Fishing & Gambling - that same feeling


Often when I go fishing, I will see fish jumping around the boat, but do I get one on my hook? Nooooooo.

So, what happened at Vegas? Bratworse and I sit down at one of the old-fashioned nickel slots (they took a maximum of 3 coins. Ask anyone who's been to a casino recently, how likely is that?). I give her $5 and myself $5 and sit down to waste some time. About 8 minutes later, an older filipino lady sits down next to me and within 5 minutes, I hear a gasp and the unmistakable sounds of winnings being totaled up. I glance over and of course, that lady hit the major jackpot (it was a progressive carousel we were at). $212 on friggin nickel slots.

Fishing and gambling: two sides of the same torturous coin.


God I Love Geeks #1

I just said to my pal who's a fellow WoW'er and I meant it literally:

"Have fun storming the castle!" (Quick name that movie - i know, it's an easy one).

He's planning on doing MC runs all weekend.

A Good Laugh


Okay, found this on the Huffington Post today. It's an interview with Saul/Paul of Tarsus.

At around 10 years old, I was struggling with this great theological question and to this day, pretty much the only answer given to me was "You just got to have faith."

My question was a reasonable question, though the reactions to it made it seem like it was an unreasonable question. It was, "Why did God/Jesus bother to have 12 disciples but then had to use a weird angry person like Saul to start the church, someone who never met Jesus?"

Think about it, folks.

And on that note, I have a book to recommend to you all: Lamb, The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal.

Diluting the Washington Post's Reputation

Yeah, I'd say the Washington Post's reputation has been diluted. But not by Dan Froomkin who is my FAVORITE columnist. Try looking around at your biggest star there. Yeah, Woodward. Wouldn't you say that he was the biggest dilution to their reputation this past year? Mr. Bend Over Bob?

Bad Days

I am really beginning to detest November and December. Nothing is ever good enough for either, juggling becomes the fashion and the drums in the background staccato out anger. November & December are the months out of the year that we are driven to unpack our luggage and deal with our moth-eaten garb from the past. Will we learn that the clothes don't fit anymore? Or do we try them on for size, refeeling anxieties of yore? Guess what human nature dictates?


Not Unreasonable

But apparently I am.

Kurtz Poses a Dumb Question (Of Course)

Instead of focusing on the part of Howard Kurtz's article that *REALLY* steamed me, (the part where he talks about the Dems in disarray or the part where the media is biased in terms of Murtha - Hey Howie, how about paying attention to the polls? When America was gung-ho for war, how much did you media types put emphasis on giving voice to those of us screaming that there were NO connections between Al Qaeda and Iraq? Huh? What's that? Less than your paper's giving voice to Joe (I've got my head up Bush's ass) Lieberman?) I'm going to focus on the trivial.

Simply cause it really isn't so trivial.

In this current post, he talks about Jennifer Aniston forbidding photos (through an attorney) that were taken WITHOUT PERMISSION from a papparrazi to be published on the internet nor any magazines

This is what Howard the Yuck says:

Observation No. 1: They're already on the Internet.

Observation No. 2: How come it's okay for her to pose for a topless shot (only partially hidden by an arm) for the cover of GQ?
Okay, Howie. How about I come over and take a picture of your wienie for publication? You have problems with it? Why? Cause you didn't give permission? Cause you don't want people to see it?

Look, it was okay for her to POSE for a topless shot because it was her decision you DOLT! Do you even friggin realize that the equivalent of your inane question is: just cause someone had sex before, it's okay to rape her/him.

Too Good to Last?

So at 3:20 pm today, I glanced down at my watch and realized Bratworse should be getting out of class. Soon after, I realized that a good mood had snuck up on me and that a smile spread across my face. Now at 3:58 pm, I'm starting to think that me in a good mood was a bad sign and it's too good to last and that the next call I'm going to get, instead of being her asking me to pick her up, is the police calling me to identify her body.

So, PMS much?

Fun Fact #1


Fun little fact I learned recently. Did you know that glass, even in its solid state, still flows? If you go look at medieval castles and if they still have their original panes, the glass is thicker at the bottom (cause of gravity) than at the top.

Cool, ain't it?
