OMG. I think my husband might be dying. I pointed out that Staples had a Compaq Presario laptop for only $399 to replace the desktop computer and he said, “If you want to, take the money out of the bank and buy one.” I was completely out of my element when he said that. My mouth kept moving, but nothing was coming out. I had the prefect cajoling speech all ready for nothing! It’s crazy, I tells ya!
I think, though, that I’m going to go with another desktop because I don’t want to pay $300 for insurance & service. With a desktop, I can take it to be repaired or even have a guy come to the house. Last time I did that, he didn’t charge me that much. But with a laptop, I’m almost forced to buy a service contract. Staples also had a desktop for only $429 and that actually included the damn monitor. So many Gateway offers don’t include a monitor. This has a 320 gig hdd and 1 gig memory with a 17”monitor. That’s not too bad, but I’m going to check Gateway because I really like their products.
ABC SUCKS!!! Other than COPS, there aren’t many tv shows I watch on a consistent basis. Over the last couple of years, I’ve picked up two shows that I DO watch regularly: Men In Trees (last year) and Eli Stone (this year). ABC fucked around with the scheduling of MIT and twice they yanked it without warning for several months. This morning Alex sent me an email giving me the good news: ABC is canceling MIT. THIS after they finally began running it consistently for several weeks in a row. Thanks, ABC, YOU BLOW.
Overtime Hawg left her National Enquirer at work, so I was reading it this afternoon. Apparently Star Jones and her husband Allegedly Big Gay Al would have split their assets had they stayed married for five years. Now why would any INTELLIGENT woman agree to a stupid plan like that? She was making mucho grande money when they married and Al was making zip, so it’s not like SHE stood to make any money on the deal. It was all one sided. Any gold digging man worth his salt could put up with a woman they weren’t attracted to for five years to make a huge chunk of change, which explains why Al and Federline couldn’t do it. I think Al would have gladly gutted it out if Mrs. Allegedly Big Gay Al hadn’t given him the boot first.
The Enquirer is alleging that Bobbi Kristina Brown slashed her wrists. Come on. Her parents are Bobby Brown and Whitless. Aha! Suddenly the slashing is perfectly understandable behavior. I couldn’t help but laugh when I read this, “Bobbi Kristina has been running around drinking and partying, doing what she wants to do.” Hmm, let me think, who does that sound like? Oh, yeah, MOM AND DAD.
Oh! And Susan Smith, the woman who drowned her two sons in her car, then claimed she had been carjacked, has a lesbian lover in prison. Well, duh. There are only two types of ‘lovers’ in prison: your have your lesbian lover or the prison guard you’re sucking off through the bars of your cell door in exchange for cigarettes. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to watch some prison porn…
