The Day After

I AM ALIVE! I fared pretty well after last night. I am happy to report that I am NOT hung over. I am a little tired but I was able to clean up some of the stuff left from last night. The half full drink cups didn’t affect me. Jackie is out picking up Tori so I cleaned a little, vacuumed, and decided to get the blog out of the way for today since I think I will be going to bed VERY early tonight.

It was a successful party and I am so glad that so many were able to make it out and have fun. Too bad is was still humid and mosquito filled so we couldn’t hang outside but that’s ok. Next year we will have it earlier in the summer again when it is nicer out.

I still have some cleaning to do today but I think that … wow … whoa … why am I feeling dizz … everything is blurry …

Hello earth dwellers. Herman here. It seems my hairless Wampa engaged in a ritual celebration last night called a “fiesta”. Based on the video communications device I am forced to watch all day, I thought a fiesta was a mode of transportation for the females of this planet. (which by the way, there are far too many females in this galaxy. Before I was abandoned here I had only known of 2 others.)

I will have to admit that it seemed that it was a good time. I did partake a little myself and had what is I believe called, an upsidedown margarita.


Until the next time I deem you worthy of my communicae … Don’t step in Bantha fodder.

They Got Busy Livin’, Now They’re Getting Busy Dyin’

It’s the beginning of the month. What does that mean? It mean’s mortgage payments are due, heartworm and flea/tick treatments for the dog, time to clean out the refrigerator and time to update the celebrity death watch list. Although Feb was a short month, it seems that it was a big month for celebrity deaths. Again, I have not included everyone that died in February. One of these days however, I AM going to include all of the Tongan philosophers that die in a given month. Below is the latest list of celebrities who have left us this month. It should be noted that while no one has yet to match a dead celebrity, we have had a family guess come close. Marie Osmond was picked at the beginning of the year. It was a death in the family, which is still pretty hard to pick.

Feb Celeb Deaths

Frances Reid – 95 – Days of our Lives – Feb 3

Richard Delvy – 67 – Drummer The Bel-Airs – Feb 6

Capt. Phil Harris – 53 – Deadliest Catch – Feb 9

Walter Morrison – 90 – Frisbee inventor – Feb 9

Alexander McQueen – 40 – Fashion Designer – Feb 11

Doug Fieger – 57 – Lead Singer “The Knack” – Feb 14

Ronald Howes – 83 – Inventor of the Easy Bake Oven – Feb 16

Alexander Haig – 85 – Politician – Feb 20

Andrew Koenig – 41 – Boner on Growing Pains – Feb 25ish

Michael Blosil – 18 – Marie Osmond’s son – Feb 26

Tom “T-Bone” Wolk – 58 – Bassist for Hall & Oats – Feb 27

Speaking of dead celebrities, I just want to wish a happy birthday to Harry Caray today. I wish I could have been there for the toast. Here is to a Bud Man and a Cub Fan.

On another note, not really dead celebrity news, but more on the “Where Are They Now” front. Have you ever wondered what happened to that Stormtrooper from Star Wars? Well wonder no more. Through extensive research on my part (actually it was just reading an email) Norman has been found and has started a blog of his own. I have added the link in my blogroll as well. Norman and his own clone army will be taking over the known universe very soon, and I am hoping to help. Yes, I am hoping to be no better than a scruffy nerf herder. You can see what Norman has been up to courtesy of my buddy Kevin. I think Kevin is Norman’s new PR guy or something. Hopefully soon, I will be representing my own clone to spread Norman’s message throughout, at least, the far northwest suburbs. Long live the Clones!!!

For now that is all. Be sure to tune in this week for what I think the Oscar picks should be. Until next time remember … As of now, I am in control here in the White House.
