Randomness Defined

Got a few thoughts that I wanted to express but none of them were worth a full blog entry on their own, so here you go:

  • First of all, I have two new candidates for my list of favorite female celebrities (as stated in my earlier post) – I need to find a replacement until Lindsay Lohan stops being so goddamn skinny, gets some curves back and goes back to being a redhead.  The first is Miranda Lambert, yet another drop dead gorgeous country singer that I happened to notice while flipping past CMT this morning.  Every once in a while, it’s worth stopping on that station and hitting "mute."   The second is Natasha Bedingfield, a fairly indistinguishable pop singer that was on MTV or VH1 or whatever.  You know who else is looking hotter and hotter?  Joss Stone. She’s turning into a fine looking young woman.  However, my favorite hot female singer videos out right now are still the latest Mariah Carey (whatever the song is… I don’t really care.  She looks great, especially at the beginning when she’s lying on her back) and the new Kelly Clarkson video "Behind these Hazel Eyes" – I’m likin’ that corset thing that she’s wearing big time.  She’s so damn cute she’s hot.
  • Speaking of videos and songs…  am I the only one who thinks that the new R. Kelly song and video  "Trapped in the Closet Part 1 of 5" is absolutely atrocious!?!?  It has to be one of the most boring songs and videos ever created.  God help us if there are actually another 4 parts to come of that crap.
  • I had the hiccups this morning.  yeah, I know, how much more exciting can this blog post get, eh?  Hope no one reading this has a heart condition….  anyway, isn’t it amazing how many cures there are for hiccups?  I did a quick Google search for it, and man, there are a LOT of pages out there dedicated to it.  Came across some that I had never heard of before.  I just held my breath for a while and they eventually went away, thank god.  I hate getting the hiccups – I get them really hard and they sometimes hurt.  They are the epitome of annoying and proof that if there is a higher power, he/she/it/them has a sick sense of humor.  If anyone has their own person favorite hiccup remedies, let me know…
  • Back to sexy videos… I would like to be the first to congratulate an entire generation of boys on reaching puberty thanks to the new Jessica Simpson video for "The Boots Are Made for Walking" from the Dukes of Hazard movie.  If  they put that on the DVD, it may become the best selling movie of all time…
  • What the hell was Trot Nixon thinking/doing last night when he got picked off of second base?!?!?
  • Anyone out there get the new Ryan Adams & the Cardnials disc?  I’m looking forward to picking it up and was wondering if it as good as it seems from what I’ve heard so far.
  • I just bought my first Terry Pratchett novels and looking forward to starting them.  I gotta finish "The Eyre Affair" by Jasper Fforde first, which is very good so far.
  • Also tried fried cheese curds for the first time yesterday.  I spent some quality time with my mom, since we were both heading in the same direction and we hadn’t gone and done something just the two of us in a long time – brought back fond memories of running errands with her as a kid – and we went out to lunch.  We figured we’d go completely retro and we went to the A&W drive-in (yeah, they still do car service) in Smithfield.  I had been there before, but don’t remember it was so long ago.  We had some cheeseburgers and I had to try the cheese curds.  They were pretty good – taste like mozzarella sticks, but made with a mild cheddar.
  • Lastly, I’m totally crazy about the latest Weezer song "Beverly Hills" – I first heard it a few months ago during my trip to LA, and now it’s getting all sorts of play on XM radio
  • OK, I lied… one more… if you’re still debating whether to get XM radio, do it… you can now get a receiver for $49.00!
