I know that I am so late to the party here, but has everyone seen this Mythbusters show? I just watched it again for the first time a few weeks ago, and that is some good stuff right there! Holy crap!! They took some old Civil War rifles and test fired them at each other, hoping to prove or disprove the myth of two bullets hitting in mid-air and fusing. I won't spoil the ending, but it rocked! I need to get a job like that! I could disprove myths!!

The ski area in the town I grew up in made the list of Top Ski Areas in Maine, based on a CNN.com article. I assume it was more than just one guy who decided this. Way to go, Rumford! Makes me wish I'd learned to ski when I was a wee lad. Not that I was particularly wee as a lad...though I was.

The song of the day! Gosh, it's been a while! I'll tell you all what! The other week, I was at a wedding of one of my wife's friends (did I already say this? I don't remember, and I can't go back and check...oh, wait, yeah I can!)

OK, I checked, and there was nothing there about it. I should put in a picture from the wedding! Let me look to see if I have any non-embarrassing ones. But later.

Anyways, I was at the wedding, and the bride and groom are great people. Truly awesome! Not all my wife's friends are awesome, but that's an argument for another day. Anyhow, the bride (who, I must note is by no means the typical rap fan...think of Michael Bolton from Office Space, only a woman) loves the rap music! Out of nowhere, in the middle of the reception, what comes out of the speakers? Why it's "YEAH!" by Usher, and Ludacris, and Lil' Jon! You've probably never seen a whiter group than us, all up on the floor, screaming like...drunk white people, which we really were. Not so surprising, now that I think on it. Anyhow, that's the song of the day until the next time I update this blog. Which could be soon or a long ways away. I should change the title from "Miracle ASSassin" to "It's A Miracle You Updated, You ASS".

My outfit's ridiculous, in the club lookin' so conspicuous. heh.

25-IV-2007 or Ze pearl is in ze river

That's a quote from a weird movie I saw back in the day. I think it had Chevy Chase and more vertically challenged people than I can count (including the famous Billy Barty!). The details are sketchy at this point, but I believe there was a secret message to be passed to the person who gave the code phrase, "The pearl is in the river." Go »

7-III-2007 or What You Don't Want to Hear

I understand that hearing about my stupid medical situations is probably annoying to everyone. Too bad. It's where I'm at, so I like to use my blog as a venting point, or at least to try to put down what I'm thinking/feeling. Go »

I had to do it! When you find it, you'll know. :) Me, a narcissist? 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 »

12-II-2009 or Say What Now?

I got my little Ticketmaster e-mail, about upcoming shows in my area, and I got really excited, because I looked it over quick, and I saw "An Evening With Dio"! So as I dance around the office, with "Holy Diver" running through my head and a joyous smile blossoming on my face, I look a little closer... An Evening With Il Divo. Go »

Random filler is entered here, such that you won't see what is to come on the front page. Not that it would be so bad if you did, but I want people who read this to read this purposely, not accidentally because it was on the front page. If you read a posting called "Oh, You Won't Like This...", Go »
