"And God populated the Earth with broccoli and cauliflower and spinach, green and yellow vegetables of all kinds, so Man would live a long and healthy life.Ain't it da' truth, baby? Ain't it da' truth... (Link via Sensible Erection.)
But Satan created McDonald's. And McDonald's brought forth the double cheeseburger. And McDonald's said to Man 'You want fries with that?' And Man gained pounds." Author Unknown
Oh I wish I were already there, instead of here, playing this song.Big Mac, Filet-O-Fish, Quarter Pounder, french fries, icy Coke, thick shake, sundaes, and apple pies!
And I would have a big chocolate shake, a cheeseburger, and also.....whoops.....and also fries.
And I would eat, my fries myself. And not give none, to my dumb brother. Hands off they're mine, all miiiiiine.
My recital is almost done, it wasn't bad. I'm still alive. And I can have my big chocolate shake, my cheeseburger, and also.....fries.
I, I just want to be your everything
Open up the heaven in your heart and let me be
The things you are to me and not some puppet on a string
Oh, if I stay here without you, darling, I will die
I want you laying in the love I have to bring
I'd do anything to be your everything
Darling for so long
You and me been finding each other for so long
And the feeling that I feel for you is more then strong girl
Take it from me
If you give a little more then you're asking for
Your love will turn the key......

"The truth is, Marriott offered nothing in the way of intellectual stimulation, or entertainment, except for the occasional laugh at his own expense." The Maneater, University of Missouri student newspaperGee, there's a review you didn't see coming. I realize it is Mizzou and all, but just exactly who did they think they were booking? At least OU invited the likes of Jimmy Fallon and Ben Stein. I mean, did they even watch the show? Marriott made a foot-fetish and bondage film actress look classy in comparison. When asked his opinion of the University of Missouri, Marriott replied, "It’s really cool because it is a college campus. There’s dorms. It has a very college campus feel." Wisdom for the ages, man... (Read more at MSNBC.com's "The Scoop".)
Michael Moore...will raise even more eyebrows with his next project. According to Variety, his next film will depict the relationship between George Bush Sr. and the family of Osama bin Laden...a documentary that will trace why the U.S. has become a target for hatred and terrorism. "It certainly does deal with the Bush and bin Laden ties," Moore said. "It asks a number of questions that I don't have the answers to yet, but which I intend to find out." Moore has already put a year's worth of research into the film...he'll finish it in time for Cannes 2004...released in time for the presidential election that fall.

"That's right," said God, "a few good thunderbolts would really
"But their ABM defenses would probably stop them."
God sat back and thought for a while. Gabriel fingered his valves.
"I suppose everything is fireproof," God finally said.
"Everything but the slums," said Gabriel, "and if you burn those out, they'll only rebuild with modern developments."
God was silent for a long time.
"Listen," He said, smiling weakly, "what the hell. Maybe... maybe we'll just forget about it for now. Maybe I'll give them a little more time -- after all, they are my own children, aren't they?"
"Ok by me," said Gabriel. "You want to hear a little somethin' anyway... I mean, as long as I already got the horn out?"
"All right," God finally said softly, leaning back wearily in His chair and closing His eyes.
"Play me some blues!"

Molly Ringwald moves back to her hometown, and starts pining away for her boyfriend Jake, who she apparently followed to college. It didn't work out...and she subsequently lost touch with him.Ok...let's lighten the atmosphere around here... Post your favorite quote!
Anthony Michael Hall, the triumphant hero rolls in, now a multi-millionaire vis-a-vis inventing some goddamn fancy-dancy search engine and...apparently hilarity ensues?

This weekend, March 1st and 2nd, I would like to show Marvelous March our appreciation for coming. I would like for everyone to post on their blog one thing that makes them happy this weekend, be it a blogger, pancakes on Saturday morning or birds chirping outside. Secondly, I would like a picture of something that made you smile. -- "anything but ordinary"
From UPI: But the Douglases [Michael and Catherine] are people who occasionally do go to work, on movie sets, where they're likely to notice some minimum-wage production assistants bringing them coffee. They presumably have a state-of-the-art entertainment center that does receive CNN. I presume they've occasionally been sent a script that has actual working-class people in it. In other words, they must know, at some level, that "some people in this room" who think $1.6 million is more than a pittance represent approximately 99.9 percent of the people in the world.I'm certainly not putting my money on her winning an Oscar now after reading this, and all of the above! Sounds like The Douglases are in very real danger of becoming The Gekkos.
To put that $1.6 million in perspective: If you placed that money in the lowliest passbook savings account, the kind the Douglases will never have because it's for people who only have $500 to start with, and you get the lowest interest rate paid anywhere in the world -- currently around 1.8 percent -- you earn $28,800 a year, enough for some families to survive on.
The idea that 1.8 percent of what they call a pittance is a living wage somewhere, and that they don't realize it, is a testament to just how divided by class we've become. (More also found at "The Daily Dish".)
Band Sausages -- where you take two or more bands and combine their names together to make a whole new band. Example: The Beastie Boyz II Men, The Crystal Methods Of Mayhem, Grateful Dead or Alive. Get it? There's no real hardcore rules. Be creative. Squeeze as many bands as you can in, like this person did the last time I played this game: Shakespear's Sisters of Mercyful Fate's Warning.To add your group-combo to the pile, just surf on over there...
Kate Winslet got digitally altered to look skinny — and there’s a lot of finger pointing going on over who’s responsible.Article from MSNBC.com's Scoop. Photos from discoverkate.com.
The “Titanic” star is one of the few celebs who has said she’s happy with her extra curves.
“What is sexy?” Winslet says in an interview with current British GQ. “All I know from the men I’ve ever spoken to is that they like girls to have an arse on them, so why is it that women think in order to be adored they have to be thin?”
So Winslet’s fans were shocked and dismayed by the pics accompanying the article [click each image for enlargements], which showed her with an impossibly slim waist and no arse to speak of.
Winslet herself blasted the magazine for tinkering with her extra pounds. “It’s an outrage,” the star complained to one paper. “The re-touching is excessive. I don’t look like that and I don’t desire to look like that . . . I haven’t suddenly lost thirty pounds.”
But Winslet’s outrage may be a tad disingenuous. According to PeopleNews.com, the star actually approved the slimmed-down pics.
Ticket stubs are everywhere, one of the many receipts in our daily lives - but we all save some from time to time. The Ticketstub project is a place where you can upload scanned images of your saved stubs, and tell a story about that night, that concert, that movie, what happened on that date; basically, ask youself why you saved the stub as a reminder.I really need to submit a story for these (photos here) and these. Todd wrote up an excellent =w=eezer recap, but it's passworded now.
