He has now taken UCLA to the final four twice, with no championships to show for it. That is new record for the Bruins. No coach has gone o and 2 in the final four from the Bruins.
I don't mean to sound like an LA fan, but off with his head.

The show was fun and very light. I knew about it mainly from the show in the 80's with Linda Ronstat, Rex Smith and Kevin Kline. It was really nice of Ed to bring me.

Well, I went over and we all joked about things, then the guy walked back. He had shed (and apparently had checked) his leather jacket and now he was just a skinny-ish, pale dull guy in a tank top with a shirt tied around him that looked silly. Ed said (and this is when I knew it was fate) "Oh honey. Leave the jacket on. (turned to us) That's just sad isn't it."
You may wonder why that comes up. Well, they changed the ads for Tarzan from abstractly hot. To actually girly. Leave some things to the imagination.
(says to brain: I bet the lead is hot.)
(says to brain: fake dreds? really? and why the pointed toe? and what is with the other arm.. you're not dragging a fur coat honey - you are swinging through the forest.. be prepared)

Well, that is where the company India Prayer Solutions (in Mumbai) comes in. Apparently there "There aren't enough Americans willing to sit in the prayer tower and take calls anymore," says a prayer coordinator at a major ministry which jobbed out its prayer lines last year."
But some things need unique sight.
For example, you should not finish a prayer conversation with a poor sad, depressed Evangelical (I assume if you call a prayer line something is probably wrong) like this: Last month, Lori Danes, 43, called the prayer line of a major television ministry and requested prayer for her mother's persistent ulcers. But her prayer representative, who called himself "Darren," prayed in a strong Indian accent that "all the gods would bless her mightily."
How did Lori Danes feel? "I was stunned," Danes says. "It was like I'd called a demon prayer line."

The President answered that these pictures were no different than the pictures of Weapons of Mass Destruction that Colin Powell showed the UN. They were, as those were, lies and fabrications.
This is what happens when your child lies and this is what happens when the administration lies. The difference being that your child grows out of it - and had very little belief anyway. The United States has hundreds of years of international truth and goodwill that George Bush has thrown in the shitcan and we won't grow out of this.
And the US, who should be able to mobilize the international community to work for good, gets to stand aside as hundreds of thousands in Dafur are displaced, killed and raped as a method of war. And that, ladies and germs, is immoral.
Here is the women's winner, Daniela from Slovakia is a cute and lithe winner. She is only ranked 14th in the world, but she has won the Pac Life Open twice in a row. She is a cutie. But wait until you see the moose she beat.
In her final match she had to play a Russian. It had all the underdog stories rolled into one. A 14th seed against the number 2 in the world. A Slovak valiantly playing against the woman from a country that had subjectugated them. And, of course, beauty verse the beast. I give you, poor, unattractive (and yet aptly named) Svetlana Kuznetsova.

Eddie and I were walking down 43rd street, la la la, happy go lucky. When suddenly people behind us start screaming, "WATCH OUT! WATCH OUT!"
Well, you never know where to watch out from. I assumed something was falling off the new building across the road (the new New York Times 80 story building). So I am freaking out, looking the wrong way. Eddie presses against the building we are at (and doesn't even try to pull me to safety!). And this woman, just steps ahead of us, stops, looks and doesn't know what to do.
Luckily, she had turned under a McDonald's aluminum canopy about 10 steps ahead of me, when a MASSIVE HUGE CRASH echoed in the road. A big chuck of ice fell about 14 stories and crashed on the aluminum canopy. After we were all done pooping in our pants, we walked down the middle of the road where the ice couldn't get to us. We all hurried home toot suite! We talked to the young lady at the end of the road at the red light and she was still a little shaky.
It was freaky! I actually was almost killed by the White Death!
And remember, my headstone should read "I Blame You!" - which of course would have been my last words to Ed.

It's amazing because I tend to think that everything has been discovered, seen and cataloged. Then you see something like this. I expected the new species of frogs and birds and stuff, but a whole new leopard.

The restaurant was great. It is a spicey, Singapore / Malay / Thai mix with really really good food. It was in the old Meat Packing district and the whole experience was fun. And yes Lisa, we have reservations for when you are here.
It was yummy!
So, while his wife was in labor, he was fooling around with someone else - a man who has since sued him for sexual harassment. Now, after resigning in disgrace and giving all of us a bad name, he is trying to get custody of the daughter. AND CHILD SUPPORT. Are U kidding me! He was the governor of New Jersey!!! He is a lawyer!!! He sold out his personal life for 30 ducats of gold (allegory). Now he wants spousal support.
He. Is. An. Idiot.

I actually said that and meant it. The new Gwen Stefani song "Orange County Girl" is so cool and I SO miss having someone to diss about it with.
So, just so you get some of the references:
"i know i am living the e-ticket dream": in the olden days Disneyland the best rides were all "E-Tickets" (like the Matterhorn and Space Mountain).
"still feel the wonderland, alice and the tick tock": These are rides in Disneyland, specifically Alice in Wonderland, the Tea Party and Peter Pan (Tic-Toc is the alligator).
"back in the 7-1-4 days": The old Orange County area code. Today, of course, 7-1-4 is so old news. All the whitest cities are so 9-4-9 (Irvine, Newport, Laguna and Costa Mesa (and you know who you are Bleakley).
You know me, I appreciate honesty. And, with General Pace you get honesty. The Chicago Tribune asked him about removing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and he was frank. "I believe homosexual acts between two individuals are immoral and that we should not condone immoral acts," Pace said.
I applaud his honesty. I would be interested in the rest of his moral feelings, since these seem to have direct interest on who gets to fit to serve our country. Is he catholic? Because any catholic who has been divorced without proving adultery is immoral. And any catholic who remarries is immoral.
Also, anyone who has a child out of wedlock is immoral and should not be allowed to serve. And I have seen the TV, some of these people are heros. We should hop to and kick their damn asses out.
And, of course, the military has relaxed their recruitment standards and 33% of new army recruits have criminal records now. The 2 most common offenses being burglary and assault. Last time I looked, those were both illegal and immoral. I mean big time, flaming words on the rock delivered to Chuck Heston immoral.
But no, it is critical to our nation to keep out a fag who doesn't have sex and wants to serve his country. The first enlisted man who was injured in action in Iraq (losing his leg) and never had sex in the military, but was gay - he is immoral. Lying to the nation in order to go to war, that is jim freaking dandy.
The words of contempt I have do not belong in public.
This, by the way, is the picture and story of the first marine injured in Iraq. The immoral Eric Alva. Who lost a leg for his country. Too bad he is an immoral Sodomite that is burning in hell.

They "expect" NO tax benefits from this. Uh.. yea. And, they don't think this will stop any Congressional oversite - they will still gladly appear before Congress -you know when they want since as a non-US company they no longer have to.
Maybe it is time to stop no-bid contracts from Halliburton. How about that. How about we stop pouring money into Dick Cheney's pocket (he is the ex-CEO and has a bunch of shares and options tied with it) with NO competitive bids. How about we finally stop now that this isn't even a US company. How about that?

So this week-end Eddie and I went up to Connecticut for a surprise party for Mike (Shawn's BF). Since we had the car, we drove up through the covered bridges in Connecticut and Massachusetts and through the cute little towns. It was really cool, and will probably be prettier in the green seasons.
The party was fun (but I have no pictures except for one with Ed and his new girl-friend - who is way buff). Today on our way home we stopped at both Target and Costco. It was ...sniff... WONDERFUL. We even bought some new shorts - just because we could.
Trevor was great on the trip. Here is a pick of Trevor and Ed. He was great in the car, and very well behaved in the hotel (where we had to sneak him in). It was fun.

According to CNN, Madison is the best city in the states for "taking a stroll".
I totally get it, Madison is a great little town. It is between two beautiful lakes, and the school is very nice. And, it is not too hilly.
But I think they might be able to find a better stock picture somewhere. Because it is going to be 10 degrees tonight in New York, so I know that when it is butt-cold the last thing you want to do is go for a "stroll."
Well, it was vague, so the fact that it is now expected to last until February 2008 should be no big deal.
Remind me how this isn't Vietnam again?

However, props where props are do. Dr. Albert Molher, conservative President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary has commented. And commented well that , "Conservative institutions cannot afford any association with this kind of language or attack. The issues are far too serious to be treated in this manner, and the very convictions Ann Coulter often defends are now sullied by association with her".
Agree or disagree, a discussion and a country united in trying to find solutions to very real problems need to foster a civil dialogue. My guess is that Dr. Molher and I would find much to disagree about. But a civil discussion would also allow us to find much TO agree about. The importance of safegaurding childern, the need for opportunities for our people and the value of a supporting community amoung them. So thank you Dr. Molher, you big southern baptist you. You did well.
March is not this! To quote that old git to Dan Qualye, "I know March sir. March and I were good friends. March and I have been through a lot together. And you sir, are no March." Trevor agrees.

I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby gives Scooters the world over a bad name. Guilty of lying and obstuction of justice. Of course it wasn't important was it? Just the deliberating outing of an undercover CIA operative. In order to punish her husband who did what again. Oh yeah, told the truth about Bush's lie in his State of the Union speech. Of course, the lie was lost in the noise when we found the weapons of mass destruction that Sadam had. Wait, we didn't find those? Really? So the administration was just lying to protect their own asses. Oh...
When reached for comment, Dick Cheney said, "quack quack quack.... QUACK, partisan hacks, quack, quack, quack."

Jamie Who? Jamie Anderson. He plays Cricket for England. Now, I know you say, Crickwhat? Cricket. And this month the World Cricket Cup starts. The website will show that the US doesn't play, but Jane is a HUGE Cricket fan.
Well, when a goof friend is a fan - and when it is the World Cup (even the World Cup of Cricket) then you have to root for them. And what better way to root for the team, than to find a young cutie.
Jamie is that.
Cricket is the forerunner of Baseball - there are some differences.
For 1, Cricket is played in the round, not in the 90 degrees of baseball. There are only 2 bases and they run back and forth.
And yes, his hair is like that on purpose. In trolling around I saw his graduation pictures and his hair was the same way. Slave to Fashion.
I like him because he is usually really a happy guy. So go England! Plus (in a oh-so-gay way) what a cute outfit they wear!
Good Luck in Dubai buddy!

When they were caught, they said - "Oh yeah, he was fired so that Carville's friend could get the job, but the rest were for performance reasons. Really!"
Man, if that whole lying-about-a-blowjob thing got him Impeached, this was the kicker!
Of course, it wasn't Clinton, it IS Bush. And it wasn't Carville, it IS Rove. So apparently it's no big deal when it is your side.
