Where does the good go

With 21 hour days to work with…

Wednesday, December 20th, 2006 by Dawn Summers

I get to see a lot of movies.
Last night I saw “The Departed.”
This is the best movie I have seen in ten years.
And I say this despite the fact that two men to my left were snoring and the stupid bitch to my right kept trying to talk me. “Can you even believe that people are sleeping through this?”
Insert glare.
Not that she could see it. But still.
OH.MY.GOD.
I don’t care who you are or what you’re doing! Go, go right now!
“Nobody gives you anything, you have to TAKE it!”
Alec Baldwin is hysterical! And Jack Nicholson is at his most deliciously evil since his performance as the joker.
I didn’t barf even once at the sight of Matt Damon.
Good, good stuff!! Wow.

Not So Random Thought

Ever since I started sleeping three hours a day, I have developed lightning quick senses. I can literally see the world on a microscopic level. In particular, I can see through skin. But not clothes. It’s weird.
And.
I have figured out the meaning of life.
I would tell you, but it would blow your minds.
Whoa…imagine that…mind bits, everywhere.
Cool.
I am also fairly certain that I have finished building the world’s first working time machine.
But shh…more on that later.

Kim Mathers and Marshall divorce again

Wednesday, December 20th, 2006 by Dawn Summers

Eminem and Kim Mathers agreed to divide property under terms of a private settlement and to share custody of their 10-year-old daughter, Hailie Jade Scott. They told a judge they understood the divorce was final.

The couple “conducted themselves with dignity and respect,” Circuit Judge Antonio P. Viviano said. “All in all, they are a very fine couple to deal with.”

Now that she’s fallen into that kind of money, I’m guessing America has just met the future Mrs. Kevin Federline.

China imposes new adoption restrictions

Wednesday, December 20th, 2006 by Dawn Summers

Under the new rules, only people who have been married for at least two years will be eligible to adopt, according to Harrah’s, the New Beginnings Family and Children’s Services Inc. of Mineola, New York, and Families Thru International Adoption Inc. of Evansville, Indiana.

Beijing previously allowed adoptions by unmarried foreigners.

The agencies said Chinese officials told them about the rules at a December 8 meeting in Beijing. They take effect May 1.

Among other restrictions, couples must have a body mass index — a measure of obesity — of no more than 40 and be age 30-50, with people up to age 55 considered for children with special needs, according to the agencies.

The rules bar parents who take medication for psychiatric conditions including depression and anxiety or have a “severe facial deformity.”

Guess I’m going to have to get one of those free Malawi kids they’re always giving away.

A technical question

Tuesday, December 19th, 2006 by Dawn Summers

If I am watching a recorded streaming video and there is like two minutes of it that I would like to copy and post on a blogger blog, how would I do that?

Freaking me out!

Tuesday, December 19th, 2006 by Dawn Summers

So, a fairly prominent Philly blogger died suddenly a couple of weeks ago.

This was her last post:

My PC fan is slowly dying. I’m hoping it will wait till after the holidays to give up the ghost. With all of Scrooges fellas flying about, we’re up to our ears in ghosts already. (Also, if this post ends abruptly, you’ll know why. Just in case, I’ll be trying to back some thing up over night tonight. In either case, forgive my brevity.)

DUUUUDE. I scared.

UPDATE #1:
And except for the not watching TV and liking travel and animals, she was totally like me!

So…what are the symptoms of a pulmonary embolism, again? That’s what killed Kelli Martin (aka Drobbski’s ex-girlfriend) on ER, right?

UPDATE #2:
She had a leg tumor! My toes kinda hurt…

UPDATE #3:
I’m fairly sure my mother would not know how to put a post up here if I died.

UPDATE #4: Yes, I am now thinking about my death nonstop.

UPDATE #5: I know what you’re thinking, but the dentist said I wasn’t crazy.

UPDATE #6: True diehard fans will note that updates 3-6 were posted at the same time.

Here at Clareified we only have one question

How much is Clay? More specifically, how much for Clay to sing for me every single day?

Not for nothing…

Tuesday, December 19th, 2006 by Dawn Summers

but with a name like “Brownback,” I really wouldn’t be the one to start up an anti-gay rights crusade.

Sen. Sam Brownback, who wants to champion social conservatives in the presidential race, said Tuesday he wants a Senate panel to re-question a judicial nominee who attended a same-sex union ceremony.

Brownback, a Kansas Republican, said he wants Michigan state judge Janet Neff to testify about her role in the 2002 Massachusetts ceremony, her legal views on same-sex unions and her ability to be impartial if called upon to rule on such cases.

Just. Sayin.’

So, if your last name is Brown, Jim Croce has seen to it that you cannot name your son Leroy…right?
