it’s aliiiiiive

Well, I’m back at work anyway. I’m still really tired, but I feel better so that’s something.

And just in time for Friday the 13th. heh.

This poster made me laugh. Usually the Keep Calm memes are kinda lame (except for the Sparkle one) but this one cracked me up.

Actually, this one did too:

Damn right. Like a fucking lady.

Okay, dudes. I’m off to catch up on work and then maybe there will be a happy hour somewhere I can latch onto!

Y’all have a great weekend. And remember, this dude is not your friend:

Actually, you’ll probably want to avoid anyone in a hockey mask today.

Where have I been today? Getting my awesome hair done by my awesome hair chick. And boy is she awesome. The way my hair was looking, I thought I was going to have to be this week’s featured Hot Mess.

Not anymore. I’m just plain hot now.

Anyway, I know you’ve been waiting on the edge of your seats for this week’s Hot Mess Friday. Let me put you out of your misery…
Hulk Hogan cheated on his wife with a close friend of his daughter. The “good news” here is that the woman is 33 years old…not 19. So, lest y’all think he’s robbing the cradle…

This boggles my mind. He’s 54 years old, has bleach blond hair and a Ringmaster mustache. I’m not sure if Hulk is the hot mess of if the girl sleeping with him is…who knows? Am I the only one surprised he had an option other than his wife?

Today we have two, that’s right TWO, hot messes for one. The first hot mess is not a celebrity–well, not yet anyway. With the publicity she’s been getting, she’ll be infamous before she knows it. And the 2nd hot mess? Well, he’s a celebrity…and he’s gonna be a baby-daddy.

Deborah L. Smith is a librarian in Poplar Bluff, MO. And like a good cliche, she refused to work the night the library held a promotion for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, fearing The Boss” would disapprove. (and by The Boss, I mean God, just in case you weren’t with me…). Her job at that function was to empty out bins and restock the books–not actively PROMOTE witchcraft..Unfortunately for Ms. Smith, her paying boss disapproved of her unwillingness to work and fired her.

So what does this newly out of work librarian do? She enlists the help of the ACLU and sues her former boss (not God) and the Library. Yep. That’s right. The ACLU. The very same ACLU who has spent countless hours writing letters to libraries and school districts who refused to stock the Harry Potter books or allow kids to check them out.

Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling
A Zeeland, Michigan school district banned students in grades K-4 from taking the Harry Potter books out of the school library and required students in grades 5-8 to obtain parental permission before withdrawing the books from the library. The policy also forbade teachers from reading the books out loud during classes. After the ACLU sent letters to the public schools, the district formed a committee to review the issue and rescinded the policy.

Poor Ms. Smith. She’s truly a hot mess. I understand her belief system (well, no I don’t understand it, but she does have a right to her beliefs) however, she was not asked to do anything out of the ordinary for those “witchcraft” books. She was just asked to do her job and was fired when she didn’t. Hmmm. I guess she’s hoping the ACLU will work some magic on her behalf. Oh. No. That’s not right. She’s hoping the ACLU will perform a MIRACLE…not work magic. My bad.

OTOH, maybe the ACLU is the true hot mess here. Pick a side, already! LOL Hmmmm. You decide.

Clay Aiken is gonna be a baby-daddy. Now you might think that’s news enough to qualify him for hot mess Friday, but wait til you read the details.

The mother is Jaymes Foster, who served as executive producer of his new album, On My Way Here, and is a close friend. The site said he stays at her home when he’s in Los Angeles.

Foster, 50, is due in August, and this will be her first child. She is the sister of hit producer David Foster. Aiken is 29.

The best part? Foster was artificially inseminated. I know. You’re shocked.

I have nothing to add to this. I mean, what can I really say? Seriously, I think Hot Mess Friday will just write itself.

Hot Mess Friday

Today’s Hot Mess? Amy Winehouse. (May 22, 2008)

Amy Winehouse fled her home last night (21.05.08), claiming ghosts were trying to harm her.

The troubled 24-year-old singer says a poltergeist – who she has named Henry – is haunting her North London flat and is trying to harm her.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I totally believe in ghosts and it very well could be that Amy’s flat is haunted. But my guess? Henry is actually the name she gave her hallucination after she freebased some badly cut heroin. Or maybe she’d just tweaked her last batch of homemade meth. Whatever. I’m thinking Henry is just her subconscious telling her she is a big hot mess.

Wait, there’s more!
(April 25, 2008)

Winehouse, 24, was said to have punched a man inside a bar early Wednesday
morning, then later head-butted a 38-year-old man who tried to hail her a

Assault carries a six-month prison sentence in London, where the incidents reportedly took place.

Unfazed by her legal situation, Winehouse left her home at about 10 p.m. Thursday night to go out on yet another bender.

Amy, Amy, Amy. Fine. You punched a guy in the bar. I’m sure Henry told you to do it. But why on earth would you head-butt the only friend you had left in the world? The only person who was willing to help you at the time?

Big. Hot. Mess.
