Nothing Compares 2 U - by The Coconutz

I caught this flick, "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" on a recent flight back from Europe. It's a cute movie with a good soundtrack. At the end of the movie there's this version of Sinead O'Connor's - "Nothing Compares to you," by The Coconutz. Check it out - a haunting rendition entirely in Hawaiian.

Always look on the bright side of life

When U. went to Germany in August, the Dollar to Euro conversion rate was ridiculously painful (for us 'Mericans'). But with Europe's economy having it's own financial crisis now, it makes our upcoming vacation to Europe a much sweeter deal - 30% cheaper and still going.

I'm voting for "that one"

Too much is probably being made of John McCain's snide remark as he referred to Barrack Obama as "that one" since I'm sure it wasn't meant as "that nigger standing over there." But that whole thing just felt weird, and it's fun to poke fun at McCain.

And of course my vote is going to "that one" for sure!

And I'm so glad that "that one" won't be in the white house for much longer.

Where is a McCain bingo card when I need one?

I could have filled up an entire bingo card with "My Friends".

Palin Bingo

Last night U. presented me with 2 Palin bingo cards, and I couldn't help but laugh out loud. We were both looking forward to the debate between Biden and Palin, and the game made it much more bearable to hear Palin speak - and downright fun at times.

The space in the middle with Palin's face is called "Air Space" which you automatically get to cross out.

"Maverick!" we both shouted the first of the 20 or so times she said that word - as we each marked an X on our cards.

"Come on...say 'gosh' and 'working mom'," I said.

"Say 'Russia' and 'Sexism'," U. said.

"Oh yeah, she just said 'hockey mom'." "Do you have 'Al Qaeda'?"

"Too bad we don't have 'Talibani' on our cards."
