Runaway Bride

All the frickin' coverage on this horrible Julia Child movie wannabe (and we all know how horrid that actually could be!), but imagine how much worse 24 cable news would be with this story if she had a feeding tube!!

Not the pomp and circumstance of say JPII, but we actually took my sister's statue of St. Joseph and buried it in our backyard - upside down!!!!!. Supposedly this ritual is to aid one in selling their house. Tricia swears it worked to sell her house and her in-law's house as well. So did Julie (well not her in-law's house). It's an act I'm willing to take part of, but it's all superstition for me.

There are dozens of websites out there dedicated to here and here. You can even buy your "kit" on-line. $9.95. The catholic church was never so cheap!

Oh there is supposed be a prayer you say while/after you bury St. Joe. I didn't actually say it. It doesn't really say anything about real estate. I'll take my chances.

Be mindful of us, O Blessed Joseph, and intercede for us with thy foster-Son by the pleading of thy prayer: do thou, in like manner, render the blessed Virgin Mary, thy Spouse, gracious unto us, for she is the Mother of Him, Who with the Father and the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth world without end. Amen.

Another Reason to go Apple !!!!

Microsoft Comes Under Fire for Reversal on Gay Rights Bill
SEATTLE, April 21 - The Microsoft Corporation, at the forefront of corporate gay rights for decades, is coming under fire from gay rights groups, politicians and its own employees for withdrawing its support for a state bill that would have barred discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.

Many of the critics accused the company of bowing to pressure from a prominent evangelical church in Redmond, Wash., located a few blocks from Microsoft's sprawling headquarters.

Dr. Hutcherson, pastor of the Antioch Bible Church, who has organized several rallies opposing same-sex marriage here and in Washington, D.C., said he threatened in those meetings to organize a national boycott of Microsoft products.

After that, "they backed off," the pastor said Thursday in a telephone interview. "I told them I was going to give them something to be afraid of Christians about," he said.

Because that is really want from your church and religion. Ruling through fear and intimidation. You know, I might end up in hell, and even might be able to narrow it down to the reasons why I'm there. Guys like this will be there going, "wha-wha-what?"

Two things Microsoft shoud know: One is most of this chumps fanbase isn't moving to Linux or Apple because they just don't know better. Secondly, in the computer world, like it or not (and I don't) Microsoft is bigger than g-d.

Disclaimer: I am forced to use MS in my office, but am a happy Powerbook user in real-life.

I can't let this one go. It's so twisted. So wrong/right. So funny. I definately can't even wait a few weeks to make it May's site of the month.

It's been a coon's age since I've blogged. But in my mind, it's all understandable. If you go down a few entries, you'll see we were looking for a house - and we found one. I no longer have a link to the property, since they took it off the market after our bid was accepted (stupid f*cking seller/lawyer!).

But as of today, our house is up on the market. I'm hoping for a quick sell (isn't everyone who puts a house on the market?). The upkeep, the cleaning, the cats are just too much to fret about. Oh - and two mortgages. That would kind of suck too.

So if anyone you know is looking for a nicely upkept colonial in Cleveland Heights - just go to the Smythe Cramer site and purchase at full asking price.

I'm sure I'll be blogging about the process, the sale and the move. Sorry in advance.

Per Per Rex Smith. This is what he's been reduced to: showing rental units in the Valley. But they are properties that 'will take your breath away' and houses that you'll 'everlasting love' (ok, I added that one).

Does being a 'Solid Gold' host or starring on B'Way w/LaRonstadt & Kevin Kline mean nothing in Actor's Equity? Clearly, these questions are rhetorical.

Thanks to Jon for supplying the link. He *swears* he saw it on MSNBC. I think he got it from his fanzine.

Poor Poor Ms. Wheelchair Wisconsin

It's like a fricking article out of the World Weekly News - but it's not. Straight from the AP. The quote from the treasurer of Ms. Wheelchair America is the best.
