Heh for Tonka: When I got in my car this morning, it was 10 below zero!

We just got back from an indoor water park up in Wisconsin where they had an indoor/ outdoor hot tub. The steam was so thick, both inside and out, that you couldn't see the people on the other side. You got frost on your eyelashes if you were outside too long.

Felt like one of those snow monkeys.

Why 'poor delivery guy'? That's how he makes his money. Probably making more today BECAUSE no one wants to go out. He's probably thinking its a good day.

What happened? Did she make the all-too-common mistake of trying to do too much?
She doesn't have the vocal range and the stylistic maneuvers used to cover that lack were apparent. Maybe okay for a footbal game, but not okay for the Inaugeration.

I agree. She's moderately talented, at best. And I like her. But she's not really possessing a fabulous set of pipes.

Jimmy Savile was a kids TV presenter who was so popular he was knighted. It seems however that he was using his show like Sandusky used 2nd mile club. BBC management and posisbly the authrities knew, covered it up and when an expose was scheduled to be shown, BBC quashed it.

It would be like Jerry Sandusky on Sesame St.

Ewww just thinking about that.

I was one of the latter...gas tank was empty and I knew I didn't want to be out standing by the pump this morning. It was bad enough when the sun was shining.

At the risk of having someone threaten to take away my man card, I will say, I love the movies Before Sunrise and Before Sunset. I just found some great related news last night. They've made a 3rd installment, Before Midnight, set to come out later this year. Read that it's really good and killed at Sundance.

Anyone else into those movies?

Whew, had to stop for gas this morning. Only filled the tank half way, screw it! I'll fill it up in a few days when it's a bit warmer.

I was out in St Louis last week. Not bitter cold, but enough to remind me of how good I got it!
