Various and Sundry Stuff

I talked to my former boss yesterday and she was SO NICE. I guess the bipolar thing was swinging the right way. She was so complimentary of me, and said that she would have nothing but good things to say about me in a reference. So hopefully the pendulum will keep swinging towards the "I'm a happy person!" way until my references call.
--------
Dave Navarro annoys me more and more each week on Rockstar INXS. Telling Ty that he was "Ty-riffic"??? C'mon Dave. How long have you been saving that little gem of a statement? And Jordis, what happened to your voice last night? I think maybe she was getting a little overconfident. I still think she is the best one on there, but personally, I think they will pick Mig because he is the right one for that band. He is even Australian.
--------
My brother-in-law babysat for Princess yesterday while I went to the doctor, and is babysitting again today while I have my interview. He is generally a pretty reserved guy, but when he gets around Princess...he is just so great with her, and she LOVES him. He even changed his very first diaper and did a great job. Thanks, BC!
---------
Someone compared the new Tommy Lee show to The Simple Life (I guess because they are both fish-out-of-water type stories?) and I don't think they could be more wrong. Tommy really seems so earnest in trying to get along with his teachers and qualify for the band and learn the drum routines...even in trying to learn chemistry and such. I think his little brain just can't wrap itself around the classes he is taking, but he seems like such a decent, cool, genuinely nice guy. The total opposite of that hag Paris Hilton.

I only watched her show once, and they showed her and Nicole staying on Staten Island in some little house with this family. The woman's dog had died recently, so they decide to do something nice and get her a new dog. Well, they get her two HUGE great danes which cost like $2000 each. They are bigger than the house. But the family is like, aw, how sweet those girls are to think of getting us a dog because we were sad. Then, of course, the bill for the dogs shows up and Paris and Nicole have moved on to their next "adventure" and these people were stuck with the cost. It just showed how out of touch these broads were to do something like that, and not consider that the family A). can't afford dogs like that, B). can't have dogs that large in their itty bitty house, and C). might get attached to the dogs and then when they can't pay for them, have to return them. Idiots.

And finally, how cute are my kid and my dog?

I watched the Tommy show last night and well, I thought it was wayyyy to scripted. When he was "trying" to play the drums, I thought it was so fake. He could make them sing if he wanted. Overall, I agree that he came across as a genuinely nice guy. Cool dorm room too!

Love the dog and Princess pic!

Shannon said...

kid/dog....very cute...on a scale, Im thinking ummm 97%? okokokok, 100

Kathleen said...

That is a very sweet picture!

Glad to hear the bipolar former boss was on an upswing. I'll keep my fingers crossed that she stays that way!

BTW, you do realise that Hockeytown Cafe is all about the Red Wings, right? ;-)

Danielle said...

glad old boss helped you out!!! Dave Navvaro is annoying!!!! I love that show...and that pic is too damn cute!

Danius Maximus said...

so cute! together more cute than should be legally allowed

Charlie Mc said...

I am sure that whole dog thing was staged, like everything else on those "reality" shows. i am sure FOX picked up the tab....

Great pic!

Shelley said...

Hi there, here via Better Safe than sorry. That picture is just so adorable! Hate the new Tommy Lee show. Couldn't even watch the whole thing last nite. Am enjoying reading your blog entries. Talk soon!

Guppyman said...

Did Jordis suck last night or what? Bad bad night for her.... Maybe she realized she was competing to be in INXS? She threw it on purpose?

Scully said...

You do have the cutest little girl ever!

Glad to hear things went well with the bipolar boss. I hope the meds keep working until you get the reference out of the way.

And what a bonus having a family member who can help out but actually likes and gets along with children and changes the diapers! You have a gem in that man!

As for Tommy Lee, I'm starting to like the boy.

MommaK said...

That picture is priceless! Are you gonna frame it?

Thanks for stopping by my cousin's yesterday. You're the best:)

Are you having spam trouble too??

trinamick said...

Love the pic! I kinda feel bad for Tommy Lee. People at UNL take themselves way too seriously.

Natsthename said...

Woo hoo, you caught her on a good day!! Now, you have to call your future employer and tell them to call the former boss TODAY!! ;)

And the photo? SImply precious!

Bumbling Bav said...

I have not caught the Tommy show yet. Will have to check it out soon.

Great pic of your babies!

Patsy Darling said...

Was it just me or was it truly patethic when Mig was trying to I guess you can call it dance on the stage. It looked like a fit.

Danielle said...

I am in love with that photo!

Michele said...

That picture is simply glorious!

Evey said...

I was so excited to see this pic on your blog today, I have been wanting to see a pic of your dog forever. Adorable pic, they both look so content. Gypsy reminds me a lot of my dog.

Lassa said...

I thought the same thing about Paris and Nicole when they stuck those poor people with the bill for the Great Danes they didn't even want. Losers!
Also, they shoplifted nailpolish and told the clerk they would be back to pay for it later, which they never did.

I watched a little of Tommy last night and I thought he seemed genuine as well. Dumb, but genuine!

And the pic of Princess and Gypsy is adorable. BFF :)

Twist of Kate said...

I haven't watched the Tommy show yet, not sure if I will. I'm trying to cut down not add :) That picture of your little girlie and the pup is seriously adorable, like a poster!

InterstellarLass said...

I don't like Dave Navarro for two reasons...1) he looks like he had plastic surgery, and 2) he and Carmen are just too 'ew' for me. I used to think he was totally hot.

Tommy Lee. What is there to say about that boy other than he needs some ADD medication.

Princess and puppy are adorable!

Molly said...

Tommy Lee makes me smile, I have to agree that he comes across as someone genuinely nice and cool. I would like to chill with him!

Cute pic of Princess and the dog :-)

Miss_Vicki said...

Last night I watched the 2 first episodes of Tommy Lee GTC from last week I haven't seen the new one that was on yet. Pretty funny shit, the looks on his face are priceless. I love what he did do that dorm room though!!! And his face when "The other Tutor" showed up :op

I can't look at your RSINXS comments yet, I DVR'd last night's episode so I need to see that first. I still have the other episode recorded from last week when Mig did the Frampton song, that was absolutely incredible.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Great doggy/Princess pic!

trine said...

that is one seriously cute photo, True...

glad the arse-kissing went well! ;-)

Dawn said...

Ty-riffic??? ugh

HighMaintenanceHussy said...

Just adorable, of course. :)

I'm sad I'm missing out on all this reality tv stuff. I need to commission somebody to record this stuff for me for when I come back home.

And now back for another episode of Amish in the City...

Jen said...

I agree- I like Tommy Lee. I think he seems like a cool guy. I have new found respect for him.

Paris Hilton is probably the most annoying person on this planet. She sounds like such a moron when speaks about anything..."It was fun. I had fun. IT was hot. I had fun with him. We're having fun." Seriously, that's all she says.

Jen said...

PS- dog and baby are SO cute.

Better Safe Than Sorry said...

pretty cute!!!
the black and white is a nice touch too.

some girl said...

Dave Navarro gives me the heebie jeebies. Is it just me, or does he seem kinda fem?

Adorable picture and FUN blog! :)

Marie said...

I haven't seen that show yet, but I did see previews of Tommy. I may catch an episode.

What a cute picture of Princess and your dog! :)

Raehan said...

exploding cute-o-meter cute.

Last Girl On Earth said...

EEEEK. Dave Navarro. I was performing actually on the Carson Daly show last year, and Dave and Carmen were guests. We had to stand there and pretend that they weren't really making us all sick! He was doing some kind of "Newlywed Game" shtick with them. It was TOOOO gross!

That picture of your daughter, though. So beautiful! Lucky you TJG!

The Humanity Critic said...

Just passing through, cool blog by the way.

LisaBinDaCity said...

I adore the pic of your daughter and pup - too cute! I loved growing up with a hound in the house.

LMAO @ the bipolar boss!!!

Mel said...

Your baby and your dog are adorable!

Damn! I keep forgettting about the Tommy Lee show. I've been wanting to watch it.

And yeah, I hate Paris fucking Hilton. Skank!

Loz said...

1) yay for the Aussie!! That show is only on cable down here, and I don't have cable so I can't watch it.

2) I couldn't watch the Simple Life anymore after Nicole and Paris were working in an airport and going through people's luggage as they were taking it off the plane. Disgusting, selfish little morons they are. They have NO sense of the real world.

3) I can't believe how much Princess looks like you! The photo is great!
