Final Night of Dying like a Stud...
Final night of lame quizzes:

Your Brain is 46.67% Female, 53.33% Male
Your brain is a healthy mix of male and female
You are both sensitive and savvy
Rational and reasonable, you tend to keep level headed
But you also tend to wear your heart on your sleeve

You Are 50% Normal

(Somewhat Normal)

While some of your behavior is quite normal...
Other things you do are downright strange
You've got a little of your freak going on
But you mostly keep your weirdness to yourself

You Are a Dare Devil

For you, life is one big dare.
And you're all in for any adventure.
Others find you exciting, inspiring, and a bit intimidating.
Your biggest challenge at this point is trying to top yourself!

How Daring Are You?

Your Irish Name Is...

Darragh O'Keefe

And that's enough of that.

TV Host Pat O'Brien Checks Into Alcohol Rehab
Television host Pat O'Brien has entered an alcohol rehab program.

Pat O'Brien
O'Brien anchors the news magazine show "The Insider." He was also a host on "Access Hollywood."In a statement, O'Brien said he's had a problem with alcohol and has now "decided to take action."

It's not known what rehab facility the 57-year-old checked into or when he did it.A spokesman for his show's syndicator said they support his decision to seek treatment and "look forward to welcoming him back on the air at the appropriate time."There's no word on who'll take over hosting duties during O'Brien's absence.

Ok I'm sorry but this story is hilarious. If you've seen Access Hollywood, then you know what a strange character Pat O'Brien is. He has a chronic congestion problem and is waaaay too excited about reporting on the lives of the rich and famous. Jimmy Fallon did a great impersonation of Pat O'Brien on SNL. He would usually end the sketch by saying something like,"I'm Pat O'Brien and I'm going to go drown my sorrows in a bar somewhere," or, "I'm going to kill myself now. I'm Pat O'Brien." Jimmy had no idea how on the money he was.

Thanks Pat, I really needed a good laugh during finals week.
You're in our prayers?

Ay Dios Mio...This is Awkward......
I further justified my affiliation with the Facebook group "Awkward..." which proclaims, "...for anyone who often finds themselves in awkward situations, conversations, or circumstances. This group is also for anyone who believes awkwardness defines their life, or anyone who finds awkward situations entertaining."

Friday after class at around noon I strolled over to lot 6 (beating the parking officer who would've given me yet another ticket for going 10 min over my alloted time..ha) and when I turned on my Jetta, the CD player, one of the only things left standing in my desheveled car, does not turn on. The blinking red and blue lights do not flicker to life to let me know that I will be listening to my burned U2 CD on my way home. If that weren't bad enough, I realized I had to drive home (about a 30 min. drive) in complete silence. So I drove. I hummed a little. I opened my window. I closed my window. Then I thought I should go over to the Good Guys at the Beverly Connection where I had originally bought the CD player.

I park and I go to the customer service desk to ask them if they had my purchase on file (and in turn my warranty) so they could print it out and I could go to the car installation guys in the parking lot to get my CD player fixed. As she was searching she asked when I had bought the CD player. I remembered it was in the Summer of 2002 because it was a graduation gift from my mom. As she's searching, I yawned...and right then, a fruitfly flew into my mouth and down my throat. Right as this happens, the customer representative lady begins to recite the Good Guys policy about warrantys and car stereos. I begin to choke just as she begins to tell me the intricacies of the elaborate Good Guys system. I cough, and I cough, and I cough, and I tear up and, I imagine my face turns red, and the lady's face begins to look more and more disgusted because she must think I have Malaria or the Black Death that I would then pass onto her. I didn't... I swallowed a fruit fly. When she's done with her proclamation, I just nod and belch out a, "Excuse..m... me." She nods, as if acknowledging that I was diseased. "S...sSank you"

I rush to my car to find something to replenish my damaged vocal cords. I find a box of Altoids (always my saving grace) and down about 4. I go over to the car installation garage and the kindly Victor says I can get it fixed out of warranty for $25. Fair enough. I leave my car there and head down to Jamba Juice to receive an antidote to my reddened and sweating face, exhausted by the choking episode I had just survived.

Now if I were not prone to unbelievably awkward situations, I would have arrived at the same result as I am at now: with a repaired CD player. But it would've been through a wholly different (and some might say less exciting) journey, if you will.

For it is not the goal that you reach that matters, but the journey that takes you there.

Besides, how sexily vulnerable must I have looked to the customer service representative of the Good Guys as I regurgitated the deceased insect.

It would've been much cooler if it was still alive though.

Shave it off, one two three, now you can count to three..
I have a love/hate relationship with shaving. I don't know if anyone else is having this problem (besides Camilla Parker Bowles.....baZING) but I just never want to shave. And as I get older, my facial hair grows faster and faster so it's really a necessity for me to shave but dammit I don't want to. Of course despite my apprehensions against shaving, I end up doing it anyway because I look a lot cleaner and better after shaving. But even so, it's a damn chore.

I guess it dates back to my first time shaving. I decided that freshman year of highschool, since I was such a big man, I would shave before going to school. Granted I barely had whiskers, but I wanted to anyway. So I shaved, without much experience at all, on the first day of school, and I ended up with about 12 cuts and an irritated upper lip. So, my trip to school, instead of being a hip young chap who shaves before school, (I don't know how I wanted to pull this off since my dad was dropping me off anyway) I end up walking into school with 12 bloody toilet paper pieces on various spots around my face, which I had forgotten to take off before getting out of the car, and an enflamed upper lip. I realized just before going to class however that I looked like an escaped victim of Hannibal Lecter so I frantically pried off the toilet paper pieces and waltzed into class. By the time I got home, I was fine but it was the experience that morning that created my shaveophobia.

And even when I let my facial hair grow out, to see maybe it might look ok, it grows out as shrubbery would in the spring: in spurts on various parts of my face. (I don't actually know how shrubbery does grow in the spring but it seemed like a proper reference) It's not a sexy Johnny Depp look, it's more of a weird Edward James Olmos look. (Google that name if you must) And it itches like crazy anyhow so I end up biting the bullet and shaving, which only takes about 7 minutes; although I do plan for a "shaving session" all night as if I'm preparing for a trip to Botswana. "Ok I'm going to have to leave at least 40 minutes for the razor to heat up under the hot water. Then I'll apply the shaving cream generously. Then I'll shave for about 18 minutes. Then I'll clean off the shaving cream that's left. Then I'll do some residual cleaning up of missed hairs." All together I calculate about a four hour and 21 min shaving session despite it taking 7 minutes every single time.

So as I plan my shaving ritual for tonight, since I'm due for one, thank yourselves ladies because you only have to poor boiling hot wax upon your legs and rip the hairs out by the root, whilst us guys have to go through this psychological warfare on our own.

By the way, thank you to the people at Schick who make the impeccable Schick Xtreme 3 razor. You have kept me shaving for years and I thank you for your continual support in my struggles.
