We missed the Aguilera screech. In fact, we went to another cable channel altogether - Fox was oh, so nauseating (and our feed was "fat" - too wide for our t.v.).
Way to go, Packers!

Ha! Love the last one with Palin. Oh, so true.

Great, great funnies!

I do have to wonder about the Xtina factor. I mean if I knew I was going to sing at the biggest event (even bigger that Egypt's protests), I would definitely review the lyrics.

Or is she above that?

00dozo: It's a shame really. She can sure belt out a song when she wants to. But when she screws up the words she loses all credibility.

Quirks: You'd think so, wouldn't you. Oh, well, she's still better than Roseanne Barr.
It would be nice if some of these pseudo-talented divas would spend less time butchering the melody with their runs and embellishments and more time learning the words to the song.

Makes me sick. It's a majestic song. Just sing it.

Chris:What is it with these celebrities? Me, me, me. You know when Jose Feliciano sang the anthem years ago people thought he was just making fun of himself when he sang "Jose can you see?".

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
