Today's entry is pretty much not about the truth.
First off, it looks like Borat is in even more trouble. The people in a small Romanian town are saying they were paid a pittance to embarrass themselves for this movie. Here's the link. They were told it would be a documentary and didn't sign the proper paperwork.
And, the mother of a child Michael Jackson was accused of molesting pleaded no contest to welfare fraud. This is the woman whose credibility, or lack thereof, led to the singer's acquittal.
And don't get me started on the political stuff today...except for this from Neal Boortz' site.
Whoever this guy is, I hope he doesn't live in MY neighborhood.
But there is one little bit of truth to be told.
I had a brain-worm a couple days ago. That's like an ear-worm, but it's not a song. In my case, it was about a book from my childhood. It was driving me nuts because I could remember the subjects of two of the stories, and two single lines from a poem in the back of the book. And that was it.
Well, last night I was talking with Brin and telling her about it. Since she loves bunnies, I figured maybe she might know the book I spoke of. "The first story is about this, and the second about this..." and she'd say, "Sure, that's such-and-such." Well, while I was talking to her, I remembered the title. She did a fast search on eBay...and FOUND IT. The exact book I had been looking for! And at a reasonable price!
I don't want to jinx this; the auction ends at about 7:45pm PST. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I've already bid and, since I'll be at work, Brin has agreed to monitor the end of it all.
If I get it, I'll let you know. It really is a nice little children's book.
Okay, one joke to lighten it all up. This one came from my Laff-A-Day mailing:
Be seeing you.
