Notes

My Favorite Geico Commercial: The one with the "true Geico customer story" featuring "The Pips" to help tell that story (other guests include Peter Frampton and Joan Rivers).

Yahoo is featuring a story about the top so-and-so-many billionaires with the tagline "NEW face on the list!!!". Get this, Yahoo: I don't care who it is. All I know is that I'm on a decent salary supporting only myself and I still have to think through a practical budget for the necessities.

There is a virus going around that features a scratchy throat and dizziness as symptoms. How do I know? Answer: Personal experience.

"That's Amore" is the newest dating show on MTV. The only good thing about it is that it's sheer ridiculousness has made even the biggest fan of "I Love New York", "Flavor of Love", and "Rock of Love" realize how stupid it is to get a bunch of people on a show with some kind of theme in order to compete for the affection of some at least semi-well-known individual. The truth of the matter is I have no idea where they picked up the guy for "That's Amore". Does anyone know?

I'm not a Hillary Clinton fan, but I have to hand it to her. She really turned it out last night, regardless of the resulting delegate number (which is still smaller than Obama's). The lack of uncertainty may not be a bad thing for the Democratic party, either. McCain may be the confirmed nominee of the Repulican Party at this point, but most eyes, whether conservative or liberal, seem to be glued to the Democratic race to see what happens there. Sorry, McCain. My recommendation: hair dye is a cheap way to get people to notice you.

Ho-hum, I suppose. More at another time.

I sincerely hope that virus doesn't linger--it's not a nice one.

And I must say this Democratic race is getting to be a real nail-biter. I'd like it to be done with so I can focus on what's next: the election against McCain.

i had to look it up, but it looks like the "that's amore" guy is one of the "shot at love" losers... figures.

i'm so tired of this whole election thing already. i have no idea who i want to run this country because i don't like ANY of the choices right now. hmm.

He wants to put Edwards on the ticket but Hillary's going to hand his ass to him if he doesn't invite her. Gotta give it to her.

Dating shows - painful. But I have to say that Rock of Love is about the worst I've glimpsed yet. So if "That's Amore" is worse... please, please, don't let it make it's appearance on NZ television.

If McCain had more hair, not just hair dye, he would be a shoo-in
