Flatlining…

February 7, 2008

Mitt Romney…

I hear he’s dropped out of the presidential race. Since I couldn’t care less about Republicans, this news item doesn’t matter much to me. I’m sure all of the conservative types are bent out of shape over it, though, because this means that John McCain is practically guaranteed the nomination.

Of course, in the long run, the Democrats are going to win the election anyway. So, maybe, this is good for conservatives… Ensure McCain gets the nomination so he can be the sacrificial lamb for whomever the Democrats elect as their nominee… The Bob Dole of 2008, if you will.

Kirsten Durst

It’s more then a little ironic that an actress best known for playing a character named “Mary Jane” has gone into rehab. Remember, though, that for every Hollywood type that actually admits their problems & seeks some sort of help, there’s a whole busload of them that continues to use drugs with complete & reckless abandon.

American Idol…

I watched both episodes of the week yesterday. The only reason why I bother with the show is because my Dad enjoys Reality TV & it’s one of the few shows that we watch together. Otherwise, I could care less about Paula Abdul’s hourly mental meltdowns, Randy Jackson’s weight or how they’ll manage to squeeze Simon Cowell’s ego through the double doors of the audition room.

I’ll never understand people who actually care for the contestants. I don’t care what their name is, what they’ve done for a living, what their favorite color is, which family member has died lately… Blah blah blah.

From what I understand of the rumored “Top 24,” most of them are ‘Ringers’ (aka People who can sing well enough so that the competition doesn’t stink, aka The Sanjaya Crisis of last season) anyway so what difference does it make anymore? None.

Letting Yourself Go…

January 29, 2008

Crap that I did today:

  • Work.
  • Exercise.
  • Brush cats.
  • Help solve new jigsaw puzzle my Dad & I are building.
  • Watch the TV show “American Idol.”
  • Watch TV coverage of the Republican Florida primary.
  • Complete yesterday’s personal challenge.

    Observations:

    • My prediction for tonight (the primary, not “American Idol”): Ready. Tested. Gone.
    • Celebrating a hollow victory makes you look mentally-challenged. Maybe you should actually win something of value before you make a big deal of it.
    • The TV show “American Idol” needs to be put out of it’s misery.
    • Drink after you attend a formal function, not before.

    Resume Update:

    • Nothing yet on Company “A” or “B” response.

    Mission Accomplished!

    • I remade my bed earlier today. I feel so neat & tidy.

    My personal challenge for tomorrow:

    • Do my taxes. I’ve got all my financial stuff in already.
