Give me an Awww, and I will be happy.

This is not what I had intended to post today, but my computer crashed when I tried to download the new version of firefox. I'm a devoted firefox fan and 1.5 was released today. I should have just been satisfied with the old version. I think I hurt the little guys feelings, and this was payback.

After four hours of tinkering with my dumb laptop, I went to my doctor appointment. It turns out I have tendonitis, bursitis, a sprained neck, and a sprained shoulder. It doesn't get much better than this.

I got these injuries at work. My work station is not ergonomic at all. There are some really obnoxious people who slap you on the arm or on the back to say hello. That doesn't help to much either.

The good news is, I am so drugged out on the medication they have given me I can sit and stare into space. The bad news is, I am so drugged out on the medication they have given me I just sit and stare into space.

Hopefully tomorrow I can see through this medication induced haze and fix my computer to get to the images I need to post something that is not pathetic.

My First Christmas Card of The Year

I opened up my mailbox today and inside was a card.

I saw the gold return address, flipped it over and there was The Offical Seal of The President of The United States.

My Christmas Card! I was so excited I started to jump up and down and do a little dance in front of my mailbox.

This years card is "The Jackson Magnolia with Barney, Miss Beazley, and India Bush" By the artist Jamie Wyeth.

A Useful Driving Tip

Yesterday I was on the freeway and needed to implement one of my driving techniques. I'm no expert but I tend to pick up a few tricks.

You are driving down the freeway, and something happens that you need to slam on the brakes. You don't want to cause a pile up right?

You know the situation, someone does something stupid, or all of a sudden traffic slows or comes to a halt. You feel helpless that someone can rear end you.

Whenever this happens, I immeadiately put on my hazard lights. A quick push of a button and I can alert the cars that come speeding up behind me to be cautious.

It Was Meant To Be

I was watching The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants last night, and my head flooded with memories of Greece.

A few summers ago I spent four weeks island hopping in Greece. There is one memory in particular sticks out in my mind.

We were on the island of Paros, I had just gotten off the roughest ferry ride of my life from Antiparos. I actually vommited over the side of the boat. When I got off of the ferry I literally kissed the ground.

I sat down at the port to wait for my sea sickness to subside. I looked down, and saw a puppy in the gutter. He was shivering, even though it was about 75 degrees that day. His little belly was distended from starvation.

In Greece there are packs of stray dogs everywhere. People are just used to them I guess. Me, being the American that I am, I could not leave the puppy in the gutter.

My sea sickness was fading as I ran to the store to buy some dog food and a cup for water. I hand fed him and helped him drink the water. He managed half a wag. I decided to keep him. If we didn't he would die.

We took "Tixi" with us to a few more islands. A few days later we ended up in Athens. Little Tixi was changing. He had gone from the puppy that was content in your arms to the puppy that tore apart the hotel room.

Tixi was way too energetic. It became apparent that we could no longer travel with a dog. I didn't know what to do.

We were walking through the streets of Pireaus and saw a depressed crippled woman slumped over in a wheel chair. She looked as if she had given up on life.

When this woman saw Tixi her face lit up like a Christmas tree. She didn't speak English, and I don't speak Greek, but somehow we were able to communicate. She wanted to hold the puppy. Tixi loved her right away and this woman loved him back.

I asked her if she wanted to keep him. She said "Yes!" This woman was so thankful. I had to take a picture, it was such a beautiful thing.

With a crooked fist she waved good-bye and I knew the two of them were meant to be together.

Brawl Friday

Black Friday has always been a time of frayed nerves and anxious shoppers. It marks the start of the Holiday Shopping Season.

Yesterday at a Walmart in Florida, things really got out of hand. There was a feeding frenzy over some cheap laptops. A man was wrestled to the ground when he cut the line. Full story and video here.

Who knew shopping could be so dangerous? Dell is offering a $399 notebook. I hope nobody hits me with a rock.

A Shopping Story

Picture this, I'm four years old. I'm shopping with my Mother in a department store. Being the kind of person that I am, I would hide inside the clothing rounders. If you stand up on the legs of the clothing racks, no one can see you. It's a great hiding place.

My Mother was searching for me, calling me, "Deanna, where are you?" I stayed vewy vewy quiet. I was hiding you know. Then, it stopped. I didn't hear my Mothers voice anymore. It was time to peek out from between the clothes.

She was gone! How could she be gone? I started to look for her. I saw a clerk. The clerk said, "Are you lost?" I nodded.

The next thing I remember was sitting up on the counter at the service desk. There were three women there asking me what my name was. I told them it was Elmer Fudd. They kept questioning me "What is your name little girl?" I insisted, "My name is Elmer Fudd".

Finally, over the intercom I heard "Will Elmer Fudd's Mother please come to the Service Desk. Elmer Fudd's Mother to the Service Desk please."

My Mom came running because she knew exactly who Elmer Fudd was.

Nick & Jessica SPLIT!

Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson announced their separation to US Weekly last night.

"After three years of marriage, and careful thought and consideration, we have decided to part ways."

"This is the mutual decision of two people with an enormous amount of respect and admiration for each other. We hope that you respect our privacy during this difficult time."

Lets face it, Jessica didn't write that press release. If she did she would have asked, "What does mutual mean? Does it have something to do with money?" However, the timing was brilliant. Right at the start of the four day holiday weekend, the press can have a few days to cool off.

This Thanksgiving, we can all be thankful that we are not Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson. All the money in Hollywood is not worth losing someone you love.

I may sound glib, but I'm malingering

I subscribe to The Word of The Day from I have always been fascinated with knowing the exact definition of a word.

The other day the word of the day was malinger. It is a verb that means "to pretend incapacity or illness to avoid a duty or work." How nice of someone to invent a word that sounds like a sickness. Hey boss, I can't come into work today. What's wrong? I have a bad case of malinger.

When I watched the now infamous interview between Tom Cruise and Matt Lauer, Tom told Matt he was glib. Glib means to show little thought or preparation. How often do we have to consult a dictionary when a celebrity speaks? That in itself was impressive.

With Thanksgiving Day tomorrow, I'm already in the relaxation spirit and I suspect that I am not alone. Happy Thanksgiving.

The Best Christmas Gifts

With Thanksgiving Vacation coming up this week, I thought this would be a good time for a project.

I always like to have my daughters artwork. I don't like having it on scraps of paper or any other type of media that is easily destructible.

My daughter approached me this year, with a "Can I just give you 20 bucks for Christmas? I don't know what to get you." I said "What! I want the same thing you gave me last year."

Last year, I bought a few pre-stretched canvasses, and invited my niece over. I said, what I want for Christmas, is for the two of you to make me and your mother a painting. The girls were a little intimidated at first. Being only eight and eleven years old and having to do a "real" painting.

I got out the pencils and the newsprint. I said, "What are you going to draw?" Both girls had no idea. I said, "OK, how about a snowman?" They both got excited about the idea. After they drew their snowmen, I got out the paint and some glitter. I had them do a practice run on the newsprint before I gave them the canvas.

I wanted them to get used to the Acrylic Paints, the texture, the brushes, how to mix colors. They then drew the picture on their canvas and after that, they went to town with the paint and glitter. The pictures came out adorable. My Sister was so surprised when she got her gift. My daughter and my niece were able to give gifts from their hearts that didn't cost them money.

Everyone tells me, "Your daughter is so creative". She totally is. Most kids are, give them a project, and you will get some beautiful art that you will have forever.

Mr. Puggles Meets Santa

It's not yet Thanksgiving, but I'm already in the Holiday Spirit. Last night we took the dog to the mall to get his picture taken with Santa. After waiting in line for an hour and a half, I wanted to post his picture.

As we were waiting in line, I was entertaining the other people around us showing off the Pug. He can say "Mom" on command. He also says it when he wants my attention.

Everyone was laughing and saying what a special dog he is. Then he spun around and pooped on the floor. I think he did it for the attention. I was so embarrassed I said, "He can talk, but he's not potty trained." That Mister Puggles!

It should have been a sign, Internet Edition

WARNING: This post is only moderately funny

Lately I have been spending way to much time on the Internet. I decided to do a "It should have been a sign", dedicated to it.

It should have been a sign that I have been spending too much time on the Internet when:

In my head, I hear Susan Powter saying "Stop the Technology!"
I giggle every Tuesday night saying "I'm going to watch My Name is URL".
I call my dog, dogpile.
I call my Dad, dadpile.
I got tendonitis from typing.
I actually said out loud, "I've been so busy uploading all day, I need to go home and download".
I have certain people labeled as "spam".
I find myself wishing that some of the people I am speaking with had to go through "word verification" before they can make comments.
As I'm reading my Bible, I am praying for God to add a search button.
I started writing this post.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms let them be a sign. Momentarily turn off the computer and "Stop The Technology".

Don't say I didn't warn you!

Phillip Morris says: "Talk to your kids about smoking"

I don't know how serious I can take this advice from a cigarrete manufacturer. I was half listening to a commercial, it was saying "Talk to your kids about smoking". It was actually quite endearing. I stopped what I was doing to watch it. I really thought it was a public service ad. At the end of the commercial it said log on to for more information. I was like, whoa, way to cover your butts Phillip Morris.

Of course I had to log on to see what they had. They dedicated quite a bit of bandwidth to their Parent Resource Center. To me, it's kind of like a hooker with HIV that says "I have HIV, so you may not want to sleep with me" for a commercial. But, after the shoot she is out leaning into some teenagers car offering her services. Craziness I tell ya!

Talan to Marry Kim Stewart, For REALS?

What a publicity goldmine. Who comes up with this stuff? Do you think the idea came to light right after the Paris Hilton car accident? Did Kimberly decide to hire Paris Hilton's Publicist?

I can see it now. "Talan, you are hot right now after that accident. Your time on Laguna Beach has ended. It would be in your best interest to do something else unexpected. The timing would be perfect if you proposed to your girlfriend. Your fame would skyrocket." "But I don't want to marry her." "You don't actually have to marry her, just get engaged." "Then we can schedule a break up to coincide with your album drop, Kay?"

Talan Torriero to Marry Kim Stewart was so brilliant, he or she deserves a raise. I'm so not a Kim Stew fan, but this is hilarious. Talan is what, 18 if he's lucky. You go you little publicity rock monsters!

Should have saved it for the wedding night...

I was on the Pennsylvania Turnpike heading into Philadelphia this past Sunday when I saw the Amerber Alert signs telling us to watch out for a red Jetta with a Male and Female inside the car. I was thinking a couple grabbed a little girl, but it turned out to be David Ludwig and Kara Borden.

Dave Lucas on his Capital Region People blog has an informative post with all the links including ones to Kara and David's blog.

Almost every problem I or anyone else has can be traced back to premarital sex. Hear me out, OK? If Kara Borden would not have been in an inapropriate relationship with David Ludwig, do you think he would have had enough passion to murder her parents? Probably not.

He was wearing what I call sex goggles. You know, kind of like beer goggles but worse because this kind usually lasts until you are no longer in that type of a realtionship with a person. You stay with some loser because you mentally impared from the sex.

My Mother was wearing sex goggles when she got pregnant from my biological father who was a heroin addict. Thanks for the legacy Mom. She was 18. I was wearing them when I got pregnant with my daughter. She pays for my impared judgement every day of her life, because she has no relationship to speak of with her Father.

Kara Borden's entire family has to pay for the rest of their lives too because of it. Her parents paid for it with their lives. The teenage girls I see pushing baby carriages around don't know it, but it wasn't exactly the unprotected sex that was their problem. It was that they had sex at all.

Parents and future parents, when you tell your kids not to have sex before marriage, tell them why. Don't tell them it's because the Bible says so. It says so, but God is not stupid. He has a reason, and the reason is to protect us. Tell them why your life got so screwed up for not being obedient. Didn't have a Dad growing up? Married the wrong man or woman? Endured years of abuse? Did have a Dad, but he was never around?

Show kids how precious they are, and that sex of any type is not an option. You know, save it for the wedding night. Tell them it is not bad, but a gift. One that keeps on giving one way or another.

Press Monster Paris Hilton Gets Struck Again

Paris, why did you have to ditch Tink? She never bit you in the face did she?

I know this is rude, but I would like to see a video of Paris Hilton's pet monkey Baby Luv when she clawed Paris' face. Uh, just to make sure it really happened.

How is it that Paris always comes out of every situation smelling like a rose? Her boyfriend trashes two of her cars, and she still lets him drive. Doesn't anyone care that she is still letting him drive? She should ban him from driving her cars.

Now her monkey scratches up her face and no one has any pictures? Maybe that story was just made up to keep her in the press, who knows. Paris has more incidents than Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson have break up rumors.

The thing is, each incident adds to her popularity. She really has that press thing down pat. How does she do it? Paris and I do have one thing in common, we share a birthday. Now, if we could just share a trust fund...

Oprah Winfrey 20th Anniversary DVD

I can't believe it has been 20 years of O. What better way to see Tom Cruise couch jump, bad style and helmet hair (Compliments of Oprah herself), an entire audience being given cars, or to just see the humanitarian that is Oprah Winfrey. I'm going to buy the DVD to live and relive the inspiration and humiliation of 20 years!

Celebrity Compound Name Tags

When did the fascination of the melding together of two celebrity names to form a couple begin? My recollection is that it all started with Bennifer. The original starring Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, not Bennifer 2 where Lopez was traded for Garner. I think it was Ted Casablanca from E! who began the name game.

You know you really made it when you've got a compound name tag. My all time favorite is Spederline. Which belongs to Britney Spears and Kevin Federline. I don't really like any of the other ones. Except for mine of course, which would be DeJesus. (pronounced Day Hay Zeus). Fredi's real name is Jesus, with the Spanish pronunciation of course. I knew our relationship was divine.

A Review, Nicole Richie, The Truth About Diamonds

I picked up a copy of Nicole Richie's book yesterday, and I've finished it already. Not because it is short, but it is because you just can't put it down. In the center of the book there are quite a few color pictures of Nicole, which is a nice bonus.

We are mostly outsiders looking in on Hollywood, but here we have a view from an insider. It's a novel, so it is fiction. Nicole writes the book as herself, and her characters seem to be a mixture of today's Hollywood It Girls. She writes with her usual wit and charm. It's Trashtastic and I am going to read it a second time.

The one negative thing I have to say though is, there are a lot of characters and in the beginning it is a bit confusing. I'm so busy trying to figure out who is who. Like, this one sounds like Paris, this could be Kimberly Stewart, and is this Shannon Dougherty?

If this were my first book, I would definitely be proud of it. It is the crown diamond in her tiara. Look out Paris, Nicole is famous all on her own.

It's OK to kill some people, I guess

This morning, I was out walking my dog. I was stopped by a car who needed directions. I asked them where was the final destination. They showed me a newspaper, it had a map of Moore Township, and a box with an arrow that said "Bones found here". I said oh, I know where that is. That is my Dad's neighbor. It looked like a tour or something.

Last year there was a big to do and my Dad was interviewed on the news, he was quoted in the newspapers. You see, we had this neighbor, he was a recluse. We really didn't know him, he lived in this spooky house. There were all these trailers outside with starving neglected animals in them. The SPCA finally came out and took all of his animals away.

He had a bunch of filthy kids too. When I would ride my horse past the property about 20 of his dogs would chase my horse, then the kids would come running out into the field. I think there was about ten of them ranging from about two to twelve. They looked very neglected too.

It looked like a petting zoo gone bad. I would say hi to the kids and they would whisper and hide behind each other. I never saw a school bus pick up any of the kids. I rarely saw a car go in or out of the driveway.

Well, this guy sold the place and moved to New Jersey. A doctor bought the property and had the house and all the animal trailers demolished. When the excavator was there he found a bone. He didn't think too much of it at first. He figured it was from a cow or something. He set it aside. It started to bother him, so he contacted the police. It turned out it was human femur.

At first they were thinking it was probably old. There were some huge Indian masacres here in the past. Against each other and against the white people that lived here in the late 1700's. But that is another story.

A little bit of research was done, and they realized there was a missing persons report filed by the man's sister in 2000, he was 26 at the time of his disappearance. He had been living in the spooky house with the owner Robert Schmidt, his wife and children. The two men met in rehab.

The police closed off the place and found the rest of the remains. It was a match, it was Robert Sarko.

Now, the owner of the house, Robert Schmidt, was always home. He rarely left the property. It is about 5 acres, give or take, secluded in the woods. Bordered by a 60+ acre field (the field is on the border of my Dads property).

So you are going to tell me that this guy got killed there, with no sign of forced entry, no report of foul play and a grave was dug in the back yard and the owner of the property had no knowledge of it? I would think it would be an open and shut case. No one really pressed, the victim was a "nobody" and the alleged murderer is off without so much as a trial. Last I heard he is still living in New Jersey. It's crazy how some human beings are just "disposable".

I Told A Lady Having A Heart Attack To GO FOR IT!

I felt like crying for about an hour after that. I didn't know she was clutching her chest from a heart attack. Let me start from the beginning.

I was at work, as usual. I had my first potential customer of the day. I was explaining the same concept over and over to him. He was one of those loud talkers. You know the type, they want attention so they talk really loud to look important. As I'm with Mr. Loud Talker, this woman, is hunched over and motions to my chair. I say "Go For It" to her. I thought she wanted to rest on it because she was exercising. We have a lot of walkers here in the mall.

The next thing I know, my phone rings. I'm thinking it's a potential sale. I say, "excuse me for just a moment" to Mr. Loud talker. Mr. Loud Talker walks away, the phone was a wrong number and the next thing I know the paramedics are there because this woman is having a heart attack!

I'm like, excuse me for being so self centered. I felt so bad. I guess it could have been worse, when she wanted to rest on my chair, I could have told her no.

I finally saw my big TV debut

I am on this commercial, and it has been on for about a month now. Last night was the first time I had gotten to see it. Oh boy, I should have practiced my lines in front of a mirror. At the one part I say, "you're favorite cable provider". I didn't realize how much my lips had to move to say that. I was trying to say it really clear and annunciate my words. All you can see at that part is my lips moving like crazy to say "you're favorite cable provider" it's hilarious!

New Jerseys Most Expensive Campaign EVER

If you read this blog, you may have noticed I have been blogging about the New Jersey Gubernatorial Campaign. I don't even live in New Jersey, but Jon Corzine and Doug Forrester were both getting on my nerves. For the record, I would prefer Doug Forrester over Jon Corzine. I didn't approve of his campaign tactics either.

Doug lost. But who are the losers really? The two of these candidates spent 70 million dollars on this campaign. I find that repulsive because not only was it New Jerseys most expensive campaign, it was the nastiest.

It's Election Day! (finally)

Whew, Election Day is finally upon us. The campaign process is so exhausting, and I was just a spectator. Before I'm off to the polls, I'd like to share a blonde moment I had a few years ago. Now I can call it a Paris Hilton moment.

One thing about me, I hate confrontation. But, for some reason, when it comes to politics I'm in your face. Probably because I keep myself educated on politics and the people I usually butt heads don't know the whole story. Anyway, my friends historically have been liberals. Just because it's trendy, trust me on that one. I'm a conservative, which is so not trendy but who cares.

Back when I first was able to register to vote, I wasn't as informed as I am today. I was still opinionated of course. I voted in my first election, and then four years later, I was going to vote again. I had arguments with my friends, I didn't agree with their candidate or his views. We had some heated debates during that Presidential Campaign.

I couldn't wait to vote, I marched into the firehouse (yes, the firehouse this is Pennsylvania) and I couldn't vote! I told them I was registered. They kind of laughed at me because you can't stay registered if you don't vote every two years. I went home with my tail between my legs and vowed never to miss an opportunity to vote.

On that note, I'm off to the polls! Where I live now, I vote in a church. So I get to vote and buy homemade Pennsylvania Dutch food. Not a bad gig.

Get out and vote!

Between the Lines, Britney and K-Daddy

I'm sure by now you all have heard Kevin Federlines "leaked" rap song. I didn't think a song was considered leaked if you gave your producer permission yourself to post it on the internet. But, that is neither here nor there. If you haven't heard it yet, you can here it here.

But beyond the so called leak, According to In Touch Magazine Britney supposedly met Kevin's song "With laughter from his Superstar Wife who was unimpressed." And according to the same mole Britney said "He would sell a hundred, maybe a thousand copies if he was really lucky."

I'm going to give you my hypothesis on our little mole here. I'm willing to guess that the so called mole is Brit's publicist. Were there any reports where Britney denies her reaction to Kevins music? She may just be so fed up with her husband that she wants to teach him a lesson. She certainly knows how to work the press.

Seriously, do you think the first time Kev's gonna play his track for Britney, anyone who could be a potential mole would be there?

The timing of Kevin's "leaked" rap song couldn't have been better. It was right on the heels of Britneys "leaked" comments to In Touch Magazine. That's some high profile domestic squabble don't ya think?

Nicole Richie 100% Fun 0% Calories

I saw Nicole Richie in an interview on 20/20 with Deborah Roberts. Nicole was asked if she had an eating disorder. Of course he said no. The problem is, she used the same poker face she always uses in The Simple Life when she lies. You know the one, where she slightly lowers her chin and gives the puppy dog eyes.

She was also asked about the rumor that she played a tape of Paris during a party. Nicole said, "I would never do that." I was waiting for the simple life sound effects. What I really liked was the seriousness of Deborah Roberts as she interviewed Nicole. Didn't she ever watch The Simple Life?

I was wondering if maybe Mary Kate Olsen was waiting for Nicole in the Limo. When Nicole got back out to the car, the two were probably laughing with Nicole replaying the interview for her. That Nicole, she is so much fun! I don't advocate lying, but with Nicole, I just think of it as "joking".

New Jersey Gubernatorial Smackdown LIVE!

For those of you in the Tri-State Area, get ready. You are in for a great fight, er Gubernatorial Debate. Tonight on NBC at 7:00 Gubernatorial Candidates Jon Corzine and Doug Forrester will have a live debate.

Earlier in the week they had a heated radio debate. One of the issues they banged heads on was a Newark Hockey Arena. Tonight, it wouldn't surprise me if Jon Corzine pulls a hockey stick on Doug Forrester and beats him with it. Then you will see Doug wailing WHY! WHY! Nancy Kerrigan style. You see what hockey does Doug? Let those kids play on the roof. We don't need an arena for it. I wonder if audience members will be wearing big Styrofoam fingers?

I cannot wait until this election is over. Both of these candidates are acting like children. Jon Corzine is the big offender. Last night I had a dream the devil was on my shoulder whispering in my ear "Doug Forrester hates paraplegics". Then I heard another devil on my other shoulder say "Jon Corzine doesn't have his facts straight". They are invading my sleep!

I hope NBC doesn't use that pesky ten second delay. I want to see what happens tonight live. Hockey sticks may fly!

Show Some Class, Not Your A$$!

Today I thought I would watch a different program on TV. I never saw it before, and it's always on so I thought, why not? Now I know why not. It was on MTV, wow do they really objectify women on that show it was hideous. They really aught to be ashamed of the message they are sending to young girls.

It reminded me of a conversation I had with a former roommate a few years ago. Keep in mind, she was going for her masters degree. She is not a dumb girl. She is very beautiful too. We were in the living room and she was watching MTV's Spring Break. There were these girls running around in only shaving cream or whipped cream, some kind of cream anyway.

She said to me and I quote "I wish I could be like that. They are so free with their bodies and are having so much fun." I said to her, "Are you kidding me? They look like idiots. They think the only way they can get attention is by taking off their clothes. You are way too smart to act like that, they should want to be like you."

After I said that, she thought about it, and then she said to me "you know I never thought about it that way. They just looked like they were having fun. I'm actually alright just the way I am".

It was so simple, in two minutes I pointed out a different perspective for her and she got the message. MTV has access to so many cool things. Why do they have to teach guys that girls are objects and they are to be objectified? They show the world that women enjoy being treated this way. Even smart girls fall for it. The whole thing is mind boggling.

As I Ponder the show that is Laguna Beach

Ah, the LB mostly known as Laguna Beach. Yeah, I watch it. You got beef wit dat? I didn't think so.

If you don't watch it, you've got to. A reality show shot in the real Orange County. It's one of those guilty pleasures that you do commit but try to hide. It's like eating a giant fattening ice cream sundae when you are on a diet. You shouldn't do it, it's not good for you, but it just tastes so good you can't help yourself!

This cheater Jason, I have the most questions about that dude. First of all, what is it that all of the girls see in him? I don't see anything appealing. Looks? Nah. Hygiene? I don't have smellivision, but I don't think it's the hygiene. Money? His family has it I guess. His Brains? I don't think it's that either.

How many times was this guy held back? He's like 25 and in High School. He may have graduated this season, but I didn't notice.

Another question, when do they go from having their name on the screen as so and so's friend, to just having their name shown? Yeah, I get that she is LC's friend. You showed me that one hundred times already, can't you just show me her name without the parenthesis? (LC's Friend)

I think what is the best about this show is that it takes you back to a time when all of your problems were trivial. You get wrapped up, and forget your own problems for awhile. I give it two scandalous thumbs up.

Basically what you do is, you write a novel in thirty days. Starting November 1, and ending November 30. The novel needs to be a minimum of 50,000 words. It's all about quantity not quality so don't be scared. You can sign up at

I decided last month I was going to do it. I've never written a novel, so I'm going to be writing one now, bloggy style. What that means is, I set up a novel blog, and I am going to be adding a minimum of 1666.6666 words to the novel each day. Sounds fun right?

Wanted: A New Dad (White Collar Professionals Only Please)

I thought of something this morning that I hadn't thought of in years. When I was three, I went with my Mother to an appointment. There was a man in the waiting room with us wearing a suit and holding a briefcase. I went up to him and said "Are you married?" He laughed and said, "No, no I am not." I said "Great! Because my Mommy is looking for a Daddy." My Mother got so embarrassed, she scooped me up and apologized to the man. That was awesome, I couldn't have done better today if I had planned it.
