less meta than just media reporting

Someone should liveblog the liveblogs. It's not going to be me, because I'm too lazy, but someone take this idea and run with it! (unless it's already been done, in which case, hey, what a good idea!)

Alison, I need you to do a teeny-tiny favor for me...

Brooklyn's Prospect Park Zoo just got a rare Red Panda last week. His name is Mao Mi, and he's SO CUTE!! I posted a picture of him on my Activity Pit page a few days ago.

I need you to go to the zoo after closing some night this week, grab Mao Mi, put him in a box and get him on the next bus up here. Punch a few holes in the box and throw in some bamboo so he'll have something to munch on.

Don't get caught! There are severe penalties for Pandanapping.

Oh, I came in here to talk about the Oscars but walked in on a pandanapping plot. I'd be happy to help. Parole's over. I'm can leave the state now. The ankle bracelet came off yesterday.

AS for the Awards, the only movie I saw that has much of a chance for anything was No Country for Old Men. Walken was robbed for Balls Of Fury. It was a travesty.
I was shocked and apalled!
I even got that in again.

Sorry to be posting again so quick. I told ya about the typos. Missed a letter and didn't spell appalled right. Just got my email and saw that. Oops.

I don't know anything about liveblogs but a date brought me dinner and a movie to watch tonight. The movie was "License to Wed" and it was so funny! However, during the movie, I came up with another brilliant idea! I'm going to sleep on it and share it tomorrow!

Oh, FYI, that black and white photo of you is really good! Do you scotch tape it to the treadmill panel while your exercising? I'm just curious!

Speaking of off the wall ideas. I had one hit me last night. Keep in mind I have a wild imagination, but I embrace that aspect of myself. Anyhoo, I guess before I say this, there is a good chance this is already being done, and if so, then I look ridiculous, and I don't care about that either. I'm not a "chat room" guy, and let me add, I don't think their is anything wrong with it, it's just not my cup of tea. YES, I'm getting to the point. I think it would be a neat idea if somehow you could make some sort of imaging thing where you could display "non-verbal" communication. Weird huh? But think about it, On myspace you can display certain moods, for example, mine is stuck on accomplished. Not that I always feel that way, I'm just too lazy and uncaring to change it. I guess an example could be something like. "I'm looking down and to the left while having a devilish grin on my face." See where I'm going with this? If this could somehow be illustrated, in my mind at least, it would be like a new internet break-through.

P.S. I still got the "bug", and I'm in the middle of my 2 day self-preservation hiatus, but I expect to be in full force again tomorrow. I couldn't help it. I kinda miss you guys!!! Aww isn't that sweet?

P.S.S. To my co-blogger Pow. No need to apologize about anything. We have a relaxed atmosphere here at Alison's blog. So come on in, the water if fine!!

Ha! See? I told you, I said "water if fine". My mind was racing at the time. Yes, "IT'S GOT A HEMI"
Toodledoo!!!

It just hit me. That's what they make web cams for. I just stifled my own creative juices.

Note to self: Don't make that mistake ever again!

Response to Note to self: Of course!

Thanks Michael. I've actually been reading the blog for a long time. And used to comment with old sitcom character names once in a while or initials. I figured why not jump in again. Take care of that bug.
And the Oscars, what do ya know. I pick one movie to see that has a shot, it wins 4 awards. I should have watched the show.

According to news reports this morning, Mao Mi is "missing" from his enclosure at Prospect Park Zoo. Well done, Alison. Very clever too - you made it look as though he escaped on his own.

I will await arrival of your package at the bus station later tonight. Tomorrow afternoon in your mailbox you'll find a certified check as payment in full.

I may have another assignment for you soon. I hope you don't have an unnatural fear of Burmese Pythons.

*streeeeetch*....It's mornings like this I wish I was a coffee drinker. Even in my half-sedated state, I can muster up excitement due to it being Alison on Red Eye tonight/tomorrow Eve. I'm gonna go watch an episode of Diff'rent Strokes (The place where Alison's soul was in the making.) My bug is starting to subside. Just more congestion than anything. That I can deal with. Well, off to rest-up. Alison, have a fantastic show. More importantly, have fun.

P.S. It actually took me a whole 5 minutes to write this comment. My HEMI is idiling.

What's the difference between four hundred twenty & 69?

Of course that is rhetorical.
