Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Thursday, October 19, 2006

"She Loves You - NO NO NO"
"How Much Is That BABY In The Window?"
"WE Teach Your Children GREAT"

Welcome To THE COUCH...Sit on Down and Get Comfy..

Hummm….need to work on my teacher’s presentation skills as I did not get as many comments on THE SEVEN WONDERS OF THE WORLD as I had expected!

Or maybe it is just that I have a bunch of slackers in my classroom!

Coco...teach me to motivate please! (more on Coco & teachers later)

Well…it all comes down to tonight. Game 7 of the National League Championship Mets vs. Cardinals…one game for the Championshipnever gets better than that!

Will we get a Detroit vs. St. Louis World Series and the Duck (our friend Damm) vs. The DuckMaster (our friend Dixie) grudge match? We will see.

Have to be impressed with the poise of John Maine, the rookie pitcher for the NY Mets.

BIG spot and he handled it like a veteran. Even after loading the bases in the first inning, he got the final out to hold the Cardinals without a run.

Paul…Paul…Paul…you should have listened to your kids.

This McCartney-Mills divorce is going to be uglier than a lard bucket full of armpits…

Wooo…THE COUCH is using Country Slang already! (tis toooo I found it HERE)

This woman is going for every penny she can get and making some real nasty allegations. The DAILY MAIL (OK, so it ain’t the Wall St. Journal), says it has acquired a court document, that if true, could ruin the “cute Beatle” forever.

According to the Mail, the papers allege:

  • McCartney once attacked his wife with a broken wine glass, stabbing her in the arm and causing profuse bleeding.
  • That he used illegal drugs and drank to excess.
  • That McCartney had pushed his estranged wife into a bathtub while she was pregnant with their child.
  • McCartney had later objected to his partner breast-feeding their daughter. The newspaper quoted the alleged court papers as saying McCartney had told his wife "they are my breasts."
  • McCartney had grabbed his wife's neck and started choking her during a trip to the U.S. in 2003 and on an earlier occasion pushed her over a coffee table.
  • McCartney had forced her to cancel surgery for two months, as it interfered with their holiday plans.

Mishcon de Reya, (sounds like a resort town in Mexico to us!) the law firm representing Mills McCartney in the divorce, said it would not comment on "leaked or allegedly leaked documents."

Paul McCartney's law firm said the musician "would very much like to respond in public and in detail to the allegations made recently against him by his wife and published in the press but he recognizes, on advice, that the only correct forum for his response to the allegations made against him is in the current divorce proceedings."

Now…THE COUCH knows that Paul isn’t an angel and probably still likes to “roll one up”, but some of this stuff makes us shake our heads.

THE COUCH can imagine the comment “those are my breasts” said in jest, and now being used as if it were said in anger and jealousy.

If all these other abuse allegations were true…with the media spotlight this “lovey-dovey” romance garnered from the beginning, don’t you think we would have heard about them earlier.

THE COUCH was always a John fan…but we think Paul is being raked across the mud by a money-hungry witch. But we will see.

So, Madonna fell "in love at first sight" with this 13-month old Malawi child she is trying to adopt.

THE COUCH did not realize the child has a father who is now asking all the groups trying to stop the adoption to butt out.

Seems Yohane Banda has said “These so-called human rights groups should leave my baby alone.”

Why does it seem to THE COUCH that Mr. Banda is doing just that…”leaving his baby alone” and that there is some real cash being handed under the table on this one.

YO… Madonna Louise…there are thousands of children WITHOUT parents who are in need of adoption…do not let us find out you are buying this one…that it is a business deal…

Finally for today…the happy story…

USA Today has compiled its 2006 All-Star Team.

No, not sports stars, or musicians…


"Through enthusiasm, energy and innovation, these extraordinary teachers are making a difference for their students, their schools and communities," says USA Today editor Ken Paulson. "It's our honor to recognize their impressive achievements."

All-USA Teacher Team members are selected each year from kindergarten through 12th grade teachers nominated nationwide. Education professionals in a two-step judging process consider how well nominees define and meet their students' needs and most importantly, the impact they have on students and student learning.

You can find the complete list of teachers HERE.

Now, all that visit THE COUCH know about one particular teacher who would be on this list if they included Canada in the selection process.

We do know that recently she was recognized by her superiors and asked to speak to a group of her peers on how to reach “at risk” students and that she is torn between her classroom and the opportunity to become an administrator and help other teachers to do what she does every day.

We salute you also Coco.

Enjoy your day all….

Thanks for sitting on THE COUCH, hope you enjoyed your stay.

Remember .. Nets For Malaria - - find the big SI's Nothing But Net logo ... Or call 202.887.9040. Every cent goes to buying nets to place over the beds of children in Africa to stomp out Malaria. PLEASE HELP.

Keep that spark of insanity kids...It helps keep you an individual.

  2. I have to totally agree with THE COUCH. It does appear that she is a money-hungry witch. It is really hard for me to believe these allegations

    Oh how I am so praying for The Match of the Year... LOL

  4. From the mind of Meribah:

    I find it difficult to believe these allegations too. When I saw Paul and his wife on Larry King Live, I found her to be very pushy, loud and opinionated. Paul seemed much more subdued. I'm no fan of Paul, but I can't imagine him doing all the things he's been accused of doing, especially to this woman. Just my opinion.
    Yep, Coco should be on a list somewhere (not a hit list! LOL). We need more teachers like her!

  5. Amanda Says:
  6. Yep, I can see Paul firing one up with a beer..well, ok, not a beer, some good cognac maybe...I can also see him saying that about her claim women everyday. And big deal if he didn't want her to breastfeed, that doesn't mean he beat on her..I think she's trying to "milk" him..tsk tsk..Tonights game should be good thats for sure, here's hoping both teams come to play! Coco is the #1 Soul Patrol Teacher! Woooooo!

  7. Fred Says:
  8. I'm watching the NLCS as we speak, errr, write. Go Mets!
