On VH-1 Next Monday




I should be on VH-1's All Access: Heartbreakers Hall of Shame next Monday so go and set your Tivos now, unless you have no desire to see the show, in which case, don't TiVo it.

I'd have posted this announcement closer to the date, but I don't have much to talk about today. Also, I'm taping something for VH-1 tomorrow and that reminded me to see when the last thing I taped would air. Also, I like to make it seem as if I have a lot going on in my career. I do. I have a LOT going on. Like Alito, I just can't talk about it right now. Wouldn't be jurisprudent. Huh?

Listened to some of the Senate confirmation hearings on nominee Judge Alito. I don't know about y'all, but I'm not sure his record on the Third Circuit Court is any comfort with regard to stare decisis. Know what I'm sayin'? Me either. I just know that I'm thinking about getting an abortion now while I still can. Before anyone jumps down my throat, I said I'm just thinking about it. I'm not going to run out and do it right away. That would be rash. Besides, I'm not preggers. Yet.

If anyone's planning on dying in front of his or her TV, please make sure you have it on VH-1.

I listened to Alito's confirmation campaign today - everything he said sounded like rhetoric; he needs to explain his prior views on abortion, but by 'needs' I mean 'won't'. The whole thing gives me the jeebs.

Laura you need to parlay this VH-1 gig into being a permanant member on all of their shows that feature comic comments - you could replace that man-boy guy who (what is that dudes name)is their secret anchor. You know the dude - with the mop hair and a hint of eyeliner. What teh hell is his name.

You know I would know exactly what that means and that I'm not your only reader who would. You know exactly what it means too so stop frontin'.

You need to copyright your idea from the podcast ASAP.

I doubt the dead woman in Cincinati looks as good as that Chinese mummy.

Pardon me, but the dude you need to replace is Michael Ian Black. If he's a pal of yours forgive me, but he is the Mason Reese of the new millenia.

Is it the apparent looking eye surgery or botox? Is it the combover? Is it his fresh-as-an-old-can-of-cream-o-mushroom delivery? Is it his fear of facial expressions? Is it his proliferation on every Vh-1 program?!

Yes and yes. He is not conveying the right message to people of my generation. We are nowhere near as afraid of losing our precious boyish good looks as he is. Then again may be the message is "better living through androids".

You have to remember that all these judges are the same no matter what party or side they come from. Justice Ginsburg really got this current trend of question dodging going so now that the genie is out of the bottle they all follow suit. Judges always look to precedent.

I wouldn't worry about abortion, no matter what your view is, because first a case would have to get to the SCOTUS that would allow them to vote to overturn Roe v. Wade which is highly unlikely. In the event that they did vote to overturn, the states could then decide for themselves whether or not they want abortion in each individual state (which is what the orginal ruling was supposed to allow).

Good to hear your going to be on VH-1. I hope you can do some more work there but don't replace Michael Ian Black.

As I was walking to Home Depot at about 4:30, I saw vans from all the local TV stations setting up.
Turns out that a 7 year old girl died from a blow to her head. The coroner found evidence of long term abuse, so the mother and step-father were arrested. The other 4 or 5 children were taken into protective custody.

Before I found out the whole sad story, I got an idea. If you want to get an abortion as a protest statement. Uou can get media attention by auctioning yourself off on ebay or something.
All you have to do is consent to invitrofertilisation until an egg attaches, then you get the abortion and tada controversy ensues.
Couples could pay to say "That's our egg" or you can auction off the right to donate egg and sperm separately.
I would do it if I could, but I ain't got no baby cooking sack.

There's an episode at 9AM, 6PM and 10PM. I'm recording all of them since I don't know which is which.

Thanks Laura for reminding me to check the air conditioner I have running in my attic. Don't want those bodies to stink.
