i'd like to be under the sea
<---How could I have forgotten THIS little gem yesterday? There's no place like gnome...
When did my Sunday comics turn into mini soap operas?! For Better or For Worse is total drama and boring bullshit. Cathy can't obsess about her weight any more if she tried. And what the hell is up with that damn Funky Winkerbean that they dropped into our paper recently? Please I know that if you cartoonists put your mind to it, you can make these comics way more depressing than they already are!!
Some of my friends told me about what good health results they got from putting a tsp. of sea salt in their drinking water. (tsp per gallon) So I decided to try it. Damn. It was like drinking an enema. So I cut it down to 1/2 tsp per gallon. Yuck. It is definitely an acquired taste. It makes my stomach feel odd. Not nauseated, but it just feels weird.
Hmm, I know infomercials always toss in extras, but the ad for the razor that throws in a Chef's knife is a bit odd. As if that wasn't funny enough, the offer for the razor that "lasts a lifetime" is buy one, get one free. If you only have one face and one lifetime, why do you need two razors?
I just saw a report on Headline News about how single women are leading child predators right to their kids by including info about the children in their online dating profiles. The investigator in the piece said that women should leave out any information about their kids and ESPECIALLY leave pics of the children out of their profiles.
Flipping channels Sunday, I heard more of "Scott Baio is 45 and Single." It's the same shit, different chick. Once again, he was asking another chick from his past what his problem was. It makes me laugh that they all tell him he was a cheating, lying, irresponsible scumbag, and after they get finished telling him what an absolute jerk he was, he says, "I'm trying to figure out what the flaw in me is...?" Apparently the arrogant, lying prick thing doesn't ring any bells for Scott.
Some of the graduates from Class 355 of the Los Angeles Sheriff's Academy posting on the Fox forum have really ruined The Academy for me. They're whiny and all pissed because they feel the show didn't portray them in a good light. Wow. A reality show that doesn't portray people in a flattering light. Can you imagine? Apparently they've never seen Hey, Paula. One condescending person said we were "living and breathing the show" and we weren't smart enough to realize it was edited for tv. Yeah, that would account for the big "DUH's" written on all of our foreheads. Another reminded us that the people in the show were real people, not "actors". Oh for Pete fucking sake. Another was all, "what if someone recognizes us in public? Our cover is blown." What freaking cover do they have? They're not in the James Bond Academy. Besides, the show airs on the Fox REALITY channel, not NBC. I know a ton of people who have never even HEARD of the station, let alone heard of the show. I can't believe how ungrateful they're being, though. Not one has been appreciative of the opportunity to be on television and part of a show that allows people to see what men and women go through in order to become deputy sheriffs. Hell, they aren't even grateful people are watching. If there's a season two of this show featuring a new class of recruits, I'm going to have to seriously think about whether or not I want to even watch it. Yeah, they've ruined it that much for me. One said they HAD to sign the waiver to be on tv. Nobody put a gun to their head. I'm sure they could have opted out of the class all together if they were that uncomfortable with the cameras being present.
