Told Ya So

As I have said several times now, parents, and you, are the ultimate judge of what should be on your television, not the FCC. Well, it seems 82% of registered voters agree with me. TV Watch, a group dedicated to keeping the goverment out of the business of regulating TV, commissioned a poll of registered… read more

So…Microsoft Messenger 8.0 Beta decided my computer was it’s own personal play toy and decided to spontaneously reboot my system five times in about a half hour period. So one $90 technician call later we traced the problem to MSN 8 Beta, uninstalled it and the system seemed fine. So I spent the rest of… read more

Yep, it’s that time of…week…again…for *snore* huh? What? Oh yeah, The Apprentice synopsis. The teams met up with Trump, Bill Rancic and Carolyn aboard a Norwegian Cruise Line ship to receive their next task. They were to come up with a 30 second commercial to promote the companies new “Fire In Every Room!” cruise…wait…that’s not… read more

Some people just do not need to be in the business world. The way people act on The Apprentice make more sense to me after days like this. I am not going to take the fall for you mess ups and I have already spent 5 months trying to fix this guys mistakes and he… read more

ABC’s “Extreme” Exploitation – March 27, 2006 You know, I don’t remember what the world did before came along, but I, for one, don’t really want to remember. It seems that ABC has decided it’s ok to start dictating what people are most deserving of the Extreme Makeover:Home Edition treatment. In a letter to… read more

The Channel I watch All My Children on in the afternoons, when I can, shows the syndicated version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, the version hosted by Meredith Viera. I try to avoid seeing this show, but sometimes I do flip channels early. So today I flip over and a woman gets asked… read more

As you probably all remember, back in June I burned my leg with a pot pie I dropped. I have a lovely scar from it, but overall it healed nicely. So, tonight I decided to throw a lovely Marie Callender Lasagna in the oven. In the last 15 minutes of baking you are supposed to… read more

As I get ready to return to Tokyo again, I decided to go through my Google Earth on my laptop and mark the places I go the most so I could refresh my memory now, and when there. I also thought it would be fun for my family to see where I go, and I… read more

V For Vendetta

I hate to say it, but I’m not big on going out to the theater any more. It always seems more hassle than it’s worth. Ticket prices are climbing, snacks are over priced, if you have to go to the bathroom you can’t pause it and so on. Hollywood wonders why theater attendance is down,… read more

Amazing Race opened with Eric & Jeremy being told by Phil that the leg was not over and being handed their next clue. They were instructed to fly over a 1,000 miles to Frankfurt, Germany and then take a train for a 100 miles to Stuttgart. Once there they needed to locate the Mercedes-Benz factory… read more

The Return of Chef!

South Park is over, and as the title promised, it was indeed “The Return of Chef!”. They used pieced together sound clips of Isaac Hayes from various episodes to provide his voice and made no effort to hide it, just adding to the comedic effect. In short, the episode was brilliant. We learn that Chef… read more

Is it just me, or is this group of candidates on The Apprentice the most annoying group yet? I would love to see them just once concentrate more on the task than on trying to stab each other in the back and set up other people to take the fall. We start off this week… read more
