Ricky Crisis

Okay, gossip time. You've seen the name Geoff on here several times, and you know we consider him a friend. What you didn't know is that Geoff is a bit of a loose wire. He frequently gets pissed at us for reasons that no other person in the world would find annoying, and will not speak to us for sometimes a couple of weeks to a few months. Then, one day, he'll show up at our door as though nothing ever happened, which in our opinion is true. We have come to another of those incidents. At his urging, I purchased an antenna to pick up HD signals on my TV. But the antenna only picks up local stations. Robb and I don't watch much TV, but when we do, it's usually CNN, MSNBC or the Comedy Channel. About the only regular watching we do is during football season. Needless to say, even though the picture is really great with the HD antenna, it isn't practical for us because, except for football season, we don't watch the local channels. For reasons that still don't make sense to me, Geoff became incensed at that. He shouted at us and walked out, slamming the door behind him. A few minutes later, we got the usual "I hate you. You're typical Americans and I want nothing to do with either of you" email. We're not so sure we want anything more to do with him, either, but we'll see how it works out this time. We have a new friend named Pascal, who was born and raised in Paris but now lives here. He also has suffered the Geoff tirade and was profoundly shocked at such behavior. Of course, they are once again best friends because the cooling period has passed.
I thought this picture of Obama editing his speech was very interesting. It just keeps getting better, doesn't it? Obama to allow gas and oil drilling off Virginia coast. The conspiracy people are already talking about Obama as being hand-picked for the job. I'm beginning to believe them.
"Health premiums could rise 17 pct for young adults" The insurance industry has only four years to line their pockets, surely you didn't think they were just going to sit by and let this opportunity pass them by?
Catholics find ties to the church tested by crisis. I don't understand all the fuss. You mean, just because a "man of God" stands in front of you, extolling the virtues of morality and then goes back to his office where he fondles the altar boy du jour, you're going to doubt him? Next thing you know, someone will say you have to be really stupid to be Catholic.
Auto industry group spent $1.4M on lobbying in 4Q. Excuse me, isn't this the same industry we bailed out with about 15 BILLION dollars?
Ricky Martin Comes Out. Is anyone else shocked?
PINOCCHIO had a human girlfriend who would sometimes complain about splinters when they were having sex. Pinocchio, therefore, went to visit Gepetto to see if he could help. Gepetto suggested he try a little sandpaper wherever indicated and Pinocchio skipped away enlightened.
A couple weeks later, Gepetto saw Pinocchio bouncing happily through town and asked him, "How's the girlfriend?"
Pinocchio replied, "Who needs a girlfriend?"
À la prochaine, mes amis
