Floyd's Blogger Population Doubles!

The rarity of the event second only to the Grand Alignment of the Planets, today an actual living three-dimensional protoplasmic blogger will be driving down our state-maintained pothole pathway (with grass growing in the middle of the single lane without turnouts). If he is an uncommonly skilled navigator, finds our road, then does not become fainthearted and turn back after the second or third impulse to do so, Chaz Hill of Oklahoma's Dustbury will become the fourth Real Live Blogger to visit Goose Creek.

As some of you may know, Chaz is now about midway in his third World Tour, which he narrates day by day along his summer sojourns. He'll be driving down today from Beckley, West Virginia. I was first introduced to Chaz last summer by Susanna Cornett, and if I'm remembering correctly, Chaz and Susanna met in Jersey for a meal (Susanna, Meryl Yourish and Kurt Brobeck of what is now known as "the Coffee Sutras" are the first three corporeal bloggers to honor us with a visit).

If you're not familiar with Dustbury, there may be civil penalties in your state, but it's not too late to set the situation right. In addition to his wideranging daily tongue-in-check observations, opinions and insights, don't miss the alternative world that resides in his sidebar, including Vital Features.

If he gets here in time, we'll DO FLOYD. Buddies, that'll set his head t'spinnin'. Dazzled is what he'll be. Not sure what all we'll get into, but for sure, I'll point out The Traffic Light that we're so proud of in the county. We may wonder up onto the Parkway, tour the Chatteau Morrisette Winery. Heck, we may hear the "Route 66" theme song and just head for the open road and lives of reckless adventure, throw the top down on the Dakota pickup, and cruise the East Coast for a few months. Chaz has his laptop, so we'll check in from time to time. We are two wild and crazy guys.

Can we at least shoot Brad Pitt?

Yeah, Chaz. Seems like we need to start out on our wild rampage with a list. I think we should open it up to our shy readers who are too timid to take a Wild Ride themselves.

Okay. Brad Pitt. And I vote for the OxyClean guy and the producer of BowFlex Infomercials. Anybody else have suggestions?

Please take out the folks who do the Ditechdotcom commercials, if you'd be so kind. If there's enough ammo left, how about the smarmy, condescending weather readers on The Weather Channel.

I could go on, but there's only so much two wild and crazy guys can do. These would be a good start in my estimation.

Please don't forget that smarmy abs-of-steel bastid with the bad haircut.

We are two wild and crazy guys.

Yup...who will be sound asleep in the First palor by midnight. *G*

I could never do anything to hurt Sharon Resultan.

Jennifer Lopez, either.

I was hoping that you might be able to take out that imbecile "Ice Cream Man" who taunts the Stepford Neighborhood adults with his ice cream cone hanging out the window.

He makes me want to drive my Pathfinder into his stupid face and shove it in reverse for good measure. I hate dumbass commercials (Kohl's) that have nothing to do with what they're portraying at the moment. Like Gap clothing. Or those dancing freaks in the office building advertising the Wonderful World of Cotton. Ridiculous. And don't tell me there's some hidden subliminal message in them. The only hidden anything I see are the hidden bottles of Jack Daniel's over on Madison Avenue.

Jennifer Lopez's new haircut is god-awful.

I think I'll go have a drink now.

Make mine a double.

In fact, since I had to translate that into Colloquial Floydian, make mine a triple.

Someday I would love to visit Goose Creek...if you'd have me with my motley crew there.

we might just turn off the d*** tv set, ya know? my family hasn't missed it these twelve long years (count 'em!).

and every time i think about tuning back in it takes about 7 minutes for the commercials to convince us otherwise.

amen to dodge pickups and fragments from floyd.
