It didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out who would win of this week's "Cat Ass Trophy" (catastrophe, for those not in the know). My cat, Possum S. Hemmingway, lovingly known as "Shithead", and I sat down last evening and after a brief discussion, we decided that former winner Rosie O"Donnell, also known as RO'FA, was this week's winner of the prestigious award.
After her performance this week on "The View" and her previous C.A.T. award winning performances, (see Wednesday's and Thursday's journal entries), she was the obvious choice. TMZ.com reported that Mr. O'Donnell possibly may not return to finish her contact which ends in June. TMZ further reported that Mr. O"Donnell trashed her dressing room after the verbal argument with Elisabeth Hasselbeck and was escorted off the premises after being discovered drawing moustaches on pictures of Ms. Hasselbeck. ABC confirmed that the pictures were vandalized, but said that Mr. O'Donnell was not present when the damage was discovered. Congratulations Rosie, You 'da man !
It's Friday and you're all invited to Krystel's for happy hour. I keep saying I'm going to snap some new pictures and with my razor sharp mind, I always forget. I also carry a map with me just in case I forget the route. I do, however, always remember the capital of Vermont and that evening in Paris (Texas). What?
Wacko Michael Jackson is going to the prince of Brunei's 25th birthday party, which reportedly will cost 14 million dollars, 10 million of which will be paid to Michael Jackson, whose only requirement is to show up.. Brunei is a small, oil-laden country in the mid-east and they obviously have their preferences in proper order. I wonder if O.J. was invited ?

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
A woman wanted to purchase a pet for her husband's birthday but discovered that they were too expensive. The pet shop owner told he her he did have cheap, large, female frogs in the rear of the store. The pet store owner said, "They say the frogs are excellent lovers. I don't know if it's true, but we've sold 30 of them this week."
The woman bought the frog as a "gag gift" for her husband and told him about the frog's supposed ability. Later on that night, the woman was awakened by banging sounds coming from the kitchen. When she entered, she found the man holding the large frog, while reading a cookbook.
The woman asked her husband, "What in hell are you doing?" The man replied, "If I can teach this frog to cook, your ass is gone !"
That's it for today, my little wine sippers. See you tonight at Krystel's. More tomorrow.
