The Grumpy Bear Conspiracy Revisited

Monday, November 22nd, 2004

If you have read this blog before, you will know that I unearthed a conspiracy a few months ago regarding Grumpy Bear, a member of the Care Bears. Grumpy Bear has been phased out of our stores while other Care Bears are permitted to be sold by retailers. Why is this, you ask? Why single […]

Monday Ponderables

Monday, November 22nd, 2004

Hmm, I am so way behind in blogging… I’ll try to catch up. Start up the band, it’s a numbered list! 1. If I ran “Monday Night Football” I would have a naked NFL player run into the arms of Nicollette Sheridan for the opening skit. The whole business is tiresome. We went through all […]

Bite Me

Tuesday, November 16th, 2004

Tired of people. Tired of doctors that make you wait an hour. Tired of school. Tired, tired, tired. Explanation: Is there some sort of conservative campaign going on against PBS that I don’t know about? Seriously, I’m asking. If any random person who comes across this could tell me what the deal is, I would […]

Another Useless (But Amusing!) Quiz

Sunday, November 14th, 2004

Huh. There’s quite a bit of truth in this. I wouldn’t say smoking pot is “okay in my book.” It should be legal, but I think people should probably avoid it. Gambling is pretty much the same way. Keep your money and keep off the grass and slot machines, I think you will find you’re […]

Seduced By The Dark Side? Well, Okay

Saturday, November 13th, 2004

I always kinda knew it. The problems all stemmed from that Darth Vader action figure carrying case I had as a youngling. Okay, I still have it, shuddup. You were destined to have a Red Lightsaber. Red is the color of fire and blood, so it isassociated with energy, war, danger, strength,power, and determination as […]

All Work and No Play Make Aemilia A Very Dull Girl

Friday, November 12th, 2004

Oh, fizzlenip. I still have forty minutes left at work on this Friday afternoon. What to do… ah ha! I’ll blog! Yeeees… No boss. She caught a case of “Veteran’s flu” and took the day off. Supposedly a lot of people around here were going to have the day off, but most of them showed […]

“The Incredibles” and Other Subjects For Consideration

Friday, November 12th, 2004

“The Incredibles” turned out to be great. I enjoyed the story and the characters were well-written. The thing I especially enjoyed was the design of it all. There was a cool retro-50s feel to the design of the buildings, furniture, and vehicles which matched the Bondesque musical score. The work Pixar has done with hair […]

Hooplah, or Hoopla

Thursday, November 11th, 2004

Spurred by a comment made (by someone other than a good friend or family member — the blog is moving up in the world?) I checked out Sports Illustrated’s college basketball predictions. They are NOT kind to the U of A’s possibilities this season. I had forgotten they’d been ousted in the first round of […]

Veteran’s Day Variety

Thursday, November 11th, 2004

Happy Veteran’s Day to one and all. Thank you to our veterans and thank you to our employers who have given us this day off. We all needed it, I’m sure. The Husband actually has to work today, which I think is odd, because his boss is a former Marine. Huh. I plan to do […]

Positive Press for Pittsburgh

Monday, November 8th, 2004

I don’t subscribe to Sports Illustrated. I have bought copies here and there during my life, but I can’t see myself subscribing to a publication that has that swimsuit issue every year. If women really want to be photographed in bathing suits that’s fine, I just don’t really want to pick up that issue. I […]
