Sometimes thats all you have when your down to nothing.
Zombie Nation has got to be the best WORST zombie film ever!!!! Thats all I'm saying.
I was making a purchase today in which I was paying with cash. I thought I had the exact change when I realized I had grabbed a nickle instead of a dime. I said 'close but no cigar' and the cashier laughed and said, "I wonder what that means. I say it but have no idea and it makes no sense." So for those of you who might wonder about the origins of this saying and even if you don't here goes: " It is a widely used saying to signal a near miss. To fall just short of a successful outcome and get nothing for your efforts. This phrase and its varient 'nice try but no cigar' are of US origin and date from the mid-20th century. Carnival/fairground stalls gave out cigars as prizes and this is the most likely source although there is no definitive evidence to prove it. It first appeared in print 1935 in the script of the film version Annie Oakley "Close Colonel but no cigar".
So there you have it (at least to the best of my knowledge)". Learn something new everyday.
In a couple days I'll be hitting the road as a support vehicle for my son and his buddy as they head back to NC. After a day or so I'll journey back home. The return trip will be the first time I have ever made an extended trip entirely alone. Thats right. I'm ridin solo. Who knows what the highways and byways will bring .
Each of us has our own unique flaws. But it is the cracks and flaws in us that makes our lives together that much more interesting and rewarding. You just have to take each person as they are and look for the good in them.
I haven't been to the ocean in 4 yrs! I think I may be drying up living in suburbia.
For those who hunger and thirst for justice - this world is not a comfortable place.
