I have just two things to say, and I will say them loud and proud!

1) I honestly would love to see U. Florida win tonight in the BCS championships. Love it, love it, love it! I don't see it happening. Not in a million. Tomorrow, I might look like a fool, but I'll say it here and now:

Ohio State 31, Florida 21

And that's being generous. Florida will probably only get 17, but I gave them the benefit of the TD over the FG. This also assumes they keep Tebow off the field. Ohio State won't fall for the cheap stunts, so let's hope the Anointed One Urban Meyer isn't stupid enough to try.

2) Amy Austin now has the best picture of any user on goo.tc, and we can only hope to reach such a lofty goal. I'm honestly speechless. AWESOME!!

3) (I lied.) Rocky Balboa, while not the best movie in the world, was not half as bad as most critics are making it out to be. I'll avoid spoilers, but it seems to me that the movie was about as dignified as it could (or should) have been. It won't win any awards, but it's worth a rental just to complete the series.

Two Replies to 8-I-2007 or Mid-week Madness!!!

1) Ditto... I'm feeling you on all counts, all the way.
No way, Aaron -- you're crazy -- I'm predicting the Gators 41-14!!! But, I'm all decked out in my orange & blue to go watch the game at some friends' house over burgers & brie (!) -- party on.

2) Awww, shucks. Did Scott tell you that I submitted that photo just for you??? ;-) Flattery will get you everywhere... thanks for making my day, Aaron.

Thus you all see why I rarely go out on a limb. :)

Great job, Gators!!

Amy, Scott didn't tell me, but when I saw you were wearing the "Big in Japan" t-shirt...I knew. ;P

11-VIII-2006 or Scutellum with Sublateral Grooves

Just a random part of an identification key for parasitic wasps I'm struggling with at work today. Random titles are hard to come up with some days. :( Well, who loves working overtime? Go »

Things I Learned From the People's Choice Awards 2018

Just looking over the results, and I saw a few things that I wanted to comment/ask about. Feel free to clarify and/or put in your new revelations! :) 1) What the heck is Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments and why am I just hearing about this?? Go »

23-VIII-2008 or Seen On T-shirt

This is not a great day for writing for me, as the loyal readers may or may not remember. I leave you with this phrase I saw on a t-shirt today: Life is like a jalapeno pepper. What you do today can burn your ass tomorrow. 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 »

25-IV-2008(ii) or A Look Inside My Head

I've been obsessing about something I said, and I want to blog about it. Here is what I am now thinking, along with added special what's going on inside my head commentary! All italics are internal monologues/voices in my head, and regular text is the other side of my thinking process. Go »

22-II-2007 or Speaking of crap...

I wrestled with not saying this, but I've been transparent about everything thus far, so here's the latest medical drama. I getting a colonoscopy tomorrow. That involves a lot of "cleansing" this evening, and a lot of I can't eat anything today and tomorrow. Go »
