Tuesday Thoughts

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Tuesday, May 01, 2007





Due to our day of silence yesterday (which DID fit into the theme of MANIC MONDAY), we did not have a MONDAY MATINEE ON THE COUCH.

It shall return next Monday with something that will delight all y'all... (well we hope so, since at this point we have no idea what it will be! - bwahahahahahahahaha)


Did some housekeeping on our links...

There are still a couple of links to blogs that do not get updated often, but they are friends and we will keep them there, until we hear they are no longer blogging...

We also added two. Layla's Classic Rock Faves and Writing From The Inside Out, both from Layla aka Barbara.

Check them out and tell her BOND sent ya....


Yes, that was us visiting blogs on Sunday morning way too freakin' early. Sleep was not in the cards, so at about 4:00 AM CST we began a journey across the Bloggosphere...


What goes up...

The cremated remains of actor James Doohan, who portrayed engineer "Scotty" on "Star Trek," and of Mercury astronaut Gordon Cooper soared into suborbital space Saturday aboard a rocket from Spaceport America in the New Mexico desert.

The rocket launch is part of a new commercial enterprise from UP Aerospace of Farmington, CT.

The ashes of Cooper and Doohan were accompanied by the ashes of 200 other souls, whose last wishes included a ride into space, for the small price of $495.

As it was a suborbital launch, the rocket parachuted back down to earth on the White Sands Missile Range.

...must come down.


A story of love...distant love....

Ninety-five miles away from Inglewood, CA lived the love of Antonio Moreno's life. Not that far, but a million miles away if you don't own a car. And, guess what? Loverboy didn't own a car.

So, using a device that starts Camrys and Sentras of a certain age (due to the fact that people like Matt-man sit on THE COUCH we will not divulge the nature of this device to save them from embarrassment and arrest), our boy Antonio would steal a car in Inglewood and drive to Santa Barbara. When he was done with his visit, he would steal another car and drive it back to Inglewood.

Our Don Juan was caught in one of the cars on the way back after his rendevous.

Well at least it wasn't ON the way to meet her - he was smiling when he was arrested!


Guess they are expecting a lot of visitors...

The poor Beckhams. After months of looking for a new home in Los Angeles, David and Vicky have had to finally settle on a place.
7 Bedrooms
Tennis Court
Home Cinema
Guest Apartment
6 Fountains on the grounds

All that, for the low low price of $28 Million

A veritable Camelot... A castle, you might say...

Really hope this new gig works out for him so they don't have to sell soon...

Do you know how bad the housing market is right now?????

    Antonio could have at least called me and let me know.

  9. Schmoop Says:
  10. V-Man, since it was my house that the Beckham's bought I think it is safe to say that your implication of me being a car thief is off the mark. Cheers...

  11. Angell Says:
  12. Well, Scotty's finally at rest in the proper way. God speed.

    LOL @ the Beckhams. He's playing in Toronto when I'm in Florida - thank GOD. It's going to be a zoo there....

    Antonio - hot Italian blood running through him - that'll keep him warm in the holding cell.
