The weather changing every hour on the hour and a persistent flu has made me miserable for weeks. You say, what makes that different than any other Monday? The cough makes it different.
My sports weekend was okay. Dale Jr lost but the Celtics were on TV and they beat up on the Suns even without Kevin Garnett. I didn’t see any women’s tennis or golf but I read Trump’s new Celebrity Apprentice will have Natalie Gulbis.
Blogging is not as easy as it looks. In all reality it is much easier than it looks. All there is to it is grabbing a keyboard and tapping away.
When I first began blogging it wasn’t popularly called blogging yet. So I learned to blog like caveman learned to cook food. By mistake. I would try to write something funny and on the days I couldn’t I would just write random thoughts. Mostly about the avoidance of work.
The part I never foresaw was; by writing about the avoidance of work I created work. I became a blogger. From a blogger I have become a magazine contributor (you can find my latest article on finditquick.com or in their print magazine). The latest work I have created is script writing.
Yes it is true, I am writing a screenplay. A friend has a great idea for a movie and she thought, after reading my nonsense, and drinking a few tequilas that I could write dialogue. It turns out she was right!
Her good idea is quickly becoming a hilarious movie about………………you actually thought I was going to tell you? I will when it is finished and the script is safely registered with the Writer’s Guild. Until then I can say it will be the perhaps the funniest movie ever written.
If not - at least it will make my dream come true.
Dale Jr didn’t win the Daytona 500 but he showed flashes of his father and that made me happy.
Natalie Gulbis and our favorite, Paula Creamer, were playing golf again. They didn’t win but anytime they play it makes us happy.
The legislation, among the costliest ever considered in Congress, provides billions of dollars to aid victims of the recession through unemployment benefits, food stamps, medical care, job retraining and more. Tens of billions are ticketed for the states to offset cuts they might otherwise have to make in aid to schools and local governments, and there is more than $48 billion for transportation projects such as road and bridge construction, mass transit and high-speed rail.
Democrats said the bill’s tax cuts would help 95 percent of all Americans, much of the relief in the form of a break of $400 for individuals and $800 for couples. At the insistence of the White House, people who do not earn enough money to owe income taxes are eligible, an attempt to offset the payroll taxes they pay.
In a bow to political reality, lawmakers included $70 billion to shelter upper middle-class and wealthier taxpayers from an income tax increase that would otherwise hit them, a provision that the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said would do relatively little to create jobs.
The spreading Conflicker/Downadup worm is now viewed as such a significant threat that it’s inspired the formation of a posse to stop it, with Microsoft leading the charge by offering a $250,000 reward to bring the Conflicker malware bad guys to justice.
The money will be paid for “information that results in the arrest and conviction of those responsible for illegally launching the Conflicker malicious code on the Internet,” Microsoft said today in a statement, adding it is fostering a partnership with Internet registries and DNS providers such as ICANN, ORG, and NeuStar as well as security vendors Symantec and Arbor Networks, among others, to stop the Conflicker worm once and for all.
CSI – Miami had Puff Diggity Daddy Combs playing an attorney last Monday. Did anyone else see this show? It was about as believe able as LeBron James playing one of Snow White’s dwarfs. It may have been the worst casting I have ever seen.
There as got to be 1000′s of unemployed actors in Hollywood and we have the producers of this show allowing Combs to pretend he can act? I have seen better acting in grade school Christmas plays.
He mispronounced words, his timing was terrible, it was nothing short of painful to watch.
George Bush as a linguist?
I had a nightmare last night that Simon Cowell let those other dolt judges put through Nick/Norman and Tatianna.
I really have to quit eating spicy foods late at night!
I went to Fridays yesterday for lunch. is it possible they could just serve a hamburger or a chicken sandwich? Why does everything have to have a cute name and some sort of sauce or marinade on it.
Just give me a hamburger and fries or a good french dip sandwich and I will be happy.
NASCAR actually had racing today. The Gatorade 150′s were held in Daytona today. Gordon and little Busch won the two races.
You combine NASCAR with the fact, Paula Creamer is playing golf today, for the first time in months and it almost feels like Spring. Creamer is even through 17 holes and 6 strokes back.
