    Good eve all! I have to agree w/Ben, not much to comment on. So I just got caught up on almost a weeks worth of reading the blog/comments. I have to admit, some of them really made me lol! Nice change of pace. Also, just read the live blog for Oscars. It's been going for 3 hrs & there were only 28 comments! I tuned in after Walking Dead, yeah, it's a real snooze fest. Well, I hope everyone had a good w/e!

    Not much to comment on tonight. I couldn't remember what that Kathy Ireland looked like. I went to the link, and either that picture is really bad, or modeling wasn't very good to her, except the fact that she's worth $350 million.
