"Star Jones Reynolds says in a new interview that her dramatic weight-loss was due to gastric-bypass surgery, and that she dodged questions about it for years because she was 'scared of what people might think of me.' "
Well, naturally, we continue to think you're an a-hole.

I posted recently about the sad closing this year of Jade Mountain Restaurant which opened on Second Avenue in 1931. This weekend the family had a Jade Mountain tag sale to sell the joint's contents, as they've rented the space to another tenant. I spotted the sale on my way downtown last night, and this afternoon I returned to purchase a little Jade Mountain history for myself: 4 Buffalo China small oval dinner plates and 8 bowls (4 small and 4 large), a few matchbooks and a menu. In my chat with Steve, the owner's grandson, I learned the reassuring news that the neon will not be destroyed. He's already gotten a few offers for the large JADE MOUNTAIN; if he doesn't sell it, he says he'll donate it to a neon museum in Colorado. Thankfully, Steve's keeping the CHOW MEIN sign for himself; Grandpapa Chan can rest peacefully knowing that.

PS: Throw that incomplete set of dictionaries from the 1930's away, folks: Two Can Anne is your go-to source of information about absolutely anything. Don't forget that I know a lot of crap.

"A woman may very well form a friendship with a man, but for this to endure, it must be assisted by a little physical antipathy."
Ain't that the truth.

The Hasidic woman in the open stall next to me had more pit hair than my ex-boyfriend. I'm all for au natural and whatnot, but if you're gonna go Tarzan under the arms, why bother with the freakin' wig on the dome piece? Bliccky bliccky doo doo. Aye, 'tis depressing.
"...Met a 35 year old Australian man in the military who drove us to Prague, Poland (on accident), Slovakia (for lunch), and then Austria. We took a train to Venice to meet up with a fashion designer, slept in the train station and headed into the Italian Alps with our friend Massimo. We worked in the Parajumper Clothing factory, drove tractors, jumped into rivers, and ate Italian food for one week in the mountain town of Vas. We still don't know how that worked out so well. We then trained it to Rome where we would stay three days with the ex-love-of-my-life-turned-lesbian who lit my hand on fire with a shot of 190 proof liquor. I lost a wallet and a wristwatch in Bangkok, my cellphone in Cambodia, and my video camera was left on a train in Padova, Italy. I do however still have my passport...
Which brings us to a small town in the Netherlands...?
Smith is flying home on Monday the 23rd back to Boston. I on the other hand have no more money, hence the reason for this posting.
I am auctioning off 1 week of labor to anyone in the Continental United States in exchange for a ticket home from England between August 1st and 7th 2007.
The bidding is simple, go online ie... skyscanner.com, expedia.com, statravel.com, jetblue.com and figure the cost of a one way ticket from anywhere in England to the destination of your choice, and bid that amount. Look for budget airlines, and ask about deals for 20 year old students. (I'm a 20 year old student)..."
No more complaining about never having a date to anything, people. Buy this dude.

For you young folks, here's a clip from the late 60's of Porter with Dolly singing "Move it on Home" on his show The Wagon House.
Oh, and here are the White Stripes for you old folks:
I say just once.
Say it any more than one time, and the other person says to themselves, "Oh, that must be his phrase! Lame..." Then they'll involuntarily keep a running tally in their head, completely ignorning everything you're talking about, so consumed with when they'll hear the next "No doubt about it" from you, the "No doubt about it" Guy.
Oneida County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested a suspect in Monday’s armed robbery of a gas station in Rome.
Jaquelyn R. Colmey, 23, of 315 ½ N. Charles St., Rome, faces a felony robbery charge related to the 10:30 p.m. robbery at the Optima gas station in the Wal-Mart shopping center on Rome-Taberg Road, deputies said.
Investigators released images of the suspect taken from the store’s video surveillance tape. The sheriff’s office received several calls from the public, which helped them identify the suspect, deputies said.
Colmey was arraigned in Rome City Court and lodged at the Oneida County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail, deputies said.
