and i composed this itinerary as follows (below) w/ some vague blank time too for open doors and wandering ...
however, little Parker Bean has been having diarrhea for a while now when he'd go #2. we've had his blood checked and tried allot of medications and so forth but the problem still persisted.
well on Wednesday, the day before we were to drop him off at the Pet Resort and then head to Princeton and on to Manhattan, he had really bad diarrhea and not just at #2 times but through out the day and night and he was vomiting.
we took him to the Animal Hospital and the poor guy was dehydrated and had to get a shot to re-hydrate and they did an x-ray and the next day an ultra sound.
in short, he's most likely allergic to the free range chicken we've been feeding him w/ his organic kibble and a couple treats and so now he's on a special diet of organic salmon and sweet potatoes (dry and wet food) and is only allowed his SmokeHouse beefy sticks and the organic treats from "the Dad on Eight Is Enough" ...
at any rate, $1, 200.00 Vet bill for the past couple days is a worth while cost for a piece of mind.
and, so yesterday we were at the Strip District in Pittsburgh, PA and I spent $360.00 for four meals: two 10 oz Copper River King Salmon fillets, four 8 oz Copper River King Salmon fillets, two wild lobster tails, a bag of wild shrimp and a Coca-Cola Zero.
the Copper River King Salmon was $59.99 a pound. wow, yeah, i know, i could have had it flown in for less. however, no one from the Pacific North West called me and said, "Mr. French, we have Copper River King Salmon for you."
and when i picked it up Parker and my wife received allot of attention and my the woman there who remembers me from when i was kid there stated to me, "see, Gianni, there's a reason you're not in Manhattan right now." ...

Wake up extra early. (If you think you can arrive at 7 a.m. and get a good spot, you're mistaken.)
Get to the corner of 49th and Rockefeller Center before dawn. (The security guards say there are already people when they arrive at 6 a.m.)
Stay to the southeast corner -- that way you'll be behind where the anchors sit.
Bring the goofiest sign you can think of -- that way you'll be more likely to get attention.
Be smiley and enjoy yourself -- you want all your friends to see how much fun you're having in New York!
Wear comfortable shoes -- standing around for hours can get tiresome.
Come with your friends. Nothing better than people to have fun with while you wait.
Dress for the weather. You don't want to get up that early and have to leave because you're cold.

"screaming amphibians" ... the characters of Red Eye rock the early morning satellites and TV towers
Greg, Bill and Andy have been delivering allot lately = and have been consistently solid with great consecutive shows that have a stimulating flow that seem to go by rather quickly. I tune-in at 3 a.m. everyday of the week and as soon as it starts it's already time for TV's Andy Levy's Half Time Report and then before you know it Greg is reading the email messages sent in (or the ones that Bill Schulz actually wrote and sent in under his online handler name for his tribe.net account, "funky-monkey-man-who-like-banana").
From talking about stories such as "sexpresso" = (drive through coffee houses that have women in sexy lingerie serving Joe's their cup-of-Joe's); and how comedian Michelle Collins buys her hot dogs at "schlongies" = to stories about how the first Internet couple is celebrating 25 years of marriage and further commentary revealing that the gorgeously smart, funny and articulate Anna Gilligan tried Internet dating after surprisingly finding out there's a shortage of good eligible men in NYC after having exhausted the traditional route via "friends of friends" or family and colleagues = to the story about two Belgian guys who developed a new form of utilitarian entertainment called "Place to Pee" which allows an individual to enjoy computer gaming while peeing (controlling "the play" w/ their own, attached "joysticks") to learning Greg is dating John Stamos; Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger dislikes Ted Casablanca and the how Entertainment Weekly's Senior Editor informed us about what summer movies are gonna be good and which ones will suck --- and the information which shocked me the most was unearthed when Greg asked his mother, Mrs. Jackie Gutfeld, if she was smoking stuff in the garden again and is that why she found McCain on SNL so hilarious.
Hmmnnn... Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger dislikes Ted Casablanca??? I wonder what that's about??? How can you not like E! and Ted and the Awful Truth???
Ted was speaking the funny awful truth this early a.m. when he commented that all the celebrities who complain about being gossiped about and having their names and photos all of the place are the ones who actually love all the exposure and desperately seek it.
Yeah, that's Ted and his "awful truth."I applaud that as there are those who are cool, organic and nonchalant and then those who are products - like shrink wrapped slices of Velveeta cheese - so let's be honest about it instead of trying to duke middle America like they are duked into voting for "good values" when actually for their socio-economic situation that vote works against them.
... and, "Judge Napolitano ... If intelligence were ornamental glass, he'd be hand blown --- ---That's how you make ornamental glass, people!"
...and, "Remi Spencer ... She's so smoking that she sets my alarms off and gets me wet --- ---Its a Safety precaution people."
... and, of course, ... "Dr. Marc Lamont Hill ... If intelligence were stomach-staples he'd be inside STar Jones right now!" ... and the second introduction for Dr. Marc Lamont Hill ... "If intelligence was a dug-out, he'd have many men inside of him." ...
...and, can't forget, "Michelle Collins ... If hilarity were a vacuum cleaner, she'd suck." ...
...and, oh yeah,... "Anna Gilligan ... If cuteness were a trampoline, I'd jump on her everyday." ...
Andy Levy busted this one out to Will & Grace's Leslie Jordan about Bill Schulz stating that he'd attend Leslie's 35 year high school class reunion w/ him, "yeah, Leslie, Bill want come with you ... he'll come before you! ... sad, I know from experience."
Speaking of TV's Andy Levy, Greg has been educating all of us on a couple fun facts about Andy that I surely was unaware of --- such as, "Andy shares a tree-house w/ a family of squirrels in Central Park" ... and that "Next month TV's Andy Levy is hosting the trials for the 2008 Feline Olympics to be held at Yarnball Field. With events such as the 100m dash, Mouse Put, and competitive tree climbing, the best cats from all over the world will be competing to show off their skills at the main event later this year."
BTW, Greg, Andy & Bill have some moments on video from the past few shows on http://www.foxnews.com/redeye/ and also The Activity Pit site --- such as, the "Greg-alogues," and pieces of Writer-director Uwe Boll's latest movie which involves a crazy uncle, an amusement park and the Taliban --- and also FNC's correspondent James Rosen's new book which studies John Mitchell's Watergate role.
In any event, "if you don't tune-in for Red Eye, you probably took your mom to the prom."

what a kick-ass name for a band or album or book of poems
when i post my notes on the past few Red Eye shows that's the title...
Best of Organic Roses,
Dazzling number from Lerner & Loewe's Camelot.
Sit back and relax and enjoy this gay song: the Lusty Month of May... If the spring sunshine and flowers in full bloom aren't making you feel it as it is, this gay song will help put you in the mood.
