Love or Money

This article is good for a chuckle: Reality Bites: Law Firm Drops ‘Love or Money’ Bachelor By Lisa de Moraes, Washington Post Thursday, June 12, 2003; Page C07 Like the Trojan women — at least in the movie — the women of “For Love or Money” (FLOM) have risen to moral victory over skanky man Rob Campos. Campos, the lawyer-bachelor on NBC’s pick-a-chick series, has been dumped by his Dallas firm because, the law firm’s founder says, the FLOM Women were so repulsed by Campos’s behavior in this week’s episode.

The Early Eighties

I’m in the middle of doing chores, but can’t stop watching the John Hughes’ movie marathon on TNT. I’ve seen these movies (The Breakfast Club, Some Kind of Wonderful, Sixteen Candles) at least 30 times, yet I watch them every time I flip through the channels and see them on. As to be expected, these movies remind me of my years in high school during the early 80s. Not sure why I get nostalgic as they weren’t the best of years, but I wonder about what’s become of the people I hung around with. It’s sort of sad really, but […]

Christmas in May

I know I should be sleeping right now, but I’m waiting for my laundry to dry, so watching rebroadcast of Oprah. I’m feeling a wee bit jealous of people in audience as she’s giving away 1 million dollars worth of products. I want one of everything on her list of favorite things for Spring. Especially, the Weber Q Grill and Cart. Way cool! I’d also like an Apple iPod 15-GB MP3 player. Oh well! Back to reality. I want – I don’t need.
