My Television Acting Debut! In…”Out of the Woods: Bigfoot goes to a funeral” | WGN-TV

Go to http://wgntv.com/2015/09/17/out-of-the-woods-bigfoot-goes-to-a-funeral/ to view the video on WGN’s website! As an extra there was no speaking part, but I played the part of a “mourner” very well, I think.

Missing you.

I have been neglecting this blog and all of my readers, and I am sorry for that. I really have been thinking of you! Actually, for quite some time I was locked out of my account due to a new phone and 2-Step Authentication. I had backup codes but couldn’t find them. Finally I emailed WordPress with the details and proof of my identity and got things fixed. So I’m back! You don’t know how good it feels to have access to this blog again! Besides sharing interesting things and tidbits about my life, my Klout and EmpireKred scores have been suffering. LOL.

A lot has obviously happened since the last I posted. I am tired and won’t go in to everything now. I would like to say, however, that I remember how it was to be homeless. My heart goes out to those facing that situation. I help how I can, when I can, but it is not enough. I sometimes stand out among people on the CTA because I will smile and interact with homeless people riding the transit with me. There are times when others might move to another section of the bus or actually unboard the bus to wait for the next one on the same route–simply because the homeless individual was social. That being even when the homeless person did NOT have a traumatic scent. Just because of…being nice. 😦

 

Woman flashes judge during bond hearing

BROWARD COUNTY, Flor. — A woman was having her day in court when she displayed exhibit-A and exhibit-B.

Susan Surrette was in court in Broward County, Florida, for disorderly intoxication, when she flashed her breasts at the judge.

During a conversation with Judge John Hurley, Surrette said she was a hair dresser and had another job.

“You’re also what,” asked Hurley.

“Kayla Kupcakes.  I’m an escort too,” answered Surrette.

Surrette calls herself Kayla Kupckakes on her website, which advertises her as a porn star, an escort, and a private dancer.

Back in court, Surrette complained about being mistreated by police.

She pointed to several parts of her body before she lifted up her shirt and exposed her bare breasts.

“Oh my lord,” said Judge Hurley before he set her bond.

Man gets invited to stranger’s bachelor party by mistake — but he’s going anyways

Bachelor

SEATTLE — In a couple of weeks, Joey DiJulio is flying across the country for a bachelor party. Good times with old buds, right? Not exactly.

Joey doesn’t know who’s attending the party. In fact, he’s never even met the groom.

No, it’s not the plot of a new Vince Vaughn movie or a remake of the old Tom Hanks movie. Joey is flying from Seattle to Philadelphia to attend the bachelor party of Jeff Minetti, a man he’s never met, has no connection to and only spoken to twice via email.

How it happened

On Feb. 11, Joey received an email from an email address he didn’t recognize. The email thread began:

People,

Has anyone else noticed now that Jeff has been rocking the beard for a while – he looks like a middle aged Pavarotti? At times, he also has ventured into a bit of hipster phase. In…

My Brother Is A Real Person, Dammit!

My brother’s name is Duane. He is a bit eccentric, but he is my brother and I am proud of him! I would like to end rumors once and for all wondering if he is real or not. I am tired of seeing stories on WGN News and hearing comments on @ChiefOliver‘s radio show “Breaking Good“. My brother IS REAL, people! His name is DUANE! If you see him, do not be afraid! He is a regular guy. Just really hairy.
