Good Luck or Black Magic?

He’s seriously no bigger than ten pounds. And yet somehow, my noisy black cat is beating like 90% of the other bettors in my NCAA Tournament pool.

How is that possible!? The little twitball just discovered his tail and yet somehow he’s smart enough to predict a national college basketball winner?

Fleatbait (I didn’t name him) only cried for UCONN when my boyfriend and I bombarded him with college names. Poor thing just slid his eyes side-to-side quickly like a tennis match spectator.

Does he know something we don’t?

Flea is beating both me and his father. And President Obama’s bracket!


If he does well I should use him for lotteries!


It’s a Small World After All


It’s smaller than an acorn and has an even cuter name.

It’s Tata!

The world’s newest (and cheapest) car went on sale this week in India.

As someone who adores cars, I must say it reminds me of Mercedes’ Smart Car. Although Tata has miraculously somehow crammed four doors onto its small frame.

Besides the obvious ‘aww’ cutesy appeal, it doesn’t scream ‘I’m safe!’ ($2,000 can only buy you so much.)

Maybe it will set off a new worldwide small car craze. Who knows. I’m just sayin’ we might be looking at a trend of real matchbox toy cars coming to life.

But no matter what, it’s still fun to say!

Tata for now my lovelies!

No Doubt Explain Their Songs

No Doubt are doing their own little version of “Storytellers” on their Web site. They’ve created seven videos that explain what seven of their songs are about.

Singer Gwen Stefani says “Spiderwebs” is about a guy who would call her in the middle of the night and sing poetry to her, and how much she regretted giving him her number.

Bassist Tony Kanal says the “hey baby” part of “Hey Baby” came when Bono walked into their studio and started freestyling.

Stefani says she cried after writing “Simple Kind of Life” because it was the first time she wrote an entire song on guitar by herself.

They had also considered remaking “Don’t Change” by INXS (in-ex-ES) for their greatest-hits album instead of “It’s My Life” by Talk Talk. They went with “It’s My Life” because they completely butchered “Don’t Change.”
