Heaven Knows

We received word that Suzanne Pleshette passed away this weekend... I wanted to be her when I grew up. She was beautiful, funny, ballsy and you just knew she wouldn’t take crap off of anyone. In short I adored and envied her. I mean my gosh….she was married to TROY DONAHUE

… if you ask who is Troy Donahue I owe you a beeyoch slap for making me feel so damn old…(He was a huge hunk back in the day.)

Suzanne was also married to Tom Poston, how much fun would that have been?

She was a classy lady who will be missed.

Today's Gossip:

The latest word out of BritneyLand is that she has multiple personalities. Insiders say that besides the normal Britney (yes, I laughed out loud as read that phrase—an oxymoron if I ever saw one) there is “British Britney” who speaks with a really bad British accent (must be what Madonna suffers from also) and a “Nympho Britney” who wears pink wigs and shags anything that moves. How could they forget about “Trailer Trash Britney” who does not understand the concept of underwear and likes to walk around gas station bathrooms barefoot?

I am convinced that the reason why California is a state full of fruitcakes is because no matter how wacked out you are, how bizarre your behavior, you will not be hospitalized.

Here is a video of “British Britney” from last night (Ok, everyone all together and using our best faux British accents: WTF??? )

In other news...Clay Aiken will appear in Monty Python’s Spamalot on Broadway this winter. Here is a publicity shot:

…nah, ain’t gonna say anything…it would be like shooting fish in a barrel.

Wildcat News:

Men’s basketball---Freshman forward Bill Walker earned Phillips 66 Big 12 Rookie of the Week honors for the second time on Monday after scoring 19 points in helping the Wildcats topple a top-10 opponent for the first time since 2004.

Walker earned his first Big 12 Rookie of the Week honor on Dec. 10 after averaging 22.0 points and 8.0 rebounds in games against Notre Dame and California. He is also the second Kansas State player to earn Big 12 Rookie of the Week honors twice this season after fellow freshman Michael Beasley was honored on Nov. 19 and Dec. 26, 2007. In all, either Beasley or Walker has captured Player or Rookie of the Week honors six times this season.

Women’s basketball-- For the first time this season, Kansas State women’s basketball is ranked in the Associated Press weekly top-25 women’s basketball poll. The Wildcats enter at No. 22 with 161 points.

This is K-State’s first appearance in the AP poll since Jan. 15, 2007 when they were ranked 25th. The Wildcats are currently on a seven-game winning streak and own an 11-game home court winning streak.

OK, time for the book club to come to order. Refresh your coffee and sit down...

Chapter two recap and observations

Tom’s family moved to Glen Ridge, New Jersey during his sophomore year of high school. Soon after his family settles in he is caught putting his arm around the girlfriend of the high school’s football star and promptly gets the sheeyat kicked out him. The girl, Lorraine Gauli, is something of a local celebrity, starring in “The New Voice” which was a T.V. show I frankly never heard of….I did a search and found this: “A social awareness series that follows the lives of a group of students who write for the "New Voice," the newspaper of Lincoln High School in Boston” It lasted all of one season.

Apparently Glen Ridge High was no different than any other high school in the country: the jocks and preps ruled and life could be difficult if you were not a member of the “in group” Tom (“Maypo” as he was called) was not accepted by the high school royalty but would eventually charm his way in. He wowed everyone at a local dance, spinning, lunging and leaping—all seemingly without effort. What no one knew was that he had spent hours practicing these dance moves waiting for the perfect opportunity to show them off.

Once again we are faced with Tom’s account of a horrific academic experience that does not seem to be backed up by others. He often claimed, later in his life, that he was a “functional illiterate” but his long time high school girlfriend refutes this. Her quote:

“It cracks me up. Maybe he wanted to boost his career by saying that he was dyslexic. He seemed fine to me. I don’t remember him going to special classes and I would have known. He was an average student like me, a B/C student”

When he was offered a role in “Godspell” in a local theater company he told everyone that he was going to skip his high school graduation so that he could appear in the show that day; he wanted to focus on his craft. Year later he claimed that he missed his high school graduation because he was embarrassed about his dyslexia. The Aging Disco Diva has been in education since Moses was in junior high and she can never recall a high school graduation that had a reading test as part of the ceremony.

Before he appeared in Godspell some of his buddies encouraged him to try out for the high school’s production of “Guys and Dolls” His friends had no idea that he had been performing in local theater and plays for much of his life (in fact they had no clue until recently) He was wonderful in his audition and was offered the lead role of Nathan Detroit. His performance was outstanding and left an impression on everyone who attended. In the audience, according to one story, was Tobe Gibson, Lorraine Gauli’s agent. Tobe took him on as a client and became almost like a second mother, devoting herself to helping Tom crack into the professional acting world.

Today’s WTF:

Radar.com released some of the items on the "Sec Whole Track” which is the Scientology questionnaire created by L. Ron Hubbard. This questionnaire consists of 343 questions asked at "audits" in which new adherents are hooked up to an e-meter which supposedly reads their responses, which will help identify which thetans have attached themselves to you (seriously, I couldn’t make this sheeyat up if I tried) Here are some of my favorites:

• Have you ever torn out someone's tongue?

• Have you ever wiped out a family?

• Have you ever tried to give sanity a bad name?

• Have you ever consistently practiced sex in some unnatural fashion?

• Have you ever made a planet, or nation, radioactive?

• Have you ever made love to a dead body?

• Have you ever eaten a human body?

• Have you ever exterminated a species?

• Have you given robots a bad name?

• Have you driven anyone insane?

• Did you come to Earth for evil purposes?

• Have you ever made a practice of confusing people?

• Have you ever gone crazy?

• Have you ever smothered a baby?

• Have you ever castrated anyone?

• Do you deserve to be enslaved?

• Have you ever zapped anyone?

• Have you ever had a body with a venereal disease? If so, did you spread it?

Cue in, once again, the theme from the Twilight Zone:

The Aging Disco Diva was a bit disturbed at all the SEC WHOLE TRACK questions she answered yes to, and has decided the best Thetan repellent is Godiva chocolate and champagne, so she is off to inoculate herself.
