??Let’s all go to Tesco’s …!?? I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist.

There are literally a million tall, pretty girls with singing talent and dimples on both sides of their faces (and with rich parents, too!), and if she’s not on the trash heap of pop history in the next year or so, then she’s very lucky indeed, seeing how Nick churns them out. Is no one on her team telling her this? Back in the day, there was a charm school for 60s Motown stars to learn not only how to comport themselves in public, but also to learn how to be grateful for their success. Maybe that needs to come back for these Nick kids.
1. Cole slaw
2. Mac and cheese with tuna
My given name is a famous name. Even so, no one can seem to spell it properly, and I get called several different (but similar-sounding) names all the time. :/
Oh, the ending to this IS EVERYTHING!
I don’t eat Oreos, so I will not be trying any of these flavors. Not a fan of Chips Ahoy, either. Just not a fan of bikkies at all, really. Sorry, America! I’m sure someone will contact me to rescind my citizenship and kick me out of the country shortly. But before I’m tossed out head over arse, is it just me, or does the guy who’s partnered up with Andrew in this video look like a young Peter Capaldi?
Aw, what a good-looking kid. His dad, William Russell (Enoch) was on the oldWho back in the day, and played Ian Chesterton, one of the 1st Doctor’s companions.
I don’t even know. It’s really, really unfortunate that even with the support of other adults, Charity is fixated on having the happy childhood that was unfairly denied her. How could one help her move on from that? How does she learn that one of the best things about being an adult is learning how to take care of oneself? It seems to me she’s hanging on to this way of thinking at this point because that’s the behavior she’s familiar and comfortable with, even if she can see that it’s actually harming her now. Oh, man, it’s just so sad.
How about the whole “Bernard, Bernard, Bernard… Look, I’m a robot prostitute from the future”?
My understanding is that there’s a fellow out there (who may not be British for much longer) known on certain TV show sets by the sobriquet “David Ten-inch”? I think that needs investigating, post haste! Allons-y!
I thought “basic” was slang for someone who thinks they’re the special sauce, but they aren’t. How did this get to being about people who follow mainstream consumer trends in food and clothing?
Wow, this all seems terrific. I’m looking forward to sharing these feelings with an S.O.!
The pillow must be cold. MUST. Almost time to break out the comforters in the Northeast! w00t!
Oh, I’m going to have to go to Berlin.
Apple pie. Damn right.
::blinks:: Did I leave the gas on?
Doug is 21?!!???! That’s a hard 21, then! At first glance, I thought he was 40!
What kind of people create/join an outfit like IRIS, anyway? And this time these people came in from western countries to begin with and started slaughtering “apostates”. So this has nothing to do with religion. Before, it was “home grown”, but it’s not this time. And every time, the decision to bomb these groups to kingdom come happens without thinking through that there are so many disaffected people who are lured into a organization like this to give their lives meaning, or to express their rage, to boost their own egos, and give their lives and disaffection “meaning”. With mindsets like that, wholesale slaughter isn’t going to work; you’re basically dealing with a hydra head, you know? If their name isn’t “ISIS”, it’ll be something else. We have to figure out another way.
Pamela wasn’t even old! 59 is still middle-aged. Aw, man! :( RIP.
If I would be arrested for whupping an adult with a switch at all, which I would, because I’d be charged with assault, then what makes this OK to do to someone smaller and more defenseless than an adult? We have here a grown man switching a 4 year old child. That’s awful, and there is no excuse. There are so many things our parents used to do that need to stop, regardless of what a lot of people may think. Just because they were done in the past doesn’t mean it was OK then or ever, much less now; it’s not about being politically correct, it’s about progressing in a civilized manner so that our societies aren’t all about looking for an excuse to be violent towards others. If we’re still going to say it’s OK to whup your kids, then we may as well bring back drawing and quartering, or hanging. It comes from the same mentality. Children are not their parents’ property to treat as they wish.
Well, as Graeme Garden once said on an ancient episode of The Goodies, “If you fancy it, eat it!” :D
They should have the ERB guys, EpicLloyd and NicePeter, on the show. I’d watch that. They’re originally improv guys anyway, so it’d be a perfect fit. Lorne, dude, join us in the 21st century.
Bob Balaban is awesome, Reptilian or not. Just sayin’.
When people die this young from a heart attack, it’s usually from an undetected congenital heart defect, surely? Those future kids would potentially have ticking time bomb tickers, then. If I were the head of that clinic, I’d not allow one drop of his donations to be used until a full autopsy was performed. That’d be just exposing the clinic to a lawsuit down the road, otherwise, if not worse.
I was on 6th Ave near my office, about 3 miles north, when the North Tower fell. There was a clear view of it in flames, and of the billowing smoke. A few people had already made their way uptown after the South Tower had gone, and seeing the thousand-yard stare in their eyes was a shock. In my office, we had been reacting in confusion and more as if it were “a horrible thing that was happening on TV”, but then I went outside. There was no mistaking the communal energy of fear and dread. When the North Tower collapsed on itself, where I was you could have heard a pin drop. Everyone froze where they stood. Then, after the rumbling ceased, there was a low moan that started through the crowd that rapidly became wailing and shrieking. The faint hope that at least some of those trapped in North Tower might be saved was gone. I will never forget it. .
If I’m not hit by a bus before I’m, like, 96, and my computer doctor says I’m about to kick the bucket? I’m eating all these carbs. All of them.
#8. David Gandy. I want to bite his lower lip. Among other things. MMMMPFH!
You could sell several thousand trainloads of #12 in the States, surely!
The last time I did the Halloween Parade in NYC, I was part of a group dressed as Tetris pieces. We got screamed at by the crowds on the sides for miles, and they acted as if they were losing their minds. We were the only group dressed that way, but still. Another year, I went as a planet, as were 8 other friends (before Pluto got kicked out of the lineup, of course), and one of their dads was the Sun. Every so often we would all stop in the street, then spin while rotating around him. That was fun.
I am very glad that this is being taken seriously, and I hope these women get justice.
Oh, man. That pilot’s a goner, for sure. :(
I have complicated feelings about her. I wasn’t keen on her style of humor (my sense runs a lot drier), and I was not down with how she didn’t want the writers on her E! show to join the writers’ union, among other things. I recognize, however, that she busted her arse to get to where she got in comedy, she went through a lot, and I can respect that aspect of her legacy. I believe her jokes got a lot more mean-spirited after her husband died. I think the pain of his suicide (and maybe Johnny Carson’s betrayal, also) seeped into a lot of facets of her life. Well, all that’s over now.
So of course, all I can think of is: “You don’t know what you’re doin’ when you try to bust a rhyme against a mind like Putin…” Damn you, ERB! :D
Had no idea Marks and Sparks sold food. Well done, them.
My very, very, very first crush on a “grown-up” guy was a ginger. I was 6. He was 20, maybe. All us little girls at VBC/day camp would push each other out the way at story time, so one of us could sit on his lap, or when we went on field trips, so one of us could sit by him on the bus. I wonder now what he thought of us! Is that last guy also Kenneth Bek? Because me likey.
I booked bands for the student union as my extracurricular thing, and I’m sure there was a group like that at every mid-to large size university.
Wow, it really is a little dynamo of a cart, isn’t it? Thanks for the ideas.
