I’m pretty sure that the Redskins are America’s team.

 It is the capitol of America.

Way to go, America! Redskins!

  • What do you want to know about Fran?
  • She’s a dead shot. Or at least can kill you dead with a shot (even if you’re a harmless mommy bird protecting her young). She shows no mercy.
  • She can really light up a party. Literally. Set other people’s houses ablaze. She will show no remorse, just giggle and toss her head.
  • She once decided to up and run a 5k race, just to see if she would break a sweat. She didn’t. (Oddly enough, she floated through half of it – and we have the photographic proof).
  • She can talk you into anything. And make you think it was your idea all along. (It brings to mind a story of how four room-less tourists took up with a man on an oxygen tank in his private home in Jackson Hole. Or, how some lovely children got to tour an American Embassy abroad, even though it was closed to the public.).

What does your world look like?


‘Cause mine needs a thorough scrubbin’!

I’m sure Comedy Central is forcing their hands and I’m not sure how good these shows will be without their writers but, selfishly, I’m glad they’re coming back.

They summed it up in a joint statement, Stewart and Colbert said: “We would like to return to work with our writers. If we cannot, we would like to express our ambivalence, but without our writers we are unable to express something as nuanced as ambivalence.”

Reading the entirety of the National Enquirer article does make it seem a little suspect. John Edwards’ staffer is claiming to have fathered this baby. Okay. But if that married man with a family had fathered the child, would his wife let him move that adulter-ator into the neighborhood and have dinner with him? Uh-Uh. No, No way. Forget it.

It makes NO sense. Right?

Am I the only one who can’t wait to see how this plays out?

Kind of a pity since I had just stopped hating the ambulance chaser mere months ago.

I cannot believe that someone so close to me worked for a Japanese company and failed to mention this holiday tradition. It’s Brillz, people!

Bonenkai is a “forget the year” gathering. The aim is quite simple and straightforward – to help you forget the unpleasantness of the the year.

What does this entail? Do you write your troubles down on strips of paper, place them on tine sailboats and set them sail? Do you go to a temple and kneel in prayer in some sort of syncretized Buddhist/Shinto ceremony? Do you burn notes of the wrongs you have done and have been done to you? Write your apologizes in the soot?

No, no, no, no, no, no, No! You foolish simpletons. You get drunk on the company dime.

Here’s to you, boozers!

In the “I want to be famous too!” category: Britney Spear’s 16 year old sister is pregnant.

The competition is heating up, y’all. I seem to remember a gum-smacking Britney telling Matt Lauer she was poor white trash. Don’t worry, honey, we believe you. You can stop trying so hard now. You can put the gunrack back in the trailor. Every last one of us is convinced.

I do wonder whether Nickolodeon will still think Jamie-Lynn Spears, now an unwed teen mommy, is still a good role model for kids. Maybe they should rethink her contract on Zooey 101. No?
