I Feel So Sorry For This Lady...

If you hadn't already noticed, I'm an eBay shopper. If I can't find it on eBay, I don't get it. As I was looking about tonight, I went to check somebody's feedback, and came upon the most HILARIOUS eBay dispute I think I've ever read.
I read them aloud to my mother, and she was nearly in tears!
I've linked the beginning of the 'problem', and you'll have to work your way back... it just gets nastier and nastier!
Like I said, I feel sorry for this seller... it only takes one nutjob to spoil your good reputation, although, anybody with eyes can tell she got a loony.

In other news, who knew there was a Russian adaptation of Perfect Strangers?

And, since this post makes no sense, I'll add this, just to give you a treat.

Dan, What Are You DOING?!

For those of you who don't know, I've been a Harry Potter fan since I was nine years old. The reason I read the series was because I saw Daniel Radcliffe on Rosie O'Donnell before Sorcerer's Stone came out at the pictures... I'm only human after all, and his precious face drew me in faster than you could say "isn't he ADORABLE?!"

(And wasn't he ADORABLE?!)
My life changed forever after that day.
Fast forward... I just saw this video from Gypsy of the Year '08, to which I say, Dan, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? I'm shocked. Not appalled, just shocked. I never thought I'd see our precious little DanRad parading about a stage with... well, watch the video.

I still love Dan, but I have to wonder what's going through that lad's thinktank sometimes.
I change my mind, NOW I'm appalled.

The Liverpool Losers... I Mean, Legends.

I'm a sucker for Beatles tribute bands. Really, it's pathetic. And then, once the band starts to play, I'll either loose myself (if they're good), or cringe and think "I've heard the REAL PAUL sing that song! Oh my GOD."
Well, last night was the first (and last) time I've seen The Liverpool Legends... I honestly could have lived without it. I was having fun making jokes about the travesty playing out in front of me... and then, fake John brought in the Yoko jabs.
I'm very protective of Yoko. You have to be a very special kind of person to deal with John, and she did it with GRACE. She was EVERYTHING to him, for him, and with him, not including the fact that EVERYTHING she's done in her life has been POSITIVE.
Yoko is the kind of person that we can learn from (in more than one way), someone to emulate, NOT poke fun of. Heather Mills, different story. I once saw a t-shirt that said "The Gold Digging Whore Should Be Beaten To Death With Her Own Fake Leg", to which I say "Rock on" (NOBODY messes with Paulie!).
Overall, it was a decent evening, with lots of giggles and quality sister time (which I enjoyed immensely, for the record).
I don't feel like giving these dweebs more publicity, so instead of watching a clip of their show, give this video a peep.

THEY did better than the fellas we saw last night!
Rock on, elderly, rock on!

The Gym For Your Face... WHAT?

Graham Linehan is one of Britain's best comedic writers (with such greatness as Father Ted and The IT Crowd under his belt), so it's no wonder his blog is a favorite of mine.
As I was snooping about the Internet last night, I checked his blog, and found this crazy gem... unless you're bored, I wouldn't suggest watching the ENTIRE thing (you'll get the point if you fast forward the dull bits), but if you like slightly off the wall weirdness that doesn't pertain to anything in particular, this is a must!
Just know you have been warned!

What I find MOST disturbing about this, is that one just like was used in that... whatever that was... is selling on eBay, and currently has 6 bids!
Consider this your "Quirks of the Human Race" studies for today.
And, if you're still interested in what Mr. Linehan has to say, you can visit Small Mammal House for EVEN MORE oddities!

It's So Hard (Cement, I Mean)...

Daddy had to make a little business detour (it was just thirty miles away, so it wasn't actually a business trip) today, so our little family hopped in the van, and headed to Dalhart!
Our destination was the county courthouse, which is where my funny story comes in.

You'll notice there's a little area on the left hand side of the building, close to the ground... that's an entrance to the courthouse. I was helping tote random bags of junk in, down the steep stairs. Now, as anyone who is near-sighted will know, it's not easy to look down while wearing your Rx glasses (can you see where this is going?)... well, taking that into account, I thought I was on the last stair down, but there wasn't anything under my expectant toes, so I fell... hard... on the knee I cracked seven years ago (in the Atlantic Ocean, Coco Beach, Florida... and the NEXT DAY, I walked Disneyworld without any painkillers to boot).
For those of you feigning concern, it's well and proper swollen, and a bit sore, but I'll survive. ;-)
Anyway, we saw the Court Room, the Grand Jury meeting room, and some other various offices, and afterward, we headed across the street to the XIT Ranch Museum.

If you're ever in the area, it's a fun little stop (it took us about an hour, but we examine everything with a fine tooth comb, so it would probably only take a half hour for normal people), especially since it's FREE!
We had a lot of fun, and we were only gone a few hours!
Now, while I'm tending to my various injuries, enjoy the song that inspired this blog's title, It's So Hard, written and preformed by John Lennon.

Butt Hurt : Not Just For Breakfast!

I have lead a sheltered life. The one brief period of my existence that I was hip, NSYNC and The Backstreet Boys were still feuding for top spot on the walls of insane tweens. Therefore, I keep the Urban Dictionary handy, since I was weened on Reality TV, and I sometimes need the help with modern vernacular.
Last night, after our Sister's Class (Basic Fundamentals of Photography), my sister used a phrase I hadn't heard before, but, according to her, it was popular when she was in high school; Butt Hurt.
Out of pure curiosity, I decided to go to my awesometastic Urban Dictionary and look up this odd addition to my sister's everyday vocabulary.
Butt Hurt
Well... alrighty then.

For My Sister : British Funnymen...

My sister and I do not share the same sense of humor. I should know.
I love British comedy. I'm spoiled to it. So much so, I can't stand American humor (or, humour, depending on where you're from).
My sister doesn't know who these foreign comedians are when I speak of them (those weirdos, you know, with the funny hair and that), so I promised her a slide show... name and face time.
I don't know if she expected it so soon, but she has it now.
YAY!
Just for you, luv!

This is One of the Greatest Things I've Ever Seen....

I have been a Paul McCartney fan for as long as I can remember... it was only as I got older that I realized how MUCH he has out there to be a fan of... and then, of course, in for a penny, in for a pound. (I was sucked in, and I've never been let out! He's got me trapped... yet somehow, I haven't tried escaping.)
ANYWAY.
I found this video on YouTube the other night, and I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT. (That isn't hard, Paul is so fall-in-lovable.)
So I present to you... Paul McCartney telling a joke.
It doesn't sound like much, but if you're a fan, you'll laugh your left buttock off. Maybe your right, too, depending on how big a fan you are.



This came from a promo website for his latest album, "Memory Almost Full" (if you don't have it, what in the name of all that is good an cheesy are you WAITING for?! And if you do, ISN'T IT FABULOUS?!?)... on it, you could type questions for Paul to answer! If you want to give it a go, here's the link.

CALLING CHILDREN OF THE 90's...

I was looking on Project Playlist just now, and I found the most disturbing thing...
Give THIS a listen, see if it sounds familiar.







Get a playlist!
Standalone player
Get Ringtones!



FORTUNATELY... Sugar Ray and Smash Mouth were among the lucky untouched in this travesty... here's the link on Amazon...
Who else here has just lost some respect for Paul Anka?

And now, for those of you who feel slightly nostalgic... consult your Magic 8 Ball, and have a peep at this.

Now, don't you feel all warm and fuzzy?

It's Time For Another......

"What in bloody blazes are these people thinking?!"
Today, I bring you another eBay listing.
This time, they want to you play "Name That Turtle!"

The sad part, is that A) this thing has TWO bids from the same person! He upped his bid just so he wouldn't miss out! And B) it's got a reserve. I mean, what moron is stupid enough to put a reserve on an auction this dumb? They had to pay listing fees for this mindless drivel! And then, they got some idiot that would actually buy it, but now they won't even get a little bit of the useless expense back, all because of a silly reserve. (???)
Let's all shake our heads in unison, and we'll ponder why certain people are polluting proper air (for those who could use it) by just breathing in and out.

I Need A Fangirl Moment...

I have had a soft spot in my heart for Chris Harrison (best known as the host of The Bachelor) since the late 90's, when his biggest gig was Designer's Challenge on HGTV. (He's moved up since then, hasn't he?)
I've watched all but 1 season of The Bachelor (the one with the fisherman, more recently on TMZ for getting beat up by his fiancee from the show... oh, the irony) JUST because Chris Harrison is the host, although, over the years, I've come to enjoy it just like the rest of the reality-TV-watching nation. (I've always loved Designer's Challenge, so it's really just a bonus he hosted that, too.)
I check my email this morning to find that my dear mother has sent me something, titled in all caps "CHRIS HARRISON", followed by 50 exclamation points (yes, I had the time to count them, does that make me pathetic? If not, this blog post does).
I am very happy to report he's started a blog! YAY! The more Chris Harrison, the better!
Really, I'm just making this post so that I can find the link easily, since it will inevitably get lost in my bookmarks, but if anybody else cares to read it, it's right here!
