Calling All Prayers

News. CootieBoyaccidentally scratched my eye this evening and I had to go get it looked at. It’s killing me and I can’t get to sleep. I’ve turned to Jaynee to take care of me. She’s usually not into that, but she has been very supportive of me through this pain.

I know some people can handle different levels of pain but this is really killing me and I can use everyone’s prayers to get through this. Pray that God heals my eye quickly and let’s me get some sleep to help heal my eye.

This will probably sound stupid to most people but I think this accident has made me want to be a better husband to Jaynee, a better father of course, and the … continue on, dear reader!

In Memory of Katherine Hepburn

I loved Katherine Hepburn. She stars in a few of my favorite movies (specifically, “The Philadelphia Story”, “Stage Door” and “Bringing Up Baby”). Whenever I see calla lilies I immediately quote a few of her lines from “Stage Door” (“The calla lilies are in bloom again – such a strange flower, suitable to any occasion.” It continues with: “I carried them on my wedding day, and now I place them here in memory of something that has died.”) She was simply gorgeous on screen.

I read her autobiography “Me” soon after it was published in 1991 and fell in love with her even more. She was a fiercely independent and vital woman – such a treasure and a real role model. Fortunately for us … continue on, dear reader!

Something Fun

I found this poll over at My Messy Mind and thought it was cute and fun. My comments in italics

I am:
Very strong strong like in my personality? Sure. Strong as in can lift 250 lbs over my head? Not quite.
a bit self-willed Who, me? of course i am
independent very
does not allow contradiction or arguments *snort* so true. I had when people go against me
loves life definitely
its family all the way
children and animals most definitely. I’m a sucker for a cute kid (especially mine) or sick animals in need of care
a bit of a butterfly in that I flit about from place to place? Yes.
good sense of humor I agree. I do have an outstanding sense continue on, dear reader!

Guess What I’m Listening To Right Now?

I’m listening to Clay Aiken’s CD single right now. That’s right. I bought it. I did not, however, buy Rooo-ben Studdard’s CD single because the song they forced him to sing is crap. I may buy his full-length album though, since he’s a fabulous singer.

But for now, I’m content to listen to Clay “I hate to tell you fanatics out there but I am gay” Aiken’s CD single. Simon was wrong when he said “This is the Night” is a bad song – it’s really not. It’s a great song and wears extremely well on Clay. Way better that flying with wings song they forced on Rooo-ben.

Dr. Phil Rocks

It’s official. I love Dr. Phil. He has superseded my love of court tv shows. Now I’m all about Dr. Phil. You know why I like him? He doesn’t take crap from anyone. He has no problem telling a guest that they are insane, rude, inappropriate, ridiculous, immature, or any other thing I scream at his guests.

Two cases in point:

1. Yesterday he did a show on youth obesity, and he had on Wendy, a woman who made no bones about the fact that she is not close to her 125-lb eight year old daughter, Melani, because she thinks her daugher is a pig. She actually said that. She also said she feels closer to her eight year old niece who … continue on, dear reader!

BlogShares

Apparently Cootiehog is listed at BlogShares, but the funny thing is that *I* didn’t submit the site, and the site is listed incorrectly as CootiePIE, despite the link going to THIS site.

But it’s actually listed TWICE – once correctly, once incorrectly. I wonder how I can fix that.

Also amazing, as Cootiepie we’re going for $230 as of this writing.
As Cootiehog we’re only going for $218 as of this writing.

Amityville Horror Pt 2

Anyone who was here last year for Amityville Horror Pt. 1 should know that the sequel is out this summer.

Yes, our flies are back. Except this time they are convening in the attic where our computer is. They’ve decided the living room bay window was too dangerous due to massive casualties last year and have moved to higher ground. Right now as I type I count no less than twenty.

Yes, I said twenty.

Disgusting, isn’t it? I’ve decided that the only method that will work is to bug-bomb the house. It’s quite possible this weekend that we’ll be begging Ace to take us in for a night, board the pets in the kennel at our vet’s and lock up the house tight so … continue on, dear reader!
