Talking Bird

Never seen anything like this in my life!  A bird that can talk, imitate other animals and do sound effects (like a space ship or someone falling).

N.Z. Couple Can’t Name Their Son ‘4real’

This is awesome!  What makes it so awesome is that back in March my family was visiting and we were sitting around the dinner table chatting and launching when my Dad revealed to us his latest "idea" (of which he has many – much longer story).  His idea was a book of baby names that all contained numbers.  We proceeded to convert all our names and family names into names that included numbers:

Name Translation Pronunciation
David DAV1D dav-one-dee
Becky 3ECKY three-kee
Carey CARE4 care-four
Mary MAR4 mar-four
Rob RO3 row-three

We made them for the rest of our family (cousins, aunts and uncles) and then vowed to only call each other and other members of our family by our "number names".  It didn’t really stick as well as we thought and mostly we thought my dad was nuts! 🙂

Turns out that, as always, Dad was right.  Classic! – N.Z. Couple Can’t Name Their Son ‘4real’ – Celebrity Gossip | Entertainment News | Arts And Entertainment

“I’m not a human, I’m a television producer.”

I’m obsessed with the show "So you think you can dance" on Fox.

It’s everything you’d want in a show: dramatic, suspenseful, sexy and all based on reality…actually, it’s just freakin’ hilarious.  Basically you have a co-ed group of talent-show drama-queens fulfilling out childhood dreams of becoming dancers – and you get to watch them crack under pressure on national television.  Even the panel of judges are melodramatic.  It’s fabulous!!  On top of it, some of them are freakin’ amazing dancers and you get to watch them learn choreography and dance – which is pretty cool.

The best scene of the night last night was when, Nigel Lythgoe, the show producer and one of the panel judges was reaming out the tired and injured bunch of contestants that have made it to the Las Vegas round, belittling them for complaining about being sick or injured and how normally, as a human, he would feel awful for them and care for them, but in this case:

"I’m not a human, I’m a television producer."

It was brilliant!! I can’t wait to use that one at work, "I’m not a human, I’m a Program Manager!"
