When I Close My Pop Eye...Will You Dream (Dream) About Meeee?

Ok, folks...I'm off to New York so I'm not sure when I'll get to blog next. Let me just throw a few things at you in a last ditch attempt to entertain.

Item #1 - Britney Spears may soon be appearing on Broadway as the title character in "Sweet Charity". Looks like I'm moving to the Big Apple just in time! I'm really happy about this. Obviously, Broadway's standard of talent is at an all-time low now which means that I am one step closer to the dream of playing either Eponine in "Les Miserables" or Sandy in "Grease". Hey, it could happen.

Item #2 - Pat Morita just died. Bummer. Mr Miyagi was a cool cat. You kind of get the feeling that a guy who can catch a fly with chopsticks will live forever, but it was not to be. RIP, Pat.

Item #3 - Jessica and Nick are calling it quits. For real this time. It's rather anti-climactic isn't it? After all, this story has been making its rounds in the tabloids since the two got married. Oh well, all reality TV shows get canceled at some point and most Hollywood marriages end. The odds weren't in their favor. They will both still continue to make crappy music, just separately.

Item #4 - Two women were injured during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade when a balloon got tangled up on a street lamp, knocking part of it off. Oh great! As if it's not bad enough that I have to worry about random muggings, subway stench, crazy cabbies and running into Britney's no-talent ass...just one more thing to make me nervous about my move. Giant, runaway balloons. I hope my new health insurance covers that.

That's about it for now! Don't worry, I won't be gone for long. And Tom Cruise will still be a jackass by the time I return to the land of Blog.

Have a safe trip - you weren't kidding when you said you were moving SOON...

Miyagi's death truly was sad. He really wasn't that old, either. I'm old enough to remember him on Happy Days.

Good luck with the move! It sounds so exciting - living in the Big Apple! I can't wait for all the stories you pick up there!

I'll be here waiting for your return.

Have fun in the Big Apple and don't worry, I think Brittany will go over just like her restaurant did.

I must be old, instead of Mr. Miyagi I said 'oh no, Arnold died'

Teri said...

I was all bummed out about Pat Morita, too.

And luckily, all you have to do to avoid renegade balloons is avoid the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

beckeye, you need to see the bit the daily show did on the macy's float incident from 11/28. it was a hilarious rip on the candy coated crap known as the today show commentary team. it is pure poetry.

Yay for NYC - I live in NY but I've only been there once.

Have fun, be safe, watch your purse. I realize this is really late. I've been out of the blog circle for a bit.

Cheers!

No one ever mentions his Pat's role on MASH. He fuckin rocked.

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
