The song of the day is "Popular" by Nada Surf. I loved this "song" when it first came out! I was riding in my car, and they played a different song ("Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth with Money in My Hand" by Primitive Radio Gods..also a pretty good song...), which I have on a mix album with "Popular". The song of the day it will be! ;)

And, no, there is no other reason for that to be the song of the day! No break-ups, no fights with the wife. :D Actually, things have been more peaceful at home than usual... Yay!!

I have a Halloween party this upcoming Friday. I'm going as a keg of beer. It's a nice costume from Target (pretty sweet, and the price was right...all costumes 10% off right now!!*), and the helmet tap actually works (although the little reservoir doesn't hold a lot of beer...but it does eliminate trips to the real keg!). I wonder what would happen if I asked my wife to do a keg stand... :P

*This offer may only apply to the Target store located at 8151 Martin Luther King Jr. Street, Saint Petersburg, Florida, since each store has their own choice as to what to put on sale/clearance...within reason!

Gotta work...brb

I'm back...and I hope..I don't get hit..in the REAR again.

That commercial is hilarious!! Burt Bacarach (I doubt I spelled that correctly, but I don't have time to fix it) is pretty cool in my book...even if he is a bit old. ;)

Does anyone know if we are still in round 2 of guessing the theme to Berserk Wig? I don't know if anyone figured that theme out yet. I need to look into that...

I finally got to the end of Paranoia Agent. It's a pretty good anime series, but it was a little short (13 total episodes). I wonder if it could have been enhanced by being drawn out over a few more episodes, and adding in some stuff? I think so. As a series, it's premise is hard for me to define..except as slightly confusing. It's pretty serious, which usually doesn't work for me, but this time it works fairly well.

We've been watching the old TV series "Soap" at work during lunch breaks, and it's funny! I had forgotten about it, since it originally aired in the early 1980's. Glad to become re-acquainted! I wonder if it would have been as funny back when it first aired. The themes are tame for nowadays (extra-marital affairs, mothers and daughters sharing partners, homosexuals considering sex change operations), but back in the 1980's, these were (to my recollection...I was 7 in 1980!) pretty controversial topics! Well, until I invent the time machine, we'll never know.

Well, I have to get back at it. See you next week...or so. :P

Awesome! I got to see the entire Evil Dead trilogy!

The party was OK. I had a pretty good time. Being asocial makes parties not so much fun, but I did what I could. I didn't embarrass my wife, so that's what it's all about, eh? :)
