greg.jpg Now this will make my kid happy! He still likes the Wiggles, not as much as he used to, but this would still be a fun trip. Granted Great Adventure is pretty expensive to go to for the day, but it is cheaper than the mortgage price that is charged to go to the stage show in NY.

Wiggles section opening at Great Adventure
They went from being an Australian children’s music group to a universal kiddy-rock sensation with songs such as “Fruit Salad” and “Hot Potato.” Now the Wiggles — Anthony, Sam, Jeff and Murray — will have their own section of a New Jersey theme park.

Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson is scheduled to open a new Wiggles-themed area on April 2, with rides, merchandise and a restaurant named for a Wiggles album — the Yummy Yummy Café.

Six Flags New England and Chicago are also opening Wiggles World sections this year, said group member Murray Cook, known to fans as the red Wiggle for the color of his hair and his shirt.

“This is just amazing for us, and we are looking forward to seeing it open,” Cook said in a recent phone interview from the set of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” where the group was about to perform.

Cook said he and the rest of the group plan to make an appearance at the park and perform there during the 2007 season, although they will not be part of the regular events.

Rides to be featured in Wiggles World at Great Adventure include the Big Red Car Ride, Big Red Plane Ride, Dorothy the Dinosaur’s Racing to the Rainbow Balloon Ride, Bouncin’ With Wags Ride and the S.S. Feathersword Pirate Ship jam, packed with lots of things to explore. Wiggles merchandise will be available for sale.

At the Yummy Yummy Café, the child-friendly menu will have some appropriate dishes: fruit salad and hot potatoes.

Earlier this week a study was published that said if you microwave sponges, you will kill all the germs in them. Now many people are concerned about stuff like this so the idea is great. In fact I was going to try it out this weekend too.

However, just two days later an amended report was published. Why? Well basically because people are morons. Seems that many people who tried this forgot one basic detail about microwaves. Dry things burn. Sigh…. seems people were putting in dry sponges and setting there microwaves on fire. Aaahhhh! Do we really need warnings on everything these days? I used to think no but I am changing my opinion fast! For example, that warning on hair dryers that says not to use in the shower. But after this, I can see why the lawyers do it, LOL.

Here is a link to the amended story up on CNN……

Ford posted the largest loss for a company EVER! $12.7 Billion! That’s more debt than a lot of small countries. How is this possible? It’s just mind boggling. Don’t they have an accounting staff? Perhaps someone on that team went up to the CFO on January 2, 2006 and said “eehhem, boss…. I think we’re in trouble.” I just don’t get it. How are they still in business? How are they paying there employees? I am very confused…..

From the Best Week Ever site. Not quite sure how to take this….. laugh really hard or cry. Well, I choose to laugh along with VH1. Enjoy!

The Second Coming of Cruise, Not at a Theater Near You

CRUISE IS JESUS.JPGIt is by now common knowledge that Tom Cruise is man in charge of leading Scientology and its minions into the new Hollywood millennium. An ambassador to all things crazy, Cruise has done a fantastic job of roping in new A-list celebs onto his alien train, including, most recently, Jennifer Lopez. We’re sure the consistent ass-kissing of his fellow bi-polar underlings is motivation enough, but an article in today’s Sun makes is wonder if perchance, they’ve gone a scad too far. So what’s all the L. Ron Hub-bub?

See, they’re saying that Tom Cruise is Scientology’s version of Christ. Jesus, did they really? Yes, Christ, they did:

The Mission: Impossible star has been told he has been “chosen” to spread the word of his faith throughout the world. And leader David Miscavige believes that in future, Cruise, 44, will be worshipped like Jesus for his work to raise awareness of the religion.

A source close to the actor, who has risen to one of the church’s top levels, said: “Tom has been told he is Scientology’s Christ-like figure. “Like Christ, he’s been criticised for his views. But future generations will realise he was right.”

Play-Doh perfume? Ummm OK 🙂 This is truly a strange product? Why would you want to smell like Play-Doh? Well, maybe I’m thick and just don’t get it…. but if you do or if you want to here is the link……

missile.jpg Chinese test missile destroys satellite. Interesting. This has a lot of our govt. scared. Oh no…… they can destroy out spy satellites! Ummm, wait, isn’t this something we have been working on too? Yup 🙂 They just beat us to the punch.

Am I worried? Nah. Unless the real target is mass media. Since China is pretty big into censorship, maybe they want to kill satellites for HBO or even BBC 3. Now THAT would be tragic. I NEED my TV. OK, that settles it…. let the sanctions begin! We need to stop this now before some poor innocent child can’t watch “A Christmas Story” for 48 hours straight on TBS!

Charles Littleton, 22, was defiant, even after being Tasered by police, when he resisted efforts to remove him from a Saginaw, Mich., City Council meeting. He said he had to stand up for his right to wear his Los Angeles Dodgers baseball cap, despite a rule banning hats for men inside. “It means more than just a hat,” he said. “It’s like my crown. It’s like asking a king to remove his crown.”

26270_5s.jpg Try Shatnervision! Seems Bill and his daughter are starting a video blog on all that is new in SciFi and with Bill himself. It actually looks like it could be interesting and not the train wreck it sounds like on the surface. Well, if he pulls it off as well as Danny, Danny Crane….. I will be watching 🙂
