KISS YOUR EXPECTATIONS GOODBYE. Dad is Gene Simmons – the legendary, tongue wagging demon of KISS. Mom is Shannon Tweed -- former Playmate of the Year, actress and model. And their kids, Nick and Sophie, are, well...surprisingly charming, well-behaved teenagers dealing with the trials and tribulations of adolescence, even though Mom and Dad are truly like no one else’s parents. A&E Network presents the original series GENE SIMMONS FAMILY JEWELS Mondays at 10 PM/9 PM C.

The new template looks great in Firefox on my PC and I hope it looks OK on your computer & browser. Please leave a comment either way, so I'll know.
Blogger finally supports labels! This is the one feature that has made me think about upgrading to a different blogging platform for a long time. This means I can tag a post with TREO (for example) and you can use the keyword feature to show only TREO labeled posts. This will take a while to implement fully, as I have to go back and tag 659 previous posts...

This is a test of the Windows Live Writer, a blog post editor from Microsoft. It works (obviously) with Blogger, as well as Windows Live Spaces (and others). If this posts to the blog correctly, then I'm gonna give it at least a thumbs up.

He's certainly not the only idiot involved in this fiasco (fiasco/fresco - interesting...). The following items he reported he later recanted.
- Passenger had a screwdriver
- Passenger had matches
- Passenger had a note that referenced al-Qaeda
- Passenger had "vaseline on her"
Enough bashing of Adam. Let's look closely at the rest of the story. The woman in question was 60 years old, unarmed and tied up. The plane was diverted to Boston and was intercepted by two F15 fighter jets.

Within just over 5 hours, I spent 3 hours in the truck and went no more than 25 miles. I could have driven to Houston or Dallas in the same amount of time.
Possible punch lines:
- Thanks so much for spelling it out, I never would have thought of putting the "S" first.
- You lost me at "U". Could repeat that more slowly ?
- So, you're not an Indian tribe ?

- You will receive an unexpected gift from an aquaintence
- If given a penny for every kind act, you'd be a millionaire
The second is really an affirmation, rather than a fortune. The first one is a fortune and did come true on Thursday night. When I went to see tee Jabarvy, I was one of the first 100 people and they gave me a cool discgear CD case with the band's logo.

What I don't understand is why anybody cares. These are people (in this case, men) who get paid to look pretty and pretend to be someone else. Why would I get my information on post partum depression from the star of Top Gun? Why would I expect the star of Mad Max to not have human flaws like the rest of us? I have (on more than one occassion) had too much to drink and had to apologize to someone I offended.
Thank goodness that each of us doesn't have to live their life so publicly. Who hasn't said things they wish they hadn't? Who hasn't said things that could be taken out of context? Who hasn't told a joke they wish they hadn't?
The unreasonable people here are not the actors (and other celebrities), but a society that hangs on their every word.

Beggar: Hey, can you give me a couple of bucks? I'm out of gas and I'm trying to get back home to Pasadena with my wife and kid.
Me: Here's two bucks. That's all I can spare.
Beggar: Come on. Can't you do better than that ?
Me: I can take those two bucks away from you if you don't need 'em.

The title will be The Dark Knight. Oddly, they've chosen Heath Ledger as The Joker. The movie will begin production next year.
