Non Sequiturs - May 2010

I'm taking a break from this writing exercise, for awhile anyway. CBS still hasn't gotten back to me about turning these into a series.


  1. The opposite of "Lyle Lovett" is "short, squat faux-Texan".
  2. The opposite of "reading alone at a restaurant" is "public poolside yoga".
  3. The opposite of "twee" is "The National".
  4. The opposite of "satisfaction guaranteed" is "series finale".

This Was Said©
Perfectly sensible sentences uttered by me, now stripped of all context.

  1. Lockhart, TX is vegan kryptonite.
  2. I've eaten there literally hundreds of times and still get service that can best be described as "not impolite".
  3. Hey, I'm just living this stereotype temporarily...I know I don't belong here.
  4. It's not a temper problem. It's a temper opportunity.
  5. My Surreal-o-Meter needle just tipped over into Dali.

Classic Grift
A public service to raise awareness of notable cons, flimflams, swindles, and cheats.

  1. Two Lurlenes Too Many
  2. The Aforementioned Afro-mention
  3. Door-to-Door Popsicle Repairman
  4. Deluxe All's-Well-that-Ends-Well Shuffle

Roku Picks of the Week

Worthwhile viewing available instantly on Netflix.

Another smart sci-fi movie, shot for relatively little money. I think it stumbles a little toward the end, but worth watching.

Pixar always has a few movies available for instant viewing. The best execution of talking dogs in any movie, ever.
