We’re Back!

Thing I Learned
1) Casinos are VERY cold so as to keep you awake.
2) Casinos are “smoker-friendly” so as not to interrupt your gambling.
3) In casinos, drinks are cheap (or free), and not watered-down. We wouldn’t want to make unsound gambling decisions, would we? Can you sense the sarcasm? Good, because I’m laying it on pretty thick.
4) I miss my dogs when I’m gone.
5) Any more than 24 hours in a casino environment is too much.
6) I REALLY don’t want to go back to work on Monday, but that’s another story.
That’s it for now. It’s good to be back among normal people. Or at least among people with whom I am familiar.

And We’re Off!

That’s right, the time has finally come for gambling and other debauchery. Kevin and I are headed to the casinos for a few nights of sin. Hooray! Of course, we could always come back early if we run out of money. I’ll let everyone know how it turns out…

Star Treatment?

Yet again, Winona Ryder is making headlines. Her attorney says that “her case has been being treated differently and more seriously than other shoplifting cases”. Does that mean that your average citizen could steal some stuff and not get prosecuted? Man, reality really does bite.

This One’s For Emily

It’s a sick, sick obsession, but to each his own.

Emily's Love Puppet

Get Your Goat?

And the sad thing is, this made NATIONAL news.

Today’s Pick

When You Only Have 5 Minutes Did you blow off the assigned reading? Here’s your chance to make it up. Greg Nagan, the author, writes for A Prairie Home Companion , so you know it’s funny. His adaptation of Catcher in the Rye is enough to make you wet yourself. But nothing is funnier than Dante’s Inferno written in limerick form. Go ahead, laugh.

How Many Do You Know?

Wow. I went to college. Hell, I work in a bookstore. I am the person everyone hates: I can define and spell just about every word in the English language. At least that’s what I thought until I read over the list. Now, how many do you know? Go on. Learn something.

What Sleep?

So this vacation thing has seriously screwed up my sleep schedule (not that I had much of one in the first place). See, normally, I’m in bed by 10:00, since I get up at 5:00. Now that I don’t have to get up in the morning, I can stay up late. This wouldn’t be a problem, except that Kevin goes to bed by 9:30 (he’s an old man). So now, I’m faced with an endless night, and of course I’m not tired, because I didn’t get up until 11:00 this morning. I guess I’ll just watch some

Because When I Think of Singapore…

Really, what are they trying to do? Who do they think their competition is? Shakespeare said “Comparisons are odorous”, and I think I see what he meant. I would hate to compare “the new Singapore” to, say, the Haight in the Summer of 1968. Yeah, baby!

Parker Posey is My Hero

So this is what I’m watching tonight. If you haven’t seen House of Yes , please go rent it. And if you’ve never heard of Parker Posey, then I just don’t know you. Now go, entertain yourselves.

A Quote for Kev

Here’s one even he can appreciate:

Paulie Walnuts You’re not gonna believe this. The guy killed 16 Czechoslovakians. He was an interior decorator.

Christopher His house looked like shit.


Something to Ponder

Joy is wisdom, time an endless song.
-William Butler Yeats

Read This

Blue Cats Just in case you ever wondered if God has a sense of humor, here’s proof. It’s a surprisingly easy read (as in, you can finish it in a day), and you’ll go to sleep smarter than when you woke up. Which is more than I can say for myself today. To buy it, or to read a review, click here.


Today Wasn’t a Complete Waste

I did the dishes.

I’m Bored!

What the hell? For THREE years I’ve been waiting for a week’s worth of time all to myself. Let me tell you: it SUCKS. The no work thing is cool, but there is NOTHING to do. All my friends are at THEIR jobs, and Kev is off playing golf (although he calls it “working”). Of course, as my mother would say, there is always something to do, and I guess I could clean the house. Wait. No. I think I’ll just go back to bed.
