Save Broadway

Just saw this and figured I'd sahre it with you all. Enjoy!

Disney conservative

I'm a big fan of Disney, or I used to be when it stood for something other than over hyping overrated tween "stars". I miss the days of Mickey and the gang, animated movies that were *GASP* hand drawn, and classic Disney programming on Disney channel.

This weekend, the Disney folks are letting their 3 Satanic spawns, the Jonas Brothers (don't get me started on that mess they called performing with the living legend, Stevie Wonder, because that was just demeaning for Stevie) release some kind of concert film. Many of my students are 15-16yr old females and the mere mention of these boys makes them wet their panties. I don't understand the fascination.

I've listened to their music and while it isn't the greatest in the world, nor is it my cup of tea, it doesn't suck. However, because they are part of the Disney tween movement, they are being made out to be the next coming of The Rolling Stones or something, when in actuality, they're just another boy bad whose probably won't last. I'd say they wouldn't, but they are brothers, after were the Jacksons...but these boys don't have anyone as charismatic as Michael was.

So, by now you're wondering what's up with the title, am I right? Well, one of the girls who was dripping wet at the mention of these over hyped adolescents said I need to come out of the dark ages and stop being such a Disney conservative.

If being a Disney conservative means I don't want to be bombarded with Hannah Montana and the Jonas Bros, as well as the lack of true Disney programming on the Disney channel,then I'll gladly accept the title. I'm sure I'm not the only one.


Last night, the little woman and I went to a friend's house for dinner and ended up going to a karaoke bar. That wasn't that big of a deal. Our hostess is a very attractive woman, but she decided to wear sandals last night.

I'm not one to talk about another person's hygiene, because you never know what kind of personal issues they may have, but there comes a point when some things just must be addressed.

Toenails should not be long, especially if you're going to wear sandals or any other type of open toes shoes. It just isn't right. Especially when you have yellow, talon like nails!

A couple of guys at the bar came up to me and asked about her, then they looked down and saw her feet. I can imagine that was a huge turnoff. Poor girl could have had her pick of just about any guy there last night, but went home alone (not counting us), all because of her bad hygiene. I didn't want to be rude, but I so wanted to pull her aside and tell her to do something before we go out again next month. Maybe someone else who isn't as nice as I will tell her, or she'll figure it out on her own.

Now, I will say, she has a killer voice. I'm not saying she should be recording albums or anything, but she's got some talent (and talons).

Don't they learn anything at home?

So, today I was sitting behind the desk filling out paperwork. I swear I felt like a Gorgon (if you've read and/or seen Hitch hiker's Guide to the Galaxy you'll know what I'm, talking about, if not shame on you, go read/rent it and learn yourself something). Anyway...this kid, who's obviously headed toward a future in something art, comes up to me and asks me who was the Pink Panther.

Now, I'm not ancient or a matter of fact Pink Panther was actually before my time, but I've seen plenty of episodes to know about him. It does bring into I that old? My niece and nephew know about Pink Panther but only because they have Boomerang, but this kid was a senior and didn't know about the Pink Panther.

Man, I just felt old. He did know about the Jetsons and the Flintstones, and even Speed Racer (probably because of the movie), though. So, perhaps he just thought it was something gay since he's pink. I dunno.

Isn't it amazing? Today's cartoons consist of Spongebob, Fairly OddParents, Kim Possible, and a bunch of others that will drift away into oblivion. Whilst the 'toons that I grew up on (He-Man, Transformers, Ducktales, G.I. Joe, Smurfs) all have a place in history. But the generations before have the ones with the most tenure (Scooby Doo, Pink Panther, Looney tunes, Mickey Mouse). Guess it just goes to show how times change.

Goodbye Horses

I love doing these things, and Candy over at One Step Up just gave me a reason to do Keep in mind I have 4649 songs on my player. That's not counting the other list I have with my jazz, musicals, and TV themes. What can I say, music is my life! Hope you enjoy!

This si what you get for going on a reality show

I'm no fan of reality television. As a matter of fact, I think its a waste of airtime and a cop out for networks who are too cheap to pay for real, scripted shows. Having said that, there are a few that I will willingly watch such as Hell's Kitchen, Supernanny, The Girls Next Door and Wife Swap. (I don't consider American Idol and other competition shows reality).

The first time I happened to catch Wife Swap, was totally by accident. Ever since then, I haven't been hooked, but rather, it kills time until something better comes on. Occasionally they do have an interesting pair of couples, though. Unfortunately, each show seems to have the same formula.

I'm sure many of you have heard about this guy that was ona few weeks ago who thought he was better than America and really caused a controversy with his statements. Since his appearance on the show, hate groups have been started on Facebook, his ans his wife's businesses have suffered (I believe he was an art dealer or something and she is a life coach), his life has been threatened, and his rant has become a Youtube sensation. Obviously, he exaggerated for the cameras, but one has to wonder how much was exaggerated.

I heard last week that he was looking to sue the show and the network for defamation of character or something like that. I don't believe he went through with that since I haven't heard anything else about it.

Basically, this guy has his panties in a wad because he said some things on TV and people didn't agree with his views and got pissed off. I don't agree with his actions or statements, but this is America and he is free to express himself. However, if you go on a show like that and do/say something controversial, you better be ready to accept the backlash. As a matter of fact, I'm pretty sure they had him sign some contract stating he was willing to accept said backlash.

*SIGH* This guy gives liberals a bad name. Here are some excerpts from the episode.
Feel free to throw things at the screen(but don't break your computer).

I do wonder, if he hates the US so much, why did he become a citizen?
Now, his wife and the other husband aren't exactly model citizens, either, but at least they accepted change and didn't degrade each other or the country, not to mention brainwash the children into ignoring the other wife.

Ugh! Just watching this thing again is frustrating!

The internet is for porn

Yeah, I bet you read that title and are thinking I'm some kind of sick perv, or you're thinking I stole it from the song in Avenue Q.

Anyway, I did the pastime of thinking and came up with this query...what is porn? I'm not gonna sit here and look it up, but I've always known it to be something that we have pleasure viewing that is out of our league.

A good example is weather porn. I caught some highlights of the Pro Bowl from the other weekend and every shot they showed before they got the what was happening in the game was based on the beach, or the trees, or something tropical like that. For those of us that live in non-tropical places this can be considered weather porn, especially when its cold weather here.

Music is my porn by my definition (and the little woman). Wanna make something of it? Bring it on. lol Seriously, as much time as I spend watching videos, downloading, writing, listening, and playing music, I'm surprised I haven't desensitized myself to

I'm sure there are other forms of porn that we never realized. This just popped in my head this morning when I was looking through some music stuffs. The things I can come up with when I get to thinking, huh? lol

I'm sure I'm not the only one

Many of us out here in the blogosphere use Blogger for our blogging purposes, however in the past few days Google, who runs/sponsors the service has made some changes. The most annoying, for lack of a better word, is that they apparently don't acknowledge anonymous followers.

This isn't such a big deal, but if you're like me and saw that the number of followers you have drastically dropped you freaked. I know I was wondering if I said something wrong, or if folks were just tired of my blog or something. I mean, I know this isn't the most interesting blog in the world or anything, but I tend to stay away from controversial things unless its something I'm passionate about.

*SIGH* I know this isn't a big deal, but what are the blogger/google people thinking this is going to do other than annoy folks? I would really like to know! It makes no sense to me. None at all, I tell you!

Eye Candy 2/22

Female Hottie: Shannon Elizabeth

Our first hottie is best known for her memorable role as Nadia in the first two American Pie movies. Who can forget her stripping in the bedroom? I know I can't. Since then she's gone on to have a relatively modest career, but you can't deny her hotness. She has a nice body, long legs, and smile to die for. Of course she is a little klutzy, as she proved when she was on Dancing With the Stars.

Male Hottie: Gerard Butler

This week's male hottie was suggested by a friend for last week, but I had already chosen Jude Law, so I just had him penciled in for this week. I don't know much about Gerard other than he's been in a lot more movies than I realized, such as 300, Phantom of the Opera, Nim's Island, Dracula 2000, Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life and P.S. I Love You, just to name a few. Hope you ladies enjoy!

Random Hottie from a movie or TV show seen this week: Eliza Dushku

Currently starring in the new Fox series Dollhouse, Eliza is, in my opinion, one of the most underrated actresses in terms of both her talent and beauty. She has had steady work throughout her career, including stints on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, not to mention her numerous film roles. She earns this spot for her role in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

MILF: Jenny McCarthy

Jenny started her career as a Playboy model, then went on to host MTV's Singled Out. Since then, she's had various guest roles on many shows, most recently Chuck. She is the mother of an autistic child and has written a book about the experience, Mother Warriors: A Nation of Parents Healing Autism Against All Odds. I must say, Jim Carey is a lucky man!

Retro/classic Hottie: Shirley Jones

Shirley Jones is bets known as the matriarch of the Patridge Family, but before she started her TV career she had many film musical roles. I;m most familiar with her as Marian the librarian in The Music Man. At 74 years young, she's still alive and kicking. I read that she was making an appearance on Days of Our Lives but I don't know how long that was supposed to last. She's also working on her autobiography and a greatest hits album.

Ripped couch

I really need to watch how I sit down. Last night, as I was sitting down on the couch, somehow I caught the pillow on the back just right and ripped it clear out from the couch itself!! AAARRRRGGGHHH!!! And we just got this thing from the little woman's mother (used, of course). Oh well, at least it's not broken or anything, just needs a little patch job. I just feel so guilty for ripping it, though, y'know?

Let me know!

One of my favorite movies of all time is The Magnificent Seven, so you can imagine my elation when I'm flipping through the channels this morning and come across the movie airing on AMC. Its on right now as a matter of fact. Unfortunately, it's nearly half over. GRRR!!!

I guess I need to go to the website and see if they have some sort of updates about when movies come on. Who knows what other gems could be coming on that I'm missing.

In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy the rest of M7.

Laissez Bon Temp Roulez

For those of you that can't translate French, the title means "Let the Good Times Roll". With Mardi Gras coming up next week, and a slew of parades in the next few days, not to mention a nice 3 day vacation that I more than need.

I've heard talk over the past few years about making Mardi Gras a national holiday. Now, as happy as I would be to have another national holiday, as Sara over at News from Nola brought up in a post last week or so, Mardi Gras is one of the few things that we down here in Louisiana can call our own (even if it was originally a French celebration...not going to go into the whole history, though).

In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy my days off from work, and then figure out what I'm going to give up for Lent. Don't really have a clue this year. I'm sure I'll figure out something. Any suggestions?

For those of you not in La (I think there are only like 2 or 3 of you that are down here), have fun being (he says as if he's going to be partying it up in New Orleans)

That's so gay

How many of us have said the phrase "That's so gay" or "That's gay", or something along those lines? Well, a student was complaining about an assignment I gave today and another one started the discussion, why can't we say "that's so Straight" or "that's so bi" lol

Gave me a bit of a chuckle and I figured I'd share. Hope you're all having a good day!

Shades of gray

As time passes we hair turns from its natural color to that of gray or silver. For some of us it happens earlier than other.

This weekend, I cut my hair. Trust me, it was LONG overdue for a cut and when it was done, I noticed no bald spot *whew*, no receding hairline *double whew*, but a couple of clusters of silver around the sideburn area.

On top of that, there are a few strands starting to poke out of my goatee. Guess its time to acknowledge that age is catching up with me. I do wonder why they weren't obvious before I cut my hair, though. Oh well, time to get Just for

Eye Candy 2/15

Female Hottie: Katy Perry

This week's female hottie is responsible for one of the catchiest songs in recent memory, and, although you can't really tell from this picture, she is said to have the most perfect breasts in the music business. Recently she was nominated for a Grammy, although she didn't win, here's hoping it's not her last nomination and that we see lots more of her. Anyone else notice the resemblance to Zooey Deschanel?

Male Hottie: Jude Law

Apparently, British men are the rage. Last week, I gave you Gordon Ramsay and this week I bring you Jude Law. While it seems as if he has fallen off the map, it wasn't that long ago that it seemed that he was in every movie that came out. Hope you girls enjoy Mr. Law.

Random Hottie from a movie or TV show seen this week: Alyson Hannigan

Currently starring on the CBS sitcom (yes they still have those)How I Met Your Mother, Alyson is best known for her role as Michelle, the flute toting band geek from American Pie. As a matter of fact, she earns this spot for that role in American Wedding. She's soon to be a mother, and dare I say it, MILF. I'm sure she'll make a return appearance in the MILF category in the future.

MILF: Rachel Weisz

Rachel Weisz is best known for playing Evy in The Mummy and The Mummy Returns. The father of her son still hasn't married her, but they are engaged. Wouldn't you want to wake up next to this every morning? I know I would!

Classic/Retro Hottie: Suzanne Somers

This week's retro hottie is best known as Chrissy from Three's Company. since her role ended on that show she has been selling the Thigh Master, writing diet books, and even returned to television in the sitcom Step By Step. Currently, she is selling stuff on one of the shopping networks. Other than a tad bit of natural aging, she still looks the same as she did back in her heyday.

today is Feb 14...

I know some of you are totally against this holiday, while others look forward to it as much as Xmas or their birthday, and then there are those like me who are neutral on the whole thing, but to all of my readers and visitors, I want to wish you a

Since when

What do you think of when think of sports? Football, basketball, baseball, hockey? Maybe even cheer leading, NASCAR, etc, right? So, will someone please tell me why the dog show is getting covered on ESPN?

This is not a sport. It's just some prissy little bitches and bastards (literally) trotting around for some stuffed shirt judges who grade them on some off the wall crap. What's next? Miss Teen USA being covered by ESPN2?

I'm no dog lover. As a matter of fact, I can't stand them, but this is not a biased blog. A dog show is not sport. Poker is more of a sport than this mess.

For that matter, if they MUST show this, then why not show a cat show. I'm tired of the infatuation with dogs in this country while cats get walked on. It's speciesism!

Damn! Where is the cat's Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, or other leaders to speak out for them? Hello?!? Tony the Tiger? Sylvester? Garfield? Heathcliff? C'mon guys! Cats of the world need a voice!

They took it

If you will recall last month I posted here that an unknown party had reported my grandfather's car to the police and I was given 30 days to movie it because it was a "nuisance" due to the fact that it was just sitting there. you can read the entire blog here.

Well, we tried to contact the police and get the situation resolved, but it seems as if they weren't taking our calls and Wednesday they came and took it. Apparently, they came at 10 am. Kind of an odd time to come, seeing as how both myself and the Little woman were at work.

To make it worse, when we called to find out what happened, lo and behold, they answered the phone! WTF?!? Doesn't this sound bit fishy to you?

So, it's $14/day for each day they have it, not to mention towing fees, and it still has to be proven that it runs. UGH!!! I so wish I knew who made this anonymous report, and make them pay for all this.

Talked to a friend of mine the other day though, and he gave me some sage advice, which was to not get mad, since that is more than likely what they want. I'm trying not to, but this is my inheritance we're talking about here. Yes, I don't drive the car anymore, but it has sentimental value.

I will be glad when this whole situation is over, that's for sure.

Prom time

One of the joys of being a teacher is all the stuff I have to chaperon (note the sarcasm). Apparently, I now get the joy of chaperoning prom. Now, I really don't remember either of my proms having chaperons, just the Oh well, I guess there are worse things I could have been volunteered for such as early morning bus duty or monitoring state testing. Now that I think abut it, prom isn't so bad. I may even have fun...or not. We'll see in a couple of months.

Everything falls apart

I'm sure I'm not alone with this sentiment, but have you ever noticed that things seem to fall apart at the most inopportune time? For example, I just had to shell out $512 to get my chimney replaced because it was rotted out (according to the roofers...something to do with the roof wouldn't take or get insured until the chimney was replaced) Luckily, the whole complex had to pay the same price, so that wasn't too bad in terms of it wasn't just me. The dryer started acting funky...thought maybe I was going to have to either start washing clothes here and then go to a washeteria to dry them. Haven't been to one of those since college! Oh, and there's still that little matter of these petty elitist wanting to get my grandfather's car moved because it's a public nuisance. We finally got the hood up. The battery is dead as a doornail and can't be charged (according to Auto Zone), one of the belts is broken, and the latching mechanism for the hood is broken (which is why it wouldn't open).

*SIGH* I may have to call Mommy and Daddy and beg for some help. No that I read all this, it sounds like its worse than it is, the big thing is the roof and of course the car thing, which I jut need to prove the car starts, so getting a new battery is priority, then as time goes on, the rest of the issues can be fixed.

So, have any of you had similar experiences where everything starts to fall apart at the same time? C'mon, you know you have!

I really hate to miss my shows

So, last night, President Barack Obama gave his first prime time press conference. I didn't care to watch it. As a matter of fact, I was quite agitated that he chose that time to hold it. Because of his conference thingy, I was deprived of this week's episode of Chuck!!!

I realize that what he had to say was more important and all, just a little disappointing that I had to miss my show is all, especially since NBC has something against reruns these days.

Speaking of the president, from what I've heard, he was something his predecessor never was, coherent and spoke in compete sentences! *GASP* Sometime today, I'll see if I can catch up on what he actually had to day...but I'm still not happy he cut in on Chuck, though.

Musical Monday

With Valentine's Day coming up this weekend, I figured I better put something a little love themed up this week, and with people clamoring for more 80s here, I put the two together. Hope you enjoy "Power of Love" by Huey Lewis & the News!

Eye Candy 2/8

Female Hottie: Vanessa Minnillo

Vanessa Minnillo is best known as being a former host of MTV's TRL and for being a Cover Girl (or some other brand of makeup) model. Currently she is getting her acting career off the ground and is dating Jessica Simpson's ex, Nick Lachey. I think the man traded up!

Male Hottie: George Clooney

Everyone knows George Clooney. Personally, he's another guy that I don't understand the infatuation with, but hey, I'm not female or gay, so that may be the reason. Rumor has it that he'll be returning to ER for the season finale, or at least one of the final episodes. I can imagine more than a few of you will be tuning in to see him.

Random Hottie from a movie or TV show seen this week: Thora Birch

Thora Birch is perhaps best known for her role in American Beauty, but she has had a fairly decent career. As you can tell, she's not half bad looking, either. This spot belongs to her for the role she played in Dungeons & Dragons.

MILF: Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon has been dubbed the next Meg Ryan because she has often been cast in romantic comedies, much in the same way Meg Ryan was at the height of her popularity. However, Reese has also spread out into dramas and directing/producing films, making her a triple threat. Jake Gylenahaal is a lucky man. What was Ryan Philippe thinking? He and Reese have 2 children. I'd say she's quite the delectable MILF, don't you think?

Classic/Retro Hottie: Sophia Loren

Sophia Loren is known for her natural curves and beauty. Traits that Hollywood seems to have forgotten in the day of plastic surgery and Botox. With a career that has spanned over 50 years, at 74 years young, she's still alive and kicking. Look for her in the upcoming film, Nine

A little girl's fascination

Part of my job as an educator requires me to make trips to visit and observe other teachers in the area. Yesterday was one of those days.

Nothing unusual happened yesterday. The typical boring class stuff, complete with me having to write down everything I saw and compile it into a report...and to think I thought when I got my degree, I wouldn't have to do any more work like

So, anyway, in almost every class there would be at least 1 little girl who would lock her gaze on me and watch every move I would make. I wonder if I had gained a few fans. It sure seemed like it, but I could be wrong. Chances are, it was probably just the novelty of having someone new in the room.

Too bad it wasn't a fascination, though. Not to sound bad or creepy or anything, but if I was still in high school, I wouldn't have minded going out with them.

Well, I have to go back out there Monday, so I'll see if the gaze is still there. I should be able to determine whether it's a crush or a novelty glance.

What do you think it could be?

UGGGHHH!!!! I missed free food!!!!

I saw these commericals for free breaks fast at Denny's that was happening yesterday. When I saw the comerical, I assumed there was some catch. Apparently, I was wrong. It's some sort of marketing campaign for Denny's, though. I don't think I've ever had Denny' least not that I can remember, but IHOP is supposed to do the same thing on Feb 24...ALL DAY!!!!

MMMMMMMmmm....Pancakes!!!! --drools--

I know the lines are gonna be ridiculous. From what I've seen and heard about yesterday, it was pretty bad.

What a week

This has got to go down in history as one of the worst weeks for my friends. One of them had the misfortune of celebrating the 3rd anniversary of the passing of her husband, on top of having the flu and her son nearly choking to death on a pencil. Yes, I said a pencil. He likes to sharpen them down real low and for some reason he had put it in his mouth and managed to nearly swallow it. Luckily the doctors got it out, but that was a bad day, for sure. Don't you just love Mondays?

Another friend found out she was pregnant. This would be a good thing, except she's still in school and getting ready to enlist in the Air Force, not to mention not being married. She hasn't been to the doctor yet, though, so its not official, and until she can afford insurance, she probably won't be going.

As bad as those days were, another of my friends has had to have had the worst of it all. She lost her mother yesterday afternoon. This is really taking its toll on her, especially since her mother had cancer that they did not detect until it was too late. She was really close to her mom, too.

Hopefully, this isn't a pattern and other people in my life don't continue with this bad week pattern! Not sure I could handle it.

Back to business

As you all know, I was sick with the flu last week. It took alot out of me, and for a good portion of the sickness I felt like an invalid. Now that I'm back up and moving around and back at work, I feel great. I'm not 100% back to normal yet, though. Still getting my strength least enough to get back on track with my push up challenge. Let me tell ya, that drained me more than it normally does when I did them this Anyways, I just wanted to inform all of my readers out there that I will return to regular blogging and dropping tomorrow, so just hang in there and thanks for all of your care, concern, and prayers.

The long offseason

I don't know about you, but Sunday's Super bowl was one of the best games I've seen in my lifetime. I was captivated from the opening kickoff to the final drive. Seems not that long ago that every game was a blowout (as a Bronco fan, I was often cheering on the wrong end of those beat downs). I'm ecstatic that the Steelers won, though, and have to tip my hat to the Arizona Cardinals with an amazing season they've had this year.

Now, the long offseason begins. Well, there's still the Pro Bowl next week, but other than that, football fans are left to listen to rumors about whose going where, draft stuff, and all the negative publicity that will come from players being out at night. Am I the only who notices how the never cover any good news about players until a big game?

So, until August, I have the NBA (GO SPURS!!!) and college basketball to hold me over. After they end, though, comes the dreaded dead time until the beginning of the college season (or high school...whichever comes first).

Eye Candy 2/1

Female Hottie: Serena Williams

Serena is the first athlete to appear here in the eye candy series. Over the weekend she recently captured her 10th Grand Slam Title as well as a doubles title with sister, Venus. On top of her tennis, she's also has her own fashion line and dabbles a bit in acting.

Male Hottie: Gordon Ramsay

Last year, I remember watching Chef Ramsay's show Kitchen Nightmares, and noticing how just about every woman on there was all but drooling over him, so with the return of Hell's Kitchen this week, I figure why not let him have this spot. If you don't like it, you can take it up with him. I'm sure he'll just tell you to "Piss off!" lol

Random Hottie from a movie or TV show seen this week: Jena Malone

I first became aware of Jena Malone when I watched the movie Saved. She's not quite a household name or anything, but she is a very talented actress, although she does seem to be typecast in the Catholic School girl role. I couldn't escape her this week, so she earns this spot for her appearances in The Dangerous Lives of Alter Boys and Donnie Darko.

MILF: Mira Sorvino

Mira is one of the handful of actor's children who has stepped out of their parent's shadow and forged their own career. With roles in such films as Mimic, Quiz Show, Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion and the recent TV movie The Last Templar she has made quite a name for herself. She also has 2 children which make her a MILF!

Classic/reto Hottie: Morgan Fairchild

Morgan is bet known for her prominent roles in the 70s and 80s. She has consistently been working since she first appeared in 1967 and many may remember her as Chandler's mom on Friends. On top of all this, she's only 58 (not sure how old the picture is, though).
