That's All It Took ...

Three days into the New Year.

That’s all it took.

Here. Here’s a brief synopsis.

“Brother of Madonna” is now a joke catch phrase.

Italian Sweet Crème coffee creamer is a bit of a treat ... but I wouldn’t want it as a permanent substitution.

Rupe’s still anal. Our Christmas tree was cut and trimmed so’s to fit completely within the “green” bin for trash pickup. Complete with closing lid. Go figger.

The L.A. Times, in their infinite wizdumb, has raised Rupe’s Thursday/Friday/Saturday/Sunday newspaper subscription from $.75 per week to $2.75 per week. Rupe’s not thrilled ... especially when we've had the same subscription rate for the last three years. For the time being, no paper will be gracing Rupe’s doorstep in protest. And someone’s gonna hear about it.

Upon coming home from a full day’s work one evening, I was greeted with “Your turn. Deal with your children.” Never a good sign.

Rupe heard a very, very disturbing story about Michael Buffer.

The See’s Candies® Victoria Toffee Rupe acquired as a Christmas gift is being milked to its fullest in teeny, tiny increments.

Chick fights rock.

California winters confuse the life and leaves out of deciduous trees.

Carl Weathers isn’t aging well.

Paella should not be made with artichoke hearts. Period.

Most of these will be submitted to further detail down the line.

Vote for your favorite. And good luck!

........................... Ruprecht ( STOP )


  1. Artichokes in paella? Now that is just ridiculous. CV knows these things.

  2. "Chick fights rock" has got to be my favorite

  3. I'm partial to the lives and leaves of trees :)

  4. Who the hell put artichoke hearts in paella? Usually I'm of the mind that when an ingredient isn't native to the land of the dish you're making, it ought not be added.

  5. Ok....I am intrigued by it all. The Christmas tree grabs me the most I have to admit because that is soooo me to a T. Oh and I have never had paella. There I said it. I am starting to learn that food wise, I have not yet begun to live.

  6. I had the local rag stop delivering awhile back too, for much the same reason.

    I know advertising revenue was/is down, but I didn't/don't want to pick up the slack.

    What's up with Chubbs Peterson?

  7. Chick Fights Rock has certainly piqued my interests. Not because I want to be in one nor do I choose to watch them, but why does Rupe think they rock?
    Is a female fighting with a rock or is it women who get into scrapes with each other is most entertaining?
    I'm confused. What's new?

  8. Artichokes do not belong in paella. Ever. I am curious about the chick fights and exactly why you had to deal with the children....that phrase has crossed my lips many a time!


  9. Votes for the Disturbing Michael Buffer story. I used to watch WWE alla time heh.

  10. Personally, I am all for Sweet Italian Cream starting out every friggin' day of 2009! My mouth would be very happy, to be sure!

  11. It is a tossup for me: chick fights and YOU DEAL
