The King Prawn
I've been complimented (more than once) on how organized my groceries were on the conveyer and how easy it made the bagging. Like I said, control freak...maybe with a touch of OCD. · Dec 2 at 10:42am
So you're the one!
I WISH IKEA had self-checkout!!!
When I go to IKEA, it's usually to get a single light-bulb or picture frame. I hate having to wait in line behind people who are furnishing an entire room. · Dec 2 at 8:26am
Solution: Buy more stuff and tick off the guy behind you. You're welcome.
My immediate thought was either Deanna Durbin or Joan Fontaine. Since the USPS is deliberately targeting a fairly young demographic with this thing, you'll get a pop icon who is somewhat politically active, for instance, Lady Gaga. Or (shudder) Justin Bieber.
According to the USPS, make your suggestions at http://www.facebook.com/USPSStamps or http://twitter.com/#!/uspsstamps
Casey: Good example here: Apparently someone I never heard of was married to someone else I never heard of whose star was rising and her success put a strain on their young marriage.
A shame really. · Sep 19 at 10:08am
That sounds like the plot of A Star Is Born.
I agree. When our guy (or gal) reaches across the aisle, I want it to be with a closed fist. · Aug 26 at 12:18pm
A closed fist and ample force (so as not to be confused with a fist bump).
Someone could go into business selling ice cold beverages to that crowd of thousands in hot 'lanta.
Ha! Anderson Cooper pretends to talk on the phone to avoid drunk fans.
Then there were the types who had to be FIRST, who trampled the ending or jumped up and applauded and whooped at the false ending, only to have to sit down in embarrassment. · Aug 17 at 5:26am

I like the Grand Soiree idea. We could start a RicoCon...like Comic-Con for conservative nerds. · Aug 17 at 1:13pm
I enjoy the name and the Charlie's Angels poses.
You're not alone in having withdrawal symptoms.
Waynester: I wouldn't be so quick to assume that Bigelow will distort the story so as to help Obama. She and her screenwriter could have easily done so with The Hurt Locker (that is, to criticize Bush's Iraq war policy) but did not. She may take liberties with the story for dramatic effect, i.e., artistic license (as she did with the previous film) but I think she has too much integrity to do so for mere politics. Also, with the country souring on Obama it would not do much for the bottom line, either. · Aug 10 at 1:36pm

Perhaps not. However, the release date of the movie -regardless of content- could help Obama's campaign by reminding voters of a significant incident in which the sitting President did something right.
If nothing else, pundits will have a current pop culture reference to tie in with the 2012 campaign. It's not dissimilar to the Colbert and Stewart faux rallies before the 2010 election.
Then again, perhaps a release date close to election was a condition of the White House's cooperation with the filmmakers.
I've never heard of this show or the actress, but a quick google search of her very public drug career stretches far into the past. I was reading the same story, basically, with different dates. How is she not locked up?
Ah! Diane, you beat me posting this story by about 30 minutes.
About that "October Surprise" movie, Rep. Peter T. King (NY, R) has asked the Defense Department and the CIA for an investigation into the Oval office's cooperation with Hollywood on this incident. King is concerned about “ongoing leaks of classified information regarding sensitive military operations.”
He's sticking it to Obama. I say go for it.
