crazykelvin's weekly thought

[ Thought for September 18 - 24, 2002 ]

Hey CK Fans...

This is my last "weekly thought" coming out of Orlando, Florida as on Wednesday I will be on a plane (courtesy of to New York City. I'm very excited... going to live in the Big Apple is something I wanted to do since I was a little kid. Now I will get to live that dream - even if I only do it for a few months! If none of you have flown with JetBlue before, you have no idea what you are missing.
I first flew jetBlue when I travelled to New York City from Fort Lauderdale, Florida last year. I was already impressed with the price, I can't remember how cheap it was, but trust me -- it was cheap! Then when I got into the plane, I discovered that ALL the seats are leather and business class. Each seat has its own individual LCD television screen with 20 channels of DirecTV. The seats were comfortable, and the service was great. I totally recommend jetBlue to anyone!

Ghetto Fabulous
People from all over the world send me e-mails everyday. I get a lot of weird pictures, facts and jokes.. but everynow and then I get some things that I just look at and then scratch my head.
The following pictures were sent to me by "dasexyhuny" from Thornhill, Ontario:

Words of Wisdom
The following was sent to me by "Julia" from Toronto, Ontario:

Bill Gates' Speech To Mt. Whitney High School, Visalia, California.

Worthwhile reading for anyone. Love him or hate him, he sure hits the nail on the head with this! To anyone with kids of any age, or anyone who has ever been a kid, here's some advice Bill Gates recently dished out at a high school speech about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.

Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it
Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
Rule 3: You will NOT make $40,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.
Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping-they called it opportunity.
Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of ur parents' generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.
Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

New Fall Shows
FASTLANE on FOXThere are a whole bunch of new shows for this fall. I was very impressed with the FOX network's latest additions to their programming. Namely FASTLANE, and JOHN DOE. "Fastlane" is a very moderm "Miami Vice" styled show but in California. Lots of car chases, people getting shot and unlimited spending. I thought that it was very entertaining and kept me on the edge of my seat. Tiffany Thiessen (who dropped her middle name of Amber) is known from her roles on "Saved By The Bell" and "Melrose Place". I think she finally has found a role to play that is serious as opposed to the floozies she was playing before. That's just my opinion right now... it could change in the middle of the season. This is the FOX network, and I know they didn't cast her just for her "personality". The other show I was really captivated by was "John Doe". This show is about a guy who just wakes up in the Seattle area having no clue about who he is. But the twist is that he knows EVERYTHING... Like, how many indents on a golf ball (336), or what day/time it is right down to the second just by looking at the sun, and most importantly.. he knows how they get that soft, creamy caramel into a Caramilk bar!

Fear Factor Ice Cream What Is This?
If you just happened to stop by a Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream Parlour anytime soon, you will see that they have gone mad. They have partnered with NBC to create specialty ice creams to go with their shows. Such as Fear Factor. Even Will and Grace have their own specialty ice cream! What is the world coming to!?!? Anyways the Fear Factor Ice Cream has lots of mysterious green goo and spiders! MMmmmm -- aren't you just gonna rush on over to your nearest Baskin Robbin now??!


The Sunshine State Exodus
I didn't think this day would come so fast. My original plan in December 2000 was to move to Miami for a year, and then when I was done working, I would move promptly back to Toronto. Well, it didn't happen that way. I ended up staying, meeting lots of new friends and establishing a life of my own. It was only when a number of uncontrollable sequence of events happened that altered my original plan. Tomorrow I move out to New York City. I leave the state of Florida that has given me so much. I thank everyone that has made my journey here a memorable one. Thanks to Liza, Jolene, Marlon, Sarah, Janelle, Veronica, Brian, Chris, Kevin, Pearl, Phil, Jenn, Lisa, L.A, Carlos, Franz, Stevonnie, Tom, Subakhar, Susie, Jordan, Bruce, Dexter, Carl, Scott, Yoly and the many, many others that helped me. This is not good bye -- just see you later!


All the best,

Padma Lakshmi
Padma Lakshmi

From: Southern India
Currently Lives in: New York City, NY

She's beautiful, she's stunning, she can COOK! A man's total dream is on the Food Network creating dishes for your (taste buds') pleasure.

Born in Southern India, she had warm childhood memories of cooking with her female relatives as they carefully grated coconuts, shelled peas, and trimmed fresh mangoes. As she globe-trotted on photo shoots, she found comfort in preparing recipes from her childhood, and soon she branched into the cuisines of the countries she visited.

Padma spent much of her adolescence in the United States. She attended Clark University in Massachusetts and received a bachelor's degree in theater arts. Although she had wanted to be a model from a young age, her mother was determined that college should come first. "My mother's ideas on the subject were quite clear," Padma notes. "If I was beautiful at seventeen, I would be beautiful at twenty-one when I graduated from college."

Little Known Fact:
She's dating the ever controversal (and very married) Salmon Rushdie.
