It's Thursday and I'm getting a little uneasy. Why, you ask? Well, we haven't really got a candidate for Asshole of The Week. I'm not overly concerned because we have standbys, who can always be used in a pinch. Take for instance, (A) Simon Cowell, who in his infinite wisdom, chose to roll his eyes when one of the idol contestants gave his condolences to the victims of the Virginia Tech massacre. He said afterward that he didn't hear what the contestant was saying and he was reacting to the performance.
My friend, Jackie, who writes a journal entitled "Life In Bama" suggested last Friday that we carry over last weeks "Cat Ass Trophy" award winner, (A) Al Sharpton for a second week as champion. He certainly will be considered.
All things being equal, I'll patiently wait until this evening and confer with "Shithead" (my cat and co-judge) as to the recipient of this weeks winner. Any suggestions?
The Pictures: Willie Nelson, today's featured artist. The second picture is Willie and Jessica Simpson. It really doesn't have any merit other that the fact that I like Jessica Simpson and it's my journal. Of course there's some additional pictures, too.
This Date In History: 1775; The "shot heard 'round the world" is fired at British troops at Lexington, Massachusetts, beginning the American Revolution. 1956; American movie star Grace Kelly becomes Princess Grace of Monaco when she marries Prince Ranier III of Monaco. 1982; American astronaut Sally Ride is the first woman selected for the NASA program. 1993; After a 51day siege, U.S federal agents storm the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas; a fire breaks out killing at least 80 Branch members including leader David Koresh. 1995; A truck bomb blows up putside the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma killing 168 people.
Since the IRS has been in the news this week and "always on my mind", I thought I'd let you listen to Willie Nelson sing "You Don't Know Me" (FYI: After Willie's video, you'll see three more songs, along with the artist's name and a brief description of each song. You can play them if you want to hear the song. Just click 'em. Additionally, there's a slide scroll bar to the right of the screen which will allow you to see other selections also).
Birthdays: Dudley Moore, actor, comedian and musician (1935).
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: TVGuide has replaced the "gag me with a spoon" duo of Joan and Melissa Rivers with Lisa Rinna as host of the "red carpet" shows. Since most of the TV Guide spots are filled with a bunch of no-talents, this is a pretty good move. Now I can eat a sandwich while I'm surfing the guide instead of sticking a sharp pencil in my ear.
Post Script: 11:30 a.m.; Sanjaya got the boot. Here's the Video.
If a man and woman from New Orleans get married, move to California and then get divorced, are they still legally brother and sister?
That's it for today, my little Texas two steppers. More tomorrow.
