Anorexics on Entertainment Tonight Part Two

In my May 23 column, I noted that Entertainment Tonight has stories on anorexics every night. Well, I watched ET tonight for the first time in a long time, and...yep, you guessed it...there was a story about an anorexic on there!! Thankfully, the story was about a good-looking actress on The Sopranos who had gone through anorexia in the past, so we didn't actually have to see her looking all grossed-out and stuff. But in another segment, Delta Burke talked about some eating disorder she's had before, or something. Ooookay...

Gay Night for the Grizzlies

Last night was Gay night for the Grizzlies at the FedExForum! The first 3,000 fans in attendence to the game were give a free Rudy Gay jersey. I had to make sure me and Barbra got there early enough to get our Gay jerseys, and we did, as you can see in the picture! But the line of the night had to be from a dude in the row below us talking to another dude in that row: "Did you not get here early enough to get your Gay shirt, man?"

Democrats sweep the elections...thank the Lord

The Democrats have won the majority in the House of Representatives, will probably win the majority in the Senate, and in my home state of Arkansas, Democrat Mike Beebe destroyed Republican Asa Hutchinson in the polls to win the governor's seat. Nancy Pelosi will probably become Speaker of the House, and in so doing, become the first female to ever do so. (Bet you'll never see a female Republican politician with that job...waitaminit, are there any female Republican politicians?) And then today, President Dubya, seeing that his power was about to go bye-bye, fired the pariah Donald Rumsfeld. The only way things could be better is if President Dubya himself were gone. I know for a fact that in the past two presidential elections Republican voters have been so stressed out, because they thought that they just had to vote for someone who is such a damn IDIOT to be the president, just because he was a Republican. I mean, entire books have been written on how he can't even talk right! And he's the president! I even gave one of those books to my Dad one year for Christmas. But oh well, the bottom line is, God has truly blessed our country this week, and we should all be thankful for that.

UPDATE 11/9/2006: Yesterday Democrat Jim Webb was declared the winner of the Virginia senatorial election by the Associated Press, which means that Democrats have indeed taken over the Senate as well. God is good.

UPDATE 11/12/06: I wasn't for sure until I saw just now, but the elections have also given Democrats a majority in state governorships across the nation: 28 for Democrats, 22 for Republicans. Praise the Lord.

My birthday on Deal or No Deal

On Thursday's episode of Deal or No Deal, the contestant took the deal when there were two cases left to open. Those final two cases were my birthday numbers, 12 and 23! As in December 23rd!
