No Particular Place To Go

2008-03-14 - 12:52 p.m.

Last night, after I helped Bob get his DAT reinstalled, I was hit with an unusual feeling - I didn't feel like going home. I just started driving. I drove around for about a half hour...not going anywhere special, just riding around.

Then I'd get hit with the idea of going to Barnes & Nobel for a cuppa and a book...but they closed at 10. Then a Jamba Juice...but they closed at 10. The WORLD fucking closed at 10.

Starbucks? Ever go into a Starbucks for a REGULAR cuppa? They look at you like you're crazy.

So I dropped by a friend's house, saw the light was on, and knocked. He was still up, so we shot the breeze for about 30. Then I finally went home, watched Whose Line, and mucked around for awhile.

There was no funk, just the notion that I didn't want to go home.


Here Rep. Jeb Hensarling talks in Congress, on the record, about what Democrats have done in the last fifteen months. If you remember, they were elected into the House and Senate on the promise of reform, especially earmarks and gas prices. What's been done? Evidently, not much at all. I filled my tank last night at $3.49.9/gallon. The only upside of that is that it will last me about two weeks.

Oh wait - the price of oil has gone up tremendously, right? It's now around $110/barrel! OPEC refuses to increase production! Well, why haven't the Democrats done anything about it?

Oh, that's right - the price of oil doesn't have anything to do with anything. It's all Bush's fault.


Okay, TV is now officially the vast wasteland its critics always claimed it was:

NEW YORK - Paris Hilton is looking for a new best friend.

Hilton will choose from 20 potential confidantes on a new MTV reality series in the United States, tentatively titled "Paris Hilton's My New BFF," premiering later this year, the network announced Thursday. "BFF" is an abbreviation for "Best Friends Forever."

Production is scheduled to begin in Los Angeles at the end of May, MTV said. The contestants will live together in a house - drama! - and try to prove themselves worthy in the areas of loyalty, endurance and "girl politics."

Hilton, an executive producer on the show, will "teach the secrets of celebrity living - how to turn your enchanted life into a multimillion dollar brand, how to manage public feuds and always rise above, how to survive scandal and then make it work for you, all the while wearing six-inch heels."

A casting call has kicked off on, where visitors can vote for Hilton's aspiring hangers-on.

The 27-year-old hotel heiress continues to command attention despite speculation her star power would diminish following her jail stint last June for violating probation in an alcohol-related reckless-driving case.

Hilton - flanked by her current boyfriend, Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden - sat in the front row Tuesday at the L.A. Fashion Week show for 24-year-old sister Nicky Hilton's Nicholai line.

Madden's twin brother, Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden, and close Hilton pal Nicole Richie are the parents of a two-month-old daughter, Harlow Winter Kate Madden.

Hilton and Richie co-starred in "The Simple Life" reality TV series.

Anybody else remember when MTV - the original "music video channel" - actually showed videos??

=== has a list of the world's 50 most powerful blogs.

Sorry, gang - nobody on Diaryland made the list.


Today is Steak & BJ Day.

Well, I can get a steak, at least.

Be seeing you.

shoot, I remember and was present for the first video MTV ever aired. We watched stupified for weeks, we couldn't believe we could finally WATCH our favorite bands without a concert ticket. :)
