I got into New York on Wednesday afternoon and have been messing around with friends.
Everyone’s watching football, which bores the hell out of me, so I’m posting a photo of my nephew Jackson.
My flight to Denver went just fine, but it took about two hours to get my bag.
It’s snowing like damn in Colorado. I just called my brother and they’re totally shut in there, not having to go work, with his loving wife and their newborn baby, and his in-laws who cooked a delicious turkey dinner. Those, poor, unfortunate bastards. Conveniently, this natural disaster is scheduled to end tomorrow at noon. That […]
I finally managed to get a decent photo of my nephew from my family.
I think it’s safe to say Mel Gibson is obsessed with violence. And not in a childish Quentin Tarantino way.
Today was really nice! Warm and sunny. I got out of the visitor center for the first time this week. I’ve had to work at the information desk all week (one fucker asked me if I was a receptionist). But I went out and walked around the prairie this afternoon. The sun was low and […]
I just found out a few minutes ago that my nephew was born this morning, a few weeks early but otherwise healthy. Yeah!
President Bush should add Norway to the “Axis of Evil”. They want to harvest Americans for bio-fuel. I suggest immediate regime change. 500,000 troops should do the trick. They can also keep the peace among Norway’s three distinct dialect groups, held in check only by the cushy socialist welfare regime of Jens Stoltenberg.
Well, Augusto Pinochet is finally dead. Good riddance, but I’m sorry he managed to evade all accountability for his actions. He won the race to brutalize Chile’s citizens before the communists got to brutalize them. But at least he freed up Chile’s market economy so they could export cyanide-laced grapes (in 1989) to the U.S. […]
I feel like a haven’t seen a real Christmas tree in forever.
I’ve always wanted to be a casting director for women’s jeans advertisements. All day I would look at the asses of otherwise perfect women but tell most of them, “I’m sorry, your ass just isn’t good enough.”
I’ve finished reading “Freakonomics” by L. Ron Hubbard… I mean Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner. It’s a book of nonsequitor statistical research by Levitt, who, among other things, claims he’s found a causal link between legal abortion and a drop in crime. He’s also shown that swimming pools are more dangerous than guns. […]
I’ve been slowly making my way through The Iraq Study Group Report. So far even I am shocked at just how grim the assessment is. President Bush has been acting like a kid who just got a Christmas gift he doesn’t really like, but has to pretend he does. He said it is “full of […]
I’ve rediscovered IFilm Viral Videos. They post clips from “The Daily Show”, which since I don’t subscribe to cable I never get to see except when I stay in a motel. I must sound like a damned donkey braying at it. Anyway, I’ve wasted a few hours over the last week watching it. I actually […]
This month’s National Geographic Magazine has an article about the ivory-billed woodpecker, once believed to be extinct, but reported recently in Arkansas. To see for myself, I looked at the only video evidence of its existence. It’s like watching a video of Bigfoot: it’s blurry and very brief. I slowed it down and, yes, it […]
I’m glad the weekend and that event is over with. Man, was it cold this weekend. It was about 20 degrees yesterday afternoon. I spent part of it on a street directing traffic. The evening before I spent three straight hours on a horse-drawn wagon. It was even colder. The event was well-attended. It’s funny […]
West Branch’s “A Christmas Past” event is this weekend. I was stressing out over my little part of it: recruiting volunteers and setting up our annual popcorn and hot cider service. I was stressed mostly because of the lack of direction from my boss and coworkers and because I had to recruit a lot of […]
