Monday, 23 May, 2005

Today was Gary's first day as a "kept man." He was on call from Friday morning at 7:00 a.m. to noon on Sunday, at which point we celebrated by turning off the pager and going out for dim sum. He doesn't start work at Jefferson until after the 4th of July holiday.

I figured he could sleep in and take it easy today, but he was out and about getting a new cell phone account set up - I'll keep my number but he has to change his - going to Ikea, Lowe's, Target, SuperFresh and generally running errands.

Yesterday afternoon we both worked around the house. I built a new set of shelves in the garage for all of the old paint and building supply buckets. I cleared all of the stuff off the platform near the house and we moved Gary's exercise machines out there. I also vaccuumed the garage floor. Well, I shop-vac'd it.

I also went to Lowe's and got six bags of mini marble for the wine cellar floor. I thought I would need ten, but I only bought six. Guess what? I need ten.

[At least I estimated correctly.]

You just can't make this stuff up. I'm going to highlight a few phrases from this story and you tell me what parts are in any way surprising:

Members of Bobby Brown's Entourage Stabbed

ATLANTA - Two members of singer Bobby Brown's entourage were hospitalized for treatment of knife wounds after a fight at a restaurant early Monday, police said.

Brown was at Justin's Restaurant and Bar performing during a weekly open microphone event. Two members of Brown's group were either cut or stabbed following a verbal altercation about 1:30 a.m., police Sgt. Kevin Iosty said.

Authorities were looking for the suspects, who drove away. The cause of the fight was not immediately known.

Justin's Restaurant and Bar is owned by rapper and producer Sean "P. Diddy" Combs.

Attorney Vincent L. Dimmock said Combs and his entertainment company, Bad Boy Worldwide Entertainment Group, are cooperating with the criminal investigation.

Dimmock, who previously represented Brown when the entertainer was accused of hitting [wife Whitney] Houston, said he believed Monday was the second time the singer performed at the restaurant's open-microphone night.

Brown, 36, is the subject of a new eight-episode reality TV show, "Being Bobby Brown," that will debut June 30 on cable television channel Bravo.

The show will also feature Houston, who has had problems of her own. In March, the 41-year-old singer checked herself into a rehabilitation center for the second time in a year.

So Bobby and his posse were out on the town at P. Diddy's place when a fight of unknown origins breaks out and two people are stabbed. I wonder if they'll have this kind of action in his upcoming "reality" show.

[One person's nightmare is another person's reality.]
