Big shout-out to Juicy Fruit.

THANKS for stopping by!

I've been hiding out in the house this past week. I have some work to do but have been putting it off. It was buffet central in Vegas and my parents had these comps for restaurants! I feel like I should spend a little time at the gym, but then again, it is the holidays and I love food.

My drive home was long. Are people really so stupid that they don't know that the right lane is for slow traffic? And why do people brake when there's no one in front of them? I was getting a little annoyed with some of the drivers. I drove down the strip one last time which was a big mistake. It took me 45 minutes to make it to the freeway. Then, it took me 2 hours before I reached the city of Primm. Everyone was leaving and I should have stayed until Tuesday.

I took pictures of a lot of the architecure of the hotels. Where else but Vegas can one visit Paris, New York, and Italy, all in one day. There was still much more I could have done, like shoot the strip at night. Maybe next time because I don't mind the drive. It's not as bad as I thought it was going to be.

Christmas is over. It never really felt like it was here. I spent it this year in Las Vegas. That town has grown so much. The last time I was there was in 1991. It is so different. Two of my favorite shows are CSI and Las Vegas, however, I didn't see any of the beautiful people in those shows anywhere on the strip or in the hotels.

Only three days left till Christmas. The season came quickly. I'm heading out to Vegas today. And even though it sounds like fun, I'm missing Hawaii right now. There's just something about walking around in shorts 24/7. I caught a preview of Being Bobby Brown last night, and watched a couple of minutes of the show. It's really sad to see how stupid Whitney Houston has become. She reminds me of one of those loud and obnoxious black women who have money, but have to act out in order for people to notice them. And Bobby looks like a wife beating black man that's been seen on the news. It's ghetto trash with money.

They remind me of Brittney and Kevin. I feel sorry for the children. I wouldn't people to see how my parents act, especially these two. Houston once had a beautiful voice, but she sounds like a chain smoker who drinks gin, watches soap operas, and spends money...sort of like real life.

An Australian woman has learned the hard way why there are safety barriers at zoos. Authorities said a lion at the Melbourne Zoo bit off the tip of the woman's finger and ate it after she climbed over a barrier next to the animal's cage to pick flowers. The zoo's director said visitors are asked to stay behind the safety barriers. The lion apparently bit the woman from inside its cage, even though she was outside. The attack was the second in a month by a big cat at the zoo. Last month, a Persian leopard reached through a wire fence and badly scratched a 9-year-old boy who had climbed over a safety barrier.

If you are stupid enough to ignore the safety barrier, than you get what you deserve.

In memory of Wendy Jo Sperber 1958-2005

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Actress Wendie Jo Sperber, who starred opposite Tom Hanks on TV's "Bosom Buddies" and who in his words became "a walking inspiration" after she contracted cancer, has died. She was in her 40s.

This chick was not an A-List star. I'm not sure if she was even a B-List star, but she was funny in whatever movies she was in.

What is wrong with people who have to constantly validate themselves in the world? There's a woman I work with who always turns the conversation around herself. You could be talking to someone else about your Thanksgiving holiday and then she will include herself and say, 'Well, at my Thanksgiving..." She does this constantly. She puts her 2 cents into every conversation...however, she couldn't say much about Hawaii...but she changed the subject to bring it around to herself.

Then there's this other woman that was just hired, and she too has to talk about herself. She has told me several times already about how she will be completing her masters next year. She brought this up during my conversation with the couselor about a student. Turned the whole conversation around to her and what she was doing, but then she said, "Sorry to butt into your conversation." No you weren't, you self-absorbed bitch! I had to get out of the office as soon as possible because she started telling the counselor about her master's program.

The following article caught my eye and would be a welcomed alternative in the public school system.

Conn. Students Get Fines for Cursing
Thursday, December 01, 2005

HARTFORD, Conn. — Bad words are costing some students in Connecticut, $103 each.

Police officers assigned to Hartford Public and Bulkeley high schools have fined about two dozen students for cursing in a new program to curtail unruly behavior. The joint effort by school and police officials targets students who swear while defying teachers and administrators.

"We're sending a message to the parents and to the teachers," said Sandy Cruz-Serrano, senior adviser to Superintendent of Schools Robert Henry. "We are trying to bring back order to the schools."

Parents are required to pay the fines if the students cannot.
