this song has been in my head all day...so i decided to post it since it makes me happy :)

I never thought my life could be
Anything but catastrophe
But suddenly I begin to see
A bit of good luck for me
'Cause I've got a golden ticket
I've got a golden twinkle in my eye
I never had a chance to shine
Never a happy song to sing
But suddenly half the world is mine
What an amazing thing
'Cause I've got a golden ticket
It's ours, Charlie!
I've got a golden sun up in the sky
I never thought I'd see the day
When I would face the world and say
Good morning, look at the sun
I never thought that I would be
Slap in the lap of luxury
'Cause I'd have said:
It couldn't be done
But it can be done
I never dreamed that I would climb
Over the moon in ecstasy
But nevertheless, it's there that I'm
Shortly about to be
'Cause I've got a golden ticket
I've got a golden chance to make my way
And with a golden ticket, it's a golden day
Good morning, look at the sun!
'Cause I'd have said,
It couldn't be done
But it can be done
I never dreamed that I would climb
Over the moon in ecstasy
But nevertheless, it's there that I'm
Shortly about to be
'Cause I've got a golden ticket
'Cause I've got a golden ticket
I've got a golden chance to make my way
And with a golden ticket, it's a golden day

FOX jokes about killing Obama



"When asked her opinion of the recent scandal surrounding some comments made by Sen. Hillary Clinton, which FOX Contributor Liz Trotta described by saying that, "some are reading [it] as a suggestion that somebody knock off Osama." Bill Hemmer quickly corrected Trotta, having noticed that she had said "Osama" when she meant "Obama." At this point, Trotta said, "Obama. Well...both if we could!" Trotta then laughed gleefully."

don't they ever learn?

Little Brother




"Little Brother announced yesterday to HipHopDX that they will be releasing a new LP, less than a year after their last album Get Back hit stores. The release will be a new album, but not entirely."

"And Justus for All" will be released some time this year.

WTF.



Troubled singer Amy Winehouse has sent a bizarre appeal to her jailed husband Blake Fielder-Civil - through a mouse. In a video posted on YouTube, Winehouse appears with fellow musician Pete Doherty playing with "about 30" newborn mice. "This one's got a message for Blake," Winehouse says, holding one of the tiny creatures on her finger and pushing it towards the camera. "Blake, please don't divorce mummy. She loves you ever so," she says.

yikes!... that's all i have to say. lol

-cris

wow.



over 75,000 people attended an Obama rally in Oregon. for this many people to show up in Orgeon (a republican state) shows that we truly are on our way to hope for this country :)

are you kidding me?!



haha. these are hilarious...i cant believe people actually file lawsuits like these. they should be ashamed of themselves lol

Here are the Stella's for 2007:
7TH PLACE:
Kathleen Robertson of Austin, Texas was awarded $80,000 by a jury of her
peers after breaking her ankle tripping over a toddler who was running
inside a furniture store. The store owners were understandably surprised by
the verdict, considering the running toddler was her own son.

6TH PLACE:
Carl Truman, 19, of Los Angeles, California won $74,000 plus medical
expenses when his neighbor ran over his hand with a Honda Accord. Truman
apparently didn't notice there was someone at the wheel of the car when he
was trying to steal his neighbor's hubcaps.

5TH PLACE:
Terrence Dickson, of Bristol, Pennsylvania was leaving a house he had just
burglarized by way of the garage. Unfortunately for Dickson, the automatic
garage door opener malfunctioned and he could not get the garage door to
open. Worse, he couldn't re-enter the house because the door connecting the
garage to the house locked when Dickson pulled it shut. Forced to exist
for eight, count 'em, EIGHT, days on a case of Pepsi and a large bag of dry
dog food, he sued the homeowner's insurance company claiming undue mental
anguish. Amazingly, the jury said the insurance company must pay Dickson
$500,000 for his anguish. We should all have this kind of anguish!

4TH PLACE:
Jerry Williams, of Little Rock, Arkansas garnered 4th Place in the Stella's
when he was awarded $14,500 plus medical expenses after being bit on the
butt by his next door neighbor's beagle รข€“ even though the beagle was on a
chain in its owner's fenced yard. Williams did not get as much as he asked
for because the jury believed the beagle might have been provoked at the
time of the butt bite because Williams had climbed over the fence into the
yard and repeatedly shot the dog with a pellet gun.

3RD PLACE:
Amber Carson of Lancaster, Pennsylvania earned 3rd Place status because a
jury ordered a Philadelphia restaurant to pay her $113,500 after she
slipped on a spilled soft drink and broke her tailbone. The reason the soft
drink was on the floor? Ms. Carson had thrown it at her boyfriend 30
seconds earlier during an argument. Whatever happened to people being
responsible for their own actions?

2ND PLACE:
Kara Walton, of Claymont, Delaware sued the owner of a night club in a
nearby city because she fell from the bathroom window to the floor,
knocking out her two front teeth. Even though Ms. Walton was trying to
sneak through the ladies room window to avoid paying the $3.50 cover
charge, the jury said the night club had to pay her $12,000...oh, yeah,
plus dental expenses. Go figure.

1ST PLACE: (May I have a fanfare played on 50 kazoos please)
This year's runaway First Place Stella Award winner was Mrs. Merv
Grazinski, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma who purchased a new 32-foot Winnebago
motor home. On her first trip home, from an OU football game, having
driven on to the freeway, she set the cruise control at 70 mph and calmly
left the driver's seat to go to the back of the Winnebago to make herself a
sandwich. Not surprisingly, the motor home left the freeway, crashed and
overturned. Also not surprisingly, Mrs. Grazinski sued Winnebago for not
putting in the owner's manual that she couldn't actually leave the driver's
seat while the cruise control was set. The Oklahoma jury awarded her, are
you sitting down? $1,750,000 PLUS a new motor home. Winnebago actually
changed their manuals as a result of this suit, just in case Mrs. Grazinski
has any relatives who might also buy a motor home.

Offensive Obama shirt?

what do you think?


A tavern owner in Georgia has been selling shirts with a Curious George look-alike character eating a banana, with the words "Obama '08" on it. Protesters have begun lining the streets, saying that the shirt is offensive to the African-American community. The tavern owner says the t-shirts are still selling. Watch the video.

Something to smile about..


SAN JOSE, Costa Rica will plant seven million trees in 2008 to soak up as many greenhouse gas emissions as it produces, in a bid to become the world's first carbon neutral nation.
"The stated goal is to be the first neutral country as far as greenhouse gas emissions is concerned," said Energy and Environment Minister Roberto Dobles.
The project aims to plant seven million trees this year, meaning that in Costa Rica there would be 1.5 trees for each Costa Rican.
Pretty dam cool in my eyes.

thanx to George Bush...



Blackwater, American government's mercenary group (Bush's private army) that has murdered countless number of unarmed Iraqi civilians, is now going back to Iraq and will also be unleashed in the city streets of America.

you hear that? AMERICA! this right-wing, fundamental Christian sponsored, mercenary group will be "patrolling" our streets. this group, who have already been kicked out Iraq before, are going back after the new Iraq constitution (that was written with the help of American gov't) now says that they are no longer able to expell Blackwater and other private security firms from their own country.

members of Blackwater are also being payed $1,200 a day compared to $200 that soldiers get for fighting the same war. Bush has invested billions of dollars in this group.

give me a break!




*taken from current.com

People who sleep fewer than six hours a night — or more than nine — are more likely to be obese, according to a new government study that is one of the largest to show a link between irregular sleep and big bellies.

The study also linked light sleepers to higher smoking rates, less physical activity and more alcohol use.

The research adds weight to a stream of studies that have found obesity and other health problems in those who don't get proper shuteye, said Dr. Ron Kramer, a Colorado physician and a spokesman for the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.

"The data is all coming together that short sleepers and long sleepers don't do so well," Kramer said.

The study released Wednesday is based on door-to-door surveys of 87,000 U.S. adults from 2004 through 2006 conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics, part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


i usually sleep less than 6 hours or over 9 all the time! plus naps in between...i am soooooo not obese! dam studies, trying to link obesity to every factor of life.
