"Do you think it would be too much trouble to SHUT YOUR KID UP?"
Which reminds me of this commercial someone sent to me about a little boy who has a wild temper tantrum in a grocery store with his father. The kid is throwing stuff at other customers and screaming his head off (I think it's in Italian). At then end, a big logo for Trojan condoms appears. So sometimes I want to say,
"Next time use a condom!"

Now, I really wanted to stop and get out of my car and punch this woman in the face. Her car was sort of across from mine. She rolls down her window and gives him a dollar. Then the bitch looks at me as if she's better. If she was walking downtown, at night, would she do the same? I feel sorry for homeless people, but I'm not working and 50 cents adds up over time.
Is it wrong not to feel a little guilty? I have cable, a car, internet, and can take a shower every day. However, I don't do drugs, drink continuously, or have had the pleasure of getting screwed over by the U.S. military.

a True underdog story
Dirt?...no...manure...yes! Funny how this "insignificant piece 'o trash" can still make time to do interviews, even though it's only British t.v.
“In the process he destroyed me, and that was the way he was going to have to do that, to get through impeachment,” Lewinsky added. “I was a young girl and to hear him saying some of the things he was saying today — it’s a shame.”
She was a young girl who "knew exactly what she was doing." She just couldn't keep her big mouth shut. And as far as destroying her, funny how she doesn't mention that she received $175,000 for each of the two interviews she did. Hiroshima was destroyed, and as far as her reputation, does anyone really care?

A gaunt, bald humanoid named Galt tells them they are on the planet Triskelion and that they are now "drill thralls"...slaves trained to perform gladiatorial contests for the amusement of unseen masters called "The Providers." Kirk flatly rejects the slavery Galt offers, but he and his crew are at the mercy of the Providers and are soon fitted with "Collars of Obedience" that can assault them with crippling pain.
Where ever Kirk is, he always gets the babe, no matter how freaky she looks.
SHE HAS GREEN HAIR!
"The Gamesters of Triskelion" is one of the cruelest episodes of "Star Trek", as the captured crewmen are repeatedly tortured and appearances seem to indicate Uhura is raped by Lars. The show has a crude energy to it and lots of action, but would mentally superior beings such as the Providers really waste their prodigious talents betting on bloody contests? Does their species have no imagination?
I got most of this info from some Star Trek geek's website. The species doesn't even have bodies! As far as Lars raping Uhura, it's a stretch, but then again, aliens are no different from some of the people in our society. I do like the collars of obedience. I'm sure they'd come in handy at the public schools.
One thing annoyed me, and I'm glad we left when we did, but this man kept coughing and not covering his mouth. A couple times he sneezed. It wasn't anywhere near the food, but would I want to touch a serving spoon or tongs after he just used them? NOT! The best time to go is when they first open, at least there aren't that many freaks.
MMmmmm daily featured menu items
Maybe a career change...they have won some prestigious awards...

Grits? What? No rice? Just imagine an Asian family surrounded by southern white folk and looking a little confused at the question about grits. After she walked away, I asked "What are grits?" My dad, in his usual funny way, said "I don't know, something they eat around here." On this same trip we had stopped at this truck stop, but no one would approach us. And when we sat down at a dirty table hoping they would clean it off, no one did. We left and went to this small little mom & pop hamburger stand along route 66(?). I swear the people running it never saw Asian people before. They just kept staring. They even forgot to charge us for a couple of things because they were in such awe of our presence. (LOL)
There are four wagons (sans station) that made a top ten list of family cars. I thought this one was the best and most affordable.

"I have plans, actually not right away, but like in 15 years from now, I'll do a third version of this saga," the director said at a news conference to promote "Kill Bill -- Vol. 2," which opens in Spain next month.
Tarantino said part three would focus on the daughter of a hired killer that Uma Thurman's character bumps off early in her revenge spree.
How cool is this? Reese and I had talked about Tarantino having room for a third installment with the little girl seeking revenge. That's exactly what O-Ren Ishii did. Is revenge a good thing? Dictionary.com defines revenge:
1. To inflict punishment in return for (injury or insult).
2. To seek or take vengeance for (oneself or another person); avenge.
I guess there are positive and negative aspects to it. I believe in karma because I've had my fair share of it coming back at me. But I also believe that people should get what they deserve, especially if they've wronged someone. Hhmmm...I just might go see Kill Bill vol. 2 again this week.

Oh, Clinton's book hits the shelves this week. I'd buy it, just to say I'd bought it, but then again, 900 pages of self-adoration seems a bit much. I wonder what that ho-bag intern is doing now? She could have had it made if she'd just kept her big mouth shut. Remember when I posted this website, WASHINGTONIENNE? One would think she'd have learned from the previous ho-bag.

I remember when a portable phone was only for the priviledged few, but now, anyone can get a phone; and those who do, believe the world revolves around them. I'll never forget the time I was standing in line at the DMV and I heard this woman behind me call some sound studio to book some recording time. When I turned around to look, she was the shape of a pear, with humongous hips squeezed into a pair of spandex shorts; long straight hair with bangs, and she wore glasses. She was trying to be Mariah Carey. This ugly image was seared into my mind and I think of it everytime I see someone on a cell phone, standing in line at the market, Target, or of all places, Jack in the Box.
And another thing that irritated me today, does anyone know how to use their blinkers? How am I suppose to know when someone is trying to make a turn. Maybe if they got off their cell phone and just drove, I wouldn't have to deal with this problem.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Two teenage girls used the sign-in book at their school to steal the identities of a dozen teachers and buy $5,000 worth of phones, clothes, food and toys, with the help of two adults, according to the Leon County Sheriff's Office.
The four, who live in an apartment together, are accused of using the names and Social Security numbers of teachers at Nims Middle School to buy items over a nine-month period starting in September, said Detective Leslie Kitching.
Kids these days. I'm sure there are some out there that wouldn't even think of doing something like this. The middle schoolers I've seen...I wouldn't put it past them. Manipulative conniving pieces of shit. Parents really should take a more responsible and active role in the lives of their children.

Brockton authorities are probing an alleged junior high prostitution racket, including whether to charge a 13-year-old girl accused of pressuring her mentally impaired friend into turning tricks for as little as $5.

Can you believe that? I sure can. I've seen my share of twisted little middle school shits, and at this one school, there were quite a few having oral sex behind the bleachers on the football field. Some of the boys could be little pimp daddies. When are school administrators and parents going to wake-up and realize their sweet innocent looking children are little perverts?
I had lunch with Reese today and he said that this new site isn't as cutting edge as my old one (God rest its soul). So I think I'm slowly going to revert back to my old, evil, vocally obnoxious self.

The Day After Tomorrow
(This would be a great way to clean up Los Angeles)
I went and saw this movie over the weekend. I read a few of the reviews and I try not to let the opinions of other people influence my decision to see a movie or not, but sometimes I'm wrong. For example, my friend Reese told me a year ago about the movie City of God, and I went and saw it a year later, but wished I'd seen it sooner. Here are some of the things said about this movie:
"Too bad the plot is full of holes, the story itself does not stay within its own reality, and the dialogue is downright laughable. I know disaster flicks rarely make a whole lot of sense, but this film seems to go out of its way to be stupid."
Review: 'Day After Tomorrow' a wreck
Special effects are amazing, but the rest ...

National Geographic News spoke with Tom Prugh—senior editor at the Worldwatch Institute in Washington, D.C.—to hear what he thought of the movie, which he saw at an advance screening.
So should we brace ourselves for another ice age?
"No, I don't think so. The scenario in the movie is fictional. Like some other Hollywood movies that claim to be based on true stories, there's a kernel of truth that is then pumped full of steroids and given cosmetic surgery."
Any particular aspects about the film that you liked?
"I liked how it used shots from space to give you a sense of how huge and powerful the climate really is. One of the key lessons of the film is that this is a very big, very complex system that we don't understand very well. Since we're conducting a giant experiment with this huge, complicated, poorly understood system, weird and unexpected stuff is probably going to happen.
I don't think anyone thinks abrupt climate change is likely any time soon, but the probability is not zero."

Scientists cannot predict earthquakes. Tornadoes seem to appear and disappear under certain climate conditions. Scientists cannot predict lottery numbers. My point is that shit happens and scientists really can't say that something like the movie won't happen. Look at his last statement.
I enjoyed watching this movie because it was entertainment. If I walked out of every movie believing what I saw, I'd be pretty stupid. I'd believe that I was just part of some computer Matrix, and if I pissed off the wrong girl she'd Kill Me. I'd believe that dogs and cats could talk, not to mention a pig named Babe. I'd also realize that Elvis, Ali, and Hannibal are all still alive. I'd believe that only Asian people can do martial arts and that in order to save the world, there must be Mortal Kombat.
All reviewers have to do is watch the movie, give a brief summary about it and tell people if they'd spend another $10 to see it, which would mean great; matinee price if it's good; demand money back if it's crap. It really isn't rocket science to review movies.
