Crazy people…part deux

Filed under: It's All About Me,Sporty Spice — by Nicole @ 9:54 pm

I know you were all on pins and needles waiting for the outcome of the Yankee ticket drama. If you don’t recall the saga, do yourself a favor and refresh your memory…you won’t regret it. Unfortunately, our original quest to take this litigation to Judge Joe Brown was squashed by a producer who stated ours was a “slam dunk” case that wouldn’t make for good TV. However, I am pleased to report that after a trip to the Bronx Small Claims Court, the “Southern Gentleman and Scholar” has been defeated, as the arbitrator ruled in our favor. What this means is that this mothereffer owes us the money in question, plus costs. No big shocker there. Given the fact that he didn’t bother to show up for court, collecting should prove to be a challenge. In the event that he refuses to pay, we’ll need to hire a marshal to go after his ass, and the cost of said marshal will be SGS’ responsibility as well. If that doesn’t work, y’all might be recruits in a shakedown operation. Details to follow.

Just over 12 hours until our 8 year national nightmare is over!!!!! It’s gonna be hard to sleep tonight…

P.S. Is it wrong to revel in the schadenfreude that comes with the news that the dickiest Dick of them all pulled a back muscle while (finally) moving out and will have to attend the inauguration in a wheelchair? Considering the number of people that were wounded and killed as a result of his lies and evil, I think not. Good riddance, douche.

Real reality TV

Filed under: Issues In The News — by Nicole @ 6:14 pm

OK, it’s reality via YouTube, but it’s a must-watch. It pretty much sums up what they won’t seem to say in the mainstream media about the terrorists that run the Palestinian government and their hideous and deceptive actions which led to the current situation in Gaza. I don’t think it makes me any less of a liberal to side against Hamas, even though for some reason support for Israel seems to be construed as a right-wing position. I welcome comments from all perspectives.

Here’s what I don’t get…

Filed under: Issues In The News — by Nicole @ 11:24 pm

Don’t birds fly, like all the time? Is that not what they do all day long? Am I missing something here? My question is, how the fuck do they not notice a freaking airplane coming straight at them? Are these suicidal birds? Are they depressed about the economy? Have they recently gone through a breakup? Do their parents not understand them? Do they feel they have nowhere else to turn? That is the only explanation I can come up with as to why these ornithological creatures would ignore their exponentially larger manmade winged brethren in the sky and go for broke right into the engines kamikaze-style. I’m not planning on losing any sleep over it, but birds: you are on notice. You’re giving the animal kingdom a bad name with this nonsense. Straighten up and fly right (I couldn’t help myself).

Fuuuuuuuuuck. No way that just happened. Ineptitude, today thy name is Eli. I believe that now is the time to follow the immortal words of one Mr. Blutarski: “My advice: start drinking heavily.”

Bird is the word

It’s been so long since my last post, I don’t know where to begin. It has been what seems like the busiest week of my life. Everyone has those times where it feels like you never stop running from place to place and eventually you just have to crash. I’m still catching up on sleep, but I cannot forsake this poor blog any longer. NYC got dumped with snow yesterday, and though it looked pretty while falling, it definitely slowed things down. That didn’t prevent a pretty pruductive day, though. I was able to participate in a mini law school reunion with some friends I see all the time and one that I haven’t seen since just after graduation. A good time was had by all, and I haven’t laughed that much in ages. The afternoon and evening were spent filming my video entry for “The Biggest Loser” (thanks J!). I expect that when (not if) I make it on the show, that you, my dear readers, will comprise my initial fan club. I’m counting on you! Today involves a huge Giants game, some domestic duties, and a refusal to get dressed beyond sweatpants (too cold in my apartment today to exercise my usual pants-optional Sunday policy). This week should be more reasonable, so I’ll hopefully have some more time to blog. Any topical suggestions can be left in the comments. Enjoy the remainder of the weekend, y’all!

P.S. I realize that the title of this post has nothing to do with anything I wrote, but I’ve been repetitively watching what could only be described as one of the funniest “Family Guy” sequences ever, and it’s still playing on a loop in my head. “Family Guy” + “Office Space” = comedy gold.

A very happy new year

Filed under: bitchin' and moanin' — by Nicole @ 1:40 pm

This is the post I had planned on for yesterday but forgot to put up on this here blog:

Viacom and Time Warner Cable are currently at a stalemate, and the result of their unproductive bargaining means that a ton of channels will be stripped from cable packages as of tomorrw. This, my dear readers, is horseshit. I, for one, will be devastated by the loss of Comedy Central, MTV (don’t judge – I love me some unreality TV), LOGO (face it – the gays do everything better), TV Land, Nick at Nite, and more. Give me a damn break. How much is digital cable again? Oh, that’s right – over $130 per month. Can you honestly tell me that isn’t enough to cover some staple networks? I think not. Get it together, assholes.

Well, I am thrilled to report that my telepathic powers worked and that upon waking up this morning (ok, this afternoon) I found that the dispute had been settled. As I took a commercial break from football, I clicked over to a “Brady Bunch” re-run and for one brief second, flashed on the possibility tat it would be blacked out, but upon seeing Florence Henderson’s ridonkulous hair in all its glory, I knew that all was right with the world.

Hope you all had a wonderful celebration last night and that you got home safe and sound. Happy New Year!!!
