Lobster Or Liquor

Sometimes, things just don't make sense to me. Maybe I'm an idiot. Maybe I'm naive. Maybe I don't watch enough television. Maybe. Maybe. Maybe.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how ridiculous it is that Donte Stallworth can drunkenly drive a car while being about double the legal limit, kill someone and only get 30 days in jail. I mean, it seems to me, like he should have gotten at least 31 days.

But, seriously, think about. Thirty days in jail for killing someone. Now here's a story about a Jersey guy who stole 91 lobster tails. Well, he just got four years in jail! Think about that. Let it set in. Four years for stealing some lobster. I mean, really?

And the biggest crime of it all? The story says the lobster tails were destroyed. Nobody ate them. Give them to me! I'll eat each and every one. Please. I will. I can do it. My stomach can handle it.

So what else is new? Well, I'm not sure anyone wants to see it, but Sandra Bullock claims she will strip for money. With that in mind, I would like to announce on this here blog that I, Patrick Richard Ferrucci, will also strip for money. You want to give me a few quarters, the pants are coming off. Whether you like it or not.

Tonight over at Cafe Nine is Dave Alvin and the Guilty Women. This is a show you probably want to check out. It'll be a good one. I, though, will be at Branford's Cue and Brew, to play in a setback tournament with my boss. Wish us luck.

Oh, also, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" will be screened at Criterion at midnight tonight, if that's your thing. My friend Susannah recently said this to me, "Harry Potter fans, they like everything." Now, since I'm not a Harry Potter fan, I wouldn't know. But I trust Susannah, even though she's the biggest 98 Degrees in "the whole world."

I'll leave you with a live performance of a song (from an album) that I'll write more about tomorrow. I don't know why, but I've been listening Ken Stringfellow's 2001 record "Touched" a ton again. It just came up on my iPod and I haven't stopped in a couple days.
