UPDATE: Finally got in touch with the Media Contact for SURFACE on NBC-TV. To my astonishment, Kahlil Olmstead does not work for SURFACE any longer as he was promoted to a new position. The new contact for SURFACE is Christine Chan. Christine promised to email me as soon as she gets the information regarding the fiasco with SURFACE. And you wonder why you hadn't heard anything from Khalil Olmstead!
Xian Nuts On Loose: Of course what do you expect out of this?
Abuse of Vicodin Can ...: A friend, Perlis, emailed me to tell me that the abuse of codine can lead people to lose their hearing. This is new to me. Hat tip to Perlis for the information!
A Message From Julie "Jules" Dalbom: Jules wanted to let you guys know that she is now at home and will wear the knee brace and continue to have the rehabilitation as an outpatient. No more emails to that Spalding Rehabilitation, please. You may get in touch with her if she provides her email address when she signed on the blogsite eventually.
Absolutely Pathetic! Yesterday at the lunchtime, I went to Silent Lunch with my parents. Of course, to observe how the hearing people who are learning ASL, trying their best to interact with Deaf elders. There was a group of ASL students from Virginia Governor's School at The Shops at Willow Lawn's Food Court sitting with my parents. My uncle and aunt was in attendance as well as about 10 Deaf senior citizens.
Virginia Governor's School is a program aimed to engage 400 gifted students selected from all over the state. In other words, they are intelligent. Or I thought it to be.
Suddenly, there was a commotion. One ASL teacher at that school wondered what the state capital of Oregon is. Some said, "Portland" in fingerspelling since the usage of voice is banned. One guy said, "No, no! It is Eugene!"
I flinched. Worst of all, the ASL teacher does not know which town is. The students and Deaf senior citizens engaged in a lively discussion of which Portland or Eugene is the state capital of Oregon.
I have had enough of these idiot ramblings. I approached the ASL teacher and said, "It is Salem, not Portland or Eugene!" She gave me the look of doubt -- I gave her the dead-eye stare, "I went to Youth Leadership Camp in Stayton, Oregon for a month and washed my clothes in Salem three or four times in a month -- I know what I'm talking about! It is Salem!"
If that is the best thing the gifted students has for us, our country is in trouble for a long time.
Viagra Not Working! I complimented one deaf senior citizen at Silent Lunch that he looked good for his age after he told me that he is 80 years old. I flinched, winced and cringed when he went on to describe that his penis is ... impotent. He repeatedly pointed to his groin area, making me look down twice or thrice. I said, "Why not Viagra?"
He snapped back, "I ASKED MY DOCTOR -- HE SAID NO BECAUSE ME HAVE HEART CONDITION -- FOR SURE, KNOCK ME DEAD!"
I chuckled as he said, "NO WORRY ABOUT IT, WIFE OK WITH IT -- ME FINISH TOO MANY WOMEN IN 80 YEARS! ENOUGH, PENIS NEEDS REST!"
Okay, you're stud. But too much information, really.
Miami Hurricanes Scandal I: In Miami, it was reported that 7 football players made a 9-minute long of rap song filled with obscene words and it talked about having the gangbang fuck sessions -- multiple men with individual woman, that is. A blogger who is also the student at UM posted the song on its website before it was picked up by ESPN.com. What a drama. Now the UM students are turning on Kyle, the blogger of Miamity.com. Like a true blogger, Kyle exposed the dark side of college football.
On second thoughts, it is OK for McWeenie to talk about Brown University which permitted the gay student group to organize a party that eventually had many intoxicated students coming to the party (the party itself was non-alcoholic, but students drank prior to the arrival, just like Gallaudet's Rock Festival for freshmen, that is!). McWeenie decried about it but chose not to talk about the infamous tailgating parties at many college campuses where people drank and partied before going to the football games. What a hypocrite fool.
UM Hurricanes Scandal II: This is interesting but not surprising coming from Miami, Florida. Ferne Labati, the Head Coach of UM Hurricanes Women's Basketball team was fired last spring after posting its first losing season in many years, 13-16. She is 60. And the school replaced her with young woman. It turned out that the Athletic Department also dismissed interviewing anyone else who is above 44 years old. Ferne is 60.
