Bits and Pieces

Did you know that Hot Pockets, those tasty bundles of wonderful goodness, come in all sorts of fancy varieties? Aside from the low-fat variety (“low” being a very relative term, of course), you can also get Croissant Pockets (presumably not low in fat). In addition to the “standard” ham-and-cheese and the pizza fillings, you can get “mozzarella and meatball” and “chicken parmesan.” It’s almost too high-falutin’ to enjoy. Almost.

Norah Jones’ new CD came out today. It’s entitled “Feels Like Home” and is unlike her previous album, as far as I can tell. I’ve had it on in the background today, but I can’t really say I’ve listened to it. It’s more bluegrass-y and country than her last album. In fact, Dolly Parton makes a guest appearance. I don’t have a final report ready to go on the album yet, but Norah’s voice is really good, so I’m sure it’ll be fine.

The phrase “same as cash” intrigues me. “90 days same as cash!” “W-2 forms same as cash!” I can only assume they mean something other than “you can use items other than cash as cash.” It sounds fishy to me. I mean, “time is money,” and all, but 90 days are not the same as cash. And it’s never “Rocks and sticks same as cash!” it’s always something that costs me something. *sigh* There is no free lunch, my friends.

The original Star Wars trilogy is coming out on DVD this fall. And by “original” I mean “not really the actual original ones shown in theaters, more like the re-fiddled versions that George Lucas keeps doing things to.” It’s all good, though. They’ve been needing the DVD treatment for a while now. Of course, we’ll have to wait and see if the “5 hours of extra Jar Jar footage” is true…

Further bulletins as events warrant.
