At least I don't have the image of Geena Davis in a bra in my head.

I know that I'm not the only person who gets random songs stuck in her head, but am I the only one who gets really, really stupid random songs in her head? And I'm not talking, like, "Careless Whisper" by George Michael or "(I Just) Died in Your Arms Tonight" by Cutting Crew. I'm talking like "The Dipsey Doodle Dragon" from my first grade musical and the currently selection running a loop in my brain--that ridiculous song that some bitch makes up in the movie A League of Their Own. You know:
We are the members of
The All-American League
We Come from cities...near and far
We've got Can-adians (woo!), Irish ones and Swedes
We're all for one!
We're one for all!
We're all American!

And yes, I just wrote that down from memory. I can do the second verse, too:
Here we stand, our heads so proudly high
Our motto: do or die
We're not the kind to use or need an alibi

"to use or need an alibi?" what kind of lyric is that? Yet somehow, it's stuck in my head, which I guess is representative of that movie in general. You never want to watch it. You certainly don't own it on DVD. But when it's on the CW Sunday afternoon movie and you're still in your PJs, you will totally sit there and watch the entire fucking thing.

Better than an apple

Yesterday one of my students brought me an index card she had found in a used book that she purchased. In very thin writing it said:
I love you

I care about you

I hear what you're saying

I can't take it anymore

Site traffic, here we come!

I’ve noticed that visits to my extremely distinguished and deservedly famous site have dropped off lately. Is it because I never post? Because people finally realized what a hack I am? Because my best friend changed her homepage? No, it’s because I used to get 6 or 7 hits a day from people doing a google image search on Alex Trebek and coming up with this post. On the search, this photo of Alex would show up and the line “Alex Trebek and Pat Sajack making out.” And even though I spelled Sajack wrong, 6 or 7 people a day would hope that they’d see what google image had promised them. Unfortunately, that post was so long ago that I’m no longer getting the gameshow-loving pervs, so I’ve decided to post some more images and headlines in hopes that I get some weridos to my site.

Ted Danson doing nude yoga

Everyone's been making such a fuss about Danny DeVito's drunken confession on the View about banging Rhea Pearlman in the Lincoln bedroom. But am I the only one who, for some reason, finds Ted Danson and Mary Steenbergen grosser? I think it's because I see her kind of like an aunt, ever since she played Doc Brown's awkward love interest in BttFPIII.

HSN phenom Esteban fighting Zorro

In this scenario, I like to envision a duel where Zorro stabs Esteban, but then they have a strum-off, and Esteban is victorious even though he's bleeding from a chest wound.

Alex Trebek and Pat Sajak making out...again!

Treat Williams petting ALF

I made this photo myself using my very advanced Photoshop skills. A girl can dream, can't she?
