Annika's Journal Farewell Tour: Part VII, The Curse Of Annika's Journal

December 9, 2004: I post a poem I wrote about Jerry Orbach.

December 28, 2004: Jerry Orbach dies.

Coincidence? You tell me.

March 4, 2006: I post a review of Butterflies Are Free, starring Edward Albert.

September 22, 2006: Edward Albert dies.

Coincidence? Who knows?

November 18, 2005: I call Steve Irwin a goofball in a post about turtles.

September 4, 2006: Steve Irwin is killed by a stingray, which is a distant relative of the turtle.

Coincidence? Is this starting to freak you out?

September 27, 2006: I write a post about Screech from Saved By The Bell.

November 15, 2006: Slater from Saved By The Bell is eliminated from Dancing With The Stars.

Coincidence? Maybe. But maybe it's not. Did you ever think about that?

I must confess. I have never thought about it, and most likely never will again.

A stingray is a "distant relative" of the turtle? Yikes, but yer stretchin' there.

More spookier though: On April 26, 2007 you posted about "weather futures". The next day it rained like a bitch. Dammit, Annika! You and your @#$% blog!

I'm really gonna miss you. **sniffle**

You know, Annika, with Screech it got a WHOLE lot worse than anything having to do with Slater. How could you forget the release of "Saved by the Smell" on November 16? That's officially a two-fer for poor Dustin. You've got SPOOKY powers!

Gonna miss your blog, Annika! If you do last one "Wednesday Is Poetry Day," here's one you might enjoy:

Here I sit, broken-hearted;
Tried to fart, but only parted
My new pants from all the strain.
The moral is: All strain, no gain.

Do I gots the skillz to pay the billz, or what?

With posts like Cameron's, maybe you do need a break...

Posted by: shelly on May. 5, 2007

Dammit Shelly, you're in between me and the target. Get down before I Dick Cheney your ass.

Cameron, survey says......NO!

Posted by: Casca on May. 5, 2007

So, I'm thinking, how much would you charge us to write about Strawman, Annika?

I think we can get up a pretty good kitty here.

Posted by: shelly on May. 5, 2007

More Screech here.

Posted by: annika on May. 5, 2007

Okay, okay. I apologize for the last poem. Here are some moderately better, definitely cleaner, poems. Well, the first four, anyway. Feel free to ignore the fifth since, um, you've already seen it.

That link brought up a Paris Hilton vid first, but I found the Screech-ness. It looks like he is due for a "blanket party".

D'oh! I'm a jackass. I didn't know that you had already seen the post, Annika.

Posted by: ccwbass on May. 5, 2007

Well Bass, at least you're in good company.

One of my friends, who teaches high school English, recently e-mailed, "Reaching 40 and realizing that you still find body humor hilarious is one of life's great surprises." I'm in that camp.

You can't be serious about giving up your post!! But based on your writing history, can you dedicate your last days by writing a LOT about the democrats running for POTUS.

Posted by: Ed on May. 7, 2007

Okay, Anni, what the hell's with you missing your last target? You did Orbach in, you did Albert in, and Irwin... well, we all knew it was gonna come at the hands... er, barbed tails... of some animal, though that doesn't change the influence your karma-cursing post had. But Screech?? You freakin' missed Screech??!! Of all people??

Keep posting, goddammit! If one doesn't do 'im in, keep shooting!

"Get down before I Dick Cheney your ass..."

Jesus, Cas! You could've said "Vice President your ass", but noooooo... you gotta choose the verbiage that causes spit takes and rereads. Now I gotta wipe this orange juice off my monitor...

I live to serve.

Posted by: Casca on May. 7, 2007

no.........I think I'll miss the picture of feet on the scale, a fetish I just learned I had.

very nice
