Feelin' Kinda Poorly Today



Don't have much on my mind this morning.

My muscles are stiff and my joints are sore.

And my coffee don't taste so good any more.

Sorry 'bout all that bitchin' and moanin' --

Off now for my daily walk.



The mask used by Michael Myers in the original Halloween was actually a Captain Kirk mask painted white.


On this day, July 23 in 1984, 21-year-old Vanessa Williams gave up her Miss America title, the first resignation in the pageant's history, after Penthouse magazine announced plans to publish nude photos of the beauty queen in its September issue. Williams originally made history when she became the first black woman to win the Miss America crown.

Miss New Jersey, Suzette Charles, the first runner-up and also an African American, assumed Williams' tiara for the two months that remained of her reign.

Vanessa Williams rebounded from the Miss America scandal and went on to a successful entertainment career as an actress and recording artist, performing on Broadway as well as in movies and television and releasing a number of popular albums.
