MJ=Freak [ April 17, 2003, 2:39 p.m. ]

Well…I got the yard work done.

Moved a shrub..raked a buttload of beds out.. fertilized the perennials, played with the fountain and pulled a muscle in my leg.


Now the weather is shitty…cold and windy. At least I had a good day to get my chores done.

I managed to avoid the entire Michael Jackson freak show documentaries when they all played on network TV. I was pretty proud of myself. I couldn’t participate in the watercooler discussions at work. I made a point to proclaim my superiority for not stooping low enough to watch them. Well..the other night I couldn’t sleep and turned on VH1. There it was…the entire freakshow. I watched a bit of it before I forced myself to turn it off..it made me feel dirty.

Yes..MJ is a freak but I really think the documentary film maker took advantage of the situation. In voiceover he talked about his concerns for the childrens’ safety but not concerned enough to intervene or stop filming the entire trainwreck. And now I see LaToya is going to do some interviews. Anything to get her name in the papers I guess.

I have such a love/hate relationship with television. I think I’ll just stick to nice harmless television like Spongebob and the Simpsons. Oh and the Brady Bunch. God I love that show. So bad it’s good..like a Twinkie.

Ugh…I better get back to work..I can smell a crisis about to erupt.
