In MY Opinion…

Tuesday, February 28th, 2006

Some people shouldn’t dress in drag. Barry Bonds is one of those people. Even if he’s impersonating Paula Abdul. In Scottsdale.

Back-Room Dealings Alive and Well

Tuesday, February 28th, 2006

This is a rather telling commentary by Molly Ivins, a liberal commentator. It’s quite the look at how stuff actually gets done in Washington. It’s not how you think it happens. Or maybe it is. I’m not surprised, personally. Legislators have this habit of sticking weird stuff into bills to get their own way.

Who is coming…

Saturday, February 25th, 2006

… to the Sci-Fi channel, and they finally have some promotional stuff out there for it. Scifi.com has the teaser ad up, for anyone interested. Here’s an amusing thread on their message boards about Doctor Who. (I saw that “Who 1” license plate in the parking garage at Gallifrey. Hmm.)

Back Into The Frey

Monday, February 20th, 2006

Back at it, apres vacances. Lucky me. The Husband and I took the day off from work to recover from our weekend, but I still had to go to class tonight. It was a very short class, thankfully. So, how was it? everyone (or noone) asks. It was quite amusing, really. I learned tons about […]

“What Happens At Gallifrey…”

Saturday, February 18th, 2006

Things I’ve Learned Thus Far This Weekend: 1. I hate LA freeways. Who the hell thought these on-ramps were adequate?! There is NO organized system at work here, which is quite unlike the damn Phoenix-area freeways, which actually make SENSE. Holy guano, people!! 2. Pasadena really is a bit far away from the airport to […]

Happy Stupid Cupid Day

Tuesday, February 14th, 2006

Yes, it’s that time of year when a nearly-naked chubby baby shoots us in the ass with an arrow, and we somehow think it’s adorable. The Husband and I exchanged V-Day gifts. This year’s theme? Technology. He got a book on CD; I got… a camera phone. Yes, that’s right, yours truly has her own […]

I Heart Geeks

Monday, February 13th, 2006

I have to slug it through today, tomorrow, and Wednesday. But after that? It’s VACATION. Oh yeah. Uh huh. Vacaaaaaaaayyyyyy. The Husband and I will be heading to SoCal for a little bit of fun and a whole lotta geekiness. What’s so geeky? We’re going to the Doctor Who convention in Los Angeles this weekend! […]

La Cucaracha

Friday, February 10th, 2006

You have to admire cockroaches. Okay, you don’t HAVE to. I know they’re creepy and icky. I know they make me squeal like a girlygirl whenever I see one. Still, though, there’s a certain something about cockroaches you just have to admire. “Yeah, you killed me with some nasty-ass pesticide. Fine, I get it, I’m […]

The Whole Cartoon Controversy

Wednesday, February 8th, 2006

Have a look at a political cartoon featured in Monday’s State Press, ASU’s venerable student daily newspaper. I think it’s pretty damned brilliant. People, in general, are very stupid. If your knee-jerk reaction is to disagree, think carefully of all those times people rioted after a sports championship game, or killed someone by driving drunk, […]

Valentine’s Day Commercials You Will Never See

Tuesday, February 7th, 2006

In honor of the WORST Valentine’s Day ads on TV and radio EVER… They are always really obnoxious, but I think this year’s a whole new low. 1. Version 1 Little girl: Ryan told me he likes you! Woman: He told me, too! Look at this beautiful diamond necklace he gave me! Little girl: Wow! […]
