    I once saw a video of Dave Goelz signing some pictures. He would grab a fans' picture, one at a tme, from the large, crowd. Well, right after he signed a picture of The Muppets poster, he was handed a pic of Ernie and Bert. He frankly said " I'm not either of these guys " but signed it anyway. I'm sorry, but it furiates me when serious non- muppet fans get to meet the Muppeters, while us REAL Muppet fans are scrambling everywhere trying to just find an address to send a nice fan letter. I also bet that when the guy with the pic of Ernie and Bert went straight home and put it up on ebay. :mad:

    My mom is watching Extreme Couponing. They had a preacher on the show who proclaimed that the Lord led her to coupons, and then she took one of her parishioners shopping with her, actually saying "I'm afraid that if she doesn't believe in coupons than she might not believe in Jesus".

    I had no idea that coupons carried such a significance.

    That show is still on?

    I'd like to know how buying in bulk things that you will never use that will be sitting in storage for eternity is saving you money and not wasteful :smirk:

    One episode had people donate all the food they bought to a local food bank, which was very nice of them. But most people just kept their stuff in the basement. I think it's a form of hoarding.

    I would just like to say, once again, that if anyone deserves to be rich and famous for couponing, it's my mom. Seriously, my mom was couponing LOOOONG before couponing was all the rage... she was coupoining before couponing was a J-O-B job. She's been couponing since I was just a little kid, and I've been around for 20+ years... now it's only been within the last few years or so that the bad economy and sky-rocketing prices has driven other people to do it as well, the only problem is, they got famous for doing so, and I'm sure in some of these cases, also got just a little wealthier from having these shows or these couponing sites and such.

    Once again, I am baffled by the logic of my school.

    They are doing some...I have no idea...I guess maintenance, and have one of the roads blocked off. And yet, they put of a sign pointing to the dirction of the blocked road saying "Campus Tours"

    Well, how are you supposed to get to the building if the road is blocked? :smirk:

    I wonder if that makes me one since I shop there? But seriously they have good deals in there. I just try to go in and get out as fast as I can. Lol.

    I've been trying to buy a new pair of white classic leather Reeboks. In the past I've never had any trouble finding 'em, they're everywhere. Now it seems that all the stores stock in the way of athletic shoes is crayolas-on-acid abominations. It looks like somebody's three-year-old designed the colors. Seriously, who buys those hideous things besides paintball players?

    And to think that I used to go by the women's athletic shoes and just grumble about all the girly-wirly pink.

    I'm so sick of everybody's obsession over whether or not Princess Kate is pregnant or not.

    Y'know, it's a wonder she never got pregnant before the way she and William horsed around before they even got married... you'd think royalty would know better than that, but then again, look at the trouble Harry always gets into...

    It's a royal pain isn't it? But seriously I never cared when they got married and I still don't care now. They ain't helping my life. The media just feeds on them like bees on honey!

    I'm so sick of all this stupid celebrity gossip. I hate it all, those losers at TMZ, do this all day, they sit in front of celebrity's houses and just follow them around all day, so all their news ends up being, "Katie Holmes eats a sandwich" or "Brad Pitt goes for a walk" It's complete garbage.
    The thing I hate most about it is...last year they played episodes of The Office every weeknight at 7:30 on ABC, now it's replaced with the TMZ garbage every single night!

    See this is why I don't ever read or listen to the news. I'd rather watch singing chickens. :cluck:
