Random Stuff...

I am gonna be all over the place today.

I read that Anne Rice, author of some 25+ novels dealing in the macabre, has found god. Her next novel will be called Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt that will be narrated by a seven year old Jesus. She is not worried she will alienate fan as she says Christ is the "ultimate supernatural hero".

Wal Mart heiress Elizabeth Page Laurie gave back her diploma at USC. There were allegations she paid her roommate $20,000 to do term papers and other homework. That is the Walmart mentality at work. Yet another reason I hate Walmart. 11 Months and counting since I have stepped foot in one.

There are more starbucks in London than New York City.

Since most of the world's remaining gold is microscopic, mining companies now must excavate 90 tons of earth to extract enough gold to make a 3oz. ring.

The Patriots won last night with a return of Tedy Bruschi who had a stroke 8 months ago. Fans celebrated by accepting the fact that in the last 3 years Patriots tickets have increased in price 90%.

Gillete will roll out a razor that has not 3, not 4, but FIVE blades. Great..a $25.00 disposable razor that will cut me w/four blades I really don't need.

Now for some more "focus":

Weekend was odd. Saturday was very cold and it snowed. Some areas got over 1 inch. Sunday it was about 65 out. Today its going to be 70. Good for the kids and the tricks and treats but that means more kids and MORE candy I'll need to buy!

Watched the Motorcycle Diaries this weekend. It was actually a pretty good watch. Its hard to rate stuff on Netflix because 3 is "liked it" and when you see three out of 5 you start to think "ehh maybe its not that good". The overall ratings on it are higher. I am not sure I "really liked it" which is 4 stars. I wish I could give 1/2 stars. As far as neflix goes I'll go w/a three. I'd suggest it quickly to others though. Its got subtitles though so be aware if you think that automatically makes a movie "not as good".

I guess thats it..let me file this and I am sure something else will pop to mind.

I've boycotted Wal-Mart too. It's been more than a year since I've been in one. I also hate Netflix's rating system, but I ignore what they say the stars mean and use 3 as average, 4 as like, and 5 as love. I guess that screws up the recommendations, but I don't care since both my boyfriend and I are rating, and we like totally different things, so my ratings are wonky anyway.
