    I was watching Channel Four's News Conference yesterday morning as I was shaking off the jetlag (okay, so I was only on East Coast time) from my vacation, when I heard Sen. Abel Maldonado refer to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger as his "BFF." 

    Really?  I rolled back on the DVR to see it again and it made me chuckle. 

    Gov. Busts Reporter's Chops During Report

    [LA] Gov. Busts Reporter's Chops During Report
    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger makes an impromptu appearance during a report and tells NBC's Mike Luery to knock off the "whacky" reporting. (Published Thursday, Feb. 26, 2009)

    Talking later to MY BFF Conan Nolan, host of News Conference, I told him I thought that was funny. He said, you know, if you think THAT's funny you should see Mike Luery's story from Friday when he was talking about the governor's approval rating. Schwarzenegger interruped Luery, our Sacramento reporter with KCRA who covers the Governor's office, as he recorded a standup about how hard it will be for the governor to sell his reform package "with higher taxes and a cap on spending..."

    Don't look now, Mike ... but ...  HE'S STANDING RIGHT BEHIND YOU! The governor poked his head in and said, "Don't listen to him, I don't know what he's talking about..."  as they both laughed at the timing.

    Of course it's on YouTube by now! Click the video box above to watch the clip.

    I think maybe everyone in Sacramento is a little punchy by now.  Maybe mandatory naptime should be part of the reform package, if they're going to put in the kinds of hours they have been.

    Like I said, I've been on vacation for a long time and I have missed out on so much!  I have a lot of catching up to do on the news from around the world and around the TV Station today.  Most notably, while I was gone, Tom Brady married supermodel Giselle Bundchen.  That's New England Patriots QB Tom Brady, not to be confused with my dog, whose name is also, oddly enough, Tom Brady.

     

    For those of you just tuning in, I will make mention of my dog as often as possible in order to show you cute pictures of him.  Anyway, this news of this wedding is disturbing on just so many levels.  I think women, and men, all around the world are feeling a little bit sadder that these two have taken eachother out of the single pool.

    {sigh}  Here's TMZ.com's picture of the bride ... we'll have to take their word for it.

    We wish them well, await any potential gorgeous children they may have, and I'm off to get caught up on my mail. 

    Oh, but while we're on the subject of marriage, did you see this story about the guy who tried to hide an engagement ring in a Wendy's frosty?

    Here's where it ended up:

    Bleck.  The good news is ... she got it back, a couple days later.  Kind of kills the romance, don't you think?  You can see the couple interviewed on the Today Showhere.  Or, just check out this Giselle Bundchen image gallery of her in a bunch of different swimsuits.  Tom Brady, by the way, is recovering from his knee injury and surgery and post-surgery infection, and his doctors say he is on track for a full recovery.  Yes, this is looking like a very good year for him!
