Happy Belated Birthday, Jozalyn
I'm almost about two weeks past the original date, but better late than never. Diah surprised me this weekend with a visit here which reminded me that I still hadn't put anything on here about Joz's b-day on June 23rd. The even sadder thing is she told me this weekend how old she is and I've already forgotten that quick...
Bobby Being Bobby
The annual Essence Music Festival was this past weekend and once again I missed it. New Edition reunited for it, including Bobby Brown. It appears he was up to old schtick again and while the group was hitting sharp dance moves, he was running all over the stage doing his own thing. Then for his set, he went half an hour over his time and got booed off the stage. Just when I thought I was ready to see a BB comeback. Not now. Matter of fact, NE needs to go ahead and tour without him since he evidently refuses to grow up.
Oh Kenny Boy
Talk about a bitter twist of irony. Ex-Enron CEO Ken Lay died this past weekend when his heart just gave out. Some people said he should have gotten the death penalty anyway because of all the lives he ruined with his web of lies at Enron. It turns out some of his former employees even had parties to celebrate the occasion. Just a prime of example that you reap what you sow.
Containing the Flash
Somebody found a way to do it. D-Wade agreed to a 5-year extension worth about $80 million. Personally, I think if there's ever been a better argument for being the highest-paid player in the NBA, Wade is it. He's definitely worth that extension though. I'll wager right now that he won't be there after it's up. Shaq will be gone by then and so will any chance of any more championships. Plus, we all know there's no such thing as team loyalty in that league anymore.
"I'm Not Anorexic"
That's what Keira Knightley recently announced, trying to diffuse the rumors. Uh, news flash, KK...look in the mirror...yeah, you are. Go back to the KK of the King Arthur days. And eat something, for crying out loud. It's never a good sign when you can see your rib cage without the need for an x-ray machine.
Another One Makes the List
I wouldn't go as far to call it a boycott, but it's pretty close. I just found out they don't make their world famous strawberry shakes for the summer. Instead, they have some frozen coffee mocha drink. How did that fad even catch on? Coffee's nasty enough as it is but then somebody decided to freeze it? So yeah, I won't be doing Arby's for a while...but at least theirs is only temporary as it's coming back in fall. It better.
