Ears and Eyes Open

Keep your eyes and ears open, and you will be richly rewarded.

Tonight as I was leaving the supermarket, I passed the ATM near the door. It featured a HUGE sign on top of it that clearly read DO NOT USE. Standing in front of it was an idiot with his card already inside the slot, punching the keys, blissfully ignorant to the same HUGE sign that still clearly read DO NOT USE a mere six inches in front of his face. I walked out the door laughing, before the kicking and cussing began.

I turned on the radio to catch a few minutes of Loveline. The caller was a 17-year-old girl who wanted to ask Dr. Drew if the blueballs her boyfriend said he was suffering was a real disease.

I found Malingering's World through Flickr where she posts her sardonic photographic observations of Los Angeles. I'm a big fan.

Ha ha. I just love it when people are clueless. It makes me feel better about all the stupid things that I do.

Blueballs are a serious condition that affects almost every young male in this country from time to time!

I hope Dr. Drew set the girl straight and told her she needs to do what she can to relieve him of this condition!

I love it when stupid people do stupid things and I get to see it with my own eyes. It makes me feel special for being the person who DOES pay attention.

Mishy - Dr. Drew has been hosting Loveline for almost 25 years now. It's a syndicated radio call-in show where "the kids" call in and ask questions about love, sex, drugs, etc. I think he's an internal medicine and addiction medicine specialist. It started at the alt-rock station here in LA before it became syndicated, and it was on TV for awhile. It's extremely entertaining, I've been listening to it forEVER.

Ooohh... didn't he have a sidekick for a while? Some random kid? I don't get his show on any radio stations up here, but I remember seeing some of his advice columns in YM magazine back when I was a silly teenie-bopper.

Mish - Adam Corrolla was his co-host for ten years until about a year ago. He's got another cool guy now. It's always been two hosts, one "comedy" guy and the doctor. Sorry you don't get this show, it's really entertaining!
