Well, I guess Bill Cosby is still good for something.

I just got some Chinese food, and got a packet of mustard sauce for my spring rolls; so I thought I would try it. Then I remembered an old Bill Cosby routine wherein he tells the story of taking a girl to a Chinese restaurant. He wanted to get his money's worth, so he slathered mustard sauce on his food. He tried to remain cool, but the girl knew something was wrong, because, he said, "my eyes started to bleed." So I moved my can of Pepsi right by my hand, and very cautiously dipped one of my spring rolls into it. Cosby was right -- my precautions were necessary. That stuff will clear your sinuses!

Anybody wanna buy a mansion?

This one is for sale for the rock-bottom price of just $500K. Check out the photos -- they don't build 'em like this anymore.



Anybody else watching "Sons of Liberty?"

Is it just me, or does the actor playing Governor Thomas Hutchinson look like Mitt Romney?

Anybody else find themselves rolling their eyes any time they see an American flag these days?

I'm not sure when it started -- maybe it was during the Bush years -- but anymore I just find it and other symbols of ersatz patriotism really irritating. And don't even get me started on that smarmy new Almay commercial with Carrie Underwood. Now makeup is patriotic? Really?

DU ladies: Remember this guy?



About those ads for home security systems . . .

Of course these companies are trying to scare people into buying their products. And this being the US, I'm sure they're effective.

I wonder: Are these systems popular elsewhere, say Europe? Are the same scare tactics used to sell them?

Watching a Smithsonian Channel doc about flight attendants.

It was actually about the stewardesses of the '60's. That was back when it was glamorous and fun. The more manageable 707 instead of the huge 747; the uniforms, the fancy meal service; the travel -- I wanted to be a stewardess. I am lucky I was too short to qualify; by the time I would have finished school and been ready to start applying to the airlines, it was already going downhill. I would have been very disappointed. But it must have been wonderful back then.

The Way Stuart Scott Smacked Down a racist ESPN Exec in the 90s

Was pure genius. Featuring Keith Olbermann to tell us what happened.

Sadly, Stuart Scott passed away on January 4 at age 49.

That's too bad.

Hard to say why the restaurant didn't last. I hear restaurants have the highest failure rate of any type of business.
