I Need Dessert

I'm hungry now for dessert. Thinking about Rum Raisin Haagen Daz. Trying to think of something else, too. I may go to the grocery store in a few minutes.

Disney World Trip Postponed

In the airport on Sunday morning, while I was waiting for my flight to San Francisco (for the opening of The Walt Disney Family Museum), I decided to postpone my Walt Disney World trip. I figured that I was doing a big Disney thing on Sunday, and I figured (and hope) that I will be in a better situation financially in December. (I put myself on waiting lists for Disney in December, and I changed my airline flight).

That Chantix Commercial Is Too Long!

Today I was watching "The View", and then this Chantix commercial came on. It was too long! There are many drug commercials that come on TV, both in daytime and night, but this one really brought it home just how amazingly long these things can be! It sounded like a timeshare sales commmercial to me, with the pretty music and the announcer with the nice voice, who explained EVERYTHING to you. You sat there watching this old man talk occasionally about his smoking, and then he's in the background with this older woman while the voiceover announcer tells you all these things, some of which are pretty funny. When they talk about how the drug can give you strange nightmares, for example. The pretty music kept my attention, though- we didnt' change the channel. It was so amusing. And too long!

Health Care in America- Unaffordable

Today I saw the movie, "John Q" with Denzel Washington. It's a riveting movie, and calls to attention how difficult it is to have adequate, affordable health insurance, in times when nobody is hiring for any good jobs and everyone is working part-time hours. I recommend this movie. I rented it from Netflix.

New Public Storage Ad For Addicts

Have you ever seen that show on cable called "Hoarders"? Well, it seems to me that Public Storage's new ad no longer tries to hide the fact that the people who need Public Storage are idiots. It's for people who don't want to throw away anything. If you have to store so much stuff for the future, it's idiotic!

Their old commercial with the lady who goes into the garage and can't find the car- that commercial made it a little less obvious that she was an idiot. The new commercial calls the idiocy into the picture immediately. I guess all people can be a bit challenged when it comes to getting rid of stuff. I know that I've inherited the collector and clutter gene. However, I've seen my evil ways, and I have changed.

Well, the fact that money is so tight for me and my customers nowadays keeps me in line.

So, today's message is this- stop wasting your money on storing things you don't need. Give some of that stuff away if you have to, but get rid of it!

I'm Going to Disney World!

Yes, sir, I'm going to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida next week. I will be staying at the Villas at the Wilderness Lodge (a Disney Vacation Club Resort), which is my favorite resort at WDW. I am trying to change one of my nights for a stay at the new Bay Lake Towers, but I only want to get a Studio accommodation.

Anyway, I'm excited about going, but cash is kind of tight right now. I don't want to postpone this trip- I've done that once already. This will be the last time I can go to Disney World until next July probably- when I get out of my Acting school.

More about this trip later.

Macy Gray Not Talking

Tonight Macy Gray was eliminated from "Dancing With The Stars", one of two contestants that was eliminated tonight. After the show, she refused to comment or be interviewed by the media. Macy seemed really shy to me; she seemed really shy on Tuesday night's show- and kind of reserved. You have to have lots of confidence and show lots of personality to survive on that show. You have to have lots of energy to win. Macy didn't show that.

I understand her not wanting to talk, though. It's not sour grapes- it's in her most famous song: "I try to say goodbye and I choke. Try to walk away and I stumble. Though I try to hide it, it's clear- my world crumbles when you are not here". Something like that.

The U.S. Postal Service is Amazing!

I mailed a letter to Puerto Rico on Saturday with just regular U.S. first class postage. I simply dropped it into the mailbox inside the U.S. Post Office here in Los Angeles. My customer in Puerto Rico emailed me back on Monday morning thanking me for sending it to him, saying that he got it.


Quick Thoughts

Really fast....Rush Limbaugh (who I don't really know a lot about, but Kareem Abdul Jabbar's Twitter page made me know that Rush Limbaugh is an idiot) is a fucking idiot. I hate people who make everything negative about race, and blame Obama for stupid things.

I hate one of my ex bosses. No, Pat, not you. Another one. No, Brian, not you either.

Tomorrow the Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Resort and Spa open for the first time to the public. I don't know if there will be a public event of some sort, but it would be nice to go if there is. I'll call in the morning to find out. I just hope I don't run into that bitch ex-boss of mine if I go.

So many scams and waste of time on the internet. Focus on what you want to do, and do it. Don't be sidetracked. Money is tight- focus that, too. Time is tight- don't waste it.

Time for bed now.
