Honey Ginger Party

Thwacking Thursday to you all, my little gingersnaps. Let me just preface this post by saying that Mr. G is working late on some movie that I'm not allowed to discuss, and therefore I'm home alone, with the kids in bed and have now consumed an entire bottle of wine by my lonesome. Anything I say from here on out may be blamed on that bottle of wine. If only my computer auto-corrected like my iPhone, my life would be so much easier. But I digress...

In the news, someone is stealing a sh*t-load of bees and they should stop it. How does one steal a 500 pound beehive from a restaurant anyway? Never mind, I don't want to know. Don't you know bees are more likely to sting gingers than non-gingers? It's true! Keep me away from those stolen bees. I'm not going to say it's Winnie the Pooh, but I wouldn't overlook any suspect at this point. I never did like him anyway.

500 Pound Beehive Stolen From Outside Houston Restaurant

Beehive Stolen Restaurant

Americans have enough to contend with: stubbornly high unemployment, the ongoing war in Afghanistan and high gas prices. And now, just when you thought things couldn't get any worse, beehive theft is on the rise.

KHOU in Houston reports that unidentified thieves loaded a 500 pound beehive valued at $1,000 into their truck and stole it from outside a local restaurant.

The restaurant's chef told KLTV the thieves must have known what they were doing because they struck when it was rainy and cold outside, a time when bees are least active.

According to KHOU, this is far from an isolated incident. Harris County Beekeepers Association member Jennifer Scott told the station these kinds of thefts are on the rise because the creatures, who create pricey raw honey, are in short supply.

"Oh yes,” Scott said. “Beekeepers are very careful now where they keep their bees, because bees are stolen.”

The Mother Nature Network also reported on the hive stealing trend back in 2010.

Remember yesterday's Russell Brand iPhone-snatching fiasco? Well he tweeted about it. He claims what he did was a tribute to Steve Job's memory by not wanting to see anyone use an iPhone irreverently. I must agree with you Russell, my old chap (that's the wine talking). Taking a picture of you does fall under "using an iPhone irreverently". I shall vow to never disgrace mine own iPhone with your picture.

Russell Brand I Didn't Commit a Crime, I Honored Steve Jobs


Russell Brand
just kinda, sorta 'fessed up to the whole iPhone snatch and toss in New Orleans ... hilariously blaming Steve Jobs for the whole thing.

Brand just tweeted, "Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iphone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory."

TMZ broke the story ... Brand was accused of ripping an iPhone out of the hands of a paparazzo in New Orleans Monday night ... and then firing the phone at an office building ... shattering a window.

Cops said they were investigating the incident. Brand has since offered to pay for the window he broke.

In Royalty news, Prince Harry explains why he's still single. Like the Honey Badger, I don't give a sh*t about his reasons. Honestly, is it too much to hope that Prince Harry will marry someone soon who also has the MC1R mutation (yes we are mutants!) so he can start churning out some beautiful ginger babies?

On a completely, yet not altogether unrelated note, I saw a ginger man riding a bike today, and my first thought was... I sure hope his bike-riding is not hurting his little swimmers, so he can produce more gingers. Then I thought, "this can't be a normal thought process". I may have a mental illness. Possibly Gingivitis?

Though women around the world are more than happy to prove him wrong, Prince Harry says it's hard to find prospective partners willing to put up with the demands of his royal lifestyle.

In an interview with CBS News about his recent tour through the Caribbean and South America (during which he feted Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee), Harry admitted his life is a far cry from the fairy-tale people imagine it to be.

"The job that [being a royal] entails--I mean look at me. I'm 27 years old," Harry told CBS. "And not so much searching for someone to fulfill the role, but obviously, you know, finding someone that would be willing to take it on."

Currently single, the busy prince's most recent serious relationship was with on-again off-again girlfriend Chelsy Davy, although the pair split ways for good in 2009.

Harry admitted that even his brother Prince William--who has happily settled into married life with Duchess Kate--still questions his contentment with his position in the spotlight. Said the prince, "There's a lot of times that both myself and my brother wish we were completely normal."

Hey, WTF?!! I really, really don't want to ride with Hitler. I don't care if his main Nazi doctor is a distant relative of mine. (sadly, true story) I have no attachment to that "doctor" whatsoever. So... who will carpool with me? Twins anyone?

And that's all the time I have for today. Sign up today for the Honey Badger Party (I think Steven Colbert is the nomination) if you haven't already. Oh, and one more thing...

Ian Mckellan and Patrick Stewart had no idea how to play chess when they appeared in X-Men 2.

They were required to play chess for the last scene of the movie. It was supposed to be one of the simplest but it ended up being one of the most problematic. It went something like this, the director Bryan Singer set up the chess table for them and asked them to play. Ian (Magneto) and Patrick (Xavier) just looked at each other and admitted they didn’t know how to play.

The director just rolled his eyes and he brought someone to teach them. To their surprise it was a Canadian grand master! He taught Ian and Patrick the basic moves and ran them through the game rules. The chess player stayed all day and was excited to be on a movie set for the first time.

Bryan Singer couldn’t believe he had hired two actors that didn’t know how to play chess. At the end, Xavier wins the game. You can see the scene here




  1. Although this post has nothing to do with books, I'm excited to discover another local book blogger--there aren't enough of us! I'm adding you to my feed reader right after I post this comment :-).

    1. Yay! I know!!! I have a link on my sidebar to the book reviews I've done. I'm ALWAYS reading whenever I get a spare minute. Thank you for adding me to your feeder! I'll be sure to share the link when I do the book giveaway. :)

  2. Prince Harry marry? Never! Russel Brand is crazy...just look at his eyes! Very funny post, of course it's the wine talkin'

    1. He's 27 now, and a fine specimen of the male ginger race. It's a waste if he doesn't share those genes. Imagine if he shuns birth controls so he can pop out tons of kids, a la The Weasleys! ;)

  3. Someone stopped my kid on the street the other day and proclaimed him "mini Ron Weasley". I've never been prouder. Rock on with your Ginger self!

    1. Yay for having a mini Ron Weasley!! I of course have always been Team Weasley! I get so excited when I'm out and spot beautiful ginger kids!

  4. I have to think that the honey thieves will get caught. I mean is there a fence or pawn shop you can unload something like that? If not, won't it be apparent who stole the hive when all of a sudden someone starts showing up with designer honey to sell?

    Prince Harry will hopefully find someone nice like his mom - but didn't the paparrazzi kill his mom? Hmmm maybe he should stay single.

    GOD I love the Honey Badger.

    1. Perhaps Prince Harry can just become a sperm donor? (though obviously not at that International Sperm Bank that no longer accepts ginger sperm)

  5. LMAO!!! Harry is totally the hunky brother now- something happened about ten years ago and the rolls reversed. I blame Kate for killing Williams good looks. The Diana gene totally kicked in for Harry when he hit about 20.

    Want to hear a pathetic confession? When I was 12 I was so in love with Prince William I actually tried to bully my parents into sending me to boarding school in England? For a whole year I campaigned, and failed. My teeth thank their consistant no.

  6. russel is going to pay for the window? What about the phone?

  7. Prince Harry... is one of the most handsome gingy's... I am a strawberry blond and was delighted that mine turned out to have brown hair! not all boys can do the red-head thing! but he does it fine!

  8. LOL! Hilarious....bee stealing? Irreverent use of an iPhone? Prince Harry! You are so so funny....Love it!
