When you die...

by Nathan Stout (of AccordingToWhim.com)

Now that I have your attention...
In our society we often say things like when I get to heaven they are going to have never ending buffets of my favorite foods/drinks/etc... well for me I need a Coke Freestyle machine.

Not any Freestyle machine. Almost ALL Freestyle machines SUCK. When you get your Coke, you get Coke with a hint of whatever was dispensed a moment before. Here's a hint, when you have a self-server Freestyle machine, let it run a for a second before your pour your own drink (you'll thank me).

Anyway, this Heavenly Freestyle will every soda, never give you hints of any previously dispensed soda. Of all the vices of my life soda is the one I can't quit. Soda puts a smile on my face every time.

Along with the soda I politely request Jet's Pizza, Chicken Tikka Marsala, Steak, and a Godiva store for good measure.

Don't forget something to watch while I am eating in a Drive-In Movie theater settings with access to every movie ever made.

Thank you.

October is here! Yay.

by Nathan Stout (of AccordingToWhim.com)

It's been a busy year and we are already at the 10th month. It's one of my favorite months! When we lived in the country I would always go on how I can't wait to live in the city so I can decorate for Halloween. We finally moved back and I instantly backtracked on my Halloween wish. I hate giving candy to kids. I like decorating but not handing out candy. I want to decorate then pull it all down the day before Halloween. In the neighborhood I live people come by the TRUCKLOAD, dumping their ungrateful pre-teens/teens to bother you.

I enjoying taking my kid to Home Depot/Lowes/Walmart to see the Halloween yard blow up decorations. She is mildly spooked by it all but seems to enjoy it. I also enjoy taking her trick or treating at events but not door to door. I guess it all boils down to the fact that I am anti-social or something.

What adds to my enjoyment of the months is the fall weather/feel of the changing season. If Halloween was in Summer, I don't think I'd like it so much.

Tuesday Junk

by Nathan Stout (of AccordingToWhim.com)

Been a while since I posted last so here are some random thoughts for you look at (chewing gum for the eyes!).

  • I got sick the last day we were at Disneyland (November 7th) and have been sick for 2 months now. Not just lightly sick either, full blown snot, etc... then I got the flu a couple of weeks ago. Been a sucky couple of months. It's starting to clear tho...
  • Funny things my 2 1/2 year old says: 
    • "Get out the carpet" (when I'm sitting on the floor). 
    • "Get out the couch" (when I'm sitting on the couch). 
    • "Go feep" (when pretending to sleep).
  • I just watched an old anime called Castle of Cagliostro . Man I love old anime. It just satisfies so much more than current stuff.
  • I'm getting Long Distance Blues and want to be back in the city so I can see the few friends I have more regularly.
  • My doc has me on 15 supplements... I better live forever now (or something)...
  • I was the guinea pig for a new MRI test at work a couple of weeks ago and they needed to shoot me with contrast and they stuck me 6 times and could not get a vein.... 6 times! They even used a vein finder and they couldn't do it!
