Channeling Larry King, I don't know why

Item! Tom Skerritt should be making more movies.

There are few positions I enjoy more than sitting.

I know this will make me unpopular, but flip-flops are insufficient footwear.

Ignore your lumbar region at your own peril, gang.

Don't be a goof! Patronize your local library.

What's with clogging?

There are few living actors who smell better than Joel Grey.

I don't care what anyone says: for me, rye bread is the choice of kings.

You can argue all you want that gnomes don't dwell beneath my floorboards, but I'll wait to hear from the experts, thank you.

Flip flops ARE horrible. No arch support, most of them leave burns between your toes, and if they get caught on anything, you can hurt your feet.

I used to LOVE Tom Skerritt. LOVE.

Then he made Poison Ivy.

I've never been able to get that scene of him bending a pubescent Drew Barrmore over a piano. It ruined him for life. Sweet lovable Tom Skerritt became dirty old man Skerritt for all of eternity with that movie.

It's a shame.

FLIP-FLOPS - I agree completely.

I hate them. I hate seeing people wearing them who are not at the beach. I work near a University and they are all over campus. It makes my back hurt just seeing the students walk around in those. They wear them in summer, fall, winter and spring. I want to shout at them, but I don't want to be taken "away" for a "rest."

I, too, adore proselytizing about the overuse of flip-flops. Between the pool and the shower? Great. Padding across hot asphalt on a summer's day? Fine. But paired with a sundress whilst traipsing through the filth of Manhattan sidewalks? GROSS.

Just try washing your feet after a day of wearing flip-flops, and see if you don't agree.

Re Skerrit, sitting and the superiority of rye: couldn't agree more. Thanks for another great post, Alice!

I have patronized my local library for the past 12 years. However, I just discovered the Reserve feature on their website last week and ordered up a whole bunch of books that weren't available at the branch closest to my house. I thought they would kind of trickle in, like two or three at a time, but they didn't. Now I have 14 books to read in the next 14 days. I am a goof.
