Number Thirty-three

"O nature, what hadst thou to do in hell
When thou didst bower the spirit of a fiend
In mortal paradise of such sweet flesh?
Was ever book containing such vile matter
So fairly bound? O that deceit should dwell
In such a gorgeous palace!"

(Shakespeare, Romeo & Juliet)

I can't tell you how many guys I have thought this about. (I know I just ended a sentence in a preposition.)

A guy on a commercial for The Newlyweds was talking about his pigeons that were used in one of Jessica's videos. He said that one of the pigeons flew into Jessica during the shoot. And then, he said something like, "At that moment, she just smiled at me. You know what that is? Grace."
What?!?!

Audrey Hepburn, Katharine Hepburn, Grace Kelly = grace
Jessica Simpson = not grace

Number Thirty-two

Did ya'll know that in 1995 Newt Gingrich said something like, "There are serious problems with women [in the military] being in ditches for thirty days. They get infections"?? This was his argument for why women shouldn't go to war. Like, "OH MY GOSH!! I'm having my period! I can't do this and fight a war at the same time!!!" And the guys are like, "Oh snap! Oh snap! She's shot! She's shot!"

I am sickeningly addicted to "I love the 90s." I have a serious disease. Remember Ricola?? Remember "six degrees away from Kevin Bacon"?? Oh my gosh. Matt Giesman and Josh Mallory used to rock at that. The funniest actors/ comediennes on this program are Micheal Ian Black, Rachael Harris, and Hal Sparks. Oh! And that big red-headed guy with the full beard. Brian Posehn. That's it. He's hilarious. I love how M. I. Black can just sit there with the straightest face in the world and tell you something so funny you wet your pants. It's like Mark Twain's idea of comedy: You have a narrator who acts as if he has no idea that what he is saying is in any way humorous.

"And don't suppose I would drink poison for love. Unless it had some Jack in it. Then I might." (Micheal Ian Black, in reference to Romeo & Juliet)

I know I'm a total dweeb, but I love "Lord of the Dance." Yes, the Irish Riverdance thing was a total craze. And, yes, Micheal Flatley seemed cocky. But can YOU dance like him?? I wish I could.

Number Thirty-one

Must-see movie: The Philadelphia Story, 1941

"The ultimate tale of a topsy turvy romance, Kate Hepburn juggles the charms of ex husband Cary Grant, cynical Jimmy Stewart, and fiancee John Howard. The race to the altar is on in this delightful romantic comedy! The Philadelphia Story brought Kate back into popularity, and gave Jimmy his only Oscar." --Angela Allan

Number Thirty

"Information is not knowledge,
Knowledge is not wisdom,
Wisdom is not truth,
Truth is not beauty,
Beauty is not love,
Love is not music,
Music is the best."

Number Twenty-nine

"I rather like this God fellow-- a little pestilence here, a little plague there. Omnipotence!! Got to get me some of that!" (Stewey, "The Family Guy")


Number Twenty-eight

"When the day is long
And the night, the night is yours alone,
When you’re sure you’ve had enough of this life, well hang on.
Don’t let yourself go.
Everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes.

Sometimes everything is wrong.
Now it’s time to sing along.
When your day is night alone (hold on, hold on),
If you feel like letting go (hold on),
When you think you’ve had too much of this life, well hang on
’Cause everybody hurts.
Take comfort in your friends.
Everybody hurts.
Don’t throw your hand. Oh, no. Don’t throw your hand.
If you feel like you’re alone, no, no, no, you are not alone.

If you’re on your own in this life,
The days and nights are long,
When you think you’ve had too much of this life to hang on,
Well, everybody hurts sometimes.
Everybody cries
And everybody hurts sometimes.
And everybody hurts sometimes."

(R.E.M.)

Number Twenty-seven

Yesterday, Ellis and Becky took us out to lunch at Mr. Ho's. Alot of other people went as well, including Scott, Lydia, Dia, and Jenna. It was loads of fun. I love our Sunday lunches. My fortune in my fortune cookie read, "Happiness always accompanies with you." He he he he.

After lunch, a guy ran into my car and probably totaled it.
