Ah, the end of The Ford's first 2-day weekend in nearly 5 weeks, as well as the return of his Internet connection...

Gosh, it's almost like a blog post was ordained from on high.

Today, well, today was a day of capitalism in all its forms.

1.) Tried Wendy's latest experiment in hamburgerology, the Jalapeno Cheddar Double Melt. Which also included bacon, for some reason. And pepperjack cheese. And like so many good movies, it was the bacon and the pepper jack that stole the show from the higher-billed ingredients. OK, the jalapenos deserve some Oscar buzz, but really, the cheddar was phoning it in like Marlon Brando in every movie after The Godfather.

2.) Picked up some DVD boxsets of TV shows (The Wire, The O.C., Undeclared), all mostly nerdy enough to let The Ford keep his Official Geek Card for another month. (His whole "I've never read the Lord of The Rings Trilogy" keeps him on probationary status indefinitely.)

3.) Picked up two of the three best comedies of last year (Wedding Crashers and 40-Year-Old Virgin), and almost completed the trilogy with The Aristocrats.

4.) Spent 30 minutes mulling whether one electric razor was truly worth twice the cost of another. Decided it was. Just shaved with it, and, once again, The Ford was totally right. Best. Shave. Ever. Even if it did take him 20 minutes to set the analog clock in it.

5.) Earned more Geek Points with the purchase of a classic Transformer (Bumblebee) for The Official Cubicle. Man, if Transformers had been this cool -- or this well-made -- when The Ford was first buying them, he'd never have stopped. A drastic difference from GI Joes, which have just gotten shoddier in 20 years.

6.) Bought a pack of A-frame undershirts (wifebeaters to you and The Ford, though not to Fruit of the Loom) well before realizing The Ford just looks like a shabbily attired pro wrestler in them.

7.) Luckily, The Ford backed himself up in his need for undershirts with some regular Ts. For some reason, they come in a resealable bag. Seriously. The Ford's not sure why he might ever need to reseal his T-shirts, short of demonic possession, and he's not sure he wants to be sure.

8.) Played the new Golden Tee 2007, which hit town Thursday. New game, same results for The Ford: pretty close to par, which he supposes is more than he can say for The Official Drinking Buddy. Then again, The Official Drinking Buddy is shooting from the black tees, and can putt decently to boot. The Ford'll be 10 shots behind him by this time next week.

9.) Met some ladies. They were friendly. (Far more capitalistically than The Ford would have liked.)

10.) Finished off the evening with lamb-stuffed grape leaves. And some Mountain Dew. Oh, those Greeks.

I made you blog, but I won't help you hit a curveball.

Eff you, Jo-bu. I do it myself.

Quick bat, quick bat, quick bat.
