When you get a chance, check out my article on Mr. Gilbert Arenas. And while I'm at it, if you know anyone who is a basketball fan, please direct them over hoopsaddict.com. We are doing exciting stuff over there, and I'd hate for it to be in vain..plus we're trying to get our numbers up. I sound like Jerry Lewis right now.

Ok, so I have a minor confession..I miss my old job. Don't get me wrong, I love my new boss, and the other gentleman who has been training me, and I actually like the work that I am going to be doing, especially the training aspect. Its the closest I can get to teaching, without having to do actually do it. But I do NOT like sharing an office with someone at all, and I definitely don't like the fact that at any moment I have to be held hostage by small talk. If it was small talk about sports, I would have no complaints, but I am living in fantasy land if I think that would happen. Instead, I get to hear nursing homes stories, medical procedure horror stories, and apologies for bodily function mishaps. As I have said before, its not that I am insensitive at all, its just at work certain things do not need to be discussed--and certainly not every damn day. At my old job I just had my non-deodorant wearing, no hair brush using, Alzheimer's patient in training intern, who at least provided comedic fodder for my blog, and even if he was only a seasonal pain in the ass. I suppose I need to grow up and shut up, but I wanted to vent a bit.

Rhetorical question: If Heath Ledger hadn't died, would I be hearing all these stories praising his role in the Dark Knight as the best villain ever? I know I shall find out for sure when the movie comes out, but the media sometimes does an excellent job of inflating some one's importance and accomplishments after they die. I've been hearing about Ledger's legendary performance since the day after he died, so my expectations are sky high at this point, as they are about the movie in general. They've come a long way in this Batman series since Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson.

My mind is all over the place this morning.

Your Body's Calling - R Kelly
This is actually the best song R. Kelly ever recorded in my humble opinion. The creepy factor was low, the music was good, and he was actually singing, and not sing/rapping like the kids and Kelly are currently doing. The sad part is there is a remix to this song, where R Kelly and 15 year old Aaliyah are singing back and forth about what they want to do to each other. Its pretty disgusting, and I refuse to post that song here in this family blog.

i think heath is going to do a great job because from what i've seen so far, he appears to be like the joker i would put into a movie. batshit (pardon the pun) insane and scary as hell. i like my joker way more scary than jokey. now, if only we could add a lil' harley quinn to the mix.

Try talking to your office mate abt sports. She may surprise you. lol

I'm wondering about heath as the joker myself. He has been hyped up so much that i wonder if the role can possible meet the elevated expectations.

I wouldn't be surprised if heath wins or is nominated for an academy award though.

And correction: the best R Kelly song is step in the name of love. He *almost* redeemed himself with that one.

The buzz on Heath's joker role started before he died. He'll most likely be nominated. I can't wait for Friday.
R. Kelley is trash, I threw out his cd's when the tape came out. He was in his late 20's when he married 15yr old Aaliyah.
That's evidence of guilt right there.
