Silly business partners

Why is it my business partners can never IM me before they hit the Skype button to see if I’m busy? Here I am, enjoying a free Green Day concert on AOL’s web site when out of the blue they both start ringing my Skype, which causes an outrageously loud phone ringing sound in my… read more

Sumo wrestlers grapple in Las Vegas tournament – Yahoo! News Oh this just kills me! I love Sumo wrestling and I knew nothing about this!

Since this my 400th post (not days in a row), I thought it was time for a good old fashioned, totally random, rant. As anyone else as creeped out as I am by the Burger King? Egads I hate these commercials. It’s the way he just…APPEARS! He seems to mean malice to people, he’s creepy,… read more

Columbus Day

Ah, Columbus Day, the day we set aside each year to celebrate a lie. It always warms my heart. People tend to forget that Christopher Columbus wasn’t looking for North America when he landed here, he was looking for the West Indies. Quite the navigator there. He also believed, until his death, that the entire… read more

South Asia Earthquake

India has reported 600 dead and Afghanistan is reporting four people so far. The hardest hit area is Pakistan controlled Kashmir, which has been… read more

Week 3 of the Apprentice 4started off with Excel Corp sure that Markus would be fired and Chris returning to the suite. Oops! It was amusing to watch their reactions though. There was a lukewarm reception for Markus, and a promise of a team that would work together harder. Toral and Rebecca returned from the… read more


Well, I salute Mark Burnett, he got me to pay attention to Survivor Gautemala finally this week. We started off learning that even though Nakum had the better camp, they were suffering from mosquitoes, heat and just being miserable.

A reminder post

Edited to add: He was later found dead of a self-inflicted gun shot wound.  Good riddance.  This is not a joke, a hoax or anything else. Have you seen this man? His name is Melvin Keeling and he murdered a 13 year old girl who was slated to testify against him in a sexual molestation… read more

The Apprentice:Martha Stewart week 3 started off with the quickly-becoming-familiar scene of Jim and Dawn returning to the suite after another round in the conference room.

Amazing Race 8, Episode 2

Amazing Race:Family Edition chugs along with more wrong turns, yelling parents and silly passwords. The teams left the Rohrer Family Farm, the pit stop for leg one, and were instructed to drive to York, Pennsylvania and find Shoehouse Road, which, oddly enough, has the Haines Shoe House on it, and there they would find their… read more

General poopiness

My laptop died last week, and sharing a computer with the family is not working out well. It looks like the new laptop won’t be here until next week sometime…lucky me. The Eustachian tube is an evil, evil part of your body. When it hurts, it screws up your entire head. Mine are enflamed right… read more

Week 2 of the Apprentice 4 kicked off with Kristi returning from the board room after her defeat of Melissa. She was a bit cockier than she deserved, but oh well. This week the teams were told to come up with an advertising campaign for Lamborghini. The men thought they were assured a win because… read more
