I Knew It All Along

Wednesday, August 31st, 2005

Barbara Stanwyck You scored 33% grit, 14% wit, 47% flair, and 21% class! You’re a tough dame, a bit of a spitfire, and you can even be a little dangerous, but you do it with such flair that almost all is forgiven (and even when it’s not, you’re still the most interesting woman in the […]

Some of you already know Gutterboy who is not only one of my favorite people on the whole Internet, but also a resident of New Orleans. He got out of town safely days ago *whew*, and although the damage in NOLA was severe, it seemed like the worst hadn’t happened there. Until this morning, when […]

Grimm Tidings

Monday, August 29th, 2005

Fairly boring weekend. Got Project: Paint the Basement almost finished and went to see The Brothers Grimm. Grimm has been getting really bad reviews all over the place, and for the life of me I can’t understand why. I’m just gonna chalk it up to reviewer stupidity. I think there are two kinds of movie […]

Random Moment of Surrealism

Have a Swayze kinda weekend, everybody!

Home Sweet Home

Wednesday, August 24th, 2005

For once I have some exciting news to share! I’ve known about this for a while, but I didn’t want to post until everything was confirmed and definite.

Give it up for Marci

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2005

Your money, that is. My favorite glam chick, Marci, is doing a good deed for my favorite charity, Animal Friends: Pittsburgh’s only No-Kill shelter. This upcoming Sunday, she’s and her dog are participating in a fundraising walk for the shelter, and she’s collecting sponsorship money. So get out your wallets and pony up! Animal Friends […]

What a nice weekend

Monday, August 22nd, 2005

It really was. Thursday night we motored to Cleveland and saw DEVO, who were absolutely brilliant. Best concert experience I’ve had in quite some time. Nice venue, very enthusiastic crowd, few drunken louts, and of course the band is sheer genius. Friday morning we walked from our hotel to the science center for Bodyworlds. Got […]

Useless Info

Saturday, August 20th, 2005

Got this link on Loupy’s page, and I have to say, it’s pretty darn accurate. Your Birthdate: October 30 Your birthday on the 30th day of the month shows individual self-expression is necessary for your happiness. You tend to have a good way of expressing yourself with words, certainly in a manner that is clear […]


Thursday, August 18th, 2005

Can’t talk much today, I have a lot to do before we pack up the PT and drive to Cleveland tonight for… DEVO!!! Yessir, the world’s nerdiest band. I love them, go figure. Anyway, while we’re in Cleveland we’re planning to go to the Great Lakes Science Center to see the Bodyworlds 2 exhibit. I […]

Human Anatomy 101

Wednesday, August 17th, 2005

This post is dedicated to Mae West, whose birthday is today. Everyone knows I’m a pretty big fan of Gap clothes, the jeans in particular. But right now I have a serious nit to pick with my favorite store. Gap has just introduced women’s jeans with different “fits.” They go like this: Curvy fit — […]

Am I Evil?

Tuesday, August 16th, 2005

Yes I am! I almost forgot to tell you guys about this charming anectdote. This past Sunday, there was a birthday party for Crack Monkey over at the Crack House. Carloads of relatives and friends (Dubious. I still can’t believe he has any friends.) showed up, extorted gifts in hand. Thankfully, they were mostly adults, […]

Special Delivery

Monday, August 15th, 2005

…at our house yesterday! Instead of a stork, it was a big blue truck that dropped it off. Yup, it is DONE! And here! I never thought I’d live to see the day. BW finished everything up on Friday/Saturday, passed the inspection, then his dad dropped the cycle off Sunday afternoon. Now it’s snug in […]

Judas Priest on a Pony!

Monday, August 15th, 2005

I am so happy that that thing which I will not dignify by speaking its name plummeted in the box office and made less than half as much this week as it did last week. I won’t say it restores my faith in humanity, because if humanity had any decency, that thing would never have […]

That Cat Gandalf is a Bad Mutha…

Sunday, August 14th, 2005

“Shut yo’ mouth!” “But I’m talkin’ ’bout Gandalf” “We can dig it!” My best buddy is 11 today! Can I get a “right on!” ?

RIP, Miss Ellie

Thursday, August 11th, 2005

Miss Ellie Ewing has gone to the Southfork in the sky. I’ll always remember her telling Ray to fetch her the shotgun from the hall closet. Or making coffee. Or eating breakfast on the patio. Or arguing with Jock about the Takapa development project. *sigh* I guess all that feuding with JR and Bobby just […]

50,000 MST3K fans Can’t Be Wrong

Wednesday, August 10th, 2005

BWAHAHAHAHAHAAAA! Was ‘The Island’ cloned? WB, DreamWorks face legal woes over ‘Clonus’ As if the grosses for “The Island” weren’t bad enough, DreamWorks and Warner Bros. must now contend with legal woes related to the movie. The producers of 1979 indie pic “PARTS: THE CLONUS HORROR” filed suit Monday in federal court in Gotham alleging […]


Tuesday, August 9th, 2005

Warning: Content-Free Gratuitous Fangirlie Post. Yeah, so we all know that The Island was just a really bad, big-budget uncredited remake of the former MST3K feature Parts: The Clonus Horror. (You guys knew that, right? Well now you do.) So crappy did it seem that I didn’t even bother seeing it, and it bombed resoundingly […]

Cooler Than Thou

Saturday, August 6th, 2005

Happy Birthday to Bobby the Mitch! They just don’t come any cooler than Mitch. He made some classics, he made some B-grade stinkers, he made a lot of noir and a lot of war movies, but Mitch was always totally watchable in ‘em all. He had a bad-boy image, but he didn’t care about image. […]

Dress for the Crash, Not the Ride

Friday, August 5th, 2005

BW bought me a motorcycle helmet the other day! Granted, I don’t know if I’d ever be brave enough to ride anything except the old 1940′s three-wheeled Harley that doesn’t go above 40 mph, but just in case, it doesn’t hurt to have a helmet. I couldn’t find anything in the stores that I liked; […]


Thursday, August 4th, 2005

I may just have to recant my Jude Law fangirlism. No, I don’t care that he banged his nanny while engaged to Ms. Crayola-Crayon-Name Miller. I mean really, what did she expect from a man who’d just gotten out of an ugly divorce and who had probably cheated on said ex-wife with Ms. Miller in […]
