A Sandwich Just Isn't a Sandwich Without Weekly Features

Per tradition, Sunday is weekly feature day.

This week's top five is a bit random, but...well, there really is no good explanation. It's just plain random. It is top five sandwiches:

5. Turkey - Healthy and flavorful. Is there anything it can't do?

4. Roast Beef - As something of a red meat connoisseur, this has to make the list.

3. Tuna - Mercury levels be damned. This is good on lightly toasted bread and little egg or celery in the mix doesn't hurt.

2. Italian Sub - Can't decide which deli meat you want? Just put 'em all an there and slather on some giardiniera.

1. Peanut Butter & Jelly - The timeless comfort and overall versatility of this sandwich make it king. Congratulations PB&J and thank you for all the wonderful memories. You kick grilled cheese's ass.

This week's cool-ass thing you will never own is a snowspeeder, which is a real shame if you live in the northern half of the country because winter is going to hit soon. You'd never have to worry about getting stuck and traction wouldn't be an issue. Unless, of course you're talking about a tractor beam. Then you may run into an issue.

This week's sign you are a nerd is that you insisted on categorizing your children's Halloween candy. Just let it sit in the bucket and they can pick out what they want. When it's organized too well it makes it harder to steal some from their stash.

This week's nemesis is anyone who already has Christmas decorations up. Wait until the week of Thanksgiving at least. Sheesh!

This week's lesson learned is that you should wash your hands immediately after applying Vic's Vap-o-rub on your congested children. Should you not wash them prior to rubbing your eyes, you are in for a surprise.

This week's equation expresses the likelihood that the given people in any room will find me funny.

One needs to multiply the average room occupant's knowledge of Star Wars, their appreciation for fart jokes, their appreciation for random movie quotes and their tolerance for sarcasm and divide that figure by their age in years multiplied by their lack of tolerance for nerds and their instinctive hatred of tall, handsome people.

Needless to say, I don't go over well in a room of old, short, fat, bald guys who do nothing but talk about sports all day. thankfully, I tend to avoid such rooms (and believe me, they're out there).

Finally, this week's Star Wars quote is, "What good is a reward if you ain't around to use it?"

With the weekly features complete, time for some housekeeping. Please vote in our poll for your favorite Avenger. Also, please vote for my blog on the Blogger's Choice Awards site. All said voting can be done by referring to the left hand column. Also in the left hand column is a list of upcoming interesting stuff for the week ahead.

And for those of you awaiting the latest installment of our continuing story, your patience is appreciated. It should be posted tomorrow.

Thanks for reading.
