*color me incredibly HAPPY*
In case you're interested and I'm sure you all are, Jay whopped up on me in Celeb Jep. The final score was $233, 900 for Jay and $223, 700 for moi. I was surprised at how smart Michael McKean aka Lenny of Lenny & Squiggy was and surprised by how little Martin Short seemed to know. Martin took every question in the Gub'ment section even though it was evident, he knew none of the answers. Why he wasted everyone's time--epecially mine cuz I was at least smart enough to admit I knew NOTHING--was beyond me.
Wow. I don't know who the dairy industry has hired to do their marketing campaigns, but they need to give them a raise. First we were told that milk "did a body good", and despite the fact that we have incredibly high numbers of people with osteoporosis, milk supposed makes our bones strong. (LOL! That's so stupid, it's funny.) THEN we were told that eating so many portions of dairy each day would help us lose weight, despite the fact that milk has tons of sugar in it and cheese has tons of fat in it. Now we're being fed a bill of goods that tells us dairy will lower our blood pressure. Why dairy SEEMS to lower your blood pressure is because it contains a lot of potassium, calcium and magnesium, the three ingredients that are crucial to keeping bp under control. Of course it would serve you better to just TAKE calcium, magnesium and potassium supplements, but the dairy people would have you think getting all those unneeded calories is the best way. Like I said, I don't know who is doing their marketing, but I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to hear them say drinking milk keeps you from getting cancer. Lord knows it SEEMS to do everything else.
I saw a news report this week about the undercover cops who killed an elderly woman in Atlanta while serving
a warrant at her house. The old, frail, pitiful woman wounded three narcotics agents and yet her niece was outraged that they fired back, killing her.
I guess cops should stop and take into consideration the age of the person shooting at them before they return fire.
After all, how much damage could one old woman with a loaded weapon cause?
I was reading a Good Housekeeping mag at work on Thanksgiving--hey, I SAID I was freaking bored!--and I had to laugh at Wynonna Judd's logic. She talked about losing some weight and how she wanted to reach the women in her audience who feel invisible and are ignored. THEN she went on to say she was designing a line of clothing that would go to size L, but was NOT a full sized line of clothing. Just what the size 3 women of the world need....another celeb clothing designer. And so much for Wy wanting to reach that woman that feels invisible. I found it really ironic that a full sized woman would discriminate against other full sized women by not making clothing they can wear. Who would better know what sort of clothing a larger woman wants than a larger woman?
Ok, I have a question for all of you. Now I'm going to ASSume you are ALL good tippers, say in the 15-20% range
IF service warrants. Now if you tip that much in a full service restaurant, do you also tip that much in a restaurant like Ryan's Steakhouse
where all they do is bring you rolls and your drink? I NORMALLY do, but I have this argument with FO #1 and Mr. G all the time.
They think I should only leave like $2 or $3 no matter how much the meal costs at Ryans because the waitress
doesn't do that much. I was ready to leave a nickel tip on Thanksgiving because she brought our drinks like 20 minutes
after we started eating and the restaurant wasn't that busy because there was only an hour until closing time. But it was Thanksgiving and I curbed my crankiness.
To be honest, I don't agree with ANY of this tipping bullshit. I think the restaurant should suck it up and pay minimum wage or whatever and I don't think the customers should have to supplement their employees incomes. Just like hairdressers. The chick that does my hair charges me $18 for a damn dry cut. Then I have to tip on top of that? Puhleeze.
