Hawaiian Shirts

It is a sad time in America. Mr. Alfred Shaheen, creator of the Hawaiian shirt passed away on December 22, 2008. If you didn't notice, the shirt below is the famous "Jungle Bird" shirt that Tom Selleck made famous in the TV show, "Magnum PI"!

Did you know that Tom Selleck was cast as Indiana Jones in "The Raiders of the Lost Ark", but had to turn it down because of commitments to star in "Magnum PI"?

Also, it has been reported that Matthew McConaughey will play Magnum in a "Magnum PI" movie to come out in 2011! Steve Zahn will play Rick, Tyrese Gibson will play T.C., and William H. Macy will play Higgins! I'm soooooooo excited!

Mike Rowe

You all probably recognize rugged and handsome Mike Rowe from the show "Dirty Jobs" on the Discovery Channel.

Well, what you may not have known is that Mr. Rowe was previously professional singer with Baltimore Opera Company and a host on the QVC network! There are many YouTube clips of him taking calls on QVC while selling porcelain dolls and lava lamps....

Mr. Rowe apparently did a lot of voice over work, including a alleged narration for the "Wunder Boner" infomercial. I thought it was a fake product too, but it's real AND it's still sold today in outdoors shops! I can't help but giggle when the chubby man says "My wife would like that!"

Happy New Year Everyone! Here's to a wonderful 2009! I have been shocked again by interests of internet users throughout the world. Yahoo has released the list of top searches for 2008, and they are awesome. The list includes:

10. American Idol

9. Angelina Jolie

8. Lindsay Lohan

7. Naruto (Some Sort of Anime Cartoon)

6. Jessica Alba

5. RuneScape (Some Sort of Online Game)

4. Miley Cyrus

3. Barack Obama

2. World Wreslting Entertainment

1. Britney Spears

Really? I'm not really shocked that more people searched for Britney Spears more than the recent President Elect of the United States of America, with her craziness and her new album and all. But more people searched for World Wrestling Entertainment than for Barack Obama? I could understand if they election was only focused on by the media for a couple months during 2008, but that wasn't the case! There has been election coverage since late 2007!

By the way I hope you appreciate the tedious task that I pushed myself to complete. I had to spend many, many minutes searching through multiple photos of Jessica Alba, Angelina Jolie, Lindsay Lohan, Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears, just to find good pictures for all of you.

One more fun thing. Go to www.Yahoo.com, and click on the exclamation point in the logo to hear the name of my mother-in-law's favorite mexican restaurant.
