Dreaming Of An Iraq Exit Strategy

This clown (Actual photo from Harvard's actual site. You can't make this stuff up.) spoke at my alma mater today. The future warfighters seemed equally impressed with their Commander-in-Chief.

Cub reporter Ryan Smith gets the scoop.

Fly, Eagles, Fly

What a way to honor your mother. What is it about the Birds that makes people go krazy? E-A-G-L-E-S...EAGLES! I feel like running around the block naked.

Mmmmm...$0.001 Par Value Stock

As a follow up to an earlier post, one of our favorite restaurants is going public. I know I shouldn't get emotionally involved with a stock, but like a barbacoa burrito, I really want a piece of this one. I did a little research on getting a slice of the IPO pie. Unlike the Google offering that bucked the trend, most IPOs are limited to insiders and people with the last name "Gates". Here is a quick lesson on why you will have better luck standing in line for the cilantro-lime rice instead of the stock. ¿Quiere guacamol con eso?

Who's Dumb Now?

Little orange cat appeared outside the sliding glass door, again, the other day and caused quite a stir in our normally docile hierarchy. Turns out our trio of indoor cats gets wound up on the sight of a visiting cat due to a phenomenon known as redirected aggression. And to think that I almost lost my leg trying to separate them.

Editor's note: Link is to a Colorado animal shelter called Dumb Friends League. Don't get me wrong, they have a great and admirable cause. But like AT&T and IBM, they've outlived their name. Time to drop the 'dumb'.

Thanks For The Turkey

Four gallons of boiling oil and ten-thousand calories later, our Thanksgiving feast finally draws to a close. Approved for sober adult use only. Take the fun out of it, why don't you.

Just In Time For Turkey

I apologize for the prolonged absence. I set out to post daily, but alas, I have missed that mark. In the past 21 days of no posts, I have accomplished the following:
1. Purchased this little morsel. Because five dozen fake mice under the couch is barely enough.
2. Discovered another restroom at work.
3. Drank an Amp. Got addicted. Bought another Amp from the vending machine at work. Got a headache. Dude, I did the new Dew and it is one fine pick-me-up.
4. Cried for three days straight when I heard "Arrested Development" was cancelled. But for "The Simpsons" and baseball, FOX is again the worst network on the planet. Damn your myopia, Rupert.
So at four major accomplishments in just under three weeks, you can see that I am pretty darn busy out here in meatspace. But we're back, people. Thanks for caring.
