Whisker Wars

The Ultimate Facial Face-Off.

Catchy ain't it? THIS is what our Fall TV line-up looks like. If you have no idea what I am talking about please check out the preview below before reading further.

OK, now I like a little 5 o' clock shadow but da-yum. I understand people's right to do as they please but please, someone explain this lifestyle choice to me. Anyone? No takers?

Aha... thought so.

I can not wait until this little gem starts & debuts onto the screen of my very large HD television so I can sit back & watch such a marvelous spectacle.

Who's with me? -JLS

Watch "Whisker Wars" this coming Friday August 5th @ 11pm EST on IFC.

Daily Chuckle

As many of you know, or may not know, I have an unnatural obsession with LOL Cats. They make me smile and cringe with their cuteness and sheer ability to make me laugh and of course, chuckle. This one below is no exception. I may be one of the few losers that still finds them cute and funny but I say to those who judge: "So's your mother" (hand gesture included). 

Enjoy kids.

P.S. Shout out to those in BOTSWANA & RUSSIA! Much love from the U.S. of A.

Daily Chuckle : Dear Parents,

A Wednesday Morn Debacle

      So today as I was going about my daily routine, I encountered this person who debated me the pronunciation of a certain word.

     Now, let me clear something up: I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed but hot-damn I've got somethings going on, one of them being grammar, pronunciation and a heck of a vocabulary.

     With that being said, on with my story! So this... neanderthal... is debating the pronunciation of a word with me. Now, I live in the Rio Grande Valley and pronunciation isn't at the top of anyone's list of important anything down here so it's pretty safe to say the majority of the people don't speak English or Spanish correctly. I have a tendency to correct people, friends or foes, when they say something incorrectly not just to spite or embarrass them (at least not all the time) but because it's what I do. My mother does it to me all the time and I know she does it for my own good. I do it out of a reflex & it's gotten me in trouble before.

     This whole debacle got me to think how people don't care to speak correctly; and it's something that society, at least around here, seems to be OK with! Down here, no one corrects you when you say

- "Oiga sir, pa donde estan los bathrooms o estan outback por atras; ahi de que por behind?"

The response?

-"Nombre si estan ahi por atras del building. Nomas make sure que le hagas lock a la door porque no cierra asi all the way."

I'm sorry but that? Is not the way to talk. I got me sort of sad no, disappointed, that that it "normal" behavior. I for one refuse to fall into this vicious cycle of not-caring. In my book, you have two presentation cards.

1) Your appearance because no matter how many people say "looks don't matter" & "looks aren't important" know that you get judged based on how you look and I'm not talking fashion but clean, presentable and put together. It reflects how good or bad you take care of yourself and your body,

2) Your ability to successfully or unsuccessfully put together a cohesive thought. Your mind is the most important tool you can use everyday.

If you don't expand and grow your mind and actually care what comes out of your mouth then what are we doing?
