Monday Friends Report, 01/26/09
IRISH MIKE - probably the sanest person in Michigan, noted that the "Girls Gone Wild" crew showed up at a tavern in Saginaw and he missed the show! Curses! Reports are that girls came from all over the area to be go wild.
BINA - threw a party after the Inauguration last Tuesday. It was a great time. Toasts were drunk to the success of the new government. She held the gathering at Pam's house. Pam bought all the wine, provided the snacks, and sent out the invitation, so as you can see, Bina's party was a huge success.
PAM - won the $5 award for answering the quiz last week.
FELIX - I'm going hiking the week after the Super Bowl. Hoping to do 90 miles in New York. Wish me luck.
MARI - did not show up at the coffee house in her pink suspenders as expected, but says it will happen "soon". She had several well-planned excuses which were accepted by her fans -- at least for the time being.
STEVE - complains incessantly about the snow blower he was given for a Christmas present. It's not that great at blowing snow, but who knows what other talents it might develop.
IRENE - and family are safely back in Australia.
ALICE - looking lovely.
SCOT - has been way too busy. It seems like he's the only one with much work lately and he has too much. He and Trase have been invited to Florida for 10 days, but have many barriers in the way of getting this invitation accepted.
FELIX - I feel we're gonna have to figure out a way to stop giving the rich all the money (e.g., advertising.) Do you know what happens to the price of a product when a company gives a guy who is already filthy rich (actors, musicians, athletes) hundreds of thousands of dollars to do a commercial? ) I think there will be a 'cleansing' at some point. When the average guy can no longer afford $200 a ticket to see an NFL football game or NBA basketball game or rock concert...these owners won't be able to pay these athletes $10 million a year...
PAT W - "Go see Benjamin Button. It's just a great film."
SPARTY - There is no justification for the type of "play" that resulted in the injury [to the Michigan hockey player] - although in my opinion most hockey players are just this side of being goons.
from BILL FROM WNNCO: A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel. The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.
