Long before? So I guess a camera crew just happened to be hanging around so they could air the (supposed) building of the house with no professional help. Speaking of professional help....
Apr 30th 2010 5:29PM Andy and Helen got married in the first episode of Mayberry RFD, the continuation of the Andy Griffith show starring Ken Berry. I caught several episodes on TV Land when they were doing a marathon and actually, Andy and Helen return for another episode later in the series to have their infant son, Andy Jr., christened.
Apr 22nd 2010 10:39AM Amen to that! One of my favorite memories of childhood summers is going shopping with my mom at her favorite department stores. That feeling of coming in from 90 degree heat into that wonderfully cool store interior was heavenly. Now it seems it's often warmer in the stores than outside. I don't know how many times I would have liked to look around more, but not being able to stand the heat, just got the essentials and left. Maybe they're saving money on AC, but I wonder how many sales they're losing because of it. To me, temperature is much more important than smell or music!
Apr 22nd 2010 7:29AM I read a very sad article about a young girl who most likely had a wonderful life ahead of her but died tragically at 18. What the hell did everyone else read? Everyone blames the media for its hype, but look what "average" (more likely below average) citizens have already created in their minds - she was on illegal drugs; she was on birth control pills (which of course makes her a ho), she was depressed because she didn't smile during a PHOTO SHOOT - have any of you posting this drivel ever seen professional model shots - how many are smiling? And if she was depressed, what does that mean, suicide by stroke? Oh, and my favorite, she wore fur (which may not have been fake) in the shoot and as that poster pointed out that's "bad karma" and evidently grounds for a death sentence. I am so sick of this blame the victim mentality and the public's overwhelming need to find out what bad thing a person did to deserve to die before their time. Has anyone in your family ever died? Did you sit around at the funeral comparing lists of possible transgressions that "caused" the death? You people make me sick.
Nov 28th 2009 1:40PM OMG I don't believe I'm going to (somewhat) agree with PETA. I think this is the first time ever and I feel like the earth stopped spinning on its axis just for a second there. All kidding aside, I love all animals and although PETA would claim the same, I think they're more concerned about getting their own political agenda (whatever that may be) across than "saving" animals. However, the issue of improper breeding and genetic defects shortening the lives of many purebred dogs is very real. I'm sure it's a very sad thing for the university and its fans when a mascot dies, but as long as they continue to use live mascots from this line, they are going to experience this sadness (before its natural time) over and over, no matter how well the dogs are treated. Yeah a robotic 'dog' is a pretty silly idea, but if a costumed character mascot is out of the question, perhaps the University could at least do more research into the breeding lines of these dogs and people associated with the University and the public in general need to work to stop improper (aka "backyard") breeding. So many dogs suffer problems and live unnaturally short lives due to improper and overbreeding. Think about that the next time you just have to have that purebred puppy and find a "deal" in the classifieds. Do your research and only deal with experienced breeders who will not overbreed just for profit. Ok, I am done and officially back on the record as a PETA hater.
Sep 24th 2009 3:50PM Macy Gray reminded me of a black Anna Nicole Smith in some weird way...something about that little-girl voice, maybe. But even though she was not a great dancer, I can't believe she could be high and stay on her feet during the dances. Must just be her normal personality...
Sep 18th 2009 2:02AM Maybe I'm just very tired. Maybe it's the 3 glasses of wine I had after a late dinner. Or maybe it's AOL's usual sloppy writing/editing. But I can't even begin to debate the politics or ideologies expressed in the article or comments until I understand something: Is the headline for this piece not:
"Why Theron Won't Marry
Actress Who Played Sondra Huxtable
Refuses to Tie Knot: Personal Reason" ?
Now, just when did Charlize Theron play Sondra Huxtable, eldest child in the long-running sitcom "The Cosby Show"? Or is there another character named Sondra Huxtable I'm not aware of? I really don't think I'll sleep tonight unless I figure this one out. A little help, please?
Sep 10th 2009 8:48AM Just for kicks, I clicked on Sharon's username, which links into her other recent posts. Very interesting, especially the one in response to an article about picking up your husband's socks - if this post is true (husband so lazy she only gets a couple showers a week, shaved her head because she doesn't have time to wash her hair, etc.) then we certainly know why she's a bitch. Incidentally, someone who doesn't have time to wash her own hair had time to post to several blogs? Hmmmm.....Maybe instead of stupid bitch, it's crazy bitch - amusing herself by posting made up stories of how terribly life has mistreated her.
Sep 5th 2009 7:45PM Paris Hilton flies business class? Guess the recession's finally hit everyone.
Sep 3rd 2009 1:38AM I'm sorry, I don't often pray before sex - however I talk to God a lot during (as in "oh God, oh God, God, yes!) Think that counts? BTW, I already know I'm going to hell, so you needn't tell me again.
