CROCODILE HUNTER DIES

Alas He's But A Mere Mortal

Breaking News... Crocodile Hunter Steve Erwin dies in a freak accident not from being eaten by a crocodile on camera as he wished but after being stung by a sting ray while making a documentary. Sad because he was my favorite Crazy White Dude on TV Annoying Wild Animals . You can read all about it on CNN.
What a tragedy, that sting ray must have been spawned from the devil. At least he died doing what he loved best. I hope they continue to re-run his shows because he really made zoology on tv interesting. By the way how about I got schooled by my little sister who is now a marine biologist or as they say in Nigeria maritime- scientist or so. I was trying to tell her what a sting ray was forgetting that was her field. How about I told her it was a giant jelly fish with wings and a tail. Lol. I really wasn't thinking about what I had said and who I was saying it to. How about I got called a novice and got school on the difference between the two. But whatever sha, sting ray and jelly fish, they all sting and carry poison too. RIP Croc Hunter, we'll miss your craziness.

Meanwhile how was your Labor day weekend. I ended up bonding with one of my roommates (the other two had gone home for the holiday). On Friday we had left overs and watched a movie together. Then on Saturday I cooked (yes indeed I did, just spaghetti and meat sauce though), we ate and then watched more movies. Then on Sunday he ordered pizza and Buffalo wings, we ate and watched more movies. I swear I have never watched this many movies at a time. Has anyone seen Lady Killers? Isn't that the sickest movie. Whoever wrote that must have been high on some ganja because that movie was just on a different level of not just morbidity but stupidity. But it was a good movie though. I also saw a movie in which one of my new friends gets obliterated by some crazy gun totting creature. I was so not expecting that to happen so you can imagine I jumped on my chair and screamed like a banshee. I mean I knew he was not the lead but c'mon now you know I was really praying and rooting that he would last at least to the end considering there were two black men in the movie. I was traumatized all that day. I should chastise him for not warning me ahead of time. Today I hung out with Chinny and some of her coworkers. Anyways, that was how Addy spent her Labor day hols...oh did I mention I had to go to work today. Yes O in case you forgot or just didn't notice, Television does not go on vacation. There are people who have to work holidays so your tube stays lit. It sucks but that's life. On a good note, I painted my nails a rosy peach color. :) Peace in the Middle Easy!!!!

My son was raised on the antics of Steve Erwin. He will be missed very much. He did die doing what he loved best.
