It's Friday, so it must be time for Aaron's pointless ramblings on subjects various and nefarious, topics wonderful and blunder-full, and generally funky and spunky.

Yeah, that last one wasn't so good, but the first two weren't much with the funny either. :(

Anyhow, it should be an uneventful weekend, so I'm looking forward to that. Seems like I've been running around too much, so the relaxation time should be good!

OK, House M.D., is getting a little close to glorifying the main characters drug abuse (if this is a spoiler to you, it's only because you've never watched the show, and darn it, it's your own fault! Geez!) I mean, it's recently getting to the point where I think there is never going to be any sort of real, LASTING negative light shed on it. House is getting away with his addiction constantly, and he weasels his way out of every problem that comes his way. I am certain that some might say it's a pretty accurate reflection on how it really is (and, yes, I do agree that the more prominent you are, the less likely an addiction is to ever have any negative consequences to you...I don't think I have to give examples), but I think it would be nice if there was some real punishment/penalty. Is it just me?

Note to you people (you know who you are): Please stop. Seriously, I can't deal with another season of stupidity paraded about on TV. Make this the last season of American Idol. Let it die. It's time. Don't you realize that once a quasi-parody movie has been made that stars Hugh Grant, it's time to cash in your chips and go home?!

Should there be a song of the day/week/however long the song lasts? I guess you don't know me too well if you have to ask! I'm leaning towards the lighter side today. I'm going to advocate a nice song that works well as background noise to soothe a person after a long day at the office. The kind of music you don't have to think about, or concentrate on, or deal with. Do you know the kind of music I'm talking about? (Hint: It's not jazz, and its certainly not anything that relates to what is sometimes referred to as a "jam-band") What's up with that anyways? It just goes on and on and on and on and on and on! Sometimes, it's hard to tell when one song ended and another started. And it never sounds the same the artists forget what they played before, so they just make up something similar. That's probably just me, but ti makes me nutty...nuttier!

That's right! It's classical music!! Let's go with "Nocturnes" by Claude Debussy. It's nice, although the second part isn't as suitable for my aformentioned purposes as the first and third parts. It meshes well, though! :)

Well, I hate to work, but I have to! See you laters!! :P

I have never watched A.I. nor will I, it ranks up there with survivor as TV shows the world would be better of without for me.

As for House has gotten so depressing for me, the plot lines and back-story don't seem to change. I'm actually kinda pissed because I used to love the show but now I don't watch at all and haven't since the 3rd episode with David Morse. Maybe when this story arc changes but for now I can do without

What the?!

Lori, what did I just look at?! I recognized Irresponsible Captain Tylor, and that was it!

24-VI-2019 or Your move!

So, some of my co-workers (though technically subordinates, but I hate those kinds of terms) went digging around on the interwebs and found me here on Funeratic. They said I should write more blog posts because they are great. Ok. Go »

27-X-2009 or Linking For Great Justice!

This should be the link to Iceland pictures. If this doesn't work, I'll have to send the link through e-mail, which would involve getting e-mail addresses for anyone who wanted to see pictures. I think the pictures are not worth the anxiety of knowing I have your e-mail address, but we shall see... Go »

14-VII-2009 or Oh. Didn't I Mention That??

Ha! I just saw the funniest thing, but I shouldn't make mention of it, since it involves images of me online on Youtube cursing and being a total dick. It's real funny, but of course, if I speak of it, or name the event, then everyone will see me being a weirdo, and they might think that's really how I roll. Go »

29-I-2008 or Clarification

Based on a certain conversation in TC, I just want to say that I am fully and totally aware of the effects of what I have written/will write in this blog could have on me in the future or sooner even. I don't care. I wasn't and I'm really still not ashamed or regretful or a word of it. Go »

21-VII-2019 or Now picture me eating every single one of those fifty gross, sticky hot dogs!

Seriously, if this is not the pinnacle of Emma Stone's acting It is. I will not be convinced otherwise. Go »

6-X-2006 or It's a holiday! I'm at work!

It is a little known fact that most of the University of Florida system shuts down on the Friday of Homecoming weekend. Unless you are deemed an essential employee, you would be sitting at home right now, possibly with an adult beverage in hand, relaxing. Or, you might be at the Gator Growl, which is some kind of pep rally or something, to get you psyched up for the big game, against LSU of all teams! Go »
