Random

I swear, I just got off the phone with Diane Rehm. You know, NPR's ultra-liberal talk show host, who sounds like a chain smoker who's just been punched in the throat. Ok, I shouldn't be too harsh on her, I believe that she has/had some sort of throat ailment, and for that she has my sympathies. Either way, the woman with whom I was just on the phone sounds exactly like her. She of course claimed to be someone else, and I played along, but I was tempted to interrupt her and say "Is this you, Diane? How'd you get this number? That's the Diane Rehm I know, always a joker." Darn me and my politeness. Now she probably thinks that I had no idea, and she'll be laughing her already strained vocal chords to the point of combustion (can they combust? I'm no doctor). I just hope she doesn't mention in on her show on Friday, then everyone will think I'm a gullible idiot. Maybe they already do.

Apparently it's not a throat problem so much as a brain condition - Dilbert guy Scott Adams suffered from it too. http://www.usatoday.com/life/people/2006-10-27-adams_x.htm

Eh, she keeps her chin up about it, and still manages to find time to make prank phone calls, and at her age, too.

Hey, give the poor lady a break. How would you like to have Botox injected into your vocal cords every 6 to 8 weeks or so? Ouch. She has dystonia. I like her a lot better than Dr. Laura or Rush. There! Now you know where I stand...So, D.Cous. what are you doing on Friday, Dec. 8th? Wanna get on Mommy Mish's good side (you're already there...)? Looking for help with the Big Move.
Oh yeah, and it better not have been ME that you were confusing with Diane! I did call, after all. And I believe I had kind of lost my voice (mind?) at that point....Hmmm, maybe you're not on my good side after all!

I KNEW mom would comment on this!! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. I love my life. Didn't know Scott Adams had it. Ewwwww shots in the throat....ahhh ha ha....ew...eck.....shiver.

My other fave NPR person is Ann Bozell (sp?), she has a nice BUV when she says "From NPR News in Washington, I'm Ann Bozell." I also like Steve Innskeep and Renee Montagne. You may wonder why I'm suddenly interested in NPR, but since the ice storm has permanently frozen my antenna down, it's the only station that comes in in the morning that doesn't have annoying morning shows featuring PA Pranks and potty jokes and DJs laughing. See you saturday.

Hehheh, anonymous is pretty funny. Sounds like a translation machine gone bad (Sorry Mr. Anonymous) or something.
