Project Runway: You
 

I should have posted this earlier, with 3 hours to go till the east coast viewing I don’t know how many people will see this. Does anyone watch “Project Runway” on Bravo? I’m soooo addicted! The first season my BF was hooked, I only really tuned in one weekend when they had a marathon of all the shows. The second season we both watched. This season I’m watching and he’s usually too tired and goes to bed. It’s so good though, and I normally hate reality TV. Any thoughts who goes home tonight? My money is on either Jeffrey or Vincent.

Lance Bass Is Gay
 

Some on the web are calling it “Hollywood’s Worst Kept Secret.” Lance has been spotted for months at notoriously gay events and hang-outs, but nothing has been said publicly about it. Well finally Lance Bass of N’Synch has come out!

Lance Bass, band member of ‘N Sync, says he’s gay and in a “very stable” relationship with a reality show star. Bass, who formed ‘N Sync with Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick, tells People magazine that he didn’t earlier disclose his sexuality because he didn’t want to affect the group’s popularity.

The singer says he’s in a “very stable” relationship with 32-year-old actor Reichen Lehmkuhl, winner of season four of CBS’ “Amazing Race.”

Head over to People Magazine to see the full interview as well as the cover of the next issue of People with Lance on the cover.

I Don
 

So being in Virginia all weekend I was a little out of touch with, well everything. On Saturday the Scissor Sisters released their new single “I Don’t Want To Dance” from their upcoming album “Tada.” Well let me back track, they released it in Europe (and probably Canada), it won’t be released here till mid august. Grrrr! However that little hurdle is not problem for the powers of the internet.

For those who have no idea who Scissor Sisters are, they are a funky little group from the US who became wildly popular in Europe, but not so much here except in the club scenes. They have a very retro sound, some songs sound like the Bee Gees, some sound like Elton John, others have a very 80s synth feel to them. They are basically pure fun! Alas their retro feel probably has hindered them from hitting it big in the US given the current climate of TRL driven music. If you have never heard them, give them a chance!

As for their new song, it’s a Bee Gees flavored song with a bit of synthpop pop thrown in. It also borrows the piano riff from the Frankie Valley classic “Oh What A Night.” At first I wasn’t too impressed, but after a few listens I can’t stop listening to it. I can’t wait for the album in September and I am just hoping they will for once tour in the States.

Oh, you can see videos and listen to song clips from their first album over at Scissor Sisters

Shoutbox Issues
 

The fricken spam bots have gotten a little smarter lately and have been filling the shoutbox with sexual medication links/messages and such. I’m trying to fix it, but the problem is they see the form and auto-input their spam messages, and the spam-stopping scripts I have aren’t stopping them anymore.

At this point if it keeps up the options are 1) kill the spam box, 2) make people register to use it or 3) try an off site/3rd party shoutbox (though I don’t think that will fix it).

Made It Home Today . . . .
 

and I am so fricken tired! I was falling asleep at my PC tonight trying to get the soap page updates up. I wish I had more to blog about but I don’t. My week might be boring from here on out. I’m planning to dive into school work the next three days, hopefully Friday night will bring something fun with my friends. I gave up going out last Friday night with them, which turned out to be a good thing in the end! Hopefully this Friday will be less eventful and more dance filled.

Crap and $hit
 

That is what my BF usually says when I call him up and ask what he’s doing. It’s also how I’m feeling today. I have put off going back home till tomorrow morning. Basically my poor eating habits the past 3 days have caught up with me, bleck. Either I wasn’t eating enough, or what I was eating was crap. Today I feel like crap!

In a bit I’m going to go shopping. I’m just waiting for my mom to come home. I’m seeking out some DVDs, one of which I will admit is the recently released “Best of She-Ra” DVD. I need something to watch and I’m not feeling like going to the movies tonight (but one never knows).

Meanwhile as much as I wanted to hate the new Jessica Simpson song, it’s now stuck in my head and I’m liking it (even if she did remake “Holiday”) I even set it as my phone’s ring tone, eeek! Remind me not to let that ring in public or at least around some of my friends. I was feeling silly last night.

Finally to the person who ended up here by doing a yahoo search for how to link two jelly bracelets together. Well I do know how to do that, but it’s tough to describe. I’d have to show you in person. I’m not exactly sure how you ended up here based on that search though.

Road Trip!
 

Mom seems to be okay, so I’m headed back home today. Hopefully Nikko won’t decide to be carsick this time around. I’m just trying to decide when to leave, before or after the soaps? After the soaps might mean more traffic, but I’ll at least not have to watch the soaps after a long road trip. My phone is charging right now so it will probably be after the soaps at this point. Uhg, I hate having to travel on a weekday! It throws everything off schedule.

I never did get to the movies. “Lady in the Water” has gotten TERRIBLE reviews so I won’t be wasting my time on that one. I still want to see “Pirates 2” and “Monster House.” I did rent “She’s The Man” this weekend, it was seriously the only thing in Blockbuster new this week. I was surprised, it was a cute little movie! It’s basically a remake of the 80s flick “Just One of the Guys.” However it was a good remake, not a terrible one.

Moved Beyond Words
 

At first I thought someone made this up, then I realized it was real. I’m just speechless. I don’t know what is more sad, this video or the fact that I know She-Ra’s boyfriend’s name was Bo.

My Really Really Bad Day
 

Last night I went to bed around 1am after enjoying some old episodes of “Buck Rogers” on DVD. Fortunately I decided I didn’t feel well enough to go out and I didn’t make a cocktail to enjoy at home.

At 3am I get a call from my brother informing me our mother has been sick most of the week and was not doing well right now, I should probably pack a bag and come home. I soon talk to my mom, I need to come home right now. I say it’s 3am, I can’t get home very easily right now and tell my mom to hang up and call an ambulance if she’s this ill. She does.

I pack my bags and try and figure out the best way to get home. Bus is a no go, it doesn’t leave till 8am. The train is a possibility, but I’d get in around 9 or 10 am. Eventually it becomes apparent that I have to drive, so I borrow my BF’s car since I still don’t have one. Hmmm, guess I’m going to be starting that car buying process up again!

I leave around 4:30am for home, realizing I need food and most importantly caffeine. Fortunately there is a McDonalds with a 24 hour drive through. Yes! Unfortunately I arrive and they inform me the computer is down, it will be about 5-10 minutes . . . . it will be another 10 to 15 minutes . . . . the computer sometimes reboots at this hour in the morning . . . . I’m thinking do you need a computer to make a quarter pounder? I know how much the value meal costs off hand, I really don’t care about change at this point I just need food and caffeine. Eventually they decide to let me buy the food after the manager seemed to act like it was a bother, since the computer still isn’t up. Yeah when I get a chance I’ll be writing a complaint mail and I’ll never be going to that McDonalds again. I ate the food, even though I thought there could be bodily fluids in it.

I get one my way, Nikko throws up in the back seat. Oh happy joy joy! I eventually got home, scrubbed the back seat, dropped off the dogs and my stuff and then headed to the hospital to find my mom.

I find my mom just as they are moving her out of her ER room and into the hallway, because they need to make more room for new patients. This was about 8:30. They ordered a CT scan, which would not occur until NOON! By noon the ER is basically empty, though they don’t put us back in a room. By 1:30pm we were finally allowed to go home, the deduced it was an intenstinal virus most likely and nothing serious.

During our time in the ER we had the joy of the old lady with the giant bad wig constantly moaning to have more pain medication. The Jamaican lady who did not appreciate that the doctor basically baby talked to her, she understood English just fine thank you. There was the man who was not homeless or lived in a shelter, he just tended to walk around from place to place a lot. When asked if he had a family, he said no and that society was just a big ball of death. The doctors then asked if he ever thought about harming himself or others. Finally there was the lady who was brought in completely passed out, who apparently was in a car but didn’t know whose car it was or where she was going. Upon coming to she threw a fit and tried to escape. She was subdued and wailed the rest of her time there. She may still be there.

So you might think that is the end of my bad day, but you would be wrong! After we got home I had to go to the store for my mom. On the way home, litteraly around the corner from my house, it happened. The Ford truck in front of me stopped dead in the road. This isn’t uncommon for the people around here. I stopped, the guy behind me didn’t know what was going on so he decided to go around us both. This is when the truck in front of me just decided to back up for the hell of it and run right into the front of my BF’s car! Just as luck would have it, the people driving didn’t speak English well at all and it wasn’t their car they were in. Seeing the panic in their eyes when I pull out my phone to call my BF, I fear they are going to run for it. They did give me the name and number of the person who owned the car, so they said. I took down their license and make of the car to be safe. Fortunately the guy behind me saw it all and I got his info as well. The damage to the car really isn’t bad at all, it’s the plastic grill/bumper and that’s about it. The car wasn’t going that fast, but fast enough that I couldn’t do anything.

So right now I’m sitting in my house. I dare not go out, something bad might happen. With my luck my house will be hit by a missile from North Korea tonight.
