Back in the Day

Back in the day I used to work for a friend of mine. He owned a debt consolidation company in Linthicum, Maryland. The thing about it is that I lost my job at the Department of Defense and I owned a house, had a lot of bills, and needed a job quick. He gave me a a job working in the Administrative Department making about double what all of the other girls made. It was supposed to be a secret that I was friends with the owner because he didn't want the rest of his staff to get jealous.

In addition to me being practically a sister to the owner, I had dated the Director of Operations and I partied with all of the Managers on a regular basis. I knew every hot shot in the company before I ever started. So, of course word got out around the office. To make matters even more complicated, I went to high school with the owner's wife and she didn't know that he was cheating on her although she started to suspect that something was up.

I was privvy to all of the information. It was pure craziness. I knew that the company was doing illegal things and screwing customers out of a lot of money. I also knew that the owner was cheating on his wife. I had to hide this information from the wife (my best friend) because I enjoyed the lifestyle too much to tell the truth.

I started out trying to do a good job, but as the partying progressed and the profits kept pouring in, all of my ethics flew out the window. I’d stay out all night partying with the owner and then continue partying in the President’s office during the day. I had a get out of work free pass for whenever I wanted and I can just imagine what the rest of the company was thinking.

Eventually the owner of the company hooked up with my roommate, left his wife, was being investigated by the Federal Government and overdosed and died. I was in rehab when all this happened. My best friend will never talk to me again and I learned a hard lesson in life.

The reason I bring this up is because where I’m working now is a small company. The owner of the company gave his cousin a job working at the front receptionist desk. She stays out late until all hours of the night and comes staggering into work looking haggard. Everyone talks about her, she doesn’t get any work done, and the office manager is keeping a file on her.

Things in that part of the office are crazy and everyday I see this happening and brings me back to those days when I was doing the same thing. I thought I was so cool, but in reality I was just so clueless.

I’m glad I have the opportunity to start fresh and re-write my future.

Check out this cool ass rainbow. This picture was taken from my kitchen window this morning when I was leaving for work...

Do's and Dont's from the Red Carpet

Of course you guys had to know that I'd be doing an Oscar Wrap-Up for your viewing pleasure - welcome to Monday morning...

Okay - let's dig right in with my list of Do's and Don'ts!

First off we have Jada Pinkett Smith - looking good. I think that a lot of times she looks harsh, but I'm really enjoying this look. She's so toned and I like the soft hair and at her age she is really working it... She's a DO!






What's going on with Kirsten Dunst here? There is WAY too much going on with this dress. I don't like the feathers on the bottom at all. I also don't like that she's wearing a sheer dress with a collar. Who wears a collar with a fancy dress to the Academy Awards? She's too pale for that color and the hair is so BORING. She's a definite DON'T!




Oh Jessica Biel. UGH! Why does it have to come to this? She looked so HOT at the Golden Globes - but not so much tonight. I do like the color, but not on this dress. I hate the hair - it's pouffy. And why the black belt?? I hate to have to do this to you - but your a big fat DON'T!!





Let me first say this - Gwyneth Paltrow looks good. I love the hair and I love the makeup. She looks better than I've seen her in a long time. I hate the dress though. I don't like the color and I hate the top. I don't like the sleeves or the cut (of the top). The bottom isn't so bad because it does show off her figure. I just wish she would have chosen another dress... DON'T!




Jennifer Hudson - um NOT! I am not a fan of this dress. Why wear a dress with pockets to the Oscars? It's too casual!! And, what's with the vest? Is there a disco at the end of the red carpet that I'm not privvy to? This look is not working - she's a DON'T!!




Hot ass Beyonce! She looks great. I love this dress. I know that a lot of people may disagree with me - but I think she looks stunning. I like her hair down. I love the color of this dress. It looks great against her skin, I like the embellishment on the strap and I love the slit. I think she's a definite DO!!




The next one is tough. When I first saw this dress on the red carpet I was thinking it was a definite Don't. But, after watching the show for another hour and seeing her shimmy back and forth for the photographers, I started to cave. What I like about this dress is the embroidery on the top. I love the top and I love how slim it makes her look. I'm still undecided about the bottom. I will say that if you are going to wear a dress like this, then the Oscars is the appropriate place to wear it. Penelope Cruz looks really pretty so I'll give it a DO!





You guys know I like a good ass - well, here's my vote for best ass at the Oscars. Go Cameron Diaz. Being single is working for this chic. I think she looks great. She has a nice tan (her and Drew just got back from Hawaii) - her hair color is very complimentary to her skin tone and the white dress is just perfect. She looks fantastic - definite DO!



Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts....

Well, okay, here's the thing - no girl should EVER stand next to Nicole Kidman because they will never measure up. Look at the height on this girl and look at the body and the curves. She doesn't ever look bad. I don't think it's possible. I like it that she is wearing red, but I'm not crazy about that big bow thing next to her head. I didn't like it when Charlize Theron did it and I don't like it now. That being said - I do like the rest of the dress and I love the color - she's a DO!

I can't comment on much about Naomi Watts because I'm too busy looking at Nicole. ha ha Naomi played it safe. She looks okay, nothing special but nothing terrible. UPDATE - John was nice enough to let me know that Naomi Watts is pregnant (how did I miss that?) In that case - she looks FANTASTIC!!!!!! Thanks John!




Why does Marc Anthony have to ruin every picture that Jennifer is in? He is so NOT cute. I don't like her hair like this, but at least she keeps me on my toes. She's always changing things up and I like that. The dress is pretty. She's a DO!




And last but certainly not least - my pick for BEST dressed goes too...















REESE WITHERSPOON!


God this girl can do NO WRONG in my book. I love love love her. She is so pretty. Her hair looks fantastic. I love the color of this dress, I adore the waves at the bottom, I am amazed at how beautiful her curves look. She's the best - she's either very good at picking clothes that look great on her or she has the best stylist in the world. She's a DO DO DO!

I hope Heather gets voted off first!!

Yeah, I'm working right now - so?

Wow today is flying by. It's 12:30 already. I haven't even gone to lunch yet. I'm heading over to the outlets during lunch. I probably won't buy anything, I just want to take a stroll. I think it's something like 70 degrees outside today. Good reason for me to go out for lunch.

Remember I was talking about how much chaos there was in town over the weekend?? Well, I'm not the only one...


"If I do come back, it will not be for the All-Star Game," said Anita Lamar, 47, of New York City, in town for the NBA's midseason exhibition game.

She said that upon arriving in Las Vegas, she waited hours for a cab to take her from McCarran International Airport to her hotel. Then she got caught in a traffic jam en route to the Thomas & Mack Center and never made it to the All-Star Game. And on Monday, her departing flight was delayed nearly four hours because of mechanical difficulties.

Bruce Showers, a slot machine floor supervisor who has spent 12 years at the New Frontier and almost 30 years in the casino industry, called the fans "the rudest bunch of people I've ever experienced."


There were a few instances of physical violence at the New Frontier and at least one instance of a customer showing a gun to a cocktail waitress, he said.


From Thursday through Monday, 403 arrests were made of people attending NBA All-Star events or in town for NBA-related activities, Gillespie said. Of those arrested, 172 were residents, and 231 were from outside Southern Nevada.

A majority of the arrests, 239, were for prostitution-related crimes. During an average week, the department makes about 175 vice-related arrests. Gillespie said vice arrests increased because the number of squads dealing with such crimes was doubled.

The most violent incidents left five people recovering from gunshot wounds, including a bouncer in critical condition Tuesday after being shot early Monday outside a strip club. None of the other gunshot victims suffered life-threatening injuries.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I know there was a lot of money to be made over the weekend, but personally I'm glad I wasn't working anywhere near these people. They were rude, ghetto, loud, obnoxious and CHEAP. I could tell that from what I witnessed Saturday at the MGM Grand.

I don't know if all the trouble we had here is worth the extra money that was brought in. I guess it's not my decision anyway, so whatever.

Good news everyone - my page rank says 5 again today. hehe I'm sure you all were very concerned about it :)

Tuesday, February 20, 2007

Rank

I guess this isn't supposed to matter. But, can anyone tell me how my google page rank went from a 5 down to a 3 in one day? Seems a little odd. I went to bed last night and I was a 5. I went to work today and I was a 4. I got home from work today and I am now a 3. By tomorrow I'll probably be a big ZERO!!

Anyway, whatever. They must be playing with it or something.

Menopause??

I had a pretty productive weekend. Of course it flew buy as usual.

I had dinner Friday night at the Olive Garden with a group of 6 girls. We got there by 6 p.m. and there was something like an hour wait. Why in the hell is everyone at the Olive Garden so early on a Friday night? The only reason I was there so early was because we had a function to attend and it was starting at 8 p.m. Anyway, we were standing around waiting for our little pager to vibrate (alerting us of a table) when I saw Daniel Negreanu walk out of the bathroom. One of the girls I was with knew who he was because her boyfriend plays poker. She also knew that he was married to an asian chic. So, we walked through the restaurant and found his table and damn if he wasn't sitting there probably TRYING to have a nice meal. I'm sure I interrupted it when I came charging around the corner looking for him. I'm like a star struck little girl whenever I see someone famous, I just ran away like a moron instead of saying hi because I really kind of felt like an idiot. He was all the way in the back in a corner and it was obvious that I was stalking him :)


Anyway, I got the car on Saturday. It's a honda civic. I will post pictures later. I got up early and picked up the car and went straight to the DMV to register it. I had a line pass so I was in and out in about 10 minutes flat. I'm good like that!

I found some great deals at the Galleria Mall in Henderson. I had coupons and it was sale time. Good stuff. I love that mall. It's affordable and that's a good thing. God knows I can't afford anything at the Forum Shops and I can't afford much at the Fashion Show Mall.

I made the mistake of heading over to the MGM Grand later on Satuday (around 3:30 p.m.) I'm not sure if there would have been any GOOD time to go to the strip this weekend, but 3:30 in the afternoon was definitely a BAD time. I was so irritated when I finally go to the MGM. I found a parking spot without too much delay, but I had a really hard time working my way through the garage, passed the monrail and Fat Tuesdays, up the stairs, through the lobby, passed the slots, blackjack tables, lion cages and finally made it to the poker room. Oh my god. It was a madhouse. UGH! I should have went to the Red Rock for sure. I didn't even make much money. I was up $100 at one point, but I ended up walking away only $20 ahead after playing for about 5 hours.

The thing I noticed was that yeah, there were a lot of drunk tourists for sure, but they weren't playing poker. I didn't even have to wait for a table. They were just hanging out getting in the way and creating lines at the bathroom. The dealers told me that there was a stabbing at the MGM Friday night and a shooting over at Caesar's on Friday too. I'm pretty sure there was a lot of violence over the weekend, but I didn't have a chance to watch the news so whatever. I definitely learned my lesson. I'm not ever going to the strip during a big event ever again.

Sunday I was grocery shopping and the weirdest thing happened. I got this HOT HOT FLASH that was so strong, I got dizzy. I was standing in the frozen food aisle, and that wasn't even helping. I got this intense hunger pang too. It felt like I hadn't eaten in days - it came on all of a sudden. I paid for my groceries and ran out to the car and started tearing open the first thing I could find to eat. It ended up being a bag of gummy strawberries. I ate the whole damn bag. I ran home and ate a big bowl of soup and I couldn't even wait three minutes for the soup to cook. I had to eat a handful (or two) of potato chips to tide me over. I definitely didn't like that feeling. My clothes were soaked too. Is this what it feels like to be in menopause? I know that my mom and my aunts are always talking about hot flashes and how miserable they are. Are they usually accompanied with the intense hunger pains too? If so, I'm not looking forward to it at all.

Any doctors in the house??

WHY??

OH my god Britney....

WHY?????

WHY??

WHY?????????????????
















Seriously, what is wrong with this girl?

She walked into a salon yesterday without an appointment and told them she wanted to shave her head. When they said they wouldn't do it, she took the razor and started shaving it herself.

Is this a cry for attention? Nervous Breakdown? Drug-induced stupor?



I honestly don't know. If you want a good laugh - go check out this site for a funny video of the pop princess high.

The IRS Sucks

Yay! It's Friday!

I love Fridays so much! I REALLY love Fridays when my boss is gone (which is the case today). I'm going to TRY very hard to get some stuff accomplished, but I really just want to sit online and shop all day. Especially since I got paid yesterday.

You know what sucks? My mom did my taxes and I have a bunch of winnings that I have to claim to the IRS from playing video keno. I actually won $1500 three times in one week, so I was given tax forms at the time I won. Anyway, I have tons of losing lottery and sports book tickets to offset the winnings, but I can't use them because I'm not itemizing. Not fair!! I need to hurry up and buy a house so that I can keep all of my gambling winnings.

I'll be playing at the MGM Grand all day tomorrow.



Is anyone coming into town? I think I would have heard something by now, but if you are going to be around - stop by and see me in the poker room. I'll be there all day.

Christina and her husband spent Valentine's Day at Disneyland this year.
They are so adorable....




God Victoria Beckham looks NASTY. She almost looks like a circus freak in this picture. Too damn skinny...





Well - have a good weekend everyone!!

Call me the list girl!!

Top 10 Reasons Why Today is a Good Day

10. The sun is shining

9. I got paid

8. The weekend is almost here

7. I'm about to get rid of my gas guzzling, speed racer, driving me to the poor house car. This is actually a double edged sword because I love my car, but the Honda Civic that I bought is much more affordable.

6. I get to see some of my favorite girls tonight.

5. A really cool chic noticed me :)

4. Three guys asked me out last night. Again - double edged sword. It's nice to be noticed - but I was placed in somewhat of an awkward position. I can't even figure out why all of a sudden guys seem to be taking notice. I haven't changed anything about my looks. I was in a pretty good state of mind last night though. I hear that makes a difference.

3. I started watching The Office Season 1 last night on Netflix and it's so damn funny!!!! I'm sorry I waited this long.

2. I live in Vegas!


and the number one reason that it's a good day...



1. I'm eating these yummy krispy kreme donut holes right now and they are GOOD!

Grammy Recap

Okay - here it is - the long awaited CarmenSinCity Grammy Red Carpet Report...


First off - why is this the sexiest woman alive?????? There are MUCH hotter chicks around (Jessica Alba and Jessica Biel to name a few) - AND - what the hell is she doing at the Grammys anyway???? Is she cutting an album that I don't know about? Is she switching careers on me? Or, does she get an automatic invite to every red carpet now that she's the "sexiest woman alive"?



Oh Shakira sweety - why????? Why does such a talented girl with a rockin body do this to herself? Comb, brush, straightening iron, gel - SOMETHING PLEASE!!!! Where in the hell is this girl's stylist?




I'm sorry Mandy - are we boring you? Such a pretty girl - such a waste that she showed up looking like this...






Petra and James...

Not a lot to say about them. She looks beautiful as usual and I still haven't figured out what she sees in him - but whatever - he must have a good personality or something...





Ahhhhh - a breath of fresh air. I love this girl, I love her look, I love the hair, the dress, the makeup - she's hot. Not to mention the awesome tribute she did to James Brown. The girl's got talent and I never get sick of looking at her or watching her perform. Loving Christina...



I love Brooke Hogan so I'm gonna cut her some slack. I'm just not really thrilled about this look on her. She's a pretty girl, she just needs to figure out what looks best on her. Maybe she needs a new stylist or something...





I do like this dress - don't get me wrong. But come on Vanessa - take some chances girl. She wears the same kind of dress to every function. She's always dressed like a Christmas package and although I think she looks hot - I'm getting bored...



I saved the best for last....

Nicole Sherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls. MMMM

I love this dress. It's bold and she took a chance and it worked. The cut fits her beautifully and the color is amazing.



Okay - one more I promise this is the end...

What was this chick thinking wearing this to the Grammys? Honestly, I have to wonder a few things...

1) Did anyone see her before she left and if so, why did they let her leave the house looking like this?

2) Did she really think that she looked good or was she just desperate for attention and she knew this was the way to do it?

3) How does someone like this get an invite to the grammy's and I'm stuck sitting at home blogging about it?

Goodnight

Well, unfortunately for me, my plans fell through and I never got to go to my favorite restaurant in the whole wide world this weekend. Maybe I'll go with these guys when they come into town. Who knows. I'll get there again someday for sure.

I'm still searching for a car. I test drove one over the weekend. It was an Eclipse of course. It's hard to be excited about any car when I have such a nice car now. Everything else pales in comparison. I called my insurance agent though and found out that my car insurance is going to drop $977.00 every six months when I ditch the car I have now. Can you believe that???? Done. That car is GONE.

Since I don't have a valentine this year, I'd love to hear what everyone else is doing on the big day. Anything exciting? romantic? unique?

I'm in my "I hate Sunday night and tomorrow is Monday" mood. So, this post is going to be short. Tonight it's even worse because I worked yesterday so I had a really short ass weekend.

Don't worry though. I'll have a grammy style (carmensincity from the red carpet) report for you guys tomorrow.

More on Anna Nicole...

I snatched both of these tidbits from the Perez Hilton Website....


He's got some explaining to do!!!

In addition to the illegal narcotics that were found in her room, Anna Nicole Smith also had large amounts of prescription drugs on her possession at the time of her death.

One problem though....

All the pills - including the sedative valium - were in Howard K. Stern's name!

---------------------------------------------------------------

Anna Nicole Smith's mother had earlier said that she thought her infant granddaughter should be with the child's birth father.

Now, Vergie Smith has changed her mind and Access Hollywood is reporting that she is heading to the Bahamas today to file with children's services for immediate custody of Dannielynn.

Is this what Anna Nicole would have wanted????

The tragic blonde and her mother have been estranged - and that's putting it mildly - for years.

Smith hated her mom and Vergie wasn't too fond of her daughter either.

Though it is unlikely that Anna Nicole left her mother any money, this move to go and snatch Dannielynn could be a ploy to get some of the former Playmate's cash.

Sadness all over, especially for that baby girl.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

And with that, I'm done blogging about Anna Nicole. We can all read the celebrity blogs and gossip magazines if we want to hear the latest.

So, it's Friday! I'm very pleased!

I'm actually coming in tomorrow for 4 hours to make up the hours I missed this week. I had to leave early one day and come in late another day due to previously arranged appointments. At least I have the option of making up the time so that I'll get a full paycheck next week.

I have a party I'm going to tomorrow after I leave work. Should be fun. I'm also hoping to fit the mall in this weekend as well.

Sunday I'm going out to dinner at my favorite restaurant in the world and I cannot wait! I'm going to get an appetizer, a main course (probably surf and turf) with a side of fresh asparagus and then something amazing for dessert. Pictures to follow of course.

Today I am test driving a 2001 Eclipse. Funny huh? It's the exact same color and model as my last Eclipse. I've owned 3 of them and this will be the 4th one if I buy it. The mileage is high, but the price is right and I'm sure the insurance will be a lot lower because it's older and it's a 4 cylinder as opposed to the 6 cylinder I have now.

I hope you guys all have a GREAT weekend.

Breaking News!!!!!





I should have entered the Death Pool. I called this one a mile away...

Anna Nicole Smith dies after collapse


BREAKING NEWS

Updated: 3 minutes ago
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - Anna Nicole Smith, the former Playboy playmate whose bizarre life careened from marrying an octogenarian billionaire to the untimely death of her son, died Thursday after collapsing at a South Florida hotel, one of her lawyers said.

Smith, 39, collapsed and was unresponsive while staying at the Seminole Hard Rock Cafe Hotel and Casino, said the attorney, Ron Rale. She was rushed to a hospital.

“I can confirm that she is deceased. It’s as shocking to me as to you guys,” Rale told Reuters. “I don’t know anything further. (Her lawyer and husband) Howard (K. Stern) obviously is speechless and grieving.”


Seminole Police Chief Charlie Tiger said a private nurse called 911 after finding Smith unresponsive in her sixth-floor room. He said Smith's bodyguard administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation about an hour before she was declared dead.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am willing to bet A LOT of money that the cause of death is a drug overdose.

The girl has been looking ROUGH in the past few weeks, months, years.

And honestly, how did she lose all of that weight??????

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Personally, this is what I think happened.

I think that Anna Nicole Smith and her boyfriend Howard K. Stern are the ones responsible for killing her son Daniel. I think he either stole the methadone from them or they gave it to him. I think that she's been carrying this guilt around for a few months now and using drugs to cope. I think she finally overdosed - she probably wanted to die anyway.

How ironic that she died the same way Marilyn Monroe did. She's been compared to Marilyn Monroe her whole life. It's only fitting.

This is what Anna Nicole Smith used to look like. She was beautiful! I had a girl crush on her.



Classy almost...





This is Anna Nicole Smith after all of the heartbreak, chaos and sadness in her life...

Not to mention the DRUGS...

Small World

Yay! Wednesday is here. I think we can all agree that Wednesday is better than Monday or Tuesday. I had the weirdest experience the other day at the MGM Grand Poker Room. I stopped in to play a little poker just for a few hours because I was in the area and I had some time to waste before I had to head to a meeting.

I sat down at a brand new 1-2 NL game and as usual I was the only chick. I'm cool with that. This moronic kid that looked about 10 years old says to me "I'm sorry miss, this is poker, not poke him". I'm thinking how much I can't wait to take his money. But that's just how this table was. It was like a MAD TV skit on Comedy Central or something. It was definitely one of the most entertaining tables I've ever played on.

But, I digress. So, this guy is talking about Baltimore and how much he hates the place. I let him know that I'm from Baltimore. He's like "well, I actually lived in Pasadena, MD". I'm like "yeah? I went to High School there". He's like "well, I lived near Gibson Island". I'm like "i went to Chesapeake". Chesapeake High School is like 2 minutes from Gibson Island. He's like "oh god, you probably know my ex-wife". He tells me her last name and I'm like "Tina?? I know her - we used to be on the cheerleading squad together". He immediately orders a drink from the cocktail server and slinks down in his seat. Apparently there's a lot of bad blood there because she forced him to move back to her hometown (they met in Ohio). He built a nice house near the water and then she left him and she got to keep the hosue. Poor guy. He never expected to run into someone in Vegas that knew her. How funny?

Next thing I know this guy sits down next to me. He looks a tad bit familiar to me but I figured I'd seen him around the MGM before. He says "I've never played this game before - do you think you could give me a few pointers?" I start salivating and licking my chops. I very sweetly offer to "help" him. He was kidding though. Next he tells me that he plays like "lightning". I'm thinking "yeah, whatever you say buddy". He's like "you don't get it do you?" I never claimed to be intelligent. He's like "I have a blog too". Oh my god!!!!! It's Lightning36!!! How cool!??!! We are at the same table, in the same casino, at the same time, and we didn't even plan it. I didn't even have my camera dammit!!!!!!!!!! You know I hate to miss a good photo opportunity.

I swear it's such a small world.

Okay - quick question. I'm buying a new car. Not really a new one. I've decided to get rid of the Eclipse. It's a bit much. Really high payments and I lost my discounted insurance, so the rates are killing me. I've decided to just get a used car for now. I checked Craigslist and found a nice VW Jetta. I also found a nice Honda Civic. I contacted both people to find out when I can come by and look at the cars, but both of them are not located in Las Vegas. One of the cars is in Texas and one of the cars is in Sweden. Both of the prices they list include shipping to my front door. The car that is in Texas is actually listed on EBay. I saw pictures of both cars and they look and sound great and the prices are right. I guess my question is - would you ever buy a car without actually test driving it first? Does this seem like a really bad idea????

SuperBowl Wrap-Up

Okay, if I ever ever ever root for a team, you should bet on the opposite. I swear. I suck at this sports thing. I root for teams for dumb reasons though (like the color of the uniform, the cuteness of the quarterback or if I ever lived in the state). I root against teams if they ever beat the Ravens in the playoffs (thus my dislike for the Colts).

I gotta say that I wasn't impressed with the SuperBowl commercials this year. Why so many do gooder ads? I mean, like all of the Black History Month ads, the service announcements for heart disease and the sappy coca-cola commercials. They all sucked ass. BORING. I did enjoy the Bud Light advertisements. They got my vote for most creative and definitely most entertaining. Don, Aaron, and I got a really good laugh when we watched the K-Fed commercial. Love him or hate him, at least he knows how to make fun of himself and he can take a joke.



Yesterday I met the boyz over at the Venetian around 1:30 p.m. The tourney started at noon. When I arrived Don was still playing and so was
Chad. I bought in for $300 over at the 1-2 NL table and Don got knocked out of the tourney 5 minutes later. So, I cashed out and we headed to our favorite donkfest - the MGM Grand. We ran into Ray over there, he decided to play cash all day and skipped the tourney. As usual, I played my ultra conservative and tight game. It paid off and I made a profit. Good day. I had fun. I love walking way with more money than I started with.

I guess Aaron didn't do so hot on his sports picks. I'll let you go over to his blog and read about that - but here he is about to rip up the tickets...



Well, it's Sunday night and I'm not feeling quite as happy as I was on Friday afternoon. Life is NEVER as happy on Sunday night as it is on Friday - but I'll live. Have a good Monday :)
