One of the things about having a link blog with a variety of topics that come up in a Google search is that you get email from the media asking for more info on certain posts.
I am currently working on a new daytime television talk show to be hosted by Food Network Queen Rachael Ray. It is set to air in September 2006. We are looking to do a segment on the worst gifts that people have ever received. While doing research on this topic, I came upon your website and I noticed some interesting stories posted on the worst gifts ever received. These types of stories are exactly what we are looking for.
I was hoping you might be able to help me out by passing on my information to the people who made submissions on your website. We would need people that would be interested in attending a taping of the show and sharing their story with Racheal Ray. You can find more info. about the show at rachaelrayshow.com.
Any letters, photos, and videos (VHS or DVD) can be sent to:

I think he’s talking about this post from December 2004 when I received a rubberband ball as a gift from a fellow coworker. If you want a chance to be on Rachel Ray’s by sharing a story of a horrible gift you received, now’s your chance. It wouldn’t be the first time one of the readers of this blog made it on television.
Could be helpful if you need to know what ROTFLMAOSTC means.
DAPHNE, Ala. — Worried about the safety of her family during a stormy Memorial Day trip to the beach, Clara Jean Brown stood in her kitchen and prayed for their safe return as a strong thunderstorm rumbled through Baldwin County, Alabama.
But while she prayed, lightning suddenly exploded, blowing through the linoleum and leaving a blackened area on the concrete. Brown wound up on the floor, dazed and disoriented by the blast but otherwise uninjured.
This is my favorite part of the story:
She said ‘Amen’ and the room was engulfed in a huge ball of fire. The 65-year-old Brown said she is blessed to be alive.
No, the people whose houses were not blown to smithereens by the wrath of God are blessed. A blast of lightning that throws you to the floor is God telling you to STFU with the praying every minute.
Counting down until the season 6 premiere. I’m only about halfway through season 4 so I should be caught soon enough.
The Drug Enforcement Administration publishes a monthly bulletin that details objects that have been used to smuggle drugs such as fire extinguishers, model rockets, and my favorite, liquid methamphetamine smuggled in a vehicle’s windshield washer and coolant resevoirs.
