Dear People Who Read This Site, “George”, Girl, That Euro, Special C, Dr. Chris, The (Other) O.C., (Get Back) JoJo, and Potential Investors,
I know, it's been a long hiatus. The good news is that I have had many reports from Friends of the Mint Mogul who have purchased Embittermints at Newbury Comics
, including the Hammer, whose early reports were very encouraging. I have also appreciated the upswing in online orders. In particular, I'd like to thank someone with the initials D.M. who forwarded my appeal to customers to a very nice lady who bought mints for herself and her co-workers. And you thought I wouldn't know the initials D.M. Thank you Donna Martin! I sure am glad you graduated!
A lot has happened in the last few weeks. The Olympics, which really aren't the same on American TV (but which "George" got to attend
). Canada is much better at broadcasting the Winter Olympics. But, Canada does produce some interesting dubious characters, like Skating With Celebrities winner Lloyd Eisler. Who knew that an earringed, figure skater could be such a cad -- dumping his pregnant wife for his TV skating partner Kristy Swanson? Has there been more uncomfortable TV than the moments when the judges asked them about how they improved their chemistry? Is there anything more Amy Fisher like than Kristy forwarding one of Lloyd's torrid emails to her to his wife? It's a shame that this show is not likely to return, like Dance Fever, with judges Jamie King, Hammer, and Carmen Electra (which was won by the Atlanta cloggers).
As you know, I am an avid reader of many websites, and a site that I read often has started a challenge to help schools and kids. So, please check out this link which will show you how to Help Public School Kids by Funding by Participating in a DonorsChoose Challenge
. I loved the Ping Pong project. Ping Pong is good times. And I am donating a sleeve of Embittermints, plus shipping and tax, to the contest
, so give, give, give!
I feel like I am obliged to comment on The O.C.
, as it was here at the beginning of the musings
, yet the show is awful these days. I mean, no Luke, no Theresa and miniChino, no job for Kirsten, no songs by the Sandman. It's just awful. And they could have saved it by turning the recent "investigation" into the death of Johnny into a "Where's Johnny" musical episode, featuring more vocal stylings by the Sandman. But, no. At least I still have the Gilmore Girls
Well, that's it for a while. I'll be back in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, buy mints, help kids, and save Everwood
PS: Notorious L.M.C., your mints are on the way. Welcome back to the fold!
PPS: Anyone who got here after reading about the mints from my high school alumni news, it's a long way from Matheletes, no? Not that there was anything wrong with Matheletes.
