Whoopdee Doo

Thursday, March 30th, 2006

Bit confused on certain matters of office etiquette. The scene: I work in a not-entirely-friendly office. People don’t like each other very much. We are split into little offices and fiefdoms up and down this hallway. I got along very well with my last boss, but I think that might have just been a function […]

Doctor Who Series Two!

Tuesday, March 28th, 2006

Doctor Who starts again on April 15, 2006!!! ? At least it does in the UK. And in those totally immoral households that dare to download the thing. Damned kids these days.

Steelers Come to AZ

Tuesday, March 28th, 2006

WHEEEEE! The Cardinals will open their preseason — and their brand-spankin’ new digs — versus the Steelers. Listen very carefully, because I will say this only once: Color me there. I WILL BE THERE. Hell nor high water. Whatever may occur, I will find you I will see this game in person, even if if […]

Monday, Monday

Monday, March 27th, 2006

Hullo, all. It’s a rather overcast morning here in the Valley of the Sun, with the promise/hint of rain later today. I had a few sprinkles on my windshield today, which is enough to get any Zonie hot and bothered. We love our rain, we do, ’cause otherwise we’ll be in a drought this summer […]

All The News That’s Fit to RSS

Friday, March 24th, 2006

Anyone else out there playing with RSS feeds? I’m using Google’s reader, which seems okay, but I have this feeling there’s a better one out there somewhere for me. Despite the reader, I am enjoying having all these news bits at my fingertips. I can weed out stuff I don’t care about, which on most […]

World Water Day

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2006

Lots of people in many countries don’t have clean drinking water. Go home and fix your leaky faucets.

AWWWWWWWW

I must have him. He will look fantastic next to my Cthulhu, Dalek, and Killer Rabbit. ? She is pretty danged cute, too.

Group Work

Monday, March 20th, 2006

To exorcise some of the angst I am feeling over my group project, I put up a question to a LiveJournal grad students group. There have been some very good comments thus far. I certainly feel better about things. ? And, to be entirely fair, the guy who is writing our paper has recently sent […]

Important Discovery

Monday, March 20th, 2006

Lost in the shuffle of the past week was a rather important discovery that was made about me. ? I bought Doctor Who stuff when I was younger. Somewhere in the bowels of the house, my father found a stack of three Doctor Who comics that I had bought when I was, like, ten. I […]

Reviews: “The Unit,” “24,” “V for Vendetta,” “Battlestar Galactica,” and “Doctor Who”

Sunday, March 19th, 2006

I am convinced that “The Unit” is meant as a right-wing propaganda prop. This makes me rather sad because I love Dennis Haysbert. In my house, Mr. Haysbert has been our one true President this past few years, having played the role so well on “24.” But this, sadly, is not “24,” kiddies. It is […]
