This would be funny

You know how there's the Bowl? I like to say that if I ever get super rich, I'll start a company with a really silly name and buy a sporting event. Bowl, anyone?

Does drama ever end? Seriously - I'm in my mid-twenties and still face drama in some friendships. Most are okay and without major issues, but one still goes nuts every so often, and not always with me involved - I just hear about it.

So, does it ever end? Does anyone have an opinion on this?

Bad textbook seller

I tried to buy a textbook for class on from an Amazon seller. After emailing the seller a week or so after buying the book, I got an email issuing me a refund. When I inquired further, I was told that the seller didn't actually have the book in stock.

This is bad because:
I need the book now, since class has already started.
I am not sure if this seller would have refunded my money if I didn't ask about the book.

I am glad I emailed the seller, because if I hadn't, I could have ended up just waiting for the book and never receiving it.

I ended up having to buy a new book at almost twice the cost, but at least I was able to get expedited shipping, so it should arrive shortly and I can do most of my work for class.

Dear neighbor,

If you are going to hit a car and drive off, it's a bad idea to hit the car of the people who live next door to you. And, when they confront you, deny it when you have been driving drunk. Then, ignore the cops.

The cop said let it be as her car had more damage than ours, and it's not worth filing a report.

Megan Hauserman vs. Sharon Osbourne

Did anyone see the Rock of Love Charm School reunion? How awesome was it when Sharon Osbourne dumped her juice on Megan Hauserman? Megan seriously deserved it. It drives me nuts that Megan can be so openly catty, vicious and manipulative. And how is she rewarded? With her own reality TV show. Rumor has it that she'll be getting her own show - Trophy Wife. (Like she said her goal was - to become a trophy wife.) One thing is for sure - this girl knows how to play the reality TV game. She did Playboy, was on Blind Date, was on Beauty and the Geek (and won!), and did a lot on VH1: Rock of Love, I Love Money and Charm School. And now VH1 will be giving her another show all to herself. Seriously, though, why would millionaire men (because that's what you have to be) go on reality tv to date this girl? She hurt lots of other people - what's stopping her from hurting all of these guys?

What is giving the villain more fame teaching us? That being like Megan should be rewarded with fame and fortune? She was drunk on the Rock of Love Charm School reunion! Why is she getting fame and fortune for this?

Props to Sharon Osbourne for her actions!

Man's last lotto ticket wins $10 Million for his widow

On the day that Donald Peters died, he unknowingly provided financial security for his wife of 59 years and their family. Peters bought two Connecticut Lottery tickets at a local 7-Eleven store on Nov. 1 as part of a 20-year tradition he shared with his wife Charlotte. Later that day, the 79-year-old retired hat factory worker passed away.

I am not one for efficiency haircuts. By efficiency haircuts, I mean quick, five minute haircuts like at SuperCuts. As far back as I can remember, I've always gone to a hair salon, where your hair gets washed, cut and dried. Today, I needed a quick trim because I'm trying to keep my hair healthy. I went to SuperCuts, where I had the shortest haircut ever. I sat down, the woman asked me what I wanted (a trim and my bangs fixed), and in five minutes or less, she had sprayed my hair with water, cut it and "dried" it with a hair dryer for about 20 seconds.
I can't say that it looks bad, because the cut is probably about the same as it would have been at a more upscale salon, but the whole concept of quick, efficiency haircutting is so strange to me. And if you take the price to time ratio into account, I paid about $3 a minute for this cut (plus tip) vs. the 50 cents or so I normally pay per minute (at a higher cost, but also a much longer length of time). Will I be going back to SuperCuts? Not likely. However, this is probably the first time I've spent less than an hour in a salon in years.
