."

But are you really sure you want a salad dressing with morals? It would be all fat-free with soy and that organic crap. Go for the Immoral Bluecheese.

Paul Neman's salad dressing has a Bitch in it...Your neighbors are getting a new door because they need a new trailer to be white watched Lost on tv? Do you think I'm lost now or have I got you Have a great day Chris

Posted by: Vickie at March 3, 2005 10:32 AM

Hee. That has got to be the naughtiest salad dressing ever.

Posted by: Fraulein N at March 3, 2005 10:53 AM

yeah, that was quite a "Rosebud" ending last night.

But I don't think any of it will ever mean anything. I mean, they can go on like this forever, never completely tying it all together or giving full answers to anything. And they'll have to, right? If they want to stay on the air?

Ok, now I just had to go check my fridge for Newman products and I found that his Ranch dressing along with his Spaghetti marinara each have their own little stories on the jar. Not nearly as interesting as your dressing, however.

And I had an idea for you on the neighbor problem... call the mental hospital on them. Surely they have some serious issues that could be held against them when presented in front of a judge? Perhaps?

Posted by: Gweny at March 3, 2005 11:18 AM

Dude, I totally have that dressing! It's my favorite. I noticed that last summer...weird, huh? I pointed it out to everyone I could find in the lunch room.

Posted by: Anne at March 3, 2005 11:31 AM

I just want to know how, with the number of freakin books you read, do you have time to ponder the label on your salad dressing bottle? I confess to being curious enough to check out my own label, but alas, as I feast on the full fat version (9 grams of fat to your 4 grams)of Newman's balsamic vinaigrette, my bottle is void of the porn that yours boasts.

Posted by: lu at March 3, 2005 11:35 AM

Ermm. You have a much more exciting life than I do. What with Doppler heartbeat thingies, trashy neighbors, and immoral salad dressing. I can't keep up! ;)

Since I'll be back in the states in a few months, what, (pray tell), is Lost?

Posted by: Sashinka at March 3, 2005 11:38 AM

Dude, that's some racy salad dressing. I'll never look at Mr. Newman's Balsamic Vinagrette in the same way again.

Posted by: Dawnie at March 3, 2005 12:45 PM

Killer "Lost" ep last night! One bone have I to pick, though...

I'd like to see the guy who had the patience and the to count close to 5 BILLION beans, and I'd love to see the jar that was able to hold all them legumes.

Regardless, seeing those numbers on the hatch gave me the screaming meemies.

And Sashinka, "Lost" is merely the Greatest Television Show In The History Of Human Existence.

Posted by: Jason at March 3, 2005 1:07 PM

I can't believe that's on a bottle of salad dressing! That's hilarious!

Posted by: Dawn (webmiztris) at March 3, 2005 1:26 PM

salad dressing~yeah that is wierd!!! you realy do read EVERYTHING, lol!!

neighbors~i sorta feel bad for em, but it's till fun to chuckle at their expense, ha ha!!!

lost~don't wacth it

Posted by: lizabetty at March 3, 2005 3:18 PM

Yes, I saw Lost and that was a definite great episode. I'm such a twit that when Hurley hugged the french chic, I wept. lol I can't wait for more episodes and I hate it when they repeat old ones.

Posted by: etherian at March 3, 2005 3:45 PM

I heart Lost. I almost cried when I realized that next week is a freakin repeat. It's not fair.
I, too, thought it was one of the best episodes yet.

Posted by: Heather at March 3, 2005 5:45 PM

I did see LOST!!! Best show on tv imo.

Did you catch that Hurley owned a box company? And remember... locke WORKED at a box company in his wheelchair days?

Hello... who had her listening ears on?

Posted by: Snidget at March 3, 2005 9:39 PM

Eating that salad dressing could lead to some serious fanny patting and could even end up...uh, pregnant..*Gasp* ;o)

Posted by: Tricia at March 4, 2005 8:38 AM

oh, lost was soooo good. i am thoroughly freaked out.

and yeah, what is up with Paulie?

Posted by: laura at March 4, 2005 3:31 PM

I'm totally addicted to Lost...

And Snidget is brillaint for making the box company connection!

I agree that it seems like everything is coming together, and I also feel that the true natures of everyone are being revealed. I'm liking and trusting Locke more and more, for instance. For awhile I thought he might be a "bad guy"...

Seems to me like there is some connection between Claire's baby and the source of that number. We have the "special child" being born on the island, and Michael's son, who is also "special". I'm just dying to see how it all turns out!

Posted by: Sabine at March 4, 2005 3:41 PM

On a side note if you do turn your neighbors into a mental hospital I believe you get $25 dollars. Not a bad deal.

You can probrably bring me along because it seems that I am one of the only people not watching Lost. I do have a pretty good excuse I typically work that night and havent had a chance to get hooked on it.

And as for the salad dressing you know the old saying "Sex Sells" - looks like Newman took that to the extreme
