It's A Bad Idea

But I think he likes it! Oh man, who knew that Tar had videos? If only Tar had gotten back together back in September for the Touch and Go 25th. Anyway, check out the video for Tar's Goethe.

Feeling A Bit Randy

dremos1

Earlier today, I was slogging my way through the workday in a caffeine induced haze when I received an odd delivery from the mailroom--a massive poster tube. It was odd in that I hadn't ordered anything to be delivered to my office. At first, I shook the tube, kind of wondering what could possibly be in there and who would have sent me a poster. There was a bit of a thump when I shook the tube up and down (CALL THE BOMB SQUAD!). Putting aside the safety concerns of the mystery package, I tore open one end and slid out the contents: A massive, life-sized poster of Randy Moss. I have to say that at this point I was really, really confused. I've seen these posters advertised on tv before, but I'm not sure why one ended up being shipped to me at work. The package was addressed to me, so I'm guessing that it's not an accident and is some kind of joke by a friend of mine. A joke that lacks any context or meaning, you guys! So, whomever ordered a Fathead poster of Randy Moss for me, you got some 'splaining to do, because this doesn't even make sense as a joke, since there's no context for it at all. It's entirely random, but I guess if your goal was just to add a surreal touch to my Friday afternoon, well then, well played.

It's The Final Countdown!

Alarm

7 days from now, at just about this time in the evening, I'll officially be done with grad school. I've pretty much wrapped up my work except for a bit of proofreading and doing the presentation next week, so it's basically time to start celebrating.

Things that are a possibly on tap for this weekend so far:
1. Bowling, which I haven't done in ages due to all of the knee surgery and rehab nonsense.
2. The new Bond movie which--in a change of pace--is apparently really good.
3. Watching some English Premier League soccer over brunch at Lucky Bar.
Give me a call or send me an e-mail if you think you're interested in any of the above. Plans subject to change at any given moment!

Oh, Shut Up

To the whiney gentleman behind me in line at the polling station this morning: While it is the responsibility of the election officials to make sure that the folks handing out campaign literature outside stay 40 feet away the polling location, it's not the officials' fault if the Republicans failed to show up with campaign materials at this station. And no, equal time doesn't apply here, that's strictly a broadcasting rule.

Interesting, Mystery Flavor Dum Dum Pops are actually the result of mixing two flavors when changing batches. That's one childhood puzzle solved. [via Girlhacker]
