Beige I Guess

My wife was listing items to sell on ebay the other day and she asks me:

Her: "What color would you say this shirt is?  Beige, Camel, or Taupe?"
   (She tossed it to me and I turned it over in my hand a few times to look at it.)
Me:  "Um . . .  Uh . . . Beige, I guess."
Her: "Hmm. . . I think I'll go with Wheat."

. . .

I love my wife.  :)

Red Widow

There is a new series coming up on ABC called Red Widow:

It sounds interesting enough.  From what I understand a mob man dies and his wife decides to carry on his work to protect their family.  I could see that being worth watching.  And it is brought to us by the screenwriter of the Twilight Saga!!!!

. . . wait, what?

The worst part about the Twilight movies was the screenplay!  Why would you pitch that as the selling point?!  Have they seen those films? 

I've seen most of the actors in the twilight movies in other movies and they're really not too bad.  But the reason Twilight was so awful was all of the awkward dialogue.  On a scale of 1 to 10, my interest in Red Widow just went from about a 6 to a 1 (which might as well be a 0).  Maybe next time, ABC . . . maybe next time.

How Much Does It Cost

Every once in a while, I begin typing a search in Google and I can't help but laugh what the most popular searches are that start with the same words I'm using.  I'm sure you've seen this before.  I was looking up the cost of a part to repair my car and came across this:

The first one is the best.  How much does it cost to be batman?  Ha!  This implies that more people are searching for how much it costs to be batman than are searching for how much is costs to have a baby, mail a letter, build a house, and get a passport.  (And more people are wondering about Batman than Iron Man.)

So I had to look this up.  Apparently, a rough estimate is something to the tune of $682,451,350.  But if you're Bruce Wayne, whose wealth is fictionally estimated to be around $6.9 Billion, then you've got a few hundred million to throw around.  :)

Try starting to type some things in Google and see what suggestions you come up with.  Let me know if you've got any good ones!

The brief conversation that interrupted dinner last night:

Eva:  "Daddy, look, a fly!"
Me:  "I see.  That's actually a moth."  (A moth was flying around the ceiling.  Must have come inside when I did.)
Eva:  "No, it's a fly!"
Me:  "I know it looks like a fly, but it's bigger. . . and brown.  It's a moth."
Eva:  "Um..."  (The moth fluttered again.)  "Look, the fly!"
Me:  "I know, but..." *Sigh* "Well, it flies, anyway."
