Not Too Bad

First week with the newbie, he doesn't like nights but I think he'll be OK.

The insurance company came through with the funds, the body guy is ordering parts, the car should be in the shop next week and I should have it back before the middle of the month.

It's August, which means it is about time to change my header pic again. I think I'll go with Myrna Loy, she has the same birthday as me.

I have to pick up some powder this weekend as well.

And finally, appropos of nothing I suppose, CPI Security commercials really annoy me. The only thing they are missing are the fuzzy bunnies. A gun in hand is worth a hell of a lot more than a voice on an intercom, but I guess it would make for a pretty short commercial (door gets kicked in, BLAM! uh yeah...just have them send the coroner around, thanks).

Have a great day!

LOL That actually WOULD make a great commercial!

Intercom guy: "Sir/Ma'am, we have indications that there is an alarm going off at your residence, is everything okay?"

Homeowner: "Yeah, its all okay now, thanks!" (sounds of fresh mag being inserted)

Intercom guy: "That's good to hear! Now, as part of your package, we will be dispatching a nearby law enforcement officer to get statements, how many body bags should we have him bring?"

Homeowner: "Two. And a Ziplock bag. My wife was cleaning the shotgun at the time. Oh, and do you happen to have a number for a locksmith?"

Intercom guy: "We have three in your area, but I would recommend 'BreakYerEffinAnkle Locksmiths', they are having a special right now where they'll beef up your door frame at the same time. There are also two painters in your area that come highly recommended, would you like their numbers, as well?"

Homeowner: "hmmm...tempting, but I think I'll pass. I like the patterns the spray made. Gives my entry hall a nice 'Jackson Pollack' look."

Intercom guy: "I'd like to see photos of that! Well, the officer is on his way, is there anything else we can do for you?"

Homeowner: "Nope, I'm good. Thanks!"

I like that script! It would certainly appeal to the gun owners, wouldn't it?

Thanks for dropping by RA!

Heh, yeah! I always laugh at those ADT (or whatever the alphabet soup is) commercials, where the family walks in on a robbery in progress, and is "traumatized" and gets their service to protect the house, which, as far as I can tell, puts some guy on a phone however many thousand miles away, and provides a projector for the front yard that displays matrix-like graphics all over the front of your house. I think Colt should do a similar commercial...family walks in on a burglary, Dad caps the arsewipes in question while Mom covers his six, kiddos disappearing to pre-arranged safe spots. Then a quick call for the meat-wagon while Mom gets the kids a juicebox.

Sounds good to me! Let's roll some film...
