Good Tunes, New Holes & A Personal Post Script...

Well, here we are getting more and more close to Turkey Day, and if I don't have enough stress in my life I seem to create more on my own. Sigh.

Wednesday, my husband and I went to see Taj Mahal. He's a great blues artist that my husband especially likes. Seats were great, the show was wonderful and the theater that it was in is a historical one that we always enjoy going to. The McDonald Theater. Wonderful night.
Until we got home about 11:30, anyway. Brand new hole in the ceiling, but this time in the foyer right above both the front door and the door into the kitchen. About two feet by 3 feet. Oh, yeah. Fun for all ages.
So that leads me to the "adding more stress part". Currently I work about 24 hours at the local "mom & pop" market a few blocks from my house. But this morning I am going to interview for a seasonal job working as a customer service rep for Harry & David. You might of heard of them. They sell catalog stuff from their Medford, Oregon orchards and shop. Nationally. Anyway, I just want to get out of this house that much faster, so I am willing to work two jobs to get it. Wish me luck.
Oh yeah, and a special message for anyone reading this who has been, might be, or could be invited to Thanksgiving at my house: Everyone, and anyone who shows up is always welcome, invited or not actually. And we mean it. Whether or not you choose to feel welcome is your problem, not mine. Where ever anyone chooses to spend their Thanksgiving, I wish them a happy one.

What a Dickweed!

Can you believe this turd? Check out the money he's going to make now:

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - More than a decade after he was acquitted of murdering his ex-wife and her friend, O.J. Simpson will describe in a televised interview how he would have committed the crime if he were the one responsible, the Fox network said.

The taped interview was conducted by publisher Judith Regan, who is putting out a book Simpson wrote in which he "hypothetically describes how the murders would have been committed," Fox said in a statement on Tuesday.

The interview will be the basis for a two-part Fox special, tentatively titled "O.J. Simpson: If I Did It, Here's How It Happened," airing on November 27 and November 29, Fox said. The book, "If I Did It," goes on sale on November 30.

A California jury in 1995 found the former football star not guilty of murder in the June 1994 stabbing deaths of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, concluding a sensational trial that riveted the world's attention.

A civil court jury in February of 1997 found Simpson liable for the deaths and ordered him to pay $33.5 million in damages to the families of the victims.

Lawyers for Goldman's parents have said they would attempt to garnish any of Simpson's future earnings to satisfy the judgment, which he has vowed never to pay.

Simpson has always insisted that he was wrongly accused of the killings.

According to Fox, Simpson agreed to an unrestricted interview with Regan, in which he "describes how he would have committed the murders if he were the one responsible for the crimes."

In a brief promotional clip from the interview posted on Fox's Web site, Simpson, says, "I don't think any two people could be murdered without everybody being covered in blood."

He is also seen setting aside a copy of a book he is reading from -- presumably his own -- and saying, "I can't do no more of this."

Regan Books is an imprint of book publisher HarperCollins, which, like Fox, is a unit of News Corp. Ltd.

I'm Still Just a Girl...

Ok, I know that I said the details were coming but everytime I think about the incident last night, it freaks me out. So I will put it in a nutshell.

After scooping up with a shovel the baby nutria that my dog Mazzy deposited on my back step, I soon dicovered it wasn't quite dead and started to MOVE while on the shovel. It was almost dead, but wiggled enough so that it fell of the shovel onto the ground. I attempted to re-scoop the damn thing, but my case of heebie-jeebies was so strong that I went to bed instead, right after I called my husband at work to inform him of what he needed to remove when he got home.

The end. Yuck


OK, note to self and any others who may encounter same:

Be aware of the consequences when removing the dead "thing" from your back step with a shovel. Details to follow.
