Tea, rice, jello, applesauce, chicken broth, 7-Up and the remote -- my recipe for surviving food poisoning. To make it more interesting there's almost a foot of snow outside that needs to be dealt with, but I'm sticking near the porcelain throne today.
The Southwest Airlines 737 mishap at Midway Airport here in Chicago
yesterday occurred exactly 33 years to the day that a United crash at
the same airport took 45 lives.
The six year old boy who was in a car that was crushed by the plane was
the first Southwest fatality since they began operation. And he wasn't
even on the plane.
By the way, have you noticed that AOL is calling our journals blogs?
Also that Joe of Smoke and Mirrors seems to be stepping into Scalzi's
territory with some of his posts? Or am I just getting paranoid?
Chita Rivera is 73. She is singing and dancing on Broadway even as I
write this. She is proof that being a lifelong dancer is smarter than
playing sports. And don't point to the septugenarians who run
marathons. It's not like they're doing more than a shuffle.
Ms. Rivera is performing in a one woman show every night with matinees
on Wednesday and Sunday. Anne Miller danced until she was embalmed.
Does it bother you that Dr. Phil's son Jay is engaged to a former
Playmate or Penthose Pet who posed naked for everybody? Not that
posing naked is a bad thing. It's just that it makes me wonder about
his priorities.The guy is a law school grad with a number one best
seller to name just two things. Is she like a stripper who's
working her way through med school? And they met by accident in
the produce section of a health food store? Or is he just the
poster boy for his dad's new book about getting the relationship you
want? Maybe he's just being real. Lots of smart guys say they
want a woman with a good heart, good sense of humor, and a good mind.
But a good set of hooters never hurt. I wonder if Dr. Phil
included a chapter on cheap plastic surgery for women over sixty?
I better post this before my new mouse eats it.
NOTE to Oprah -- quit shilling for
your new musical, The Color Purple, on your show. Oh no, she just
gave the entire audience tickets.
Today I am determined to learn something useful watching TV. We'll see.
