He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not, He Loves Me!!!

Wow, some people really get carried away with their celebrity crushes. Colleen Nestrel from Santa Fe, NM, filed a restraining order against David Letterman claiming that he has caused her “mental cruelty” and “sleep deprivation”. Ok, at first I said that Letterman freak! but as I read the story I came to realize that they do not even know each other!

Nestrel claims that she and Letterman have their own secret language and that he has even proposed marriage to her through the television…Hellllllo! All I can say is that the judge that granted this woman a restraining order needs to have HIS head examined, plus what a waste of resources and tax-payer’s money.

If Nestrel felt so abused by Letterman why didn’t she just change the channel or turn her TV off? Oh, yeah, I forgot, he talks to her when her TV isn’t even on. Freak!!

Yucky snow

Thursday, December 15, 2005


I have been trying to post some snow pictures from Boston (and all you guys know how much I LOVE snow), but I fear my phone is frozen. The temperature up here has been wretched, the low has been around 7 and the highs have been in the 20s…yuck!!

I am up in Boston, yes, all together now, AGAIN?? Yes, it seems that people up here can not live without me. Yippy, lucky me.

I will try to upload some pics as soon as my phone defrosts.

I am sick!! My throat is hurting so much that I can not even swallow, much less talk. Today is Elaine’s birthday party and I can not believe that I am missing it.

The kids have been sick for a while now (given Houston’s daily temperature change), since I had not gotten sick, I though that maybe I was going to be safe this winter, but I guess not. Those germs found their way in and ravaged my body. Damn them!!!

I was so looking forward to the party. Elaine, have a great birthday and an awesome time.

Have Gun, Will Shoot

Caution – With this post I do not mean to offend anyone that has a bipolar disorder or mental illness in any way.

Ok, with that said…what the hell was Rigoberto Alpizar (the guy that was shot in the Orlando International Airport on Dec. 7th by an Air Marshal) doing without his medication? And why was he on a missionary trip to Quito, Ecuador if he is bipolar?

I feel really bad for his wife and their families, but if I would have been on that plane I would have told the Air Marshals to shoot him. You would have to live under a rock not to know that suicide bombers are becoming the trend and that those types of terrorist attacks will be increasing here in the United States.

I think that anyone that says that the Marshals shot Alpizar too quickly, without waiting to see if he really had a bomb, are not thinking straight, or maybe they would think differently if it was them on that flight.

Next time I fly I am definitely paying attention to the lady on the airport loudspeaker that says that anyone making jokes or not taking the security measures seriously will be removed and that actions will be taken...and now we know they mean it.

Weird Conversation

I was at Wal-Mart today picking up some last minute items I need for my outside Christmas decorating. For some reason I feel that I need to keep up with the crazies down the street – they deserve a whole entry, so I will leave that one for later.

As I am looking at lights a lady comes up and stands next to me, nothing weird about that, except that she is talking to herself, nothing unusual about that either, I think; we have all done it at some point or another. I look at her and smile, she tells me that she was talking to herself (helllllo!! we all heard you lady). I make a joke and say, well, you know what they say, as long as you are not answering yourself you are ok. She tells me she answers herself and “my psychiatrist (holy crap!!) says that as long as I am talking to someone that it’s there I am ok. He will start to worry if I am talking to a…” at this point she starts waving her hand in front of her face and I say “imaginary”, she says, “yes, someone that does not exist”.

Moral of the story – stay away from the Christmas aisles, anyone that has waited this late in the game to get their Christmas shit together is dealing with other forces or voices inside their head.

Day From Hell

The day started off pretty good. I woke up early because Best Buy was delivering my new refrigerator and dishwasher. JR has wanted a new dishwasher for a long time, and since the holidays are upon us I was like, Merry Christmas honey!

Anyway, you might be asking yourself, didn’t she have a refrigerator? And what happened to her old one? Well, yes, I did, JR and I purchase this jewel, piece of crap, refrigerator that has been serviced over 5 times. A couple of weeks ago the darn thing completely stopped making ice, and nobody messes with my ice! So we called in again to get it serviced, we inquired about the non-lemon service agreement and we ended up getting a new fridge…yippie for us!!!

A couple of days later we made our way to Best Buy and got ourselves some new appliances. Ok, this brings me to today.

This morning two guys came and brought me my stuff. They gave me the basic instructions like, do not drink the first 3 gallons of water or use the first tray of ice, ok, got that. So I went on my way. A couple of hours later when I come home and open the fridge I see water all over the place. I am like, what the fu%k?!! I clean it up and call in right away. The lady that answers tells me to close the water valve, ok, I can do that. I tell the lady that I am not putting on with this and that I want to exchange it (I went through too much crap with the other fridge to have this one mess up the first day). She tells me to call the store.

Now, mind you that the people working at Best Buy are no PhDs, but they talk to you like YOU are an idiot. I tell the store guy what is happening. He tells me to take the filter out and gives me directions on how to reinstall it, maybe I am an idiot! I then turn the water valve on, I can do that. He says to go to the water dispenser and run it until the water is running out smoothly. I do this, but notice that two minutes later the water is still sputtering. I open the fridge side door to see if it is leaking and a tidal wave comes out and unto my hardwood floors. The rest of the story, well, you can just imagine how it went.

I am pissed and tired. I am marching into Best Buy tomorrow and getting me all different stuff…well, you all know what they say- lucky in love, unlucky in refrigerators.

Look Ma' No...Horns!?

That whole Cruise/Holmes baby pregnancy is just getting weirder and weirder.

It turns out that Tom Cruise is now pissing off a government agency. The Food and Drug Administration and the American College of Radiology are questioning his reasons for getting an ultrasound machine. The agencies are saying that continuous unnecessary exposure might harm the baby. Read entire article here.

The way I see is that when you have all the money in the world buying an ultrasound machine is like buying a baby swing to the rest of us, it kinda just comes with the baby. Plus, Tom has to check for horns if he wants to sell the picture of his “perfect family” and be on the cover of Vanity Fair.
