Thursday Random Thoughts 4/10

Stuff I have been thinking about:

-Is there anyone else out there who doesn't give 2 rips that the "New Kids" are back?

-OK so I don't agree with China's human rights abuses at all. I think they are a deplorable and stifling tyrannical regime however come on folks... Leave the poor people trying to run with the Olympic torch alone. It's not their fault that China is the world's great Satan. Boycott the Olympics if you want but leave the poor runners alone. Those poor folks look scared to death.

-The Masters starts today, which signals to me that today is actually the first day of spring. Is there anyone out there who would be willing to bet me if I had Tiger Woods and you had the rest of the field?

-Like my good pal Mt. Cat I am happy that baseball season is back. It's too bad that my Mets have stunk it up so far... Yeesh.

-Anyone watching Idol Gives Back last night HAS to agree that Fergie was absolutely awesome. That chick can flat out sing... and the no- handed cartwheels were a nice touch too. Oh and Sarah Silverman sucks... That is all.

-Interesting search note of the week: Someone from the Imax corporation searched and read Mt. Cat's post about the Rolling Stones Imax movie Shine a Light... Kinda Cool huh?

-Who knew that anteaters were such interesting creatures?

-I just don't get this whole polygamist thing. I mean I have a hard enough time trying to keep up with the one wife that I have why on earth would I want more. Yeesh! (disclaimer. I have said the exact same thing to her before and she laughs)

-I heard on the radio that the scientists who invented the Internet (No not Al Gore) have created something called "The Grid" which dwarfs the Internet's capabilities. This Grid will download entire feature films in seconds and transmit holographic images. It's planned to be used mainly by the scientific community for research and communication. Uhhhh yeah right. Wait until the gamers get a hold of this thing. It will become commercially used in an instant. There are a boat load of those World of Warcraft players out there.

-This week Charlotte NC has had airplanes "crop dusting" the entire city to spray pesticides and kill cankerworms. Well it seems that my building was in their line of fire because all day Monday and Tuesday there were these little World War II looking planes were buzzing and divebombing us over here. It was kind of cool actually even though some people were scared because they weren't prepared for it. I think that fellow blogger Reggie said it best when he commented to me that "The entire SouthPark area sounded like Pearl Harbor." HA !!

-Reason Number 24967 on my list of reasons not to live in Wisconsin can be found HERE.

-I think it's pretty sad that the kids of today are only going to know Bruce Jenner as Kim Kardashian's step father. (editorial note - I wrote this note to myself on Tuesday before I knew that Mt. Cat had a random thoughts about Kim Kardashian... Odd)

-OK so the other day I was watching Yo Gabba Gabba..... (Just Kidding)

-The Charlotte NC area has been under severe water restrictions due to a drought for the better part of a year now. We have all been under mandatory water restrictions. What is the reward that we get for this? Well the utility commission for Mecklenburg county is losing money due to less water being used so they just decided to raise the water rates. Go figure right. I wonder if they will lower the rates once the drought is over? Doubtful

-I heard that on a recent trip to Africa Paris Hilton actually inquired about purchasing a Cheetah. This is a true story! Unconfirmed reports also surfaced that she asked the game warden were she wanted to purchase said cheetah if it would sit around her house wearing sunglasses and eating Cheetos.

I thought I was going to care that New Kids are back, but I was wrong, I don't.

If the kids today use Wiki they'll learn more about Bruce Jenner, his page isn't half bad. (unless it's changed since I read it)

I knew you were going to throw some Yo Gabba shit in there. You're back in the doghouse.

Doc said...

I am glad you noticed Leighann... I put that in there just for you!

Leighann said...

I thought we had become friends you little rat bastard!

Just wait, you'll get what's coming to you!

Leighann said...

Anndi, pass the acid >:)

Doc said...

Yikes... She sounds serious!

H E L P !!

The Mountain Cat said...

Paris + Cheetah = Death to Paris.

Lu' said...

Doc the polygamist is not thinking about putting up with those women. All he's thinking about is boinking them! It is the tool they think will rule. Any show I've seen these women are all subserviant mamby pambys any way.

Lu' said...

Idol gives back, the only part I saw was Jimmy K roasting Simon and Simons nipples :)and I heard Carrie Underwood's song.

Doc said...

Lu.. you heard Carrie Underthehood sing? Or you heard that Desperate housewife BUTCHER her "he cheats" song?

Doc said...

Hey Vin... I think Paris finally met her match and found the one animal that is "faster" than she is.

Lu' said...

Doc I don't know what you are refering to, honestly and I WANT TO KNOW.

Leighann said...

Mt Cat, do you think the Cheetah would kill Paris or himself to get away from her?

Doc, you weren't turned on by Teri Hatcher's screachsinging?

Doc said...

Oh I bet you could search for it on you tube... They like opened the show last night with Terri Hatcher and the "TV band" doing a ghastly rendition of Underhood's before he cheats... It was truly the pinnacle of overindulgent Hollywood (at it's worst). There was even a little "skit" before hand... you must see this.

Knight said...

The New Kids need to change their name. What is Yo Gabba Gabba.. I have to go google that now.

Doc said...

Leighann... The sound my cat used to make once a month while shaking her butt in the air before we got her fixed was more pleasant sounding than what Terri was doing last night.

Lu' said...

Just watched the entire thing on YouTube skit included. Couldn't she have just donated a red carpet dress to be auctioned off with the proceeds going to give back? Who did she sleep with to get that gig, hmmmmm?

Lu' said...

Doc, HA HA HA HA HA ! MEOW.

Doc said...

OMG - I just heard this question and (incorrect) answer on a radio quiz show.

Q: Which Simpson sister is currently engaged to be married?
A: Marge

BWAAHAHHAHAHAAAAAA !!

Doc said...

Knight - Please look up Yo Gabba Gabba on You Tube and watch "Party in my Tummy" - That will give you a good example. If you can't find that then look for Biz Markee and Biz's beat of the day.

Anndi said...

*fills up cropduster with acid sets GPS coordinates* You rang Leighann?

um. Doc, for a minute their I thought I read the postal workers were chasing down some Wild Turkey...

Anndi said...

Please look up Yo Gabba Gabba on You Tube and watch "Party in my Tummy" - That will give you a good example. If you can't find that then look for Biz Markee and Biz's beat of the day.

Doc, you know too much about that crap... It's time for an intervention.

Anndi said...

BWAAHAHHAHAHAAAAAA !!


Quite a propos considering you're posting about polygamists...

The Mountain Cat said...

Actually Paris will probably kill the Cheetah in a car crash eventually.

Anndi said...

I actually feel better that we live in a world where Marge is more a part of the collective awareness than Ashley and Jessica.

Lu' said...

What's really stupid of the caller is that if she knew enough to know Marge was a Simpson the she had to know she was already MARRIED! Doink.

Knight said...

OH MY GOD! That Gabba thing has traumatized me into not eating... ever again. Is this some sort of experiment to help overweight children? I did like The Soup clip of Nathanial dancing with Britney. He's got moves.

Lu' said...

OK I just watched Party in my Tummy. I would comment, but I think I'll shoot myself instead *

Doc said...

*fills up cropduster with acid sets GPS coordinates* You rang Leighann?
- Oh S*&T I am in trouble now !!

Doc said...

OH MY GOD! That Gabba thing has traumatized me into not eating... ever again. Is this some sort of experiment to help overweight children? I did like The Soup clip of Nathanial dancing with Britney. He's got moves. - HA! hey Knight so there isn't any party in your tummy? (yummy yummy)

They sing aboput all kinds of stuff... Last week it was "clan up after yourself"

Doc said...

Doc, you know too much about that crap... It's time for an intervention. - I do not know too much... I hardly know anything about it!

Doc said...

OK I just watched Party in my Tummy. I would comment, but I think I'll shoot myself instead - The carrots were sad because they weren't at the party... (the grean beans too)

Jay said...

I was blown away by Fergie last night. She wasn't even lip-syncing either.

Speaking of lip-syncing, if Terri Hatcher was going to lip-sync that abomination of a song she did, you would think they would have been able to make her sound better in the studio. That was just awful!

pat said...

Doc
watching Fergie with Heart was the most spectacular performance Ive seen in a long time on TV..I felt like I witnessed something Id never forget...I am a big Heart and Fergie fan

Leighann said...

When I saw Party In My Tummy there was something going on in my tummy too but it sure as hell wasn't a party!

Doc, have you seen the one where they sing

I'm so I'm so sorry
I'm so I'm so sorry
I'm so I'm so sorry

over and over and over and over and over again!

Yeah, screw that! :p

Leighann said...

I agree, the best part about Idol Gives Back was Fergie/Heart although I have to say that Ann looked a little annoyed....

Doc said...

Before last night I just liked Fergie... Now she may be my favorite female artist!

Doc said...

Ann Wilson looked like an older version of Carly Simthson, like JUST like her... It was eerie.

I never saw that I'm so sorry song... but I still have some episodes on TiVo I have to go through.

Leighann said...

I'd like to dip her in honey and roll her around in Cheetos

wait, what were we talking about?

Leighann said...

You TiVo Yo Gabba Gabba? Doc.... what about the porn my friend??

You're a lost cause I'm afraid!

Doc said...

I'd like to dip her in honey and roll her around in Cheetos - Who Ann Wilson ??

The Mountain Cat said...

Doc, Fergie?!?!?! What happened to your girl Pink????

Leighann said...

Well I was referring to Fergie but Ann was pretty hot back in the day.

Can't I have both?

Leighann said...

Doc, I'll fist fight you for PINK!

Lu' said...

Pink is hot and that bitch can sing. I think she'd be alright with that? "cause I know she could kick my ass.

Lu' said...

Hmm, maybe I should've watched IGB. I was blogging and watching Criminal Minds. Hey Jay, what happened to Chelsea Lately?

Leighann said...

I'd like to see Pink and Gwen Stefani.... well you know ;)

Leighann said...

Lu, we recorded Criminal Minds last night, last weeks episode gave me goosebumps!

Leighann said...

By the way.... cankerworms?? Isn't that something one gets from coming into contact with Heather Mills or Omarosa??

Doc said...

Doc, Fergie?!?!?! What happened to your girl Pink????
- Dude I am sooooo over her you are behind the times. Pink has been so dissapointing to me.

Anndi said...

I felt a tingle when I saw Heart AND Fergie together...

Lu' said...

Its a good show. Do you watch Bones?

Lu' said...

Dude I am sooooo over her you are behind the times. Pink has been so dissapointing to me.

WHY DOC? DOESN'T SHE MAKE IT MOVE FOR YOU ANY MORE?

Leighann said...

Nope don't watch Bones.

Over Pink? Doc, you're feeling feverish!

Doc said...

Nope... No more Pink for me. It's over between us. Has been for awhile.

Karen said...

I totally care that the New Kids are back. I could not be more excited.

And Doc, the part you are missing about the polygimist thing is that you don't have to keep all your wives happy. They just have to keep you happy. You can beat them or whatever you'd like. The men are in charge in those places.

The Mountain Cat said...

Do you remember when The New Kids On Their Cocks changed their name to just 'NKOTB'? They wanted to get some street cred in the 1990s. Well it didn't work.

Lu' said...

I think what San Francisco did by rerouting the Olympic Torch runner was a bunch of shit! There were actually people lined up waiting to see history in the making. These protesting get in your face assholes should FIND ANOTHER WAY. They showed this Dad and his kid that had been waiting to see it. Oops no lifetime memory for you guys; bull shit!

Doc said...

The men are in charge in those places.

Seeing as YJKOBT has a very high female readership I hope you will let me snicker at Karen's funny post... Yeah sure the men are in charge. Women always want us to think we are "in charge"

Lu' said...

Well when some of you really are in charge, look how things turn out :) You left yourself open for that one Doc.

Doc said...

HA - That is a good point Lulita! - ROTFL

Lu' said...

OOh I like it when you say full name; Doctor.

Doc said...

Thats PhD.. not MD.

:p

Lu' said...

Elmer?

Doc said...

Pfudd?

Lu' said...

Wassup Doc!

Doc said...

I was fine until I saw that evil peep-lookin' pink easter bunny over on your blog... Scared me to death! :p

As American as Apple Pie said...

I don't know Doc...you could qualify for a certain type of MD.

As American as Apple Pie said...

I was wondering what those yellow planes were for?

As American as Apple Pie said...

That pink bunny thing is SCARY! Had to check it out.

As American as Apple Pie said...

perhaps the turkeys are attracted to the red, white and blue postal trucks ...that kills me! The turkeys are trying to mate with the Postal workers. Gives new meaning to the term "going postal".

Lu' said...

It is peep pink isn't it. Mmmm I don't find it scary at all.

Doc said...

Thought you might like that Apple !!

And Lu... you ain't skeered 'cause you got a shotgun.

"That Rabbit's a killer...He's vile... beware 'cause death awaits you with nasty pointed teeth" - anyone? anyone?

As American as Apple Pie said...

Bunnicula

Lu' said...

aaaApplePie, that's about as clever as Phfrankieee's skullbunnery. ha ha ha

As American as Apple Pie said...

Lu--no really, there's a book called Bunnicula. I'd love to take credit for it, but alas, I am not that creative.

Doc--am I right? Or were you thinking of something else?

Doc said...

"That rabbits got a vicious streak a mile wide its a killer!"

The Mountain Cat said...

NKOTB on YJKOBT with DOC and TMC from TMMC.

Becky said...

I could honestly give a flying fuck about the stupid new kids on the block reunion.

Glad to see I'm not the only one!

Micky-T said...

Holy Shit! There's a lot to miss here, if you don't visit by the hour!!!

Lesley said...

Why don't the call themselves New Men On The Block..I mean they are not exactly kiddies anymore. And no I don't care if they are back or not.
Paris buying a Cheetah! There should be a law against people like her owning any animals at all, I can imagine her buying it a big L.V bag to carry it around in..

Doc said...

LOL @ Lesley - The mental image of Paris lugging around a Louis Vitton bag with a live cheetah in it is priceless!
