I’m going to have gray hair v. soon

All I can say after this l-o-n-g weekend is thank god for BabyTv and Baby Einstein (also known as baby crack).  I think it is the only thing that managed to keep me from ripping out my soon to be graying hair folicles.  Tomorrow Gabby goes back to daycare for the week.  Hooray.  She's driving me nuts.  As long as she watches Baby Einstein or Baby TV she manages to behave, the second I want to watch anything else trouble commences.  Here are some new pictures of her from the b-day party we went to last week.  Don't let the angelic face fool you, she's only cute when she's asleep.

Steve Irwin

I was checking Fark this morning as I always do when I wake up and read the headline that Steve Irwin (CRIKEY!) the Croc Hunter died.  Apparently he was doing some kind of work which involved a Stingray.  He pissed off the Stingray and it stung him with its dagger thing in the chest and that was enough to kill him.   I am sorry that he died, but at the same time can't help but to think "its about time".  When you go around tormenting wild animals that are known for their bad temperments, what do you expect?!  It seemed as if all he did was go around pissing off various wild animals and now he's finally met his match.  You can only screw with Darwin so much before he comes back to bite you in the ass.  I just feel sorry for his wife and that baby he dangled near a croc last year.  They are going to suffer the most because of this.

 RIP Croc Man.

Addicted

By M Davies   /     Sep 04, 2006  /     The Pre-Dooce File, TV Rants  /     0 Comment

I have an addiction to the A&E TV channel.  Its about the only channel on TV that I can watch from the time I get up in the morning until the time I go to bed at night.  I like pretty much every show on there except "Inked" and "Sell this House".  I will even watch a show if I've seen it one million times before.  This, of course, drives Rich batshit.  My philosphy on this theory is:  I'd rather watch something I know that I like then channel surfing.  The worst part of my addiction is probably "Dog the Bounty Hunter".  I cannot rationalize why I like this show so much.  At first every time this show came on I'd scramble for the remote to change the channel.  Then the one time I mistakingly left it on and watched an episode.  That was all it took.  I was hooked after that.  Its such a stupid and white trashy show, but I love it.  I can't stop watching.  Someone help me!  The only thing I can think of is that maybe A&E maybe plays some kind of subliminal messages on their channel that only have an effect on me.  I am hooked and can't stop watching!!!  Sidenote:  I am really mad they cancelled Roller Girls, Family Plots and Airline.  I'm also ticked that they changed the cast of "Flip this House"!!!  (See, I know all of the gossip and dirt on the shows – SAD)  If you know what I'm talking about then you too share my addiction. There is no hope for me.  Maybe I can get on "Intervention" and get some treatment.
