It happened again


Because I do two television reviews on a weekly basis (as their schedule falls), I get tipped every so often as to what is coming up with one of the stars as well as something about to unfold on the show. No quite sure what I'm supposed to do. I keep show details from various sources in mind for my final copy (although I know better than to quote them, the best sites get their facts screwed up). Here's my dilemma: the item I have revealed something about a star of one show. Said star said something incriminating. Now, in other interviews, that subject has been off the table. Do I still post?

Someone rearranged the alphabet and put U and I together

Now here's someone I could be thinking about! Posted by Picasa

What got me going? This from Dana. As a writer, there are a couple of reference books in my book collection. One is astrology/name defined. According to it, Virgo (me) has a relationship with Capricorn and Taurus. Mark (see above) is Capricorn. Hmmm...

This guy got it right

New York Daily News - Home - Editorials: Throw Roger from the train!

Excuse me, but weren't these people under contract? If there is one thing I've learned, it is to ALWAYS read what one signs. Seems to me the answer is what it's always been: fire those who strike and offer their jobs to people who might appreciate them-say, from homeless shelters.

Here's what's missing


With Eric talking about the future and Shoe talking about the past, the time has come for me to talk on the present. And since it's that time of year:
I have the responsibility each year of purchasing several. And in December-two. Why? No husband, kids, pets, or siblings. (take that last with a grain of salt, we've had three exchange students, so in theory I have three sisters). Where I live, I have shops in several directions. Some have even said it is "a touch of Virginia Highlands in Roswell". Well, almost. FYI, this is Georgia I'm referring to. So buying should be simple, no? However, I have a small advantage. Both parents went to big name schools. Except, my dad went to Michigan State. Ever tried to find items of that nature in the South?

Stupid Criminal Alert!


Now I can get this guy having a hard time paying for electronics at their regular prices. But why in the world would ANYBODY go back to the same store they already "robbed", so to speak?

What happened to Merry Christmas?


It seems to me that all one has to do is say "Merry Christmas" and if the person spoken to does not celebrate Christmas, says back, "Season's Greetings" or "Happy Holidays". I could be wrong, but I think Kwannzaa and Haunakah both use candles as symbols. Actually, trees are not really part of the true meaning of Christmas, either.

Oops, sppoke too soon


Went and looked up something in my last piece of transcription and found some forgotten phrases. But complete now. Just have to figure out where to locate my contact, and send all gazillion bits over. Reviews done, but have one to complete and send on- that is a book. Speaking of, need to get the process started on another one..

All Caught Up!


With my transcription project, at any rate. All I have to do is send the files to my contact. BL viewers wanted to see more of Mark Valley, they got it! He's coming into his own with another episode focused around him. With the upcoming hiatus until Jan. 06, this next week just may be the holiday show. Michael J. Fox can be seen next month. Baba Wawa of ABC pre-empted a couple of regular episodes with specials, and another one got bumped for something else!
