Rosie, Go Away!

Does it get more annoying than this?

Rosie O'Donnell is finding yet more ways to get her mug in the headlines even though she basically has no job. Frankly, I don't know what is worse. The fact that Rosie is so ridiculously annoying or that networks deem it necessary to report on her selfrightrous verbal tirades. Evidentally REAL news that is worth reporting isn't as "sexy" as Rosie opening her huge piehole. Excuse that oxymoron.

There isn't much worse than people who need attention or like to hear themselves talk ALL OF THE TIME. We all know individuals like this. Rosie is one of those people. She just can't seem to keep her piehole shut. Her days on The View are long gone and now, reports are surfacing that she would love the opportunity to host The Price Is Right. What tops it all is Bob Barker actually endorses her! What the hell is going on here?

Look, she has her opinions about the war in Iraq, guns, movies, television, food & whatever. That's fine. I could care less about her political viewpoints. This isn't about her opinions, its about her flapping her gums, period.

Rosie, here's a piece of advice. If you want to run your mouth, do it in the privacy of your own home. If you decide not to heed my recommendation, remember this Rosie when you speak:

No one cares.

Father's Day

Father's Day is still a bit awkward for me because I still think of Father's Day as a day where we all chipped in as kids and bought my dad a few ties, a cigar and took him either out for breakfast or tried to make it ourselves. I still remember when he tried to choke down our "version" of pancakes which consisted of too much of every ingredient listed on the box with a few renegade cheerios thrown in for good measure. Those days are coming for me soon enough.

Now that its early afternoon on this special Sunday, truth be told, the aura of Father's Day is just now sinking in. I'm not one for wanting people to give me special treatment even if it is a day for fathers but its easy to just give into the spirit of the day and relish in the fact that I AM A FATHER and not everyone has this luxury that so many of us take for granted myself included. Just a few minutes ago, my son called me from the other room:

"Da, da?"

It was right at that moment that I realized I am not only a father but there is a bond there that is strong and getting increasingly stronger each and every day. The more I think about it, Father's Day is a time where I see myself exploring those times where the silence of an expression or an embrace speaks a library full. And afterward, I'll take several steps back and you can bet I'll be awestruck by the complex connection that my child (soon to be children) have created together.
