Today, while cleaning out one of the kitchen drawers, Akemi came across a photo of a young boy. “It’s you,”she said.
“That isn’t me,”I corrected her. It was, in fact, a photo of my ex’s nephew.
“Of course,”she said, apparently realizing her mistake. “Yours are black and white.”
Hey, check it out. Perfect timing! Our trip to Tokyo happens to coincide with the release of this seasonal McDonalds menu item which is, as far as I can tell, a deep-fried mac and cheese and bechamel burger:
Also, I’m not completely sold on this Japanese McDonalds campaign (the jingle translates to: McDonalds is always here):

Answer: Damnit. I thought we were already in November. Announcement next month. If all goes according to plan. I wouldn’t it?
Mike A. writes: “I’m curious, I don’t remember if you ever put Continuum on your watch list last year or not.”
Answer: Nope. Did watch the first episode though and thought it looked pretty good.

Answer: Hot and incredibly humid. Apparently, air-conditioning is a must.

Answer: There were no concrete plans, but the door was always open. After receiving word of the SGU cancellation, we even toyed with the idea of a wrap-up movie that would have seen a rescue op launched from Earth to Destiny, made up of characters from both SG-1 and SGA.

Answer: Interesting theory. Or maybe you’re just an untrusting person. Poor blondie. 🙁

Answer: As I said, it’s from the Larry David/Ricky Gervais School of Uncomfortable Humor, but it’s far and away the funniest of the new fall shows – and probably the funniest of any of the show currently airing. Unless someone has a better candidate? Careful now.
Nola Shingledecker writes: “Did you ever decide on attire for the Tokyo wedding? I’m still hoping for the full samuri regalia – complete with swords (short and long).”
Answer: I decided to go with the dark suit, white shirt and tie. But will get a perm and don sunglasses for that perfect yakuza touch.
gforce writes: “I wouldn’t worry about that phone call – if it was important they would have at least left a message for you to call back.”
Answer: That’s what I assumed. And they never did, so it couldn’t have been THAT important. Unless, of course, some terrible fate befell the caller in the interim.

Answer: Oh, you’re all gonna love it.
bambamfans writes: “Hey Joe – Have you seen this film review of The Counsellor? I think it’s hilarious, the review reminded me of you and Ivon. Do you dare watch it?”
Answer: It’s too bad Paul and I retired our weekly Bad Movie Night. This one sounds like it could be just as worthy a candidate as Battlefield Earth and Boxing Helena.
