Well, well, well, we hired a new President. There are a lot of things Boozie dabbles in, but politics isn’t one of them, so don’t stop reading now. This past week or so has been rough, not because of who was elected but because of all the crazies out there. I love Facebook but had to stay away from all the post about this year’s election. It was so bad it drove me to drinking … well, drinking more than usual (during the week) …
If it continues I’m going to have to make a game out of it, take a shot for every post that has anything to do with the 2016 election. Maybe half a shot, because if I take full ones I might wind up dead, or worse, in the comment section of some post. Take it from Boozie, Facebook and alcohol don’t mix well. Next thing you know you have commented on a picture of some girl you went to high school with that her baby isn’t even that cute.
Moving on now to the reason you’re here, the gossip …
Peanuts, get your peanuts
As if Mobile didn’t have enough nuts already, Mr. Peanut himself came to town. The big “nutmobile” was spotted all over town. From the Pecan Festival (duh, he was at a nut festival) to LoDA ArtWalk to Wal-Mart, he was seen around town. The Nutmobile even made an unscheduled stop at Cream and Sugar. If Boozie had to guess it was to try out a cake ball, but Cream and Sugar had some fun with the Nutmobile being parked outside, saying, “You never know what kind of nut you will bump into at Cream and Sugar …”
Unfortunately, there is no word whether Mr. Peanut was a-salted by A&M Peanuts shop during LoDa ArtWalk. Just a joke, butter nut spread any rumors …
Lights, camera, action
“USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage” was released, very fittingly, on Veterans Day. Wondering what I’m talking about? Remember awhile back when Nicolas Cage was in town shooting a movie? Well, it’s finally out!
This past Saturday night the Saenger Theatre had a special showing of the movie for families of the crew of the USS Indianapolis, and it was also open to the public. And boy, did people show up to catch the movie that was filmed almost completely in Alabama! I just hope the shark attack scenes were shot elsewhere.
If you missed the showing, you can catch it on Amazon and iTunes.
Bad a** drawings
I know I said I wasn’t going to talk about politics, but I’ve gotta tell y’all about this. Sometime last week someone took their art skills, if you will, to the street. There were at least two images spray-painted around town that Boozie heard about. The first one was on the Blue Bird Hardware store location; that sad little kid next to the rainbow was joined by an image of Donald Trump pooping out swastikas. Ouch.
The other image was on the underpass at Springhill Avenue and Interstate 65. We will just leave it at that, Trump’s pants were down again … But anyway, whoever was the mastermind of these images must have never seen a butt before because in both images Donald has a big ole bubble butt. His butt is like a semicircle off the pre-existing butt. We will just leave at, the artist is bad at a** drawings.
Well, kids, that’s all I’ve got this week. Just remember, whether rain or shine, dramatic or scandalous, or just some plain ol’ peanuts lovin’, I will be there. Ciao!
