Too Much Time On My Hands

Since the Phillies lost on Wednesday night to the Nationals in rather uninspiring fashion, I didn’t really feel moved to write about it yesterday. Yesterday was also an off day, so I had plenty of free time to let my mind wander.

Today’s blog is a culmination of that wandering.

Some of you out there may watch “Desperate Housewives.” As I watched the most recent episode this past Sunday, I was struck by the similarities in hairstyle between the character Orson Hodge (played by Kyle McLachlan) and our own Phillie, Cole Hamels. See for yourself:

They’re even dressed similarly, with sport coat and open collared shirt! Are they both reading the same men’s fashion magazines? Do they share a stylist? Just something to mull over…

Recalling a mention of oddly shaped heads in one of Jane’s recent She-Fan entries, my mind next wandered to the pairing of Placido Polanco and Phil Collins:

I can’t decide which produce item they more closely resemble. Is it:

 

cantaloupe.jpgthe cantaloupe?

 

watermelon.jpgthe watermelon?

 

pumpkin.jpgor the pumpkin?

For what it’s worth, the first two are members of the melon family, while the pumpkin is a gourd.

Also for what it’s worth, the title of today’s entry is also the title of a really bad Styx song from the 1981 album “Paradise Theatre”, which I hesitate to admit I actually owned way back in high school. My taste in music was really bad then.

Tonight, the Phillies take on the Mets at Citizen’s Bank Park. C’mon guys, let’s kick some Met butt! Make me a happy girl!

Too much time on our hands is a dangerous, dangerous thing! I was a devoted “Desperate Housewives” watcher until the last hiatus. I haven’t watched since. I know Edie was killed off, but did they ever catch her crazy husband?

I still like Styx, she says, hiding in the back of the room with her hand raised slightly. :-)

LMAO @ the comparison of Polanco’s and Collins’ heads! And I remember that Stix song…I liked it back when it came out. LOL

Jane – Evil Dave is still on the loose, now realizing he needs to exact his revenge on Susan, not Mike.
Jenn – Maybe not. It’s still raining – yuck!
Julia – not to worry, I won’t think less of you. Probably shouldn’t admit this, but I still listen to Kiss.
Shelley – I liked it then too. Which produce item gets your vote?
