I know; I'm pathetic.
Lots of work, and I've just completely lost it on the blogs. It's hard to get back into the groove.
Now that I decided to write something, what should it be?
McCain vs Obama? Obama scares me a lot, and McCain scares me somewhat less than Obama. I think McCain is going to win in a squeaker, but then it will be the 2000 election all over again with the law suits to have the judiciary decide the election. (Gore had a 10 point lead at this point in 2000 and then lost, Obama's only a few points ahead, which I think will disappear on election day.) I don't feel like writing about that, it's too depressing.
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? Nah. I hate rap music and I refuse to talk about rap "stars."
Britney Spears? She's looking better these days, and even was quoted as saying she didn't know where here head was last year when she went through her bald phase, and attacked people with umbrellas. So I'll leave her alone too.
I already poked Lindsay Lohan in the eye with a sharp stick a few weeks ago, so not that.
But this week, some really big news happened.
Remember Leonardo DiCaprio? He used to be an actor? Was in that Titanic movie?
After the success of Titanic, it was believed that Mr. DiCaprio could do no wrong.
But this weekend, he had a new movie open at theatres, and his movie was beaten by a movie about a Chihuahua called "Beverly Hills Chihuahua."
Now, new movies always have their best week on opening weekend, and although Mr. DiCaprio's "Body of Lies" was in a distant third place on it's opening, and theoretically, best, weekend, "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" was number one at the box office for a second weekend.
Man. That's GOTTA hurt. Beaten by a pretend talking chihuahua.
