"tid bits"

*I'd read a bit of this article on cage wrestling, but I missed the part about how it's thriving in two of the three midwestern towns in which I grew up.
But in Sioux Falls and other small cities and towns of the Great Plains - Fargo, N.D.; Rochester, Minn.; Marshfield, Wis.; Sioux City and Des Moines - cage fighting is making a comeback, drawing hundreds, even thousands of spectators to fairgrounds, small arenas and, most disturbingly to city officials, the parking lots of bars.

I still lament the time Drone and I were too stuffed from Day After Christmas Dinner to go see midget and women's wrestling at a bar near my parents' house. [thanks for the info, K]

*I pretty much love all things that can be described as "so bad it's good." Which is why I adore the movie Glitter, questionable street cart hot dogs, and the Local Paper. This crappy writing contest is genius.

*And last but not least, the moment you have all been waiting for, Joan Rivers was fucking awesome. She's performing in New York City once a week for quite a bit longer, so if you live here I'd highly suggest going to see her. Your $25 ticket will get you a solid hour of guilty, un-PC laughter and will benefit Joan's favorite charities, God's Love We Deliver and Guide Dogs for the Blind (and, yes, she makes ample fun of both gay people and the blind, and pretty much every other person you can think of.) Oh and the date part wasn't too shabby either, but in an uncharacteristic moment of blog shyness I can't bring myself to say anything about it.
