Tooth Tunes, Cool Deals, and a temporary death...


The kids got new toothbrushes the other day. Have you heard of these new ones that play songs in your head while you brush? You can actually hear the music outside of your head (that is, hold the brush, push back on the brush head, and it plays). But, put that puppy in your mouth (especially way back in the molar region) and it's a whole different ballgame... Loud as heck inside your head! :-) Very cool... Though, at 8 bucks a pop... Ouch...


"Deal or No Deal" was pretty cool - two hours of two shows, both featuring twins. Very cool. I personally thought the "Doublemint" offer was the best one of the night. Though, the "Hot Dog on a Stick" girl walked away with a pretty penny ($62,000 worth!) - not bad for working in the mall, having Howie walk up and say, "How'd you like to win a million bucks?" The most I ever won while on the job was $105... I may have told the story of the drunk-looking Santa... If I haven't, then I'll share it with you some time...


Em has (or had, depending on her current state of existence) an imaginary friend. Well, she has two, really. We were informed today that one of them died....in a tragic...er, uh... microwave oven incident. Shan told Em to be sure to let her invisible friend know that we should not play in ovens, microwaves, fridges, etc because it could kill us. To which Em replied, "Duh.. that's why she's DEAD, Mom..." Yeap, that would do it.... :-)


I was poking around the net at lunch, and visited my pals at "Vote for the Worst." They have picked Sanjaya now that Sundance is gone. Remember, they can ALWAYS claim victory because they change their...er, um... tune, every time their 'pick' gets voted off. Frankly, if you want to prove your point, pick someone and stick with them. If they get voted off, they get voted off and you theory needs work.... Oh well, what is actually the most entertaining part of all this is that people are posting to the boards, calling for the operator to shut it down. The feedback/posts are heavy with cussing, outrage, etc... "You are ruining people's lives..." blah blah blah... Look, the point of the site is to expose the problems with the voting system. If "Idol" is going to survive for more than one more season, they really need to address the problem... It's flawed - fix it. Of course, I would suggest that since "Vote for Worst" has such a huge issue with the whole thing, they should at least offer solutions... And maybe they do, who knows. I never stay on there long enough to read much passed a few reader posts... I just have too many other things popping in my head... :-)


eTopps has decided to offer WWE wrestling cards. I have never seen so much controversy over trading cards in my life. I mean, look, if you don't want wrestling cards, don't buy them... How hard is that? Geez...


I received this joke in email today, and thought I'd share it... eel free to pass it along and change the city/state if ya want... LOL...

Two guys are driving through Little Rock when they get pulled over by the boys in blue. The cop walks up and taps on the window with his nightstick. The driver rolls down the window and WHACK! the cop smacks him on the head with the stick.
"What the hell was that for?" the driver asks.
"You're in Arkansas, buddy," the cop answers. "When we pull you over, you better have your license ready when we get to your car."
"I'm sorry officer," the driver says, "I'm from Texas."
The officer runs a check on the guy's license - he's clean and gives the guy his license back. The cop then walks around to the passenger side and taps on the window. The passenger rolls the window down and WHACK! the cop smacks him on the head with the nightstick.
"Just making your wish come true," says the policeman.
"Making WHAT wish come true?" the passenger asks.
"Because I know," the cop says, "that two miles down the road you're gonna turn to your buddy and say, "I wish that ***hole would've tried that sh*t with me!"
