Happy Memorial Day!
Too bad the weather here in CO was crummy, but KT and I did manage to escape to the mountains for a few days – even brought our stinky, hairy daughter with us! We ate at Bubba Gump’s Shrimp for lunch on Sunday. They have a new appetizer called “Lt. Dan’s Titanium Space Legs!” Yummy! We even saw a Pat Angello Fan Club t-shirt! On me, but still!
Keep an eye on the blog as I may cut the Cheese, or review the new Richard Cheese CD…
Sorry, but no Freak Train for me tonight. Next month, I’m there! Again. And I’ll send reminders.
Dammit – Sam did it again! Sam Anderson, a not-so-proud PAFC member, has been published again in a book called Monsters Ink with a short story called “Can You Hear Them Coming?” In case you were wondering, Sam enjoys writing about dark stuff! You can get a copy of the book HERE. And for more dark stuff, go check out my little fiction site and tell me what you think of “Emily” as I have posted part 2!
Let’s start out with a bang this week – a participant on the reality TV show called “The Colony” was found dead in
Pope Benedict’s apartment is up for grabs! A flat in
I’m hearing that Michael Jackson will be leaving the country after the trial (regardless of the outcome) and auctioning off the Neverland Ranch. I’m in! There’s got to be more places to stash alcohol in that building than syringes in a baseball locker room!
BTW, you can bet on the outcome of the Michael Jackson trial online. How pathetic are we as a society?
I love stupid people! And sometimes they don’t get much dumber than people in the south! For instance, a 38-year-old man in AR literally leapt from the passenger side of a vehicle traveling 55 mph to retrieve his lit cigarette that blew out the window. OK, I’ve heard of pulling over on the highway and backing up to retrieve a tarp before, but this is just crazy! He lived, but he suffered serious trauma to his nose, eyes, chin and ego after jumping from the car. And, this may shock you; he was drunk at the time.
While I’m in the south, how about the 57-year-old great-grandmother in
Click it or ticket this weekend! Unfortunately a woman in CA didn’t get the memo as she had NINE people crammed into her vehicle! Someone called the police when they saw the woman close two kids in the trunk, while four were in the back seat, and one was in the passenger seat with a baby on her lap – none had seatbelts on. Time to get a minivan!
Did you know you can also get arrested for a vanity plate? I think we’re safe with AVSFANS, but you should probably stay away from C9H13N. I’m hoping most of you have no clue what that means, but it’s actually the chemical compound for methamphetamine, and despite a state law that prohibits references to alcohol or illegal substances on vanity plates, it may be perfectly legal. I almost got GOSSMER for my big orange Avalanche vehicle, but then I figured I wouldn’t have a big orange vehicle forever. And now it’s gone, so I’m glad I didn’t! However, every time I get possession of the AVSFANS plate, my wife manages to steal it back from me! Maybe I should get NJELLO again?
What’s the deal with women drivers? Before you freak out on me, consider the woman in Philly who rammed her car into a school because she didn’t like the way other students were treating her children. A little anger management? And I thought the girl I carpool with to work was scary behind the wheel! Seriously, I wear Depends on the days she drives!
And I’m walking home today!
Since when did calling 911 to complain about food service become acceptable? OK, so it’s not exactly acceptable, but why do people think it’s the proper use of an emergency number? First there was the woman calling 911 because her local Burger King kept messing up her order. Now, there is an 86-year-old woman in
While I’m on the subject of feisty old people, Burt Reynolds slapped a CBS-TV assistant producer! Ol’ Burt was upset at the guy for asking about the new movie without seeing either version of “The Longest Yard.” I think most interviewers should be slapped, especially in sports and entertainment. Watch the look on James Hetfield’s face in Metallica’s “Some Kind of Monster” when some idiot asks him to sum up Metallica’s career in one word. What is that?
Jerry Rice is a Denver Browncoder now. Should we be excited? When is Rodney Peete going to join this team?
Do you really want socialized medicine? A doctor in
The Italian mob strikes again? An Italian fisherman traded his Mercedes for a rare leatherback turtle (rumored to be endangered) and sent the turtle to the zoo in
Motley Crue is suing NBC after the network banned the group for life. Apparently, the Crue said a naughty word on Leno and NBC got mad. So what about System of a Down on SNL a few weeks ago? I think we should sue NBC for airing that wedding of the teacher who was sleeping with a 12-year-old student! I’d much rather explain a four-letter word to a child than the ethics of a woman who is suddenly being praised for statutory rape!
FYI, Mick Mars is still the ugliest man in rock and roll!
For the record, the season finale of Lost was simply fantastic! How they managed to leave you with MORE questions was just incredible! And, on a side note, we caught the rerun of Grey’s Anatomy – the pilot episode. One of the patient’s on the show had a familiar name, Katie Brice (my wife’s maiden name is Katy Brice). When Dr. Grey called Katie a “pain in the ass,” it brought back painful memories for my wife of my signature in her 8th grade yearbook. I, on the other hand, am still laughing about it! I’m also sleeping on the couch – again!
I always complain about the frivolous lawsuits in this country, but I found out why people sue so much. It’s because they keep winning ridiculous amounts of money for nothing! Remember the woman who spilled hot coffee on her own lap at McDonald’s and was rewarded for being clumsy? Well now a disc jockey in
This could be about a week away!
The Canadian suicide hotline has changed its hours. If you are suicidal and living in
Just when he hit the jackpot, an owner of a music store in FL was arrested – probably because he sold 11 organs in 18 months to a woman with Alzheimer's disease. His wife just thought business was picking up!
Hey, another dumb southerner! An 18-year-old robbed a taxi and then shot himself in the foot while trying to get away. And I mean he literally shot himself in the foot with his own gun! I wish I could make this stuff up sometimes!
A woman in OR is suing Yahoo because her ex-boyfriend is posting naked pictures of her online and in Yahoo chat rooms. OK, first of all, don’t let him take the pictures in the first place. Secondly, why aren’t you suing him? Like Yahoo is responsible! Again, take responsibility for your actions people!
Have you heard about the Australian girl that was sentenced to 20 years in
