Express Checkout: Babies, Skunks, Hobbits and Munchkins

- Hugh Hefner sent future divorcee Kate Gosselin a letter offering her 400 thousand dollars to pose nude in Playboy. Does anyone really want to see Kate Gosselin naked? Anyone? Luckily, she declined because it wouldn't be appropriate for the children. Of course, exploiting them for money on a reality show is ok, but somehow being naked in a men's magazine is really crossing the line. But again, don't want to see it ever.

- This morning, my dog got sprayed by a skunk (that's complacency for you... going from a dog that never got sprayed in her life to one that actively sought out a skunk), and I was forced to go out and get some anti-skunk shampoo and deodorizer. Now, tell me if any of these items seems out of place for the as listed on the deodorizer part: cars, farm vehicles, floors, walls, carpeting, clothing and ferrets. Really, how did ferrets get wrapped up in all this? I didn't realize that ferrets were an inanimate object that might need spraying.

- The impasse between the crew trying to get The Hobbit movie off the ground (and the studio) and the estate of Tolkien has been settled. So perhaps another movie about little fellas with hairy feet will be finished and shown before the Mayan Calendar turns over in 2012 (on my 36th birthday no less).

- Netflix is going to allow the public (not just Netflix members) to stream The Wizard of Oz for free on Saturday October 3rd to commemorate its 70th anniversary (Oz, not Netflix). I think this is sort of cool, even if it is a ploy to get people to try their streaming service. And I have doubts that it will be available in Canada either. But the thought is still there.

For as horrible a human being as Kate Gosselin is, the main reason I despise her is because of her hair. I don't know why, it just irritates me. "Ooh, everyone wants my hair!" Honey, it's not your hair, it's the hair from A Flock of Seagulls, and no one wanted it then, either.

...not even the Flock of Seagulls.

SF, I was wondering what that hairstyle reminded me of. It is a goofy hairstyle.

As far a Kate goes, she does have some mixed morals. And, she won’t admit that having the cameras in her house has ruined her family. This woman loves the cameras, but I guess not enough to get naked.

Good to hear about the Hobbit thing.
