While You Were at the Bar 8/21

News you can use:

Casey Anthony, the mother of Caylee Anthony, a missing Florida girl, may be released from prison today after a bounty hunter has posted her bond. I don't understand this mother. What in the hell is going on with this case? Keep your fingers crossed that the cadaver dogs were wrong.

A Spainair airplane crashed during takeoff yesterday in Madrid. The plane, a MD-82, apparently had one of its engines catch fire and cause an explosion. The flight had 172 people aboard, 19 of which survived, including two infants.

Monopoly is going global, as it unveils a new game with 22 international cities on the board.

News you can lose:

OlympicsAreGoingToKillMe:

- Is it just me or do you not like it either that MSN.com announces the results from competitions that are yet to be seen? I'm thinking of changing my homepage for the next few days.

- I heard that synchronized swimming was on last night but never found it, no matter how hard I tried!

- I'm still missing the swimmers' physiques...

- I TOLD YOU that those outfits Misty May and Kerri Walsh had to wear made me nervous, being itty bitty and WHITE and all... and then the gold medal match happened (which they won, woohoo!) in the pouring down rain. Turns out, I had every reason to be nervous for them, if you know what I mean.

- I am really regretting the fact that I did not take full advantage of the Olympics being in ATL when I lived near there. Although, when soccer was held in Athens, you couldn't go 5 feet without hitting a foreign SOCCER BOY. Damn being 17 and too stupid to maximize the situation!

Word of the Day:

bruit
(transitive verb): to report; to noise abroad

The barmaids, as it has been widely bruited, are not the most clean and orderly of ladies. I mean, their homes! Their homes are not the most clean and orderly!

2 tips left at the bar:

I saw a French movie last night (english subtitles), that showed a french couple playing Monopoly. I laughed (not entirely appropriate as it was a suspense/murder/thriller)

I also searched in vain for synchronized swimming.

I also miss the swimmers. :-)

And I mentioned a similar concern last week on my blog. I also whined a bit about how much the male beach volleyball player's uniforms covered. There was certainly no gender equity in those designs.

LOVE your word of the day feature. :=)

I believe that rain is the very reason guys enjoy the sport of women's beach volleyball.
