First things first, donate if you can…Japan or whatever.


I know Mondays can be tough, so do me a favor…everytime you need a pick me up watch this:


You want to have fun filling out an NCAA Tournament Bracket this year? Try sportspickle’s ‘fail challenge.’


Looking at Nic Cage’s Rotten Tomatoes page, it’s amazing this guy still gets cast in movies.


CollgeHumor takes on Sheen. Charlie Sheen…with kids.

SHE SAID: Case of the Mondays?

March 7, 2011

I know I shouldn’t complain, because the weather in Florida was awesome and we went to the Honda Classic and a Red Sox spring training game … but I’ve been at JFK for hours, stranded because of weather in Vermont (2 feet of new snow) and I’m kind of wishing I had either stayed in Florida or stayed in Florida.  I found myself asking … myself, what would a stranded traveling Cyndi Lauper do?

And here is the answer:


Charlie Sheen is on fire of late.  Did you know that he published a book of poetry in the eighties?  Here is the link to some selections.


I had a conversation at dinner about how messed up Florida is, crime-wise, and that it’s one of the most dangerous places to be, as a child.  Oddly enough, I came across this link this morning.

SHE SAID: TV Reunions

March 3, 2010

Okay, so I’m taking this post in a different direction.  Mainly because I “misunderheard” the question.  I’m going to write on shows I think should still be on the air.  And for what it’s worth, I don’t want a reunion show.  They always make me sad for the people involved and feeling old.

1. Arrested Development.  No, I’m not starting off like Jeremy in the 80’s … mainly because I am able to look past the 80’s.  I don’t live in the 80’s or the early 90’s, nor do I ski in attire from that era.  Arrested Development was the best show ever.  Let me rephrase that. Arrested Development was the best.  show.  ever.  Smart, funny, little clues for the die hards who watched regularly, and a cast that makes me wistful just to think about … I miss this show dearly.  When it was threatening to end, I sent out a petition for friends to sign.  The same day I received one from my brother about saving the planet.  Obviously, he has nobler goals.  I just want my favorite TV show back.  But not for one hokey show that will leave me wishing I had never seen anything beyond the last episode.  I want Arrested Development back on the air on a regular basis.  With all the original cast and writers.  Pronto.

2. Freaks and Geeks.  A reunion show would be silly since most of these actors refuse to work without at least three or four of the cast members of this show.  Still…I’d love to see what happens to Lindsay Weir and her band of merry men.

3. The Wonder Years.  I mean, aren’t they all?  Why stop in the teenage years?  I could use some pointers now…

I’m running into a problem.  We weren’t really allowed to watch television when I was younger.  I’m tapped out and I’ve already googled “80’s tv shows” and “90’s tv shows” and those I can remember have either done reunion shows, we know what they are up to, or a main character has died.

I’m going to freestyle now.

4. The 1986 Red Sox.  I want to see what would happen if you got these guys together in a room for a few hours with a camera.  Wait, I want a main room and a “confessional” – Real World style.

5.  Two and a Half Men.  Could this show go off the air already?  I would be excited for a reunion show because it would mean it was over, Charlie Sheen might have stopped hitting women, doing hard drugs and being a general idiot, and that poor boy would no longer have to act like a kid or have to interact with Charlie Sheen any longer.
