Brenternet (The World as seen by Brent Moore)

Trying to appeal to the highest common denominator. I can't give you 110% effort, but I will give you 107.4% effort. If you're a spammer and leave me a comment, I will make fun of you. I use twice as many semicolons compared to most other bloggers

Brent thru the ages

I succumbed to peer pressure and made some pictures at YearbookYourself.com. When you upload a pic of yourself, you can see what you would have looked like in a yearbook from the 50's, 60's, 70's etc...

These are the shocking results, not for the faint of heart. The years selected are 1952, 1976, 1990 and 1996.

Recently, I was at the dollar store and I saw some handpainted porcelain ducks. It said it was part of their "Collectible" series. Their other series must be "Worthless crap that takes up space on your shelves."

Here's an ad I saw on MySpace recently:



So, let me get this strait. If I choose to not vote for Obama in 2008, (and then enroll in Netflix or the University of Phoenix, because participation is required) I can have an Obama for President 2008 T-Shirt!

I don't think I get my sense of humor from my mom. She really doesn't show it off very often. However, when she does, it catches me off guard.

Usually everytime I see her, she has a bag of important papers and coupons and newspaper articles for me. Recently in one of these bags, she had saved the logo of the wrapper from a bag of Cottonelle Toilet Paper. She had highlighted the slogan "Soft Sheets that Last & Last." Attached to this was a piece of paper with a handwritten note, "I only want it to last ONE TIME!"

Thus far in my life, only once has a job interview digressed to the point where the interviewer talked about when he smoked pot with Crosby, Stills & Nash. True Story.

I recently went bowling and golfing. My scores were 300 and 67. Unfortunately, the 67 was for bowling.

There's an old self-depreciating expression for guys that don't look very attractive. It's "I've got a face made for radio." These days, you can take that a step further for those that have a lousy speaking voice: "I've got a voice made for blogging."

Not too long ago, I went through a drive thru at Taco Bell and made an order. When I pulled up to the window, the guy looked at me and said, "I Usually don't say this kind of thing, but you have the most professional-sounding speaking voice I've ever heard. I'm not kidding. You must be a professional speaker!" As it turns out, I'm not. I do have a fear of public speaking and it takes everything in me to get up to lead a prayer at church.

...and now I'm blogging about it.

I was told that I shouldn't do this:

Goodenough Inn
When I'm the only one in the car, that means I have complete discretion over what to stop and take a picture of. I see something forthcoming and I have a few seconds to decide whether or not to pull over and snap a picture. When I was recently driving from Hohenwald to Centerville, this probably wouldn't have made the cut if MariLynn was with me.

When I pulled into their parking lot, I noticed a big sign they had at the office, something like: 'Absolutely NO U-TURNS! These premises are under constant video surveillance. Violators will be prosecuted!" So, I took this picture and sheepishly went to U-turn to get on the road towards Centerville.

I hadn't been there for 30 seconds when a Hohenwald cop car pulled into the lot. I thought: Drat! They really mean business here. As it turns out, the cop was only there to make a U-Turn and head back into Hohenwald.

Kissing in the green car
Or, more accurately:

Kissing someone that vaguely looks like Barbara Bush while in the happy cross-eyed green car.

Sometimes for the fun of it, I don't want to give the context of the photo, such as where it was taken.

The look on the cashiers face when someone goes through with it: Priceless

I had forgotten about it on and just happened to go through the drive through on that day. There were a couple of high school girls that had sewn black circles onto a white t-shirt. They also gave plush cows to all children. Over the years, I have accumulated a few of those cows and I don't even have kids yet.

Soap Opera Laundry

Mary, why weren't you home when I came for our Rendezvous?
Sorry, Steve, but I had to do the Laundry!
It's Mike isn't it! You'd rather be with Mike that with me when I come over!
No, Steve! I have some socks that needed washing! You've got to believe me!

Is it obvious that I'm not good at writing Soap Opera dialogue?

I have chosen my running mate, but won't tell you who it is yet. Instead, expect a hastily sent text message from me while your sleeping at some point this week.
