10 about 2.5

17 05 2011

1.  Much to my dismay, CBS did not rehire Charlie Sheen.

2.  I’m not a fan of many TV shoes — especially sitcoms — but, “Two and a Half Men” with Charlie Sheen rocks my world. Hilarious. I seriously laugh out loud at every episode.

3.  Well, every episode except during that season Charlie was engaged to Chelsea. That season was kinda lame. But, other than that, gut-busting funny.

4.  So, when Charlie went a little crack crazy and CBS fired him, I was understandably saddened.

5.  I kept hoping that they’d hire him back. I realize this hope was fairly ridiculous, considering Charlie called show co-creator Chuck Lorre a “maggot,” “earthworm” and a “stupid, stupid little man” (among other worse names).

6.  I just didn’t see how this extremely popular, successful show could be as highly rated without Charlie, the main character. I love his brother, Alan (Jon Cryer) and the housekeeper, Berta (Conchata Ferrell), but I don’t think they could carry the show (Note: previews on the CBS website that feature Charlie are difficult to find. Bitter much?).


7.  So, the search for a Charlie replacement began. Names mentioned: Rob Lowe (hot, but no, doesn’t work for me), Robert Downey Jr. (too much of a movie star), John Stamos (still Uncle Jesse to me) and Hugh Grant (I actually liked this option).

8.  But, the replacement is none of the above. Instead, it’s Ashton Kutcher.

9.  Yuck. Not happy with that choice. AT ALL. I’ll watch an episode or two to see how he’s written into the story line, but totally unappealing choice to me. Boo!

10.  Charlie’s response: “Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer … oh wait, so am I!”


10 hot ones about baseball

12 05 2011

1.  I really don’t want to be one of those female baseball fans who only focus on the players’ looks.

2.  I can carry on a conversation about lineups, batting averages and defensive abilities with no mention of hotness.

3.  But, I do have my weak moments — mainly when Derek Jeter is involved. Wow.

Spring training is hot.

4.  And, while watching the Rays-Indians game last night, when the Rays’ announcer said, “Grady Sizemore is hot,” I couldn’t agree more.

5.  He went on to talk about his hot hitting, but I lost him after that. And got lost in Grady Sizemore. Holy hotness.

6.  Ahem. How ‘bout those Indians? First place? Shocking.

7.  And, the Rays are rockin’. People doubted, but I didn’t.

8.  Even after the loss of so many core players, I thought they’d still be good.

9.  I do miss Carl Crawford. But, I really love the addition of Johnny Damon.

10.  I’m kind of sad Manny Ramirez didn’t stick around, but the Rays seem fine (or better) without him.

10 about MC Hammer and a new dog

3 05 2011

1.  If MC Hammer’s “2 Legit 2 Quit” comes on anywhere at any time, I will do the hand motions.

2.  This usually isn’t a problem … except when I am running.

3.  I’m not the best runner, so I need every bit of energy in me to complete a 3-mile run. When I use energy to make Hammer hand motions, I struggle.

4.  So, I think it’s time to take it off the iPod because, like I said, I can’t help myself. If I hear it, I gotta do it.

5.  I adopted a dog in March, and it’s taken me two full months to get a decent picture of her.

My sweet Chloe

6.  Chloe is about 2 years old. She is a pointer mix according to some people. To others, she’s a hound mix.

7.  She lived on her own for at least one year. She lived under a shed and ate trash from Publix to survive. She had a litter of puppies that were adopted, and once the adoption agency wrangled her (she used to be skittish around people because they used to shoo her away from food), I adopted her.

8.  Chloe rocks! She loves everyone. She’s adapted so well. She hasn’t caused any (OK, many) problems.

9.  As one might guess (due to her past living situation), she does enjoy rooting around in the trash. Once I realized that, it’s easy enough to avoid.

10.  And, she likes to rearrange things while I’m at work. This involves her taking items (mostly shoes) and putting them in her area. Thank goodness she doesn’t chew them; she just moves them.
