Toddlers & Tiaras & Train Wrecks

leave a comment »

So I had several episodes of “Toddlers & Tiaras” on DVR. I hoped this would be the abomination I’m was fully expecting.

I wasn’t disappointed. Wow. My instant thoughts from the several episodes I watched.

— There was an ELEVEN-WEEK OLD DIVISION?

— I think the scariest people on this show are the emcees, particularly the male ones.

— Is it wrong that I laughed as hard as I did at those who cried because they didn’t win the ultimate mega supreme with stuffed crust award?

— What line of B.S. do the show’s producers feed these parents to make them think appearing on TV is a good idea? Especially since this is not the first season in the series.

Not sure if this show warrants a “series” recording on the ol’ DVR. I’ll probably scan the channel lineup another time or two in the months ahead and record additional episodes if I’m in the mood for it.

Used the Chris Hansen animated gif twice in one day. Zoinks, yo.

Dryer Heat

leave a comment »

Well, if the drying machine decided to call it a career at the kkk Manor.

There could have been a lot worse times of the year for the dryer to do so, what with the Fourth of July sales that are just around the corner. Eleven years, three moves and two states later: peace out.

Not bad for a $500 set.

To Catch Catching A Predator

leave a comment »

This story still doesn’t take away from the awesomeness that was “To Catch A Predator.” Now won’t you please have a seat over there?

He’s made his name with a controversial show that catches would-be internet sex perverts in televised stings.

But now Chris Hansen has found himself on the receiving end of his own hidden camera tactics, after the married NBC anchor was secretly filmed on an illicit date with a blonde television reporter 20 years his junior.

Hansen, 51, has allegedly been having an affair with Kristyn Caddell, a 30-year-old Florida journalist, for the last four months.

Last weekend he was recorded taking Miss Caddell on a romantic dinner at the exclusive Ritz-Carlton hotel in Manalapan, before spending the night at her Palm Beach apartment.

Hansen, who has two young sons, was caught in an undercover sting operation arranged by the National Enquirer.

Secret cameras filmed the couple as they arrived at the hotel for dinner and then drove back to her apartment – where the pair left, carrying luggage, at 8am the following day.

Hansen lives in Connecticut with his wife Mary, 53, but he has been spending more and more time in South Florida investigating the disappearance of James ‘Jimmy T’ Trindade – and allegedly sleeping with Miss Caddell.

I BAKED COOKIES!

Big Rig, Bigger Crash

leave a comment »

I have a question for those that cut-off big rigs — y’all realize those vehicles can’t break as quickly as cars, right? And if your vehicle and the big rig are to get into a collision, I’m putting my money on the big rig each time.

Now if you want your family to cash in on your life insurance policy, then by all means go for it.

Chickenarina Is Good For The Soul

leave a comment »

Normally I’m a Campbell’s Chunky soup type of person, but I swear Progresso’s Chickarina is worse than crack.

Seriously, it has all the perfect ingredients. A chicken-ey broth, chicken chunks, meatballs and little round noodles.

I’ve got the goodness of chicken noodle soup, an additional meatball flavor every other spoonful or so and “noodles” that do not require slurping or the collateral splash damage one gets from a noodle falling back into the soup.

Good stuff.

I Know Jack Is A Favorite Of Mine

leave a comment »

So the better half and I saw “Pirates of the Caribbean 4” this weekend. And after seeing this latest installment, I have to conclude that Jack Sparrow is one of my all-time favorite movie characters in the action/adventure genre. Not sure where he ranks, but he’s definitely above Indiana Jones.

That’s right. Indiana Jones. One of my all-time favorite characters, or so I thought.

How did I come to this conclusion? Well, Indy was great in “The Last Crusade,” very very good in “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” and so-so (at best) in “Temple of Doom.” (Let’s not talk about the fourth installment.)

On the other hand, Jack Sparrow was great/very very good in all four “Pirates” films. It will take some more years to see how these roles hold up over time, but as the better half and I were talking about “Pirates 4,” it dawned on me that I enjoyed this character more than I did Indy.

With all that said, Jack’s still no Han Solo.

Now for my opinion of the actual “Pirates 4” film. Well, if you watched the first three installments and felt those movies could use more Jack/Gibbs/Barbosa and less Legolas, then you will probably like this more. I liked it for what it was, which is just more of the same. And that’s not always a bad thing.

Knocked My Sox Off With Pirate Posts

with one comment

So the Pirates took two games out of three from the Boston Red Sox this weekend, and I have been seeing a number of pro-Pirate updates in my Facebook News Feed.

Color me impressed.

It’s going to be interesting to see how the region reacts to the Pirates if they continue winning as the summer goes along. I don’t think Pirate fans are expecting a World Series title. I don’t think Pirate fans are expecting the team to reach .500.

Just stay competitive.

And by “competitive,” I mean don’t finish a season with 100+ losses.
