Let's start off with some local news.

So as I sit there in the local coffee shop that isn't Starbucks, all these trucks and trailers start setting up in the parking lot. I notice all the doors have a sign that reads "World's Greatest Dad".

Turns out this movie stars Robin Williams. And guess who decides to get themselves a little sugar free latte? That's right. Mr. Williams.

So we start some small talk and I mention my blog. I casually ask Robin if I can interview him for a few minutes.
Surprisingly, he says yes.

The following is a transcript of said interview:

Me: Good morning Mr. Williams

RW: Please call me Robin, just don't call me at home

Me: OK, Robin. You're in town to shoot a new movie titled "World's Greatest Dad"

RW: Yes

Me: Is it seriously directed by Bobcat Goldthwait?

RW: Yes

Me: Odd. You did a little movie titled "Bicentennial Man" and another called "RV"

RW: Yes

Me: Those movies sucked

RW: Thank you

Me: For a while there you were taking more unusual roles such as in "One Hour Photo" and "Insomnia". Then lately you've been making crap. How come?

RW: I don't know

Me: Well put sir

RW: (silent)

Me: OK then. Buy me a bagel?


So there you have it!
Exclusive interview with Robin Williams!

Here's a bit of Mr. Williams' oscar winning role:

Today's birthday:
Bill Berry!

You'd think the guy would do something about the eyebrow.
He's one step away from being Bert.


Let's look at a piece of his work:

Sorry. Technical glitch. We have our IT department working on it right now.

We're also experiencing technical difficulties in today's heartfelt quote.

We hope to get everything back and running by Friday Morning.

I'm beginning to think this daily/weekly/monthly thing never ends.....
Seems like every week I'm writing about the same days over and over.
Kinda like Groundhog Day!


Let's go right into today's Iconic birthday....
Emile Bronte!

Perhaps you've heard of a certain lady named Catherine and a certain gentleman named Heathcliff?

If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger: I should not seem a part of it.

So in honor of Miss Bronte, Miss Oberon and Mr. Olivier, let's take a look at love in words....

Hearts are not had as a gift, But hearts are earned.
--William Butler Yeats

The saddest thing in the world, is loving someone who used to love you.

There is a time for departure even when there's no certain place to go.
--Tennessee Williams

It is better to have loved and lost than never to have lost at all.
--Samuel Butler

How could an Angel break my heart? Why didn’t he catch my falling star? I wish I didn’t wish so hard. Maybe I wished our love apart.
--Toni Braxton

Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love.
--Charlie Brown

Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go.
--Herman Hesse

Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of withering, of tarnishing.
--Anais Nin

OK then. Let's see if we can get any kind of visual.....

I think that's pretty damn close.

Sure glad today wasn't Edgar Allen Poe's birthday!

Top 5 different names for Tuesday:

5. Blahday

4. Worthlessday

3. Atleastit'sbetterthanMondayday

2. Tacotuesday

And the number one different name for Tuesday:
1. IsitFridayyetday

And you have to ask yourself, "what would an office chicken do?"

Do chickens drink?

I know roosters do but not sure about chickens.
Have you ever seen a drunk chicken?
We'll have to research that and post the results at another time.
And where would a rooster get a tattoo?

I've seen a drunk rooster before and it ain't pretty.

My advice: If you see a rooster in a bar, leave immediately.

Unless you're a member of Fight Club

Which you shouldn't even be talking about anyway.

Let's move away from the violence and on to today's Iconic birthday:

Wil Wheaton!

Here's a scene from one of his most famous roles:

Sorry if that grossed you out. Guess I should have warned you first.

Maybe this'll take your mind off it:

A chicken eating a grape

I didn't know chickens ate grapes. Looks like we're covered for today's schoolin'.

So let's end with today's quote:

All I know of love is that love is all there is.

That should arm us with the ammunition needed to make it through another day.

We're at Monday. How does this seem to happen every week?
And because I was up too late last night, I'm going to let Nico take over today's blog.
So.....Take it away Nico!

Let's take a look at some of the historical events that took place on this date.

In 1976, John Lennon finally had his request for permanent residency in the United States approved. Prior to this there was a long standing struggle between Lennon and the U.S. Government.

In 1984, Pete Rose passed Ty Co



I think we're due for a math lesson and this gives us an opportune time.

Excellent. We didn't even need to bring fractions into the equation.

Is it just me or does that guy look like both Lemmy from Motorhead and that convict guy in Con Air?

If you don't know who Lemmy and/or Motorhead are, then you should be ashamed of yourself.
Let me school you....

I didn't say you had to like them, you just need to know who they are.

Moving on to today's Iconic birthday...
Norman Lear!

Here are some of Norman's contributions to society:

TRIVIA: Roxie Roker who played Helen Willis in The Jeffersons is the mother of Lenny Kravitz.

Wow we've learned a lot today. You'd think it was Monday!!
We better close shop before the whole day is ruined by productivity.

Today's quote:

I know the night is not the same as the day: that all things are different, that the things of the night cannot be explained in the day, because they do not then exist, and the night can be a dreadful time for lonely people once their loneliness has started.

So hold on to something warm and familiar and we'll meet again in the new day.

Welcome to the weekend!
Enjoy this hilarious comic

Well that was a little too abstract for me.
I'm gonna have a little talk to the guy that sold it to me. He guaranteed a laugh.

Now this is really weird. I'm online shopping for a book and notice something's a bit different.....I guess it's truth in advertising?

Anyway, I did order some books written by monkeys.


Today's Iconic birthday.....
Jeremy Piven!

That's right. I chose Mr. Piven despite the fact that true fans know about his shifting hairline throughout the years.

And how many remember Jeremy from this little stint?

Let's get outta here and take this quote with us...

We don't see things as they are, we see things as we are.
--Anais Nin

You can be Henry Miller and I'll be Anais Nin
Except this time it will be even better
we'll stay together in the end
--Jewel Kilcher

You know how to tell you're getting old?
When you don't know the guy that's hosting the MTV Video Music Awards.

Granted, I recognized him once I opened the article as I've seen him on talk shows and the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall
BUT still.....I didn't know his name.
I guess it's time to put the wallet chain, crocs and pooka shells away and browse the realty ads for condos in Florida.

Now I don't know about you, but this comic confuses me.

Either this lady bought the parakeet this way, in which case she should have found out before leaving the store, OR she dressed the parakeet herself.
But the parakeet DOES have facial hair. I wonder if she would glue fake hair on a bird?
If not, I think we have our answer. But really the only sign of it being male is the facial hair. The clothing looks completely feminine. Unless it's a cross dressing bird. Then we have a whole other issue to deal with.


Today's Iconic birthday
Walter Payton!


And an awesome human being.

POP QUIZ! thought 'cause it's Friday you could coast....WRONG!
Pencils out. Begin.

Time's up!
Everyone pass your quiz to the front of wherever you are.
FYI, there will be NO grading curve.

And if you feel you didn't do well on the quiz......

Time's up! Pencils down!

Let's see how you did:

You really need to be more aware of your surroundings.

That concludes today's schoolin'.
Now try to stay out of trouble this weekend, OK? We all remember the incident from last week...

Yeah. Not pretty.

I leave you with today's quote:

Love doesn't make the world go 'round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.
--Franklin P. Jones

And top it off with a little James Taylor.

Isn't it a lovely ride
Sliding down
Gliding down
Try not to try too hard
Its just a lovely ride

Curl up next to that tonight.
