Time To Ditch The Donuts?

Michael Vale, the Dunkin Donuts dude, died on Christmas Eve. He's not a movie start or anything, but I would like to say that he had some impact on my life (the bit around the middle, more accurately).
Give it up for the donut guy.

Charity Begins In The "Used" Bin

The RIAA 'splains where all your CD buying dollars go. It seems that 'hooks & blow' are considered miscellaneous.
No wonder these folks are suing little old ladies over their vast collection of Stain'd MP3s.

Get a laugh here then cast your mind back and leave a comment about what the last CD was you bought, and what you hope they did the money. I know that for some of you, it was a long time ago.

The last CD I bought was for an Xmas gift, so it's a secret.

Cheese Friday: Cheese snacks for the Holidays!

Mr. Food's Crispy Cheese Poppers

1-1/2 dozen

• 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
• 1 fresh jalapeño pepper, stem and seeds removed, chopped
• ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
• 18 wonton wrappers (from a 16-ounce package), thawed if frozen
• 1-½ cups vegetable oil

1. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, chopped jalapeño, and Parmesan cheese; mix well.
2. Place a wonton wrapper on a flat work surface. Dip your fingers in a small bowl of water and moisten the edges of the wrapper. Place about 1 tablespoon of the cheese mixture in the center of the wrapper and fold diagonally to form a triangle. Seal the edges firmly with your fingers. Continue with the remaining cheese mixture and wonton wrappers.
3. In a large deep skillet, heat the vegetable oil until hot but not smoking. Fry the wontons in batches for 30 seconds per side, or until crisp and golden. Remove with a slotted spoon to drain on a paper towel-lined platter. Serve immediately.

Adventures At Work

This is a true story:
I made a DVD of a project for my bosses to review. Usually they come into the edit bay and have me hit the space-bar and sit there while they look at something that they've never seen before (even though they've already told the client how great it is). But I digress...
So the DVD, I made it in iDVD and it has a basic start up screen (brushed aluminum)and a little button that shows you a clip of the video.
So my boss, K____ has had the DVD for about 30 minutes, no word. Then she staggers into the edit bay with her Dell laptop.

"Dude, dude, major problemo" she begins,"this window thing is too small to make out the text."

"Uh, K____ it's a button"
"A what?"
"Click it"


She clicks the button and the video begins playing full frame.

"It's okay" she calls back to me as she staggers out of the room, "I fixed it!"


So I loaded up Craigslist and started browsing the jobs.

A Timely Guide To 'King Kong' For the Fidgety

This weekend I saw the film King Kong My two-word-review:

" SPECTACALOUS ASS-KICKERY ".

This film is way better than the Lord Of The Rings Tri-ology, however it could be a tad shorter (a big tad shorter) and this article on the Washington Post's website agrees.

If you have not seen the movie their handy guide will make the three hours and seven minutes just fly by...

Cheese Friday: More with Cheese and drugs!


Flawed drug test mistakes cheese for cocaine
Thursday Dec 15
The Scotsman
RHIANNON EDWARD


AN INTERNATIONALLY recognised test for cocaine is flawed - and can throw up positive results from powdered milk and parmesan cheese, say scientists. Laboratory research shows that the "Scott test" can fail to detect the drug in some samples and can wrongly identify it in some substances where no cocaine is present.

The test, introduced in 1973, is used by many police forces as a preliminary check on substances they suspect to be cocaine. A positive result is not enough to secure a conviction, but can lead to suspects being detained until a forensic laboratory completes a detailed analysis using mass spectrometry.

"I swear officer, it's not cocaine. I'm making Chicken tetrazzini."

Cheese Friday: Jessica Booth, evil idiot.


Woman Allegedly Hires Hit Man for Cheese

The Associated Press
Tuesday, December 6, 2005; 7:01 PM


MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- In an unusual case of mistaken identity, a woman who thought a block of white cheese was cocaine is charged with trying to hire a hit man to steal the "cocaine" and kill four men. The woman also was mistaken about the hit man. He turned out to be an undercover police officer.

Jessica Sandy Booth, 18, was arrested over the weekend and remains in jail with bond set at $1 million on four charges of attempted murder and four counts of soliciting a murder.

According to police, Booth was in the Memphis home of the four intended victims last week when she mistook a block of queso fresco cheese for cocaine _ inspiring the idea to hire someone to break into the home, take the drugs, and kill the men.

An informant described the plot to police, who arranged a meeting between Booth and the undercover officer.

The undercover officer gave Booth some nonfunctioning handguns, bought ammunition for her because she was too young, and the two proceeded to the home under police surveillance.

Booth told the officer that any children inside the house old enough to testify would have to be killed, police said.

A search of the home with the permission of the occupants revealed no drugs _ only the white, crumbly cheese common in Mexican cuisine.

"Four men were going to lose their lives over some cheese," said Lt. Jeff Clark.

Scott Baio bangs his 1,000th model and wins a fuckin' Toyota Camry!


HOLLYWOOD CA: Last night everyones fav T.V. babysitter Scott Baio bangs his 1,000th model and wins a Toyota Camry. Baio was stumbling home when out of nowhere the prize patrol confronts him with a hefty pat on the back and some shiny new car keys. When asked if he was surprised by all of this Mr. Baio stated "Of course I am surprised I thought I fucked a thousand models years ago and as a matter of fact if your handing out Camry's for every 1,000 models I give the Chachi log to then I figure you owe me 2 more Camry's." He then insulted the prize patrol camera man by saying "Hopefully they give out prizes for fuckin' fat chicks then you might be in for a Moped." Adding insult to injury the camera man was none other than Baio's estranged son Barney Baio. Barney pointed out to producers that indeed Mr. Baio was his father but he had not seen him in years. Mr. Baio replied "Oh hey you are my son huh? Sorry kid it's been a while I haven't seen your mom since I gave her the business end of my weiner." A fight erupted but ended almost as soon as it began when Barney Baio took a swing at his pop and cut his hand open on Scott's feathered hair sending him and Scott's hair to Westwood memorial hospital where Mr. Baio's hair was in serious but stable conditioner.

In a bold move, the BBC has decided to counter “the Most Watched Network” on television with their own highly anticipated fashion show. Execs for the British network have been quoted as saying “It’s been 130 years in the making, and the old gal has never looked better!”

CBS Press release


CBS announces the December 6th broadcast of the 2005 Victoria's Secret Fashion show will be the first in its new Pixelvision 360™ format.

"The Colombia Broadcasting System is committed to developing cutting edge technology in order to provide the viewing public with the highest quality family programming possible for free!" raves new CBS Vice President of Standards and Practices Abner Q. Fussybottom. "Not even the largest of nipples can evade our new process, thus ensuring families will be safe for any and all sorts wardrobe malfunctions or other lascivious acts so common on other networks!" declared Mr. Fussybottom to nods of approval among several high-ranking members of the FCC in attendance. Mr Fussybottom, now sweating profusely, continued, "In these difficult times it is imperative that we do our utmost to combat the moral decay that threatens the very fabric of our society, lest those who would destroy us may use our towering technological achievements against us!" As Mr. Fussybottom finished, he thrust his fist in the air. Red, white, and blue balloons fell from the rafters to the tune of Bruce Springsteen's Born In The USA* blasted forth from the public address system. When order was restored Mr. Fussybottom added that the first fifteen seasons of Murder, She Wrote will be available for download on Apple's iTunes service in January. Mr Fussybottom then left the podium and discretely placed a call to his broker to sell all of his outstanding Viacom shares immediately.

*The version used in the George H. W. Bush presidential campaign with the second verse editied out. Something about "Killing the yellow man" or Viet Nam or something. Not a big Springsteen fan, sorry.

Mom Allegedly Spikes Mac & Cheese With Bleach


AP-10:04 am CST November 29, 2005

CORAOPOLIS, Pa. -- A mother has been charged with trying to poison her adult daughter and her daughter's family by pouring bleach into their macaroni and cheese dinner.

Moon Township, Pa., Police say 56-year-old Nancy O'Donnell is charged with four counts of both aggravated assault and recklessly endangering another person after Saturday night's incident.

Police said O'Donnell poured the bleach on a meal Saturday night that her daughter, Victoria Lynn O'Donnell, was preparing for her live-in boyfriend, Jamal Scott, and their 6-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter.

Court records said Victoria Lynn O'Donnell confronted her mother who allegedly said she wanted to sicken her daughter, telling her that she didn't deserve her children.

Nancy O'Donnell is being held on $25,000 bond.
