How a film can win for Best Picture and nothing else?  Question

Off the top of my head, I figure it was something like the movies we here at BMDO enjoy: sure the (insert category for judging here) wasn't the best - but overall it was just a lot of fun to watch.

Actually I'm okay with that.  It's the sweeping every category that annoys me, especially when it's a Weinstein Company-produced, obvious-obvious-award-bait flick.

I know that feeling!  You start getting twitchy, headaches, mood swings. Then it gets bad. That's when you start hanging around coffee shops and libraries for the free wifi.

People with a small bit of authority who treat us regular folks like we're beneath them. Last Thursday I discovered some putz had shoved an object into our mailbox keyhole so my key wouldn't go in. Well,we immediatly contacted both our apartment maintenance man and the post office. Both said they'd get right on it. By Monday nothing had been done so Alan called to talk to the supervisor at the post office. They finally came by to change the lock and said we could come by the post office today and get the key. I went in  and explained the situation but the post master was changing a light bulb and I'd have to wait til he was finished. As he was about to hand me the key he asked me had I broken my own key off in there and I told him that I didn't,that someone else had done something. He then ordered me to bring them my key before I could have the new one and turned his back to me. I dug it out of my purse and gave it to him and he rather indifferently gave me the new one.
I maybe not be some Mayberry BFE local big shot but I deserve good service,too.

What is wrong with some of those people?

Trying to find Fleet Farm in the phone book.  It's not in the white pages.  Look under hardware in the yellow pages.  Nope.  Look under farm - I mean it's right in the freakin' name of the place - nope.  Fleet?  No category for fleet.

Ah f*** I guess I'll just drive down there and see if they're open.   Lookingup

Edit:  They were open, the cat litter was on sale, and "The Tide Is High" by Blondie was playing in the store.   Thumbup

I guess if I would have looked for "Mills Fleet Farm" in phone book I might have had better luck.  Details details...

The fact that my governor, Jindal s**t, is planning on getting rid of income tax, but putting a 30% tax increase on sales tax. Now I keep saying that I live in New Orleans, and the majority of New Orleans income comes from tourism- now who in their right mind would pay $100 something per night in a hotel here? Jindal hates New Orleans, that's what I see.

Actually, $100 a night is about the average in most large cities, except in the real fleabags.  I see it as an attempt to shift some of the tax burden from residents to tourists.
