Much Randomness

So, I'm going to New Orleans on Friday and won't be back until late Sunday. As always, don't post anything interesting while I'm gone. ;) Tonight I planned on starting to get ready to go since I've done next to no planning thus far. Of course, the exhaustion coupled with the nausea kind of killed that plan. I'm feeling better now, maybe I at least can finish up the last of my Christmas cards tonight.

I know several of you are aware of this because I've seen comments on other LJs regarding it - FOX's new reality series Who's Your Daddy?. Yes, a woman gets to try to figure out which of eight men is her father. Seriously. I'm rarely disgusted by television, but this qualifies. What's next, 'So You Want To Be A Porn Star?' in which you have to pay to watch the finale, her film debut, on Pay Per View?

I was watching 60 Minutes tonight and got my first glimpse of the new 'tween' sensation Jojo. I almost fell off the couch when they announced she was fricken thirteen. Britney Spears looks and acts less mature. Hell, I don't have a mouth on me that this girl has. If she's actually representative of *kids* her age, I weep for the future.

Out of curiosity has anyone actually recieved a Chia Pet as a Christmas gift? And, if so, are you still speaking to the person who gave it to you?

I received a lovely gift from fer1213 today. It's squishy and lights up when to pinch it. It's a plush Blue M&M! What? What did you think it was? Anyway, I love it and it will make a very nice addition to my collection. Surprisingly, I've seen none of these in our stores here.

BEN BROWDER IS JOINING 'STARGATE'!!!!!

Yes, I'm still a wee but excited by that. ;-)

I have already decided that Western Civilization moved from the decline to the fall stage with The Littlest Groom. I refuse to even raise an eyebrow at any of FOX's increasingly desperate and exploitative reality shows at this point.

Also, if I can't get my Farscape post up by tomorrow morning, I'm going to wait till Monday. Feeling like crap on a stick has been interfering with my ability to do things like think and breathe. You know, just the little things. ;P
Feeling like crap on a stick must be going around. Don't rush on the post. It will give me something to look forward to when I get back. :)
Have fun in New Orleans!

Have a great trip!

Hehehe. If I were to get one of those, I'd immediately repackage it and give it back, acting as if it were my gift to the idiot person who gave it to me. I'd raise eyebrows innocently if I got any confused looks in return.

Mmmmm. Ben. *mind wanders off*
I've never been to NO and since I could only get one day off work, it will be an all too short trip. I'm actually going for a wedding, but myself and some others do plan on squeezing in some site seeing (we've already talked about a tour of the cemetaries). I'll try to give a full report next week. :)
I've never been to NO, but I have a cousin who lives there and works in a resaurant, and he's always telling me I should come down and visit, and someday I'd like to do it because I'm sure it would be a lot of fun. I hope you have a good trip!

I'm afraid to try and google this, but I could swear that this has already been done, only the entire thing was done on pay-per-view, not just the "debut" of the "actress". For the sake of civilization, I only hope that I'm wrong about this.
Mary, I absolutely LOVED the card! Thank you so much! And I'm always reading your journal so I figured now is as good a time as any to friend you, if that's all right. Happiest of Holidays! Kathleen
Of course it's alright! Happy Holidays to you too. Hopefully, after the new year, I'll have time to lurk about your LJ too. ;-)
