College Text Books -BOHICA!

What is with the price of college textbooks?

I know, I know…I picked up the pamphlet at the bookstore that broke it all down and how much goes here and here. But in this age of technology, why aren’t we moving to paperless textbooks? You download your book as a proprietary file format and use a viewer program. It could happen. You’d cut out the costs for printing and shipping and no chance of running out of a book at the bookstore.

But I must say that last semester (Summer 2007) I actually came out ahead monetarily. I track my school expenses each semesters. I add together my tuition and books, and subtract the amount I get back from tuition reimbursement from my employer (up to 7 credit hours and half the cost of books and lab fees). I actually came out ahead over $2! I think it was the buy back amount I got for my text book…it was unusually high, though I’m not complaining.

My astronomy teacher is Russian, I hope I can get through his accent. And my Server class is Prof. R. who I’ve had several other times and he’s a great teacher.

Going Down In Flames, Part V

Yes, my readers, yet another elected official has been caught in a public restroom doing something naughty. This time he was playing footsie with the policeman in the next stall. Read all about it:

Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) was arrested in June at a Minnesota airport by a plainclothes police officer investigating lewd conduct complaints in a men’s public restroom, according to an arrest report obtained by Roll Call Monday afternoon.

Craig’s arrest occurred just after noon on June 11 at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. On Aug. 8, he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct in the Hennepin County District Court. He paid more than $500 in fines and fees, and a 10-day jail sentence was stayed. He also was given one year of probation with the court that began on Aug. 8.

A spokesman for Craig described the incident as a “he said/he said misunderstanding,” and said the office would release a fuller statement later Monday afternoon.

After he was arrested, Craig, who is married, was taken to the Airport Police Operations Center to be interviewed about the lewd conduct incident, according to the police report. At one point during the interview, Craig handed the plainclothes sergeant who arrested him a business card that identified him as a U.S. Senator and said, “What do you think about that?” the report states.

Craig was detained for approximately 45 minutes, interviewed, photographed, fingerprinted and released, and police prepared a formal complaint for interference with privacy and disorderly conduct.

I found a link to his arrest report. This is when I referred to him playing footsies. He tapped his foot a few times in the stall, then edged it closer to the policeman’s foot, and final tapped it. This is how guys hook up in separate stalls when there are no glory holes (Honestly, I’ve never had this happen to me). Then when arrested the guy whips out his State Senator card and brandishes it like a Get Out Of Jail Free Card! I laughed at this until I almost wet my pants!

He has been quoted as saying his only crime was admitting he was guilty. WTF?!?!? This schmuck-Senator is a real piece of work. Maybe he can keep Bob Allen company while they wait in line for their unemployment checks?

Here’s his picture:

Scary Larry

Can you say “troll”? I knew you could!

Dear God Won’t Someone Stop Them?!?!?

You know….I really like Disney’s Escape To Witch Mountain, so much so, I used to pretend I had powers like Tony and Tia’s. But there’s still some idiot in charge at Disney Studios! Someone stop him (or her), please!

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is in talks to star in “Witch Mountain,” a modern re-imagining of Disney’s 1975 adventure movie “Escape to Witch Mountain.”

The story follows a pair of siblings, endowed with paranormal powers, who go on the run from a diabolical group of men who wish to exploit their abilities. Johnson will play a Las Vegas cab driver who is in for the ride of his life when he picks up the duo.

Disney is eyeing a March 2008 start date. Andy Fickman is on board to direct; he and Johnson worked together on Disney’s upcoming family comedy “The Game Plan.” Johnson’s recent credits include “Walking Tall” and “Gridiron Gang.”

Beary Cheesy?

I got this from another blog and had to share it. It made me laugh (and get a bit turgid)…but could they be the next Village People?

Well, we spent most of Saturday working on his sister’s yard, fixing a problem his brother-in-law created by not landscaping properly. The hubby’s back was cooked and my neck got burnt. The storms moved in in the afternoon and we worked in the rain and got everything done but laying the mulch and taking the bags of trash to the dumpster. That we did bright and early Sunday. Needless to say, the rest of Sunday was spent relaxing at home.

I finally played racquetball last night, the first time in months! I play against my step-dad, but there are only two courts and one was double-booked so for awhile we played a three-way game with this beefy hottie, unfortunately he was there with his wife. But, man! The hot meat in the adult locker room yesterday was fabulous! This is an aquatic center so there are Olympic sized pools and always people using them (swimming, diving, scuba classes)…and that means the occasional Speedo or spandex short covered hunk of flesh uses the showers in the adult locker room. Well, there were several yesterday. It was so bad I went into a stall and rubbed one out. At least I could concentrate better on my game after that. I haven’t gotten off in a stall since my late teens.

Everyone have a good weekend.

Toto, We Are Totally F***ed This Time!

I found this on

Olson & McFarlane Return To “Oz”

Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures are teaming on “Oz,” a revisionist take on the L. Frank Baum’s 15-book “Wizard of Oz” novel series reports Variety.

Scribe Josh Olson (“A History of Violence”) will write and “Spawn” creator Todd McFarlane will produce. Both are working out the tone which will aim to be a darker and more adult – something along the lines of the recent “Harry Potter” film than the famous 1939 MGM feature.

McFarlane says “I want to create (an interpretation) that has a 2007 wow factor. You’ve still got Dorothy trapped in an odd place, but she’s much closer to the Ripley from ‘Alien’ than a helpless singing girl.”

They also say the film will be more of a sequel than a remake.

I see Dorothy as a militant lesbian with a flat-top hairdo. The Tin Woodsman is actually a metallic, human-size vibrator. The Scarecrow is a voodoo doll and sticks pins in himself to attack his opponents. And the Cowardly Lion is a cat/human hybrid who wears clothes but also uses a giant litter box. And Toto becomes an iguana that Dorothy keeps wrapped around her neck.

It could happen!

Grown Men Playing With Pussies

Yes. The kitty litter is going to hit the fan. Siegfried and Roy are coming out of the closet! Read about it HERE.

[Insert sounds of crickets chirping here]

What? No one is surprised by this announcement? I’m totally shocked…But then I’m reminded of a joke I heard when I went to see Rita Rudner’s act in Las Vegas some years ago:

“I went and saw Siegfried and Roy perform the other night. They are such great magicians. For the first five minutes I actually thought they were straight.”


Work is keeping me hopping. Nothing else too exciting. I do have to say the first two episodes of Weeds have been fantastic and I can’t wait for Monday evening to roll around so we can see the next installment. What’s almost as good as there was an add for Dexter they showed after last Monday’s episode. Our favorite serial killer is back next month!

Burn, Baby, Burn Part IV

Our favorite closeted elected Florida official (Bob Allen, for those of you wondering) is in the news again! After being removed by the Speaker of the House as a Chairman of a committee he was on, this man decides to speak to the local news (Story Here).

In my last installment you remember that Mr. Allen said the reason he offered an undercover cop (unbeknown to him) $20 to give the cop head was because the agent was black, and there were other black men in the park. So he was going to give head, AND pay for it so he didn’t get beat up.

Well, here’s the sound bite Bob gave the local news concerning his accusation:

“I am not a racist, and that was simply a sensationalistic definition of someone who is trying to spin this into a bigger problem than it was,” Allen said.

Dude…that hole you are digging is getting deeper and deeper. Enjoy your career now while you have it. Soon the only thing you’ll be doing is being the laughing stock of the Florida legislature.
