Selecting the winner of this week's Cat's Ass Trophy was a slam dunk ! There's always one in the crowd and you can usually figure out who it is just by listening to him or her speak. It's the person who's happy to tell you that the movie "Titanic" has a crummy ending because the ship sinks. As you roll your eyes in disbelief, you are suddenly invigorated with the thought that this jerk is only 40 to 50 minutes away from a "Stevie Wonder head roll" and will pass out, usually with a one and a half twist into a nice coffee table or better yet, the pool.
Yes, my little puppies, the Cat's Ass Trophy goes to all of those fine folks who were involved in the premature leaking and printing of the new Harry Potter book. May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your girlfriend !
Speaking of the Harry Potter series, I have never read the book nor seen any of the movies 'cause that's not exactly my type of fantasy, but I'm always happy to see kids reading. The mere thought of a child growing up somewhat literate is always encouraging, especially in this day and age.
AREA 51 REPORT: As I told you yesterday, I really needed to "escape" yesterday and I hooked up with fellow AREA 51 inmates, Hector and Lourdes. We went to an insurance covention located in Doral, an excellent, first class hotel resort destination. The food and drinks were all complementary and we really enjoyed ourselves.
Later in the evening, we met up with Al and Lydia at a restaurant lounge called Capriccios in Broward County. We had a great time chatting, dancing and enjoying the music. As per my usual, I forced the band at gunpoint to allow me to sing a song or two. I also ran met a new friend and we danced the night away. I'm calling Al and Lydia later to see if I had a good time. We're all going over to Emilio and Melina's tonight for a get-together.
The Pictures: I just started clicking and before I knew it there was a shipload (you thought I was going to say "shitload", didn't you). Anyway, there's redneck jokes and all sorts of stuff today, Of course, as always, a picture for Indigo and the "usual suspects".
