I expected wacky neighbors as well...

Based on the comment on the last post I have decided to try to come up with a list of all the things from television shows and movies that I wish I had right now. Because I feel that it is incredibly cruel to tempt a child with these wonderous visions and then never allow him to achieve them. Anyway, feel free to add to the list in the comments.

· A train running through my living room that I could ride like in Silver Spoons.
· A car that talks with the voice of one of the doctors from St. Elsewhere.
· A robot little sister / maid.
· A video game machine that once I mastered it I would be contacted by an alien race so that I could save their civilization due to my expertise.
· A potion that once ingested would allow me to bounce around a forest.
· My own aircraft carrier (hey, you only needed one person to pilot it).
· A neverending story, which would reduce my need to go to bookstores greatly.
· An alien that would hang out in my house, crack jokes and threaten to eat the neighbor’s cat.
· An Atlasphere for use as daily transportation and / or settling blood feuds.
· Spiked shoulder pads as everyday apparel.
· A dating service in which the quality of your selection would be voted on by a random sampling of peers and if they agreed with you this would provide you with another free date.
· A high school corridor in which everyone spends time getting in and out of lockers cracking jokes.
· The ability to avoid any question by agreeing to take a physical challenge.
· Have a car where the doors are welded shut for no apparent reason.
· A suit that would provide me with superpowers except that I lost the instruction manual and now have to use trial and error to figure things out. Oh, and a cool theme song to go with said suit.
· All personal disputes to be solved via laser tag.
· The ability to escape any situation using only a paper clip, some baking soda, and a piece of lint.
· An old woman who lives in my quiet town who solves murders while no one questions why a quiet little spot seems to have an abnormally high murder rate.
· Barring a robot maid, a British butler would be a nice addition to the homestead.
· Personal wealth to be decided solely by my ability to avoid whammies.

Wednesday Night Music Club: Going back to the personal vaults at the moment for an old favorite. I’m a big John Hiatt fan and he is another one of those artists I listen to when things aren’t going as well as they could be. His music just gets me and keeps me going. Great songwriting and just some really good music.

Enough cat bashing. I want you and die Freunde to come for dinner on the 14th. You need to hang with Jack.
