Are you having a bad very bad day?

Honestly, I don't have bad days I have days where I have prepared for everything except the construction blocking the street that leads to the Park where the BBQ is. Or, I have given everyone all the information only to have the first flight cancelled.

Yet, I don't think this is something I would say happen to me and may very well qualify as a bad day


HiYa Kids...we are back to our regular schedule programming

Did you miss me? I missed you. Seriously, I get concerned when I don't post because my oldest sister might call me.

Well its another 91 Days until 2015 so we have lots to chat about and yes, I will ask you go give money away.

Speaking of giving money away I am going to go to Baltimore because that is where the good stuff happens. Yes, Baltimore Maryland start getting ready because I am going to visit.

Why?

Oh come on...like you don't already know!

But no, to be really honest its because of this article on dlisted.com that totally sold me that I should visit Baltimore even if I don't have cancer treatments scheduled or a dinner party to attend ( gulp! )

Thank you Micheal K you make every day better !

I know that celebrity deaths supposedly comes in threes, but do celeb whore DUIs really need to come in threes too? Two days after Amanda Bynes got put into handcuffs for driving while allegedly high on Adderall, the Geico caveman with a buzzcut known as Michael Phelps was arrested on suspicion of DUI in Baltimore, Maryland this morning. Bitch swims like a fish and drinks like a fish. Moron should’ve swam home! Something tells me that Debbie Phelps is not having a Chico’s kind of day today. Michael Phelps is to blame and he should be jailed for life for that.
What do you think?

The Baltimore Sun says that Michael Phelps’ white Range Rover was pulled over at around 1:40am on Interstate-395 after he was clocked by an officer’s radar going 84mph in a 45mph zone. The officer checked Michael Phelps’ speed while his dumb ass was going through a tunnel. During the stop, the officer noticed that the Cro-Magnon dolphin seemed drunk. In Michael Phelps’ defense, he always has that dead-eyed derp look about him. But Michael was plastered and according to the cop, he failed a series of standard field sobriety tests. He was arrested and charged with DUI, excessive speed, and crossing double lane lines. He was later released.
What do you think?

This is Michael Phelps’ second DUI. In 2004, he got caught drunk driving and later pleaded guilty in exchange for 18 months probation.
What do you think?

Well, the good news is that Animal Planet’s eventual biopic of the Olympian dolphin starring Adam Driver just got juicier.
What do you think?

TMZ asked Michael Phelps’ fellow Team USA teammate Ryan Lochte about this mess and he dribbled this out:
What do you think?

“I’m not concerned … he just makes dumb decisions. He has so much money to get a driver. I even have a driver. Just stinks for the sport of swimming. But he will become smarter from this. Luckily he did not hurt himself or someone else.”
What do you think?
When Ryan Lochte, whose head is filled with nothing but chlorine water and Cool Water fumes, comes off as the voice of reason and calls you out for making dumb decisions, then it’s time to swim off to a corner of the pool to get it together.
What do you think?

UPDATE: Michael Phelps is sowwy.
What do you think?

“Earlier this morning, I was arrested and charged with DUI, excessive speeding, and crossing double lane lines. I understand the severity of my actions and take full responsibility. I know these words may not mean much right now but I am deeply sorry to everyone I have let down.”
