So, here’s a story for the AM.

I get up around 5ish... So I put on Fox5 news. Daily.

This morning, they run a story about a “scientific” study that says “cold weather makes men more amorous” .

I send a tweet in 2 parts to Juliet Huddy that reads...

“Wow it took SCIENCE 30 years to catch up to high school limericks”

First part.

So she usually keeps her phone next to the laptop

They go to the traffic girl, and as they cut back she’s reading the limerick.

“When the weathers hot and sticky, thats no time for dunkin dicky,
When there’s frost upon the pumpkin thats the time for dickie dunkin!”

She was ROR on the air..so hard the cohost was chuckling, and asking her if she was alright.

Well of course she’s not flat she had implants as well as a nose job which has left her sounding nasally. She’s engaged to be married for the 4th time or so. Guilfoyle needs to catch up!

I’ve seen her pretty close up IRL, she’s always been busty, but she’s droopy now. You are right about the bad nose job,

I think she’s smarter than people give her credit for and she’s also pretty and has a great sense of humor. People have surgery on their noses for all kinds of reasons.

A new poll (by Harper Polling) suggests “Not Sure” is leading the crowded field for the Democrats' nomination for Pennsylvania governor. That should be considered good news for troubled Republican incumbent Tom Corbett. Of course, given Mr. Corbett's positions on so many of the issues most dear to his traditional base, “Not Sure” could give him a good run for his money next year.

The Rob Ryan one always makes me laugh - I was worried he wouldn’t be in there (head coach-only-ism, or something)

I’m glad he included Coughlin. He looks like he is going to explode at least once every game. Gruden had some great grimaces too.

probably no reason to include Belichick sense his expression wouldn’t change if he got kicked in the gnads or just got told he won a date with Mary Lou Retton

True - but his look always has the same effect on me as Michael Keaton’s in a lot of his movies: he may look non-plussed, but there’s something bubbling under those eyes that’s some combo of evil and rage that you don’t want to be on the wrong side of.
