don’t we watch to hear their opinions anyway?

So, I guess Chris Matthews said “Oh God” before someone spoke. Dude, who cares?!?!!

Seriously, I was shocked when I heard d*ck on primetime tv. I didn’t know you could say that on primetime. I know when JT did that digital short on SNL, they beeped it out everytime. And that was around midnight!

Those aren’t like a regular news broadcast anyway. Those are like commentary shows. Isn’t it the point for them to express their frustration anyway? Isn’t that why ppl watch? I know my sister loves to watch Keith Olbermann simply b/c of how he states his views. It’s total entertainment for her.


go ellen, it’s yo birthday

killin any chance of me on Amer. Idol

Ok, so… not exactly thrilled about this one. But here’s another Conversations in Real life involving my dad.

Let me 1st say that I haven’t been completely there this past week. Starting last Tues, I’ve been super-spinny. Yeah, that’s not exactly a technical term, eh? Well, I’ve been so dizzy that I actually got out of bed last Tues, & just fell to the ground!!! Like, couldn’t even stand up.

It was like Bambi, but on an acid trip. The whole room just spinning around. That was all day last Tues. I didn’t go to work that day or the next (last Wed.).

Then, Thursday, I kinda had to go to work, so I did. But I called my ppl (uh, that’s Kaiser, they have these 24-hour advice nurses to take calls) to see what they thought. They wanted me to come in to get looked at.

Of course they did; that’s their racket, ya know?! They just wanna get you through the door, just like every other corporation. I told them “no way, no how!”

My sister was having a HUMONGO party on Sat in Detroit, & there was no way I was missing it.

The advice-nurse kept insisting, saying it would only be a quick 30-min diagnosis. They thought I prob had Vertigo. I explained to her that the last time they told me to come in for a quick 30-min diagnosis (for a migraine), I ended up getting admitted for 5 days (for viral meningitis). So, I wasn’t coming in until I got back from this party, & we could set up an appointment for next week.

Which we did, & I went to it yesterday, & I do have Vertigo, & they gave me a prescription. And as I’m typing this, I am SOOOO dizzy & light-headed; & feel like I should go lay down.

Ok, back to the post. When I’m not feeling well, I like to stay at my mom’s house. Yes, clichéd. But that’s me. My mom treats me well, & I can watch Ellen with her during the day.

So, to set the scene, I was at my parent’s last night watching American Idol. And they were naming all the things the American Idol winner gets.

Pappa: Whoa, If only D could sing! Then, we could put her up in American Idol & she could try to win it. It’s too bad she isn’t that talented.

My mom: It doesn’t matter anyway, she could NEVER go to American Idol, even if she could sing!

Pappa: Why not?

Ma: Cause she’s way too old. They have an age limit to that, you know.

Pappa: Oh.

Uh…. WAHAT!! I’m sitting right here ppl! While they’re discussing my inability to sing & how old I’ve become.

So, long story coming to an end (can’t really say “long story, short”, eh?), I’m sleeping at my own house tonight. For the 1st time in over a week.

stupid crackerjack crackhead

So, TIoP just posted that MSNBC finally canceled that stupid Cracker-Jack Crack-head’s show.

Thank GOD for small favors, huh? You remember Tucker Carlson, don’t cha? Here’s the post where I got super-mad at him:

And here’s my post just after that to self-promote:

hello… glass house anyone?

Oh, you tough football boys crack me UP! Thanks for this, though. I did need a laugh today.

I mean, whatev, maybe they are piping in extraneous noise. I just really don’t think the Pats are in any position to point fingers at any other team right now. Sorry, kids, but you kinda forfeited that right when y’all went shady.

Not that all the football teams aren’t being shady. Cause they’re all pulling something. They are guys, after all.

Now I’ve gotta stay up late to see what Dave’s gonna say about this. Cause Dave films his show around 4-ish, & the story’s out already, & the Colts are his team.

*click on the pic to go to the story. Oh, & has audio of it.

UPDATE: Dave’s in reruns this week due to the Writer’s Strike. So, I’ll be in bed by 9:30 pm (since I only got about 4 &#189 hours last night).

Cloverfield Slushos

Or, A special post for Chaylene
Hey Chaylene,
I was going to respond to your comment, but then I sorta started rambling, & figured I’d do another post.

So, this is actually kinda an extension to yesterday’s post about the Transformers movie. I mentioned the mystery trailer preceding the movie. It’s supposed to be some new sci-fi-ish monster-ish movie by our very own Bad Robot. I’m pretty interested in this movie, & I know a bunch of other ppl are too, so I figured I’d collect everything I know so far into one post, & maybe we can make some predictions. It’s turned into so much more than the movie for me, I love a good real-life mystery. My boss once told me I should’ve gone into work for the FBI or become a private detective. I love this stuff.

The only real official site so far is It’s only got snapshot pics on it. But every so often, they add a new pic, & you can click on each pic & drag it around your screen. Ya, sorry, but that’s all I’ve got so far.

JJ says that there’s a few other movie websites out there, but I guess it’s a viral marketing campaign, & they’re not telling what the actual sites are. JJ wants us to find em for ourselves.

May be true stuff
There’s another website called that some have confirmed is an official website for the movie; but I’m not buyin it unless I hear it from an official Bad Robot or Paramount source. Slusho is a (fictional) frozen drink (Slushie) that Vaughn offers Sydney when they first meet in that official debriefing in Alias.

Not really true stuff
I guess there are some “Ethan Haas” websites out there supposedly about the movie, but they’re fake. Also, is a fake. So, I haven’t even gone to them, b/c they might cloud my judgment. Yeah, that’s how into my detective work I get. And there’s rumors that the monster might be Cthulhu Mythos or Godzilla, or might tie in w/ Lost; but I’m not buyin that either. Very skeptical, am I.

Ok, so I’ll update this as I find out more stuff (unless I get too lazy). I did post that YouTube video that shows the trailer in my previous post, but Paramount might have their lawyers take it down. If so, you can go to Apple’s site, b/c Paramount gave them the trailer (well, teaser really, right?) to post there. You can go to to see it, or you can click on the pic for the teaser to the left.

springtime = mo pics

Hey everyone,
I haven’t been posting, but I’ve been visiting all your blogs/sites. I haven’t really felt like posting, & have been worried about the state of our relationships w/ each other. I mean in this country as a whole. How we all relate to one another. And I didn’t want to just keep harping on it. Ya know? So, I’ve just not posted.

Anyhoo, you should all know that it’s beautiful outside. Did’ja see 30 Rock last night?!? They were in love w/ Cleveland last night; so much so that they’ve put up a C-town guide on their site!!! Yes, I’m excited b/c I’m a Clevelander through & through, & I do love this town. It’s gorgeous here today.

Oh, if you like 30 Rock, you should try their online “Marry, Boff, or Kill” game. It’s a game they play on the show.

Ok, back to my whole “it’s beautiful outside” thing. It is. Beautiful. Gorgeous. And it inspires me to take more pics. I’m carrying my cam around w/ me again all the time; & if I see something, I’m documenting it. Also, this week’s PhotoFriday challenge is “Country”. AND I’m going out of town on holiday, & I’ll be driving through the countryside!!! So, I’m planning on submitting my pic this coming week.

Hope y’all are doing fine. And I hope to have more to post soon.

goin green

Ok, I’m sorry. I do love pink. sometimes. Then, it gets to be too much. Plus, I’ve been a bit stressed lately & stuff. So, I went green. I may go pink again next year for October. We’ll see what happens.

But I thought I’d talk about the color green for a bit. Now, I’m not an expert on color therapy, but I do believe in it & that it works, like music therapy. I’m sure you can find tons of websites on it.

What I do know is that green is a soothing color. It is a de-stresser. In my job, there are times that I have to send email messages that ppl don’t want to hear. When I started, & I had sent these messages, the ppl got upset, & I’m not trying to upset them, I’m just trying to tell them what’s what, but it’s not what they want. Anyway, I just changed the color of my fonts in those emails to green, & they didn’t get as upset. Or, maybe I just didn’t notice it as much. Whatev. I felt better about me, that’s what counts. I didn’t feel like I was making ppl cry (which is what I was told I was doing before).

So, I’m stressed, & I’ve gone green.

In other news, I’m adding a button I’ve created to the left. I’m going to do a whole separate post about it b/c it really deserves it’s own post, & I’ll be able to add a permalink to that post below it.

In other news, GA is on tonight, & I still haven’t had a chance to watch last week’s epi. So, it looks like I’ll be watching 2 hours of Grey’s this weekend.

just checking in

Hey guys,
Sorry I haven’t been posting. Have been really busy, plus there’s just stuff going on in my life that I can’t talk about. I know, why even mention it, right?

Here’s what I can tell you. I just got back from the Getty Center/Museum, & it is A-MAZE-ZING!!! I can’t even tell you. Well, ok, maybe I can (& I will), but not now. I just got back to my room, & I’m just across the street from the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre & the Kodak Theatre (yes, where the Academy Awards are).

But I have to go. I’ll have more to write later. Just wanted to check in, & let you guys know I’m still alive. I didn’t die in the 5 hour plane ride on the way here. Wait, should I not have said that until I complete the 5 hour plane ride back home? Well, whatev happens, happens.

I’ll send out a post on Tues just to let y’all know I didn’t just jinx myself. (I hope).


Ok, so just to let you know. I haven’t been gone the last couple of days, I’ve been trying to figure out how to expand & collapse my sidebar.

And I’ve finally GOT IT!! Yea!

I know it’s not really a big deal; but it kinda is to me. I hate clutter, & it felt like there was so much clutter in my sidebar. But it’s all cleaned up now.

So, I can watch the shows I taped tonight now. Some of you know that I pretty much refuse to watch anything at it’s regularly scheduled time. I tape everything & watch it whenever I want. That way, I’m not at the mercy of da man.

So, now I love ‘Ugly Betty’ & my reg ‘GA’.

If you’re a GA fan (um, that’s Grey’s Anatomy), go over to my sidebar. Under the “Waste Time” area, there’s a blog written by the GA writers, as they blog about each show they’ve just written after it airs. I think it’s pretty sweet.

I think I’m gonna love me some Blogger Beta now that I’ve kinda gotten the hang of it, & figured out how to adjust things to how I want them. There’s more to come….

Peace out, yo.
