My buddy Tom and I are in Norm’s on Smith Street right now. As these three extremely scantily clad girls left Norm’s, one walked up to us and said “you should be dressed up.” Another one of the girls said “they are dressed up, they’re nerds.” Wow.
Had I known at the time I upgraded to a BlackJack that I was going to get a major promotion and raise three months later, I would have shelled out the extra cash for the BlackBerry instead. My BlackBerry envy increases by the day.
Fuel is really, really hurting without Brett Scallions. Their new singer’s voice just has no body to it at all. He’s definitely straining. It’s eerily reminiscent of Eddie Van Halen telling Gary Cherone to sing out of his range for Van Halen III all over again so that it would sound like Sammy Hagar. And […]
Here’s the rundown of what made Monday…well, Monday. A-Rod pulled off the ultimate double play Sunday night — he thought himself above receiving an award from Hank Aaron, for God’s sake, and then his agent went on, during the middle of World Series Game 4, and announced he was leaving the Yankees.

This is an aside. When I have very tiny things to rant about, this is the mechanism I will use. Thus, expect many more of these. :) You can comment on them and interact with them like any old blog post, too. What they won’t do is use up so much space and appear on […]
Life as a New England sports fan must be pretty damn good right now. They have a world champion in baseball and a football team that could almost be charged with murdering other teams, they’re that good. Congrats, Boston, on your seventh title. And congrats to Mike Lowell on his MVP award — he’s truly […]
That first point release is out, so time to upgrade. :) See you on the flip side. Update: Looks like it’s up and everything is running quite fine. Word! I need to now get the new tagging system integrated…
Barring an unforeseen change in conditions, my family’s houses are unscathed, and they’ve been allowed back home. Words escape me about how fantastic this is. The wind has died down considerably from what I’ve been told — let’s hope they stay down, so the firefighters have a fighting chance of getting this one under control. […]
