Whale Rider/Whale Biter

A killer whale bit her trainer and dragged him underwater twice during a show at Sea World, San Diego. Luckily the trainer was able to swim away after the second "dip."

Animals seem to like biting people. I wonder if humans are delicious.

Here's the story...

Christmas Songs

For the most part, I love Christmas music. When KOST starts playing it (yes, even before Thanksgiving!!), anything that I own that can transmit a radio frequency is tuned to that station. KOST. KOST 103.5. (Free advertising - lucky for them.)

HOWEVER...there are "Christmas Songs" that I HATE. And so the list begins...

1. Christmas Shoes

Three letters: WTF
Two words: Socially Irresponsible!
One explanation: OK, anyone who knew me when the song came out will contend that "YOU were the one who told me I needed to listen to this song because it's so sweet!" SO, I take it back. I was wrong. So very wrong. Who in the world allows their child to wander around any shopping area unattended, talking to strangers and asking them for money...ALL while his mother is at home dying.

2. Christmas Time Is Here

Have you listened to the words? No wonder Surface doesn't record anymore!

3. Anything Natalie Cole (Christmas and non-Christmas)

Using her father to make money for herself...tsk, tsk, tsk...

4. Why Couldn't It Be Christmas Everyday?

By the winner of America's Got Talent, Bianca Ryan. Well, for starters, if we had to listen to this song for Christmas everyday, I would probably lose my hearing from all of the screaming that goes on in this song. It makes me want to ask for earplugs for Christmas. The people who call this use of her voice "singing" are sadly mistaken and should go in for a hearing test.

Also, little girl, if it was Christmas every day, some people would be broke and wouldn't be able to buy your album. Do you want that to happen?!

5. Anything Gloria Estefan

Just don't like her voice...

6. Anything Kimberly Locke

Can't tell if it's a male or female voice...

More will be added soon. KOST plays these things 24 hours a day for 5 weeks. I'm bound to come across some gems!

Let me outta here!!

Panbanisha the Bonobo (simple speak: monkey)!!!! She lives in the Great Ape Trust of Iowa (see story below) and she is AWESOME! The staff was too busy to let her out today, so she got mad and pulled the alarm again! Then she sat around with a big smile on her face!! But don't worry - she promised not to do it again. They're covering the alarms - just to be safe...

Question of the Day...

Is a burrito a sandwich? The Panera Bread Company actually brought this question to court so a judge could settle it. He says "no."

Isn't it wonderful that companies are bringing these types of questions through our legal system when there are easier ways to find your answers??? Like actually looking at a sandwich and a burrito and seeing if they looked the same. Or they could've tried asking the question of each other...or of their customers...or even me! I would've said, "uh...kinda...but NO."

This time.....DEEP-FRIED! With all the deep-frying going around, oil producers must be making a butt-load of money! Unless, of course, the people doing the deep-frying are too stingy to replace the oil when it needs to be replaced! Check the picture out!

BTW, I love Jeno's!

Leggo my Legos!!!!!!

The company that produces Lego building blocks has announced that they're having a hard time keeping up with demand for their spectacular building blocks. This most likely will result in a shortage of Legos this holiday season. I guess I can't give everyone Legos for their eight Hanukkah presents, huh? DANGIT. Maybe I'll just give Christmas presents this year so I only have to give one!!!

Children these days...poor monkeys. They won't know the joy of building something on Christmas morning, then destroying it and leaving the blocks all over the floor to hurt the adults that accidentally walk all over them!

Once Upon A Time...

November is National Novel Writing Month. Apparently, this is supposed to motivate people to get writing! I'm searching for the perfect opening line for my novel. Oh, and I'm also searchin for a subject. Any suggestions?

One more thing...I'm looking for a contest to enter. If I'm not going to win any money for my novel, how else am I supposed to motivate myself to write?
