Very strange. Inexplicable, weird and kind of disconcerting.
We were in Concord today and Teischan, given a choice of what and where to eat, quite surprisingly chose Wendy’s — even though we had suggested her usual favorite, Friendly’s.
They have changed the menu and I am not sure whether it is for the best (and I do happen to own Wendy’s shares).
They, as is their practice, had two large TVs. It was streaming news and stock market happenings including stock prices. I had not checked any stock in a few hours but seeing Google down $15 did not seem right. I didn’t get too excited to begin with. I then saw some references to the trade war with China! That seemed wrong. I had heard, in the morning, that we had declared a truce on that. Ahhh!
Then I happened to notice the day and time. May 15. It was May 21. The time was also wrong.
Tried to explain this to an oriental manager. He was not too conversant with the English.
Given that it was Ann Summers that came up with the notion of a ‘National Orgasm Day‘ back in 2001, those of us who know the legacy invariably turn to them around this time of the year to see what they have in mind to commemorate the day in style. This year it is this new collection of magnetized, powered sex toys. The video, reminiscent of ‘beautiful agony’ was cute and as ever masterful. So don’t dilly dally, it is going to be upon you in 11-days.
Wow. ‘Just’ 37-years ago? But, as far as I am concerned it has always been around. I didn’t make it to the U.S., this last time around, until February 1985 [the first time having been, but for a year, in Buffalo, 1967 – 1968]. So, CNN was here when I got here. Not sure when I started watching it. I think I was first exposed to it in all the hotels I was staying — given that I was travelling on business three to four days a week during those first 18 months.
I am a news junkie and have been for at least a decade. I watch CNN and MSNBC for at least 90-minutes in total every day. So I am sure glad that we have CNN.
Happy Birthday, CNN. Thanks Ted.
