Well, this will be the last time I blog here until 9/18 or so, when I will be back from vacation. Barring a European internet cafe, or some such nonsense. (How does one get the little accent on the e? I feel like a dumdum not having it!) I know you will all miss me terribly, but these things happen form time to time! ;)

I've had it suggested I try to see Legoland, which I am led to understand is an entire miniture village made out of Legos outside of Copenhagen. I'm there!

The "situation" at work made the newspapers! Well, it was in the Gainesville newspapers, anyways! And after I was scared it would be all covered up! I won't put a link to it (that would be kind of tacky, eh?), but anyone who checks out the Gainesville Sun, and looks for references to UF professors and time card scams, would probably find it. It was actually one of the MJ Morning Show "Morons in the News" articles!! Not that many people would know about the MJ Morning Show, which is a radio show around here, but Morons in the News speaks for itself.

I just know that at least one of you will go look! It's a good article! ;) Let your curiosity guide you!

Anyhow, I'm packed, ready to go, and a little excited! It will be interesting to see other countries. I'm especially curious if there will be any kind of hoo haw about the 5th anniversary of 9/11. And I do mean both positive and negative hoo haw. I'll keep you posted!!

I also have to learn how to get pictures in here, in case I take some. Got a new camera from my wife for the trip, so we'll see how badly I can mess it up!! :)

Song of the day for today will be a song I don't know the title of, nor who sings it, but it annoys me on the radio on a daily basis, so I will just put the part of it I know up here, and everyone will scream in pain, like I am right now.

"Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me?
Don't you wish your girlfriend was a freak like me?
Don't you? Don't you?"

I might have squished together two verses there, but it hurts either way! :)

I'm sure it'll win 12 grammys, I hate it that much! :(

Well, I'll talk to you all in a few weeks! Seeya!

That song is by the talentless group The Pussycat Dolls. They're almost as bad as Fergie.

Dave Barry can add "Morons in the News" to his list of great names for rock bands.

Enjoy the trip, Aaron!

Dear Scott Hardie, So. Reading the latest in geek news. Oh, what is this? Go »

20-IX-2006 or Man, those Samoans sure are a surly bunch.

That was the punchline to a Bloom County comic I read many years ago. It always cracks me up...which makes no sense, really. Go »

6-IX-2007 or Not again! :(

I really really really hate birthdays! Just a reminder that you've been around another year, and that your time is shorter by 365 days (or so). :( I'm cranky like that. Go »

2-VIII-2007 or I Don't Have an Aunt Flo...

but I had issues! Unfortunately, last week went to Hades, thanks to an unscheduled visit from Uncle Intestinal Discomfort. I was pinned to my bathroom from Wednesday night into Saturday morning, with no internet access, so I was unable to even try to make a showing in the GOO finals. Go »

9-VIII-2007 or Going to the Kickball!

I am ready to go!! :) I really think we might win one tonight. If not, I'll still get to go to the bar and drink my sorrows away! Go »

17-VII-2007 or To See Or Not To See...(SPOILERS?)

I have two revelations to make, one of which is truly momentous and possibly a sign of the Apocalypse, the other is just me being stupid, essentially. I'll deal with the stupid one first, just so that the second will be even more earth-shattering! And I know that most of you will be disappointed by the second revelation, after I've hyped it up so much, but trust me, to me if to no one else, this truly is an amazing turn of events. Go »
