But not just ANY shampoo. Oh no. This right here is, hands-down, the BEST, nicest-smelling, cheapest damn shampoo I have ever encountered. And that includes my years working at Sebastian International when I enjoyed a 90% discount on their products.
Get thee to a store and procure some.

Anyhoo, we started with dinner in Burbank.
Our performance featured John O'Hurley of Seinfeld fame. I'm sorry to say he was a little disappointing -- seemed to be kinda "phonin' it in". But the rest of the cast was good, the show was fun, and, perhaps most importantly, The Boy LOVED it.
Now -- go away, or I will taunt you a second time!

This is a wonderful old place, consisting of several hangars full of old planes, mostly warbirds. Many are being worked on at any given moment; the smell of oil and/or jet fuel hangs in the air (especially on a 100-degree day, as it was during our visit). There are lots of helpful volunteer docents walking around, eager to share their knowledge of the planes with you (but not annoyingly so).
In the front of the museum (but not pictured here -- DUH, Katerz!) is an old Flying Fortress (B-17 bomber) they're working on restoring. So, so, SO awesome!
I worry what will happen to places like this when all the WWII vets have gone to that great mess hall in the sky...

Now, the great LOST_SKELETON, the star of several major motion pictures, is not only FOLLOWING me on Twitter, but He is recommending me as a #followfriday.
I am also now being followed by the lovely RiffTrax spouse and Minnesotan Virginia Corbett, and the delightful blogger Cole Stratton.
I hope I am able to suitably entertain (or, simply, not annoy) these new Tweeps!

Earlier this week, Bill Corbett tweeted at me. Now, Larry Blamire.
I dunno how much more of this my heart can take, People.
Tip tip tip tip tip tip tip!
Now, I sleep.

Not only can I rap with my peeps there, but I can watch amusing convos unfold betwixt people like Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett, and Kevin Murphy; Rainn Wilson and Mindy Kaling; and Grant Imahara and Adam Savage. Oh, and Mrs. Yankovic posts twitpix of the family activities. And Al's shoes.

I can't say it often enough... THANK YOU, GINA LEE!!!
A mocha here, a latte there... maybe a Frappuccino® on a hot day.
Some days, you're just DRAGGIN'. You consider The Big Daddy, The Path From Which There Is No Return, The Walk On The Wild Side: the Quad Shot. But, you resist.
Then one morning, there you are, and the words are coming out of your mouth before you can even stop them. "Make it a quad. WITH whip." Your trusty barista Alison gets that look in her eye, that look that sez, "Ahhhh, yes. I've seen THIS before." Is there a tinge of sadness in Alison's eyes as she watches you slide down that slippery slope? Or was it a kind of twisted satisfaction, seeing you come over to the dark side, where she herself dwells?
See ya tomorrow, Alison! w00t! BWAHAHAHAAHHAHAHA!
