This is getting ridiculous!!!

How many celebrity deaths are we expected to deal with in one month!?!? Billy Mays, Walter Cronkite, the chick from Charlie's Angels and that pop singer have all met their maker in what has seemed to be the blink of an eye. Just when I thought I couldn't take any more, I look on Yahoo News and learn of maybe the most alarming celebrity death of all.

Gidget, the Taco Bell chihuahua, has gone to a better place. It seems that Gidget suffered a stroke today while watching TV with her trainer. She died at the ripe old age of 15 (yep, that's 105, folks). I can't stop thinking about that one commercial where Gidget, who pulled of being a male chihuahua flawlessly, was trying to catch Godzilla in that homemade trap made out of a little box. "Here lizard lizard lizard." Epic.

So, goodbye Gidget. Thanks for the memories. Your commercials were amazing, and you were pretty good in Legally Blonde 2, as well. You will be missed.

Oh yeah, and God, if you're reading this, yo quiero a break from the pain.

Hoveround Mania!!

So, the other day, I'm about to jump in the shower when I get a text from my boy Michael that reads "come outside in two minutes." I thought about telling him I was getting in the shower, but I had a feeling something awesome was going on. I get dressed and go outside just as Michael and a buddy of ours, Rick, were pulling up. They were all fired up and said that they needed my opinion on something. Rick said, "this is serious." They quickly explained that a couple of "hillbillies" around the corner were trying to sell two Hoverounds (you know, the little scooters for the elderly and fat people at Wal-Mart) for $300. They wanted to know if I thought it would be a good investment. Michael thought not only would it be sweet to ride them around to bars downtown, but he could also probably sell them for more on Craig's List. I really didn't have much of an opinion, but I did tell them that it would be sweet to take them to the Grand Canyon like the old ladies in the commercial. Rick asked me directly, "can you tell us one reason why we shouldn't buy the things?" I told him that I could not. They thanked me for my help and drove off. So, did they buy them.............

Of course they did!! I got a call later telling me that they were downtown on the scooters and headed to a bar. Nice work gentlemen. When do we leave for Arizona?

Inglouroius Basterds

Has anyone seen the trailer for the new Quentin Taranteno movie starring Brad Pitt? I'm pretty excited about it. I can't imagine how gory this thing is going to be.

There is another trailer that I like even more, but YouTube wont let me embed it. Check out the link.
