World Records

When you were a kid did you ever go searching through the Guinness Book of World Records and go looking for an easy record that you thought you could break?

longest time on a pogo stick...
biggest rubber band collection...
heaviest twins...

I know I did!
Well I ran into a world record that I think is worth sharing.

Wikipedia Entry:
Longest Attack of Hiccups.
Charles Osborne (1894 – May 1, 1991) hiccupped continuously for 68 years (1922-1990).

Osborne, from Anthon, Iowa, U.S., was entered in Guinness World Records as the man with the Longest Attack of Hiccups. The hiccups started in 1922 at a rate of 40 times per minute, slowing to 20 hiccups per minute and eventually stopping on June 5, 1990, a total of 68 years. His condition also led him to be a guest on Ripley's Believe It or Not! in 1936, ABC's That's Incredible! in 1980, The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1983 , and to be featured as a question in the board game Trivial Pursuit.

Osborne began hiccuping in 1922, while slaughtering a hog. Despite his condition, Osborne was able to lead a normal life, and was even married two times.

Osborne died of complications from ulcers at Marian Health Center in Sioux City, Iowa on May 1, 1991 and he was buried in Oak Hill Cemetery in Anthon, Iowa three days later.

It has been estimated that Osborne hiccupped 430 million times over the 68 year period.

Can you imagine waking up one morning and not having them after 68 years? Sitting at the breakfast table one morning eating your eggs you wife and you reading the paper.
"Hey honey... somethings different... are these curtains new?"

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In May I bought porn for _anvil_ (-10 points). In October I ruled Iran as a kind and benevolent dictator (700 points). Last Friday I pulled professor_gaunt's hair (-5 points). Last Tuesday I put gum in thisspacevacant's hair (-12 points). In June I put money in u8yofoot's expired parking meter (14 points).

Overall, I've been nice (687 points). For Christmas I deserve a wedgie!

Sincerely,
mick7742

What the fuck is wrong with people?

As you guys may know, Liz and I split. As if that wasn't bad enough, I am out of money... I have money to get by, but barely. And you know the saying, 'when it rains it pours'.

Yesterday afternoon, in the middle of the day, our house was broken into. The ripped off the screen on the back bedroom window, forced the window open and got in. They walked all over Sky's bed and were everywhere in the house. Cabinet doors were open, everything looked like it had been gone through, but they definitely knew what was worth the most and was the easiest to carry.
Luckily they didn't damage anything, but they took enough to make my life suck really bad right now.

The list:

Sky's stuff:
Digital Camera
$100

My stuff:
Laptop
PSP
iPod Nano
Two digital cameras
my wedding ring

About $1500 worth of my stuff and $250 worth of Sky's stuff.

Oh and they took six packs of cigarette's out of a carton we had. Fuckers.

The cop said we were the sixth house in the neighborhood that day. A few fingerprints were lifted, but they could tell from the window they entered the house through after fingerprinting that they were wearing gloves. The fingerprints were probably mine or Sky's.

What the fuck is wrong with people?

Auditions

This weekend was crazy long...

You know it sounds tough to cast 60 people in a show. But guess what, it is harder that that. It was easier two years ago when I did this. This year there was a lot of tough choices and I wanted to really stick to a 60 person cast. I figure that 4-5 people drop out every year, so I cast 64 knowing that we will be losing people. I made a few casting decisions that some people are not going to be happy with and I am jut going to have to deal with that. Luckily enough I have a great team that supports all the decisions that were made.

I am so mentally exhausted right now.

For those of you waiting to see who got cast where, I will have it posted by tomorrow night. And I will have dirty emails sent to me about two hours after I post the list, thats my prediction!

FAY... you bitch

Sooooo tired of the rain...
Getting old already and the forecast calls for rain for the next five days...

This damn storm better not eff with my auditions this weekend...
