Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

Okay, personal vent coming...

Oh. My. Freaking. HELL. A certain person I work with needs to buy himself a sense of humor. STAT. We are a laid-back staff, but this jackass? Well, let me just say he has a tendency to take himself MUCH too seriously. Good grief. Settle DOWN, Trigger.

I hate that sick feeling you get in your stomach when people get crazy up in your grill. HATE. IT. Maybe I will talk more about this later. But not now.

Okay, I'm over it.

No, really.

Well first I'll tell you how I got here. I also like Constantine, however; after seeing the ai board I don't want to use the word fan (OMG!!! they are scarey over there...LOL) I'm dying to know what the prank was that your friend played on you though. Could you just give a brief synopsis???
I also definitely need to say, the ai board is chock full of stalkers in training. I understand the whole "we love him" concept but geez people get a life.

I also like Robert Downey Jr. so one day out of boredom I wandered on to one of his scarey obsessive fan sites. It just really amazes me that someone could (insert funny voice and air quotes) looooove someone they have never set eyes on in the flesh.

OK sorry for the long winded rant...Just my two cents.

I don't know if you can edit these posts but if you can; please alter the email address I give you. If you can't, no biggie it's not my permanant addy. Just don't want the groupies to attack should they come across my comments...

(Long-winded comment coming!)

Alana, I actually have NO clue how to erase just parts of posts. I can keep 'em or delete 'em. Could I BE any more technologically challenged?

And I'm with you on the AI boards. You should check out the Pray for the Soul of Betty boards... Whoo-wee! Those people are, to borrow your completely apropos moniker, sincerely frightening Stalkers in Training.

Quick run-down: Basically, the prank was on April Fool's Day, and I had just posted about Blinky, er, Scott, being arrested for alleged domestic abuse (pled out to lesser charge). A blogger friend then posted, with pictures of Scott and Constantine. When you clicked on Scott's name, you were directed to The Smoking Gun story (legit); when you clicked on Con's name, you were directed to a "Yahoo" site reporting on Constantine's barroom brawl with fans in a Trenton, NJ club, and his subsequent arrest. It had a mugshot and everything and TOTALLY looked real! I was seriously DUPED, I tell ya.

Upon closer scrutiny, however, I thought it odd that the placard you always see in mugshots, listing the vital information, was sort of FLOATING in mid air (with April 1 prominently displayed). Then I found it strange that the mugshot photo looked exactly like his AI publicity shot. The final giveaway was the address, which I finally noticed was yahoo.blogstop.com! Yes, go ahead, say it with me! DUH.

Hilariously, these aforementioned rabid fans went into hyper-attack mode and the rest is history.

All in all, it was pretty damn funny. *sigh* I wish he would have left the blogspot up. I thought it gave Constantine some serious rocker street cred.
