Well all good things must come to an end, and thus ends the Sooners dreams in the NCAA Tourney. Hats off to the Hoosiers -- they played their hearts out and made just about every 3-pointer they shot in the second half, unlike the Sooners. We were simply outplayed (and maybe just a wee bit outreffed). Not bad for a "rebuilding year" though -- I'll take a Final Four bid any ol' time! Congrats to this year's Sooner men's squad. And best of luck to the Sooner women tomorrow night in San Antonio!

Congrats to the Sooner ladies! They crushed the Dooooook Lady Blue Devils 86-71 tonight in their Final Four game -- making this the first Big XII women's squad in history to play in a Final Four game and for the National Championship! The largest audience to ever view an NCAA women's game was in attendance this evening. The Sooner women will take on the winner of the Tennessee/UConn game in the NCAA title game Sunday night.

A good pointe
I just watched a segment on Tech Live that fascinated me. I quit ballet at an early age (I was just too tall and lanky to be graceful), but several of my friends continued on. A few of them darn-near caused their parents to go bankrupt over the cost of pointe shoes, still using a 1905 design made from layers of burlap, cardboard, newspaper and tiny nails. Good pointe shoes run about $45/pair now, but "due to the rigors of dancing en pointe, a traditional shoe may last only one hour".

A new company called Gaynor Minden is using technology and elastomeric plastics for a better pointe shoe for the 21st century. They are being called the Air Jordans of the ballet world -- and can last up to five days. The pricetag runs about $85 -- almost twice as expensive as their counterpart. But then again, the Gaynor Mindens also come with at least 3-4 times the shelf-life. Not all teachers are convinced -- and there are "cons" (read more in this article). But at least it's a start!

Thanks to everyone who's written to let me know that Todd and Susan's blogs are out of bandwidth. I just want to point out that it's not the fault of Blogomania, as Todd's domain excessbloggage.com was setup before Blogomania even existed. It's not really Todd's fault either, as his account was set to stay online regardless of the bandwidth situation. We're in the process of a server-hop right now to fix things, so please be patient... Hopefully it won't make for a very long weekend on my end!

Oops, she's not yet a woman
And apparently not much of a thinker either! (Article from MSNBC.com)

"When told that Alastair Campbell is a big fan of hers, Britney Spears asked who he is. 'Hes Tony Blairs right-hand man,' Spears was told, according to the London Daily Mirror. 'Tony Blair?' said Britney. 'Ive never heard of him either. Who is he?' Spears was told that Mr. Blair is the prime minister. 'Oh!,' she reportedly gasped. 'Hes very important then if hes the prime minister. Thats a real tough job, isnt it? Its really cool that this guy Alastair Campbell likes me, then.'"

She's scheduled to appear next on the Tonight Show's "Jay Walking" to discuss U.S. foreign policy and the crush that guy, you know, 'who would like take over if Bush is unable to fulfill his duties during his Presidential reign' has on her... Don't hate her because she's beautiful.

This space for rent
Drumroll please...the big review! Last night I purchased my first GnomeTome. Since the project is brand new and most of the titles are Windows-centric this early on, I opted for the "Optimize Internet Explorer / Outlook Express" title. Todd uses Outlook Express on his machine, and even my iBook has Internet Explorer on it, so it seemed the best "fit" to start with.

I must say I was pleasantly surprised! I rarely read tech manuals -- that's Todd's job. But this one sucked me right in. There were several tips at first glance that I couldn't wait to pull him over and show him, and the one regarding pop-up windows was worth the cost of the eBook alone, IMHO! We both give it two thumbs up.

So I've decided to make Chris an offer la "Major League". I'll have Todd snap a nudie pic of me -- and I'll make it into a puzzle in Photoshop. For every OS X-related eBook GnomeTomes releases, we'll e-mail him a piece of the puzzle. What? It could happen! Chris already got a teaser last night. *wink*

Where was I? Oh yeah. These are worth the money folks! Skip that extra value meal and go grab one or three right now. That's an order!

We couldn't find it online yet, but Todd heard the latest "Bud Light salutes real men of genius" ad on the radio tonight -- popping open their cans to the inventor of edible panties. (Commercials first spotted over at Meredith's awhile back.)

We did, however, find this most excellent archive of past "Bud Light salutes..." commercials. It includes several of the newer ones. I thought we were going to fall off the couch when we listened to the "nudist colony activity coordinator" and "horse-drawn carriage driver" ads! In fact, I think we need a CD of these...oh Bud Light...

Well slap my ass and call me Judy!
Todd just e-mailed me with heads-up that the Bucs 2002 schedule is set. I turn 30 on November 28th (Thanksgiving Day this year...ick). On November 24th, Josh Heupel and the Green Bay Packers are coming to town. Since fate screwed me out of seeing my Joshy at the pre-season Monday Night Football game last year (and the team scrimmages), I think this is truly karma's way of making things up. Now the question is...if faced with Gruden, Lynch, and Heupel all within a matter of yards of me...will I spontaneously combust?

New Maladroit version released!
Pssssst...to the Weezer fans in the audience! weezah.net has the latest version of the Maladroit demo online. I didn't have any luck with their FTP, but you can get them on the "audio / video" page. Download rates are horrid, but worth it -- they are excellent quality! Make sure you get the AAF-Z files for the 13 tracks. Those are the new ones released on 3/26. I have a copy of the promo demo Rivers Cuomo sent out to stations last month, and these new versions blow them out of the water!

Now before you get all "downloading MP3s and then burning them to a CD is wrong and steals from the artists" on my ass...I suggest you go and read the history of Maladroit first. The very reason the fans have the tracks is because Weezer wants us to. They were originally released on weezer.com and the underground helps keep them going. I guarandamntee you that I will be the first in line to purchase Maladroit when/if it comes out. But 'til then, Keep Fishin' keeps me warm at night!

And in somewhat related news
"The Vatican has come up with a simple solution to the Catholic Church's recent sex scandal: Eliminate gay priests. 'People with these inclinations just cannot be ordained,' says Vatican spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls, responding to the sex scandals sweeping the American Catholic Church in recent weeks......Turning the scandals into a 'gay' issue allows the church to suggest that it, too, is a victim in the scandal. Rather than being responsible for pedophile priests, the church can portray itself as victimized by gays who have sneaked into the priesthood." (Article from Salon.com)

Yeah, that's it! I'm so glad the Church finally figured that out for us. Because I think we all know that 'straight' folks would never, ever molest children -- now don't we? Oh, wait:

"At least one well-know clinical psychologist who has treated victims and priests in more than 2,000 clergy sexual abuse cases even says he believes victims are much more likely to be girls and women."

"Something fishy is going on in one Long Island laboratory. Scientists at Touro College in Bay Shore, New York, are developing sustainable food sources for space flight -- food that is, at first glance, a fish grown in a dish.

Lisa you with your stories...beer kills brain cells...
"He was proclaimed the 'greatest genius to ever grace the Earth'. With a purported IQ of 298, he was taking college classes when most children his age were starting grade school.

But 8-year-old Justin Chapman's genius is in doubt after his mother admitted faking some of his test results. The boy has been put in foster care after what was thought to be a suicide attempt.

The boy has been a celebrity since age 3. But things began to fall apart last month after reporters examined his purported accomplishments and the role of his mother.

Chapman admitted she fabricated most if not all of her son's top achievements: a perfect 800 on the math section of the SAT, a genius score at age 3 on the Wechsler Intelligence Scale test and an IQ score of 298-plus on the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale at age 6.

'I just got caught up in it,' she told the Rocky Mountain News, which broke the story along with The New York Times. 'I wanted to be a good mom and give him opportunities I didn't have. I don't do anything halfway. It was wrong. I made some poor choices.'" (Article from CNN.)

Ya' think, maybe? Your 8-year old kid is already trying suicide to get away from you and the pressure of being perfect. It's one thing when your child is born a genius and you try to give them every opportunity possible. It's quite another thing when you've fabricated their entire existance by the age of 8, leaving them a legacy they can never possibly live up to before they even hit puberty. I think your punishment should be something along the lines of having to take the stupid SAT every day for the rest of your damn life, lady... Somedays it just seems everyone gets a kid but the ones who are truly "ready and deserving".

Here come those claws again
Ok, I feel like I can finally let loose on last night's Miss Oscar, since Mikey has opened the door. I griped about it briefly here, and not-so-briefly here, but hesitated to put it up front-and-center because people sometimes tend to have a short attention span and can't see through to the true core of a rant. Call me slightly paranoid after having the racist card thrown in my face more times than I care to count on my anti-Puffy site, I guess...

But now I'm just going to come out and say it. I don't give a flyin' flip if she is America's new sweetheart -- I can't stand Halle Berry. She's a bitch. Remember that little 'accident' she had back in 2000? I mean, how could you forget? She wore that stupid little butterfly band-aid on her brow for at least a month longer than the doctor prescribed. And for every interview she went on post-Golden Globes win, the interviewer would ask about the accident, and the bowels of hell were unleashed upon them. You see, it was quite fine to fret over Halle. To worry about Halle. To make sure she was ok. But that pompous bitch DARED you to even bring up the injured people she left behind. She was hurt. She was scared. She was bleeding and out of her mind. "She know not what she do." Ok, fine Halle. This was your first time and we all make mistakes, right? Oh wait, I'm sorry...this wasn't your first time?

Yes, that's right. Last night's darling apparently has poor driving skills but a really good flee-the-scene record. ANY OTHER citizen of this country would have their license revoked, their insurance cut, and their ass in jail. But not Miss Berry. Oh no, she gets the People 'Best Dressed' List. And I will give the woman credit. She knows how to select an evening gown -- unique to every occasion. And she looks damn good in them.

Before you try and get all "oh you're so racist and you just can't stand to see an African American woman win the first Oscar ever when you just wanted the pale, white redhead to take home the prize instead" on my ass -- I'd like to remind you that I am still bitching Whoopi didn't win the little golden man for "The Color Purple". Yes, still. I nearly leapt up out of my seat when Denzel snagged his Best Actor nod last night. I believe my exact words were, "It's about damned time!"

Halle Barry is a fake, and I have no doubt that one day Hollywood will finally figure this out. I dare you to watch any acceptance speech the woman has ever given back-to-back and then feel moved by the one she gave last night. Every reaction is the same. Yes, I got slammed in my comments earlier for comparing it to a Miss America "OHMYGOD, I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU PICKED MEEEEE!" reaction. But did you see the woman when they panned in on her. She had to have watched at least one tape from Atlantic City for practice. Oh wait, nevermind. She just watched her last acceptance speech. My bad.

Oprah's speech about Halle's win moved me. Halle's did not. While I can't believe it took SEVENTY FOUR years to award an African American actress Hollywood's highest honors, I also can't believe Halle Berry is the one walking home with the goodie basket. Whoever her publicist is, give 'em a raise. (And whoever her stylist is, avoid friendships with Gwyneth's...)

I just hope that parents won't use Halle as a role model to their children. Because if they do, they are also teaching them that with a lot of money and a pretty face you can lawyer your way out of a hit-and-run -- and I don't care if you are an actress or a private citizen -- any way you slice it, it's just wrong. Still don't care? Then consider Mikey's closing words: "If she had hit you and fled the scene, would you be happy to see her win an Oscar?"

Monday Mission
I remembered to do the "Monday Mission" this week!
  1. What helps you get started every morning? My Diet Coke and a new and different "I love you", always waiting, from Todd...
  2. What is the most memorable thing anyone has ever made for you? From recent memory, it would have to be these two gifts from Stephanie and from Jana.
  3. What music are you currently listening to in your car? The new Weezer CD "Maladroit" (that may, or may not, be released one day).
  4. One thing I like to do is buy USA Today on Wed, Thur and Fri. Even if I don't have the money, I will find a way to buy them, because I just love reading them. What is one "splurge" you allow yourself, even when you shouldn't? I guess InStyle Magazine and Martha Stewart Weddings, even though it's going on six years since I was a bride myself.
  5. Have you ever been given a "second chance?" What happened and did you make the most of it? Yes. And I married him. I plan on making the most of it every day for the rest of my life!
  6. Do you have a lot of friends outside of your own ethnic background? Not really here in Tampa Bay, but definitely when I lived in Oklahoma!
  7. What was the last situation that really, really pissed you off? I won't go into all the gory details, but someone decided to bitch-slap me with a 2-page e-mail ranting and raving about a website of "mine" that "stole" their idea and one-upped them. They never bothered to research that I had nothing to do with the site in question, its ownership, or its creation and development. I became involved much after the fact on a very limited scope. And needless to say, I got a pseudo-apology, but that 'friendship' is now toast.
BONUS: Who's your friend when things get rough? I don't get the bonus this week either, looks like...but the real answer is Todd, of course!

Never let 'em see you sweat...really
From CNN: "One of the hottest treatments being offered to starlets this year is underarm botox shots. Widely used in the entertainment industry, botox is typically injected into facial muscles. The poison causes key muscle groups to become paralyzed, preventing facial expressions like frowning and smiling that can lead to wrinkles.

The underarm version prevents perspiration, saving those $25,000 couture gowns from the unsightly staining that can result from excessive sweating."

And here I was last week bitching that Secret had gone up to $4 a tube at Wal Mart! Who knew you could just paralyze that sweat away...
