The best things in life are free
but you can keep 'em for the birds and bees
Now give me money
(That's what I want)
That's what I want

Why do I hate golf?

Because I suck at it. If I had any skill whatsoever, I would probably love it. But I don't, so I don't.

See how that works?

Although, I am watching the Masters right now. Mostly, because I love the announcer's quiet Irish brogue.

I overheard a conversation yesterday about how the billionaires are driving the millionaires out of Jackson, Wyoming. I had to laugh. The comment was made in reference to real estate prices.

It is, undeniably, one of the most picturesque spots in the US, but, honestly, I like Bozeman better... as a city. Outdoors-wise, Jackson takes the cake, mainly on the shoulders of the mighty mighty Jackson Hole Resort, which is pretty much the Daddy Mack of the continental US for terrain, and Grand Teton National Park (pictured above, just behind my thumb.)

In that same conversation, the guy said, "Well, eight figures is the new million." In addition to using the hated ________ is the new _________ phrase, dude's a fucking moron. A million bucks is still a million bucks, and god bless you if you've got it. But, then again, as the esteemed scholar, P Diddy once noted, "Mo' money, mo' problems." And "the eight-figure nigga, by the name of Jigga" also chronicles the difficulties of overcoming the burdens of having great wealth by simply being Jay Z, the best rapper alive.

I am going over to my buddy's house later for steak & Sopranos.

With the exception of the second episode's extended dream sequence, the show is on fire in this, its final season.

I have to post Carmela's guest blog, but I am having some html issues converting a funny photoshop she did... I'm workin' on it.
