Karaoke on National Television

It has been a week since I have posted anything. Sigh, maybe some of you have heard that the Astros did not make it into the World Series. Maybe next year, sigh. Pettite will hopefully be back and even though I doubt that Beltran will stay with us, as we all know money talks and right now the Yankees are screaming, I think that we have enough momentum to carry us into the next season. Ok, the book is closed on the whole Astros business. I will talk about them again next season.

Last week I celebrated my one year blog-o-versary. Yippie for me!!

Not Cool Beans - to Saturday Night Live. For some reason my husband finds it necessary to TiVo Saturday Night Live. I always get upset when I see that little green light on between 10:30 to midnight on Saturdays because I find it a waste of my hard drive space, but this past Saturday TiVoing it came in handy. I was doing some eBaying while my husband saw the humorless show (his time not mine) and I joined him at the end just in time to see Ashlee Simpson apologize to the audience for a mistake her band made. I quickly told J.R. to rewind to see what had happened. OMG, I felt so embarrassed for the girl. I mean, I thought the girl had no talent, but for her to confirm it in national television was a dream come true. For those who do not know what happened, or what didn't, here is the news

But, why is everyone speaking up against Ashlee when SNL has always said that they only allow "LIVE" shows on their show? I am beginning to wonder what they mean by live. Boo, hoo to SNL. They all knew she was going to lip-sync and they allowed it to happen.

Baseball Talk

Sorry guys I have been ignoring my blogging duties lately, I do not mean to, but it seems that this baseball business has gotten the best of me.

A few days ago I was going to blog about the, once again, downfall of the Red Sox, but they have proved me wrong...good for them!! Yes, I have not only been staying up late watching the Astros play, but also the Red Sox. Why the Red Sox you ask...well, we used to live up in BeanTown and my daughter, Baby Girl, is a native Bostonian. They must put something in the water because, I swear, her first’s words were mama, dada, and Red Sox. Every time I go up to Boston she asks me to bring her a Red Sox dress, T-Shirt, or hat, her last request were for Red Sox socks (yeah, try saying that real fast several times), but I could not find any that would fit her.

I really hope the World Series does not come down to the Red Sox vs. the Astros because I don't know if my husband would like to see, or could take, our daughter cheering for the other team. Well, at the same time it could be entertaining!

Well, that is pretty much ALL I have been up to lately. I hope to come back to my regularly or irregularly posting schedule as soon as the Astros win the World Series.

Ok, here is a pic of the cutest Red Sox fan.

I Need to Get a Life

I guess I need to get a life and start blogging about other things aside from the Astros. I would LOVE for them to make it to the World Series, but they are struggling. The Cardinals are an awesome team and they hit incredibly. If we are able to get past the Cardinals we will have an easier time with the Yankees or Red Sox. Ok, that is it for that.

Last week I started watching a new show on ABC called Life As We Know It. Believe me, I am not one to get hooked on an teen drama (is that what they are called?), but this show is pretty good.

I am so looking for Arrested Development to start. The season will begin on Nov. 7th.

Baseball or Presidential Debate???

Huh, actually not a though choice. I am thinking the third presidential debate will be a repeat of number 1 and 2...Same old record that skips at the same places.

I instead will be watching the first game of the Astros against St. Louis and I am thinking a lot of people will do the same.

As of now, I don't know who will win (ha, ha, double meaning), but I am pulling and cheering for the Astros. As for the presidential race, well, if they had the wives speak I am sure the Bush team will win hands down because every time I see Kerry's wife she seems either drunk, disoriented, or deeply sedated. I say let the women go at it. It would be a lot more interesting. Wasn't there a wives debate a few elections back?? I think it was Dole's wife vs. Hillary. I think.

Anyway, the game starts at 7pm on Fox and the debate will be at 8pm on every other station. Go Astros!!!

Way to go


My So-So Weekend

On Friday, I headed to the Flying Saucer to meet the other Houston Tiaras. The event is always a lot of fun, because it lets us, first, put faces with names and, secondly, it lets us catch up with each other. There is always something new and exciting going on that you have not read about. Congrats to Cybertoad on all her weight loss and to I Don't Think on her upcoming nuptials. See how much fun it is!!! Pics link to Cybertoad's site.

On Saturday, we hung out and saw the awesome Astros kick some Atlanta a*s. GO 'Stros.

On Sunday, we actually went to the game. Let me just say this, there were 5 seconds at the surprising ending of the game were no body moved, there was just silence and looks of disbelieve. I felt so bad for J.R. He is a die hard Astros fan and I had gotten him tickets for Sundays game because I thought that we were going to win, we did have the home field advantage after all. After the loss there was sadness every where. The fact that we had a couple of Atlanta's fans in our section did not help matters much, but it was good for some comic relief. Some of them were quiet, while another hackled and fought with the drunken Astros fans, not always a good move. To say the least that Atlanta fan ended up leaving early.

Today is another day...Go Astros!!!!

Wet Beans in Florida

I am in Chicago today. Well, I was here yesterday and will be here tomorrow, anyway, I went to the local grocery story to buy some water and guess what I found?! Donald Trump has his own brand of water. It is called Trump Ice and the label is cheesy as hell. Why is he going into water anyway? Isn't that market over saturated (no pun intended) ;)

I have decided to create a "Cool Beans!" or "NOT Cool Beans!" section, it is pretty much just like the Jeers and Cheers in the TV Guide, but I decide to come up with my own titles. Ok, the first entry...

Cool Beans! - To the owner of the land right next to the Women's Federal Prison in Alderson, W.V. for charging $750 for parking to news trucks trying to get a glimpse of the arrival of Martha Stewart. I would of done the same thing.

Not Cool Beans! - To Florida voters...See story here. What the hell is going on over there?! They seem like intelligent people to me, but it looks like some of them did not fill out their voter registration cards correctly. Plus, there has been some tampering with some of the ones that were not filled out the right way, huh, it all smells fishy to me. Ok Florida, get it right this time.

Nip/Tuck Over

The season finale of Nip/Tuck was tonight and I miss it already. I can not believe that I am going to have to wait till next June to see new shows. Wow, this season was awesome and far fetched at the same time...Come on Ava a man?!! The ending was great, but predictable. Do not get me wrong I love the show and all its insanity and can not wait for next season.

Are You Having A Bad Day?

This guy is having the worst day of his life. Read his story here and you will be feeling a lot better about how your day is going. So many questions come to mind, but I am going to put those in the comment section.

A Great Day to Be in Houston

This weekend was great. On Saturday, we with 20 of our family and friends headed to Minute Maid Park to see the Astros in action. The game was sold out and the Astros did not disappoint. What a great game.

On Sunday, we made our way back to Minute Maid park, on the last game of the season, to see the Astros clinch the wild card spot. The stadium was again sold out and full of excitement. It was a great game, but a little nerve racking. The Astros won 5-3.

The series against the Atlanta Braves starts this Wednesday! Good luck 'stros.

Bush or Kerry...Tough Choice

With a month to go, do you know who you are voting for?? Most people do already and are very adamant about it. I myself think these elections are like trying to pick a pair of high heels that hurt the least. You know they will all hurt, but are trying to get the least amount of pain.

Anyway, everyone has an opinion. As lame as both candidates are this election has stirred up people to the core. I am even afraid to say who I am voting for, because every time I do is like opening the doors of hell.

The debate last night was bland. I did not get inspired by either candidate. Kerry kept talking about how Bush f%^&$d up and Bush kept talking about how Kerry always switches sides. Of course there were other issues covered like the war in Iraq. In my opinion USAs presence there will never end. There is only one reason why we are there and that is oil. If there was no oil there we would care less about them killing themselves; we would just send them monetary help like we are giving Sudan. If Sudan was full of oil we would be the first ones there looking out for people's freedom and getting our military there ASAP securing the oil.

North Korea and disarming terrorist was a big discussion last night also. I do fear that there will be a war with North Korea. There has not been any UN inspectors looking for nuclear reactors since 2002 when their communist government kicked them out. Disarming Terrorist, well, that is another story, one that will never end no matter how hard we fight and how many people get killed. Unlike North Korea, a country with a location and borders, terrorism is borderless. Terrorist are everywhere, they are like rats that hide from the sunlight and come out at night when no one is watching. Disarming them will be a war that will never be won.
