random thoughts for tuesday february 1st, 2011

HAPPY TUESDAY EVERYBODY…well, i wasn’t supposed to be here today, but DAD AND I decided it wasn’t smart to try to go to MINNEAPOLIS to his doctor appointments today…so, YOU’RE STUCK WITH ME….




1.  happy birthday wishes are going out to GARRETT MORRIS, formerly of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE…he’s 74 today….one of my favorite skits of GARRETT’S, was with CHEVY CHASE when CHEVY did the news, and GARRETT did the new for the “hard of hearing”, which he basically screamed out….

and here’s GARRETT MORRIS today on his 74th birthday…

2.  GEORGE JEFFERSON has a birthday today…well, not GEORGE, but the actor who portrayed him….actor SHERMAN HEMSLEY turns 73 today…we all remember him from that hit tv show…

and here’s SHERMAN HEMSLEY today at 73….

3.  a girl i used to have the “hots” for is having a birthday today…PRINCESS STEPHANIE OF MONACO is celebrating birthday number 46 today…I USED TO LOVE HER…

and here she is today at 46…..

4.  TONIGHT COULD BE WEATHER THAT COULD KILL SOMEONE…man, oh man, tonight’s going to be HORRIBLE…they’re talking actual temps tonight of THIRTY THREE BELOW ZERO…yeah, actual temps of 33 below…wind chills could approach FIFTY BELOW ZERO TONIGHT….make sure to stay warm, and if you have to go out have a winter survival kit in the car…

5.  well, we made it back from MINNEAPOLIS yesterday…overall, it wasn’t too bad, but there were spots that weren’t so nice….had a pretty good time….the meetings were okay…learned a lot…but my nightlife was terrific….went to a concert, and then went to a movie and supper with two of my beautiful nieces, KRISTIN AND MANDY on saturday night…

first of all, the concert….AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME…

PLAIN WHITE T’S were incredible…

from start to finish, they guys were incredible…such a tight band, with super tight vocals, and a drummer that beat the heck out of the drums…..I WILL START TODAY TO SEE IF WE CAN GET THEM IN ABERDEEN….

here’s their new song “RHYTHM OF LOVE.”


and the band PARACHUTE blew me away…i was mildly excited to see them, but i became a big fan of the show…the good looking lead singer has an incredible voice…great band too…here’s their big hit “SHE IS LOVE.”


and now on to the movie “THE RITE” starring ANTHONY HOPKINS…

it was scary in parts, creepy in parts, and overall a good movie….it way different than i thought it would be, but ANTHONY HOPKINS is so creepy….

6.  last night we watched the movie “BURIED.”

I COULDN’T BREATH DURING THIS MOVIE….RYAN REYNOLDS is the only actor in this entire movie, and he spends the entire movie in a wooden casket underground…..makes me claustrophic just thinking about it….pretty good movie, though…

7.  radar online reports that CHARLIE SHEEN has spent A HALF MILLION DOLLARS in the past six months on “escorts and drugs.”  that’s the same amount of money you and i will spend on gas this year…

8.  DAVID ARQUETTE has checked himself out of rehab…it was either that or share a room with CHARLIE SHEEN…

9.  MADONNA may tour this year with the cast of “GLEE.”  it’s a great break for these kids..unfortunately some of them confused MADONNA with BETTY WHITE…

10.  EVA LONGORIA AND TONY PARKER have finalized their divorce…according to terms of the agreement, they will share custody of the paparazzi….


A blonde is driving home and gets caught in a really bad hail storm. The hail is as big as tennis balls, and she ends up with her car covered with large dents. So the next day she takes her car to the repair shop.
     The shop owner, seeing she is blonde, decides to have a little fun. He tells her just to go home and blow into the tail pipe, really hard, and all the dents will just pop out. The blonde drives home, gets out of the car, gets down on her hands and knees and starts blowing in the tail pipe. Nothing happened. So she blew a little harder, and still nothing happens.
     Meanwhile, her roommate, also a blonde, comes home and asks, “What in the world are you doing?”
     The blonde car owner tells her how the repairman had instructed her to blow into the tailpipe in order to get all the hail dents to pop out.
     Her blonde roommate rolls her eyes and says, “Hell-OOOO! …. Don’t you think you should roll up the windows first?”


    A man was in no shape to drive, so he wisely left his car parked and walked home.
    As he was walking unsteadily along, a policeman stopped him.
    “What are you doing out here at 2 A.M.?” said the officer.
    “I’m going to a lecture.” The man said.
    And who is going to give a lecture at this hour?” the cop asked.
    “My wife,” said the man.
