... you can pour yourself a big cup of reflection.

I could never be a cameraman on American Idol. How intrusive they are!

Still, I do guess that the failures knew what they were getting into.

What to add to our cup of reflection - honey, lemon, or milk?

"...you can pour yourself a big cup of reflection."

I was just about to say, "After YOU, my dear."

But then? I had another thought, and somehow, got sidetracked...

Sorry, Althouse, you were saying?

All I could think of was: "Who made the USA into a Pinata?" Then, the next thought was: "Why?"

Well?

At Tea Parties we don't drink the government's tea. We do revolting things to it. But that sure is a purty pot.

You can reflect as long as you don't meditate.

Medication, not meditation! :)

Looking at that Teapot i thought of the tea party of course but I also (almost at the same time) thought of the Teapot Dome Scandal US History 101 and my first history professor in his leisure suit.

It has a ring to it - Teapot Dome.. Tic-tac-toe.

I'm still reflecting on the Gottlieb thread. Like you, I took a look at the Katz website. Oy.

We used to watch film of news events of that week on fridays I think it was.
It was like news reels but current.. part of the reason why politics holds my interest is suppose.

I used to know all of the names of Reagan's cabinet.

Oops. Spaced the link.

If they ever do a movie about the US men's snowboarding team, Sean Penn is going to have to play everybody, dude.

MadisonMan, I thought you didn't have a TV! And now you're watching Idol!!

What changed your mind?

knox said...

Like you, I took a look at the Katz website.

OK, out of curiosity, I just went back to look at it. Oy indeed. What a racket.

I love art museum gift shops.

Does the teapot whistle?

Penny said...

"What a racket."

Indeed, knox.

So what do you say to those not playing "net" games?

Winter olympians, for example?

Backyard luge.

I don't like art teapots--they don't work as well as the traditional teapots--the Brown Betty.

Ignorance is Bliss said...

After 7 months of un, I am again employed.

I guess I won't be making middle-of-the-day comments anymore.

rhhardin said...

Teabag + microwave works best of all.

MadisonMan said...

We have a TV down in the cold dark basement. Idol is one show I will occasionally watch.

I watch Glee, too, but on DVD. My daughter is a big fan and she won't let me watch it in real time.

MadisonMan said...

Oh, and I watched Antiques Roadshow this week too -- because it's the Madison show. I really liked the reaction of the lady who had the Mike Royko/Sinatra letter.

Madison Man watch TLC's "What Not to Wear" this Friday at 9pm as Lee Lee's Valise will be on. With Gina from St. Louis a professor who does not know how to dress. (I swear that is true, I am not making that up)
