Sad day...

I had to send it back. I thought I was the lucky one with getting a launch day 360, but I was wrong. Screen freezing after 5 or less minutes of play, then, today, the red circle of death. I shipped it out today, and all I have left is an empty space with cables laying around.

Congrats to Chad and Jackie.

Red Bull and NyQuil

A few month ago, I had a cold. So I went to the store and bought up some cold pills and NyQuil. Only I didn't buy the national brand, I opted for the store brand (Meijer in this case). I didn't pay much attention, but insted of buying the red / cherry flavor, I accidentally got the green / original flavor. Eventually I got over my cold and didn't need to take any of the green stuff. But alas, a new cold has hit me, and I am forced to take this foul concoxion. Suprisingly, I found out that this green not only tastes exactly like Jagermeister, it also burns going down, taken from a shot glass (of sorts), and gets you f'ed up! Although I haven't yet tried it I'm very curious as to how well this green, generic NyQuil will mix with Red Bull. I can't imagine it would taste much different than Red Bull 'n' Jager. I'm just afraid that I might die from the mixture. That's the first rule of 6th grade drug education. Don't mix uppers and downers. If anyone else has the guts to give this a try, let me know how it turns out. We may be on to something here...

my little political post

ok, i voted absentee several days ago since i might not be in the country on election day, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2006. i was almost tricked into voting for something i'm against do to political semantics.

i'm not what i call a smoker... i do it to keep emma from smoking so much. by far, not a seasoned veteran, so i'm all for banning smoking. issue 4 and issue 5 are related to smoking, and if you want to basically BAN smoking aside from in your house, you want to vote NO!! on issue 4 and YES!! on issue 5.

the way issue 4 is written, as you can see word for word on the link above is "do you want do ban smoking... (you think, yes, i'll vote yes), then as you go on, "EXCEPT in..." and it lists just about everywhere. it is a wordplay hoping that ohioans are idiots who don't read past the first line of the LAW you'd be enacting. so please, read carefully and VOTE on november 7th. thanks.

Report: Impala to replace Monte Carlo in Cup races.

Report: Impala to replace Monte Carlo in Cup races.

ESPN.com news services

The most successful car in Nextel Cup racing history is reportedly about to be history.
According to a report in the Charlotte Observer, NASCAR has given General Motors permission to phase out the Monte Carlo SS, which has the most Cup wins of any model with 400, and replace it with the Impala SS. Sources told the Observer an Impala SS built by Hendrick Motorsports will be unveiled at the official announcement Friday at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
The Impala SS will run in 16 races next season and will only be used in Cup competition, according to the Observer, because it will serve as Chevrolet's version of NASCAR's "car of tomorrow." In races not using the "car of tomorrow," teams will still run Monte Carlos.
The first Monte Carlo in Cup competition was on the pole for the 1971 World 600 at what is now Lowe's Motor Speedway.

God forbit somebody exercises the right they are fighting for us

By Charlie Brennan, Rocky Mountain News
October 3, 2006
A Denver-area man filed a lawsuit today against a member of the Secret Service for causing him to be arrested after he approached Vice President Dick Cheney in Beaver Creek this summer and criticized him for his policies concerning Iraq.

Attorney David Lane said that on June 16, Steve Howards was walking his 7-year-old son to a piano practice, when he saw Cheney surrounded by a group of people in an outdoor mall area, shaking hands and posing for pictures with several people.

According to the lawsuit filed at U.S. District Court in Denver, Howards and his son walked to about two-to-three feet from where Cheney was standing, and said to the vice president, "I think your policies in Iraq are reprehensible," or words to that effect, then walked on.

Ten minutes later, according to Howards' lawsuit, he and his son were walking back through the same area, when they were approached by Secret Service agent Virgil D. "Gus" Reichle Jr., who asked Howards if he had "assaulted" the vice president. Howards denied doing so, but was nonetheless placed in handcuffs and taken to the Eagle County Jail.

The lawsuit states that the Secret Service agent instructed that Howards should be issued a summons for harassment, but that on July 6 the Eagle County District Attorney's Office dismissed all charges against Howards.

The lawsuit filed today alleges that Howards was arrested in retaliation for having exercised his First Amendment right of free speech, and that his arrest violated his Fourth Amendment protection against unlawful seizure.

Eat, Drink, & be Merry 2

Just a quick reminder from the old nag of a wife.... J & I are having our open house on Saturday for anyone in Columbus! Come any time after 2, and eat drink and be merry one more time! (posted by the wife, due to my husbands lack of communication skills)

Not quite the badgers, but still good.

This is fun. Quick 14 seconds.

Btown in da News

Ok, so it doesn't explicitly say Bellaire, but it mentions Btown's Nate Davis. When he was little (I must have been around the ripe old age of 11), I accidently knocked him square in the head with a baseball bat. It was the Bellaire Expos vs. Powhatan little league game. I thought I might have killed him. My bad, Nate. Hope we're still tight.

Last Interception Pool
These are the things that happen to you when you're the quarterback at luckless Buffalo: Just when it looks like you've won The Dash's prestigious LIP, along comes a new competitor who sneaks into the competition through the back door.

Duke's Thaddeus Lewis (30) and Texas A&M's Stephen McGee (31) took themselves out of the LIP running by throwing their first picks of the year, leaving Buffalo's Drew Willy (32) as the apparent champion while enjoying a bye week. But up pops Ball State freshman Nate Davis (33), whose 38 passes against Northern Illinois in his first full-time duty of the season gave him enough attempts to be eligible for the NCAA pass efficiency rankings. Davis has not been picked off in 77 collegiate throws. Willy has thrown 41 more times without an oskie, but he doesn't have the title yet.

Now comes the potential for an epic conclusion -- LIP Bowl I, if you will. In a bit of reality drama that "American Idol" wishes it could summon, Willy and Davis will play head-to-head Saturday -- Ball State at Buffalo, 1 p.m. ET kickoff. The Dash will be (the only human) breathlessly monitoring play-by-play from UB Stadium to see whether an LIP champion is crowned.

NC Get Ready For T

For those interested, I'm going to NC to visit C on the 13th and returning to Cbus on the 16th. If anyone wants to go I have plenty of room in the jeep.
