Shane come home!

The only thing that was extremely disappointing about today’s meet up (besides the obvious absence of the self professed king of blogs, TKC, the real King of the bloggers is of course XO, even though D-Rules probably thinks he deserves the job more) was that Shane was not there. Shane, just have Chimpo explain to you what the title of the post means.

Today’s meet up was fantabulous and worthy of the made up word. Chimpo totally busted it with my wife and made it appear like we do not watch UFC on Saturdays but rather look for internet videos. So now I am banned from hanging out with Chimpo… well not really, I still have beer at his house that I need to drink.

Actually, I was also very sad that Meesha was not there; I wanted to congratulate him on his recent posts because they have been awesome. I did get to meet Faith who BTW looks NOTHING like her picture. She even accused me of not looking like my little avatar! As IF! I have not changed one bit since I was a blonde little devil… * When the text is blue (most of my a tags have had link as blue) or underlined it means there is a link people… click it, go ahead… I think Faith is new to the interwebs. ;) I mean, look at this picture, I have not changed one bit.

Batman

I was very excited to finally meet that Nuclear Buffalo who I forgot if he was actually nuclear because I was kind of sitting right next to him and had no Geiger counter with me. He was just as good natured and fun as I had imagined him.

I then met one of my arch nemesis on the blogsphere… that 3 AM dude (Who really does not look anything like his avatar) … after a long stare down and a bad joke of me trying to call him EMO we put down the weapons and agreed to a truce. He brought in the door prices! Yeah, I got a bottle opener as a key chain again. He is actually going to watch Jericho even though Chimpo was trying to tell him the show sucked.

I feel like telling more, but Spyder would probably come and tell me that if people want to know how much fun it is to hang out with these bunch of crazies they just need to show up. I kind of agree… I mean, where can you hang out with Sponge Bob’s Secret Admirer who is convinced that some day she will get Chimpo and I not just to sing Karaoke but sing a song together.

I am glad that I might get to see Eric, Michelle, Dan, Spyder, Kanga and Alicia this Saturday :) because the Kansas City Bloggers are a fun bunch of people to hang out with.

And I am sorry for whoever is a regular at that place but the food kind of sucked.

Heath Ledger Dies at 28

Actor Heath Ledger was found dead today in his apartment in NYC and it seems to have been drug related. He had recently split from Michelle Williams. He plays the Joker in the upcoming Batman Movie.

Daniel just told me about this happening and it made me feel really sad. I don’t remember being this sad when Chris Farley died under also the suspicion of drug overdose. I was living in Chicago at the time and felt almost detached from the whole thing. It was not until the whole documentary about his life came out that I felt a little more connected to the story.

I first remember Ledger from 10 things I hate about you where he played kind of a loner that steals the hearth of the chick that wants nothing to do with boys because of a broken heart. The Movie was a great mixture of a love story and a teen movie without making you want to puke.

Ledger moved on to being in the Patriot which I thought was a good role, and then did the quirky A knights tale which was ok. I had not seen another one of his movies and I am not interested on broke back mountain, but I was very excited to see him as the Joker in the previews for the new movie.

I am sad that his life ended so short because I found him to be a good actor. I am sad for his little daughter that will grow up without knowing a father. I am also sad to lose another great actor to drugs, but it seems like it is not an uncommon thing. Rest in Peace.
