This and that. . .

  • Rough day for us baby-boomers. First, Farrah Fawcett loses her battle with anal cancer. This really makes me feel old. I'm old enough to remember her from the days of the original "Charlie's Angels" as well as the iconic red-swimsuit-with-nipples poster--I think that was the all-time best-selling poster of all time, and I'm sure it caused lots of teenage boys to later require eyeglasses as a result of excessive viewage.
  • As if to top Farrah in the Celebrity Death of the Day, Michael Jackson went ahead and dropped dead of a heart-attack. Los Angeles police say he was found face-down in an eight-year-old. Wait, that part wasn't true. Amazing how quickly the media had rounded up "experts" in entertainment law, pop culture, etc., to dissect the body before it was even cold. Can you name the other members of the Jackson Five, though? And with Jackson dead, who now is the "King of Pop"? George Michael? Wayne Newton? The world awaits the decision. . .
  • And condolences to the family of Ed McMahon, announcer extraordinaire, who kept his house from foreclosure, but, alas, died this week. He was in his 80s. Amazing to me that few folks under the age of 20 have any recollection of him as Johnny Carson's sidekick. Oh, but I sure do. He was the guy who fed Johnny the Carnak questions. He was the prototype for a late-night sidekick before the age of self-loathing, irony, and "Hey Now" Hank Kingsley. Some might have called Ed's schitk syncophantic: question--what makes Ed McMahon laugh at all of Johnny Carson's jokes? Oh, $3 million a year. I'm sure that Jackson's death has bumped McMahon of the cover of next week's "People" magazine, since he was no-doubt barely hanging in there with the "small corner photo" earlier in the morning with the announcement of Fawcett's death.
  • Oh, and just to see who reads this blog, I wonder if Chris P. would be as interested in this story once he reads beyond the headline. I know I quickly lost interest. Sounds like the Phillipines is a pretty dangerous place to go MILF-hunting.

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear
and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

Although it is often mistaken for obesity, cellulite is not actually obesity related
because it can also take place in thin lean women.
And also some of the underweight people are also such complaints.
You must understand that the body is designed to move.

I can't tell you how fast you will see results because it depends on how much you want to get rid of acne. Touching your chin frequently will transfer these germs and dirt to the chin area which may result in acne on chin. Those with sensitive skin should not use it as it can irritate.

Among them are people who push you to meet them right
away, pressure you to give out your personal information
immediately, seem to be inconsistent in their information, are vague and non responsive to your questions.
By being a passionate person, your conversation have that spark and excitement in them.
Few men who are inexperience in online dating had
lost money in the past to some people whom
they became friends to in dating sites.
