Now I know
Clorox Bleachman Cloris Leachman is a veteran celebrity and all that but you have to admit she is also quite the mouth! Good Lord, that woman can be a bit caustic when she wants to be and it seems she wants to be quite often. Also, while an obvious sentimental favorite, she is not up to par with the remaining dancers and should not be allowed to stay while more deserving dancers are voted off in her place. If we are being honest, we have to admit that really isn’t fair.
I was not at all a fan of Ted “I’m a Man’s Man” McGinley but, come on, he absolutely deserved another week more than Clorox did. That just wasn’t right.
I also felt so bad for Toni Braxton. She looked absolutely terrified being one of the last two and waiting to find out whether or not she had been voted off. It gets so easy to forget that celebrities are still human beings just like the rest of us and rejection is as painful for them as it is for us. If you think about it, it’s almost as if they are waiting to see who gets picked last for the kickball team but they’re doing it on national TV and it is completely based on their performance in a genre that is almost totally foreign to them. To me it makes them more real…more down to earth…more breakable.
So, Clorox, The Bone thinks you need to do the right thing and bow out GRACEFULLY before someone else gets the boot in your place. Oh, and is it just me or did it seem like Erica Kane must have bought out Pine Valley’s entire supply of Glucosamine? She suddenly wasn’t so rickety anymore!
***Don’t forget the premiere of Grey’s Anatomy tonight. Looks like they are going to live up to their usual greatness. I can’t wait! Grey skies are here again!
Jigglin’ with the Twinklers was back again last night with a whole new slate of Twinklers and a few new Pros as well. They all danced last night and tonight someone (Jeff) will be eliminated (Jeff).
The cast this year seems to be pretty evenly spread out with just a few exceptions (Jeff) which are just a bit glaring (Jeff) to say the least (Jeff). My top picks, and again these are only my opinions, but since it is my blog my opinions are the ones that count… I’m liking Cody Linley, Lance Bass, and Toni Braxton, with Toni Braxton being far and away the best of pack.
The OK ones were Brooke Burke, Kim Kardashian, Ted McGinley, Warren Sapp, and Misty May-Treanor. The rest of them are primed for the chopping block…some sooner than others (Jeff).
One thing that totally caught me off guard was the stiffness of Susan Lucci. Who knew that Erica Kane was so rickety? Good Lord! Cloris Leachman had more grace and fluidity of movement than she did. I was stunned. She looked like a stick out there!
Cloris Leachman, though headed for the chopping block soon, will be around for a few shows because she is Cloris Leachman, she is 300 years old, and she is so cool! I did enjoy watching the wonderful lady dance.
Let’s check in tonight and see who gets axed…I say it’s Jeff! Are you surprised?
Last month we had our annual Parrish Family Reunion in Coats, North Carolina. As usual, we had a really great turnout and it was so wonderful to all be together once again. A really special moment was this picture…
This is my Great Aunt, Rebeth Ara Parrish Mitchell, holding her Great, Great Nephew, Dallin Porter Mason. They were the oldest and youngest at the reunion. Dallin was just eleven days new to this Earth while Aunt Re was eleven days shy of her 96th birthday. How cool is that?
Just after I took this picture, Aunt Re came over to me, put her arm around me and said, “When he gets bigger, you be sure and tell him about me.” I promised her I would.
Why you should never, ever let your Smurf friends go with you to the emergency room. It won’t be pretty…
Diagnosis? Non – Terminal Hotwingatosis. It was touch and go for a moment there but we handled it.

Some things are just too stupid for words. This is hilarious and, unfortunately, happened right here in my wonderful City. Proof positive of the dumbness of criminals…
You can read the whole story right here. Oh yeah, don’t forget to read the comments too…they are even better. My favorite one is this gem submitted by robertl71461 entitled “Proper Procedure”…
“You have to pull the steering wheel back towards your chest for proper lift-off of a vehicle. Don’t they teach this stuff in school anymore?”
Oh, and of course we must present this gleaming specimen of human existence with The No No Chicken!
