Staring Blankly

Friday, October 29th, 2004

Staring blankly. Falling asleep. Friday inertia has set in. The rain stopped yesterday afternoon after thoroughly soaking everything for several hours. It is now cold and soggy here. Cold weather makes me want to sleep. Everyone around here seems a little sluggish today. A co-worker suggested to me this morning that we all want to […]

Secrets of “24” Revealed!!

Thursday, October 28th, 2004

Okay, I lie, no secrets will be revealed. Got your attention though, didn’t I? According to Fox’s website, season four of “24” will start in January. They will have a premiere 2-hour event after a NFL playoff game, then will show another hour’s worth the next day, Monday, at its regular time slot. I. Can’t. […]

To The Chapel… Again

Saturday, October 23rd, 2004

Another wedding, another of The Husband’s co-workers. The wedding was held at the Episcopalian Saint-Barnabas-In-The-Ritzy-Neighborhood Church, in Paradise Valley. The church is beautiful. The grounds are beautiful. Even the orchestra is beautiful. We walked in and were handed programs. This particular program was jam-packed with psalms and prayers of which I am entirely ignorant. We […]

Dustin’ Off The Ol’ Blog

Monday, October 18th, 2004

Dang. It’s been awhile. I don’t have a good excuse, like… Cthulhu ate my keyboard, or whatever. I feel a numbered list coming on, like a song to a blushing ingenue in a romantic comedy. All The Shit I Meant To Blog About All Along But Didn’t Until Just This Minute ( In no particular […]

Post-VP Debate Hoopla

Tuesday, October 5th, 2004

So. Did you watch the debate tonight? I don’t think you could characterize this debate as a slam-dunk for either candidate. There was no tie-breaker to be had as the last debate, when W rolled his eyes like a child being pulled around Macy’s with his mother to pick out a frilly dress for his […]

Monday Football Round-Up Yeehaw

Tuesday, October 5th, 2004

I kinda forgot to write this yesterday, so… this is a very special Tuesday edition of Monday Football Round-Up Yeehaw! It was good, it was… pretty much all good. Wow. PITTSBURGH STEELERS It was a lovely day at Heinz Field. A lovely day to trounce the Bengals. Okay, I exaggerate slightly, there wasn’t a lot […]

Thoughts on a Weekend

Monday, October 4th, 2004

1. “Lost” is pretty goshdarned good. It would be even better if it wasn’t shown at the same time as “Smallville.” An oddly creepy/mysterious drama about weirdos stuck on an island or a teen-angst drama involving a superhero growing up… ah, the decisions we must make in life. 2. The Husband and I played tennis […]

TGIF, or Why Did The Cthulhu Cross the Road

Friday, October 1st, 2004

To destroy everyone on the other side, of course. Well. It’s about 4:20 PM on Friday. I’m pestering The One Beer on the Mud, reading pointless blog entries, and trying hard not to fall asleep. There are people calling and yelling at me, but… that’s not new, is it? Did I mention I’m at work? […]

Post-Debate Hooplah, Y’all

Friday, October 1st, 2004

So. Did you watch the debate last night? I confess I didn’t. I watched maybe 30-35 minutes of it, then The Husband and I went out to have dinner. (A night off for him is a rare and wonderful commodity.) What I did see I guess summarized well the thrust of the thing, according to […]
