The Weekend that Was

Monday, January 30th, 2006

The appreciation call event was just short of a disaster. At least, that’s how I view it. We did manage to talk to some people, and we did find a few problems to fix, but I can’t shake the feeling that I could have done so much better. This was really my first solo gig […]

Insert Obligatory Title Here

Thursday, January 26th, 2006

I just can’t think of one. So, the news websites are aggravating me a little bit. We have the big story about Hamas winning the Palestinian elections (oh my, where is THAT going?) which is, thankfully, dominating most of the pages I’ve seen. However, right BELOW that story, very close by, is nearly always some […]

School Daze and White Uniforms

Wednesday, January 25th, 2006

The Steelers are more important than school at the moment, so I will start there: Bill Cowher has decided that the team will wear the white away jerseys in the Super Bowl. Apparently the NFL designated the Steelers as the “home team” for the game, but Cowher says that because they aren’t in Pittsburgh, it’s […]

Wow. I mean, WOW. I was quite confident the Steelers could take the Broncos, but they made it look like it had been a foregone conclusion. This is all the more impressive because they did it all on the road, obviating that whole home field advantage- thing they seem to tout so much in the […]

Unhappy Camper Pitches Tent of Woe

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006

It’s always somewhat of a blow when you realize that somebody you thought was a friend turns out to be something different. Sure, I knew she was far from perfect, and was entirely capable of backstabbing, but I just never figured she would do that to me. So, yeah, I’m a chump, because I think […]

Huge, Earth-Shattering, Massively Important News That Will Change Our Lives As We Know It

Thursday, January 12th, 2006

The Sci-Fi Channel has bought the US broadcast rights to the new Doctor Who Series! SQUEE. The broadcasts will begin in March on Friday nights, which likely coincides with the season end of Battlestar Galactica and the two Stargate shows. Sci-Fi also has an option to get Series Two (with David Tennant as the Doctor.) […]

Tacos and Wine

Tuesday, January 10th, 2006

Yes, the two can apparently coexist in the same meal. If you Google Mexican food and wine, you will find a plethora of pages that can advise you on what sort of wine to serve. Most suggest a red wine, like a Spanish red, or a fruity Sauvignon Blanc. Some of these pages get realllllly […]

“Who Are These F-in’ Guys?”

Tuesday, January 10th, 2006

A cultural reference, of course. The D-backs’ projected opening day position players: Shortstop: Craig Counsell Second base: Orlando Hudson Third base: Chad Tracy Right field: Shawn Green First base: Conor Jackson Left field: Luis Gonzalez Center field: Eric Byrnes Catcher: Johnny Estrada I recognize four names here. Who are those other guys??

Yay Steelers!

Sunday, January 8th, 2006

Yay we won! Yay we continue in the playoffs! Yay we play the Colts next week! Er. Maybe not as big a “yay” as the first two, but… Losing Carson Palmer majorly took the wind out of their sails. They may have played well with Kitna, but something definitely died for the Bengals when Palmer […]
