Monday Football Round-Up Yeehaw

Monday, September 27th, 2004

I have to be brief, I have a paper to write on Vikings. No, not the Dante Culpepper-Vikings, the real Vikings. ARIZONA CARDINALS I guess I’ll start here because we watched this game first yesterday. I suppose we should be happy they managed to keep Michael Vick caged up, but overall, the game was hard […]

Goin’ To The Chapel

Saturday, September 25th, 2004

No, not me. Been there, done that. The Husband and I attended a wedding at a very nice Catholic church in Scottsdale. The church was indeed nice, if a little garish. They had obviously spent a lot of money in its construction and wanted to be certain everyone knew it. It had a number of […]

Of School and Things

Warning: The following is a rant. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Professors are like great pieces of art. They are nice and shiny and important and are usually roped off from the public. Attempts to view them more closely or make contact with them are met with reprobation from a stern-looking docent. Seriously. If […]

Well That Sucked

Monday, September 20th, 2004

I would be remiss if I went to bed without commenting on tonight’s “CSI: Miami” season premiere. Warning: Spoiler ahead, for those who haven’t watched the episode yet. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat??? Yes, we all knew someone was going to die in this episode. We all knew it wasn’t going to be David Caruso’s character. (He has many, […]

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow: It’s… Okay

Monday, September 20th, 2004

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. You don’t want to know if the movie is “okay.” You can get that much from your mush-mouthed co-worker at the water cooler. If I could think of another word I would certainly use it. I’ve been thinking about it a great deal, and I can only think of… […]

Monday Football Round-Up Yeehaw

Monday, September 20th, 2004

It’s a mixed bag this week, so… let’s start with the bad. PITTSBURGH STEELERS Aiieeee. It really pays to stock up on antacids if you’re a Steeler fan. And booze. And comfort food. The Steelers lost to the Ravens, 30-13. The Ravens were able to have way too much luck with their rushing game, and… […]

Whoa. I Mean, WHOA.

Is anyone out there watching “Nip/Tuck” on F/X? I watched some of the first season, but haven’t had the opportunity to watch any this year because we are sans cable. I happened to be over at my parents’ house last night so I watched it with them. I would like to begin this critique with […]

Politics is Chaotic… At Least If You’re A Democrat

Wednesday, September 15th, 2004

I gave an hour and a half to the Kerry-Edwards cause tonight. I might have been there longer, but I was… late. Yep. Pretty much. Don’t ask. Wardrobe malfunction. No, really. But don’t ask. The East Valley campaign office is hopping. There were dozens and dozens of people flocking in and out. They don’t seem […]

Yessir, it’s finally football season! Throw out the pigskin and haul down the uprights, it’s time for a Monday Football Round-Up Yeehaw! This is how Monday Football Round-Up Yeehaw will work from this day forward: We will talk about teams Aemilia likes. And only those teams. Okay, there may be some discussion of teams that […]

Terror That Lurks in the Night

Sunday, September 12th, 2004

About a month ago, I acquired a small collection of Beanie Babies, thanks to Happy Meals. (I’m 26 going on 3.) Without any better notion of what to do with them, I put them all in front of my computer monitor on my desk. Basking in the warm glow of Windows XP, they lived a […]
