Boy, is David Letterman in some trouble these days! With him coming clean about the Blackmail scheme by a former producer of his show, he got himself in hot water with former employees and the network and his wife. Methinks he's got a lotta 'splainin' to do!
John and I are on a quest to find sugar free beverages that do not contain Aspartame. Not an easy undertaking. We're also trying to find out if the report that aspartame is the cause of folks being misdiagnosed with MS and Lupus. Could explain the joint and muscle pain I get these days (can't possibly be from getting old and being fat) I'll let you know what I find out! AH!!! Snopes.com says this story is FALSE! We wondered if maybe the makers of Splenda and Truvia weren't the ones responsible for putting this story out there to scare folks away from those products.
My niece is getting married on Saturday and on that day she will become Patty Duke!
I'm still trying to wrap my brain around the fact that my youngest child, who is a freshman theatre major in college, will be portaying a dead slut in the one act play she was cast in. Last fall, she was Abigail in her school's production of The Crucible and the year before, she was cast as Amayzing Mayzie La Bird (the bird who find herself "with egg" after a vacation and leaves her egg to be cared for by Horton the Elephant so she can have fun and party) in Seussical the Musical. Do you think she's being type cast?? All these naughty roles!
Isn't it too early to turn the heat on? It's only the first week of October, but the temps at night are beginning to drop into the high 40s and my ass is cold! Fortunately, the days are still in the high 60s, low to mid 70s. Time to pull out the throw blankets and hoodies!
While I'm typing this, the TV is on in the other room. Craig Ferguson is now on and he's being very funny because David Letterman is his boss and he's supposed to talk about the top news story of the day and make fun of it. Guess what the top story is? You got it!! David Letterman! Craig is going on and on about how he's probably going to lose his job but he sure hopes he's funny if what he's saying causes him to lose his job!
So I got to work for 53 minutes today. I got to work, did my set up side work, joked to my shift leader that my OTLEs (option to leave early work) were finished and I could go. So she sent me home! I was kidding!!! Apparently the one boss has decided if you don't get a table by noon, you get sent home. It's ok. I'll return the favor when I'm shift leader later in the week.
Rio De Janiero, Brazil won the bid for the Summer Olympics 2016. Just think of the money that was wasted by our illustrious President and his wife as they flew to Denmark in 2 separate planes to try to win the bid for Chicago to get the Olympics. And Chicago came in dead last. The cost of the plane fuel alone could have been used for better things. And yes, I'm not a fan.
And what about them Phils! Winning the National League East Championship! Now we have to get past the Colorado Rockies to win the National League Pennant before moving on the World Series!. Go Phils!!!!
