Older, Wiser.

First things first, there are other birthdays today that I have to give shout-outs to:

Stephanie, Erik's best friend in the world and soon-to-be bride, shares July 12th with me which I think is the coolest shit in the world! I've said it before but I wouldn't want the share today with anyone else.

Other July 12th birthdays:
  1. Roman Emperor Julius Caesar (100 B.C.).
  2. Actor Topher Grace (That 70's Show) is 26.
  3. Olympic gold medal figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi is 33.
  4. Actress Cheryl Ladd (Charlie's Angels) is 53.
  5. Fitness guru Richard Simmons is 56.
  6. Singer-musician Christine McVie (Fleetwood Mac) is 61.
  7. Comedian Bill Cosby is 67.
Hi! I think this is a pretty kick-ass list of birthdays, if I say so myself.

So okay, okay, the birthday business is done (for now) let's see what else is going on lately. Lord, Bobby Brown is in trouble again. This weekend a judge ordered Bobby to surrender to police or he was going to get locked up again. I think Whitney got all Whitney-Mariah on him and made his stupid ass turn himself in.

Bobby Brown Posts Bond on Battery Charge

R&B singer Bobby Brown turned himself in to jail officials Sunday night — a few hours before a court-imposed deadline — and was released after posting a $2,000 bond on charges he hit his wife, singer Whitney Houston.

Seriously, the saga of Whitney & Bobby is so insane! It seems like every few weeks one or the other is in the headlines, whether it be because of legal troubles or, well, I guess it's only been for legal troubles.

That's right Whitney, pray to Jesus ... Woman, pray!

In other stupid-ass news, have you heard that the Republicans are trying to figure out a way to postpone the election if there is a terrorist attack? NO FUCKING WAY CAN WE LET THEM CONTROL ELECTION DAY!!! If they can steal an election under "normal" circumstances (though I would hardly call a scenario where the presidential election-deciding state is governed by the "winning" candidate's brother "normal") can you imagine what they might get away with if they change the date?!? There would be millions of confused people who might not know of the change or how to cast a vote properly. NO FUCKING WAY!!! I hate this administration! All they do is scare the hell out of us and then take advantage of the terror they inflict upon us! Grrr I am so angry over this kind of talk. No way ... We can't let them do this! I will keep on top of this and report any news as it develops.

We know who we have to vote for in November:

Kerry Vows To Restore 'Truth' to Presidency

President Bush has governed in a dishonest fashion, trampling values on every issue except fighting terrorism and leaving voters "clamoring for restoration of credibility and trust in the White House again," John F. Kerry and John Edwards said in an interview ... "The value of truth is one of the most central values in America, and this administration has violated" it, Kerry said in an interview with The Washington Post aboard the Democrats' campaign plane Friday. "Their values system is distorted and not based on truth."

Amen to that!

My parents wanted me to come over today so I think I'm going to spend the day with them. Erik and I are meeting Steve and Stephanie for her birthday celebration later on tonight. I was going to try and get my kitty Majik today (she's going to be living with me again) but I might have to postpone picking her up until tomorrow. More later ...
