I was reading a philanthropy newsletter when I ran across this little item. The Chili’s Grill & Bar restaurant chain pledged $50 million, payable over 10 years, to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to name the new state-of-the-art building that will house the Department of Radiological Sciences. So, are we to assume that when people pull up to this hospital to drop off their elderly father for an MRI, they are dropping him off at the Chili’s Grill & Bar Department of Radiological Sciences? Or maybe the Baby Back Ribs Department of Radiological Sciences? The Bloomin’ Onion Department of Radiological Sciences? Doesn’t really instill the confidence you desire in your health care provider. But bully for Chili’s for being so generous.
You know what drives me crazy? It’s when people are talking? And they end each sentence like it’s a question? Even when it’s not? Argh?
Clerks II is coming out soon. Or maybe it’s already in theaters. I have mixed feelings about it. I do look forward to seeing Jay do a send up of the killer tranny’s tucked-in dance for the video camera from Silence of the Lambs. Otherwise, I’m wary.
At the wedding shower this past weekend, we each had to cross-stitch a panel that will eventually be incorporated into a quilt. While doing the cross-stitch, which was super easy by the way, I decided to make a panel for myself. A sampler, if you will. It will say “Shit Happens” and will be placed in a frame to hang on the wall. Classy, huh?
