Phickle Thoughts

I love when my day at work has a direct, concrete result. So frequently I spend my day making phone calls, trying to work out deals, or doing research for my cases. But sometimes, like today, I actually have a hearing, and get an actual result, and I love it.
We get to go to the Minnesota State Fair! Yay! It's been about 5 years since I've been to the state fair, and my consumption of foods on a stick has severely suffered. I plan on remedying this tragedy.
The other night I watched Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie for the first time in a long time. We netflixed it, kind of on a lark. It had been a loooong time since I'd seen it. I had forgotten how absolutely hilarious that movie (and the show too) was. If you've never seen it, or if it's been a long time, I seriously recommend watching it as soon as you're able. Plus it's nice and short, which frequently helps with comedy. Brevity is the soul of wit, and all that.
I love the frequency with which the internet has created new verbs. Like "netflixed" or "facebooked".
On Tuesday Mrs. Fickle and I visited some friends who live in Old Town Alexandria. We all went out to a Southern-style restaurant for dinner. I ordered that night's special (as I often do): stuffed ribs.

Yeah. Stuffed ribs. I... I... There are no words to describe the absolute brilliance of the dish. It was wow.
This'll be my last post for August. It puts me at 14 for the month. That is the most since March of 2006. I've been trying to post more frequently, and the efforts seem to be paying off. Now if only I could get more readers...

You said I don't know darlin' but I'm here with you
And we're coming to the chorus now!

Yes, MST3K was indeed an utterly laughtacular show/movie. And brevity is indeed the soul of wit, and tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes. Yet somehow Polonius was quite the windbag.

I miss Old Town (used to live about five minutes away). I'm jealous.

Mmm... the pork chop on a stick. I do miss the MN state fair!

Have fun in the midwest.

MST3K is indeed amazing and a MN product to boot! No wonder the humor works so well.

Stuffed ribs sound fantastic...adjectives can't really describe what I think of the idea, much as you must have a tough time conveying its taste.
