Feed the Snark

Thursday, January 27th, 2005

Dang. This was just one of those days. I guess nearly everyone in the household got hit with a dose of the unluck today. One of us had to pay a $1800 car repair bill. Another had a generally rotten day at work. And me? I didn’t go to class tonight because my mother forgot […]

24: Noon to 1 PM

Tuesday, January 25th, 2005

Okay, I think I have shaken free of my post-Steeler-loss depression. Life may return to normal. Explosions: 2 Kidnappings: None. In fact, our two that had been kidnapped were freed, so there are definitely hostage-spots open on the show. Send your applications now and avoid the rush. Approximate Body Count:42.5. Seriously, I lost count when […]

Things. And Other Things. And Entirely Different Things, To Go With Those First Two Kinds of Things.

Tuesday, January 25th, 2005

Was this the most depressing day of the year? Someone somewhere that was quoted on the news (I don’t have a research budget on this blog, okay?) worked out some formula that named January 24th the most depressing day of the year. It was a tad depressing, sure, but it was a Monday. Whoever that […]

Open Letter to the Lady Who Just Called Me

Thursday, January 20th, 2005

Dear Lady: To clarify, I am not “just the girl who answers the phone.” I do indeed know what I’m talking about, and if you hadn’t been brought up in a barn you would have paused for a breath in your diatribe and allowed me the opportunity to demonstrate my considerable knowledge of our membership […]

The Day in Which Aemilia Comes Full Circle

Tuesday, January 18th, 2005

Interesting bit of irony today. I had my first class meeting of the “Age of Democratic Revolutions.” We’re talking American, French, and Latin American revolutions here. Good stuff. I expect to enjoy it thoroughly, and I might actually make some use of the ability to read French. C’est tres bien. Anyway, that’s not ironic. What […]

Uh, Hello? Is this the Canadian Immigration Office?

Monday, January 17th, 2005

Yes, that’s what I wanted to post about. This is what I NEEDED to post about. There are new reports surfacing that the United States government is secretly sending reconnaissance planes over Iran to locate possible military targets that can be taken out by guided missles or commando attacks. They are specifically targeting installations of […]

And Now, a Post From Reality

Monday, January 17th, 2005

Okay, before this whole damn blog becomes one endless stream of 24 affection, a few notes from Life as I Know it: 1. Pigpen (that’s my car, dear Pigpen) is not functioning. She has thrown a major temper tantrum and refuses to start. The key can go in the ignition, but it won’t turn. Attempts […]

24: 11 AM to Noon

Monday, January 17th, 2005

Explosions: 1. They are so behind on their quota now. Kidnappings: None. Approximate Body Count: 1. No, seriously, just the one. I know, it’s rare. Tortured Prisoners: None. Times Jack Bauer Defied Orders: 1 Romantic, Mushy Moments: 1, sortof. Jack had the decency to look green when Audrey’s possible demise was mentioned in a phone […]

24: 9 AM to 11 AM

Monday, January 10th, 2005

Yes, a second day of 24 this week! Explosions: None. What a disappointment. Kidnappings: None. Well, see, no NEW ones. There are still people kidnapped from the last two hours. Approximate Body Count: 2 Tortured Prisoners: 1 (I don’t approve of this, mind you. It just always seems to be a big part of the […]
