Bullet Sunday 67

Posted on Sunday, February 3rd, 2008

Dave!Gee... what to do with a four hour layover in New Jersey? Guess it must be time for Bullet Sunday!

• Recovery. I will admit to not feeling my best this morning after my drunken exploits yesterday. My head is fine, but my stomach feels as if it could take revenge at any moment... leaping out my throat and strangling me with my esophagus. I'm blaming the corn pizza. Or maybe the guy sitting across from me this morning at the Köln-Bonn Airport picking his nose. And not just a quick flick to remove a stray booger either... this classy bastard was really digging in there. I was increasingly concerned that he would hit brain and lobotomize himself. And when I say "concerned" I actually mean "hopeful." Talk about a stomach-turning sight.

• Approval. Disapproving Man turned out to be more popular than I am on my own blog, so I thought I'd tell the whole story. My hotel is just off a roundabout (or "rotary" to those of you reading in the US Northeast), which means the crosswalk I use several times a day is recessed. So when I cross it, I'm not crossing to a corner, but directly into a hair salon's advertising board with Disapproving Man on it...

Disapproving Man

This means I pass that evil bitch with his condescending smirk both coming (where he watches me the entire way I'm crossing the street) and going...

Disapproving Man

I wonder if the poor bastard realized he'd be abused like this when he was asked to model for professionally disheveled hair? I'm guessing no...

Disapproving Man

• MottoSchal. I am so totally wearing my scarf from the Kölner Karneval right now, and am quite the sexy bitch! Everybody is totally noticing my hotness as they walk by, and I owe it all to Emma.

• Revision. Well, they're either admiring my hotness or wondering why a grown man is wearing a clown scarf... it's hard to tell. I'm banking on the former, because the raw sexiness of my scarf-wearing self is too much for even me to take. This morning I had to finally had remove it while brushing my teeth (YES! I SLEPT IN IT!!) because I was getting myself all excited just looking at me. I think between my Kölner Karneval scarf and my Batman Chuck Taylor sneakers, I'm pretty much going to be an unstoppable man-whore with the ladies from here on out.

• Revision Revision. See, I told you I wasn't feeling well.

• Россия. As I added Warsaw to my Travel Map, I longingly looked over at Moscow and started wondering how difficult it is to get a tourist visa. Russian history absolutely fascinates me, and visiting Moscow and St. Petersburg would be a dream come true. From talking to people who have been there, the word that keeps popping up is "expensive." Apparently the hotels are among the most pricey in the world, and even a simple 5-day Russian tour can cost thousands of dollars. Still, when I go to Flickr and do a search for "Moscow" and see the stunning images that pop up (like the magnificent shot of St. Basil's Cathedral by Ferenc Koltai below), I really, really want to go. Guess I better start saving my pennies rubles...

St. Basil's Cathedral

• Beastly. Just for fun, I sometimes go to my blog stats and click on a few of the sites linking to me so I can see what's happening there. The first one I clicked to was a blog called "Bête de Jour" which caught my attention because I knew that "bête" is French for "beast." Once I got there I saw that the author links to me in their blogroll, titled "People who blog better than me." My first reaction was to think "that's probably true"... not because my ego is so huge (though evidence dictates otherwise)... but because so many of the random blogs I come across are total crap.

Then I started reading it. And could not stop.

By the time I got to the entry entitled "Air Rage," I realized that the very idea of me blogging better than this guy is positively laughable. I'm simply not this clever or smart. La Bête just started writing in December, so click here to read from the beginning and then click on the "Newer Post" links hidden at the bottom of each entry to keep going. You're welcome!

And that's a wrap! I'd add more bullets, but some lovely ladies across the airport are admiring my scarf, so I think it's only fair that I go share a taste of Dave with them.

Or find out that they're making fun of me so I can go to the bathroom and cry. One of those two things.

    You know, I’m gonna actually miss that “disapproving guy.” He kinda grows on you.

    Welcome back, Dave. 🙂

  2. Hilly says:

    Are we going to have to start calling you LL Cool Dave?

  3. Man, I’m going to miss judgmental hair model dude. Maybe we should start a petition to get the salon to mail him to you at home. I’m sure that could provide you with YEARS of self abuse.

    Okay…that didn’t sound right. But you know what I mean.

    Have a safe trip, dude.

  4. Göran says:

    The clown scarf needs that pilot uniform collecting dust in your closet!

  5. Lewis says:

    You slept in it? OH my god. You’re a freak. We’re you nude otherwise? Even more freakish. And, we all know about your hotness and natural body heat and aura. It pervades you and leaks over on to us (that doesn’t sound very good, does it……or does it??). Happy travels home, my friend.

  6. kilax says:

    Ooo, Dave, go to Russia so we don’t have to pay for it but can read about it here. Ha ha!

  7. Bec says:

    Achieving Dave Hotness… that’s like waking up for you, right?!

  8. Hey, you are a hot man-whore, baby! And Disapproving Man should thank you for all the publicity you’re giving him!

  9. kapgar says:

    You’re not the only one who wants to visit Russia. I’ve longed to do this since watching Red Heat back in the 80s. While the scenes with Moscow were brief, I was enthralled. It was one of the first American movies to be allowed to shoot in Russia, as I recall.

  10. Avitable says:

    You have the Batman Chuck Taylors? The ones with the Jim Lee sketch? How did I not know that?

  11. Batman + Chucks = Awesome

  12. suburbanhen says:

    Dave, THANK YOU for the Bete de Jour link.

    Thank you thank you thank you.
