How is that going to work?
Organizers of the 2008 Beijing Olympics have broken ground on their 100,000 seat stadium. At this rate, the 2008 Olympics facilities will be completed just ahead of the facilities for the 2004 Athens Olympics.
A differant kind of performance
*There is a new gay soccer league in Mexico. Gay soccer is a little differant; instead of steroids, the only performance enhancing drug is Viagra.
Can you say Macy's float?
*An A.P. poll shows that President Bush and John Kerry are running neck and neck. Which means Kerry is ahead due that big ol' head of his.
*Our Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, reportedly saved a struggling swimmer's life in Maui. The bad news? When the guy went to his car, he was accidentally run over by Gray Davis.
*You could tell the 9/11 panel was going to be tough on Condoleezza Rice. Before swearing her in they asked Rice if she wanted to be steamed or fried.
It's not good to be the King
*Rodney King was arrested for driving 100 mph and crashing into a house. Before sentencing, Rodney pleaded to the judge; "Can't we all just get a long probation?"
Rodney King was charged with speeding and crashing into a house and sentenced to 120 days in jail. That means the rest of us have four months of safe driving.
I'm starting to think that Rodney King isn't practicing safe, defensive driving techniques.
*The last place 2003 Detroit Tigers are 4-0 and in first place. Even John Kerry was impressed with that reversal.
A little differant
*There is a Boston Red Sox movie called "Still, We Believe”. It's sort of the opposite of "Passion of the Christ." In 'Still, We Believe" the fans suffer for the sins of the Red Sox.
Billy big bucks
*Bill Gates is no longer the richest man in the world, he is number 2. Good thing Gates got married when he did.
Bill Gates is not the richest man in the world according to a Swedish magazine, the founder of Ikea is now the richest. And to think I had no idea there were that many gay apartments.
How about it?
*You know the show "The Bachelor"? So far the bachelors have been an ex-model, a rich guy and now a handsome NFL quarterback, the only three guys who don't any need help getting laid. (getting girls) When are they going to give the Blockbuster clerk who drives a Vega a shot?
*The third "Matrix" movie comes out on DVD. The Matrix DVD features out-takes that actually sucked more than the movie itself. Amazing.
*The White House easter egg hunt is this weekend, the bad news for the kids is that the President is at home in Texas. The good news is that Bush's dog, Barney, won't be there so, unlike last year, no children will mistakenly think they found a chocolate Easter bunny on the lawn.
Since you asked:
She did it again. Not two days after the famous bee comment, my daughter, Ann Caroline, came up with another one.
Ann Caroline is five, so her grasp of numbers, I like to think, isn't all that great. I may be wrong. She asked me how old I am. Now, I knew I was in for trouble, but I told her anyway.
Ann Caroline verily bellowed:
"Whoa, hoo, haa, whoa, that's weally, weally old." (She still isn't a stickler with the r sound)
"No it is not," I replied with mock indignance. With a straight, serious face, Ann Caroline said;
"Oh yes it is, my friend."
