gg-jodie_fosterStraight from The Onion comes this video of how Jodie Foster’s Golden Globe speech has inspired LGBT youth to come out in a very round about, vague sorta way.

I am thinking maybe Jodie wants to ask the writers at The Onion to writer her next speech. I think it would be funnier at least.

At least Jodie is getting a lot of internet play out of this and has inspired memes like this one. It will keep her in the spotlight for her return to acting. Wait she said she was retiring. Wait no she didn’t. I am so confused.


Jodie Foster Inspires Teens To Come Out Using Vague, Rambling Riddles

Jodie Foster Golden GlobesFirst off, I have to admit I did not watch the Golden Globes (I hate award shows), but was later “forced” into watching the Jodie Foster speech.

I am not sure why folks are thinking she came out in that speech. She came out a few years back in a speech. This speech was really a bunch of nonsense to be honest.

What I take away from it is Jodie trying to be funny and failing. Her main point seemed to be about privacy and for people to mind their own damn business without ever really getting straight to that point. (But maybe that was a comment about stuff too…she’s not straight so how can she come straight to the point?)

Any who, let’s just call this an epic speech fail and just say congrats for the award and next time hire writers (or better writers) for your speech.

Watch it for yourself.

Love Ruth Buzzi. Always have. Ever since watching her in the Electric Company back in the day. I have been following her twitter feed for awhile now and she comes out with some great ones like this!

If you’re on Twitter follow her for some laughs.

This week has been very (and I mean VERY) trying.

We had a frickin’ earthquake.

Granted not a big one but we don’t get those very often in Pennsylvania. I also did not like the fact that the quake’s epicenter was very close to where I was headed in Virginia for the BlogPaws conference. So while I am all concerned about the earthquake along comes hurricane Irene up the coast at us.

So I had to leave the conference to get home ahead of the bad weather. (Made me a very sad camper.)

Then when I get home I start charging everything because I know we will lose electric once the storms start.

Nailed that one. Blackout.

Thank goodness I got to see the new Doctor Who before everything went black.

It is amazing how quiet the city gets when there is a blackout.

I had to take a cold shower this morning to go to work…that was probably the worst thing about the whole experience.

If you haven’t heard it before you will most likely hear about it shortly.

Sen. Rick Santorum has a problem with Google (well not just Google but all the search engines really, but apparently he uses and blames Google the most).

When you search for his name a nasty website tops the charts. This was a prank pulled on him back in 2003 but still gets relevant SEO rankings today.

If you want to know what the prank is simply read the search engines description of the site that pops up first (no not the paid ads which I assume is how Santorum’s team is fighting back. Or better yet go the the wikipedia article  Santorum (neologism) – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

What does that mean for Rick Santorum? Not much really. He can’t remove it and the more people link to it the higher the rankings will go (reason I don’t link to it). But this will never go away — EVER.

Not that I am a fan of Santorum in any way shape or form. I just don’t wish to propagate this type of trash.

Perhaps this is a lesson for everyone. Be careful out their because you don’t want someone posting something nasty about you on the net.

I did not pay too much attention to the new star signs when the news first hit as I am not into astrology, but I do find it interesting that along with moving some of the dates they have added a whole new sign to the line up.

Several of my friends and family have changed signs. Wonder what they link of their new sign? Does it match their personality or will they stick with the old one?

The new 13th sign is Ophiuchus (how the heck do you pronounce that).

The new signs and dates are as follows:

Capricorn: Jan. 20 – Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16 – March 11
Pisces: March 11- April 18
Aries: April 18 – May 13
Taurus: May 13 – June 21
Gemini: June 21 – July 20
Cancer: July 20 – Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10 – Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16 – Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30 – Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 23 – Nov. 29
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29 – Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17 – Jan. 20

Maybe this is what’s wrong with the world today? No one knows where they stand or how they are supposed to act or which horoscope to read in the daily paper!

A little before Halloween I heard about a great promotion that SheSpeaks.com was having for Snickers. So I quickly applied to be a part of it, telling them how much I love Halloween (it is my Christmas).

I little while later I was told I had been chosen to be one of the Snickers “Coolest House on the Block” participants.

So cool! The package of goodies arrived about a week before Halloween. Boris helped me inventory everything we got (especially the candy — probably because it sounded a little like his treat bags as I was pulling them out of the box).

Next up was to decorate the house. Being city folk we don’t like to have the house decorated too early, just to cut down on the possibility of vandals. However, SheSpeaks.com needed photos posted by a certain time showing the decorations in place.

So I went about building a cemetery out front and hung the HUGE Snickers banner behind it. This was placed right where all the Trick-or-Treaters would see it as they came up our front steps.) The banner reads, “It’s No Trick. Here’s the only house where you can get this new treat.”

Glad I did not completely decorate as we had some really windy days leading up to Sunday’s Halloween night. So I added the finishing touches to the decorations Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately the mini fog machine Snickers sent did not work out as it was still too windy. All the fog blew away in seconds. But the strobe light really made the cemetery creepy.

I heard quite a few parents reading the banner aloud as I handed out the candy to their kids and even a few came over and asked for some for themselves as well.

Boris was getting rather upset about being left inside the house when all the excitement was outside.

Here’s a gallery of Trick-or-Treaters from the evening. This is only a small sampling as I gave out all of the candy and it was quite busy at times. I also had some smaller ghosts & goblins that I chose not to post because of their tender young age. But boy were some of them adorable.

At the end of the evening there were two little furry Trick-or-Treaters. They unfortunately did not get any of the Snickers, but I still was able to give them some Halloween toys  (I should have had some Greenies on hand for them).

Boris also told all of his friends about how Halloween was on Snickers this year and what he was up to on Halloween night. (Warning: Boris’ blog is written in kitteh speek.)

While Valentine’s Day has hardly come and gone Easter is hitting the shelves of the stores already. Target had PEEPS on the shelves Saturday when I stopped in to pick up a few goodies. I love Peeps. I especially love the Peep Shows that the Washington Post has every year. I just wish they would open it up to more than DC and the surrounding areas. I reall, really want to enter. Guess I could make my own…and maybe even have my own contest too….hmmmm. That’s what I am going to.

Okay, everybody get to working on your Peeps dioramas contest information will be coming soon…for now get some ideas brewing in your heads. At least in my contest you won’t have to deliver anything but a photo of your diorama to me.

Here are some of my favorite dioramas from the 2009 Peep Show III.

Boris and his pals on Twitter are at it again! They started a way fun Duckie Club and all you need to join is a Ducky with a rather interesting name.

Boris with Kong DuckieBoris Named his Kong Ducky Sir Quacky McGee. (He had to have a little Simpson’s in him since he is so yellow.)

These are great, fuzzy little refillable cat toys that kitties and their humans will like since you can refresh the catnip inside the toy any time your cat seems to lose some interest in it. Being so fuzzy gives them a great texture to lick and bite.

Stores like CatToys.com and Supplies Just 4 Pets are chipping in and donating toys to needy cats and kittens in rescues too. How cool is that?

Want to have your cat join the club too and help cats in shelters have fun at the same time? All you have to do is visit either Boris’ Blog or Manxington’s Duckie Club and buy a Kong Duckie through CatToys.com (the links on this blog work too — and you save 10% off your order). For every 25 Kong Duckies sold through those links they will donate 1 ducky to charity. While you are at CatToys.com you can do even more for the charities by adding one of their donation items to your shopping cart as well. You’ll get your items and CatToys.com will ship the donations out to shelters already waiting for toys and treats from animal loving people like us.

Check out the Offical Duckie Club Members list managed by a sweet dog Shawnee the Shepherd.

Even if you don’t join the Duckie Club you should join them on Twitter

Time Travel AheadEvery day on my way to work I pass this sign (okay not exactly this sign since I photoshopped it — the real one says Travel Time Ahead). And in my dyslexic mind I ALWAYS read it as Time Travel Ahead (so I went ahead and made it say that since that is what I see in my mind’s eye anywho).

Just some random silliness.

Below you will find two signs I happened across. Both of which are missing commas therefore making the meaning of the sign slightly different than intended. Not quite as much fun as the Blog of Unnecessary Quotes, but almost. I am not quite sure what an alcohol dog is and I have never heard of a drying vacuum either…
