I Was Thinking About Something Else

That pretty much sums up my life nowadays. I will be doing something, walking into a room or driving, and I will go askew. Someone will inevitably ask at that same moment, "What are you doing?". Which will confuse me and I can only respond, "Yeah, well...I was thinking about something else".

Time to Weed

I so hate to do this, but by gum, I've got to weed the damn 'these people are worthy' list because they're not posting, or gone, or I just plain don't like them anymore.
Ok, I lied on the last part, but I do miss them. I am toying with the notion of a 'Hey, where the f*&@ are you?' list, which would only house those links that appear to still be active but haven't been written to in a long time. I would then encourage anyone who stops by my page to then stop by their page with just a one liner comment like, hmmmm, oh, I don't know, say like...."Hey, where the f*&@ are you?", or "Post something for crying out loud!".
Mmmmm, yes, I likes that idea.
Saw Spanglish last night. Excellent movie, which is no surprise with James Brooks, writing and directing. Duh. I will say that it was slow, but never in a bad way. I could just see why it didn't make boxoffice magic. The cast was perfect. Adam Sandler and Jim Brooks, a beautiful marriage.
Open Letter to Cloris Leachman: I love you. You are comedic acting genius.
Tea Leoni, I've always like you ever since your tv show The Naked Truth, where you were a journalist and you filled your bra with M&M's so that your boobs would look bigger in order to get some story, but the plan failed and when you were explaining the plan to your co-workers your plan with the M&M's and how it had failed and they (the co-workers) could have the M&M's from your bra, one of the loser guys said, "I don't like M&M's, what've you got in your pants?"
Well I still rank that as one of my all time favorite lines.
Oh, and Paz Vega. Well, um...I just love you. Sorry, that's all I got for you. Great job though!

Could We Just Have The One Who Can Read, Please

Watching the coverage of Katrina on TV, and as much as I dislike GW, he really is an insensitive boob, who doesn't have a clue in now (count'em) two national disasters. On the flip side, When Laura Bush (the one that can read) speaks, she effortlessly shows compassion and genuine care about what has happened and what we need to do to fix it.
I can't really say anything that hasn't been said already about the disaster itself, but I'm compelled to put two cents in.
After Basic Training in Texas, I was sent to Keesler Afb which is in Biloxi, Ms, for school. I was there for about six months and got to know the area pretty well. I can't believe the photos I've seen of Biloxi and Gulfport, which has the local airport. Someone on tv, I don't remember who, talked about how the area was not just devastated, indicating a rebuilding effort would restore the shoreline community's, but that it was obliterated. A far more accurate and terrible account by my reckoning. When I first saw the pictures, I thought that it was more like erased than anything else. They talk about looters, but the people I saw were taking like, food, which makes sense to me. Taking a tv. To where? You gonna walk it upstate?
