If you were a long-time reader and first-time poster of anything, would this be your first post?

My. What a substantive contribution.

I've said it once and I'll say it again. Those people aren't right in the head.

Shannon Doherty

On the train in this morning, I was able to watch the DWTS re-broadcasts of Ep 1 and Ep 2 with Shannon Doherty. I was right, she was on during the earlier parts of both shows and I just missed her. I must no longer worry that I've been suffering some sort of black-outs. Shannon's agent should have worked harder to get her on later in the show so that the latecomers like me can watch her. I can't say I'm familiar with Shannon Doherty, her important work on 90210 or even the show 90210. However, I do know OF Shannon Doherty but much like Kim Kardashian and Brittany Murphy (may she rest in peace), I have zero idea why they are (or were) famous. I do know the zip code of the once popular hit show ZOOM. It's 02134.

But that's not why I'm writing today. I just wanted to write that I found it very touching and very sweet to hear and see Shannon's loving comments about her Dad and to see her Dad so happy and pleased . I'm quite sorry that her Dad fell ill and that Shannon was booted of the show. No one ever asks me these things but I think it would be much more interesting to save any booting for later in the show when we've had a much better chance to get to know these people and to see how hard everyone is working. Afterall, most of these stars -- Buzz Aldrin being the exception -- aren't really that famous.

Did Kate Get the Boot?

grrrrrr.... I'm having to work late tonight and cannot watch DWTS. Did Kate get the boot?
Who got the boot? I GOTTA KNOW DAMMIT!

Some colleagues and I were chit-chatting about DWTS today. I must say it was interesting to hear peeps who aren't tuned into the whole GWOP-hates-Kate thing chitchat about the show. Reading the GWOPPER comments, you'd think Kate had some sort of grand mal seizure last night. Normal people, however, don't have any sort of vehement reaction to Kate's dancing or for that matter any star's dancing. They commented about everything and everyone ---- Pamela's boobs, are Max and Erin dating?, are Cheryl and OchoCinco dating?, is Bruno dating Elton John?, Edyta's total hotness, Kate's nervousness, Buzz's age, Julianne's whereabouts, etc, etc. --- but definitely the conversation was NOT locked on Kate. Go figure. It just may be that Kate is not an embarassment to the nation and thefore the reason why Iran refuses to give up nuclear weaponry.

Katie Irene, I voted for you, with all 35,843 of my cell phones that I specifically purchased for the show. Hope you get another go at it next week.

And another thing.

Anytime I hear something like "I teach the teachers", it takes everything I have to keep from giving one of those beating off hand gestures that Michael Jackson makes in his Thiller video. We've all met students, employees, relatives and friends with Kate's controlling personality. So if by now you -- the self-professed teacher of teachers -- don't know how to deal with those peeps, perhaps it's time to go see "the teacher that teaches the teachers who teach the teacher". And that's all I'm gonna say about that, Tony Donoloni, or whatever your name is.

On the other hand, if that whole incident was staged just to get the GWOPPERS going, nevermind.

DWTS Episode #2

So um, yeah, the mental image of Bruno dancing in the moonlight with Elton John is something I could have done without.



Bruno is gay? Who knew?



I sure wish Kate could enjoy this whole experience more. She puts so much darn pressure on herself to learn the stuff when all I really want to see is a Mom of Eight having lots of fun with it. C'mon now, who amongst us doesn't wish someone would swing us around like an airplane whilst wearing a red sparkly outfit with fringe? Or, if we were GWOPPERS, which we aren't, who amongst us wouldn't wish somone COULD swing us around like an airplane in our sparkly red outfits?

Come on, people. Even that consummate bl0-hard Max Cherosnofiszowsky finally seems to get that it's an entertainment show and not the Ballroom World Olympics. When I see Derek Hough and the Pussy Cat Doll pumping their fists because they got a high score even through they're both professional dancers competing against an 80 year old man, I just roll my eyes.

Kate, do you want me to vote for you? I'm not sure.
