Hope you had a great weekend despite the less than favorable weather. Friday I kicked things off with a Weyerbacher Â (great microbrewery from Easton, PA)beer tasting @ Krugels Deli & Beer in WB Twsp. They were Friday's Premium Perk--hope you took advantage of that amazing deal.
Krugel's is like a candy store for big kids!Â This is just a small selection of their 1100 different kinds of beer.
That's me with my bud Bosco who works at our sister station WILK.
Saturday IÂ vegged onÂ the couch for most of the day.Â That's where the birds come in.Â Â I watched a really bad movie onÂ SyFy--"Roadkill".Â This movie was SO BADÂ I couldn't stop watching it.Â The premise?Â A bunch of 20 somethings are touring Ireland in a rented RV.Â Â Gypsies place a curse on them in which a giant bird tries to kill them one-by-one.Â NoÂ surprise this movie had great dialogue!
Chick:Â Will you calm down.
Dude:Â How can I calm down, our best friend was just killed by a giant bird!
Sunday I hit the pavement for theÂ 6th Annual RUN FOR THE RED in Stroudsburg.Â Â The rain finally stopped when it was time to start the race.
Shout out to my running mates, Lisa the Marathon Mom and the rest of the NF Endurance Team.Â Â Good times, great people.Â
It was me! (Rocky) Actually this isn’t a total lie. There was a kid in my High School that DID eat a rat’s foot. We all threw in a buck, and at lunch one day, he did it. I think there was about $20 in the pot.
Sue DID get naked, reluctantly, when we discovered a nude beach in the Caribbean. She took off her bathing suit after she was in the water.
And when Lissa was 13 she got cornered by a guy in church. He threw her in a closet and started making out with her.
Coming back from a pretty amazing weekend. I was among the 3000 runners in the Jersey Shore Relay. Our NF Endurance team had over 60 runners in the race. And it was quite a sight seeing all the neon jerseys! Our Pocono crew ran the Marathon Relay...Seaside Heights to Asbury Park.
We didn't see Snooki or Bruce but we did find a few of their old haunts!
Bruce played here!
Snooki did something fowl here!
Like the beer stand at a concert...the port-a-potty line pre-race.
Temps were in the 40's and the wind along the beach was gusting as high as 40mph.Â Ideal running conditions! :)
Here I am doing what I can to stay warm before my leg of the marathon
Here we go!
The mind is willing...let's hope the legs are.
Where is everyone?Â Oh yeah...they ran passed me!
My 4 1/2 mile leg is in the books.
The entire NF team post race @ the Asbury Park Convention Center
Saturday Iâll run with my buds from the NF Endurance team in the Jersey Shore Relay.Â Itâs a marathon broken into 5 parts.Â I lucked out and only have to run 4 Â½ miles.Â Training has been tough with the miserable weather weâve had the last 2 months but I think Iâm ready to go for it.Â Â My goal?Â Finish ahead of Snooki.Â I leave from a place called Gee Geeâs in Manasquan on the shore.Â Ever been there?Â Is it a pizza place?Â T-shirt shop?Â Strip club?Â Iâll find out in the morning.
I run for a reason, and my reason is a little girl named Meadow. Â Youâve probably heard me talk about her before.Â Her Mom Lisa is one of our biggest fans, or she might be a stalker, Iâm not sure.Â :)
Meadow suffers from NF (Neuro-fibramatosis), a disorder that causes tumors to grow along nerves and can affect the development of bones and skin.Â Click the link to learn more.
Little Meadow is a true inspiration.Â Sheâs been through many surgeries in her short life.Â Someday she will either host a show on the Weather Channel or marry Chester from Linkin Park, or maybe both!
Whenever I feel like Iâm about to hit a wall while running, I look down at my NF bracelet on my wrist and think of Meadow.Â Suddenly my aching legs donât feel that bad.
We kicked off "Dancing with the Stars" Madness this morning.Â Each of us picked out 3 celebs.Â The last one standing wins the jackpot (whatever loose change we can find under our car seats) AND the first one to have all 3 of their celebs eliminated must perform some sort of public humiliation (TBD).
DWTS Draft Picks:
3--Sugar Ray Leonard
What do you think of our picks?
Who do you think will win the Mirror Ball Trophy and who will be the first to go?
REASONS FOR WOMEN TO GET EXCITED ABOUT MARCH MADNESS
It all starts tomorrow…March Madness. That’s the NCAA basketball tournament. Hoops will be ALL OVER your TV for the next 2 ½ weeks. It’s the most exciting time of year for a sports/basketball fan.
But if you’re a woman not into b-ball, why should YOU get excited?
Here are a few reasons I came up with--
1--Guys think it’s hot if you can talk brackets. Get in a March Madness pool at work. Just pick your favorite cities, states or schools. You’ll probably do better than most guys!
2--Hot muscular college guys in shorts. OK, the shorts are down to their knees, but they’re still shorts.
3--Fun with numbers. It’s easy to sound like you know what you’re talking about if you use the following expressions: Sweet 16, Elite 8, Final 4
4--Dick Vitale. “Dicky V” is a basketball announcer & icon famous for such catch phrases as “It’s awesome, baby!”, “Diaper dandy” (sensational Freshman), “Dipsy-doo dunk-a-roo” (fancy slam dunk) and “Human Space Ship” (big player).
5--Think of it as American Idol meets Dancing with the Stars. Teams are voted off. And you don’t have to waste your time voting.
6--Do you like going to the Woodlands or the Hardware Bar & ripping up the dance floor? Well, the tournament is also called THE BIG DANCE.
7--It’s your chance to be SMARTER THAN THE PRESIDENT. This is the 3rd straight year President Obama has filled out a tournament bracket for ESPN. He says all 4 #1 seeds (Duke, Kansas, Ohio State & Pittsburgh) will make the Final Four. Prove him wrong!
I just finished readingÂ Lissaâs Blog about hecklers at comedy shows.Â And now I understand why our night turned out the way it did.Â She jinxed us! :)
We all went to see comedian Lewis Black @ the Scranton Cultural Center.Â Lewis opened the show by hintingÂ that some people in the audience might not get his âactâ.Â This triggered a response from the jack-hole sitting directly in front of us.Â
âWhat act?â the nimrod screamed.
Welcome to Scranton, Lewis.
I love when one idiot with a loud mouth tries to become the star of the show.Â And the sad thing, Lewis had to call this guy out whenever he spoke up.
We came to see one of our favorite comedians, not listen to some obnoxious knuckle dragger.Â And what made the night even more bizarreâ¦the dung-beetle was there with his Mom!Â I bet sheâs proud.
I told the mouth that roared to keep it down.Â That kept him quiet or a few minutes.Â But the urge to be Mayor of Annoying-ville was too strong. Â He yelled some nonsense again.Â Lissaâs date then said something to the doofus.Â Again, that worked, for a few minutes.
SoÂ Professor Dillweed,Â thanks for spoiling a great night of comedy.Â I'm sure Lewis Black will have fond memories of NEPA because of you.Â Nice work.Â Next time why don't you stay home & watch Cops.Â Maybe you'll see yourself on TV!
Wow! Have you heard whatâs happening in Camden, NJ? Itâs the 2nd most violent city in America and now they are making it even easier for the scum of society to act up. The city just laid off Â½ of its police force!
If youâve even seen a concert on the waterfront you know youâre one wrong turn away from some real nice neighborhoods. Did I really just see a bunch of teens using the engine compartment of an abandoned Buick to grill burgers? Well, if you plan on seeing Dave this Summer, better pack a flak jacket.
I was born & raised in New Jersey. New Jersey I've been defending you most of my adult life. Iâve heard all the jokes. (Exit 168 if you need to know) But come on Garden Stateâ¦get your act together.
Jersey Shore. The Real Housewives. Joe Piscopo. Now this?
As Wanda Sykes once saidâ¦
âDo you know how dirty New Jersey is? You drive thru New Jersey youâre gonna get a lump on your breast. Better get a Mammogram at the toll!â
If youâre a football fan like yours truly, youâve got to be totally psyched about this weekend. Even if youâre not a big fan, WATCH! Itâs the Divisional Playoffsâ¦3 out of the 4 games are great ones. If a team wins this weekend, they're 1 step away from the Super Bowl in Dallas!
Hereâs my picks:
Steelers over Ravens Being a Browns fan, I HATE to pick Pittsburgh, but theyâre the better team. Man I hate those Terrible Towels. Theyâre playing at home. Look for the Steelers to win by a late Field Goal.
Patriots over Jets New England is a far better team. And they have the better coach. They also got a gift when the Jetsâ Antonio Cromartie ripped Tom Brady in the media this week. How about shutting your mouth and playing some football? The last time these 2 teams met it wasnât pretty. Pats by 17. Â
Packers over Falcons This is probably the toughest pick of the weekend. I had to go with one upset. And I love Clay Matthews, Jr. It could go either way. Green Bay looked great against the Eagles, but almost blew the game in the last minute. And, Atlanta is playing at home. Flip a coin. Pack by 1. Â
Bears over Seahawks Everything went right last weekend for Seattle in their huge upset over the defending champs, New Orleans. Thereâs no way they can do that 2 weeks in a row, right? Chicago by 10.
Have fun watching the games. And if you REALLY want to win some money, disregard any of the above drivel!
So we’re trying to put together a “Dumb Stuff” show for Tuesday morning. Sue can balance things (including a toaster) on the flat spot on her head, Lissa can stick her ENTIRE fist in her mouth (girl’s got skills) and I have a no hurling streak.
If things go right, we’ll be joined in the studio by a dude that can pull a small chain thru his nose and out his mouth, a woman that can write in cursive forward & backwards and a master ear wiggler all while being serenaded by a young girl that plays a tuba. Impressive huh? Maybe not, but it made us laugh.
If you have a dumb talent that you’re proud of, shoot us an email.
We’d love to have you join the show!
And yeah, the video could be bigger than the homeless DJ!
It's the end of the year, and everyone has their end of the year lists. I must say, 2010 was a memorable year. And you guys made it a lot of fun. Sue learned an important lesson this Summer...kickball is a full-contact sport! But she battled back from her freaky achilles injury and is back chasing sales people down our hallways.Â
We added a 3rd member to the show, Lissa, a renegade rock chick from Michigan that showed up at our front door this Summer. She seemed cool, and looked like she needed a hot meal, so we moved a 3rd chair into the KRZ studio. I now keep an industrial size bottle of Tylenol within arms reach at all times!Â
Intern Snuggy moved on and got a job with the Penguins while he finishes up his college degree. His spot was soon filled by Intern Kyle, another LCCC product. Kyle upped the geek factor on our show times 10. He hipped us all to XBox Kinnect and kept showing Sue & I hidden features on our IPhones. And Kyle also provided us with one of our favorite moments of the year!Â
Here's a quick look back @ some of my faves from 2010. And let's strive to make 2011 even more eventful. Thanks for being a part of the show!Â

We hosted our annual Ghost Hunt with listeners over the weekend. This year's location: Old Mill Village in New Milford.
All of the buildings in the village are very old. Most came from different locations. They all have a bit of a history with the paranormal. This combined provided a great backdrop to this year's hunt.
Kevin from the Central PA Paranormal Research Assoc. giving his pre-hunt talk
This hearse was parked in the front of the museum--"It drives dead people!"
Sue's excited about what she's captured in her camera
Sue's orb photo taken in the old school house
Closeup of the school house orb
The term orb describes unexpected, typically circular artifacts that occur in flash photography â sometimes with trails indicating motion â especially common with modern compact and ultra-compact digital cameras.
Another orb in the school house
Orb close up
What was that???
One of our listeners suddenly became possessed!!!
(Ok, it's just her contacts, but still freaky looking.)
Look closely and you'll see an orb by the old covered bridge
We were getting some high EMF readings near the shoulder of one of
the dresses hanging in the museum
An EMF meter (or EMF detector) is a scientific instrument for measuring electromagnetic fieldsÂ (abbreviated as EMF). Most meters measure the electromagnetic radiation flux density (DC fields) or the change in an electromagnetic field over time (AC fields), essentially the same as a radio antenna, but with quite different detection characteristics.
Look closely at this photo and you'll see that I'm intent on getting an
updated score on the World Series!
If you were on our Ghost Hunt this year and took any interesting photos, email them here and I'll add them to our Blog:
Thanks again to Kevin, Jo and the rest of the crew from the Central PA Paranormal Research Association, the staff @ Old Mill Village, Nasser Limo and the fun bunch of listeners that hung with us in the dark.
A few had more unusual experiences then we did.Â You'll be hearing all about it when we're back on the radio Wednesday morning!
added Tuesday 11.02.10 Â 2:23pm
Just received this email from one of our listeners.Â Cool stuff!
Thanks so much for allowing me and my friend Melissa to join you guys. We had a blast!!!
Here are some of the pictures I gathered. There are not many and some of them I am not really sure of the "orb" existing since some of it might be dust but I have attached what I thought was good.
Ghost Hunt 030 shows an orb up toward the ceiling over Rocky.
Ghost Hunt 034 shows an orb on the chalk board. It is an oddly shaped one but very bright.
Ghost Hunt 050 is the picture i got in the Carriage House. I showed Kevin right after I got the picture and he said that it was a moving orb!
When we went to the Mercantile there was not much going on there. However, Ghost Hunt 143 was taken in the mercantile. It shows an cloudy orb in the upper corner. Ghost Hunt 149 also shows an orb and Ghost Hunt 150 shows orbs as well. Â Take a look at the person in the corner...she looks creepy with her glowing eyes!
Ghost Hunt 163 shows a bright small orb behind the bridge where there was supposedly a "malevolent' being. I do not have any evidence of the "black shape" I "ran into" and encountered near the bridge at the end of the night. I am not sure if perhaps Kevin got evidence of that but it was pretty exciting.
When I "ran into" the black shape near the bridge my camera just shut off. IJust shut off. I just changed the batteries so it was not the batteries. This happened very often that night in various places. I would be using my camera and it would just shut off but it happened more at the bridge than anywhere else.
So, a couple pictures to share. Perhaps they are really orbs or perhaps they are dust or moisture but I must say I am a tad closer to being a curious semi-believer.
Wow!Â What a response to our 3rd Annual BRAS ACROSS THE BRIDGE!!!Â Saturday turned out to be a beautiful Fall day, and you guys made it even more beautiful.
Our goal was to line the Market Street Bridge in Wilkes-Barre with a huge chain of bras.Â Each bra was a $5 donation to the American Cancer Society, and many represented Breast Cancer survivors.
Your donation this year helped to raise $3500 for Breast Cancer research.Â And even more than that, it was great to see the support for such a worthy cause.
And yes...we did it!Â This year's chain of bras stretched all the way across the bridge and spilled over into Kirby Park.
The most asked question of the day?Â What happens to my bra?Â If you donated a bra, good news.Â It will be a part of next year's chain.
We had such a huge response this year, what's next?Â Should we do the Market Street Bridge & back?Â Maybe we'll line the Pierce Street Bridge as well.Â Or, if we get enough bras, we can continue the chain down Market Street onto Public Square.Â The possibilities are endless.
We got our fill of wine & cheese this weekend @ the amazing Fork & the Cork event @ the Woodlands. And I also learned that I've been mispronouncing the Belgian beer Hoegaarden all these years. Hoegaarden has always been one of my faves, but beer lovers, it's "Hoo" and not "Ho"!Â So the next time you order a "Dirty Ho" ask for a "Dirty Hoo" instead.Â It now sounds like something Dr. Seuss would drink!
Lots of our friends were there including Lisa from IGourmet, Trish Hartman & Ryan Leckey from WNEP, Chef Kate Gabriele and Jeff from Ketel One (Diageo)

LookÂ who weÂ found...KRZ Cruise Winners Sharon & Justin
SNL WAS BOOB-A-LICIOUS
Katy Perry was the musical guest on the premiere of SNL.Â AndÂ her boobs were again the center of attention following last week's Sesame Street nonsense.
Just wrapped up our 2nd beautiful day in Bermuda.Â Off we went for another fun-filled day on the beach.Â This time we hit Snorkel Park, a short 10 minute walk from our ship.
It's an awesome beach with snorkeling (OK, that's obvious), kayaks, bar & grille, and one of the coolest things we've ever seen anywhere...
...beach-side beds!Â What a concept!!!Â You can chill out on a Sealy Posturepedic.Â And the beach had one of the coolest looking pieces of driftwood--
Sue got yelled at by the bartender after we dragged over one of the bar chairs to the beach shower.Â She'd been on her feet all day, still bouncing back from the achilles injury, and need a break.Â "Those are $200 chairs, they can't get wet!"
The fish were everywhere!Â You didn't even need snorkel gear to see them.
We had a great lunch in town, Grouper sandwich, Bermuda Chowder with Sherry Pepper sauce and an amazing dish called Chicken Takki with Curry & ginger.
When we jumped back on the ship we ran into Sharon & Justin from Peckville.Â They were the lucky contest winners that got to cruise for free.
What a cute couple.Â And Sunday on the ship, Justin rocked Sharon's world with an engagement ring!
We all waved goodbye to Bermuda.Â Following a brief rain shower a rainbow appeared.
Weâve been having a lot of fun this week with the Jet Blue guy, Steven Slater. But reallyâ¦.a folk hero? Shouldnât the word âheroâ be reserved for someone that actually does something heroic? Quitting is not heroic unless youâre quitting smoking. Just ask our night guy Fishboy!
Iâd be lying if I told you Iâve never had a day where I didnât feel like âgrabbing 2 beers and going for a slide.â Weâve all had days where we were tempted to tell our boss to find some other stooge to do this job. But why havenât we grabbed the PA and told everyone to âkiss offâ? Try a little thing called responsibility. Maybe you have a family to feed, a house or car payment to make, or you just feel fortunate that you ARE employed.
The lead story on NBC news last nite was all about the economy. There are 14.6 million people out of work in our country. Make that 14.6 million plus 1--Steven âIâm mad as Hell and Iâm not going to take it anymoreâ Slater.
Slater says the stress has been building up for 20 years. Maybe he just wasnât cut out to be a flight attendant. I worked my way through college every Summer in the Poconos as a waiter. And every Summer I always looked forward to Labor Day. That was the day all the annoying tourists went home! But I never once lost my cool and screamed at a customer. I may have called them names in the kitchen but never on the dining room floor.
So enjoy your 15 minutes this week Slater. And good luck in your next job interview when your asked âHow did things go at your last place of employment?â

Following in the heels of my public flogging (re: Velvet Boy photos) it is time for a few more pieces of award winning photography. Dug out of an old shoe box (Penny Loafers if you're asking) in the bottom of Sue's parent's closet comes vintage Sue Barre.
Collect them all...trade them with your friends, or just have fun coming up with your own captions!
Here's they are...Sue's kiddie pix!
Warning: Drinking while viewing these photos might be hazardous to your health.
Here's Sue rockin the bangs with her brother Rod.
The entire Barre family pose for a garden portrait.

Here he is, America's newest multi-millionaire, Chris Shaw.Â The convenience store clerk from central Missouri is the winner of the 10th largest Powerball jackpot in history:Â $258 million!!!
Think he's going to Disneyworld?Â Ok, maybe.Â But the first stop better be the dentist!
She grew up on a cow farm in Shickshinny, was discovered @ the Wyoming Valley Mall, and stars in the new movie "She's Out of Your League", which opens this weekend.Â Actress Krysten Ritter called the show to talk about the flick, her busy career and how she was named an honorary Hooters girl!
We were talking about strange foods this morning after reading about a NYC restaurant that is serving cheese made with breast milk.Â Listener April called to tell usÂ about a dish she tried in South America called Cui.Â It's a type of Guinea Pig.Â Â Mmmmm, sounds delish!
We're sitting here in the office planning for tomorrow's show & Sue just called me a pig hater! I'm not offended by that at all...in fact, I wear that badge proudly!
It all started this morning when Sue said she wanted to adopt a potbellied pig after reading the story of the 28 @ a local animal shelter.
First off...Sue is never home. I'd be left caring for the oinker. Secondly, we don't own a farm & don't plan on getting one anytime soon. A pig in the house makes no sense to me. In a related note, bacon isn't on my heart healthy diet!
I feel bad for the little piglets. They were abused by their owner. But I'm not ready to let one run loose in the house!
How about you?
Call Kathleen, the shelter's adoption coordinator @ 585.0511
I just blogged from my Iphone! How cool is that? Download the Wordpress App if you're a blogger.

The countdown is on...til the finale of LOST.Â This week the Exec Producers of the show were on Jimmy Kimmel LiveÂ & announced that the VERY last LOST will be Sunday May 23.Â That's 108 days from today.Â And that's it.Â No more.Â NoÂ Jack & Kate (plus 8?)Â spinoffs.Â Â No Lost:Â The Early Years.Â Â And Hurley will not be competingÂ on the Biggest Loser anytime soon.Â
If you are lost after watching Wednesday's premiere of LOST, here's an explanation from Executive Producer Damon Lindelof--
Right out of the gate, in the first five minutes of the premiere, you get hit over the head with two things that youâre not expecting. The first is that Desmond is on the plane. The second thing that we do is we drop out of the plane and we go below the water and we see that the Island is submerged. What weâre trying to do there is basically say to you, âGod bless the survivors of Oceanic 815, because theyâre so self-centered, they thought the only effect [of detonating the bomb] was going to be that their plane never crashes.â But they donât stop to think, âIf we do this in 1977, what else is going to affected by this?â So that their entire lives can be changed radically.
In fact, it would appear that theyâve sunken the Island. Thatâs our way of saying, âKeep your eyes peeled for the differences that youâre not expecting.â Some of these characters were still in Australia, but some werenât. Shannonâs not there. Boone actually says that he tried to get her back. There are all sorts of other people that we donât see. Whereâs Libby? Whereâs Ana Lucia? Whereâs Eko? These are all the things that youâre supposed to be thinking about.
A few more secrets were revealed on Kimmel's show too.Â Check out these clips if you missed it.

Joey B from People mag called the show Thursday morning to clear up all the Brad & Angelina rumors AND to solve the mystery behind Brad's scraggily beard.
Here's what Joey had to say....
Did Brad & Angelina split up? A report of them splitting came from News of the World, a British tabloid known for playing fast and loose with the facts, but it was picked up by The Sunday Times, which isowned by the same company.
Multiple sources close to the couple tell People they are going strong. Any talk of a split is "totally false," says one source, while another adds that "everything is fine."
While the world dissected their breakup, the two stars were nesting in the L.A. home that they share with their kids.
Did they sign a split agreement? Multiple sources close Â to the couple deny the Â News of the World claim that Pitt and Jolie signed papers divvying up custody and property for a breakup. In fact, a source close to the British tabloid says that editors saw an old, prenup-like document, but not one with the details in the story. "They have absolutely no reporting about an actual split," says the source.
Did Brad hold an "intervention" for Angelina? According to a widely repeated tabloid report, during the couple's night out at Alto in Manhattan on Jan. 6, Pitt issued an ultimatum, demanding Jolie seek professional help for depression. But a witness told People, "Angelina was unusually happy that night." Another observer adds, "Brad was very friendly." The couple, who were joined by four pals, ate and drank for more than six hours. "They were the last table to leave here, after 1 a.m.," says one source.
What's the real deal with Brad's Â beard? This just in: Blame George Clooney! A source close to Pitt reveals his beard is a bet between the pals. Clooney gives big bucks to charity for every month Pitt keeps the ZZ Top look, and "bonus donations" every time it's mentioned in the media. Time to pony up, George.
Did Angelina snub Brad's Â family?
Several tabloid reports claim the couple fought over Jolie refusing to spend time with Brad's family. In truth, Brad's brother Doug was spotted with the Jolie-Pitt bunch in New York City over the holidays, and a source says the Jolie-Pitts flew to Springfield, Mo., for a Christmas day visit to Brad's parents.
Why didn't Â they go to the Golden Globes or SAG awards Â together?
Sources close to them say the couple decided a while ago to take a break from the awards circuit this season. Pitt wasn't personally nominated for Inglourious Basterds, though the movie's cast was. After an Â intense awards competition last year, Pitt felt "over it," Â another source says.
ZWINGLE, Iowa - Ask this Iowa wife if she got the perfect birthday present and she'll tell you her hubby "dung good."
Carole and Dick Kleis live together on their eastern Iowa farm. This year for her birthday, Dick used more than 120,000 pounds of manure to spell out a special message. It basically says 'Happy Birthday, Love You,' but in shorthand.
And it only took three hours to spell it all out in a stinky, but mushy way.
"It's not hard," said Kleis. "Any manure will work but the good, soft, gushy, warm stuff works the best. It kind of melts the snow."

Did you get sucked in watchingÂ the "Balloon Boy" TV coverage yesterday?Â I was in the middle of an eye exam, when I heard CNN blaring from the waiting room.Â I couldn't stop watching that weather balloon racing across the Colorado sky @ 40mph, 7,000 ft up.Â It was gripping TV.Â Little did we all know that the Balloon Boy was actually safe @ home hiding in the attic.Â The kid's parents once appeared on the reality show "Wife Swap".Â Was this some sort of elaborate hoax?Â Whatever it was, I felt duped by the 6 yr old, and the dramatic coverage on CNN.
Here's video of the Balloon Boy apparently admitting that the whole thing was a hoax.

Today's show was brought to you by the letter P.Â P is for perv &Â for psychic.Â I was called a perv for asking a teacher what she was wearing on her first day of school.Â Please folks, lighten up.Â Thanks to those of you that came to my defense on Facebook with the following comments:
*As long as it isn't followed with "and underneath?"
*I don't think you are.Â It would depend on tone of your voice.
*Not as inappropriate as "Guess what I'm holding!"
*Only if you whispered it and snorted after asking!
*When you asked that teacher what she was wearing, I knew exactly where you were going. Maybe the real perverts are Sue and her fans ;)
Again, my point...it's your first day of school, your first day @ a new job, what are you wearing?

SUE CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A "COPS"-LIKE MOMENT
Sue had a crazy day on Saturday.Â Her parents were visiting and she had to take her Dad to the ER when he was complaining of a fever.Â ERs are the worst on the weekends and Sue's experience was no different.Â "Sex & the City" was playing on the TV in the waiting room.Â Apparently a Mom felt offended since she had her daughter with her and let the entire ER know about it.Â A verbal fight broke out and security was called.Â Yeah, Sue found herself in a "Cops"-like moment.Â Luckily things were diffused before it got physical.
Finally got a goods night sleep, but still tired.Â Got a text saying "stop whining about your sleep!"Â Sleep is my life right now.Â Grrrrr.
On to the show.
