CURRENT EVENTS COMMENTARY

Because I have an opinion on everything, and because I am reading a lot of shit today that is pissing me off, I thought I'd share a bit of what I think.

First of all,I just read that Carlie Bruscia was found dead and I feel absolutely sick over it. Maybe I'm naive, but I really thought she'd be found alive.

E! broke a story about a Tennessee woman filing a lawsuit against Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake, CBS, MTV, and Viacom claiming that the 'wardrobe mishap' caused viewers to:"suffer outrage, anger, embarrassment and serious injury". You know, it's trash like this that makes our country the way it is. I bet you this lady is somehow related to our esteemed leader. Fuckin' A... seriously? This type of mindset absolutely pisses me off. Arg.

Oh yeah, another note about Miss Jackson (if you're nasty), I keep hearing as a punishment they are not going to have her present or perform or whatever at the grammy's. Yeah, I'm sure she's crying her self to sleep, wiping her eyes with million dollar kleenex, while laying on her 1400 dollar sheets... (oh wait, wrong celebrity...) But really, this incident may have cost her a performance at the grammy's but damn, her name is in every houselhold in America right now. And I'd be willing to bet sales are up as well as downloads of music and uh, the clip itself. Curiosity man, this is going to definitely pay off in the long run.

In other news, The cats seem to be getting along a bit better. Less hissing... it's not gone completely, but there' s less of it. Molly was a lot friendlier last night, showing affection and even slept at the foot of our bed for a bit. Ben is pretty indifferent, he ignores her and if she gets too close, sometimes he'll meow; but mostly he'll just sniff at her and that's about it. This morning though she was batting at him from under the chair and he swiped at her once. It was playful though. Asa, on the other hand is still quite pissed that she exists. He doesn't hide as much, though he does hide, but Molly has figured out that he's scared of her so she'll chase him around the house and he'll come tearing into the bedroom then stop and turn around and hiss. It's kinda funny, she doesn't seem scared anymore. She is still a bit uneasy, this morning I picked her up and was petting her, and while she made no real effort to get down she growled, hissed and then bit at me. Prompting a stern "HEY.WE.DO.NOT.BITE." I put her down and she came right up to me to be petted, so perhaps she was in a snit or something.

Tomorrow we are taking both Ben and Asa to the vet for their shots and then Aaron and I will meet with the guy to look at the reception hall. With any luck we'll be writing him a check and then both venues will have been secured! Yay!

oh yeah, dooce had her baby!!! How did I not know this website existed until a week or so ago? I love it when you run across a journal that you can't stop reading. Hers is more of an entire website, very cool, go read it.

One more thing before I do the Friday Five and pics, I was Nance's favorite quote of the day yesterday, apparently I should start talking about Satchel's bowels more often!

The Friday Five

1. What's the most daring thing you've ever done?

Hmmm...I am not a daring person. Tatum and I stole pieces of the Kingdome before it was going to be demolished... actually, it was in the process of demolition, it had been gutted and they were going to blow it up the next month. Technically I drove the getaway car, and she shimmied under the fence... I just don't have the balls sometimes. The other daring thing was when we made a poor choice and went to a certain hotel when a certain major league baseball team was in town because we wanted to meet Cal Ripken Jr and Brady Anderson. Instead we met
Two other players who really got the wrong impression. Not going to go into the whole story here, but we were incredibly naive and just wanted to hang out. Perhaps we shouldn't have gone up to their rooms, though rest assured nothing happened. Of course, Raphael kept hinting towards stuff, and at one point I had my hand on my mace and I said "um, I think you really have the wrong idea here." Heh, it just occured to me that my mom is reading this for the first time. Sorry mom. I'm coming clean. (The story relayed to her was that we sat in the lobby drinking coffee. Which we did, but then we also went up to their rooms BUT STAYED TOGETHER! SAFETY IN NUMBERS! I didn't forget what you tought me... completely.) Anyhoo, the point of that is the fucker never left tickets for us in will call, and we all know why now don't we. Last year when I was flipping channels, I just about choked when I saw him hawking Viagra. Hilarious.

There was also a time when we planned to follow Joey Cora home... heh, I had gotten his address and we decided to drive there and 'break down' in front of his house (which turned out to be a condo), I got out of the car to see if it was the right address (we couldn't see the numbers very well from the street) and as I'm walking away, Tatum begins honking the horn at me like a crazy woman. heh, apparently I was still wearing my "Joey Cora #28" tee shirt. We had gone to the game that night. So yeah, we aborted that mission right away.

2. What one thing would you like to try that your mother/friend/significant other would never approve of?

I don't know... nothing I guess. I'm not into wild and crazy stunts. I guess it would be cutting my hair off again, because they all like it long. Stand back! I'm a crazy woman!

3. On a scale of 1-10, what's your risk factor? (1=never take risks, 10=it's a lifestyle)

1

4. What's the best thing that's ever happened to you as a result of being bold/risky?

Well, I considered blind dates to be a risk... just in self confidence and rejection alone. I took that risk over a year ago, and it changed my life for the best. I would say Aaron is the best thing that's ever happened to me as a result of a risk. :-)

5. ... and what's the worst?

The worst thing pertaining to a risky situation was wearing my claddagh ring that my mom gave me when it had gotten to be too big, and I lost it. I loved that ring and curse myself every day for losing it.



For my dad, this is the automatic waterer that came with Molly. The water is sucked up into that hole on the bottom right and is filtered and sent down the slide thing in the middle. It does this all day, therefore keeping the water fresh. Cool huh?



She loves the string, Asa just sat across the room staring while I played with her using his toy.



She's such a cutie pie



She likes to charge the at the camera



I love the little toesies! (If I screeched that once last night, I screeched it about 500 times. Pity Aaron.)
