Enjoy the rest of your life … cereal!

Janet and I were having a nice anniversary evening doing Old Couple things like watching The Book of Eli when it became clear that Jamie was sick.  He didn’t sleep well, nor did we, and things occasionally got messy.  He’s home with us now, and we’re sitting around watching Animal Planet.  Right now it’s a series of abandoned and/or abused pets.

Sick kids—it’s just like old times!  We feel like young marrieds again.

Actually, Jamie hardly ever gets sick.  Send him good wishes, and let’s hope he keeps down that ginger ale!

So, no post-anniversary blogging.  I just want to say two brief followup things about Mad Men and Martin Peretz.  One, I bought Life cereal for the first time last week.  It really is very tasty!  I plan to eat it by the bowlful.  Two, you’ve probably seen this one already, but I have to say that Ta-Nehisi Coates is quite right to point out that Andrew Sullivan’s “Marty Peretz was a great boss who totally let me use The New Republic to promote the idea that black people are inferior” is not really a ringing endorsement of Peretz’s intellectual courage.  Defending Peretz from charges of bigotry:  ur doin it wrong.  But you do have to admire Andy’s timing.

And happy birthday to me mum, who turns 75 today.  Very busy month, September.

  1. Belated happy anniversary to you and Janet, happy birthday to your mother, and may Jamie get well soon. If he runs out of Animal Planet, there’s always the BBC Animal Camera videos on Youtube, such as:

  2. "He likes it!  Hey Mikey!” I always liked that commercial.  Sorry to hear that Jamie is under the weather.  Here’s to a quick recovery and a return to blissful anniversary stuff.

  3. Apparently Harvard was at least slightly embarrassed in their choosing to honor Marty and his few hundred thousand dollars; they canceled his speaking engagement. Of course, they are keeping the money and still giving him some celebratory honors.

    A happy birthday to your mum, let Jamie eat some Life for strength when he is ready to keep it down, and blessings for starting another year off through family togetherness.

  6. Cinnamon Life is an abomination. 

    Life is one of the only non-heavyweight cereals from my childhood that still exists.  You know the non-sugary ones with which some of our parents limited our breakfast repertoire?

    Team flakes anyone?  Kix before they found a way to sweeten in with fruit juice?  Good times.

    Posted by Pinko Punko  on  09/23  at  02:12 AM
  7. Of course there is a Facebook group.  I think the “put fire ants in Marty Peretz’s Team flakes” is more popular.

  10. #6 Life and (regular--then the only kind)Cheerios! It was a big day in our house when we got sliced bananas on top, and the cheerios-type cereal wasn’t the competitor, OKs, which, though they featured Yogi Bear on the box were def not better than the av-er-age cereal, going mushy in record time.

  11. OT a bit, but am wondering if you are also getting to celebrate your anniversary week by fighting off hordes of brown marmorated stink bugs like we are here in P’burgh. (They were first found in the US in Allentown, PA so I suspect they would get to State College on their way over here--unless they were stymied by the mountain barriers.) Have had a few in years past, but we’ve had literally hundreds inside the house. I suspect other Mid-Atlantic located blog readers might be having the same experience.

  12. Happy (late) anniversary.  You’ve got us beat by about 6 years.

    The gluten-free mania that has gripped our household in recent months has banished Life from our cupboards.  I miss it (the cereal, that is).

  13. No stink bugs yet, here on the sunny shores of the socialist republic of Cleveland Heights. The overcast neighboring shores of the fascist republic of South Euclid, however, are infested with them.  Being chronically unemployed has a few dubious advantages.

  14. Brown marmorated stink bugs!  So that’s what they’re called.  Our doors and windows are covered with dozens of ‘em.  Clearly, they agree with JP that the hills surrounding State College are not really “mountains,” because they got here some time ago.

  16. Bedbugs, stinkbugs, what’s the difference.  The clear implication is that the parasites are at the gates, and radical action must be employed to eliminate them.  Our civilization depends upon it.  Homo Liberalimus employs technology to conserve and improve the conditions of human life and, as a result, the population rapidly rises beyond its sustainable limits.  At which point Homo Conservativimus employs the same technology to destroy and degrade the lives of its enemies, whom they blame for the dissolution of the social order, in order to conserve and improve the lives of themselves and their friends, and the population rapidly drops back down to its sustainable limits, until the next cycle of technological advance.  I call it the communist-fascist dialectic.

Technological advance improves the general social welfare, the population rises beyond its sustainable limits, increased competition for relatively declining resources divides the population into competing utopian camps which attempt to eliminate each other, the process of elimination, regardless of outcome, results in a population drop below its sustainable limits, survivors of the conflict combine forces to concentrate their efforts on recovery from the conflict, and so it goes…

  19. Most important thing is that while working itself you must plan about retirement, well in advance. Make sure that you are financially stable after retirement. Necessary planning should be done as to how your hard earned savings can be fully utilized. Correct financial planning will give you courage to go forward in the rest of your life.
