This first clip is from an old WB show called "Popular" that was on TV for only a short while. You know it's old because the network was still WB instead of the CW.
I remember this show being weird but, also very funny.
Here's a clip
And this a commercial that my dad told me about... that made me laugh really hard!!! It will literally "blow you away".
and one more just for kicks! I'll never view beef jerky the same way. :)
So I was in Half Price Books a while back just looking around and just as I was about to leave a section of really old books caught my eye. So, I went over and started rummiging through some of them and noticed that a few of these were really old...like from the late 1800's. I found one book that just kept "calling to me" ...I'm not sure why but I just had a feeling that I needed to purchase it.
The book is called "Sonnets in a Hospital" and it's author is Merrill Bishop.
It was published in 1936 by The Golden Hind Press and is a first edition. (In the book it notes that there are only 100 first editions ever printed, of which mine is #22 out of the 100 first editions.
The book has a handwritten note from the author, Merrill Bishop to her friend, and ends with her personal signature.
I am seriously doubting that the book is worth anything, however, I just thought I would see if any of you internet slueths might have any savy skills to locate someone I could talk to and maybe get it appraised around the Austin, TX area?
I have done some internet searches and found limited info. about the book...not sure if this means that is rare or has any value but, thought I would look into it. I asked a girl that works at Half Price Books and she was having trouble locating any info. on it in their book research database, and she said that normally she never has any problems locating info about a book. She was able to pull up the book on amazon but it seemed that it wasn't even in publication anymore.
Heres the official bibliography of the book and a link to a website that mentions the book.
Thanks for any help and suggestions you can provide!!

I realized that like many people, I had not updated my pleo in quite some time. Man, how time flys!!!! Well I have been hoping that I will actually get a Teaching job for the next school year....I hope. I have been trying to get one for the past THREE YEARS!!! Feels like forever!!!! I am not trying to complain but man come on already ya know...I feel like the Snickers commercial was mad specifically for me!!! I found a funny video and thought that maybe I should have gone to The University of Westfield Online... instead of spending thousands of dollars elsewhere... LOL!!! :)
I just received a call from my mom that my good friend Chad Webb who we have known since middle school, and who went to church with at Burnet passed away today. I can't believe it! I feel so incredibly bad for his family and am in utter shock. He had struggled with numerous health problems since he was born and he had a really rough go of it this past year but appeared to be making a good recovery and I think was on a waiting list for a kidney transplant... please, please keep his family in your prayers...I cannot imagine their grief right now.
Death is never easy, but, when it's someone your own age ...it sometimes feels even more profound.
