Friday Fragments

Happy Who the Hell Put Bush Back in Office Anniversary Day

  • A tiny icon started flashing over my Instant Messenger Tray Icon last night and it's still flashing this morning. I'm not sure what it means, but I'm going to presume at this point that Running Man is low on radioactive isotopes (and/or multivitamins) and needs to recharge soon or my contacts will be lost.

  • Here's a picture of a typical night in the BU household -- BU is multitasking between watching LOST and writing zanily satirical news updates while Booty sleeps on her fat ass and Amber eats the venetian blinds cord.

  • They found more bin Laden tapes threatening violence, but the U.S. Threat level is not going to go up. I think this warrants at least a Hot for a couple days .

  • Two nights ago, I had a dream where I was in a recording studio writing a fanfare by telling the studio musicians what to play and then transcribing their sounds on paper. I had a perfect, accurate score until I suddenly realized I was dreaming and the score disappeared. Now, all I can remember is that it started in 3/4, went to 3+4/4 and had some guy playing agogo bells (though in the dream he was actually playing pitched woodblocks).

  • I don't smile, I just grin. I'm not even sure if I know how to smile correctly.

  • If you are a visitor from Starcraft/Warcraft-Land, you might be interested to know that we released Footmen Frenzy 4.1 last weekend, and it can be downloaded over at www.nohunters.com. I spent this past week updating the strategy guide for the new version, and only have one more page to go. It should be done by tomorrow -- you can find that here .

  • Yesterday, while driving down the Toll Road, I saw a professionally-made magnetic sign on the back of a utility truck that said, "YEILD TO JESUS". It's a shame that someone would spend so much money on a sign only to forget about spell-check. I also think the driver was getting too big for his britches, because he was camped in the left lane going 55 miles per hour, forcing everyone to yeild to him.

  • Last night after a bout of heavy lifting, I watched This is Spinal Tap with Kim while eating Quiznos subs for dinner. It was amusing in a clever, understated way, although I like Christopher Guest's other mockumentaries better. I cannot confirm or deny that the second movie of the night starred Hillary Duff, but if it hypothetically did, I was probably forced to watch it at gunpoint.

  • Quzinos subs are really quite tasty. I wish they would bring back the "We Love the Subs" monsters in their commercials though. Babies with lips that talk like adults creep me out.

  • I picked up Mitch Hedberg's first CD, Strategic Grill Locations, which was very hit or miss. On his other CD, you could tell he was "on" for most of the night. Here he's pretty nervous and doesn't always tell the funniest jokes. Most of them can be found on the DVDs that accompany the better CD, mitch all together so stick with that one.

  • I also got the soundtrack to the musical, Avenue Q which has Sesame-Street-style puppets singing such amusing tracks as If you were gay, that'd be okay (385KB MP3), Everyone's a little bit racist (496KB MP3), and The internet is for porn (636KB MP3).

  • I still have an annoying tickly cough. It reminds me of my last two weeks in Blacksburg in 2001 when I became allergic to something in the air and spent every single minute of every single day ticklishly coughing. I could barely get any sleep at night and skipped most of my classes so I wouldn't get stared at for being annoying (though I probably would not have gone anyhow because I was such a fine upstanding student). To this day I'm not sure what caused the coughing down there, but it went away as soon as I moved back up to northern Virginia.

  • This weekend, the plan is to work some to make up for the hours I've taken off recently, and then have people over for a dinner of roast lamb and fun games on Saturday night. Maybe I'll finally get around to cleaning out the storage room as well, but don't hold your breath. Have a good weekend!

  • Spelling bee brings out the stalkers
    Chupacabra shot in Texas
    Double your wealth -- get married!
