Thing I won't be doing in the next few weeks:

–Paying to see Adam Sandler in drag.

–Judging the "Hottest Girl in America" contest at the Ugly Monkey, sponsored by Girls Gone Wild.

–Seeing Mini Kiss, the all-little-people Kiss cover band play Indiana Live! Casino (at least, not until there's a Vienna Boys Choir cover band with all 6-ft.-and-overs).

–Playing any Monopoly game that lets a credit card count your money for you.

–Grooving to Justin Bieber's Christmas album.

–Playing any Facebook game (Besides Words With Friends and Make Your Status Seem Like Everything in Your Life is Wonderful).

–Reading a heartwarming holiday tale by Glenn Beck.

–Sneaking another Virginia Kay's donut (It closed shortly after I reviewed it–positively–in IBJ).

–Keeping up with anything remotely Kardashian.

How about you? Anything must-miss events on your agenda?

Your thoughts?

  • No Politics!
    I'll make sure to miss any upcoming Republican "debates."
    • Mini Kiss is Awesome
      Mini Kiss is awesome!
    • You wont see...
      You wont see the Colts win. :(
    • Debates
      Why Lawgoddess would you want to miss the Republican Candidate debates? It must be due to the idiot liberal media asking irrelevant questions. All the candidates on that stage make our current president look like the joke that he is. Lou try to have a sense of humor...Adam Sandler is hilarious! He makes going to an opera, probably your choice of entertainment, seem worse than a funeral.
      • Jeb
        Don't jump to conclusions. I'm one of the few defenders of "The Waterboy."

        And I love the "probably your choice of entertainment" line. If you haven't already, perhaps you should expand your horizons and give opera a try (see my review of IO's latest production in the upcoming IBJ).
      • Well.
        As much as I'd like to mock Jeb for bashing the "liberal media" and at the same time loving a comedian who catches a fish in his butt crack (Zohan) I'm going to focus and stay on topic.

        One thing I'd love to miss is the next Twilight installment coming out this month. I'll bet that my wife has other plans for me though....
      • Kim Kardashian
        I know almost nothing about the Kardashian clan and am proud of it! Same goes for the Jersey Shore clan.
      • My choice of entertainment
        Many years ago, I had an intern who was very into rap music and who tried to educate me by playing NWA's "Straight Outta Compton", all the while saying I "needed" to hear NWA because "someone like you you probably likes James Taylor" don't let the "opera" and "your choice of entertainment" comment bother you Lou, Jed's dislike of opera is no doubt tied to his immigration politics ("why cain't everbuddy jus speak Anglish")...I like opera, James Taylor, and I too would defend "The Waterboy", and Sandler's "Hannukah Song" as for what I won't be doing, "Black Friday" shopping and listening to NWA (I discovered after listening that I did not need to listen to it after all, but I still hear from the intern now and then)...
      • Lots not to do
        A must miss list for me includes reading or watching any more news coverage of the Penn State scandal. Attending a gun & knife show. Getting in line at 5am for Black Friday bargains. Eating a McRib sandwich. Caring about Lindsay Lohan's latest court date. Wondering who's dumber - the NBA owners or the players. Listening to an All Christmas Music radio station.
      • What I will not see
        "Annie" or anything else by the politically connected/publicly funded CRT.

        What I will see is NoExit's "Nutcracker".

      1. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

      2. If you only knew....

      3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

      4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

      5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
