…the parrots begin to jabber

This is what Willis was talking about!

Wha had happened?

I got home late last night.  Mrs. Full Bug had American Idol paused on the TIVO so I picked it up when she got to the living room.  They were talking about the charity that the show was going to raise money for this year.  Several celebs were blah blahing about something then, The King of Pop himself said something.  I thought; “Wow, they got Mike to appear.  How’d they do that?”. 

[negative]  MFB said that it was Teri Hatcher.  No way!  I rewound it 2 or 3 times.  The chick (link) that got weirded out by Jerry Seinfield when she found out that he had Elaine spy on her in the sauna for him?  The chick from that Superman show?  This is nuts.  Check this (link) and see if you get the urge to hear some Dirty Diana? 

Is Katharine Hepburn the last actress that will allow herself to age gracefully and continue to act?

Goodbye to an American thinker. William F. Buckley (1925-2008)

Rest in peace, William

Just a small sample from Buckley:

“Back in the thirties we were told we must collectivize the nation because the people were so poor. Now we are told we must collectivize the nation because the people are so rich.” 

“There is an inverse relationship between reliance on the state and self-reliance.” 

“I would like to electrocute everyone who uses the word “fair” in connection with income tax policies.” 

“Liberals, it has been said, are generous with other peoples’ money, except when it comes to questions of national survival when they prefer to be generous with other people’s freedom and security.” 

“I mean to live my life an obedient man, but obedient to God, subservient to the wisdom of my ancestors; never to the authority of political truths arrived at yesterday at the voting booth.” 

“The majority of the senior class of Vassar does not desire my company and I must confess, having read specimens of their thought and sentiments, that I do not desire the company of the majority of the senior class of Vassar.” 

“Truth is a demure lady, much too ladylike to knock you on your head and drag you to her cave. She is there, but people must want her, and seek her out.”

Not new to this bandwagon (Link)

General bitching (kind of)

  • Please stop with the Jim Romeism.  I just had a conversation with a friend at work where he complained about “hockey fan”.  My brother used “Vol fan thinks that…” last weekend.  *(Points added right back for making fun of UT fans though)  Local sports radio uses this stupid phrase, line, word all the time.  This coyote has fallen off of the cliff while chasing the roadrunner.  Enough already! 
  • Bob Knight was fired from IU after a few decades of winning, a perfect season, National Championships, and a stellar graduation rate.  Two coaches later, they are no longer Indiana Basketball. (link)  Oh, and the man that fired Knight?  He’s now busy making sure no Indians are offended by 100 year old college mascots, Oklahoma and Ohio State are always ready to lose big BSC games, and women’s rowing teams have their sandwiches cut diagonally on long road trips since there are just too many money making men’s sports out there.
  • The NFL is bulletproof, Roger Goodell is a genius, and the Big 10 is still over-rated.  Bill Belichick tapes game time play signals, pregame warm-ups, practices, his neighbors cookouts, local theatre, and whatever else he wants, Goodell has the tapes destroyed, and is called to Capital Hill to splain himself.  This splaining will be to Senator Arlen Spector.  Oh, again, this splaining will be to Senator Arlen Spector while the three ring circus pulls up to town at the same hour in the form of the Clemens hearing.  So, Goodell looks at his schedule and decided Feb 13 would be a good day to meet with Pennsylvania’s answer to Grandpa Simpson.  Oh, and the Big 10 is always over-rated.  You can never say that enough.     

I’ve got to go.  Going to get some coffee before me and Redwing fan go to our sales team’s meeting.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me about 20 times, I must be the Atlanta Falcons.

Federal judge rules Vick can keep more than $16 million in bonus money

Good.  The Atlanta Falcons deserve it.  Understand that this is coming from a guy that grew up with a Steve Bartkowski poster in his room.  I was a Falcons fan.  No more.  I haven’t been for a while now.  Now this?  Why are people going nuts that Vick is getting to keep the money?  Are the Atlanta Falcons shocked that Vick is sitting in a prison and his team went 4-12 last year?  They drafted this thug, looked the other way at the pot busts, encouraged the gang member entourage to not “make Vick do things ” he wouldn’t normally do, and issued an apology for misunderstood their QB when he flipped off the fans that willingly allow Arthur Blank extort their money for this guy.  

Pay up, boys.  This is what you wanted.

Ever wonder what is inside a 6 year old little girl’s purse?

Hootie’s purse
Essential stuff
Kind of a six year old version of her Mom’s purse.
