Random Rambles....
...yes, it's time once again for those interesting things that run havoc in my brain...

You know, it's really kind of comforting when it's stormy outside and dark at 9 in the morning and Jimmy Buffett's "Margaritaville" comes up on the randomized playlist...

I can just see the marketing campaign now:

"Public restroom stalls: the new phone booth"

Overheard on a radio commercial from a comedian named Dave Burleigh:

You know there are these workout places called Curves. I guess they're for the women who are tired of having guys stare at them while they're in step class. Well, I have an idea - buy up all the storefronts around every Curves in the nation, install one way mirrors, barstools, serve some chicken wings...

We'll call it "Perves"

I'll admit, I laughed and thought that was a clever idea

So, Donald Trump is feuding with Rosie O'Donnell in the press, and has dragged Barbara Walters into the fray as well.

Donald says Barbara doesn't like Rosie, Barbara says she wouldn't have hired Rosie if she didn't like her, and praises her abilities. Donald continues to say Barbara doesn't like Rosie, but can't say that because she's got to work with her.

Here's what I want to know: what the heck does Trump have to gain by causing a rift in the press between Barbara and Rosie? Or does he know something we don't know and Barbara doth protest too much?

You know, life's too short and precious to be involved with things that cause you anxiety, heartache, or irritation.

So then, why do people continually be involved with the things that cause that? I know there's comfort in the familiar, but that just seems damn stupid if you stay involved with something year after year that bothers you like that.

The video taken while Steve Irwin (the "Crocodile Hunter") was dying of a stingray barb is going to be destroyed. The police have destroyed any copies they made during the investigation/autopsy, and the original has been given to his widow, Terri, who has indicated she will destroy the original.

Good. No one man's last minutes should be on film for the world to see. There is such a thing as death with dignity, and Steve Irwin should be given at least that. We shouldn't have had to see Saddam's hanging either...

...even if I didn't respect Saddam and he was a terrible horrible no good very bad dictator, that doesn't mean his death should have been filmed for any reason. Even the stretch that it's "historical".

Well, that's it for the moment... have a wonderful weekend!
